• Event in South Carolina opens door to advance radical cultural change.
By John Friend —
In the aftermath of the alleged mass shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, reportedly carried out by Dylann Storm Roof, a disgruntled and alienated 21-year-old white man, Democrats and the liberal Marxist media are taking full advantage of the incident in their ongoing war on traditional America.
The shooting, which is said to have resulted in the deaths of nine black church members, including Clementa Pinckney, a S.C. state senator who also served as the lead pastor of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church for the past 20 years, is being used by the political left and mass media to demonize gun owners, Southerners, pro-white racialist thinkers, conservatives and white Americans generally. Immediately following the shooting, President Barack Hussein Obama and other elite political figures began calling for gun control and other unconstitutional restrictions on speech, thought and the press.
“This is another great example where the media creates hysteria about the evils of white people, ignoring the fact that 85% of interracial crime is black on white,” Dr. Kevin B. MacDonald, editor of The Occidental Quarterly, pointed out. “They then use this to advance their laundry list of liberal and leftist causes—gun control, uprooting tradition, particularly in the South and generally creating the idea that somehow whites who identify as white and seek to advance white interests are a huge danger to society.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), anti-white hate organizations that have vehemently lobbied for “hate speech” and “hate crime” laws in America for decades, have used the purported shooting to attack “white supremacists,” a Marxist code word for any individual who recognizes their white racial identity and cares about the future of the white race.
Morris Seligman Dees, Jr. and J. Richard Cohen, the leaders of the SPLC, recently published an op-ed in The New York Times arguing that “white supremacists” must be confronted and viewed as the next target in the Orwellian “Global War on Terror,” a paradigm of American foreign policy concocted by neoconservatives and Israeli geopolitical strategists in the late 1970s that has been institutionalized in the West following the attacks of 9-11.
The SPLC has further alleged Roof was an active contributor to “white supremacist” websites, and was radicalized by “hate speech” posted on alternative blogs and websites.
“The only thing that rivals the horror of the murders is the disgusting way in which the government and media have exploited the deaths in order to advance their anti-white agenda,” James Edwards, a nationally renowned political commentator and host of the popular “The Political Cesspool” radio program, told AMERICAN FREE PRESS. “Many organizations and individuals have now been ‘linked’ to Dylann Roof, but none can reasonably be held accountable for the psychotic reaction this deranged individual had in response to reading truthful statements regarding interracial crime. My prayers go out to the families of the victims in Charleston. After the healing begins to occur it is my sincere hope that mature Americans can finally begin to have an honest conversation about race, rather than being subjected to a one-sided lecture.”
For its part, the ADL has hysterically denounced the “racism” and “anti-Semitism” contained in Roof’s purported manifesto, which has been published on the Internet, using the incident to argue that “white supremacism” poses a threat to all Americans.
The ADL and SPLC are unsurprisingly lobbying for tyrannical, un-American restrictions on speech and “hate crime” laws in the wake of the shooting, as are a number of contributors to the mainstream media.
Following the Charleston event, the elite news media, citing “terrorism experts” and agenda-driven “think tanks,” have argued that “homegrown extremists” and “radicalized neo-Nazis” have caused more violence than Islamic jihadis since 9-11. The New York Times and the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail both published articles on a study by the New America Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank, entitled “Homegrown Extremism 2001-2015,” which claimed to show that traditional white conservatives are a greater threat to the West than radical Muslim terrorists.
The Confederate flag has also become a major target in the aftermath of the alleged Charleston shooting, with various politicians and government officials, including S.C. Governor Nikki Haley (R), calling for the removal and banning of the Stars and Bars. The Confederate flag still flies at many state capitols, as well as at private residences, businesses and other buildings, in the South.
“Another victim in South Carolina has been that symbol of nobility that for decades has proudly flown over the Capitol grounds in Columbia,” said Edwards. “In Charleston you can find the graves of the crew of the H.L. Hunley, the first submarine to ever sink an enemy vessel in the history of naval warfare. Led by Lieutenant George Dixon, those brave Confederates embody the kind of heroism and valor that those who hate the South can never have.”
On a positive note, pro-Confederate rallies are happening across the South as AFP goes to press.
As the political climate continues to heat up in America, sides are being drawn. The gun-grabbers, anti-white Marxist tyrants and culture destroyers are openly waging war on traditional America and everything she stands for.
Now is the time to stand with AFP and other patriotic Americans who refuse to bow before the altar of political correctness and tyranny.

Obama’s Overt Cleansing of White America
By Victor Thorn
Five days prior to the 2008 presidential election, Barack Hussein Obama delivered one of the most destructive messages ever uttered by a political candidate when he announced his intention to “fundamentally transform” this nation. True to his words, since entering the Oval Office in January 2009, Obama and his anti-American allies have been tearing down the history, culture, customs and traditions upon which this country was founded.
This cultural cleansing not only includes state governments banishing Confederate flags from public buildings, but also calls from black leaders to “remove” the Jefferson Memorial because our third president once legally owned slaves. New Orleans Democratic Mayor Mitch Landrieu seeks to tear down a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
Other factions are demanding even more radical approaches. On June 24, former New Black Panther Party leader Malik Zulu Shabazz told his followers: “Finish the mission—kill slave masters.” The Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan recommended another line of action: “We need to put the American flag down!” Even the Warner Brothers movie studio has felt pressure to prohibit any further sales of Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia, because the TV show’s famous orange car sports a rebel flag on its roof.
Amid this backlash in which totalitarian-minded liberals seek to flush all history that they don’t agree with down an Orwellian memory hole, on June 23, this reporter spoke with Alan Rush of the South Carolina Conservative Action Committee.

In the weeks before 21-year-old Dylann Roof allegedly shot nine parishioners at a Methodist church in Charleston, Rush sold copies of America’s Racial Powder Keg at a flea market located about 45 minutes away.
When asked about the attack on specific southern-related symbols, Rush said: “Obama hates the Confederate flag. He wants to take down this flag because, by doing so, it demoralizes whites. It’s a rallying point for people all around the nation who know what this flag represents, and Obama can’t stand it.”
Rush continued this thought. “Blacks rant and rave about slavery, but it’s completely hypocritical because blacks still practice slavery on other blacks in Africa,” he said. “These are the same blacks that hate white people.”
Providing ammunition to support his claim, Rush cited a man who served as radical black religious leader Reverand Jeremiah Wright’s mentor, James Cone. Obama spent 20 years listening to Wright while attending his church in Chicago. Obama even referred to Wright as his spiritual advisor.
Rush told AMERICAN FREE PRESS: “James Cone, a communist, was the founder of Black Liberation Theology. I have a collection of Cone’s writings, and in one book he said, ‘What we need is the destruction of whiteness, which is the source of human misery in the world.’ ”
As a direct disciple of Cone via his allegiance to Wright, Obama embraced this type of anti-white hate speech for two decades.
According to Rush: “All the racial strife we’ve seen over the past few years started with Obama and his tin-pot African tribalism that isn’t very presidential. Obama’s pushing African moral superiority over what he sees as white depravity. Not only is he attacking the Confederate flag, but everything associated with our heritage.”

Rebel Flag Being Desecrated by ‘Civil Rights’ Subversives
By John Tiffany
Shaun King is a political activist of the left-wing stripe who feels white people owe something to blacks and who has money to burn. In coordination with the attack on the South Carolina church that has conveniently handed his ilk the pretext they needed, King has led the charge to dismantle white traditions and culture—perhaps on orders from his Communist Party superiors.
King got on Twitter, a social medium, and began trolling for patsies—preferably including one or more blacks—to do the dirty work of climbing a South Carolina state government flagpole and taking down the Confederate flag. He offered increasing amounts of money until he found a taker at $10,000.
Sure enough, a black woman named Brittany Ann Byuarim “Bree” Newsome, 30, took the bait and shimmied up the flagpole at 6 a.m. to steal the banner. Several policemen were on the scene, and the community organizer, who belongs to an organization called the “Tribe,” ignored orders to come down and desist from her mission to desecrate the flag.
On the way down she uttered some Bible verses she had memorized to pretend her deed was holy.
Ms. Newsome was assisted in her publicity stunt by a white renegade named James Ian Tyson, 30. Both were charged with defacing a monument and could face three years in jail and a large fine—which should be in the tens of thousands of dollars at least. It is not yet known whether King will be charged as an accomplice. He evidently promised to pay any bail fees needed as well as the “bounty” he offered for committing the criminal act.
Ms. Newsome, no stranger to troublemaking, came to national attention during the race riots in Ferguson, Missouri as the western field organizer for “Ignite NC.”
Ms. Newsome boasted: “We removed the flag today because . . . it’s time for a new chapter where we are sincere about dismantling white supremacy and building toward true racial justice and equality.”
Perhaps ironically, a pro-flag rally took place as scheduled shortly after the crime.
About 60 people attended the pro-heritage rally in front of the monument and on the steps of the Capitol Building.
Speaking to Cynthia Roldan of The Post and Courier, Ryan Hughes, 22, from North Augusta, said the nation is headed toward socialism as Confederate flags across the country continue to be removed. He said people from the South are being bullied: “We are the most oppressed group in America today. It needs to change.”
