In the UK, they are going after all manner of “extremism,” even the absurd and completely marginal neo-Nazis. The Sunday Herald reports:
Scotland’s new terror tsar has warned that the threat from right-wing extremism is as damaging to community relations as the menace posed by al-Qaeda.
In an exclusive interview on his first day as the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland’s counter terrorism co-ordinator, Allan Burnett said forces should not ignore the latent neo-Nazi presence across the UK.
Fife’s assistant chief constable said the public is at risk because racism is being used to unite people into violent causes. He said this also undermines police work to reassure the Muslim community following the attack on Glasgow Airport last year.
Burnett said: “We’ve had a number of right-wing issues recently in the UK that again have raised their head in Scotland.
“There have been serious cases down south that have been really well dealt with by the police down there, but we shouldn’t be complacent about it.
“There’s no point promoting positive race relations if, in claiming to be everyone’s co-ordinator of counter terrorism, you take your eye off the right-wing.”
Burnett’s comments are a reminder of the threats facing communities, following the arrest of an alleged neo-Nazi in Dundee last November.
Sure, Nazi hooligans threatening communities, but what you never hear about is the distinct possibility these neo-Nazis are a creation of British intelligence and internal security. Combat 18, or C18, according to a Wikipedia entry (since expunged), citing Searchlight, Red Action, and “other commentators on both the left and right, including journalist Larry O’Hara,” was “created by the British internal security service MI5 to discredit the BNP [British National Party] while acting as a honey trap, or sting operation, designed to attract the most violent neo-Nazis in the UK into a single organization, where they could be monitored more easily. Some commentators also suggest that it was used by MI5 to infiltrate Loyalist paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland” (see the Combat 18 citation here before it was changed on the Wikipedia website).
In the United States, the situation is similar. “In 1979, government operatives played key roles in the massacre of communist labor organizers during a multi-racial anti-Klan march in Greensboro, North Carolina. Heading the KKK/Nazi death squad was Ed Dawson, a long-time paid FBI/police informer in the Klan. Leading the local American Nazi Party branch into Dawson’s ‘United Racist Front’ was U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms undercover agent Bemard Butkovich,” writes Brian Glick in his book, War at Home. “Though their controlling agencies were fully warned of the Front’s murderous plans, they did nothing to protect the demonstrators. Instead, the police gave Dawson a copy of the march route and withdrew as his caravan moved in for the kill. Dawson’s sharpshooters carefully picked off key cadre of the Communist Workers Party (CWP), including the president and president-elect of two Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union locals, an organizer at a third local mill, and a leader of AFSCME’s organizing drive at a nearby medical center. In the aftermath, the FBI attempted to cover up the government’s role and to put the blame on the CWP.”
As recently as 2006, the FBI was running neo-Nazi groups in America, as the Orlando Sentinel reported on February 15, 2007. David Gletty, an FBI informant paid $20,000 over a two year period, was “behind a neo-Nazi march through the streets of Parramore that stirred up anxiety in Orlando’s black community and fears of racial unrest that triggered a major police mobilization.”
Britain’s MI5 and the FBI in the U.S. are notorious for creating terrorist groups and then — in standard problem-reaction-solution fashion — offering up draconian solutions to the problem they covertly (or not so covertly) create.
In response to the “neo-Nazi problem” in England, Allan Burnett, as the counter terrorism co-ordinator of the Association of Chief Police Officers, suggests communities become “self-policing,” that is to say members of the community should become snoops and stool pigeons.
He urged communities to be “self-policing” and said the police need to further develop their “preventative strategy”, which includes the idea of parents tipping off the police if they suspect their children or other relatives and friends are being “brainwashed” into terrorism via the internet or other activities.
“It’s like educating parents about drugs and what signs to look for. We don’t get it right if parents don’t know what their kids are getting up to behind their backs.
“We must get ourselves into a position where the parents are concerned, even at the lowest levels; that we have something set up where they feel free to come to the authorities.
“We need surveillance — not on communities, but on individuals who are actively involved or supporting terrorist organizations. We have some excellent relations with the community, but they can always be better and deeper.”
In other words, it is not simply the Muslim community that should be surveilled, but the white community as well. All of this is simply part of an ongoing plan to convert a former democratic country into a “self-policing” authoritarian police state.
In the United States, where so-called neo-Nazis are not as active, the same technique is used, as we are told blond hair, blue eye al-Qaeda terrorists, indistinguishable from little Johnny next door, are a threat to national security.
