The Michigan/Florida white supremacy exchange

We’ve apparently got a racist exchange program going on with Florida. We’ve got Quran-burning pastor Terry Jones here in Michigan this week, on loan from the sunshine state, and, according to reports coming out of Florida, while Jones is here, they’ve got some of our neo-Nazis from Detroit coordinating activities in Sanford – the town where Trayvon Martin was murdered earlier this spring. I think there’s something kind of poetic about that. Disgusting. But poetic… The following comes from the Miami New Times.

Neo-Nazis are currently conducting heavily armed patrols in and around Sanford, Florida and are “prepared” for violence in the case of a race riot. The patrols are to protect “white citizens in the area who are concerned for their safety” in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting last month, says Commander Jeff Schoep of the National Socialist Movement. “We are not advocating any type of violence or attacks on anybody, but we are prepared for it,” he says. “We are not the type of white people who are going to be walked all over.”

Because nothing diffuses racial tension like gun-toting racial separatists patrolling an already on-edge community.

Schoep, whose neo-Nazi group is based in Detroit, tells Riptide the patrols are a response to white residents’ fears of a race riot.

A group called the New Black Panther Party recently offered $10,000 for a citizens’ arrest of George Zimmerman, Martin’s shooter. Schoep said the bounty is a sign that “the possibility of further racial violence… is brimming over like a powder keg ready to explode into the streets.”

The patrols are comprised of between 10 and 20 locals and “volunteers” from across the state, including some from Miami, he added. He couldn’t go into specifics on what kind of firepower, exactly, the patrols had with them…

While one hopes that this isn’t really happening, a cursory examination of white power websites would seem to indicate that it is. As I’ve yet to see photos of these armed patrols, though, I’m hoping this is just a case of the National Socialist Movement looking for some press that might help boost their recruitment numbers across an increasing fearful nation in search of scapegoats. Lest anyone think it’s just white racists taking advantage of this poor young man’s death, though, I think it’s pretty clear that the New Black Panther Party is doing the same thing. Regardless of their motivation, I think it’s safe to say that this doesn’t bode well for the future of our country.

    So Detroit does have an non-automotive export. It’s good to see that we’re diversifying.

    These are the kind of people that need to be forced into rehabilitation or mental institutions.

    According to Fox News, it’s a “Civil rights group patrolling Sanford”.

    From Think Progress:

    A Fox Orlando affiliate decribed Neo-Nazis as “a civil rights group” on a television broadcast and online. The group of Neo-Nazis, known as the National Socialist Movement, has been conducting armed patrols of the streets of Sanford, Florida, the town where Trayvon Marting was shot dead.

    The Fox Orlando affiliate, WOFL, aired a shockingly uncritical report of the groups activities. The Fox reporter introduced the group by saying, “There’s another civil rights group in town.” She also conducts an interview with the group’s leader, Jeff Schoep, without challenging any of his claims about the nature and mission of the group.

    I’ll have to go back and check, but I’m pretty sure that FOX didn’t refer to the New Black Panther Party as a “civil rights group”.

    I was going to say that Florida was the worst state in the union, and then I remembered Mississippi.

    Hah, HAH! He’s got you there! If Zimmerman’s a Democrat, you clearly couldn’t have a leg to stand on when criticizing the “stand your ground” law! You’re going to have to erase all of your posts about how terrible it was that he killed Martin. Because, we know that that you Democrats would never speak out against one of your own. Mark K knows you so well. He can read you like a book.

    Speaking of racist militias keeping us safe, did you read about the murder of two illegal aliens in Arizona yesterday?

    Two illegal immigrants were shot and killed last night near Eloy after being “ambushed” by an unknown number of people in camouflage getup, police say.

    According to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, the call came into the Eloy Police Department around 10:30 p.m. yesterday about shots being fired at an “illegal alien smuggling load.”

    The sheriff’s department, along with Eloy police, Coolidge police, and Border Patrol agents, found one person dead in the bed of the pickup truck, and another person was found dead in a nearby wash.

    Deputy Dawn Barkman tells New Times there may have been as many as 30 people in the truck when it was fired upon, but police only found a handful of people hiding in some nearby brush as the rest in the truck had booked it.

    The witness’ description of the shooters: A bunch of people with rifles and camouflage clothing.

    I grew up in Mississippi and have been to Florida on many occasions. I can say that Florida is far worse. Mississippi, though poor and politically backward has great food, music and a populace which bravely voted down the stupid personhood amendment recently.

    Alabama on the other hand…

The Middle-East is swarming, and we as American’s have to be watcher’s for wht is going to go down now and the year’s to come! My right is also to be in a Group such as yours; and intend to do so! I am doing some investigating now to find the right group with the same intention’s in life, as mine! i live in a suburb of Detriot and know how violence looks like and is! I have been car-jacked, kidnapped, and what did the Police do-NO THING! Like the saying goes: If you want something done right, do it yourself! Then you know that it will get done and done right. This is why I look to YOU!
