Transcript of a radio broadcast on Adolf Hitler by Matt Koehl on April 16, 1972.
Eighty-three years ago this month, a child was born in the small Austrian town of Braunau on the River Inn. With His arrival on this Earth, there began a new era in human history. For He was more than just another man. Into a world which had lost its sense of direction, He came to show the Way.
Into a world of decadence and false values, He came to proclaim great eternal truths.
Into a world grown cynical and materialistic, He came to bring a new birth of radiant idealism.
Into a world standing at the abyss, He came to offer hope and salvation for an entire race.

The son of simple folk, this unique individual rose against every conceivable odd and adversity to become the leader of His people.
Winston Churchill once described Him in this manner:
While all these formidable transformations were occurring in Europe, He was fighting His long, wearying battle for the human heart. The story of that struggle cannot be read without admiration for the courage, the perseverance, and the vital force which enabled Him to challenge, defy or overcome all the authorities or resistances which barred His path. He, and the ever-increasing legions who worked with Him, certainly showed at this time, in their patriotic ardor and love of country, that there was nothing they would not do or dare.
At another time, Churchill said of this remarkable man:
If our country were defeated, I hope we should find a champion as indomitable to restore our courage and lead us back to our place among the nations.
Yet, to think of this man as merely a patriot in the conventional sense would be wrong. For He was infinitely more. He was sent into this world with a message not only for His own countrymen, but for people in every Western nation.
Unfortunately, His message was rejected. Through a frenzied campaign of hate and lies, those alien interests which dominate our Western world succeeded in turning their peoples against this man and His message.
Never in the past 2,000 years has there been a man more hated, more reviled, more slandered, more abused, more befouled than this man. Like the early Christians, His followers have been persecuted, ostracized, hunted down, cruelly tortured, and put to death.
The man I speak of is — Adolf Hitler.
* * *
We went to war against this man. We allowed ourselves to be deceived by all the lies His enemies told about Him.
And not only did we lose nearly a half million men as a result of this sinful folly, but in our blind hatred of Adolf Hitler we managed to make the world safe for Communism—turning half of Europe and Asia over to the bloody Red butchers in the process.
Today, a generation later—in the God-forsaken jungles of Southeast Asia—we are still paying the terrible price for having waged war against Adolf Hitler and our Aryan brothers in Europe. All of our present misfortunes and unhappiness as a nation can, in fact, be traced directly or indirectly to our attempt to destroy this man and the wonderful, new Idea which He proclaimed.
The decay of moral and spiritual values, the breakup of family life, epidemic drug addiction, skyrocketing crime, social unrest, economic instability, racial disorder—all these serious national problems which we witness today are an outgrowth of our having participated in a war against Adolf Hitler.
A lot of people wonder why such things as busing and integration are being foisted on them today. Little do they realize that the forces behind this latest genocidal insanity are the very same forces which got us into the Second World War. For Adolf Hitler’s enemies are the very same ones we must now face—in our neighborhoods, in our schools, on our jobs, in our society and government.
If, instead of having made war on Adolf Hitler, we had followed His teachings and His example, America would never have known a Korean or Vietnam war. Our country would not now be faced with an explosive racial problem. We would not be confronted by social and cultural disintegration. We would not be suffering from moral and spiritual decay.
But the fact is, we did go to war. And because of this, we are today paying the price for our waywardness. And we must be prepared to accept fully the consequences of that unholy deed—until such time as we are ready to redeem ourselves by grasping the great, race-saving hand of the very man we sought to destroy.
Until such time as we accept the immortal teachings of Adolf Hitler, we are damned as a nation. Until we can summon up the moral courage to recognize that He was right and we were wrong, there is no hope for us.
For there is an iron law of cause and effect, of eternal equity, which does not permit the transgression of Nature’s laws to go unpunished.

In His great book, Adolf Hitler has written:
The ultimate wisdom is always the understanding of the instinct—that is: a man must never fall into the lunacy of believing that he has really risen to be lord and master of Nature—which is so easily induced by the conceit of half-education; he must understand the fundamental necessity of Nature’s rule, and realize how much his existence is subject to these laws. Then he will feel that in a universe where planets revolve around suns, and moons turn around planets, there can be no special laws for man. For him, too, the eternal principles of this ultimate wisdom hold sway. He can try to comprehend them, but escape them, never.
Thus we see that National Socialism, the doctrine which Adolf Hitler gave to the world, is based first of all on a profound respect and reverence for the laws of Nature, recognizing that man himself is an integral part of the natural order and subject to the same laws.
One National Socialist writer, Savitri Dêvi, has stated:
In its essence, the National Socialist idea exceeds not only Germany and our time, but the Aryan race and mankind itself and any epoch; it ultimately expresses that mysterious and unfailing wisdom according to which Nature lives and creates, the impersonal wisdom of the primeval forest and of the ocean depth and of the spheres in the dark fields of space; and it is Adolf Hitler's glory not merely to have gone back to that divine wisdom, but to have made it the practical regeneration policy of world-wide scope.
In consequence, National Socialism rejects the materialism of both Communism and Capitalism. It declares that the quality of our human resources is more important than the quantity of our money and gadgets.
We believe that an honest man can never be happy in a naked scramble for material gain and comfort, without becoming part of something greater than himself and for which he is willing to sacrifice his own personal interests and life, if need be. That greater something—namely one's racial community—provides the natural context within which the life of the individual is able to assume real meaning and purpose on this Earth.
This concept we call racial idealism, and it stands at the center of the National Socialist doctrine.
Today, when ill-disguised attempts at genocide are being directed against the white population of America under the euphemistic label of "integration," the message of Adolf Hitler assumes new relevance. Recognizing the sanctity of racial values, He has plainly stated:
Blood sin and desecration of the race are the original sin in this world and the end of a humanity which surrenders to it…
There is only one holiest human right, and this right is at the same time the holiest obligation, to wit: to see to it that the blood is preserved pure and, by preserving the best humanity, to create the possibility of a nobler development of these beings…
In the National Socialist state, the racial philosophy of life must succeed in bringing about that nobler age in which men no longer are concerned with breeding dogs, horses, and cats, but in elevating man himself.
Then, addressing Himself to elements of the Old Order, Adolf Hitler goes on to say:
Of course, the miserable army of our present-day shopkeepers will never understand this. They will laugh at it or shrug their crooked shoulders and moan forth their eternal excuse: 'That would be very nice in itself, but it can't be done!' True, it can no longer be done with you; your world isn't fit for it! You know but one concern: your personal life, and one god: your money! But we are not addressing ourselves to you, but to the great army of those who are so poor that their personal life cannot mean the highest happiness in the world—to those who do not see the ruling principle of their existence in gold, but in other gods…
It may be that today gold has become the exclusive ruler of life, but the time will come when man will again bow down before a higher god.
Adolf Hitler knew that His doctrine would be met with scorn and ridicule, and He admonished His followers with these words:
We National Socialists know that with this conception we stand as revolutionaries in the world today and are also branded as such. But our thoughts and actions must in no way be determined by the approval or disapproval of our time, but by the binding obligation to a truth which we have recognized.
Many of our white brothers and sisters have been led to believe that Adolf Hitler was some kind of monster with a pathological lust for war and bloodshed. In His book, which is called My Struggle—Mein Kampf—He reveals His true feelings about His racial kinsmen:
And again, the National Socialist movement has the mightiest task to fulfill: it must open the eyes of the people concerning foreign nations, and must remind them again and again of the true enemy of our present-day world. In place of hatred against Aryans—from whom almost everything may separate us, but with whom we are nevertheless bound by common blood or the great line of a kindred culture—it must call universal wrath upon the foul enemy of mankind as the real originator of our suffering.
It must make certain that in our country, at least, the mortal enemy is recognized and that the struggle against him becomes a gleaming symbol of a brighter time, to show other nations the way to the salvation of an embattled Aryan mankind.

Today, many people think that Hitler is dead and gone — that He was a failure. Well, a lot of people felt the same way about another great figure after His crucifixion 2,000 years ago.
No, Adolf Hitler was not a failure. For He has changed the course of history for all time to come.
With His mighty doctrine, He has given us the means for the salvation of our race. Through His superhuman effort, He has provided us with the heroic inspiration needed in this crucial hour of Aryan mankind.
Adolf Hitler fought and died so that Aryan man might live. By paying the supreme sacrifice, by shedding His life's blood, He has assured our race of a glorious future.
But it is up to us to grasp His race-saving message. We must show ourselves worthy of that future by recognizing the immortal man of Braunau.
In His great book, Adolf Hitler has declared:
When human hearts break and human souls despair, then from the twilight of the past the great conquerors of distress and care, of shame and misery, of spiritual slavery and physical compulsion, look down upon them and hold out their eternal hands to despairing mortals. Woe to the people that is ashamed to grasp them!
Today the mighty hand of Adolf Hitler is held out to every white man who loves his race and wants to see a great New Order on this Earth.

Many people argue that Hitler is dead. But is He really? No one knew His fate better than the Leader Himself. In 1945, amid the flaming ruins of Berlin, He uttered these prophetic words:
It is necessary that I should die for my people. But my spirit will rise from the grave, and the world will know that I was right.
No, Adolf Hitler is not dead. For His immortal spirit transcends the barriers of time and space.
The reason I follow Adolf Hitler, the reason every National Socialist follows Adolf Hitler, is not because He lived, but because He lives.
And when His detractors say that He is dead and gone, then we can reply with the calm assurance of that imprisoned comrade who declared his faith very simply:
"HITLER," he said, "IS THE FUTURE!"
Commentary by Martin Kerr: It may come as a surprise to some people, but for a brief moment in 1972, the National Socialist White People’s Party had a program of political commentary on broadcast radio.
The AM show was entitled “The Future Calls,” and could be heard weekly on public radio in St. Louis on KDNA and in Northern California on KTAO. Additionally, individual episodes were broadcast in Los Angeles and elsewhere. The show began with the strains of an instrumental rendition of the Horst Wessel Song, after which Party Commander Matt Koehl delivered a 15-minute address on a given topic. Then, time allowing, a brief “commercial” for the NSWPP concluded the show, giving the party’s contact address and encouraging listeners to support it. Predictably, those forces whom historian David Irving calls “the traditional enemies of free speech” were outraged by the program. They immediately began to pressure the participating stations to cancel it, which, after a dozen episodes or so had been aired, they did.
The initial broadcast was given the same title as the show itself and was first heard on the air on April 16, 1972. In 1976, the European branch of the World Union of National Socialists issued a text of the inaugural broadcast in booklet form. Translations were subsequently published in Danish, French, German and Spanish.
In his address, the Commander reaffirms the centrality of Adolf Hitler to the National Socialist movement. He further asserts that although Hitler’s body perished in 1945, his spirit lives on in the hearts of and minds of National Socialists everywhere. He concludes with the ringing affirmation that “Hitler is the future!”
