White Supremacist Infiltration Of Law Enforcement, Armed Forces And Public Office
White supremacists have infiltrated our law enforcement agencies, our armed forces and public office to protect white supremacist, promote the white supremacist agenda and to deprive black people, other minorities and people who disagree with of their rights, their freedom and their lives. #WhiteSupremacist, #WhiteSupremacistCop, #WhiteNationalist, #RightWingExtremists, #KKK, #Racist, #Racism, #Hate, #Bigot
I was an FBI agent who infiltrated white supremacists. Too many local police don’t take the far right seriously — or they actively sympathize with them.Mike German Michael GermanFor decades, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has routinely warned its agents that the white supremacist and far-right militant groups it investigates often have links to law enforcement. Yet the justice department has no national strategy designed to protect the communities policed by these dangerously compromised law enforcers. As our nation grapples with how to reimagine public safety in the wake of the protests following the police killing of George Floyd, it is time to confront and resolve the persistent problem of explicit racism in law enforcement. I know about these routine warnings because I received them as a young FBI agent preparing to accept an undercover assignment against neo-Nazi groups in Los Angeles, California, in 1992. But you don’t have to take my word for it. A redacted version of a 2006 FBI intelligence assessment, White Supremacist Infiltration of Law Enforcement, alerted agents to “both strategic infiltration by organized groups and self-initiated infiltration by law enforcement personnel sympathetic to white supremacist causes.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Rep. Jamie Raskin, the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, released an unredacted version of a 2006 Intelligence Assessment by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) entitled, “White Supremacist Infiltration of Law Enforcement.” Previously redacted portions of the document, made public for the first time today, reveal startlingly prescient FBI warnings about the potentially dangerous effects of infiltration of law enforcement bodies by violent white supremacist ideas, attitudes, and organizations. “The public deserves to see the truth reflected in this finally unredacted report,” said Chairman Raskin. “The FBI saw long ago the multiple potential dangers associated with violent white supremacy and its efforts to infiltrate local law enforcement with ideas, attitudes, and personnel. Unfortunately, the FBI’s recent refusal to acknowledge and combat this threat under the Trump Administration—just like its refusal to appear today—constitutes a serious dereliction of duty. The infiltration of certain law enforcement departments by racist ideas, attitudes, and personnel is a clear and present danger to the vast majority of law-abiding officers, to minority communities and citizens, and to the general public.”
Jamie Raskin calls on FBI director to brief Congress on longstanding issue after police officers were involved in Capitol attackLois BeckettThe FBI must develop a strategy to respond to white supremacist infiltration of law enforcement agencies and address its past failures to take the issue seriously, a prominent Democratic congressman has argued in a letter to the FBI director, Christopher Wray. Multiple internal FBI reports over the past 15 years have labeled white supremacist infiltration of police departments as a serious threat. But last year, FBI officials refused to testify in a hearing about the topic, repeatedly telling congressional staffers that “it did not believe that this threat was supported by evidence” and “that there would not be any utility in the bureau offering testimony”, the Maryland congressman Jamie Raskin wrote in a letter to Wray on Tuesday. The presence of current and former police officers in the violent insurrection at the Capitol on 6 January was “irrefutable proof of this threat”, the congressman argued. “Given the FBI’s refusal just last year to admit that extremist police officers posed a serious threat to our nation’s security, I am now concerned that the bureau lacks an adequate strategy to respond to this clear and present danger to public safety,” Raskin, the chair of a subcommittee on civil rights and civil liberties, wrote.
Amanda RogersThe coordinated attacks on the U.S. Capitol as well as state houses and capitol buildings on January 6 came as a shock to many Americans, as did the widespread presence of members of hate groups among the rioters. But perhaps no aspect proved more troubling to the public than news that active-duty military and members of law enforcement participated in the attempted coup. To those who have long tracked white supremacist groups in the United States, however, this news came as no surprise. Many far-right hate groups have, for decades, included infiltration of branches of the military and law enforcement agencies as part of their organizing strategy. And you don’t have to look very hard to find evidence of their success: in the short period of examination between the coup attempt and President Biden’s inauguration, investigators discovered extremist ties among at least twelve National Guard members deployed to Washington, D.C., and further evidence of infiltration continues to emerge. Unfortunately, so far, the federal departments and agencies responsible for identifying and rooting out these hate groups—the Department of Defense, the FBI, and Congress—have not risen to the challenge and worked in a sustained, coordinated way to confront this national security threat.
White supremacists 'seek affiliation' with law enforcement to further their goals, internal FBI report warnsRacially motivated extremists want to "develop new tactics," the document says.By Josh MargolinIn some cases, they wanted to join the military or police so they would be able to commit acts of violence toward members of minority groups. In others, they planned to join the military or police to learn how to wage war against members of those minority groups. Based on investigations between 2016 and 2020, agents and analysts with the FBI's division in San Antonio concluded that white supremacists and other right-wing extremists would "very likely seek affiliation with military and law enforcement entities in furtherance of" their ideologies, according to a confidential intelligence assessment issued late last month. The document, obtained by ABC News, was distributed to law enforcement agencies both in Texas and elsewhere in the country. It focuses on extremists inspired by the white-supremacist publication "Siege," which served as motivation for the neo-Nazi group known as "Atomwaffen Division," among others. The report is titled "Siege-Inspired Actors Very Likely Seek Military and Law Enforcement Affiliation, Increasing Risk of Tradecraft Proliferation and Color of Law Offenses in the FBI San Antonio Area of Responsibility."
Before the 2016 election, White House senior adviser Stephen Miller regularly emailed Breitbart News editors. Hatewatch evaluated more than 900 of those correspondences. This series includes Hatewatch’s investigative analysis of those messages that reveal Miller’s alignment with white nationalist thought and far-right extremism.
Trump claims to be the least racist person in the world, he is not. He is one of the most racist person in the world. He a known a liar who lies about his lies so you cannot believe anything he says. If Trump mouth is open, it will probably be a lie. Over the years, repeatedly Trump has shown us he is trifling; he is a bully, a bigot, a racist and a white supremacist. Therefore, whom are you going to believe Trump a known lair or the facts? Trump is a trifling weak-minded bully who bullies people, but wines if somebody says something about him or says something he does like. Trump does not punch back, like a child he lashes out if somebody says something bad about him or hurt feeling. Below you will find examples of how petty Trump is that he is a bully, a bigot and a white supremacist.
Will Carless, USA TODAYLast month, Brandon Judd, who is a Border Patrol agent and the president of the National Border Patrol Council, a union representing more than 18,000 border patrol agents, sat for an interview with Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer. Wearing a black polo shirt bearing the crest of his union, the shaven-headed Judd stared intently into the camera as Hemmer asked him why he thinks President Joe Biden has allowed “Virtually an open border.” With a shake of his head, Judd responded: "I believe that they're trying to change the demographics of the electorate, that's what I believe they’re doing." As he spoke, the split-screen broadcast zoomed in on footage of people of color apparently crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, and Judd continued: "They want to stay in power, and the only way to stay in power is to continue to stay elected."
Andrew StantonRepresentative Paul Gosar, an Arizona Republican, turned against Nick Fuentes on Friday after facing criticism for recently attending his America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC). Gosar, along with GOP Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, received bipartisan backlash for attending the event hosted by Fuentes, who has faced accusations of espousing white nationalist views. Democrats and Republicans took issue with their appearance, prompting House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to plan meetings with both representatives. Last year, Gosar appeared at AFPAC in-person, and recorded a welcome message for the conference this year. While Greene has sought to distance herself from Fuentes in the weeks following their appearance in February, Gosar remained quiet until now.
Leaked documents show that about 18 out of 87 applicants, or 21%, to Patriot Front were currently or formerly affiliated with militaryMaya YangOne in five applicants to the white supremacist group Patriot Front claimed to hold current or former ties to the US military, according to leaked documents published and reviewed by the Southern Poverty Law Center and alternative media collective Unicorn Riot. Some 18 out of the 87 applicants, or 21%, said they were currently or previously affiliated with the military. One applicant, who claimed to be a former Marine, also said he currently worked for the Department of Homeland Security, according to the SPLC’s Hatewatch, a blog that tracks and exposes activities of American rightwing extremists. A white supremacist and neo-fascist hate group, Patriot Front emerged as a rebrand of the neo-Nazi organization Vanguard America in the aftermath of the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. more...
Neil MacFarquharIn the battle to stamp out extremism from the ranks of the police, lawmakers from California to Minnesota have proposed solutions they thought were straightforward. Some laws would empower the police to do more robust background checks of recruits, letting them vet social media to make sure new officers were not members of hate groups. Other laws would make it easier for departments to fire officers with ties to extremists. But legislators working to get these measures passed in recent months have found themselves confronting a thicket of obstacles and somewhat unexpected opposition, ranging from straight Republican vs. Democrat clashes to profound questions about protecting constitutional rights. more...
Racially biased policing was already a concern. Now, charges against officers in the Capitol riot inflame fears of extremists infiltrating law enforcement.Bart Jansen, USA TODAYWASHINGTON – Charges against police officers, public safety workers and military veterans in the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6 reignited concerns among lawmakers and law enforcement officials about violent extremists infiltrating government agencies. Out of 324 arrests in the Capitol riot, 43 are current or former first responders or military veterans, according to USA TODAY analysis. At least four police officers and three former officers face federal charges. Two have been fired, one resigned and one was suspended without pay. Each of the officers charged has either pleaded not guilty or has not yet been arraigned. The alleged participation of public safety officials who swore to uphold the Constitution has led lawmakers to sound the alarm. more...
The House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties hosted a remote hearing on white supremacists infiltrating police departments. Witnesses included law enforcement officers, legal experts, and a former Neo-Nazi. They discussed their experiences with racist police officers and expressed the dangers of white supremacy in law enforcement. Frank Meeink, a former Neo-Nazi, discussed how he and others were encouraged to join the police force “as a means to cause harm to people of color.” Members described ways to root out problematic police officers and change legal protections shielding police officers from being fired. video...
The government’s response to known connections of law enforcement officers to violent racist and militant groups has been strikingly insufficient.
Mike German Michael GermanRacial disparities have long pervaded every step of the criminal justice process, from police stops, searches, arrests, shootings and other uses of force to charging decisions, wrongful convictions, and sentences. As a result, many have concluded that a structural or institutional bias against people of color, shaped by long-standing racial, economic, and social inequities, infects the criminal justice system. These systemic inequities can also instill implicit biases — unconscious prejudices that favor in-groups and stigmatize out-groups — among individual law enforcement officials, influencing their day-to-day actions while interacting with the public. Police reforms, often imposed after incidents of racist misconduct or brutality, have focused on addressing these unconscious manifestations of bias. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), for example, has required implicit bias training as part of consent decrees it imposes to root out discriminatory practices in law enforcement agencies. Such training measures are designed to help law enforcement officers recognize these unconscious biases in order to reduce their influence on police behavior.
