White Man March Comes to Tempe Town Lake March 15, Um, Maybe (w/Update)

And, according to Google cache, this seems to be the case.

The Tempe Police Department says it is taking seriously the possibility of a clash between anarchists and white-power devotees.

"We are aware of the both events," TPD spokesman Mike Pooley told me of the march and counter-demonstration, "and we are currently planning for them."

Hunt's description of what might transpire in any given locality sounds amorphous to say the least.


Hunt writes:

If there are only a few people in a location, they can hang up a banner, hand out fliers, and strike up conversations. If there are more than a few people, they could organize a lightning march (a non-violent flash mob) to make a statement and then disperse before any anti-white protestors or police show up.

"With larger groups, the demonstrations could be akin to the torch marches of 'the Immortals' in Germany. Even if someone wants to stay inside on that day, they can help our efforts by posting about the White Man March in comment sections and message boards.

Which begs the question, what if white people gave a march and nobody came?

That would be the best outcome, natch. Otherwise, the smell of pepper spray could be wafting over Tempe Town Lake this Saturday should things get hairy.

Update March 15, 2014:

Hey, where all the ofays at?

The "White Man March" was a giant dud. Local anarchists showed up to counter-demonstrate at Mill Avenue and Rio Salado Parkway this Saturday afternoon. But white-pride types themselves were a no-show.

Apparently, there was some activity in other states associated with the effort, if you count hanging the occasional banner or sign that reads "Diversity = White Genocide."

But the fella who supposedly was organizing the Tempe event didn't even bother to do that much. Currently, the guy's Facebook page is down. And he's not returning phone calls.

(I don't feel comfortable giving his name here due to the slippery nature of identity on the Internet. Particularly, since I haven't talked to the guy.)

I reckon white supremacists/nationalists just ain't what they used to be. Which is a good thing, though the anarchists -- about 20 to 30 when I got there -- seemed disappointed they didn't get to kick some fascist ass.

One small mystery: The Tempe Police Department's PIO Mike Pooley told me that the TPD never made contact with the organizer. However, local videographer Dennis Gilman spoke to a TPD lieutenant, who told Gilman that the TPD had spoken with organizers, and the event was cancelled.

Not that it matters much, I suppose.

BTW, there were plenty of white folk -- both male and female -- lining up for the music festival that was going on at Tempe Beach Park.

But they were there to party, not to whine about minorities.

In my home town, we have a festival called Africa in April. Its not just centered on African American stuff, but fun stuff from Egypt, Morocco, Ethiopia, South Africa, Rwanda, Nigeria, Congo, etc. All are welcomed to attend. No one is made to feel left out. I know I wouldn't mind learning more about European Cultures if given a real opportunity.

I don't think anyone should be made to feel ashamed of who they are...White, Black, Red, yellow. Instead of making it all about the color of skin...Make it a cultural European thing high lighting food and cultural traditions of European nations maybe include nations that no longer exist: Armenia, Prussia, Basque, etc.

Astonishing!: "Diversity = White genocide" (???!) And 'Merica's a white country? Absurd! However shameful its exploitative inception, however repulsive the revered "forefather's" perception of "Manifest Destiny," however unjust & horrific our history of white conquest, genocide & enslavement, the US has ultimately become the "great melting pot," the world's pilot program for the possibility of the Peaceful & Loveful coexistence of beautiful, loving & lovable people from a great variety of rich cultural backgrounds, the opportunity to learn from one another & reach together greater heights of humanity as we recognize our common, fundamental desire to be happy and secure, the possibility of being a shining example of what is possible for humanity. Diversity = Wisdom, Acceptance of Others, Love. I believe in Us.

No human can stop the mixing of races. It is what the Creator wanted. We own nothing on earth not even ourselves. People should stop thinking about skin color and simply get the good things in life. http://ow.ly/uDnjX

It is very hard to understand that we have all been lied to all our lives,and most people would rather just go on believing the lie...

Like when a spouse cheats on another,many will wanna deny it and not accept that its happening...

No surprise...Arizona has become a magnet for the social misfits of America one sees them in the Minute men, Neo-Nazi's......many in these movements eventually show their true natures.....Forde/Bush now on death row, Simcox accused of child molestation, JT Ready murder/Suicide....the list is long and wasted energy mentioning the lesser ones! The good thing is these fringe lunatics are self destructive human beings, eventually  they end up in prison or move on to some place else to be social pariah's, misfits and we normal folks in Arizona can only pray they move on soon!

In the first place ,your very wrong about the dying breed, we're alive and well and hold the majority so I don't know where you get your thinking. As for slave owners,no! I'm not talking about slaves at all. As a matter of fact, Blacks have it better in this country then any other place in the world and that's fact . All I hear from Blacks is that the White man is holding the Black man down but to get one too exlpain that rhetroic is just about nill . This is out of context but I hope you get some meaning out of this !!!

Amen Ashley - very well contrasted- what is becoming is it only seems to be ok to apply the first amendment to minority causes/groups, but not everyone? When whites become the minority in this country (probably in this century), then will it be alright for them to exercise the same first amendment rights?

This passage does not support your claim but in fact affirms that that all humans are descended from the same ancestor and the design the apostle in this affirmation was to convince those such as the Greeks that he regarded all as brethren... I am embarrassed to call you a member of my family and am glad you have shown your true colors

Lakeisha, you are Wise beyond your Years. Thanx, for the Uplifting Words of Wisdom and for providing us with some "Food for Thought" Your Photo displays a very lovely and Beautiful Young Black Lady and I think we need more Young Blacks (Men and Women) who do not Advocate Hate along with every other Nationality, including US Whites. Kudos to Lakeisha, for not trying to Incite a Race war..

Hey psst....

There is about to be a white on white war going on in Ukraine and Russia. With whites killing whites. So who do you support? Whites of the east or whites of the west? Talk about white on white genocide in the 21st century. That's a shame isn't it?
