moonscatter: these groups use violence and intimidation as their core tools, and have no problem using them against officials.


Then you should use a larger force of Violence and Intimidation against them and do it very quickly.
I mean, that IS the business model you employ against the average, ordinary, usually law-abiding citizen who had a job, and pays taxes.
Stop kissing these punks asses and knock them down.
Agreed, it's a hornet's nest, so you'r going to need a bigger can of spray.

dittybopper: KhamanV: Mugato: There are still Aryan hate groups outside of prison? That actually do things? I thought nowadays they all just sit around writing on Stormfront and drink Pabst Blue Ribbon. I guess I'm sheltered.

SPLC has an interactive map where you can find all the extremist groups operating in the US (white supremacist, actual radical islamists, militant anti-gay, etc).  It's about as heartwarming as the one where you can see where the fallout would spread if your area got hit by a nuke.

/35 hate groups in my state
/16 of them are white supremacist, including KKK
/fun fun fun

I'd take that map with a *MAJOR* grain of salt.

The SPLC is known to, erm, exaggerate both the numbers and the actual threats.  Here is a really good summary of the SPLC.


...Do you have any better sources than those? Scrolling down and seeing "White liberals HATE being called racists" and "bleeding-heart extremists" casts severe doubt on the how unbiased they are. Plus, the "evidence" that they've exaggerated the claims is "I've never seen them, and I asked all my friends - they'd never seen them either!" coupled with the cops saying that they've investigated, but didn't find anything criminal, so stopped. That doesn't mean that there isn't a sect there.

Almost every racist I've heard of make exceptions for "the good ones" when it's convenient.

As I recall the Japanese were made honorary Aryans, but the Chinese were not.  And no, Godwin's Law does not apply when we are discussing a group that calls itself The Aryan Brotherhood.


So were Muslims.

SPLC has an interactive map ---

I forgot to add that Texas has 62 groups.  In their state, the vast majority of these groups are white supremacist, including 26 chapters of the Ku Klux Klan.

holy shiatsnacks, a link!

Surely not in my city, with its modern infrastructure, cosmopolitan denizens, and gay mayor....

....well, only 3 within the city limits. And it looks like there's a KKK office on the same street as a Black Panther Party office. Wonder if they have a corporate softball league.

/not looking up which street that is on my work computer

Take the numbers with a grain of salt.  SPLC has been under some heat about inflating the numbers in order to fundraise off of them (i.e. the problem is getting worse, donate today!).  They have even started labeling so-called "pick up artists" as hate groups.  The number of groups seems to increase every year, so one wonders how they decide what constitutes a separate group vs. a gang that splinters into smaller groups.  Or a large group that has two addresses (e.g. in VA, the Nation of Islam is supposedly active in Richmond and Norfolk, but counted as two groups for Virginia).  Not sure if that is the best way to do it, but that is how they count.


r/mensrights? Absurd. Stupid, juvenile, and misogynistic sure, but hate group? C'mon splc, there are real hate groups to worry about

La Raza is the latino equivalent of the NAACP, and it considered an ally of SPLC.

They do list folks like Voz de Atzlan, however.

Phinn: pseudoscience: Phinn: vpb: If he just got a gun he would be perfectly safe and untouchable.

Maybe the government can declare a mobile 10-foot radius around every prosecutor as a "gun free zone."

Passing laws solves everything.  Words are just like reality.

You do realize that guns have a range a bit longer than 10 feet, right?

Then they had better enlarge the Gun Free Zone!

Since changing complex social realities is only a matter of writing new laws, it's a simple matter to add an extra zero or two to the radius of magic protection.


Laws are a nessesary part of a well regulated and functioning society.  You're advocating for anarchy because you can't reconcile the fact that laws do impact behavior in society. It's not clever, and it's not helping responsible gun owners contribute to the form those laws take.

With all the controversy over anti-terrorism laws and the continuing use of Guantanamo Bay as a prison for terrorists, it may turn out that the existence of the Aryan Brotherhood is a perfect reason for using these laws and keeping Gitmo open.

I really hope there were more compelling reasons than "safety concerns" that led to him withdrawing from the case. Because federal prosecutors bring cases against scary people all the time -- it is part of the job. If he honestly felt too afraid to continue on the case, he needs to not be a prosecutor anymore.

wiwille Thanks to browsing the SPLC map, today I learned there are more hate groups in California than Texas. Didn't see that coming. Perhaps I'm naïve.

I don't know about the numbers in comparison to Texas, but away from the coasts, you get some seriously redneck-y areas in California.  As in some serious white supremecist activity including kkk and Aryan nations groups, not to mention the prison gangs.  California isn't just LA/SF/Berkeley.   Not by a long shot.

WhoGAS: pciszek: WhoGAS: This was when it was still okay to be vocally racist, too, 80s and early 90s.

I hear that overt racism is more socially acceptable in the south now than it was in the 80's.

Not sure about that.  I haven't been back to Texas in about four years.  I do visit Oklahoma when a relative dies (5 in this last 12 month time-span including dad and sister) so I tend to interact with them often; well, the ones who are left - heh.

The Oklahomans, whatever race/creed/color, are much friendlier and welcoming than anyone around me in San Diego/Poway have ever been so I don't think it's bad.

Here (CA), I feel the racism deeply...as a white person, I had never encountered it before but here, just wow...being told that you aren't right for the job because they need a Mexican or Asian...Nah, they're not that bad, but if you're not the same race as the person you run into, well you have no chance at becoming friends.


Well, I heard from someone in Alabama, but he wasn't referring to racism directed against white people.

When you're using a source as evidence for your claims, someone attacking the source's credibility is not only valid, it's necessary. This prevents an article written by your crazy uncle from being used to refute an article written by an actual researcher. This is not to be confused with attacking the source directly, ie: "that newspaper is full of WHORES!"

This is roughly the same argument currently being advanced by other smart 'conservatives' like yourself in support of not bothering with climate change.

1) It isn't happening.
THEN
2) Ok its happening, but it isn't man causing it
THEN
3) Ok so it is happening and we ARE causing it, but its so far gone, whachagonnado?


SAME AS

1) Guns don't kill people people do.
THEN
2) Ok, maybe guns make it significantly easier for people to kill people
THEN
3) Hey, ok, guns are killing us, but WTF, take my guns and only criminals will have guns! Severly limiting access to firearms now will never have ANY effect on the future availability of said firarms!

Its amazing that you (and others in this thread) don't see the inherent stupidity in your argument.

So the jails are overflowing with people who wrote bad checks? What would your suggestion be for someone writing a bad check to begin with to rehabilitate them? How do you "rehabilitate" the meth head who shot someone also? I don't disagree those two crimes are vastly different in nature and should be treated as such, but hyperbolizing the situation is not advantageous to your argument.

Maybe there are just more minority criminals then white criminals.

Not quite. More minority people, a disproportionate percentage of their numbers, are incarcerated. This does not necessarily mean there are fewer white criminals or that whites are less likely to be criminals, only that more minority pople are arrested, prosecuted and locked up. And I can provide a large part of the reason: several times in my long life white cops -- and not only in the South -- have told me that since I'm white they're going easy on me.

One of those times was driving down Route 29 on Christmas night to find myself not just pulled over but literally surrounded by 3 or 4 police cars and required to exit my vehicle at gunpoint: it turned out that a cop had seen me back into his cruiser in a 7/11 parking lot and then just drive away. The reason I drove off like nothing had happened was because I hadn't noticed it because we had the radio turned up and anyway the dent they showed me was so minor a normal person would have shrugged it off. It wasn't like I'd smashed up the cop's fender on purpose and scurried off laughing: had I noticed that the obvious thing to do would have been to park right away and scurry in to the 7/11 to express contrition. After about 10 minutes of hard talk they accepted my answer (one cop said "I get it, he's saying he's not THAT stupid"), and I wound up getting only a 4-point ticket for Unsafe Backing, but that encounter greatly exacerbated my stammering and sorely tried my bladder control.

But here's the point: more than once they made it clear to me that because I was white, looked "basically respectable" and was properly deferential they were not going to search the car despite the aroma they'd noticed as soon as I rolled down the window. This was very good because not only were the three of us stoned on reefer but between us we were also transporting some marijuana packaged for resale, carrying several hits of LSD and a bit of hash, and were driving down there anyway so the friend of a friend in the back seat could sell a few grams of Bolivian flake.

But we were all white and dressed sort of preppy (it was after all Christmas night and we had been to a semi-formal party), and I blubberingly showed my abject fear respect for police authority, so they went easy on us. And this from cowboy cops who noted at least 3 times that they'd rather not have to work on Christmas night on a holiday weekend in the first place.

I got four points for Unsafe Backing and slightly dampened Levi's. When a carload of "non-white" 19-20 year olds would surely have been searched and busted and most likely sent to prison for several years.

So why might there be more "minorities" in the clink?

Sheesh.

vpb: If he just got a gun he would be perfectly safe and untouchable.



Intruder shot dead at home of rural Colorado prosecutor

The prosecutor then told dispatchers that the stranger forced his way into her home. An altercation ensued inside and shots were fired, leaving the unidentified man dead, police said.

A spokeswoman for one of the agencies investigating the incident told Reuters that the prosecutor and her husband, himself a sheriff's deputy, both fired at the intruder, but it is too early in the probe to know who fired the fatal shot.

vicioushobbit: the money is in the banana stand: Mugato: There are still Aryan hate groups outside of prison? That actually do things? I thought nowadays they all just sit around writing on Stormfront and drink Pabst Blue Ribbon. I guess I'm sheltered.

Go to any smaller SE Texas city like Jasper, the Aryan brotherhood is still alive and active. My friend's car broke down in Jasper (white guy with dreads) and he was abducted by 2 guys and held in their bathroom. He managed to untie himself and sneak out the window and find his way to the highway. He was pretty sure bad stuff was going to happen to him because he had "n*gger hair". They have actual signs up pointing you to where their lovely gatherings are held along the road. These people are NOT friendly.

Police report? I'm assuming if he snuck out the bathroom and made it to the highway he made note of the house's location.


LOL and filed a report at the nearest station, wouldn't you?

Hell no, from my home town station.  That's where I'd file the report.

ongbok: pciszek: Mugato: orclover: Makes me wonder if the Aryans and the Banditos have a truce or what.

Almost every racist I've heard of make exceptions for "the good ones" when it's convenient.

As I recall the Japanese were made honorary Aryans, but the Chinese were not.  And no, Godwin's Law does not apply when we are discussing a group that calls itself The Aryan Brotherhood.




The Japanese are the Texans of the Orient.

The French are the Texans of Europe.

Everythings bigger and better in France ... sigh

The One True TheDavid: JustGetItRight: MyKingdomForYourHorse:

Yep, because housing someone who wrote a bad check with another guy who cooked meth and shot someone is a great idea and works towards the idea of rehabilitation.

You're living in a fantasy world if you think anyone's doing prison time for writing a bad check.

Ever heard of Three Strikes? I've read about middle-aged guys getting locked up for the rest of their lives for failing to successfully shoplift a pizza.

What planet are you posting from?


In the case of three strikes, he isn't going to prison for shoplifting a pizza.  He's going to prison for repeatedly proving that he cannot follow the rules of society.  Given that the overwhelming majority of crimes are committed by repeat offenders he is exactly the guy that needs to removed from society.

The planet I'm from is the one where people with little or no criminal history are rarely if ever incarcerated beyond a few days in the county or municipal jail for misdemeanor offenses, particularly non-violent ones.  If for no other reason, there simply isn't enough bed space for it - otherwise known as planet Earth, United States version.

The Ayrans, MS-13, Mexican Mafia, and assorted other prison gangs aren't recruiting in the local lockup.  They're in the big state and federal facilities and those facilities aren't holding the guy who bounced a check at Wal-Mart.
