RESPONSE TO 10/22/12 Anita Wadhwani article about me, Virginia Abernethy:
The Tennessean and USAToday ran the same article about me [Wadwhani, 10/22/12].
The article is accurate in several respects, but inaccurate in others, and thus disturbing. The SPLC's negative, and hateful, characterizations of people like me who oppose mass immigration is factually untrue.
The SPLC has upped the ante by adding the false charge of neo-Nazi to the tired old [and incorrect in my case and in most cases] label of racist.
Organizations like the ADL are complicit in these hateful smears and, at the least, do themselves a disservice by repeating charges designed to tar people who disagree with them.
Apparently, their ideal for the United States is to be part of a borderless world, while Israel, they think, is entitled to secure borders. Whereas the US is not.
The SPLC clearly hates patriots like me. This demonstrates that their "anti-hate" stance is merely a cover for their globalist Marxist agenda. They want Europeans-Americans to "tolerate" their own dispossession. This suicide of a whole people is the goal of their 'Teaching Tolerance'.
Other factual errors in an article that treats the SPLC as authority include:
Factually untrue is that I am a supremacist. I am an ethnic separatist, which means respecting preferences to be with whomever one wishes. I have no objection to campus African-American groups, B’nai B’rith, La Raza or countless others. What I see, however, is that Christian and European-American groups – and only these groups - are targeted for discrimination. They are in the SPLC bulls-eye of hate, hate for anyone who does not agree with the the SPLC's anti-Christian, anti-patriotic, globalist agenda.
Factually untrue is that I am a neoNazi, or that people with whom I associate are neo-Nazi. They are American patriots. Moreover, anyone who has political affiliations associates with people whose language and positions are not identical with their own.
Nor am I racist or anti-Semitic, although I support the recent letter from leaders of mainstream American churches to the effect that Congress should re-examine the no-strings-attached policy of giving large aid packages to Israel.
Further, Kathy McKee is the Arizonan who started and saw though to a successful ballot conclusion Proposition 200. Well into the initiative process in 2004, she asked me to speak with the overseas media, which I was pleased to do. I hope I helped. In any event, 47% of Hispanic voters supported Prop. 200. The harm of mass immigration to less educated working people, including established immigrants, is abundantly clear.
My most important academic work focuses on the "fertility opportunity hypothesis" [see Population Politics and an earlier book, Population Pressure and Cultural Adjustment]. This hypothesis suggests that couples and/or men and women who see expanding economic opportunity will allow larger family size. Couples who perceive diminishing economic opportunity try in all possible ways to avoid additional dependents.
The evidence in support of my fertility opportunity hypothesis is huge and growing. Read the books and post-1993 papers. The hypothesis correctly predicted that fertility rates in the “nine Asian tigers” would decline significantly faster than trend line after those countries’ economic collapse of 1998-99.
American3rd Position is a new Party and one that may draw support from Americans who feel unrepresented by the major Parties. These Americans see Democrats and Republicans as “one bird with two wings”. A3P is pro-American, which means representing the values of the majority of Americans and defending European-Americans from being cast as the destroyers of society. European-Americans are historically, and are still, builders.
European-Americans are on track to becoming a numerical minority in the United States. This trend can be reversed by stopping mass immigration and a conscious coming together of like-minded men and women.
Moreover, European-Americans should begin to identify themselves as an ethnic group that participates on equal footing with other ethnic and racial groups that define the new multicultural reality.
I would prefer a country in which “American” came first and religious and ethnic or racial identities receded to insignificance. But that is no longer the reality, or even the ideal among groups such as the SPLC and ADL.
The SPLC is the real hate group, and its fellow travellers like the ADL are enablers, because they incite divisions and hatred. Unfortunately, the SPLC has power, has defined the new reality, and forces all of us to identify by ethnic group whether or not that is our first inclination.
We continue to write and work in faith that truth and honor will prevail.
