KINGSTON DIVISION


Goodness gracious, me-oh-my, everybody wants a piece of the pie! The rally in Kingston is being heralded as the most important white nationalist event, and everybody wants in on it as long as they don't have to work with each other.

Much like those who claim no affiliation or support for the National Socialist Movement, designating them "Hollywood Nazi's" and denigrating them as an "embarrassment to the cause," there are others who detest Hal Turner, the organizer of the Kingston rally.

Turner has managed to alienate many from his brand of nationalism. His crude style and his brazen tactics are the stuff that raises the hackles on those anemic Nazi's who want to put forth a moderate front to white, mainstream America.

Similar to Bill White and Michael Blevins (Von Bluvens) Hal Turner is an attention junkie. Over the years he has broadcast and posted the names and addresses of his enemies and engaged in stunts that put many in danger. Earlier this year, when Judge Joan Lefkow's husband and mother were killed, Turner got himself in more than just a little hot water when he posted the personal information on other federal judges.

After the riots in Toledo last month, Hal just couldn't stand being upstaged by the likes of Bill White and the NSM, so he decided to get his own little piece of the publicity pie by staging a rally against black on white crime in Kingston, NY. What he didn't bargain for was the Stormfront guru of hate stepping forth and asking him to relinquish his fifteen minutes of fame.


Don Black, generally low-key and hidden behind his massive Stormfront forum, stepped to the plate and asked Hal Turner to step aside. Claiming that he and other Stormfront members would attend the rally if Turner were not involved, he pretty much called Hal's hand on whether or not Turner was really there for cause or rather for his own glory.

Many things have transpired to create this chasm between Turner and his fellow white nationalist buddies, not the least of which is his penchant for publishing death threats against those he perceives as his enemies. Of course, his enemies are anyone who publicly disagrees with him.

In this latest power play, it has become quite evident that regardless of how passionate the racist right is about their hateful "cause," it still does not supersede the hate that they have for each other.

Of course, that is to our advantage.

One would think, however, that Hal Turner would learn a few things after being shunned and deprecated by his peers. While he has publicly apologized and since been reduced to begging for help from other leaders and groups, he continues to engage in the very rhetoric and actions that he has been ridiculed for.

When it was announced that Ulster County official, Frank Dart, thinks that a counter demonstration is necessary, Hal Turner screamed from behind his computer. Posting his thoughts on the matter, Turner also posted Dart's home address and stated:

"Maybe someone ought to head over to Frank's house and offer him some remedial education about the rally."

Calling Dart a "panzy-ass," a "moron," and a "coward," Turner states that he has "...detailed two dozen Ku klux Klansmen to stand in plain clothes with the COUNTER DEMONSTRATORS! The Klansmen have been instructed to take action only if the COUNTER DEMONSTRATORS commit violence. So while Frank Dart, the Mayor and others stand in opposition to our "Rally Against Violence" they can draw solace from the fact the guys standing near them are Klansmen!"

Well...on that note, there is little else to be said. Fortunately, Hal Turner becomes more and more neutralized every day. He is in the process of neutering himself and being rendered totally impotent. We can only hope that this urchin becomes more and more dwarfed during the days leading up to this "momentous" event. And we can only hope that cool heads and open hearts prevail.

  1. Letter To The Public

    From Rebekah Hedrick
    Mother of 14 year old student who was violently beaten
    at Hingston, NY High School, during school hours



    We were just like any other ordinary family until Oct.705, as a matter fact one might have called me liberal. I even worked diligently on the Kerry campaign. What happened to my son was something that a parent cannotimagine. While walking past a gang of black kids on the lower wall of his High School my son and his friends were called to, made fun of and called a racial slur by this gang. The attack commenced from behind. A 300 pound kid weighing 2 and a half times my sons weight struck by spinning him around and holding his hair, punchingwith such force that it broke three bones in his face! His orbital bone floor fractured leaving a large hole between his eye and sinus cavity. A friend of my sons tried to stop the attack and he did he was punched, kicked and stomped into the ground by what some say was three but some accounts state two large black children. No security guards were present to stop the assault, the KPD were the only ones that responded. My son has been in and out of hospitals, to every specialist imaginable has had more surgery and still has vison damage. After my son was hurt another mother called me to tell of her horror story in the district which landedher son in the hospital with stitches in his head in the Kingston summer school program. This beating also had been given to a white boy by a gang of blacks yet nothing was done. On Oct 31st another boy was beaten by a gang of blacks , he landed in the hospital with a broken nose. His mother statesthis was indeed racial. The school sent me and the family of the boy in ourattack a faux incident report stating these incidents were on Broadway not on campus. Many witnesses say it was right on the driveway of the High School! Now lets get this straight, 4 white boys beaten by gangs of blacks in the last 3 months..this is not racial? What is it then? If the shoe were on the other foot it would be called as such? I did not know who Hal turner was until a contact of his contacted me urging me to call in and tell my story. He was outraged at what had taken place. All I wanted was a rally to protest this kind of violence, bring attention to the double standard and the fact that hate crimes should be applied equally. Now, there are counter-protesters coming to the rally to preach tolerance. Where were the tolerance protesters to teach tolerance to the attackers before these boys were beaten? Where are the tolerance protesters when these kids are constantly being harassed for money?? Do these beatings of white kids add so little to the equation of tolerance that they are denied their rights? MY SON HAS PERMANENT VISION DAMAGE! KIDS ARE NOT SAFE IN THIS SCHOOL! What was I supposed to do, leave this to the same people that allowed this to happen to these boys? Hal Turner may not be the right messenger but he wasthe only one that would listen. No one, no one at all wanted to use the word racial. I did not want to use iteither. It became more apparent to me as I talked with more andmore people that had experiences such as mine. We have become paralyzed by this word when it is used to defend a white person. Many white parents are afraid. Many of them are outraged at what is going on but many are too afraid tospeak up. Many have just given up and taken their children out of this school! Once we admit there are racial inequalities pertaining to attacks on whites we can allow them the same rights as all others. Why is it so hard for people to admit we have a racial problem? If we admit it we can work on it. I’m not a racist or anti-Semitic. I ask for people to please take a look at what is happening here. Equal justice for all. Rebekah Hedrick ___________Editors Note: A "Rally Against Violence" is scheduledfor Saturday, November 19, 2005 at 12:00 Noon in frontof Kingston High School, 420 Broadway, Kingston, NY. I call upon ALL people of good will to attend this rally, which will protest VIOLENT CRIMINAL ATTACKS. This is not about one race being "better" than another.It is not about "white supremecy" as the local media might have you believe. The rally is about stopping racial violence and demanding Equal Treatment Under The Law with regard to charging criminals with Hate Crimes. Nothing more, nothing less. Details about the rally can be found at: http://www.halturnershow.com/KingstonRally.html

  2. You know, "Elmer" I am really sorry that all of this is happening in any town in America. I hate the fact that kids are being beaten up and cannot attend school without fear. And, it sure sounds like there is a racial problem in Kingston, New York - at least among the kids.

    I am certainly hoping that Robbie can get through this and be a happy and healthy young man again.

    But...what is this rally going to do? I mean, what is the purpose behind all of this? What is it that you hope to accomplish? And don't EVEN try to tell me that this rally is not about white supremacism. Don't EVEN try to tell me that it is not about hate. That may fly with some who have no idea who the participants are - but it won't fly here.

    Bringing a bunch of hate mongers into any city will not solve the problem. You guys will spend an hour protesting what has happened - and when it is over you will leave the residents, and law-enforcement, and schools and churches to clean up the mess that you have made - and NOTHING will be solved. You come on here and elsewhere and water down your message claiming that this has nothing to do with hate - well...all anyone has to do is go to that link that you provided and they will know different. You can try to be crafty - but you guys are always found out in the end. No wonder others call you an embarrassment - it's too bad you just don't get it.

  3. I'm sorry, but I just can't tolerate all of the bad & evilness that comes from the black race. The easiest solution would be to put all of them on slow boats back to Africa. And then you and all of your racially misguided Buddies can go with them and then you could live in harmony.

  4. Nicole, you continually stuck you head in the sand about what happened to Robby. Not only him but 4 White teens have been attacked by Blacks who used racial, anti-white words and nobody even presses Hate Crime charges!

    You and your ilk deny that anything could ever happen in a racially biased way towards whites. All you do is attack any White person who comes forward to stand up for their race. Yet anti-racist websites are full of crying about poor, unfortunate minorites who get the bad end of a White man's fist.

    If you really want to do something Nicole, march with Hal on November 19th. Not because you agree with him but because you see the injustice of what's being done. And start speaking out against the anti-White crimes being done by minorities, and coming up with ways to address them, not just shoving them under the carpet.

    {{{Well...hello there. I don't think I "stuck my head in the sand." I acknowledged that there appears to be racial problems in Kingston. And, ya know, I would have no problem with the perpetrators of these beatings being charged with hate crimes if all that has been alleged can be proven.}}}

    {{{So, are you asking if I believe that black people can be racist? Of course I do. As to what I have a problem with, however, you don't seem to have a clue. So...let me spell it out for you. I have a problem with narrow-minded, myopic individuals who boil everything down along racial lines. I have a problem with well-known hate-mongers attempting to capitalize on travesties and the pain of others. I have a problem with hate-mongers marching into a community for the sole purpose of furthering their agenda. I have a problem with hate-mongers period.}}}

    {{{Gee...thanks for the invitation - that's mighty...dare I say...white of you. However, spending my Saturday afternoon marching alongside Hal Turner is just not something I can forsee anytime in the future.

    Now...given the problems that the community is evidently having, it is highly unlikely that the presence of a bunch of skinheads and klansmen and Nazi's are going to make any kind of differecne - at least not in the positive sense.

    It's really too bad that the protest isn't against school violence, or the lack of security in the schools, or perhaps a rally to encourage city officials to do something about the mess that is happening there. It's really too bad that people aren't protesting the obvious. But then, that wouldn't provide you guys with your one hour of fame, now would it?}}}

    {{{Wow Elmer! Where is all of that love that Hal is spreading around? Aren't you the one who said that Hal isn't about hate?

    This is really pretty sad, Elmer. Most of us live in harmony just fine right now. It must really suck being you. I can't imagine waking up every day with that much hate in my heart.}}}

  7. You know. Robby is a friend. I know the children involved PERSONALY.

    He was harassing the other students like they were harassing him.

    Children fight. As adults we try so hard to make them not. But a scuffle has to occur sometimes.

    As kids grow. Scuffles turn to brawls. But the outcomes are the same. Hurt teens. Confused parents. And a school system that has to try to teach everyone to tolerate one another no matter thier difference.

    It was not a hate Crime that hurt Robby. It was just children being children. I am out on the streets of Broadway in front of KHS every day having lunch with my white daughter.

    Every so often blacks laugh at us. Or other kids joke about her having lunch with me. A white girl beat my daughter up last month.
    A WHITE girl.

    Much older then her. I got an order of protection from Judge Feeney in Kingston Court to protect my child.

    Why does not the mother of Robby do the same?

  8. Toni, I had heard basically the same thing - that Robby might not be as innocent as he is being portrayed in all of this. However, I was never able to verify it. Of course, that doesn't make what happen to him right or any less painful.

    However, I agree with you. Being a teenager in today's world is a very difficult thing. We try to instill tolerance and love for your fellow man in our youth - but sometimes things just happen or go awry.

    Robby has a battle to heal and become whole again. What did this rally accomplish? I can't help but wonder what the climate in that school is going to be like now. Hopefully, the events that led up to all of this have served to create a bond in our young people - sometimes they are a lot smarter than we give them credit for.
