White Supremacist Student Leader Creates Web site for his “White Student Union”

Update 8/2/13: A new White Stu­dent Union has formed at Geor­gia State Uni­ver­sity by fresh­man Patrick Sharp.

Matthew Heim­bach, a Tow­son Uni­ver­sity stu­dent who is try­ing to start a “White Stu­dent Union” on cam­pus, cre­ated a web­site for the union that fur­ther reveals his white suprema­cist beliefs.

On the newly cre­ated site, Heim­bach pro­vides links to what he describes are “pro-white” web­sites.   Almost all of the sites listed, how­ever, are actu­ally openly white suprema­cist, such as those for the Council of Con­ser­v­a­tive Cit­i­zens (CCC), the Amer­i­can Third Posi­tion and Amer­i­can Renais­sance.

The CCC is a direct descen­dant of the white suprema­cist White Cit­i­zens Coun­cils that fought inte­gra­tion in the 1950s and 60s. Amer­i­can Third Posi­tion is a whites-only polit­i­cal party whose mis­sion is “to rep­re­sent the inter­ests of White Amer­i­cans.” Amer­i­can Renais­sance is the racist web­site run by white suprema­cist Jared Tay­lor, who pub­lishes a monthly jour­nal by the same title and hosts an annual con­fer­ence that brings together some of the lead­ing white suprema­cists in the United States.

Heim­bach recently announced that Tay­lor will speak at Tow­son on Octo­ber 2, 2012.

Heim­bach also lists “rec­om­mended read­ings” that include books authored by a vari­ety of well-known white suprema­cists and racists, such as Fran­cis Parker Yockey’s “Imperium,” con­sid­ered one of the essen­tial works of mod­ern white supremacy. One book rec­om­mended by Heim­bach is the novel “Camp of the Saints” by French­man Jean Ras­pail. This racist novel por­trays a France being invaded by non-whites who are depicted as disease-carrying and sex­u­ally aggres­sive. The list also fea­tures two books authored by the late white suprema­cist Sam Fran­cis: “Essen­tial Writ­ings on Race” and “Race and the Amer­i­can Prospect.” In the lat­ter book, Fran­cis bemoans the “absence of racial con­scious­ness among whites.”

Prior to cre­at­ing the Web site, the Tow­son stu­dent news­pa­per, The Tow­erlight, pub­lished a let­ter by Heim­bach advo­cat­ing for a white stu­dent union.   Fly­ers were also placed all over the Tow­son cam­pus that pro­claimed: “love your race, sup­port a white stu­dent union.”

Heim­bach is a for­mer leader of the Youth for West­ern Civ­i­liza­tion chap­ter at Tow­son, a group with racist ties whose motto is “defend­ing the West on campus.”

Heim­bach still needs the approval of the Uni­ver­sity to make the White Stu­dent Union an officially-sanctioned uni­ver­sity group.  His Web site sug­gests that he will set­tle for an unsanc­tioned group if need be.  Either way, he has made clear his inten­tion to impose his white suprema­cist views on Tow­son stu­dents, staff, and faculty.

White Supremacist Jared Taylor Speaks to 700 Nationalists in France

Jared Tay­lor speaks to white nation­al­ists in France

Jared Tay­lor, who heads Amer­i­can Renais­sance, a Virginia-based online white suprema­cist jour­nal, spoke to about 700 white nation­al­ists in France on March 10, 2012, about pre­serv­ing  French iden­tity and com­bat­ing third world immi­gra­tion to that coun­try. Accord­ing to Tay­lor, the meet­ing was spon­sored by the French nation­al­ist group Nation­al­ity, Iden­tity, Cit­i­zen­ship (NCI) to “oppose cur­rent pro­pos­als to let for­eign­ers from non-European coun­tries vote in local elec­tions.” 

The con­fer­ence included politi­cians, authors, and aca­d­e­mics. The themes touched upon by speak­ers at the con­fer­ence included many of the same issues that white suprema­cists and racists in the United States focus on today—the preser­va­tion of white, Euro­pean iden­tity in the face of a grow­ing mul­ti­cul­tural soci­ety. Some of the speak­ers at the con­fer­ence in France also attacked Islam as a threat to French society.
Tay­lor told those gath­ered at the con­fer­ence that their fight to pre­serve French iden­tity was sig­nif­i­cant for peo­ple of white Euro­pean descent all over the world. He warned his French coun­ter­parts to “not make the ter­ri­ble mis­takes that we have made in Amer­ica.” Tay­lor added, “Avoid at all costs the cult of diversity.”
In addi­tion to Tay­lor, Filip DeWin­ter, the head of the racist and xeno­pho­bic Bel­gian nation­al­ist group Vlaams Belang, spoke about the fight against mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism.  Accord­ing to Tay­lor, DeWin­ter asserted that “mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism attacks our resis­tance against assaults on our iden­tity, our civ­i­liza­tion, our cul­ture, and our exis­tence as a people.”
In 2007, DeWin­ter vis­ited the United States and met with Pat Buchanan and other racists. In 2011, he spoke at a meet­ing in the United States hosted by Amer­i­can Renaissance.

Panelists at CPAC Attack Multiculturalism

The 2012 Con­ser­v­a­tive Polit­i­cal Action Con­fer­ence (CPAC) fea­tured a panel on mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism on Feb­ru­ary 9, which was hosted by Pro­Eng­lish, an orga­ni­za­tion whose mis­sion is to make Eng­lish the offi­cial lan­guage of the United States. 

John Tan­ton, who has expressed racist views and is the archi­tect of the mod­ern anti-immigrant move­ment, founded Pro­Eng­lish and is still on the organization’s board. Robert Van­der­voort, the head of Pro­Eng­lish, hosted the panel.
One of the main speak­ers on the panel was Peter Brimelow, who runs the racist Web site VDARE that fea­tures the works of white suprema­cists, anti-Semites and anti-immigrant activists. Brimelow asserted that mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism and bilin­gual­ism were exam­ples of “mod­ern polit­i­cal dis­eases.” He mostly focused on Canada as an exam­ple of how bilin­gual­ism has destroyed a soci­ety but claimed that Amer­ica could fol­low the same exam­ple if bilin­gual­ism was insti­tu­tion­al­ized in the United States.

Brimelow alleged that kids can­not get a job at MacDonald’s because they can’t speak Span­ish – a trend he described as a “fero­cious attack on liv­ing stan­dards of the Amer­i­can work­ing class…just as immi­gra­tion pol­icy in gen­eral is.” Later, in the Q&A sec­tion, Brimelow said that Democ­rats had given up on “the white work­ing class,” and that this was “treason.”
One of Brimelow’s co-panelists was John Der­byshire, a National Review con­trib­u­tor who strad­dles the line between the main­stream and the extrem­ist worlds. He has shared the stage with racist speak­ers at the H.L Mencken Club, a far-right orga­ni­za­tion. Der­byshire also agreed to speak at the 2010 white suprema­cist Amer­i­can Renais­sance con­fer­ence, which was later can­celled. At CPAC, Der­byshire warned that “racism will reemerge in a new and more vir­u­lent form” because the ten­sion between what the white elite is sup­posed to think and what it actu­ally thinks about race will reach a break­ing point of “cog­ni­tive dissonance.”
A sur­prise guest at the panel was Con­gress­man Steve King (R-IA), who has made a num­ber of vir­u­lently anti-immigrant state­ments over the years. King is try­ing to pass a bill which will make Eng­lish the offi­cial lan­guage of the United States.
