The conference was actually convened by Jewish astrophysicist Michael Hart whose book titled, Understanding Human History, addresses "differences" in intelligence between various ethnic and racial groups. It's interesting to see the far right come together—academics together with neo-nazis in order to promote a "new" American Renaissance, the title of a racist publication. At least one proposal that came out was a "new, all-white political party." So I guess the Republican Party wasn't already white enough...
Other notables present were Steve Farron from Johannesburg, South Africa, author of The Affirmative Action Hoax and Philippe Rushton, a psychology professor at the University of Western Ontario, Canada. Farron and Rushton's agendas are to demonstrate IQ differences between whites and blacks.
Graglia commented on the need to get rid of birthright citizenship, an interpretation derived from the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Islam also took some hits, including a proposal to outlaw it. Hart himself compared the Koran to Mein Kampf and Islam to Nazism. Check out the http://www.splcenter.org/ website for more info.
By Janet SmithBaltimore, Md. — Seventy people, including a few well-known mainstream academics, joined prominent white nationalists and academic racists gathered in the Four Points Sheraton at the Baltimore/Washington International airport this February for the first-ever "Preserving Western Civilization Conference." Its aim: to defend "America's Judeo-Christian heritage and European identity." But not much civilized was said there. Rather, the discussion centered around claims that blacks are not as intelligent as whites, immigrants are destroying America, and Islam is no religion of peace — it's expansionist, intolerant, militant, and seeks to destroy.
The conference was convened by Jewish astrophysicist Michael Hart, author of the racist book Understanding Human History, which focuses on alleged differences in intelligence between various ethnic and racial groups. In the past, Hart was a regular at the biannual conferences put on by American Renaissance, a racist publication whose editor wrote, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, that "[w]hen blacks are left entirely to their own devices, Western civilization — any kind of civilization — disappears." Though few in number, Jewish academic racists were active in American Renaissance right from the start, welcomed by that group's leader, Jared Taylor, who even once arranged for kosher meals. But Taylor has also welcomed as speakers outspoken anti-Semites, including Holocaust denier Sam Dickson and neo-Nazi activist Steven Barry, making for a potentially volatile situation. Read on here.
