Whenever you launch a new political venture, symbolism is crucial to be able to introduce the public to your party, your principles and your ideals. Symbols have the power to move individuals and entire nations to the drumbeat of history. Symbols work in all realms of the human experience, but especially in politics and religion.
To Christians, the symbol of the Cross has the power to inspire, to bring tears to our eyes when we remember the sacrifice of our Savior, and to fortify us with courage to be willing to give our own lives in martyrdom for our Christian faith. The Mjolnir to folk religionists is a symbol that reminds those who wear it of our European ancestors and the roots from which we spring.
Soldiers in battle will give their lives to hold onto the flag of their unit, a piece of cloth with a design holds more value than even the lives of the fighting men because the symbol represents to all of the soldiers their units storied legacy and the heroism of themselves and soldiers to come who fight under the same banner.
Whether on the Left or Right, political movements have symbols that become a crucial part of the identity of those who are active participants. The symbol of a Party or a political ideology can be as small as a lapel pin on a man’s jacket to show his allegiance to his ideology, all the way up to the erection of magnificent monuments that take the work of thousands of dedicated workers and visionaries.
Symbols that are either big or small have the ability to motivate people to a calling greater than their themselves.
In creating the logo of the Traditionalist Worker Party, there was the combined input of dozens of individuals and countless redesigns to come up with the finished and approved insignia for our new Party. The logo is two pieces, the cog wheel and the pitchfork. Individually these pieces can speak to people, but combined they embody every element of who we are and what we are fighting for. This new Party symbol will come to be the banner of a new movement for working families who demand true social justice, a sovereign momeland for future generations of their folk, and a “safe space” to care for and raise their families.
The Traditionalist Worker Party will fight unceasingly in the streets, in the cities, the towns, and the back hollers for the values of faith, family and folk. Wherever globalism rears its ugly head we will be there to stand on the foundation of Tribe and Tradition to repel the usurpers and secure our people and our land. As the founder of the Legion of Saint Michael the Archangel, Corneliu Codreanu, once said “A people becomes aware of its existence when it becomes aware of its entirety, not only of its component parts and their individual interests.” We will awaken all classes of our people to unite together to fight for a better and brighter future for all of us.
The outer part of the logo is the cog wheel. The cog wheel symbolizes several different elements of our Party platform. First the cog represents our fight for industrial workers in America. Free Trade Agreements have utterly destroyed the industrial base of the United States in the past several decades. Republicans and Democrats both love the concept of Free Trade because it puts money in their financial backers pockets: the globalists and organized Jewry. An old truism is to “never trust any company that doesn’t make anything” and that counts doubly so for nations.
The American economy has been transformed into a service-based economy where manufacturing is at all time lows. Essentially, we’ve transitioned from a people who proudly create and produce things of real value for a living wage to a people who take turns shipping, handling, stocking, marketing, and hocking imported junk for the minimum wage. A report on the national economy and the economic “recovery” in the State of Delaware pointed out,
“In the late 1960s, manufacturing was nearly three-fifths of the state’s economy. The state shed jobs in the recession that began in 1969, but it needed only three months to replenish them, Olney and Pacitti calculate. Today, manufacturing has shrunk to less than one-third of the Delaware economy. The state needed more than three years from the start of the 2001 recession to get back to its previous jobs peak. Forty-five months after the end of the last recession, the state has only made up half the jobs it lost.”
The loss of our manufacturing sector doesn’t just hurt workers in factories, it decimates the industries that gather the raw materials, build pieces in the supply chain and impacts local businesses and municipalities when factories are shipped overseas because citizens have less income to spend in their community and towns and States have less tax dollars to provide needed services such as infrastructure, healthcare and caring for the needy. The dismantling of the industrial base of America doesn’t only produce a negative trickle-down effect on our economy, it’s imperiled our national security, impoverished our citizenry, bankrupted our treasury, and guaranteed that the incremental innovations which will create future jobs and careers will occur overseas.
We’ve been robbed blind, and up until now, there’s been no party willing and able to directly confront this outrage.
The globalists are outsourcing every job they can to inhumane Third World sweatshops which lack the most basic safety regulations and wage protections, then importing Third World laborers to do the jobs that remain. And it’s not just American workers that this system harms.
One report found,
“A flood of U.S. corn imports, combined with subsidies that favor agribusiness, are blamed for the loss of 2 million farm jobs in Mexico. The trade pact worsened illegal migration, some experts say, particularly in areas where small farmers barely eke out a living.”
Now American workers must not only look for lower paying service jobs as the entire economy reorients itself around the low paying service industry, these workers must compete for fewer jobs with a huge swell of legal and illegal immigrants battling for the same opportunities, driving down wages and benefits across the board.
We must not accept becoming slaves on the land our forefathers fought to secure for their future generations. Father Charles Coughlin said “I need not recall for you that both the laboring and agricultural classes of America are forced to work for less than a living wage while the owners of industry boastfully proclaim that their profits are increasing.” We must fight for working families while still allowing business to thrive, a coordination between owners and workers to benefit both sides and therefore the nation as a whole.
The Traditionalist Worker Party has a concise platform to put the economy back on track by ending Free Trade agreements, enacting tariffs to protect our industry, standing by the interests of the nation to become self-sufficient in the production of necessary and vital materials such as military defense components, steel, high-tech computers, infrastructure and other crucial parts of a self reliant nation. The cog as part of our insignia shows our dedication to working families that we will improve their lives by putting bread on their table and creating an environment where a man can provide for a wife and children and our promise to make our nation strong, healthy and independent.
The cog also represents is the notion of individuals becoming a component of a wider machine, the nation. We all have God-given abilities that if used properly can not only lift each of us up, but can lift all of us up. Each individual is a part of the national machine, from the lowliest janitor to the most powerful military leader or civil servant if everyone plays their part the machine runs smoothly.
The hardworking farmer feeds the nation. The coal miner keeps the lights on. Women nurture and educate the next generation, care for the helpless and feeble, and strengthen our homes, families, and communities. Police officers keep order. Not everyone can be the chief, but everyone has an equal honor in their respective station. The Traditionalist Worker Party believes in supporting the equal dignity of all people and encouraging everyone in their roles.
In our lives we must all “be the cog” to the best of our individual ability. We must reject the radical notion of selfish individualism which has come to dominate both our politics and culture, and dispense with the “American Dream” of becoming as wealthy as possible and then investing that wealth in aggrandizing yourself. We’re not opposed to entrepreneurialism, ambition, success, or wealth. We’re opposed to greed, excess, and individualism.
The cog also represents the marching forward of our movement. As the cog turns the revolution marches forward, a revolution that will never end. Politically and socially we must be the immune system of a living body of our folk, always on guard to repel and defeat anything that attempts to infect our people. Degeneracy, liberalism and Leftism will be stopped at the gates by our dedicated activists. To defend our dignity, our culture, our Faith and our people, we will never leave the ramparts and barricades. As Jose Antonio, the leader of the Spanish Falange said,
“The time when a man risks a comfortable life, or economic advantages, is when he feels himself filled with a mystic ardour by religion, country, or honour, or by a new sense of the society in which he lives… Everyone who throws himself into creating a revolution pledges himself to complete it: what cannot be done is to defraud it. “
Within the cog lies the pitchfork, a symbol of our connection to the soil. A people root themselves in the soil and seasons for the life giving bounty of nature for sustenance, trade and times of celebration. A people that becomes disconnected from nature becomes disconnected from Providence and their own ancestors. Modernity has destroyed our connection with both our blood and our soil. The Traditionalist Worker Party will reinvigorate an agrarian spirit in our people.
We will fight to ensure that farmers are protected from corporations like Monsanto that seek to steal farmers’ land. We will break the control that companies like Monsanto now hold on the very seeds we use to grow our food. We will wipe away the debts of farmers who have been conned by the agribusiness hustlers and predatory lenders. We must cherish our local connection to the soil and the Traditionalist Worker Party will support organic farmers and family farms to expand their production or start farms so that supermarkets and farmers markets can be stocked by local producers whenever practical.
The pitchfork also represents the concept of the peasants revolting against a cruel dictatorship. While we support a hierarchical society, that does not mean subservience to corrupt oligarchs. It is normal and healthy for a people to rise up against an illegitimate government that is not being run by the people or for the people. The Greeks rose up against Turkish occupation multiple times until Greece was once again run by the Greek people. In Romania, the Romanian people overthrew a corrupt communist leader Nicolae Ceaușescu after decades of Ceaușescu oppressing the people and persecuting the Church.
We as the people are being held in bondage not to leaders, but to bully boys of the globalist System. Both major political parties are in the pockets of big business and foreign powers and actively work to sell us out. It is time for the peasants to grab our pitchforks and tell the leaders and the world that we will not sit idly by as we are persecuted and pushed to the brink of demographic extinction. We are coming to flip over the tables and put into power leaders who are of our blood, of our values, of our culture and who will fight for our best interests.
Together the cog and the pitchfork will become our symbol of White working and middle class families who are tired of our current political system. Those who are exhausted by endless political correctness, racially discriminatory programs against Whites, State and local sovereignty being eroded by a tyrannical Federal regime, economic control by the globalist elites, mocking of our Faith, and the demographic displacement of the European people in North America now have an opportunity to stop picking the “lesser of two evils” and instead to stand together as a united front to fight for faith, family and folk. Corneliu Codreanu told his followers that “We will kill in ourselves a world in order to build another, a higher one reaching to the heavens.” The goal of the Traditionalist Worker Party will fight for this new world, a world that is healthy, safe and righteous.
With the help of housewives, dockworkers, veterans, students, and the rest, we have the chance to finally stop the control this illegitimate and corrupt regime has over us and our families and instead stand tall in the face of God, our ancestors and history itself to declare that we will be independent, we will be free and we will be sovereign.
It is time to fly the cog and the pitchfork because it is the symbol of resistance to this regime, this anti-Christ agenda of modern America and anti-White hatred, all it takes is your help to make it happen. In the coming weeks, we’ll be rolling out our party and accepting members. Be an early adopter, a stakeholder in a genuinely grassroots campaign to stand for our faith, our families, our communities, our identities, and our livelihoods.
