White supremacist invites mayor to rally - York Daily Record, 3 Sept 2001 [cached]
Joe Roy, director of the Intelligence Project for the Montgomery, Ala.-based Southern Poverty Law Center, said Barrett is viewed as "a joke" in the white-supremacist movement.
"He's not respected by the rest of the hate community," Roy said."He's seen as a grand-stander."
Barrett's rally, dubbed "Independence from Crime Day," is scheduled to begin noon Wednesday at the county courthouse in Morristown, N.J.
"I think Barrett probably sees an opportunity to get some media attention," Roy said.
The Times-News Online -- Twin Falls, Idaho, 23 June 2003 [cached]

When Widner called, says ..., 31 Oct 2011 [cached]
When Widner called, says Joseph Roy, "it was like the Osama Bin Laden of the movement calling in."
Roy is chief investigator of hate and extreme groups for the SPLC.
"Very rarely have we met a reformed racist skinhead," says Roy.
Over the years, Roy had dubbed Widner the "pit bull" of skinheads.
"No one was more aggressive, more confrontational, more notorious," Roy said.
And yet, over several weeks of conversations with Bryon and Julie, he became convinced. There was something different about this couple - a sincerity, a raw determination to put the past behind them and to seek some sort of redemption.
In March 2007 Roy and an assistant flew to Michigan. Roy still marvels at the memory of the guy with the freakish face walking out to greet them, wearing a "World's Greatest Dad" sweat shirt, holding his baby boy in one arm while a little girl clung to his other one.
"He was in a bad place," Roy said.
For his part, Roy promised to ask his organization to do something it had never done before - search for a donor to pay for Widner's tattoos to be surgically removed.
So when Roy called a couple of months later saying a donor was willing to pay for the surgery, Widner could hardly believe it.
