White Supremacist Recruiting Poster Spotted, Then Destroyed In Bay Ridge
By Jake Offenhartz
Jan. 3, 2020 10:31 a.m.

A recruiting poster linked to a violent neo-Nazi group was discovered in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn on Thursday night.

Spotted on 86th Street near 3rd Avenue, the flyer features the website for Patriot Front, alongside classical American imagery and the message, "To ourselves and our posterity."

Patriot Front is considered to be among the most active and pernicious fascist groups in the United States. Founded in the wake of the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, the organization's manifesto advocates for a white ethnostate, accomplished by seizing power and land from people of color, immigrants, and Jews.

Elected officials and local residents sharply condemned the poster on Thursday. "My constituents have a right to live without fear. We will not be intimidated by clowns and cowards," tweeted Councilman Justin Brannan.

Bay Ridge is a majority white neighborhood, but has the city's largest number of residents who speak Arabic at home, according to the census.

Assembly member Mathylde Frontus added that the posters were "disturbing and unacceptable on so many levels." She said she'd spoken to the local police precinct, which promised a full investigation.

Patriot Front has reportedly upped its pamphleting and recruiting efforts in the past year, particularly on college campuses. A recent profile in ProPublica lays out the group's objectives:

Patriot Front aspired to help chart a new way forward: spread propaganda espousing its version of a nascent American fascism; quietly recruit new members worried about a nation overrun by immigrants and a world controlled by Jews; avoid talking about guns or violence online, but engage in a mix ofBay Ridge is a majority white neighborhood, but has the city's largest number of residents who speak Arabic at home, according to the census.

The poster was subsequently destroyed shortly after the photo was taken, he added.

Mortal danger! Posters aren't free speech! Vandalism and intimidation to foster anxiety! Wearing masks in public and communicate secretly!

White activism at Bedford IN in the news

Neighbors concerned and outraged after receiving racist flyers in Bedford

Published: Jan 2nd, 2020 - 10:59pm (EST)
Updated: Jan 4th, 2020 - 2:55am (EST)

BEDFORD, Ind. (WTHR) - It wasn't what Kristen Hayes was expecting to find in her driveway.

"I saw a Ziploc bag that had a rock and a sheet of paper that was folded in fours," Hayes said.

Just two days into the new year, Hayes says she found an unwelcome message someone had left for her.

"It had a sheet that said 'White Power. Get some' and the swastika was in the middle and it shocked me," Hayes explained, saying she thought someone had targeted her family in a neighborhood in Bedford's north end of town.

"I do have a biracial son, so I really was heartbroken, thinking it was an isolated case," said Hayes.

Turns out, Hayes wasn't the only person with something waiting in their driveway.

Other neighbors shared with Eyewitness News that they also received the same kind of plastic bags with rocks inside and other flyers with links to white power websites listed on them.

"My grandson, 9 years old, came in with a bag with a rock in it and handed it to me," explained Denise Barnett, saying the flyer inside the plastic bag left on her driveway said, "No White Guilt," while listing other websites linked to white power idealogies.

"We told the police, we don't take this lightly. We're serious about this," said Barnett, explaining she called police and made a report.

Hayes also reported the flyer she got and said she knows of at least three other families in the neighborhood who received plastic bags with similar messages inside.

Bedford Police said they're investigating.

Hayes said she hopes they can find whoever is responsible. She knows she'll sleep better if they do.

"If something like this happens, we can't just stand by and let it happen. You have to fight back," said Hayes.
With snow on the ground in many places, or the threat of similar inclement weather this winter, bagging flyers is a good idea. In about two weeks, the Alliance flyer "No King Above Us" will find a timely occasion to be distributed. Get yours printed and prepared to go out!

More white-supremacist, anti-Semitic fliers found in New Dorp
Updated 4:36 PM;Today {6 January 2020}3:54 PM

By Paul Liotta | pliotta@siadvance.com

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Another set of fliers promoting a New Jersey hate group were found in New Dorp on Thursday.

Tracy Schulman, who has previously shared similar items with the Advance, said she found the fliers from the New Jersey European Heritage Association at the bus stop near the intersection of Mill Road and Tysens Lane Thursday morning while walking her dogs.

“It makes me uncomfortable. We never had these problems on Staten Island -- like this,” Schulman, who grew up in the East Shore neighborhood, said. “There’s no place for hate on Staten Island.”

The flier Schulman found lays out a series of ways America is being “SUBVERTED,” ranging from pornography to the “ANTI WHITE AGENDA.”

Each of the subversion examples is accompanied by partial quotes or information from Jewish sources in an apparent effort to make clear the group’s vehement anti-Semitism.

GROUP BASED IN NEW JERSEY

On its website’s contact form, one of the questions asks if the person contacting the organization is of “European non-Semitic descent.”

The Anti-Defamation League lists NJEHA as a “small, New Jersey-based white supremacist group” that “espouses racism, anti-Semitism and intolerance under the guise of ‘saving’ white European peoples from purported imminent extinction.”

A series of anti-Semitic attacks have recently rocked the New York metro area with the most notable coming in early December when members of an extremist sect of the Black Hebrew Israelite movement killed four people, including one police officer, in an attack in Jersey City.

Community leaders along with law enforcement and elected officials have been working to address the issue. More than 10,000 people took part in a march across the Brooklyn Bridge Sunday to protest anti-Semitism and hate.

ISLAND LEADERS TAKING ACTION

Rep. Max Rose along with other members of the city’s congressional delegation urged New York’s non-profit institutions to take advantage of a $90-million increase in security grant funding passed as part of the remaining fiscal year 2020 budget.

Rose (D-Staten Island/South Brooklyn) will also chair his first congressional hearing of the new year focused directly on anti-Semitism and the rise in domestic attacks on the Jewish community.

“Nazis and white supremacists are the scum of the earth and have no place in our community or country,” Rose said Monday. “The reality of the violence they preach is all too real and we all must stand strong in denouncing and combating it.”

Schulman said she made police at the 122nd Precinct aware of the fliers. Previously, she made the community aware of other fliers blaming Jewish people for the 9/11 attacks.

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R-East Shore/South Brooklyn) said she also reached out to the NYPD, and that they are actively investigating the origin.

“This is both outrageous and frightening,” she said. “Hate organizations have no place in society, especially not in our diverse community.”

City Council Minority Leader Steven Matteo urged borough residents not to take the threat of bigoted violence lightly given the recent spate of anti-Semitic attacks.

“However, as I have said in the past, I have faith that Staten Islanders will reject the hate and ignorance in these appalling fliers and put them where they belong - in the garbage,” he said.

“In the meanwhile, I will continue to work with law enforcement and leaders of our faith communities to protect our Jewish neighbors and I ask that Staten Islanders remain vigilant.”
Such hateful comments directed towards White Americans! Fortunately, there is a comments section at this article's website where this message was countered several times.

KKK fliers in downtown Lafayette for third time stir demands for stronger city response
Dave Bangert, Lafayette Journal & Courier Published 4:39 p.m. ET Jan. 7, 2020 | Updated 11:40 a.m. ET Jan. 8, 2020

Ku Klux Klan fliers found in downtown Lafayette for the third time in two years has some calling on the city to take a stronger stance.

LAFAYETTE – The late-night, faceless M.O. is familiar by now in and around downtown Lafayette.

Maybe a little too familiar, says Susan Schechter, who in recent days found a small flier on her porch at 10th and Ferry streets, telling her that the “Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan Wants You to Join!”

The piece of paper – printed with a phone number in North Carolina on one side and an admonition to “Love your own race” next to the face of a hooded Klansman on the other – came in a sandwich-size plastic bag, weighted down by a few small stones, that has been a hallmark of Klan material turning up in downtown Lafayette at least three times in the past two years.
Recruiting fliers for the Ku Klux Klan, tucked into plastic sandwich bags and weighted down with rocks, were found in Jan. 3, 2019, at homes and businesses in and near downtown Lafayette. The reports were the third in the past two years.

Schechter reported the find to Lafayette police early this week. She said officers offered to come get it from her or that she could just throw the propaganda away. She pitched it on her own. Lafayette police already had reported picking up two dozen of the fliers after responding to a report Friday from a resident on Brown Street.

“This is ridiculous,” Schechter said. “It is true, it’s legal to disseminate. Churches do it. Candidates do it. But they don’t do it under the cover of darkness. And they don’t do it with rocks. … I’m not intimidated. But I think this material, this junk – whatever you want to call it – it’s intended to intimidate, whoever it is doing it.”

No one has stepped up to take responsibility for dropping this round of racist, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ leaflets. The telephone number on the fliers leads to an answering machine for the Loyal White Knights, a group in Pelham, North Carolina, listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center as one of dozens of Ku Klux Klan groups active across the United States. (The outgoing message: “If you’re white and proud, join the crowd.”) The website, which credits a couple named Chris and Amanda Barker as leaders, touts calls for separating races and religions under a general theme of, “If it ain’t white, it ain’t right.”

It was a similar situation in January 2018 and April 2019, when fliers from the group – again, bagged with small rocks in clear plastic – wound up on doorsteps of Main Street businesses and apartments.

“It’s so disgusting,” said Eric Wiemer, a Purdue graduate student who found the Klan’s baggies outside his Main Street apartment in 2018 and 2019.

The discovery led him to join Showing Up for Racial Justice, an anti-racism organization with a chapter in Greater Lafayette. Leaders of SURJ and other groups said this week they plan to press city officials at Monday’s Lafayette City Council meeting about what, if anything, can be done.

“At the very least – the least I can ask for – is some sort of condemnation of these acts from our city officials,” Wiemer said. “I want some comfort that we don’t support this stuff in this city. I want to feel comfortable in my home and in my community, and I want to see them reassure me and my friends that this isn’t what we stand for.”

Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski said police have looked into each case, trying to identify who was passing out the Klan material. A Journal & Courier review of city-owned security cameras in downtown after the 2018 and 2019 incidents produced images of a man dropping off what appeared to be the fliers, but no one claimed to be or to know him.

Roswarski said that if police did find out who was doing it, “it’s not technically illegal, other than maybe littering.”

“We can’t control the behavior of every single person,” Roswarski said. “What’s important as a community is that we stand together and say that this is a welcoming community, this is a community that supports diversity and that the activities of the Klan are deplorable and we, in every way, condemn what they’re trying to do and what they’re trying to recruit.”

Kirsten Gibson, director of the local SURJ chapter, said she wasn’t sure there was much police could do, either. She noted “a certain boldness” when someone could distribute Klan recruiting pieces “and feel there are no repercussions.”

“I think it’s telling that, when Indiana has this rich history, unfortunately, with the KKK and white supremacist organizations, and when it shows up in our community, there’s really hardly a noticeable response,” Gibson said.

BANGERT: The strategy the last time Ku Klux Klan rallied in Lafayette

“We’re asking our city leaders to take a stand and to make a public statement against these kinds of actions whenever they happen,” Gibson said. “Especially because the city is concerned with the culture in Lafayette. They’re wanting to improve the downtown life, as they have been over the past couple of years. And, yes, while it may be embarrassing that we have midget wrestling at the Lafayette Theater, what I think is more embarrassing is that there are white supremacist fliers downtown and there’s hardly a response.”

(The last line was a riff on the city’s recent purchase and contracting the nonprofit Long Center board to take over booking for the Lafayette Theater – a spot targeted with Klan fliers in the past.)

Among the suggestions will be a bigger push to plan for the YWCA’s “Stand Against Racism” events in April, when businesses and groups will be asked to host or organize events meant to discuss and confront racism.

“People dropping off these fliers do those things when they think there’s an audience for it,” said Jordan Bonfitto, director of communications and engagement for YWCA Greater Lafayette. “Obviously, they’re doing it at night because they know it’s looked down upon. But they’re also thinking, ‘You know what, people do agree with me.’ I think the more public conversations we have, the more businesses we have who say, ‘Look, we stand against racism,’ that the people doing this will realize there’s less of an audience.”

Deanna McMillan, an engineer and educator living in Lafayette, didn’t get one of the Loyal White Knights fliers this time around. But she said she saw Schechter’s Facebook page, which had a picture of what was found on her porch.

“I've had enough,” said McMillan, who is African American. “We brought my grandson out of the pits of hell in Baltimore only to have this (B.S.) to deal with.”

McMillan compared the Klan leaflets to the arrests made in the past week of two adults and three juveniles caught spray-painting gang-related graffiti in Lafayette’s north end.

“Can you imagine raising a black child in this environment?” McMillan asked. “There needs to be repercussions for these actions. It's a free for all in the Greater Lafayette area. There is none. I'm from New York City. What do you think would happen is that (stuff) was left on people's doorstep?”

Schechter said she speculated neighborhoods in and near downtown were targeted to stir things up in a place where there is “a lot more diversity than in other places in town.”

“I don’t think it’s a huge threat, honestly,” Schechter said. “But it keeps happening. It can’t go unanswered. It’s just unacceptable here.”

WHAT YOU CAN DO: The YWCA Greater Lafayette’s Stand Against Racism 2020 will be April 23-26. For more information and for event registration, which opens Jan. 20, go to www.standagainstracism.org.
OTHER INCIDENTS

Aside from Ku Klux Klan recruiting pieces being distributed in downtown Lafayette, there have been other fliers and threats tied to white supremacists found in Greater Lafayette in the past three years. Among them, according to J&C archives:

► In May 2017, West Lafayette police received numerous complaints about fliers rolled up around construction nails and delivered on doors and in driveways near campus with unsigned, uncredited death threats to singer-songwriter Jackson Browne and college professors, with warnings to residents: "Shut your mouth or pay the consequences!" Police investigated but did not report arrests. (Similar fliers were found in downtown Monticello, about 29 miles north, that same weekend.)

► On Jan. 21, 2018, someone tied bedsheet-sized banners on a fence outside the Unitarian Universalist Church, 333 Meridian St. in West Lafayette, with slurs about gays and lesbians, African Americans, Hispanics and – again – Jackson Browne. Those banners included threats, referencing a mass shooting at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas that killed 58 and injured more than 500 more people. West Lafayette police, assisted by federal law enforcement, investigated but made no arrests. A rally at the church a few nights later drew an overflow crowd of church members, city officials and clergy from other congregations.

► On Sept. 1, 2018, visitors coming to Labor’s Day in the Park, a Labor Day event that draws hundreds to Lafayette’s Columbian Park, found neo-Nazi fliers tacked to trees outside the Tropicanoe Cove water park and taped to fence outside Loeb Stadium. The fliers touted the National Socialist Legion, a spinoff of Vanguard America, a white nationalist group – then known as American Vanguard – that has distributed posters and propaganda in the past three years at Purdue University. Lafayette parks security, using park cameras, were not able to identify who left the material.

White nationalist banner found hanging over Belt Parkway
January 5, 2020 Meaghan McGoldrick and Paula Katinas

A massive handmade banner promoting a white nationalist website was discovered hanging over a Belt Parkway overpass on Saturday.

The banner, tied to the 80th Street pedestrian overpass in Bay Ridge, was spotted days after posters for the same organization were found nearby, and as the city confronts a surge of anti-Semitic attacks.

In response, 11 neighborhood grassroots organizations have banded together to schedule a rally on Sunday, Jan. 5. The groups will meet at the corner of Third Avenue and 86th Street — near where one of the posters was found — to form a human chain along the avenue and rally for peace. The human chain, organizers said, is meant to demonstrate attendees’ willingness to protect their neighbors.

“It’s clear that if we don’t combat this hate in our neighborhood these groups will continue recruiting and escalate their behavior. This is why a show of solidarity is so important at this time,” said Mallory McMahon, co-founder of Fight Back Bay Ridge, which is helping lead the response. “We outnumber them and will make Bay Ridge inhospitable to white nationalism. They won’t win. This will only make us stronger in our unity.”

The rally will begin at 2 p.m.

The banner seen Saturday didn’t carry any explicit message of hate, reading only “Defend American Labor.” It had the address for the website of the nationalist group, known as Patriot Front.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a legal advocacy organization that monitors hate groups and other extremists in the United States, has identified the Patriot Front as a white nationalist hate group. The Patriot Front is a splinter group that broke off from a larger organization, Vanguard America, following the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. In that incident, clashes between white supremacist groups and protesters grew violent, resulting in the death of one protester, Heather Heyer. Heyer was killed when a man plowed his car into a group of protesters.

The Anti-Defamation League’s website describes the Patriot Front as an organization that “falls into the alt-right segment of the white supremacist movement but presents itself as a ‘patriotic’ nationalist group.”

“We’re very concerned,” Rachel Grinspan, associate regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, said Friday. “Any form of extremist rhetoric is a concern, especially to see it popping up in a local neighborhood like Bay Ridge.”

Recruitment posters for the group began appearing around the neighborhood around the New Year, generating outrage as officials scrambled to find out who was responsible.

They’re a tool for Neo-Nazi recruitment.”

Since Thursday, Councilmember Justin Brannan, State Sen. Andrew Gounardes, Assemblymembers Mathylde Frontus and Nicole Malliotakis and Rep. Max Rose have spoken out against the recruitment posters.

The appearance of an active white nationalist group in Brooklyn comes as anti-Semitic incidents in New York City are up 21 percent as of last Sunday, according to NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea. Police received at least eight reports of possible anti-Semitic bias incidents around the city since Dec. 13. A number of the attacks took place over the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.

The NYPD did not immediately respond to a request for information.

Other co-sponsors of Sunday’s event include the Arab American Association of New York, Arab Women’s Voice, Bay Ridge for Social Justice, NYC Democratic Socialists of America, Gravesend Brooklyn Progressives, Indivisible Nation BK, Mexican-American Movement, South Brooklyn Progressive Network, South Brooklyn Progressive Resistance and Take on Hate.

“These groups encourage violence, and use these flyers both to recruit others to their cause and to terrorize our neighbors,” said Alan Holt of Fight Back Bay Ridge, the group spearheading Sunday’s event. “We must counter that.”
"Defend American Labor" is terrorizing neighbors? More hysteria in Jew York City! Perhaps the pollution (Jews and others, as well as environmental) has cut off blood circulation to the critical thinking lobe of their brains. Either that, or bad breeding practices there are catching up to them.

Comments were available....but are now closed! It seems this controlled media outlet doesn't want public input since the surviving comments went against their anti-White narrative.

KKK Flyers Delivered To Orland Park Residents
Hate literature was found in driveways on a street in Orland Park on Sunday, a property owner said and village officials have confirmed.
By Tim Moran, Patch Staff
Jan 8, 2020 7:55 pm CT

ORLAND PARK, IL — Ku Klux Klan materials were found in the driveways of a street in Orland Park this past weekend. The hate literature was distributed to three residences in town, according to the Orland Park Police Department.

But Donna Neil-Demir, who owns and rents out a home on the only street west of La Grange Road and between 135th and 131st streets near Sandburg High School, said she was told by neighbors the person who delivered the material on Sunday had dropped it off "in every driveway on the block," of which there are about a dozen, she said.

"To say it was only 3 (homes)... I'm not so sure about that," Neil-Demir said. "I haven't specifically asked, but I do know many people who received them. From what I have heard from neighbors, they were put in every other driveway on the block."

Orland Park Police Chief Tim McCarthy said the delivery "appears random" and did not come as a threat to any person in particular.

Neil-Demir said the flyers in the driveway of the home she owns were found by the renter, an African-American man. The material was delivered in plastic baggies and included three different cards and flyers containing hate speech, the village of Orland Park said in an email to residents.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations was contacted by Neil-Demir about the distribution of the flyers and have called on local police to "investigate the distribution of anti-Semitic, racist and white supremacist Ku Klux Klan materials distributed in an Orland Park, Ill. neighborhood."

"Anti-Semites, racists and white supremacists are increasingly emboldened and active across the country in the current political environment," CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper said. "All Americans must take a stand against the growing bigotry we are seeing nationwide, which is being promoted at the highest levels of our society."

Neil-Demir said the white residents of the neighborhood have been more surprised about this than minorities.

"This is part of the everyday life of being an African-American," Neil-Demir said. "It is our history that if you live in a neighborhood that's not primarily African-American you don't know how you are going to be seen."

Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau was among the public officials to condemn the hate flyer distribution.

"Public safety is a top priority in Orland Park," Pekau said. "The Orland Park Police Department is aware of the matter and has taken initial reports.... The Village of Orland Park strongly condemns this message and any message that promotes hate of any kind."

For Neil-Demir, this is something she has not only heard about, but experienced herself, several times in the south suburbs in recent years.

"A friend of mine had flyers put in his mailbox a few years ago... and I had a swastika put on my door in Palos Heights," she said. "There's this fallacy that this type of thing does not happen, but this does happen."

Hate Group Flyers Showing Up in Southern Ocean County
By STEPHANIE A. FAUGHNAN
January 3, 2020 at 9:14 AM

SOUTHERN OCEAN COUNTY, NJ – More than a few residents found a strange package waiting for them when they opened up their doors. Tucked within a plastic bag was a piece of folded paper. A rock was also inside – presumably to ensure the package didn’t fly away. The note inside bore a message of hate, attributed to the New Jersey European Heritage Association (NJEHA).

Locally, it appears the missives have been delivered to homes between Waretown and Eagleswood Township. “We first became aware of the distribution of the flyers within our town on December 31,” said Ocean Township Police Chief Michal Rogalski. “The incidents are currently under investigation by our detectives.”

Since Eagleswood does not have their own police department, New Jersey State Police also received notification of the random appearance of the flyers. Speaking on a condition of anonymity, the Eagleswood resident said he had no idea if he was specifically targeted with the message.

“I thought I spotted another package in someone else’s driveway,” said the Eagleswood homeowner. “I didn’t want to go too close to it and have someone think I left it there.”

According to their website, the NJEHA seeks “peaceful political change” in the struggle for survival of “white European peoples in America.” The website itself contains propaganda and flyers designed for distribution.

In 2018, The Daily Princetonian reported that a student found a flyer entitled “The White Race: Earth’s Most Endangered Species.” The NJEHA is listed on the document.

A year ago, authorities were advised that the group planned to conduct a rally at Palmer Square. However, the NJEHA took to Twitter and said there was never going to be a “march.” Instead, they thanked the “DSA, NIOT Princeton, Jewish supremacist news outlet, and the many other communist snowflakes for making them a household name.”

Reportedly, police in Bloomfield have also investigated the origin of flyers that appeared in that Essex County town. In October, another news organization reported that NJEHA representatives showed up in Newark to protest a rally held by Jewish activists against ICE.

In Southern Ocean County, residents in Waretown, Stafford and Eagleswood have reported receipt of flyers. According to Barnegat Police Chief Keith Germain, no one in Barnegat has contacted the department with the same concerns.
Hey, they just ripped off the National Alliance's sticker! Granted, it is one we haven't produced in many years but still..

White activism at PGH/ATL/Austin in the news

What Do You Do When Neo-Nazis Crash Your Anti-War Rally?

“Their presence is just to be a parasite.”

They showed up to anti-war protests in Pittsburgh and Atlanta on Saturday waving signs and distributing flyers. They live-streamed from a Monday night anti-war demonstration in Austin.

But they weren’t associated with the left-wing crowd who organized pushback on the U.S. assassination of top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani last week. They were far-right activists, some of them affiliated with known extremist groups.

In the days after Soleimani’s assassination, leftist-organized rallies drew hundreds of attendees each—fewer than the tens of thousands who showed up to some of the most visible anti-war protests against the Iraq War, but sizeable pockets of discontent nonetheless. At the same time, some right-wing figures have also made their presence felt in the emerging anti-war scene. Some are hecklers, just looking to crash a rival protest. But others, including overt neo-Nazi groups and Republican pundits like Tucker Carlson, who has voiced opposition to war on Fox News, represent an anti-interventionist wing of an otherwise hawkish conservative movement.

The apparent ideological overlap has some lefties wondering what, if anything, they should do about the far-right figures at their rallies in the era of Unite the Right and "very fine people on both sides."

The first of the faceoffs appears to have come Saturday, when five far-right demonstrators reportedly showed up at an anti-war protest in Pittsburgh’s Schenley Plaza. Although they chanted along with anti-war slogans, the men carried anti-Semitic signs blaming Jews for wars. Leftist demonstrators drove the group away with a “Nazis out” chant.

One of the interlopers was later identified as Greg Conte, a white nationalist who has worked closely with racist organizations. Conte made national headlines in 2018 when it was revealed that he worked as a substitute teacher. (On Twitter, former students accused him of bigotry in the classroom. Conte previously told the Washington Post that he did not “openly preach” his views at school but sometimes questioned students on whether hate could be acceptable, or why diversity was good.)

The same day, at least one member of the white supremacist group Patriot Front distributed flyers at an anti-war protest in Atlanta, according to an activist involved in anti-fascist organizing in that city who spoke on condition of anonymity.

A fascist presence at an anti-war rally might strike some observers as surprising. But certain fringes of the right have historically cozied up with anti-imperial movements.

“People often confuse the far right with other conservatives,” Spencer Sunshine, a writer and lecturer long focused on the far right, told The Daily Beast. But unlike more mainstream Republicans, “the far right, traditionally, is very isolationist. The original America First committees were opposed to U.S. entry in WWII. Generally, these groups are opposed to U.S. intervention overseas. They’ll often say they’re proxy wars for Israel. You find this stuff a lot more among groups that are highly anti-Semitic, or are third-positionist.”

“Third position” describes fascist ideology that often fuses some left-wing economic and anti-war policy with overt white supremacy and opposition to immigration, feminism, and LGBTQ rights. The National Policy Institute, a racist thinktank where Conte used to work alongside white nationalist Richard Spencer, could be classified as third-positionist, Sunshine noted.

On Twitter, Spencer has voiced opposition to attacks on Iran, but framed his argument in terms of protecting “Aryan heritage sites” from “Zionist” forces. At least one subsequent tweet denouncing President Donald Trump around the time Iran struck military bases in Iraq on Tuesday was picked up by hosts of The View, where audience members applauded the white nationalist who recently made headlines for screaming racist and anti-Semitic slurs.

Actors on the far right often use wars to invoke anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, either overtly accusing American Jews of orchestrating them (as Conte’s crowd reportedly did in Pittsburgh) or speaking more euphemistically about Israel or “Zionists” fueling the war efforts.

“It’s been a long-standing tactic of the far right in the U.S. to try to recruit from left-wingers, or to create a coalition,” Sunshine said. Occasionally those efforts are successful. “There are some people on the left who want to have a left-right coalition of anti-war people… They want to have a bloc of all anti-imperialists and they don’t really care who it is.”

The far right’s favorite Fox News pundit, Tucker Carlson, also made anti-war gestures after Soleimani’s assassination, claiming that war with Iran would be a distraction from cracking down on immigration. Although the stance placed Carlson at odds with most of his network, his comments were in line with previous salvos against people of color, according to Matt Gertz, a senior fellow at the liberal organization Media Matters.

“The argument he’s making there is that it’s a bad idea to get involved in an escalating situation with Iran because it’s going to get attention off of what he calls the ‘invasion’ of the southern border,” Gertz told The Daily Beast.

“That language of invasion, like the language of ‘Great Replacement’ that he uses, are frequent tropes of white nationalists, and part of the reason that white nationalists really appreciate Tucker Carlson’s show and think he’s a big asset to their movement.”

When the missiles actually drop, some supposedly anti-war Republicans fall into pro-war party lines. This summer, Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz enjoyed bipartisan buzz for his work on an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would have cut off federal funding for military actions on Iran that were not approved by Congress. The bill would have also barred the use of the 2001 or 2002 Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) to justify attacks on Iran. (The White House’s best legal defense of the strike on Soleimani rests on a shaky combination of both AUMFs, Lawfare reported.) The bill passed in the House, but was dropped from the final text of the NDAA.

Despite his previous support of the bill, Gaetz was a vocal supporter of the strike on Soleimani.

“The President correctly *responded* to violence & ongoing threats against US personnel after repeated warnings and admirable restraint,” Gaetz tweeted. “He did *not* start a regime change war.”

The day after Soleimani’s assassination, left-wing Rep. Ro Khanna and Senator Bernie Sanders announced plans to reintroduce the bill. Gaetz’s name was notably absent from the press release.

“Gaetz’s staff and our staff are in touch for the Sanders/Khanna bill but no decision has been made yet on partnership,” a Khanna spokesperson told The Daily Beast on Monday. A Sanders spokesperson said the senator and presidential candidate was interested in working across the aisle to pass the bill. Gaetz's office did not respond to a request for comment prior to publication.

Already, questions about how to respond to far-right incursion are dogging leftist anti-war groups.

In Atlanta, an anti-fascist group has begun circling a flyer warning activists to “look out for facist entryism at antiwar protests.” The group advised protesters to photograph interlopers or confront them directly.

Although footage of Pittsburgh demonstrators expelling interlocutors went viral, some social media users alleged that a number of rally attendees did little to oppose Conte’s crowd. In Austin on Monday, two people said to be associated with the far-right group Texas Nomads SAR crashed a Democratic Socialists of America anti-war rally while live-streaming. Anti-fascists on Twitter accused the DSA of being too slow to respond to the disruption.

Madeline Detelich, a member of the Austin DSA leadership, said the two live-streamers were there to antagonize protesters, not co-opt the rally, and that DSA members tried blocking their cameras with anti-war signs. Nevertheless, her chapter will be “strategizing” for future clashes, she said.

“We’re thinking a lot about the best way forward. My own view is that numbers are our best friend.”

Sunshine also characterized the conflict as a numbers game.

“The really far-right people don’t have the numbers,” he said. “Their presence is just to be a parasite on the organization."
Showing up at these rallies where many anti-Whites will be in attendance prepared with friends to hand out flyers and display signs to draw attention to websites where issues are explained more in depth is a tactic that can have some payoff, but has costs which far outweigh the benefits. The National Alliance can build in other ways than this without the attendant costs.

White activism at Edinburgh Scotland in the news

Anti-racism campaigners have condemned the appearance of stickers bearing a white nationalist slogan in Edinburgh.

The signs bear the message 'Anti-Semitism is caused by Semitism' - a phrase touted by neo-nazis and white nationalists on internet forums.

It is understood the stickers have been put up by an anonymous network of calling themselves the Hundred Handers.

The person who spotted the messages took down several stickers on Jeffrey Street and St Mary's Street.

The woman, who works locally and does not want to be named, said: "I pulled down two on St Mary’s, one outside Jury’s Inn and one by La Garrigue, but was rushing through the area so didn’t have time to check for more.

"[The stickers say] it was put up by Hundred Handers, a white nationalist group. They target alienated young men. I do worry this could escalate to violence."

She warned locals to be careful when removing the 'vile Nazi' stickers in case razor blades or sharp objects had been hidden behind - something other extremist groups have done in the past.

The woman added: "I know it’s been a problem elsewhere in Britain and Europe with far right stickers."

The incident is the latest in a string of similar attempts to spread hate messages across the UK.

In December, The Courier reported that a raft of neo-Nazi stickers with the slogan 'It's okay to be white' were put up around Perth town centre.

In February last year the same message was spotted on sticker in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland, and similar reports have come from York.

Stephen Silverman, Director of Investigations and Enforcement at Campaign Against Antisemitism said: "The implication of this phrase is that Jews cause antisemitism. The accusation that antisemitism is the result of Jews' own behaviour is a slur that has been used to persecute Jews for centuries, culminating in the Holocaust.

"This is offensive not just to Jews but all residents in Edinburgh and thousands of tourists. It is a terrible image for Edinburgh as the Royal Mile is such a popular and iconic tourist attraction. We expect that the authorities to remove the stickers immediately and investigate who is responsible."

A Council spokesperson said: “We’ve alerted our street cleansing, environmental warden and roads teams to be extra vigilant and if they see any of these racist stickers to remove them immediately.”

It comes back to what Chairman Williams is always saying about the quality of the recruits you are reaching. We aren't interested in "mainstream" conservatives much less a bunch of left wing nuts.
