COMMENT: We have discussed Citizen Greenwald’s legal work, in which he spent years running legal interference for Nazi murderers and doing most of the work pro bono.

One of his legal victories involved aiding two white supremacists who had attacked two Latino day laborers.

In the past, Citizen Greenwald has had some deeply inflammatory things to say in the past concerning “illegal immigrants.” We wonder if his stated views on the evils of illegal immigration might be related to his work defending the attackers of the day laborers.

In his intemperate remarks about immigrants (which he later unconvincingly recanted), he also defended former Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo, an associate of the Tea Party and a fellow traveler of some notorious white supremacists.

Tancredo’s associates include Don Black, David Duke associate and creator of the Stormfront website. Black is among the numerous white supremacist and Nazi associates of Edward Snowden’s Presidential candidate of choice, Ron Paul. Tancredo’s fellow travelers also include members of the neo-Confederate movement and the League of the South, also networking elements of Ron Paul.

We STRONGLY suspect that Citizen Greenwald’s “lapses” of ideological countenance stem from the fact that he is an operative of the Underground Reich and, like Snowden himself, a spook of some sort.

“Would You Feel Differently About Snowden, Greenwald, and Assange If You Knew What They Really Thought?” by Sean Wilentz; The New Republic; 1/19/2014.

EXCERPT: . . . . Greenwald’s other clients included the neo-Nazi National Alliance, who were implicated in an especially horrible crime. Two white supremacists on Long Island had picked up a pair of unsuspecting Mexican day laborers, lured them into an abandoned warehouse, and then clubbed them with a crowbar and stabbed them repeatedly. The day laborers managed to escape, and when they recovered from their injuries, they sued the National Alliance and other hate groups, alleging that they had inspired the attackers. . . .

. . . . On certain issues, though, his [Greenwald’s] prose was suffused with right-wing conceits and catchphrases. One example was immigration, on which Greenwald then held surprisingly hard-line views. “The parade of evils caused by illegal immigration is widely known,” Greenwald wrote in 2005. The facts, to him, were indisputable: “illegal immigration wreaks havoc economically, socially, and culturally; makes a mockery of the rule of law; and is disgraceful just on basic fairness grounds alone.” Defending the nativist congressman Tom Tancredo from charges of racism, Greenwald wrote of “unmanageably endless hordes of people [who] pour over the border in numbers far too large to assimilate, and who consequently have no need, motivation or ability to assimilate.” Those hordes, Greenwald wrote, posed a threat to “middle-class suburban voters.” . . . .

“Former Congressman Tancredo to Address White Supremacists” by Ryan Lenz;  Hate Watch [Southern Poverty Law Center]; 6/19/2012.

EXCERPT: . . . . The former Republican congressman from Colorado, known for his biting anti-immigration rhetoric and campaign ads suggesting Latino immigrants are rapists and drug dealers, is scheduled to be the luncheon speaker at next month’s annual conference for the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC). [Tancredo wound up canceling–D.E.] The theme of the conference? “Multiculturalism – the Death of America.”

Sharing the dais with Tancredo will be a rogue’s gallery of the racist right, including James Edwards, who hosts the white nationalist Political Cesspool radio show; Don Black, the former Klansman best known for creating Stormfront.org, the first major Internet hate site; and Leonard Wilson, a longtime segregationist and Alabama commander for the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a neo-Confederate group that, like Tancredo, staunchly opposes immigration.

For those who have watched Tancredo go through endless contortions to distance himself from his racist friends, speaking at a CCC conference seems to be a turning point. The time has passed to apologize for the company he keeps.

And what company it is.

Tancredo was already honorary chairman of Youth for Western Civilization (YWC), an ultraconservative student group that has actively cultivated relationships with white nationalist organizations such as the racist League of the South (LOS), whose leader Michael Hill recently penned an essay describing how white people are endowed with a “God-ordained superiority” and professing that it was a “monumental lie” that all men are created equal. In 2006, Tancredo delivered an anti-immigrant speech and sang “Dixie” at a barbecue advertised by the South Carolina chapter of the LOS. . . . .

EXCERPT: . . . . Tancredo stood smiling at the crowd and waving before starting off his speech with “I’m Tom Tancredo and I drive a Harley!” He quickly moved on from the topic of motorcycles, however, to get to his main target: immigrants.

He stated that many of the people who voted Obama into office “can’t even spell the word vote or even speak English,” which brought loud applause from the crowd. He said that it was a good thing that McCain didn’t win the election otherwise we would be see him and Rep. Gutierrez receive awards from NCLR for introducing and implementing an amnesty bill. He went on to talk about the “cult of multiculturalism” which is “aided by leftists.”

He issued a warning to the crowd that “our culture is at stake” and that our culture “is based on Judeo-Christian values whether people like it or not!” Near the end of his speech Tancredo announced to the crowd that he was going to be working with Roy Beck, executive director of NumbersUSA (an anti-immigrant group with strong ties to white nationalists) at their breakout session on Friday. He encouraged people to attend the session and thanked Roy Beck and NumbersUSA for all their good work. . . .
