New Jersey A3P Networks at Tax Day Tea Party

New Jersey A3P Networks at Tax Day Tea PartyLocal activists met on the Morristown Green on Saturday, April 16, for the third annual Tax Day Tea Party. The cold wet weather did not deter hardy A3P members and other concerned Americans from exercising their First Amendment! We distributed numerous “Globalization: Not A Good Thing” cards to our fellow, open-minded folk. More importantly, A3P used the occasion to engage in a healthy dialogue by conducting impromptu interviews with some of the other attendees.

Chuck from Morris County said, “We want to keep our own identity. If we globalize we no longer have an identity. Do you want to give up your identity as an American?”

When asked why they were out in the pouring rain for this event, Nancy, a retired area resident, summed it up: “I do not like the direction that the country is going.” Regarding affirmative action, Nancy simply stated that, “…it hasn’t worked.” Linda was there to “Save our country for our Grandchildren.”

Tea Party events have become fertile ground to promote our cause over the last two years. A3P routinely plants seeds at these events throughout Metro New York. Directly engaging our people is one of the most effective ways of conveying our message. Overall this Tea Party event was a very positive and uplifting experience, and A3P successfully brought our message home to many.

US Census: Hispanics outnumber blacks in metro areas

April 14, 2011 | New figures by the US Census Bureau show Hispanics now outnumber African Americans for the first time in most metropolitan areas.

The figures, from the 2010 Census, illustrate the growing diversity of the 366 metro areas in the US, which are home to 83.7% of the US population.

Hispanics became the largest minority group in 191 of the areas last year.

The data could influence redistricting lines in many states, where political maps are drawn based on population.

The figures released on Thursday are important for the US political process because population determines the number of members a state has in the House of Representatives.

And states draw their own district lines, often taking ethnic voting into account.

Hispanic growth

That Hispanic populations have become the biggest minority groups in an increasing number of metropolitan areas – 191, up from 159 in the 2000 Census – is in part attributed to black populations moving south, leaving behind economically troubled cities in the northern part of the country.

New metropolitan areas where Hispanic populations rose include: Chicago, Illinois; Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Atlantic City, New Jersey – all regions that will lose US House seats in the 2012 elections because of overall population changes.

Last month, the Census Bureau said the total Hispanic population in the US jumped 42% in the last 10 years to 50.5m, the equivalent of one in six Americans.

Black populations increased 11% to 37.7m, or about one in 10 Americans.

“A greater Hispanic presence is now evident in all parts of the country – in large and small metropolitan areas, in the Snowbelt [northern states] and in the Sunbelt [southern states],” William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution, told the Associate Press news agency.

He added: “From now on, local, state and national politicians will need to pay attention to Hispanics rather than treating blacks as the major minority.”

SoCal A3P Activists Return to Huntington Beach

After a brief hiatus, the A3P’s Southern California activist team hit the streets once again this last Saturday to spread the party’s message to the habitants, pedestrians, and occasional inquisitive transients of the bustling Orange County coastal community of Huntington Beach.

Braving nuclear fallout (and a chance of rain), and having to compete for attention with a man who routinely drives a nail into his face, our activists, stalwart as ever, set up shop in their usual location, erecting the A3P Truth Booth in defiance of all elements and opposition.

“Yes, it can be a bit silly at the Huntington Beach pier sometimes,” clarified local activist Mitch Stevens, while describing the day’s event.  “We’ve actually been up and down much of the Southern California coastline.  The demographic environment where we live is very strange.  Large pockets of individual populations occupy certain areas in such density that these areas are readily understood by everybody to belong to individual, specific races.”

“Whites here are no different, and for every obvious reason, our local activist team has usually sought out for events locations thought to be primarily populated by our people”, continued Mr. Stevens.

“We’ve been to Los Angeles County, and held events there, but none were experiences we’d like to repeat.

“In Southern California, especially in Orange County, Whiteness is generally associated with significant wealth, and I’m confident our activist team has been to some of the wealthiest areas in our country”, said Mitch, “Surprisingly (or not), these areas were “hard-sells,” as was indicated by the title to an article describing our visit to one of them.”

Mr. Stevens elaborated, “The problem we’ve found with very rich areas, even though they are largely populated by white people, is that a seemingly decent sized portion of these whites directly benefit from our nation’s myriad ailments, and are therefore uninterested in pamphlets on ‘Immigration,’ ‘Globalization,’ and ‘American Jobs for American Workers.’  Why stop the invasion of our country, goes their reasoning, when it’s only by an army of dirt-cheap labor?”

“Anyone can go to a local pub in one of these super-rich areas and find the place half-packed before noon on a weekday, filled with the owners of construction companies, landscaping services, housecleaning services, window washing services, etc. – any job these guys can hire middle-aged Mexicans to do for a rate formerly paid to high school sophomores.

“Repatriate millions of illegals, and most of these ‘local business owners’ would have to do some honest work again, rather than merely guzzle beer all day.

“Huntington Beach is different from some other Orange County coastal communities, in that the majority of its residents are still working class white families.  Run-of-the-mill people still live here, and their sons and daughters still grow up with a sense of white working-class pride.

“While certainly not untouched by the ‘enrichment’ brought on by mass-immigration, Huntington Beach, along with Seal Beach and a few other small northern Orange County communities, truly is a beach-side ethnic outpost, the likes of which can’t be found again until reaching Northern California.

 “We like to use the pier area as a regrouping point after any break from our personal outreach campaign because the passersby are usually friendly, and that’s always a morale boost for us. 

“The pier, itself, is also a large tourist attraction, enabling us to frequently speak with people from all over the country.  We find it helpful to learn first-hand what the situation is like in other parts of the country.

“Over the last year, our team has had numerous lengthy conversations with people whose ideas for turning things around are not that different from our own.

“I’d say our hardest fight is against apathy.  People agree with our policies, they just don’t believe we can win.

 “We’ve a threshold to reach, that’s all”, explained Mitch, “If we ever become big enough and ‘cool’ enough, people will choose us because only our ideas make any sense.”

Readers local to the Orange County, California area are encouraged to contact Mitch Stevens and the A3P’s Southern California activist chapter by using the contact feature of this website.

Another Day of Successful Activism by West Virginia A3P

This past weekend, the West Virginia Chapter of the American Third Position, led by A3P WV State Chairman Harry Bertram, engaged in another successful literature distribution in Morgantown, West Virginia.

In a determined effort of face-to-face, person-to-person activism over two days, the team of A3P activists distributed many hundreds of pieces of party literature to the residents of the city.

The standard Globalism and American Jobs for American Workers fliers, as well as our Immigration tri-fold pamphlet, were eagerly accepted by the good people of West Virginia; many of whom have come to recognize the names Harry Bertram and The American Third Position due to their persistent and ongoing activism in the region.

Several of the locals remember Harry Bertram from his recent bid for Monogolia County Board of Education this past November and encouraged him to run for office again in the future.

In response Harry said, “I won’t rule out a future candidacy, if that’s what the people want.  Those statements of support and the fact that we are now recognized as a positive presence in the community show how pertinent the philosophy of The American Third Position is to regular white Americans.”

“The message of national sovereignty and cultural identity hit home with these people, as they are becoming increasingly aware of the exclusion of their interests from the common discourse of our current political system”, said Harry, “And this fact is clearly addressed in a very plain and easy to understand format in the literature that the A3P distributes.”

“It is hard for a true American to not be supportive of our position when he is given intelligent literature to read coupled with a real person there to discuss it with him,” continued Harry. “That is the way we do it here.”

Through the tireless efforts of dedicated activists like Harry Bertram and his team in West Virginia, the American Third Position is growing at an unprecedented rate with several new members coming on board every day.

The sudden surge in new membership will ensure we continually have new activists to step up and carry our message to ever more Americans.

Whatever it takes, together we can win.
