Callout to Confront INSF 'White Pride World Wide' March in Chicago

UPDATE: Download the flyer: (English JPG, Spanish JPG, or Quarter-page Printable PDF) and also call the hotline at 773-980-6013 for day-of updates about the action.

On March 21st, 2010 the Illinois National Socialist Front is planning to march in Chicago for what they call "White Pride World Wide". South Side Anti-Racist Action is making plans to confront the march to let them know that they are not welcome in our city.

March 21st is recognized as International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination because of the massacre of demonstrators demanding an end to apartheid in Sharpesville, South Africa in 1960. However in 2000, neo-nazi and white nationalist organizations came together to attempt to reclaim March 21st as "White Pride World Wide" day against "multi-racial supremacy".

The Illinois National Socialist Front is a neo-nazi organization primarily based in Peoria and the suburbs of Chicago, some of which are former members of Bill White's American National Socialist Workers Party. Over the past year they have organized a variety of events including nazi barbeque recruiting events, a speaking event celebrating Hitler's birthday, a rally against the opening of Holocaust museum in Skokie, a Belleville protest of "black-on-white hate crimes", and more. They have shown efforts in working with other hate groups such as the National Socialist Movement and are attempting to gather regional support for the White Pride march in Chicago by posting information to websites such as Stormfront and Vanguard News Network.

Besides the activity of neo-nazi hate groups, fascism is still alive in many forms across the US from attacks on immigrant communities to homophobic hate crimes. Even in Chicago, racist graffiti has been seen very recently - an indication that even in Obama's America, racism is far from being over with. The INSF's intention to march in Chicago shows that they are growing bolder and aren't go away unless we take a stand.

South Side Chicago Anti-Racist Action is calling out for other groups inside and outside of Chicago to stand with us against fascism. Join us to confront the National Socialist Front's march on March 21st!

Este es un llamado para confrontar al INSF "frente nacional socialista de illinois" y su manifestación "orgullo blanco en todo el mundo" planeada para el 21 de marzo en chicago, el grupo de Acción-antiracista del sur de chicago esta planeando confrontar a esta marcha para dejarles saber que no son bienvenidos a nuestra ciudad.

El 21 de marzo es considerado como el día internacional de la Eliminacion de la Discriminación Racial debido a la massacre de manifestantes demandando el fin del apartheid en sharpesville, en sur Africa en 1960; sin embargo en el 2000,grupos blancos nacionalistas y neo-nazis se unieron en un intento de reclamar la marcha del 21 de marzo como el "día del orgullo blanco".

El frente nacional socialista de Illinois es una organizacion neo-nazi primordialmente ubicada en Peoria y los suburbios de Chicago, algunos son ex-miembros del grupo Partido obrero socialista nacional americano de bill Whites, durante el ano pasado organizaron una variedad de eventos y comidas para reclutar nazis, celebraron con platicas el cumpleaños de Hitler, hicieron una protesta encontra de la apertrua del museo del holocausto en skokie, y también una en Belleville de crímenes de "odio de negros contra blancos" y muchas cosas mas, ellos han hecho esfuerzos por trabajar con otros grupos de odio como el movimiento nacional socialista y están intentando juntar apollo regional para la marcha orgullo blanco en chicago por medio de información puesta en paginas de internet, como stormfront y la red de noticias vanguardia.

Aparte de la actividad de grupos neo-nazis, el fascismo todavia esta vivo en muchas formas en todo estados unidos, desde ataques a comunidades inmigrantes, a crímenes de homofobia, de hecho recientemente en chicago se ha visto graffiti racista, una indicación de que ni en la america de obama, el fascismo esta muy lejos de que se acabe, la intención del INSF de marchar en chicago demuestra que están creciendo y no se iran alamenos que nos levantemos contra ellos.

El grupo Acción Anti-racista del sur de chicago esta haciendo un llamado a otros grupos dentro y fuera de Chicago para unirnos encontra del fascismo, unite a nosotros para confrontar al marcha del frente nacional socialista en marazo 21.

Chicago Nazis poster January 2010

South Side ARA has put together a poster with pictures and info from Chicago-area Nazis. This list was compiled and published on 1/17/2010 and is just a small sample from our intelligence files. If you were spared from this edition, it does not mean we don’t know everything about you.
These beautiful subjects before you are some of the many self-proclaimed Nazis in Illinois. Some are from Chicago and some are from the surrounding suburbs. A few are members of such groups as the National Socialist Movement, the Creativity Movement, the Illinois National Socialist Front and Volksfront. If you see these mindless bastards at a show, on the streets or anywhere else, please make sure they are met with hostility and/or confrontation!

Fascism, Democracy, and the Struggle Against Capital

An excerpt from an article published at the Chicago Chapter of the Imaginary Party documenting recent Chicago antifa activity:

... Following the imprisonment of Bill White and the disbanding of the American National Socialist Workers Party (ANSWP), Illinois remained relatively quiet after the ANSWP’s last event, a protest against an Elie Wiesel speech at St. Xavier University. But during the current crisis, neo-Nazi elements have been gaining in strength. Some former ANSWP members regrouped to form the Illinois National Socialist Front (NSF). The Illinois NSF has been having monthly barbeques throughout Illinois, drawing as many as thirty attendees to each barbeque. They held a rally with the NSM and Klan members at the end of September outside of St. Louis, one in Skokie in April, and a couple of flyering events on St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. In Chicago, local Nazi punk gangs have been attacking people of color, immigrants, and queers. Even though they remain quite powerless within the current situation, they are organizing always with the intention of becoming a constituting force that posits law.

In September of 2008, a counter-demo was called against the ANSWP’s demo against Elie Wiesel. A shouting match ensued, there were a lot more anti-fascists then fascists, and in the end, the Nazi’s van had its tires popped.[2] All in all, liberals and the police neutralized any revolutionary Anti-fascist efforts; free speech won the day, and a message of anti-hate prevailed. Perhaps the Nazis were influenced by the vandalizing action of some person(s), but more likely left with a sense that they can safely demonstrate in Chicago. Over the summer, the NSF attempted a demo at the International Socialist Organization’s national socialist gathering, Socialism 2009. With only a few members present, and a crew of hooligans ready to meet them, the Nazis simply went home.[3] In November, some anti-fascists convinced Phillip Anderson, leader of the NSF and another member to come visit Chicago on the grounds that they were interested in starting a Chicago NSF Unit. Naturally, the NSF members got the shit beat out of them, and even better, because they were seen pulling a knife, they got arrested and everyone else got away. And finally, also in November, David Irving, a Holocaust denier and Nazi sympathizer, attempted to arrange a speaking event in the Northwest Suburbs, and fell victim to hooliganism as he so frequently has throughout his speaking tour. Having had so many previous encounters, he had a cop (who was quite literally a Nazi) present,[4] but was unable to stop the disruption. Almost a dozen people burst into the restaurant; masked and clad in black, they began to throw chairs, scream, ruin his merchandise, and even scuffle with attendees before exiting.[5] Unfortunately, in the anti-fascists efforts to pick up a comrade left behind, a car circling the area was stopped by police, and the passengers were taken to jail and given disorderly conduct charges.

These efforts are to be applauded to the extent that the content of anti-fascism was not an appeal to an alternative of more democratic values or a more capitalist capitalism, but that the gestures alone revealed everything necessary; a commitment to stomping out fascism at any costs, and more importantly, no desire to appeal to its democratic sister system of management. But where to go from here? A storm lurks in the distance. On March 21st of next year, the NSF is planning a “White Pride World Wide March” in Chicago.[6] This event is sure to draw Nazis from across the Midwest and perhaps even the nation, and will undoubtedly become a giant spectacle within a stream of spectacles. Perhaps the recent “Inglorious Bastards Bloc” in Phoenix provides an example of how to proceed.[7] Any events that involve anarchists publicly packing heat, let alone when Nazis are around, perks our interest. But more importantly (to the extent it influences conditions materially), the discourse surrounding the demo was framed in terms of “Anarchists/Fascists”, ”Proletariat/Capital”, and “Racism/Anti-racism”. It was many things, but it was never “Democracy/Fascism”.  When the confrontation here ensues, the police could simply prove too much of an obstacle for us – unless we are incredibly diligent in recruiting comrades locally and from around the country. By framing the discourse in the same manner as Phoenix, we can immensely aid our local efforts by not only striking against Fascism, but weakening and defaming the counter-revolutionary monolith that is Chicago’s established left. A direct assault against their ignominy will take the form of exposing the poverty of their discourse. Their narcissistic rage will form smiles across our lips, if we can manage it.

More critically, there have been limitations that we would like to see transcended concerning local anti-fascist hooliganism. The hostilities to this point have been waged in a private manner; like two gangs competing for power, can we instead find methods for a more inclusive hooliganism or collective forms of violence? Imagine not just ARA chapters that fought the NSF, but old women throwing vegetables and kitchen utensils as they walked down the street, bus drivers refusing to transport them etc. By making it a public affair, we can also eliminate the suicidal tendency implicit in taking them on alone, and perhaps even increase our power by generalizing social conflict. But the militant form, similar to the ELF and ALF, has not necessarily transformed the content; nor has it amplified hostilities across the social terrain. Perhaps if we are conscious of this limitation, such affective gestures between friends can allow them to realize it’s not just the INSF and other street fascists that these tactics can be applied too; banks, police stations, or wherever one locates the flows of capital can be attacked just as easily as Nazis by friends sharing interests and complicities. But this link is tenuous, at best. Anti-fascism may be doomed to run aground the same rocks as identity politics and single-issue struggles.

Philip Anderson is the self proclaimed leader of the Illinois National Socialist Front, a racist White power organization, which is based out of Peoria, IL. Phil and those involved with the INSF schedule protests to try and spread their message of hate throughout IL. Core beliefs of the group members along with many of the messages they spread branch off from the writings of Adolf Hitler.  Their most common phrase “88” (the letter H being the 8th letter in the alphabet, “HH” or “Hail Hitler”) is almost always signed after their names, or worn on their clothing. This organization supports nothing but segregation, racial violence, and outright hatred and intolerance of anyone who is not like them. Lets make it clear to Phil and his hate organization that they are not welcome in our communities. You can even tell Phil in person.

His last known address (current?) is 804 E Marietta Ave / Peoria Heights IL 61616-6316
You can send him an email at or
You may be able to catch him at his PO box he uses: PO Box 9714  Peoria, IL 61612
You can call him on the phone and yell at him his phone number is 1-309-370-3766
Or if you see him in the hall at school let him know what you think, he is currently attending a local Peoria community college.

White Star Cancels Neo-Nazi band "Evil Incarnate"

Posted by our comrades at the Gay Liberation Network:

White Star Night Club CANCELS Performance by Neo-Nazi Band "Evil Incarnate"!

Band had boasted that "N----r lovers and faggots, Bullets in your head"

Activism - getting involved in your community - has once again won an important pro-gay victory.

Yesterday the promoter of a multi-band show scheduled for this Saturday at the White Star Night Club confirmed with the Gay Liberation Network that he has canceled the performance by neo-Nazi band “Evil Incarnate.”

Therefore our protest, previously scheduled for 6 PM this Saturday, December 19th, is CANCELED.

Our thanks to White Star management for agreeing not to provide a venue for a group that calls for the murder of African Americans and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans people.

Our thanks to all of you who called the White Star Night Club and generally spread the word about the neo-Nazi “Evil Incarnate” heavy metal band.

And our thanks also to our partners in Chicago Anti-Racist Action, who eagerly agreed to join us in protest.

“I myself am Mexican,” said concert promoter Renato Brieno. “I don’t appreciate that kind of racist or anti-homosexual b.s.”

“I have removed EVIL INCARNATE from the Festival, they have officially announced that they are NOT playing this fest. Their ideology ... DOES NOT represent the views and opinions of ANYONE at White Star or any of the other bands.”

Brieno told GLN that Evil Incarnate members had tried to divert the concerns he relayed to them about their “kill gays, kill blacks” lyrics by saying that the song was 20 years old. When he learned that the song was part of a months-old compilation CD called “Smashing Rainbows” on the “Fetch the Rope Records” label, he concluded that they were lying to him.

“They say one thing and then they do another.”

But if they’re willing to call for the deaths of whole groups of people, what’s a little lying on top of that?

Thank you again to all who participated in bringing this important victory over racist and anti-gay hate!
