Keep Racist Skinheads out of the Twin Cities
After Wade Michael Page gunned down a temple full of Sikh worshippers in Milwaukee, we have had an ugly reminder about how depraved some people can be. What became clear in the days after the gunman struck was this man's affiliation with an established white power group, the Hammerskins.
If you see a racist neo Nazi, don't listen to them. They have a habit of lying. They'll tell you the holocaust didn't happen, that the 9/11 attacks were committed by Israel and anything else you just might be ignorant enough to believe. The thing is that they "get" ignorant and that is because they are ignornant.
Some skinheads and racists like to hide their racism in clever ways
If you hear anyone who is a skinhead or who is not a skinhead say he or she is only into keeping the races separate, they are still a dangerous Nazi. There is no such thing as Nazi-light. People who say are racists who are cowards who fear being exposed as a racists. Racists also do this to subtly introduce their hate speech and recruit other haters.
The ideology of racial separation comes from one of the most violent and destructive hate groups in the United State, the National Alliance. The Anti-Defamation League has an article about the National Alliance entitled, "Explosion of Hate- the Growing Danger of the National Alliance" which is mandatory reading for people who want to be safe and free from racists. This article also shows racial separation as being merely the first phase in a violent, bloody agenda of this white power group:
"Separation or Annihilation
The October 1995 issue of Free Speech, a monthly newsletter sent to financial supporters of the NA's American Dissident Voices radio program, seems to have had a particular impact on Shoemake. The issue featured an article called "Separation or Annihilation," which exhorted readers to choose between "racial separation" and "annihilation" of whites. It stated that "attaining racial separation and avoiding racial annihilation is worth any cost. We should be willing to give up every material thing we own to achieve it." Along the margins of the essay, Shoemake scrawled: "I say: Separation or annihilation! Who is crazy? Me or you? We will see." Shoemake repeated the NA's slogan in a final, rambling letter obtained and published by the Jackson, Mississippi, Clarion-Ledger. Shoemake wrote: "Black is the problem. It's in their genes. . . . They will never forgive whites for all the supposedly terrible treatment we did to them. The bottom line is: Separation or annihilation."
Nazis are dangerous!
We know from Wade Michael Page that Nazis will get pissy and have (bloody) temper tantrums. This is as good a reason as any to kick them out of your community. The Anti-Defamation League shows exactly how dangerous these Nazis are:
"The Turner Diaries & Hunter
The NA's propaganda, which includes some of the most racist, anti-Semitic and explicitly violent materials available, has had a far greater impact on the country than the group's membership activities. Most significantly, The Turner Diaries, William Pierce's novel of racist revolution, is considered required reading by virtually every member of the American white supremacist movement. The book describes -- in gory, graphic and unabashedly racist passage after passage -- a world takeover by an all-white army called the "Organization," and the army's systematic extermination of Blacks, Jews and "race traitors."
Hunter: Glorifying Racial Murder
Pierce's sequel to The Diaries, called Hunter, tells the story of a drive-by killer who tries to cleanse America of its "sickness" by murdering interracial couples and eventually "working his way up" to assassinating Jews. Hunter is dedicated to the racist murderer and synagogue bomber Joseph Paul Franklin, who confessed to killing as many as 18 individuals between 1977 and 1980 in an attempt to start "a race war." His victims included random Blacks, Jews and interracial couples. Franklin, who is on death row in Missouri, is praised in the novel as "the Lone Hunter, who saw his duty as a White man and did what a responsible son of his race must do."
The Mechanics of Terrorist Activity
In The Turner Diaries, such painstaking attention is paid to the mechanics of terrorist activity that the book cannot be dismissed as merely a work of fiction. Pierce has admitted that his motives were hardly pure when he wrote the novel. Speaking to The Washington Post shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing, he said, "I don't have the time to write just for entertainment. It's to explain things to people. I'd like to see North America become a white continent." Indeed, in practice, The Turner Diaries is regarded by many in the hate movement as an explicit terrorism manual.
The Turner Diaries and the Oklahoma City Bombings
Praise from convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, a dedicated promoter of Pierce's novel, is a prime example of the extremist movement's regard for the book. The early pages of The Diaries contain a scenario strikingly similar to that of the April 1995 bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal Building: Members of the "Organization" raid a farm-supply warehouse to obtain bags of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, mix the fertilizer with heating oil and load the bags on to a stolen delivery truck. At 9:15 the next morning, "Organization" members detonate the bomb in front of the FBI Building in Washington, DC, causing massive loss of life. They revel in the destruction.
Days before he bombed the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, McVeigh mailed a letter to his sister warning that "something big is going to happen," followed by a second envelope with clippings from The Turner Diaries. When she learned of her brother's arrest in connection with the bombing, McVeigh's sister burned the clippings.
What Timothy McVeigh Read
FBI agents also found a copy of a passage from The Turner Diaries in a search of the car McVeigh drove on the day of the Oklahoma City blast. McVeigh had highlighted several sentences from The Diaries passage, which reflects on the terrorist bombing of the U.S. Capitol and an airliner bound for Tel Aviv. It reads:
The real value of our attacks today lies in the psychological impact, not in the immediate casualties. For one thing, our efforts against the System gained immeasurably in credibility. More important, though, is what we taught the politicians and the bureaucrats. They learned today that not one of them is beyond our reach. They can huddle behind barbed wire and tanks in the city, or they can hide behind the concrete walls and alarm systems of their country estates, but we can still find them and kill them.
During the bombing trial, several of McVeigh's friends testified that he had sent them copies of William Pierce's novel with notes encouraging them to read it. Testimony also showed that McVeigh sold The Diaries and Hunter at weekend gun shows. One of his army buddies told the court that McVeigh, a former U.S. army sergeant, read The Turner Diaries for days during training. Kyle Kraus, one of the friends to whom McVeigh mailed the novel, stated in court that when he learned of the Oklahoma City bombing, he was immediately reminded of scenes from The Turner Diaries. Kraus grabbed his copy of the book and brought it to a local FBI office.
Terry Nichols, who was convicted of conspiracy in the Oklahoma City bombing, may have also been a fan of William Pierce's writings. Federal agents found a copy of Pierce's book, Hunter, in a search of Nichols' Michigan home. They saw few other books in the house."
As you can see, these people are very dangerous and their activities should not be tolerated!
What can you do about Racists in your Community? The best thing you can do is reach out to others who have concerns about racist activity.
Organized Resistance towards White Power Groups
Groups which stand against racism abound in the U.S. There are many groups which oppose racism, including the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP, the New Black Panthers, Anti-racist Action, and many, many more.
Anti-racist action is a grass roots organization which handles the problem of racism by protesting events held by neo-Nazis and the KKK. Members of anti-racist action also expose Nazis to the community at large so these groups can't operate in secrecy.
Should you Confront a Racist Alone?
Probably not. Many bigots join the military just to get the skills they want for their race war fantasies. Many hoard weapons and ammunition. Confronting them alone could be dangerous. Many racists hold the idea that one day the government will come and take away people's guns. If this idea sounds familiar, it is likely you have heard conservative political candidates claim Obama will one day take away peoples guns. This idea started with right wing race hate groups.
Nazis also hoard guns and build bunkers because they are psychopaths who believe that one day the people will rise up and destroy all the blacks, and Jewish people. Just like little kids awaiting Santa Claus on Christmas, these morons wait with baited breath for the world to get dumb as they are.
What can you do?
Get educated about Nazis and what they do
Don't hire or rent to exposed Nazis
Learn what your local Nazis look like so you don't get suprised when one of them does something stupid like spraying a Sikh temple with bullets.
SUPPORT local anti-racist groups
Now, knowing some of you hail from Chi-town like me. There is an Anti-Racist Action group on the South Side in Chi-town:
South Side Chicago Anti-Racist Action
South Side Chicago ARA
Now, here's an example of what South Side Anti-Racist has done to handle racism in Chi-town:
Peace out! Power to the People!
