Neo-Nazis and Aryans Taking Over Where Tea Baggers Leave Off?

In this climate of the resurgence of hate and racism, America may be returning to its post-Civil War roots. The impetus is namely the excuse that America has its first president of African descent. There was a white pride march this past spring in downtown Jackson, Mich., whose goal was to “fight for the rights of whites.”

Although we have seen the rallies fostered by the Tea Baggers, there are even more substantially dreaded events scheduled to occur in the coming months. The Georgi-based League of the South has scheduled its 2010 national conference for the 8th and 9th of October at the Atlanta Airport Hilton. Founded in 1994, the League of the South is a neo-Confederate group that advocates for a second Southern secession and a society dominated by “European Americans.”

This Saturday, there will be an Aryan Nations rally at Gettysburg National Military Park. At this event, the members will be allowed to carry firearms on park grounds, under a new federal law that took effect in February. Gordon Young, who leads the Maryland chapter of the organization, has said the group intends to bring two rifles to "protect" the group's national director Paul Mullet. Young, the former head of the World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, was recently arrested on a statutory rape charge.

In addition, just this week in Arizona, members of the Neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement led by J. T. Ready and Harry Hughes have started patrolling the Pinal County and Mexican border armed with assault rifles. Ready, who has a criminal record, was also court-martialed twice and kicked out of the U.S. Marine Corps.

This is a troubling period in America. While the fringe hate groups and political extremists in white America continue to spew vitriol, many African Americans remain unconcerned and uninformed of the threat that we actually may be facing. We have elected the first African American president in U.S. history, but it seems that after the inauguration, many of us have left Obama out to dry with our reduced activism and support after he was in office. Will we recognize these threats and become more involved beyond voting and maintain our political vigor, or will we define this historical outcome with our inactivity?

I check my calender daily to make sure it is actually 2010 because it damn sure sounds like the old days are back.

You are right about the Black attitude in this era. People always laugh and talk smack about Negroes-but what people forget is it was the Negroes who did the fighting back during the Civil Rights Era.

The climate seems eerily reminiscent of the reconstruction era. Interesting that our "intellectual" brothers and sisters are not sounding the alarm........it seems we've forgotten our history.

It seems many of us are more concerned with celebrity gossip...SMDH

hmmm...this post begs the question, which came first the neo-nazis and aryans or the tea baggers. perhaps they are all one in the same - but in disguise...

pretty clear to me that some of us are living in post racial fairy tale land.

Your point is well taken and I feel that most of our folk are afraid of putting their voices out there for fear of hurting Obama. I think that all it takes is one missplaced quote and they'll bring it down on his head. You remember the whole Reverend Wright debacle amongst others. We've gotta do something but we've also gotta be smart about it.
