Kundgebungen und rechte Demos am 1. Mai

Zum «Tag der Arbeit» am 1. Mai werden in diesem Jahr neben zahlreichen Kundgebungen der Gewerkschaften auch wieder Demonstrationen und Krawalle erwartet. In Berlin, seit 1987 Schauplatz gewalttätiger 1. Mai-Kundgebungen, hofft die Polizei auf deutlich weniger Krawalle als in den Vorjahren. In einigen Städten hat die rechte Szene Aufmärsche angemeldet. Leipzig fürchtet bei einer Neonazi-Demonstration mit erwarteten 1000 Teilnehmern Auseinandersetzungen zwischen Linken und Rechten.

Panzerfaust collapses amid Aryan purity debate
Questions about the “Aryan” blood of Anthony Pierpont, proprietor of the hate rock distributor Panzerfaust Records, have raged for years in the bizarre world of white supremacy. Pierpont has repeatedly sworn he’s white. But detractors have pointed to his suspiciously dark skin as evidence that Pierpont is actually a representative of “the mongrel hordes.” Now, the controversy seems to have scuttled Panzerfaust, which had risen recently to become one of America’s two most important racist labels. (…) By last summer, Panzerfaust was posting its highest sales ever, and that fall Pierpont and his partner — Skinhead Bryant Cecchini, alias Byron Calvert — were in the headlines thanks to “Project Schoolyard,” a nationwide campaign to distribute free Panzerfaust sampler CDs to 100,000 middle and high school students.

SPLCenter.org: The Gaede Bunch

Neo-Nazi stage mom April Gaede and her singing twins are poised for stardom, of a sort
April Gaede wears a tweed suit the color of wheat, her light brown mullet neatly curled. Her twin daughters, Lynx and Lamb, are clad in matching powder-blue dresses with fuzzy collars, their blond hair in braids, impossibly cute and well aware of it. They stand and sing to a rapt crowd in shrill voices. If it weren’t for the electric guitars on the stage behind them, the flag with the “life rune” symbol on it, and the white-power lyrics, they could be singing hymns in church. Instead, they are entertaining a room full of neo-Nazis.
“Strike force! White survival. Strike force! Yeah,” they sing, punctuating each “Strike force!” with miniature sieg heils. Some of the men in the audience return the salute, and when the girls finish, thunderous applause fills the room.
Since joining the neo-Nazi National Alliance in 2001, Gaede and her girls have become prominent ambassadors of hate, thanks in no small part to Gaede’s dogged determination to turn her 12-year-olds into racist pop stars.
Gaede herself grew up on goat’s milk and Third Reich footage in the foothills of Fresno (the family now lives in Bakersfield), the daughter of a rancher who branded horses with swastikas. (…) Since joining the Alliance, Gaede has occupied herself posting advice on Internet forums under the screen name Odin’s Shieldmaiden and writing about parenting, Yule, and mad cow disease for the group’s National Vanguard magazine.

SPLCenter.org: The Year in Hate

Key organizations on the radical right have lost their charismatic leaders. But the racist movement is still very much alive
Some of the best known hate groups in America have lost their leaders and fallen on hard times recently. But the radical right as a whole remained remarkably steady last year, fueled by street-level activism welling up from below. (…) The country’s leading neo-Nazi groups were in bad shape. The most important, the National Alliance, continued a spiraling descent that began with the 2002 death of its founder. The Aryan Nations, already deprived of its compound, saw its own founder die last September. And the Creativity Movement, once known as the World Church of the Creator (WCOTC), was struggling to survive after its leader was convicted last spring of soliciting the murder of a federal judge. (…) At the same time, white power music labels suffered a body blow. Resistance Records, owned by the National Alliance and once the leading such distributor in the Western hemisphere, provoked complaints by failing to fulfill orders and may well be losing money. Its aggressive young competitor, Panzerfaust Records, collapsed after other neo-Nazis accused its olive-skinned founder of being of Mexican descent.

Separatist on Bozeman ballot – billingsgazette.com

A member of a white separatist group who believes public schools are ignoring whites and promoting homosexuality is stirring up the Bozeman school board election. Kevin McGuire, 23, shocked many this spring when he gathered enough signatures to run for one of three open spots on the seven-member board.
The California native had just moved to the community last fall and was vilified by some after the group he belongs to, the National Alliance, claimed responsibility for racist literature distributed in town. The group also showed up to oppose a Martin Luther King Jr. rally that drew more than 1,000 people. (…) McGuire, who prefers to be known as a European-American activist rather than a neo-Nazi and white supremacist, shrugs off the criticism as ignorance and said he’s committed to reforming Bozeman schools.
He says white students are ignored in a system that promotes other cultures and puts George Washington and other founding fathers on the back burner. Public schools also teach and promote homosexuality and strip parents of control over their children, he said. “White children are often installed with guilt and a feeling of being ashamed because of the way that whites have dealt with minorities in the past, such as black slavery and the killing of Indians,” McGuire said in a telephone interview. “Past discrimination should not result in present-day reverse discrimination against white kids.”
The National Alliance Web site calls for the preservation of the white race and lists among its primary goals a “white living space” and an “Aryan society.” Membership has dropped severely since the 2002 death of leader William Pierce, and some human rights groups say the organization is falling apart.
