30 to Watch, They Say


Southern Poverty Law Center, Montgomery, Alabama

2,690 words

Thirty politicals (“haters”) the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and government authorities are watching, that is.

The anti-civil libertarian organization has published “30 New Activists Heading Up the Radical Right” [2] (The Intelligence Report, Summer 2012). Many names on the list are actually not new.

The racist, Alabama-based SPLC is a tax-exempt organization. Its CEO and president is attorney J. Richard Cohen, who was part of the Countering Violent Extremism Working Group of the Department of Homeland Security in 2010.

The SPLC operates a covert spy network targeting primarily politically- and religiously-oriented white citizens, organizations, and publications; institutes civil lawsuits to destroy organizations and individuals by sullying their reputations and bankrupting them—an end run around the First Amendment’s guarantees of freedom of speech and association; and cooperates on a large scale behind closed doors with government agencies to achieve the same objective.

The SPLC works with, instructs, and sets racial and ideological agendas for local, state, and federal police agencies, including the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, supplying data on private citizens and groups that it is illegal for the government to collect.

The SPLC also produces highly-influential anti-white, anti-conservative, and anti-Christian propaganda widely utilized by the Establishment press, academia, schools, and so on to defame and marginalize American targets.

The Great White Threat


Rabbi-attorney Howard A. Mandell, Chairman, Board of Directors, SPLC

The most striking feature of this year’s list is the nearly deserted landscape of pro-white groups ordinarily targeted by the organization. As a result, staffers have moved Left on the political spectrum into mainstream conservatism in order to find new “threats” to offer their Jewish-Leftwing-government constituency.

There are also an extraordinarily high number of non-whites on the new list. As everyone knows, SPLC enemies lists are whiter than a GOP convention. They never look like America. Jews are virtually never represented, and blacks are named only if they are anti-Jewish.

I am uncertain of the ethnicity of two men on the list, Michael Boldin and Lou Engle. They could be white or Jewish. I have subjectively classified Boldin as Jewish and Engle as white.

In addition, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes has said in interviews that he is part-Amerindian and one-quarter Mexican, inflating the number of non-whites even further, if true. For now, I have listed him as white, but Rhodes illustrates once again the ongoing process of racial blurring [4], dilution, and blending-away of the white race.

Of the 30 names on the list, then, an estimated 24 (80%) are white, four are Jewish, one is Syrian-Lebanese, and one is black.

The Jews, along with their SPLC-supplied thoughtcrime categories, are: Michael Boldin (?), 39 (Patriot Movement), Michael L. Brown, 57 (“Anti-Gay”), Pamela Geller, 54 (Anti-Muslim), and David Yerushalmi, 55 (Anti-Muslim).

The Syrian-Lebanese is WorldNetDaily’s Joseph Farah, 57 (Patriot Movement), and the lone black is New Black Panther Party leader Malik Zulu Shabazz, 46.

The 24 whites on the list include one female, Virginia Abernethy. They range in age from 29 (Kevin DeAnna) to 77 (Abernethy), with an average age of 55 and a median age of 59.

For a list of “new” leaders of the “radical right,” this is a pretty old group.

Among the American revolutionaries Benjamin Franklin was the oldest, and his life is worth studying for multiple reasons. One of them: white survival now depends largely on the radicalization of an older generation.

The future lies with the young, of course, who must be recruited, but, because of aging demographics, the collapse of the white family, and the socialization of the young and transmission of culture by anti-white institutions such as the mass media and educational system rather than the family, positive social change will inevitably depend to a large extent upon older whites [5].

If you’re comparatively young, I cannot impress upon you strongly enough that tempus fugit—time flies. Unfortunately, even when stated as baldly as this, it is impossible to completely grasp the overwhelming significance of this truth except in retrospect.

With each passing year there are fewer and fewer whites. And the surveillance and persecution of the small minority opposed to anti-white racism, genocide, and totalitarianism will continue to intensify.

Following are the names of the individuals on the list broken down by the SPLC’s ideological labels. In truth, Jews and government probably regard all subjects in pretty much the same light: as anti-Semites, “neo-Nazis,” “racists,” “haters,” and, though the term is studiously avoided here, “domestic terrorists.” This, at any rate, is what the profiles themselves suggest.

The number of people included in each category is shown in parentheses.

The Patriot Movement (9)

  1. Baptist Pastor Chuck Baldwin, 59
  2. Michael Boldin (Jewish?), 39
  3. Tom DeWeese, 63
  4. Joseph Farah, 57 (Syrian-Lebanese)
  5. Alex Jones, 40 (his wife is “of Jewish descent” [6], and therefore his child or children as well)
  6. Accuracy in Media’s Cliff Kincaid, 57 (“supported heavily by right-wing billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife”)
  7. Stewart Rhodes, 46 (self-described one-quarter Mexican and, additionally, part Amerindian)
  8. James Timothy Turner, 55
  9. Michael Brian Vanderboegh, 59

I’ve moved James Timothy Turner, the only person classified as belonging to the Sovereign Citizens Movement, into this category.

Talk radio host Alex Jones is characterized as a “conspiracy”-minded libertarian who “exploits racial animosities.” The authors miss the irony of those charges.

Arguably the most important member not only of the Patriot Movement category, but of the entire list—at least in theory—is Oath Keepers founder and new listee Stewart Rhodes [7].

Rhodes, a Yale Law School graduate, former US Army paratrooper, and Ron Paul staffer, in 2009 founded Oath Keepers, an organization of active military and police personnel who promise to adhere to their oaths to uphold the US Constitution.

If on the level, such an organization poses a serious threat to Jews and government, just as the SPLC implies.

Beyond the threshold question of authenticity, however, Oath Keepers is obviously a sitting duck for infiltration and subversion.

The SPLC is notable for its solicitousness toward big government, particularly the anti-white, police state elements with which it maintains intimate ties. This explains the group’s strong emphasis upon challenges to government authority from the right.

The Left, including the radical Left, is evidently viewed as the ship of state’s helmsman, and hence an integral component of the ruling class.

White Nationalists (7)

  1. Virginia Abernethy, 77, professor emerita of psychiatry and anthropology, Vanderbilt University
  2. Stormfront’s Don Black, 59
  3. Kevin DeAnna, 29
  4. David Duke, 62
  5. Psychology professor Kevin MacDonald, 68
  6. Kyle Rogers, 35
  7. Jared Taylor, 61

In its profile of Abernethy, the SPLC claims that the American Third Position Party (A3P), with which she is affiliated, “may be the most important hate group in America at the moment”—which conveniently overlooks formidable rivals like their own organization and the ADL, and is quite revealing about the state of the pro-white movement.

The SPLC takes credit for having Professor MacDonald’s teaching duties reduced and generating an attack by academic colleagues on his professional work.

It says of the Council of Conservative Citizens’ Kyle Rogers that he “posts anti-Semitic tirades under the name ‘Valhalla’ on Stormfront.” So either Rogers voluntarily revealed his true identity in selected posts or in his Stormfront profile accessible to other registered members (including SPLC spies), or the organization has illegitimate access to such confidential data.

The Jews call Jared Taylor’s ideas “crudely white supremacist,” but generously acknowledge that he is not anti-Semitic. However, they are pressuring him, both from within and without, to ban “anti-Semites” from attending American Renaissance conferences in the same way that he bans critical discussion of Jews from his magazine and website—where, however, Jews are permitted to criticize whites.

“The problem for Taylor,” they write, “is that many of the most active participants at his conferences and the most committed members of the American radical right are passionately anti-Semitic. To ban them for their anti-Semitic views would be a devastating blow” to his organization.

So, that is evidently the dilemma they face at present.

Anti-Gay (5)

  1. Evangelical Christian David Barton, 58
  2. Messianic Jew Michael L. Brown, 57
  3. Charismatic/Pentecostal Christian Lou Engle, 59
  4. Reverend Bryan Fischer, 61
  5. Jason “Molotov” Mitchell, 32

Samuel Wolfe, SPLC’s Lead LGBT Staff Attorney

If you search outside the SPLC’s narrow profiles—and sometimes even within them—it quickly becomes apparent that none of the persons classified as “anti-gay” are single-issue, with the exception, perhaps, of Messianic Jew Michael Brown.

I learned from the SPLC’s profile of Brown—I had not known it before—that the party line on homosexuality now is that homosexual child molesters such as college football coach Jerry Sandusky are not homosexual: “Researchers established long ago that chronic pedophiles like Sandusky [who is married] have no sexual interest in any adult and can’t be considered homosexual or heterosexual.”

Evidently that is why the words “homosexual” or “gay” appear nowhere in Wikipedia‘s long entry on Sandusky, and why “LGBT” is missing from the Categories section at the end of the article.

Because “anti-gay” is not what the people identified here are solely about, this category more correctly illustrates two developing trends in System ideology and policy.

One is the extension of the “hate” model of censorship to any criticism of homosexuality.

The other is an expanding anti-Christian agenda. Several people listed under other ideological categories are also essentially conservative Christian activists. No matter how tame or even non- or anti-Christian the religion becomes, the Jews’ hatred of it is never curbed.

One listee, Bryan Fischer, illustrates how the System, having decimated the ranks of white nationalism and the radical right, is now busy tightening the noose on mainstream Christians and conservatives.

Fischer is a nationally syndicated Christian radio host, pastor, official of the pusillanimous American Family Association founded by Donald Wildmon, and former chaplain of the Idaho State Senate. He is a graduate of Stanford University and the Dallas Theological Seminary.

Yet Jews are determined to sever the AFA from him in order to push the organization even further away from historic Christianity.

Wikipedia states that “Fischer opposes abortion, national health care, environmentalism, gay adoption, and same-sex marriage. Fischer’s controversial comments on racial and ethnic minorities were cited by Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in explaining the hate group designation they gave to the AFA in November 2010.”

In its profile of Fischer the SPLC smirks that after the 61-year-old Christian minister wrote an AFA Internet piece critical of Amerindians, “A young AFA staffer, Elijah Friedeman, 17, issued his own statement on the AFA blog, in which he called Fischer’s claims ‘repulsive.'”

Fischer’s comments were duly removed.

Neo-Nazi (3)

  1. Former Aryan Nations member and Christian Identity preacher Morris L. Gulett, 56
  2. Randal Lee Krager, 38
  3. VNN website proprietor Alex Linder, 46

I’ve moved into this category Randal Lee Krager, the founder and leader of the “neo-Nazi skinhead group Volksfront,” classified separately by the SPLC as a “Racist Skinhead.”

In its Gulett profile, the SPLC notes that Richard Butler’s Aryan Nations was “wrecked by a 2000 SPLC lawsuit”—one of many private associations destroyed by the organization in this way over the decades.

With government help, Jews have found innumerable ways to deny whites, de facto, their First Amendment rights prior to the explicit, de jure criminalization of speech and association that has already taken place in other countries.

The designation “neo-Nazi” for Alex Linder is nonsensical because he is anti-National Socialist and anti-fascist. Essentially, he is a classical liberal.

The SPLC’s real beef is that Linder is fiercely anti-Jewish, even going so far as to advocate the extermination of the best of all people.

In its profile of skinhead leader Randal Lee Krager the Jewish organization coolly states that in 2007 “local anti-fascists” in Portland, Oregon told his neighbors about his family’s “racist beliefs” after Krager helped organize Hammerfest, a planned major skinhead concert, in the area—which “anti-fascists” ultimately thwarted.

The following year Krager moved with his wife and son to Florida after “anti-fascist activists” exposed the couple’s beliefs and associations to their neighbors and Krager’s employer. In other words, the Leftist thugs got him fired from his job and run out of town.

Such actions constitute serious civil rights violations if perpetrated by whites against any member of the most powerful ethnic group in America, Jews, or non-whites, all of whom are legally privileged. Yet the government contends that such violations are not prosecutable or actionable if committed by violent “private” racist groups against whites. The SPLC is extremely comfortable with this state of affairs.

This raises the question of the existence, behavior, and funding of the murky, transnational “antifa” domestic terrorist network and its relationship to governments (in some countries, such as Norway, it is publicly funded), official anti-white policies of states, and powerful Jewish organizations and Left-wing groups.

Anti-Muslim (3)

  1. Ex-Defense Department official Frank Gaffney, 59
  2. Pam Geller, 54 (Jewish)
  3. Orthodox Jewish attorney David Yerushalmi, 55

Mother of four Pam Geller—evidently Orthodox Jews aren’t the only members of the tribe reproducing beyond their replacement rate—is the co-head with American-born Levantine Robert Spencer of Stop Islamization of America.

She is criticized by the SPLC for taking “a strongly pro-Israel stance to the point of being sharply critical of Jewish liberals” (emphasis added). Of course, the SPLC has no qualms about being sharply critical of her.

The SPLC “links” Geller to Norwegian revolutionary Anders Breivik [9] because he cited her work (along with that of many, many others) in his Web-published manifesto, 2083: A European Declaration of Independence [10] (2011). (For use in your own writing and speaking, you should study the “links and ties” and other rhetorical techniques routinely employed by Jews highly-versed in the art of group defamation. The accusers, thick with their own fleas, can easily be skewered by the same methods.)

Geller and her ex-husband Michale Oshry were co-owners with a man named Christ Tsiropoulous of at least two New York City auto dealerships before they divorced in 2007. That year one of their salesmen was gunned down at a dealership they owned called Universal Auto World. According to the SPLC:

The investigation into the murder uncovered an alleged fraud ring. According to the New York Daily News, [dealership] employees enabled “underground characters,” including “known” drug dealers, to buy luxury cars using fake identities. Eleven people who worked for the dealership, including Tsiropoulous, were arrested, but Geller escaped the scandal unscathed. According to The New York Times, she received a $4 million divorce settlement, a portion of $1.8 million from the sale of the Long Island home and then a $5 million life insurance payment when Oshry died a few months after remarrying in 2008. The criminal case has not moved forward since the 2008 arrests.

David Yerushalmi, an Orthodox Jew associated with Pam Geller and Frank Gaffney, is disliked because he “rails against liberal Jews and the ‘progressive elites'” they influence. He has “repeatedly collaborated” with Robert Muise of the Thomas More Law Center, a “Christian Right” law firm. The two men recently formed the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), a self-described “Judeo-Christian public interest law firm.”

The inclusion on the list of three anti-Islamic Zionist extremists, two of whom are Jews, reflects an underlying fissure within the Jewish community. Over the centuries Jews have often enlisted the power of the king or the state to quell dissent within their own ranks.

The SPLC is gambling that continued Islamic immigration and social and legal preferences for Muslims will remain good for American Jews and bad for whites and Christians without seriously harming Israeli or domestic Jewish interests.

But, as Tomislav Sunic recently noted [11], “Since it can be legally and professionally harmful to lambaste non-White immigrants, let alone criticize out in the open European and American Jewry (e.g., for the support of multiculturalism), many Europeans and American nationalists hide their criticism of the multicultural system behind their criticism of Islam.”

This is what the SPLC fears. It wants to nip that tendency in the bud because it could get out of hand.

Neo-Confederate (2)

  1. The League of the South’s Michael Hill, 61
  2. Baptist pastor John Weaver, 67, of the Council of Conservative Citizens and Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Black Separatist (1)

  1. New Black Panther Party leader Malik Zulu Shabazz, 46

The only black on the list is included because he has “a long well-documented history of violently anti-Semitic remarks.”

He is also anti-white.

For a glimpse at the racial makeup of key faces behind the blank, police state monolith of the SPLC, I strongly recommend perusal of this web page [12].
