John Tanton Founder of The Anti-Immigration Movement Or Re-Branding Racism For The Mainstream Media

Third Worlders, Lutton told his audience, "have declared demographic war against us. ... Why are their populations exploding? Because ... our people have exported medical technology and we feed them. Had we left them alone, many of them would be going extinct today."

Quote from Wayne Lutton- anti-immigration organizer

"With virtually unlimited funding, Leftist control freaks work nonstop to destroy the American way of life by promoting minority rights and privileges at the expense of ordinary citizens. The enemies of American culture and tradition are also helping swarms of illegal aliens cross the border and bring poverty, crime, and disease into the United States."

Quote from "Conservative Federation Foundation"

Anyway here's a new video about the bigotry, & hatred & Fear Mongering of the Fox News Network which claims to be Fair & Balanced & yet daily attacks President Obama & the Democrats & anyone who is not committed to the radical conservative cause ie Religious Right, Neocons, Social Conservatives , Nativist Xenophobics, homophobics , Islamophobics etc. who see nothing out of place by comparing Obama to Hitler & Stalin tell their audience big fat lies such as that Obama is going to take away their guns & start jailing anyone who disagrees with his policies-

Rightwing Political & Cultural Hatred From FOX, Talk Radio, and Hitler-June 18, 2009

And here's a sort of funny video about anti-immigration true believers who have a tendency to sound like Nativist & White Suremacist:
They also claim bringing balloons & cake to them is a Gestapo Tactic ?

Social Contract Press Loves Bigotry-Jan. 19, 2009

At a recent press conference the Social Contract Press received a cake and balloons congratulating them on their new report which blames immigrants for infrastructure problems in the United States. The Social Contract Press is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and has strong ties to racist white nationalist organizations.

In the next clip spokesperson explains how the Anti-Immigration movement as we know it today was started by John Tanton who created a number of anti-immigration organizations which erroneously claim to be grassroots organization which they are not.What has become troubling is that this extremist ideology as spouted by Tanton & others has moved into the mainstream through the clever use of stealth & propaganda techniques. The personalities representing some of these groups in public sound fairly reasonable but at bottom they are still trying to spread their racist ideology by appearing on Fox News, with Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly & with media personalities such as Lou Dobbs, Joe Scarborough etc.

John Tanton is the person who has created most of the anti-immigration movement . Tanton & other leaders in these groups are attached in one way or another with White Supremacists Organizations & individuals fearful of the "latino onslaught" & hold racist views such as questioning the "educability of Latinos"- what they fear is "the browning of America".

"Council of Conservative Citizens": Wayne Lutton- Immigration bringing disease to the United States bringing crime & undermining American society.

"F.A.I.R.":" Federation For American Immigration Reform" one of the more persistent voices of anti-immigration in the U.S. media others include "Numbers USA" (Roy Beck), "Center For Immigration Studies" : a Faux Think Tank which puts out dubious studies which are questionable in their scientific analysis- they exaggerate , slant their findings to match their own biases & agenda
Tanton's U.S. Inc. & Social Contract Press & leaders Roy Beck & Joe Turner & Wayne Lutton connected to white separatist & white supremacists organizations.

Behind The Veil: America's Anti-Immigration Network -John Tanton

A new video that details the common origins of many of the country's leading anti-immigration groups and their ties to White supremacists.

And here's an article by the Southern Poverty Law Center on John Tanton.

" The Puppeteer "The organized anti-immigration 'movement,' increasingly in bed with racist hate groups, is dominated by one man, John Tanton. Intelligence Report Southern Poverty Law Center, 2002

Before he even said a word, U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) got a standing ovation from the 27 anti-immigration activists who gathered at the Cannon House Office Building in Washington, D.C., on the morning of Feb. 13 to kick off a two-day lobbying effort on Capitol Hill.

Tancredo, chairman of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus, proceeded to regale his audience with ominous warnings of a global plot to destroy the United States.

Many countries are pushing immigration in order to erode American sovereignty, Tancredo warned: "China is trying to export people. It's a policy for them, a way of extending their hegemony. It's a government-sponsored thing."

After Tancredo's 10-minute pep talk, Brian Bilbray, a former Republican congressman from San Diego, Calif., weighed in with horror stories about an impending social catastrophe due to immigration.

"We are creating a slave class that criminal elements breed in," said Bilbray, who complained bitterly — and improbably — that he lost his 2000 re-election bid because "illegal aliens" had voted against him.

But all was not doom and gloom, according to Bilbray.

Praising the post-9/11 sweeps of Arab communities by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) that resulted in the indefinite detention of more than a thousand people, Bilbray called for the INS to carry out an enlarged dragnet. "We could have a terrorist coming in on a Latin name," he said.

The meeting with Tancredo and Bilbray — and the entire lobbying operation in mid-February — was masterminded by NumbersUSA, an anti-immigration group that had recently opened a "government relations office" in a three-story, red-brick Victorian near the Capitol.

NumbersUSA hosted an afternoon open house at its plush new digs, where the lobbyists relaxed, nibbled on catered food, and conversed with the leaders and other officials of key anti-immigration organizations.

It would be better, Beck counseled, if their attempts to lobby legislators that week did not appear to be orchestrated by NumbersUSA. For their campaign to be effective, he said, it "needs to look like a grassroots effort."

Grassroots — or AstroTurf?
To be sure, this was no grassroots effort. Nor is NumbersUSA, in any sense of the word, a grassroots organization.

Despite attempts to appear otherwise, it is a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S. Inc., a sprawling, nonprofit funding conduit that has spawned three anti-immigration groups and underwrites several others, many of which were represented at the NumbersUSA conclave.

What's more, this interlocking network of supposedly independent organizations is almost entirely the handiwork of one man, a Michigan ophthalmologist named John H. Tanton.

In fact, the vast majority of American anti-immigration groups — more than a dozen in all — were either formed, led, or in other ways made possible through Tanton's efforts.

The principal funding arm of the movement, U.S. Inc., is a Tanton creation, and millions of dollars in financing comes from just a few of his allies, far-right foundations like those controlled by the family of Richard Mellon Scaife

and on Wayne Lutton John Tanton's partner in crime as it were:

"40 to Watch" from Intelligence Report from Southern Poverty Law Center 2003 "Aliens, AIDS and White Supremacy" Wayne C. Lutton, 54 | PETOSKEY, Mich.

Wayne Lutton doesn't like immigrants. Since earning a Ph.D. in modern history at Southern Illinois University in 1983, he has written countless articles, monographs and books about the evils of immigration, specifically non-white immigration.

In the early 1980s, Lutton worked at far-right Summit Ministries in Manitou, Colo., which produces a vast array of materials attacking homosexuality, secular humanism and any number of other things seen to be destroying American society.

While there, Lutton authored AIDS, a gay-bashing book, with Summit president David Noebel and Paul Cameron. The book proposes to "suppress" homosexuality by making gay sex illegal; prohibiting gays from having custody of children, including their own; "quarantining" HIV-positive gays who engage in sex; and denying all AIDS patients admittance to regular hospitals. It also suggests that it may be necessary to "exile" all active homosexuals from America.

In 1985, Lutton co-authored another book, this one denouncing immigrants, The Immigration Time Bomb. Featuring lurid chapter headings like "The Alien Crime Wave," "The Alien Health Threat" and "Aliens Raid the Welfare System," the book was published by the American Immigration Control Foundation, which distributes racist videotapes attacking Hispanic immigrants in sensational terms. The book also offers up special thanks to Sam Francis (see 'The Stupid Party'), a key white nationalist ideologue.

In the early 1990s, Lutton went to work for John Tanton, a Michigan opthalmologist who built much of the modern anti-immigration movement and with whom he shares an office to this day. Lutton edits The Social Contract, a journal that is published by U.S. Inc., the anti-immigration umbrella group created and chaired by Tanton, and has published a number of prominent white supremacists. In 1994, Lutton and Tanton co-authored The Immigration Invasion, another lurid attack on immigrants.

By 1996, Lutton was addressing the annual conference of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a group that today regularly attacks black people and gays in the crudest terms. Third Worlders, Lutton told his audience, "have declared demographic war against us. ... Why are their populations exploding? Because ... our people have exported medical technology and we feed them. Had we left them alone, many of them would be going extinct today."

and on the "Council of Conservative Citizens" which has its roots in the pro-segregation movement of the 1950's & 1960's:

"Council of Conservative Citizens" Sept. 2004 at Right Web

Among its main concerns are affirmative action, non-white immigration, and official recognition of the Confederate flag.

The council publishes the Citizens Informer monthly newspaper, which is mainly an outlet for white supremacist views. According to the council, it is the "true voice of the American Right."

Closely associated with CCC is the Conservative Citizens Foundation, which has the same address and leadership as CCC. The foundation was established "to combat Leftist propaganda and disinformation on an intellectual level." It is the trustee of a project to preserve Confederate monuments and statues. According to the foundation, "With virtually unlimited funding, Leftist control freaks work nonstop to destroy the American way of life by promoting minority rights and privileges at the expense of ordinary citizens. The enemies of American culture and tradition are also helping swarms of illegal aliens cross the border and bring poverty, crime, and disease into the United States."

The Council of Conservative Citizens was founded in the mid-1990s as an outgrowth of the Citizens Councils of America. The Citizens Councils emerged in the mid-1950s as part of a white segregationist response to federally mandated integration of public facilities, especially following the 1954 Supreme Court ruling against separate-but-equal schools. This backlash movement, primarily based in the South, brought together whites of all classes and backgrounds. The prominence of the Citizens Councils resulted from the incorporation of prominent local and state politicians in the state councils. Like the Citizens Council, the CCC constantly rails against communists and nonwhites. The anti-Semitism associated with the predecessor councils remains an underlying current in the CCC. Gordon Lee Baum, the founding and current chief executive officer, was formerly a field director for the Citizens Councils of America. Other former leaders of the Citizens Councils that cofounded CCC were Robert Patterson and Bill Lord. According to Patterson, "Western civilization with all its might and glory would never have achieved its greatness without the directing hand of God and the creative genius of the white race."


It is argued that the radical & racist anti-Immigration movement is setting the tone & agenda of the so-called immigration debate over illegal aliens. The author Tom Barry points out how the Neoconservatives & traditional conservative & social conservatives are also jumping on the anti-immigration bandwagon which had been til recently a cause for the far right made up of Nativist & White Supremacists.But now it has gone mainstream .

"The Expanding Anti-Immigration Bandwagon" Tom Barry, IRC | Posted: August 11, 2006

... it's the anti-immigration camp that has seized control of the ideological and political debate. Out front in defining immigration as a national security threat is Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the neoconservative Center for Security Policy. After 9/11, immigration restrictionists quickly tweaked their anti-immigration message as a pro-security position. Going a step further, Gaffney, who signed the July 19 conservative statement backing an enforcement-first immigration policy, says stopping immigration flows and deporting unauthorized immigrants are among the "10 steps America must take to prevail in the war for the Free World."

"Free World" bombast is nothing new, but its application to the immigration debate is a recent twist. In his new book War Footing, Gaffney and his coauthors tap predictable Cold War language about Washington's role in saving the so-called free world from the so-called Islamofascists in order to bolster the case of the immigration restrictionists. Gaffney argues that immigration policy should be regarded as part of a world war to protect U.S. national security and freedoms. The southern border is a warfront threatened, according to Gaffney, by the rise of the center-left in Latin America. This conflict, he says, the United States is losing.

Reminiscent of the Cold Warriors' warnings about the rising "red tide" in Latin America, Gaffney argues that the United States should be on guard against the left gaining ground there. Arguing for an immigration policy that is on a "war footing," Gaffney warned in a Washington Times op-ed that the "implications of such an outcome could be far-reaching for the integrity of our southern frontier, illegal immigration, drug-trafficking, terrorism, trade, and the radical 'reconquista' movement (which is intent on 'taking back' at least parts of the United States for Mexico)."

(and Neocons have been jumping on the anti-immigration bandwagon:)

The July 19 "enforcement-first" letter to Bush from prominent conservatives illustrates the increasingly broad reach of the anti-immigration movement and the large extent to which it integrates immigration policy with the "global war on terror." It also highlights the degree to which neoconservatives, who have traditionally been solidly pro-immigration, are joining the restrictionist coalition. Neoconservatives signing the letter included William Bennett, Peter Collier, David Frum, David Horowitz, Michael Ledeen, and Daniel Pipes.

Racist & anti-Islamic Dutch extremist Geert Wilders was welcomed with open arms by conservatives & the Far Right & the U.S. Senate so how prevalent is this sort of racism in America:

"Dutch Foe of Islam Goes to Washington" By Daniel Luban and Eli Clifton at Right Web, March 08, 2009
(Inter Press Service)

The fiercely anti-Islam Dutch MP Geert Wilders traveled through the United States recently on a highly publicized trip to meet with politicians, promote his controversial film Fitna, and raise money for his legal defense back home.

Although Wilders’ stated goal was to campaign for free speech, his trip was sponsored and promoted by an unlikely coalition of groups united primarily by hostility towards Islam. His backers included neoconservatives and a right-wing Jewish group on the one hand and figures with ties to the European far Right on the other.

Since he was charged with incitement to hate and discrimination in the Netherlands this January and subsequently denied entry to Britain in early February on public safety grounds, Wilders has become something of a cause celebre for the U.S. Right.

Last week, he gave a private viewing of his 17-minute anti-Islam film to the U.S. Senate, where he was hosted by Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ). He also appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s and Glenn Beck’s popular right-wing TV shows, met privately with the Wall Street Journal editorial board, and hobnobbed with former U.N. ambassador John Bolton at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
