New Zealand Bigots Abort European Students AssociationKerry Bolton
“Abort” is not too strong a word, as the planned Auckland University European Students Association was seemingly obliterated before it got going, unless it has plans to exist in another form or dimension. The association obtained permission to man a display for recruitment during Orientation week in March at Auckland University. Having just seen the association’s Facebook page, which seems to now have been deleted, at least temporarily, the association described its purpose as including Medieval re-enactments, feasts, and hiking. I can quite understand why something as potentially fascistic and militaristic as hiking could evoke the paranoia of the Left. After all, the Wandervogel groups in Weimar Germany were a prelude to the Hitler Youth. One should not encourage healthy pastimes among European youngsters; who knows where it might lead? Auschwitz here we come . . . The liberal thought-police might also want to investigate the popularity of Medieval re-enactments in New Zealand, which is intrinsically Eurocentric and therefore implicitly genocidal.
Another matter of grave concern was that the Facebook of the European Students Association included Celtic Knots. The Celtic Knot, state the thought-police, is used by “white nationalist” groups. Our Race Relations commissioner, Dame Susan Devoy, whose qualifications for that job consist of her acumen as a squash champion, stated that although she is proud of her Irish heritage, she will be keeping a close watch on the European Students Association. What makes an Irish or a Celtic dance society acceptable, but not a more generalized “European” society that includes Celtic plus other European heritages?
In order to become acceptable the association would presumably have had to form separate but affiliated ethnic groups for each European ethnicity, with say one member forming an Irish branch, another the Slavic branch, one the Italian, branch, another the Swedish branch, then forming an umbrella group but without the name “European.” Presumably “White” or “Aryan” would also be unacceptable so one is left wondering exactly what name would be acceptable. The conclusion must be that none would be acceptable. Anything of a “European” character is going to be innately objectionable.
The motto of the association, “Strength through honour,” was going to be problematic. There were allusions to the SS. However, any motto that included the word “honor” was going to be objectionable. The word implies chivalry, knights, warriors: Europe. How can the word “honor” be looked at as anything other than objectionable by those who intrinsically lack honor, do not understand honor in others, do not have it in themselves, do not and cannot identify with any heritage that is based on honor? The word “honor” used in any context was going to be associated with the SS by these types. So one must not promote honor as a European value.
Another objection was the inclusion of Captain James Cook on the association’s Facebook page. Cook was the first Englishman to discover New Zealand. The Dutch had come before him, but did not think sufficient of the place to bother further. The Maoris invited the British to incorporate Maoriland into the British Empire in the hope that British order and law would compel them to stop slaughtering each other, but the legacy is something that cannot be other than one of shame and guilt according to the Left. Captain Cook is a proto-Nazi and a white supremacist, and what is more part of white male patriarchal society. The association might just as well had Hitler or Nathan Bedford Forrest adorning their Facebook page.
So the number of breaches offending liberal sensibilities on one brief Facebook page were substantial: “European,” “honor,” the Celtic Knot, Captain Cook.
The founder of the association has backed down. He had been threatened with violence. That is the usual response of the Leftist intelligentsia, when it can muster sufficient numbers to overcome its intrinsic cowardice — lack of honor — against the forces of fascist “intolerance.”
Auckland University Students Association president Will Matthews was of course vocal in his opposition to the registration of the association as a university club and its presence at Orientation week. Watching Mr Mathews on the TV One news link provided below one might discern a certain, predictable, type. Mr. Matthews is a blogger for a two-man project of Left-wing banality they call The Left Estate so he had a political bias that he was incapable of putting aside in the interests of objectivity . . . and doing what is honorable. Mr. Matthews is a member of the Auckland University Labour Party. That is defined as a “social democratic” organization; “social democratic” as in the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party, which became the Bolshevik party, which resulted in Kronstadt, the Ukrainian famine, Mao’s Cultural Revolution, Pol Pot’s “killing fields” . . . The Labour Party uses “red” like Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot. One might object to their use of the word “social democracy,” and to the color red because of their historic associations. Perhaps the existence of the Labour Party on Auckland campus should be scrutinized, considering the legacy of its “social democracy”? Who knows where their socialism might lead?
Amongst groups on Auckland campus is the Australasian Union of Jewish Students. The objectives are described as: “Australasian Union of Jewish Students on Auckland campus, we are a cultural, political and religious club, advocating Israel and Judaism on campus.” How inclusive is this outfit? The European Students Association was strictly cultural but non-religious and non-political. Are Susan Devoy and Will Matthews and the sundry bigots who objected to a European culture group able to seriously argue that this Jewish outfit is more inclusive than the European Students Association, or are they being gutless, hypocritical, or both? The Jewish students union mission is to “develop and strengthen Jewish identity on campus . . . enhancing Jewish life.” They are committed to the program of the World Zionist Organization, to promoting “Jewish history and culture,” and serving as a platform for “every Jewish and Zionist student across Australia and New Zealand.” Why is it acceptable for an association to call itself “Jewish,” but unacceptable for one to be called “European”? Why is Zionism acceptable with all the suffering that has caused, yet a non-political, non-religious, culture organisation is not?
The European Students Association was presented by Mr Matthews and his ilk as a potential threat to ethnic minorities, but there is not the slightest reason to believe that would have been the case. What was expected? Cross lightings? Beatings with a sjambok? Lynchings? Pogroms? What . . . ? The only threats of violence and expressions of bigotry were those directed against the association.

The Burial of the Blarney Stone: Ireland’s New Hate Speech Legislation
This is not going to last. Inevitably, Europeans will organise, both within and outside of Europe.
But that is largely driven by the fact that we’re forced to organise, as we become a smaller and smaller share of the population and can’t automatically assume that our interests will be taken care of. Naturally, our governments haven’t had our interests at heart since the postwar era, so the fallacy of a white government = white interests, needs to be eradicated.
This also goes to a deeper criticism of white nationalism. It only seems to thrive when we’re under attack/threat. But if we want to be truly sustainable in the long run, we need to become a culture and a civilisation that nurtures our past and future even in time of tranquility and peace.
We’re not even close to that, since we can barely organise ourselves even under duress.
Its a threat to ethnic minorities because it implies that they won’t be allowed to take over, or do what they want.
In the anti-White societies of the West, every minority is expected to become a majority and White be made irrelevant– so anyone who objects to that, even implicitly, is seen as a threat.
In others words, what do they want you to do: DIE.
Any European-American who has been reading and observing what is going on in Western Nations and one who does not believe yet that there is an attempt to take away the rights of European-Americans, even to slowly genocide them, is someone who is so dense to not even be bothered about.
The need for more Eurocentric groups on campus, in the media, in government and throughout popular culture is of the utmost importance. We need a deluge of them if our identity is to be taken seriously. Nothing short of a complete popular blitz will do.

Isn’t that interesting? The same holds for the American school and university system. And what does that tell you? It tells me that organizing on an ethnic basis – individual atomized European ethnic groups – is NOT considered a threat by the system. Organizing on a pan-European, racial basis, with an emphasis on a “European” character, is deemed a threat and considered unacceptable. I think there’s a lesson there if you think about it.
A side note: does Mr. Bolton have any updates on his Yockey biography?
Thanks for your comments, with which I of course agree.
There is no indication when the Yockey bio. can be published.
They should copy word for word, the ideals and constitution of the Jewish Student’s Group replacing the word European for Jewish and publicise the fact. Let the left choke on their own bigotry.
Should read replacing the word Jewish for European, but I’m sure you got the drift.
The problem with these unapproved student organizations –anything even mildly approaching an implicit European consciousness- is that they want money from the university. Can’t they still exist off-campus and self-fund?
One is either pro-White or pro-White Genocide.
What an awesome article Kerry. Thank you. Its a pity that yet another group of free thinking rightists have been shamed into hiding away. Even in the current climate of a growing indulgence in pro European culture the left can still scare some into bowing out. All the left have is words and guilt tripping. If you just stand up and ignore them, they have nothing. God Bless those who have been harmed by this and I hope and prey they find the courage to get passed the words of the left and continue with a genuine and committed resolve to be counted for something instead of forgotten for nearly something.
Here we have the Maori local news regarding the matter:
They call it a ‘White pride’ group implying that is a bad thing I guess. They also imply that the group uploaded a Nazi propaganda image which I am sure they didn’t while also showing a painting called, ‘Proclamation of the German Empire at Versailles’ which the group likely did upload. They misquote the group’s motto which is “Strength through Loyalty” by showing an image on screen of the words, “My Honour is Called Loyalty”.
It is quite a good example of typical deceptive “journalism”.
You would think the Maori would be a bit more understanding, but no, they are seeking answers as to why such a travesty could occur in the first place.
“The founder of the association has backed down. He had been threatened with violence.”
It seems that cowardice is not just an intrinsic problem of the left.
Maybe he really didn’t know better, couldn’t predict the inescapable outcry, and was therefore simply overwhelmed by the(ir) or rather (((their))) typical ugliness, but if someone chooses a motto like “Strength through honour” one might tend to expect something… entirely different.
While i don’t know the circumstances of the people involved, I must agree with your general sentiments.
Would Susan approve of a Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi club?
Maybe we should start one, and appoint her as honorary Matron. They’d get together and celebrate diversity full bore.
As a New Zealander I recenrly wrote to the Auckland Uni Student’s Association about their handling of this matter, and addressed issues all to common in many Western Universities across the globe. Mainly, the vilification of White Westerners seen as the perpetrators of all the world’s ills, due to a strong bias in academic course content that expressly persecutes the West based on historical acts of colonialism and Slavery, which the liberal left exclusivly lay at the feet of white Westerners. who oddly seem to be eternally having to apologize on behalf of the dead, There is of course no one alive in the world today who is responsible for past acts of trans Atlantic slavery and historical acts of colonisation, yet we are never allowed toi forget it! So, I pointed out the following from – ‘Why The West is Best’ by Ibn Warraq, a Muslim apostate who writes in defence of our Western Liberal democracy:
“…It is unfair for the West alone to bear the brunt of past injustices of the slave trade and colonialism. This is especially so since it was the West that first took steps to abolish slavery; that took legal measures to end institutionalised racism; and that voluntarily withdrew from its colonial possessions and abandoned any imperial ambitions. Issues of slavery and imperialism are far from being exclusively Western inventions. Racism for example flourishes openly in some places outside of the West today, Islamic Anti-Semitism is well documented, and even slavery is still practiced. Arabs were engaged in in the slave trade many years before the Atlantic model of slavery was established, the Europeans based their model on the pre-existing Arab model, Arabs were engaged in the slave trade for 13 centuries and shipped far more black slaves across the Sahara and the Red Sea than were sent across the Atlantic. The Quran accepts the existence of slavery and regulates its practice.
A tenth century Persian treatise on world geography described black Africans as “People distant from the standards of humanity.” Senegalese anthropologist and historian Tidiane N’Diaye, wrote a passionate account of the role that Muslim Arabs played in the black African slave trade, “Muslim Arabs captured, enslaved, and castrated millions of black Africans, resulting in death for hundreds of thousands, his account titled ‘the Veiled Genocide’ is a courageous book, bluntly stating the facts no matter how politically incorrect. N’Diaye lays to rest many myths of slavery, documenting that both Muslim Arabs and black Africans had been enslaving other humans for centuries before the white man arrived in Africa. In a forthright fashion that would be virtually unthinkable for a Western historian.
Abolition was considered a foreign idea by Muslims , slavery was accepted by custom, perpetuated by tradition and sanctioned by religion. As Ehud R. Toledo put it Abolitionism was considered a foreign idea, barely understood and vigorously resisted. No anti-slavery movement ever emerged from Ottoman society. John Azumah, a Ghanaian with a doctorate in “Islam and Slavery” from the University of Birmingham stated “Muslims resisted all abolition efforts and chattel slavery persists in Muslim countries today”. A United Nations report back in 1995 highlighted “the abduction and traffic of young girls and boys from Southern Sudan to the Northern part of the country for sale as servants and concubines was alive and well. Slaves can still be found in northern Nigeria and Mauritania, and there is evidence to suggest that it still exists in Saudi Arabia too. The death of slavery, in short, has been a protracted one and is still not over…”
I included that excerpt to hopefully inject a different historical understanding so the AUSA might realize the academic status quo, that so self rightously infiltrates student’s education, is wrong to blame the West exclusively. this sort of educational bias creates the very climate of Westrern post colonial guilt and predjudice against ‘things European’ that so obviously compelled AUSA members to vilify and persecute the European Student’s Association, before it ever got off the ground.
Thanks Kerry for giving this international publicity. It is encouraging that the idea of a European Association has surfaced on campus and that yr article has received comments from other New Zealanders. I often thought you and I were the only readers of Counter-Currents. European New Zealanders are woefully backward when it comes to racial consciousness.This would indicate that the impact of multiculturalism is beginning to bite even here. Intellectually, Devoy is such a pathetic non-entity that she can only help catalyse this shift and that’s unexpectedly good news for us all.
Thanks for bringing this up Kerry, I hadn’t even heard about it, as a New Zealander traveling Europe, I can confirm this is happening around the globe. A student group in the UK was banned a while ago under similar circumstances.
We should definitely be organizing on campuses, just not openly. I’m sure if the founder was made aware of this article Kerry you’d be able to convince him to re-organize in secret.
