It’s taken ten years, but the neo-Nazis have finally discovered this website. It would seem they didn’t like something that I’d written a few days ago exposing the background of a white supremacist by the name of Daniel Johnson, who is running to represent Michigan’s 11th district in Congress. And they’ve been leaving comments all evening, both on my site, and that of Stormfront.org. (You can read all of their comments by clicking on that first link.)
One Stormfront commenter went so far as to say that, as a race traitor, I was the same as “a child molester” and deserved “all the same recrimination.” Another encouraged fellow white nationalists to vote for the Republican candidate in the race, and not Johnson, who is running as a member of the Natural Law Party. “I know he’s probably a great guy,” this individual said of Johnson, “but please don’t vote for him. The Republican candidate, Kerry Bentivolio, is one of the best major candidates running for national office this year. We can’t let Syed Taj win. And, no, I’m not being like one of those morons who says ‘any vote for a 3rd party is a vote for Obama’. In the Presidential race, by voting Republican or Democrat you’re voting for ZOG. By voting for Kerry Bentivolio, you’re voting against ZOG.” ZOG, for those of you who aren’t up on your conspiracy theories, is shorthand in white power circles for the Zionist Occupation Government, which, according to the far right, has been seeking to control the entire earth since before Henry Ford first started publishing The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Bentivolio, you might be interested to know, has been described in the press as “a reindeer rancher some party officials have labeled as an extremist.” And, when they say “party,” they don’t mean the Democratic party. They mean the Republican party. (Yes, Republicans consider him to be an extremist.) Bentivolio is an acolyte of Ron Paul, who’s campaign is being funded to a large extent by Liberty for All, a Texas-based organization with ties to Paul. I haven’t seen polling data, but, according to today’s Detroit Free Press, he’s favored to win the heavily Republican district, which, until recently, had been thought to be an easy win for Thaddeus McCotter. McCotter, though, as you may remember, was recently forced to drop out of the race, after it was discovered that a majority of the signatures submitted with his nominating petition had been forged. Bentivolio, who had sought to challenge McCotter in the primary, it would seem, was simply in the right place at the right time, when McCotter was forced out. The Republican establishment tried desperately to field a more palatable candidate at the last minute to go up against him, but couldn’t. (Bentivolio, before turning to politics, was a teacher at Fowlerville High School, a job which he was apparently forced to leave after an investigation involving his repeated intimidation of students.)
By my count, there have been eight comments left on this site so far by white nationalists, and I’d like to ask you to join me in contributing a dollar for each one of them to the campaign of Syed Taj, the man running against Bentivolio and Johnson. Actually, if you could, I’d like to ask for you to give a dollar for every comment left over the 24 hour period ending tomorrow at 8:00 PM, which is what I intend to do. Can I count on you to do that? As I think I made pretty clear at the top of the post, it’s imperative that Taj win this race, and I think that we could really make a big impact, not only by directing a few dollars to Taj’s campaign, but by reaching out to our friends and neighbors in Plymouth, Canton, Livonia, Westland, Novi, Milford, South Lyon, and Wayne, and letting them know about Bentivolio, Johnson and the men, like those who gather at Stormfront.org, who support them.
You can make donations to Taj either through his site (see link above), or through Act Blue.
And please share this post by way of Facebook. As the election is only a month away, we haven’t much time to get the word out.
update: OK, the number of white nationalist comments has doubled since I started writing this post. As of midnight, there are 15 comments from the members of Stromfront.
