National Alliance

My post apparently got eaten. So here it is again:

How many members are there of the late William Pierce’s National Alliance? The CNN obit for Pierce cited that there are 7,000-8,000 members, while this Gazette article ( says that, “…would require recruiting another 2,000 members, bringing the group to double its estimated size.” Me being horrible at math and all, does that mean its estimated size is 1,000 members or 2,000?

So, what are the accurate figures? Thanks in advance.
