Rage on the Right

By Mark Potok

The anti-government Hutaree group, which described itself as a 'Christian warrior' group, allegedly planned to kill a police officer, then attack others during the officer's funeral, thereby provoking a war against the government which it hoped would eventually transform itself into a RACE WAR along the lines described in the Turner Diaries. NOTE: The Turner Diaries is a RACIST, ANTI-SEMITIC novel written in 1978 by William Luther Pierce (former leader of the white Nationalist organization National Alliance) under the pseudonym "Andrew Macdonald." The Turner Diaries depicts a violent revolution in the United States which leads to the overthrow of the United States federal government, nuclear war, and, ultimately, to the extermination of all Jews and non-whites, leaving an all-white U.S. population of fifty million.

THIS IS THE AUDIO VERSION OF THE TURNER DIARIES
which supposedly takes place in the "future" - 1991

THE SEDUCTION OF THIS KIND OF HATE PROPAGANDA IS SPREADING LIKE WILDFIRE TODAY IN AMERICA'S RIGHT-WING MATRIX - AND ALTHOUGH MOST WHITE CHRISTIANS WOULD DENY IT, IT IS INFECTING THE WHITE CHRISTIAN POPULATION LIKE A VIRULENT CANCER. AFTER LISTENING TO #1, #2 AND #3 (SEE ABOVE) ASK YOURSELF HONESTLY, ARE YOU COMPLETELY FREE FROM THE SEDUCTION OF THIS KIND OF PROPAGANDA? ARE YOU REALLY? IT'S PRECISELY BECAUSE THIS KIND OF PROPAGANDA IS SO SEDUCTIVE - AT LEAST TO WHITE, EUROPEAN CHRISTIANS - THAT THE LORD COMMANDS HIS PEOPLE TO GET OUT OF THE U.S. BEFORE THEY ARE SEDUCED BY IT. NATUALLY ENOUGH, THIS WARNING ALSO APPLIES TO BLACKS, JEWS AND OTHER MINORITIES BECAUSE THEY ARE THE TARGETS OF THIS PROPAGANDA. [Please see our article, "Come Out of Her."]

As we have indicated in previous articles, the Bible speaks of ethnic (i.e., RACIAL) conflict as one of the most pointed and distressing signs of those events leading up to the "Beginning of Sorrows" (i.e., the first half of the Tribulation and the appearance of the Antichrist as a messianic savior). [cf. Matthew 24:7 "For nation (Gk: ethnos) shall rise against nation (Gk: ethnos)"]

However, one must distinguish between what the Bible means as "nation" and what we as Americans mean as "nation." When the Bible (and for that matter, most Europeans) speaks of "nation" it is speaking of a TRIBAL or RACIAL group; when Americans speak of "nation" they mean all those who regardless of ethnicity, culture or race live within a specific geographic area, for example, the borders of the United States.

Paul Hockenos, in his book Free to Hate: the Rise of the Right in Post-Communist Eastern Europe, describes the difference between these two concepts of "nation;" he writes:

"In the lively academic discourse that has grown around nationalism, scholars distinguish two general concepts of the nation: (1) the civic or democratic, and (2) the ethnic. The civic definition, with its roots in the French Revolution, uses "nation" to refer to a body of citizens whose collective sovereignty constitutes a state. In other words, it is "nation" as the term is commonly applied in ... (the United States by multiculturalists and liberals). In German, the term is Rechtsstaat ...

"The ethnic nation, on the other hand, is a folkish community, bound ... by descent, language, customs ... (religion), and history [what the Germans call a Volksstaat or Volksgemeinschaft - meaning ethnic nation (or community) - a nation (community) based on ethnicity and "group rights" over and against "individual rights") ...] What defines membership in this kind of nation is ethnicity [i.e., RACE] ...

"The ethnic nation is at odds with the premises of ... (the civic) nation ... and presents a ... recipe for conflict in the combustible multinational (world of today) ...

"Where extreme ... (ethnicists) take the logic of the ethnic nation to its ... conclusion, as in the former Yugoslavia, the result is the forging of an all-inclusive, homogeneous ethnic nation-state. The price (of course) ... is war, complete with forcible mass expulsions, concentration camps, and genocide. In other cases, such as the Baltics, the Caucasus, Slovakia, Romania, or Bulgaria, where significant national minorities live, the majorities have tightened the screws on their co-inhabitants through cultural repression and restrictive citizenship laws. Under fire, the minorities react with nationalisms of their own, which often take the form of separatist ambitions. In response, the dominant nationalities crack down all the harder on the "disloyal" minorities. The heightened tension can bring in the minorities' mother states, usually all too willing to come to the rescue of their national kin, in regions they often consider their own anyway. This action-reaction spiral of nationalism plays itself out wherever ethnic nationalism is the order of the day." [Please see our articles on the breakup of the former Yugoslavia, "Lies and Damned Lies: Not Discerning the Truth," "Follow-Up Report on: More Lies and Deceptions Concerning Kosovo" and "Racial Rage and the Coming Chaos."]

This is precisely the kind of conflict the Bible has reference to in Matthew 24:7 "For nation (ethnos) shall rise against nation (ethnos)" - what Hockenos calls the "action-reaction spiral" of one ethnic (RACIAL) group "raging" against another; it is exactly this kind of pathology which produces fascism; and it's out of the fascist nexus that Antichrist will emerge; and it's not just in the Caucasus, the former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, etc. that this "action-reaction spiral" has taken root. The fact of the matter is, it's happening right here in our own backyard AND THERE IS ELITE MONEY THAT IS FUELING THIS RAGE please see our article, "Co-Opting the Anger of the People: The Tea Party Movement and the Corporate Takeover of the People's Legitimate Rage."]

Rage on the Right

By Mark Potok

The radical right caught fire last year, as broad-based populist anger at political, demographic and economic changes in America ignited an explosion of new extremist groups and activism across the nation.

Hate groups reached record levels ... Furious anti-immigrant vigilante groups soared by nearly 80%, adding some 136 new groups during 2009. And, most remarkably of all, so-called "Patriot" groups - militias and other organizations that see the federal government as part of a plot to impose "one-world government" on liberty-loving Americans - came roaring back after years out of the limelight. [Please see our articles, "Civilian Militias and the Mythology of the Religious Right" and "A Growing Rage in America's Heartland."]

The anger seething across the American political landscape - over racial changes in the population, soaring public debt and the terrible economy, the bailouts of bankers and other elites, and an array of initiatives by the ... liberal Obama Administration that are seen as "socialist" or even "fascist" - goes beyond the radical right ...

"WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT RIGHT-WING POPULIST REBELLIONS IN UNITED STATES HISTORY," Chip Berlet, a veteran analyst of the American radical right, wrote earlier this year. "We see around us a series of overlapping social and political movements populated by people [who are] angry, resentful, and full of anxiety. They are raging against the machinery of the federal bureaucracy and liberal government programs and policies including health care, reform of immigration and labor laws, abortion, and gay marriage." [Please see our article, "The Christian Right: Creating a New and Ominous Strategy against the Left."]

Sixty-one percent of Americans believe the country is in decline, according to a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Just a quarter think the government can be trusted. And the anti-tax tea party movement is viewed in much more positive terms than either the Democratic or Republican parties, the poll found.

THE SIGNS OF GROWING RADICALIZATION ARE EVERYWHERE. Armed men have come to Obama speeches bearing signs suggesting that the "tree of liberty" needs to be "watered" with "the blood of tyrants." The Conservative Political Action Conference held this February was co-sponsored by groups like the John Birch Society, which believes President Eisenhower was a Communist agent, and Oath Keepers, a Patriot outfit formed last year that suggests, in thinly veiled language, that the government has secret plans to declare martial law and intern patriotic Americans in concentration camps. [Please see our recent article which has information on the Oath Keepers, "Co-Opting the Anger of the People."]

Politicians pandering to the antigovernment right in 37 states have introduced "Tenth Amendment Resolutions," based on the constitutional provision keeping all powers not explicitly given to the federal government with the states. And, at the "A Well Regulated Militia" website, a recent discussion of how to build "clandestine safe houses" to stay clear of the federal government included a conversation about how mass murderers like Timothy McVeigh and Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph were supposedly betrayed at such houses.

The number of hate groups in America has been going up for years, rising 54% between 2000 and 2008 and driven largely by an angry backlash against non-white immigration and, starting in the last year of that period, the economic meltdown and the climb to power of an African American president. [Please see our article, "Racial Rage and the Coming Chaos" and "Racism and Right-Wing Christianity."]

According to the latest annual count by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), these groups rose again slightly in 2009 - from 926 in 2008 to 932 last year - despite the demise of a key neo-Nazi group. The American National Socialist Workers Party, which had 35 chapters in 28 states, imploded shortly after the October 2008 arrest of founder Bill White for making threats against his enemies.

At the same time, the number of what the SPLC designates as "nativist extremist" groups - organizations that go beyond mere advocacy of restrictive immigration policy to actually confront or harass suspected immigrants - jumped from 173 groups in 2008 to 309 last year. Virtually all of these vigilante groups have appeared since the spring of 2005.

But the most dramatic story by far has been with the antigovernment Patriots. The militias and the larger Patriot movement first came to Americans' attention in the mid-1990s, when they appeared as an angry reaction to what was seen as a tyrannical government bent on crushing all dissent. Sparked most dramatically by the death of 76 Branch Davidians during a 1993 law enforcement siege in Waco, Texas, those who joined the militias also railed against the Democratic Clinton Administration and initiatives like gun control and environmental regulation. [Please see our article, "Conspiracy Theories."]

Although the Patriot movement included people formerly associated with racially based hate groups, it was above all animated by a view of the federal government as the primary enemy, along with a fondness for antigovernment conspiracy theories. By early this decade, the groups had largely disappeared from public view.

But last year, as noted in the SPLC's August report, "The Second Wave: Return of the Militias," a dramatic resurgence in the Patriot movement and its paramilitary wing, the militias, began. Now, the latest SPLC count finds that an astonishing 363 new Patriot groups appeared in 2009, with the totals going from 149 groups (including 42 militias) to 512 (127 of them militias) - a 244% jump.

That is cause for grave concern. Individuals associated with the Patriot movement during its 1990s heyday produced an enormous amount of violence, most dramatically the Oklahoma City bombing that left 168 people dead.

Already there are signs of similar violence emanating from the radical right. Since the installation of Barack Obama, right-wing extremists have murdered six law enforcement officers. Racist skinheads and others have been arrested in alleged plots to assassinate the nation's first black president. One man from Brockton, Mass. - who told police he had learned on white supremacist websites that a genocide was under way against whites - is charged with murdering two black people and planning to kill as many Jews as possible on the day after Obama's inauguration. Most recently, a rash of individuals with antigovernment, survivalist or racist views have been arrested in a series of bomb cases. [Again, please see our article, "Racial Rage and the Coming Chaos" and "Racism and Right-Wing Christianity."]

As the movement has exploded, so has the reach of its ideas, aided and abetted by commentators and politicians in the ostensible mainstream. While in the 1990s, the movement got good reviews from a few lawmakers and talk-radio hosts, some of its central ideas today are being plugged by people with far larger audiences like FOX News' Glenn Beck and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn). Beck, for instance, re-popularized a key Patriot conspiracy theory - the charge that FEMA is secretly running concentration camps - before finally "debunking" it. [Again, please see our recent article, "Co-Opting the Anger of the People."]

Last year also experienced levels of cross-pollination between different sectors of the radical right not seen in years. Nativist activists increasingly adopted the ideas of the Patriots; racist rants against Obama and others coursed through the Patriot movement; and conspiracy theories involving the government appeared in all kinds of right-wing venues. A good example is the upcoming Second Amendment March in Washington, D.C. The website promoting the march is topped by a picture of a colonial militiaman, and key supporters include Larry Pratt, a long-time militia enthusiast with connections to white supremacists, and Richard Mack, a conspiracy-mongering former sheriff associated with the Patriot group Oath Keepers.

What may be most noteworthy about the march, however, is its date - April 19. That is the date of the first shots fired at Lexington in the Revolutionary War. And it is also the anniversary of the fiery end of the government siege in Waco and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
