Despite a lack of evidence, the establishment media claims white supremacists, skinheads and neo-Nazis are joining to U.S. military and preparing for a “racial holy war.”
Reuters reports that racist groups are actively encouraging members to enlist and receive military training to overthrow the “Zionist Occupation Government,” a term invented by the Order, a racist organization created by the National Alliance, a group controlled by the FBI.
The latest effort by the Pentagon to ferret out violent racists follows the shooting of Sikh worshippers in Wisconsin, allegedly by Wade Michael Page, who served in the psychological operations unit at Fort Bragg.
The Southern Poverty Law Center characterized Page as a white supremacist who fronted a “hate rock band.” The SPLC also connected the former soldier to the National Alliance. The leader of that group, former Green Beret David Kellerman, admitted he worked for the FBI.
The effort by the Pentagon – enthusiastically praised and encouraged by the SPLC and the ADL – follows a script produced in 2009 by the Department of Homeland Security that characterizes military veterans as a domestic terror threat.
“Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists,” the DHS report on “rightwing extremism” leaked in 2009 claimed. The report said the government is “concerned that right-wing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize veterans in order to boost their violent capacities.”
An earlier report commissioned by the Justice Department “found half of all right-wing extremists in the United States had military experience,” according to Reuters.
A colonel interviewed by Reuters, however, said he did not consider the prospect of white supremacists in the military a serious problem. “In my 26 years in the Army, I’ve never seen it,” the former company commander said.
CNN report claims white supremacists are a problem in the military.
As exhaustively reported by Infowars.com, the FBI has controlled violent white supremacist groups since the 1960s. Under COINTELPRO, the government “subsidized, armed, directed and protected the Ku Klux Klan and other right-wing groups,” Brian Glick writes. Racist groups were used to create a strategy of tension by attacking groups on the so-called left, including anti-war, Chicano and Puerto Rican activists and nationalists.
More recently, the specter of armed and violent racists has been used to exaggerate the prospect of domestic terrorism and expand the national security state, the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and myriad other federal agencies.
