"Gangs Of Sarasota" White Nationalist Peter Gemma Involved in Sarasota GOP He Appeared With KKK David Duke Raising Funds For BNP (Thugs).

"Gangs Of Sarasota" White Nationalist Peter Gemma Involved in Sarasota GOP He Appeared With KKK David Duke Raising Funds For whites-only British National Party (BNP Thugs). SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE WRITES: Alleged ‘white nationalist’ Peter Gemma immersed in Sarasota GOP. In 1999, the head of the Republican National Committee urged all Republicans involved with the Council of Conservative Citizens to resign from the group, saying the CCC appeared to hold “racist views.”The CCC had become infamous after media scrutiny of the organization and its links to elected officials. The Washington Post noted in 1999 that “a columnist published by the council’s Web site, wrote that if whites continue to allow heavy immigration and racial mixing, they will become part of ‘a slimy brown mass of glop." Years after that RNC warning, Peter Gemma’s name popped up in association with the CCC. Peter Gemma — a Sarasota resident whose involvement in local politics has stirred controversy in recent weeks — wrote an article that ran in a CCC newsletter in 2005. At the end of the article, Gemma was listed as the president of the organization’s chapter in the Washington, D.C., area. In 2005, the Washington Post wrote that Gemma organized a secretive book event with David Irving, an author described in the Post article as “a well-known Holocaust denier who has claimed that Jews were not killed in gas chambers at Auschwitz. Party Chairman Joe Gruters says he will ask Gemma to resign from the executive committee, even as Gemma denies “any of the crazy stuff they say about me”.

SPLC Writes: In 2000, Peter Gemma appeared with David Duke and Don Black, both former leaders of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, at an event meant to raise money for the fascist, whites-only British National Party. Virtually unnoticed, Peter Gemma, who lives in Sarasota Florida, has recently joined the governing national executive committee of the Constitution Party as its eighth living member (party founder Howard Phillips, who died earlier this year, is also listed). Although Gemma is described by the party website as “a veteran political and fundraising consultant” who was a staffer on three presidential campaigns, he is in fact a white nationalist with deep ties to a whole array of racist hate groups. For years, he was the head of design, marketing and advertising for the racist tabloid of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC) — a group that has complained that non-white immigration was turning the U.S. population into a “slimy brown mass of glop” and described black people as a “retrograde species of humanity.” He also was the media coordinator for the CCC’s Capital Region for several years. Pat Buchanan's presidential bid turned the Reform Party into a catch-basin for energetic racial nationalists who were eager to campaign for Pat. Right-wing extremists secured leadership roles in various state chapters, including the notable example of Virginia. There, Peter Gemma, a friend of Buchanan's and veteran far-right agitator, became a national committee member as a representative of the state Reform Party. The diminutive Gemma was also a member of the influential and highly secretive Council for National Policy (CNP). Founded in 1981, the CNP meets three times a year to strategize about how to advance a right-wing agenda. Its elite roster of heavy-hitters reads like a Who's Who of the hard right in the United States. A seasoned Republican campaign manager, Gemma was instrumental in raising money for Oliver North's unsuccessful Senate bid in 1994. He later helped Arizona Republican Tom Liddy (the son of Watergate felon G. Gordon Liddy) run a feisty campaign for Congress in another losing effort. Increasingly friendly with fringe groups, Gemma has written articles for The New American, the magazine of the John Birch Society, which listed him as its spokesperson in a February 2000 press release demanding that the U.S government take back the Panama Canal.
The anti-immigrant group Progressives for Immigration Reform (PFIR) had its column on Huffington Post cancelled after the group’s connections to white nationalists were exposed. Apparently this was news to PFIR’s executive director, Leah Durant. On October 4, 2009, PFIR’s Durant attended Tanton’s 33rd Annual Writers Workshop. She was photographed there alongside Peter Gemma and Wayne Lutton (see photo above), who has been active in several white supremacist groups and published in a Holocaust denial journal. In the summer of 2009, the white nationalist journal The Social Contract, published by John Tanton, featured a six page article about PFIR including an interview with Leah Durant. The article and interview were written by Peter Gemma, who also writes for the anti-Semitic Occidental Quarterly and Middle American News (MAN). MAN’s earliest leadership included white nationalist Samuel Francis (now deceased). Gemma participated with the extremist Council for National Policy and spoke at a white nationalist event alongside the famous neo-Nazi David Duke. In 2003 Gemma spoke at a Council of Conservative Citizens event addressing “The Attack on White Culture.”
