On October 14th Keystone United members and supporters gathered the Fairmont Park section of Philadelphia for the 11th Annual Leif Erikson Day Celebration.

 We all began to meet at the top of Lemon Hill Road where we were greeted by the Philadelphia PD and also by the covered bitter faces of the Left in an attempt to silence the message and celebration of our American – European History. With European flags waving in the winds our members and supporters stood proud as we prepared to march down Lemon Hill to the statue of European explorer Thorfinn Karlsefni.

Thorfinn Karlsefni was an Icelandic explorer. Around the year 1010 AD, he followed Leif Eriksson‘s route to Vinland, in a short-lived attempt to establish a permanent settlement there with his wife Guðríður Víðförla Þorbjarnardóttir and their followers. –Wikipedia

As we arrived at the statue we gathered around to listen to the journey of Leif Erikson and the history of European Americans. Antifa protesters made their efforts to drown out and silence us with chants and obscenities, but we continued the ceremony as planned standing proudly and respectfully with our brothers and sisters.

After the event we made our way to FDR Park where we met up with more friends and family to enjoy great food and comradery. Overall it was a peaceful event and proved once again that the Left will not silence us.

Members of Keystone United would like to thank everyone who had contributed to the event and everyone who traveled out to enjoy our nice ceremony. We look forward to seeing you all next year!

After Charlottesville where do we go from here?

“The group that called itself Antifa initiated the violence.

“If anyone is to blame for that day it was the Antifa and the Charlottesville Police Department for revoking the permit.”

(Smith terminated the interview after a reporter declined to share with Smith his opinion of Antifa.)

This past week, Keystone United received an interview request from Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Colton Shaw. Our spokesman Steve Smith agreed to the interview as long as it was in person and he could livestream it. Mr. Shaw said his editors were not okay with the interview being livestreamed.

  We are not shocked at all that the Philadelphia Inquirer would not agree to these reasonable conditions. It would be tough for them to twist the interview to fit their anti-White narrative when it is being broadcast live on the internet. Their cowardice proves what we have known all along that the Philadelphia Inquirer and their family of newspapers are purveyors of fake news.

   July 1st  of this year marked the 154th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg! With reenactments, speeches and thousands of tourists flocking to this hallowed ground to pay their respects to the many who died during our nation’s most divisive moment in history, the Civil War.  Antifa, under the guise of “fighting fascism” had other plans involving the disruption and destruction of sacred monuments!   For the past decade, Antifa and other Communist elements have declared all out war on ANYTHING they personally disagree with!  From Confederate monuments, attacking Conservative speakers on college campuses, to rioting at the many rallies in support of President Trump, they have perpetuated senseless violence on the general public for nothing more than freedom of expression! No more! After hearing rumors Antifa was to be in attendance at this year’s event, Keystone United along with Patriots from across the East Coast came to ensure freedom loving Americans could enjoy all of what Gettysburg has to offer in peace.

     Upon arriving, as we gazed into the battlefield seeing all Gettysburg has to offer, we wonder how it is that anyone can show complete disrespect?! Instead, like in all other situations involving communists, positive events such as this are interrupted by spineless cowards with no agenda other than to divide America! Throughout those 3 days in 1863, both Union and Confederate soldiers earned their right to be honored everlasting! For any organization to purposely take the focus off of the memory of the thousands that died, by making it about their own twisted agenda instead of knowing when to shut up is why so many came out against the real problem! If I personally disagree with something, I IGNORE it, not agitate.

      After standing around talking to the many who came out to pay their respects, one group, in particular, was not in attendance. After all of the news articles and talk amongst several communists websites about what they had planned in Gettysburg, their cowardice was shown once more! Antifa may run rampant unimpeded in Liberal cities such as Portland and San Francisco but much of this nation is a no-go zone for them! One main difference has never been more apparent between the right and left. We, as shown time and again this past year can work together for a common purpose as the left crumbles having no sense of unity or commonality.

      One thing can be certain, as they push for ridiculous things such as segregated spaces in colleges, we unify to smash their flawed ideology! Whatever their excuse, let Gettysburg be a reminder of what they have created and that no safe space will be given to the enemy of FREEDOM!

Our very own Steve Smith was interviewed by Keystone Crossroads Emily Previti.

Keystone United, then known as Keystone State Skinheads, ties its launch and wider recognition to a 2001 demonstration provoked by the race riots trials in the city of York. 

Founded in Harrisburg, the organization remains one of the largest active in Pennsylvania, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The group changed its name to avoid the association with violent groups that “go after nonwhites for no reason whatsoever,” said spokesman Steve Smith.

“That’s just wrong and not what we’re about,” he said.

The name change also came after multiple members were charged with violent hate crimes, including Smith himself.

He did two months in prison for his involvement in a hate crime involving other KSS members against a black man in Scranton in 2003.

Smith has been adamant he was a bystander, that there wasn’t physical harm to the victim and that he pleaded guilty to simple assault (rather than terrorist threats) to avoid harsher penalties and a greater expense.

Smith said Keystone United, which he joined 15 years ago at age 30, is less extreme than other groups he’s previously been affiliated with, including the Aryan Nations, NAAWP, and KKK, which he joined at 19 years old.

“I was young and angry. I knew what was happening to my area: high levels of nonwhite crime, violent crime,” he said.

Asked about racial tension, Smith cited similar underlying causes for current problems in his community of Pittston, Luzerne County, more than 25 years later.

Smith is originally from Chester County but moved to Northeastern Pennsylvania in 2006 when the area was undergoing major demographic shifts that continue today.

He said people associate the increasing diversification with an increase in violent crime, pointing to a spike in violence the city of Hazleton during 2000-2014. 

In Wilkes-Barre, the county’s largest city, the increase in violent incidents in the county was more dramatic in the 1990s, more than 70 percent, then all but leveled out over the course of the following decade, when the area’s minority populations really surged. The pattern is similar in Hanover Township and the city of Kingston,  according to a Keystone Crossroads analysis of FBI Uniform Crime Reports and U.S. Census statistics.

In Nanticoke, trends were similar to Hazleton, but the violent crime rate there has been down since 2010.

The area also has been struggling economically for decades. Over the past several years, the region’s recovery from the recession has been relatively slow, according to a Keystone Crossroads analysis of data from the U.S. Bureau and Labor Statistics.

Smith said he does not know what else might be at play, but that the nature of racial tension complicates finding solutions to what he sees as associated problems.

“People are afraid to speak publicly about these issues. That’s what’s probably causing this racial tension more so than just violent crime: the fact that people can’t openly speak about it without being labeled,” he said. “They don’t want to speak out about it because of the stigma. If you’re white and you speak out on behalf of your people, you are labeled these term buzzwords like racist and white supremacist.”

Smith is in his second term as a committeeman in the Luzerne County Republican Party. Fellow Keystone United member Ryan Wojtowicz is in his first term in the same role in a different district.

Smith said he is not aware of anyone else in elected office in Pennsylvania, currently, who shares their agenda, openly or not; and did not have specifics on plans to achieve the group’s goal of electing more people who are pro-white.

He also would not say how many people belong to Keystone United, other than membership is at its peak.

Smith says Luzerne County has a relatively high concentration of members, along with Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. But he says the group’s stronghold is in Central Pennsylvania, which includes the cities of Harrisburg, Lancaster, and York.
