The neo-Nazi National Alliance is the most sophisticated, best
organized and best financed overtly Hitlerian organization in
the United States. Its leader is William Pierce, a former officer
in the American Nazi Party of George Lincoln Rockwell, and the
author of The Turner Diaries, the fantasy novel reported
to have inspired the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. Over the past
20 years, the National Alliance has been home to, or connected
with, some of America's most violent right-wing terrorists, including
The Order, the most significant right-wing domestic terror group
of the 1980s. In addition to promoting books such as The Turner
Diaries, the National Alliance produces propaganda, often
designed to appeal to neo-Nazi skinheads, denouncing Jews as well
as "black, brown and yellow parasites."
Equal opportunity bigots, the National Alliance also creates propaganda that attacks gays and lesbians, women and feminism, and even the disabled. Such materials are distributed across the country and around the world via printed flyers, Internet postings on the World Wide Web and shortwave radio broadcasts.
