U.S. white su­prem­a­cists fight Mus­lim mi­gra­tion

Miami Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

WASH­ING­TON — Europe’s white na­tion­al­ists are tak­ing bor­der con­trol into their own hands.

Funded with money from Amer­i­can white su­prem­a­cists and the “alt-right” move­ment, a group called Gen­er­a­tion Iden­tity has char­tered a ship it plans to use to snatch Mus­lim mi­grants out of Mediter­ranean waters and de­liver them back to the Mid­dle East.

The group says it will be look­ing for mi­grants in dis­tress, lean­ing on mar­itime law that re­quires any boater to come to the aid of an­other in or­der to col­lect and re­di­rect non-white refugees.

Gen­er­a­tion Iden­tity calls its ef­fort “De­fend Europe.”

“De­fend Europe is the only way to se­cure the Euro­pean bor­ders and to stop the drown­ing in the sea,” said Martin Sell­ner, an Aus­trian mem­ber of Gen­er­a­tion Iden­tity who is lead­ing De­fend Europe, in a pro­mo­tional video about the project.

Gen­er­a­tion Iden­tity — be­gun in France and now in Aus­tria, Ger­many, Italy and the Nether­lands — raised funds for the ship on an Amer­i­can alt-right crowd­sourc­ing plat­form, win­ning the at­ten­tion of some of Amer­ica’s most fa­mous white su­prem­a­cists.

David Duke, in­fa­mous anti-Semite and for­mer Ku Klux Klan leader, tweeted out a link to De­fend Europe’s fundrais­ing page. The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi and white su­prem­a­cist Amer­i­can in­for­ma­tion site, has pub­lished sev­eral ar­ti­cles sup­port­ing the idea and call­ing
