But One People's Project goes beyond spin. They habitually lie about their activism. And they've been caught in a flagrant lie about a recent confrontation with the League of American Patriots in New Jersey.
According to accounts by both OPP and NYC Indymedia, the League of American Patriots (LEAP) met at the Alwood Branch Library on Lyall Road in Clifton, New Jersey on March 21st, 2009. Not only was it a normal bimonthly meeting, but they were also commemorating their first anniversary as an organization. OPP states that fifteen attendees were present, among them Erick Weigel of the Nationalist Coalition and attorney Alex Carmichael, who is also LEAP’s co-founder and who ran the meeting. Some of them had been seen at other meetings, including at a David Irving lecture in New York City last summer. Here's a YouTube video shot by the antis; note that they deliberately manipulate the video to show the White activists in the worst possible light.
OPP then claims that shortly after the meeting begun, seven antifa crashed it. Although the main door to the meeting room was locked from the inside, the antifa entered through a different door and started chanting "Nazis out". OPP claims the attendees got "distressed", and that they started turning on one another. Then OPP makes their most outrageous claim - that one of the attendees "pulled a knife".
And there is the big lie, for we have a rebuttal from Alex Carmichael himself, posted on this Stormfront thread:
I just wanted to bring this disturbing matter to the attention of the Stormfront community. The Jewish backed, multi-culti One People's Project and local ARA members temporarily disrupted the Saturday March 21 meeting that we advertised on this forum. These low life groups reported as much with two silly articles on their home pages; making ridiculously libelous claims such as "we are a group of National Vanguard leftovers," I "call myself the next Hitler," and that "one of us pulled a knife on them." Any cursory examination of our site reveals that we are in a no way a National Socialist organization. Also, the police did not search or arrest any of our people for possessing a weapon.
I must set the record straight about a few other details. Several of us selflessly kept these rag tag Communists/Anarchist thugs contained by the meeting room's front entrance while waiting for the police to arrive. A few of our brave men also covered the rear fire exit to ensure that other members made it to their cars safely. I was particularly concerned that this band of exceedingly ugly, drug addled, out of shape degenerates (chief among them was the pitch black Zulu leader, Daryl Lamont Jenkins) would make good on their verbal threats by attacking our wholesome, yet physically vulnerable, female members.
Though we decided to disperse from the Clifton, NJ branch library as they have written, we were able to continue the meeting at a nearby private establishment shortly afterward. Much progress was made and we look forward to those upcoming projects discussed last Saturday. Unfortunately, we must always have three locations for each meeting: the primary gathering site; a secondary one to meet new recruits; and a confidential back up place in case we're forced to leave the first. OPP/ARA claims to have followed one of us from the widely emailed second location to the primary one.
We have already settled on a highly secure venue for our future metro NY area bi-monthly meetings. I wrote this brief article to set the record straight on the matter and as a cautionary tale for fellow nationalists. By never giving up in the face of physical intimidation by Marxist vermin, we have already won half the battle. I encourage posted responses and PM's/emails to either myself or my friend and colleague, the ever present Boy Howdy. Those who wish to speak with me personally can do so at (973) 934-8361. Hopefully we'll meet up with more of you guys in May! www.leagueap.org
So OPP told a number of lies. First, they did not chase "LEAP" out of the library; LEAP stood their ground until police arrived. Second, there was no infighting among the White activists. And finally, there was no knife pulled.
OPP reports that several antifa were detained for about one hour by police, but no charges were filed.
The League of American Patriots has been consistenly active during their one year of existence. On September 20-21, 2008, they distributed pro-White flyers in Roxbury, New Jersey. On October 14th, 2008, they distributed flyers in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. And on February 24th, 2009, they distributed flyers in Fanwood, New Jersey. And that's only the activism I'm aware of; there could be more.
