When al Qaeda attacked the World Trade Center on September 11th and the U.S. government said that they were going to start cracking down on "terrorist groups" in the US I was hoping that meant that they were going to start cracking down on violent white supremacist groups too.
The KKK are a terrorist organization aren’t they?
Well if they aren’t, then what is the definition of terrorist? I thought a terrorist was someone who uses terror to further his political, social or economic agenda?
Bombing churches in Alabama in order to demoralize and terrorize blacks trying to fight to have their civil rights recognized by the United States wasn’t a terrorist act?
Well some of my readers vehemently disagreed with me.
They preferred a much more limited definition of terrorist.
For whatever reason, they preferred a definition that was specifically tailored to Muslim, Arab speaking men and woman, blowing up things to forward Muslim, pan-Arab agendas.
”There weren't any KKK piloting those planes that flew into the World Trade Center on 9-11!”
My response was, “I’m sorry I didn’t know that was the birth of terrorism.”
Do a Google search on the Greenwood Avenue area of North Tulsa, Oklahoma during the early 1900’s. It was known as Black Wall Street because of the tremendously successful black business strip that existed all in once spot because of strict segregation laws back then. It was the envy of the nation until racist whites used their own private planes to drop kerosene and dynamite on the district completely obliterating 600 businesses, 21 churches, 21 restaurants, 30 grocery stores, 2 movie theaters, a hospital, a bank, a post office, several schools, law offices, and even a bus system.
3,000 people there died as well.
Why did they do it? To remove and dissuade any further economic development of blacks in North Tulsa, Oklahoma whose businesses were out competing the white businesses.
Not a single person was ever arrested, tried or convicted for this crime.
You could have made probable cause arrests just going on which planes were used in the bombings and who had pilot licenses and were capable of flying the planes.
But legally, the district attorney treated the whole situation like it never happened.
And who was behind it?
Well since there was never a formal investigation looking into it, I guess we will never know who was really behind it.
However, if you ask me where the stench of bullshit was coming from I would say the local KKK working with city officials, which were probably the same people, as well as other local sympathizers who no doubt would’ve also disagreed with my definition of terrorist because it lacked mentioning the towel head component.
Well now the leader of the Aryan Nation, August Kreis, who I am saying is the leader of a terrorist group, is not only praising al Qeada for their efforts on September 11th but offering his services as well as anyone associated with his group to their cause.
'You say they're terrorists, I say they're freedom fighters.' ... 'I don't believe that they were the ones that attacked us,' [August Kreis] said. 'And even if they did, even if you say they did, I don't care!'
He claims that they both share the same common enemies, Jews and the American government.
When asked if he had a message for Osama Bin Laden his response was
"The message is, the cells are out here and they are already in place," Kreis said. "They might not be cells of Islamic people, but they are here and they are ready to fight."
I don’t know why people have such a difficult time looking past the illusions of difference.
People think that the Aryan Nation or the KKK aren’t terrorist but al Qeada are.
They don’t think Louis Farrakhan isn’t racist but David Duke is.
They’re all the same people.
I mean August Kreis is so serious about this that he is even willing to water down the white supremacist position on sand niggers to do make the deal happen.
Don’t laugh. That is significant.
See, most of you are probably saying that since the Aryan Nation doesn’t like anyone that isn’t pasty white, an alliance like this would be highly unlikely, but Kreis wants to change that.
"That's old-school racism, white supremacy, this is something new," he said. "We have to be realists and realize what didn't work [previously] isn't going to work in the future."
Stop feeding this a double standard. I am sick of this.
When a college professor blames the attacks of 9-11 on American foreign policy in the region, conservatives are all up in arms calling for his head on a platter.
When there were more evangelical Christians that you could count blaming the attacks of 9-11 on God punishing America for allowing feminist, homosexual, atheist, liberal agendas to creep into our society, where was all of the fuss from the conservatives then?
So what is the message? If you blame our foreign policy in the region for 9-11 you're bad, but if you say that God did it to us for being liberal feminist homosexual atheists then you have a point?
”The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say, "You helped this happen." - that was Rev. Jerry Falwell, blaming civil libertarians, feminists, homosexuals, and abortion rights supporters for the terrorist attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2001.
What I am trying to get you to see is that regardless of whether or not you are blaming U.S. foreign policy or God being angry with us for September 11th, both of these assholes are saying that we deserved it.
If you say that Churchill is wrong for saying we deserved it get down on Falwell even if he is on his death bed.
They have a right to their opinion, but if you support one, regardless of which one you support, you are agreeing with the other, at least on the issue that we deserved what happened on September 11th and the 3,000 people that died that day deserved what they got.
The Aryan Nation, KKK, World Church of the Creator are just as much domestic terrorists and have been historically, as any al Qeada sleeper cell laying in wait today.
And now that the Aryan Nation has offered their thugs over to al Qeada, who the U.S. government had been telling us for months was desperately looking for non-Arabs to recruit into their ranks so that they can start slipping past security checks trained to look for Muslim, middle-eastern looking men and women, I guess this is when I say I told you so.
I told you so.
