COLORADO SPRINGS - A group labeled by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a white nationalist hate group is expected to hold a conference in Colorado Springs.
VDARE.com's conference is scheduled for April 19, 2018 through April 22, 2018 at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort.

A petition called "Hate is NOT welcome" has been created to try and prevent the event from coming to Colorado Springs.
It has a goal of 1,000 signatures. The petition has only been active for two days and it already has over 500 signatures.
On its website, VDARE's mission is explained in part:
"America is real: America is not a melting pot, or a tossed salad or any other fashionable dietary metaphor that strips our nation of its rightful identity. We founded a country unique to history that has its own philosophies, values, social structure, attitudes, festivals, foods and aesthetic. VDARE.com strives to preserve and celebrate the distinctive culture of America."
The Southern Poverty Law Center says in its article on VDARE that the founder, Peter Brimelow with Center for American Unity is an anti-immigrant activist that has "served to promote the work of white supremacists, anti-Semites, and others on the radical right."
The article also states that VDARE publishes essays written by prominent academic racists.
One example is Jason Kessler. He was a major leader in the rally that took place in Charlottesville, Va. on August 12, 2017.
After a doing a search in VDARE.com's database, several articles were written by Kessler including "Yes, Virginia (Dare), There Is Such A Thing As White Genocide."
We have reached out to the Cheyenne Mountain Resort and VDARE for a comment, they haven't gotten back to us.
