Nativist ‘Environmentalists’ Enraged at Exclusion From Conference
Anti-immigrant extremists are furious over a decision by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to exclude Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS), a nativist organization masquerading as an environmental group, from its annual meeting.
In a press release this week, CAPS board member Stuart Hurlbert, an emeritus professor of biology of San Diego State University, raged that AAAS was “openly censor[ing] speech and access to information” and asked why the group “fears any discussion of stabilizing U.S. population by lowering immigration.”
AAAS “fears” nothing of the sort. Spokeswoman Ginger Pinholster told Hatewatch that the group welcomes any “science-focused” entity to apply for exhibit space at its conference. AAAS declined CAPS’ application because “upon investigation, we concluded they were more focused on political issues like immigration than on evidence-based scientific issues,” Pinholster said.
Hurlbert’s press release, which says that 100 U.S. and Canadian scientists and “other scholars” are protesting the AAAS event, was issued not by CAPS but by The Social Contract Press (TSCP), a race-baiting hate group with a special animus toward immigrants. Like CAPS, TSCP gets its cash from U.S. Inc., the funding conduit for an entire network of anti-immigrant organizations, including hate groups like the Federation for American Immigration Reform and think tanks like the Center for Immigration Studies, founded and/or funded by John Tanton, architect of the modern anti-immigration movement.
