White Supremacist Love Connection
White Supremacist Love Connection
If you're looking for a life partner and are too busy to get enmeshed in the dating scene, hope is on the way: There are myriad dating services that promise to find you the perfect mate. Some arrange lunchtime meetings for over-scheduled workers; others offer a round-robin approach where you can spend a few minutes with a bunch of different prospects during one evening. There are online dating services, video dating services, and services aimed at hooking you up with an ethnic, religious or political counterpart.
AmericanSingles.com claims it will "jump start your love life"; eHarmony pledges to be there for you "when you're ready to find the love of your life"; PerfectMatch.com claims it is "the Internet's fastest growing relationship site"; Yahoo! personals allows you to "discover great singles near you"; Great Expectations maintains that since 1976 it has been "the nation's premiere destination for meeting and dating quality singles."
If you're a white supremacist, however, none of these services may be right for you. So, if you're having trouble making a love connection and you're uncomfortable at KKK rallies, haven't made your way to a Council of Conservative Citizens confab, or aren't interested in re-locating to a compound in Idaho, William Regnery's new whites-only dating service might be right up your alley. Regnery, one of the lesser-known members of the right wing publishing family, is currently searching for seed money to launch a service that promises to hook clients up with their very own special white supremacist love connection.
William Regnery, described as "famously reclusive" by the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Report, knows from white supremacy: He is the publisher of The Occidental Quarterly, a publication described recently by Newsweek as "espous[ing] white nationalism" and "whose statement of principles calls for limiting immigration to 'selected people of European ancestry.'"
In a letter to subscribers, Regnery expressed his concern about the decreasing percentage of white people in the population and announced plans for a new dating service that he claims will address the problem. Internet-based and earmarked only for whites, Regnery's service aims to increase the white population in the United States through marriage and procreation.
Regnery's letter, titled "Population is Destiny" was an appeal to potential investors. The dating service, he said, will be only the "first arrow in a business quiver" providing "services and products to whites."
According to the Intelligence Report, Regnery pointed out that in addition to its money-making potential, the Caucasian-only dating service would be an opportunity to ensure "the survival of our race," which "depends upon our people marrying, reproducing and parenting."
Fears of being overwhelmed by people of color are not unusual, Mark Potok of the SPLC told Newsweek. They feed the "common paranoid fantasy" of white separatists, he said.
Regnery and his family have long been involved in "promoting white nationalism," the Intelligence Report pointed out. "His grandfather, William I, signed incorporation papers for the America First Committee, an organization that opposed fighting Nazi Germany in World War II." It was his father, Henry, who created Regnery Publishing, which during the Clinton-era became a "major purveyor of books by right-wing attack dogs like Anne Coulter and G. Gordon Liddy."
"William II has made his mark as a major fundraiser in radical right circles as the founder of the Charles Martel Society in 2001," the Intelligence Report noted. The society publishes The Occidental Quarterly: A Journal of Western Thought and Opinion, "an academic-looking journal filled with articles by white-supremacist luminaries such as Sam Francis, editor for the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens and Wayne Lutton of the hate group The Social Contract Press."
A September 2003 posting at the Stormfront.org forum by TominTX, a "Friend of Stormfront" and a "sustaining member," pointed out that the Charles Martel Society is a non-profit 501(C)(3) group. TominTX advised the white nationalist community that "it would be wise to split our donations for educational purposes into tax-deductible entities -- this maximizes the donation we can make and directly defunds ZOG [the Zionist Occupied (or Occupation) Government]."
The Charles Martel Society also organizes conferences, summer schools and has a speaker's bureau -- "all designed to push Regnery's view that the white race is veering toward extinction," the Intelligence Report stated.
According to the Quarterly's web site, the Society is currently seeking funding several groundbreaking research projects: Taxing the White Family Out of Existence, a study to determine whether an over-bearing tax burden has forced white wives into the workplace thereby slowing the white birth rate; The Cost of Good Intentions, researching whether too much government money has gone to fostering minority-based programs at the expense of the white middle class; and Abjuring the Realm or How to Mitigate a Toxic Culture -- as life in the United States "become[s] increasingly nasty, brutish and even short for whites," the Quarterly proposes publishing "a primer to help people better contend with the myriad problems of earning a livelihood, finding a support group, filtering out the worst elements of the toxic surroundings, raising and educating children."
Regnery Publishing is a subsidiary of the Washington, D.C.-based Eagle Publishing (part of Phillips Publishing, and the publisher of the notorious right wing weekly, Human Events). Not too long ago Regnery was just another publisher with nothing particularly distinguishable about the company: Then along came the presidency of William Jefferson Clinton.
In Gatlin gun-like succession a series of anti-Clinton titles blasted their way onto best seller lists across the country: Titles such as Betrayal: How the Clinton Administration Undermined American Security (Bill Gertz, 1999); Hell to Pay: The Unfolding Story of Hillary Rodham Clinton (Barbara Olson, 2000); High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton (Ann Coulter, 1998); Sellout: The Inside Story of President Clinton's Impeachment" (David Schippers, 2000); and Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House, (Gary Aldrich, 1996), helped place Regnery on the map. (For a more complete list of Regnery-published see the posting by DeepModemMom at DemocraticUnderground.com.)
Regnery's recent book, Unfit for Command by John E. O'Neill and Jerome R. Corsi, is a scathing attack on John Kerry's war record and has shaken up the presidential race during the past few weeks. There's no doubt that O'Neill -- a longtime GOP operative and Kerry-hater -- and Harvard's Corsi -- who according to Capital Hill Blue is an "anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic homophobe who carpets bombs conservative bulletin boards with hate-filled screeds calling Kerry 'John Fucking Commie Kerry' and Senator Hillary Clinton 'the fat hog'" -- have made their own love connection.
William Regnery must be proud!
