Anti-Immigrant Group CAPS Appoints Extremist As A Writing Fellow

The Santa Barbara-based anti-immigrant group Cal­i­for­ni­ans for Pop­u­la­tion Sta­bi­liza­tion (CAPS) now lists anti-immigrant extrem­ist and racist John Vin­son as a “senior writ­ing fel­low” on its web­site.  On Octo­ber 18, 2013, CAPS pub­lished a blog by Vin­son, who is the pres­i­dent of the extreme anti-immigrant group Amer­i­can Immi­gra­tion Con­trol Foun­da­tion (AICF). john-vinson

Vinson’s AICF report­edly received fund­ing from the Pio­neer Fund. The New York Times has described the Pio­neer Fund as hav­ing been estab­lished for the express pur­pose of pro­mot­ing research into eugen­ics and as hav­ing spon­sored projects based on the notion that blacks are genet­i­cally less intel­li­gent than whites. CAPS also received a grant from Pio­neer in 2002.

Vin­son has a his­tory of extrem­ist ties and state­ments.  He is a found­ing mem­ber of the League of the South (LOS), a racist neo-Confederate orga­ni­za­tion cur­rently run by racist Michael Hill. While with the LOS, Vin­son was cred­ited with draft­ing the “Kin­ism State­ment,” a set of guid­ing prin­ci­ples for a mod­ern white suprema­cist inter­pre­ta­tion of Chris­tian­ity called “Kin­ism.” While accept­ing many stan­dard Chris­t­ian beliefs and declar­ing Jesus as their Sav­ior, Kin­ists assert that whites have a “God-given right” to pre­serve their “own kind” and live sep­a­rately from other races.

In 1999, Vin­son spoke on an immi­gra­tion panel at a Coun­cil of Con­ser­v­a­tive Cit­i­zens (CofCC) con­fer­ence along­side other anti-immigrant extrem­ists, includ­ing Vir­ginia Aber­nethy of the white suprema­cist polit­i­cal party Amer­i­can Free­dom Party (AFP) and Glenn Spencer of the anti-Hispanic hate group Amer­i­can Bor­der Patrol.

In 1998, Vin­son was the guest-editor of one of the most noto­ri­ous issues of The Social Con­tract (TSC), an anti-immigrant jour­nal pub­lished by racist John Tan­ton, the founder of the modern-day anti-immigrant move­ment. The issue, titled “Euro­pho­bia: The Hos­til­ity Toward European-Descended Amer­i­cans,” fea­tured arti­cles from a num­ber of white suprema­cists, includ­ing Jared Tay­lor and Sam Fran­cis. In his edi­to­r­ial for the Euro­pho­bia issue, Vin­son wrote, “Mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism, which sub­or­di­nates suc­cess­ful Euro-American cul­ture to dys­func­tional Third World cul­tures, keeps gain­ing ground against sur­pris­ingly weak opposition.”

  • “Kin­ists assert that whites have a “God-given right” to pre­serve their “own kind” and live sep­a­rately from other races.”

    Like Jews have a G-d-given right to pre­serve their own kind and live sep­a­rately from other races?

    More des­per­ate attacks from the ADL

    • Bill Veris

      They don’t like peo­ple breath­ing, do they? They’d try to clas­sify that as “anti Semitic” I sup­pose too…

      When they keep say­ing things like “Anti Semitic” it makes me think they have a short vocab­u­lary. But I guess hate groups like the ADL are not very ele­gant with their speech. Just full of garbage slogans.

      Even Alex Jones has men­tioned on air they’ve watched him in the past even though he doesn’t talk about Jews! Proof even if you don’t talk about Jews the ADL are ready with their silly labels like “anti Semitic canard,” “con­spir­acy the­o­rists.” Yeah ADL, we’ve see­ing a sharp increase in anti Gen­tile (mainly Euro­pean of course) hos­til­ity in recently years. “Anti Gen­tile canards are on the rise again…” That’s how they like to word things! ha ha ha

      There needs to be an hon­est debate or dis­cus­sion with these whingy whiney peo­ple. Not peo­ple who use labels and appear “immune” from crit­i­cism. Don’t’ dish out if you can’t take back. I think Abra­ham FOX­man and co would know they would lose, so I guess that’s why they don’t do it.

    More lies

    • Bill Veris

      They love labels but they never want to sit down and talk to any­one. They love their whing­ing and whin­ing and moan.

  • Bill Veris

    ADL love their labels. Let’s start call­ing the ADL a hate group. One of the biggest in the world! They are all over the place… in Rus­sia and Israel appar­ently too! All those files they keep on peo­ple, orga­ni­za­tions and so forth. Appar­ently Abra­ham FOX­man gets 1 million/year!

    But yeah, ADL… a anti Euro­pean hate group.
