“Obama” and Holder are Victorious, as Communist and Anarchist Terrorists Use Death Threats to Shut Down American Renaissance Conference

By Nicholas Stix
(Updated at 8:47 a.m. Last updated at 9:27 a.m.)

Using death threats against hotel employees, terrorists succeeded at getting the hotel hosting the American Renaissance 2010 Conference to cancel the contract. The conference had been scheduled for February 19-21, at a hotel near Dulles Airport, and this was the third hotel which had canceled.

At the hotel, the terrorists threatened staffers with murder, if the conference took place. Though this will surely be news to Attorney General Eric Holder, who believes that the laws forbid only acts committed by people he hates, that is a federal felony, as well as a violation of the group’s (and mine, since I had registered to attend) first amendment rights to freedom of opinion, freedom of speech, and freedom of assembly.

(In 2008, leftwing terrorists had called hotel employees at home, and threatened to murder them, but the conference went on without a hitch, and was a rousing success. I know; I was there.)

The racist-communist group One People’s Project, which has long bragged of using violence against those whom it hates, put out a press release on its home page, preening over its victory.


“Antifa,” a contemporary euphemism for “communist,” is a shortened version of the old code word, “anti-fascist.” A contemporary equivalent is “anti-racist.”

OPP chopped its press release into two parts. The first, short part, on the group’s main page, the only part that most people will read, was careful to omit the real reason for their “success”: The death threats. Instead, they make it seem as though through hard work and moral suasion, they had gotten the hotel to cancel the event, and joke about causing participants an “inconvenience.”

That's right. Done. Kaput. Finished. Over. CANCELED! After three months of getting the word out and letting people know that a group of politically connected white supremacists were planning to meet this weekend, American Renaissance editor Jared Taylor threw in the towel, effectively canceling the American Renaissance Conference 2010. Of course this comes after losing yet another hotel. Taylor and the other organizers thought that they would be able to keep the location under wraps until 48 hours before the conference, to discourage protesters from organizing, a "fool-proof plan" to hear them explain it. Memo to Jared Taylor: Antifa are not fools, and to think otherwise makes you one. People from all over the country went into overdrive trying to find out where this conference was and the effort simply paid off. It didn't help matters much that in the midst of all of this we broke the story about how ACORN videographer James O'Keefe attended a white supremacist forum with Jared Taylor on the panel, because the traffic coming from that also meant people were going to learn more about Taylor and is current activities. That meant the opposition went viral! This has never happened before. This was once a conference that you could watch on C-SPAN. Now you would be lucky if it even happens! We want to thank everyone that stayed on top of this and helped make this happen. As for the other side - those who support Taylor and this conference, especially those who were going, they will continue down their psychopathic roads, regardless of how detrimental it is to them. As Taylor should know by now, there's a lot of people who are willing to be that detriment, and Unlike Taylor, we don't apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused!

In a classic case of projection, in the short version, One People’s Project called those who had planned on attending the conference, “psychopathic.”

In other words, according to OPP, people who use scientific facts and logic to discuss controversial matters are “psychopaths,” while people who threaten hotel employees, “If you hold this conference I will go in there and shoot you,” are perfectly sane.

The permalink to the front page version, however, is to the complete version. Thus, once OPP removes the short version (see below) from its main page, there will be no more evidence of the group’s chicanery.

Note too that the “story” on muckraker James O’Keefe, who with his partner exposed ACORN, that the OPP press release refers to, was a hoax that was exposed by Larry O’Connor at Big Journalism.

With these guys, you get lies on top of lies, on top of lies.

OPP was founded by black racist/communist, Daryle Lamont Jenkins. OPP’s slogan is, “A resource for those on the front lines fighting fascism… especially those who don’t play nice.” In other word, they are violent racist communists, who make common cause with their like. OPP has not a cross word to say about genocidal black supremacists.

American Renaissance’s Jared Taylor sent out the following e-mail to all participants.
Dear AR conference registrant,

We regret to inform you that today, February 15, the hotel at which we planned to hold the conference canceled its contract with us. Hostile callers phoned the hotel and threatened employees with death. One was specifically warned, “If you hold this conference I will go in there and shoot you.” Hotel management reported these threats to the police but felt it had no choice but to cancel.

We had backup possibilities, but all have fallen through, so we will not be holding the February 19-21 conference.

We are very sorry for the great inconvenience this no doubt causes you.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to American Renaissance in the amount of your registration that would be welcome. However, we stand ready to refund all registrations and banquet fees. Please let us know by return e-mail how you would like us to proceed.

We understand that many of you have bought non-refundable air tickets. Generally, the amount spent on such tickets can, for a period of a year, be used to buy a different ticket on the same airline. However, most airlines then deduct $150 from the amount that can be spent to buy the new ticket. If you bought a non-refundable ticket, please send us proof of purchase and we will send you a check for $150. We do not want anyone to suffer financial loss because of this cancelation.

Again, please accept our apologies for this very disappointing outcome. We value your continuing support and deeply regret that we will not be seeing you on February 19.

Best regards,

Jared Taylor

Taylor also put out a press release:

American Renaissance: Death Threats End Biennial Conference of Controversial Group

Is there freedom of speech and assembly in Virginia?

OAKTON, Va., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Zealots opposed to a meeting to be held by a Virginia non-profit organization have bullied three hotels into cancelling the event, thus making it impossible for the group to hold its biennial conference. American Renaissance (AR), a monthly magazine that has published on race and immigration for 20 years, had scheduled its ninth biennial meeting for the weekend of Feb. 19 through 21.

Opponents then pressured the hotels -- leafleting the premises, flooding switchboards with phone calls, finding the home phone numbers of hotel employees and threatening them with death -- thus causing the hotels to cancel their contracts to hold the meeting. The last hotel canceled today. More than 250 people had registered for the conference, and guests and speakers were expected from as far away as Britain and South Africa.

American Renaissance has held conferences since 1994. There have been protesters and crank calls, but conferences have always taken place peacefully and successfully.
AR is a race-realist publication edited by Jared Taylor that takes controversial positions:

* That diversity is a source of conflict and not a strength.
* That people of all racial groups prefer the company of people like themselves.
* That Asians are, on average, more intelligent than whites, who are more intelligent than blacks.

However, AR's positions are much less important than what this cancellation means for freedom of speech and assembly.

Any controversial group can be kept from holding meetings by fanatics who -- through the Internet -- decide to gang up on a hotel. If this tactic works against a 501 c (3) educational non-profit like American Renaissance, what is to stop animal rights activists from shutting down a meat-packers' meeting or environmentalists from shutting down miners or foresters?

Freedom of speech and assembly are guaranteed in the Constitution but those rights will be lost if Americans do not fight back against those who would deny them. As Judge Learned Hand put it, "Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it."

OPP worked together with the “Self-Described Anarchist Collective,” the R.E.A.L. Organization,” and the Mormon Worker newspaper.

As best I could determine, there is no organization behind the moniker, “R.E.A.L.” (Responsible for Equality And Liberty – Love is More Powerful Than Hate – Love Wins”), just one man, Jeffrey Imm. Imm, who started the ball rolling with the terrorist campaign, reportedly was an employee of the FBI, and in recent years has contracted with the Department of Homeland Security.

For Imm, terrorism equals “love.” Paging George Orwell!

The Mormon Worker claims to combine Mormonism with “radical politics.” It’s probably a scam, in order to con Mormons into becoming communists (see also “civil rights movement,” “feminism,” “environmentalism,” etc.). In any event, in addition to such well-known Mormons as Noam Chomsky and Norman Finkelstein, the contributors page lists 16 people who claim to be Mormons, or to have completed a mission abroad.

The “Self-Described Anarchist Collective” is new to me, but when they describe themselves as “hooligans,” I’m willing to take their word for it.

Or perhaps, “hooligan.” As of 6:09 a.m. today, their Web page has not been updated since February 13, and thus has no notice of the conference’s cancellation.

The chief suspects have to be OPP and Imm, since OPP celebrates violence, and Imm, with his talk of “love,” can rationalize anything.

Meanwhile, the MSM has so far refused to report on the matter.

Above all, this was a victory for Eric Holder and his boss, the John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama.”

The Bush I, Clinton, and Bush II administrations had all made life miserable for whites, and especially for race-conscious whites who were fighting to save their country. But only under “Obama,” did the enemies of liberty feel safe in engaging in terrorism. And that was no accident. “Obama,” a longtime devotee of genocidal Black Liberation Theology, has made it clear that it is open season on whites.

Acting on “Obama’s” behalf, Holder has aggressively acted to (literally) disenfranchise whites and strip them of their constitutional rights, by supporting the genocidal black supremacist, domestic terrorist group, the New Black Panther Party (NBP), and by supporting the unconstitutional Hate Crime Bill, which “Obama” has since signed into law.

As I wrote on May 12 in a VDARE exclusive, “Diversity is Strength! It’s Also…’Jim Snow’ Disenfranchisement of Whites,” on Election Day 2008, members of the NBP were caught on videotape at the entrance to a polling place in Philadelphia, dressed in military garb and with at least one (calling himself “King Samir Shabazz”) threatening white voters and poll watchers with a night stick, shouting racial epithets at them, and blocking their entrance. The Panthers made it clear to white voters and poll watchers that they were doing this, in order to help “Obama” win the election.

One of the Panthers allegedly told a white, "You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."

The group also claimed that it planned to eventually engage in such terrorism nationwide.

(See also here, here, and here.
View and download a collection of videos of the Philadelphia Panthers’ voting rights violations here, before they’re gone.)

On January 7, the Bush Justice Department sued the New Black Panther Party. On the case’s court date, April 20, the defendants (the Panthers) refused to appear in court. The presiding judge issued a default judgment against the Panthers, as is routine in civil cases in which one side fails to appear, but on May 15, the “Obama” Justice Department insisted instead on dropping the charges against the Panthers, based on their non-appearance! (The DOJ retained only an injunction against one terrorist, to refrain from threatening voters and poll watchers with deadly weapons, pretty please, with a cherry on top. Since federal law already prohibited threatening voters and poll watchers with deadly weapons, the injunction was redundant. And why was this only a civil case, to begin with?)

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has subpoenaed the Justice Department, in order to question its officials as to their handling of the case, but Justice has stonewalled, inventing non-existent “executive privileges,” and refusing to cooperate.

And then on June 25, 2009, in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Holder explicitly stated that white heterosexual, conservative Christians would not be protected by the Hate Crimes Bill, which has since passed both chambers and been signed into law by “Obama.”

The terrorist acts that shut down the American Renaissance conference are all actionable. And in spite of the “Obama” Administration’s racism and anti-Americanism, all patriots must demand that the FBI investigate and arrest the terrorists. An example must be made of them.

Meanwhile, “Obama” and Holder have made clear that, as far as they are concerned, white Americans have no rights in their own country, and that through accelerated, mass non-white immigration, they plan on turning American into another South Africa/Zimbabwe. But if reasonable men cannot come together to speak about race and immigration employing scientific facts and logic, the stage will be left to unreasonable men, and that does not mean merely communists, black supremacists, and so forth. There is no moral argument against white nationalists shutting down lectures and conferences, using the same methods as the communists/racists, calling in bomb threats, etc. I do not propose such tactics, but I will not condemn them. As Thomas Hobbes wrote in Leviathan, in a state of anarchy, no man is obliged to follow the state’s laws. Revised for current use, make that “anarcho-tyranny.”

As ye sow, so shall ye reap.

Nicholas, you said back on splcenter:

"It was cancelled, due to death threats. I hate to break it to you, but there’s no First Amendment right to threaten to murder people."

Do you have proof or example of these "death threats"?

I've read your blog post and your "proof' are a video of 2008 election and a video of Holder on Hate Crimes Bill.

What do those videos have to do with American Renaissance conference?

That kind of non sequitur is why people don't take the white pride movement seriously IMO.

Nicholas said...


Either you didn't read my blog--in which case you're a fibber--or you're illiterate.

By the way, the non sequitur is your poison, not mine. Don't project!

But I have no doubt that you read--or had someone read to you--the title, and saw the pictures.

Micronutrients and literacy volunteers are your friends!

LaLee said...

"Either you didn't read my blog--in which case you're a fibber--or you're illiterate."

I did read your post on it and the worst example you have which actually have something to do with the American Renaissance conference opposition is this:

"In a classic case of projection, in the short version, One People’s Project called those who had planned on attending the conference, “psychopathic.”"

Which hardly count as death threat.

OTOH do you have proof of this?

"while people who threaten hotel employees, “If you hold this conference I will go in there and shoot you,” are perfectly sane."

Can you give me a full quote of that (With link of course) as proof?

If i may remind you, false witness is not only a crime it's also a sin.

Oh and thank you for the advice on "micronutrients" and "literacy friends."

Glaivester said...

It has been posted elsewhere that this threat has been made.

Glaivester said...

If you want to see the quote, click on the link above and then search the page for "shoot."

LaLee said...

I've read the article on VDARE about the death threat and i notice that it has NO ATTRIBUTABLE LINK.

Which is curious because any other quotes in that article have attributable link.

If the quote is real then where's the link which proves it's existence?

If not the link for the quote itself then where's the link to the google cache of it?

Anyway, it seems to me that you're a nice guy (Anyone who likes Brisco County Jr can't be that bad) so it would be unfortunate IMO if you fall for a false quote.

Nicholas Stix said...


Do you mean this article?


There's no link, because it is from a letter that was first posted on the Web, to my knowledge, by VDARE.

The letter was sent out by Jared Taylor to all conference participants, including yours truly. He also confirmed, in personal correspondence with me, that death threats had been made against hotel personnel.

As for your demand for "proof," I just did a search under your handle and SPLC/SPLCENTER, and couldn't find a single instance of your demandng "proof" of claims from Hoax Central, aka the SPLC.

So, you make no demands of a group of discredited, pathological liars (SPLC), but make this extraordinary demand of me, who has never been shown to lie in a story.

Now, that's curious ... or sumpin.'

LaLee said...

"The letter was sent out by Jared Taylor to all conference participants, including yours truly."

Do you still have it?

If it's not an email then how about a scan of of the letter?

If it's an email then what's the address of the sender?

I don't need to ask SPLC for any evidence of their claim because so far their claim has been corroborated by news articles AFAIK.

OTOH your claim about "death threats" concerning American Renaissance conference have not been reported by any news station or papers or even talk radio.

BTW can you cite any news article which exposed SPLC as "discredited, pathological liars"?

I don't know of such news and i know about ACORN scandals exposed by O'Keefe.

And please don't tell me to look for it myself because the burden of proof is on the accuser.

I'm not the accuser, i'm asking question to the accuser to back his words.

Download and listen to Jared Taylor with Don Black on Stormfront Radio


He makes some awesome points here.

Nicholas said...

Thanks for the link, 2-19, 11:19 p.m., indeed he does. But then, Jared always does. He knows not only the history and science of race, but all of the constitutional arguments inside-out. I posted the link at the next page here.

Jeffrey Imm said...

Mr. Stix - Since your blog and its commenters have so frequently misstated the situation on the American Renaissance, I thought I would clear it up for you. There is a lot of misinformation from Mr. Jared Taylor, VDARE, Stormfront, and Occidental Dissent.

Mr. Stix recently referenced American Renaissance's Jared Taylor interview on Stormfront's Derek Black radio show on WPBR (for now). I had been mentioning for months the links between AR and Stormfront, and to confirm this Jared Taylor is an invited guest on a Stormfront leader's radio show. The promotion of this, by Don Black, including another poster's support for Holocaust Denier Ernst Zundel.

From November through February, R.E.A.L. had contacted the DC mainstream media to see if they were going to report on the New Century Foundation / American Renaissance event, as it was clear to us from some discussions with the public and local businesses, that they had no idea that the "New Century Foundation" was the same as the "white nationalist" "hate group" American Renaissance. The local media had no interest in reporting such a story.

Jeffrey Imm said...

Therefore, R.E.A.L. engaged in a public awareness campaign to make the public and local businesses aware of the identity and ideology of "New Century Foundation" was that of the "white nationalist" "hate group" American Renaissance. Given the extremist hate individuals who have been and continue to be (such as Stormfront, OD, etc.) attracted the American Renaissance conference, we felt that local businesses had a right and obligation to be informed of the facts.

Given the June 2009 white supremacist terrorist attack on the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC, and the subsequent praising of the terrorist Von Brunn by Stormfront members on their web site, we felt this was a priority at a minimum to allow local hotels to ensure they had proper security. One of the scheduled American Renaissance speakers had been at an event that Von Brunn had attended.

Moreover, the AR-promoting Stormfront group has had numerous other links to terror and violence, including Stormfront member Daniel Cowart's arrest for Tennessee mass casualty terror plot, Poplawski's murder of police officer in Pittsburgh, and death threats by Stormfront members against Barack Obama. (In the past week, Stormfront members have been praising the terrorist murderer of a black IRS worker as a "hero," and have also been praising the 9/11 attackers.)

In addition to this, the American Renaissance group itself is monitored by law enforcement agencies for tracking due to its links to violent groups. Six months after a terrorist attack on Washington DC, local businesses and hotels deserved to know all of this information.

Furthermore, we also clarified what American Renaissance's "white nationalist" ideology represented in terms of belittling and degrading Black and Hispanic Americans, and American Renaissance Jared Taylor's public mocking of diversity.

Jeffrey Imm said...

We did not ask hotels to cancel the American Renaissance conference, but we felt that they deserved to be educated on exactly what group was planning to hold an event at their facility. They had a right to know. We also had the freedom of speech to share this information. Just like restaurants may ask a customer to leave if they are making rude comments about the race of other people, so hotels too have a right to ensure the dignity and safety of their other customers by those groups seeking to hold events that seek to belittle Blacks and Hispanics, who are also their customers.

What we did ask these hotels was to give us a place where we could offer a counter message of racial harmony, respect, dignity, and diversity. We did not demand this for free. Not a single hotel came back to take us up on this offer. The senior management or owners of every single hotel in the DC area that we contacted wanted to have nothing to do with the American Renaissance, once they knew who they were.

R.E.A.L. did everything we could to ensure such communications were polite, respectful, dignified, and discrete with the public and with businesses. In some cases, we had exclusively private discussions with business leaders where we attempted to keep the information about AR planning to hold such events out of the media and widespread public attention, while we were talking.

However, we have no control over public information gathering and other groups were also researching the planned location of the AR conference. At the Four Points location, for example, dc.indymedia.org decided to go public with information that they had discovered on that location. We don't know if other groups also did so. R.E.A.L. did not release this to widespread public attention until after the Four Points decided to cancel the event.

Jeffrey Imm said...

We discovered that sometime on February 13, when dc.indymedia and perhaps others, released information on the Four Points AR conference location, that there were reports of a threat there. We have publicly rejected and denounced any who made such threats, on the Internet, on the radio, and at our February 19 public event. We also called Jared Taylor and told him this on February 15, and we also called the Four Points hotel and asked if there was any way we could help in the investigation of such threats to have the police contact us so we could help.

R.E.A.L.'s challenge to "white nationalist" "hate" is the same challenge that we would make to any other hate ideology, whether it was racial or religious supremacism, Communist totalitarianism, or misogyny. We are and have been completely consistent on this.

Jeffrey Imm said...

Moreover, our obligation to educate hotels about the identity of "hate groups" that seek to hold events there is no different whether it is American Renaissance or Hizb ut-Tahrir. We also notified the Chicago suburb Hilton when Hizb ut-Tahrir sought to hold their anti-democracy, anti-freedom event there. When the Hilton decided to hold the event regardless, we held the ONLY protest against a Hizb ut-Tahrir organization that has been held yet in the United States to date.

If the hotels had not already cancelled the American Renaissance, and had not given us a place in the hotel to provide a counter-message, we would have done the same as at the Hizb ut-Tahrir event in July 2009, and held our protest in the street.

We held a public awareness event on DC street corner on February 19. Jared Taylor was invited. He never showed up. Your former compatriots from Occidental Dissent came and his about half a block away. Hunter Wallace hid his face with a black bandanna scarf and a black hat. "Pip Pockets" giggled. That was the extent of the WN's willingness to face the American public. There was no crowd of "thugs" or "leftists" ready to attack the WN's. They feared just the American public on a street corner in our nation's capital.

We support freedom of speech, and we even personally invited Mr. Taylor to join us when his event was cancelled. But apparently "white nationalists" only can handle freedom of speech when it is in a conference room and there is only ONE side being spoken - a side denigrating black Americans, a side mocking Hispanics, and a chorus of those from Stormfront and other "hate groups" who seek to reinforce and legitimize their hate.

R.E.A.L. will have another public event at the end of March or middle of April at the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool Steps. You can find out more about that at RealCourage.org.

We urge all those who hate to drop the burden of hate from their hearts. Choose Love, Not Hate. Love Wins.

Rick Darby said...

Let's see: five long comments in a row by Jeffrey Imm. I wonder: does he ever stop talking? Does he ever take a break from commenting? It's so generous of him to devote all his time to protecting the American people from his designated hate groups.

Okay, Mr. Imm. You can now write five stretched comments bashing me. On your mark, get set ...

Hey Imm, I wonder if you live in the black ghetto?
