In brief, this site provides to links to articles and resources endorsed and published by the Evertsens' Minutemen Midwest:
1. Promoting a "blood and soil, kith and kin" definition of nationality based on Nazi philosophy. This article must be read to be believed:

2. Attacking "Legal" as well as "illegal" immigration, especially "third world" immigration. Makes claims that "third world immigrants can never assimilate." Previous link

3. Attacking people based on race, including referring to Obama as a "half-breed."

Note, this page makes the unusual claim that the MMMW author has done considerable research into racial identity. Much of this language can be found on a similar thread on teh Stormfront forum by searching quotes. This is cause to worry, as:

4. The top of these MMMW pages endorses a radio show called "THe Angry White Male Radio Hour: Perspectives on our Culture and Heritage" which has featured "Out" Stormfront member James Edwards. James Edwards and Rick Biesada have also been involved in MMMW events.

5. MMMW frequently links to 911 conspiracy theories implicating the Bush admin and implying Israeli or Jewish involvement: (Linked from:

6. Leader Diane Evertsen has published numerous statements that go beyond the issue of immigration to attack Mexican culture, such as  references to "the Mexican brain-drain populous," the middle finger being "the Mexican salute to Americans," the "four letter Mexican word f**k, etc. This article also proudly notes voter intimidation tactics, such as taking pictures of Mexicans (presumably legal) who were registering to vote.

7. Published at least one article by a known holocaust denier whom they refer to as their "good friend..."

I could go on and on, the MMMW website is a clearing house for conspiracy theories and hate.

All of this is very timely and important as the Evertsens have been active organizers of Tea Party events often featuring hate groups. Evert is listed as a state contact person for some tea party groups and has been quoted as a tea party representative in some state media accounts.

When their role as leaders of the MMMW became public, the website was immediately removed by changing their personal user settings (as can be confirmed by the google error message.) It's important to document their involvement in hate while the materials are still available.

Background on this blog, Diane Evertsen and the Minutemen Midwest

"An invasion is taking place. Whether by means of legal or illegal immigration, the third-world hordes are invading the first world, and they are taking no prisoners. If this is not stopped now, America within one generation will be a third-world sewer."
This website is intended to grow into an archive of articles publicly published by the Minutemen Midwest. Though I will aim to "polish" this hastily constructed site into something more academic, it will not be without a "point of view."

The MMMW published advocacy articles, hosted by the Evertsens on a domain owned by them (public record.) Among these articles, you'll find information on the immigration issue, some of which comes from respectable mainstream sources.

But the Evertsens' MMMW also published articles that are undeniably hate speech, for example, The Third World Invasion of America, which goes far beyond advocacy against undocumented immigration to state that LEGAL immigration is as bad as "illegal," that "third world" immigrants can never assimilate, that you have to have the right blood to be an American and that the solution is to prepare for a race war.
Invaders from the Orient, Asia, Africa, Central and South America are invading the first world, and they are intent only upon conquest. (cut) Americans have been duped by the left-wing notion of a “proposition nation” and by myths about third-world assimilation, neither of which will occur. Historically, nations have been built upon blood and soil, kith and kin, ancestral rites, and genealogical ties. A real nation is but an extension of a tribe, and this realization should be shared by all traditionalists, conservatives, paleolibertarians, patriotic liberals, union democrats, and moderates. The “creedal nation” (one only has to believe in propositions to be a good citizen) is a lie; it is but a Trojan horse to implement the third-world invasion of America.

The implication that race is the foundation of American nationality is something to be concerned about. As is the opposite statement, that race is to blame for negative attributes and behavior:
This should really be no surprise. With the exception of a very small upper class of pure European blood, most Mexicans are either Amerindian or Mestizo (mostly Amerindian with a few drops of Spaniard or African blood). They are not Western; genealogically they are Asiatic; and they despise the West. Recently they have demanded the purging of all "European elements" from their Mass and have called for the removal of "all white authors" from their schools’ reading lists. They in fact are children of Aztlan, intent upon reconquista, the retaking of the Southwest.

Mestizos too self-identify with terrorists. We know for a fact that Mexicans are helping terrorists sneak across the US-Mexico border. We know that many Mestizo groups are in contact with terrorist cells in India and Bangladesh. At a soccer game in Mexico recently, the crowd erupted in applause when a picture of Bin Laden was shown on the screen.

This interest in race and blood, "culture and heritage" is found throughout the MMMW materials, and recommended links, such as to VDARE, a "not exclusively" white supremacist site.

Furthermore, in the MMMW pages linked below, there is a disturbing theme that vigilante violence may be  necessary to solve this problem, which is also demonstrated in this article:
There is a war going on, and it is the third-world invasion of America. It will not be fought between nations, but it will be fought in backyards and parking lots across America. Loyal Americans will take up arms, join militias, and defend their homeland....

War in the streets indeed will be the future, unless action is now taken....
What can be done to stop this invasion? What are patriotic Americans to do? Become informed, be vigilant, join groups, buy arms, join militias, and prepare for potential conflict. We are under attack! Hostes delendi sunt!
As previously stated, this article is not representative of all MMMW materials, but it provides a strong example of the extremes of rhetoric to which this group is willing to go. And it is also not an isolated example. It also provides interesting insight into the cultural atmosphere that has created the Minutemen Midwest and the fringe of the "patriot" and "tea party" movements.

Diane Evertsen's leadership of the Minutemen Midwest

Those who only know Diane from her campaign literature would be surprised to learn of her long time leadership of the Minutemen Midwest, a group listed as a Nativist Extremist group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, for publishing materials such as those above.

Although it's clear that the leadership of the Minutemen Midwest has been a major part of her life, it is not even mentioned on her candidate website.

However, one has no problem in finding Diane's listed as President of the Minutemen Midwest, from 2006-present.

Here is just one such listing (in this case, from Ifire, another group Diane is affiliated with) taken from a quick Google search.

The website is registered to the Evertsen's address and Evert Evertsen is listed as the Administrative and Technical contact, giving the Evertsen's personal control and responsibility over what is published.

MMMW: "Obama--NOT the first African American President" Because He's a "halfbreed."

This article is published as a direct opinion of the MMMW. Obama--Not the First African American President.

Among some very questionable language about race, you'll notice a strange remark that the author has done considerable research on the topic of race, including that of "melungeons." Just another direct confirmation of MMMW's consistent focus on race.

Research Tools for Viewing the Minutemen Midwest Page

In January of 2010, after Diane Evertsen's leadership role with the Minutemen Midwest was disclosed at a pubic forum at Mchenry County College, the MMMW website went down due to a change to the user security settings. ( I will post later about the controversy about HOW this website went down, as Diane's supporters on the Northwest Herald blog initially alleged it was due to "hacker" activity, but it was actually change made by the user, as can be seen from the "error message.")

However, we should all know by now that when you post something on the internet, it will be there forever and a day. Here are some tools that will allow you to do your own research on the Minutemen Midwest, view the pages that were hosted there until January 2010, and draw your own conclusions.
