CAPS Provides Platform for Anti-Immigrant Extremists

Cal­i­for­ni­ans for Pop­u­la­tion Sta­bi­liza­tion (CAPS), a Santa Barbara-based anti-immigrant orga­ni­za­tion, claims that its mis­sion is to sta­bi­lize the pop­u­la­tion of Cal­i­for­nia and pre­serve the envi­ron­ment but it actu­ally pro­vides a plat­form for a num­ber of anti-immigrant extrem­ists. CAPS senior writ­ing fel­lows Joe Guz­zardi and John Vin­son have ties to racist groups. In addi­tion, CAPS fea­tures columns from anti-immigrant extrem­ist Frosty Wooldridge, also a CAPS senior writ­ing fel­low, as well as anti-immigrant activist D. A. King.

John Vinson

John Vin­son

Joe Guz­zardi, who is also CAPS’s national media direc­tor, was an edi­tor and writer at the racist, anti-immigrant web­site VDARE until 2010. In 2012, he pre­sented at The Social Con­tract Press (TSCP) Writ­ers Work­shop, which often fea­tures racist speak­ers. White suprema­cist Wayne Lut­ton runs the Writer’s Work­shop and also edits TSCP’s jour­nal, The Social Con­tract. Racist John Tan­ton, the archi­tect of the mod­ern anti-immigrant move­ment, is the founder of TSCP.

John Vin­son is the pres­i­dent of the extreme anti-immigrant group Amer­i­can Immi­gra­tion Con­trol Foun­da­tion (AICF). He is also a found­ing mem­ber of the League of the South (LOS), a white South­ern nation­al­ist group.. Vin­son has been cred­ited with draft­ing the “Kin­ism State­ment,” a set of guid­ing prin­ci­ples for a mod­ern white suprema­cist inter­pre­ta­tion of Chris­tian­ity called “Kin­ism,” which pro­motes the idea that whites should live sep­a­rately from other races. In addi­tion, in 1999, Vin­son spoke at a meet­ing of the white suprema­cist Coun­cil of Con­ser­v­a­tive Cit­i­zens, along with other anti-immigrant extremists.

Frosty Wooldridge, is well-known for his extreme state­ments about immi­grants. His cur­rent focus is on Mus­lim immi­gra­tion. He has writ­ten a multi-part series called “Impreg­nat­ing Amer­ica with Mus­lims,” in the right-wing online pub­li­ca­tion NewsWith­Views from Decem­ber 2014 through this month. In the series, Wooldridge demo­nizes Mus­lims and equates all Mus­lims with ter­ror­ists. In Decem­ber 2014, he wrote, “In order to be faith­ful to the Islamic reli­gion, Mus­lims ulti­mately must degrade and kill all other peo­ple who fol­low any other reli­gions.” Wooldridge has also given inter­views over the last year to anti-Semitic venues, includ­ing the Amer­i­can Free Press, a conspiracy-oriented news­pa­per and “The Jeff Rense Pro­gram,” a conspiracy-oriented Inter­net radio show.

D.A King, the founder of the Georgia-based anti-immigrant group Dus­tan Inman Soci­ety, has a his­tory of mak­ing big­oted state­ments about immi­grants and of work­ing with the more extreme ele­ments of the anti-immigrant move­ment. For a num­ber of years, King wrote arti­cles for VDARE. In 2007, he report­edly claimed that undoc­u­mented immi­grants are “not here to mow your lawn—they’re here to blow up your build­ings and kill your chil­dren, and you and me.” This past sum­mer, in response to the chil­dren seek­ing refuge in the U.S after flee­ing from vio­lence in Cen­tral Amer­ica, he asserted that the chil­dren were “swarm­ing the bor­der and bring­ing dis­ease.” In addi­tion, King has been a con­trib­u­tor to The Social Con­tract.

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.

Jason Richwine Has Ties To More Extreme Elements of Anti-Immigrant Movement

Update: As of May 10, 2013, Jason Rich­wine has resigned from his posi­tion as senior pol­icy ana­lyst at the Her­itage Foundation.

Jason Rich­wine, a co-author of a major report on the alleged costs of immi­gra­tion reform pub­lished this week by the Her­itage Foun­da­tion, a con­ser­v­a­tive think-tank, has ties to the more extreme ele­ments of the anti-immigrant move­ment. Richwine’s pre­vi­ous writ­ings and state­ments also pro­mote stereo­types about Hispanics.jason-richwine

Rich­wine is a reg­u­lar attendee of the annual Writ­ers Work­shop event orga­nized by The Social Con­tract Press (TSCP). TSCP is a pub­lish­ing house founded by the racist John Tan­ton, the archi­tect of the modern-day anti-immigrant movement.

This annual work­shop often fea­tures racist speak­ers, includ­ing Peter Brimelow, the founder of the anti-immigrant web­site VDARE, and Wayne Lut­ton, edi­tor of The Social Con­tract (TSC), a jour­nal pub­lished by TSCP.  Rich­wine spoke at the Writ­ers Work­shop in 2010 and 2012. At the 2010 con­fer­ence he claimed to be an attendee “for a few years” and iden­ti­fied him­self as “a restric­tion­ist.” At the same event, Rich­wine par­tic­i­pated in a debate with con­ser­v­a­tive author Ron Unz on the issue of white ver­sus His­panic crime rates. Rich­wine argued that the rate of crimes com­mit­ted by His­pan­ics is much higher than that of whites.

In 2012, the same year Peter Brimelow addressed the event, Rich­wine talked about cul­tural dif­fer­ences between the Euro­pean immi­grants who came to the U.S. before the 1965 Immi­gra­tion Act and the His­panic immi­grants who came to this coun­try post-1965. He argued that when we talk about immi­gra­tion “cul­ture is the over­rid­ing con­cern.” Later in his speech, Rich­wine spoke about the dif­fer­ences in appear­ances between His­pan­ics and whites, claim­ing “His­panic immi­grants usu­ally look dis­tinctly non-white.” He said he did not “cel­e­brate the fact that this should mat­ter,” but added that “the real­ity is that sub­con­sciously humans are a tribal species.”

He con­cluded his argu­ment by claim­ing, “To me this is some­thing that’s just a real­ity of human nature, that some groups of peo­ple are more cul­tur­ally com­pat­i­ble than other groups of peo­ple is a real­ity of the human condition.”

In 2009, Steve Sailer, a long-time VDARE author with a his­tory of mak­ing racist state­ments, high­lighted an arti­cle by Rich­wine dis­cussing the dif­fer­ences in IQ between Indian Amer­i­cans, white Amer­i­cans and Ashke­nazi Jews. This not the first time Rich­wine has dis­cussed IQ dif­fer­ences. Accord­ing to a May 8, 2013 arti­cle in the Wash­ing­ton Post, Rich­wine has argued against allow­ing immi­grants with lower IQs into the country.
