Is There a Growing Trend In European Far Right Nationalist Parties?

Newly elected to the MEP is BNP politico Nick Griffin, England’s recently spot lighted far right Fascist sensationalist.

Nick Griffin

Griffin just had his first meeting with what could possibly be a increasing political block of far right Nationalists from all over Europe.
Like most political masters of spin, Griffin release a cheerfully chilling report of a cooperative Nationalist unity between his Nazi based British Party and other like minds from France, Belgium, Austria, Hungary and Bulgaria.

Griffin’s report back:

Today saw the dawning of a new era in European nationalist cooperation with the first meeting of Members of the European Parliament from Britain, France, Belgium, Austria, Hungary and Bulgaria in preparation for the inaugural sitting of the newly elected body on 14 July.
“This was a historic day for many of us,” Nick Griffin MEP, leader of the British National Party told BNP News upon his return from the Continent where the meeting was held.
“It was an extremely constructive and friendly meeting of people who all share the same ideals for their nations – independence, self-determination and a desire to see Europe preserved as a continent of national identities,” Mr Griffin said.
Practical issues discussed at the meeting, which was chaired by France’s Front National MEP Bruno Gollnisch, included the possibility of forming alliances within the European Parliament and the sharing of the research workload between the various parties.
“Although we are below the threshold to make a formal group, there are many ways in which we can work together in the common interests of our nations in general and electors in particular,” Mr Griffin said.
“The parties with European parliamentary experience will be imparting that to the newcomers to ensure that we will all hit the ground running.
“In the longer term we will work to subdivide the enormous amount of work involved in researching and advising the MEPs on voting on different proposals, which can involve hundreds of votes in a single day,” he continued.
As to the possibility of forming alliances with other parties or groups, the Euro-nationalists decided that their solidarity would not be broken. “We will wait until the other parties and groups have completed their bargaining and horse trading to see if it is possible to reach an accord with any of them,” Mr Griffin said.
“We agreed that we would all stand together and that we would not be ‘cherry picked’ by other groups. If they want any one of us, they will have us all.”

Now, we all know that much of his blogging babble is a locker room pep talk, and the European press give a very different report:

The British National Party’s first foray into Brussels ended in failure yesterday after it was unable find enough allies on the far-Right to form an official group in the European Parliament.

Nick Griffin, the party leader and one of its two newly elected MEPs, has agreed instead to work informally with a loose group of five ultra-nationalist parties, notably the Front National of the veteran French racist Jean-Marie le Pen.

Mr Griffin had pinned his hopes on persuading the nine MEPs of Italy’s Northern League to ally themselves with the smaller far-right parties, but was shunned by the party, led by Umberto Bossi and part of Silvio Berlusconi’s ruling coalition.

The failure to meet the threshold of 25 MEPs from at least seven countries to form a parliamentary group means the loss of up to a million euros a year for the far-right parties which could have been spent on staff, offices and publications in Brussels, Strasbourg and their home countries.

Griffin’s exploits might very well at best considered insignificant in the terms of affecting the European Parliament. But, the fact remains Griffin is now a racist Nationalist member of parliament, placed there by a majority of his constituents.
Assuming Griffin’s number of sympathetic ears are accurate, it’s plain to see that griffin’s election was not an isolated incident.

Is this indicative of a far-right nationalist trend in europe?

More worrying is the fact that the bulk of these representatives come from countries typically seen as “liberal” by the United States.

Griffin attributes much of this success to his ability to “mainstream” his extremist views away from his historical base of violent skinheads.

Griffin has shown success at softening his image from the past, yet, it’s also true that there has been a growth in the membership of racist skinhead gangs, even in countries where right-wing nationalism hasn’t had much history.

What is troubling is Griffin’s election to the European Parliament adds another layer of a possible advancement in European racialist based Fascism or for the more polite way of labeling it: The Nationalist Parties.

Who is Peter Brimelow?

Brimelow

One would think with the recent exposure of the executive director for Pat Buchanan’s organization: The American Cause: Marcus Epstein (whom will be receiving his sentence for his violent hate crimes conviction in only a few weeks ) Buchanan would try to play down his more well known racist ties.
This doesn’t seem to be the case. On June 20, 2009 at 8:30 AM-6:00 PM at the fancy Ritz Carlton hotel in Tyson’s Corner VA, the now publicly stained “American Cause” is having a convention of white collar right wing extremism and their speaker list is a more than just a mud splattering of the usual suspects such as Tom Tancredo and Phyllis Schlafly.
Also, on the speaker list is the hate mongering anti-immigration British immigrant “Peter Brimlow” .
Brimelow might not be as well known as the other reactionary bobble-heads on Buchanan’s scheduled gathering, but his reputation of targeting immigrants as well as other people of darker skin with white privileged venom is notorious.
Using the notoriety gained as stock market predictor for CBS “MarketWatch,” his frequent appearances in the Wall Street Journal and his former position as the editor of Forbes, Brimelow has easily found audiences at the racist American Renaissance Conferences and donors for his main source of income, the racist website: VDARE.com a website that attempts to make racist and anti-Semitic viewpoints more palatable to mainstream conservatives.
Vdare.com claims it advocates reduced immigration, especially illegal immigration into the United States. Many watchdog groups who have been following the articles on the website can very easily point out the racist and xenophobic flavor.
With a long string of links to various sites such as “White America”, the racist “Occidental Quarterly”, anti-Semite “Kevin MacDonald ” and a barrage of sites opposed to the immigration of cultures of color, it is plain to see why Vdare is on our radar.
Vdare.com has been an internet hate resource since 2000. It was started by a $100,000 grant from The John M. Olin foundation via the Pacific Research Institute (PRI) for Public Policy while Brimelow was a senior fellow there. PRI is described as conservative think tank that challenges environmental regulations. Brimelow channeled PRI funds through his then-newly created Center For American Unity to give VDare the money to start their website. Brimelow founded the Center for American Unity in 1999 and served as its president (it has been recently succeeded by Edith Hakola). Vdare was created out of CFAU and was tooled as an arm of CFAU. Brimelow and his Vdare.com now no longer share any affiliation with CFAU. Vdare recently announced a funding crisis, despite the generous yearly salary of $378,418 he pays out for himself from donations. This is most likely linked to CFAU splitting from Vdare.com.


CFAU’s weight now seems to be thrown behind Edith Hakola’s American Unity Legal Defense Fund, with their mutual focus being legal battles over what it considers to be threats to America: mass immigration, multiculturalism, multilingualism, and affirmative action. CFAU and Vdare are both listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center as hate organizations.

Vdare has an interesting list of Board members:

Photobucket

The former editor-in-chief of United Press International, John O’Sullivan, now involved in Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty:
John O'Sullivan
(John O’Sullivan speaking in Prague)

Also, Peter’s brother, John Brimelow of Greenwich, CT, a hustler on the gold and silver markets and rounding out the other two board members on the roster are Vdare writers John Wall of Scarsdale NY, and Joe Fallon of Rye, NY.

Other writers and contributors to Vdare are Michelle Malkin, Steve Sailer, and Brimelow’s wife (40 years his Junior) Lydia Sullivan Brimelow , who uses the alias “Athena Kerry” on the Vdare site.

Brimelow’s latest ties to hate seem to be from the newly created college organization called “Youth For Western Civilization.” Brimelow was listed as this group’s sponsor along with Morton Blackwell’s Leadership Institute at the 2009 conservative conference, CPAC.

Youth for Western Civilization is headed by Vdare racist writer and contributor and hate crimes convicted felon Marcus Epstein, whom is not only the executive director for Pat Buchanan’s American Cause, but also executive director for Tom Tancredo’s anti-immigration hate PAC: Team America.

Youth for Western Civilization has been flagged by the SPLC and has been inciting strong opposition to their presences on the campuses of American University, North Carolina University, Vanderbilt University and now Providence College in Rhode Island.Brimelow is a regular at American Renaissance conferences, Holocaust denier gatherings as well as Council of Conservative Citizens meetings in the Washington DC area.

Hannity and Hal Turner

Hannity... Hal Turner

With the arrest of racist radio host Hal Turner, it’s probably not a bad idea for the public to take a deeper look into the dots connecting the extremism in the words of underground shock jock racism and the entertainment talking heads of mainstream media.
Hal Turner and Sean Hannity share more than just a passing connection.

In Max Blumenthal’s article Hannity’s Soul-Mate of Hate Blumenthal details the progression of Hannity and Turner’s relationship from Turner starting out as a caller into Hannity’s show to an off air relationship as connected spirits of like mind.
Blumenthal writes:

Turner was once a prominent activist in New Jersey’s Republican Party. To area conservatives, he was best known by his moniker for call-ins to the Sean Hannity Show, “Hal from North Bergen.” For years, Hannity offered his top-rated radio show as a regular forum for Turner’s occasionally racist, always over-the-top rants. Hannity also chatted with him off-air, allegedly offering encouragement to Turner as he struggled to overcome a cocaine habit and homosexual leanings. Turner has boasted that Hannity once invited Turner and his son on to the set of Fox News’s Hannity and Colmes. Today, Turner lurks on the fringes of the far right, spouting hate-laced tirades on his webcast radio show. Hannity, meanwhile, remains mum about his former alliance with the neo-Nazi, homing in instead on the supposed racism of black and Latino Democrats.

Today, Hannity tries to pretend he has never even heard of Hal, which is understandable, but it lacks honesty.

It was brought to light just recently during the 2008 presidential campaign, right on Hannity’s television spot on Fox News when Hannity believed he was being slick by inviting on Malik Shabazz of the extremist New Black Panther Party. The New Black Panther Party has such a controversial reputation that Obama had rejected their endorsement. Racial obsessed Hannity thought he was going to feed the fear of people of color to his hate driven base by trying to puppet stage a claim that Obama has associations with fringe ideologues.

Hannity lost his footing in his attempt at staging an attack on Obama by underestimating Shabazz’s knowledge of Hannity’s own ties.

As Jason Linkins from the Huffington Post reports the transcription of that confrontation during Hannity’s show as quoted from News Hounds:

Hannity added, “What I don’t think you’re understanding here, Malik, is that when you hear the minister of him for 20 years, when you hear the associations with Louis Farrakhan, one of the biggest racists and anti-Semites in the country, what you’re not understanding is, America hears extremism at its worst.”

Shabazz responded, “Let me ask you this. Are you to be judged by your promotion and association with Hal Turner?”

Hannity waved his arm around. “I don’t know anybody named – this is nonsense. I don’t…” Then Hannity changed his tune. “Sir, sir… That was a man that was banned from my radio show ten years ago, that ran a Senate campaign in New Jersey.”

Then, as Shabazz refused to stop talking or back down, Hannity, in a tacit admission, said, “I’m not running for president.”

“A neo Nazi, you backed his career,” Shabazz said.

Hannity answered, “That is an absolute, positive, lie and you’ve been reading the wrong websites…, my friend. Good try.

Actually, not only was it a good try, but a successful slam on putting a fail mark on Hannity’s poor attempt at propaganda.

What is the icing on the cake was Turner’s response to Hannity’s televised response to Shabazz, Turner posted on his site:

“Oh, yeah! We’re best of buds!”

I was quite disappointed when Sean Hannity at first tried to say he didn’t know me and then went on to say that I ran some senate campaign in New Jersey. In fact, Sean Hannity does know me and we were quite friendly a number of years ago.

When Hannity took over Bob Grant’s spot on 77 WABC in New York City, I was a well-known, regular and welcome caller to his show. Through those calls, Sean and I got to know each other a bit and at some point, I can’t remember exactly when, Sean gave me the secret “Guest call-in number” at WABC so that my calls could always get on the air.

Turner was released from jail yesterday, June 8 2009 at 2:30 am on a $25,000 bail and charged with “Inciting harm to property or persons” a felony which carries a jail sentence of 1 to 10 years in prison.

Racist Radio Host Hal Turner Arrested

Racist Internet Radio Host: Hal Turner

From DCIMC: http://dc.indymedia.org/newswire/display/146466/index.php

Racist Radio Host Hal Turner Arrested
Author Hate Report
Date Created 03 Jun 2009

For almost a decade it appeared as if something was protecting the offensive right wing radio host Hal Turner from law enforcement holding him to task over his outrageous racist threats on various ethnic groups and public officials.

The tide has finally turned, because as of June 3, 2009 4:00 PM Hal Turner has been residing in a New Jersey jail cell, arrested by the North Bergen NJ police for making a public call for the shooting of lawmakers and an ethics officer in the state of Connecticut.

Only a few days ago, Turner posted a photo of of Dr. George Tiller with the word “GOTCHA” over it.

From NJ.com:

“He..{Hal} is scheduled to appear in court here in New Jersey tomorrow to face extradition.

Police say Turner incited his blog readers “to take up arms” against Sen. Andrew McDonald and Rep. Michael Lawlor.

Police say Turner was angry over controversial legislation on Catholic parish finances. Police plan to charge him with inciting injury to persons or property when he is extradited to Connecticut”

Turner’s radio show just recently has been trying to make a come back after an approximately six month hiatus.

His shows are programed for Wednesdays at 9pm off of a blog radio site.

But, this wednesday night there was no show, but there was this post on his controversial hate blog “Turner Radio Network”:

“WEDNESDAY, JUNE 03, 2009
Hal Turner has been arrested…
North Bergen, NJ (TRN) — At about 4:00 this afternoon, Hal received a call from the North Bergen Police telling him to go to the Police Station because they had received a tip from a credible source about a death threat made against him and they needed to talk. He arrived at the station at about 4:10 and was arrested at 4:15. It seems that the state of Connecticut issued a warrant for his arrest for making “Harassing Communications”. There is no other information available at this time. At this point, any and all donations toward his defense would be greatly appreciated.

Quite obviously, the Hal Turner Show will not air tonight. All other shows will run as scheduled. Sphere: Related Content
AT 6/03/2009 04:59:00 PM 0 COMMENTS”

Where the outcome if this case is heading is going to be interesting to follow.

Turner had quite a following for his extremist language on The Hal Turner radio show until 2006.

Turner’s down fall was when he became a target for the internet hacker hive mind “Anonymous” after Turner posted the personal info of underage “Anons” who placed spoof calls during his racist radio show December 20th 2006.

According to Encyclopedia Dramatica, “Anons” and “Channers” gave Turner warning to take the info down, Turner refused and the rest was “epic” history.

There is a very well documented (and “lulzy”) account of what happened from there posted here

The battle between Turner and the internet “Chan/Anon fest” went on for some time until they finally hacked into Turner’s e-mail, found and published an e-mail Turner had sent to the NJ FBI office reporting IP’s of his fan base who were posting in the comment section of his blog.

Turner was then exposed as informing, which his White Power fan base did not care for, his listenership depleted and Turner shut down his show.

Six months later, after the 2008 election, Turner decided to start back up his quest for radio shock jock racism.

Turner has been struggling to gain his extremist listenership back to his old numbers, but has been FAILing to do so.

In trying to post more and more extreme rhetoric, Turner was probably hoping to bring back his old base and to raise the $5000 a month he was once able to convince his followers to send into him.

Turner is hopefully sitting in his jail cell rethinking the direction of his life right now.

Whatever the outcome of his charges are going to be, hopefully he will learn that selling hate has a heavy tax on it’s income.

UPDATE: Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio says Harold “Hal” Turner declined to waive extradition at an initial court appearance Thursday. DeFazio said no date has been set for an extradition hearing.
