Jews, neo-Nazis on same page?
New York-based Jewish weekly Forward published article over the weekend depicting goings-on at recent conference sponsored by white supremacy magazine, which was attended by representatives of neo-Nazi organizations from all over the U.S., as well as by group of extreme right-wing Jews. Magazine editor: As far as Im concerned, a white Jew is white
The New York-based Jewish weekly Forward published an article over the weekend depicting the on goings at the American Renaissance Conference in Virginian last February.
The conference, which is sponsored by a magazine dedicated to the purity of the race, was attended by representatives of neo-Nazi organizations from all over the U.S., as well as by a group of extreme right-wing Jews.
According to the Forward, the events passed without major incident until former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke approached the microphone on the floor during the question-and-answer session for French writer Guillaume Faye.
'Our own people come first
After congratulating Faye for stirring remarks that "touched my genes," Duke asked if there weren't an even more insidious threat to the West than Islam.
"There is a power in the world that dominates our media, influences our government and that has led to the internal destruction of our will and our spirit," the Forward quoted Duke as saying.
"Tell us, tell us," came a call from the back of the room.
"I'm not going to say it," Duke said to rising laughter.
But Michael Hart, a squat, balding Jewish astrophysicist from Maryland, was not amused. He rose from his seat, strode toward Duke, spit out a curse "You f...ing Nazi, you've disgraced this meeting" and exited.
The Forward report noted that only a few minutes earlier Hart, a mainstay of American Renaissance conferences, had been trying to reassure Herschel Elias, a first-time attendee from suburban Philadelphia, that he should not let his observation that the meeting was "infiltrated by Nazis and Holocaust deniers" ruin his impression of American Renaissance.
"The speakers aren't Nazis," Hart assured him. "Jared isn't a Nazi."
Jared is Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance magazine. He founded the publication 1990, and since 1994 he had sponsored the biennial conference that bears its name. A former liberal, Taylor is glib, gracious and genial, capable of putting his white nationalism in the most benign and commonsense terms.
"We mean well to all people," he said in his address at this year's conference, "but our own people come first."
Jews must be part of the movement
The conference has attracted ever larger crowds, with this year's event drawing about 300 people all white (no more than 5 percent Jewish) and most of them male. The attendees are united by a common belief in black intellectual inferiority, opposition to non-white immigration and ardor for maintaining America's white majority. By the end of this seventh biennial conference, however, the delicate state of his coalition seemed apparent.
Hart, who spoke at the 1996 conference about his plan for a racial partition of the United States, said that Taylor now had to face the fact that he must purge the Nazis or lose the Jews. "He can't expect Jews to come if there are Nazis here,'' Hart said.
"Ultimately, for all the things I care about to happen, Jews must be part of the movement," Taylor said in an interview. The reason, he added, is that Jews have influence and are widely seen as "the conscience of our society."
For example, Taylor said, without Jewish support it will be nearly impossible to restrict immigration. Besides, the conference organizer said, as far as he is concerned, a white Jew is white.
Four of the 10 speakers were Jewish at the first conference in 1994 in Atlanta, including New York writer Lawrence Auster and City College philosophy professor Michael Levin. The after-dinner speaker that year was Rabbi Mayer Schiller, a teacher at Yeshiva University High School for Boys who believes in racial separatism. Schiller brought a cadre of yeshiva students with him. Kosher dinners were provided.
At the 2000 conference in Herndon, Robert Weissberg a political scientist who then worked at the University of Illinois delivered a speech titled "Jews and Blacks: Everything the Goyim Want To Know but Were Afraid To Ask."
His thesis was that although Jews and blacks loathe one another, Jews remain frightened of the white right.
It's not surprising. AmRen's growth path is limited unless they become more inclusive. As more Jews become increasingly frightened by increasing Muslim influence in the US and Europe, don't be surprised if a hybrid organization emerges
I find it hard to believe that the attendees cannot figure this out, unless they ALL are monitoring each other.
FRmail me to be added or removed from this Judaic/pro-Israel/Russian Jewry ping list.
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
Duke sickens me. I am ashamed that he is of the same race I am.
However, this article is doing a smear job. Duke's appearance notwithstanding, I have heard Jared Taylor interviewed on the radio before and he is no racist from what I recall. A lot of people try to paint him that way.
I will have to look into this American Renaissance group. This article smacks of guilt by association. 'Pod.
During the Crown Heights Riots in New York City, as Jews were assaulted and killed by fellow Democrats, with a Democrat mayor praising the police for their "restraint" in dealing with the rioters, I'm sure that more than a few of the Jews of Crown Heights wished they had a few heavily armed "good 'ol boy" friends on their side
Correct. I noticed that too.
I'm of the strong suspicion that Duke is a Leftist playing a role. I have a similar suspicion regarding the homophobic "reverend" who harasses military funerals
This is what the Patriot Act is for to weed out sedition towards our Constitution of equality from the violent fringe of politics. "Racism" is a mental disorder so hence as much attention needs to be paid to these actors as some radical Muslims before they begin to let their disorder take them towards violent ends. Perhaps this Taylor fella and this Hart need some relaxing time in jail to ponder errors of their way. Its no time to backslide since it has taken decades for the Right to consider the absolute greatness of Dr. King and what he represented, and there is no need to go back to the time when even National Review published the evil works of the Dixiecrats and even such notorious cranks as Revilo Oliver.
Is American Rennaisance magazine any relation to the vile, racist website of the same name?
I'm ashamed to belong to the same species as Duke.
Crazy Jews. Looking for help amongst the intellectual heirs to the retards of the Nazi party; those who didn't quite understand what was going on, but were losers and happy to take it out on Jews. I'm not sure what was going on in their heads, and I'm sure their parents are just covering their faces right now.
Seriously, we should start shippinng racists to Zimbabwe. Let them all squabble with Mugabe. Two problems dealt with.
I presume you mean YNet and the "Forward" trying to smear all right-wing Jews with this handful of nutjobs.
Oh, I mean "Forward" for trying to smear all right-wing Jews, but I primarily meant whatever Jews showed up to an event with David Duke...
David Duke first ran as a Democrat, then an Independent, before running as a Republican. I believe he is an Independent again.
Rev. Fred Phelps has run numerous times as a Democrat and was a friend of Al Gore's into the 1990s.
We would need a new sedition act to be able to prosecute that crime. They get passed from time to time but they don't stay on the books.
Treason in a time of war is defined in the Constitution and does not constitute free speech.
Despite my own bitter denunciations of the political stances of the Black community, it has nothing to do with genes and chromosomes. I merely don't understand that community's support for (or blindness to) social/moral liberalism. I have no idea why so many people regard race as important in and of itself--especially people who believe all human beings are the literal children of Adam and Eve.
I'm also aware that white racialism is another non-Theistically-based moral crusade, no different from Marxism or Randianism. Why any Monotheist would make their loyalty to G-d lower than any other loyalty or belief is way beyond me.
