White supremacists hope Obama win prompts backlash

  • PEARL, Miss. (AP) — They’re not exactly rooting for Barack Obama, but prominent white supremacists anticipate a boost to their cause if he becomes the first black president. His election, they say, would trigger a backlash – whites rising up, a revolution of sorts – that they think is long overdue.

    He’d be a “visual aid,” says former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, in trying to bring others around to their view that whites have lost control of America. Obama’s election, says another, would jar whites into action, writing letters, handing out pamphlets rather than sitting around complaining.

    While most Americans have little or no direct contact with white supremacists, organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center keep close tabs; the law center estimates some 200,000 people nationwide are active in such groups. These observers think the prospect of a white revolution is fantasy.

    White supremacists – many call themselves nationalists or “White activists,” with a capital W – have had limited political success: Duke served in the Louisiana Legislature. And the public has periodically been unsettled by their public events, like the effort by uniformed Nazis to march through Skokie, Ill., the annual Aryan Nations meetings in Idaho and elsewhere or the FBI’s clashes with armed white supremacists in several Western compounds.

    Richard Barrett is a 65-year-old lawyer who traveled the country for 40 years advocating what he perceives as the white side in racial issues – like his January rally in Jena, La., to support a white teenager who hung a noose in a school yard.

    Barrett is convinced Democrat Obama will defeat Republican John McCain in November.

    And that could cause an upheaval, Barrett, a leader in the Nationalist Movement, told The Associated Press in an interview at his rural Mississippi home.

    “Instead of this so-called civil rights bill, for example, that says you have to give preferences to minorities, I think the American people are going – once they see the ‘Obamanation’ – they’re going to demand a tweaking of that and say, ‘You have to put the majority into office,'” Barrett said.

    Across the United States, some white supremacists are saying an Obama presidency could create a racial backlash that will give their groups a boost.

    Barrett is evasive about his ideology and tries to keep reporters from using “buzz words” to describe him. He doesn’t call himself a white supremacist, although the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center do.

    The law center tracks the Nationalist Movement, the Klan and like-minded groups from its Montgomery, Ala., headquarters. The center’s “Hatewatch” newsletter reported in June that some neo-Nazis, Klansmen and anti-Semites are saying an Obama presidency could prompt a race war, which many on the “radical right” believe whites would win.

    Although not all white supremacists agree, “large numbers of these people really seem to think that an Obama election would benefit them hugely,” Mark Potok, the center’s intelligence director, said in an interview. He called that view “essentially a fantasy.”

    Duke, the former Klan leader, posted an essay on his Web site in June titled, “Obama Wins Demo Nomination: A Black Flag for White America.”

    Obama “will be a clear signal for millions of our people,” Duke wrote. “Obama is a visual aid for White Americans who just don’t get it yet that we have lost control of our country, and unless we get it back we are heading for complete annihilation as a people.”

    Jason Robb, a Harrison, Ark., attorney who represents the Klan’s Knights Party, describes himself as a “white nationalist.”

    “It doesn’t really matter if Obama wins the election or McCain wins the election,” Robb said in an interview. “Neither of them are going to try to fight to preserve the white race or heritage.”

    Robb said, however, that Obama’s election could prompt more whites to get involved in politics by distributing pamphlets or writing letters to editors.

    Although the South has had more racial violence than most of the country, Randy Blazak, a sociology professor at Oregon’s Portland State University, says white supremacists live all over the United States. Blazak, who has studied skinheads for two decades, calls white supremacists a counterculture, not a movement, contending the latter term overstates their numbers.

    Blazak said white supremacists thrive on fear of changing race relations, the women’s movement and gay rights. Blazak said white working class people in particular long for a “Leave It To Beaver” society.

    “Those were the ‘good old days’ for straight, white males. But for everyone else, it was a pretty raw deal,” Blazak said.

    Barrett, a New York City native who moved to Mississippi in 1966, said the Nationalist Movement has members in 36 states, but he won’t say how many. He compares today’s skinheads to the minutemen of the American Revolution.

    “The Revolution, if you will, in 1776 brought the 13 colonies together against the king. And the same thing can happen now against Martin Luther King, with the 50 states,” Barrett said, if Obama’s elected.

    Barrett says he is a Democrat but won’t say whether he’s voting for Obama. He’ll only say he won’t support McCain, Libertarian Bob Barr or independent Ralph Nader.

    Charles Evers, brother of Medgar Evers, the Mississippi NAACP leader killed by a sniper in 1963, chuckles when told about Barrett’s assertions.

    “See, Richard doesn’t really mean what he says. It’s popular for him to say it. That’s the way he makes a living,” said Evers, who hosts a talk show on WMPR-FM in Jackson. “Same as Jesse Jackson, some more of our black revolutionaries who make a living off of keeping things emotional.”

    Although a longtime Republican, Evers supports Obama. He says the Democrat is more qualified than McCain.

    Evers, whose office has photos of him with Robert Kennedy, Richard Nixon, George W. Bush and other politicians, said he sees broad, multiracial support for Obama, even in parts of the South where the white establishment dug in to try to preserve racial segregation decades ago.

    “I think we’re past that stage,” Evers said. “I don’t think the majority of white people are thinking that way anymore.”

    Kim Edwards of Matteson, Ill., a black woman who traveled to Mississippi with a racially mixed group so her son could play in a baseball tournament, is more skeptical. Edwards worries that extremists want Obama to be elected so they can assassinate him.

    “I’m really concerned for his safety,” said Edwards, who plans to vote for Obama. “I’m concerned that once he gets in office that he won’t be recognized as an American president.”

    However, former Mississippi Gov. William Winter, a white Democrat who served on President Clinton’s commission on racial reconciliation, doesn’t foresee widespread white backlash if Obama is elected.

    “We are a diverse country,” said Winter, who supports Obama. “We are made up of people of every conceivable racial background.”

    Hell’s Brand:A “counterscrewed spin”

    Obama Wins Demo Nomination:By David Duke

    In auto racing, a black flag is the signal used for the car to go to the pits. Barack Obama winning the Democrat Nomination is a black flag for America, a sign of where we as a people and nation are heading…to the pits.

    In reality, Barack Hussein Obama is no more of a danger to the interests of the White American than Hillary Clinton or John McCain. Perhaps he is even less of one, for when traitors become your own leaders they are much more dangerous to you than a powerful enemy outside of your own ranks.

    Still, Obama is a signal flag that European Americans have lost control over the government of the nation they founded, a nation that when it was at its best was the a pinnacle of the dreams of Western man. In a sense, America being composed of every heritage of Europe embodied a collective will of our European folk, a power that created great documents of freedom and wonderful examples of courage. It embodied a national will that accomplished the greatest adventure in the history of mankind, the placing of European footprints on the moon.

    Contemporary to that American lunar accomplishment, the seeds of destruction were sown in the racist, anti-European, Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, an act that discriminates against European immigrants (like us) and favors the Third World. In those years the media and its all-seeing-eye of television fell under the iron grip of a small tribe of non-Europeans who nurtured ancient hatreds against us since the time our Greek and Roman European forbears conquered them.

    Now, the dreams of our forefathers have morphed into our own living nightmares in which anti-White racism and and White self-hate dominate the political and media landscape. Millions of our people face massive racial discrimination in the Newspeak of “affirmative action.” We have lost the educational system our people created and made one of the best in the world, to the point where millions of our people can’t send their kids to the schools their own taxes pay for, where their children not only face educational mediocrity, but often the far worse fate of physical beatings, sexual assaults and the drug environment of gangstas and gangsta rap-infested schools.  
    Our people find their taxes being doled out by the billions for the medical care and welfare of illegal aliens and welfare cheats while millions of our hard working people can’t get or can’t afford the most basic medical insurance. We spend trillions of dollars of American tax money in foreign wars orchestrated by those in our midst who are themselves foreign to every value of America and who are themselves loyal to a foreign nation. Must I invoke the two names of the chief orchestrators of the Iraq War, the Jewish extremists, Wolfowitz and Perle? Does anyone really still believe that the Iraq War is on behalf of America?

    These same supremacists who have us die and go bankrupt for Israel as a segregated, supremacist, “Jewish State,” tell us that it is evil for White Americans to preserve our civil rights, our heritage, our traditions and our values in the nation we founded. Not content with destroying the European heritage of our own country, they now use the military and economic, media and social might of the United States to influence and destroy the racial foundations of every White nation on earth. The aliens who control the media and political establishment of America use the might of our country to support every degenerate and destructive policy imaginable, from open borders to a pornographically sick international media, where every kind of sickness, perversion, immorality, dishonesty and ugliness is relentlessly promoted.

    Obama, though not appreciably different in policies from Clinton or McCain, is symbolic of that transfer of the control of America from White to anti-White. However, he is not the author of his success. He is the result of decades of anti-White propaganda promoted by the alien media and he is the result, as are McCain and Clinton, of millions of dollars of Jewish agenda money like that of Obama’s biggest campaign contributor, Goldman Sachs. He is propelled by the dynamics of Black and minority racism, and the anti-White racism instilled in far too many of our own kind.

    The fact that so many Whites would support him even after his twenty year membership in an anti-White church is indicative of the media-instilled sickness in so many of our own people. These are brainwashed Whites who would believe that a White man standing up for his people’s interests is the epitome of evil, but a Black man doing it is the epitome of goodness. Of course, in the long run even Obama can’t put the interests of Black people first, or the interests of the American majority first. The radical advocates of the Jewish minority control the key positions of American media, finance and political fundraising. They are the real rulers of 21st century America, rulers for whom Obama has already bent over.

    The government and media establishment are embarked on a catastrophic agenda to make European Americans an eventual political minority in the nation we founded. Over all of this degenerating multicultural, multiracial menagerie, stirring this boiling cauldron of a toxic melting pot, sit the ultimate racists, the Jewish supremacists and their sycophants. Anyone who seeks any office in America, from President of the United States down to town dog catcher must pass the ultimate litmus test of eagerness to put the interests of Israel over those of the United States. Obama has passed the test. He has genuflected before the one unassailable power in the United States, the one power that no one can criticize, that no one is even allowed to acknowledge, and that no one can refuse to obey without career-ending consequences. McCain has long since proven his servility to the Jewish extremists, and he has long since proven his role as White race traitor by being a co-sponsor of the amnesty bill that would speed up the already horrifyingly rapid demise of the America of our fathers and mothers.

    In truth, McCain, being at least a White man on the outside, and being the top Republican, can marshal far more support for anti-White programs in the U.S. Congress than could Obama. No Republican or conservative Democrat would have too much trouble opposing Obama’s amnesty, it could be an endearing mark of honor for many. But, many Republicans would be forced by party loyalty and party committee assignments and similar inducements to support catastrophic policies proposed by McCain, policies McCain has already supported and that surely he will support again.
    America has marched steadily toward catastrophe since the 1930s. Whether it was Hoover or Roosevelt, Truman or Eisenhower, Kennedy or Johnson or Nixon or even Ronald Reagan, American policy has moved remorselessly toward the destruction of the European American community. Bush is the epitome of everything wrong with the American political establishment. He sometimes mimics a God-fearing, patriotic American but actually stands for every evil that will wipe our people off the map.

    Obama will be no worse for us than any of the White sell-outs that came before him. But, Obama will be a clear signal for millions of our people. Obama is a visual aid for White Americans who just don’t get it yet that we have lost control of our country, and unless we get it back we are heading for complete annihilation as a people.

    Obama is like that big dark spot on your arm that finally sends you to the doctor for some real medicine. Obama is the pain that lets your body know that something is dreadfully wrong.

    Obama lets the American people know that there is a real cancer eating away at the heart of our country and Republican aspirin will not only not cure it, but only masks the pain and makes you think you don’t need radical surgery.

    Obama is the telltale X-ray.

    Obama is the wake up call.

    The elite that controls the media and government are pushing Obama down our throats, and millions of the American people resent it.

    My bet is that whether Obama wins or loses come November, millions of European Americans will inevitably react with a new awareness of their heritage and the need to defend and advance it.

    Obama’s winning the Democratic nomination will usher in a new age of racially conscious American politics. The minorities have long had this consciousness. They have been voting in blocs for decades. Now it is our turn.

    The Obama nomination draws the lines of racial demarcation in America.

    He helps make everything very clear to our people. He paves the way for thousands of other candidates on the American horizon, White candidates who stand up for our own people the way that Obama stands up for his.  –David Duke
