Terrorists of the Right Color

Can you imagine the panic if a prosecutor, then the District Attorney and his wife in one state, and in the meantime the head of prisons in another state, were killed by Muslim supremacists? The simultaneous pants-shitting of every state legislator south of the Mason-Dixon line would be loud and prolonged, especially if one of the suspects killed a pizza delivery driver and then died in a shootout after which bomb-making materials were found in his car. Fox would be 24/7 with conspiracy theories and panic,  dozens of “enhanced” Patriot Act cavity search laws would be proposed In Congress, and Bieber knows what would be happening to Muslims in states where their mere presence already instills panic in the locals.

Luckily, the suspects in these crimes are members of the Aryan Brotherhood, not the Muslim Brotherhood, so we can just let the police do their job and hunt them down without being forced to board airplanes wrapped only in a Snuggy.

    Hasse was described as a “well-liked person” who was not married and almost always carried a gun for his own protection.

    Well, so much for that theory.

    They all “seem like ‘nice’ guys,” until they shoot up some group of strangers, or are found to have a refrigerator full of pickled hooker’s heads.

    And if these weren’t white guys doing these killings, but “blah” and brown people instead, especially Muslims, Depends would rule the NYSE and Dow.

    Happy Easter, to all of the believers out there.
    Have a nice Sunday, to the non-believers out there.

    SSDD. This nation is rife with terrorists, many of them court-enabled, wandering around in the open, daily. The ones who walk through residential areas with machine guns over their shoulders, just “exercising their second-amendment rights.” The people open-carrying at grocery stores, restaurants, and coffeehouses. The guys standing around, armed to the teeth, just “observing” a group of mothers peacefully rallying in support of gun control laws. The schmucks on social and other media calling for the murder of abortion doctors. When do we start calling these people what they are?

    I know, I know. The answer to that is, “When their skin darkens.”

    Nearly all of the mass shootings in this country in recent years — not just Newtown, Aurora, Fort Hood, Tucson and Columbine — have been committed by white men and boys.

    When white men try to divert attention from gun control by talking about mental health issues, many people buy into the idea that the United States has a national mental health problem, or flawed systems with which to address those problems, and they think that is what produces mass shootings.

    But women and girls with mental health issues are not picking up semiautomatic weapons and shooting schoolchildren. Immigrants with mental health issues are not committing mass shootings in malls and movie theaters. Latinos with mental health issues are not continually killing groups of strangers.

    This much is true. We do have a mental health problem. Solving our mental health problem will do little if anything to address our problem with mass shootings. Mass shootings are best addressed through gun laws and addressing the culture that worships violence.

    Found this comment from the story about the killing of the prosecutor. “This is most likely a hit from the drug cartels. They relish the daytime hits in plain view of as many witnesses, lends to the credence of their fearless brutality. The best thing to do is round up every latino, put them in labor camps, since they are here to work that we won’t do according to the guilty white liberal, and watch gun violence be reduced by at least a third. The jewish media is attempting to cover for the drug cartels, after all, who runs the banks? Jewish bankers are counting on the drug runners, and will facilitate the killing of a DA, then run interference attempting to portray it as a white supremacist hit.”

    What worries a lot more than the occurrence of tragic school shootings and the like is how many of the ardent gun enthusiasts are of this mindset. Ignorant, hateful and armed to the teeth.

    just curious, mr. mix; your post reads as if you’ve come across info asserting the perp in the dallas DA killings was also a white supremacist. where did that come from?

    i hasten to add here i’m in no way defending white supremacy; would not be at all surprised. just have not seen that datum anywhere as yet.

    and a small addition here: would be an entirely different picture too if these dallas DA guys were themselves black, or muslim, or latino. had that been the case, i doubt it would have hit the news at all.

    I always wondered why Eric Rudolph didn’t get the needle, and why he wasn’t waterboarded for information on who had been harboring, feeding and clothing him during his years on the run.

    Then I remembered he was white, and that his co-conspiratorial fugitive harborers were salt-of-the-earth white Christian conservative activists (some possibly prominent) who love ‘Murka and the troops.

    By exceeding 3.6 degrees F, we will have caused “dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system”. If we allow warming to reach, say, 7.2 degrees F (4 degrees C) of warming, we will likely have created a chaotic world, i.e. a world with an unstable environment (The World Bank Report, 2012).

    I can’t count the times Texans, southerners, and gun nuts have sneered at me for choosing not to own guns to protect me and my family. They insisted that by arming myself, I will be protected from thugs and criminals. The Magic Gun. And yet I keep reading about gun owners being shot.

    The irony is that these shootings will no doubt encourage more gun sales – for protection.

    Well, the thing is, is that the Aryan Nations/Brotherhood has been busy the last couple of months.

    On the night of July 7 [2012], two women huddled in the back bedroom of the mobile home at 6108 Big Wood Court in rural Tarrant County. From another room, they could hear the cries of 34-year-old Earnest Ray Lackey, as three men hog-tied and beat him for hours until, at some point, the screams stopped and Lackey’s lifeless body was taken from the house.[…]In subsequent interviews with the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Department first reported by CBS 11 the women gave a motive for the killing: Lackey falsely claimed membership in the Aryan Brotherhood. The other men, all of whom had recently served time in prison and actually were members of the white supremacist group, sought to teach him a lesson.

    Fun. Then they hit this other guy:

    Dodson, a 44-year-old father of three and the vice president of Dallas’ Buckley Oil Company, wasn’t home at the time, but several other people were. One had a gun, and Hidic was struck in the ensuing shootout with her captors. It still not clear whether Hidic’s and Dodson’s deaths are connected. What’s become clearer, thanks to arrest affidavits obtained by the Star-Telegram are the circumstances surrounding Dodson’s death. According to the affidavits, on October 28 [2012] Dodson went to the home of Joseph Dodson, 31-year-old Aryan Brotherhood member (aka “Short Sight”) on parole for dealing meth. […] Joseph Dodson sat on Dodson’s back and strangled him with an extension cord, Walden told police. After taking his cell phone and credit cards, they covered the body with a blanket and carried it to Robert Dodson’s SUV, which Joseph Dodson drove to the Johnson County oil well where it was later found.

    The Aryan Brotherhood seems to be big on the hogtie and kill thing. Then there was the hit on the Kaufman County (basically an exurb county of Dallas) Asst. DA:

    Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLellan didn’t mince words when he addressed reporters about the murder this morning of Mark Hasse, one of his prosecutors.[…]Another reporter asked more pointedly about Hasse’s involvement in the investigation of Aryan Brotherhood members Ben Christian Dillon, aka “Tuff,” and James Marshall Meldrum, aka “Dirty,” who pleaded guilty today on federal racketeering charges. Hours after the shooting, the Department of Justice issued a press release thanking the Kaufman County DA’s office, along with about two dozen other agencies, for help on the case.

    Now they’ve got and hit McClelland and his wife. To follow on to the hit on the guy in Colorado and that whole escapade.

    There’s a lot of ‘we don’t want to say the Aryan Brotherhood is involved in this’ going on. I don’t know why. But I expect that proves Mistermix’s point.

    For unrelated white supremacist amusement: Fifty-Six Year Old Community College Student and Republican Precinct Chair Wants a White Student Union at Tarrant County College. The upshot – he got busted for a DUI which caused him to lose his job, house and car. Homeless, but a vet, he managed to get a place to live with a homeless halfway house, which directed him to TCCD. Apparently he got upset about Not White people getting awards and stuff.

    You would think he would bless his lucky stars he’s getting on so well, considering the legions of miserable people living on the streets who don’t get any support at all, but the bigotry is strong with that one.

    Yeah, what I remember is that when they showed the polls for how people felt about building that mosque, there was less and less hostility to it the closer you got to Ground Zero (culminating in actually having a majority of people in Lower Manhattan who supported the idea).

    Not going to say it was a Southern thing, but the outrage had its own “Ground Zero” among professionally outraged red state suburbanites, not the people who actually lived there. There’s a reason they had to bus in people to protest.
