White Patriots Distribute The Aryan Alternative #4 Newspaper In Crozet And Waynesboro, Virginia For The Vanguard News Network
Early on Thursday May 21st, 2009, White activists acting on behalf of the Vanguard News Network distributed copies of its newest newspaper, The Aryan Alternative #4, in Crozet and Waynesboro, Virginia (in Augusta and Albemarle Counties near Charlottesville), and the usual suspects are up in arms. A Vanguard News Network Forum thread is devoted to discussion of this activism. Active Topix Forum thread HERE.

A white female named Toni Conley acted quite offended and claimed the authors and distributors are "very sick people". [Ed. Note: That's true, they're sick alright - sick of TNB, TSB, TKB, TQB, and all other manifestations of forced diversity.] Crozet even insists that if you don't have anything nice to say, keep your beliefs to yourself.
Billy Gorman characterized the paper is nothing but racist hate speech. "Some things that come to mind are fear, kind of fear mongering which is a common strategy but upsetting is the emotional part of it," said Gorman. Others, who remained unindentified, claimed they found the delivery "unsettling" and "upsetting" in a neighborhood full of kids.
An individual who posted on RealCrozetVA also reacted badly and claimed county police told him that throwing newspapers in driveways constituted littering, and that each newspaper thrown in such a fashion would constitute one count of littering.
But Josh Wheeler, the Associate Director of the Thomas Jefferson Center for Protection of Free Expression, was quick to remind the public that the newspaper distribution is still legal, even if some take offense. "There is no unprotected category of speech called 'hate speech,' it is in fact protected by the first amendment," said Wheeler. He added that unless the words are threatening or encourage illegal behavior, they're fair game, saying that government is not entitled to punish us just for our thoughts.
VNN Distribution Coordinator Glenn Miller told local media representatives that anyone who objected to the newspaper needed only to call him, and he would ensure they received no more copies. He also added that although "We don't like to upset people, we tell the truth. If the truth upsets people, what the hell are you going to do about it".
According to City-Data.com, Crozet, a community of 2,820 people west of Charlottesville about halfway between there and Waynesboro, is 91 percent White, while Waynesboro itself, a community of 19,520, is 85 percent White. It's easy to rhapsodize about diversity when you don't have to live amongst it.
