In addition to holding white supremacist and anti-Semitic views, Mahon believes that any means are justifiable in the pursuit of “rescue[ing]” one's nation from the presence of foreigners. He reportedly told a German television crew in 1991 that “every means are justified, I mean every, to rescue your nation.” In his own account of the interview, Mahon wrote that “as long as governments do not listen to the yoemenry [sic] of their people, the working class can use whatever force necessary to insure [sic] the race survives financially and physically.”
Mahon has also advanced Holocaust denial. In an article from a December 1991-February 1992 issue of the White Beret, a white supremacist publication that Mahon edited, he discussed his visit to a German concentration camp. Mahon wrote that he “had a real laugh at the wild stories and oversize [sic] photos of the ‘victims.’” He also wrote that “compared to American prisons…this work camp would be like a Hilton or Marriot Hotel.” Additionally, Mahon has written that a book authored by Holocaust denier David Irving “became a reality for [him].”
Expressing his admiration for Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany, Mahon wrote in the same issue of White Beret of his visit to the Reichstag building that “it was very inspiring to walk up the same steps that Adolf Hitler walked up…It is illegal to give a stiff arm salute in Germany…However, I gave hundreds of them all across Germany. To hell with the De Jure gov't [sic] in Bonn and their repressive Jew laws.”
Mahon has supported the “lone wolf” theory of activism, which favors individual or small-cell underground activity, as opposed to above-ground membership organizations. According to the lone wolf model, individuals and small cells leave behind the fewest clues for law enforcement authorities, decreasing the chances that activists will end up getting caught.
Mahon outlined his views concerning white “separatism” as opposed to white supremacy in a statement included in a 2006 article published in the Journal of Political and Military Sociology. He explained that, in his opinion, white supremacy dictates that “ni--ers [are kept] on the other side of the railroad tracks” but are used, by whites, to mow lawns and “do their dirty work.”
“To me white supremacist or white power person-like[s] to keep the ni--ers on the other side of the railroad tracks, but they can mow their lawns in the day-mow their lawns and do their dirty work for you.”
He went on to outline the mental state of white, working class Americans, which he believed to be “up tight,” “nervous,” and “scared,” due to the alleged outsourcing of jobs to Mexico, the implementation of NAFTA, and the increased presence of “Orientals” and Mexicans.
“White people are very up tight right now. They know. They can't put their finger on it but every time they read the papers they read about more jobs going to Mexico, NAFTA got passed. They see more and more Orientals and more and more Mexicans… But most American people right now are very nervous-the working class people. Now the rich-and even some of the rich are starting to get scared…“
As a solution, Mahon offered white separatism, an idea frequently advanced by other white supremacists. Such a theory dictates that white people completely withdraw from social, government, economic, and geographic entities and create their own racially homogeneous society. Specifically, he proposed that whites should govern 13-14 states in the Northwest and Midwest, and that blacks should have control over 4-5 states in the South. Mahon also predicted that “major Black-Mexican gang wars” will take place.
“I think we're going to have to separate, you know, and get a geographical area we can call our own-have our own banking system, with an honest banking system and basically our law will be whatever is good for our race… I mean, we all want to get the whole country back but that's not a viable thing… Right now we've got 22-23 million blacks, about 20 million Hispanics… Because they're [whites] being pushed out of their neighborhood and I don't know-we're going to have major Black-Mexican gang wars right in my area here in the next 2-3 years. So even the cops admit to it. So we're going to have to separate somehow. Sit down at a table and say, ok, let us whites have say 13-14 states in the northwest, midwest. Well, maybe you Blacks, give you 4-5 states in the south. Cause eventually it's going to come apart anyway.”
