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.

Richard Spencer

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.”

Anti-Immigrant Think Tank Appoints Bay Buchanan To Board

bay buchananThe Cen­ter for Immi­gra­tion Stud­ies (CIS), an anti-immigrant think tank founded by racist John Tan­ton, recently appointed Bay Buchanan, an anti-immigrant fig­ure with ties to extrem­ists, to its board of directors.

Buchanan is the pres­i­dent of The Amer­i­can Cause, a group founded by her brother, Pat Buchanan, a racist and anti-Semite. Though the orga­ni­za­tion is cur­rently dor­mant, it hosted a num­ber of anti-immigrant gath­er­ings in the past fea­tur­ing racist speakers.

For exam­ple, in Jan­u­ary 2009 the orga­ni­za­tion held an event when it released a report on the impact of can­di­dates’ views on immi­gra­tion dur­ing the 2008 elec­tion. Pan­elists included Bay Buchanan, Peter Brimelow, a white suprema­cist and founder of the racist anti-immigrant web­site VDARE, and Mar­cus Epstein, founder of the now-defunct far-right Robert Taft Club. The Taft Club often invited racist speak­ers to address its gath­er­ings, includ­ing white suprema­cist Jared Tay­lor, founder of The New Cen­tury Foun­da­tion, a self –styled think tank known pri­mar­ily for Amer­i­can Renais­sance , a white suprema­cist jour­nal and com­pan­ion website.

After Mar­cus Epstein was arrested and pleaded guilty to sim­ple assault for attack­ing an African Amer­i­can woman in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., Buchanan defended him in a col­umn pub­lished by VDARE titled “The Inter­net Lynch­ing of Mar­cus Epstein.” Buchanan also con­tributed an arti­cle to The Social Con­tract (TSC) an anti-immigrant jour­nal edited by white suprema­cist Wayne Lut­ton. At the 2011 Con­ser­v­a­tive Polit­i­cal Action Con­fer­ence (CPAC), Buchanan spoke on a panel spon­sored by the now-defunct racist stu­dent group Youth for West­ern Civ­i­liza­tion (YWC) titled “Will Immi­gra­tion Kill the GOP?”  Kevin DeAnna, the founder of YWC, was also on the panel. In 2005, Buchanan was a guest on the racist radio pro­gram The Polit­i­cal Cesspool, hosted by white suprema­cist James Edwards.

Buchanan also served as chair for her brother’s three pres­i­den­tial cam­paigns and in 2008, was a senior advi­sor to for­mer Col­orado con­gress­man Tom Tan­credo, who is known for his anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric.  Buchanan also ran the now-defunct Team Amer­ica Polit­i­cal Action Com­mit­tee (PAC) founded by Tancredo.
