Students have chained themselves to the chairs of a board meeting of the Tuscon Unified School District in defense of high school Ethnic Studies program, derailing the introduction of a measure that would eliminate it.

Just days before the American Renaissance has its national conference in North Carolina, ALIPAC has released a statement defending the race-science publication. The American Renaissance recently made national headlines when Fox News released a memo stating that the Department of Homeland Security was directing “strong suspicion” at the publication. It was later reported that DHS had nothing to do with the statement, and Fox didn’t provide where its source came from.

That hasn’t stopped ALIPAC—which is based in North Carolina—from calling for a Congressional investigation of DHS in a statement released January 21:

“ALIPAC is calling on members of Congress to investigate why the Department of Homeland Security sent a memo to the media containing false information implying that the Tucson shooter Jared Loughner, was motivated by Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ religion and stance in favor of Amnesty [sic] for illegal immigrants.”

As Politico reported ten days before ALIPAC released its statement, the erroneous memo came from the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center, not the DHS. The memo was improperly sourced by Fox News, but even that was determined over a week ago.

The Christian Science Monitor referred to the American Renaissance as an anti-immigrant group, but the primary focus of the publication is race science rather than immigration policy. The February 2011 issue discusses migration to Europe more than the United States, and does so in the context of racial preservation. It also assumes an all-white audience:

“In Life After the Collapse, Thomas Jackson reviews Archeofuturism by French author Guillaume Faye (written in 1998 and only recently translated into English). This remarkable book peers into the near and distant future, and sees “multiculturalism” running its course, leading to the fracturing and disintegration of Western nations, and speculates on what will emerge from the rubble. Dr. Faye fully recognizes the significance of race and, while strongly connected to the European peoples and their cultures, he prescribes a complete revolution of the current order as soon as possible to maximize the chances for the long-term survival of our descendants.”

The American Renaissance will hold its major conference February 4-6 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The conference will focus on “Defending the West.” The announcement of the conference states that “Ours is an era of fear and self-censorship. Virtually no whites are willing to break taboos about racial differences in IQ, the costs of “diversity,” or the challenges of non-white immigration. We are different. We believe these are vital questions.”

ALIPAC has made a serious error by perpetuating misinformation long after it was determined to be faulty. They are calling for unwarranted investigations into DHS, stirring opposition and fear of the federal government. They have done so in the defense of an organization that promotes policy that favors whites over other groups—more blatantly speaking, in defense of an organization that supports white supremacy. Any public official that is contacted by ALIPAC supporters about this issue should rebuke the organization immediately.

No one can justify a hate crime. Here is a new video from Cuéntame discussing the climate of hate and the increasingly terse language being used against immigrants in the past decade.

The New Racism finds a home in the Deep South. Surprised?

Mississippi’s Senate just passed its own version of Arizona’s SB1070 law, which is currently being challenged in Federal court on constitutional grounds.

Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour will likely sign the bill, but it will face major scrutiny as Barbour floats his name as a potential 2012 presidential contender. Barbour recently made headlines by implying that White Citizens’ Councils were a benevolent organization due to their opposition to the Ku Klux Klan, when in fact the only difference was that the White Citizens’ Councils used business power to maintain White Supremacy instead of the violent tactics preferred by the Klan.

The White Citizens’ Councils became the Council of Conservative Citizens in 1988, after a previous name change (to the Citizen’s Council of America) in 1956. The WCC and the CCA used the same newspaper, The Citizens’ Council.
