MONDAY'S D3 DAILY ACTION: KEEP HATE OUT OF OUR STATE!
In April 2018, VDare, a White Nationalist hate group is planning to hold an event in 2018 at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs. The resort is owned and managed by Benchmark Hotel and Resorts.
The 2018 event will feature anti-immigrant writer Peter Brimelow, Breitbart.com columnist Tom Tancredo, and writer John Derbyshire, who describes himself as a “mild and tolerant” “homophobe” and “racist.”
Civil rights groups have heavily criticized VDare for its racism and anti-immigrant rhetoric. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), VDare is a white nationalist website that “regularly publishes articles by prominent white nationalists, race scientists and anti-Semites.” The Anti-Defamation League wrote that VDare is a racist site that “posts, promotes, and archives the work of racists, anti-immigrant figures, and anti-Semites.”
The event is far enough away that we may just have a chance to keep these racists from coming to Colorado for their conference and let the whole country know that we want to keep hate out of our state!
HERE ARE SOME POSSIBLE ACTIONS:
