Dear Gov. Jeb Bush, Dr. Ben Carson, Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Rand Paul, Gov. Rick Perry, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Rick Santorum, and Gov. Scott Walker:

We understand that you are scheduled to speak at this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, an event which is being partially sponsored by ProEnglish, a group led by white nationalist Bob Vandervoort. We urge you to decline to speak at CPAC unless it cuts ties with ProEnglish and Vandervoort.

ProEnglish has sponsored CPAC for the past several years, despite Vandervoort’s well documented ties to the white nationalist movement. As the Institute for Research & Education on Human Rights has reported, Vandervoort is the former leader of Chicagoland Friends of American Renaissance, a group dedicated to supporting the ideals of the infamous white nationalist publication American Renaissance.  One member of the group described its mission as encouraging “white survival and maintaining white majorities.”

Vandervoort’s own writings reflect these views. He has expressed concern about the need to “halt the cultural and racial dispossession of the West’s historic people” and expounded on “racial differences” in “intelligence and temperament.” He has wondered how “race realists and pro-Western Civ nationalists” like himself can counter historical comparisons to the Holocaust and slavery.

CPAC has a troubling history of welcoming white nationalists. In 2012, the conference hosted a panel on race featuring Vandervoort and fellow white nationalist writer Peter Brimelow. And ProEnglish has continued to be allowed to sponsor the event even after civil rights groups have raised concerns.

Clearly, Robert Vandervoort and his group should have no place as a financial sponsor of the nation’s largest convention of conservatives. We urge you to distance yourself from Vandervoort’s views and refuse to speak at CPAC unless ProEnglish’s sponsorship is withdrawn.

Sincerely,

Michael Keegan, President
People For the American Way

    Yeah, let the REAL conservatives associate with AmRen, the way I see it. 🙂 That list is just about nothing but RINOs.

    • Jason Lewis

      It’ll have to get worse for politicians to openly asscociate with AmRen.

      • ghettovalley

        It could certainly happen. Given the strained and polarized racial relations in our country, it’s really only a matter of time before explicitly and openly pro-white politicians emerge within America. As our share of the population shrinks, the more racially aware your average white person will become. They will begin to think critically about the future when life in America for your average white person is similar to life in South Africa for the average Boer.

        • Jason Lewis

          The left openly expresses hatred with whites. I seriously don’t get it. White leftist are the majority of their voting base and they applaud it.

          • ghettovalley

            They see themselves as somehow superior and above the rest of us. The smug condescension that they express towards conservative white males especially is appalling. I’ve even seem some supposedly white liberals online in various comments sections saying how great the world will be when whites are gone. What kind of a sick white person would believe a thing like that? If these stupid white progressives think that the world would be so much better off without white people, then I have a great suggestion for them, go drink a bottle of bleach.

  • What? As you can see on the right sidebar of this page, Brimelow-Spencer-Taylor are holding a conference this weekend at the same time as CPAC and in the same area, mainly as a retort to explain the uselessness and irrelevance of both CPAC and the lamestream conservative doctrine it’s pushing, and also for the fact that CPAC is becoming more and more the object of the Republican oriented donor class, and they’re pushing lamestream conservatives out the door to replace them with donor class puppets.

    • Oil Can Harry

      And of course People For the American Way (Norman Lear’s sock puppets) and the other p.c. orgs have never demanded that “mainstream” civil rights groups cut ties with black nationalists like Louis Farrakhan.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    “Civil Rights” groups, what a sham. I can understand why they may feel offended at a Pro-English representative speaking at CPAC, being that they speak “Ebonics” and can’t pronounce the word “ask” without saying “ax.”

    If the GOP field is really this dumb, they deserve to lose the Presidency in 2016 if they listen to this rag-tag collection of anti-white Afro-bigots.

    • Realist

      “If the GOP field is really this dumb, they deserve to lose the Presidency in 2016 if they listen to this rag-tag collection of anti-white Afro-bigots.”

      And lose they will, for so many reasons.

  • Alucard_the_last

    This site is hardly racist. Why don’t the dems distance themselves from the Nation of Islam and Jeromia Wright.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      Don’t forget to throw in LaRaza, the NAACP, the National Urban League… all racist organizations, unabashedly so.. and all with a pro-Democratic Party agenda.

    • TruthBeTold

      The only acceptable definition of racism is anything blacks and other minorities don’t like.

      • That reminds me of a joke.

        Q: What does “racist” mean?

        A: Someone who is winning an argument with a liberal.

        • phillyguy

          sad but true.

      • badbox27

        There’s no doubt about it. That’s exactly what the word means to them.

    • IBWHITE

      The dems welcome self proclaimed communists into their fold and act like it’s no big deal.

    • Zimriel

      I don’t even like the word “racist”. Too vague. And too much “Ism”.

      This site is pro-white; nothing more or less.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    Divide and conquer: That’s what the communists do, and its amazing how many stupid and gutless RINOs and “Establishment” types will fall for this ploy…

  • Truthseeker

    One member of the group described its mission as encouraging “white survival and maintaining white majorities.”

    How disgusting! White people don’t want their race to be destroyed and even want to maintain sovereignty in the countries their ancestors built? That’s just beyond the pale right there.

  • WR_the_realist

    One member of the group described its mission as encouraging “white survival and maintaining white majorities.”

    Oh dear, we mustn’t have that — not white majorities. Not even white survival.

    The left’s desire for genocide of the white race is quite open now.

    A little while back Hispanics celebrated their new status as the plurality (soon to be majority) in California. This was held to be a good and fine thing by the left, it’s only bad if whites want to be the majority.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      Last year Ann Coulter spoke at CPAC, and dared to utter that at MSNBC they’re celebrating the “browning of America”, and calling you a “racist” if you don’t.

      • Alden

        Has she ever uttered a word against affirmative action? She’s anti liberal but is she pro White.
        Soros and gambling czar Adelson have already bought the GOP nomination for Jeb Bush

    • Frank_DeScushin

      It’s pretty ironic for civil rights groups to criticize whites for complaining about becoming a minority when the primary focus of these civil rights groups is to whine and complain about how much it stinks to be a minority in America.

      The irony is probably lost on those fellows. Then again, they might not be intelligent enough to see the irony.

    • Ella

      Middle Class whites should have their final exodus out of CA and walk their monies to another State. Money talks.

  • dd121

    Unfortunately Republicans have chosen to be useless to their people. When they start losing every election to Democrats, spearheaded by their browns illegally allowed into our country and supported by republicans, I won’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    • I’m already all cried out.

      • Irish

        I was a teenager when Ronald Reagan’s 86 amnesty went through. It’s the first time I remember being violently opposed to nearly anything a man I was very proud (and still am) was our President. That amnesty was a fraction of the kind of numbers being discussed today. And the Democratic congress flat lied about the enforcement part of the law..Reagan called it one of his biggest regrets..I’m just about cried out too..Demoralized in the extreme.

        • dd121

          The dems lied to Reagan and unfortunately he bought it.

          • John Smith

            Just like the FOPA of 1986 and the MG ban.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      Texas may fall out of the Republican orbit by 2024 or 2028…. Georgia isn’t far behind… North Carolina and Virginia are already tottering, ready go over by 2016. Mississippi will tenaciously hang on to the GOP column despite being nearly 40% black.

      • Irish

        Yeah Vermont is lily White and has a Socialist, Jewish Senator, and Mississippi is the most conservative state in the Union with the highest percentage of Blacks..As the old saying goes-“Familiarity breeds contempt”

        • gemjunior

          Yes, Vermont is about to make another stupid move by caving into the gun-grabbers. It’s a beautiful lilyWhite state but not for long, as soon as they can it will be flooded with raggedy Somalis wrecking the places and turning old wood frame churches into mosques. It sounds almost insane, but we all know it’s possible.

      • Zimriel

        Texas has a slight advantage in that it always had a pro-Texan “Tejano” Hispanic population. I lived there for a long time and I saw it. They were never for “Aztlan”; their ancestors helped fight it.

        New Mexico is similar.

        Increased immigration from the Maya tribes will ruin this, of course; these people who speak the “Apocalypto” languages never had anything to do with Texan culture.

        • John Smith

          They’re mainly criollos, not mestizos – the real white Hispanics.

          • Irish

            While there is a kernel of truth to what you say, your painting with way to broad a brush..The Republican Party in Texas steadfastly avoids painting Tex-Mexicans as as anything other than Texans. And indeed I have met many Tejanos whose lineage preceeds Statehood , and are very proud of that fact. That said the State has been inundated over the last 30-40 years…All the serious Dem strategists predicted Greg Abbot would probably beat Wendy Davis. The really smart ones (Nate Silver comes to mind) predicted 4-5-6 point spread given it’s a off year election, but look out in 4 years!..Well abottt blew her out by 20 .

          • John Smith

            I was making a point of Tejanos, not just any old Mexican who’s wandered over the border since TX independence. Tejanos were actually fairly few in numbers in the territory and the Anglo settlers were soon a large majority, IIRC, post Mexican independence from Spain and its brief colonial era after 1821 to 1836. It’s well known that TX is majority Hispanic possibly even now, or within the next couple years at most, based on estimates (counting the illegals flooding in).

        • LHathaway

          “Increased immigration from the Maya tribes will ruin this”

          I believe many of the true native types in Latin America have no love for Mexico – or their home country. It would be like asking blacks to rally around the Confederate flag. Most of the immigrants are mexican-mexican but many of them are more the native tribe type.

        • Spaniard in LA

          Aren’t Tejanos different from other Hispanics? I’ve always heard that.

      • Alden

        When Texas goes Hispanic democrat then all the big electoral college states will be solidly democrat. Soros groups like move on and whatever ACORN calls itself now will take care of Ohio and Pennsylvania.

  • Alex Dihes

  • TruthBeTold

    “One member of the group described its mission as encouraging “white survival and maintaining white majorities.”

    And the problem with this opinion is…?

  • Malcontent2

    FYI: Marxist Frank Sharry of America’s Voice (a rabid pro-illegal alien / open borders advocate) and signatory of the letter was one of the privileged invited to meet with Obama behind closed doors on February 25th 2015 to discuss Comprehensive Capitulation (Surrender our Republic to Invaders).

    Sharry also met with Obama in 2013 to discuss Comprehensive Capitulation.

    It’s no secret that Sharry has quite a fondness for Mexican/Latino invaders.

    • phillyguy

      put him in a California state prison for one month and see if he changes his mind.

      • Malcontent2

        Sharry is a such a self-loathing (w)hite man that any abuse
        from non Whites is a form of redemption for him. Sharry blames all the ills of the world on the White race.

      • LexiconD1

        Or East Los Angeles.

        • Alden

          East LA is actually pretty nice. It s mostly 3rd and 4th generation White looking Mex -Americans. That doesn’t prevent the laraza politicians from presenting it as a stronghold of poverty stricken Indio illegals.

          The 4’10 Indians live elsewhere.

          • LexiconD1

            I’m sure it ‘looks nice’ ONLY to a Mexican. It’s a craphole no white person would ever want to be stuck in. The undertow is all around you.

  • MekongDelta69

    “ProEnglish” = ‘Bad

    “ProAnythingElse” = ‘Good

    Tell me again, what planet we’re on…

      People for the American Way? They seem to have a warped version of what the American Way is about.

  • superlloyd

    The Republicans have lost their soul. It’s pitiful that many of the addressees are RINOs bent on destroying the country with unfettered hordes of third world benefits’ seekers amongst their many other sins,

    • WR_the_realist

      Most Republicans feel they’re doing their job so long as they get us into more wars and provide more tax cuts for rich people, no matter how big the deficit.

      Wanting to uphold the Bill of Rights and being against war makes you a dangerous lunatic, like Ron Paul.

      Wanting to enforce immigration law, or, God forbid, reduce legal immigration levels, makes you an evil racist.

    • Ella

      The Middle Class is only liked when we pay our taxes and fuel their cannons for selected wars.

      • WR_the_realist

        And the white working class is much appreciated for fighting those wars that do not benefit them in the slightest.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      When Ann Coulter is ex-communicated from the party, yes, the Gutless Old Party has lost its soul.

  • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

    Helpful advice to conservatives from people who loathe conservatives.

    • evilsandmich

      Obviously the smart move would be to do just the opposite of what your enemies suggest.

  • MekongDelta69

    The are multi-hundreds of black-only organizations.

    I could give you more links than you’ve ever seen in your life, but thankfully, I have a real life to live!

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    Well, if American Renaissance is now “infamous” that must mean it’s having an impact. Good news!

  • We should only trust a politician if they are hated by the media. The media are NOT on the side of White people. Too often we have let our enemies decide who we should support.

  • NoMosqueHere

    PFTAW has a simple philosophy: Whites bad; blacks and muslims good.

    • Pat Kittle

      Actually, “Whites bad; blacks and muslims good; Jews best”

      (After all, it is primarily another part of the Jewish lobby — a quick search will verify that.)

      • Alden

        Their first and still main focus is the abolition of Christmas. Abolition of Christmas was one of the first things the Jews did after their conquest of Russia back in 1920 . Lenin actually made a decree that anyone who did not show up for work on December 25 be executed without trial, just dragged from his or home by the YKW Cheka patrols and shot

  • LHathaway

    So, it’s wrong to want to encourage ‘white survival’ or ‘maintain white majorities’. Shockingly wrong. Yet it’s A-OK for the Very Name of your organization to be ‘The color of change’ even as people of color are becoming a majority and are a majority of births in this nation.

  • Jason Lewis

    Ben Carson better distance himself from CPAC or he’ll be labeled racist.

  • James Hamilton

    “Civil rights groups” campaign against freedom of expression and freedom of association for people they disagree with.

  • WR_the_realist

    Ironically Barbara Jordan was against illegal immigration, one of the few things she was right about. People for the American Way is 100% in favor of illegal immigration. Who knew that supporting illegal immigration is the American way?

  • WR_the_realist

    We all know that the radical left just has conservatives’ best interests at heart when they provide this sort of advice.

    Just like how they warn the Republicans how much the Republican party will be hurt if the Republicans don’t support illegal immigration.

  • Pat Kittle

    AmRen, unlike many pro-white groups, rarely exposes the nasty Jewish supremacists behind most of these anti-white groups.

    In gratitude the Jewish supremacists attack AmRen just as viciously anyway.

    Jared is incredibly kind to these traitors.

    • John Smith

      Finn Norman Lear was behind “People for the American Way.”

      • Pat Kittle

        Wikipedia says Russian father, Ukrainian mother & “Jewish home and had a Bar Mitzvah ceremony.”

        • John Smith

          No, I don’t want my comment deleted – use “Finn” from here on out.

          • Pat Kittle

            Sorry, I didn’t realize you were referring to one of “those” Finns.

            FWIW, it seems fewer comments are disappearing lately.

          • Alden

            Lots of people use YKW

      • WR_the_realist

        True, and yes, there are many left wing Jews, but Jared Taylor has the good sense to see that not all Jews think the same way. He’s had many fine and sensible Jews attend and speak at his conferences. And I see many non-Jewish whites who also sign on to all sorts of crazy left wing and anti-white causes. The Pope is now advocating for illegal immigration into the United States. When they encounter such people WNs resolve the cognitive dissonance by relabeling those white people of Christian background as Jews.

        • John Smith

          Four of every five Jews support left-wing politics, so it’s not like they haven’t earned the suspicion they get.

        • newscomments70

          78% of Jews voted for Obama. It’s safe to say over 80% of the Jewish American population is left wing. Being left wing, they are either actively or passively anti-white. There are some conservative and race realist Jews, as well. I think highly of Micheal Savage and Matt Drudge, both Jewish. Savage openly admits: “90% of my people are left-wing psychopaths”. I believe it is more like 70-80%, but I won’t split hairs. Yes, there are some Jews on our side, but collectively, they are not.

    • Light from the East

      As far as I concerned, Jews themselves are divided into two groups: left or right. The left Jews enjoy the benefit of living in the Western countries meanwhile have a plan to make the West multicultural. The right Jews like Netanyahu calls for a mass immigration for Jews worldwide into Israel. The idea like this is still controversial even a Jew said it. Why not use this contradiction to further reach the final goal – reducing the influence of Jews in the West, sending them back to Israel, making them as our gambit to fight Islam in the middle east. A good chess move can achieve several purposes at the same time.

      • The right Jews like Netanyahu calls for a mass immigration for Jews worldwide into Israel.

        While simultaneously being lionized and supported by American pro-Israel writers and pundits who think Jewish Nationalism is something worth fighting and dying for, but dance around the subject of White Nationalism and slither away when they get flak for being the the “wrong kind of racist.” This isn’t a chess move, it’s losing hand in a rigged poker game.

        • Light from the East

          It looks like your don’t have a losing hand after all. By debunking the hypocrisy of those people, the public will know the despicable double standard those writers and pundits have. How to do it? Post their names one by one, on the net, and all forms of ad. Show their contradiction and real purpose, even neutral people will grow suspicion against them. If you have any better idea, try to fulfill it. If you choose to sit and do nothing, a winning hand won’t help you either.

  • John Smith

    Time for “re-education camp.”

  • John Smith

    No – that’s “racist” and someone will file suit against to open up the organization to minority members.

  • JohnEngelman

    People For the American Way has about as much clout with the Republican Party as Focus on the Family has with the Democratic Party .

  • Earl P. Holt III

    It’s NEVER a good idea to take advice from your mortal enemies. (A lot of those “White Nationalists” are the guys who didn’t vote in November of 2012…)

  • Realist

    “When leftists run out of logical arguments (which is very quickly), this is their secret weapon.”

    It’s only a weapon if whites are stupid enough to allow it.

  • Alden

    Conservatives are as much our enemy as Obama and Soros are. Why should we support them when they ignore our concerns and spend all their time bewailing abortion of browns and blacks and urging Church going as a way to civilize the blacks?

    • Light from the East

      Just as the Protestant Reformation to Christianity, the Conservatives need a reform. American Renaissance is the powerhouse of new era’s thinking. The problem is do we have the resources to enter the political field? What do you think?

  • Reynardine

    ‘One member of the group described its mission as encouraging “white survival and maintaining white majorities.”’

    Because, as everybody knows, white people should not be able to survive.
