White Supremacists View Donald Trump as Champion of Disaffected Whites

Don­ald Trump’s big­oted remarks about Mex­i­can immi­grants, his sub­se­quent jump in the polls and his abil­ity to attract thou­sands of peo­ple to a cam­paign event in Ari­zona caught the atten­tion of white suprema­cists. Eager to exploit the sit­u­a­tion, some white suprema­cists are hail­ing Trump as a cham­pion of dis­af­fected whites who are angry about non-white immi­gra­tion and cul­tural changes.

On July 13, neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin wrote an arti­cle on The Daily Stormer, the vir­u­lently racist and anti-Semitic site he runs, which 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.”

Writ­ing also on July 13, Peter Brimelow, who runs the racist, anti-immigrant site VDare, attacked “cul­tural Marx­ists,” often a code word for Jews, for rebuk­ing Trump’s remarks and “shut­ting down” the immi­gra­tion debate. Brimelow com­pares the reac­tion to Trump to the neg­a­tive reac­tion to the Con­fed­er­ate flag. Brimelow then implies that the main­stream media “elite” that has rejected Trump’s views is mostly made up of Jews in New York.

Richard Spencer, the head of the National Pol­icy Insti­tute, a white suprema­cist think tank, posted pic­tures of Trump’s cam­paign stop in Ari­zona on July 12, in the online racist jour­nal Radix under the title, “Trump Against the World.” Spencer claimed that Radix peo­ple were at the event. In the arti­cle, he also made an appar­ently sar­cas­tic com­ment about the “diver­sity” of the largely white crowd.

On July 10, non The Alter­na­tive Right, a white suprema­cist web­site, an uniden­ti­fied writer com­pared Trump to a “honey bad­ger” that has ram­paged through the Repub­li­can pri­mary field. The per­son writes, “Even if they could find some way of stop­ping Trump, the man has already left his mark on the 2016 Pres­i­den­tial Race by tap­ping into the ris­ing eth­no­cen­tric tide of Amer­i­can pol­i­tics, some­thing that is hardly likely to dis­si­pate when the lib­eral left is engaged in a mas­sive cul­ture war against White identity.”

Kevin Mac­Don­ald, a white suprema­cist and anti-Semite, wrote an arti­cle about Trump’s can­di­dacy in his online pub­li­ca­tion Occi­den­tal Observer on July 10. Mac­Don­ald claims that “Trump’s state­ments on the crim­i­nal ten­den­cies and gen­er­ally low func­tion­ing of Mex­i­can and Cen­tral Amer­i­can immi­grants have struck a chord with White America.”

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 Activist Provides Substantial Input For Georgia Bill

Accord­ing to a news­pa­per report, long­time anti-immigrant activist D.A. King pro­vided “sub­stan­tial input” for an anti-immigrant bill pre-filed in the Geor­gia Sen­ate for 2015. The bill seeks to block peo­ple who have received work per­mits and deferred depor­ta­tion through the fed­eral deferred action pro­gram from receiv­ing driver’s licenses in the state.d-a-king

King is the founder of the Marietta-based anti-immigrant group Dustin Inman Soci­ety (DIS) and has a his­tory of mak­ing big­oted state­ments and work­ing with the more extreme ele­ments of the anti-immigrant movement.

In April 2007, for exam­ple, when speak­ing at a New­ton County, Geor­gia Repub­li­can Party meet­ing, Mr. King 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.”  Mr. King has also asserted that the United States is “being invaded and col­o­nized” by a “Mex­i­can mob that brings with it a cul­ture of law­less­ness and chaos.” Ear­lier this year, in response to chil­dren flee­ing vio­lence from Cen­tral Amer­ica and seek­ing refuge in the United States, King asserted that the chil­dren are “swarm­ing the bor­der and bring­ing disease.”

For a num­ber of years, King penned arti­cles for the racist web­site VDARE, founded by white suprema­cist Peter Brimelow. In one blog entry, he dis­cussed his expe­ri­ence at a March for Dig­nity, com­prised of, in King’s words, “mostly His­panic demon­stra­tors.” He wrote, “I got the sense that I had left the coun­try of my birth and been trans­ported to some Mex­i­can vil­lage, com­pletely taken over by an angry, barely restrained mob….My first act on a safe return home was to take a shower.”

King also has ties to racist John Tan­ton, the archi­tect of the mod­ern anti-immigrant move­ment. Tax deductible dona­tions to King’s DIS can be made through U.S., Inc., a group founded by Tan­ton. The pres­i­dent of U.S., Inc. is anti-immigrant extrem­ist K.C. McAlpin, Tanton’s right-hand man. McAlpin orga­nizes an anti-immigrant Writ­ers Work­shop event each year where activists, includ­ing a num­ber of racists, present on immi­gra­tion top­ics. King spoke at both the 2010 and 2011 Writ­ers Work­shop.  In 2010, other speak­ers included Jason Rich­wine, who left the Her­itage Foun­da­tion after infor­ma­tion emerged that he had writ­ten for a “nation­al­ist” web­site and had writ­ten his doc­toral the­sis argu­ing that the U.S. should focus its immi­gra­tion efforts on peo­ple with high IQs, and Kevin DeAnna, the founder of the now-defunct far-right stu­dent group Youth for West­ern Civ­i­liza­tion. In addi­tion, King is a con­trib­u­tor to Tanton’s anti-immigrant jour­nal The Social Con­tract, edited by racist Wayne Lut­ton.

Though King has demo­nized immi­grants through his big­oted state­ments, he con­tin­ues to be a major player in the immi­gra­tion debate in Geor­gia. His work­ing rela­tion­ship with politi­cians can impact immi­gra­tion leg­is­la­tion and the lives of immi­grants in Georgia.
