White Supremacists Fall Out (english)
27 Jan 2003
...
WHITE SUPREMACISTS I

About 75 neo-Nazis and members of the Ku Klux Klan shared their messages primarily with each other Saturday. The racialists were protesting outside the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama and spent their time shouting about the Law Centerís Morris Dees, Jews, other non-Christians, blacks and anyone else who didnít meet with their approval. "These filth up here want us to race mix," Robert Crockett told demonstrators while pointing up at the SPLC building. "We want to look around and see white children and white neighbors. We pledge allegiance to our white race." Richard Butler, who despite it all is still walking the planet, was among those present. Butler and his Aryan Nations came on hard times a couple years back when it lost its property and church to a woman who successfully sued the organization after she and her son were beaten by Aryan Nations security guards. Dees represented the woman.

The supremacist group was granted the right to spread its message of white power by the city of Montgomery, but there were no other permits issued. The public was denied access to the demonstration and there were no counter protests. The SPLC complex itself is tightly secured as the result of numerous attacks and plots to attack the organization's property and leadership over the years. Parts of the complex in downtown Montgomery are blast proof and security guards monitor the building 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

The racialists on hand were members of at least eight white supremacist groups including Aryan Nations, the Southern Patriots Party, the American White Knights and the Creativity Movement. The demonstration was organized by Billy Roperís new group, White Revolution (although the permit was issued to the oft used front name "Taxpayers Against Terrorism"). "We're all standing together because we're all white nationalists," said Billy Roper. Roper was recently booted out of the National Alliance (NA) because he wanted to be more inclusive of other white supremacists then did the NA. Roper had, for example, been the person within the NA who had been working to forge an alliance with the Matt Hale and the World Church of the Creator (WCOC). However, the dearly departed former NA Big Head William Pierce last April before dying switched gears on Roper and ridiculed the WCOC and other such groups. Said Pierce, "..the Alliance has no interest at all in the so-called 'movement.' We're not interested in uniting with the movement, and we're not interested in competing with the movement for members. If anything, we should be grateful that the movement is out there to soak up a lot of the freaks and weaklings who otherwise might find their way into the Alliance and make problems for us. In this regard, I was sorry to note Aryan Nations and the [World] Church of the Creator [the two other major neo-Nazi groups in America] have, for all practical purposes, died in the last few weeks. I hope one or two replacement groups spring up to draw away from us the defectives." At the same meeting at which Pierce spoke the man who was to succeed him, Erich Gliebe (who managed the white power music label Resistance Records), launched into a harangue about the "morons" and "hobbyists" who inhabit other groups and sometimes even manage to slip into the Alliance. "We have a great opportunity to really shape the future of our struggle and task at hand," Gliebe barked, "and to totally wipe out this make-believe world otherwise known as 'the movement.' Roperís outreach, along with his continuing ties to Skinheads and others who would never be allowed into the elitist National Alliance, had thus alienated him from Pierce other NA staff. To them, Roper was ignoring a basic tenet of Pierceís ó that the Alliance is a vanguard party, an elite group that will lead the "lemmings" of white America to ultimate victory. Roper lost out in the post Pierce power struggle and consequently went his own way forming White Revolution. (By the way, Gliebe and Co. figured out in the fall of 2002 that it had made a big mistake and began frantically trying to soothe relations with all those "morons" it had earlier dismissed).

White Revolution says of itself, "What makes us different: -Rather than being just another pro-White membership organization, White Revolution is designed to serve as an umbrella coalition of racial activists from every pro-White organization, as well as independent and unaffiliated patriots of our Western civilization from across the country and around the world."
