Jared Taylor Caves In To Political Pressure, Cancels The 2011 American Renaissance Conference; Online Version To Take Place

Update: Even though the American Renaissance conference is now cancelled, an online version will take place. Post re-titled to reflect the new information.

Note: All previous posts on the 2011 American Renaissance Conference available HERE, with the most recent post displaying first.

February 1st, 2011 may go down as a day of infamy -- for the snooty "valuable intellectual properties" who look down their noses at street activists and national socialists within the White Nationalist community. For it is the day that Jared Taylor surrendered to political correctness and canceled the 2011 American Renaissance Conference altogether.

The first indication of a complete cancellation came from WSOC Channel 9 and WCNC Channel 36. WSOC reported that Stephen Webster, the assistant editor of American Renaissance, confirmed on Wednesday February 2nd that the conference, which was planned for this weekend, has been canceled. WCNC also used the term "cancelled" in their report.

But I was uncertain whether this indicated a complete cancellation. So I researched further, and found the smoking gun published on Counter Currents Publishing. Yes, Jared Taylor has completely caved in:

Dear Conference Registrant,

I am very sorry to inform you that the AR conference scheduled for February 4 through 6 must be canceled. Despite strong assurances that it would not submit to pressure, the hotel with which we had initially contracted has broken its contract with us. We have investigated many possible alternative venues but have not been able to find one.

There is evidence that at least one elected Charlotte official was working behind the scenes to deny us a venue, and our legal counsel is looking into grounds for action against the city.

We are deeply sorry for the great inconvenience this causes you, and I apologize to you personally. As the head of the publication that organized this conference, the fault is entirely mine.

At your instruction we will, of course, refund all registrations and banquet fees.

Many of you will have bought non-refundable air tickets. Generally, the amount spent on such tickets can, for a period of a year, be used to buy a different ticket on the same airline. However, most airlines then deduct $150 from the amount that can be spent to buy the new ticket. If you bought a non-refundable ticket, please send us proof of purchase and we will send you a check for $150. We do not want anyone to suffer financial loss because of this cancellation.

We have heard that because of the impending storms, some airlines are offering full refunds on “non-refundable” tickets. This offer may not apply to tickets for February 4, but it may be worth inquiring.

We are considering alternative models for future American Renaissance conferences.

Again, please accept my sincerest apologies. We greatly value your continuing support, and deeply regret that we will not be seeing you on February 4.

Warm regards,
Jared Taylor

Update: We've now learned that there will still be an online version of the AR Conference. NPITV says that each originally scheduled talk will be remotely web-cast and filmed in high definition for subsequent download.

The fact that Taylor is offering refunds does NOT mitigate the infamy. At least in 2010, they held a rump conference in a local restaurant in Virginia. But Taylor isn't even making a token effort this time. They could have, as a symbolic gesture of protest, conducted a one-day open air conference in front of a public building or at a public park in Charlotte to show that they would not be silenced. Here's how VNN Forum webmaster Alex Linder, who led a rally in Knoxville in 2007, would have handled it:

...the right and obvious thing to do is tell the people to show up at assembly point X, and then march over to the hotel, and then barricade it, if at all possible, screaming and shouting and demanding it comply with the contract. That is exactly how niggers would do it. Granted, the media would support the niggers, but IF The Turd dared on this path, he would achieve a good effect, and very possibly win the day. And even if it didn't work out, after the rally the people could all retire to some other public or private place and hear the same old boring lectures anyway. There are many ways to do the thing, giving up is the wrong option.

But Taylor chose to surrender. No wonder Alex Linder characterizes Taylor as a "polished turd"; perhaps Linder is right, but for different reasons than those he specifies. Taylor knew that this possibility existed, and failed to account for it. When's the last time you heard of the National Socialist Movement canceling a rally because of political pressure? When's the last time you heard of the American Nazi Party canceling one of their events because of political pressure? When the "suits" quit, the "boots" soldier on.

Jared Taylor has, in effect, sabotaged his own organization. Greg Johnson writes, "I think it highly unlikely that AR will be able to put on another conference. How many people are likely to be willing to set aside the time, make the plans, and shell out the money for the second or third time with the prospect of another cancellation hanging over their heads?" No kidding! The fact that Taylor may be a brilliant thinker, writer, and speaker who is rational, broad-minded, decent, and honorable and lah-dee-dah-dee-dah-dee-dah is NO LONGER ENOUGH! We need people who won't back down under pressure. Jared Taylor is simply incapable of going that far. Leo Durocher was right -- nice guys finish last!

And for that reason, Jared Taylor and American Renaissance are no longer worthy of white nationalist support, unless they sue the people responsible for harassing them. If Taylor wants to salvage anything from this debacle, he must sue the mayor of Charlotte for violating his constitutional rights and for tortious interference with a contract, and he should sue the hotel for breach of contract. AR’s list of subscribers or any other type of information is entirely irrelevant and is not subject to discovery.

I might as well tell you now that I will write a whole bunch of stuff against the ANP in this BLOG article about Jaord Taylor even though it doesn't have anything to do with the subject.

My psychiatrist says its good for me to come into this BLOG and vent my anger at the American Nazi Party and Rocky and Bowles than abusing animals and hurting others from my uncontrollable anger. So, I think the recent stuff of stuff I wrote about the Redneck Shop- is pretty imaginative and I deserve some praise.

Why should anyone be surprised. Taylor is not a real White Nationalist anway, he is a Con Man, Am-Ren is like the ANP, all about money. let's keep it in context.

Job said...

I think "completely cave in" is not accurate, if you mean to say he didn't even try to fight the pressure. He did, and he did his best. He could not put his supporters in danger or jeopardize future opportunities (he is likely considering lawsuits for all of this)

Anonymous said...

How has he caved in? The hotel cancelled the conference. It's still going to be online. What is the problem?

Anchorage Activist said...

Anonymous 3:14 P.M. - The message from Taylor clearly indicates it's cancelled. How can it be online if it's not going to take place?

Anonymous said...

AA, the post at 1:37 is the ANP or an antiracist group allied with them. The person writing the "my psychiatrist" posts are just spamming and a pathetic attempt to cloud the issues. They aren't trying to dump on the ANP but rather distract from their actions.

Anchorage Activist said...

Anonymous 3:14 P.M. - Doggone it, you're right. The Conference will still take place online. The speeches will be remotely recorded then broadcast via NPTTv. Not sure that will do much good, though.

Nonetheless, I've updated and re-titled my post to reflect this information.

What a clusterfuck!!!

The American Nazi Paty does not have to cancel evets due to pressure, they receive NO pressure, wonder why? They have meetings in the back room of a building owned by a BLACK PREACHER, and is funded with money stolen from a young White Nationalist. Hey get the picture...

@AnchorageActivist

I signed up online to watch it via webcast and they sent me an email saying it was cancelled but they are still going to have videos of the scheduled topics that were set for the conference. I don't know if the speakers are going to upload them separately and it will be a webcast or what but the email said they were still going to webcast.

"A polished turd". Don't that say it all. Just like Jamie Kelso's upcoming CPAC suck & fuck. It's a conservatards gimpfest. More bullshit from the right wing cunts. Hollow promises and lies. And not that the left wing offers anything. It doesn't. Wake up america!

I wonder why AmRen didn't approach the ANP and ask to use/rent their hall? I suppose that they would rather cancel their event than be around such Aryan images as Swastika's etc. Pitiful

Anonymous said...

Am-Ren would have to ask David Kennedy, the Black Preacher who is the owner of the building, but since Am-Ren has Jews speak, that might be ok.

There are several reasons besides the NSM graffiti that makes the AMRen conference undoable at the redneck shop. The first thing is that there are cameras everywhere recording everything each time there is a gathering. I don't know who is doing the recording: Taylor Bowles, the ANP, John Howards, the FBI or the black preacher. Who knows?

I'm not trying to just flame the ANP but they arent about to be upstaged that badly by a more serious white nationalist group. AMRen draws hundreds and the ANP is lucky to get over ten people. Besides the way the press would spin it, they'd try to say that Taylor Bowles, claiming to be the true president of the USA, was then associated with American Renaissance

Nobody in the AMRen crowd wants to be associated with the NSM, let alone the ANP either. Even now they are enbroiled in the biggest scandle to hit white nationalism in a long time. That is an even better reason to stay far away from the redneck shop. I'd say someone is safe going there to purchase a tee shirt or something but I wouldn't get into any heavy dealings over the use of the meeting room. If I was Rocky, I'd want as little press attention as possible right now too.

The thing is, if Jared Taylor really wanted to have the conference bad enough, he could. Anybody could easily rent out a building in an industrial park for next to nothing. It wouldn't be cluttered with junk or have Swastikas spray painted everywhere. If things were different, think about what a real asset the redneck shop would have been to racialist in North and South Carolina.

HERE IS YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE, FROM TODAY'S DAN SCHRUENDER BLOG(ANP). EVERY OTHER DAY IS PLEDGE DAY..

"It's pledge time again. Please get your pledges in in a timely manner. As I've previously said, the ANP has bills that must be paid every month, so please don't procrastinate. Thank you."

WHAT BILLS.. THE ANP IS A PO BOX, THE RED NECK SHOP IS OWNED BY A BLACK PREACHER, THEY PAY NO RENT, THEY MAKE PEOPLE, INCLUDING THEIR NON MEMBERS-MEMBERS PAY FOR THE FLIERS THEY DISTRIBUTE. BILLS=ROCKY'S RENT AND LITE BILL.

Try to stay on topic. If I was them, I'd stop begging for money until their legal troubles have passed.

Have you heard that Rocky has turned over leadership officially to Taylor Bowles? It looks like he just gave up and walked away.

Anonymous said...

The actual word is that Rocky is totally freaked, especially when he got a request for a Statement and accounting for funds from Bowles. This is why he vanished back in December for over a month. He didn't even answer his phone. If he turned over leadership to Bowles, there would be a shitstorm with Kozak and "Hess" who have been with Rocky for years.

Anonymous said...

I hope he has enough sense not to try and cook his books. A good lawyer ought to be able to clear him of everything Bowles may have gotten him in trouble for. What I heard was that nobody has heard from Rocky in a month. Maybe he hopes Bowles will resign or that the media shit storm will catch up to Bowles first. Obviously Bowles could shut Rocky down if he wanted to and Rocky knows it.

Anonymous said...

Why don't they just rent out some of the larger tents like you see at other outdoor gatherings and hold the event on public land? Having a meeting hall means nothing with no supporters. Jared Taylor has supporters but no place to meet. I think standing outside in plain view of the world would be a good move for the Am Ren folks. Besides, you'll never get anywhere locked away in a backroom somewhere, listening to each other blab.

Last year I had considered attendeing the AR conference (although I'm not a memeber), but it seemed iffy... so I did not make flight or hotel reservations.
Well they caved in to hotel "law" being that hotels make their rules.

This year I wanted to see if they could handle the situation. Nope.

I had suggested a year ago that they BUY a hall of some sort in a minor city (with air links near) and run it as a year-round base for programs for online TV: both research and lots of white culture shows. (Don't we have commedians to poke fun at others too? Music folks blackballed by mainstream?)
I can see many events produced in such a facility, including live shows, making revenue, and...

Use that hall for AR's conference. If you own it, nobody gets to cancel an event. If others invade your space... they can clearly be evicted, by force if necessary.

Actually we need several such bases around US, Canada, Australia and NZ, Britain, Europe, S Africa.
And if each produces some programs we could have a 24/7 NETWORK, one also able to report on regional hot news events, not relying on the manipulated mainstream media.

Various organizations might own the various bases. Let's cooperate!

10:27, give it a rest. The party is over for the ANP. Get back on topic instead of making the ANP look even more pathetic.

I really think we're going to see a drawing closer of white nationalist groups in the near future. The weirdo/normal person ratio is the best it has ever been. You see more and more people rejecting the leadership of santanist or bizzare individuals claiming to run for president. The day of the kooks are numbered as America gets serious about racial issues.

Half the fun of having a "gathering" is making reservations under assumed names and battling the antifa out in the street. We can't hide forever.

There are more nuts here than in a fruit-cake, probably more fruits too. While this craziness is limited to this forum, the ANP continues reaching, educating and organizing that small but growing portion of the White population that is both angry and intelligent enough to both understand and be willing to work to build a pro-White political effort in America. Honestly, I don't know for sure if these nasty and idiotic posts are the work of some movement loser, disgruntled over the new direction that the ANP is taking, in actually taking part in real-politics, or the 'jews' who regard the ANP's agenda as very dangerous from the age-old 'protest clowns', who have brought such failure and embarrassment to the White Struggle for the past few decades. In either case, "AA", its a shame that for either 'ratings', or whatever, you allow such comstant accusations to stand without requiring PROOF. I never thought that on a so-called WN resource, such JEWISH BIG-LIE tactics would be allowed... Silly me.

1:45, you sound like Taylor Bowles. Someone posted a link to Taylor's old website plainly showing the stolen goods. There are youtube videos shot by independant sources comfirming Nick Chappel as the "owner" of the redneck shop. If you found a way to shut Nick up for good, you can't erase the videos. Everybody from Alabama Klansmen to Virginia skinheads know that Taylor Bowles stole from Nick Chappel and the NSM. Proof has been posted on here and other websites again and again.

I hate to say this but Rocky is just going to hide in Detroit while Taylor waddles around daring Nick Chappel to say anything outside the movement. Even Rocky openly joked about the theft a few months back. I think it is time to go to the media. Rocky has had every opportunity to fix this thing. We'll all just have to deal with the fallout best we can.

First go to this link.

http://www.archive.org/web/web.php

Now type in Taylor's old website, www.nsoa88.com into the blank below where it says "wayback machine." Next left click on the button that says "take me back." Now you'll see several links starting from 2007 and ending up in 2008. Choose Jan. 15 2008. You'll notice a page that looks almost exactly like the ANP page. Now click on NSOA/Bowles Campaign Merchandise. There you will see Taylor Bowles plainly trying to fence NSM goods on the internet, across state lines. Notice the CD titled "Iron Eagle." That is an NSM records title that you can only purchase from the NSM. Another title is "Operation Race War." Did Jeff Scheop sell these to Taylor after he declared war on the NSM with his NSOA organization? No, he stole them along with thousands of dollars of other merchandise.

Did you really think you were going to get away with it Taylor just because we were "Nazis"?

Anonymous said...

Has Chappell shut up?? Where is he now? Did he join another WN Group? It has been posted here that Rocky went into hiding in December when people came looking to get his statement?? That sounds like something is going on big time. Taylor and Howard would seem to be in real shit and Rocky too if he took some of the money. It is strange that no antifas go after the ANP, Rocky or Bowles for that matter.

I want to thank the posters on this blog for exposing the ANP for being theiving scum. It is time to clean up the movement. 14/88

From what I have read it has been prior ANP members who were so disgusted with what they saw and walked, are the ones who finally stepped up and posted some concrete information here. This may also explain why theer were so few at ANP's October Meet, I would not eneter a building owned by a mud.

Anonymous said...

I think all the stuff about the ANP and Bowles and Rocky is fabulous. Please continue on. Maybe the next story can be how Bowles brought Satanism into the NSM when he joined and converted Herrington and Schoep to it, or how he introduced Jeff Schoep to his new wife that had a nigger kid before she met him, or how Bowles held the window so Schoep could climb into it and commit burglary, or how Bowles set the oil rig on fire in the Gulf of Mexico and led to thew massive oil spill, or how Bowles forced Schoep and his new wife to majke a trip to Mexico for a vacation on NSM funds. Bowles held a gu7n to his head and made them do that too!

"Did you really think you were going to get away with it Taylor just because we were "Nazis"?"

NOTICE THAT 2:59pm ended his comment with the above words. This proves that he is an NSM person or ex-NSM seeking revenge and havoc on the ANP. Schoep can't stand the fact that the ANP IS DOING SO GOOD and he is a lousy funcking leader. Neither can the nincompoop who writes these anti-ANP articles.
Notice the theme of his posts is always to pry a wedge between Bowles and Suhayda. But it apparently isn't happening. lol

All I am reading is that Taylor Bowles is a theif. From what I see, there is solid proof.

Anonymous said...

4:21, I agree, there is enough here, especially what has been written by the former ANP people that Taylor should stop climbing his soab box and bashing others and preaching about character. What was done to that kid is no less than a crime. This blog should stop the censorship, it looks like it is based on his bias toward certain pets than a worry about harm to the Movement, the Movement ha sbeen harmed. To have the NSM hold an event and have its Organizer confirm the so called Holocaust and run away from Hitler, the and the original Nazi Party is a disgrace. You cannot attack Jerod Taylor and say Jerod taylor caved in and let these statements by the NSM Organizergo and even compliment the NSM on their new ideas. This is actually caving in.

Anonymous said...

The clear and plain facts:

1. There is overwhelming proof that Taylor Bowles stole from Nick Chappel, a teenager at the time and the NSM. Links, web archive, video and Nick Chappel's own words have backed this up. There were also scores of eye whitnesses.

2. Rocky reported on the theft. He cannot claim ignorance. He is a hypocrit.

What is not fact:

1. Taylor Bowles is a homosexual. This is just based on assumption. No facts support Taylor Bowles being gay.

2. Rocky took stolen money and/or goods from Taylor Bowles. This is based on rumors that originated from comments made by Rocky.

3. Rocky is a Jew. No proof has been offered that Rocky is anything more than what he says he is.


Rocky, you can keep playing silly games and making retarded posts trying to make the charges against Bowles look far-fetched. This is only an insult to your own supporters' intelligence. They want real answers, not "the NSM is out to get us because we are doing so well." They are there, Rocky. They know you aren't doing well. Words can't keep a ship a float and you can't cross an ocean sitting in the dry dock. There are some good people in your organization who also want justice. Some have already left after seeing this side of you. Do something solid or this will follow you around forever.

"2. Rocky took stolen money and/or goods from Taylor Bowles. This is based on rumors that originated from comments made by Rocky."

THIS HAS BEEN REPORTED AS FACT BY EYE WITNESS ACCOUNTS AS POSTED HERE BY X ANP MEMBERS, AND IF ROCKY HIMSELF CONFIRMED IT IN COMMENTS, THAT IN ITSELF CONFIRMS IT AS FACT AS WELL.

I agree with 6:25. Enough people have said that Rocky accepted money that Bowles stole from the NSOA account.

The ANP would be surprised at the support they'd have or regain if the didn't support theives. Rocky messed up when he took a throwback from the NSM leadership. He should have known better.

I can understand certain people not wanting to accept the fact that Taylor Bowles is a theif. He is. Live with it. The proof is there. Any court in the United States would find him guilty. Rocky and the ANP are no better than the NSM. Actually they are worse. Jeff Scheop wouldn't allow a criminal like Bowles to call the shots.

It was more like Bowles wouldn't allow a misfit like Schoep calling the shots. Bowles has did more in his little finger than Schoep ever can and ever will.

Look at these comments real good everyone. The nutcase posting the anti-ANP ones believes everyone will think alot of people are in this BLOG posting against the ANP when it is just him posting continuous lies and ridiculous remarks and then answering them too. What a dysfunctional mental-case.

From what I see and read and KNOW Taylor Bowles is a respectable National Socialist leader and no proof of anything wrong has been presented to prove otherwise. Where are the eye witnesses and their statements? He sold a few music CDS on his past campaign website. Big deal. Probably brought them when he was a member of the NSM and wanted to get rid of them and sell them after he departed their lunacy. Duh!

THE RED NECK SHOP-TAYLOR BOWLES & CHAPPELL FACTS- PART 1

The following is a brief history of the disgusting circus and character unbecoming that led this former long time ANP supporter and others to leave. This information is both eyewitness and public information.

The Red Neck Shop is operated by John Howard, a washed up Klansman in the old Echo Theater in Laurens. The Theater was converted to the Red Neck Shop by John Howard and his then friend and fellow Klansman Michael Burden in 1996. Burden acquired ownership of the building with Howard having rights to use the building, NOT OWNERSHIP OF THE BUILDING.

In 1997 Michael Burden sold the building and transferred title to David Kennedy, a BLACK preacher who fights the White Nationalist Movement.

The ownership of the building by a black militant created a firestorm between Howard and Burden. Howard made several failed attempts to block the transfer by filing various bogus documents, all of which were not valid since Howard never owned the building in the first place. Howard even attempted to transfer the building to several different owners after he learned that Burden had sold it to a black, only to be blocked by his lack of legal OWNERSHIP.

Then, nearly 10 years later, in 2007, and after the arrival and association of Howard with John Taylor Bowels, after Bowel’s move to Laurens, SC under suspicious circumstances from Maryland, Howard with Taylor Bowles assistance convinced a young Movement follower of Bowles, Nick Chappell, to purchase the building for in excess of $200,000. Bowles was aware that Chappell had come into a significant amount of money from a inheritance and had convinced Chappell to make a sizeable investment in Bowel’s 2008 Presidential Campaign to a tune of $18,000.00, which Bowles used to pay off a past due Child Support Enforcement Judgment for several years past. Bowles use of funds from his “Presidential Campaign” is a violation of law.

I also believe John Taylor Bowles to be a respectable national socialist. I am tired of this endless flaming; it perpetuates negative biases and stereotypes against the national socialist community and inflicts damage upon the Cause.

With this, I'm closing down further comments on this story.
