The latest entrants in the saga of Cindy Sheehan vs. the White House are white supremacists, as they plan to rally against the Iraq War this weekend in Crawford, Texas.
Members of Stormfront.org are tossing their figurative hoods into the mix, as they invite supporters to come to Camp Casey to “let the world know that white patriots were first and loudest to protest this war for Israel.”
“We don’t want leftist Johnny-come-latelys who are misleadingly protesting this war – as if the war is about oil (not true), or as if it’s right-wing patriots who launched this war (not true) – to hijack the issue from us,” writes James Kelso, senior moderator of Stormfront.
“We want to challenge these leftists with the fact that their leftist leaders, like Hillary Clinton, are on the same war-for-Israel team as the cowardly Republicans who have been bought and paid for in the Senate, House, White House and media by the Jewish Neocon political machine.”
Kelso is an assistant to David Duke, the Ku Klux Klansman and activist for European-Americans who was elected to Louisiana’s Legislature in 1989, and more recently has served prison time for mail fraud and filing a false tax return.

Duke, himself, is speaking publicly about the California woman who demands a second meeting with Bush in connection with the war-related death of her son, Casey, who had volunteered in the Army.
In an online column, Duke gives a host of reasons why he believes Cindy Sheehan is right to oppose the conflict in Iraq, among them:
- There were no weapons of mass destruction, no nuclear program, no uranium from Niger, no links with al-Qaida, no imminent threat to the American people;
- if Americans were sent to die for democracy or justice in all the countries of the world we deem unjust or undemocratic, then we must be ready to send millions of our sons and daughters to war all over the globe;
- the war is massively increasing hatred and terrorism. For every one terrorist killed in Iraq, we are creating thousands more who hate and want to hurt America and Americans; and
- it has secured us no new or cheaper oil, it has cost a national treasure of hundreds of billions of dollars, it has alienated friends and allies, it has hurt American business around the world … .
Duke also claims Sheehan believes her son died for the sake of Israel, though she has repeatedly denied she ever made such a comment.
However, Sheehan did make a connection with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a verbal tirade against the president this month in Dallas, stating:
“You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you’ll stop the terrorism.”
In a messageboard on Stormfront’s website, a member with the pseudonym “Dixie Gal” provides strategy, as well as some practical advice for those attending this weekend’s planned rally.
“This war needs to be stopped, our troops brought home. Then our dear president needs to put the troops on the Mexican border, to keep out all these illegals! Have a safe trip, and give Cindy our support! P.S. Don’t forget your sunscreen!”
