About Scott Terry - CPAC Slavery Defender and “Disenfranchised Whites” Illustrated
Today, Twitter and the internet were abuzz about some questions and comments delivered by a participant at CPAC during a session sponsored by Tea Party Patriots called “Trump The Race Card: Are You Sick And Tired Of Being Called A Racist When You Know You’re Not One?”
Talking Points Memo reported:
CPAC Event On Racial Tolerance Turns To Chaos As ‘Disenfranchised’ Whites Arrive

March 15, 2013
A CPAC session sponsored by Tea Party Patriots and billed as a primer on teaching activists how to court black voters devolved into a shouting match as some attendees demanded justice for white voters and others shouted down a black woman who reacted in horror.(L-R) Tina Brown, Matthew Heimbach, and Scott Terry
The session, entitled “Trump The Race Card: Are You Sick And Tired Of Being Called A Racist When You Know You’re Not One?” was led by K. Carl Smith, a black conservative who mostly urged attendees to deflect racism charges by calling themselves “Frederick Douglass Republicans.”
Disruptions began when he started accusing Democrats of still being the party of the Confederacy — a common talking point on the right.
“I don’t care how much the KKK improved,” he said. “I’m not going to join the KKK. The Democratic Party founded the KKK.”
Things got heated…
Scott Terry of North Carolina, accompanied by a Confederate-flag-clad attendee, Matthew Heimbach, rose to say he took offense to the event’s take on slavery. (Heimbach founded the White Students Union at Towson University and is described as a “white nationalist” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.)
“It seems to be that you’re reaching out to voters at the expense of young white Southern males,” Terry said, adding he “came to love my people and culture” who were “being systematically disenfranchised.”
Smith responded that Douglass forgave his slavemaster.
“For giving him shelter? And food?” Terry said.
Scott Terry is owner of the website Shotgun Barrel Straight | Truth, Justice and Southern Fire. Here are some screen shots of his website.
I’ll be updating this tonight. Make sure and check out some of his more heinous links to Spirit / Water / Blood and Occidental Dissent. Until then, browse around his website to read about his twisted feelings on Jews or why Kinists feel that “race mixing is wrong.”
Links to Spirit / Water / Blood:
Oddly enough there was an Aaron Dale who posted a link over at Stormfront to an event put together by Scott Terry and Matthew Heimbach:
The infamous (and heroic) Matt Heimbach is setting up a rally in DC for the day of Obama’s inauguration.
Are you angry at the direction America is moving?
Do you want to let the world know that White Westerners will not go down without the dignity of lament? Do you want to voice your frustration around like-minded folk? And most importantly, do you like beer and Irish Pubs? (After the rally we might slip over to one).
If so, please show up! Your voice will be heard!
For more information, see the Facebook Event Page:
I’ll also keep my eye on this thread.
Various media organizations are planning to cover the event … smart, articulate, even-headed, and angry folk, are needed!
Please come, join the facebook event page, and invite all your friends. This needs to be big.
~ If the little bird within our bosom sings sweetly, it is of small consequence if all the owls in the world hoot at us ~ CH Spurgeon
Notice the link and the quote. Scott Terry incidentally is fond of the very same quote:
Reading a friends blog, I came across the following quote from C.H. Spurgeon. So, lest I forget…here it is:
I long for the day when the precepts of the Christian religion shall be the rule among all classes of men, in all transactions. I often hear it said, ‘Do not bring religion into politics.’ This is precisely where it ought to be brought, and set there in the face of all men as on a candlestick. (Metro. Tabernacle, vol. 27)
This flys in the face of modern American evangelicalism which lauds a “hands off” approach to world affairs.
Also, while reading through Spurgeon’s sermons, I found the following hilarious quote:
If the little bird within our bosom sings sweetly, it is of small consequence if all the owls in the world hoot at us! - (Spurgeon volume 27 Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit. Substance of True Religion No. 1598)
Update 3: Back to Scott Terry’s favorite site, Spirit / Water / Blood.
Christian Gray and Scott Terry are joined by Matthew Heimback and Justin Cottrell to discuss current events, mostly centered around recent second amendment attacks.
Another White Nationalist objection to Kinism
Obama’s Executive Orders
Piers Morgan getting smacked around by Larry Pratt and Alex Jones
Lew Rockwell Interview on government and recent gun legislation
Matthew Heimbach and Cottrell join the discussion in the second half.
Screenshots of the more interesting pages at Tribaltheocrat you can also listen to him rant about Christian Apologetics here.
Update 5: Statement from K. Carl Smith as reported by Talking Points Memo; additional links.
Update: A spokesman for the Tea Party Patriots, Jameson Cunningham, e-mailed me a statement from K. Carl Smith on the above events. Here’s the full text.
I was invited by the Tea Party Patriots to conduct a breakout session entitled: “Trump The Race Card” and share the Frederick Douglass Republican Message. In the middle of my delivery, while discussing the 1848 “Women’s Rights Convention,” I was rudely interrupted by a woman working for the Voice of Russia. She abruptly asked me: “How many black women were there?” This question was intentionally disruptive and coercive with no way of creating a positive dialogue.K. Carl Smith
In addition, a young man who wasn’t a Tea Party Patriot, made some racially insensitive comments, he said: “Blacks should be happy that the slave master gave them shelter, clothing, and food.” At the conclusion of the breakout session, I further explained to him the Frederick Douglass Republican Message which he embraced, bought a book, and we left as friends.
Scott Terry is also a writer for an organization called The American Vision. Their purpose as stated in their about page is as follows:
American Vision’s mission is to Restore America to its Biblical Foundation—from Genesis to Revelation. American Vision (AV) has been at the heart of worldview study since 1978, providing resources to exhort Christian families and individuals to live by a Biblically based worldview. Whether by making available educational resources about God & Government, or by tackling the formidable issue of eschatology in the Church, AV is on the front lines, circulating material around the globe to Christians passionate to meet God on His terms in every area of life—right now and for generations to come…
On a final note. To anyone reading this, please do not use this as an excuse to harass, intimidate, or threaten Scott Terry.
Update 6: Reference to Kinism.
Kinism is the belief that the God-ordained social order for mankind is “tribal and ethnic,” and focuses on man’s duty to “love one’s own kind”. Kinists advocate the idea that extended families should live together in large groups. They believe the ideal and normative social order for families - and by extension communities, states and nations - is one defined by race and blood, not propositions or borders, and that this natural order forms the proper and lasting bonds of affection and loyalty for any legitimate society. It is considered an offshoot of Christian Reconstructionism that originated among anti-immigration traditionalists in the Southern United States.
Kinism is a worldview embraced primarily by some paleoconservatives and Christian Reconstructionists, who may subscribe to related views such as Neo-Calvinism, theonomy, postmillennialism, nationalism and protectionism, chivalry, patriarchy, courtship as a substitute for casual dating, “quiverfull” parenthood, homeschooling, agrarianism, distributism and Christian democracy, White separatism, or an exceptionally high view of Western civilization. Some kinists were associated with the League of the South, one member stated “The non-white immigration invasion is the ‘Final Solution’ for the ‘white problem’ of the South, Whites face genocide. We believe the Kinism statement proposes a biblical solution for all races. If whites die out, the South will no longer exist.” The works of Robert Lewis Dabney and Rousas John Rushdoony play a large role in the ideology of many kinists. Joel LeFevre, successor to Samuel T. Francis as editor of the Council of Conservative Citizens’ publication The Citizens Informer endorsed kinism and said “[V]ery simply, without some level of discrimination, no nation … can permanently exist at all.” Kinists claim that a “homogeneous social structure” creates “trust” and “safety”, and that a “common race” is the foundation of a nation, and a “common religion is the foundation of a common moral code.” Kinists reject the theology of the Christian Identity movement.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has described Kinism as “a new strain of racial separatism that wants America broken up into racial mini-states.” Douglas Wilson suggests that it is a “white pride movement” that goes beyond gratitude for one’s culture to “racial animosity” and “mocking and making fun of blacks for their race.” Jonathan Barlow said Kinism is “defining salvation down” with “racial fatalism”, but unlike the Christian Identity movement, which he states is effectively another religion, Kinism is heterodox Christian sect.
Update 7: Added video of incident.
Update 8: Confirmed and Scott Terry responds.
Many of you are visiting this blog due to the recent CPAC controversy, where my friend Matt Heimbach and I, made national news by showing up and asking (in civil, articulate tones, mind you) a few simple questions.
What was our main concern?
There is a lot of rhetoric in the conservative movement about reaching out the mestizo demographic, or reaching out to the homosexuals and blacks.
Our question: why not reach out to whites?
This is exactly what the GOP needs to do, as a matter of fact. Steve Sailer and the guys at VDARE have done an excellent job in pointing this out. Please educate yourself about the Sailer Strategy.
To Conclude, a statement about the “slavery” issue:
As a proud southerner, I hate the malicious denigration of my ancestors and their society.
You disagree with the institution of southern slavery? Fine! All I ask is that, before expecting me to blindly (and naively) accept trendy rhetoric on the topic, that you respect the historical, sociological, and religious complexities of the situation. For instance, Mr. Smith kept implying that slave labor is absolutely free, and it was to this I was objecting (at least, that’s what I was intending to object to).
It’s true, as the economists who advocate for a subjective theory of value have noted, that the entrepreneur’s risks, technology, and managing ability, are indispensable parts of the business enterprise, and it’s no different for the plantation. It’s not as if slaves formed their own logistical infrastructure and took financial risks. So, they were provided with housing, food, medical care, etc. That’s not even a controversial point. We all know it’s true.
Unfortunately, truth isn’t very popular in the GOP at the moment.
Anyway … if the Frederick Douglas Republican movement catches hold, and really does respect the Godly diversity in our society (and doesn’t try to merge all our interests together, or claim that we have no legitimate group interests), then it’s a very positive direction for the tea-party, and I hope to support them in the future.
