John de Nugent – Germanic warrior for "race and nation", who at one time seeked an alliance with "realistic blacks against the huge common threat of Jews, Chinese and Mexicans.".[1]

John de Nugent (ᛉ 14 July 1954 in Providence, Rhode Island) is a White nationalist, writer and political activist.


Descended via both parents from Thomas Angell, one of the co-founders in 1636 of the colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (now called "State of Rhode Island"), de Nugent grew up in his ancestral Providence, Rhode Island area. His distant ancestors were from Normandy, France.

In the wake of his parents' divorce when he was 15 in 1970, which gave custody to his mother Constance, he was induced to join the religious group "Jehovah's Witnesses," and from 1970-76 was a member, serving even at their world headquarters in Brooklyn Heights, New York.

Thoroughly disillusioned -- especially after the sect's broken promise of the "end of the world" in 1975 -- de Nugent broke away at age 21 in 1976.


The germanophil de Nugent was married to Gertrud Atzl of Brandenberg, Austria from 1975-1990, having two daughters (Ingrid and Erika). A second marriage, 2002-2005, to a French citizen was annulled in 2006.

In 1976, de Nugent volunteered to join the United States Marine Corps Reserve, and after basic training at Parris Island, South Carolina he served in a Marine Reserve unit, the 35th Interrogator-Translator Team at the Washington Navy Yard (and later at the nearby Anacostia Naval Air Base), led by the Jewish captain Harvey Philip Gold. He received three meritorious promotions within approximately one year, but after his white nationist politics became known, he was nearly murdered by Dutch Marines (as confirmed by an article by the Jewish captain), and was transfered in the fall of 1979 to an all-black supply unit.

He then requested an inter-service transfer to an infantry unit of the Virginia Army National Guard, where he was named "Guardsperson of the Year" for 1980 by his commanding officer, Captain John Holt. He left the Active Reserves in 1981.

In this same year de Nugent also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., with a 3.702 average, earning the designation magna cum laude ("with high honors"). He was also admitted to the national honor society known as Phi Beta Kappa. He had majored in German and minored in French.

"White nationism"

John de Nugent's career in white nationism began in 1978. He was assigned as part of his major in German at Georgetown to read some passages from Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf dealing with Hitler's views of the Jewish question. Perceiving parallels to the situation in the United States of the 1970s, de Nugent visited the Arlington, Va. headquarters of the National Socialist White People's Party, founded in 1967 by former US Navy commander George Lincoln Rockwell (another quasi-Rhode Islander) but headed after Rockwell's 1967 assassination by Matt Koehl, a former Marine who now directs the Wisconsin-based "The New Order."

After some activism with the NSWPP, de Nugent met Dr. William L. Pierce in 1981, a former physicist and chairman of the National Alliance. He wrote several articles on recruiting new members for the National Alliance, spoke at the 1983 NA convention in Chicago, moderated the 1984 NA convention, and built a rapidly growing "Washington-Baltimore Unit" of the NA. He left the NA on good terms in 1984, viewing it as lacking a true religious base and an adequate number of women members.

In 1985 de Nugent worked with former West Point graduate and lawyer Gary Gallo of Maryland to raise funds for the legal defense of Bernard Goetz, the white New York subway crime victim who shot several young blacks.

In 1986 he worked with Hans Schmidt, a former member of the Waffen-SS division "Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler," on a project for German heritage in Washington.

From 1987-1992 de Nugent was an independent contractor who promoted the use of revocable trusts by those who wished to leave a bequest to Liberty Lobby, a Capitol Hill-based "populist" organization founded and run by Willis Carto.

Around July 1989 de Nugent moved to Metairie, Louisiana to study the electoral victory of pro-white State Representative David Duke, staying in Louisiana until the late spring of 1990.


In June-August 1990, de Nugent, using the campaign name "Jack Nugent," ran in the Republican primary for Congress in the Sixth District of Tennessee, south and east of Nashville, on a pro-white platform. He achieved 26.7 percent of the vote, although de Nugent suspects that massive elecronic vote fraud denied him an outright victory on primary day, August 10, 1990. He received extensive local publicity and references to his race were made by Time Magazine and the op-ed page of the New York Times.

From 1992-2004 de Nugent wrote occasional articles on pro-white or anti-Zionist topics for various publications, including the magazine "The Barnes Review". Three of the most noteworthy were on 1) Adolf Hitler's "Madagascar Plan" to resettle European Jewry on that huge French colonial island; 2) Kennewick Man; and 3) "The Great Patents Heist," the Allied seizure of thousands of vital German patents after 1945.

In April 1993, he led a large demonstration against the Jewish “Holocaust” fraud at the inauguration of the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, causing both President Bill Clinton and fraudulent Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel to complain about it during their speeches, claiming that his demonstration proved that Americans needed the Holocaust Museum and yet more white-guilt-trip “education.”

On April 20, 2005 de Nugent returned from the south of France to Washington, D.C. to become a major writer for The Barnes Review, and for a while was its associate editor. He also translated many articles from German and French, including his work on the translation of the memoirs of General Léon Degrelle of the Waffen-SS (28th SS Volunteer Grenadier Division Wallonien).

European tour

In the summer of 2006 he spoke in Barcelona, Spain, in the Spanish language, on the topic of psychopaths in politics and among the Jewish population. His audience was white nationist publisher and political dissident Pedro Varela and his followers.

In March 2007 de Nugent, who speaks German fluently, spoke in Germany to gatherings of the prominent German activists including Günter Deckert, Manfred Roeder and Andreas J. Voigt. He alsot with Vincent Reynouard, the French revisionist living in Belgian political exile, and conferred with David Duke, who had become a prominent pro-white writer. In April 2007, he spoke in East Lansing, Michigan to a gathering organized by young activist Evan Thomas.

Domestic activities

In 2007 he began posting on a discussion "thread" called "Apocalypse of the Psychopaths" on an originally libertarian forum called "" The thread grew by May 2008 to 54,000 views. In early 2008 he began posting also actively on several other pro-white forms such as, and eNationalist Forums.

In October 2007 de Nugent was a major speaker at the anti-Zionist conference "No More Wars for Israel" in Irvine, California, and helped secure new venues after several hotels refused to host it.

In February 2008 de Nugent moved to greater Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, an area he considered ideal for pursuing further pro-white activities. There he began preparing a possible re-entry into political life. He was joined there by other white activists, and through his writings and videos online began to become known worldwide in the pro-white community.

In 2013 de Nugent is candidating for a County Sheriffs Office in Pennsylvania.
