Well, June was planned as the month where all the pro-AZ law groups were going to march in support of Arizona’s new law. But who would have though that the law co-written by a Nazi pal would be supported by Nazis? And that said Nazis would then show up to the marches en masse? Obviously not ALIPAC, who have quickly tried to run away from the hornets nest they helped set up! (ALIPAC is Americans for Legal Immigration PAC) However, everyone’s favorite Literacy Test Promoter Tom Tancredo is still ready and willing to go, defending neo-Nazis to do it!
So there are going to be multiple rallies in June in support of the new law. The one to watch is the June 5th one, as it is the one organized by Tom Tancredo and Dan Smeriglio. It is the center of a current controversy as several bigwig groups have decided to drop it like it’s hot and walk away after learning about the Nazi connections of one Dan Smeriglio. Okay, only ALIPAC admitted that the Nazi stuff is the reason they are walking away. Resistnet’s reasoning is a bit….odd. But more on those fools later. First up:
ALIPAC Withdraws From AZ Rallies Over Nazi Groups & Tom Tancredo
May 18, 2010
We are sad to announce that ALIPAC is withdrawing support for any rallies in Arizona in June to support SB 1070 due to the discovery of racist group involvement and the actions of former Congressman Tom Tancredo.
We take our commitment to working with and unifying Americans of every race and walk of life behind the effort to secure our borders very seriously. While the illegal alien supporters constantly make false accusations of racism and racist involvement, it is of paramount importance that groups like ours work to keep any racist element out of our events and operations.
A few weeks ago, we got behind a rally in Phoenix on June 5 being planned by Dan Smeriglio of Voice of The People USA and retired Congressman Tom Tancredo. On Monday, May 10th, we discovered two painful truths that forced us to take a new direction.
First, June 5 organizer Dan Smeriglio had radically misinformed us about his possession of permits for a location in Phoenix on June 5. He did not have any permits and the illegal alien supporter had permits for the location he had promised us. This happened last year when Smeriglio promised us he had permits for a rally in DC and we had to cancel when we learned he had misinformed us and the illegal alien supporters had the permit for our rally location. Unfortunately we had quite a case of political déjà vu with Mr. Smeriglio misleading organization leaders about permits, while our opposition held the ground he promised us.
The second problem also arose around June 5, when we picked up a release by a smaller illegal alien supporting group called One People’s Project. The group was attacking Dan Smeriglio claiming he was working with skin heads and Nazis and attacking ALIPAC for associating with Smeriglio.
The illegal alien and amnesty supporting activists and groups constantly play the race card and twist information in a way that is false and designed to try to throw mud on anyone who stands up and speaks out against illegal immigration.
However, we reviewed the video and computer screen shots that our opposition possesses regarding Dan Smeriglio and discovered that they are correct.
The video and screen shots of Dan Smeriglio’s Facebook account indicates that he has willingly been working with members or racist skin head groups long after he knew their identities and politics. In fact, Dan’s Facebook profile, which remains his main way of broadcasting a rally for June 5, promoted one of Europe’s most popular neo-Nazi rock groups until a few days ago.

On Tuesday, May 11, we were invited to join a Tea Party group out of Florida rally in Phoenix on June 12 , so we spoke to some leaders and moved to unify on the 12th for a larger rally and to move away from Dan Smeriglio and his skinhead associates. We felt leaving the June 5 event was the best way to protect many of the vulnerable candidates wishing to attend a rally in Phoenix.
Unfortunately, our plans to get the skinheads out and away from the Phoenix effort was thwarted, when retired Congressman Tom Tancredo, who had self titled himself as the ‘key note speaker’ at the June 5 event started telling leaders and candidates to come back to the June 5 rally. Tancredo even claimed that ALIPAC’s concerns about Dan Smeriglio were false, when he had not reviewed the video and screen shots which we find to be fairly conclusive.
Some fine folks in Arizona took action at the end of last week and assured us that Dan Smeriglio’s involvement was being completely removed from the June 5 rally and that we would have no more difficulties from Tom Tancredo.
Unfortunately, we found out yesterday that Dan Smeriglio is still involved with the Facebook effort to support the June 5 event, even though the neo-Nazi rock group and friends and their comments have been sanitized from his Facebook pages. We also found out that Tom Tancredo is continuing to try and persuade leaders to abandon the June 12 event for the 5th event.
ALIPAC will not work with any group or event that is working with or supportive of neo-Nazis or anyone working with them. We do not feel comfortable asking our national network to travel into Arizona at great expense to attend an event that Tom Tancredo is attempting to undermine.
We must point out here that Tom Tancredo had nothing to do with helping pass SB 1070 or circulate it to other states to our knowledge although the three largest national groups fighting illegal immigration have.
We have spent a great deal of time, effort, and energy trying to get these events into place for the people of Arizona and America. We have worked diligently behind the scenes to try to resolve this situation with the knowledge that our political opposition does have strong evidence of neo-Nazi supporters being involved with the event still going forward on the 5th.
We feel it is completely unacceptable that Dan Smeriglio and Tom Tancredo or anyone else would put the brave activists, lawmakers, candidates, and citizens of Arizona at risk by proceeding with an event that our opponents can use to harm our cause of stopping and reversing illegal immigration.
We are releasing the video and screen shots that the illegal alien supporting groups posses and intend to use against the rallies. We have documented their findings and the screen shots are our copies.
We apologize to all of you who were excited about going to events in Arizona and already making travel plans to support SB 1070 and AZ.
ALIPAC will not be attending or promoting any rallies in June in Arizona and we advise anyone consider attending any event to review the information showing white nationalist influence involving the core organizers.
We will have no future dealings with Dan Smeriglio or retired Congressman Tom Tancredo due to the neo-Nazi connections and this disaster they have cooked up in Arizona that puts our issue at risk. Our friends in the Tea Party groups still plan to carry on with a much smaller event on June 12 in Phoenix.
The donations we received over the last few days will be used to help spread SB 1070 to other states. Any ALIPAC supporter that would prefer a refund please contact [email protected]

The link supplied by ALIPAC has lots of screenshots and other documents compiled by OnePeoplesProject.com, a site we should probably be listing on our Links section and will be shortly after I get this post up.
OnePeoplesProject has a great page on Daniel Smeriglio, including this nice video:
Dan’s Voice of the People USA site, which is also run with Steve Smith, another creepy dude. Steve Smith then shows up in the ALIPAC thread to say he isn’t a neonazi, he’s just totally into preserving European Culture:
Dan Smeriglio has responded to the ALIPAC dropping him (reposted here on this other creepy guy’s site)
Here is some of the stuff given to ALIPAC by OnePeoplesProject:
Screen shot proof that
DAN SMERIGLIO’s (The organizer of June 5 rally with Tancredo) FACEBOOK PAGE WAS LINKING TO NAZI ROCKERS SAGA
SAGA and Steve Smith were removed from Smeriglio’s Facebook page promoting the June 5 Phoenix event after a lot of pressure on May 13
Screen Shot of Sanitized Pages…
The neo-Nazi rock group SAGA is also listed on Steve Smith of Keystone United’s Facebook as his favorite rock group too!
(Screen Shot of Steve Smith Saga profile Page 3)
Dan Smeriglio’s Facebook profile has been advertising the neo-Nazi rock groups SAGA up until a few days ago. Dan’s Facebook profile is the main communications channel running a page to drive a rally on June 5 in Phoenix AZ in support of SB 1070.
The page is called “OFFICIAL: ARIZONA RALLY & FREEDOM MARCH ACROSS AMERICA”
Dan Smeriglio and Steve Smith were seen conversing with each other on the rally page two weeks ago, but we do not have the screen shots and those posts have recently been erased.
While there are several SAGA Fan Pages on Facebook, the SAGA links on both Dan Smeriglio’s and Steve Smith’s Facebook profiles links to the very same SAGA Fan Page found at this link…
Here is what Wikipedia says about Smeriglio and Smith’s favorite band SAGA.
Here are some examples of SAGA’s music videos on YouTube that shows her performing for the NSF “National Socialist Front”. The NSF is a neo-Nazi political group in Sweden.

Videos (Swastika’s and other racist symbols appear in these)
Saga – Ode To A Dying People
Saga – European dream
This SAGA should not be confused with the defunct Canadian band from the early 80’s called Saga.
So, oddly enough, we have to give props to ALIPAC for pulling the plug. We won’t be giving any props to Resistnet, who have also pulled the plug, but for reasons barely mentioned below. Also no props to Tom Tancredo and his enthusiasm for hanging around with Nazis:
“I am proud to be participating in the June 5 rally at the Arizona state capitol in support of Arizona’s new law aimed at illegal immigration, SB1070. The allegations against one of the rally’s organizers, Daniel Smeriglio, have been examined and are not only without merit, they are the worst kind of character assassination that no decent person in politics, left, right or center, should condone.
“One can only speculate about the motives behind this transparent smear campaign. But I do know that good citizens of Arizona and across the nation will not be deterred from expressing their support for Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce and the citizens of Arizona who have taken this bold step to control illegal immigration. The June 5 rally is going forward and information is available at http://www.phoenixrally.com.”
And this guy who hasn’t bothered to support ALIPAC with money is so ashamed that they don’t want to associate with Nazis.
More wild accusations. Notice all these angry dudes have like 1-4 posts.
Nazis tricked ALIPAC as part of a big scheme!
Wake up! I saw it in an email forward!
Time to get some diapers
So let’s get to Resistnet’s say on the matter:
Notice how they don’t mention the Nazi connections at all! They just they they are bugging out and blame “infighting” and “people trying to be heroes” Yeah, Nazi heroes. That’s because Resistnet is smart enough to try to not alienate the racists they need money from to get rich off of, while also not appearing at rallies ran by the Nazis so awesome Wingnut Webs here and on TarsTarkas.NET Blog don’t cost them thousands in donations from the less racist members they are also getting rich off of. But let’s see some more posts!
It makes me sick that NAZIs will let Illegals win!
Let’s Teabag the Teabaggers!
REAL AMERICANS! What? The REAL AMERICANS running the show ARE the Nazis? So?
Excuse me, this other site ran by another racist dude says the one racist dudes aren’t racist. So there!
Sorry, Linda Garner, the Teabaggers are being racist from INSIDE THE HOUSE!!
See? 38 Attending.
Those Nazis have never goose-stepped in front of me, so it must be a lie. I couldn’t have notices the goose-stepping what with my goose-stepping…
It’s the fight of our lives! Call in the Nazis!
Nazis won’t show up, and liberals are the real nazis!
