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.
