AAH THANKS PALM BEACH REPUBLICAN LEADER FOR DISALLOWING RACIST FROM SERVING ON GOP EXEC. COMMITTEE
AAH CALLS ON LAW ENFORCEMENT TO INVESTIGATE STORMFRONT THREAT AGAINST SENATOR OBAMA’S LIFE
(West Palm Beach, FL) Yesterday, August 28th, white supremacist Derek Black, an active participant in Stormfront, the neo-Nazi website run by his father Don Black, was disqualified from serving on the Palm Beach County Republican Executive Committee. Black was elected to the committee on Tuesday the 26th.
According to the Chairman of the local party, Sid Dinerstein, Black “was not a duly qualified candidate for the Executive Committee and did not meet the qualifications required by the Republican Party of Florida.” As well, Dinerstein stated that Black “will not be allowed to use our good name to shield [his] reprehensible activities.”
Black has been involved in the white supremacist movement since before he was a teenager, running a race hate section for kids on Stormfront when he was a mere twelve years old
. Last year, Black attended the Ku Klux Klan’s National Knights Party Congress, broadcasting the event for Stormfront.
Stormfront brings together and provides a forum for members of worldwide hate movements. The content on Stormfront, many times, is of a violent nature. Just yesterday, one of Stormfront’s members stated that he hopes United States Senator and Presidential candidate Barack Obama gets assassinated. Another member commented, “All it would take is one person.”
Stormfront is currently engaged in attacks against Dinerstein
for being Jewish. One of the attackers is Don Black, himself.
Americans Against Hate (AAH), armed with info concerning Derek Black’s extremist activities, was amongst the first to inquire about Black’s newly elected position within the Republican party.
AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman stated, “We praise Palm Beach Republican Chairman Sid Dinerstein for taking a stand and not allowing someone like Derek Black to serve the party. Black is part of a vile and dangerous movement that should never be granted power in our country.”
“We pledge our continued support to both Republicans and Democrats in driving this venomous element out of our society. As well, we call on law enforcement to investigate Stormfront’s threat on Senator Obama’s life.”
