The Hatewatch blog is managed by the staff of the Intelligence Project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, an Alabama-based civil rights organization.
John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou, the immigrant-bashing Los Angeles radio personalities who were suspended earlier this year when they referred to Whitney Houston as a “crack ho” and marveled that the late pop singer “took this long” to die, are back on the air and up to their old tricks.
In the August 3 edition of the “John & Ken Show,” the duo took up for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), an anti-immigrant organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center has called a hate group since 2008 because of its virulent and false attacks on non-white immigrants.
“The Federation for American Immigration Reform, I think, has been defined by some of these think tank organizations as a hate group,” Chiampou said. ( continue to full post… )
That attack-dog author Ann Coulter is not too bright — and that she is perfectly happy to slime any and all people she doesn’t like — is well known.
What’s not such common knowledge is that she is a racist.
Of course, there were early hints. The starkest came in 2009, when her latest rabid tome, Guilty: Liberal “Victims” and Their Assault on America, made an extended defense of a group called the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC). The CCC, Coulter opined, was merely “a conservative group” that was being attacked by The New York Times and others because it included “members who had belonged to a segregationist group thirty years earlier.” She asserted that there was “no evidence” on the CCC’s website of any support for segregation or the like.

It’s been a few months since Youth for Western Civilization (YWC) president Kevin DeAnna stepped down in February from the far-right campus organization that has some problematic associations with white nationalists. Since then, and since the group’s appearance at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) in February, YWC has appeared to go into a hibernation of sorts, but some of its leaders continue to be active.
The YWC website has been down for “redesign” for a few months, and the extremely active Towson University chapter lost its official status in March when its faculty adviser quit because he was concerned about some of the rhetoric the group employed. That came in the wake of YWC members chalking “white pride” messages on campus sidewalks.
Taylor Rose, who DeAnna referred to as the national vice president when he posted that he was stepping down, has been active in Europe (he is allegedly based in Romania) with far-right nationalist groups and parties. He has also been busy writing a book about the rise of the right in the U.S. and Europe and the re-establishment of Western civilization and values. He has promoted the book on two white nationalist websites (so far). ( continue to full post… )
One of the two white nationalists arrested after a violent surprise attack by anti-racists in suburban Chicago has a long history of activism on the racist right and was suspected of having ties to several militias in the late 1990s. The other has a lengthy record of arrests on battery and drug charges and writes prolifically on a white nationalist Web forum.
Francis John Gilroy, 65, of West Palm Beach, Fla., was charged with unlawful possession of weapons by a felon after a melee that began when 18 masked intruders attacked a group of white nationalists, including Gilroy, who were meeting in a suburban Chicago restaurant last Saturday.
Longtime white supremacist and former Klan leader Don Black said on his radio show Monday that Gilroy was arrested for having a pistol in his truck. Gilroy has appeared on Black’s show – the “Don and Derek Black Show” – under the name “Father Francis.” ( continue to full post… )
Five Indiana men were charged today in a violent attack Saturday that injured 10 alleged participants in a meeting to plan white nationalist strategy at a suburban Chicago restaurant.
Anti-Racist Action (ARA), a loosely organized group that fights racism, took credit on its website for the attacks, but it wasn’t immediately clear if the suspects are members. The group does have a Hoosier chapter. ARA spokespeople did not respond to E-mail requests for interviews.
The men were charged with felony mob action, felony aggravated battery and felony criminal damage to property, according to Steven Neubauer, chief of police in Tinley Park, Ill. The alleged attack took place just after noon at the Ashford House Restaurant. The men charged are Jason Sutherlin of Gossport, Ind.; Cody Sutherlin, Dylan Sutherlin and Robert Stuck of Bloomington, Ind.; and John Tucker of Spencer, Ind. ( continue to full post… )
Nearly two weeks after members of the Towson University chapter of Youth for Western Civilization chalked messages on university sidewalks that included the words “white pride,” the group has lost its campus privileges.
The school’s official recognition of the YWC was pulled when the group’s faculty adviser informed chapter president Matthew Heimbach that he would no longer be associated with the group.
“They were using rhetoric in their arguments that I found were not appropriate,” said the adviser, communications professor Richard Vatz. ( continue to full post… )
The killing of Trayvon Martin has aroused the passions of extremists on both sides of the racial divide, with some blaming civil rights leaders and the media for the controversy – and black separatist leaders suggesting vigilante justice for the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot the unarmed 17-year-old in Florida.

A few eyebrows and a few hackles were raised at Towson University last week when members of the campus Youth for Western Civilization (YWC) chapter chalked messages on university sidewalks that included the words “white pride” at several locations. The messages were left March 3, a Saturday, and discovered the following Monday, angering some students and resulting in a debate days later that was attended by some 400 students.

Stormfront.org, the largest white nationalist web forum in the world with a claimed 240,000 registered members, may have been hacked earlier this week.
The website, run by former Alabama Klan leader Don Black out of his West Palm Beach, Fla., home, is up again today, but its look is much simplified. Starting this afternoon, a discussion thread began on Stormfront discussing what most of those posting agreed was very likely a serious attack. ( continue to full post… )
The American Conservative Union’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) was dealt a blow last year when several organizations withdrew over the inclusion of a gay conservative group, GOProud, on its roster of sponsors. Having officially banished all gays who so much as make a peep about their rights, however, the annual right-wing shindig is back in business and conservative as all get-out, featuring representatives of a dizzying array of anti-gay, anti-tax, anti-abortion and anti-Muslim organizations, including hate group leaders like Pamela Geller of Stop Islamization of American (SIOA) and Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council (FRC).
No guest better illustrates CPAC’s refreshed commitment to hard-line conservatism than Peter Brimelow, founder of VDARE, a race-baiting hate group that warns against the pollution of America by non-whites, Catholics, and Spanish-speaking immigrants. Brimelow, an unabashed white nationalist who argues that white Americans should demand U.S. immigration law be changed to allow in mostly whites, today participated in a CPAC panel on “The Failure of Multiculturalism: How the pursuit of diversity is weakening the American Identity.” ( continue to full post… )
