“Strandwolf’s Creed” by Michael Schmidt
The Black Battlefront Manifesto
These are ideological blog posts by prominent anarcho-fascist writer Michael Schmidt from 2010 and 2011.
These posts were once published at strandwolf.blogspot.com but were taken down by Schmidt in 2015 once
his identity as the writer was revealed. Before being outed as a white supremacist, Schmidt was best known
for co-authoring the controversial anarchist history Black Flame with longtime friend and collaborator
Lucien van der Walt.
“Strandwolf’s Creed” is deeply personal, revealing the author’s political vision as the product of his proud
Afrikaner heritage. Schmidt’s outline for Boer progress is steeped in history, providing a racist, elitist, and
deterministic view of not only human evolution, but human progress well into the 21st Century. Through his
writings as “Strandwolf” (or, early on, “Ardent Vinlander”), Schmidt is building the plan for his movement, a
red-brown admixture of anarchism and white power.
Black Battlefront, the militant group fueled by this manifesto, would be the culmination of decades of
activism for Schmidt, allowing him to recruit activists into a whites-only organization with aggressive racism
at its core (curiously an “anti-racist” concept to the author). Schmidt’s calls for racial segregation closely
mirror his recommendations for the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF), revealed in a leaked
These writings coincide with posts by Schmidt as “Karelianblue” (in the white supremacist Stormfront
forums) and “Françoise Le Sueur” (on Facebook), where Schmidt was actively recruiting for Black
Battlefront. For background, see Schmidt’s posts here or here.

White African National-Anarchist
The Strandwolf (“beach wolf”) is the brown hyaena found on the lonely Atlantic beaches of the Namib
desert: with more powerful jaws and greater stamina than a lion, the hyaena hunt in matriarchal packs and,
inverting their clitori, are impossible to rape. They are viewed by the indigenous people as spirit-animals.
Strandwolf is the blog of Black Battlefront, an anti-racist revolutionary cadre network of White African
politico-social soldiers in Southern Africa who aim at defending our unique culture, under the anarchist black
flag! We take our inspiration from militants and cultural warriors of the calibre of Nestor Makhno, Kai
Murros, Jim Goad and Troy Southgate. Strandwolf is a ghost in the machine of the African night, a spectral
flicker on the shores of the Skeleton Coast, a low-slung hunter on the night-time highway that stretches
forever away from the roiling smokes of Johannesburg into the bleach-and-acetate reaches of the platteland
where gaunt windpompe scratch stars in the sky.
MY CREED PART I: CONQUEST – by Ardent Vinlander
Wednesday, February 17, 2010, 4:48am
1. The white (wo)man is in Africa by conquest. This is inescapable; that gunpowder beats spear, wolves
rule over sheep. And yet we are human and not animals, thus we mark our territory not with urine but
2. This right of conquest may not be ethically “right” but it is the forge of history – and the alloy that
results, its temper and strength are then set. How we deal with that is both rooted in, and starts, now.
3. The implication is that primitivism, Africanism or any qualified or absolute return to a pre-colonial
“state of grace” is impossible. Also clear is that redress and reparations for past wrongs, grievous
though they may be, are impossible. Thus may the Herero seek apology from the Germans for
genocide, but not redress.
4. And so, only those directly guilty of actual crimes can be held responsible; future generations cannot
be made to pay for the “sins of their fathers”.
5. The Xhosa nation was a formidable foe – the Battle of Amatola being the supreme example – and it
took nine wars to suppress them. The Zulu nation was a formidable foe – the Battle of Isandlwana
being the supreme example – but shortly they too were reduced, as others before them. There is no
shame in going down fighting to superior forces.
6. Our enemies are not those who fight us in the open, hoping to mark their territory with our blood, but
those who rot us from within, corrupting the will.
7. The inescapable lot of the defeated is humility and servitude, but there is no shame in lowly status, for
all parts need to function for the good of the whole.
8. Gunpowder and the lash are not in themselves progress, but they disciplined fractious hordes to a
common purpose, for the good of the whole.
9. That purpose was civilisation, as the white (wo)man brought electric light, roads, canals, plantations,
mines, engines, aircraft, automobiles, schooling, faith – both inspiration and aspiration, without which
all peoples go to seed.
MY CREED PART II: CULTURE – by Ardent Vinlander
Wednesday, February 17, 2010, 4:51am
1. Cultural identity is not fixed – and often involves “sub-cultural” norms defined by peer group
education and experience, locality, dialect and so forth.
2. So there are no cultural absolutes, no “pure” culture. The example of the West African origins of rock
'n roll is evidence of this.
3. And yet cultural identity proves exceptionally strong – determinant of identity, adherence, cleavage,
and ultimately of a people’s fate.
4. In the age of the Internet and mobile communications, one’s “community” is often no longer localised
or even restricted to much more than a dialect group or interest group. Thus while some communities
are entirely “virtual”, others are very much bound by real-time/space.
5. In this period of flux, then, cultural currents and sub-cultural undertows pull in various directions –
towards fragmentation and specialisation, the niche, and towards consolidation and universalism, the
6. Both are “artificial” to the extent that they are intentionally striven for, yet both are “natural” to the
extent that they are instinctually driven.
7. This may manifest both – and often simultaneously – in autarch-individualism and in mob-mentality
8. Culture then cannot be assessed as “reactionary” merely because it seeks to conserve, artificially or
naturally, a set of values, beliefs, practices and artefacts. In the same light, a culture cannot be
assessed as “progressive” merely because it seeks to change, artificially or naturally, a set of values,
beliefs, practices and artefacts.
9. Progress and reaction only have meaning in relation to human rights and ethics, in other words, in
relation to the standard of the Golden Rule. But the Golden Rule is rusted by weakness: it allows no
place for defensive actions aimed at supporting a culture’s right to life, limb and liberty. In other
words, ethics need to come armed.
MY CREED PART III: AGGRESSION – by Ardent Vinlander
Wednesday, February 17, 2010, 6:00am
1. Aggression is a natural and artificial human capability. In other words, it is both an instinctive
fighting mechanism, defending life, limb and liberty – and a conscious defence of higher values,
Including territory, beliefs, practices and artefacts.
2. Aggression is not always expressed as violence although it always contains within it the threat of
violence – as it is also expressed as territory, authority, ability and consciousness, all of which are a
combination of both artificial and natural prerogatives.
3. Natural prerogatives are essentially grounded in biological warfare, the defence of the species and of
its ability to survive and propagate, its instinctive motor ability to grasp and shape the physical realm;
they are the flint-tipped spears by which our ancient ancestors routed bears from the caves which
became our shelters.
4. Artificial prerogatives are essentially grounded in psychological (some would call it spiritual)
warfare, the defence of the species’ ability to interpret and predict, its learned diagnostic ability to
intuit and give shape to our dreams; they are the ochred cave paintings of Lascaux and other
5. The origins of these ingrained prerogatives are shrouded in the emergence of consciousness within the
fog of pre-history – those unrecorded centuries of our coming into being.
6. And yet we know that the development of speech, the root of both natural and especially of artificial
prerogatives, was driven by the need to communicate defence against the sabre-toothed which stalked
our early kind.
7. Forged in the fires of social defence against our racial enemies, speech gave flight to consciousness.
Thus was aggression the foundation on which we were able to later erect the flying buttresses of
8. So equipped with social organisation, communication, the tools of biological and psychological
warfare, and higher consciousness, we ascended from the status of animals undifferentiated from the
natural landscape to the Colossus which stands astride the world.
9. And yet we retain our binary nature: our feet planted in the soil of our origins, our eyes searching
deep into the far reaches of interstellar space, knowing we are not the measure of all things – and yet
measuring all things, knowing we conquer by understanding.
10.Thus social aggression is the foundation of our racial consciousness and our racial consciousness is
the tool by which we conquer.
MY CREED PART IV: RACE
Sunday, September 26, 2010, 2:08am
1. Homo Sapiens Sapiens is the sole survivor of discrete, parallel yet seldom contemporaneous and only
sometimes competing human strains of development. It is in reference to this sole survivor that we
incorrectly speak of the “human race” which outiasted other proto-human races including the
Neanderthals, Homo Erectus and Homo Robustus.
2. And yet the Sapiens Sapiens species is diverse, with its greatest smorgasbord of genes pooled in the
great mother-continent of Africa – which by the law of averages should thus have produced its highest
levels of cultural diversity, consciousness and civilisation. And yet the brute tribalism that dominates
from the Sahara to the Savannah is almost undifferentiated in its suffocating, stultified primitiveness,
locked in to ancestor-worship voodoo and unquestioning authoritarianism. Even the physical features
of the people have only slightly evolved, producing a narrow range almost entirely represented by the
Nilotics and the Bantu.
3. Only the slender archaic haplogroup F strand of this great gene-pool proved adventurous, trekking
further afield to leave Africa and establish a unique root-race in what is today the Middle East. It is
from this root-race that the greatest physical-cultural diversity of the world emerged, from the
blackest Papuan headhunters, to the reddest Pictish warriors.
4. These incredibly diverse haplogroup populations were differentiated by hundreds of thousands of
years of genetic adaptation, mutation, in a word, evolution. The result was the great racial gene-pools
of what would today be recognised as Asiatics, Native Americans, Australasians, South Asians – and
our own race, the Europeans, in particular represented by the haplogroups R1a, R1b, and I1.
5. Each race is uniquely adapted to their environmental conditions, in other words, they have a genetic
connection to the landscapes within which they developed. This is expressed in terms of the race’s
physique: stocky build, black skin, brown eyes and broad noses for the Aborigines of arid Australasia;
tall build, white skin, pale eyes and narrow noses for the Nordics of icy Scandinavia. And it is also
expressed in terms of culture: the Aboriginal cave paintings of Ayers Rock have the same function as
the Cro Magnon cave paintings of Lascaux, the interpretation of the natural-physical world in
spiritual-psycological terms; these expressions tie the race to the landscape, a landscape which very
directly gave rise to their racial form; thus each modern race has a natural ancestral homeland.
6. Neccesity is indeed the mother of invention. The extreme environments into which proto-Europeans
wandered demanded the utmost of their ingenuity, skill, cunning and inventiveness. We presume there
were proto-Europeans who also tried to sit on their bums drinking maize-beer watching the women
work, but that they were wiped out in their first winter. And yet we still find “21st Century Huntergatherers” – derived from the same root-race as the Europeans – who have clearly not been pressed by
circumstance to evolve over the past 10,000 years; no hoes, no millet, no necessity, no invention.
7. Some of the tension in forming civilisations arises between sedentaries (those who build settlements,
based on agricultural surplus), and nomads (who at the most, drive cattle). But there is a clear
distinction between the wandering Vikings who built ships and roamed far and wide for plunder and
women – establishing settlements with permanent structures and a written culture along the way in
many cases, and the African herdsmen who simply chase the seasons from waterhole to waterhole. In
other words, the Viking was never a true nomad.
8. Africans did build tribal-militarist kingdoms with some elements of civilisation and some attempt at
building large-scale settlements: Ashante, Ulundi, Great Zimbabwe etc. But although the Portuguese,
on first arriving in West Africa in the 1500s, treated the local king as equal because they had a
standing army, a form of “university” and a bureaucracy, the West Africans had fallen from that quasiMedieval state into savagely warring factions by the time European civilisation penetrated the interior
– and never recovered.
9. So “Medieval” is the closest that blacks have come to civilisation, while some still today languish
10,000 years behind the Europeans who gave Africa its science, industry, infrastructure, education,
medicine and large-scale agriculture, most of it fallen into terrible disrepair under black rule since the
late 1950s. In order to, if not forestall this decay, at least build the bulwarks of a white redoubt strong
enough to stand against this darkling tide, we require organisation.

MY CREED PART VI: NATIONAL-ANARCHISM
Tuesday, November 16, 2010, 9:54am
1. The form of organisation worst suited to the creation of intelligently-run, ergonomic, environmentally
sustainable, progressive, innovative white communities is statist capitalism, capitalism because it is an
alien Judeo-Christian system which lives parasitically off the social wealth created by all races, the
white foremost among them, and statism because it is the armoured claw of the parasites, the enforcer
of the inequality which keeps the majority of our people poor.
2. Previous forms of organisation aimed at creating a whole society have failed dismally, especially
grand apartheid and its British, Dutch, and Afrikaner predecessors. The apartheid state was a
corruption of white rule not only because of the abominable, inhuman way in which it treated its
black neighbours – but because it lived parasitically off the white working class which it employed as
its ultimately disposable enforcers of minority elite privilege. Likewise, white separatism such as the
Orania project which are merely this system in miniature, are anathema to us, as is self-defeating
white terrorism such as the Wit Wolve, devoid as it is of ethics or strategic thinking.
3. The form of organisation best suited to the creation of a white society of recognisably human and
humane form is revolutionary anarchism, a progressive socio-political form which eschews the
reactionary reinforcement of white supremacist state/capitalist oppression and exploitation, and which
also avoids the pitfalls of either precipitate, terroristic adventurism or the seductions of a retreat into
an unattainable mystical past – a form that boldly attacks privilege and parasitism on all fronts, the
sweeping, multidimensional battlespace.
4. And the form of revolutionary anarchism that best suits the construction of an alternate, autogestive
white society is one that draws on an eclectic set of principles derived from various leading-edge
traditions. From Jim Goad we take the sensibility of a combative working class mentality that is
plainspoken and honest. From Nestor Makhno we take the military-tactical lessons of locating
ourselves within the heartlands of our communities, and of being internally of one mind yet externally
pluralistic in our alliances. From Troy Southgate we take the metapolitical lessons of our spiritualpsychological ties to the landscape of Africa, land we won by right of conquest.
5. These ideological wellsprings enable us to ground our battle in an actual physical and mental space.
An in order to be truly grounded, we need to be scrupulously egalitarian and what this means in the
southern African battlespace is that we are compelled to judicially recognise the right of white
anarchists and black anarchists to establish their own separate, culturally-distinct formal organisations
and informal networks. For while African revolutionary anarchists, by the rationale of even the
Bolshevik-tainted international anarchist movement, it is entirely legitimate to establish separate
white anarchist organisations, based on the following three points:
6. Our status as a demographic / cultural minority (in the US that means blacks, Asians, Hispanics and
Native Americans, but here it means whites, Asians, Coloureds and Indigenous). This might refer to a
group being a minority in a specific geographic locality but also relates to white cultural hegemony
which obviously no longer obtains in terms of primary cultural indicators such as the content of
national public broadcasters. Secondary cultural indicators, such as the wearing of Western dress by
most blacks, is not, however, evidence of the survival of white hegemony.
7. Our status as a vulnerable group. Here the driving factors range from the declining white population
(about 500,000 white South Africans have emigrated since 1994, while fertility rates also decline), to
the economic status, the class, of the white population group. According to a 2009 Unisa study, 1.5million out of 4 million whites are poor, often unemployed, working class, another 1.8-million are in
the better paid skilled section of the working class. Only 423,000 are middle class and only 310,000
are wealthy. This points to the necessity, with 3,3-million whites in the working class or unemployed
underclass, of organising primarily among those classes.
8. Our status as a group suffering judicial or extrajudicial discrimination. Here the factors include the
wave of largely unrecognised race-hate crimes against the farming community, especially in
Zimbabwe and South Africa, and of course race-discriminatory legislation aimed at curbing the socioeconomic mobility of whites, again marked in those two countries in particular.
9. So, in order to organise as a legitimate social-revolutionary force, grounded in southern African
realities, and to fight in an ethically-armed, community-grounded manner against the extinction of the
remnants of our hard-won geographic and cultural conquests in Africa, we form a revolutionary
“black” (ie: anarchist) organisation, to engage on the multidimensional battlefront: Black Battlefront.
MY CREED PART VII: HEARTLAND
Sunday, April 17, 2011, 6:20am
1. In order for the Aryan African working class to adequately defend itself against its enemies, it is first
necessary to define our territory and to be explicit about who those enemies are. Though the
demographic demon of black genetic propagation is our acknowledged primary threat and challenge
to our foothold on the continent, black people per se are not our enemies. In fact, in order to
adequately argue in the court of international opinion our right to self-determination requires that we
fundamentally acknowledge the black’s equal right to those parts of Africa that they in turn won by
right of conquest, however defined.
2. This in turn requires a Swiss-like cantonal policy of armed neutrality, of watchful goodneighbourliness, which will allow black and Aryan Africans to live peaceably according to their own
separate traditions, in their agreed territories, and where necessary, naturally to conduct cordial, if not
fraternal, bilateral diplomatic and commercial relations in an anti-imperialist fashion.
3. So then, who are our enemies? They include the propagators of abstraction: Jesus, Mohammed, Freud
and other progenitors of the idea of an invisible, voodoo power that knows better than we, the living
biological distillation of millions of years of real, hardcore survivalist evolution. This includes postmodernists like Deboard, zero-sum fanatics like Pol Pot and other obfuscators of real life as lived by
real people. These enemies obscure clear thought among Aryan people.
4. The propagators of guilt: Mandela, Fanon, King, Guevara and other debasers of Aryan culture – plus
their liberal media and marketing hacks, who push this crippling dogma via their footholds in insecure
Western institutions of debased learning and culture. This includes feminists, Maoists and others who
deny the right of conquest – and its uplifting, civilising mission. These enemies sap our will by
denying our unassailable centuries of cultural, military, scientific and economic achievement.
5. The propagators of parasitism: Stalin, Rothschild, Oppenheimer, Rupert, Sexwale and other drummajorettes of the capitalist dysfunction whereby the hard-working, honest majority in the Occident
(most often Aryan) is regularly dispossessed by non-productive Oriental elements (sometimes Semitic
– both Arab and Jew). This includes investment bankers and all supra-national expressions of
parasitic, non-productive greed, usury and outright robbery of the public purse.
6. And in dispossessing our enemies, what then should our territory be? Our territories can historical be
defined in numerous ways, and many resconstructionist projects look towards the old Boer Republics
of the Transvall and Orange Free State – but these agrarian cultures have long been lost to British
imperialism and their local comprador lackeys, swallowed up by liberal, multicultural
industrialisation. Not that we reject industrialisation, but rather its deleterious effects: the compound
system of impressed immigrant labour, the deliberate creation of a black underclass to undercut
already slender white working class gains.
7. We can rather lay claim to the western portions of the Old Cape and its hinterland, settled from 1652:
from Cape Town as far east as Graaf-Reinet, sweeping northwards to embrace the Karoo and Kalahari
and further, across the Orange River into Old German South-West Africa, as far north as the Karas
region’s northern boundary and as far west as Lüderitz. Surrendering the gold- and coal-mining,
industrial and financial heartland plus the eastern ports, farms and plantations to majority-black South
Africa would nevertheless leave us with a coherent territory, predominantly Afrikaans-speaking, with
a white and coloured majority, of hardy seafaring and farming folk, whose economic strength rests on
the civil port of Cape Town, on wine and fruit growing, on diamond-mining, tourism, clothing mills,
fishing, game and sheep farming, with its own university, hospitals and tertiary institutions, navy, air
force, press, broadcasters and unique cultural traditions stretching back three and a half centuries.
8. But it is insufficient to simply lop off this historical Aryan African heartland: its civil, judicial,
legislative and military powers must be decentralised to District level, all Districts to be federated
horizontally and to be administered by regularly rotated, immediately-recallable delegates narrowly
delegated by quarterly plenary District Conventions whereby residents hold all executive decisionmaking powers. And all Districts shall gather their delegates annually or as often as required to form a
Convention of Districts which shall be narrowly mandated to decide on matters of national
9. On the national question, while all black and Asian residents of the territory shall automatically be
deemed without prejudice to be foreigners, most of the blacks presumed to be South African citizens,
all Aryan, Coloured and Bushman residents of proven Old Cape / Karras heritage shall automatically
be citizens, with preferred residency and citizenship offered to Aryans of any origin, provided that the
four historic towns of Stellenbosch (1679), Franschhoek (1687), Swellendam (1743) and Graaf-Reinet
(1786) be reserved exclusively for Aryans, and that each District Convention have the right to decide
on racial zones of use and exclusion.
