IMPORTANT: Most Americans have no idea how deeply embedded white-supremacist groups are in the military – My Comments

[Here is a Liberal whining article about the (fake) "threat" of White Supremacy in the military. If these people weren't the scum they were, these Liberals would realise that the most patriotic people are probably the white supremacists. I find it very creepy that they're hunting for white right wingers in the US military. But I suspect that senior officers have been hounded out for decades. I think Clinton, but definitely Obama, got rid of a LOT of military officers. I was reading a fascinating history recently where Generals in the USA in the late 1950s and early 1960s were pushing the John Birch society and were recruiting in the military. They believed there was an "enemy within" the USA that was communism! From all my research and observations over the years as well as personal experience, I tell you, that the military is the best place to find such whites. The military also has different values and I think ACROSS THE WESTERN WORLD, you will find that the military is more honourable than the politicians. You have a clash of the Aryan martial spirit versus the Jewish spirit which drives politicians. I urge whites to always befriend military/police/intelligence types and try to wake them up. Always be friendly and polite to the military. You'll see that the military, secret service, etc … all of these organisations have got some kind of martial spirit. And it is generally in favour of whites or at the very least patriotic. It is different to the douche-bag political scum. I'm glad to hear white supremacists are floating around … and you'll see it is that way in every country. It is a topic I will be discussing in an important video about Rhodesia that I will launch in the next week or so, which I've already completed. Don't miss the video about why Britain did NOT invade Rhodesia. In there, you're going to find some strange stuff. Jan]

White nationalist groups, who are some of the country’s most serious terror threats, are finding new members and support in the US military.

Those links date to the 1990s, but most Americans remain unaware of the connections these groups have to the military.

White nationalist groups, who make up some of the most serious terror threats in the country, find new members and support in the US military. These groups believe that white people are under attack in America.

In their effort to create an all-white country where nonwhites do not have civil rights protections, these groups often instigate violent confrontations that target racial and religious minorities. Since 2018, white supremacists have conducted more lethal attacks in the United States than any other domestic extremist movement.

The Proud Boys group, for example, whom President Donald Trump addressed in the first presidential debate of 2020, includes veterans and active duty service members. The group’s members, who are required to engage in physical violence before joining, celebrated Trump’s statement to "stand back and stand by," considering his call an endorsement of their extremist ideology.

While many Americans were appalled at the president’s statement, our research shows that most Americans remain unaware of the connections these groups have to the military.

The links between the US military and white nationalists date back to the 1990s, with many believers seeing military service as an opportunity to hone their fighting skills and recruit others.

Our research has found that most Americans don’t know much about the level of white nationalism in the military — though when they find out, they’re worried about it.

Researchers do not have reliable data on how many active duty or veteran service members belong to white nationalist groups. But current military members are increasingly aware of the influence of far-right groups in the ranks.

In the most recent poll by Military Times, an independent media organization covering the military, about one-fifth of service members have reported seeing signs of white nationalism or racist ideology in the military community. Those include the casual use of racial slurs and anti-Semitic language, and even explosives deliberately arranged in the shape of a swastika.

More than one-third of service members surveyed in 2018 said white nationalism is a significant threat to the country — which is more than were seriously concerned about threats from Syria, Afghanistan or immigration.

White nationalists with military experience have committed acts of violence, usually after leaving the service — like the 1994 Oklahoma City bombing and the 2012 mass shooting at a Wisconsin Sikh temple.

But active duty personnel have also been involved in white nationalist activity. In July 2018, a white nationalist was dismissed from the Marine Corps for his involvement in hate groups, including attending the 2017 "Unite the Right" protest in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In February 2019, a Coast Guard officer stationed at the agency’s headquarters was arrested and accused of stockpiling weapons as part of a plan to start a race war.

In April 2019, a Huffington Post investigation revealed that at least 11 members of various military branches were under investigation for involvement in a white nationalist group.

In September 2019, an Army soldier who had expressed support for right-wing extremism was arrested after sharing bomb-making instructions with undercover agents. That same month, an Air Force master sergeant who had been involved with a white supremacist group was demoted but allowed to continue serving.

In June 2020, an Army private was charged with terrorism offenses after he leaked sensitive information about his unit to two white supremacist groups, including one that promotes rape and murder as part of its quest for a race war.

Congressional concern

Lawmakers have been paying attention to the problem. In 2019, the House of Representatives approved a requirement to screen potential military enlistees for signs of white nationalism, as part of the Pentagon’s annual budget allocation. But the Senate removed that provision before sending the bill to the White House for the president’s signature.

Military and academic experts agree that violent ideologies in the ranks make it harder for soldiers to form the bonds of trust with one another that they rely on in combat.

If Congress did ban white nationalists from serving in the military, members of white nationalist groups would have a harder time receiving military training. They would also be cut off from an important recruitment network.
