ADT on Perceived Support

It was vitally necessary to the whole thrust of the revolution that we not only gain support among white Northwesters in fact and in practice, but that this support should be perceived. The public fa├žade of consent of the governed had to be brought crashing down and the world made to understand that we were not just a gang of terrorists but a legitimate armed forced for a new nation demanding freedom. This meant that any public criticism against the NVA or the revolution, any public support of the old order, could not be allowed. Our claim to represent the white people of the Homeland must be clear and unchallenged, because eventually we were going to have to sit down at the conference table with the occupying power and our demand for our people’s Homeland had to have that legitimacy behind it.
