JD Curtis links to hate site

In another case of moumentally missing the point, JD Curtis was upset recently because he felt the mainstream media were "glossing over" the idea that George Zimmerman is not white or not white enough (as if this was the most important part of the story).  Zimmerman is half Peruvian and half white American but this is beside the point.  JD linked to a site called VDARE.  

It's symbol is a white doe and the site is named after Veronica Dare the first English child born in America.  Their webpage claims "immigration policy drives whites into a minority" and that "to defend the interests of American whites" is the purpose of some of their authors.

The site is run by Brimelow who described the role of race as "elemental, absolute, fundamental." He saids that white Americans should demand that U.S. immigration quotas be changed to allow in mostly whites. 

This is how SPLC describes the site "VDARE"

Once a relatively mainstream anti-immigration page, VDARE has now become a meeting place for many on the radical right.
One essay complains about how the government encourages "the garbage of Africa" to come to the United States. The same writer says once the "Mexican invasion" engulfs the country, "high teenage birthrates, poverty, ignorance and disease will be what remains."
Another says that Hispanics have a "significantly higher level of social pathology than American whites. ... In other words, some immigrants are better than others." Yet another complains that a Jewish immigrant rights group is helping "African Muslim refugees" come to America.
Brimelow's site carries archives of columns from men like Sam Francis, who is the editor of the newspaper of the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens, a group whose Web page recently described blacks as "a retrograde species of humanity."
It has run articles by Jared Taylor, the editor of the white supremacist American Renaissance magazine, which specializes in dubious race and IQ studies and eugenics, the "science" of "race betterment" through selective breeding.
Recently, VDARE has even begun to publish the writings of Kevin MacDonald, a psychology professor at California State-Long Beach. MacDonald accuses Jews of "dominating" the "movement to change the ethnic balance of the United States by allowing mass, non-traditional [i.e., non-white] immigration."
He writes that Jews, believing "the masses ha[ve] to be deceived," frame their appeals in universalistic language. But behind that are "the Jewish agendas" of the deceivers. MacDonald also mentions "the famously heavy Jewish role" in television news.

Fake Trayvon Martin Photo

Right-wing blogs have been circulating a photo of Trayvon Martin sticking up his middle fingers.  This is not the Trayvon Martin that was murdered.  This other Trayvon lives in another city and has not been murdered.
