Happy Fifth Anniversary, have some lulz!

Happy Birthday To Us!

Happy Birthday To Us!

This marks the fifth year of Lady Liberty’s Lamp, and we’re glad you’ve been with us for this long. We’re especially thankful to all of the hare-brained trolls who have provided us bucketloads of side-splitting laughs. So, for this landmark anniversary, let’s take a look at one of the funnier half-wits to darken our towels.

Say hello to Joe Alice Daves of Kirkland, Arizona. Joe believes he’s a “libertarian heathen” and has some very mean things to say about us! Let’s take a look at this stirring, erudite skewering of a few our posts. Or not. We’ll keep his spelling and formatting intact, for added flavor. If you’re wondering why paying attention to this nobody, we’re highlighting him as a typical Asatru Folk Assembly apologist– sure, the spelling might be a little different, but the arguments are the same. Almost as if they’re all reading off a script.

I know the post is over a year old, but it took me this long to formulate a response

Translation: I know the post is over a year old, but it took me this long to formulate a response

Direct from his failure of a blog!


the liberty lamp blog has to my knowledge done two posts on Steve and the AFA these are both filled with hate speech and ridiculous arguments against us.


Oh boy. Someone isn’t familiar with the concept of a “repost.” Circle Ansuz is the author of the posts in question. We just added our own comments. Ridiculous arguments? You mean evidence backed up by comprehensive citations and sources? Dear me, must be that whole “reality has a liberal bias” thing again. Drat!

first both posts begin with images of Nazi symbolism a cheap stunt to shock and horrify their readers ,

And this person can’t read a caption either. I mean, if someone makes a post about subject X, then posts a picture of subject X and adds a caption referencing subject X, they certainly must be completely unrelated and only posted for shock value. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck– well, it must be a refrigerator.

second they attempt to use arrogance and “logic” to argue against the theory of meta genetics and genetic memory here is one example when referring to another article they posted the link to “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”

Wait! That’s point two? You mean that complaining about the fact that you can’t understand how an old cult obsessed with racial spiritualism is related to a new cult obsessed with racial spiritualism constitutes “point one?” This is the type of mental athlete that the AFA sports as its champions? Sigh.

But why did you leave off the bit about how McNallen was an ardent, foaming supporter of South African death squads? Are you ashamed of your cult leader’s past? Tsk tsk, such disobedience means you’ll get half your serving of gruel for dinner! But enough of that– is there any actual refutation of what Circle Ansuz laid out? You know, any proof that Steven McNallen didn’t actually say those things that he actually said? No? This isn’t a refutation or a rebuttal, this is you being dense.

and another ” he quite literally believes that the souls of different races are as incompatible as an Allen wrench to a flat-head screw”

Yes, that’s right, that’s the whole concept of “aryans” not being able to be reincarnated as “non aryans.” Where’s the rebuttal or refutation?

you can not argue against a religious belief you either believe in or you don’t ( I think human history should have taught us that by now )


Uh, no.

Wait, what? I can’t even parse this properly. Do you mean to say that it is not possible to argue against a religious belief that you do or do not believe in, or do you mean to say that arguing against a religious belief is impossible in and of itself? In either case, there are millennia of atheist philosophers who stridently disagree. Lest I be penalized for engaging in a straw-man argument, I’ll take your argument as written: How did history prove that it is impossible to argue against a religious belief? You have never actually provided any evidence to support this claim. Of course, this whole statement is preposterous– any subject can be argued. Refusing to accept the existence of those arguments doesn’t make them go away, it weakens your own position to a point where the only thing propping up your tissue of lies is the blind fervor of your adherents. Force is no substitute for intellect. This head-in-the-sand approach seems to be pretty typical of AFA apologists.

and sounding condensed to get people to agree with you is a older cheat stunt then propaganda.

Did you mean “condescending?” We only do that because it’s funny to laugh at people who are so desperately trying to push half-baked racist puffery about how non-whites are genetically incapable of being as spiritually “advanced” as “pure whites.” If there’s anyone more deserving of mockery and derision than the people trying to build a new Thule Society, it’s the people who act as feeble apologists for these crackpots. People like you.

third if different races evolved to look differently then why would they not be spiritual different as well ( see doesn’t sound so goofy does it?)

This makes as much sense as the idiotic creationist trope of “if man evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?” You’re making a straw man argument. There are spiritual differences between cultures, and there are significant similarities– but this isn’t the position of the AFA, and you know that. The position of the AFA is that non-whites are incompatible with “white spirituality.” This isn’t a question of whether or not different cultures have different religious practices, we’re talking about how the AFA perpetuates the notion that Europeans have a homogenous monoculture through the asinine theory that “white” people are genetically and spiritually incompatible with other races– as if we’re talking about dogs and fish interbreeding. The mixed race female cosplayers on your facebook page can attest to the fallacy of your position.

fourth they make many other bigoted comments against us

“Waah, someone’s being mean to me on the internet! I’m going to call them a bigot because it sounds good even though I have no idea what the word actually means!” Have we or Circle Ansuz ever made any derrogatory statements about heathens, pagans or non-christian religions? Of course not. We make derrogatory statements about racist piles of shit who are trying to legitimize their backwards, paranoid and intellectually bankrupt desires for race wars under the guise of spirituality, as if having a minority religious belief is a magical shield against criticism. It’s not “bigotry” to point out that your spiritual leader thought that killing people for fun and profit was a jolly good idea, nor is it “hate speech” to expose links between someone trying to act squeaky clean and neo-nazi groups– these are things called “facts.” We’re sorry that you’re offended by the ugly truth.

like this one “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

This isn’t what “bigoted” means.


So “loyalty to your folk” means apologizing for and covering up a racist scam artist? It means crushing dissent and flinging the terms “racist” and “bigot” at anyone who dares question your litany of deceit? It means unquestioningly swallowing demonstrable hogwash in the mistaken belief that ideological purity and subservience to a deranged fool with a Napoleon complex is the path to spiritual liberation? Hey man, if you don’t want people classifying your dearly held beliefs as a bunch of racist garbage, it might help for you to, you know, distance yourself from racist garbage. Unless you actually are a racist pile of shit– in which case you should stop being such a vile coward and admit it. At least the goose-stepping idiots with uniform fetishes are proud to admit that they’re racist buffoons.

these are hate filled arguments and false claims of racism against us another example when they refer to the AFA and steve as and i quote “the cancerous sludge known as the Asatru Folk Assembly and McNallen himself”
in conclusion this is just hate speech if you want to learn about the AFA go to rune stone.com

Arizona’s Sam Crump Get’s PUNKED!!!!!!

We are huge fans of the brilliant videographer Dennis Gilman aka Humanleague002.

He is amazing at exposing the BS the good people of AZ are facing right now and puts his work together brilliantly.

In his latest video he confronts joker Sam Crump, who is running for congress, on his made up “facts” *cough* *cough* about “TERRORISTS!!!!”

We would laugh, but it is AZ and we know how stupid AZ politics are, so we just feel sorry for the sane people down there.

Report from Humanleague002

I caught former State Rep. Sam Crump doing interviews with the media outside Sandra Day O’Connor U.S. Courthouse last week while waiting for the first Lawsuit against SB 1070 to finish. Since KTAR and others lacked the integrity to challenge Crump on his info, I felt obligated to at least try.

Crump boasts he co-sponsored SB 1070 and also is proud of supporting Arizona’s Employer Sanctions law which has cost tax payers almost 6 million dollars and netted only 2 convictions in 3 years. He is now running for Congress in CD3. Like most Republican Politicians he uses fear to motivate people to vote for him and disregards facts about the Arizona border and immigration. So far they’ve misinformed the public on murder, rape, welfare, kidnappings, beheadings, disease and even terrorism. But what disturbs me the most is the lack of respect they show towards human life…..unless it’s one white rancher.

Political opportunists like Russell Pearce, Jan Brewer and others cannot stop exploiting the unsolved murder of Robert Krantz yet never mention the murders of 9 year old Brisenia Flores and her father by Minutemen or the more recent murder of Juan Verela now listed as a hate crime. White privilege is alive and well in Arizona. It has become perfectly acceptable in most circles.

Hypocrite Arizona Spits in the Face of American 3rd Position Party and Intends to Return Donation

Despite the fact that the Arizona SB1070 law was created by white supremacist Russell Pearce, Arizona got caught with their hands in the donations cookie jar holding funds from the racist American 3rd Position Party for their defense of the Federal government’s law suit against them.

Now word has it they are frantically sifting through their donor cache to find this donation with the intent of returning it to the group.

Pueblo Politics: Hate donations to 1070 legal fund prompt inquiry

Rhonda Bodfield | Posted: Thursday, July 15, 2010 9:56 am

Gov. Jan Brewer’s office is poring through thousands of donations to the legal defense fund she set up in the wake of challenges to the state’s new immigration law, looking for contributions from hate groups.

The search is coming after the white supremacist group, American Third Position — whose mission statement says it “exists to represent the political interests of White Americans because no one else will” — announced on its website that it made a “triple-digit donation” to the fund.

“We support all constructive endeavors by private citizens, businesses, local governments — or in this case a sovereign state — to stem and reverse the browning of America,” the site states, adding Arizona’s statute represents the best opportunity to reduce this number.

“We will reject any funds from racist organizations,” said Brewer spokesman Paul Senseman, adding the governor has dedicated several staff to the effort and hopes to complete the search “as quickly as possible.”

The difficulty, of course, is ferreting those donations out, since the roughly $1.2 million in funding has come from 24,000 individuals from nearly every state.

Pima County Democratic Party Chairman Jeff Rogers said he’s not surprised at the reported funding. “For people to suggest there’s not some sort of prejudice and hate faction out there that’s enjoying this immigration debate is ridiculous,” he said. “That’s not to say everyone is like that, but certainly there are hate groups that are part of the immigration debate.”

He said that’s why it’s incumbent on mainstream Republicans to speak out against hatred, especially since he added “the tea party has been problematic in this area as well,” although he clarified the local tea party has been “pretty tolerant.”

Bob Westerman, the head of the local GOP, said it’s a stretch to say those elements are a natural outgrowth of the legislation. It’s clearly a fringe group, he said, that is “not indicative of the main body of Americans who support 1070. It’s something both parties have to be aware of and it sounds as though the governor is working to identify those donations to take care of that.”

The amusing part of this whole ordeal it that the SB1070 law was created by white supremacist Russ Pearce!

Let us look at some of Pearce’s history:


In October 2006, Russell Pearce forwarded an email from National Alliance, a white separatist group, to a group of supporters.
The email titled “Who Rules America” criticized black and white intermixing and Jews in the media for promoting multiculturalism and racial equality, for depicting “any racially conscious White Person” as a bigot, and for presenting the Holocaust as fact.
He quickly apologized. The article reports, “He does not agree with the sentiments in the article, but that the title and the first paragraphs about media bias appealed to him. He said the article had been forwarded to him by someone else and he would not have sent it if he had read it in its entirety.” He stated in one of his apologies, “Ugly the words contained in it really are. They are not mine and I disavow them completely. Worse still, the website links to a group whose politics are the ugliest imaginable.”

Pearce was also criticized for his association with white supremacist J.T. Ready.
Pearce endorsed Ready for Mesa City Council in 2006 and appeared with him at several rallies.
Pearce has since indicated he was unaware of Ready’s neo-Nazi affiliations at the time he made the endorsement.

In April 2008, Pearce sponsored a measure, Senate Bill 1108, that would prohibit students of Arizona universities and community colleges from forming groups based in whole or part on the race of their membership. Pearce said he didn’t want students indoctrinated with progressive ideologies. Critics have stated that the bill would ban groups that serve minority interests such as the Mexican American study program and the Black Business Students Association.

(Addendum: SB1108 did pass and has been sign by Gov. Brewer)

As an added note, Pearce, like many other white supremacists is a wife beater:

Russell Pearce “is possessed of a violent temper,” according to a 1980 court document signed by his wife LuAnne.

“Further, the husband, RUSSELL KEITH PEARCE, is possessed of a violent temper, and has from time to time hit and shoved the wife, the last time being on February 3 [1980], when he grabbed the wife by the throat and threw her down.”

We reported on the American 3rd Position Party’s recruitment of olympic gold medal winner Bob Richards in an earlier post

Conservative Legal Group Takes Up Defense With Friend of Nazis

Author of SB1070 Russell Pearce Has a Close Relationship to Local AZ Neo-Nazi J.T.Ready

As whacked out as the conservative movement has been as of late, they usually are careful about aligning themselves with those who play with neo-Nazis.

Looks like this isn’t the case with conservative legal group Judicial Watch who in the past have had a pretty good reputation for judicial activism and even have gone after their own side for the sake of honesty.

What happened?
They sold out to the big money funders of the anti-immigration movement and now they are standing in legal support of the author of the AZ “papers please” law Russell Pearce, who also happens to be bosom buddies with known AZ neo-Nazi J.T. Ready.
About Pearce and his Nazi connections from the Phoenix New Times

One thing that toupee will not hide is Pearce’s bigotry towards Mexicans and his unsavory connections to outright neo-fascists, such as Mesa’s J.T. Ready, who recently took part in a neo-Nazi demonstration in downtown Omaha, Nebraska. After the demo, members of the swastika-wearing National Socialist Movement and fellow travelers retired to a local farm where they lit giant swastikas afire, listened to hate-core music, slam-danced, and barbecued a Mexican and an Israeli flag. Ready also keeps a page on the NSM’s NewSaxon.org, a racist MySpace, “for Whites, by Whites.” And he’s attended the local neo-Nazi National Vanguard’s Winterfest event. Reportedly in his Scottish kilt. Ooh-la-la.

Ready’s a supporter of Pearce, and at a June anti-immigration rally at the State Capitol, the prejudiced pair spent almost all of their time with each other. They even appeared smiling and arm-in-arm in photos. In any other state, such damning pics would signal the end of a politician’s career. Here in AZ, they’re shrugged at by those in the nativist movement. That’s because so many nativists see nothing wrong with neo-Nazis or their beliefs, beliefs which dovetail with their own.

But in 2006, when Pearce was caught forwarding an anti-Semitic e-mail to his supporters — an e-mail from the neo-Nazi National Alliance, even Republicans bagged on him. None other than ultra-right Congressman J.D. Hayworth withdrew his support for Pearce’s reelection to the State House. Hayworth lost to Democrat Harry Mitchell, and Pearce was reelected, despite the e-mail eff-up and despite his previous endorsement of the Eisenhower administration’s “Operation Wetback,” a 1954 INS deportation program. The voters in Pearce’s State House district apparently had no problem with his views.

Does this phase the Washington DC based conservative group?

Apparently not!

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton Brags About Representing the AZ Pal of Neo-Nazis; Russell Pearce

Pearce wants a say in challenge to law

by Associated Press (July 14th, 2010 @ 4:59pm) 5

PHOENIX – The lawmaker who wrote Arizona’s new immigration law wants to have a say in a legal challenge to the law.
State Sen. Russell Pearce and other supporters of the law asked U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Wednesday for permission to file a “friend of the court” brief in a lawsuit by civil rights groups that are seeking to overturn the law.

Pearce was joined in the request by the union representing 17,000 Border Patrol agents and 18 congressmen from states such as California, Colorado, Indiana, Wyoming, Texas and North Carolina.

The watchdog group Judicial Watch also says it planned to make a filing on Pearce’s behalf to become part of a lawsuit that the U.S. Department of Justice filed in a bid to invalidate the law.

Arizona: It’s All About Racism and $$$$$’s

Arizona Rep John Kavanagh the epitomi of Racism and Greed

It appears that the legislators of AZ not only dislike the immigrants from south of the border because of their race, but, because of their lack of wealth.
From Terry Greene Sterling

“Rep. Kavanaugh announced that “illegals” who were Canadians could “stay” in Arizona because they have money and buy real estate.”

The fact that the immigrant community makes up a good deal of the AZ working class labor force has them viewed by the elected officials as the both disposable and not even human, hence, tag as “aliens”.

Nazis On the Border…The Video.

Dennis Gilman aka Humanleague002 does amazing work.

It was his video we used as a wonderful addition to our own coverage of an anti-immigration rally in AZ on June 5, 2010.

Here on the east coast, we have heard the rumors about the AZ Neo-Nazi NSM member J.T. Ready going to the border, armed to the hilt, to hunt down people trying to cross the border. But, we never really got the full story…until now.
This video has finally opened up the curtains wide to give us a good look at what this Nazi and his blood thirsty pals are actually up to.

(Thank you, Dennis!)
