The American Free Press, an anti-Semitic and conspiracy oriented newspaper pub-lished by longtime white suprema-cist Willis Carto, is the primary sponsor of an upcoming gathering of white supremacists, anti-Semites, anti-government extremists and conspiracy theorists during July 4th weekend, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
“Freedompalooza 2013,” organized by Paul Topete, an extremist lead singer of the band “Pokerface,” will take place from July 4 – 6 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
The list of invited speakers features several well-known supporters of anti-Semites and racists, including two former members of Congress: Cynthia Mckinney, who has a history of promoting anti-Israel rhetoric, including accusing the pro-Israel lobby of sabotaging her political career, and James Traficant, who since his release from prison on federal racketeering and bribery convictions has joined the Amer-i-can Free Press, where he has expressed his own anti-Semitic and anti-Israel views.
“It is particularly disturbing that former members of Congress will be prominent speakers at such a hate-filled event in our backyard,” said Barry Morrison, ADL Philadelphia Regional Director. “It is troubling to think that people will converge on Bucks County to hear from some of the nation’s leading racists and anti-Semites.”
“Freedompalooza 2013” will also host other speakers including Jim Condit, Jr., who ran sev-eral times for Con-gress in Ohio, tak-ing advan-tage of his can-di-date sta-tus to obtain a plat-form for express-ing his anti-Semitic views in radio advertisements, and Merlin Miller, the 2012 pres-i-den-tial can-di-date of the white suprema-cist Amer-i-can Free-dom Party. Larry Pratt, head of the Gun Owners of America, a radical gun rights group, will also be present.

It wasn’t a “big” story. In fact, the article published by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last June received little follow-up and even less attention. That’s unfortunate – because it’s a story that explains the anxiety so many Americans express about both Obama’s Affordable Care Act and even “reasonable” gun controls.
