Did New House Majority Whip Speak at White Supremacist Conference?

Did New House Majority Whip Speak at White Supremacist Conference? December 30, 2014

Lamar White, Jr. did some research on Stormfront, the notorious website for white supremacists and neo-Nazis, and has uncovered evidence that Rep. Steve Scalise, the new Republican House Majority Whip (the #3 position) spoke at a white supremacist conference in 2002. Specifically, multiple forum posts from attendees praising him for the talk he gave there.

But on that weekend in May, Scalise was reportedly armed with a microphone at the Landmark Best Western in Metairie and talking about tax policy to an international convention… of white supremacists and neo-Nazis. According to a commenter who used the name “Alsace Hebert,” Steve Scalise was a highlight of the convention. Quoting:

EURO’s recent national convention held in the greater New Orleans area was a convergence of ideas represented by Americans from diverse geographical regions like California, Texas, New Jersey and the Carolina’s. This indicates that concerns held are pervasive in every sovereign state and Republic alike, within an increasingly diminishing view of where America stands on individual liberty for whites.

In addition to plans to implement tactical strategies that were discussed, the meeting was productive locally as State Representative, Steve Scalise, discussed ways to oversee gross mismanagement of tax revenue or “slush funds” that have little or no accountability.

Representative Scalise brought into sharp focus the dire circumstances pervasive in many important, under-funded needs of the community at the expense of graft within the Housing and Urban Development Fund, an apparent give-away to a selective group based on race.

EURO is the European-American Unity and Rights Organization, a group that was headed by former KKK grand wizard David Duke. Another post from Hebert in the Stormfront forums:

It was just announced that Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Jefferson will enter the race in the 1st Congressional District. Those that attended the EURO conference in New Orleans will recall that Scalise was a speaker, offering his support for issues that are of concern to us.

I suppose if Duke does not make the election for whatever reason, this gentleman would be a good alternative.

I wonder if the major media will even bother asking Scalise about this.
