Towson's White Student Union Calls for Racial Separateness at CPAC

The panel was called "Trump the Race Card: Are You Sick and Tired of Being Called a Racist and You Know You're Not One?"

Members of the White Student Union, a group that formed at Towson University, caused a stir Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference during a panel on how conservatives can defend themselves against liberals calling them racist.

Scott Terry, a member of the group, suggested during the event called "Trump the Race Card: Are You Sick and Tired of Being Called a Racist and You Know You're Not One?" that the GOP would do better as "Booker T. Washington Republicans"—"united like the hand, but separate like the fingers," according to The Atlantic Wire.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Matt Heimbach, the White Student Union's founder, said that about 30 members of the group attended the panel.

K.C. Smith and KCarl Smith, two brothers from Birmingham who are black, led the panel and began with a conversation on how the Republican Party can reach out to blacks, women and Latinos, according to The Atlantic Wire.

Think Progress caught some of the exchange on video.

Heimbach was previously president of Towson University's Youth for Western Civilization, which incited controversy after members reportedly scrawled "white pride" in chalk at campus locations in early 2012. The group eventually disbanded, but later that year Heimbach began recruiting for the White Student Union.

In September 2012, he disputed that there were racist motivations behind either groups, but said, similar to the school's Black Student Union, the White Student Union would advocate for "white interests."

He claimed Towson University has issues with racism against whites. But the university declined to officially recognize the group, in part, because the group was unable to find a faculty member willing to serve as an advisor.

"The very fact that people think it's racist shows that there is anti-white sentiment out there," Heimbach said of forming a White Student Union.

".....why not create a organization to promote white interests?" There are already a couple organizations . The Ku Klux Klan and the Aryan Brotherhood spring to mind....
David Taylor March 16, 2013 at 05:13 PM
What are you going on about? They *do* have a White Student Union ... they have meetings and membership drives and everything. Maybe try re-reading the article again, slower this time. As for "white interests" - what exactly does hat mean? These guys aren't promoting anything other than white christian segregation - it seems that they want to force all of us in society to follow their racial purity philosophy (with them as the superior race of course). This isn't a cultural support group, it's the white-collar KKK. Nobody is fooled by the rhetorical nonsense they are selling you (well, almost nobody).

No. You are losing it Kongo. Six posts already today and not one mention of poop.

This is awful. With all the suffering going on in the world today, there definitely are more issues where we should be united than divided. Can we all just get along or is it truly easier said than done? Stop all the foolishness and focus on your education because you will need it and more.

They should form a group on campus concerning white interests. One of those interests that needs to be examined is why white people are constantly labeled as racists by liberals and minorities based on policy positions and not racial basis. A good example of this is when Bill Clinton was called a racist by Clyburn just because his white wife was opposing a black presidential nominee.
David Taylor March 17, 2013 at 02:56 AM
There is a group on campus already... and they are strongly aligned with the white supremacist movement. They've had American Renaissance's Jared Taylor speak and are requesting that Richard Spencer visit them to talk in the near future... "There is a difference between blacks and whites — analogous to the difference in intelligence — in psychopathic personality considered as a personality trait. ... For psychopathic personality, the mean and distribution are higher among blacks. The effect of this is that there are more black psychopaths and more psychopathic behavior among blacks." — Richard Lynn, American Renaissance, 2002 It's racist as hell dear "Merlin" - these folks have more than earned that label.... wouldn't you agree? ...(more on Spencer) http://mediamatters.org/blog/2011/09/19/the-supremacy-cause-inside-the-white-nationalis/181599

So mister Taylor, how is that any different than the NAACP having speakers that are equally offensive? Or how about Sonia Sotomayor declaring that a woman latina has better legal judgement than a white male? Or how about the statements issued by Casa de Maryland or La Raza? Actually, it is not. The difference is however that people only feign being offended because they do not act equally when condemning.
David Taylor March 17, 2013 at 07:31 AM
Merlin (as if that's your real name) - You said (above) that, "white people are constantly labeled as racists by liberals and minorities based on policy positions and not racial basis" - clearly you have been refuted and clearly these people are deserving of the label "racist" based on their stated prejudices and ignorance, not due to some "constant" liberal conspiracy you have conjured up for yourself. While it's difficult to even have a rational discussion given these rambling non-sequiturs... let's give it a try. Regarding this new direction you are taking... when did the NAACP or Sonia Sotomayor even claim that white people have racially low-IQ or are an inferior race or that they are naturally prone to be psychopaths and criminals? I suspect these false equivalencies you conjured up are just parroting of some racist nonsense you heard at a student union meeting... or maybe you really feel that these statements you allude to are "proof" of something that justifies your racism? Who knows. Importantly, you do seem to admit that these guys (and yourself?) are in fact well-deserving of the racist label based on ideas and statements, and not because of some paranoid fantasy. And I'm sorry, but your victim-mentality and these newly presented excuses won't get you a free pass here. These aren't some poor sad-sack picked-on oppressed southern whites, they are just run-of-the-mill misguided racists... "direct descendants of Confederate President Jefferson Davis" indeed.

Did anybody see the backdrop for the main stage? There was a huge painting of Jesse Helms. LOL Did CPAC burn a cross to close the ceremonies?
Merlinthesocialjusticewizard March 17, 2013 at 01:42 PM
In regards to David Taylor, you are sadly misguided and factually inadequate. When Sonia Sotomayor stated that a Latina woman was better at making legal decisions than a white male by virtue of her race alone, that is in fact a racist statement. That does in fact state that intelligence in the form of handing down legal judgements is inferior in white males compared to that of Latina females. That is racism 101, and I am surprised that you do not even understand the definition of racism itself. Now to dispel your immature and factually incorrect statement concerning whites being labeled racists by virtue of policy alone. Ever hear of Samantha Pawlucy mister Taylor? She was the 16 year old girl that was harassed by her Philadelphia school teacher for wearing a Romney/Ryan t-shirt to her class. The teacher compared that specific shirt to wearing a Klan outfit. The girl was then harassed and called a racist on facebook prompting her to leave the school. Now let us look at what happened in the justice department. Both J.Christian Adams and Ben Coates of the voting rights division were called racists and compared to the Klan for merely taking on voting right cases in which minorities acted unlawfully to impede the voting rights of non-minorities. If this issue were not so boring I could type many more instances of whites being labeled racist purely on policy positions and not on racial discrimination.
Steve March 17, 2013 at 01:43 PM
LOL and Donald Trump gave a speech where he said the US needs more white immigrants. http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2013/03/trump-white-immigrants-cpac.php?ref=fpblg Is this 2013 or 1964?

Give the nuts more ink. The nuts who call themselves Christians and spend so much energy hating. The lunatic fringe is easy to incite. Thank you patch for writing headlines that attract them to post their venom.

As for RTB, your arguments concerning Sotomayor are easily to dispel. In her career she consistently made statements that are indicative of racism. For her to state that being Latina makes her more able to render legal judgement than a white person is racist. This RTB, is based on the simple principle that justice is blind. Meaning RTB, that one's own life experiences are not relevant in rendering a legal judgement, it is the law itself that must be considered. An example of this is how a judge that was abused by a child cannot arbitrarily pass sentences on child molesters that are not supported by the law or given to them to alter sentences. Another issue missing from your argument is how Sotomayor made those statements many times then acted in a manner in the Conn. firefighter case that was not simply a mater of making insensitive remarks. As far as Steve is concerned, he is boring and blasé. He cannot refute the examples I have given of whites being labeled racist on policy decision alone so he uses the Alinsky tactics of demonizing, misdirection, and distraction. Lastly RTB, Sotomayor did not describe a diverse judiciary, she made a statement that by virtue of race her judgements were more legally correct than other races. Once again sir, that is racism 101. I also wonder why David Taylor is not posting defending the actions of the NAACP having both Jeremiah Wright and Louis Ferrakhan as speakers considering their history of racist remarks?

60 years ago if you said "Everyone has to play by the same rules", you were a radical. 30 years ago if you said that, you were a liberal. Today, if you say "Everyone has to live by the same rules", you are a racist. Progress?
Merlinthesocialjusticewizard March 17, 2013 at 03:39 PM
It is not progress Wade J, it is simply a tactic used by liberal progressives to attempt to silence opposition to policy and outcomes. For example, look at how everyone that disagreed with the POTUS's policies were cited as being racist by everyone from Jimmy Carter, to even Colin Powell. It is simply a means to an end. And that end is controlling any narrative concerning the governance of this country. An example that is laugh out loud funny Wade J is when Bill Clinton was called a racist because the Clinton Initiative was spending billions to save black lives on the continent of Africa and statistics came out showing that inner city blacks had an actual higher rate of hiv than those in Africa. How did Bill react? Upon becoming aware of such statistics he immediately shifted funding to focus on eliminating hiv in the inner cities. Yeah, that Bill Clinton, he is so damned racist he was affectionately referred to as the first black president. Yet, he was referred to as a racist by members of his own political party when it served their interests.

I wonder if any of our elected officials attended this pseudo Klan meeting?
Brandon Mariotti March 19, 2013 at 05:31 AM
Was thinking about attending Towson, but after this I may move it a bit down on my list after reading this.. I'm not black, or anything like that, but I'd prefer not to attend a university where some bigots might try to lynch somebody on campus, this is disgusting!
Merlinthesocialjusticewizard March 19, 2013 at 12:57 PM
Brandon you should seriously consider not attending a university or college. After all, colleges and universities identify you by use of student ID. The democratic party litigated and stated the the requirement of ID to gain entrance is bigoted, and disenfranchises minorities as well as the poor. Therefore Brandon, to be a man of your word you should boycott all colleges, airlines, and any and all services that require the use of ID. You should prefer to not attend services and events where the bigoted use of ID is used, this is disgusting!
Steve March 25, 2013 at 02:01 PM
I guess these knuckleheads will do anything for attention. http://news.yahoo.com/white-student-union-towson-university-conduct-nighttime-campus-123415170.html
Merlinthesocialjusticewizard March 25, 2013 at 02:19 PM
Pretty weak there RTB. The supreme court ruled in the 2008 Indiana case that requiring an id to vote is in fact NOT discriminatory because the use of identification to prevent fraud in other industries and services is broad and the industry standard. If the democratic party was actually interested in not making the elderly produce such said things, did why did Michelle Obama require id to attend her book signings and the dnc convention required such critieria? Is the dnc and rest of the party bigoted because many elderly could not afford to get an id to attend those events even though a relative may have purchased the book for them or want them to experience a political convention?
Steve March 25, 2013 at 02:24 PM
".....why did Michelle Obama require id to attend her book signings and the dnc convention required such critieria? " More Rightwing myths from the usual sources.
Steve March 25, 2013 at 03:24 PM
Are they going to patrol the campus in their pointy hats and robes?
David Taylor March 25, 2013 at 03:38 PM
Nice one :) I suspect that they would if they weren't such cowards.
David Taylor March 25, 2013 at 03:39 PM
You aren't very coherent most of the time... are you on medication?
David Taylor March 25, 2013 at 03:41 PM
"The very fact that people think it's racist shows that there is anti-white sentiment out there," Heimbach said of forming a White Student Union. Not racist at all... yeah right. These cowardly little drama queens don't deserve all the attention they are getting... "black predators prey upon the majority white Towson University ... The virtue of white Christian womanhood is under attack at Towson University ... Only through reliance upon our brothers and sisters united in Christ and shared blood can we hope to be ready to fend off packs of thugs " http://towsonwsu.blogspot.com/2013/02/black-crime-wave-continues.html
Merlinthesocialjusticewizard March 25, 2013 at 04:48 PM
Media matters covered the issue, and even slpc made comments about going to book signings are not the same as voting. If they had not asked for ids and social security numbers ahead of the event, this would not have been a story. But unfortunately it was an issue that several liberal sources commented upon. More leftwing drivel from the usual sources, and when I type sources to mean plural, it actually is a plurality of names.
