In response to the original Colorado Springs Gazette story identifying the two accused murderers of Susana Pelayo-Perez, Kandin Eric Wilson and Kyle Robert Gray, as members of the American Nazi Party, ANP Chairman Rocky Suhayda appended this comment to my previous post:
I'm somewhat sorry to have to rain on the parade, of these people who wish the ANP less than well - but, these two people are not, or ever were in our organization. Unfortunately, too many folks confuse the ANP with "other" so-called "nazi" groups, including one that likes to call itself "America's Nazi Party". I would not be surprised to find that they were associated with "nsm". "AA" you requested a comment, there it is.

The ANP's SA Political Advisor John Taylor Bowles also addresses this issue on N.S. Acumen, and adds that the American Nazi Party does not have "members", but only official supporters. It is deplorable that the Gazette apparently made no effort to contact the American Nazi Party to get their response prior to publishing their report; if the two accused men were members of the NAACP, the Gazette would undoubtedly have contacted the NAACP and perhaps even requested their permission before publishing the story.
The Gazette continues to provide daily coverage of the trial in their blog entitled "The Sidebar". In this June 23rd post, The Sidebar discloses that jury selection has concluded and the trial has begun. Deputy District Attorney Nathan Whitney described Susana Pelayo-Perez as a hard-working mother of four who was working two jobs while pursing U.S. citizenship. She was a manager of a La Casita restaurant and owned a janitorial service franchise. But Pelayo-Perez was harboring a secret. She was having an affair with a childhood friend, which is why she was sitting in the passenger seat of her boyfriend’s white SUV around 1 a.m. that morning. Whitney said the boyfriend was later able to pick out Wilson’s mug shot from a photographic lineup and identify him as the shooter.
But Wilson’s attorney Philip L. DuBois maintains that Wilson was not the shooter, supporting that contention by saying that the boyfriend was later unable to identify the shooter at a subsequent hearing for Wilson and his co-defendant Kyle Robert Gray. DuBois also revealed how Wilson and Gray were caught. Police were unable to solve the case until Gray wrote them a letter offering information about the murder. At the time, Gray was in jail on a violation of a restraining order against his wife. Seeing an opportunity, Gray told cops "I can wrap this case up, if you give me some love". Gray then shopped Wilson to get himself off the hook; Gray allegedly described himself described himself as a “soldier” in the American Nazi Party, characterizing the group as nothing more or less than a criminal gang, and saying "“They’re thugs, punks. They steal stuff. They hurt people. They threaten. They’re just white gang bangers".
This sounds a lot similar to what informers Keith Cotter and Brad Callahan did to Shaun Walker, Travis Massey, and Eric Egbert, doesn't it? It opens up the possibility that Gray actually did the shooting and is now trying to dump it on Wilson to save his own ass. Once again, in The Sidebar, there is no evidence that the Gazette contacted the American Nazi Party to get their input.
From reviewing the comments in my previous post, it's obvious that the ANP's calls for the White Nationalist movement to clean up its act and purge its misfits have ruffled a lot of feathers. Some commenters go beyond merely disagreeing with the ANP and openly call for its demise. It is deplorable -- and un-Aryan -- to call for the demise of another pro-White organization that is clearly productive, even if they take a different approach. The ANP remains a valid option for those who prefer Phase 2-type national socialist activism.
