Clements was the latest victim of increasingly active violent right-wing extremists. While American politicians and the U.S. public continue to focus on the threat from jihadist extremists, there seems to be too little awareness that this domestic form of political violence is a growing problem at home.
From 2002 to 2007, only nine right-wing extremists were indicted for their roles in politically motivated murders and other types of ideologically motivated violent assaults. But between 2008 and 2012, the number mushroomed to 53, according to data collected by the New America Foundation. (Click on chart on the left for the data.)
Fifteen right-wing extremists were indicted in 2012 — including six who were involved in a militia in Georgia that accumulated weapons, plotted attacks on the government and murdered a young U.S. Army soldier and his 17-year-old girlfriend, who they suspected were planning to rat out the group to authorities. Seven claimed membership in the anti-government Sovereign Citizens movement and allegedly murdered two policemen in Louisiana. And two had gone on a murderous rampage the previous year, killing four people before they were arrested in California, where they told police they were on their “way to Sacramento to kill more Jews.”
When the news broke yesterday about the white supremacists who crashed a CPAC panel on minority outreach and defended slavery, I wrote:
What this guy says is no different than the rhetoric you can find in the comment sections of almost any right wing blog or news site.
And today, they’re proving me right. A lot of right wing websites seem to be afraid of the story and are trying to ignore it, but at every site that does cover it, commenters are spewing shocking torrents of outright white supremacism, racism, and antisemitism.
The article is a fairly straightforward account of what happened, but the comments are jaw-dropping.
What George Lincoln Rockwell spoke about 60+ years ago is coming to fruition, this is America’s future when it becomes “48% black & 47% Hispanic”
Let’s pause for a reminder, in case you didn’t recognize the name: George Lincoln Rockwell was the founder of the American Nazi Party.
For over a century, the millstone of white guilt hung around our necks, retribution for slave-owning predecessors. In the 60s, American liberals began yanking that millstone while sticking a fork in the eye of black Americans, exacerbating the racial divide to extort a socialist solution. European Americans made this country the richest and greatest in the world and are the only ones who can save it, if given the chance..
I don’t agree with the white supremacists, BUT you have to see that your supposed to be embarrassed to say your white and proud of your heritage. This has long passed equality, imagine for a second a group called the National Association for the Advancement of White People, and the outrage that would follow it. Yet it’s acceptable for this group if they are colored. I never owned slaves, nor have any of the black people in America been slaves…
White heritage is the sum total of all achievements by Caucasoids the world over throughout history, beginning with Indo-Europeans in 5000 B.C. onward.
Caucasoids are a race and a race is a division of humanity that is regarded as an extended family sharing the same basic traits, as well as the same or nearly the same, DNA which sets them apart from other races who do not. Sub groups are identified as ethnicities.
White heritage in America considers the collective accomplishments of all white ethnicities, their victories, trials and tribulations, since they first populated this country.
The Era of White Guilt is indeed over. Barack Obama showed the country that “his people” are completely racist and bent on revenge. I truly believe this young man was just trying to stick up for himself.
Slavery happened. No one can deny that. Time to move on people. Make a life for yourself. Anyway you can.
If Minorities don’t stop “using” the race card and this history they are going to get the “push back” they deserve.
Lorianne - Many White Cultures were enslaved throughout history - the difference is the “White” races didn’t feel pity for themselves and try to bilk the system for every penny they could. Even here in America look at what races were forced into labor and belittled - The Chinese, The Irish, The Italians and the Japanese were even rounded up and placed in concentration camps during World War II. My own father was forced to go out to the desert and Witness Atomic bomb blasts that exposed him to radiation. Not once did I hear him complain or feel sorry for himself or demand special treatment. Yes , I am proud of my heritage and anyone who takes offense to it can kiss my Rear End ! I feel no guilt whatsoever ! If that’s Racist then so be it - I have no regrets !
I will say this about slavery and I will tell you I’m neither white nor a racist. Let’s turn the clock back and ask this common sense question:
If during the period of slavery, if all the slaves had been gathered and given a choice of either staying in this country as slaves or returning to their home land, which one would they have chosen?
I would argue that the majority would have chosen to stay here as slaves.
Let’s look at this hypothesis as it could be proven as well today.
If we travel to every third word nation in the world and made an open offer to their citizens of a pass to come to America in exchange for 10 years of slavery, I guarantee we could not get enough airplanes, boats, buses to bring all the takers.. I would have been thankful to my ancestors for coming here and enduring hardship so I can enjoy the greatness of this nation. A lot of our ancestors endure hardship maybe not slavery but other hardships to come to America so that we can have a piece of the dream.
I wish liberal progressives would stop spinning the past to separate us instead of unite us.
To all you White “Conservatives” “clutching the pearls” over Scott’s truthful and honest statements - WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? Your deranged reactions to the most normal feelings on Earth indicate the depths to which you have sunk. You’ve become so denatured that you immediately react by rearing back in horror, and denoucing one of your own young men, who is trying to prevent you from destroying yourselves.
This “Conservative” Black Host is the worst sort of Race huslter. He’s telling telling you clueless Whites what YOU want to hear, and attempting to keep the richest mine in history- the White Guilt Mine - open and operating. Why on EARTH you you think you to have anything to do with Blacks, as well as any member of any other Race? Why on Earth do you think you to cossett them, and appease them, and expend all your time, energy, and resources on them - when they only want you to PAY for them? When they attack you and try to kill you off as fast as they can? City after city has fallen to the destruction that Blacks wreak - Detroit, Birmingham, Atlanta, East St Louis, Philadelphia…..you feed and breed them - and they kill you, in gratitude. Why don’t you care about your OWN people, who are being systematically geneocided? What’s wrong with you?
africa 95% black
asia 95% asian
the middle east 90% arab
and White Countries? Well, “jews” use brown people as cultural, political, economic, and biological weapons of mass destruction to wreck White, Western countries and to further their lust for global communism completely devoid of any Natural Law/Rights.
We nee to control the Media like the Marxists do. Then we could control the debate..
As much as I disagree with Beck over his shilling for the Jewish people I’d like to see him get a platform on Cable/Sat TV. I view the Jews as extremely dangerous to the Republic however Beck is still far to the right of the Marxist Jewish Media on almost ever issue.
Absolutely horrifying. It goes on and on like this, for hundreds of comments.
Jim Hoft Pathetically Tries to Excuse CPAC Racists, Commenters Respond by Going Full Metal White Supremacist
At CPAC, the incredibly dense Jim Hoft won the “Accuracy in Media” award, and today he’s demonstrating the peerless skill that led to this honor with a post desperately trying to spin away the embarrassing little white supremacist incident at yesterday’s festivities:
The liberal media today are reporting on an incident yesterday at CPAC 2013. K. Carl Smith, founder and President of Frederick Douglas Republicans, held a break-out session on minority outreach. During the question and answer period a young man identified as Scott Terry suggested that blacks should be grateful for the clothing, shelter and food provided by their slave masters.
Here is how Think Progreess [sic] reported on the incident…
Of course, Hoft never gets around to explaining the “Big Media Lie.” Here’s the punchline to his stupid post:
Now here’s the rest of the story…
I spoke with K. Carl and his brother Karnie this morning at the Tea Party Patriot Live booth in the main hall.
K. Carl Smith said how he was so impressed with the CPAC audience who immediately came to his young man defense during thee [sic] breakout session.
Possibly the weakest spin ever by a right wing moron. He’s not even trying. But Hoft’s commenters quickly leap into action, making his pathetic attempt to excuse this eruption of blatant racism look even more ridiculous — by spewing racism and white supremacism all over the place.
So where’s the beef? Blacks ARE grateful for the clothing, shelter and food provided by their slave masters so much so that they vote for them every election cycle.
Has the whole situation degenerated to the point where progressives and their media cohorts must plant people to create a controversy? If so, I guess it means the cries of racism and sexism and ism-ism can no longer be supported naturally.
Scott Terry’s Liberal message was on point. That’s the entire platform for the Democratic party. You won’t leave the Dem Party plantation if we keep giving you “free” stuff.
The average black Sub-Saharian African IQ is about 70 and the average brown “hispanic” IQ is about 80. In comparison, the average White European IQ is about 100. And anyone who’s read “The Bell Curve” knows that there’s a very strong correlation between race, IQ and general quality of life statistics.
From a purely scientific point of view, how does it make sense to flood high IQ White societies with low IQ brown people? So much so that White babies are now racial minorities in America, Whites of all ages are estimated to become racial minorities in about 20 years and brown “hispanics” are estimated to become the new racial majority by about 2050.
Wake up. This bipartisan supported demographic ethnic cleansing of Whites will not only completely destroy the Republican Party but also completely destroy Western (White) civilization this century. Stop being spineless politically correct cowards that are too afraid of being called racists to stop the libtard schemes of mass importing generations of low IQ left-wing voters in order to stay in perpetual power and spread global socialism.
So, if we’re going to allow immigration to America, it should primarily be Whites and Northeast Asians with high IQs, spotless criminal backgrounds and advanced college degrees. And if they go on welfare or commit a violent crime within 10 years, they should be deported back to their native countries.
But even though Northeast Asians have IQs close to Whites, I still don’t support allowing them to mass immigrate to White countries since I want to preserve our racial majority.
And before you denounce these policies, keep in mind that Japan and South Korea already implement similar policies. If they can do it, why can’t we?
As to the study which showed that people with “conservative”, religious and racist views tend to have slightly lower IQs than “tolerant” “liberals” and atheists; I’d have to look at the demographic data to come to an objective conclusion. But regardless, even if racists did indeed have slightly lower IQs than “anti-racists”, that still doesn’t debunk peer reviewed scientific facts that bolster racist views - like the widely observed racial IQ gaps making it idiotic to allow low IQ races to mass immigrate to your society.
I support creating a White Nationalist state where non-Whites are denied citizenship. Or at the very least non-White immigration is severely restricted. And before you reject such policies, what’s the alternative? To allow the demographic genocide against Whites to continue?
slaves in America could have been instead shipped east to muslim nations where all the males are castrated before arrival killing 80% of the males, and the females are sent to hard toil and random rapes and torture.
I feel so sorry for the blacks that were captured in Africa by Arabs and African rulers and shipped out as property.
The luckiest 5% of of the total of just the Atlantic slave trade (not the larger Arabian trade) ended up in North America.
I say lucky because food, shelter and the ability to continue to have children and raise families is an anomaly in the history of world slavery while it was legal in America.
Black Slaves in America had it better than the 1.5 million whites slaved by the Barbary muslims in north Africa.
And today at CPAC, a full-on right wing racist meltdown at a panel discussion on (yes, irony is dead) “minority outreach:” CPAC Participant Defends Slavery at Minority Outreach Panel: It Gave ‘Food and Shelter’ to Blacks.
What this guy says is no different than the rhetoric you can find in the comment sections of almost any right wing blog or news site.
A panel at the Conservative Political Action Committee on Republican minority outreach exploded into controversy on Friday afternoon, after an audience member defended slavery as good for African-Americans.
The exchange occurred after an audience member from North Carolina, 30-year-old Scott Terry, asked whether Republicans could endorse races remaining separate but equal. After the presenter, K. Carl Smith of Frederick Douglass Republicans, answered by referencing a letter by Frederick Douglass forgiving his former master, the audience member said “For what? For feeding him and housing him?”
When asked by ThinkProgress if he’d accept a society where African-Americans were permanently subservient to whites, he said “I’d be fine with that.” He also claimed that African-Americans “should be allowed to vote in Africa,” and that “all the Tea Parties” were concerned with the same racial problems that he was.
At one point, a woman challenged him on the Republican Party’s roots, to which Terry responded, “I didn’t know the legacy of the Republican Party included women correcting men in public.”

Sikh Temple Shooter Was Member of White Supremacist Band - Update: Police Looking for ‘Person of Interest’
Today we learn that the alleged mass murderer who attacked a Sikh temple in Wisconsin yesterday before being shot and killed by police was a far right white supremacist and Army veteran, and a former member of a skinhead hate band.
The man who allegedly murdered six people at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee yesterday, identified in media reports as Wade Michael Page, was a frustrated neo-Nazi who had been the leader of a racist white-power band.
In 2010, Page, then the leader of the band End Apathy, gave an interview to the white supremacist website Label 56. He said that when he started the band in 2005, its name reflected his wish to “figure out how to end people’s apathetic ways” and start “moving forward.” “I was willing to point out some of my faults on how I was holding myself back,” Page said. Later, he added, “The inspiration was based on frustration that we have the potential to accomplish so much more as individuals and a society in whole.” He did not discuss violence in the interview.
Page told the website that he had been a part of the white power music scene since 2000, when he left his native Colorado on a motorcycle. He attended white power concerts in Georgia, North Carolina, West Virginia and Colorado. At various times, he said, he also played in the hate rock bands Youngland (2001-2003), Celtic Warrior, Radikahl, Max Resist, Intimidation One, Aggressive Force and Blue Eyed Devils. End Apathy, he said, included “Brent” on bass and “Ozzie” on drums; the men were former members of Definite Hate and another band, 13 Knots.
In 2000, the Southern Poverty Law Center has found that Page also attempted to purchase goods from the neo-Nazi National Alliance, then America’s most important hate group.
And he may not have been acting alone; police are looking for a “person of interest” with a 9/11 tattoo who was recording video of Sikhs after the shooting.
We’ve been watching in horror since the beginning of the Obama administration as the right wing’s buried racism came bursting out to the surface, loud and proud. And now, one of the GOP’s candidates for President, Tom Tancredo, who’s long been associated with extreme right wing groups, has completely stopped even his token attempts to conceal his true agenda, and will give a speech to one of the most virulent racist organizations still operating in the United States: Former Congressman Tancredo to Address White Supremacists.
Tom Tancredo has no more secrets.
The former Republican congressman from Colorado, known for his biting anti-immigration rhetoric and campaign ads suggesting Latino immigrants are rapists and drug dealers, is scheduled to be the luncheon speaker at next month’s annual conference for the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC). The theme of the conference? “Multiculturalism – the Death of America.”
Sharing the dais with Tancredo will be a rogue’s gallery of the racist right, including James Edwards, who hosts the white nationalist Political Cesspool radio show; Don Black, the former Klansman best known for creating Stormfront.org, the first major Internet hate site; and Leonard Wilson, a longtime segregationist and Alabama commander for the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a neo-Confederate group that, like Tancredo, staunchly opposes immigration.
For those who have watched Tancredo go through endless contortions to distance himself from his racist friends, speaking at a CCC conference seems to be a turning point. The time has passed to apologize for the company he keeps.
Tancredo’s PAC now says he’s not going to speak, despite being advertised in the CCC newsletter.
Documents obtained from Guidestar reveal that John O’Sullivan — former editor and current staff writer and “editor-at-large” for National Review — is listed on the board of directors for the white nationalist organization Lexington Research Institute Limited (aka The VDare Foundation) most commonly known as VDare.
Form 990s obtained from Guidestar reveal he was on their board from 2009 to 2010 with the overview report indicating him on the board of VDare from the 2006 to 2010 (Fiscal year ending on December 31, 2010).
John O’SullivanOn March 15, 2010, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported that white nationalist Richard B. Spencer of Taki’s magazine (see John Derbyshire firing) began a venture with Peter Brimelow, et al, to create a new online white nationalist magazine, Alternative Right.
Form 990 from that same year, 2010, reaveals a $35,000 grant from VDare to Alternative Right located in Whitefish, Montana. The group behind Alternative Right is the National Policy Institute which had their first conference in 2011 entitled, “Towards a New Nationalism.” Alex Knepper of Frum Forum described Richard Spencer “a white nationalist, a bully, and an intellectual coward” in his piece, “Alternative Right’s Ugly Racism”.
With backing from the white nationalist organization VDare in 2010 — at which time NRO’s John O’Sullivan was on the board of directors — Alternative Right has quickly become known for its promotion of racism, white supremacism or nationalism, and race realism, or what many consider “scientific racism.”
Dan Riehl, one of the star bloggers at Breitbart.com (one of his recent race-baiting posts got the coveted Drudge link there), is also known as one of the most inadvertently hilarious writers in the wingnut blogosphere. Not as dim as Jim Hoft, of course; no one is. But Dan has a penchant for self-contradiction, often in the same paragraph or even the same sentence, that is truly unparalleled. Here, Dan’s giving the right wing movement a pep talk (by viciously attacking the National Review’s editors) after the devastating loss of those two openly white nationalist writers at National Review: Riehl World View: Race in America: Leftism Is for Dummies, or Is That the Right?
Notice how Dan calls me a liar for pointing out that he defended John Derbyshire — then immediately defends John Derbyshire.
Charles Johnson was quicker and far more deceitful. Also note, I didn’t even bother trying to read it until the next day as Taki’s servers were crashed - from traffic to the post, I suppose.
It’s within the Republican Party that you’ll find dumbness and weakness among its so called leadership. Just as NRO did, rather than acknowledging any truth in what Derbyshire wrote and quietly dealing with him in whatever way they saw fit, while also using the occurrence as a means of offering some adult discussion on racism in America, they run screaming like a pack of scared little children, seeking comfort by pulling their blankets over their eyes and chewing their pillows in hopes the boogieman at the door goes away. They end up always letting the left drive the discussion, thereby enabling them to frame the debate in such a way as to beat them at the ballot box with it.
It’s striking how Dan’s only concern about these ugly racists writing for the National Review is that denouncing them means you’re surrendering to the left, and makes you look like a weak crybaby. I’m not sure what kind of person thinks that only weak crybabies don’t want to hang around with white supremacists — but that’s Dan for ya.
Note, however, that the racism itself doesn’t seem to bother him at all, except as a political problem.
Here we see CNN contributor and Andrew Breitbart editor Dana Loesch defending recently-fired MSNBC contributor Pat Buchanan, saying that Buchanan’s First Amendment rights have been violated by a “progressive” conspiracy to silence “diversity of thought:” Controversial Pat Buchanan Forced Off of MSNBC by Van Jones, Media Matters - Big Journalism.
“Diversity of thought” is a rather ironic phrase to apply to Pat Buchanan, a man who is viciously opposed to diversity in any other form. And “controversial” is an oddly watered down word to apply to someone who has a history of associating with open white supremacists. But on with Loesch’s apology for Pat:
Regardless what you think of Pat Buchanan’s controversial and questionable views, it’s troublesome when the First Amendment is abridged by small, partisan groups who’ve made it their mission to streamline diversity of thought to less voices, not more. Buchanan announced last night that he was forced off air by Van Jones’s Color of Change and the under-fire Media Matters …
That’s the difference between conservatives and progressives: conservatives want the diversity of voices, even if they disagree with the thought or if the thought is offensively over-the-top sensational. They’re eager to debate it out in the open and prove it wrong. They desire nothing more than to win converts by proving how illogical or immoral the opposite viewpoint is while using logic and reason. Progressives, on the other hand, desire none of those things, regardless whether or not the opposing viewpoint is sensational or simply one with which they disagree. Their idea of debate is quasi-censorship: blacklisting diversity from the airwaves. They’re either too lazy or too incompetent to debate the issues, so they resort to hiding them altogether. They don’t engage, they persecute and suppress. It’s weak and unAmerican.
I may whole-heartedly disagree with your sentiment, but I’m not going to call for your removal from the airwaves. I’ll debate you in the public square but I won’t press for your firing as my belief in your free speech doesn’t hinge upon whether or not you believe in mine; and my belief in the right of a private company to set standards as it pleases — except when those decisions come by way of outside pressure from fascist squeaky wheels who demand that their influence on an entity exceed their actual relevance in reality.
Of course, when Dana Loesch says “I’ll debate you in the public square,” she actually means she’ll call you a “pervert” and a child molester.
But it’s really awful that poor Paleo Pat’s constitutionally guaranteed free speech has been unceremoniously stripped away by the evil liberal cabal, isn’t it?
For more on this abominable censorship, read Pat Buchanan’s latest column at Townhall.com, RealClearPolitics.com, HumanEvents.com, World Net Daily, Creators Syndicate, and practically every other right wing site on the Internet.
Meanwhile, in objective reality, Pat Buchanan’s First Amendment rights have not been “abridged,” because the First Amendment pledges that the government will not make laws censoring speech, and Buchanan’s firing by MSNBC has nothing to do with the government. As you can see, he is still perfectly free to promulgate his hateful ideology at any website and/or cable news channel that will allow it. (Hey, Fox News — opportunity’s knocking.)
Dana Loesch clearly doesn’t understand the First Amendment to the US Constitution.
The First Amendment guarantees the right of free speech, without government censorship. It does not guarantee racist dirtbags like Pat Buchanan a “right” to be employed by MSNBC or any other private company that chooses not to help him spread hatred.
It wasn’t clear whether Pat Buchanan had actually been fired from MSNBC or not, but tonight the grizzled old racist confirms it in a monumentally whiny article titled: The New Blacklist.
My days as a political analyst at MSNBC have come to an end.
After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing, after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.
The calls for my firing began almost immediately with the Oct. 18 publication of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”
A group called Color of Change, whose mission statement says that it “exists to strengthen Black America’s political voice,” claimed that my book espouses a “white supremacist ideology.” Color of Change took particular umbrage at the title of Chapter 4, “The End of White America.”
Media Matters parroted the party line: He has blasphemed!
A Human Rights Campaign that bills itself as America’s leading voice for lesbians, bisexuals, gays and transgendered people said that Buchanan’s “extremist ideas are incredibly harmful to millions of LBGT people around the world.”
Their rage was triggered by a remark to NPR’s Diane Rehm — that I believe homosexual acts to be “unnatural and immoral.”
On Nov. 2, Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League, who has sought to have me censored for 22 years, piled on.
“Buchanan has shown himself, time and again, to be a racist and an anti-Semite,” said Foxman. Buchanan “bemoans the destruction of white Christian America” and says America’s shrinking Jewish population is due to the “collective decision of Jews themselves.”
Well, yes, I do bemoan what Newsweek’s 2009 cover called “The Decline and Fall of Christian America” and editor Jon Meacham described as “The End of Christian America.” After all, I am a Christian.
And what else explains the shrinkage of the U.S. Jewish population by 6 percent in the 1990s and its projected decline by another 50 percent by 2050, if not the “collective decision of Jews themselves”?
Let error be tolerated, said Thomas Jefferson, “so long as reason is left free to combat it.” What Foxman and ADL are about in demanding that my voice be silenced is, in the Jeffersonian sense, intrinsically un-American.
Consider what it is these people are saying.
Well, here’s what I’ve been saying: an LGF search page for all our articles about Pat Buchanan, and I stand by every one.
He should have been fired a long time ago.
