SDAC Calls for Phone-in to Shut Down American Renaissance Conference!!!


From The Self Described Anarchist Collective

The white supremacist newsletter American Renaissance (AmRen) is holding their 9th annual conference at the Dulles Airport Westin in Herndon, VA on Feb 19-21. The conference is thinly disguised under the name of the New Century Foundation, AmRen’s sister organization. In response, we are asking for everyone to call the hotel and demand they cancel the conference.

Call them now. Make them revoke their contract:703-793-3366

What is AmRen and what do they believe?
AmRen, published by white supremacist Jared Taylor, is a newsletter that promotes pseudoscientific research which argues that non-whites are genetically and morally inferior. The AmRen conference is a melting pot of radical right-wing racist people and ideas. Previous attendees include Ku Klux Klan members (including former leader David Duke), neo-Nazis (such as Don Black), holocaust deniers, anti-immigration activists, and other ideologues promoting racial hatred. The Anti-Defamation League writes that AmRen,”promotes their views by attacking racial, ethnic, and religious diversity, which they call ‘one of the most divisive forces on the planet’ and therefore ‘dangerous'” and that, “many of North America’s leading intellectual racists have written for American Renaissance or have addressed the biennial American Renaissance conferences.”

Who is supposed to be at the conference this year?
The keynote speaker of the conference this year is Nick Griffin, head of the British National Party (BNP) and member of the European Parliament. His attendance at the conference is troubling, as he is expected to be placed in jail soon for violating a court order in the UK to open the membership of his political party to non-whites by January, 28th. Griffin isn’t a stranger to jail though; in 1996 he served a 9-month sentence after being found guilty of ‘publishing material likely to incite racial hatred’. Griffin’s speaking date in DC is even more disturbing because James Von Brunn, the neo-Nazi terrorist who shot and killed a security guard at the DC Holocaust Museum in June of 2009, was a member of the American Friends of the British National Party, and had been at events where Griffin Spoke. As well as being a racist, Griffin is notable for his antisemitism, and has referred to the Holocaust as the ‘Holohoax’.

Other speakers include:
Dan Roodt, who argues that blacks are genetically programmed to commit violent crime, and wrote in an article on January 13th, 2010 that, “In South Africa, the white IQ is somewhere around 100 whereas the average black IQ is about 70….Blacks generally prefer parties and festivals because a lot of them lack the mental ability to excel at such demanding subjects as mathematics and natural science which require logical reasoning and cognitive ability.” Roodt is the head of Pro-Afrikaans Action Group, a South African white supremacist organization.

Craig Bodeker, who said in an interview that, “The false concept of ‘racism’ has done more harm than just force decent white people into NOT looking-out for their own ethnic interests, while other groups are encouraged to look out for theirs. In fact, I’ll argue that it has BANKRUPTED AMERICA!”

Jared Taylor, who argues that blacks are “more psychopathic than whites”, and in an article about Hurricane Katrina wrote that, “when blacks are left entirely to their own devices, Western Civilization—any kind of civilization—disappears. And in a crisis, civilization disappears overnight.”

Sam G. Dickson, who advocates white nationalism and fights against non-white immigration, affirmative action, interracial marriage, homosexuality, and school integration.

Raymond Wolter, who argues against school racial desegregation, and believes that blacks have more natural IQ limitations than whites.

Wayne Lutton, who is the director of a group which publishes the racist Occidental Quarterly journal, and the antisemitic Occidental Observer magazine.

What you can do?
The Westin Washington Dulles Hotel has not made a decision yet on whether or not they are going to allow the conference to continue. There will be a massive phone-in all day on Tuesday, January, 19th, 2010. Please contact Westin Washington Dulles Hotel and let them know how you feel. The phone number is 703-793-3366. Here is an example of what you could say:

“Hello, my name is _____. I am concerned about the New Century Foundation conference which your hotel is planning to host on February 19th through 21st. I would hope that you will choose to uphold your company’s commitment to diversity and to ensuring the safety of your customers by choosing to cancel the conference. I understand that several of the conference speakers have gone to prison for inciting racial violence, and in the interest of the safety of the DC community, and of all people worldwide, I ask that you do not endorse these views. I see the decision to host this conference at your hotel as an irresponsible promotion of racist ideology, and if you choose not to cancel the conference, I will no longer be giving any of my business to the Westin, and will be advising all of my family and friends to do the same. Thanks for your time.”



But what about free speech?
From the ARA FAQ: “Free speech shouldn’t endanger people’s lives. You can’t yell “Fire!” in a crowded theater, because people will probably get hurt trying to get out. We think that hate speech acts in the same way – by trying to make certain kinds of people seem less than human and by glorifying violent acts against them – it’s just a matter of time before a follower or supporter of a hate group puts words into action We think that hate speech, turning people into scapegoats and targets for hateful action, is an abuse of free speech and that people’s lives are more important than the right of someone to publicly encourage others to target certain groups for a campaign of murder, rape, assault, genocide, ethnic cleansing and terror. If you actively go out of your way to tell people that 90% of the world’s population should be enslaved or that the best thing they can do is kill someone because of their skin color, religion, ethnic background, immigration status, sexual orientation, disability, etc., we think you’ve forfeited your right to free speech.


Isn’t it better to just ignore racists?
“Ignoring a problem never makes it go away. If hate groups encounter no opposition to their activities in a community, they’ll take that to mean that they have no opposition there willing to stand up to them and they will act accordingly. This makes it more likely that hate group activity will increase and they will start hurting people. This also isolates the people they target – people of color, immigrants, religious or ethnic minorities, gays and lesbians, the disabled, women, etc. – making them feel vulnerable and afraid because it seems like no one has their back.”

    Everybody has the right to gather, there are tens of thousands of organizations for blacks and every group thinkable, but if a group like American Renaissance says: let’s talk about the future of white people as a group, and as I understand they even have a lot of Jewish members. Then It is a “supremacist” group that should be smothered, they will speak on the future of white people, why do you insist that they hate other people or stand against others. If that was the case then La Raza and every black and Latino group organization should be shut down immediately.

      American Renaissance is not engaging in mere scholarly debate. It is a conference that draws its support, funding, guests and attendance from the violent white supremacist milieu. It has intentionally advertised itself on white supremacist sites like Stormfront. It’s listed on the Virginia Terrorism Threat Assessment as a racist group. Whites in America are not being systematically oppressed, nor have they had to deal with five hundred years of oppression– at best, AMREN is a group of spoiled, whiny, rich old farts. At worst, AMREN is a networking forum for people who honestly believe that the solution to all the world’s problems is the subjugation and/or extermination of all non-whites.

      Of course, “non-white” changes all the time- Irish Catholics, Slavs, Jews, southern Italians, Sicilians and people from the Iberian peninsula all rotate in and out of being considered “white.” So, what happens when this same group of psychotic idiots decide that South African whites aren’t “white enough?”

        “At worst, AMREN is a networking forum for people who honestly believe that the solution to all the world’s problems is the subjugation and/or extermination of all non-whites. ”

        Do you have any evidence to support that claim?

        Jared Taylor was raised in Japan and does not dispute the consistent finding that East Asian (those of Japanese, Chinese, Korean ancestry) have a higher group average IQ than other groups, including whites.

          Amren advertises on Stormfront. Here’s the link: http://www. Stormfront is a website devoted to white nationalism and other forms of violent white supremacy.

          Keystone State Skinheads– a violent neo-nazi skinhead gang in Pennsylvania that is trying to whitewash (ha!) their image by calling themselves “Keystone United”– has posted an interview of them at Amren in 2008. Here is the link: http://

          Amren’s site has a plethora of articles about how Hispanics spread disease, how all Blacks are murderous animals and all sorts of wholly fallacious conspiracy theories that are nothing more than the product of paranoid old men. It places the blame on all of the world’s problems on race and completely discards the complex sociopolitical climate in which these problems arose. It spits in the face of history.

    You are clearly mistaken about American Renaissance stance on these topics, Jarred Taylor has on numerous occasions stated that he does not believes in forced segregation and has never condoned any form of violence, in fact I am sure he would be outspoken against any form of violence, so if so called skinheads quote him, must we execute everyone ever quoted by a communist? No it is ridicules! What he does say is that he supports complete freedom of association. I am from South-Africa and my stance on these topics are much the same as Mr. Taylor’s, I believe that no government should ever have the right to discriminate and with that I mean (Apartheid, Affirmative action, Forced segregation, Forced integration, Arianisation/ Transformation”as ANC is practicing in South-Africa”). Individuals on the other hand should always retain the right to discriminate, otherwise you leave the state with the power to decide what it is. The same goes for so called hate speech, the government must never be allowed to, but if you say individuals may not, the state will decide what you may and may not criticize, and it quickly becomes a tool for government oppression.

    • Donny Donowitz

      He seems to condone violent people and violent actions. He himself might not actually say go out and start a race war or cause violence against people of color but you know it’s on his mind and it is also in the minds and hearts of many of his participants and friends. Stormfront in years past have done LIVE STREAMING RADIO from AmRen because his buddy, ex-con, former Klan leader and Stormfront founder, Don Black (who was arrested trying to invade the small country of Dominica with a load of assault weapons and bombs) was there with his whole crew, plus they even sent Jamie Kelso, Black’s personal assistant out too talk to media. Plus they have had members of the skinhead gang known as Keystone State Skinheads (who have gotten involved with the murder racket, not just violent street attacks and defacing veterans memorials) come to their events and might at this point come for “security purposes”. If Mr. Taylor didn’t want this violent element at his conference he would have given them the boot. Though he hasn’t, he supports them, they support him. Not too mention the other speakers don’t have too say go out and kill but their violent rhetoric and hateful speech towards people of all races (aside from the white race which is all glorious and powerful) creates that passion plus with all the people there who are criminals and have a violent streak it is just more fuel to the flames. Nobody in there is saying stop the violence. They aren’t actively trying to stop racist violence or prevent it they are helping promote it without actually doing it or directly saying it!

      Sure it’s great that you can put out the same tired argument that these people aren’t racist or violent as everyone does with every racist group every time it is brought up they are racist but we all see through you lies and whining.

    I went to the Stormfront link you provided, it is a forum any of there members could have placed that post, it is not an advertisement. The second link you provided is an interview with this other group on Stormfront radio, they may discuss the Amren conference, but how on earth must American Renaissance have control over something like that. I think you have a complete misconception about them, perhaps you should go to the conference, you can not intellectually dispel there position unless you know what it is, and you don’t have clue!

    • ladylibertyslamp

      Adrian -Jared Taylor has a very close working relationship with Don Black who runs Stormfront, it’s even in that thread.

      Jeese you’re stupid as the day is long!
