The National Socialist Movement takes on ENG 401 at Arizona State University

- After Action Report -

March 3, 2015

Controversy immediately erupted, when the Arizona State University offered a course titled, "English 401: U.S. Race Theory & the Problem of Whiteness." Students enrolling in the course will read, "The Possessive Investment in Whiteness," "Critical Race Theory," "Everyday Language of White Racism," "Playing in the Dark," and "The Alchemy of Race and Rights." Although the syllabus was not made public, the reading list clearly indicates a strictly one sided and profoundly anti-white agenda. Outrage, discussion and activism have put this class and the university in the cross hairs, and for good reason.

Following a meeting, attended by so called anti-racist supporters of Lee Bebout, an assistant professor of English, at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ, the attendees decided to collect signatures of faculty, students and residents for a petition and hold a public display at the Tempe campus on March 3 at 11:30 am.

“When they use that speech to promote violence against an individual or group of people in a public space or online, that should not be allowed,” Pieter Turley, a justice studies graduate student and vice president of Local to Global Justice said. Local self titled "anarchists" and left wing agitators also made plans to attend the demonstration. Of course, they showed up.

Campus staff and students claimed to have been threatened by the National Youth Front, despite a lack of any concrete evidence. Apparently, literature distribution constitutes a threat and not a Constitutionally guaranteed right. To the best of my knowledge, there's no police investigation, nor have any arrests been made. In reality, it was the side of the so called "anti-racists" that were the ones promoting violence and not with words, I might add.

At 11:30 am , Myself, Cpl. Thora Jaeger, several supporters and John Hess, of the National Youth Front, gathered at the corner of College Ave. & University Dr. to exercise our First Amendment rights, in a peaceful fashion. The National Socialist Movement stood in solidarity with the National Youth Front. As a member of N.S.M. Media, I recorded video and took photographs of the day's events.

I saw plenty of irony and hypocrisy, as these people condemned racism, while supporting a class that singled our an entire race of people and identifying them as a "problem." We did not promote violence, however, ASU Associate Professor in Justice Studies, Robert Poe, did verbally advocate violence, while one of his groupies took it to the next level and charged at N.Y.F.'s John Hess, while shouting profanities.

During a recent "teach in" Robert Poe stated, "I advocate violence against racists who choose to politically mobilize." It makes me wonder how many more violent loons the Arizona State University has created, through their violent anti-white indoctrination.

Arizona State University is a taxpayer supported public university, and this sort racially centered course has no legitimate place in a curriculum. In my opinion, A.S.U.'s administration has some explaining to do. That's one thing, Robert Poe and I can agree on (although, for different reasons). Imagine offering a “Problem of Blackness” class and the guaranteed fallout from that? "Why are Whites no longer entitled to their own racial and cultural space? Why must we share everything with other ethnic groups, whose hostile intent towards us is so blatantly obvious?"
