Whence the Jew-haters?
From an e-mail exchange that was sent to me, here is the practical explanation of why there were so many anti-Semites at the American Renaissance conference:
One person writes:
Not promoting the next conference on Stormfront would go a long way in decreasing the amount of anti-Semites and real haters. Don Black and a few of the other “veterans” know how to behave at the AR conferences. It seems that the only problems were the “new” people who were probably attending their first AR event and, of course, Duke. They were the ones going out of their way to make their views known and to make Jews feel unwelcome. As I recall, at past conferences, the Stormfront types would gather in little groups and discuss their views in private. This year they were out in the open and acted like they wanted to “take over” the event. The one saving grace is that C-SPAN did not cover the event.Another person writes:
In culling through Stormfront’s post concerning the AR Conference I came across these factoids: 1. Stormfront.org paid out $5,000.00 so poorer members could attend the conference. 2. Stormfront listed the avatar names of at least 50 members who attended. 3. Stormfront members were sleeping four to a room to cut costs.Another obvious reason there were so many Jew-haters present is that once Jared Taylor made the brilliant decision to allow David Duke to attend, Duke told all his friends to come. Thus the reason for the unprecedentedly high number of attendees at the conference, 300, which conference organizers were excited about, was the same reason for the unprecedented anti-Semitic manifestations at the conference.
Perhaps it’s time for Jared Taylor to adopt Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s principle: Less is More.
