White Nationalist Group to Protest ‘Machete’ Movie With Machetes This Weekend

Lauren Smiley, San Francisco Weekly, August 31 2010

A group of white nationalists will protest the new Robert Rodriguez movie Machete–which depicts a Mexican renegade attempting to assassinate an anti-immigrant senator played by Robert DeNiro–at Bay Area cinemas this week. {snip}

Frequent readers of this site may recall the Bay Area National Anarchists–BANA for short–the white nationalist group that showed up at the May Day immigration reform rally at Civic Center Plaza to instead show support of the Arizona “papers please” SB 1070 immigration law. BANA founder Andrew Yeoman and two other members were allegedly beaten while leaving the rally by black bloc anarchists, two of whom are now charged with misdemeanor assault.

BANA is also known for showing up to protest the Folsom Street Fair. But they will be doing a warmup act from Friday to Sunday at movie theaters showing the slasher film in the city, North Bay and East Bay, Yeoman says, “along with like-minded individuals and grassroots organizations nationwide.” He even started a Facebook page to promote the protest.


In a press release, Yeoman writes the people of Arizona “valiantly stood up for Western Culture and state sovereignty vis-a-vis a recent law that prescribed penalties for those who aid in the invasion of our country.”



In Hollywood’s latest anti-White film, the hero is a blood-thirsty illegal alien of Latino ethnicity who slaughters white people with a myriad of weapons. White people are presented as the “bad guys.” Even the trailer of the film {snip} begins with the militant Latino telling the viewers that he has a “special message” for the people of Arizona, who valiantly stood up for Western Culture and state sovereignty vis-à-vis a recent law that prescribed penalties for those who aid in the invasion of our country.

Machete was able to be produced in part by tax incentives and access to locations that were provided by the Texas Film Commission–a division of Gov. Rick Perry’s office.

Andrew Yeoman, the founder and spokesman of BANA, said, “The members of my organization plan to protest outside theaters that are showing this film. We are bringing our own machetes; it is time our people stand up and say, ‘Enough is enough! No more Hollywood filth!'”

The protesters will be armed with flyers as well.
