FAYETTEVILLE, North Carolina (Reuters) - They call it "rahowa" - short for racial holy war - and they are preparing for it by joining the ranks of the world's fiercest fighting machine, the U.S. military. White supremacists, neo-Nazis and skinhead groups encourage followers to enlist in the Army and Marine Corps to acquire the skills to overthrow what some call the ZOG - the Zionist Occupation Government. Get in, get trained and get out to brace for the coming race war. If this scenario seems like fantasy or bluster, civil rights organizations take it as deadly serious, especially given recent events. Former U.S. Army soldier Wade Page opened fire with a 9mm handgun at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin on August 5, murdering six people and critically wounding three before killing himself during a shootout with police.

No comment on Nidal Hassan.?
As far as I’m concerned, the skinhead/neo-Nazi types should be put against a wall and shot. But it’s only the white racists the media cares about. They never talk about racist black and Hispanic gang members who join to get the training.
No comment on the Crips/Bloods/La Raza doing the same thing, either.
No comment on Nidal Hassan.?
My thought exactly. It seems that the real war is on white welfare paying folks. Not the muslims, black bigots and illegals in the military.
Nope, or the Pink Mafia.
The Feds are not going to single out Muzzies because the Feds looooove them!
We had a Nazi in the cycle ahead of us at Basic Combat Training, Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, back in the Summer of 1978. They kept him busy painting murals in the orderly/arms room while he waited for his bad conduct discharge. We’d see him every time we went to get our M-16s. Not a new thing.
Hassan has not even gone to trial for “workplace violence” yet!
Racists don’t do well in the military.
Consider the source.
Six, two, and even that the US Army shows up on the SPLC’s list of “Hate Groups” within weeks.
As long as they go after racists in all their diversity, that’s good. But if they are going Mao on politically incorrect white guys in the military...that would not surprise me under this regime.
Exactly. One team one fight.
This is an extremely odd meme, but it leeds off almost every news story about this guy.
He was in the Army for six years, and was kicked out 15 years ago.
So what is the rationale for making his line of work 15 years ago the Homeric epithet used to describe him?
Why is "former soldier" the default description, as if somehow it is the most important fact about him?
If he had just exited the service it might make some sense, but 15 years ago?
You know that is exactly where they are going.
As usual in post-modern America, it’s only the White Guys who are getting the flak, which immediately categorizes this article as Bull Sh*t.
This. There are many gangs that are utilizing military basic training as THEIR basic training, often times they’ll go and get trained and then find some way to get chaptered out and get back to the gang lifestyle, newly educated on combat tactics. There’s more than a few who deliberately fail on drug tests, making it easy to get in and get out.
The headline says US Army fights “racists” and the body of the story mentions ONLY white racists as if black racists dont exist.
A classic tactic of the Corrupt Liberal Media
Liberalism has killed journalism.
LOL, I wonder if those were the same murals on the walls when I was there....much later, in 2000.
Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 3rd BCT Brigade. But I don’t know if he painted any others. Seem to remember something like the Magnificent Hulk rapelling from a helicopter or some such.
I think they changed a lot of the units around, I was with the 82nd Chemical Battalion which came over from Ft McClellan a few years before I got to Wood. I remember how we were all excited to go on leave after Basic, we got out into Waynesville and discovered that the whole town basically congregated at the Wal-Mart. Needless to say it was a pretty big letdown. :)
I was held over a few days after BCT and was tasked to clean the entire drill sergeant’s school along with a couple of other privates. We were given a weekend pass for our good work and went to the Lake of the Ozarks for a few days. Never even saw Waynesville, but they probably didn’t even have a Wal-Mart back then. AIT at Fort Huachuca was much more fun. And don’t get me started on Korea.
Reds in the military’s higher ranks have the power to seriously harm white men operating under leftist diversity racist and sexist ideology.
Get out if you are not supporting a communist Muslim anti-constitutional agenda, soldiers! The left (of both parties) did this slaughter of Americans in for their love of communism in Viet Nam! Get out before they slaughter you to the god of white male hate!
Ronald R. derailed the foreign and domestic enemies of America. He was named a politically incorrect “extremist”. Much to the charign of daddy Bush and rino company. Only then, did the atheist hate wall come down. Only then, did the two in one leftist party come down and America rise out of liberal poverty and opppression!
White men need to get out! The military, under Marxist ideology will harm them for being a patriot!
There is no guarentee things will get better under Mr. P.C. Myth!
My brother, who is much older than I, explained to me when I got old enough to understand, what treason happened in Viet Nam. He was a soldier at that time. He told me the politicans snuggled up to the enemy until the enemy was of more value than American life.
It’s happening again! Now!
Yep. All my family who are in the military have either already gotten out or are in the process. I have family who have been in over twenty years, not because they were geting rich from it but because they love this country and wanted to serve her, even under such leaders as Carter. They’re out. The younger ones are totally disillusioned by what’s happening and they are getting out.
“As far as Im concerned, the skinhead/neo-Nazi types should be put against a wall and shot.”
Sure, because we wouldn’t want those Nazis getting out of hand and forming death squads again to line people up and shoot them.
I think we both know why the media leads with it. They want to reinforce a notion that veterans are more likely to crack up and become dangerously violent. Then, they can blame Republicans for starting wars that make veterans crazy and violent, and they can make the public fear veterans, who tend to be more conservative, and natural obstacles to many lib goals.
The younger ones are totally disillusioned by whats happening and they are getting out.
But they should get out if they can! If they must stay in, pay attention to their own instincts about the people around them, rather than buying into and living and moving by the preachings of deadly, treasonous P.C. leaders.
They don’t have to announce it; just move by and arrange what makes sense to them. If American soldiers did this, they would not be dead having dinner with the treasonous worshiped enemy in this war.
That is what my brother did. He came home alive. He knew his commanders were in it for nothing he believed in. He was not fighting for the glory of communists. He hated communists. He was at war with communists. If the military was not at war with the communists, he was not at war with the military. He protected his comrades and survived the betrayal. That’s it.
Don’t be silly. He was the wrong race and religion (or arguably the right race and religion). Only white racists and extremists are of any concern.
He was kicked out during the Clinton Reign of Error. "Former" disgraced soldier, perhaps.
Meanwhile, Nadil Hasan was shielded from rebuke because of his politically correct status even when he made death threats.
And today's Obamamilitary has said that it would be MORE TRAGIC than having dozens of unarmed Americans shot on base IF somehow a person's loyalty to the United States over an Islamic Supremacist theocracy were questioned.
The nazi types and skinheads are a boogeyman, a corpse that the left props up and pretends it’s breathing to keep the lie alive that whites are oppressing blacks everyday and everywhere. Check the crime statistics sometime to see who is murdering and raping who, and when you do, keep in mind that whites are app 70% of the population and blacks are app 12% of the population. If you haven’t seen them before, they will shock you. The only interracial crime epidemic in this country is that of black-on-white, but let’s keep hunting up those mythical nazis out there killing and raping blacks. Do you know that white-on-black rape is statistically non-existent?
Our FIRST MUSLIM President is not going to allow any bad things to be said about HIS religion of peace. Get in line or else they will kill you.
Obama is not worried about Americans figuring it out. He thinks Americans are idiots. So far, he is right.
Veterans have already been designated as “domestic terrorists”. Next step is to tie the neo-Nazis to the Tea Party (the facts are irrelevant, the serious nature of the charge is all that matters).
Of course there is the infiltration of the Army by Crips, Bloods, La Raza, Zetas, the Pink Mafia, and I would dare say the Occutards. But you hardly hear about that.
Boot Camp is the Kindergarten/Nursery School of Military training. If any gangbanger thinks that they have enough training in Basic to be a great soldier, they're wrong.
“The nazi types and skinheads are a boogeyman, a corpse that the left props up and pretends its breathing to keep the lie alive that whites are oppressing blacks everyday and everywhere.”
I think they’ve bred enough cynicism that this nonsense doesn’t work much anymore. Blacks may believe it because it is better/easier to blame The Man (rather than themselves) for their shortcomings, but most whites (and ALL foreigners) know better. I live next to the Newark Welfare Reservation in NJ, and white guilt (if it ever existed) died when the whites in the suburbs were forced out of Newark 50 years ago. Some of those original refugees, and many of their children/grandchildren, still occupy those suburbs, and look at Newark as if it were Mordor. Nobody goes there unless to work, and they leave before sundown; if they see any of “them” on your suburban street, they immediately call the police - they are up to no good 99% of the time.
Journalism, as you intend the term, has not existed in living memory. Newsmen have always wanted influence, otherwise whats the point? Given that fact and the concomitant fact that newsmen want to attract attention to each edition of their reporting, you have a synopsis of the self-interest of the journalist. Not that anyone should have need of a deep analysis to be able to say that journalists are like everyone else in the fact that everyone has interests which prevent them from being inherently objective or even of being capable of knowing that they are objective or not.
But the obvious fact of common interest among journalists explains why, if journalists were free from competition, and thus free to express their common interest, they would naturally tend to superficially entertaining stories, of tendentious second-guessing criticism of those whose leadership in the economy produces things the public needs and also the validation (jobs) people need, and to self-promoting flattery of those who translate the journalists criticism into government regulation and taxes.
And journalism was homogenized - incorporated into an essential group with an obvious utilitarian purpose which also had the effect of destroying internal ideological competition - starting in the middle of the Nineteenth Century. The Associated Press did it. The AP was founded as a monopolistic entity, indeed was found to be in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act in 1945 (if a very credible-appearing web site is to be believed), but even that is not the point. Because the internal logic of any wire services, even in the presence of real competition among services, is to promote the perception of objectivity of all journalists. When the newspapers editor wants to sell his readership a story off a newswire, he needs the readership to assume that the story represents reality. And yet the editor doesnt even know the guy who wrote the story, much less employ him. So what is the editor to do, but to assure his readership that reporters can be relied upon? Even if there were major wire service competition for the AP, competing with the AP on the basis that the AP reporters werent as objective as those in your network wouldnt be a good idea. It would put you at daggers point with all other wire services, who all need the credulity of the public, and every reporter not in your network would be out to undermine you.
So it is the wire service as such which produces the objective reporting. Objective belongs in scare quotes because, as we have seen, no journalist actually even knows that he is really objective. But the crucial fact is that you cannot even attempt to be objective without first being open about your own interests - and yet you cannot be open about what your own interests are when you are claiming that you do not have any interest. Which is what you are doing when you join an organization which claims that all of its members are objective. Arguing from the unwarranted assumption of your own superiority is sophistry.
Before the advent of the wire services, newsmen were flamboyant and notoriously didnt agree about anything. Now newsmen unctuously promote the conceit that all are objective, which only means that they are all on the same page. All businessmen themselves, but all attacking any successful businessman who is not in their business. And all flattering socialist politicians that they are liberal and progressive. All cheap shot artists, unified by the fact that they are afraid to attack each other.
