White Supremacist Group Holds Conference in Greensboro

A white supremacist group met in central North Carolina at a location kept secret from counter-demonstrators out of concern for possible violence.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported that the National Socialist Movement held a regional conference Saturday at a hotel on the city's west side.

The site was kept secret at the request of police, who feared violence if opponents of the movement learned where the group was staying.

The National Socialist Movement drew 50 to 70 people for a meeting meant to train members from Pennsylvania to Florida in recruiting and other growth tactics.

By mid-afternoon, about 200 college students, senior citizens and families with small children gathered on a street corner, saying they wanted to show the neo-Nazi group that they are not welcome in Greensboro.

    Ya know. There are a lot of useless groups. Black and white. (Im white). This is just another bunch of uneducated rednecks that sit around or (stand) in sheets drinking beer screamin I hate blacks,jews and whatever is not white. They have never sent 1 person they hate back to their own country. So what is the point of the group? Well, at least they look right at Halloween. They are an embarrassement. There are ignorant, undeducated people in every race with BIG MOUTHS. USELESS TO THIS SOCIETY.

    Jay, the wealthy Europeans were lazy. They were thinking, "how can we reap the greatest benefit by the doing the least amount of work?" Then they said, "oh, let's use the Africans." However, your ancestors were likely poor and destitute, so they had nothing to do with bringing Africans over. Heck, your ancestors might even had been indentured servants. :)

    I don't care for the KKK and anyone that has lived and worked on a public job has heard strong negative remarks about the NAACP and THE BLACK PANTHERS.Anyone that hasn't is either a shut or deaf.This is no argument at all.I cannot believe anyone would make a stupid statement like this and expect another to buy into it.At one time I hated blacks,I was taught and encouraged to do so.So I admit it.Now I don't,so what if Obama did?I don't think so lady,but I don't know his heart nor do you. When people can acknowledge HATE they can move along.People that don't are stuck drying up in a cow pasture somewhere causing the rest of the world to step around them to keep from having their stink on their shoes.Please document your fact that Obama hates white people.I can very well see hate document on some of these posts.He is the President of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.Let's get over it and get on with making our DEMOCRACY WORK.FOR REAL ! ! !

    Big deal, a bunch of republicans. Isn't this the same as one of those "Tea Parties" that have been getting all of the press lately? Same crowd, different clothes.

    I don't care for the KKK. But I NEVER hear any whites or blacks talk about how bad the "Black Panthers" are. And there's NEVER nothing said when they meet. And for the person that thinks it's lovely for Obama to hire all these minorities to his cabinet. You might want to look at the one that just resigned. He was black & he had admitted in the past to not liking white people. And also signing a petition saying the 9-11 tragedy was planned by the Bush administration. And this was yet another man associated with Obama; but of course Obama knew NOTHING of his past. Get real people. Your president wants to turn OUR country into a socialist country. Is that what some of you want??? Remember. Racism goes both ways. And I can tell you for a fact. Obama HATES white people. Bottom line. As for alot of people here where I live; we know what he's up to. And hopefully by 2012, the people that voted him in will have had enough of the kool-aid he has been serving & NOT put him back in again.

    To the Lady who posted B Location: washington on Aug 30, 2009 at 10:56 PM Thank GOD for people like you. I am a white male and will stand by your post,as it is sincere and provoking to the betterment of mankind. It has been attitudes and lives like this that has made the "UNITED" STATES OF AMERICA great as she IS TODAY. And for that we shall overcome any obstacle put before us.It is sickening what hateful whites have done to whites and hateful blacks to blacks.Hate is internal and external.People that are loving and Spiritual, regardless of their color are powerhouses that can move mountains and heal national wounds.These are the ELETE of our society.They are few and far between,but do exist. A thumbs up for a person of minority or majority that advances one's self economically and socially.It is the strength of diverse colors and nationalities pulling together that get things done.I thank GOD for my life and country. May all men be blessed even those that hate.

    SusieQ, please inform us of what actually did happen as you were there?Was it a National Socialist movement that met.In one of your post you wrote that there were Indian chiefs there ! And a question from a post asking why did Pres. Obama hire so many minorities? Simple ANSWER.The same reason Mr Bush did and McCaine put Sara up for Republican VP candidate.I thank GOD that America "has" a lot of strong people sticking up for it. This world has changed and the year is 2009.The U.S. has always been a country of consistent cultural change and as always some are left behind.I am sure that WHITE SUPREMACY is a thing of the past.Thank GOD, my mother a loving and faithful 75 white lady to her husband who was a white supremist by any term sure needed a break from that bigotry and dominance that was in the south.They were hateful,mean,controlling and SNEAKY.Sure you have a right to assemble.Only GOD can bring life to the dust of something dead.HE'S not going to do it!Same for any bigots. Bl or W.
