In our ongoing mission to provide top quality lulz by documenting the downward spiral of horrible people, we revisit future prison inmate Jamie Jo Corne. Chronicle.Su reports:
INTERNET — Former convicted street racer, recidivist, and prison escapee Jamie Jo Corne was, until October 2011, a central figure for Anonymous hacktivists as founder and executive editor of Presstorm, progenitor to the controversial YourAnonNews corporation.
Corne leveraged her powerful voice as head of Presstorm to criticize the nascent Occupy movement, a very unpopular opinion among her allies in Anonymous. This coupled with mounting evidence of Corne’s involvement in overtly racist marches and exposure of her criminal past spelled the end to Corne’s days in Anonymous, and Corne’s staff at Presstorm dramatically mutinied as Denial of Service attacks shuttered the site.
In the wake of this traumatic loss of power, Corne caught herself from the fall in an impressive feat of mental gymnastics which inflated her own sense of control when it was at its weakest. By framing her involvement with Anonymous as an “investigation” – 10 Months Into a Deviant Subculture on the Internet – Corne invoked the ever-popular “social engineer” alibi, inventing manipulations and exaggerations beyond those she was already well known for.
In the years since Presstorm, Corne has slipped out of Anonymous regalia and into a redneck guise. After history replayed itself in the recent Anonymous-like falling-out with the Patriot Freedom Network, Corne posted an intensely racist rant which culminated in a cringe-inducing call for farmers to ride their herds into Washington DC and burn all their paper money.
Corne also, unbelievably, seems to have openly called for violent action against President Obama, threatening, (7:30) “This fuckin’ nigger in the office from Kenya has GOT TO GO! . . . Niggers are traitors against the American People! You wanna be a nigger? Fine be a nigger, but you’ll get a bullet in your fuckin’ head for doin’ so.”
In the direct aftermath of Corne’s permanent ban from Patriot Freedom Network, Corne also stated that she has only one year left to live due to terminal metastatic brain cancer. Is this cancer yet another manipulative ruse inspired by butthurt, like her so-called Anonymous Investigation? If Corne is truly on death’s door, this racist message hinting at presidential assassination only seems all the more terrifying.
We can’t begin to describe how overjoyed we are with Circle Ansuz’s deconstruction of Stephen McNallen and the AFA. Like we said before, every time we’ve probed this disturbing tendency within the pagan scene, we’ve hit brick walls, hostility or half-assed weasel-worded apologies and excuses. The most common excuse we’ve heard was the “in the spirit of Frith, we don’t speak ill of our brothers and sisters in the heathen community.” Excuse me? There’s a loathsome, glad-handing, grinning creature wriggling under the skin of your community and you claim you’re either unwilling or unable to talk about his batshit-crazy racial theories because it will upset people? To niflhel with that garbage.
To that end, Circle Ansuz has produced a stunning amount of information about the cancerous sludge known as the Asatru Folk Assembly and McNallen himself. So much so, in fact, that we can’t republish it here without the posts becoming ungainly. They’ve completed their expose on McNallen and the AFA, so we’re going to link to each and every one of their articles in this post. The web of deceit spun by McNallen and the hordes of sycophants he’s bred specifically for the purpose of deflecting criticism are wide and vast, so it takes a long series such as this to fully dissect them all.
Stephen McNallen and Racialist Asatru Part 1: Metagenetics and the South Africa Connection
-Details McNallen’s goofy theories on why the souls of white people are incompatible with people of other races, as if they are distinct species. Also goes into McNallen’s time being a fanboy of a South African death squad.
Stephen McNallen and Racialist Asatru Part 2: The Roots of Racialized Religion
-Shows the historical movements that McNallen’s AFA draws its inspiration from, and how the AFA’s philosophy is interchangeable and complimentary with its preceeding, overtly racist forebears.
Stephen McNallen and Racialist Asatru Part 3: In His Own Words
-McNallen opining that all illegals immigrants need to be immediately deported to Mexico, his weasely comments about when AFA members were spotted at the racist National Policy Institute conference in 2011, and why he supports the white supremacist lie of “global white genocide.”
Stephen McNallen Part 4: Stella Natura and What Can be Done
-McNallen’s involvement with the Stella Natura festival and profiles of some of the more vile white supremacist acts, with a special focus on the violent white supremacist Robert N. Taylor, of the act Changes.
The Leadership Institute is one of the leading training organizations to produce conservative values on all levels of policy and politics. In the past, they have not been especially friendly to the ideals of multiculturalism; they have been notorious for sponsoring a racist college organization called “Youth for Western Civilization” and partnering with the anti-immigrant hate site VDare.com.
Youth for Western Civilization has since disbanded– its splintered remnants have congealed under the bloated tutelage of Matthew Heimbach into the “White Student Union”– and are now making flirty, doe-eyed glances at the nativist / fascist group American Third Position. But where does that leave Leadership Institute?
In a desperate cry for attention, The Leadership Institute, Faith and Freedom Coalition (from Christian Coalition founder Ralph “babyface” Reed) and the Heritage Foundation flooded out a mass robo-call tonight informing anyone they have ever had contact with to PLEASE PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE pay attention to them and attend their bright, shiny, new spectacle of embracing multiculturalism and the Hispanic community.
To quote the Leadership Institute website:
What you will learn Issues That Unite: Latinos & Conservatism The Leadership Institute, in partnership with the Heritage Foundation and Faith & Freedom Coalition, has developed events to communicate more effectively the values that bring Hispanics and conservatives together. The series of events, Issues That Unite: Latinos & Conservatism, will give participants insight into the nexus of politics and the media. Topics to be covered include: Public Policy: Hispanics, Economics, Education, & Family, Working with Hispanic Media, and Effectively Communicating Our Values. – See more at: http://www.leadershipinstitute.org/training/school.cfm?SchoolID=22781#sthash.BmA9cZHJ.dpuf “
A Partnership with the “Heritage Foundation” ? THAT Heritage Foundation? The same Heritage Foundation that Leadership Institute pal Peter Brimelow promised “Grassroots ‘Sentiments of National Identity’ Will Defeat Immigration Reform?” (Brimelow seems to have a deep affection for the Heritage Foundation; he met his young wife Lydia when she was interning for them.)
Is this a sign that the pro-white/anti-immigrant faction of the conservative movement is losing?
Times are changing, but what will this mean for the faction of the conservative movement like NumbersUSA and the rest of the anti-immigration set and their relationship with the GOP? Sit back, make some popcorn, this is going to get interesting.
The streets outside the Marriot Wardman Park hotel in Washington DC were alive on Friday, February 10th, 2011, as protestors affiliated with Occupy DC, the SEIU, the AFL-CIO and a host of allied organizations descended on the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, also known as CPAC. Participants traveled from as far away as Pittsburgh and New York City to demonstrate against money in politics, income inequality and a profusion of crimes and abuses perpetrated against the poor, working and middle classes.
CPAC does little to hide the fact that it is a product of and for the elite rich, with a full pass to the conferences costing 200 dollars, a one day pass at 75 dollars and media passes only awarded to a select few that have passed a rigorous background check that would make the FBI jealous. Due to this, we weren’t able to cover the most interesting of these conferences, the tantalizingly named “THE FAILURE OF MULTICULTURALISM” hosted by anti-immigrant fanatic Peter Brimelow and the hate group Youth for Western Civilization. Viking fetishist Kevin DeAnna and alcoholic nuisance Marcus Epstein were present, while Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and notable xenophobe John Derbyshire delivered speeches. Predictably, they chose to cower behind security checkpoints, bulletproof glass and hundreds of non-white police officers instead of daring to wade into the sea of untermenschen. Also present were Kevin Lamb from the white nationalist ProEnglish, Tim Dionisopoulos from Youth for Western Civilization, Jim Gilchrist from The Minute
klanmen and notorious snitch Brandon Darby.
The specter of thousands of union steelworkers, maids and politically charged citizens exercising their fist amendment rights outside of a hotel was apparently enough to terrify attendees of CPAC, who hid behind phalanxes of riot police, barely venturing to the windows to snatch a peek at the lives they have been frittering away for the sake of greater profit. Referred to as the old stand-bys of “purveyors of chaos” and “union thugs” by histrionic fear-mongers in the right-wing echo-chamber, the demonstration on Friday was largely peaceful, despite vehement fulminations by apologists for the 1% to force all of these “welfare recipients” into “work camps and gas chambers.”
This has been the first major protest organized against CPAC in its nearly forty-year run.
White Supremacist “Conservatives” hold Gatherings at the National Press Club and Ronald Reagan Building on 9/11 weekend in DC
9/11 weekend is already a tense weekend in the DC area, with remembrance events, fears of repeated attacks and bumped up security reminders with check points and street cops walking around the metro with shotguns.
To add to this mess, a white supremacist contingent of conservatives who often refer to themselves as “Paleo-Conservatives” attempted to galvanize support via a white nationalist political conference to build a unified base. Unlike the “Neo-Conservatives”– of whom they regard as more beholden to the evils of multi-culturalism than “true conservatives” are supposed to be– the Paleo-cons openly advocate for “white America”.
Richard Spencer was the main organizer of the event which was sponsored by the pro-white advocate group called The National Policy Institute or NPI. Spencer was recently asked to leave TakiMag over the possibility he was too racist for Taki.
The handout flier for this event was titled: “The Majority Strategy”- Why The GOP Must Win White America” and we uploaded it:
National Policy Institute- The Majority Strategy (18mb .PDF)
The speakers at this conference included the waning shock jock from Political Cesspool, James Edwards— whose persona is a cross between a backwoods used car salesman and a racist skinhead, and The American Renaissance publisher Jared Taylor.
Until recently, Taylor was the main organizer of these pro-white conferences, but recently they have been shut down by strong community opposition.
Mike Flugennock from Sinkers.org was also there and with his humorous style summed up the conference in his very informative video:
The events were a press conference held at the National Press Club in DC on September 9, 2011 and their conference was located at the Ronald Reagan Building in DC on September 10, 2011.
My, it’s been awhile, hasn’t it? Don’t worry, gentle readers– we haven’t gone anywhere.
We subscribe to a heck of a lot of email listservs, and among them JihadWatch and the David Horowitz Freedom Center are among our most prolific subscriptions. Every day, we’re treated to a landslide of the most paranoid and ridiculous delusions about the coming floodtide of fifth-column Muslim ninja insurgent terrorists, walking amongst us– unseen!
On August 26, 2011, Center for American Progress released a large and comprehensive report entitled Fear, Inc.The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America, which details the funding and propagation of Islamophobic rhetoric in the United States.
This report (which can be viewed in its entirety here) does little more than report publicly available information about who funds organizations like Jihadwatch and figures like David Horowitz and Pam Geller, then goes to on to document the tangible effects this sort of rhetoric has on society.
The existence of such a report in the wake of Anders Behring Breivik’s mass slaughter in Norway is timely and necessary, and the exercise of bringing transparency to shady matters is the epitome of freedom of speech and freedom of the press. That Breivik was a fan (if not a pen-pal) of Geller’s makes his inclusion in this report all the more salient.
This report therefore directly threatens the careers of the members of the cloyingly titled “Stop Islamisation of America” movement.
Naturally, the content of the emails changed to apoplectic fits about how the “Islamic Supremacist Propaganda Machine” is silencing critics of Islam and is waging a war against freedom of speech.
David Horowitz and Robert Spencer seized this opportunity to needle their audience for hard cash– claiming the best way to defend freedom of speech was to send them as much money as you possibly could.
Here is one of Horowitz’s begging and BAWWWWing e-mails:
Your reward for throwing your money away on this “heroic act of patriotic freedom-fighting?” A copy of David Horowitz’s latest book. ( OH JOY!) Freedom isn’t free, you know.
The Center for American Progress report is obviously not an assault on freedom of speech. This is more apparent when it is compared with the actions of the groups it exposes– who routinely demonize and scapegoat all members of a religion as dangerous and duplicitous savages. Does applauding people who commit mass murder as a valid form of “combat” against said religion count as “defending freedom of speech?” Only in the mind of the murderer.
The only real difference between blindly ranting that all opposition to “pro-America” activists is funded by an Islamic conspiracy or a Jewish conspiracy is the site on which it’s published. If we were to simply change “Muslim” to “Jew” in your screeds, it would be indistinguishable from the anti-Semitic bile that is pumped out of Stormfront or VNN; sorry, Mr.Horowitz– that makes you a racist.
MORE TRANSPARENCY ON WHO IS FUNDING RACIST POLITICAL GROUPS
Another impressive report on transparency, issued on August 30, 2011, was produced by Center for New Community— in which it details the organizational and financial structure of the anti-immigration movement in the US. As it turns out– and as we have reported in the past— all of the major anti-immigration organizations in the US have been founded by, receive funding from or are otherwise associated with a man with white supremacist ties named John Tanton.
It is also worthy to note that the Scaife Foundations that supply Tanton with money are related by blood to the same Richard Mellon Scaife that funds a bulk of the anti-Muslim bigotry in this country and are also mentioned in the above Center for American Progress report.
Oh, what a tangled web.
Washington DC- On October 2nd 20210, thousands of people lined the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and the Reflecting Pool to voice their support for labor and union causes for the One Nation Working Together Rally
Not all march-goers, however, display the same slavish devotion to “message unity” as others, many people carried signs excoriating Obama’s policies on drone strikes in Pakistan, others highlighted Obama’s continuation of Bush-era encroachments upon civil liberties, while others still voiced their displeasure at the lack of traction immigrant rights have been witnessing under the Obama administration.
Supporting groups all seemed to stage their own feeder marches to the gathering on the Mall; CASA de Maryland and the Service Employees International Union held a pro-immigrant rally on the west lawn of the Capitol while a diversity of Unions ranging from the Teamsters to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers brought a healthy number of people to the rally.
Most refreshing was the sizable contingent of Socialists, numbering in at about two hundred, representing both the Socialist Party USA and Ohio Socialist senate candidate Dan La Botz. Underscoring the fact that Obama and his policies are anything but “socialist,” they could be heard among the throngs of people chanting “Obama ain’t no Socialist! We are! WE ARE!”
There is also a report back from DCDirect Action News
Arlington Va- To protest Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell’s draconian, heavy handed and ridiculous assault on the immigrant community, Tenants and Workers United staged a protest in front of the Arlington, Virginia branch of the DMV on Wednesday, September 15, with nearly one hundred people and members of LiUNA present in solidarity. McDonnell dropped any pretense of “only targeting illegal immigrants” by specifically assaulting the rights of legal, documented immigrants by disqualifying the government-issued “Temporary Protected Status” card as a form of acceptable identification to obtain a driver’s license.
In the wake of the deaths of three Benedictine nuns by a Bolivian national who was driving under the influence, McDonnell ordered the Virginia DMV to disqualify the “Temporary Protected Status” card as an acceptable form of government-issued identification for people to obtain driver’s licenses from the state of Virginia. The TPS identification is the primary (and in many cases, only) proof of legal residency for asylum seekers or other people who are legitimately working through the immigration system.
Protesters decried the disastrous effects this new legislation would bring to the immigrant community, as legal residents who depend on their ability to drive to earn a living will now be severely crippled. Glenda Herman, a US citizen, participated at today’s rally and put it plainly: “My husband has TPS and in two years will lose his driver’s license because of the Governor’s decision. Then he will lose his job as a driver. […] What future do my children have? How will we pay for college? How will we pay for food?”
The “law and order” facade of the anti-immigrant movement continues to wear thin. How do they expect anyone to have any respect for the law when they make it a crime to be brown?
