Retired Professor Running For VP on Controversial Platform
By Adam Ghassemi
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Virginia Abernethy retired from teaching Psychology and Anthropology at Vanderbilt University's School of Medicine. Now, as a Professor Emeritus, she loves data.
Abernethy says population data reveals how illegal or mass immigration is putting America in danger.
"Europeans Americans are about to become a minority in this country," she said Monday.
A self-proclaimed "ethnic separatist", Abernethy warns today's politics gives power to racial groups while ignoring whites, or European Americans. "It's this Europeans tradition of law that I think is one of the things that's at risk as we get a population that doesn't share our traditions and hasn't grown up with these values," she said.
You'll find her at the bottom of your ballot along with running mate Merlin Miller. Both represent the American Third Position Party or "A3P".
"There's a real need to education European Americans to the fact that they common interests and that they are becoming a minority in this country and the things they value, which include rule of law as a very prominent one are threatened," she went on to say.
Some groups warn not to cast your vote just yet, calling Abernethy a dangerous white supremacist.
"This is an ugly, racist ideology that thinks that brown skinned people don't deserve to be in the United States, or are essentially sub par. It's just old-school white supremacy, racism dressed up in some fancy language often probably coming from her background with a PhD," said Heidi Beirich, Intelligence Project Director for the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Beirich also warned Abernethy is tied to some very ugly organizations, including A3P itself, which she says was founded by skin heads in California.
Abernethy insists she speaks for people who may be too fearful to speak up on their own and is being mischaracterized by groups out to get her. She says groups, like the Southern Poverty Law Center and others, are the real hate groups.
"The major hate groups in the United States are the people that throw around these labels," she said.
Abernathy was a part of Arizona's Proposition 200 a few years ago, which requires voters there to prove citizenship.
