Fourteen Words

From RationalWiki
(Redirected from 14/88)
Jump to: navigation, search

The Fourteen Words is a White supremacist phrase which refers to the 14 word slogan "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children," though it can also refer to the slogan "Because the beauty of the White Aryan women must not perish from the earth."[1]

The slogans were both coined by noted racist David Lane in reference to an 88-word excerpt from Mein Kampf. Thus, white supremacists will sometimes combine "the 14 words" in reference to the excerpt in the phrase "14/88" where "88" has dual meaning as it also is used to reference H as the 8th letter of the alphabet, and thus the 88 can also be used to stand for HH, or "Heil Hitler".[2]

Hungarian far-right (though purportedly not Neo-Nazi) party Jobbik often uses the numbers 14 and 88, such as publishing their program for the 2010 elections in 88 pages[3] and having their party headquarter's phone number be (+36 1) 365 14 88.[4]
