Dozens of US Military personnel spotted on Nazi networking site

(9:00AM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

From the tech site BoingBoing

“The Southern Poverty Law Center, a hate-group watchdog organization based in Alabama, will present documentation to Congress on Friday about the presence of active duty military personnel on the white supremacist social networking site newsaxon.org. On that website, SLPC spotted 40 users who claim to be serving in the military, an apparent violation of Pentagon regulations prohibiting racist extremism in the ranks….”

   

Mark Potok, editor of the Intelligence Report, a magazine produced at the law center, [said] “The Pentagon really has shrugged this off and refused to look at this in any serious way.”

   On the newsaxon.org website, which Potok termed “a racist version of Facebook run by the National Socialist Movement,” many participants list their branch of service, base location and hometown on colorful pages festooned with Nazi art and Confederate battle flags. Some say they have served or will soon be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Several include pictures of themselves in camouflage combat uniforms.

    Looks like we need a corollary to Godwin’s Law for actual nazis.

  1. Alternet stories on this subject from July 8, 2006, August 29, 2008, December 15, 2008.

    The real assholes do their tour of duty, get out, and become mercenary contractors working for the likes of Blackwater/Xe. While in the military they have to go through the motions of operating under the parameters of the UCMJ, but they are screened, recruited, singled out and tested for their alternate loyalty to a fascist agenda by higher ups who remain on the inside.

    Once in these mercenary organizations they operate completely beyond any law or nation’s Constitution. These creeps directly serve the interests of the fascist shadow government fronted by Bush and Cheney.

    This crap has been going on since I was in 20 years ago.

  2. in a fucking heartbeat.

    No fucking way is the US military training Nazi’s how to kill, bullshit on that.

    Kick em out, dishonorable discharge
