gay-black-kkkTHE BNP is the friendly party that lets anyone join. Yep, even those non “indigenous people” who came her from Rome, Germany, Africa and places even more remote than Leicester. A reader in the US writes:

Hey, did you know the BNP (griffin and others) were still coming over speaking?

We do now. The Southern Poverty Law Centre reports:

White National Event Canceled Yet Again

After being jilted by yet another hotel, the white nationalist American Renaissance conference was cancelled again last week — this time, for good. The conference, scheduled for Feb. 19-21, had been held biannually since 1994 and featured prominent academic racists, far-right politicians and other extremists from around the world. Over the past several months, however, anti-racists persuaded four Washington D.C.-area hotels to drop the conference, infuriating American Renaissance leader Jared Taylor…

According to Taylor, more than 250 people had paid $135 (excluding hotel and banquet costs) to attend the three-day conference. This year’s event featured 10 speakers, including British National Party chairman Nick Griffin and racist filmmaker Craig Bodeker.

Some background:

American Resistance, a newsletter published by Taylor, promotes pseudoscientific research which argues that non-whites are genetically and morally inferior; their conference seeks to bring together various right-wing racist people and ideas. Infoshop News adds that:

“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”.”

But the show went on, sort of:

Update: Taylor later claimed on his website that American Renaissance held a program last weekend after some supporters showed up despite the cancellation notice. He said three of the people who’d been scheduled to speak were present: former Klan attorney Sam Dickson, anti-immigrant author Louis March and Taylor. Other speakers (not on the original program) were British National Party candidate Matthew Tait, Canadian white supremacist Paul Fromm and lawyer Joe Sibley. Taylor did not disclose the location of the meeting or how many people attended.

Now how many were black…
