But another reason for ineffectiveness could be the existence of false flag operatives within our ranks. People who have been positioned within the immigration reform movement to do just enough to get the public riled up, but who always manage to "pull their punches" just about the time we approach critical mass.
One of those groups who may be a false flag operation is ALIPAC (Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee). Run by William Gheen, ALIPAC has a reputation for making a lot of noise on the Internet. One would think they are among the leaders in the fight against illegal immigration. But every once in a while, they pull a stunt that casts aspersions upon their genuine motives. And William Gheen has given us renewed cause to question his motives with this open letter he sent to Dr. David Duke and Stormfront, originally posted on this thread. The letter is cross-posted in its entirety below:
The following message was sent to you via the Stormfront Contact Us form by William Gheen.
This message is addressed to Mr. David Duke and the Stormfront white nationalist community.
This message is being sent to you via open national release because in the past your organizations have posted our material and ignored our repeated written requests for you to remove our materials.
I am instructing you right now to remove the copyrighted information produced here at ALIPAC that you have mounted on your websites regarding our Tea Parties Against Amnesty and Illegal Immigration scheduled in 53 cities across America on November 14.
Our website says clearly that these events on Nov. 14 are for those who “share our non-violent and non-racist multi-ethnic and bipartisan support for secure borders and immigration enforcement.”
THAT CLEARLY EXCLUDES YOU, Mr. Duke, and you as well, Stormfront.
Many of our event organizers and attendees are black and Hispanic. They are welcome, but you are not. All event organizers are under instructions to remove any of your people, along with any La Raza, Brown Berets, MS-13, MALDEF, LULAC, & Stormfront people detected trying to stick your noses into these gatherings.
You are free to say and support what you want, just not at our expense.
The Tea Party, 9/12, and Immigration Enforcement movement is going to be very upset with both of you for trying to play the role of spoiler and for trying to force your way in on our events and force all of these Americans that are opposed to your positions into association with you.
I spent eight years of my life working in civil rights campaigns and working to elect minorities to public office and I am not going to have my good name forced into association with the likes of you.
How dare you do this to anyone? It is bad enough that Soros funded groups like the SPLC and ADL which go around falsely accusing good American men and women of being racists all the time and now you jerks do something like this?
David Duke and Stormfront, you are acting in the best interests of the SPLC, ADL and millions of illegal aliens at this very moment. It would not surprise me if those outfits had you guys on the payroll. You should ask them for a check, if you are not already receiving one for the service you are currently providing the illegal alien lobby by stealing our materials for your website.
Take our event materials down right now and get away from our events on November 14 or I swear before the nation I will do all in my power to file lawsuits against you for damages and redirect as much of my time from fighting against illegal immigration groups and direct my attentions to fighting you.
If you have not removed materials related to ALIPAC's Tea Parties against Amnesty within a few short hours of this release, then we will launch new initiatives that show the public how your white nationalist outfits are assisting the SPLC and ADL in their efforts to malign any American standing up against illegal immigration as a racist.
I am personally appalled that you would attempt to damage and degrade our hard work to unify Americans of every race in the fight against illegal immigration. Furthermore, it is ludicrous that your websites now promote our Tea Parties when you have notoriously attacked me and ALIPAC for working with people that are Jewish, black, and Latino!
I have dedicated my life to trying to save the United States from enemies foreign and domestic, and if you continue to assist those who are flooding our nation with illegal aliens, then you are going on my list of those to fight.
Take our materials down NOW! Otherwise, you can place the name William Gheen and ALIPAC firmly on your worst enemies list for the rest of your lives.
All organizers and event attendees, please keep a careful eye out at our events, and if you detect any of these unwanted, intrusive, and illegal alien assisting Stormfronters or David Duke minions at our events, please notify the organizer who will ask the police to remove these racists from our midst.
President, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC
Director, Tea Parties Against Amnesty
First, what in hell does Gheen mean by "copyrighted material"? Press releases? That's all I've seen ALIPAC churn out, and a press release can hardly be considered "copyrighted". Empty threats.
Second, Gheen says his movement is for those who “share our non-violent and non-racist multi-ethnic and bipartisan support for secure borders and immigration enforcement”, and further says "THAT CLEARLY EXCLUDES YOU, Mr. Duke, and you as well, Stormfront". On what basis does that exclude Dr. Duke and Stormfront? Both are non-violent. And multi-ethnic does include "white", last time I checked.
Third, Gheen accuses Dr. Duke of "assisting" the ADL and the SPLC. If this is so, those groups have an unusual way of showing "gratitude" for that assistance. They have consistently maligned Dr. Duke and Stormfront as being "white supremacist" and have falsely linked them with street gangs like the Soldiers of Aryan Culture and Silent Aryan Warriors who are nothing more than misfits who use white nationalism as protective cover for personal hooliganism.
As a matter of fact, Mr. Gheen himself has been tagged as a "racist" by the SPLC (which shows how ludicrous they are). Perhaps Mr. Gheen believes that if he publicly and hysterically "dissociates" himself from Dr. Duke and Stormfront, Morris Dees will give him a pat on the head, toss him a couple of Scooby snacks, and grant him "papal-style" absolution from racism. It doesn't work that way, though. The Anti-Hate Cartel does not have a vested interested in toning down their rhetoric; they would forfeit publicity and funding if they didn't constantly up the ante about "racism".
But the giveaway is this statement by Gheen, saying that he would "redirect as much of my time from fighting against illegal immigration groups and direct my attentions to fighting you [Duke]". So in other words, Gheen considers a single white civil rights activist like Dr. Duke to be a greater threat to America's sovereignty than 12 million illegal aliens? This guy is an egomaniac at best, and a nutcase at worst. Or it could be the sign of a possible false flag operative.
This is not the first time William Gheen has engaged in this irrational behavior. In July 2006, he tried the same strongarm tactics against a now-defunct unit of National Vanguard in North Carolina which was promoting immigration reform.
There are numerous other immigration reform groups who know who the real enemy is, and who have a demonstrated capability to remain focused on the real enemy. Don't squander your time and resources on ALIPAC; this organization exists only to gratify William Gheen's selfish pride and vain ambition. Direct your resources more productively elsewhere, particularly to those political candidates who pledge to eliminate illegal immigration through enforcement and attrition. Rep. Jason Chaffetz does more to fight illegal immigration in one day at Congress than William Gheen has done since he founded ALIPAC in 2005.
