David Eden Lane (November 2, 1938May 28, 2007) was a founding member of the Silent Brotherhood. He died while serving a 190-year prison sentence in the Federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.[1]

Lane coined the credo: We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children, also known as the Fourteen words.



Living in several places throughout his childhood, Lane's family settled in Aurora, Colorado where he attended Hinckley High School.[2] Originally aspiring to become a golf professional,[3] Lane worked as real estate broker until his license was revoked because, "I wouldn't sell homes to coloreds in white neighborhoods."[4]

Lane was a member of the John Birch Society before joining the Ku Klux Klan, becoming the organizer of the Denver unit of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in 1979. In late 1981, Lane became Colorado State Organizer of Aryan Nations. [5]

Lane met Robert Jay Mathews in July 1983 at the Aryan Nations world congress. [6] On 22 September 1983, Lane was among the nine founding members of the Silent Brotherhood. Group members have been accused and convicted of various crimes.


Lane was sentenced to a 190-year consecutive life sentence for racketeering (20 years), conspiracy (20 years) and "violation of the civil rights" of radio talk show host Alan Berg who had been murdered in 1984 (150 years).[7]

The district attorney declined to prosecute on murder charges regarding Alan Berg, saying the evidence wouldn’t stand up in court.[8]

David Lane in his writings apparently did not deny certain of the crimes the Silent Brotherhood were accused of, but did reject involvement in the killing of Alan Berg, who may have had many enemies due to his controversial radio talk show and stated involvement in various crimes. The witnesses testifying for the prosecution were argued to have falsely done so in exchange for immunity and other rewards. During the judicial process, judges, prosecutors, and even appointed defense attorneys were stated to include several Jews, possibly creating conflicts of interest.[9]

Lane was also among 14 men prosecuted for sedition at the Fort Smith Sedition Trial, but was acquitted.

Lane was considered extremely dangerous by the American justice system and was incarcerated at various times after his conviction in the United States Penitentiary, Marion, the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility in Florence, Colorado and the Federal Correctional Complex, Terre Haute.

While incarcerated, Lane wrote articles for certain White nationalist periodicals and websites. With his wife and Ron McVan, he ran a publishing company called 14 Word Press in Idaho to disseminate his writings.

David Lane died on May 28, 2007 in the Federal Correctional Complex, Terre Haute due to an epileptic seizure.[10]


White racial preservation

Lane believed that the survival of the White Race is of paramount importance. He also believed that Christianity is problematic to the White race because it is a product of non-White Jews and is anti-Nature. Similarly, he believed that completely white nations are necessary to eliminate miscegenation which he believed is a threat. He considered White people who supported what he viewed as the Zionist conspiracy to be race traitors.[11]

Lane coined the 14 words: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children." He also authored the 88 Precepts.
