Ski club sides with ‘f*cking racist pussy’ white supremacist over neocon in personal dispute

Published

on

Residents packed a City Council meeting to protest a white supremacist group headquartered in the Montana resort town.

“The idea of hate and discrimination has no place in Whitefish, and I hope you can figure out a way to say, ‘We will not accept it in our town,’” said Ina Albert, founder of the group Love Lives Here.

The white supremacist “think tank,” the National Policy Institute, is based in the town where its director, Richard Spencer, lives.

A private ski club in the town recently sided with Spencer in a personal dispute with another member, Randy Scheunemann, a neoconservative foreign policy expert, former lobbyist for the Georgian government, and former advisor to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).

The pair got into an argument during a chance encounter on a ski lift and then resumed the dispute during a Christmas party at the Big Mountain Club.

Spencer berated Scheunemann after learning he worked in Washington “for being a neocon and for believing in this whole democracy BS.”

Scheunemann – who called the 36-year-old Spencer a “f*cking racist pussy” in front of other members at the holiday event — told the club it must choose between him and the white nationalist.

The club chose to keep Spencer as a member and expelled Scheunemann – several weeks after the white nationalist was arrested and expelled from Hungary, where he was organizing an international congress of white supremacists.

The club has declined requests for comment on the matter.

National Policy Institute founder William Regnery II, an heir to the right-wing publishing company, was turned away in September at the Hungarian border, and Spencer was arrested in early October for failing to carry his passport as he attempted to sneak into Budapest via Austria.

White supremacist Jared Taylor took over as organizer of the event, which was held as a private dinner for fewer than 100 attendees — about half the number registered to attend.

Spencer, an avid Depeche Mode fan and former editor of Pat Buchanan’s American Conservative magazine, announced last year during a white supremacists conference that he had a dream, in a twisted echo of Martin Luther King’s speech.

He called for the creation of a “white homeland” that would be accomplished through some type of unspecified “peaceful ethnic cleansing.”

Rachel Maddow drew attention to the white nationalist National Policy Institute and its ties to the mainstream anti-immigration Heritage Foundation last year during a segment on her MSNBC program.

Maddow reported that Jason Richwine, the co-author of a controversial Heritage Foundation report criticizing a U.S. Senate immigration reform bill, had written a research study that found recent Hispanic immigrants had a “real cognitive deficit” compared to U.S.-born whites.

Richwine, who eventually resigned from the conservative think tank over his previous research, also had written for AlternativeRight.com, a web forum operated by Spencer and the white supremacist think tank he oversees.

The East Texas town has long had a reputation for racism.

Vidor is a small city of about 11,000 people near the Texas Gulf Coast, not too far from the Louisiana border. Despite the fact that Beaumont, a much bigger city just 10 minutes away, is quite integrated, Vidor is not. There are very few blacks there; it's mostly white. That is in large part because of a history of racism in Vidor, a past that continues to haunt the present," Keith Oppenheim reported for CNN in 2006.

Published

Video of a chainsaw-wielding Texas man threatening protesters while shouting the n-word went viral on Friday.

While many people were shocked by the video, one of President Donald Trump's top advisors supported the racism and vigilantism in documented in the video, according to a new report.

"President Donald Trump and his allies for years have amplified racist messages on Twitter while simultaneously reaching out to black and Hispanic voters, a dissonant balancing act that’s now rocking the GOP amid nationwide racial-justice protests," Politico reported Saturday. "The two competing forces collided Saturday on the Twitter feed of Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp, when she boosted a tweet that lauded a man in Texas in a viral video as he yelled the n-word and wielded a chainsaw to chase away anti-racism demonstrators."

Trump may ‘fatally wound’ his reelection by snubbing North Carolina: CNN analyst

Published

President Donald Trump risks alienating voters in the key swing state of North Carolina if he moves his RNC convention speech to another state, political analyst James C. Moore explained for CNN.

"Of all the institutions the Trump presidency is harming, it's likely no one suspected the Republican National Convention might be one of them. But President Donald Trump's refusal to fully acknowledge the risks associated with the pandemic is creating a new political threat to his own candidacy," he wrote. "The Republican National Convention was slated to take place in Charlotte, North Carolina, in August. But the pandemic struck, and the governor has insisted on a scaled down event with safety precautions that include social distancing and face masks. The President, who wants his huddled masses shoulder to shoulder as they shout their acclimations, is now looking to deliver his convention speech in another city."
