Rick Santorum’s Dinner With a White Nationalist

Racism goes mainstream in the GOP
Wingnuts • Views: 23,867

New polls show that Rick Santorum is now the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination.

And today, Rick Santorum had dinner with an overt white nationalist. I wish I was kidding about this. The Republican Party is openly legitimizing white nationalism at CPAC; this is the year that overt racism went mainstream in the GOP.

Tweeted a little while ago by the ProEnglish Twitter account:

Bob Vandervoort, director of ProEnglish, is the former leader of Chicagoland Friends of the American Renaissance, an absolutely open white supremacist group that often held meetings with the Council of Conservative Citizens. More information: White Nationalist to Speak at CPAC (On How “diversity Is Weakening the American Identity”).

Bob Vandervoort is scheduled to moderate a Thursday afternoon panel at the CPAC 2012 conference, entitled, “The Failure of Multiculturalism: How the Pursuit of Diversity is Weakening the American Identity.” Vandervoort listed his organizational affiliation as executive director of ProEnglish—an English-Only outfit founded by John Tanton. What he left out of his bio is that he was also the organizer of the white nationalist group, Chicagoland Friends of American Renaissance, while he lived in Illinois.

During that period Vandervoort was at the center of much of the white nationalist activity in the region. While he was in charge, Chicagoland Friends of American Renaissance often held joint meetings with the local chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens. He also made appearances at white nationalist events outside Illinois, for instance participating in the 2009 Preserving Western Civilization Conference.

Vandervoort’s position at ProEnglish is not surprising, given his familiarity with the Nativist Establishment. He and several Chicagoland Friends of American Renaissance members attended a March 22, 2005 Federation for American Immigration Reform meeting at the Lincoln Restaurant in Chicago. At a November 13, 2004 FAIR “Midwest Immigration Reform Summit” in Rosemont, Illinois, Vandervoort attended and passed out leaflets to the crowd announcing a local American Renaissance event.

Vandervoort was hired during the autumn of 2011, by the Tanton-founded English-Only group ProEnglish, after the organization lost three other executive directors in less than a year. Shortly after Vandervoort took the job, ProEnglish hired Phil Tignino as the group’s web master and social media coordinator. Tignino was the former head of the Washington State University chapter of the white nationalist college group, Youth for Western Civilization.

I’m just stunned, really. The Republican Party is crossing the Rubicon at this year’s CPAC, dropping all the masks and proudly associating with the absolute dregs of America’s racist underground. Bad, bad craziness is loose.

This really is not that surprising. Like I said the masks are coming off. For years there's been a dark underbelly to the right and they now feel free to crawl out of their holes. Things will only get worse before the election.

Yeah and you know even the legalizing drugs is a load of crap. Paul wants to get rid of federal laws on drugs. Hypothetically, Paul would be just fine with states punishing drug users with life as long as it was the states implementing it not the feds. He's not this freedom lover. He just wants power back in the hands of the states only.

Also, the women especially, or the ones who say they're women, seem to see Paul as this almost saintly caring figure.

Those bigots at ProEnglish provided the lawyer to get a woman, Alejandrina Cabrera, thrown off the ballot in an Arizona community where Spanish is the dominant language. At their council meetings they provide translation for people who don't know Spanish, but political rivals of Ms. Cabrera, who admitted that their English is not so good either, challenged her with the help of white nationalists.

This sounds accurate with my experience. The women I know who like Ron Paul see him as this caring, kind man. I just don't see that. I know he has personally helped people out but I also see a lot of cruelty in him too.

GOP introduces legislation to allow any employer to deny any preventive health service

Under the measure, an insurer or an employer would be able to claim a moral or religious objection to covering HIV/AIDS screenings, Type 2 Diabetes treatments, cancer tests or anything else they deem inappropriate or the result of an “unhealthy” or “immoral” lifestyle. Similarly, a health plan could refuse to cover mental health care on the grounds that the plan believes that psychiatric problems should be treated with prayer.

Amoc just proved that he is NOT fit for command. He does not even know the SCOUT SNIPER logo that has been in use for at least a decade. We need to get REAL Generals back in the military - not these Barbie Dolls that don't back up their men when they have done NOTHING wrong, and don't stand up to the media and jewish anti-us-miliary haters and tell them to go take a flying leap! I am SO ASHAMED of this new Commander! He is PATHETIC! No wonder his snipers are all getting out as fast as they can.

Occupy CPAC breaks into DC offices. 12 arrested.

They're actually being better behaved this time. Some minor stupidity but nothing too bad so far. On a more serious note there's an update on the guy who hit the cop with a bottle...
Police: Charlotte man assaulted officer at Occupy DC camp

Records show the suspect, 29-year-old Jeremiah Daniel DeSousa, is a convicted felon in North Carolina who has absconded from probation here.

...
Eleven people were arrested that day at the encampment, including another man who was charged with assault after he was accused of throwing a bamboo stick at an officer, the Post reports.

Police told the Post that the officer struck with the bottle suffered serious injuries to one of his eyes. He has been released from the hospital, and his vision is improving, police said, but he had not returned to work.
...
Records show DeSousa was convicted in Connecticut on larceny charges in 2006 and 2007. Last year, he was convicted on forgery charges in Iredell County, as well as in Mecklenburg County. He has since absconded from probation, according to the N.C. Department of Correction.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested DeSousa last March and charged him with assault on a female, but the charges were later dismissed.

Good news that the cop isn't going to be permanently blinded.

However, things have changed a great deal since Vietnam, with digital cameras and recorders and a global network that can flash any image or video around the world at the speed of light. Soldiers must be taught that they are on the front lines of a propaganda war as well as a hot war, and they must fight it almost as well as they fight with guns. It sucks to have to add that responsibility to their burden but it is just reality. This kind of crap can prolong wars and get people killed.

Igor Volsky explains:

Under the measure, an insurer or an employer would be able to claim a moral or religious objection to covering HIV/AIDS screenings, Type 2 Diabetes treatments, cancer tests or anything else they deem inappropriate or the result of an “unhealthy” or “immoral” lifestyle. Similarly, a health plan could refuse to cover mental health care on the grounds that the plan believes that psychiatric problems should be treated with prayer.

Right, he was a conservative Christian who saved Spain. Or so I've heard.

re: #185 (~_^)

The open love shown by conservatives (National Review comes to mind) to fascist dictator Franco was vomit-inducing.

Well, Charles' clown car metaphor wasn't, really.

It could probably be a Mini.

He was, uh, an anti-Communist!

Burp.

But, but. He saved Spain from the Nazi destruction!

Yep. By basically being one of them.

One of the reasons I dislike Solzhenitsyn so much (well, aside from him writing a thick antisemitic volume) is his virtual endorsement of Franco in 1970s.

He wasn't an enemy of the enemy. He was a friend who held a "Christian order" intact.

You might be amazed to know that there are many Israelis that actually support Paul based on a ton of misinformation (which, when confronted with piles of evidence to the contrary, his supporters yell variations of "left-wing media lies!!!")...

Are most of these folks Anglim?

It's like bronzy or goldy except that it's made out of iron.
