The American Third Position Party, which promotes white nationalism, nominated a presidential ticket this past week. Independent film director Merlin Miller was selected as the presidential nominee, and professor Virginia Abernethy was chosen as his running mate.
Miller posted the following statement on the announcement:
America, the greatest nation ever conceived, is now on the precipice and needs her patriots to come to the rescue. She has been betrayed by career politicians and a two party system that no longer serves the interests of the American people, but instead serves global special interests. America has also been betrayed by a mainstream media that no longer respects truth or righteousness, but instead promotes our social and moral decline. The global forces behind these betrayals are intent on destroying America, and sacrificing all that our forefathers built and that we hold dear – to establish, instead, a socialist new world order in which they will surreptitiously rule an unsuspecting, yet increasingly enslaved mass – “1984” revisited. The evidence is clear to those who seek out truths, historic and current.
These global elites have debauched our currency, involved us in unjust and undeclared wars, opened our borders to massive third world immigration, destroyed our production capabilities through government overregulation and imbalanced trade agreements, and subverted our rights and constitutional protections. Government and the military-industrial-banking-pharmaceutical complex are the only growth industries, and as the American middle class is being systematically wiped out, a police state is evolving. In less than fifty years, America’s national character has been dramatically altered. The overwhelming white, Christian majority
(90% in the early 1960’s) is now 65% and predicted to be a minority within the next thirty years. To question this radical demographic assault against traditional America, or divisive and unfair “affirmative action” programs – is to be classified a “racist”. To question Israel’s excessive influence over America’s foreign policy or the Jewish dominance in media – is to be classified “anti-Semitic”. Our Republic has been turned upside down, and “cultural Marxism” and “political correctness” has silenced too many patriots for far too long. What can we do about it?
A new political party, the American Third Position (A3P), is stepping forward with honest and rational answers. During Ron Paul’s 2008 campaign events, and patriot meetings since, I was privileged to get to know several of the A3P’s future party leaders and came to respect their courage and vision. I share their most noble ideals and have been asked to head the party’s ticket for the 2012 Presidential campaign. I am honored and will do everything in my power to reach the American people and help restore America’s former greatness as a Republic. America has traditionally been the beacon for the rest of the world, not a ruthless interventionist in the affairs of other nations – and it is time we restored our traditions and America’s reputation. The world should emulate us, not fear and despise us.
As an Iowa native, West Point graduate, Army veteran, engineering manager, and award winning filmmaker, I was never interested in politics, but now am compelled to answer the call and serve my nation in its time of greatest need. I’ve been married to my wife for 37 years and we have four wonderful daughters, three of whom also graduated from West Point. We owe our progeny a future and can no longer rely on a system that has been corrupted to its core. Enter the fight with us – to take back our country!
The party was founded in 2010 as a response to the policies of President Barack Obama. Recently, Harry Bertram ran for governor of West Virginia as a member of the party during the 2011 special election, and received 0.35% of the vote.
According to Miller campaign manager Alex Carmichael, “we currently plan to be on the ballots of several states and should have our plans posted soon.”
