Nazis in United States armed forces in Iraq


Anti nazi league

You want to join the British armed forces, though you’re overweight? You used to be not welcome; but now you are.

You want to join the US armed forces in Iraq, even though you’re middle aged? You’re welcome (see also here).

You want to join the US armed forces in Iraq, even though you have a criminal record? You’re welcome.

You want to join the US armed forces in Iraq, even though you are on drugs? You’re welcome.

You want to join the US armed forces in Iraq, even though you are gay? You’re …. UNwelcome, as the Bush administration is not that broad-minded.

From the Southern Poverty Law Center in the USA:

Under pressure to meet wartime manpower goals, the U.S. military has relaxed standards designed to weed out racist extremists.

Large numbers of potentially violent neo-Nazis, skinheads and other white supremacists are now learning the art of warfare in the armed forces.

Department of Defense investigators estimate thousands of soldiers in the Army alone are involved in extremist or gang activity.

“We’ve got Aryan Nations graffiti in Baghdad,” said one investigator.

Not that surprising, as the Belgian correspondent of the Bush administration’s favourite weekly, The Weekly Standard, Paul Beliën, is in the neo nazi Vlaams Belang party.

  2. *Hate Groups Are Infiltrating the Military, Group Asserts*

    Yeah, let’s go all out and be complete Nazis instead of the partial
    Nazis we have become lately under Bush.

    It’s time to let the REAL Nazis and hate mongers represent us abroad,
    especially in those countries where people live who are special targets
    of neo-Nazi hate .

    … recruiting shortfalls caused by the war in Iraq have
    allowed “large numbers of neo-Nazis and skinhead extremists”
    to infiltrate the military …. [their] numbers could run into
    the thousands…

    The ONLY way the U.S. Military has been able to meet its target of new
    recruits is by LOWERING its standards and accepting people with MORE
    psychological problems. lower IQs, more hate in their hearts, and by
    raising the age limit.

    The Army is on track to meet its target of 80,000 new
    soldiers this year. Lowered standards have helped. The Army
    has eased restrictions on high school drop-outs, raised the
    maximum age from 35 to 42, and admitted large numbers of
    neo-Nazis and skinhead extremists. >>

    [one neo-Nazi leader says] “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.’ ”

    That’s the new Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld army.

    All those new “detention centers” the Bushites are paying Halliburton’s
    KBR to build will not go unused. The Americans these skinheads don’t
    like will be sent to those “detention centers” for “discipline,” slave
    labor and probably extermination.

    *Hate Groups Are Infiltrating the Military, Group Asserts*

    by JOHN KIFNER
    The New York Times
    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, http://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.

    [NOTE FROM ME: Yes, “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.”
