Extremist Support of Donald Trump

Updated March 2, 2016

White suprema­cists have been enthu­si­as­tic sup­port­ers of Don­ald Trump since he announced his can­di­dacy for pres­i­dent in June 2015 with big­oted remarks about Mex­i­can immi­grants. Sub­se­quent remarks from Trump about ban­ning Mus­lim immi­gra­tion to the U.S served to solid­ify that sup­port. White suprema­cists believe that Trump is voic­ing their own xeno­pho­bic and big­oted views toward immi­grants and non-whites.

David Duke, a racist and anti-Semite and the most noto­ri­ous bigot in Amer­ica, urged his sup­port­ers to back Trump. On his radio show in Feb­ru­ary, Duke said that “vot­ing against Trump is really trea­son to your her­itage.” Duke even told his lis­ten­ers to vol­un­teer for Trump dur­ing the elec­tion. He added that he hoped that Trump “does every­thing we hope he will do.”

One of Trump’s biggest sup­port­ers is neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin who runs the Daily Stormer web­site. The site is filled with vir­u­lently racist and anti-Semitic arti­cles. In July 2015, Anglin wrote an arti­cle that praised Trump for his com­ments on Mex­i­cans. Anglin asserted, “The Trump Train has left the sta­tion and is run­ning non-stop to total vic­tory over the bar­bar­ian hordes of Mex­ico. Because there is one issue which mat­ters beyond all other issues and that is the inva­sion of White coun­tries by non-whites.”Anglin adds that “the amount of good” that Trump has done “is immea­sur­able.” Anglin now refers to Trump as “our glo­ri­ous leader,” and extols Trump at every turn.

White suprema­cist William John­son, head of the Amer­i­can Free­dom Party does more than talk about sup­port­ing Trump. He has actu­ally cre­ated the Amer­i­can National Super PAC, which has paid for a series of robo­calls sup­port­ing Trump for pres­i­dent. The calls have gone out num­ber of states, includ­ing Iowa and New Hamp­shire. New robo­calls are sched­uled for Ver­mont and Min­nesota which tell vot­ers not to “vote for a Cuban.” The calls go on to say that the “white race is dying out in Amer­ica and Europe because we are afraid to be called ‘racist.’” John­son has long courted the more hard­core mem­bers of the white suprema­cist move­ment, includ­ing racist skinheads.

Jared Tay­lor, a white suprema­cist who runs the Amer­i­can Renais­sance web­site is another enthu­si­as­tic sup­porter of Trump. The Amer­i­can Renais­sance site fea­tures arti­cles that pur­port to demon­strate the intel­lec­tual and cul­tural supe­ri­or­ity of whites. Tay­lor has writ­ten a num­ber of arti­cles endors­ing Trump. His voice also appeared on the Amer­i­can National Super PAC robo­calls in Iowa, where he told vot­ers that “we don’t need Mus­lims. We need smart, well-educated white peo­ple who will assim­i­late to our culture.”

Richard Spencer, a white suprema­cist who runs a tiny think tank called the National Pol­icy Insti­tute has posted videos and arti­cles endors­ing Trump for pres­i­dent. Spencer is a sym­bolic of the new white supremacy whereby young racists would rather don suits and ties than a Klan robe to pro­mote white nation­al­ism. In an inter­view, Spencer said that Trump “seems to gen­uinely care about the his­toric Amer­i­can nation that is white people.”

Kevin Mac­Don­ald, a noto­ri­ous anti-Semite and retired pro­fes­sor, has also backed Trump. He has lauded Trump’s com­ments about ban­ning Mus­lim immi­gra­tion and says that elect­ing Trump “may be the last chance for Whites to elect a pres­i­dent who rep­re­sents their inter­ests.” Mac­Don­ald actu­ally tried to raise money for his anti-Semitic pub­li­ca­tion, The Occi­den­tal Quar­terly, by tout­ing Trump’s can­di­dacy. He wrote, “Don­ald Trump’s can­di­dacy is a game changer and has a very real pos­si­bil­ity of suc­cess. In this new cli­mate, mil­lions of White peo­ple are real­iz­ing that it’s entirely legit­i­mate to oppose immi­gra­tion and mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism. It’s okay to oppose the idea that every last human has the moral right to immi­grate to a West­ern coun­try, or that all peo­ples and cul­tures are equally accept­able as immigrants.”

Matthew Heim­bach, a racist and anti-Semite who co-founded the Tra­di­tion­al­ist Youth Net­work, a white suprema­cist group, has expressed sup­port for Trump. He wrote, “The march to vic­tory will not be won by Don­ald Trump in 2016, but this could be the step­ping stone we need to then rad­i­cal­ize mil­lions of White work­ing and mid­dle class fam­i­lies to the call to truly begin a strug­gle for Faith, fam­ily and folk. For this rea­son alone I will cam­paign for Don­ald Trump because as the say­ing goes ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend’ and that is dou­bly true if that per­son is viewed as an enemy by the Inter­na­tional Jew.”

It has also been reported that the Knights Party, a Klan group in Arkansas, uses Trump and his views as a talk­ing point when ques­tion­ing poten­tial recruits. In an arti­cle in Politico, Rachel Pen­der­graft, a spokesper­son for the group, said that Trump, “has offered KKK mem­bers a prime oppor­tu­nity to feel out poten­tial recruits on their racial attitudes.”

In media inter­views, Don Black, who runs Storm­front, the largest white suprema­cist Inter­net forum in the coun­try, has said that Trump has helped drive traf­fic to his site. In inter­views in Politico and Vice, Black said that Trump had been a boon to the white suprema­cist cause.

Lee Rogers, who runs the neo-Nazi web­site Infos­tormer, refers to Trump as “our leader.” Like Andrew Anglin, Rogers posts viciously racist and anti-Semitic arti­cles on his site and exalts Trump.

Hunter Wal­lace, aka Brad Grif­fin, a white suprema­cist who pro­motes South­ern nation­al­ism offi­cially endorsed Trump for pres­i­dent on his web­site, Occi­den­tal Dissent.

James Edwards, a white suprema­cist who runs the Polit­i­cal Cesspool web­site and radio show, wrote a blog about attend­ing a Trump rally in Mem­phis on  Feb­ru­ary 28 as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the press.  Edwards declared that he is vot­ing for Trump and encour­aged his own sup­port­ers to do the same. Edwards added, “With Trump, Amer­ica has a chance to regain her identity.”

As a 501(c)3 non-profit orga­ni­za­tion, the Anti-Defamation League does not sup­port or oppose can­di­dates for polit­i­cal office.

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

frosty-wooldridge

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.

Matthew Heimbach Embracing Hard-Core White Supremacy

heimbach-IKA-october-2013

Heim­bach, stand­ing on far right in T-shirt and jeans, gives salute at hard-core white suprema­cist event.

Matthew Heim­bach, head of the Tra­di­tion­al­ist Youth Net­work (TYN), and for­mer founder of the white stu­dent union at Tow­son Uni­ver­sity, attended an event last month spon­sored by neo-Nazis, racist skin­heads and Klan groups in Kentucky.

The Aryan Ter­ror Brigade (ATB), a small, racist skin­head group, the neo-Nazi National Social­ist Move­ment, the Knights of the Nordic Order, and the Impe­r­ial Klans of Amer­ica (IKA), whose head­quar­ters are in Ken­tucky, hosted the event.  In a pic­ture from the gath­er­ing, Heim­bach is seen with a group of white suprema­cists salut­ing for the cam­era. Some of these groups, par­tic­u­larly the ATB, have a his­tory of violence.

Although Heim­bach once claimed that his views were merely con­ser­v­a­tive, he seems to be  increas­ingly embrac­ing hard-core white supremacy. In addi­tion to the Sep­tem­ber event, Heim­bach attended a white suprema­cist gath­er­ing in August 2013 hosted by Don Black, who runs the racist Inter­net forum Storm­front. At the event, he also met with David Duke, for­mer Klan leader and vir­u­lent anti-Semite. In an arti­cle on the TYN blog, Heim­bach called both men his heroes.

In his posts for the TYN, Heim­bach has becom­ing increas­ingly anti-Semitic.  In an inter­view on Duke’s radio show in August 3013, he talked about “Jew­ish suprema­cists who are push­ing for our destruc­tion.” At the white suprema­cist Amer­i­can Free­dom Party con­fer­ence in July 2013, Heim­bach asserted, “We know the Jew­ish influ­ence, that cap­i­tal­ists who want to extort us to make money, and the Com­mu­nists who want to destroy all eth­nic reli­gious and racial tides are united together seek­ing our total destruction.”
