Imagine2050 Staff • Sep 16, 2016

There Goes the Neighborhood is a weekly series from Imagine 2050 staff highlighting upcoming nativist events.

This week, the far-right Eagle Forum’s national conference, anti-Muslim events in Virginia, and an anti-immigrant presentation in North Carolina.

Eagle Forum, the long-running far-right group founded by the late Phyllis Schlafly, will hold it’s annual “Eagle Council” conference in St. Louis, Missouri beginning today, September 16 through Sunday, September 19. Speakers at this year’s conference include former ambassador John Bolton and David Horowitz, founder of the virulently anti-Muslim David Horowitz Freedom Center. This year’s conference, the 45th installment, will feature a memorial for Schlafly. The prominent far-right activist died on September 5 and the age of 92.

On Tuesday, September 20, the Coastal Carolina Taxpayers Association will host Jim Robb, of the anti-immigrant group NumbersUSA, in New Bern, North Carolina. Robb will be joined by Ron Woodard, of local anti-immigrant group NC Listen.

On Thursday, September 22, noted anti-Muslim activist Robert Spencer will speak in Ashburn, Virginia. Spencer will give a presentation titled, “Iran and ISIS: The Jihad Threat and Washington’s Denial” and an event organized by the Northern Virginia chapter of anti-Muslim group ACT for America. Spencer runs the anti-Muslim blog Jihad Watch as project of the David Horowitz Freedom Center and is a close associated of anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller.

Also on Thursday, September 22, the anti-Muslim think tank Center for Security Policy (CSP) will co-sponsor an invitation-only security in Tysons Corner, Virginia. Speakers at the symposium include Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.), an advisor to both the Trump campaign and ACT for America. Flynn also spoke at ACT’s national conference last week. CSP is co-sponsoring the symposium with the Association of Old Crows and CACI International Inc.
