Last month, we reported that an employee of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) testified with another controversial anti-immigrant group Americans for Immigration Control (AIC). The man who represented FAIR at that hearing was the director of special projects, Jack Martin. Martin appeared on the radar again recently when he appeared in the latest edition of the white nationalist journal, The Social Contract (TSC).
TSC is edited by white nationalist Wayne Lutton and is published by John Tanton, who was recently profiled in a front page article in the Sunday edition of the New York Times.
Martin’s article is his second published in TSC and he is not the only FAIR employee to have articles appearing in TSC throughout its existence. Current FAIR president Dan Stein has had 9 articles published in the racist journal, dating from 1991-2002. Scipio Garling, a former FAIR employee had 3 articles published in TSC. William Chip, another former FAIR employee who now sits on the group’s advisory board has also had 3 articles published in TSC.
Besides publishing numerous articles from FAIR employees, TSC has published articles from white nationalists such as Wayne Lutton, Peter Gemma, Jared Taylor and the late Sam Francis. It also published an issue recently which called Islam a “menace” and called for a ban on all Muslim immigration to the United States. Martin’s article in the latest edition of the TSC was co-authored by Dick Schneider of Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS).
Both Schneider and Martin’s organizations, CAPS and FAIR, have received funding from the Pioneer Fund, a foundation that has a history of promoting the genetic superiority of white, European-Americans. The Pioneer Fund uses its financial largesse to fund groups who promote “race-betterment” – a controversial theory that claims there is a biologically-caused IQ difference between white and non-white people.
FAIR chose to ignore the accusations of bigotry made against its founder John Tanton in the New York Times article. The group dismissed its own ties to white nationalism as nothing more than guilt by association. But the revelation that a current FAIR employee is published in a white nationalist journal only further cements these ties. Instead of addressing the concerns raised in the Times article, FAIR’s president Dan Stein stated in a press release, “We stand by our record…”
FAIR’s record however is tainted by the growing list of ties to white nationalism.
