The Minutemen and neo-Nazis

FireDogLake crossposts from David Neiwart of Orcinus who documents in great detail the links between the Minutemen and the white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups.

Neither is it a big surprise that the leading anti-immigrant enterprise, the Minutemen, is constantly being infiltrated by neo-Nazis, or that so many of their spinoff groups are riddled throughout with extremists and racists, some going so far as to ally themselves with neo-Nazis.

Also from Orcinus, check the Nazi flag at a Minutemen demo in Laguna Beach.

What’s going on, of course, is that the Minutemen provide an ideal opportunity for white racists to “mainstream” their agenda, using the relatively benign “average citizens” that Lou Dobbs exclusively observes in their ranks as just so much cover.

I disagree with this a bit. The racist Right IS the core of the Minutemen and of neo-Nazis. They aren’t sneaking into it, they are its base and its core organizers.

Read all these articles, Orcinus has a huge amount of detail and links. Ditto for FireDogLake. This is blogging at its best.
