Neo-Nazis: America’s Inner War With Itself and Its History, Part 2

       Two visible support and recruitment groups in this country––the U. S. military and white power music groups––support Hammerskin Nation and other neo-Nazis groups that produced the Wisconsin Sikh Killer, Wade Michael Page.

And––just as in Germany and the rest of Europe––a third support is the hidden army of politicians, bureaucrats and wealthy neo-Nazis who block coordinated investigation of their above-ground ‘white power’ killers.

Several bloggers point to the U.S. military as both a recruitment arm and training center for white supremacists organizations, which often send young recruits into the military for weapon and fighter training.  In ‘White Supremacy and the Wisconsin Shooting Spree,’ David Leonard and Richard King point out “. . . white supremacists have focused recruitment efforts within the military.”

The two journalists highlight an ex-marine and former Special Forces officer T. J. Leyden, who encouraged new white supremacists to go into the Army and ask for assignment in light infantry units:  “Light infantry is your branch of choice because the coming race war . . . will be very much an infantryman’s war. . . house-to-house, neighborhood-by-neighborhood until . . .  alien races are driven into the countryside where they can be hunted down and ‘cleansed.’”

In ‘The Sound of Hate,’ Robert Futrell and Pete Simi discuss racist music as a prized recruitment tool for Hammerskin Nation:  “ . . . they thrive in . . .hidden spaces of hate . . . where they gather to support . . .their cause. . .the most important hidden spaces is the white power music scene.  Neo-Nazis are particularly adept at incorporating music into just about every aspect of the movement.”

Just as in Germany’s lax police coverage of its neo-Nazis, American law enforcement had every reason to track down and apprehend Hammerskin Nation members, but failed to do so.  As Nick R. Martin from TPM Mucker explains:

“In 1991, three members were involved in the shooting of a black man they came upon in Arlington, Texas. Two of them pleaded guilty in the killing and the third was convicted by a jury two years later.  In 1999, six young Hammerskins members in Southern California allegedly beat a black man and slashed him with a straight razor.  In 2005, another member was sentenced to 19 years in prison for a Dallas nightclub beating that left his victim partially paralyzed.”

Several other journalists and scholars have noted the strange way that politicians treated Daryl Johnson, the Homeland Security Analyst who tried to warn the nation about growing dangers from neo-Nazis in the United States.  That is where the third arm of support from politicians and bureaucrats comes in.

Remember that in the WW2 record of axis and allies history world war several nations switched sides between Nazis and non-Nazis.  Let us cry out to God that in WW3, our nation will not be like one of those:  “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5: 16b).”
