After Executive Action on Immigration, Extremists Lash Out

Extrem­ists in the United States responded to Pres­i­dent Obama’s announce­ment of exec­u­tive action on immi­gra­tion by attack­ing the Pres­i­dent, blam­ing Jews and call­ing for whites to become “con­scious” and dis­tance them­selves from the cur­rent polit­i­cal sys­tem and society.

The racist and anti-Semite Pat Buchanan penned an arti­cle pub­lished in Townhall.com in which he claimed the Pres­i­dent, “ensured the remak­ing of Amer­ica.” Buchanan wrote, “Now when the wives and chil­dren of the ille­gals arrive, and their extended fam­i­lies apply for and receive visas, and bring their wives and chil­dren, we will become the Third World coun­try of Obama’s dream, no more a West­ern nation.” Adrian Krieg, a direc­tor with the white suprema­cist Amer­i­can Free­dom Party (AFP) also attacked the Pres­i­dent in a col­umn on the AFP web­site, assert­ing, “This was the act of a despotic sociopath act­ing out­side law, and in a veiled attempt to paint the oppo­si­tion into a corner.”

In a piece on his web­site, anti-Semite David Duke blamed Jews for the President’s actions, declar­ing, “This strategy—of ensur­ing that America’s found­ing Euro­pean pop­u­la­tion be reduced to a minority—and then prefer­ably into total irrelevance—has been a major goal of the Jew­ish Suprema­cists since the days of Jacob Jav­its and his fel­low Zio-racists since the 1960s, when the first Jewish-promoted immi­gra­tion reforms were started.” Fel­low anti-Semite Andrew Anglin echoed Duke’s com­ments on his Daily Stormer web­site, assert­ing, “The rea­son here is that the Repub­li­cans aren’t actu­ally against it. The big busi­ness Jews who run the GOP are in agree­ment with the com­mie Jews who run the Demo­c­ra­tic Party: mass third world immi­gra­tion is a good thing.”

White nation­al­ist Richard Spencer called for a new white iden­tity in an arti­cle on the web­site of his group National Pol­icy Insti­tute (NPI). Spencer claimed the President’s actions could mark a “begin­ning of a move­ment of Iden­tity.” This iden­tity can flour­ish, Spencer wrote “even if half the chan­nels on cable are ‘en espan­iol [sic].’” Gre­gory Hunter, a con­trib­u­tor to the white suprema­cist online pub­li­ca­tion Counter-Currents, responded in a sim­i­lar vein to Spencer. Hunter argued, “It seems self-evident that European-Americans should turn on those who have betrayed them, renounce the failed Amer­i­can exper­i­ment, and secure their own destroy [sic] by any means nec­es­sary – seces­sion, rebel­lion, and the even­tual goal of the White Repub­lic.” Hunter went on to assert that “no progress will be made unless European-Americans become con­scious of them­selves as Euro­peans abroad.”

American Racist Group Will Hold Meeting in Hungary Despite Ban

Update — 10/06/14: On Octo­ber 3, Hun­gar­ian police arrested National Pol­icy Insti­tute (NPI) head Richard Spencer for not hav­ing iden­ti­fi­ca­tion papers with him at an infor­mal gath­er­ing of peo­ple who had planned to attend NPI’s con­fer­ence in Budapest. Jared Tay­lor, work­ing with oth­ers, held an NPI meet­ing at a restau­rant in Budapest where he and Tom Sunic spoke to about 75 peo­ple. Spencer is expected to be deported from Hun­gary today.


Richard Spencer
, the head of the National Pol­icy Insti­tute (NPI), a white suprema­cist think tank based in White­fish, Mon­tana, asserts that his group will still hold a meet­ing in Budapest on Octo­ber 3–5, despite the Hun­gar­ian government’s ban on the con­fer­ence. In addi­tion, the venue in Hun­gary where the con­fer­ence was to be held has report­edly can­celled its con­tract with NPI organizers.

Per­versely invok­ing the civil rights anthem, “We shall over­come,” Spencer declared to sup­port­ers in an email that NPI would per­se­vere and that peo­ple plan­ning to attend would still be able to meet and exchange ideas. Spencer usu­ally holds NPI con­fer­ences in Wash­ing­ton, DC where he reg­u­larly invites Euro­pean and Amer­i­can racists to share their ideas about white nation­al­ism in Europe and the U.S.

Spencer, 36, is the new face of white supremacy who over­sees a num­ber of projects in addi­tion to NPI. He cre­ated an online jour­nal Radix, which fea­tures the work of intel­lec­tual racists and runs Wash­ing­ton Sum­mit Pub­lish­ers, which pub­lishes racist tracts. Prior to openly embrac­ing white nation­al­ism in 2009, he worked at the Amer­i­can Spec­ta­tor, a main­stream con­ser­v­a­tive mag­a­zine. In 2010, he founded Alter­na­tive Right, a white suprema­cist online jour­nal, which cur­tailed oper­a­tions in Decem­ber 2013.

In a 2011 inter­view, Spencer said, “By 2009, I was much more will­ing to express hereti­cal views on race and egal­i­tar­i­an­ism, as well as write more forth­rightly on cul­ture.” Spencer has advo­cated for a white ethno-state in the U.S. In 2011, he became the head of NPI and his annual con­fer­ences have attracted dozens of attend­ing, includ­ing a num­ber of young people.

The con­fer­ence in Hun­gary was sched­uled to fea­ture a num­ber of other Amer­i­cans includ­ing Jared Tay­lor, head of the white suprema­cist jour­nal Amer­i­can Renais­sance and John Mor­gan, an Amer­i­can who heads Ark­tos Media, based in Budapest. Ark­tos, a co-sponsor of the NPI con­fer­ence, pub­lishes books that pro­mote the Iden­ti­tar­ian move­ment in Europe. Iden­ti­tar­ian groups are pro-white, anti-immigrant and stress racial/ethnic iden­tity. Tom Sunic, who is Croa­t­ian and a leader in Amer­i­can Free­dom Party (for­merly known as Amer­i­can Third Posi­tion), was also sched­uled to address the NPI gath­er­ing. The Amer­i­can Free­dom Party is a white suprema­cist polit­i­cal party that runs extrem­ist can­di­dates in the U.S. Other speak­ers included Mar­ton Gyongyosi, a leader in the ultra­na­tion­al­ist Hun­gar­ian party Job­bik, who has since report­edly bowed out of the NPI event and Alexan­der Dugin, a Russ­ian ultra­na­tion­al­ist ideologue.

The con­fer­ence would build fur­ther ties between Amer­i­can and Euro­pean racists and nation­al­ists and exploit ris­ing ultra­na­tion­al­ist sen­ti­ment in Hun­gary as evi­denced by Jobbik’s elec­toral gains in the April 2014 elections.

American Racists Embrace Gains in Europe by Far-Right Parties

Pat Buchanan

Fig­ures rang­ing from far-right pun­dit Patrick Buchanan to white suprema­cist leader Richard Spencer of the National Pol­icy Insti­tute are embrac­ing the gains made by far-right and extrem­ist par­ties in Europe dur­ing elec­tions to the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment in May.

The Amer­i­cans who are salut­ing the results of the elec­tions believe that the gains by the nation­al­ist and far-right par­ties indi­cate that Euro­peans have rejected increased immi­gra­tion and mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism in favor of a return to tra­di­tion­al­ist val­ues. Some also argue that Euro­peans are more inter­ested in the ardent nation­al­ism and patri­o­tism exhib­ited by Russ­ian leader Vladimir Putin than in inte­gra­tion and lib­eral West­ern values.

Buchanan, who pre­dicted the results of the elec­tions in Europe in a May 23 col­umn, argued that the rise of far-right par­ties means that Euro­peans want to pre­serve their “sep­a­rate and unique eth­nic and cul­tural iden­tity.” Buchanan fur­ther asserted that the gains made by far-right par­ties sig­nal a return to “tra­di­tion­al­ism and cul­tural con­ser­vatism, rev­er­ence for the reli­gious and cul­tural his­tory and her­itage of the nation and its indige­nous peo­ple.” Buchanan has hoped for the same in the U.S. In numer­ous books and columns, he has argued that Amer­ica is being destroyed by “Third World” immi­grants and that the coun­try needs to main­tain its white Euro­pean heritage.

In his com­ments on the Euro­pean elec­tions, Matt Par­rott, a founder of the Tra­di­tion­al­ist Youth Net­work, agreed with Buchanan and asserted that Euro­peans are more inter­ested in Putin’s nation­al­ism than in America’s lib­er­al­ism. He laments that white suprema­cists in Amer­ica will be “be forced to patiently wait on the side­lines” while tra­di­tion­al­ist ideals and openly nation­al­ist politi­cians come to the fore­front in the rest of the world. He sug­gests that America’s extreme right learn from the advances made by their coun­ter­parts in Europe.

In a pod­cast, Richard Spencer, the head of the white suprema­cist National Pol­icy Insti­tute, spoke with Roman Bernard of France about how anti-EU sen­ti­ment had become a “bogey­man” for far-right par­ties in Europe. They believe that anti-EU sen­ti­ment is “neg­a­tive pol­i­tics” and that Euro­peans should be focus­ing on cre­at­ing “white con­scious­ness.” White suprema­cists on both sides of the Atlantic hope that whites in Europe and Amer­ica will become “racially aware” and pro­mote their own eth­nic interests.

Anti-Semite David Duke put a dif­fer­ent spin on the Euro­pean elec­tions, which reflects his vir­u­lent anti-Jewish views. Duke asserted that Euro­pean vot­ers had rejected two ide­olo­gies that Jews allegedly force on them—immigration and globalization.

Amer­i­can white suprema­cist activists would like to see extreme-right par­ties and ide­olo­gies become more appeal­ing to the main­stream in Amer­ica. They see Europe as a model for mak­ing that hap­pen but acknowl­edge most Amer­i­cans are not inclined to accept “white nationalism.”
