Old Nazis never die - they just deny.


This section will be added to when we move to the "official" FDB site. These three oldies are but a sample of some of the post-baby boomer lunacy that pervades the White Nationalist movement.

Jim Saleam.

We at Fight Dem Back do not want to besmirch the good name of Dr. James Saleam, 49, of Marrickville, Sydney.

We don't want to cast aspersions on his good character.


Unfortunately, we must, as he's a bit of a nut, really, and you can't trust a word that comes out of his mouth.


"Not exactly boy scouts..."

James Saleam joined the Australian National Socialist Party in the early 70s. The ANSP were friendly lads, who would often help old ladies across the road, and sell cookies door-to-door.

Well, they would have liked to, but it was hard to find the time what with all of the ANSP's other activities, which included:

Dressing up in full Nazi gear.
Assaulting anti-war and anti-apartheid demonstrators.
Stockpiling weapons (for the race war).
Desecrating synagogues.
And a wide variety of other such fun, fulfilling activites. While it's believed that the ANSP was behind the April 20, 1972 (Hitler's Birthday) bombing of the Brisbane office of the Australian Communist Party, what is known for a fact is that Jim Saleam was behind the firebombing of a left-wing Brisbane bookshop. He was arrested and found guilty in 1974.

In the mid-70s, Saleam grew tired of sunny Brisbane, and moved down south, enrolling in Sydney University.

In 1977, he founded the Australian National Alliance, the policies of which included the permanent reintroduction of the White Australia Policy. In 1978, the group pre-emptively announced that the "enemies of Australian Nationalism['s] days [are] numbered."

"The time for hesitation is through."

On ANZAC Day, 1982, Saleam found National Action, bringing together a number of small pro-nazi groups and religious sects into one big, happy family.

Under Saleam's guidance, National Action toned down the overt nazism (which Saleam recognised as being a barrier to gaining political credibility) and focused instead on the perceived "Asian Invasion," a brand of racism that was acceptable to a far greater audience.

The Jim Saleam Guide To Politics:
1. Don't mention that you worship Hitler.

And boy, did National Action live up to it's name. It was nation-wide, and by jove, was there ever some ACTION!

1983 was a pretty quiet year for NA... their stormtrooper squad, "The Sons of Kokoda" spent their evenings intimidating and assaulting Asian students and anti-racist activists, but it wasn't until 1984 that they really got into the swing of things.


Beat and hospitalised an anti-racist UNSW student leader.

Attacked the offices of Greenpeace and the Movement Against Uranium Mining, Community Aid Abroad, the Socialist Workers Party, Bob Gould's Pitt St Bookshop, and the Maoist East Wind Bookshop, to name a few.

...And threw bricks and firebombs through the windows of anti-apartheid activists Meredith Burgmann and John Brink respectively.

Things quieted down for National Action for a little while after that, until 1987, when they got back to their fire-bombing tricks in Adelaide. Jim Saleam's attentions were directed elsewhere, however... In 1987 he was convicted and jailed for insurance fraud.

But he was back on the streets in 1989, and he wasn't happy with Sydney African National Congress rep Eddie Funde. In January 89, Saleam supplied two NA members with a shotgun and some liquor (to shoot at Eddie and to calm their nerves, respectively) and sent them over to Funde's house, where Funde and his children were sleeping. The boys fired a few rounds at the house, and Saleam went down for 3 1/2 years in 1991 for possessing a firearm and organising the attack.

"I'm just here to get my baby out of jail."

But when the Doctor got out... he had changed!

The New Jim Saleam Guide to Politics:
1. Don't mention that you worship Hitler
2. Don't have such an overt army of violent thugs who go around trying to kill people - it doesn't win you votes.

To this end, Saleam joined the Australia First party. Founded in 1996 by disendorsed ALP member Graeme Campbell, Australia First would be a serious political party. Campbell could see that there were a number of voters who were disenchanted with the Labor and Liberal parties policies on such things as immigration and Aboriginal land rights... What he didn't see was One Nation. Australia First was absolutely trounced by Pauline Hanson at the 1998 Federal Elections.

Saleam has run as a candidate in local elections for Australia First, and insists he is a changed man: "I still believe in extra-parliamentary politics," he said in 2004, "but maybe the way I do it should be more akin to the way the Greens do it, rather than the more swashbuckling days of National Action, which was a contentious organisation."

These extra-parliamentary politics include putting up anti-multiculturalism posters in some of the more diverse parts of Sydney... written in Greek.

But at least he isn't organising goon squads to beat the daylights out of international students, right?

Enter the Patriotic Youth League.

Founded in late 2002 by Stuart McBeth, the youth wing of Australia First has been heavily mentored by Saleam... Especially in regards to the first rule of Saleamist Politics: Don't overtly worship Hitler.

Unfortunately, he hasn't taught them the second rule quite as well.

Sticker campaigns warning students at Newcastle University that they would contract AIDs if they slept with foriegn students, and that international students took university places from Australians, coinicided with a number of racially motivated verbal and physical attacks on international students.

One Kenyan students was badly beaten and it is believed that PYL members were behind the attack. Naturally, the PYL denies all involvement, though Victorian representative Luke Connors admitted that the student had been "outspoken againsts us from the start" and that similar attacks could occur at other places where the PYL set up.

While Saleam was obviously not physically responsible for these attacks, it is worrying that a man with a history such as his is in such a position of influence over a group of skinheads. Whether he be sending NA goons after his political enemies, or sending his son to the Marrickville Easter Parade dressed as a confederate soldier, it's been proven time and time again: Jim Saleam + Impressionable Youth = Trouble.

Of course, this is just a realistic and honest look at the political career of Dr. Jim Saleam... others see him differently:

James James, Dr. James Saleam (ala James James, Morrison Morrison by A.A. Milne)
Douglas Robertson, 2004

James James, Dr. James Saleam
was a radical nationalist man
He was determined to save Australia,
and developed a marvellous plan

James James wrote many papers
and published them all on the net
He hosted the Sydney Forum
and spoke to all that he met

James James was a great patriot,
though his enemies thought him the worst
He called together the Nationalists,
saying "We must put Australia first!"

James James, Dr. James Saleam,
commonly known as Jim,
searched everywhere for some good folk
and asked them to listen to him

James James said to the Nationalists
"We're fighting for our country and kin.
Now be prepared, and strengthen your will,
for when we go fight, we must win!"

How can we stay mad at you, Jim, with fly rhymes such as these?

Kerry Bolton Trivia: Impress your Friends! Delight your Party Guests!

Kerry has a half Maori son from a previous relationship.A photo of the two together, wearing full satanic garb, featured in an old Satanist magazine..

In terms of ideology he has been very consistent in promoting the same favourites regardless of whether he is being openly Nazi, supposedly conservative or
a bleeding-heart lefty. He is into Spengler, Evola and Yockey.

Spengler might still be known in wider circles but the other two are a bit esoteric. Spengler criticised the Nazis FROM THE RIGHT! Bolton often adopts Spenglers
jargon and terminology.

Evola was into mystical stuff and Hinduism. He wanted to turn things back to ancient times when there was a hierachical warrior leading caste society. He looked
down on the Nazis for their use of the lower orders.

Yockey wrote a very big and boring book dedicated to Hitler and lead an interesting life associating with Post-war Nazis.

David Palmer.(pics coming)

David Palmer, a 65 year old nazi memorabilia salesman from Sydney, seeks constant attention.

He loves nothing more than to make the papers or even the picture tube, and believes himself to be at the fore of the Australian white supremacist movement.

To this end, whenever the limelight begins to fade, he founds another group.

In his own words: "I'm the fuhrer of the Australian National Socialist Defence of Aryan People Movement (NSDAP) ... [the] Imperial Wizard of the Invisible Australian Empire of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. I'm also a qualified chef de cuisine."

He's also the fuhrer of the Australian Strikeforce Guards for Aryan Resistance and Defence (ASGARD) and vice president of the Australian branch of the British Israel World Federation.

During the 80s, Palmer was involved with National Action, but quit the group after a falling-out with Jim Saleam.

On the 20th of April, 1990 (the anniversary of Hitler's birthday) Palmer started NSDAP.

NSDAP have maintained a small following - including such people as Peter Coleman (founder of another, more Christian-centric, Australian brand of the KKK), Ross "The Skull" May and fellow military dealer Robert Keith Leys.

NSDAP remains a small group, though it has tried to increase it's size through it's "AIDS-free breeding facility for women desiring impregnation by young Aryan men."

It can be assumed that this has been an ineffective campaign.

"The KKK took my baby away."

As already mentioned, Palmer loves nothing more than getting his face in the paper, so when the Australian media went KKKrazy in 1999, David was quick to jump on the bandwagon.

In June 1999, Palmer founded the Australian Knights of the KKK and declared himself Imperial Wizard.

He claims to have a number of chapters (or Klaverns) around the country, including one in Melbourne, one in Wollongong, three in Sydney and a further three in Queensland.

In mid-1999, Palmer also claimed that a number of KKK members held official positions within the One Nation party, and further operatives still had infiltrated the ranks of the two major parties.

While Palmer maintains that his KKK is an "invisible empire" there is little evidence of such a vast network, nor is there evidence that Palmer had any success infiltrating any mainstream party.

That said, it is confirmed that he some success infiltrating One Nation, with a member being ejected in early June 99, NSDAP member Robert Leys (although he late disassociated himself with the KKK, claiming to be a member of the WCOTC - this contradicts statements made to the Age, in which both he and Palmer claimed he was a Grand Titan of the KKKK)

Peter Coleman (an NSDAP member and founder of a more Christian-centric Australian KKK) was also expelled.

ASGARD and the British Israel World Federation.

Despite its awesome acronym, ASGARD is just a name... no meetings, no members who aren't also in NSDAP or the KKK... Being the president of such a fiction is merely an attempt to claw one's way back into the limelight.

The BIWF lives in a similar never-never land - an anti-semitic bookstore at the most, with no meetings and no real members.


Palmer lives in a fantasy-world - a sad old man assocciating with other sad old men and some confused transient youth... to watch them prancing about in SS outfits and white sheets would be to inspire pity, yet Palmer is still potentially dangerous. Asked by A Current Affair what he would do if his daughter was to marry a non-Aryan, he replied: "...I'd do more than just disown her. I'd do whatever is physically necessary to restrain her, lock her up, kidnap her...even kill the other person who is trying to contaminate our gene pool."
