Marcus Epstein Karate Chops His Way to Racist Superstardom

Oh, Marcus. Washington Independent:

On July 7, 2007, Marcus Epstein had too much to drink and stumbled onto Georgetown’s scenic, shop-lined M Street, walking in no particular direction. At 7:15 p.m., he bumped into a black woman, called her a “nigger,” and struck her in the head with an open hand. An off-duty Secret Service agent was watching. Epstein “jogged away,” according to the agent’s affidavit, and when Epstein was finally chased down, he “continued to flail his arms while being taken into custody.”

And that wasn't just any strike - the U.S. Attorney's office called it a "karate chop." He's scheduled to be sentenced on July 8 (OnePeople'sProject has a slew of scanned court documents). He was originally charged with a hate crime, but pled it down to assault. SPLC's Hatewatch lays out what Epstein has coming:

He faces a maximum punishment of 180 days in jail and a $1000 fine. He’s under a restraining order to stay away from the couple involved, has agreed to seek 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.

Marcus Epstein, racist karate chopper for Tom Tancredo and Pat Buchanan$1000 to UNCF? That's got to sting. How many times will you have to mow David Duke's lawn to make that back?

So who is Marcus Epstein, anyway? Oh, where to begin...

Dubbed "the man who seems to be vying for the World's Second Darkest White Supremacist" by OnePeople'sProject, Epstein is a frequent writer for far-right outlets like Human Events, The American Conservative, The Washington Examiner, the anti-semitic Taki's Mag, and racist/anti-immigrant sites like VDARE. He's also linked with the founding of the white nationalist Youth for Western Civilization (started by his good friend Kevin DeAnna).

He also does his fair share of legwork for the far right: Epstein founded the Washington DC Robert Taft Club (yes, the Taft of Taft-Hartley infamy) which often features white supremacist speakers, is the executive director of Tom Tancredo's Team America PAC, and runs Pat and Bay Buchanan's The American Cause.

Memorable Epstein quotes:

"Diversity can be good in moderation — if what is being brought in is desirable. Most Americans don't mind a little ethnic food, some Asian math whizzes, or a few Mariachi dancers — as long as these trends do not overwhelm the dominant culture." [source]

"A number of Miami's boosters, including Time Magazine, have dubbed it 'The Capital of Latin America.'

But why are Americans supposed to like this?

Even the Cuban immigrants, still preponderantly white, law-abiding, Republican-voting, affable people are not desirable if they don't assimilate. Perhaps a few Little Havanas are manageable in a huge country, just as many Americans may see a few isolated Chinatowns as an exotic novelty. The problem is when the Little Havanas become Big Havanas and the Chinatowns become Chinacities or even Chinastates." [source]

Looking at a tapestry in Ethiopia:

"It's no Sistine Chapel, but you know what Samuel Johnson said about a Dog walking on it's hind legs." [source]

Here's what Samuel Johnson said: "Sir, a woman's preaching is like a dog's walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all."

Not so tough when not on the interbutts, are you Marcus? When you attack people of color in real life, your internet buddies and Stormfront trolls aren't there to back you up. I'm glad more and more people linked with Youth for Western Civilization are pulling out their fasces for all to see.

UPDATE: I don't know how I missed this; looks like UVA Law un-accepted him. Well, there's always Liberty University Law, right?


This whole article is a complete lie...the author should be ashamed of himself.

Yeah, those are called "links." Feel free to use them to verify claims made in this post!

John Riley pwned!
