White Nationalists (AKA NAZIs) Raise Millions With Tax-Exempt Charities

White Nationalists Raise Millions With Tax-Exempt Charities

The federal government has allowed four groups at the forefront of the white nationalist movement to register as charities and raise more than $7.8 million in tax-deductible donations over the past decade, according to an Associated Press review.

Already emboldened by Donald Trump's popularity, group leaders say they hope the president-elect's victory helps them raise even more money and gives them a larger platform for spreading their ideology.

With benevolent-sounding names such as the National Policy Institute and New Century Foundation, the tax-exempt groups present themselves as educational organizations and use donors' money to pay for websites, books and conferences to further their ideology. The money also has personally compensated leaders of the four groups.

New Century Foundation, a Virginia-based nonprofit, has raised more than $2 million since 2007 and operates the American Renaissance online magazine, which touts a philosophy that it's "entirely normal" for whites to want to be a majority race.

-----

Taylor, whose tax filing says he received $65,000 in compensation in 2015, said he isn't raising money to enrich himself or his group.

"We hold it in trust for the white race," he said. "We take this seriously. This is not something we do for fun or profit. This is our duty to our people."

The Montana-based National Policy Institute is run by Richard Spencer, who popularized the term "alternative right" about a decade ago. The so-called alt-right is a fringe movement that has been described as a mix of racism, white nationalism and populism.

Spencer's group raised $442,482 in tax-deductible contributions from 2007 through 2012. More recent fundraising figures for the group aren't available in online tax returns, but Spencer said Trump's candidacy already has boosted his group's fundraising.

Spencer hosted a postelection conference in Washington that ended with audience members mimicking Nazi salutes after Spencer shouted, "Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!" Spencer has advocated for an "ethno-state" that would be a "safe space" for white people.

[font size = 4]Richard Spencer is the happy go lucky Nazi that has brought the wrath of Storm Front to the small community of Whitefish, Montana - specifically targeting the peace group "Love Lives Here" and those with Jewish-sounding names. Residents were doxed, and pictures were posted of their children, along with where they could be found.[/font]


The Daily Stormer article was filled with anti-Semitic slurs, and yellow stars reminiscent of the ones Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis were superimposed on photographs of the six: a lawyer, a real estate agent, a boy identified as their child, two rabbis and an activist.

The police in Whitefish, Mont., said Tuesday they have stepped up patrols and are working with the FBI after a neo-Nazi and white-supremacist website listed the names and contacts of local Jews, calling on readers to “take action” against them.

Whitefish Police Lt. Bridger Kelch said police in the northwest Montana town were taking the measures after the website, The Daily Stormer, on Friday published phone numbers, work locations, email addresses and photographs of six Flathead County residents. Several of those targeted were from Whitefish, where Sherry Spencer, the mother of the white nationalist leader Richard Spencer, lives and owns a building that has been the subject of protests.

Bullock cancels event addressing Neo-Nazi threats after security concerns reported

Gov. Steve Bullock canceled a press conference in Whitefish today. Bullock had been scheduled to address neo-Nazi threats in the area, but canceled apparently in response to "security concerns," the Whitefish Pilot reports.

The event was planned in response to recent conflicts involving white nationalist Richard Spencer and his mother, Sherry Spencer, who lives in Whitefish. Those conflicts led to the posting of personal information about several local Jewish residents on a neo-Nazi website.
