Paul Fromm's report on the Council of
Conservative Citizens meeting in Charleston, S.C. (June 5-6, 1998)
Speaker after speaker at as June 5-6, semi-annual
meeting of the Council of Conservative
Citizens (CoCC) sounded the alarm: America is being invaded
and immigration reform in needed now! The Council under the direction
of St. Louis lawyer Gordon Lee Baum is America's foremost populist
organization. A special panel, chaired by broadcaster and author
Louis Tuttle March, focused on immigration. March, co-author of
The Great Betrayal: The Elite's War on Middle America, declared:
"I look upon myself as being a friend of the American workingman,
the man who works for a living. The policy of free trade and its
twin uncontrolled immigration are wiping out the American workingman.
It's all about greed. We already have too much unskilled labour.
This is already the best place in the world to run a scam and
to go on welfare." As Canadian civil libertarians and defenders
of free speech like Doug Christie and Paul Fromm have noted, the
immigration invasion has led to a serious curtailing of the right
to speak as an ever more desperate elite seeks to gag discussion
of and dissent from the unpopular immigration policies they've
imposed. "One of the downsides" of this mass immigration, March
added, "is speech codes. You can't offend more and more categories
of people. You're free to speak, but not to speak freely."
Jared Taylor, author of Paved With Good Intentions:
The Failure of Race Relations in Contemporary America, said: "There
are only two questions: Does America need more people and, if
so, what kind of people?" The publisher of the monthly journal
American Renaissance, then asked: "When was the last time you
drove down the highway and said: 'I haven't been in a traffic
jam in the last 15 minutes; we need more people? Did you think
back to that little town you grew up in and say: 'We didn't have
any Mexicans or Guatemalans or Haitians; how poor we were?" Taylor
explained that 90 per cent of the more than 1 millions immigrants
each year are now non-white. "In 1900, the U.S. was less than
1 per cent Hispanic. Very soon, there will be more Hispanics than
Taylor warned of the dangers posed by Mexican
hopes to seize parts of the Southwest through immigration -- a
plan called "la reconquista". Mexico, he explained, "recently
changed its citizenship laws so that Mexicans can become American
citizens. The very explicit purpose is for loyal Mexicans to vote
in U.S. elections and further Mexico's political interests."
Taylor cited a number of spokesmen who have been
blunt in their hostility toward White Americans. Art Torres, the
Chairman of the California Democratic Party, said: "Remember Proposition
187 is the last gasp of White America. Understand that."
Torres, said Taylor, "is an open Mexican nationalist
looking forward to the day when Whites become a minority."
Another ominous voice quoted by Taylor is Mike
Hernandes, a Los Angeles city councillor, who said: "We are Mexicans.
We are the future. We will lead this country."
"Demography is destiny," Taylor warned. "These
people understand there's a fight going on. How do we react? We
talk of celebrating diversity! For the past few decades, we've
operated a system where they get preferences the minute they cross
the border. Just this week, the federal government ordered the
State of Alabama to give a test for her driver's licence in Spanish
to a woman who couldn't speak English."
In a fiery conclusion, Taylor asked: "What do
you call those who says we should be glad to be displaced? Traitors!
We must do everything in our power to remove these traitors!"
Dr. Brent Nelson of the University of Arkansas
told the largely Southern audience: "Northern Virginia, Florida
and South Texas are now outside the Anglo-Celtic circle and are
being lost of Dixie to Third World immigrants." The author of
America Balkanized charged: "Big business favours mass immigration
to keep wages down and to keep the Ponzi game on Wall Street going.
"Our biggest enemy is no longer the left," the
spellbinding professor warned. "It is rootless, cosmopolitan transnational
capitalism. Too many local business people are ready to take the
greedy grab today and ignore the consequences tomorrow. Labour
is being imported into the U.S. just as if it were another commodity.
We're being destroyed. It's being done to us by the plain selfish
greed of the ruling elite of this country." The goal of this elite,
Professor Nelson explained, "is to transform themselves from the
leaders of a republic into the leaders of a multinational state,
a North American Brazil, rulers of a terrorized, ignorant proletariat
living barely above survival levels."
The bitter reality, Dr. Nelson observed, is that
the elite intends "to displace our people through massive immigration
from the Third World. We need a complete moratorium on immigration.
Continued mass immigration will destroy Dixie."
Switching to electoral politics, Dr. Nelson noted
that the Republican Party won the presidency and won control of
the Congress only because they carried the South. "They carried
the South only because they carried the Anglo-Celtic core of Dixie."
We must "quit feeding the hand that slaps us," Dr. Brent urged.
"It's safe to say none of the Republican candidates
for Congress will talk of a moratorium on immigration. We can
simply refuse to vote for Republicans and vote for independents,
Dr. Wayne Lutton, co-author of the best seller
The Immigration Invasion, noted that as this century opened,
the world had 1.6 billion people. As it closes, the population
has swollen beyond 6 billion. "Only four countries today allow
large scale immigration: the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
All four countries were previously successful British countries,"
he noted. "It says something that British outposts of civilization
are the targets of immigration and are allowing themselves to
be transformed by people who are not their own."
Dr. Lutton pointed to Malaysian Prime Minister
Mahathir who said: "Third World nations should swamp Europe and
America, if we are going to be global citizens."
"He was declaring demographic warfare," Dr. Lutton
"The 1965 Immigration Act should be referred
to at the 1965 Treason Act, which abolished controls over the
national origins" of immigrants. "The U.S. has actively supported
majority rule in South Africa, but do you see the president or
the politicians in either party saying we should have Majority
rule for the U.S.? Every public opinion polls shows the Majority
is with us." Citing a recent Roper Poll, Lutton noted that 83
per cent favoured lower immigration levels; 70 per cent wanted
fewer than 300,000 immigrants annually, The poll found that 73
per cent of blacks, 66 per cent of liberals, 72 per cent of Democrats
and 70 per cent of Republicans favoured lower immigration levels.
Pentagon officials, he revealed, "were opposed
to the idea of sending troops to the border as it would take away
from their other responsibilities. We have troops in many foreign
countries, defending the borders of South Korea and Macedonia,
for instance. If it's not their duty to defend our border, what
are they there for?" Dr. Lutton demanded.
"Demographics is destiny. To populate is to govern,"
Lutton warned. "There is a sense that when immigration reaches
a certain critical mass in a given community, it is no longer
the melting pot transforming them, but they transforming their
Not on the panel, but also addressing immigration
in his remarks later that afternoon was Atlanta attorney Sam Dickson.
"We face the colonization of our country. It will be turned into
a Brazil," he warned. He predicted "the breaking of the blue collar
worker and the Middle Class." The immigration debate, he charged,
"is being choked off not by Angela Davis but by the phoney conservatives,
the neo-cons, those warmed over liberals. These are the people
who fired the person -- Peter Brimelow -- who wrote the pieces
critical of immigration for National Review."
"The litmus test," Dickson argued, "is where
do the politicians stand on immigration and race. If we lose and
we cease to exist, the new Mexican majority will not preserve
our Confederate flag or our Confederate monuments because our
people will be gone. I'm a true reactionary Tory. We must preserve
our people first and foremost. The most critical thing to preserve
is the genetic basis of our race," Dickson concluded.
