On Halloween weekend in Lithicum, Maryland, representatives of the racist hate group VDARE will be holding a convention as part of the “H L Mencken Club.” The top billing on the HL Mencken Club’s blog for this event is VDARE leader Peter Brimelow, who will be appearing with VDARE racial writer Steven Sailer, and Patrick Buchanan among others.
On August 31, 2009 on the 70th anniversary of the beginning of World War II, Patrick Buchanan wrote an article, arguing how misunderstood Adolf Hitler was, titled “70 Years After – Did Hitler Really Want War?” (promoted on VDARE web site)
The event is scheduled for Friday October 30 through Sunday November 1 at the: The Holiday Inn (BWI), 890 Elkridge Landing Rd, Linthicum, MD 21090. Please let the Holiday Inn BWI know how you feel about their planned hosting of this hate group speakers’ conference (Hotel Front Desk: 1-410-859-8400, Hotel Fax: 1-410-684-6778).
The VDARE Foundation has been listed as a “white nationalist” hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) , a designation that Peter Brimelow states that he is “proud” to have. VDARE’s web site has also been described by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as “a Web site that features the work of racists, anti-Semites, and anti-immigrant figures.”
On the VDARE web site, President Obama has most recently been described as the “Half-Blood Prince” by VDARE author Steven Sailer; Peter Brimelow praises this as part of “Steve’s scholarly interest in racial differences.” VDARE’s Sailer has used the website for a litany of articles regarding race, including articles focusing on issues such as the IQ of black Americans, “white guilt,” “race denial,” endless articles on “minority mortgage meltdown,” “Anti-White Discrimination,” “Anti-White Populism,” and “On What The Census Bureau’s Projected White Minority Will Mean For America.” VDARE’s Sailer has called Barack Obama a “wigger,” and VDARE’s Peter Brimelow calls Sailer a “genius.”
VDARE defends “white separatist” Jared Taylor as someone who once would have been “called an American patriot.” “White separatist” Jared Taylor leads the American Renaissance racial hate group whose past recent speakers have included former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
On June 11, 2009, the day after the Holocaust Memorial Museum shooting in Washington DC by accused gunman Von Brunn, VDARE’s Peter Brimelow posted an article — not condemning the racial and religious hatred documented in Von Brunn’s writings and actions — but condemning those who seek to prevent hate crimes. In Peter Brimelow’s view, “drunk-driving immigrants, especially Mexicans,” are no different than those committing hate crimes based on their institutionalized hate. On June 11, 2009, while many, including Responsible for Equality And Liberty (R.E.A.L.), were mourning the death of brave black security guard Stephen Tyrone Johns, who died preventing Von Brunn from committing even a greater loss of life at the Holocaust Memorial Museum, VDARE’s Peter Brimelow was only focused on condemning those who seek to prevent future hate crimes.
VDARE’s Peter Brimelow concluded his article by asking: “The real question about the Holocaust Memorial Museum shootings: what drove James von Brunn, by all accounts an intelligent man who served his country honorably in World War II, to this terrible end?”
What type of organization views an individual accused of terrorist murder, with a history of racial supremacism, linked to neo-Nazis, and a history of Holocaust denial — as “an intelligent man” — the very day after his attack on innocent people? ADL and SPLC have clearly answered this question: a racist hate group.
Joining this group at the H L Mencken club convention will be: NY Times’ Thomas E. Woods, Jr., Patrick Deneen, Gene Edward Veith, E. Christian Kopff, James Kurth, Lee Congdon, Kevin Gutzman, George Csatary, John Derbyshire, Richard Spencer, Jeff Frazee, professor and VDARE contributor Paul Gottfried (Gottfried: “Did Pre-MLK America Really Need Redemption?”), and “Youth for Western Civilization” (YWC) leader Kevin DeAnna.
SPLC has charged that VDARE’s Marcus Epstein is linked to YWC, Kevin DeAnna states this is not accurate. YWC events have previously been promoted on the American Renaissance racial hate group web site, something that YWC’s Kevin DeAnna has told R.E.A.L. that he has known nothing about.
R.E.A.L. has now contacted YWC’s Kevin DeAnna again to see if he will not attend this Lithicum, Maryland event based on the participation by these VDARE racist hate group leaders. We will keep you posted on his reply.
