Profile of “Illinois United” and 2010 Hitler Birthday Celebration

Last weekend a handful of fascists gathered to celebrate Hitler's birthday in an attempt to form a regional counsel of white nationalist groups called "Illinois United". While their numbers are small and previous attempts to organize publically have fallen flat, some familiar names have resurfaced. Let's take an in-depth look at some of the major players of this new organization.

Speaking at this year's Hitler gathering is James Logsdon who was just released from prison for the second time. He has been with imprisoned Matt Hale's World Church of the Creator for many years and is currently the main contact for the "Creativity Movement" as it is currently named. Since he is trying to jump back into the game, here's his full info:

Now looking at another speaker at last weekend's birthday celebration Patrick Leyland from the northwest side of Chicago. He has been attending "Illinois United" meetings and suffered defeat at the four-man "White Pride World Wide" march last month. From our intelligence files:

We've already humiliated Philip Anderson of the Illinois National Socialist Front a number of times but since Bill White's main man is still propping himself up as a prominent organizer of "Illinois United" here's his info once more:

Then we have the old and washed up racist Arthur Jones who once proclaimed "Homosexuals have to realize they have a place in society, and that place is back in the closet", describing his group "America First Committee" a "patriotic, anti-Communist, white racial idealist organization". After decades of racism and homophobia, this proud Vietnam veteran is still on the nazi speaking circuit so here's his info:

Phone: 773 586 1433

Bringing us to another relic of racist history is Eli James, "pastor" of the Christian Identity(CI) movement. We hoped he would have called it quits after antifa shut down their attempted conference in New York but he popped back up on our radar having attended "Illinois United" meetings:
Eli James
Cell phone: 312-852-4441
  • Main organizer for the "Church of Anglo-Saxon Israel"
  • Attends "Illinois United" meetings and spoke at the 2009 and 2010 Hitler Birthday celebrations
  • Affiliated with other neo-nazis from Aryan Nations and National Alliance who were responsible for shooting up a Holocaust museum and various murders, assaults and robberies
Also we can't forget Soren Renner, a self-described White Nationalist who runs the racist blog calling to "RISE AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF GOD". He spoke at the 2009 Hitler Birthday celebration (which was held at P.J. Klem’s Restaurant at 8000 Ogden Ave in Lyons, IL 60534 (708) 447-4343). Soren lives and hangs out in Rogers Park in Chicago and was recently spotted at the April 15th 2010 Tax Day Tea Party.

Other attendees for this year's Hitler celebration include "Tim" from the Imperial Klans of America (, "Matt" and other members from the Chicago National Socialist Movement(,, the Illinois "Aryan Terror Brigade" (, and "Josh" from Blood & Honour (

Although we are not responsible if anyone acts on any of this information, we want to remind people how effective militant confrontations are in disrupting white power groups and driving the racists out of town. A warning to those who would follow the footsteps of imprisoned Nazi leaders Matt Hale and Bill White, you are not anonymous and you will not be able to organize in our communities.

If you have any other information on these or other active fascists in your area, please contact us at

Racism and the Tea Party Movement

tea party pictures documenting racism and bigotry

As the crisis of capitalism intensifies and more and more people are not able to meet basic human needs such as health care or housing, people are looking for solutions outside the established political parties and politicians. There is a danger that right-wing fascists will attempt to take advantage of people's disenchantment with the political process and try to push people farther to the right into racist hate, scapegoating immigrants and people of color for the crisis that the rich ruling classes themselves created.

The "Tea Party" movement was engineered by right-wing strategists and pundits at Fox and other "news" corporations and has managed to stir people into a flag-waving frenzy of wingnuts including religious ultra-conservatives, Ron Paul supporters, anti-choicers, greedy free-market capitalists, nazis, libertarians, Alex Jones conspiracy nuts, and anti-immigrant Minutemen vigilante types. While it is possible that many people within the Tea Party are well meaning and just plain ignorant, there is a explicitly racist and homophobic element that must be confronted. Being an overwhelmingly white populist movement It is no surprise that nazis and white supremacists have attended and even organized Tea Party events around the country. Even here in Chicago nazis Paul Alfich(Volksfront, Oak Lawn), Renae Rachelle DePerio(Portage, IN) and Melissa Jordan(Stormfront Meetup, north side) attended last year's April 15 Tea Party.

Here are some articles that document racism in the Tea Party movement:

On April 15 the Tea Party is demonstrating at Daley Plaza and Chicago-area organizations are planning counter-protests:
Protest The Tea Party Bigots on April 15. This is OUR City -- not Glenn Beck’s or Sarah Palin’s.

On April 15, tea party activists will rally at the Daley Plaza. Incited by Fox News goon Glenn Beck and failed vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, these fake grassroots activists are useful tools for corporate America’s political agenda – including opposition to public funding of any kind for human needs, from health care to education.

While claiming to be for “small” government and limited spending, they cheer on U.S. war spending at the current rate of $2 billion dollars a day – almost 60% of the federal budget. They support the Obama administration’s wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. They have no problem with spending even more to expand war into Somalia and Yemen, threaten war against Iran, or interfere in Latin American countries such as Honduras and Venezuela.

Bigotry saturates tea party protests. In March, tea partiers called Georgia Rep. John Lewis a "n****r. Lewis, a civil rights movement veteran viciously beaten by a white mob in 1961, was outside the  U.S. Capitol building as protesters began chanting "Kill the bill, kill the bill" at him. When Lewis told them "I'm for the bill," people chanted, "Kill the bill, n****r." "It was a chorus," said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.), who heard the chants. "In a way, I feel sorry for those people who are doing this nasty stuff -- they're being whipped up." Another protester spat on Cleaver, who is also Black.

Tea partiers have called gay Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) "f****t" and taunted him with "lisping" chants. They have systematically hazed sick and disabled people trying to testify at healthcare meetings, and their anti-immigrant and anti-Latino signs cross the line into open racism. Sarah Palin herself has referred to indigenous people as “Arctic Arabs,” and said “So Sambo beat the bitch” when Barak Obama defeated Hillary Clinton in the Democratic Party presidential primary.

Chicago is a city of African-Americans, immigrant workers and union members. Large and politically active Mexican, Puerto Rican, Arab, Muslim and LGBT communities make their homes here. We have a long tradition of fighting for progressive political change -- from the Underground Railroad and the Haymarket Martyrs to massive marches for immigrant rights and undocumented people. Let's stand together on April 15 against these right-wing extremists.

The M20 coalition calls on all progressive-minded people and organizations to join us to protest the tea party bigots on tax day. Don’t let the bigots take over our city.
