White Supremacists Distribute Fliers Asking Soldiers to Fight in Coming Race War
Law enforcement officials are investigating an apparent recruitment attempt by white supremacist groups after soldiers at Fort Carson in Colorado found fliers and CDs trying to recruit soldiers to fight for a “white nation” in the apparently imminent race war.
One of the soldiers posted photos of the recruitment fliers on Reddit, saying he “found a dozen sealed plastic bags blowing around Fort Carson with this flyer and CD inside.”
The flier says “Ever wonder if you are fighting for the right side?” and urges soldiers to “secure the existence of our people and a future for White children.”
Brian Levin, the director of the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism, told The Army Times that military members are highly sought after by white supremacist groups because of their skills.
“It’s like, do the Yankees want a great pitcher,” Levin said. “Neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups are happy to have people commit acts of violence in the name of their ideology without being a card carrying member of their group – lone wolves.”
Of course, the far right is already saying this is a liberal conspiracy to “besmirch the military.”
Former Republican Congressman Allen West said “Why do I question this? Because I know the tactics of the liberal progressive Left and besmirching the military to prove their long-held thesis is very important. Let the Army do its due diligence and not have this become a political issue to discredit our military – a leftist tactic. Seems to me radical Islamic jihadists have done a fairly good job of infiltrating our military – why doesn’t the Left confront that issue?”
Okay, one, because they haven’t and that issue only exists in your head. Two, looks like Allen West is off his meds again. Three, the white power movement probably wouldn’t be as apologetic of Allen West as he is of them.
