While media stories have been published by the Duluth City Pages and the Northlands NewsCenter, the real meat of this post comes from this Stormfront thread, beginning on page 51. Here are the pertinent posts (after the jump):
Plenetwork, February 2nd, 10:29 P.M:
My understanding is the Rally will be held March 3rd in Duluth Minnesota at 10:00 AM at Priley Circle at city hall.
Plenetwork, February 3rd, 8:59 A.M:
This is not organization-specific but simply a collective effort of various pro-white individuals. The permits have been filled out and turned back in. The rally will be at 10:00 am Saturday march 3rd at the city hall. I will be there even if it is only a few of us. [Ed. Note: According to Northland NewsCenter, the Duluth City Parks and Recreation Department and the City Clerk's Office said no permits have been filed for the rally. And City Attorney Gunner Johnson and Duluth Police confirm they have not received a permit for a pro-white rally as of this post.]
Babymaker, February 13th, 11:16 A.M:
There is the link to the story. We here have been getting a new Klavern organized in Duluth since this has started. Not by choice but by the will of those in Duluth who are contacting us wanting to join saying they have had enough of this garbage, so this might be a good thing. Its waking people up and sending them to us.
Babymaker, February 13th, 8:43 P.M:
As soon as the new recruits in Duluth are organized, they will be fighting against this in several ways. After all, this is the reason these families are coming to us asking to join. We will support them with manpower, ideas and Brotherly fellowship. They now know they are not alone and that things are going to get better.
Although Babymaker doesn't specifically identify the Klan organization in his posts, there's a link to the Fraternal White Knights in the signature, so it is logical to assume the FWK is the organization represented.
There's also non-racialist opposition to the Un-Fair Campaign. Phil Pierson created the "STOP Racist Unfair Campaign" Facebook page (must be a Facebook member to view) to mobilize opposition. However, at this point, it appears Pierson may be more scared of associating with White racialists rather than standing up to the local anti-racists. On Facebook, Pierson wrote "The unfair campaign and their openly racist message don't even deserve the attention they've been getting. I say we treat them the same way we treat these white supremacist clowns. Ignore them. All they want is attention". In addition, one Stormfront member notes that persons on Stop Un-Fair have been slandering and banning those who comments are deemed too "racist".
Perhaps Pierson is subscribing to the popular stereotype of "white supremacists" as shaven-headed, tattooed individuals wearing uniforms, brandishing swastika flags, and bellowing "Rahowa" or some other guttural war cry. What he doesn't know is that a pro-White rally organized under Stormfront auspices will have none of those elements. The last time Stormfront organized a pro-White rally was on June 16th, 2007 in Knoxville on behalf of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom, and as you can see in this post, the participants looked and dressed no different than ordinary people. We can expect the same this time.
What Is The Un-Fair Campaign? The Un-Fair Campaign was launched in January by a loose umbrella coalition called the Twin Ports Coalition, comprised of the City of Duluth, St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services, the Central Labor Body, Lake Superior College, University of Minnesota Duluth, University of Wisconsin-Superior, the NAACP, and the YWCA. Their campaign, which will include seven months of events, billboards, a website, public service announcements, and various media splashes, is directed strictly against the White community; they want White people to become aware of the unfairness of judging people by their race and of their so-called responsibility to help bring racism to an end. WhiteNewsNow provides contact information on the members of the Duluth City Council should anyone want to express themselves to these people.
Even though Duluth is 90 percent White, this "hate Whitey" campaign is being led by progressive anti-racist whiggers and the white elite; Mayor Don Ness is personally leading the charge. Also note the prominent involvement of three universities; this is no surprise since colleges are the incubators of anti-racist hatred and apostate doctrines such as "white privilege"; they also teach that only Whites can be racist. Proponents of white privilege doctrine maintain that white people receive advantages in life merely because of the color of their skin. They attempt to defend it by saying that most white people are unconscious of this privilege. Since there is no way to objectively or empirically prove otherwise, which would require one to prove a negative, this line or argument -- and indeed, the whole concept of white privilege -- is invalid. It also can promote a distorted sense of entitlement and resentment against the White community by various non-white communities.
A handout from Portland Community College in Oregon best illustrates anti-racist thinking prevalent within academia:
"Racism involves the subordination of people of color by white people. While individual persons of color may well discriminate against a white person or another person of color because of their race, this does not qualify as racism according to our definition because that person of color cannot depend upon all the institutions of society to enforce or extend his or her personal dislike. Nor can he or she call upon the force of history to reflect and enforce that prejudice. . . . History provides us with a long record of white people holding and using power and privilege over people of color to subordinate them, not the reverse."
Privilege: The structures of racism work in two ways: to discriminate against and subordinate people of color, and to privilege white people. Privileges are unearned benefits from the structuring of inequality, and as such are intimately tied to discrimination. Privilege (unearned advantages) is sometimes difficult for those receiving them to see. This is particularly true in a societal environment such as the United States, when we think that we get things because we are nice people, or because we worked for them. Molly Ivins once alluded to privilege with the analogy of baseball - a person is born on third base, but thinks they hit a triple. A good introduction to privilege is the 1988 article by Peggy McIntosh "White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack", and Allen Johnson's book "Privilege, Power, and Difference" is more detailed and highly readable.
However, because a White person cannot prove objectively or empirically that he's not privileged, it shows that the purpose of this indoctrination is not to promote dialogue or discussion, but to quash it by intimidating Whites into silence and compliance with the anti-racist agenda. It proves once again the validity of the Mantra -- anti-racist is code for anti-White.
