GOP Boots Former Klan Leader’s Son

By Larry Keller on December 4, 2008 - 2:14 pm, Posted in Klan, White Supremacist

Derek Black isn’t feeling the love from the Palm Beach County, Fla., Republican Party. On Wednesday night, the party’s chairman — or “Jewish supremacist chairman” in the words of Derek’s dad, white nationalist webmaster Don Black — refused to seat the younger Black on the executive committee he won election to in August because Black, 19, failed to sign a GOP loyalty oath by the required deadline. And besides that, said party chairman Sid Dinerstein, Black is unwelcome because he’s a white supremacist. Black said he may sue, but his friend, former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard and Louisiana state representative David Duke made that sound like an iffy proposition on his website.

“Whether Derek Black pursues legal action is contingent upon the family finances,” Duke’s website states. “If he truly wants to make an issue of this and lacks finances, I hope he considers setting up a legal fund and reaching out to the white nationalist community for help. This is a battle worth joining.”

Black is the 19-year-old son of Don Black, a former Alabama Klan boss who is the founder of Stormfront.com, the world’s largest white supremacist online forum. Derek Black works on his father’s website. His mother, Chloe Black, was married to Duke before she married Don Black.

Derek Black won election to one of 111 Palm Beach County Republican Executive Committee seats, beating the incumbent with 58% of the vote. Committee members’ low-profile duties include electing the county party chairman and promoting voter turnout. After Dinerstein, the local party chief, learned more about Black, he said he wouldn’t seat him on the committee. He could do so, he said, because Black failed to sign the GOP loyalty oath by the June 20 deadline.

That prompted a visit from Duke to West Palm Beach for a few days last week in a show of support for Black. “Derek has done a great thing in winning this race,” Duke said in a Stormfront interview with Don Black last week. “I’m here to help Derek if he wants me to.” He and Don and Derek Black met with a Palm Beach Post reporter and Derek Black said he was insulted by Dinerstein’s characterization of him as a white supremacist. “I would describe myself as white person who is concerned about discrimination against white people,” said Black, who created a Stormfront children’s page when he was 12 that featured white supremacist sing-along lyrics and anti-Martin Luther King Jr. bedtime stories.

After the Post published its story, Don Black recorded what he said were two threatening post-midnight phone calls, apparently from the same person. In the first, the caller said, “We’re gonna have a scope trained on your son come Wednesday night.” In the second call, he mentioned Black’s home address and wife’s name and said he was outside his house. The phone number of the caller has since been disconnected.

Duke had left town by the time Derek Black attended Wednesday night’s GOP committee meeting. Once there, Dinerstein again refused to seat him. Nine other candidates suffered the same fate because they, too, missed the loyalty oath deadline. Black contends that a technicality shouldn’t trump the fact that he won the election. But even if Black had been seated, Dinerstein could have tried to remove him on a two-thirds vote for violating the section of the GOP oath that bans involvement in activities “likely to injure the name of the Republican Party or interfere with the activities of the Republican Party.”

Black insists he’s done nothing of that sort. “I can say without a doubt that I am not associated with white supremacy,” he said.

    Thanks for another ousntanditg post. I am from Mississippi and am in Conservative politics and feel your pain about getting people to join the cause. They always give an excuse as to why they can’t get involved but many of them agree with us. They are just afraid or cowards or both I guess you could say.I agree that politics is only part of our activism but is very important. We have to get in control of our government in order to have permanent change and I agree that it will take a Civil War to get there. We don’t want another Civil War but our enemies wont give up power without a fight. I still believe that we should work in politics to get our people elected from the local level and then work our way up to the top.The thing about politics is that we don’t have to really worry about what group a person is a member of or if they are even in an organization. All that matters is they turn out to vote for our candidates. All we need them to do is show up and vote for us. This is even a hard task for 50% of the population. Many of them are turned off by politics because it is corrupt. Others just don’t care about the political system.I feel that we need our people working in every part of society. Politics is just one part. We need our people working in private charities and churches. We need to take over every single aspect of society in order to change the culture and the people. I believe that just handing somebody a membership application is the wrong way to go because we have to work for their membership and the popular support of the people. I have been working on issues like Rural Poverty or White Poverty to show people that we care about them. Issues like that are the future of the movement and will land us either members or votes. Both are needed for our movement to be a winner!People think with their pocketbooks and focusing on the economy is a good way to get their support. We should continue to work to start our own businesses and hire our own people. That will make them less dependent on the aliens that run our government and society as a whole. Less excuses as well.

    “Christianity is a religion based on a myth rather than reality.”

    Oh really?
    I dare you say that to a Natavist, or what they love to call themselves “true patriotic Americans” or vigilantes. Then again, its unfortunate for you Hallman, approximately 90% of the White Supremacists in the WN movement are Christians. But of course you must be a retard, you forget that this country was founded on the fundamentals of Christian beliefs.
    Its why there’s so much infighting going on inside the WN movement….

    The “National Alliance”???

    I don’t think there’s any unity within the White Supremacist movement for any hatemongering pack of thugs to be legit enough to be called an “Alliance” when there is none.

    The US has an entirely different history and governmental form than that of Depression era Germany. Our way of viewing the world as it were is not that of those societies who are/were autocratic and feudalistic. Our mindset is just different.
    Thankfully, the most extremist elements in our society are, hopefully, limited in number. Those individuals are usually uneducated or uneducated or undereducated and under skilled. They are insular and fear that which is different from their socioeconomic group. They often have a tendency to blame other groups for the problems they have or that our country. This blaming of others helps them cope psychologically w.change or w. things they do not understand or who are different.

  • Aslan Maskhadov

    Ah yes, Christianity is a “myth”, as if Hinduism and all those other religions are based on reality. Well at least it accomplished more than your hero’s “Cosmotheism”, better known as “Gee it’s cool how I don’t have to work anymore but would it be possible to get tax free status?-ism”

    Also, why do you keep using terms like “we” and “our”, as opposed to something more accurate like “The other two guys and I”?

  • http://www.natall.com James Hallman

    Christianity is a religion based on myth
    rather than reality. The entire religion has
    been used to either dominate the masses
    through the ‘church’, or to make people
    into pacifist in order to be better controlled
    by the powers that be. It is through OUR will,
    not the creators, that political and social change
    will be realized.

  • mountaingirl08

    The GOP made its bed. They should lie in it.
    The Republican Party has made a concerted effort to attract the far right, And that is why they are finding some of their members and those in leadership positions to be extremist. What did they expect?
    You lie down w. dogs; you get up w. fleas.

  • mountaingirl08

    What in the heck is wrong w. people? Those who claim they are superior because they are alleged Christians and who hate Jews forget that Christ was Jewish and had never intended to inaugurate a new religion. Do the supremacists hate Christ? By their statements and actions we have to assume that that is so.
    Merry Christmas.

    “The Nationalist State is not a means in itself but a
    tool to ensure the integrity of the people it serves.”

    Yeah yeah yeah…I’ve read Mein Kampf pal, Manheim and Murphy.

    “The masses general think only about what they want
    right now, today, with little thought of tomorrow. This
    isn’t a slam against people in general, it’s just a fact,
    whether their black or white.”

    How much time did you spend thinking about the future before joining the National Alliance?

    “Democracy hasn’t the ability to select those qualified
    to see to these goals through. We see no class or rank,
    but rather a community of people who are connected by blood, united by language,”

    And how do you determine that blood link with Americans, who share blood with many peoples, a great deal of them non-European?

    “. This will
    never be possible through the democratic process.
    George W came to be president through wealth and
    family connections and has proved to be one of the
    dumbest presidents in American history. ”

    And your boy Hitler came to power through the financing of wealthy German industrialists as well as the backing of certain aristocratic elements of the army. Look up the history some time.

    “Obama, is a
    result of affirmative action”

    Really? Was Obama given any votes automatically? Was he given free electoral college votes? Was he granted a taxpayer funded campaign donation? Free air time?

    ” and the marxist brainwashing
    of millions of young idiots such as yourself..”

    Oh yeah…WE’RE the idiots.

    “There is no accountability in a democracy either. One
    party blames the other, the congress blames the
    president the president blames congress, the house blames the senate the senate blames the house. Who
    should be blamed is the masses who made this mess
    possible.If a leader of the people doesn’t do his duty, he
    isn’t going to survive very long.”

    Yeah, I guess 12 years in power isn’t too long is it? And while you continue to crib ideas from Mein Kampf, may I remind you that in the end, Hitler repeatedly blamed his generals and the German people for their defeat and misfortune. His final political testament was self-serving, and never did he address the nation in anyway to take responsibility for his failures of leadership. He violated his own leadership principle.

    ” When these idiots in
    Washington refuses to do their duty to the people, they
    get a fat check the rest of their lives and Secret Service
    protection.”

    The idiots REFUSE, that’s third person plural conjugation buddy.

    ” But of course you know this to be true.”

    The failure of other political systems does not validate Hitler’s ideology, which was an even more spectacular failure.

    ” I’m
    merely stated this for those misguided people out there
    who have been bamboozeled by the Jews and their
    program of cultural marxism and political correctness.
    Google that why don’t you!”

    How about you Google up a definition for this “cultural Marxism” you speak of.

    Politics is the art of carrying out a people’s struggle for

    Democracy hasn’t the ability to select those qualified
    to see to these goals through. We see no class or rank,

    ‘This country needs true leadership on par with what Adolf Hitler brought to Germany and the German people.”

    Then you really must be the biggest “idiot”, than the “stupid masses” you are imprudently referring to, inside a demoncratic and a free country, who have also exercised their Freedom by casting in their votes regardless of whom they’ve voted for. But sorry to hear that you’re still dreaming illusory fatansies inside that decrepit mind of yours which may never come “true”. And I guess this exactly why your “so called” movement never seem to grow beyond its current vapid state, and the “idiots” inside of it, always tend to get arrested daily or simply calling quits because they have come to realized that your whole “solid core” idealogy is a travesty, at best.

    “If National Socialism have had been fully realized without being destroyed by allies and world jewry.”

    As poorly educated as you are, whether its from a non-existent “Marxist educational” systems that your crying about or from homeschooling. The “allies” did not “destroy” German`s National Socialism but rather Hitler`s Nazism and tyranny. They had to put an end to his murderous quest that was killing a lot of “White” people over there. And because of Hitler, many White people parished as a result. This probably could have played a factor in the dwindling of the White population over there in the last century. And yet, you worship the guy.

  • Aslan Maskhadov

    It’s funny how people like you condemn the masses, when in fact the majority of those “idiots” as you call them are in fact white. Ah yes, the superhuman “white” race, that wonderful “race” that is so easily conquered by a tiny minority time and time again.

    Look around you Hallman, nearly every group out there is convinced that they are some kind of elite who knows what’s really going on, while the “masses” are just “sheep” or “lemmings”. I’m not just talking about the right here, but many groups on the “left” as well. Now ponder that for a second.

    As for the rest of your assertions, about Adolf Hilter, and this so-called “Marxist” educational system, would it trouble you to support any of those statements with fact in some way?

  • http://www.natall.com James Hallman

    The entire ‘democratic’ process is a joke anyway.
    The idea that those who make-up the masses
    should have say in the nations affairs when they
    haven’t a clue as to what’s what is stupid. In
    our present democracy you have idiots voting.
    those on welfare, those who wont work, those
    who have been brainwashed by the Jewish controlled
    media and marxist educational system. The very
    fact that that idiot George Bush was able to be
    elected, much less have us invading Irag with little
    protest from congress or the people should tell you
    something. This country needs true leadership on
    par with what Adolf Hitler brought to Germany and
    the German people. If National Socialism had been
    fully realized without being destroyed by the Allies
    and world Jewry, the human race would probably
    would have cured cancer, heart disease, diabetes
    as well as homosexuality.

    That’s up to the republican party leadership- and Black is clearly outnumbered.

    Aslan,

    As some people call the Constitution a “living document”, why not consider the Republican party a “living party” and change who represents it?

  • Aslan Maskhadov

    Sure Hallman, the Republican party shouldn’t be allowed to determine who represents it.

  • kwazimota

    the ability of your organization to advance your posistions covertly. while destabilizing the culture that made your unatainable vision possible. wow that was good .did you get to the sight of the cain an abel racial uprising . your a tireless self promoter . between your web sight, cops and americas most wanted im never bored keep up the good work. i was thinking (yes i do.im probably just jealous) now that we are all aging.you and Gloria Alred could do a fox show on elder abuse that should further impede what would be a somewhat less violent melding of the races. an allow you to stay in the limelight while not looking like the oldest perv in the courtroom have a nice day.

  • James Hallman

    This is evidence that there is no such thing as true
    freedom or democracy in this country. It’ all a sham.
    No matter how much the will of the people may
    express itself, if it’s politically incorrect, than it’s
    for nothing. This is the reason why those who think
    third parties are the answer to our presnt problms
    should think again. Solidarity in establishing a
    ‘national community’ is the only answer.

  • Al Champagne

    Wow. Even in this ridiculous 24 hour news cycle, David Duke just can’t seem to do anything to warrant even a blurb on cable news. Last time he was I remember him mentioned in the Times Picayune was when they mentioned the record high turnout for the ’91 Governor’s race as a footnote.

  • Jonathan

    Aslan,

    I presume you are referring to my post. Yes, I have eyes; re-read my first paragraph.

    Maybe one should ask Derek Black what he thinks of things before making assumptions and the same for Mr. Dinerstein.

    I’m not labeling Mr. Dinerstein a “Jewish Supremacist”, the term is virtually always used in a bogus way; its use is a propaganda technique. Besides, I’m actually pro-Israel.

  • Aslan Maskhadov

    Hath a dude not eyes? Did you not see where the article states that several other candidates also failed to sign the loyalty oath?

    And no, Mr. Dinerstein is not acting like a “Jewish” supremacist” because he takes issue with a guy who automatically hates him for no reason. A Jewish supremacist would block any non-Jew’s candidacy in favor of a Jew, kind of like a White supremacist.

  • Jonathan

    I’d be interested to know if booting out candidates for not signing the loyalty oath has happened in the past and not something just invented. If so, fair enough; Mr. Dinerstein can’t make exceptions for the young Mr. Black.

    But it’s concerning that Mr. Dinerstein says Mr. Black is “unwelcome because he’s a white supremacist.” Maybe Mr. Dinerstein supports Israel and thus could be labeled a “Jewish Supremacist”?

  • GENO

    I hops that “Black” kid who is the son of the White Supremacist–Don Black, has the backings of David Duke. Because realistically, his “support” will not help Black in any way to achieve momentum. And for an obvious reason above all the others–David Duke is well known White Supremacist. Not necessarily a well liked figure either, other than from the like-minded White Supremacists who share his views, who are for the most part–a minority few.
    Which is why the Republican Party gave him “the boot”.

    A similair incident happened in my area. This one involved J.T. Ready, a lowly leveled committeeman and a member of the NSM. He is also memtioned by SPLC in recent years. The local Republicans realized that his presence in the Party is causing a low voter turnout, because the locals knows of his background and association. So they booted the obese nut from the Party. Also because J.T. Ready would not seek re-election.(probably because of the media scrutiny)
    Having White Supremacists on the Party will only deter voters, both Whites and non-Whites alike. This shows that White Supremacist idealogy(whatever that may be, and its purpose is meaningless to me) is not universally embraced. And if it can happen to J.T. Ready, then surely it can happen to D-Black`s son.
