White supremacists in the United States are up in arms over the refugee crisis in Europe. They believe that the settlement of refugees from the Middle East and Africa in European nations will destroy white European culture and transform the continent. They are also hoping that the refugee crisis will push Europeans to embrace white nationalism.
In addition, anti-Semites within the white supremacist camp are promoting conspiracy theories that blame Jews for the crisis and accuse Jews of spearheading Europe’s demise.
The American Freedom Party (AFP), a white supremacist political group, posted an article by Joshua Bates, a self-identified white nationalist. Bates called the refugee crisis an “invasion” and asserted that “Europe clearly needs a swift boot to the face, and perhaps even to suffer tragedy, if that is what it takes to disturb its complacency and force it to fight back.” He added, “The rapacious and ungrateful invaders will do much of the dirty work for us through inevitable attacks on our culture and people.”
Like Bates, Jared Taylor, head of American Renaissance (AR), a white supremacist online publication, said in video on the AR website, that Europe was hastening its demise if it continued to accept refugees. He argued that white Europeans who welcome refugees don’t understand what they’re doing. He claimed, “They are giving away their culture, their heritage, their identity, their country. Kindness to strangers is cruelty to their own children and grandchildren. Europe will learn or Europe will die.”
Anti-Semites directly blame the Jews for encouraging non-white immigration to Europe. Patrick Slattery, who often provides commentary on anti-Semite David Duke’s website and Internet radio show, argued that Jews want Muslim immigration to Europe even if they’re fearful of anti-Semitism. Slattery asserted, “What really matters to Europe’s Jewish leaders is that millions of Muslim immigrants will make Europe unlivable for Europeans. Because what’s bad for the Europeans must be good for the Jews.”
Kevin MacDonald, an anti-Semite who runs The Occidental Observer, an anti-Semitic online publication, also claimed that Jews have self-interest in bringing refugees to Europe. He argued, “As always, the policies advocated for European countries are couched in terms of Jewish attitudes and interests, not the legitimate interests of Europeans to retain their cultures and demographic status.”
MacDonald added, “From the perspective of Jewish organizations and most Jews, Israel, but not Europe, is absolved from pathologically altruistic behavior toward refugees — pathological in the very real sense that this behavior compromises their legitimate long-term interests. “
AFP posted an anti-Semitic article to its website that alleges that Jews are forcing the refugees on the West. The unnamed author adds, “Genocide happens quickly when jews [sic] are steering the ship. And up until today they continue to advocate for open borders and amnesty, seemingly unwilling to stop until there are no more Whites left.”
White supremacists and anti-Semites are obsessed with the idea that the white Western countries are experiencing a white genocide. They are using the refugee crisis to promote that idea.
