White supremacist ‘Creators’ pamphlet Hudson

A newsletter tossed on driveways in at least one Hudson neighborhood during the weekend didnt sit well with resident Donna Keegan.

She unrolled the four-page letter she found on her driveway Saturday morning, thinking it was an advertisement for a local lawn service. Instead, she got an invitation to join a white supremacist group.

I just wondered who the heck would do that in this neighborhood. Hudson is such a nice little town. I never expected something like this here, said Keegan.

White Supremacy

This racist worldview easily is one of the dumbest philosophies ever concocted. Not surprisingly, the beliefs and actions of its adherents tend to directly contradict their notion of ‘supremacy.’

She threw it in the trash and didnt think more of it until a neighbor called police. Thats how she found out several of her neighbors also got flyers.

Hudson Police Sgt. David Bianchi said the newsletters were distributed across town. Some residents took the time to bring the papers into the station.

Others just called, I think mostly to say, What is this crap? And just to let us know what was going on, said Bianchi.

Although no laws were violated, Bianchi said the way the newsletters were tossed in driveways constitutes littering.

If we found someone doing that again, Id advise them they were littering. Its a mess. We cant have these newsletters blowing around the neighborhood, said Bianchi. He also said several officers recall similar newsletters being distributed the same way last year.

The group, New England Creativity, is part of the Creativity Movement, formerly known as the World Church of the Creator, touted as a religious group based in Missouri.

Background information on the group posted on the Anti Defamation Leagues Boston regional Web site says the group motto, RaHoWa, advocates Racial Holy War.

Creators, as followers call themselves, consider the white race as natures highest creation. The Creators version of the Golden Rule: What is good for the White Race is the highest virtue; what is bad for the White Race is the ultimate sin. Jews and nonwhites (referred to as the mud races) are considered sub-human and deemed natural enemies, according to the posting at www.adl.org.

Although the flyer left in Keegans driveway said the group uses peaceful means to spread its message, group leader Matthew Hale was recently found guilty in an Illinois courtroom of plotting to have a federal judge murdered.

On April 26 Hale was found guilty in U.S. District Court in Chicago of two counts of soliciting the murder of U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow.

Lefkow had previously ordered Hale to stop using the name World Church of the Creator because it had been trademarked by an Oregon-based religious group with no ties to Hales group.

During the trial prosecutors played more than a dozen tapes of Hale making racial slurs. And one tape captured Hale laughing over the 1999 shooting rampage by one of his followers, Benjamin Smith, who targeted minorities in a spree that killed two people, including former Northwestern University basketball coach Ricky Byrdsong, before turning the gun on himself.

Hale earned a law degree and passed the bar exam but was denied a license in 1999 by an Illinois committee that rules on the character and fitness of prospective lawyers.

The groups extremist views are included in this excerpt from the groups 16 Commandments, posted on its Web site, www.creativityne.org:

Remember that the inferior coloured (sic) races are our deadly enemies, and the most dangerous of all is the Jewish race. It is our immediate objective to relentlessly expand the White Race, and keep shrinking our enemies.
