Nine suspects associated with some of the country’s most established and violent white supremacist groups have been arrested on hate crimes charges, the Southern Poverty Law Center reports.

They were detained early Saturday, mere hours after James Alex Fields, Jr., the neo-Nazi who drove his car into a crowd of anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Heather Heyer.

One of the people arrested was Travis David Condor, head of the hate-music record label American Defense Records. He had praised Mathews on social media. Condor was also photographed rallying alongside members of the Hammerskin Nation at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.

Condor is known for previously joining three others in attacking a homeless Cleveland man in 2010, beating him with pipes and a baseball bat and accusing him of “trespassing” and being a “bum.” Condor was on active duty with the 82nd Airborne Division at the time — sporting a “baby killer” patch on his fatigues — but was sentenced to just 90 days in prison after giving a face-to-face apology to the victim, with time served.

An absolute disgrace these white supremacists are.

Are these the same 'very fine people' trump praised?

This weekend marked the anniversary of Robert Jay Mathews.

The Order was founded in September 1983 by Robert Jay Mathews, who was then the Pacific Northwest coordinator for the neo-Nazi National Alliance, based in West Virginia, and also an associate of the neo-Nazi Aryan Nations of Idaho. (Mathews lived in Metaline Falls, Wash., at the time.) Mathews took the name of the group from The Turner Diaries, a futuristic race war novel written by William Pierce, founder and leader of the National Alliance. Ultimately, more than 20 people, including many members of the Aryan Nations and other groups, joined. In addition to the assassination of Berg, members also murdered one of their own who they thought had loose lips. In the end, the group was uncovered by authorities who caught a member passing counterfeit bills and “turned” him. Mathews was tracked to a house on Whidbey Island, Wash., and killed in a fiery 1984 shootout with federal agents. His death is still commemorated annually by hard-line white supremacists.

The present political climate has way too many coming out of the woodwork, it is good to see them charged.

I just can't.....

Many white supremacists were outraged by Fields’ conviction Friday. Christopher Cantwell, known to many as the “Crying Nazi” for his reaction after learning of the warrant out for his arrest after his participation in the Charlotteville rally, posted a particularly threatening response on the racist social network Gab. Fields’ arrest, he said, “will drive us toward your complete and total destruction, as a matter of necessity for our very survival.”

Referencing Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof and Pittsburgh synagogue shooter Robert Bowers, Cantwell warned, “You are creating an army of fanatics who are ready to die.”

Oxygen thieves. The lot of them.

Good riddance. Too bad our prison system allows them to spew their hatred and recruit.

They are not only racists but terrorists. Please research the story of Alan Berg.
