Hate Group, FAIR, Is Looking for "Ethnically Ambiguous" Actors to Amplify Its Racism

We just got word that the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated a hate group, is holding a casting call in Atlanta tomorrow for a new web video that will change the hearts and minds of the average American.   

Think you have what it takes to be a mouthpiece for hate?

They will pay $500 to "ethnically ambiguous" actors in their 20s or 30s, with no Southern accent, who can work with a teleprompter -- to help them put a modern face on their extreme agenda and disguise their clear ties to white nationalism.

FAIR spends millions of dollars a year on online ads to promote videos like this on websites -- including some progressive ones you know and read. So if you get the part, you could be the envy of  “ethnically ambiguous” racists across the country!

Watch this to learn what FAIR's like when the teleprompter turns off:

To help you out, here are some quotes from FAIR leaders. Try practicing them in front of the mirror before heading to the casting call.

John Tanton,  FAIR Founder and Board Director, and publisher of the Social Contract Press, a white nationalist hate zine:

"As Whites see their power and control over their lives declining, will they simply go quietly into the night? or will there be an explosion?"

Donald Mann, FAIR National Board of Advisors:

"We should give incentives to low-income people who agree to sterilization. We should make available free abortion to low-income people on demand. And companies should cut back or deny maternity leave to women who have more than two children."

Dan Stein, FAIR President:

"It's almost like [Asians and Hispanics] are getting into competitive breeding."

John Tanton, FAIR Founder and Board Director, and publisher of the Social Contract Press, comparing immigrants to bacteria:

"In the bacteriology lab, we have culture plates. You put a bug in there and it starts growing and gets bigger and bigger and bigger. And it grows until it finally fills the whole plate. And it crashes and dies."

In addition to its online ads, FAIR has front groups set up to dupe African Americans, labor union members, progressives, non-“ethnically ambiguous” Hispanics (that’s me!) and environmentalists into believing that FAIR’s white nationalist agenda is in their best interest. 

This video will be a part of the hate group’s "online university," which will help everyday people learn how to talk about the need for racial profiling, mass deportation, and racial division. 

So if you’re a little "too black," "too brown," "too white," or if you’re over 30, don’t worry -- you’ll get a shot at stardom soon enough.

The casting is going to be held at Magick Lantern Video Production in Atlanta, though you’ll have to try getting the time from FAIR (we couldn’t track it down). 

Good luck!
