"People call our literature "Hate literature" - all it is is the truth, literature that reflects on minorities negatively. It's the facts, can't argue with the facts."

BEN SMITH GREW UP IN AN AFFLUENT CHICAGO SUBURB-PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE SAY HIS HATRED IS OUT OF PLACE FOR THAT NEIGHBORHOOD. BUT IT WAS THERE HE DEVELOPED HIS ANGER TOWARD NON-WHITES. DREW LEVINSON: "Smith recently joined the world church of the creator-a white supremacist group headed by a man named Matt Hale. Hale has said he does not condone violence, but he makes no apologies for Smith's actions." SPEAKING ON CBS THIS MORNNG HALE SAID SMITH DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO. MATT HALE/"WORLD CHURCH OF THE CREATOR: "I was very proud of him for his activism, for his commitment to our cause and bringing the news of creativity, our religion and to our white people."
HALE SAYS THE TWO MEN HAD A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP-AND THAT SMITH WAS DEDICATED TO PRESERVING WHITE PEOPLE. IN THE PBS INTERVIEW SMITH SAID THAT'S WHY HE HANDED OUT THE FLIERS.
