Let us state for the record something that people who knew Marcus Epstein prior to a New York Times editorial in January picked up on a long time ago. He is a complete fool. An utter and complete fool. But who is more the fool, him or the people who propped him up in racist activism thinking they could use him and his ethnicity (half-Korean, half-Jewish) to get a pass on their own racist activism? And we're not just talking about some lunatic fringe scumbag either. We are talking with someone who is a DC player, someone who works closely with Pat Buchanan. Once we found out about him having a criminal record, it didn't take long to find out what was in it, and not only did we find an assault, but it's a hate crime - and he pled out and is going to be sentenced on July 8th! That is two years and a day from when he caught the charge by attacking a black woman. That's just months before he came on the scene with his racist Robert Taft Club, and since then he has been all over the place, especially over the past five months with his co-founding of Youth For Western Civilization (YWC), the university student organization that has been called out as a white supremacist group, and the group that sponsored ex-Rep. Tom Tancredo's visit to the University of North Carolina that was disrupted by protests. Of course the usual routine of denying any charges of racism on the part of conservatives in this crowd is there, and as mentioned before, Epstein's heritage has been used to shut critics up. Well, we are still talking, and with this news we also have one finger extended to that group. Let's see them try and weasel their way out of this one. Goodbye, Mr. Epstein. Goodbye YWC.

WASHINGTON, DC--Marcus Epstein, the young executive director of an organization chaired by Pat and Bay Buchanan, the reputed co-founder of a new racist college organization and a regular staple in paleoconservative circles, is to be sentenced for an assault on an African-American woman that has been classified as a hate crime, court records show.

According to documents obtained from District of Columbia's Superior Court, Epstein, 25, must appear before Judge Wendell P. Gardner on July 8 for sentencing after pleading guilty to simple assault charges stemming from an incident during the early evening hours of July 7, 2007. The documents state that Epstein was walking down the street making offensive remarks when he encountered the victim, called her the "N-word" and struck her in her head. He was briefly detained by the woman's husband, but was able to escape, only to be arrested minutes later by a Secret Service officer who witnessed the attack. According to the officer's statement, a friend of Epstein's informed him that he had been drinking.

A restraining order to stay away from the couple has been imposed on Epstein. He currently faces a maximum punishment of 180 days in jail and $1000 fine and also had to continue mental health treatment, complete an alcohol treatment program, write a letter of apology to the victim and donate $1000 to the United Negro College Fund prior to sentencing.

Dewinter and Vanhecke are top leaders in Vlaams Belang.

Epstein has been involved in political activism since his undergraduate days at the College of William and Mary, editing the Remnant, a now defunct conservative student newspaper on campus, and interning at the conservative Leadership Institute. In 2006 he founded the paleoconservative Robert Taft Club, and generated controversy when he attempted to hold a forum on conservatives and race at the Leadership Institute office building featuring his friend American Renaissance editor Jared Taylor on the panel. When learned of the nature of the forum, the Leadership Institute disallowed it to be held there, and it was moved. Epstein is also the executive director of The American Cause, the research foundation chaired by Pat Buchanan and Bay Buchanan that promotes an America First policy in trade, immigration, and foreign policy, and Team America PAC, a committee founded by former congressman Tom Tancredo and chaired by Bay Buchanan that supports an extremely restrictive immigration policy. Epstein's political activism also included appearing on The Political Cesspool, a white supremacist radio program hosted by Council of Conservative Citizen member James Edwards that proudly admits to hosting white supremacists and Neo-Nazi figures.

In January, a new organization, Youth for Western Civilization was founded with Epstein as its Vice-President. "Youth for Western Civilization will educate, organize and train activists on campuses across the nation to create a culture that will promote the survival of Western Civilization and pride in Western heritage," says the group in their mission statement on their website. "This movement is focused on the support of Western history, identity, high culture, and pride and opposition to radical multiculturalism, political correctness, racial preferences, mass immigration, and socialism." Speaking events sponsored by YWC chapters at Vanderbilt University, American University and the University of North Carolina have been held in the face of public protest. The UNC event in April was squashed as speaker Tancredo was disrupted by activists.

A press conference also in January with Epstein, Bay Buchanan, financial journalist Peter Brimelow, who also edits the racist anti-Hispanic website VDARE and Fox News correspondent Jim Pinkerton saw controversy for its call to the Republican Party to abandon reaching out to Hispanics and nonwhites and focus only on its white voting base. Because of his Jewish and Korean heritage, Epstein's presence has used by far right activists, supporters and by Epstein himself to deny charges of racism and anti-Semitism.

Epstein has already started to make plans to step off the political stage. According to the biography on his website, he has been admitted to the University of Virginia School of Law and will begin taking classes in August 2009. "I will more or less suspend my political activities," Epstein wrote.
