The Sacramento chapter of the National Alliance was the only active working and thriving local organization within the Alliance for the last 5 years previous to its last convening of monthly meetings which was held on October 28th of 2012, when it officially disbanded as a working group in protest over the dismal management of Erich Gliebe over the organization.
The group, as many will recall, was famous for its public relations work, principally setting up large openly National Alliance displays at dozens of major gun shows in the region from Sacramento CA area to Reno & Carson City NV. Additionally, the unit helped support the gun show activities of the Las Vegas, NV and Phoenix AZ groups, getting them started on conducting successful shows on their own. Members also travelled other lengthy distances to promote the Alliance message such as the popular National Vanguard Books display set up at a European Cultural festival in Pasadena CA in 2012.
Long-time members will also recall the group held two of its own successful Euro-Fest cultural events with traditional ethnic entertainment, catered dinners and keynote speakers, one of which was attended by Dr. Pierce about 6 months before he passed away. For a different twist, the group also held a Winter Fest party; a dress-up affair with catered dinner, speeches and a live pro-White band for entertainment. Each of these gatherings had over 100 people in attendance.
Another innovative activity to promote camaraderie, sense of community and provide a family friendly atmosphere for the group was the organizing of their Western Camping Adventures each year and sometimes twice annually, held primarily in desert locations in Nevada as well as California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Indeed, it is not too much to say that this local organization was literally the National Alliance’s public face in the real world, reaching thousands of people in a very personal style over the years and doing it professionally as the group had never been asked to leave any gun show that they presented at, even when angry Jews had lodged complaints about “Nazis” or Leftists agitators tried to cause trouble.
The group helped quite a measure getting Dr. Pierce’s famous novel, The Turner Diaries out to an eager public, selling hundreds of copies over the years mostly as one would expect at the gun shows.
It is also not too much to say that the Sacramento chapter represented the only organizational life left in the National Alliance. Anyone who has access to the NA newsletters will see overwhelming evidence of this or has seen the cutting-edge web site of the Sacramento group before they took it down in October 2012.
The local group’s reaction to Gliebe’s proposed succession of the Williams / Strom duo is in no uncertain terms rejected by every member and therefore the Sacramento chapter will remain in hiatus, continuing to support the efforts of NARRG until a successful conclusion of the lawsuit is reached. In the meantime, members continue to meet in continued friendship on an irregular basis and keep in touch.
Only then will the chapter reorganize and begin its necessary work again. Chapter members feel that they cannot in good conscious work for any management that will alienate responsible racially conscious people or be associated with people that will subject us to public ridicule and scorn.
Incensed on the one hand by statements that the succession management intends to turn the organization into some kind of restricted religious group, and on the other hand by being placed in a position of having to defend one of those leaders’ admission, conviction, registration and supervised probation to odious sex offense crimes is absolutely intolerable.
This is not what members consider proper leadership and thus will not buy into to Gliebe’s scorched earth successors.
