Racial Extremists Are Infiltrating the Military for the Chance to 'Kill a Brown'
Racial Extremists Are Infiltrating the Military for the Chance to 'Kill a Brown'

By David Holthouse, Intelligence Report. Posted December 15, 2008.

New evidence suggests that white supremacists are taking advantage of lowered recruiting standards to enter the armed services.


The racist skinhead logged on with exciting news: He'd just enlisted in the United States Army.

"Sieg Heil, I will do us proud," he wrote. It was a June 3 post to AryanWear Forum 14, a neo-Nazi online forum to which "Sobibor's SS," who identified himself as a skinhead living in Plantersville, Ala., had belonged since early 2004. (Sobibor was a Nazi death camp in Poland during World War II).

About a month after he announced his enlistment, Sobibor's SS bragged in another post to Forum 14 that he'd specifically requested and been assigned to MOS, or Military Occupational Specialty, 98D.

MOS98D soldiers are in high demand right now. That's because they're specially trained in disarming Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), the infamous roadside bombs that are killing and maiming so many U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Presumably, part of learning how to disarm an IED is learning how one is made.

"I have my own reasons for wanting this training but in fear of the government tracing me and me loosing {sic} my clearance I can't share them here," Sobibor's SS informed his fellow neo-Nazis.

One of his earlier posts indicated his reasons serve a darker purpose than defending America: "Once all the Jews are gone the world will start fixing itself." Timothy McVeigh

Many analysts believe that Timothy McVeigh, mastermind of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that killed 168 people, was radicalized during his experience as a soldier in the first Gulf War.

2. This has been reported for about four years now
and the problem continues to increase. Not only are the neonazis, the aryan brotherhood, the klan, and other extremist groups growing in numbers, the wackogelical cults are also using the military as a breeding ground to spread their hateful messages of endless war and division.

Not one damned thing has been done about it. Mainstream America sleeps through the arming of that which would happily kill them. These problems are to be ignored at the peril of peace and decency.

3. No news here
Having served in the Army for six years I ran into these creeps all the time. There is vicious racism in the Army and it starts with the officers.

6. Sobibor's SS needs to read his enlistment contract a little more carefully
First, his MOS is 89D (Explosive Ordnance Disposal Specialist), not 98D (direction finder operator, an MOS which no longer exists--it's been folded into another MOS).

Second, the Army reserves the right to terminate your enlistment during training if they figure out you like building bombs too much, which they will about two hours after this moran starts making them.

7. I hate it when a subject is so morally repugnant
that my fingers go mute on the keyboard. I've heard that this has been happening and it's just so wrong on so many levels that I can't articulate a coherent message strong enough to indicate my despair. The lack of education, the stupidity, the ignorance, the short sightedness....you can only hope that Darwin is somehow at work and that these jackasses won't live long enough to reproduce and spread this to their offspring.
