FAIR Advisory Board Member Does Radio Interview on Anti-Semitic Website

Frosty Wooldrige

On Tuesday, March 25, Frosty Wooldridge, an anti-immigrant activist and advisory board member for the extreme anti-immigrant group Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), appeared on “The Jeff Rense Program,” a conspiracy-oriented Internet radio show. Rense broadcasts his show on his notoriously anti-Semitic website, which promotes a wide variety of conspiracy theories, from UFO reports to supposed environmental threats to alleged Jewish control of the world.

The March appearance is Wooldridge’s latest on the show, with Rense welcoming him back and describing him as a “friend” and “great patriot.” Though Rense and Wooldridge were scheduled to speak about the issue of growing greenhouse gasses, both men also voiced anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric.

Early in the program Rense blamed immigration for “the degradation of the identity of the American people.” Wooldridge claimed Muslims are “destroying” London and called Belgium “Belgistan.” He also predicted “at some point Detroit is going to go Shariah Law” and said Muslims are “literally taking over” the state of Michigan. Wooldridge also asserted, “There are twenty-two known jihad training camps in America.”

Rense’s website contains a large archive with hundreds of articles penned by Wooldridge. The website also contains archives for the radio shows of anti-Semite David Duke and extremist Don Black, the founder of Stormfront, the most popular Internet forum for anti-Semites, neo-Nazis, and other white supremacists. The Rense website also links to the writings of a number of other anti-Semites such as Ted Pike, founder of the National Prayer Network and Holocaust denier Ernst Zundel.

Wooldridge, who is also a senior writing fellow for the Santa Barbara-based anti-immigrant group Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS), is the latest anti-immigrant figure to appear on  “The Jeff Rense Program.” According to the show’s, archives, Roy Beck, the founder of the anti-immigrant group NumbersUSA and Glenn Spencer, founder of the anti-Hispanic hate group Amer­i­can Bor­der Patrol also appeared on the show in the past.

These are not the only examples of anti-immigrant activists appearing on extremist venues. In December 2013, David North,  a fellow with the anti-immigrant group Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) appeared on “The Realist Report,” an Internet radio show hosted by the virulent anti-Semite and Holocaust denier, John Friend.
