Aryan Nation goes to Baghdad

Exactly who are these 'skinheads?' And WHY would they want to join the military?

"We've got Aryan Nations graffiti in Baghdad," the group quoted a Defense Department investigator as saying in a report to be posted today on its Web site, www.splcenter.org. "That's a problem."

A Defense Department spokeswoman said officials there could not comment on the report because they had not yet seen it.

The center called on Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld to appoint a task force to study the problem, declare a new zero tolerance policy and strictly enforce it.

The report quotes Scott Barfield, a Defense Department investigator, saying, "Recruiters are knowingly allowing neo-Nazis and white supremacists to join the armed forces, and commanders don't remove them from the military even after we positively identify them as extremists or gang members."

Mr. Barfield said Army recruiters struggled last year to meet goals. "They don't want to make a big deal again about neo-Nazis in the military," he said, "because then parents who are already worried about their kids signing up and dying in Iraq are going to be even more reluctant about their kids enlisting if they feel they'll be exposed to gangs and white supremacists."
So, they LIE. Good call.
[There is] an online network of neo-Nazis.

"They're communicating with each other about weapons, about recruiting, about keeping their identities secret, about organizing within the military," he said. "Several of these individuals have since been deployed to combat missions in Iraq."

The report cited accounts by neo-Nazis of their infiltration of the military, including a discussion on the white supremacist Web site Stormfront. "There are others among you in the forces," one participant wrote. "You are never alone."

An article in the National Alliance magazine Resistance urged skinheads to join the Army and insist on being assigned to light infantry units.

The Southern Poverty Law Center identified the author as Steven Barry, who it said was a former Special Forces officer who was the alliance's "military unit coordinator."

"Light infantry is your branch of choice because the coming race war and the ethnic cleansing to follow will be very much an infantryman's war," he wrote. "It will be house-to-house, neighborhood-by-neighborhood until your town or city is cleared and the alien races are driven into the countryside where they can be hunted down and 'cleansed.' "

He concluded: "As a professional soldier, my goal is to fill the ranks of the United States Army with skinheads. As street brawlers, you will be useless in the coming race war. As trained infantrymen, you will join the ranks of the Aryan warrior brotherhood."
I know nothing about National Alliance or Resistance. And, by now it should be clear that I am not racist and that I believe every man and woman is accountable to the same God. But, from what I've seen at Stormfront, many of their members are against Israeli policies.

In other words, nothing is black and white - not even our common understanding of racism and neo-nazis.

What does it matter that you are 'racist' if you do not condone indiscriminate killing? Or, conversely, what does it matter that you are not 'racist', if you support the genocide in Palestine?

Of course no one wants to be labeled as a "racist"- God forbid- as no one wants to identify with others of their own race, unless of course it's the NAACP, LaRaza, Mecha, the ADL or any other race other than White people.

In the words of Harvard's Joel Ignatiev- the White race simply needs to be "abolished".

This propaganda- brought to you by the same folks who brought you Elohim City and the OKC bombing- is late in coming as the first article about gang graffitti focused solely on the Latin Kings and the Crips- but hey, that's okay with the SPLC because those are races that are encouraged to self identify.

You are correct, if what you glean about Whites who self identify comes from sources like the SPLC and the ADL, you just might get a skewed perspective. Anyone who notices what the Zionists are up to is bad mojo and must hurry onto the back of the evil nazi hater anti semite racist cart for a one way trip to extinction.

No doubt that the man who pulled a knife on someone in the street should be arrested and punished. (By most measures I can be considered a "leftie.")

But, shutting down a website in Arizona and arresting its founders because of what some lunatic did on his own in the streets of Warsaw?

This has serious implications. By this logic, anyone who opposes Israeli policy might also be jailed if someone on the other side of the world decides - on his own accord - to oppose Israeli policies using violence after visiting blogs like yours truly's. This is fascist and draconian.

Whether certain members of the website may be liable for damages, in the event that they expressly incited attacks on a specific group, is a separate and distinct issue from whether their website should be blocked and altogether put out of business AND their founders arrested!

These are extreme measures and based on the information provided in this report, apparently unwarranted. Aside from phone numbers and addresses - the names of activists is presumably public knowledge. Unless there was something additional - like specific incitement to violence - how can they be held responsible for the attack?

In a country that protects the freedom to speak, especially about political issues, this development is both alarming and unwelcomed.

Here are some more views on the Warsaw incident and the closure of the website.

They found Latino base gang graffiti there as well.
