Striking back at the SPLC pt. II

Yesterday I leafleted in front of Powell’s Books downtown. It went pretty well. It’s always interesting to see people’s reactions, and that makes it rather fun.
One young man said “I can’t read.” An old woman tried to give me 75 cents. A homeless black couple asked for a copy, so I gave them one. A few moments later the woman turned to me and said “I know what you mean. I know a woman who’s worked at the same place for 12 years and only makes $7.50 and hour.” A middle-aged woman took one, turned to me and said “I thought the SPLC were the good guys.” I replied “not everybody thinks so.” One man asked me who I work for. If nothing else, I probably got some people thinking and asking questions.
Unfortunately there was no possibility of getting somebody to photograph me handing out leaflets – short of giving my camera to a stranger. Maybe next time.

    That’s quite a long leaflet, and a credit to the attention span and literacy of your community. It wouldn’t ever work, sadly and predictably, in places where it is needed the most.

    Good job. I applaud your efforts. Your are one of the rare few who will actually take some action instead of hiding behind a blog. Are you concerned you will lose your job because you may very well be called a racist? Being Jewish will probably not protect you for a charge such as this.

      Technically I can’t be fired for being a racist. But we can’t let the anti-whites define “racist” as anybody who is pro-white, or who defends the civil rights of whites. Also, I would rather lose my job and be persecuted than not live my life according to my principles. If I don’t take a stand for my principles, then what meaning does my life have?

    There’s a “watchdog” blog that monitors the activities of the SPLC:
