Tennessee Cities Focus of Anti-Racist Demonstrations

Abayomi Azikiwe, Global Research, April 9, 2013


In Dickson, the so-called American Renaissance group held its annual conference. The state of Tennessee denied anti-racists several permit applications to hold mass demonstrations outside the event.

Demonstrations took place at any rate and denounced the messages put forward by the racists. {snip}

This was the second straight year that American Renaissance has gathered at the park in Dickson. {snip}

According to Julia Casteel of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), β€œIt is clear that the state stands solidly on the side of white supremacy. They granted a permit for a known white supremacist terrorist organization, AmRen, to hold their conference and they have repeatedly denied all of our permit requests to protest racist attacks on our park.” (fightbacknews.org, April 4)


Inside the U.S., racist organizations function openly and are granted permits to hold rallies and conferences. When anti-racist demonstrations are held more police attention is focused on suppressing such activity through bureaucratic methods and brute force.

    “They granted a permit for a known white supremacist terrorist organization, AmRen”

    So this is a White supremacist terrorist organization?

    Well smack me silly, I had no idea. Who heads up the terrorist wing anyway? Does Jared moonlight as a suicide bomber?

    This mans(?) name is Abayomi Azikiwe and it appears he mostly just writes about “racism”. I guess you don’t have to fact check when you are saving the world from evil racists.

    • “Terrorist” is actionable. Then again I doubt I’d want to give a clod that goes by “Abayomi Azikiwe” the credibility by suing him. I’d give him $250 and ask him to buy an extra vowel from Vanna.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Maybe he should also rent an N’ to see whether he likes it.

      Give it twenty years. Failing to embrace diversity, open borders, and affirmative action will be actually be considered terrorism under the law.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      “Who heads up the terrorist wing anyway?”

      As the only message board regular who is known to actually be on the Terrorist Watch List, I suppose that might be me.

      Since the weather has been too cold and windy here for any outdoor “terrorist” activity, like flying my daughter’s radio-controlled pterosaur (is that “terrorosaur”?) with her, I have spent the last few days in my basement, custom-building compartmented wooden toolboxes in order to reduce my diabolical lack of workshop organization to a merely sinister degree of clutter.

      “Terrorist”? Who makes up this stuff?

      • StillModerated

        I’m aiming for hoodies, ties, and white bandanas.

        • Michael_C_Scott

          You’re probably right. Matching a balaclava to a suit other than plain black would be difficult, and matching it to a shirt or necktie would simply look ridiculous.

      • Nathanwartooth

        “radio-controlled pterosaur (is that “terrorosaur”?)”

        This made me laugh pretty hard.

        New headline. “Senior terrorist member of AmRen builds “terrorsaur” to spread fear in dinosaur form to unsuspecting non Whites”.

        • bigone4u

          Don’t you know, comrade, that radio-controlled pterosaur is the code word used by racists for drones armed with nukes? These racist terrorists at Amren are very clever. Forward!

    • That’s what you get when you allow the “Pan-African Newswire Editor” to write a story.

  • brengunn

    They granted a permit for a known white supremacist terrorist organization, AmRen

    How do you even deal with people who talk such nonsense? I’m no tea party supporter, but they accuse the tea partiers of being irrational while at the same time making ludicrous statements as that.

    • bigone4u

      How do you deal with them, you ask. Ignore them (unless they turn violent). Especially when they are as disconnected from reality as the SDS group.

      • Liberalsuck

        If I talked to once face to face, I’d say, ‘OK, let’s have a discussion. You don’t scream at me or cuss at me or get physical with me or interrupt me, I will give you the same respect. You touch me, I press charges. The first time you interrupt me or cuss at me or scream at me, this conversazione is through.”

  • Katherine McChesney

    Abayomi Azikiwe. WHAT kind of name is THAT?

    • Michael_C_Scott

      I think it must be the Latin for one of Madonna’s pets, but this is mispelled; in Latin taxonomy the genus name is capitalized but not the species: Abayomi azikiwe would be correct.

    • bigone4u

      Look him up on Google. He’s very prominent in the Neo-Black movement. Good to know something about the enemy. From my experience and wikipedia I would say he’s Nigerian.


      • texasoysterman

        Hmmm. Not much bias in that wiki article.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Neo-black? This term is oxymoronic, and a thought-terminating cliche.

  • So CAL Snowman

    A terrorist organization are we? I got a good chuckle out of that one. I did not realize that it was AmRen supporters camping out in front of Wall Street, stealing, raping, and murdering. Ayatollah Snowman has a nice ring to it, no?

    • Michael_C_Scott

      The million-dollar question is after the left’s hyperbole addicts have beaten the term “terrorist” so completely to death that it no longer has any meaning, which word will become their new obsession? Several years ago it was “disenfranchisement”, if I remember correctly.

      • Non Humans

        This nonhuman applies the term liberally because whites who are awake are “Terrifying” to him. Essentially, he understands that the whines of slabery and other nonsense used against libtarded whites are null against those of us immune to the bs, brainwash, and msm lies.

    • Liberalsuck

      That’s a tactic of the Cultural Marxists. They always accuse their enemies of being guilty of the very things they’re guilty of themselves.

  • guest

    Where are these “anti-racist” protesters when the other race groups like La Raza and the NAACP form their own meetings and conferences? The moment AmRen announces their conference, these anti-racist clowns are so quick to organize their pathetic little protests. Yet we never hear a peep out of them about the non-white race group organizations.

  • Dick Swett

    Even if I tried with all my might, I’d be hard pressed to write a more one-sided, biased article.

  • Katherine McChesney
    • Non Humans

      That reporter will surely be fired, and his career now ruined…All for saying nothing more than the truth.

  • Bill

    Typical journalism from the left. Emotional, one sided, without fact, using perjorative words and accusations, and accusing the State of racism because their permits were denied (probably due to repeated civil and violent offenses when THEY meet and “protest”). Gee. If they were denied permits and took ground to protest anyway, why didn’t the racist State then demand their arrest and removal? Guess they weren’t racist at all, just using common sense? And by the way, I get sick and tired of “others” constantly lecturing we Whites as to freedom, rights, laws and such. WE formed all those things. Look at any non-white country. Do you find freedom? Rights? Obedience to laws? Nope.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    Sadly, I can answer one of your three questions: “Why is it here?”

    Because Ted Kennedy thought it was a good idea back in 1965 (he was drunk that decade).

  • wattylersrevolt

    Just a reminder:LaRaza=The Race=has an office in the Kenyan Foriegners White House. Nuff said….Lovely Colleen Creamer..what do you think about this?

      They must have made Obongo an honorary vato.

  • Bobby

    The first step to getting some enlightenment on the illegal immigration issue is this–the realization that millions of European-Americans are BUTT DUMB PEOPLE, that neither care for their friends, or families, while believing they are number 1. Is this an unfair rant? Nope, just something I have perceived, over and over again. People that have essentially no respect for themselves, can’t even begin to respect and care for the nation that so many other European-Americans sacrificed so much for, sometimes their very lives. They watch it being trashed and disrespected by arrogant illegal foreign nationals on a daily basis, while discussing the reasons that those foreign nationals might have for doing so, instead of threatening their so called representatives with their jobs, if they continue to allow what they have been allowing. When you don’t get represented, you need to do something about it, and this is where millions of American citizens come up short. PEACE.

    “Inside the U.S., racist organizations function openly and are granted permits to hold rallies and conferences. When anti-racist demonstrations are held more police attention is focused on suppressing such activity through bureaucratic methods and brute force.”

    Another foreigner commenting on the US when he knows nothing about it. When “anti-racist” demos are held, there is more police attention because the “anti-racists” are far more likely to get violent and the police have to be there to stop any violence from occuring, not because they are trying to “suppress” anything.

    A pity this crazily false account of the speakers in the original article should appear on a website that sometimes carries useful information against the globalization steamroller.

    Say no more!

    But it’s good to know that we’ve been upgraded from white supremacists to terrorists. Which reminds me, it’s time to renew my concealed carry permit.

  • Snowhitey

    I thought he was probably African judging from his name but I really did expect to see a white guy in the photo.


  • I don’t like them trying to attach the supremacist label to us. We are simply a race that is trying to deal with current day issues(it’s a shame some other races don’t try it). If any of these people use this term near you. Please consider calling them on it.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    The problem there is that “those responsible” typically own nothing more valuable than a used crack pipe.

    “According to Julia Casteel of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), β€œIt is clear that the state stands solidly on the side of white supremacy. They granted a permit for a known white supremacist terrorist organization, AmRen, to hold their conference”

    That is hysterical, SDS is a 60’s era leftist organization that morphed into the weathermen, a domestic terrorist group that once bombed the pentagon.

  • Jefferson

    According to left wingers Jared Taylor is a terrorist, but Nidal Hassan is not a terrorist at all. He is just a disgruntled employee.

    Good to see that the left has their priorities straight.

  • newscomments70

    I admire the patience and self-control of the AMREN attendees. If I were there, I don’t think I could control my extreme rage. I look at that worthless, disgusting, subhuman, hippie and I can only see red. I don’t want to rant endlessly. I’m sure most of you know what I’m thinking. Listening to subhuman filth like this only makse me want to fight harder.

  • bigone4u

    Careful about lawsuits. Some of the views expressed here (such as of Treyvon Martin) theoretically could be actionable. In truth, once the lawyers have their $200,000 in fees to file or defend a lawsuit, defamation and libel are hard to prove. Opinion is protected speech. Even a mistatement of fact is protected unless motivated by provable malice.

  • bigone4u

    The Amren editor snipped out the most hilariously false and ignorant part of old Abay’s masterpiece of truth:

    “The list of speakers at the conference included Klan members, neo-Nazis, holocaust deniers, anti-immigrant activists and other assorted fascists and racists.”

    Damn! Amren forgot to invite Hitler’s ghost!!!!

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    “It is clear that the state stands solidly on the side of white supremacy.”

    Yep, America sure is a white supremacist state. What with affirmative action, Section 8, food stamps, welfare, cushy government make-work jobs, etc all set aside for whites, it’s quite clear. And that’s not even to mention the untold millions of white illegals streaming across the border each year completely unimpeded by the government.

    Wait a minute…

    • Michael_C_Scott

      You forgot the railway baggage porter we have in the Oval Office and his flunkie shoe-shine boy who’s allowed to play at being “Attorney General”.

    What a baldfaced string of propagandist lies!

    Sure, Akimaziwa Ookabazooka or whatever the hell your name is.

    Irony is these bastards are pushing us to show them just how “evil” we are. Hope I’m alive to see it happen. If I can walk I’ll be there on the front lines.

    Valhalla awaits. Better to live like a lion for one day than a hundred years as a worm.

  • 5n4k33y35

    I probably ought to have attended the conference. In retrospect, I could have avoided a lot of the nonsense I was subjected to if I had attended.

  • ViktorNN

    I made the mistake of reading the original linked article. Jeez, talk about poorly written. The article reads like a 6th grader’s book report full of copy and pasting from Wikipedia.

  • Liberalsuck

    Awwwwwwwww! The same people who shout us down, harass us, destroy our careers are now whining about how their “rights to free speech” were taken away? Poor wittle babies.

  • time machine

    This idiot and all the rest always miss the main question. Where would they be had African slavery never occurred? The fact remains Africans were never meant to be in the western hemisphere and not a single African ever came over on his own but only came after being sold by his tribal chiefs and shipped over as owned property since slavery was legal in Africa and still is. White slavery was still in existence 500 yrs ago also.

    Hopefully scientists one day will complete that time travel machine so African slavery can be reversed as if it never occurred. Lets take a vote and see how many Africans in America or the west will agree to have Obama put up government money to build a time travel machine in order to erase every vestige of slavery in the west. Put your money where your mouth is since if slavery can be erased the race problem will have been solved once and for all and there will have not a single African black in the western hemisphere since Columbus came October 9th 1492.

    We agree. Slavery was a terrible mistake and we need to get busy trying to reverse time to erase it so all these Africans who should not ever be in the western hemisphere whatsoever, can be happy and never have left Africa to be in the white man European western civilization. A time machine must be used very carefully and only certain events erased or changed and the first will be to reverse African slavery so it would have never happened in the new western world. We know a time machine is inevitable anyway and slavery erased somewhere in the future. There is no other cure for the astronomical problems of the 3 races than to be separated again permanently as it was meant to be.

    • Lets take a vote and see how many Africans in America or the west will agree to have Obama put up government money to build a time travel machine in order to erase every vestige of slavery in the west.

      If such a machine existed, an NAACP-LDF lawyer would do his best to destroy it. Some people are making a nice living off the fact that slavery once existed.

  • If you are not promoting racial hatred why did many member’s seig heil? If you are non violent why did Heimbach challenge protesters to a fight?

  • plaintruthforidiots

    “denounced the messages put forward by the racists”

    The main one of which was “White people have the right to have their own countries”.
    Or, to put it another way, NOBODY has the right to FORCE you to live with anybody you don’t want to. Unless those people are claiming to OWN you, and are therefore slave owners, and therefore breaking the law.

    The right to NOT associate with people is the most important right of all, and it isn’t ‘granted’ by any government, only taken away by tyrants.

  • Michael_C_Scott

    “Inside the US, racist organizations function openly and are granted permits to hold rallies and conferences.”

    The implication here by this non-citizen is that our laws need to be changed to accomodate Azkikiwe’s towering insecurity and inferiority complexes. The United States is the oldest democratic republic in the world, and when we need constitutional advice from an African, we will ask him for it.

    • saxonsun

      Absolutely horrific if that happened–no sane person would support such tactics. Having said that, there’s always some crazies in a viable group.

      • Heather Cherish

        Jared Taylor, Matthew Heimbach and several others did exactly that. It concerns me to invite hot heads that are prone to racist and hateful activities into
        our quiet, peaceful community oriented town.

      • Heather Cherish

        I had to verify from video and photos Heimbach and Scott Terry (spelling?) did exactly the above. It makes the legitimacy of your cause clouded when you have members at your events provoking peaceful protesters.

      • This page is either glitchy or my post keep getting deleted. Heimbach asked protesters to fight him and Scott Terry stood by him seig hiled with many others. I fear the thinking of some in your group. It surprises me that we can’t be rational without resorting to hateful actions.
