The Second Leaflet of the Original White Rose

Hi everyone. Steve here, again. The response to our fledgling organization has been wonderful. Don’t forget to check out our first class coming up on November 14-15. You can find more details here. All proceeds go to support the Faire Fight Foundation for James and Angela Faire’s legal defense. If you are unable to attend yourself, consider pitching in with the rest of your team and sending your comms guy to attend.

Today I’d like to share with you some excerpts from the original White Rose’s second leaflet. Like the first, they spread their message with leaflets spread around the University of Munich along with a request to copy and share.

Consider this: today it is much easier to distribute and share information. What have you done today to spread a message of Liberty?

It is impossible to engage in intellectual discourse with National Socialism because it is not an intellectually defensible program. It is false to speak of a National Socialist philosophy, for if there were such an entity, one would have to try by means of analysis and discussion either to prove its validity or to combat it. In actuality, however, we face a totally different situation.


At its very inception this movement depended on the deception and betrayal of one’s fellow man; even at that time it was inwardly corrupt and could support itself only by constant lies. After all, Hitler states in an early edition of “his” book (a book written in the worst German I have ever read, in spite of the fact that it has been elevated to the position of the Bible in this nation of poets and thinkers): “It is unbelievable, to what extent one must betray a people in order to rule it.”


If at the start this cancerous growth in the nation was not particularly noticeable, it was only because there were still enough forces at work that operated for the good, so that it was kept under control. As it grew larger, however, and finally in an ultimate spurt of growth attained ruling power, the tumor broke open, as it were, and infected the whole body. The greater part of its former opponents went into hiding. The German
intellectuals fled to their cellars, there, like plants struggling in the dark, away from light and sun, gradually to choke to death.

I hope you read through the whole quote. One might think that, “Well, that’s about Hitler; we’re not in nearly as much trouble at that.” I think it’s critical to recognize that, like our modern “Progressive” movement, the National Socialist movement started slowly. However, there were warnings ahead of time, such as the Hitler quote, “It is unbelievable, to what extent one must betray a people in order to rule it.”

Rahm Emanuel’s quote, “You don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste; it’s an opportunity to do important things that you would otherwise avoid.” leaves the same taste in your mouth when you hear it. When you look at the actions of the current administration, and just about every other administration in recent memory, you can see them behaving in this manner.

Much like the cancerous growth that was Nazi Germany, the cancer of tyranny has been building in our nation for decades. John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” As our nation has continued its decay with communities and families breaking apart, the cancer has grown stronger. That is why TOWR wants to empower individual patriots, so that as we become stronger, we can force the cancer into remission.

Now the end is at hand. Now it is our task to find one another again, to spread information from person to person, to keep a steady purpose, and to allow ourselves no rest until the last man in persuaded of the urgent need of his struggle against this system. When thus a wave of unrest goes through the land, when “it is in the air”, when many join the cause, then in a great final effort this system can be shaken off. After all, and end in terror is preferable to terror without end.


We are not in a position to draw up a final judgment about the meaning of our history. But if this catastrophe can be used to further the public welfare, it will be only by virtue of the fact that we are cleansed by suffering; that we yearn for the light in the midst of deepest night, summon our strength, and finally help in shaking off the yoke which weighs on our world.

There’s not much we can add to that.

No, only by way of example do we want to cite the fact that since the conquest of Poland three hundred thousand Jews have been murdered in this country in the most bestial way. Here we see the most frightful crime against human dignity, a crime that is unparalleled in the whole of history. For Jews, too, are human beings – no matter what position we take with respect to the Jewish question – and a crime of this dimension has been perpetrated against human beings.

Instead of Jews, this time it’s the unborn. Theres not much more bestial than ripping an infant apart and selling their body parts.

It is not too late, however, to do away with this most reprehensible of all miscarriages of government, so as to avoid being burdened with even greater guilt. Now, when in recent years our eyes have been opened, when we know exactly who our adversary is, it is high time to root out this brown horde. Up until the outbreak of the war the larger part of the German people were blinded; the Nazis did not show themselves in their true aspect. But now, now that we have recognized them for what they are, it must be the sole and first duty, the holiest duty of every German to destroy these beasts.

We’d strongly recommend reading the whole thing. You can find it here:
