William Saturn: Bob Whitaker Resigns from American Freedom Party Presidential Ticket

The following was published by William Saturn at IPR on April 7th, 2016:

Longtime political operative Bob Whitaker has resigned from the 2016 presidential ticket of theAmerican Freedom Party (AFP) over the party’s softening language and explicit support for GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

“You’re fighting the good fight,” Whitaker wrote in a letter informing AFP chairman William Johnson of his decision, “I just don’t think you’re very good at it.”

Whitaker is known for coining the phrase “White Genocide” to describe the declining percentage of Whites in the United States.  In March, in an effort to be “more diplomatic” with the media, the AFP Board decided to replace the term “White Genocide” with “physical, administrative removal of Americans of European extraction.”  In addition, it asked members to use the terms “white advocates” or “advocates of European heritage” in lieu of “White Nationalists.”

“I’ve never had this happen,” says Whitaker, “I’ve been in campaigns for fifty years, and I’ve never seen anything as screwed up as this.”

Whitaker originally had been the party’s vice presidential nominee but moved atop the ticket in July after the resignation of blog editor Kenn Gividen, the original presidential nominee.

For some time Whitaker has expressed disappointment with the party’s backing of Trump to the detriment of his own campaign.  Party funds have been used for robo-calls supporting Trump.  During an interview with American Third Party Report back in December, he revealed, “I don’t think the [A]FP really supports me one way or the other.”

The AFP has ballot access in Mississippi. Safety Specialist Tom Bowie of Maryland is currently the Vice Presidential nominee.

From WhitakerOnline.com, April 4th, 2016:

As Bob stated to Johnson, “this is not a sudden decision”.

During the March 26th AFP Board meeting, Bob told Johnson and the AFP Board that their proposed Trump cabinet idea was “childish and amateurish”, “total kindergarten”.

The past few months Johnson and the AFP seem more focused on promoting and spending money on peasant Trump’s campaign instead of Bob’s.

“I’ve never had this happen. I’ve been in campaigns for fifty years, and I’ve never seen anything as screwed up as this.”

Below is our side of the audio from the March 26th Board Meeting where we are discussing their proposed Trump cabinet:
March 26 Board Meeting

Johnson’s email less than 24hrs after the board meeting:
“To: Bob Whitaker,

I stand ready to follow your council. No more ineffective approaches. Here is the release that Tom Sunic will send out.”

“No more ineffective approaches” but here’s the Trump Cabinet you said was “total kindergarten” that Tom Sunic will send out since you wont, Bob.

The AFP’s approach seems to be focused on getting media attention, any media attention, instead of getting a consistent message out there and doing what WORKS.

Bob is a professional at knife edge politics, but rather then listening to the professional, the AFP board abandon Bob and his expertise for the likes of Jared Taylor, Tom Sunic and Kevin MacDonald, each of them advising the AFP to drop the most effective meme for our cause to date, “White Genocide”.

“It is important to make waves and let them know we are here. BTW. Let’s be a wee more diplomatic with the ms media. Instead of using the right word “ white genocide” let’s use “ physical, administrative removal of Americans of European extraction” ; instead of “white nationalists” – lets use “white advocates” or, or “advocates of European heritage.” etc. I know it does not sound right for us, but that’s the name of the game in pc DC and Brussels. I am sure JD Team would appreciate it. Send the pr to him. Let’s stick together now and forget our minor divergences.” – Tom Sunic

“I agree that “genocide” is too strong. It sounds like people attacking us with machetes and pitchforks. I think simple “dispossession” is better. Also white nationalism sounds pretty stern. I think white advocacy sounds less scary but says what we want to say.” – Jared Taylor

“I agree. If you say genocide, people roll their eyes. It’s not a good label to use in a sound bite.” – Kevin MacDonald

Bob’s note to Johnson:

Your note to Laura said that while the Party hasn’t a dime for my campaign now, those radio ads will be something!

The radio ads, of course, are months off.

You will not give me any information about how these wildly successful ads for Trump are actually doing.

We peasants get no info on how your other fund raising is going.

You know, even when recommending my first book, the National Review crowd always assumed anybody with a Southern accent was an idiot.

I do not want my ads, if they finally come up, to be written by you or one of your heroes.

So it would be better, while we’re still friends, for me to withdraw from our theoretical place on the AFP ticket.

You have no idea what BUGS is about, but our one big goal was to get “White Genocide” and some other terms to go viral.

Once people hear white genocide there’s no going back to a comfortable use of “diversity.”

We have succeeded in our main aims. I thought I might help Trump somehow by using the free speech cowardice of Republicans, but it’s not my problem now.

So best of luck.

You’re fighting the good fight. I just don’t think you’re very good at it.

All the best.

Bob, Tom and Laura.

Second note to Johnson:
I appreciate your dedication, Mr. Johnson, but I spent years dealing with the snobs at National Review and I am just too damned OLD to take it any more.

When Huffington asked Taylor about the Whitaker for President campaign, he said, “I was not awayyah that there WAS a Whitaker for President.”  Your folks are STILL fighting against white genocide.

I hear from the Board every cliché about BUGS, “It’s tiny”– it was US, not YOU, that Trump retweeted. We have had a HUGE impact.  But I hear the sniping, loud and clear.

So this is not a sudden decision.

I went through it several times, especially when Rusher and I forced the Reagan crowd to go for the “Wallace Democrats” vote, which suddenly became the “Reagan Democrats” that all the snobs were always all for.

Buckley for me was “Country and Western Marxist.”

You are a good man, but I simply cannot take this knife in the back and snob attitudes the way I once could.

I’m Too Old to Grovel

I am writing on my seventy fifth birthday, so the reason for my deciding to refuse the American Freedom Party nomination is timely.

One of biggest sacrifices I had to make throughout my life for the sake of power was my dignity. I was always the guy the National Review and Republicans crowd laughed at because I was right at home dealing with what they considered dirty old working people.

Intelligence Ivy Leaguers had the same attitude to my being able to go out in the bush and rally those minorities they loved so much publically.

I did a lot and took that scorn as the price of what I was doing.

If there was a budget, as there often wasn’t, their phone calls took precedence over saving lives, just as trips for AFP Board members’ trips somewhere are great, but my paying a pittance to my staff represents a giant sacrifice on their part.

But I have decided I am just too damned OLD to take this crap anymore.

We went viral with white genocide, then the Party decided that Donald Trump’s campaign might need some more toilet paper, so Mistah Taylor took over the robocalls.

The Huffington Post asked Lord Taylor, “What about the Whitaker for President campaign.”

He replied “I was not awayyah (that’s “aware” to us peasants) that there WAS a Whitaker for President campaign.”

They wanted me to stay on the ticket. They said they wanted me because of my expertise.

Bless their hearts, they wouldn’t know political professionalism if it turned purple and danced in the streets before them.

I understand that the real Lunchioneers on the Board, the ones who can raise money for their groups, want to ditch “white genocide.” They do not raise money using something effective in real power politics.

The real reason they feel they need me is because one candidate has already quit on them this year, and me an Tom going might hurt them.

But, as you can see from Lord Taylor’s familiarity with the AFP’s campaign for me, they really have nothing to lose.

American Freedom Party leader attends Donald Trump rally in Memphis

James Edwards, the host of the weekly white nationalist radio program, The Political Cesspool, attended a Donald Trump rally in Memphis, Tennessee on February 27th. Edwards, a former member and candidate of the America First Party, serves as a director for the American Freedom Party and is a member of the party’s leadership. The following was published on the American Freedom Party’s website on March 2nd: 

I attended a Donald Trump rally in Memphis on Saturday night as a fully credentialed member of the media and enjoyed the unique experience of being able to air a live broadcast of The Political Cesspool Radio Program from inside the press pen while the event was in full swing. (Next Saturday’s show [March 5] will feature a previously taped 20-minute interview with Donald Trump, Jr.) It was a very memorable day and I’d now like to take my audience behind the scenes.

After receiving my credentials from the campaign, I was instructed to get there early for set-up and to go through security. At approximately 1:30 PM I arrived at the Millington Regional Airport, where the rally was to be held inside one of the hangars. There was already a long line of supporters waiting to gain entry even though I was on-scene nearly five hours before Trump ascended to the podium. With rock music blaring and people tailgating in the parking lot it felt very much like a college football atmosphere. There were plenty of vendors hawking Trump merchandise, but the most impressive display was a concession stand offering the “Make America Great Again Trump Burger.” Naturally, this monster featured 100% American beef and 100% American cheese. Other items being offered included the “Ted Cruz Burger” (which featured Canadian Bacon), Bernie Sanders Pork Nachos, and Hillary Clinton SOFT drinks — that had been scrubbed clean.

I was fortunate to be able to bypass the crowd and long line by parking in a VIP area designated for members of the press, which was located directly behind the hangar. When I got out of my car I almost immediately ran into Trump beat reporter Katy Tur of NBC News. Katy first became known to me a couple of months ago after watching an interview she did with Trump.I must say though that she comes across as having an overall pleasant personality on television, and she was most certainly a sweetheart when we talked. Interestingly, she is the former girlfriend of Keith Olbermann, who once referred to me as “the worst person in the world” on his unimpressive and now thankfully canceled television show.

The time seemed to pass quickly. After picking up my press badge and clearing Secret Service, it felt as though the crowd was already starting to gather inside the venue. My co-hosts, Keith Alexander and Eddie “The Bombardier” Miller, were already waiting for me by the time I set foot inside the hangar. The three of us, along with a TPC correspondent, brainstormed for a few minutes and developed an outline for our radio broadcast that night. As the crowd continued to build, it was nearing time to go to work.

As “game time” approached the energy in the room became palpable. There was a sense of excitement that was undeniable inside of a rusted, concrete hangar that looked like it had been built during the Cold War to shelter Memphians if Cuba ever decided to drop the bomb. It’s amazing how such an unassuming location can transform into the place to be when filled to capacity with the right people. And filled it was. A crowd of at least 10,000 packed inside a space with no chairs — and no complaints.

A view of the crowd from my vantage point inside the press pen long before the start of the event

As vigorous as the crowd was in advance of his arrival, Trump sent them into an absolute frenzy when his personal 757 came in for a landing in full view of those assembled. This man knows how to make an entrance. The plane rolled to a stop right in front of the podium before the door opened and out emerged New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and the Republican front-runner. Christie provided an admirable warm-up act during which he comically savaged “Little” Marco Rubio.

Trump on screen, James Edwards

Trump himself took over the mic just minutes before 6:00 PM Central Time and gave his patented stump speech. The crowd roared when he asked them who was going to pay for the wall and nearly made the ground shake when he told them the wall was going to get ten feet taller if Mexican officials continue to use foul language.

Believe it or not, I was actually able to hear very little of Trump’s speech because shortly after 6:00 my radio program went live on the air and I had to connect to the studio. However, it was a pretty incredible experience to be able to broadcast live from the press pen while Trump was simultaneously making his remarks. Being able to paint a verbal picture of the scene for my audience was a real novelty and something that will definitely be remembered. If you’ve not yet listened to our most recent show, please check our broadcast archives.

A highlight of the evening was when a scraggly protester attempted to disrupt President Trump’s remarks by holding up an unoriginal sign that read, “Make America HATE Again.” The crowd erupted when a hero emerged to rip the sign to shreds before security could escort the vanquished Social Justice Warrior to the parking lot. The press ate up the confrontation and scribbled furiously to cast this malcontent as someone worthy of praise.

Quite frankly, the media is wetting itself in reaction to Donald Trump’s surging candidacy. So-called reporters and journalists must feel absolutely impotent to find that, after spending decades attempting to brainwash people with a constant inundation of unnatural ideas, their best efforts have resulted in a colossal failure. As the media watches its grip slipping away, they have become desperate to paint Trump as a “racist.” It’s the same old, worn out card they always play. I wrote a book about it.

Trump has risen to the top of the polls by simply stating he will enforce our immigration laws and by showing he is a real man who won’t cower to political correctness. By throwing out some red meat to the starving base of the Republican Party, he has firmly positioned himself to execute a hostile takeover the GOP. Thank God!

The only downer was having to work in such close proximity to my “colleagues,” I really do despise the press and have gotten to the point now where I rarely give interviews anymore. They’re contemptible and obnoxious creatures. Rather than take advantage of having room to maneuver in the pen, I chose rather to stick close to the fence and mingle with the crowd during breaks in my program.

After he wrapped up a stem-winder, the Donald worked the ropes for a while before climbing back aboard AirTrump. Minutes later, he was rumbling back down the runway and into the Tennessee sky.

I handed the show over to my co-hosts during the second hour and took pictures with a few fans who had been patiently waiting for me. The last woman who approached me had driven in from Nashville and remarked that she, too, was a Southern Baptist who agreed with me on the situation plaguing our church. I believe that I gave her comfort by assuring her that Trump was going to win Tennessee and carry the evangelical demographic throughout Dixie.

James Edwards - Holding my show notes while touching base with my producer

After a short exchange, I autographed her campaign sign and encouraged her to pray that Trump becomes our next Charlemagne.I must admit that this rally lived up to my expectations. I’ve been saying for years on the radio that the majority of Americans fundamentally agree with us on the issues and that the neocons were generals of a phantom army. I am being proven right. Our people just needed a viable candidate and they’ve identified Trump as that man. There is no doubt that Trump’s populism and nationalism is galvanizing our nation and may change the course of American history for the better right before our very eyes. After getting my start in politics with Pat Buchanan in 2000, Donald Trump will be the first Republican nominee that I have ever voted for.

Buchanan was a man ahead of the times and Trump is his vindicator. With family men like myself, it can be argued that Trump is now growing the party because there isn’t a chance that I would have ever considered voting for any of the other cuckservative losers bidding for the White House under the GOP banner this year. A fellow traveler remarked to me in private that the ingredient in Trump’s historic rise that makes it so delicious is that it’s nuclear powered. It is unstoppable. It is impervious to foot-shuffling, complaints, whining, hysterical cries of “racism” and so-called “white supremacism.”

Trump supporters don’t care, and there is something undeniably infectious about Trump’s masculine attitude. He is a prototypical alpha male.We don’t have to agree with everything Trump says, and he doesn’t need to agree with everything we say. In fact, it wouldn’t bother me if Donald Trump himself denounced me and all of my friends. He can denounce me until the cows come home so long as he follows through on his pledge to build a wall and ensures that the aliens self-deport. I am supporting him because immigration is the single biggest problem that our nation needs to solve. Demographics is destiny. He doesn’t have to support me.

The bottom line is that Trump is the only candidate who gives us a chance at having a fighter who will put America first. He’s the only candidate who isn’t owned and operated by special interests. With Trump, America has a chance to regain her identity.

A new day is dawning and it’s a beautiful sight to behold.

Vote Trump.
