European-American Unity and Rights Organization
The European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO) is a white nationalist organization in the United States. Led by former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke, it was founded in 2000.
Initially, it was to be called the National Organization for European-American Rights (or NO FEAR), until the use of the name was legally challenged by No Fear Inc. The group was one of the original signatories of the New Orleans Protocol, a mostly US-based alliance of white nationalist and white supremacist groups.
The statement of principles sets out eight main goals for the organization, which are as follows:
- Equal rights for White Americans, particularly through an end to affirmative action.
- An end to desegregation busing, which they blame for declining educational standards, increased racial tension, and the wasting of public money.
- Welfare reform that would see welfare recipients made to work for their money, and the encouragement of family planning.
- Tougher sentencing for violent crime, alongside the repealing of hate crime legislation.
- Very strict limitations on immigration.
- An end to media portrayal of whites as oppressors.
- The preservation of white heritage.
- A demand for excellence in all things.
In an October 2007 article the author wrote (commenting on what he called Hitler's "workers paradise" "The beautiful Germany of the 1930s with blonde children happily running through every village has been replaced with a multi-racial cesspool. Out of work Africans can be seen shuffling along the same streets, which used to be clean and safe in the days of the National Socialists. One day, people in Germany will grow tired of the politically correct police state that is destroying their lives. They will recover their national pride and start speaking the truth about their past regardless of what the militant lesbians or thought police tell them. Once that happens, Germany may finally be a great nation again -free of foreign control."
In 2006 the group's ex-leader in Idaho Stan Hess courted controversy when he ran unsuccessfully for election to the North Idaho College Board of Trustees. His campaign focused on what he described as "the European American human rights movement", with Hess advocating the establishment of a European American Studies programme and the designation of a "European American Heritage Month" in October. According to an article in the Spokesman Review "he said he severed ties with the group about a year ago. Started by Ku Klux Klansman David Duke, Hess said the group’s ties to the KKK concerned him and that he found it difficult to work within a large organization. He served as president of the organization’s California chapter prior to moving to North Idaho in 2003.".
