Could this be why we are hearing so many horror stories lately? And what does it say about Bush's plans to have the MILITARY take over in case of a pandemic?

Hate Groups Are Infiltrating the Military, Group Asserts
By JOHN KIFNER
Published: July 7, 2006

A decade after the Pentagon declared a zero-tolerance policy for racist hate groups, recruiting shortfalls caused by the war in Iraq have allowed "large numbers of neo-Nazis and skinhead extremists" to infiltrate the military, according to a watchdog organization.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks racist and right-wing militia groups, estimated that the numbers could run into the thousands, citing interviews with Defense Department investigators and reports and postings on racist Web sites and magazines.

"We've got Aryan Nations graffiti in Baghdad," the group quoted a Defense Department investigator as saying in a report to be posted today on its Web site, www.splcenter.org. "That's a problem."

A Defense Department spokeswoman said officials there could not comment on the report because they had not yet seen it.

The center called on Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld to appoint a task force to study the problem, declare a new zero tolerance policy and strictly enforce it.

The report said that neo-Nazi groups like the National Alliance, whose founder, William Pierce, wrote "The Turner Diaries," the novel that was the inspiration and blueprint for Timothy J. McVeigh's bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building, sought to enroll followers in the Army to get training for a race war.

The groups are being abetted, the report said, by pressure on recruiters, particularly for the Army, to meet quotas that are more difficult to reach because of the growing unpopularity of the war in Iraq.

The report quotes Scott Barfield, a Defense Department investigator, saying, "Recruiters are knowingly allowing neo-Nazis and white supremacists to join the armed forces, and commanders don't remove them from the military even after we positively identify them as extremists or gang members."

Mr. Barfield said Army recruiters struggled last year to meet goals. "They don't want to make a big deal again about neo-Nazis in the military," he said, "because then parents who are already worried about their kids signing up and dying in Iraq are going to be even more reluctant about their kids enlisting if they feel they'll be exposed to gangs and white supremacists."

The 1996 crackdown on extremists came after revelations that Mr. McVeigh had espoused far-right ideas when he was in the Army and recruited two fellow soldiers to aid his bomb plot. Those revelations were followed by a furor that developed when three white paratroopers were convicted of the random slaying of a black couple in order to win tattoos and 19 others were discharged for participating in neo-Nazi activities.

The defense secretary at the time, William Perry, said the rules were meant to leave no room for racist and extremist activities within the military. But the report said Mr. Barfield, who is based at Fort Lewis, Wash., had said that he had provided evidence on 320 extremists there in the past year, but that only two had been discharged. He also said there was an online network of neo-Nazis.

"They're communicating with each other about weapons, about recruiting, about keeping their identities secret, about organizing within the military," he said. "Several of these individuals have since been deployed to combat missions in Iraq."

The report cited accounts by neo-Nazis of their infiltration of the military, including a discussion on the white supremacist Web site Stormfront. "There are others among you in the forces," one participant wrote. "You are never alone."

An article in the National Alliance magazine Resistance urged skinheads to join the Army and insist on being assigned to light infantry units.

The Southern Poverty Law Center identified the author as Steven Barry, who it said was a former Special Forces officer who was the alliance's "military unit coordinator."

"Light infantry is your branch of choice because the coming race war and the ethnic cleansing to follow will be very much an infantryman's war," he wrote. "It will be house-to-house, neighborhood-by-neighborhood until your town or city is cleared and the alien races are driven into the countryside where they can be hunted down and 'cleansed.' "

He concluded: "As a professional soldier, my goal is to fill the ranks of the United States Army with skinheads. As street brawlers, you will be useless in the coming race war. As trained infantrymen, you will join the ranks of the Aryan warrior brotherhood."

Been like this for years. They want to face it now? Same organization who made us hate all japs, commies, gooks, Vietnamese, ruskies, Nazis, Koreans, and now A-rabs. I did not indend on offending anyone. This is what they were called in their respected times. I hear the word arab so often now. Whenever I correct someone about that word Im automatically a "Anti-war, anti-Bush liberal'. I guess the "IMPEACH BUSH" shirt gives it away. I want a shirt that says "Annoy a republican. Quit your job and go on welfare". If anyone finds one tell me.

Yes, we have been an equal opportunity hater nation for as long as I can remember (and way before that!)

But that "IMPEACH BUSH" shirt just might tip people off on the liberal business.

You can make your own designs for shirts on a computer I am told. I don't know how, but I am sure people here would know. Pretty savvy group, don't you think?

I dont understand....and this is hypothetical.....why someone couldnt be republican and anti Bush. I dont get it. If you dont like one thing in the repuke world, you are a liberal. Its funny. With that shirt I get people who say "what are ya, a liberal". I always ask them "why do I have to be liberal?" "Why cant I be a republican who doesnt like Bush?" I do it just to get their response. I let them know that I am a liberal. But I do actually get a lot of compliments on the shirt from repukes.

Like I have said before, I still wear my Kerry/Edwards pin and that gets lots of comments. Have thought about getting a pin that reads 'IMPEACH'.

The people here are SO pro-Bush! We live in a land of thugs.

Knowing what has happened to people who express anything but love for Bush, you might end up in jail. Some cops can be pretty nasty now-a-days. Ask people who went to New York for the R convention.
