Gun Activists Planning Spokane Armed Protest on March 6

03.04.2015

On Friday, March 6, gun activists, militia members, Tea Partiers, Threepers and other far-right activists plan to hold an armed rally in Spokane.  The rally is scheduled for 11am to 2pm, at the Tom Foley Federal Courthouse (920 W. Riverside Ave) in downtown Spokane.

Organized to show support for an activist who was recently arrested when he brought his firearm onto federal property, the event is part of dangerous intensification of conflict with authorities over guns. Adding to the volatility of the rally is the announcement that the leader of a rival faction declared his intention to attend the event.

CPAC’s Recurring White Nationalism Problem

02.25.2015

As the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) gets set to kick off tomorrow just outside of Washington DC, the event is already mired in yet another controversy over white nationalism.

ProEnglish, the white nationalist-led English-only outfit that created serious headaches for the conference in the past, is once again being allowed to be an official exhibitor at CPAC 2015 when the doors open tomorrow. On top of that, another white nationalist outfit has come to town to try and influence the CPAC conversation.

Inside the South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention

02.05.2015

The fourth annual South Carolina Tea Party Coalition Convention warred on the Constitution, and resurrected the patently false notions that President Obama is not a natural born American. Held at the Springmaid Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach on January 17-19, the event also displayed an abundant supply of Christian nationalism, racism, anti-immigrant bigotry and Islamophobia. It also drew more than its fair share of Republican politicians. More than a gateway to the 2016 presidential primaries, however, the convention served as a preview of Tea Party activism of the future—warts and all.
