Little Europe's Are Coming To Your Town

by Nicole Nichols

First they wanted the Pacific Northwest - now they want to be our neighbors. When hate comes knocking in our communities, we can send them away with a strong message that they aren't welcome there. But, what happens when hate hijacks our neighborhoods and makes itself at home?

White Power symbols may soon adorn the houses in your cozy little corner of the world while tattooed and pierced Skinheads provide you with a little security. Oh! And that Hip-Hop you kids are listening to - it's going to be replaced. The old folks will be doing the polka while the kids bang heads to Hatecore!

The times, they are a changin' - and you aren't going to like it one little bit!

".... the right of our manifest destiny to over spread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given us for the development of the great experiment of liberty and federaltive development of self government entrusted to us. It is right such as that of the tree to the space of air and the earth suitable for the full expansion of its principle and destiny of growth." (John L. O'Sullivan)

Historically, the idea of Manifest Destiny – that which is meant to be because of the ‘divineness’ of the United States – has been used by politicians and other leaders to justify and promote expansion across the continent thus providing a sense of ‘mission’ to the citizenry (Wikipedia). The idea of America being pre-destined to take that which will further the agenda of those in power seems to still be the order of the day and claiming that the ends justify the means is quite well accepted by the populace. The message of Manifest Destiny hasn’t been lost on the Separatists and racists in the neo-Nazi realm either.

While guys like Kevin Alfred Strom and Erich Gleibe have been trying to affect a transmutation of the racist right into stalwart and upstanding appearances, others have been diligently working behind the scenes to bring their Utopian Society dream to some sort of fruition. Sometime back, Volksfront, the neo-Nazi organization that spawned Kurtis William Monschke, David Nikos Pillatos, Scotty James Butters, and Tristain Lynn Frye who bludgeoned a schizophrenic, homeless man to death in Tacoma, Washington on March 23, 2003, announced their plans to erect what they call a “Folk Homeland” on five acres in Medford, Oregon that was purchased from members of the Aryan Nations.

As the stated purpose or goal of many racist organizations is the separation of the races it is not at all unusual to read or hear their stated views and ardent wishes for a “White Homeland.” It is, however, a little unsettling when you first see the actual attempts at procuring such a homeland reaching even marginal success. Those on the racist right are generally written off as “fringe” elements and viewed as incapable of presenting any real threat to our American way of life. When even a modicum of goal attainment is realized by these “fringe” players it gives us pause and a reminder to engage in a reality check.

The acquiring of five acres of land by one group of racists from another group of the same is certainly nothing to be concerned about. With all of their pie-in-the-sky plans to erect family living space, schools, an “Administrative Center,” a social activities center, and a “A European-American Museum and History Center” might require just a little more than five acres and probably a lot more in the way of financing than the whole collective of Volksfront members will earn in a lifetime. Additionally, schemes for establishing an area strictly for whites have been offered by such notables as David Duke and Harold Covington, among others, in the past with little or no evidence that such a thing would ever get off the ground.

Yet, there are some events shaping up that might warrant closer inspection by us as well as the government. The recent flap that has caused us to take Bill White to task in Virginia over his eviction of minorities from properties that he has acquired has caused us to focus a little more on what is really transpiring in this area. Close examination has yielded a movement that is gaining a little in momentum and one that should give all of us a wake-up call.

H. Michael Barrett is no newcomer to the racist movement. Having served as a body guard to Robert Lloyd of the National Socialist White People’s Party in the late 60’s and as Dr. William Pierce’s first street activist, Barrett knows his way around the often treacherous extremes of the racist right. When Pierce’s secretary, Earl, who the main character in the “Turner Diaries” was named for, decided to open a book store, it was with the help of co-founder Barrett that the mail order business “White Legion Books” was started. In 1972, Barrett became David Duke’s National Organizer. In the 1980’s Barrett started writing articles about his thoughts on building white communities, a scenario that he dubbed “Pioneer Little Europe.” Today, it seems that H. Michael Barrett is promoting his ideas not only in theory, but in actuality. He has defined a “PLE” thusly:

“A PLE is defined as a conscious White community - initially possessing greatly contrasting views among its residents - which comes to dominate a geographical area. It is an entity which our opponents and competitors have made no provision to account for within the "legal process," thus it has even less reality to them than the old White community. As such a PLE is in itself immune from all forms of legal liability, without making a mockery of the law. That is not to declare that a PLE is immune from repression, only that there is nothing in the law to prevent it from coming into being, eventually evolving into higher levels of legal recognition, and striving for the self determination of its residents by any means conscious Whites will support. A Pioneer/Little Europe is a generic term for any local community where Whites live in close proximity to businesses which offer cultural facilities and services, most of whom openly support their political revival. More advanced than the old Little Europes and White communities, Pioneer Little Europes are based on a study of the organizing principles shared among the more modern political communities that continue to dismember Whites geographically, culturally, and politically.”

There is nothing unusual about finding advertisements and postings in cyberspace for “White roommates” or “White families to take up residency,” etc. Generally speaking, you experience a little chagrin and move on. It is, however, disconcerting to say the least to witness the circumvention of all of our housing and discrimination laws and the obvious duping of America that is taking place with alarming regularity. In a country where the violation of civil and human rights has been so carefully monitored lest we experience our historical past coming full circle, in a society where diversity is encouraged and multiculturalism is embraced – the idea of segregated communities is more than reactionary it is philistine.

The prospectus accompanying the idea of “Pioneer Little Europe” is daunting at best. Many of us are apt to say – “So they want their own space separate from the rest of us – so let’s give it to them!” The problem is, however, that according to this plan, the space that they want is often right in the middle of the rest of us. Unlike the plans of old where they wanted the entire Pacific Northwest, now they want areas within our cities. They want to drive out minorities, take over businesses and move their Nazi attitudes next door.

The plan is quite elaborate. But, the plan also requires a working together of individuals of varying persuasions and ideologies – something that certainly has never experienced much success – ask Billy Roper. First, the group must decide on a location that is suitable. If a particular area within a city is chosen then the Nazi’s will scope out the area and begin to procure housing. They do this through purchasing houses or apartment buildings – or through what they term “Renters Blitzkrieg,” which amounts to neighborhood overthrow.

According to their prospectus, this is the same kind of “tactic” that was utilized in the Civil Rights Era that led to the White Flight that so many communities experienced. They believe that through inundating the area with neo-Nazi’s minorities and others not sympathetic to their beliefs will flee leaving more vacancies for other Nazi’s to fill. Additionally, the various shops and small businesses in the area whose owners do not share the Nazi dogma will pull up stakes and cheap-sell their business which the Nazi’s will purchase and run.

A suggestion is made that “Advance Scouts” be sent into neighborhoods to find “cheap clusters” of rentable houses:

“Before giving the signal for your own land rush to begin, however, have advance scouts examine the cheapest clusters of rentable housing in your area, because the first wave of Whites isn't going to be choosey. This is very much like bringing relatives from the old country, so the less expensive it is for everyone the better. If you have middle class qualms about this, and that's understandable, try to get pass it.”

Citing the rapidity with which Haight Ashbury was transformed into a mecca for hippies, Barrett claims that “community building is actually one of the fastest ways for any group of people to experience the exhilaration of seeing some of their values implemented, as each day's victories lift the spirit and accelerate the critical mass of those who long felt as if they were "waiting for Godot."

Barrett also schools would-be community builders in how to answer the questions of those who are hesitant. He tells them to be honest with prospects and tell them that there are no promises or guarantees – even to the point of telling them that unless they are comfortable and believe that the plan makes sense, they shouldn’t come. If asked if this is all part of a secret plot, they should respond in this manner:

“Again be straightforward, telling them that building an open community requires explaining the dynamics publicly. How open each individual will be after they arrive will depend on personal preference, but past examples suggest we'll be closer to each other.”

The prospectus is laid out in rational (well…for them) terms even urging that once a community is established the residents should be patient with the other whites who live nearby and might be critical, claiming that once we see how well their community functions we might be “won over.” The sinister underpinnings are, however, still there.

So, one has to wonder how all of this will play out. Considering that the various factions of the hate groups out there are warring and sometimes tearing each other apart and many individuals are engaged in personal battles it would seem that such a plan would never get off the ground. But, it has made a little headway and that is precisely why we and certain groups from law-enforcement are monitoring the situation. While, we believe that there is very little for any of us to worry about – we are still going to remain vigilant.

It has been rather amusing and, at times, downright funny watching the travails of this group trying to bring their project to fruition. As with the attempts of so many of these people to achieve mainstream status, the building of all white communities has its’ moments of hilarity. Stormfront has dedicated an entire message board to this and just reading some of the posts is enough to put you on the floor.

Late in the year 2002, Todd Findley saw an opportunity to make some money. He entered the Stormfront board and suggested a “Real Estate Investment Club” be formed. There was a little discussion among a couple of members and he appeared to be energized. Using the screen name “Buster1488” he began to post regularly. Eventually, he built a website calling it “European American Heritage Foundation,” and he started advertising urging others to become part of the white communities that he was building. With all of the bluster and flim-flam of a true Florida realtor, Findley began to promote his own version of “Pioneer Little Europe.”

Operating out of Bunnell, Florida, European American Heritage Foundation seems like an above-board operation on the surface. The name of the organization notwithstanding, they claim to offer a whole host of services with the amelioration of the homeless situation as the guiding principle. Findley claims to have achieved non-profit status. And that is where it all starts to break down. Throughout the website of EAHF, no mention is made that their services are for those of European descent only. Yet, when Findley pitches his cash-cow he is quick to note that this is precisely who will benefit. In 2003, Findley made the following statements:

The EAHF will be allowed to take donations that are tax right offs just like the salvation army, this will benefit our community greatly as others can see that the donations are going to people european american decent.

EAHF will help people of European American Decent become home owners, build up businesses, education programs for children and adults, senior resource programs, vet and homeless outreach programs and yes community development programs.

The EAHF will be asking for grants and loans from the us gov and other orgs that give funding to nonprofits such as the EAHF, these funds will go along way in helping people.

In the near future our website will be up and running and one area which you should look into is the sponser a child program, this is where you can send in your childs picture and a breif description of why people should sponser that child. This program will be used to help send your children to private schools, college and or for home schoolers supplies.

The EAHF will be looking for people in every state of america who can become state affiliates so if you are of a kind heart, sound mind and intrested in making a real differance to all european american people than email me through sf.

The EAHF will be reaching out to other ethnic orgs like the polish american club or the italian american club etc etc to form bonds with these groups to hold events, raise funds, and brain storm for the future of european americans everywhere.

[Let me interject that the spelling and punctuation errors were all Findley’s.]

Findley is also quick to state that this is “not a racist organization.” Yet, the tale of the tape says differently. When a news reporter for local TV Channel 9 wanted an interview, Findley was ecstatic. Mass postings to the Stormfront message board appeared letting everyone know the time of the interview. Crowing “WPWW Flashed All Over Orlando TV” Findley was really hyped that they were getting so much publicity. The lead-in headline was:

Local Charity Denies Having Ties To Racist Organization

Of course, the interview didn’t go quite the way Todd Findley had hoped. On June 26, 2004, the news room at WFTV in Orlando, Florida aired the interview asking Findley if the name “Euorpean Americans” means only Caucasians. Findley knew he had to think fast since his organization has non-profit status. His response: “everyone has some European in them, even African Americans. (Are you laughing yet?) The next question that he was hit with dealt with his posting on a notorious racial website. His response:"I don't go to any white power websites. [I] go to websites that talk about every day issues that whites have to live with."

Of course, the news station wasn’t buying this consequently they posed a question about building all white communities and asked if this is what he was attempting to do. Todd must have been very uncomfortable by this time and his response was certainly not what any of his White Nationalist buddies wanted to hear: “No. It doesn't matter what color you are.” A response that he would later be asked to clarify.

The astute reporter for WFTV asked for the names of any minority members of his organization and Findley quickly gave up two names and phone numbers – both bogus. He also invited the WFTV crew to meet him at a construction site in Flagler County where they would witness “his mostly minority clients clearing the land for their dream homes.” When the crew showed up, no one else did. Findley explained that they had all decided to work on another day.

By this point, I couldn’t help but think that Todd Findley was quickly starting to sound like Hardy Lloyd – the Creator who was completely out in left field – but he, at least, is suffering from Asperger’s Syndrome. As far as anyone knows Findley has nothing to blame his actions on. Did he honestly think that the interviewer would believe any of this? Finally, Findley decided to speak the truth when he admitted to using the screen name “Buster1488.” Perhaps he believed that the numbers would not have any significance on the reporter. He should have thought again. What the numbers stood for was quickly related to the viewing audience.

Of course, after the members of Stormfront had seen this debacle, Findley had a lot of “splainin’” to do. Conducting damage control can often be risky business…risky that is to most of us. But, when those you are trying to convince want so much to believe you – as was the case with the WN’s, it’s really a piece of cake. Within a few hours of the interview, Buster found himself having to explain – especially about the statement regarding color and this is how he handled it:

“The whole goal of the org is to allow the unwanteds to be in servitude to us instead of the jews for the next 100 years, one way to do this was to hand out mortgages as if they were candy.

”We want the unwanteds to become home owners because they will owe us millions of dollars in the end that is why I did not lie to the reporter when I said I dont care what color you are I will help you build a house. Because im going to slap a great mortgage on it and im going to hire great men and woman and pay them very high wages to build these homes for you with your sweat.

”The goals here are to put 20-60 folks into business or high paying jobs so they will feel comfortible in giving 10% of there earnings back to our org in the form of donations, all money comes from the unwanteds lol.

”The message that I wanted to put out to the average white folk was look im a business man who is white and im proud or my heritage and im not afraid to admit it and at the same time Im not pushing any nazi stuff in there face because im not a nazi im an avg person like them.

”My phone has been ringing off the hook from people calling with positive things to say.

”Our forty year goal is to buy huge acres of land and build a european style village with farm land to feed people, shops , condos, apartments over looking the court yard where you can watch your children play and go down and eat in the courtyard in a safe enviorment.

“…We found a way to make millions of dollars using the same legal tactics the jews are using and we are doing this with unwanteds own cash.”

“as a nonprofit we are required to help everyone and hell if I can put a jew or black in debt owing me money for the next fifty years thats a big plus too, so why not help...”

This might have gone a long way to appease the majority of the Don Black and David Duke’s emasculated minions, but we can assure you that it didn’t sit very well with the NAACP who has been watching this whole mess very closely. Nor, has it done much to assure Findley that the non-profit status that he was initially so proud of will be in existence this time next year. The other positive that has emerged from this interview is the further validation of the gullibility of the racist right.

[As an interesting aside, Findley changed his screen name the day after the interview from “Buster1488 to Busterrr.”]

It is interesting to note that when one poster questioned Buster on the buying and selling of notes, Findley had this to say:

“Hi sparrow in one of your post you said that we are selling the note to cover our expenses and a little profit, we do not make a profit on these homes at all.

”We basically are selling the notes to buy more building material for more homes, the cost of building material is over 40,000 dollars per house built so thats why we want to sell two notes at a time so we have the funds to be able to build more homes.”

So, which is it? ““…We found a way to make millions of dollars using the same legal tactics the jews are using and we are doing this with unwanteds own cash,” or “…we do not make a profit on these homes at all?” Only the flim-flam man knows.

Findley claims that there are numerous Pioneer Little Europe’s coming together in Florida. And for all of his protestations to the media, Findley is, in fact, trying to build all-white communities. Days after his lies were aired, Todd Findley posted the following messages on the Stormfront website:

“We need WN`s to come and live in the houses as well as invest in the mortgages.”

”If you know of a family or single person that is a wn and needs a home in the state of florida please have them contact us.”

”If you are intrested in holding a first or second mtg for a wn family please let us know”

“Hi we are looking for investors who would be intrested in loaning $25,000 for construction to perm loan.

”The house when built will be worth over $120,000 dollars, we have all the building materials and put down a sizeable downpayment for the land already, so we basically have put in over $50-60k of our money into the project, but we are still in need of $25k to pay for some of the contractors that will be needed.

”This project we can go to a bank or mortgage company to get but thought it would be better to try and keep the money and control in white hands for a change we will see how this works out.

”We are hiring only wn to construct the home so A the loan ends up in white contractors hands, b the family who ends up in the home is a wn family, and the loan orgiantor should be a wn as well and the company making it all possible is a wn owned org infact.”

“Are you a single mom who needs a fresh start? or do you know a good single mom who needs a fresh start?

Well if you are looking for an opportunity here is one you just might like, we are looking for a single mom who would be intrested in moving into a house we have RENT FREE.

In exchange we need this person to run a few small businesses that we own. or want to get up and running but simply do not have time. You will need to be able to use a computer and have good typing and verbal skills (unlike myself)

You will be paid a salary of $1000 plus rent free, you will need to pay your own utilties and should be a non drinker to light drinker at best No druggies need apply.

You must have someone who can vouche for you that you are a WN in every sense of the way.

Your duties will include internet recruitment, you will be in charge of our ebay sales department, and in charge of our new business which is a small newspaper nothing fancy just a local paper where people can read about whats going on in the area and classifieds etc.

These businesses are really only going to take you about 6-8 hours a day, you make your own schedule.”

And just prior to the television interview, Todd Findley had been advertising thusly:

“Hello everyone we are looking for a family or single men or woman to move to florida to help in a project we have going on. You will get free rent for 3 months in a 3bdrm 2bath home in a nice semi-country home in florida. You must be able to help clean the home up and help with some repairs, You must also be willing to help in our chairty program we have established to help white men and woman become home owners. If you want the house longer for 3 months then rent will be 400 per month after the first 3 free months. pm me for more details.”


“Please pass this around to all forums if you can please.

”Calling all skinheads calling all skinheads are you ready for the most incredible challenge of your life?

”A un-disclosed group of people are looking for skinheads, rebels, strong minded single male and female folks, for what you ask?

”This group of people is looking to pay your rent, help you get good paying jobs and is willing to help you buy homes, or start a business.

”You must be willing to attend once a month meetings,and act as a neighborhood security force a peaceful guardian angels type of security force.

”You must be willing to help in removing rats, drug dealers, and un likeables.

”You will be helping to establish white communitys all across america to form a co-op of safe havens where whites can come and live in affordable housing, raise familes , establish businesses, etc etc.

”If your a big tough guy or gal who can give a year or so of there life to forming such neighborhoods then this is your chance to shine.

”We will not give out location of city or state , you will only know the departure day one month in advance. If you want to be a volunteer pm me through sf buster1488.”

Part of a secret plot? Of course – only the plot is certainly no secret. Attempting to drive people out of their homes and small business owners from their rightful places in order to create their “Utopia” would only be phase one. Circumventing the law comes easy to racists and their groups. It probably would to us as well if we believed that the government should be overthrown. Among the things that provide us solace in all of this is the knowledge that they will never be able to pull this off on any large scale. They simply aren’t cohesive enough to do so.

One such example of their inability to work and play well with others – even when their goal appears attainable – is the story of Mike O’Donovan from Boston. He had heard about this Pioneer Little Europe charade on Stormfront and that there was one developing in Springfield, Missouri. After numerous posts by the odious “Samuel Adams,” who seems to have considerable knowledge about homemade shotgun shells and how to tell if your phone is tapped, inviting people to join him in this endeavor, Mike buys a bus ticket. With promises from Sam to pick him up at the bus station, he arrives and finds no one there. He makes several calls both to the home and business of “Sam” and no one ever answered the phone. Apparently, he hangs around the bus station for awhile then eventually has to get a motel room for the night. Two days later he returns home.

When Mike’s brother posted a warning to others not to go to Missouri, Samuel Adams explained himself saying “i saw the guy at the bus station and it doesnt look as if he could have passed a piss test. we are removing self professed white nationalists from our ple area right now with drug habits. if you are white but are strung out on drugs or high this makes you as bad as the blacks. i could be wrong and he could be a stand up guy but i dont thing that i am wrong even tho you will post that he has never done drugs and is the youth minister for his church or some other excuse.”

As you can well imagine, the battle was on. Through discussion it came to light that a mother and her children had experienced much the same treatment in Missouri. All of this simply exemplifies why we have little to worry about when it comes to our communities being hijacked. The lack of cohesion among these groups and individuals works greatly towards keeping them from being any kind of force to reckon with.

There is one group out there, however, that we would kind of like to see succeed. The Aryan Socialist Empire has a sterling solution to the problems that we currently have with racists in this country. Their stated goal:

“Our solution is to construct an island in international waters outside the jurisdictions of any other nations. This is a non-legal solution in that it is neither legal nor illegal, as the construction site is located outside the jurisdictions of all other nations. Initially, the island will be large enough to accommodate a small population. Later, the island will be expanded as necessary.”

Well…I think I would even contribute to the fund. Imagine all of the racists being placed on an island somewhere in the middle of the ocean! We could all make wagers on things like who would be the recipient of their hate? After all, they will have to find someone or something to focus on. Or, we could place bets on how long it would be before they start killing each other. Given their ingenuity and mental prowess – you know, all that “white superiority stuff” – I wonder how long it would take for this “constructed” island to sink right back into the ocean.

In all seriousness, however, none of us wish to see a heavy concentration of hate coming to our cities and towns. None of us are willing to give up one inch of our communities to those who want to run a racist agenda. Regardless of how small we think the threat is, we have to take a stand. We have to say an emphatic no to those who wish to hijack our neighborhoods. Therefore we, as Citizens Against Hate, must remain vigilant and we must educate others as to the motives of the racist right. We must also vow to report every suspected intrusion upon our towns to the appropriate authorities. And we must resist their message at every turn.>TO CONTACT NICOLE
