Police, prosecutor find 'no crime' after investigating Patriot Front posters in Burlington
Jess Aloe, Burlington Free Press Published 10:00 p.m. ET April 9, 2019

Chittenden County's top prosecutor, Sarah George, found "no crime to prosecute at this time" connected to the postings of five flyers promoting white nationalist group Patriot Front that appeared around Burlington in February, according to the detective who investigated the case.

The case is considered closed, Detective Tom Chenette wrote in a March investigation report. The Burlington Free Press obtained the report through a public records request.

George had not responded by publication time to a telephone message and an email requesting comment.

Posters placed near 'organizations that promote diversity'
Chenette was unable to identify who left the posters bearing statements like "better dead than red" and "America First" outside the Pride Center of Vermont, the Ohavi Zadek synagogue and the Burlington Free Press, as well as two other locations.

But he noted that the posters were placed near "organizations that promote diversity and inclusivity, which would cause a reasonable person who is a member or sympathizer of those places to feel threatened."

Police pulled security footage from several businesses near the posters, according to the detective's notes. The postings were likely all made at night, he wrote.

The incidents are considered "bias incidents" and reported to the Attorney General's Office, Chenette wrote.

Reporting bias incidents
Attorney General T.J. Donovan instructed local police departments to begin reporting all bias incidents to his office in January. He rolled out the initiative while announcing his office was declining to file any criminal charges in the case of former Bennington state Rep. Kiah Morris.

Morris resigned from her legislative seat last summer after receiving what Donovan described as racist harassment — but said messages received by Morris were protected by the First Amendment and failed to rise to the level of a "true threat."

Burlington Deputy Police Chief Jon Murad described the Patriot Front stickers left around Burlington as vandalism in a statement in February, but police documents show that no financial damage occurred to any of the structures.

What is the Patriot Front?
A Texas man, Thomas Rosseau, founded Patriot Front in the wake of the 2017 Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, wrote that "Patriot Front is the direct descendant of neo-Nazi group Vanguard America," in a recent intelligence report.

Patriot Front held a small demonstration in Burlington in February 2018. After the plans for the flash rally leaked, hundreds showed up in South Burlington to counter-protest.

Last month, the group shared a video of three masked people unfurling a banner with "Not stolen, conquered" and an outline of the United States from a Burlington parking garage.

Because the cops couldn't find the activists, there's no crime! Very interesting. But if they find someone, anyone who might fit their accusations..... well, let them take their case to the Vermont Supreme Court! That's about what it takes to protect free speech in that state these days.

Police investigate political signs as possible racist and homophobic crimes
The Finland Nation First campaign event took place outside a Helsinki shopping centre.

By News Now Staff - April 9, 2019

Police in Helsinki have launched an investigation to determine whether some political campaign banners have broken the law.

They’re looking specifically into the leader and a candidate from the small far right party Finnish Nation First, and their recent election stand outside Helsinki’s Kamppi shopping centre.

Banners for Marco de Wit and Kristiina Brandt read “immigrant invaders out” using the derogatory slang term “matut”.

Underneath a picture of each candidate was the slogan “homos get back in the closet”.

Now, police say the campaign material was hateful, and aimed at discriminating against immigrants and sexual minorities.

The investigation will determine whether or not the incident meets the standards for charging a crime of ethnic agitation.

While freedom of speech during an election is an important part of Finland’s political process, hate speech of any kind is not allowed.

In March, police said they would investigate to see whether a similar slogan about “immigrant invaders” on the side of a car used by Finns Party candidate Teuvo Hakkarainen also breached the law.

Hakkarainen recently had his punishment increased, from a criminal conviction of assaulting a female MP in Parliament, after a drunken Christmas party.
The nameless author of this tract lies, if "hate" speech is 'not allowed', there is no freedom of speech. It's good to see Finns speaking out even if they will be incarcerated for doing so, a lesson many Whites in America should learn.

White Nationalist Signs Posted Across Miami University
April 12, 2019 By Aiden Pink

MacCracken Hall at Miami University.

At least four signs promoting a white supremacist group were posted across the campus of Miami University in Ohio in the last week, The Miami Student reported Wednesday.

The signs endorsed the white supremacist group Patriot Front. One featured a map of the United States with the words “not stolen, conquered”; another said “report all illegal aliens; they are criminals” alongside the phone number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Three of the posters were pasted to light poles, while one was tacked to the bulletin board of the library before being taken down.

“Clearly we, the university, need to do more,” Kelly Kimple, the director of the university’s Office of Diversity Affairs, told the Student.

Patriot Front is a white supremacist organization whose leader participated in the “Unite the Right” march in Charlottesville in 2017, according to the Anti-Defamation League. They frequently post their propaganda materials on college campuses across the country.

More than 1,000 Jewish undergraduate students attend the university, according to the Forward College Guide.

Residents want to end 'racist' pamphlets
3:19 pm on 11 April 2019

Leigh-Marama McLachlan, Māori Correspondent
@leighmarama leigh-marama.mclachlan@radionz.co.nz
Auckland residents who received "racist" pamphlets say the timing, not long after the Christchurch mosque attacks, is terrible and one is trying to shut down the distribution.

The group One Law for All have once again sent out pamphlets, this time to Point Chevalier, that state that colonisation was good overall for Māori and that there is no such thing as a Treaty partnership.

They call for the Waitangi Tribunal, Māori voting roll and Māori wards to be abolished, and were an unwelcome find for Sophie Barclay last week.

"I was just on my way to work and clearing the mail and I received what I would describe as racist paraphernalia in my letterbox," she said.

"It was really upsetting because it was basically leaning to the alt-right and spreading historically inaccurate views."

Te Aweawe Ruawai moved to Point Chevalier two months ago and was so devastated by the content of the pamphlet that her grandfather tore it to pieces.

She said the community was predominantly older Pākehā, and being Māori with a tāmoko, she now felt wary of what her neighbours thought about Māori.

"When I received that pamphlet, it made me a bit scared to be honest," she said.

"The people in my community could use that information against Māori and take it in a way that that is the whakaaro that we should be using in society today."

Police said they were aware of the pamphlet and concerns of members of the community, but there was no evidence an offence has been committed.

But Ms Barclay said the material was objectionable and their concerns should be taken more seriously after the terrorist massacre in Christchurch last month.

"It's really sad, given the context of what has happened in Christchurch, that people think it is an appropriate time to send out pamphlets like this when people are really aware of the kind of hatred that can arise out of this type of division."

Ms Barclay tried to trace the bank account and PO Box address on the pamphlets and complained to New Zealand Post, the group's bank, and the Auckland Council in a bid to shut them down but nothing has come of it.

"People need to consider it in terms of policy, where if someone like this group has been found to be sending just racist, hurtful, and divisive material then there should be a clause that their PO box should be shut down without further notice."

Ms Ruawai said people often use the guise of free speech to promote hate speech, and she was growing tired of anti-Māori sentiment continuing to be allowed to be published.

Te Mahurehure Marae chair Christine Panapa said she was not happy that the pamphlets were going around in her community and the timing was dreadful.

"It was very very sad what happened to our country but people like this ride on the back of what has happened and all they are wanting is to be noticed," she said.

"At the end of the day, if we are going to take notice of what they are saying, then we are not going to get anywhere."

The same pamphlets were distributed in Wellington two years ago, prompting local MP Peter Dunne to decry them as racist propaganda.

The One Law for All group declined an interview but said in an email there was nothing in the pamphlet that implies alt-right or white supremacist views.

The spokesperson, who identified himself only as Simon, said they sent the pamphlets out to utilise stock.

He said anyone linking the pamphlets to the Christchurch terror attack was being malicious.

The Human Rights Commission would not confirm whether it had received a complaint, but said content in pamphlets is generally not covered under the Human Rights Act.

It said the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act, Advertising Standards Authority and the Office of Film and Literature Classification, are potential options for raising concerns regarding publications such as pamphlets.
This would be akin to someone in the US making a leaflet stating that slavery was good for Blacks . Which it was, considering their former masters on the African continent, but was a very raw deal for Whites as the mixing of races occurred. Definitely a bad example of White activism here.

Letter: College campus is no place for white supremacist posters

Posted Apr 12, 2019 at 3:01 AM

In March, President Trump said white nationalist were “a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess.” This morning, I discovered posters plastered all over Worcester State University from the neo-Nazi, white supremacist group the Patriot Front.

The posters depict an American eagle swooping down on a red hammer and sickle with the words “NOT HERE, NOT EVER.” The contact email uses a Nazi slogan.

As a Worcester resident for more than 40 years, I’ve never seen something like this here. Thankfully, I also saw posters at Worcester State proclaiming, “Hate Is Not Welcome Here.”

Vigorous action is needed to tell neo-Nazis that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the entire United States rejects their racist ideology.

Scott Schaeffer-Duffy

Worcester
Not quite the entire United States, Scott. Not by far! Millions of Whites are very concerned that your "ideology" of White genocide via swamping us with non-Whites, degrading our culture to the point where it's totally ignored in schools throughout the land, and the forced acceptance of degenerate practices such as miscegenation and homosexuality is a recipe for disaster. That some want to do something about it is just the tip of the iceberg, buddy. The Saxon is slow to anger, but when his full wrath is aroused...

Police investigate after white-nationalism posters pop up at Newmarket school
About 30 provocative posters were found April 8 at Newmarket High School
NEWS Apr 09, 2019 by Dina Al-Shibeeb Newmarket Era

Police want to find out the source of posters glorifying white nationalism or right-wing extremism that surfaced at Newmarket High School, the York Region District School Board and the Canadian Anti-Hate Network said April 9.

About 30 posters were found in and around the high school Monday morning, ahead of the Say No To Hate event scheduled to take place in the evening, Canadian Anti-Hate Network chair Bernie M. Farber said.

“We were disappointed to see that our school was subjected to these white nationalist posters,” York Region District School Board said.

“The posters were noticed by a staff member early in the morning and they immediately called York Regional Police.

"The posters were removed so as to not cause any hurt to students or staff members."

The YRDSB said the posters are now “part of a police investigation.”

The posters allege that the Monday event was inundated with “anti-European hatred” and subtly normalizes — under the disguise of humanitarianism — the gradual demise of European Canadians.

Farber said it’s important to "warn parents" about white nationalism and how it’s "grabbing at their children".

"It’s not something they can ignore," he said. "It’s up to parents to educate their kids."

Farber suspects the culprits to be either students or people who have access to the school.

Farber with Elizabeth Moore, a former white nationalist radicalized teen, and Evan Balgord, the executive director of the Canadian Anti-Hate Network and an investigative journalist, shared their insights about the rise of white nationalists with dozens of concerned parents and educators.

During his speech, Balgord said posters like those found at the school are designed to make “people react to them,” adding that's how extremist groups target young Canadians.

Dubbing it "surprising" and "scary", Balgord said statistics reveal that "the age group that’s doing the most hate crime is kids under 18".

Balgord described these groups as deadly because their ideology not only supports deporting non-whites but could also incite mass murder.

These groups, he said, want Canada to be at least 96 per cent white.
It's true, posters can hurt people. I HATE paper cuts!

So if an ideology "could also incite mass murder," does that mean the Jews' program of "diversity" and "multiculturalism" causing White genocide should be outlawed too? What if we just outlaw Jews (especially the Bernie Farber types) in areas where Whites live? That would be a better solution, yes?

Incidentally, "at least 96% White" isn't good enough. 100% is the National Alliance's non-negotiable goal.

Lew-Port school officials 'sickened' over flyer
INCIDENT: Mailer takes aim at school for minority representation of staff, basketball team.
By Philip Gambini and Benjamin Joe philip.gambini@niagara-gazette.com Apr 11, 2019

LEWISTON — In a statement issued Thursday, officials at the Lewiston-Porter Central School District said it was "the target of a vile, defamatory and racist flyer."

School administrators reacted with "disgust and condemnation" when they were made aware of the printing on Thursday, the statement said. The flyer, a copy of which was reviewed by the Niagara Gazette, was mailed from the City of Buffalo and postmarked April 9.

"As a school district that stresses the importance of acceptance and tolerance and celebrates and embraces diversity, this material sickens us," the statement said.

The flyer was printed on a single sheet of paper. In large black letters at the top of the page are the words "Aryan Revival." Immediately below the text are swastikas and the phrases: "Welcome to Racist Lewiston" and "spring membership drive."

Farther down the page are three statements: "more blacks on the basketball team than Lew-Port teachers;" "more blacks on the basketball team than Lewiston residents;" and "If you can't play basketball, stay out of Lewiston."

"Lewiston residents interested in becoming members of the Aryan Revival please contact (a telephone number that is not in service)," the flyer said.

At the bottom of the page, amid other statements, is a manipulated image of what appears to be a cotton field in which African-Americans are standing near basketballs. In the background of the image is the figure of Adolf Hitler performing a Nazi Party salute, a basketball hoop and a sign, reading, "Lewiston-Porter High School."

The district's statement said officials are in "contact with our school attorney, the district attorney and law enforcement" regarding the flyer.

"Should we discover the author of this filth, we will seek damages to the fullest extent of the law," the statement said.

Lewiston Police were among the agencies that have been contacted by the district regarding the flyer. According to Town Police Chief Frank Previte, the department received numerous reports about the flyer, but the document did not contain any material that constituted a threat or another violation of law.

"It's not advocating any type of belief system or thought," he said. "It’s more calling this area racist than calling somebody to racism."

District Superintendent Paul Casseri, who said he was abroad in China on a promotional trip for the schools, was reached by telephone Thursday.

"I am absolutely upset about and sickened by it," he said, describing the flyer as an attempt to label the town a "racist community."

Casseri suggested the event bears resemblance to a different set of printings that appeared in Lewiston two years ago. The incidents are similar, down to the font used, he said.

In May of 2017, flyers appeared at homes in Lewiston that said, "The Aryan Resistance is proud to endorse Board of Education candidates," listing the names of two individuals who subsequently disavowed the printing and the group.

"Over the last 50 years the Lewiston-Porter Central School District has compiled an exemplary record of keeping its school (sic) white," the prior printing said.

In addition, the document said, "The effort to keep blacks out of your community begins by keeping them out of the classroom." The flyer included an image of an eagle atop a swastika, the formal symbol of the Nazi Party.

The Anti-Defamation League – a group founded in 1913 to with a mission to "stop the defamation of the Jewish people, and to secure justice and fair treatment to all" – does not catalog a specific group called the "Aryan Resistance," but has documented the "the Aryan Resistance Movement." The league describes it as being primarily a prison gang "founded in the 1990s by inmates Tony Adams and Michael Holdridge."

Two months earlier in 2017, Lewiston was papered with "White Lives Matter" fliers in a effort led by Scott Lacy, who gave an interview with a local TV station at the time. The flyers were left inside weighted baggies with other printings in driveways on Mohawk Street, Chicora Drive and Lower River Road.

Lacy is a documented affiliate of with the Aryan Renaissance Society, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the historic Alabama-based civil rights not-for-profit advocacy organization.

The SPLC has described the Aryan Renaissance Society as a “neo-Nazi” hate group, while calling White Lives Matter another “neo-Nazi group that is growing into a movement as more and more white supremacist groups take up its slogans and tactics."
Another presstitute quoting the criminal and discredited Jewish ADL & SPLC.

An amusing tactic-- openly endorsing politicians.

White Supremacist Group Stickers Found Along Metairie Rd.
Jenn Bentley - Editor-in-Chief

April 12th 2019

Stickers advertising the white supremacist group Identity Evropa have been found along Metairie Rd.

Identity Evropa, also known as the American Identity Movement, is a white supremacist and neo-Nazi group that was established in early 2016. They are identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.

According to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), hate groups like Identity Evropa have increased recruiting tactics like stickering and leafleting since 2018. Last year, the group participated in a “bannering” of the Andrew Jackson statue in Jackson Square. The ADL has labeled them as one of the most active hate groups in Louisiana.

The stickers were found by members of The Creole Alliance, a local film maker’s group. Their mission is to “make content for change” in Louisiana and in the U.S. According to the Alliance, the stickers span from at least the Causeway to Labarre along Metairie Rd. This stretch includes popular spots such as the new Ruby Slipper Cafe and Rock N Sake.

The appearance of white supremacist propaganda comes just days after the arrest of 21-year-old Holden Matthews for the arson of three historically black churches in St. Landry Parish, just two hours away. Matthews is the son of St. Landry Sherrif deputy Roy Matthews.

While Louisiana State Fire Marshal Cheif Butch Browning has speculated that it was Matthews’ association with Norwegian “black metal” music that lead to the church burnings, many feel this ignores the racial history of church burnings in the southern U.S.

Burning African-American churches has been a common tactic of intimidation since the time of the civil rights movement. From 1955 to today, more than 71 primarily black churches have been firebombed, burned, or attacked in the U.S., mainly in the deep south. Churches were often used as centers of organization for civil rights protests and other actions. They also serve as a center of culture and symbols of unity for the black community, making them popular targets for white supremacists.

Publisher’s Note: At Big Easy Magazine, we have always rejected white supremacy and all forms of hate. We would encourage all New Orleanians to join us in spreading a message of tolerance. If you would like to support our efforts, please purchase one of our “Reject White Supremacy” t-shirts available in our shop.
Hmm, stickers are mentioned alongside the story of burning churches where Blacks gather. False equivalency anyone? At least the Big Sleazy is honest about their bias against Whites.

City removing white supremacy posters
Nathan Harris, Zanesville Times Recorder Published 4:05 p.m. ET March 6, 2019
Sign policy prohibits signs in the public right-of-way

ZANESVILLE - A number of posters promoting Patriot Front, a white supremacy group, have popped up around downtown Zanesville.

A tweet from Patriot Front's official account highlights some of the posters, which have been plastered on lamp posts and telephone poles.

#PatriotFront activists placed posters around Zanesville, Ohio. pic.twitter.com/LGPZxANekU

— Patriot Front (@PatriotFront2) February 28, 2019

Two of the signs feature an outline of the United States, with "Not Stolen, Conquered" and a link to the organization's website accompanying it. Another encourages people to report undocumented immigrants to the Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement tip line.

Despite the signs being up for at least a week, city officials had not received any comments regarding them and were unaware of their existence.

Matthew Schlay, associate planner for the city's Community Development Department, was shocked when the Times Recorder approached him about them Wednesday.

"These signs will be sent immediately to the street department" for removal, Schlay said.

The signs on lamp posts and traffic poles violate the city's sign policy that prohibits signs in the public right-of-way. The removal, Schlay stressed, is not due to the content of the signs.

"Content is not what's getting them," he said. "In this situation, because of where the sign is located, we don't permit those anywhere, no matter where it is."

In December, the city updated its sign regulation policy to comply with a 2015 Supreme Court ruling prohibiting municipalities from considering a sign's content when approving sign permits.

The signs around town do not have any clearly-labeled sign permits.

Patriot Front, a Texas-based organization, is one of the most active white supremacy groups, the Anti-Defamation League reports, with four separate incidents of propaganda distribution in Columbus in 2018. No incidents have been reported in or near Muskingum County since the ADL began tracking incidents in 2002.

White supremacy propaganda has been on the rise in recent years across the nation, as groups are becoming more visible. The ADL noted a record-setting 1,187 incidents of posted white supremacist propaganda in 2018, compared to 421 the year before, according to a new report from the organization.
