Jared Taylor, the leader of the Council of Conservative Citizens, really the White Citizens Council, who the Jewish Defense Organization was after for years, inspired Dylann Storm Roof to commit mass murder yet you don't see the Blacks trying to burn down his home, 2705 Green Holly Springs Ct Oakton, VA 22124 like they burned Baltimore. This is what the moron, who set back his own cause, wrote:
The event that truly awakened me was the Trayvon Martin case. I kept hearing and seeing his name, and eventually I decided to look him up. I read the Wikipedia article and right away I was unable to understand what the big deal was. It was obvious that Zimmerman was in the right. But more importantly this prompted me to type in the words “black on White crime” into Google, and I have never been the same since that day. The first website I came to was the Council of Conservative Citizens. There were pages upon pages of these brutal black on White murders. I was in disbelief. At this moment I realized that something was very wrong. How could the news be blowing up the Trayvon Martin case while hundreds of these black on White murders got ignored?
Jared Taylor had this to say about the AME event:
Spokesman for Council of Conservative Citizens Available to Speak to Media about Dylann Roof and Charleston church killings. In a manifesto widely attributed to Dylann Roof, he cites the Council of Conservative Citizens ( C of CC) as the organization that first drew his attention to black-on-white crime. C of CC spokesman, Jared Taylor, welcomes media inquiries about the council’s positions and how they relate to Dylann Roof. The C of CC unequivocally condemns Roof’s murderous actions. However, the council stands unshakably behind the facts on its website, and points out the dangers of denying the extent of black-on-white crime. Every year, there are about 500,000 violent, interracial crimes. Of these, about 85 percent are committed by blacks against whites.
For the past 3 years the JDO determined it was fruitless to try to stop Taylor from holding his AMREM conference as the year before the Black community didn't show up and the Montgomery Bell State Park authorities refused to bar the Shockleyites from the park. Jared Taylor reported:
The 13th American Renaissance conference–the fourth at Montgomery Bell State Park in Tennessee–was held over a brilliant spring weekend and reflected the growing energy and momentum of our movement. There was record attendance, while the lifeless efforts of a small band of protesters only underlined their impotence in the face of our determination. It was a weekend of camaraderie–old friendships renewed and new ones established–built around a series of informative and inspiring speeches.
A handful of protestors picketed the annual American Renaissance conference Friday afternoon at the Montgomery Bell State Park inn and conference center. American Renaissance, aka AmRen, is known for advocating white separatism and supremacist policies, but labels its views as “race realism.” The organization produces a magazine and a website, which states there are genetic and biological differences between whites and non-whites. AmRen takes particular issue with cultural diversity. Montgomery Bell State Park is hosting AmRen’s annual conference this weekend for a second consecutive year. Four protestors with the Coalition to Shut Down AmRen, and two picketers with the Anti-Nazi Klan Coalition chanted against AmRen’s views Friday afternoon outside the park inn. They also displayed placards remonstrating fascism and racism. “AmRen, Amren. Rich and rude. We don’t like your attitude,” shouted Coalition to Shut Down AmRen protestors. Park rangers stood vigil in front of the inn to keep the peace. The rangers warned a young demonstrator not to use profanity after he flipped off a man taking his photograph. Nathaniel Berman, a Jewish cantor at a Nashville temple, and his spouse represented the Anti-Nazi Klan Coalition. “We don’t want your white supremacist trash in our state,” Berman exclaimed over a bullhorn.
Two groups with opposing views are ready to square off this weekend in Dickson County. Virginia-based American Renaissance, which also goes by AmRen and labels its views as “race realism,” will kick off its conference at Montgomery Bell State Park today while protesters prepare to hold a conference of their own. It is the second year in a row AmRen has held its conference at the park. Dorsey Malina, a spokeswoman for protest group Not in Our State, said she couldn’t believe it. “We realize they have as much right to free speech as anyone else,” she said, adding that camouflaging hate speech as free speech is wrong. Not in Our State plans a “counter conference” featuring 18 speakers at the park today. Topics include “Hybrid Vigor: Biochemically Deconstructing the Notion of Racial Purity,” “Race, Class and Power” and “Connecting the ‘Isms’: How Racism, Sexism, Heterosexism & Speciesism Intersect.” AmRen’s conference will run through Sunday. Topics include “Facing the Future As a Minority” and “Off-shoring, Mass Immigration and American Wage Stagnation: Why Education is No Solution.” The Southern Poverty Law Center calls American Renaissance a hate group with a white nationalist ideology. It calls the group “a self-styled think tank that promotes pseudo-scientific studies and research that purport to show the inferiority of blacks to whites — although in hifalutin language that avoids open racial slurs and attempts to portray itself as serious scholarship.” Jared Taylor, founder of AmRen, disagrees with the label: “We’d prefer to live in a nation with a majority of people like ourselves. It doesn’t mean we hate anybody else, it means that that’s our preference.”

I am sure you had an opportunity this weekend to read about the White Supremacist, Neo-Nazi, KKK AM REN convention held at Montgomery Bell State Park. I had worked for months with the NAACP, Churches , Jewish Organizations and universities, to protest Jared Taylor and AM REN. This group is listed as a Militant Hate Group in numerous States in the United States. This is the 2nd year that Montgomery Bell State Park has hosted them for their annual Hate Conference. Our organization, applied and received permits for a protest rally which we held this past weekend. I am completely aware of the rights of groups to speak their peace under the 1st ammendment, and legally, there is nothing that Montgomery Bell could have done to cancel this conference. I spent many hours speaking with Max Fleischer, the Tennessee State Attorney regarding our options to have this conference cancelled, and had our attorneys in New York looking at the lawful ways to stop this conference from happening. In the past, our organization has stopped Taylor and AM REN in numerous states due to the fact that he was using hotels, so he decided to come to Tennessee, using a State facility, and one which DOES NOT REQUIRE a security insurance bond. ( Fleischer has emailed me and told me that Tennessee is one of the few states that does not require a bond ). Being a HATE GROUP and a MILLITANT GROUP, in a State Facility, is unacceptable and presents a clear and present danger to public health and safety. This could cause damage to the facility, which at the present time has no insurance bond paid for by AM REN. I am asking you to please consider a law requiring HATE GROUPS, MILLITANT GROUPS & TERROR GROUPS to purchase a security insurance bond when renting a State Facility here in Tennessee. Many colleges and universities require bonds when groups rent their facilities. By doing so, AM REN will have to cough up over $20,000. for a 1 million dollar security bond the next time they come here. That will STOP THEM in their tracks as they do not have that kind of funds. I am listing 2 links regarding this past weekend at Montgomery Bell, as well as our Press Release giving you information on AM REN. There were young children there this weekend with their parents for a nice weekend in the park asking their parents what are Nazis KKK etc.....not a very good welcome to a Tennessee State Park. I hope you consider our thoughts in this matter, or possibly other alternatives that can be legislated to stop AM REN and other groups of hate such as them, in coming to our State.
All, Regarding the live web-stream, we’ve run into serious difficulties beyond our control. We’ve decided not to go into details at this time, but you can use your imagination… It has become impossible to web-stream. We are, however, able to film the conference in HD, and we are going to make the videos available to everyone online shortly. I speak for everyone involved with NPItv when I say that it pains us not to deliver what we promised — namely, a live web-stream on the two days of the event and a available download shortly thereafter. We hope that we can make it up to everyone who paid for the web-stream — i.e. everyone who purchased the conference before the publishing of this message at 2:30 PM (EST) on Saturday, Feb. 5 — by sending them free DVDs of the conference, on top of the download. We will also offer them gift certificates granting 20 percent off books in the Washington Summit Publishers library.To all those expecting the live web-stream, please accept NPItv’s sincerest apology. We are dedicated to offering live web-streams. This terrible experience has taught us how to avoid such difficulties in the future. Sincerely yours, Richard Spencer [Head Maggot]
Dear Conference Registrant,
I am very sorry to inform you that the AR conference scheduled for February 4 through 6 must be canceled. Despite strong assurances that it would not submit to pressure, the hotel with which we had initially contracted has broken its contract with us. We have investigated many possible alternative venues but have not been able to find one. There is evidence that at least one elected Charlotte official was working behind the scenes to deny us a venue, and our legal counsel is looking into grounds for action against the city. We are deeply sorry for the great inconvenience this causes you, and I apologize to you personally. As the head of the publication that organized this conference, the fault is entirely mine. At your instruction we will, of course, refund all registrations and banquet fees. Many of you will have bought non-refundable air tickets. Generally, the amount spent on such tickets can, for a period of a year, be used to buy a different ticket on the same airline. However, most airlines then deduct $150 from the amount that can be spent to buy the new ticket. If you bought a non-refundable ticket, please send us proof of purchase and we will send you a check for $150. We do not want anyone to suffer financial loss because of this cancellation. We have heard that because of the impending storms, some airlines are offering full refunds on “non-refundable” tickets. This offer may not apply to tickets for February 4, but it may be worth inquiring. We are considering alternative models for future American Renaissance conferences. Again, please accept my sincerest apologies. We greatly value your continuing support, and deeply regret that we will not be seeing you on February 4. Warm regards, Jared Taylor
Charlotte City Councilman Warren Turner, Charlotte City Councilman Patrick Cannon and the NAACP plus other anti-racist groups have had the meeting of the American Renaissance Party cancelled. Councilman Turner sent out an email to all of the hotels in Charlotte informing them to alert the police if AmRen booked space with them. Councilman Cannon also advised these hotels to be in compliance with the law. When the Airport Sheraton Hotel checked its convention bookings it found that AmRen had booked under a different name for the dates in question. The Sheraton returned the deposit that the Shockleyite scum had put down to reserve the meeting room where the Nazi meeting was to be held. JDO is warning other hotels in the area to be on the lookout for anyone who tries to book for the same dates. JDO believes preaching racial inferiority can lead to lynchings, cross burnings and murder and mayhem. JDO knows that the neo-Nazis will be demoralized when they find out this convention, like the Virginia and DC conventions were cancelled last February. The Stormfront Nazis and David Duke show up at these events because they believe these so-called intellectuals give their views legitimacy. Who are these morons to determine who is intelligent and who is not? One day one group can be on top the next day untermenchen. This group used to have Jewish members but they walked out when David Duke pranced into the AmRen meeting. It is a slippery slope for any Jew to embrace racism.
The JDO has been made aware that a collection of Jew-Hating and racist neo-Nazi & KKK are trying to hold a meeting in a hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina. This collection of neo-Nazis and KKK and neo-Nazi skinheads who hate Jews, Blacks, Latinos, Asians, all minorities tried holding a meeting in Virginia and D.C. last year at a hotel and JDO got it cancelled. NOW JDO HAS JUST ANNOUNCED THAT JDO WILL LAUNCH A BOYCOTT AGAINST ANY HOTEL THAT ALLOWS THESE NEO-NAZI & KKK MISFITS CALLED AMERICAN RENAISSANCE RUN JARED TAYLOR TO HOLD A MEETING! WE NEED EVERY ANGRY JEW TO CALL EVERY HOTEL AND MOTEL IN CHARLOTTE NORTH CAROLINA AND LET THEM KNOW HOW SERIOUS JDO IS! You can look up all hotels in Charlotte call them all ask for the catering meeting department and let them know! The Hilton Hotel and the Dunn hotel have banned AmRem.
According to a document from the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center (ACTIC) whose existence was confirmed by David Denlinger, a commander of ACTIC the document in question (first attributed to DHS) “contained errors and overstated the link” between mass murderer Jared Loughner and American Renaissance but none-the-less linked him to to this racist group.
The news articles and tv have reported heavily in the Washington and Virginia area that JDO is launching a boycott against a local hotel the Crowne Plaza Dulles located in Herndon Virginia for daring to rent for a neo-nazi convention. It is true that JDO has launched and is continuing this important boycott and the effect is more than just local but national on various hotels across the US that have been asked by assorted Neo-Nazi and KKK misfits to rent for Jew-Hating and racist hate fests of the future, will think a million times over if they hear or read that not only were there angry demonstrations at this local Crowne Plaza run by a not well despicable sleaze for rent named David Welliver but the Jews and others angry as well brought that Hotel to its knees with the additional weapon of boycott, meaning getting all potential customers to cancel ever using that hotel in the future.First, no greater justice can be done to the owners and management of the Crowne Plaza
Dulles than financially wrecking them ! This means effort and letting everyone also know the owners and managers names like Tony Rocks the real owner of the hotel who owns a construction company Allen & Rocks. This campaign is specifically aimed at Crowne Plaza Dullles, and its "rent to the Nazis" manager David Welliver, who with glee and arrogance rented knowingly and eagerly to a band of neo-nazis that has hosted Nazi KKK pig David Duke speak about the "evil Jews" at its conventions. The neo-nazi that runs this group is one Jared Taylor. When JDO launched its campaign 8 weeks ago thousands called, and cabled Welliver to cancel this upcoming neo-nazi convention. Well, he allowed the neo-nazis in anyway. The only conscience someone like Welliver and Crowne Plaza Dulles has are its pockets, and if we financially wreck the hotel through a serious boycott every hotel will remember what JDO did to Welliver and his once proud hotel punished and brought to financial ruin by reaching out and getting every possible customer to cancel any parties planned there.

Hotel rebuffs JDO efforts Manager: We're not defined by our customersWednesday, December 26, 2007
by Debra Rubin Editor
As the Jewish Defense Organization steps ups its efforts to force a Herndon hotel to cancel a February convention for an organization that has been described as a white supremacist hate group, the hotel manager says he has no intention of complying, noting that his facility is not associated with its customers' messages and he's "just trying to pay the rent."
The JDO earlier this month initiated a campaign urging individuals to contact the Crowne Plaza Dulles Airport Hotel in an effort to force the hotel to renege on its rental contract with American Renaissance, a Web site and magazine that describes itself as promoting "racial-realist" thought.
Last week, the JDO added the hotel's management company, Coakley & Williams in Greenbelt, to its contact list, along with a building contractor it claims owns the hotel. WJW could not confirm ownership, but hotel manager David Welliver said a number of investors are involved.
The JDO ‹ a self-described militant group ‹ also is calling for a boycott of the hotel if the meeting takes place.
American Renaissance is published by the New Century Foundation, directed by Jared Taylor and described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a white supremacist hate group "dressed up in the prose and appearance of academia," according to Mark Potok, who directs the center's intelligence project.
The Anti-Defamation League describes American Renaissance as "promoting pseudoscientific and questionably researched and argued studies to validate the superiority of whites."
Taylor once wrote in his publication: "Blacks and white are different. When blacks are left entirely to their own devices, Western Civilization ‹ any civilization ‹ disappears."
The JDO is an offshoot of the Jewish Defense League, which the Montgomery, Ala.-based SPLC had also characterized as a hate group.
The Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington has provided Welliver with information about American Renaissance, according to Ron Halber, JCRC executive director, who said "we wanted to let him know the distasteful people who are going to use the facility."
He said any further JCRC action is under discussion, but the agency would not call for the hotel to breach its contract.
Welliver said he has received several calls urging him to cancel the February event as well as calls praising him for not doing so. In an interview last week, Welliver said that some of the opposition calls have been "violent" and do not help the protesters' cause. Taylor, meanwhile, "has been nothing but decent," he added.
"I care that there are so many people that are passionate and have angst and anxiety about this, but I'm not involved in this," Welliver said, maintaining that the hotel is "completely unconnected to our customers and their beliefs, or whatever they do for a living."
Instead, he added, the establishment evaluates its clientele "based on economics."
Asked if he could imagine an instance in which the hotel might turn away an already-booked guest for noneconomic reasons, Welliver said, "I can envision if you got the kind of people you really only see on the 11 o'clock news, dangerous or nasty people capable of violence."
Like Welliver, David Friedman, the ADL's Washington-area director, criticized the JDO's tactics. "This is an incident in which you have an extremist group attempting to have a boycott of a hotel to protest another extremist group," he said.
The JDO, he added, "is only raising the risk that people are going to act out in ways that are going to hurt innocent people or people involved in the hotel."
Halber ‹ along with Welliver and Friedman ‹ cited American Renaissance's right to freedom of expression.
"I don't think you defend the interest of the Jewish community by denying the rights of others to speak," Halber said. "In the end, that will backfire."
JDO spokesperson Dave Segal countered that "Freedom of speech is meant for sane people with different opinions, not insane people getting people killed. Freedom of speech stops when hate speech begins."
Segal also said: "When Nazis are allowed to talk, they get more and more recruits."
Potok said American Renaissance has never been associated with violence, although some of the leading "neo-Nazis and white supremacists regularly attend their meetings."
Both the ADL and SPLC say that although Taylor generally avoids anti-Semitism, American Renaissance is divided, according to Potok, "over whether it's only black people wrecking the world or whether Jews are behind it."
In 2006, Taylor said that Jews have a valuable role in the work of the American Renaissance, and he lamented that a participant at a previous conference had denounced "Jews as the historic enemy of the European people."
He also wrote: "Some people in the AR community believe Jewish influence was decisive in destroying the traditional American consensus on race. Others disagree."
Nevertheless, Friedman pointed out that there is little debate regarding the perceived threat posed by Jews among people "that are attracted to the American Renaissance."
Interviewed on Friday, Taylor said he was shocked that his name and home phone number appear on JDO's Web site, but has not received calls from protesters.
He compared his beliefs that the United States should be a white-majority country with Israel's desire to remain a Jewish nation with a Jewish majority.
When it was pointed out that the United States was not founded specifically as a white nation, he countered that the first citizenship law "specified that only free white people can be naturalized citizens" and that it is "revisionist history" to say anything else about the nation's founding.
As for Jews, Taylor said, "I think Jews have an important role in the United States and Jews are white as far as I'm concerned."
Zvi Schoenberg, head of Gesher Jewish Day School in Fairfax, said the meeting has been a topic of conversation in Northern Virginia's Jewish community. "People are not happy about it, even though they don't feel an immediate threat," he said. "I think it's pretty outrageous that this is happening in our community."
For his part, Alexandria's Paul Friedman, a member of JCRC's Northern Virginia commission, would like to see the conference canceled.
"I believe in free expression, but that doesn't require any particular company to provide a forum," said Friedman, a lawyer.

Gregg MacDonald David Welliver, General Manager of the Crowne Plaza hotel in Herndon, says that despite extreme pressure from a Jewish group, he has no plans to cancel a controversial convention scheduled to take place at his hotel in February.
The biannual New Century Foundation convention is organized by Oakton resident Jared Taylor, who calls himself a race realist and publishes American Renaissance magazine, which he has done for nearly 20 years. The 2008 convention will take place Feb. 22-24 in Herndon.Taylor is a Nazi pig, Jeff Adler, spokesman for the Jewish Defense Organization, a militant group not affiliated with the Jewish Defense League, said in a phone interview.
Taylor has invited David Duke and other neo-Nazis to speak at his convention. They hate Jews and they hate blacks and these are neo-Nazis, there's no doubt about it, Adler said. We hold this convention every two years in February at a hotel near the airport, and we have done so since long before immigration ever became an issue in Herndon, Taylor said when asked why he chose Herndon as the 2008 locale. If [the JDO] are looking for Nazis they are barking up the wrong tree. We have two Jewish speakers scheduled to speak this year and we always have Jewish participants. I think that our first year, half the participants were Jewish. There is nothing the slightest bit Nazi about American Renaissance. We simply believe that diversity is not a strength but instead leads to tension and divisiveness. Taylor also said that rather than inviting David Duke, he has actually asked the former presidential candidate and self-professed white supremacist to stay away.
Yes, David Duke has attended despite being asked to stay away, but it's like if you have a restaurant and David Duke eats there, does that make you a neo-Nazi? Taylor said.Adler's answer is an emphatic yes. He has begun a campaign, called Operation Nazi-Kicker to prompt the Crowne Plaza hotel to cancel the meeting of hate.I see no reason to breach our agreement with that client, Welliver said in response to the effort. We do not discriminate or judge clients and that is not how we go about evaluating pieces of business. That's real life, I am not in the position to give an opinion. Business does not have an opinion. I am just trying to pay the rent. I am just a lowly hotel guy trying to get through the day. Welliver did say however, that security will be increased during the convention and that local law enforcement has been notified of the situation. I am just going to have faith that there are more reasonable honorable, decent people out there than there are kooks, he said.
A Jewish organization is waging a campaign to stop the monthly magazine American Renaissance's February convention at the Crowne Plaza Dulles Airport hotel in Herndon. The magazine bills itself as being the "premiere publication of racial-realist thought," according to its Web site. The Jewish Defense Organization, a group that fights anti-Semitism and trains Jews in self-defense techniques, began this week calling Washington, D.C., area Jewish groups, Hillel organizations and local synagogues to urge people to contact the hotel and request that the meeting be cancelled, said Jewish Defense Organization spokesman Jeff Adler. "People are very upset about this," Adler said. "People do not want this Nazi meeting to happen."Adler said he was encouraging people to, "flood the hotel, let the highest levels of the hotel know, this Nazi meeting must be stopped."The group called its effort "Operation Nazi-Kicker" and listed the phone numbers of the hotel management on its Web site, www.jewishdefense.org. "I think it's totally illegitimate to try to sabotage someone's meeting," said Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance. "I cannot think of words strong enough to condemn that." Taylor said trying to shut down another group's meeting flies against the American values of freedom of speech and democracy. "They would be very happy in Stalin's Soviet Union," he said. The American Renaissance convention will cover the themes of race and immigration, Taylor said. The event will feature speakers such as J. Philippe Rushton, a professor at the University of Western Ontario, who is the author of the book "Race, Evolution and Behavior," and Paul Gottfried, a professor at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania, who is the author of "Conservatism in America: Making Sense of the American Right," according to the publication's Web site."What we talk about is entirely legitimate and in accordance with history, morality and human nature," Taylor said. "We have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of." David Welliver, general manager of the Crowne Plaza, did not return calls by The Observer's deadline on Wednesday night.
A conference planned for February of 2008 at the Crowne Plaza Dulles Airport hotel in Herndon is drawing attention as a New York-based Jewish organization is demanding that the hotel cancel it. The group claims the conference will entertain anti-Semitic and anti-minority lectures and comments.
"We don’t believe that Nazis have the right to speak," said Jess Adler, a spokesman for the Jewish Defense Organization (JDO). "We don’t let them speak, we don’t let them grow," said Adler. His group, numbering around 4,000 in the U.S., is calling on people to call the Crowne Plaza to get the conference cancelled.
American Renaissance, an Oakton-based magazine in its 19th year of publication, is the conference organizer. Jared Taylor, the magazine’s editor, said JDO is wrong in its assertions about the conference. "They are grievously uninformed," said Taylor. He said he has never heard of JDO and said American Renaissance focuses on examining racial issues. "The focus is to investigate problems of race and immigration, not just in America, but worldwide," he said.
The repeating series of riots in France are an example of problems the publication, and its conferences, examines, said Taylor. He said the people announced to speak at the conference come from international academia. "They are all very well informed people," said Taylor. "In fact, two of our speakers are Jews."
ADLER DISMISSED Taylor’s claim about the Jewish speakers at the conference, saying that some speakers could be unaware of what they are getting into. According to Adler, scheduled speakers have walked out from previous conferences organized by Taylor when they realized the purpose of those conferences. Adler said area residents alerted JDO about the conference, prompting the effort to cancel it. He said previous Taylor-organized conferences have given a platform to people such as David Duke, a Louisiana politician, whose Web site claims he has dedicated his life to freedom and heritage of European American peoples. Adler said a similar JDO effort managed to cancel Duke’s own conference at a Richmond hotel last year.
"They must be great believers in freedom of speech," said Taylor about JDO. "I think they should be ashamed of themselves" for attempting to cancel the conference. He said JDO’s effort is "utterly contemptible" and asked, "Is this a way you run a democracy?" Taylor said that as long as the conference is a legal gathering, there should be nothing wrong with it. "They sound like Nazis to me, trying to shut down this conference," said Taylor. "We are exchanging views, that’s what democracy is about."
Adler said it is important to stop such meetings, because they can lead to more. "Hitler started with six people in a beer hall," he said. "Freedom of speech ends when bigotry begins."
ADLER DRAWS his information about potential racists, anti-Semites and white supremacists from the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center. The center was established in 1971 as a small civil rights law firm. The center’s Web file lists Taylor as a person to watch. It also states that Taylor’s conferences are well attended and have international reach.
Booth Gunter, the public affairs director at the Southern Poverty Law Center, said people listed on the center’s Web pages are labeled after going through an internal evaluation. "It’s a judgment about their public statements and also their activity," said Gunter.
The American Renaissance conference is scheduled for Feb. 22 to Feb. 24 at the Crowne Plaza Dulles Airport hotel in Herndon. The American Renaissance Web site states that the conference will "discuss the forces that will determine our future." It adds that the speakers and guests are "undeceived, outspoken and committed to the defense of Western Civilization."
A phone call to the hotel’s general manager was not returned.

A militant Jewish group is pressing a Herndon hotel to halt an upcoming conference organized by a white nationalist group based in Northern Virginia.
The Jewish Defense Organization is calling on supporters to push the Crowne Plaza Dulles Airport hotel into canceling a Feb. 22-24 conference for the New Century Foundation and its American Renaissance Magazine. The Jewish group calls the foundation a "neo-Nazi" organization and says that it has worked with white supremacist and former presidential candidate David Duke.
"The reason we want it stopped is these are neo-Nazis. There's no question," said Jeffrey Adler, a spokesman for the Jewish Defense Organization.
David Welliver, the hotel's general manager, did not return calls seeking comment.
The magazine and 13-year-old foundation were created by Jared Taylor, an Oakton resident who calls himself a "race realist" and advocates an end to all immigration and all laws forbidding discrimination.
In a telephone interview last week, Taylor, 56, said that genetics is the overriding reason for differences in intelligence between the races and that this accounts for inferior test scores by blacks compared with whites, and by whites compared with Asians.
He also argued for an end to affirmative action and other efforts to close the "achievement gap" between white and black children, saying these are politically correct but ultimately useless attempts to overcome innate differences between people.
Taylor also disavowed any association with neo-Nazi organizations and decried efforts to close down the conference.
"It seems that if anybody is a Nazi in this group, it's the ones trying to force the other group into silence," Taylor said. "Frankly, I find the behavior of these people truly contemptible."
Taylor said about 250 people are expected to attend the conference. Protesters rallied when the biennial American Renaissance Conference last met, in Herndon in March 2006. Last March, a Canadian university rescinded its invitation for Taylor to speak, saying threats by protesters raised the concern that the university would have to spend a lot of money on extra security.
Adler, the Jewish Defense spokesman, said his organization would call on other Jews to boycott the hotel if the conference goes on. The group's Web site and telephone number also urge callers to protest to hotel management.
"We're a militant self-defense group," Adler said. "The bottom line is, the hotel has to know that there will be big, ugly demonstrations."
He said it was important to combat groups such as New Century Foundation before they reach a wider audience.
"The bottom line is, every time the Nazis get their message out, they receive new people," Adler said.
Adler denied that his group was infringing on the organization's rights to free speech and assembly.
"That's what Hitler said, that some people tried to silence him," Adler said. "The reality is, Hitler started with a handful of followers, and Jews said, 'Let him speak.' The fruits of free speech for Nazis was Auschwitz and 6 million Jews dead. Anti-Semitic words lead to anti-Semitic action."
Both organizations have been labeled by civil rights organizations as extremists. The Southern Poverty Law Center calls the New Century Foundation a "hate group" and Taylor a "white supremacist."
The Jewish Defense Organization is demanding that the Crowne Plaza Hotel cancel an upcoming neo-nazi connvention scheduled in February. JDO swung into action as soon as the JDO Intelligence Unit was tipped of about this upcoming hatefest against the Jews and otgher minorities. A neo-nazi white supremacist group that has given platforms and works with long time leader of the neo-nazis and KKK groups David Duke has booked a prominent hotel near Wash DC for its vicious anti-Semitic and racist message to be heard. In fact this group very recently had small time Hitler David Duke give a speech about the Jews. This neo-nazi outfit is called the American Renaissance and is run by neo-nazi admirer Jarred Taylor. In fact enemy of the Jews Taylor is bringing other notorious neo-nazi misfits to his planned convention at the Crowne Plaza Dulles.. Taylor works closely against Jews and other minorities and has collaborated with neo-nazi leaders like Don Black who ran the KKK and currently runs a vicious vile neo-nazi website called "Stormfront" which is loaded with threats to try and wipe out the Jews in America and supports terror attacks on Jews, and Blacks and other minorities. "Jared Taylor’s David Duke Neo-Nazi KKK helping anti-Semitic racist meeting must be cancelled," said David Cohen JDO spokesman. The JDO has repeated it over and over, "no free speeech for Nazis!" JDO has always pointed out that the "fruits of freedom of speech for Nazis" was Auschwitz, Bergen Belsen, Treblinka and Babi Yar, and 6 Million murdered Jews. The acorns of free speech for Nazis grew into the oak trees of Auschwitz. Hitler started with 6 members in a beer hall in Munich. Then as the economy went Kaput in Germany 6 became hundreds and thousands and millions voting for Nazi Party candidates. In fact noted author and expert on the Nazis Willaim Shirer mentions this in hisbook that when the Nazis started, and held small street meetings in Germany they were considered laughing stocks.
In fact one Jewish Miltant leader Zev Vladmir Jabotinsky founder of the militant Jewish Self-Defense Organization came to Germany’s and urged his folowers in Germany and Austria, to repel before Hitler was even in power any attempt by the Nazis to march with violence. In Austria where a number of young Jews had trained in guns and boxing and self-defense, after Nazi attack at the University of Vienna on Jews walking about the campus by Nazi thugs in the early 1930’s before the Nazis came to power it was Jabotinsky’s version of militant Jewish Self-Defense Organization, there called Betar that went Nazi hunting one day and beat every Nazi they found walking around the campus in uniform. Make no mistake the Nazi attacks there stopped for a while. In Germany and America Jabotinsky’s men and Jewish youth tried breaking up in the early 1930’s in cooperation with the Jewish War Veterans various Nazi groups attemting to come to power. Make no mistake that when Jabotinsky went to Germany giving speeches about his predicting the Nazi Party of Hitler would one day rise to power and try to make a Hoocaust sgsisnt Europe’s Jews he proposed 2 things to stop this. One was emergency Aliyah immigration by German Jews and of Europe’s Jews to pre-state Israel. Two that German Jews for amred trained self-defense units to protext themselves as well as make a total war on Hitler and his " not in power yet" Nazis. The German Jews laughed that the Nazis would never come to power and that Jabotinsky was a madman. They would always point out tat Germany (lie America today) is a democracy and Jews are accepted in the universities, were professors, doctors, lawyers and had influence. THey would point out that the foreign minister was Walter Rathenau a Jew.
Several years later in 1929 a depression hit Germany and suddenly as Nazis started winning elections, holding huge monster "Death to the Jews" meetings. By 1933 the Hilter was elected chancellor, and the German Jews woke up to the fact the Nazis were "not a jole anymore." In fact as the dark clouds of the Holocaust enveloped them many probably asked why didn’t we go after the Nazis early on when they were a small group of several hundred. In fact Hitler actually makes reference to this on hisdiary where he states openly tht when the Nazi Party had its first meeting and about 50 potential recruits came to a meeting. Hitler says that if the Jews had physically broken up that first meeting then the Nazi Party would have been destroyed!
In America today neo-nazi groups are growing across the country blaming the Jew for Americas ills. They are not 7 members like when Hitler started but close to a million have voted for Nazi candidates. Do we Jews forget that Nazi pig David Duke was elected to the Louisiana State legislature and when he ran for governor received 650,000 votes almost 70% of whites in that state? The Nazis are huge, and so is the KKK, and the threat speaks for itself. Do we Jews dare close our eyes to the danger when neo-nazis have done numerous atttacks on Jews including shooting 6 Jews leaving synagogues not long ago? Or bombing that neo-nazis did to synagogues from coast to coast? Or shooting a Jewish talk show host dead named Alan Berg in Denver? Or the neo-nazis having guerilla warfare camps where they teach assorted nazis lie the skinheads how to spill Jewish blood, Heaven Forbid? Or the recent violet attacks on Jewish professors at Columbia University at their offices by hard core neo-nazis? It was for this reason that JDO launched a 3-pronged effort to prevent a repeat of history, and prevent a Holocaust or any attack on Jews here in the US.
Starting in the 1980’s JDO wrecked many a neo-nazi or KKK rally. JDO also galvanized many Jews at huge JDO meetings, many at hotlines and synagogues to enroll in our assorted legal gun training and be part of the JDO Security Team and guard synagogues and Jews from attack from neo-nazis or other assorted Jew-Haters. JDO also launched a new action called "Operation Nazi-Kicker!" to get Nazis fired from their jobs,evicted from their homes, and run out of their meeting places like hotels. JDO urges angry Jews to call the hotel just like we are doing with the Crowne Plaza and flood them with calls alerting them that there wil be a boycott of the Crowne Plaza Dulles or wherever if they do not cancel the planned Nazi meeting. We will teach Crowne Plaza that we Jews will make sure there is a price to pay for welcoming Holocaust seeking neo-nazis.
One's name is Weisberg, and lives in NYC. He sent us this email -
I see you are trying to organize a disruption of the upcoming American Renaissance meeting. This is a serious mistake and you are hurting Jews.
Let be absolutely clear. I am Jewish, a strong hard-line supporter of Israel, an AIPAC benefactor, and so on and so on. My mother fled Poland in 1938 and she left behind most of her family. I raised both my children Jewish. On the other side, I've written for the AR publication and attended several meetings.
You have it all wrong. I'd estimate that there are more than a dozen Jews who regularly attend AR meetings, several who speak at them, and so on. I know Jared Taylor personally and have invited him to eat at my house (and served Kosher wine, to boot).
There is a Nazi element there--the Storm Front--and Jared is trying his best to get rid of them. But, there are also anti-Semitic elements at most major universities--this is a sad fact of modern life.
If you persist in doing what you plan to do, this will be a shanda for the Jews. Cheap thrills, at best. It will only strengthen the few remaining crackpots who openly hate Jews.
Please re-think you strategy. I've taught politics for 35 years, including strategy, and this is a terrible idea. There are better ways to fight the enemy.

Did the students and faculty of University of Illinois-Urbana know that Weissberg was a Jewish racist? Did he deliberately give Black students low grades to "prove" his own cockamaimee theories that Blacks are genetically inferior. JDO demands that the university review the grades he meted out to detect any pattern that might emerge. Now Weissberg is trying to weasel his way out saying, "I don't go to meetings and have advised others to do the same." Before he was thrust into the Spotlight he said it was okay for Jews to attend and speak at these meetings, "You have it all wrong. I'd estimate that there are more than a dozen Jews who regularly attend AR meetings, several who speak at them, and so on." DEMAND AN INVESTIGATION OF WEISSBERG. See info below.

He has a college degree even a PHD, but no true Jewish self-esteem. In fact he reminds us of those self-hating Jews, also traitors to the Jews who back wannabe Hitler Lyndon Larouche. They would write long screeds lying and denying that Larouche was an anti-semite! They, like Robert Weisberg could list every bit of suffering (some of their) parents went through before and during the Holocaust. Or even better they could tell you what synagogue they were "Bar Mitzvad" at. But in reality both they, the self-hating Jewish zombies of Larouche, and Weisberg of Jared Taylor group had the same lines in defense of the anti-semitic honcho they were defending. To really know what Jared Taylor's is read the report below and you can see quotes from some of those Jews who left Taylor. They admit that it became a "neo-nazi convention"! In fact these are also the lying defenses of those other traitors to the Jews "Neturei Krakpot" who attended with want to be Hitler David Duke the same "Holocaust is a Hoax" conference. These same sounding lies were peddled after JDO and others Jews blasted "Neturei Krakpot" publicly. They, like liar Weissberg also claimed the confrence they attended (in Iran) was not anti-semitic and only a "few anti-semites were present". Sounds just like Weisberg's lying letter where he lied for neo-nazi sympaythizer Jared Taylor!
JARED TAYLOR-Friend of the Neo-Nazis
There are numerous members of assorted neo-nazis at Jared Taylor’s meetings as documented below. What neo-nazi admirer Taylor does not want known is re his own Holocaust denial made in statements to some conservative, who then blasted Taylor. Additionally, Taylor does not tell those Jews he tries getting money and support out of are his secret support meetings with known neo-nazi misfits like Don Black.
Long time KKK & neo-nazi misfit leader and Stormfront founder Don Black and neo-Nazi David Duke go back to the 1970s, when Black was Duke's Alabama grand dragon in the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. Today, Black is married to Duke's ex-wife and a father figure to Duke's two daughters. Intelligence Report states,
When conservative author Dinesh D'Souza attended one of Taylor's American Renaissance conferences, he bumped into David Duke, former Klansman and current neo-nazi, chatting with Taylor. Another Klan stalwart is Don Black, whose neo-Nazi Web site, Stormfront.org, is a clearinghouse for extremist literature. Black gained celebrity in 1981 when he was arrested as he boarded a boat for Dominica where he and nine other mercenaries planned to overthrow that predominantly black island's government and install a white colonial junta. Potok, whose group occasional infiltrates Taylor's gatherings, sent me a photo of Don Black sitting at Jared Taylor's kitchen table, a beer in hand.
Virtually all those who denounced anti-Semitism and "Nazis" had no such compunctions when it came to people of color, particularly blacks. Herschel Elias, for instance, told the Intelligence Report that as a Jewish substitute teacher in public schools near Philadelphia, "I'm very disappointed with black people. Black kids are the worst kids." But he added that he now saw the conference as a "Nazi front."
But Taylor, who operates in a world that is peopled with anti-Semites as well as black-bashing "white nationalists," also tried to have it both ways. Atlanta lawyer Sam Dickson, for instance, has been invited to speak at every one of Taylor's biannual conferences -- despite a long history of Holocaust denial that includes membership on the editorial board of The Barnes Review, a journal that specializes in that topic. Joe Sobran, a columnist fired from the National Review for his anti-Semitism and repeat author for the Holocaust-denying Journal of Historical Review, gave a speech on Jewish power at Taylor's 2004 conference. Don Black, the former Klan leader who runs the neo-Nazi Stormfront web forum, has attended many conferences and visited Taylor's home. Another attendee and old Taylor pal, Mark Weber, heads up the Holocaust-denying Institute for Historical Review.
The list goes on. In separate interviews with the Intelligence Report, numerous "academic racists" complained of the neo-Nazi element at the conference.
• Michael Levin, a Jewish philosophy professor at the City University of New York who has spoken four times at American Renaissance conferences, said that there was "anti-Semitism among members of AR" and that this was part of the reason he did not attend the 2006 edition. (However, Levin still plugs his black-bashing book, Why Race Matters, in ads in American Renaissance.)
• Paul Gottfried, a humanities professor with Jewish ancestry at Elizabethtown (Penn.) College, spoke to the conference in 1998 and has published in American Renaissance. But he said he is dismayed at the current situation. "I cannot imagine any advantage to anyone to have these people there," he said
Battle of Words
The biggest threat to Jared Taylor's denying act has always been David Duke, the former leader of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan who has also been a convinced neo-Nazi since his teens. Duke, who came close to winning a campaign for Louisiana governor in 1992, was for years a celebrity on the radical right. Still, Taylor has sought to discourage Duke from attending his American Renaissance conferences ever since Duke crashed the first one in 1994. But even in years when he didn't enter the hall, Duke was often found outside, talking to participants. But now on David Duke’s website are open words of praise to Jared Taylor calling him a fellow "white patriot". Additionally David Duke aide Don Black long time leader of neo-nazi and KKK outfits has had numerous secret meetings with Taylor, at Taylors Virginia home.
It wasn't just Duke, either. Over the years, more and more participants at Taylor's conferences were Duke allies -- most notably, Don Black and supporters of Black's Stormfront website, including Stormfront moderator Jamie Kelso.
This year, the Duke/Black/Kelso crew was larger than ever. In an interview with the Intelligence Report, Kelso said that he had organized a contingent of some 75 Stormfront supporters to come to the conference. And these supporters were the most enthusiastic members of the 300-strong audience, standing and applauding each speaker after receiving the signal to do so from Kelso. They were also not the only anti-Semites present. Others, not affiliated with Stormfront, included Kevin Alfred Strom of Virginia, leader of the neo-Nazi National Vanguard group; Hal Turner, a neo-Nazi radio host from New Jersey; and David Pringle of Alaska, the former membership coordinator of the neo-Nazi National Alliance.
As a result, the Duke-Hart clash, which occurred on the last day of the conference, rapidly assumed epic proportions, spinning out across the entire radical right. Just days later, Duke published an essay on the conference, expressing deep admiration for Taylor as a man with the courage to tell the truth on race. But he went on to say that non-white immigration and a host of other ills "all have been driven by Jewish extremists in their relentless search for supremacy." Hart, Duke added tartly, had risen "in an almost perfect Jewish caricature and started to scream at me."
From London, Nick Griffin, a conference speaker who also heads the whites-only British National Party, denounced those who see behind every evil some kind of "world-Jewish conspiracy." Griffin's BNP, which harshly attacks Muslims and other British minorities, made this May -- a success that Griffin thinks would be undermined by neo-Nazi attacks on Jews. In his essay, Griffin suggested that Jews are a natural ally in the battle against Islam.
Lawrence Auster, a former American Renaissance speaker who also is a man with Jewish ancestry, chimed in on his own blog, describing Duke as "a major Jew-hater and an attention hog" and asking Taylor how he could be so "naïve as to allow Duke to attend at all." Another poster to Auster's site added, "It is imperative that neo-Nazis be asked to leave AR. ... European-Americans need to be assured they can affirm themselves and still be decent human beings."
JARED TAYLOR: Views on the Holocaust
In April 2007, a correspondent asked Taylor, "the myth of the Holocaust is a millstone around the neck of any nascent white nationalist movement. Where do you stand on this? Did they genocidally wipe out 6 million Jews or did they not?" Taylor's one line reply: "I’m not an expert on the subject, and it is not one into which I have looked." Subsequent to this, Lawrence Auster learned of Taylor's statement on the issue and an Internet debate ensued. Taylor further posted on the Internet that he did not have an opinion on the six million figure, in the same way that he did not know how many people died in the Armenian massacres, or how many American soldiers died during WWII. Auster (who has spoken at an American Renaissance conference sponsored by Taylor) and his supporters argued that such a stance was akin to Holocaust denial, and that this was not surprising given Taylor's close and longstanding friendship with Mark Weber, editor of the Holocaust-denial publication and former editor of the neo-Nazi publication.
By Gregg MacDonaldA controversial convention scheduled to begin Friday at a Herndon hotel will go on as planned despite opposition from various groups, including a protest rally planned for Saturday morning.
David Welliver, General Manager of the Crowne Plaza hotel in Herndon, told The Times that despite extreme pressure, he has no plans to cancel the event, which will take place Feb. 22-24.
The biannual New Century Foundation/American Renaissance convention is organized by Oakton resident Jared Taylor, who calls himself a "race realist" and publishes American Renaissance magazine, which he has done for nearly 20 years.
"Taylor is a Nazi pig," Jeff Adler, spokesman for the militant group Jewish Defense Organization, told The Times in November. Upon hearing about the convention, Adler began a campaign, called Operation Nazi-Kicker, to prompt the Crowne Plaza hotel to cancel what he called the "meeting of hate." He also said a physical protest was not out of the question.
"If [the JDO] are looking for Nazis they are barking up the wrong tree,” Taylor said in response.
The Southern Law Poverty Center, renowned for tracking and investigating hate-groups, lists Taylor on its Web site as one of “40 to watch” but says while “Taylor projects himself as a courtly presenter of ideas that most would describe as crudely white supremacist,” one thing that separates Taylor from the pack is “his lack of anti-Semitism.”
However, an unflattering report published by Taylor's New Century Foundation titled “Hispanics, a statistical portrait,” caught the attention of El Pueblo Unido, a Latino empowerment organization.
The organization coordinated its own phone campaign to the Herndon hotel's management.
“The goal is to drive the supremacists from the hotel they have prepared their conference in,” said Ricardo Cabellos in an email. “Should the phone campaign not work, we will pursue an organized protest with union friends during the event.”
A post this week on the Web site of international grassroots activist network Independent Media (indymedia.org), encourages protestors to meet in Herndon's Chandon Park on Saturday morning to stage a protest march to the hotel.
“We will then converge at the hotel to protest, confront and disrupt the racist hate spouted by the AmRen National Conference,” it says.
“So what can we expect,” wrote Taylor on the Web site VDARE about expected protests. “Perhaps a dozen shaggy, braying throwbacks to the 1960s who will divert conference-goers and passing motorists alike with quaint slogans and eccentric attire. Nothing could be more edifying than the contrast between the detritus on the sidewalk and the crisp, good manners in the conference hall.”
Police are prepared for a little bit more. Fairfax County Police 1st Lt. Andy Hill of the Reston District station said he is familiar with American Renaissance and its conventions.
“We've had protests of this event in the past in Fairfax County,” he said. “There has been some history of some minor disruptions but nothing of a large magnitude.”
Nonetheless, police have developed an operational plan.
“We are going to have some extra security present,” Hill said. “Just a soft deployment in the event that the hotel management needs anything from us. We are good to go with that.”
