Vice: Neo-Nazis Ask Military to Join Their Cause, Call For Assassinations

https://www.vice.com/en/article/88adm4/neo-nazis-ask-military-to-join-their-cause-call-for-assassinations

The military is already investigating the role service members played in the Capitol insurrection. Now, neo-Nazis are trying to recruit them.

While watching news of the violent insurrection on TV last week, retired General Vincent K. Brooks, a four-star general and former head of U.S. forces in Korea, was struck by the apparent number of veterans he witnessed storm the Capitol in real time. “All of those things were evident in that crowd,” he told VICE News, noting the military badges and symbols he saw attached to the jackets, shirts and hats of the Trump supporters, especially when coupled with military grade tactical equipment. “It was disconcerting.”

“So many of these people that we saw were apparently former military who have taken a very extreme view of the security of the United States and the political dynamics that are impacting it,” he said. “Far too many of them were veterans. And that was so disappointing.”

As the FBI warns of armed groups threatening state capitals across the country and the National Guard is deploying to Washington D.C. in preparation for the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, accelerationist neo-Nazis who supported last week’s President Donald Trump-incited insurrection are calling for targeted killings and advocating for members of the military—charged with protecting one of the most fundamental events in American democracy—to turn to their side.

1. Scary shit. Who do you trust?

These posters hope that active-duty service members deployed to protect the inauguration and the various state capitals in the coming days switch sides. The same Telegram account—which VICE News will not name to avoid amplification—is trying to appeal to the National Guard, imploring members to join the cause.

Another Telegram account, with well over 2,000 subscribers, urged people to murder the families of Congresspeople and to target state capitols with localized, armed militias. “Do not meet up with ‘internet friends’ for this,” said a post viewed by users over 7,000 times. “Gather your local trusted militia and do what you must to save this country and our people from their hellish claws that clamp down on the souls of us all.”

2. We need to

STAND STRONG!

And recognize that our Democratic congresspeople are BRAVE HEROES!

Silver lining: I have learned so much about so many of our DEMOCRATIC congress members, that I otherwise would never have known. I have seen them over and over, each and every one, speaking passionately of their patriotism and pure intent. Each and every one has shown themselves to be patriotic heroes.

I remember a time when there were scalawags among Dem reps. I am not seeing that now.

SO PROUD OF OUR DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS MEMBERS!!!

And with the Squad, I see great improvements!!!!!
