Residents of Cincinnati neighborhood stunned as white nationalist propaganda pops up around town

Residents of Cincinnati neighborhood stunned as white nationalist propaganda pops up around town

September 5, 2019

By Tana Ganeva

The American Identity Movement is a white nationalist group formerly known as Identity Evropa. The group rebranded to sound more innocuous after the deadly Charlottesville, Virginia rally.

“More than any other white nationalist group operating today, Identity Evropa has attempted to frame their views in ways that appeal to mainstream conservative audiences,” explains the Southern Poverty Law Center. “They downplay the extreme nature of their ideas, like referring to their ideal society as “ethno-pluralistic” rather than segregated.”

And it looks like the group is trying to recruit in Clifton, Ohio. WCPO reports that people in the area have found stickers bearing the group’s logos. A woman told the station about encountering their materials.

“I was heading to the CVS to get some medicine, and I noticed as I was going on the street toward the grocery that there were two stickers on (a pair of newspaper stands), two stickers that said American Identity Movement,” she told the station.

“It was a little surprising to see it there. I’d only lived here about six months or so, but it’s kind of shocking. I usually feel safe walking around this area, but knowing that there was someone around that area that was putting up those stickers really made me feel uncomfortable.”

They call on whites to “Embrace your identity.” WCPO reports that promotional materials for Patriot Front appeared in the nearby Ohio town of Fort Thomas.

“The time of the Republic has passed in America as the system grows too weak to perform its duty. … The damage done to this nation and its people will not be fixed if every issue requires the approval and blessing from the dysfunctional American democratic system,” the group writes in its manifesto. “Democracy has failed in this once great nation.” Like the American Patriot Movement, they use patriotic imagery to promote a white ethnostate that excludes people of color and Jews.

Other members of the community were also alarmed to find the group’s presence in the town.

“It’s unfortunate that people have gotten to a point of hatred on that level,” a man told WCPO of Patriot Front. “I don’t think this has anything to do with what side of the aisle you’re on. It just has to do with hatred of people for no reason and trying to prey on people that don’t think for themselves.”
The obligatory quotes from the Semitically Correct parrots about "hate" are prevalent---and note that no rebuttal from the American Identity people was even sought by the presstitutes at this website.

Neo-Nazi stickers on lamp-posts: Grimsby man is jailed {for two and a half years!!}

5 September 2019

A man who posted neo-Nazi stickers on lamp-posts has been jailed for 30 months.

Nathan Worrell, 46, was found guilty of eight offences of stirring up racial hatred at Grimsby Crown Court.

During the trial, Worrell denied the Holocaust took place and said he had been a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

He was jailed for seven years and three months in 2008 for possessing bomb-making materials and waging a hate campaign against a mixed-race couple.

Worrell described himself in court as an "ethno-nationalist" and said he did not believe in "diversity or multiculturalism".

A police raid on his home in Scott Close, Grimsby found clothing, photographs, fridge magnets and pin badges bearing Nazi symbolism.

He posted his home-made stickers with highly offensive comments on lamp-posts and street furniture in Grimsby and Hull.
'Abhorrent'

Worrell defended his actions in court as freedom of speech

Sentencing, Judge Paul Watson QC said Worrell was "wedded to the cause of far right nationalism and national socialism".

The judge made it clear he was not sentencing for political views "however abhorrent they may be".

He told Worrell: "Your conduct went far beyond the limits of freedom of opinion and expression which the law permits."

Det Ch Supt Martin Snowden from Counter Terrorism Policing North East, said: "These offences clearly show that Worrell has not learnt or changed his behaviour despite serving a previous prison sentence.

"By obtaining and distributing these hateful messages Worrell is inciting hatred, potentially threatening public safety and security as well as the stability of the local community."
Liar, liar judge Watson. Judges are a mix of politician and lawyer---and here it's proved. On one hand he excoriates Worrell for his beliefs and on the other hand says his sentence wasn't for political views.

"potentially threatening public safety" sounds a lot like prior restraint. Some "law" they have in the UK.

Police Chief: White Supremacist Flyers Circulating In Niagara County
By Spectrum News Staff Western New York
PUBLISHED 10:59 PM ET Sep. 03, 2019

The Lewiston police chief tells Spectrum News there have been 10 to 15 reports of people being mailed racist flyers, calling people to join a white supremacist gathering at the Peach Festival this weekend.

Based on the postmark, the flyers may have been sent from the Rochester area, he said.

Law enforcement could not confirm how many individuals are involved in the circulation of the fliers.

He said he's consulted with the district attorney and nothing criminal can be investigated in the matter as it falls under free speech.

Peach Fest organizers said they are aware of the issue.

The police chief said there is no reason to be concerned as law enforcement has secured this weekend's event.

UNR Responds To White Supremacist Fliers On Campus
By Noah Glick • 6 hours ago

As the University of Nevada, Reno kicked off its third week of classes, students were greeted by more than just homework. There were also fliers from a white supremacy group scattered throughout campus.

The fliers were posted in at least five buildings Monday, with most being taken down by the university within a few hours. This comes after a swastika was discovered last week in the stairwell of the new Wolf Pack Tower, a residence hall at Circus Circus. It's not known whether the symbol was there before or after students moved in.

Eloisa Gordon-Mora is the university's diversity and inclusion officer. She says this type of white supremacist propaganda isn't unique to UNR, and is a reflection of society as a whole.

"Of course, one feels vulnerable, and as a woman of color, I definitely feel the sense of intimidation and vulnerability; however, precisely that's what these hate-enticing groups count on," she says.

Gordon-Mora says dealing with these issues is complex, as university officials need to balance the rights of free speech with the consequences of hateful rhetoric.

Stephanie Serrano contributed to this report.

Editor's Note: KUNR withheld the name of the group and declined to showcase detailed photos of the fliers as it is our goal to educate the community about important issues without elevating the message of hate groups.

As a point of disclosure, the license for this station is owned by the Nevada System of Higher Education.
A more accurate version of the "editor's note:" It's KUNR's goal to control the narrative and to never permit any opposing thoughts, ideas, or facts to be broadcast through their echo chamber.

White nationalism stickers found in La Crosse neighborhood
By: Mal Meyer

Posted: Aug 23, 2019 06:57 PM CDT Updated: Aug 23, 2019 11:09 PM CDT

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Signs for a white nationalist group are popping up around a La Crosse neighborhood. The stickers promoting the Patriot Front have some community members concerned.

The Patriot Front is one of the white nationalist groups that posts the most flyers around the nation, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The messages don't seem like much until you look deeper at the group's ideology.

Tyrell Luebker was on his way to work Tuesday when he spotted one on a light pole.

"I just happened to look at it, and it said, 'Better Dead Than Red,'" said Luebker, who works at Recovery Room

He thought it was a reference to communism.

"At first, I just thought it was, you know, a joke," Luebker said.

He found a second sticker across the street on another light pole. But when he sent it to a friend, she pointed out it was for white nationalists.

The Patriot Front broke off from the neo-Nazi group Vanguard America in the aftermath of the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

"For the fourth year in a row, hate groups in our country have increased, reaching a record high of 1,020 in 2018," said Heidi Beirich, SPLC intelligence project director, in a video.

The hate group's manifesto says anyone who is not of European descent cannot be American. They're also known to chant "Blood and soil" during protests, a reference to Nazism.

"That's not what this neighborhood is about. It's not what La Crosse is about or Wisconsin in general," Lubker said.

He said the neighborhood is very diverse-- and there are people from a wide variety of backgrounds.

"We need to tell people about it, and we need to make sure that it's known and that people like that aren't allowed to do that in our community," Luebker said.

After taking down the stickers, he posted photos to Facebook and the website Reddit. He hopes to bring the hate speech to light, but not in the way these groups want.

"Not by promoting it, but by having people have a conversation about it and against it," Lubker said.

Lubker said staff have checked the Recovery Room's security cameras to try to see who put them up. But so far, they haven't had any luck.

The La Crosse Police Department said putting up the stickers would be considered vandalism.

Iowa, you are racist

Residents in an Iowa City neighborhood said they received copies of this flier in January. The leaflets included the logo and web address for National Alliance, which advocates “a government wholly committed to the service of our race and subject to no non-Aryan influence.”

In a Chinese restaurant in Des Moines, I heard a woman angrily asking a waiter for a better spoon. The spoon she’d been given is known as a duck spoon and has a wide flat bottom and a short handle. She didn’t want it. “Just a normal spoon,” she said. “For this restaurant,” the waiter replied, “this is the normal spoon.”

The moment the waiter walked away, I heard the woman say it. She said that phrase so commonly spoken by those protesting their innocence, while still committing the crime: “I’m not racist, but …” Her complaint was about the spoon, the design, how she didn’t like it, how she hated being forced to use them in Japanese and Chinese restaurants. Her frustration with the spoon spilled over into the attitude of the server and the restaurant as a whole. Yes, it was actually racist — these ideas of what made one utensil better, one utensil worse, and what should be “normal.”

Racism is the American the infection we refuse to diagnose. Recently, the New York Times 1619 Project sought to lay bare the racism that runs through the double helix of our national DNA. In response to the project, lawmakers and conservative pundits lashed out. Because to see the American enterprise as something inherently infected with racism, is to admit that our ideas of freedom and equality for all were never meant to be for all.

What would happen if we stopped protesting our innocence and instead came square with our crimes?

This reality is reflected on a local level. Iowa is 90 percent white. And our whiteness didn’t happen by accident. In his 2005 book, Sundown Towns, historian and sociologist James W. Loewen reveals that until very recently the prejudices of the Jim Crow South swept across all of America, including Iowa, where rules — formal and informal — kept people of color out of towns at night.

And while our rules may have changed, white bias persists. A 2016 report found that Iowa has the greatest racial disparity in prison populations. Additionally, an ACLU report points out, “Iowa has the largest racial disparity in the country of arrests in marijuana possession.” Iowa has only four lawmakers who are people of color.

Every time Congressman Steve King says something overtly racist, our media is deluged by lawmakers and citizens saying King doesn’t represent us or them, or anyone. That we aren’t racist, but … but, he’s here. But it’s his actual job to be a representative of his district and he keeps getting reelected. The Republican Party refuses to do anything about him.

And there is no “I’m not racist, but …” when it comes to our president, whose comments are not just misunderstandings of the “liberal media.” Not when he calls Mexican men rapists and tells four minority lawmakers to go back to where they came from. Not when he puts immigrants in cages on the border.

I am told people don’t like being called racist, but I’ve never seen the point in remarketing hate as a more palatable version of itself. Hate is just hate, even if it sits in the White House or next to me at a restaurant.

So, yes Iowa, you are racist. When schools and neighborhoods are built on racial divides. When Waterloo and Cedar Falls regularly rank as one of the worst cities for black Americans. When “whites only” fliers are posted all over Iowa City. And when, as I was looking to buy a house in Cedar Rapids, Realtors quietly whispered about “crime statistics” in “certain neighborhoods” and warned me, a white, single lady away. To insist “we are not racist, but …” would be to ignore the reality of the world we created.

What would happen if we stopped protesting our innocence and instead came square with our crimes? And I wonder too what would happen if the next time in a restaurant I wasn’t just a silent observer to racism? Because polite quiet is also how the infection spreads.

Jewish community in Indianapolis discovers antisemitic flyers posted on buildings
Posted 2:18 PM, September 13, 2019, by FOX59 Web, Updated at 02:29PM, September 13, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Member of the the Jewish community in Indianapolis found antisemitic flyers posted on several buildings Friday morning.

The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) said in a statement that “concerning flyers, which were antisemitic in nature” were discovered on several Jewish communal institutions.

JCRC said the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) was notified and an investigation has been opened.

All campus facilities are operating as normal and suspicious activity should be reported to police by calling 911, according to JCRC.

IMPD said it has reported the incident to the Aries State Repository as a bias crime, and it is being investigated through the IMPD North District.

JCRC posted this statement on Facebook: <Jewish blather deleted, we've all heard this before>
I'm going to guess it's the Daily Stormer fans again. This is their M.O.

Going to the trouble of talking to Jews using flyers, stickers, or whatever might get some media attention but is otherwise pointless. This is not recommended activism.

East Central ISD Investigating Flyers Promoting Hate Group
By Spectrum News Staff San Antonio
PUBLISHED 8:22 AM CT Sep. 12, 2019

SAN ANTONIO – The East Central Independent School District discovered two flyers on campus promoting a hate group this week.

*Open investigation by several agencies
*Found by school through social media

According to school officials, there is an open investigation with East Central Police Department and they are working with federal, state and local agencies.

In a statement, East Central ISD said:
“This behavior is not tolerated at East Central ISD and not reflective of our core beliefs and inclusive environment. The individual will be caught and punished to the fullest extent of the law.”[/color]

The two flyers were found by a staff member and a student. The student took a picture of the flyer and sent it to his mother. The mother posted it on her social media and that is how the school found out about it.
Wow, getting the Federal and state authorities involved in the distribution of a few flyers. Overkill.

So they're intolerant of some people and their message but are hosting an "inclusive environment" eh? Isn't there a word for this?

Too bad this news agency cropped our Alliance Web address from the so-called hateful "Love Your Race" flier. At least they give our name and that we have a Web site so that the more diligent of the 90% White Iowans can search to find us.

The articles below about the KKK fliers and the ones placed for Jews to see, by those you suggest are put out by the Daily Stormer crowd, unfortunately, get mixed in with the more thoughtful NA fliers that are distributed, and we get painted with the same broad "hate group" brush as those other demonized outfits. Some, but not enough, see through this.

The National Alliance material is only for our people: White people. Iowa is 90% White and they are under assault with an anti-White message in every form of media, by their churches and by their politicians. Representative Steve King is no "White supremacist," but even he gets "the treatment." Good for him. He has more courage to say what he does than the rest of those anti-White representatives in "our" Congress. I believe he was stripped of his committee memberships by obsequious GOP leadership for his outspokenness.

Would you prefer a separate thread for Alliance outreach activity that makes the news? We can't control presstitutes from all over deceptively lumping us in with other groups in their rags, but we can shape the direction of how news is presented here to make sure the distinctions are made honestly.
