The National Policy Institute is a white nationalist think tank based in Arlington, Virginia.

Activities[edit]

NPI was founded in 2005 by William Regnery II.[1] Until 2010, NPI's chairman was Louis R. Andrews. Andrews died in late 2011 and was replaced by Richard B. Spencer, who had been acting Director at the end of Andrews's life. NPI had been based in Augusta, Georgia, but migrated to Virginia with the change in leadership.

The Institute's authors have produced a series of reports on affirmative action, race and conservatism, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and at least one annual report, entitled The State of White America 2007 by Vdare contributor Nicholas Stix.[2]

MSNBC reported that Andrews voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 US Presidential Election in order, he said, to help destroy the Republican Party so that it can be reborn into a party that will support the "interests of white people".[3]

In September 2011, NPI hosted its first national conference, entitled "Towards a New Nationalism." Speakers included Richard B. Spencer, Alex Kurtagic, Tomislav Sunic and Jared Taylor.[4]

In October 2013, NPI hosted another national conference, "After the Fall." Speakers included some from the previous conference including Richard B. Spencer, Alex Kurtagic and Tomislav Sunic along with new speakers such as Alain de Benoist, Jack Donovan and William Regnery II.[5][6]

In December 2013, NPI launched a new website, Radix Journal, which describes itself as, "a periodical on culture, race, meta-politics, critical theory, and society." [7]

The Institute is reported to have received a grant from the Pioneer Fund.[8]

Condemned by SPLC as a white supremacy organization[edit]

On April 8, 2008, the SPLC’s Mark Potok[9] condemned the National Policy Institute as a “white supremacist” organization, and wrote that its report, The State of White America-2007, “paints ‘a statistical and narrative portrait of the war on white America,’ in the website’s words. Nicholas Stix’s introduction [10] to the article describes the Supreme Court’s 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education ruling outlawing school segregation as ‘arguably the worse [sic] decision in the Court’s 216 year history.’ He claims later civil rights legislation was unconstitutional. ‘[I]ntegration and the civil rights movement led directly to the destruction of great cities,’ he concludes.”
