Ten Members Of The National Socialist Movement Rally In Tyler, Texas; Offset By 100 Counter-Protestors And ARA Scum
While 50 National Socialist Movement cadre were rallying in Jefferson City, Missouri, ten members of the organization staged a rally in Tyler, Texas on November 8th, 2008.

The two-hour rally, timed to coincide with the Missouri rally, was intended to focus primarily on illegal immigration. But approximately 100 counter-protesters showed up to confront the NSM, closing Spring Avenue from Ferguson to East Erwin Streets. Many of the counter-protestors were Anti-Racist Action (ARA) anarchist scum, considered the sworn enemies of White activists. These cowards cover their faces with bandannas during rallies, although it's more for image rather than identity protection. [Ed. Note: Or perhaps they're trying to avoid asphyxiating anyone with their bad breath.]. Podblanc video embedded below:
And there's evidence that ARA expended considerable time and effort coordinating their planned opposition. They issued an initial call to action on Infoshop on October 30th. And they showed up in force, despite pleas from the local cops to stay away. Some came from as far away as Austin. But perhaps another reason so many antifa showed up was because there was a report of racist graffitti sprayed at Kilgore High School, just 20 miles east of Tyler, earlier in the week. Most likely this was done by misfits who use white nationalism as nothing more than protective cover for personal hooliganism, but you can see how that type of nonsense would make it more difficult for legitimate activists like the NSM to get their message across. [Ed. Note: I wonder if undercover anti-racists sprayed the graffitti on the school in order to discredit the NSM?]
Nevertheless, despite the presence of so many antifa, the rally proved to be peaceful. Police gave several verbal warnings to protesters who leaned too far into the police tape or who shouted obscenities, but there were no arrests.
Outfitted in black pants button up shirts and high laced boots, the NSM contingent stood on the back steps of the Smith County Courthouse shouting their message from a megaphone. “We fight for our race - we fight for our nation. We are not un-American; you are un-American. You are the problem,” Sgt. Jeffcoat, unit leader of the Southwest Texas NSM shouted.
Randy Oliver of Tyler who came to watch the rally said that he was disappointed that the NSM chose Tyler as a place for their rally. “I know it’s freedom of speech, but you can see that no one wants them to be here,” he said. “Maybe they will see that and not come back.” [Ed. Note: I wonder if Randy is just as disappointed in the illegals who come to take jobs and benefits from us.]
Analysis: The decision to hold two rallies on one day reflects the growing strength of the NSM. In particular, the ten who stood up to 100 antis in Tyler should be commended for their courage.
However, getting only 10 people to a rally can marginalize a group, particularly when queers and queer-enablers can put 2,000 on the street in Los Angeles, or 3,500 on the street in Salt Lake City. We can get away with 50 people at a pro-White rally, but even though they get good media publicity, ten is just too few and the antis will laugh at us. Perhaps the NSM should concentrate on one rally at a time until it builds its strength up more.
