28 July 2013
Prediction: When all guns are confiscated in 1989 and eight hundred thousand citizens are arrested, the time has come for the Organization to begin its plan to overthrow the United States government and eliminate all nonwhites from the Earth.
Predictor: William Luther Pierce, writing under the pseudonym Andrew McDonald in The Turner Diaries
Reality: Conservatives of today have a lot of the same paranoia that Pierce exhibited back in the 1980s when he wrote this steaming pile of crap, though they detest being called racist. If anything positive can be said about Pierce, at least he wasn't a whiny little hypocrite. He completely understood he was a racist.
In an earlier post about this book, the race war begins in the late 1990s. This date is from the original publication in the early 1980s. The later book adds eight years to the rest of the dates, so I assume in the later version the gun confiscation happens in 1997.
This is the first time I will be using the label "Thanks to Paul Brians". Professor Brians has compiled an extensive list of fiction that deals with nuclear war. I am using this as a source for this blog and have found a lot of references to predictions with dates I would not have found otherwise. There is enough source material now that Sundays will now become Nuclear War Day, predictions from books about nuclear wars that should have taken place by now and thankfully haven't. There will also be several exact date predictions I'll be using that will pop up throughout the year.
