After Charlottesville where do we go from here?       

-Steven Smith

Luzerne County Republican committeeman

“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.

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.

Make sure you click on the link above. Two great brothers of ours with a great radio show!

Jason Augustus joins Matthew Heimbach for the Monday edition of The Daily Traditionalist to talk about his impressions of Leif Erikson day which takes place in Pennsylvania every year. Keystone United were there along with Steve Smith who has been on the show before, after he won a local election through campaigning in his local community despite a large amount of negative media coverage.

The gathering was a celebration of the White Viking hero who sailed to America and was a big contrast from anything Jason was used to, as in New York people would assume it was going to be malicious, since it was exclusively White. It reminded him that Nationalism has moved away from being reactionary in the last decade towards a more family focused environment that is more about community building. It was still very individualistic back then, but as the activists starting having kids, they started to think more about what sort of world we are creating for our children.

Young people today are really disconnected from their heritage, they are told they should feel guilty for it and are not used to celebrating it. This is unnatural as we should be living within our own tribe, with people we know we can trust and count on to turn to when we need help. We are used to hearing the Left talk about community organisers, but we don’t often hear much about it on the right and we certainly don’t have any official ones like the Blacks have.

We need to take our struggle seriously as we are the only ones speaking up for our people, nobody else is doing it. We are actively under attack in the White working class areas and people like Bernie Sanders who claims to represent the working class constantly accuse us of being privileged. To see what is coming for the White man in America you only have to look at the White squatter camps in South Africa. There is no point where the other races will say enough is enough and speak up for us, they will just keep going until they have driven us from our territory entirely, as they have done in Rhodesia. They even say the only way to get rid of racism is to get rid of Whites.

Jason grew up in a deprived area and under the class theory of the Left, he should have been helped by the Dominicans around him, but they despised him because he was White and solidarity with his class status never even came into it. They had been brought up on the anti-White hatred on the tv and in school and any Whites who have to live in the poorer areas alongside the diversity have to put up with the same.

Every other ethnic community is organised and know that they are a people, it is only Whites who fail to understand this and capitalize on it.

By:Steve Smith

Back in 2012, I was elected to the Luzerne County Republican Committee for the first time. My election brought great publicity because of the fact that I was a openly pro-White activist. In a normal world , this election victory wouldn’t be a blip on a radar. However, in today’s anti-White politically correct bizarro world, my election was national news.

Predictably, the GOP County Chairman at the time, Terry Casey felt compelled to issue a press release denouncing me. I will break down and refute Casey’s idiotic statement point by point . My comments will be in italics.

Former Luzerne County GOP Chairman Terry Casey was a cuckservative before the term was coined!

Former Luzerne County GOP Chairman Terry Casey was a cuckservative before the term was coined!
Here is Terry Casey’s statement:

The election of Steven Smith to the Republican Committee of Luzerne County (LCRC) has received media coverage in the last few days.  We are grateful to the Anti-Defamation League and other media outlets for bringing to our attention the racially charged and disturbing background of this man from Pittston.  We unequivocally denounce Mr. Smith and his abhorrent views and would like to make it clear that in no way do his personal views reflect the views of the Republican Party.

Terry Casey’s first mistake was being “grateful” to the Anti-Defamation League. The ADL is a leftist Jewish Supremacist organization that  routinely manufactures  false notions of  “anti-semitism” to try to justify their existence. Jewish filmmaker Yoav Shamir caught Abe Foxman and the ADL letting their guard down in his excellent documentary Defamation. Watch it below and then tell me if you still think the ADL  is credible.

Mr. Smith was elected as one of two Republican Committeemen from Pittston City Ward 4.  He was elected with only one write-in vote – a vote that was most likely his own.  The other two write-in votes cast in this ward went to Mr. George Carmean, a long-time committee member of the LCRC. 

Pennsylvania State election code allows any registered Republican or Democrat to write their name in to become a member of the County Committee.  The Bylaws of the Luzerne County Republican Committee indicate that the only qualification for election to the County Committee be that one has been a registered Republican for the two years preceding their election.  There is no other eligibility requirement in this regard.  Also, there is no express provision in the bylaws of the LCRC that would authorize the Executive Committee or the District Committee to “expel” a member of the Committee for his or her “beliefs.”  

The Luzerne County Republican Committee does not endorse or represent any of the hateful views of Mr. Smith, nor did any of the voters in Pittston City or Luzerne County.  The efforts of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party and its affiliated media organizations to portray anything otherwise are incredibly disingenuous, shameful, and insulting to all residents of Luzerne County.  Their efforts, however, are indicative of the underhandedness in which they are willing to engage to advance their hypocrisy and political aims.

Mr. Smith elected himself to the LCRC with one vote. For media outlets like “Think Progress” or others to suggest that the people of Pittston, let alone the voters of Luzerne County, support this man in any significant number is shameful and insulting to all of the residents of Pittston and Northeast Pennsylvania, Democrat or Republican.  In an ill-researched post on ThinkProgress.org, Adam Peck wrote that, “Smith is also an active member of local Tea Party groups, a network that he used to gain support for his bid for the committee seat.”  This claim is blatantly false.  Smith has been banned from the NEPA Tea Party Facebook page and has not been welcome at their meetings.  Peck’s suggestion that Smith used the Tea Party network to gain support for his committee election would be laughable if this were not such a serious accusation.  This “story” is indicative of the underhanded, self-serving tactics used by the Pennsylvania Democratic Party and a happily complicit media, and illustrates the deep hypocrisy and lies they are willing to engage in for the basest political purposes.

Four years later, Casey’s statements about my views not representing the voters of Pittston City seem incredibly stupid. In the 2016 election in my ward , I got 70 votes out of 74 cast for my committee seat which is 94% of the vote.

If Casey was smart (which he obviously wasn’t), he should have brought up the fact that Philadelphia had a  Democratic committeeman named Jerry Jackson, who was also a member of the viciously anti-White New Black Panther Party. Watch below as Democratic committeeman Jerry Jackson hands out NBPP literature while his comrade King Samir Shabazz talks about killing Whites and their babies! These are real hateful views.

The Republican Party has a long and proud history of supporting and promoting Civil Rights for all Americans and any racially intolerant views are unequivocally not welcome in the County, State or National Republican Parties.  The nation’s first abolitionists were Republicans, no one fought harder for the abolition of slavery than Republican President Abraham Lincoln, The first African-American to run for President was Republican Frederick Douglas, The Civil Rights Act of 1964 would not have been passed without the support of Republican Senators from the Northeast, Martin Luther King Jr. Day was made a National Holiday by Republican President Ronald Reagan.  The issue at this time, however, is not the Civil Rights credentials of the Republican Party. The issue at this time is the hypocrisy of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party.

Mr. Casey shows his outstanding lack of knowledge concerning the racial views of our first Republican President Abraham Lincoln.

Here is a quote from Lincoln from 1858:

“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races; I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people.”

Not only did Lincoln make several quotes that I am sure that Casey would view as “hateful and abhorrent” , Lincoln also wanted to deport all the Blacks out of the United States to Central America.

Would Mr. Casey denounce Mr. Lincoln as racially intolerant ?

We sincerely regret the efforts of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party to create a political football out of an issue that both Democrats and Republicans should be anxiously ready to agree upon. In fact, the Luzerne County Democratic Party has joined with the LCRC to denounce Mr. Smith and his involvement, stating that, “Steve Smith obviously does not represent the Luzerne County Republican Party in any way, shape, or form.” We applaud the efforts of the Luzerne County Democratic Committee to join us in not only denouncing Mr. Smith, but to return political discourse to focusing on key issues at hand, like creating jobs and fixing our economy.  We encourage the Pennsylvania Democratic Party to do the same.

 Terry Casey lost his bid for re-election as GOP chairman a few weeks after making this ill-conceived press release.

Steven Smith — A Luzerne County Republican committeeman who describes himself as a “white rights advocate” won another term in Tuesday’s primary election and also said he voted for Donald Trump for president. Smith, a Pittston resident who insists he’s not a racist or white supremacist, said Trump “put immigration into the forefront of his candidacy” when explaining his vote for Trump.

 

A Luzerne County Republican committeeman who describes himself as a “white rights advocate” won another term in Tuesday’s primary election and also said he voted for Donald Trump for president.

Steven Smith, a Pittston resident who insists he’s not a racist or white supremacist, said Trump “put immigration into the forefront of his candidacy” when explaining his vote for Trump.

Smith was the only candidate on the ballot for two Republican committeeman positions in Pittston’s first ward. Smith got 70 votes, and there were four write-in votes, according to unofficial election results on the county website.

The Luzerne County Republican Committee engages in political activities and is not a public or government agency. Committee Chairman Bill Urbanski said the party can’t stop Smith from being a committeeman.

“There’s no mechanism for that,” Urbanski said. “That’s how it goes.”

The party elects two committee members from each of Luzerne County’s 180 voting precincts. Only 67 candidates were on Tuesday’s ballot for those positions.

Smith was elected as a committeeman four years ago with one write-in vote. Smith said he was appointed as secretary for the committee’s third district and is responsible for meeting minutes.

The term for an elected Republican committee member is four years.

Urbanski said Smith has no influence in the party.

“I don’t agree with 95 percent of what the guy stands for,” Urbanski said. “He should be registered with the American Nazi Party.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization, noted Smith’s election as Republican committeeman in a news release.

“With Trump winning by such a large margin in Luzerne County, unfortunately it is not surprising that Steve Smith, somebody with a long history of violence and activity with well-known racist and neo-Nazi groups, won the local Republican committee seat,” SPLC’s Intelligence Project Director Heidi Beirich said in a statement.

Trump won Pennsylvania’s Republican primary with 57 percent of the vote statewide. He won 77 percent of the vote in Luzerne County, Trump’s best showing in any county in the state.

Smith, 45, is a truck driver, according to election records. He is founder of the European American Action Coalition. The organization “fights for the interests of Whites,” its website says.

“We believe in grassroots activity that includes getting involved in the local political process,” the website says. “We currently have one openly pro-White elected Republican Party Committeeman in our ranks and it is our goal to have many more elected officials in the future.”

Smith said he attended Trump’s campaign rally Monday night in Wilkes-Barre Township. About 10,000 people were inside the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza for the event.

“It was quite the spectacle,” Smith said. “It was like going to a rock concert. That place was packed.”

In Smith’s precinct in Pittston, 149 Republicans voted Tuesday, and 120 voted for Trump, records show.

“There are flaws with Trump,” Smith said. “But the fact that he’s a self-made millionaire not controlled by establishment, it makes him resonate with people.”

In 2003, Smith pleaded guilty to ethnic intimidation and simple assault, both misdemeanors, and received a prison sentence of one to 12 months, court records show. During an interview in 2012, Smith said he spent two months in prison.

“The Cultural Marxists like to bring up my arrest on March 23, 2003, as an attempt to try to discredit me,” Smith wrote in a blog on the European American Action Coalition website.

According to a 2003 account in The Times-Tribune, Smith and two other members of the Keystone State Skinheads had bricks, called a black man by a derogatory name and asked the man if he had ever “got beat up by a skinhead.” The man ran, so the group drove by him in a vehicle, yelling racial slurs, and a brick was thrown at the black man, according to the account.

“He wasn’t even touched,” Smith said in 2012, explaining the incident in Scranton was the result of “drunken stupidity.”

In the blog post, Smith wrote he did not personally “verbally threaten nor attempt to physically harm” the black man.

“On my lawyer’s advice and the fact that a trial would have cost me thousands of dollars in legal fees, I pleaded guilty … Personally, I think I was sentenced harshly for my politics more than anything else,” he wrote

After Smith’s election in 2012, then-Committee Chairman Terry Casey issued a statement denouncing Smith’s “abhorrent views” and said the party was researching whether it could oust Smith from the committee.

“He’s an idiot. He’s a white coward,” Smith said of Casey on Thursday.
