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.

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.”

Speakers at DC “March for Jobs” Rally Have Bashed Immigrants and Muslims

dc-march-for-jobs1On July 15, 2013, the Black American Leadership Alliance (BALA), an African American “front group” created by the anti-immigrant movement in the United States, will host a protest against immigration reform in Washington, D.C.

The “DC March for Jobs” will feature a number of speakers from BALA who claim to speak on behalf of the African-American community when in fact they are long-time anti-immigrant activists speaking on behalf of the anti-immigrant movement. A number of politicians and other activists, many of whom have a history of bigoted statements, are also slated to address the crowd:

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) – Steve King is the leader of the anti-immigration reform group in the House of Representatives and has a long history of making bigoted statements against immigrants. King has characterized immigrants – both documented and undocumented – as criminals and disease-carriers. He has spoken alongside leaders of border vigilante groups and advocated for a border “wall” topped with electrified wire to stop what he has called a “slow motion Holocaust” of undocumented immigration into the United States. In an address to the House King asserted that undocumented immigration is “a slow-rolling, slow-motion terrorist attack on the United States.”

Michael CutlerCutler is a former INS (now ICE) agent who is a senior fellow at the Santa Barbara-based anti-immigrant organization Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) and a former fellow at the anti-immigrant group Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). In a July 3, 2013 op-ed in the Washington Times, Cutler claimed that “a significant percentage of the illegal-alien population includes those who know they could not be lawfully admitted via the inspections process that is designed to prevent the entry of aliens who have dangerous communicable diseases, severe mental illness, serious criminal histories, are fugitives from justice in other countries or have committed war crimes or human rights violations, or are spies or terrorists.”

Allen WestWest is a former Representative from the state of Florida who failed to win reelection in 2012. West is closely tied to people in the anti-Muslim movement, publishing blogs on sites such as Pamela Geller’s Atlas Shrugs and frequently presenting at events such as ACT! for America’s 2013 national conference.  In a March 8, 2010 speech, West demonized Islam, stating, Islam is a totalitarian theocratic political ideology, it is not a religion. It has not been a religion since 622 AD, and we need to have individuals that stand up and say that.”

Ken Crow – Crow is an Iowa resident and founder of Tea Party Community. In an undated post on the online forum Hub Pages, Crow wrote, “The only place in American society for MULTICULTURALISM is with our Native Americans. They were here first and need to be treated with a very high level of respect. We should not be altering America for anyone else. But we are. We even have the Islamic faithful building schools here and yes they are teaching their children to hate America. They are teaching and preaching hatred of America on American soil.” Crow has published numerous articles on the virulently anti-Muslim site The United West.
