US Army Battling Racists Within Its Ranks

MSNBC is reporting on a new strategy for white supremacist: "Join the Army". Can you imagine one of the nation's four to five fighting forces infiltrated, or should I say "infested" with thousands of low level 'supremacist'.

MSNBC's report is actual reporting for Reuters' Daniel Trotta. Trotta's piece has a indicates origin of Fayetteville, North Carolina. There seems to be lots of reporting from North Carolina that has tag lines of 'white supremacy' and Neo-Nazi. Robert Sobel of the Examiner.com recently reported  Ku Klux Klan efforts to influence bookings of African-American performers with professional wrestling.

US Army battling racists within its ranks

Leaders instructed to look out for tattoos of lightning bolts, skulls, swastikas, other extremist symbols.
Excerpt...
......White supremacists, neo-Nazis and skinhead groups encourage followers to enlist in the Army and Marine Corps to acquire the skills to overthrow what some call the ZOG — the Zionist Occupation Government. Get in, get trained and get out to brace for the coming race war.
......The U.S. Defense Department as well has stepped up efforts to purge violent racists from its ranks, earning praise from organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has tracked and exposed hate groups since the 1970s.

......The Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), another civil rights monitor, have helped train officers on how to spot extremists, although Mark Pitcavage, director of investigative research at the ADL, says the military lacks comprehensive training for recruiters and commanders. He called the military's reaction when alerted to white supremacists "patchy."  
"We've discovered a great range of response, from getting a phone call the next day saying, 'He's already out,' to not doing anything at all," Pitcavage said.

The Trotta piece is fascinating to put it bluntly. In fact, it is my 'must read piece' of the young week.
