Radio host Anthony Cumia, who was fired from SiriusXM after a series of racially charged tweets, appeared on the “pro-White” Political Cesspool radio show hosted by white nationalist James Edwards. During the appearance, Cumia defended white males against diversity concerns, agreed that the black community has become like a “petulant” child, and praised Edwards for his views on race.
Cumia was part of SiriusXM's The Opie and Anthony Show until he was fired in early July after he went on a Twitter tirade against the black community following a street altercation. The shock jock claimed he was “taking pix in NYC & a black girl who was in frame punched me in the face.” He added the “automatic jump to violence in that community is astounding. No discussion. It's start punching at the least little thing. Uncivilized!!” SiriusXM fired Cumia “after careful consideration of his racially charged and hate-filled remarks.”
Cumia was then a guest on the August 2 broadcast of the Memphis-based The Political Cesspool, which describes itself as representing "a philosophy that is pro-White ... We wish to revive the White birthrate above replacement level fertility and beyond to grow the percentage of Whites in the world relative to other races." The show also states it has rallied to support “pro-Confederate” causes against “black malcontents.”
Edwards wrote that he had Cumia on The Political Cesspool to discuss “the next phase of his career and his plan to talk openly and honestly about racial issues. This is what a REAL conversation about race sounds like.” During the hour-long interview, Cumia complained about how white males are treated as “the abomination of the United States” despite their “astounding” historical achievements. He continued, citing the NASA Apollo program:
CUMIA: When you watch any of the footage of any of the Apollo programs over the years and you look at the control room of mission control, what do you see? Do you see diversity there? Honestly, let's be honest. You're seeing white males smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee at the console and putting people on the moon. How is this a horrible thing? How is this something to look at and say, “We need to change this by injecting people that do not pay attention to the laws of this country, do not assimilate to the cultures, do not work and contribute to this nation”? Why is this a good thing to then add these people into the formula to make this a great country? Diversity for the sense of just diversity is not a good thing. And when I talk about race and try to be open and honest about it in this day and age, you're chastised, you're looked at as the racist.
Cumia explained that liberals “don't want open and honest dialogue [on race] ... They want the continued victimization and excuses that go out. The second you literally bring up the real problems that are happening in this country as far as certain communities go, you're chastised, you're given that scarlet letter which is now R -- 'racist.' And there's no way to discuss this as a white, especially male American without being called a racist.”
Edwards later claimed “a significant percentage of the black community, let's just put it that way, have become like a petulant child,” prompting Cumia to reply, “yes.” Edwards added that the black community is “someone that just thinks that they can throw a fit and get what they want” and “they've gotten the shakedown thing going here.”
Cumia was clearly fond of Edwards. At one point, Edwards lamented that "'racist means white person now. If you say anything other than what is approved speech, you are a racist. It means everything, it means nothing." Cumia responded by saying, “I really want to just hang out with you and drink a few beers and talk for a while. We are on the same page, my friend.” Edwards ended the show by imploring his pro-white audience to support Cumia's new radio program, stating: “We've got to support the honest people. We've got to support the truth tellers. Political correctness is a disease.”
The Anti-Defamation League has criticized Edwards for having “white supremacist views” and interviewing “a variety of anti-Semites, white supremacists, Holocaust deniers, conspiracy theorists and anti-immigrant leaders.” The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) wrote that Edwards “has probably done more than any of his contemporaries on the American radical right to publicly promote neo-Nazis, Holocaust deniers, raging anti-Semites and other extremists” and that his program “has become the primary radio nexus of hate in America.” The SPLC notes that The Political Cesspool's guest roster reads like a “Who's Who” of radical racists, with guests like “Holocaust denier Mark Weber, Canadian white supremacist Paul Fromm, American Renaissance editor Jared Taylor, neo-Nazi activist April Gaede," and “anti-Semitic professor Kevin MacDonald."
Edwards' hero and repeat guest is anti-Semite and former KKK leader David Duke, of whom Edwards claims: “Contrary to the false image of a drooling 'racist' that the MSM would like to paint, David is a very thoughtful, intelligent, and gracious individual.” Edwards adds that he counts Duke “as a friend” and “I can honestly tell you that there is not a single negative thing that I can say about the man.”
His thoughts on social issues are clear on his blog, where he's written of the black community: “For blacks in the Americas, slavery is the greatest thing that ever happened to them. Unfortunately, it's the worst thing that ever happened to white Americans” and “MLK's dream is our nightmare.” Edwards also warns against interracial relationships, writing that “Interracial sex is white genocide.”
