FTR #90 A Review and Analysis of Serpent’s Walk

Listen now: One Segment [1]

This segment analyzes Serpent’s Walk, a Nazi tract published in 1991 and authored by one “Randolph O. Calverhall.” Published by National Vanguard Books, which also published The Turner Diaries, the book is purportedly a “novel” about a Nazi takeover of the United States in the middle of the twenty-first century. It is Mr. Emory’s considered opinion that the book is far more than a novel – he feels that it is a blueprint for what is already going on and what is planned for the future. Mr. Emory feels that the book is extremely important and that it should be studied. The events portrayed in it have a foundation in reality. In Serpent’s Walk, Hitler’s SS goes underground after World War II.

The SS then begin building a huge capital organization and buying into U.S. industry, the opinion-forming media in particular. (Just such an organization was put together! See Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile [2] by Paul Manning. The book was published in 1981 by Lyle Stuart Inc.) The SS then infiltrate the United States Army and the U.S. government in general. At the end of the war, much of the Nazi intelligence system was married to the American espionage establishment, permitting just such infiltration.

After the President and Vice-President are killed in a biological warfare attack that utilizes genetically-engineered viruses (of ostensibly Russian origin), the Speaker of the House (“Jonas Outram”) becomes President, declares martial law and invites the Nazis into a governing coalition, which then takes over the United States. It is Mr. Emory’s opinion that the Jonas Outram character is based on Newt Gingrich and that Gingrich was recruited to the Nazi philosophy in Germany while his father was stationed there with the Army.
