Right-Wing Extremists a danger? Really?

What was that a few months back, when the Justice Department caught hell for warning about right wing wackos? What was that? Oh yeah, looks like they were correct in their reasoning, obviously, as anyone with half a brain would realize. I wonder who was pissed about that assessment? Could it be the right-wing wackos who seem to always be ranting at the top of their lungs? Quite a few people owe Janet Napolitano an apology.

Alleged gunman charged in museum shooting


Security Guard Dies After DC Museum Shooting

WASHINGTON (AP) -- An 88-year-old white supremacist has been charged with murder for killing the security guard who had opened the door to let him into the U.S. Holocaust Memorial and Museum, officials said Thursday...

In his car, officers found a notebook with a handwritten note saying, "You want my weapons - this is how you'll get them. The Holocaust is a lie. Obama was created by Jews," according to a court affidavit...
This guy, James von Brunn, who murdered the guard, he was also ranting online about how Obama wasn't born here, following the usual right-wing diatribe bullshit. You know, just like what Faux News was saying. Same shit. I know where he gets his news from.

By the way, Stephen T. Johns and the other guards who stopped this ignorant, poor excuse for a human being, are heroes. If it hadn't been for them, countless other innocent people would have died.

Oh, and James von Brunn isn't alone. Just look at the white supremacist forums if you dare. I came across one by accident in a Google search of his name. They're lauding him as a hero. I don't know how such sorry excuses for life can sleep at night. They obviously have no empathy and no conscience. That's the mark of a serial killer, the mark of a despot. People who would kill other human beings and not feel any remorse whatsoever, I don't even have any words for that sorta crap.


  1. Its been common knowledge for quite some time, that Gangs of all ethnicities are sending members to enlist in the armed forces so that they can receive training in weapons handling, maintenance, leadership, hand to hand, and possibly even tactics, strategy and Urban fighting techniques.

    That was like ohhh, about 6 or 7 years ago when that emerged within the news. It was brought to my attention by a Friend who works in Law Enforcement on such matters too.

    So worrying about the Radicalization of embittered vets is only part of the problem. Considering that we treat our vets like shit doesnt help. But this other, imagine someone like that influencing command decisions and junior personnel before they get out and return to their gang. Imagine how guns and other equipment might be lifted and sent back home.

    White Power Gangs were very much in the thick of this. To the Point that military had to make a bunch of new rules regarding the symbolism of tattoos because there was an issue with that as well.

    The Fux Nus idiots and their drooling dittoheads dont know what the fuck they are talking about when they demanded apologies from politicians who raised this issue AT LAST from the hill. This is one of those Clear and Present Danger issues that could really flame out our Home Grown Terror Issues we have now. This issue is much bigger, Older and Worse than is being reported. This is just the tip of the dirty Iceberg.

  2. I realize that this has been going on for a while now. At least a couple of decades. I always said the biggest threat to our country was never from without, but from within. I realized this just listening to right-wing Christians opine about wanting a theocracy. Most of them are sympathetic to, if not in outright support of, the (usually white supremacist) militias that have cropped up over the past few decades across the country, because they perceive our democratically elected government as a threat to their religion. And it is, as it should be. Separation of church and state is important. Without it, we have theocracy.

    Who keeps these people in check? What happens when the tolerant fail to stand up to the intolerant. One need merely look at history to see. The holocaust is a prime example of that. No one stood up to the Nazis when they were on the rise. Everyone was cowed by them, or thought it wasn't really their problem. And we all know how that turned out, don't we?

    These people are the same as the Taliban, but they're not a world away. They're your neighbors, your co-workers, maybe even your friends. They live next door to you. They teach your child at school. They check you out at the grocery store, or at Wal-Mart. They have given themselves to these religions and ideologies and they no longer think for themselves, because to do so would be to defy their god or their church's elders or both.

    And they think that it's okay to burn books, that morality is something that should be legislated, and that people who don't follow their version of morality deserve to be punished. Their mindset is Medieval, yet they're living in the 21st century. It's absolutely absurd and it defies logic.
