Nazi reaction from the GLobe
09 May 2005
Billy Roper states the protest was a success
From page two of a Boston Globe article...

"After leaving the demonstration, Billy Roper, chairman of White Revolution, called the protest ''a lot of fun" and said it successfully helped spread his organization's message. ''We really feel that the cause of 9-11 was America's support of the terrorist state of Israel," Roper said. He praised the police for protecting his members. ''I'm very much a fan of the Boston Police Department after seeing the way they did things," Roper said."

Considering that the primary audience Roper is trying to reach are disaffected young racist white people who attracted to a sense of strength and purpose in fringe nazi groups like White Revolution, I would say yesterday's outing was complete failure. They had a rag tag group of about a dozen people with goofy signs, and were forced to hide behind flanks of riot cops and be escourted around like children. Even most of their rival WP groups would not be cowardly as to arrange an escourt like that. Yesterday was actually a very pathetic public display, and I can't imagine they are going to be pulling in any new local recruits from this effort.

yeah, he lies, its funny check out his shitty website now that it's barely up a again (cheers to tha hax0rs who did that). He's basically just trying to put a positive spin on it.

Did you expect him to say "we got your asses kicked,we lost"?

I don't see how this could be called a success or failure. If by success, they mean they managed to waste alot of tax money (that you pay no matter who or what you are) to do nothing but attract the attention of people who are already dedicated to one side of the other, then yes, mission accomplished.
There is no win or loose here. It's just a bunch of angry people being intolerant of each other and not excepting that there will never be total racial segregation or racial equality. Am I condeming this? No. You can do what you want with your life. I'm just calling it as I see it. A perpetual stalemate.

Look, Roper knew from the getgo that he couldn't get more than a dozen to turn out. But that the counter-response would bring hundreds out to protest, and insure major corporate media coverage of their presence. His definition of victory was a few news blips - to assert that the fascist movement still has a heartbeat in the US. A fascist version of guerilla theater.
