DeBlog - Does cat still have Nazi's tongue?

DeWayne Bartels

It was just about a year ago that Phillip Anderson's buddies in the American National Socialist Workers' Party (the American Nazi Party) threatened myself and my family.

The threats came through Bill White, the head Nazi of the organization, in Virginia. 

One of the e-mails from White to me follows:

Mr Bartels:

There was an investigative reporter in Sarasota, Florida who once parked outside the home of a friend of mine for two weeks and threatened his children as they came in to his wife's day care.

The guy didn't stop until I found his kid at school and told him if he continued we'd photograph his kid and ask him if he knew what a bad man his daddy was.

The next day the guy stopped and ran an article in the newspaper claiming I'd "threatened" him.

If you exceed the boundaries of proper reporting and became invasive, impolite or a nuisance to our membership, understand that I can bring you back into polite behavior. Keep that in mind as you do your

story.

Bill White

The e-mail then went on to list places I've lived.

Anderson, then of Peoria Heights and maybe still, was upset because I went to his house to try to get some quotes from him on a story I was doing about him.

Anderson operates under the radar quite a bit.

Well, I issued an invitation a year ago to meet with him to talk.

He, so far, has not responded. 

He has, however, very recently posted on the Web some very nasty e-mails he sent to a couple of very fine PJS reporters.

One of the reporters showed them to me last night.

He did not respond to them because he said Anderson is just seeking publicity.

The thing is I don't think Anderson is seeking publicity. If he was he'd meet with me.

I've told him before in e-mails I would meet him anywhere, anytime and alone if he desires. He can bring anyone he wants.

I'm easy to find. I'm at at 692-6600 or e-mail me at dbartels@timestoday.com.

That invitation to talk is still open.
