It’s a ‘cute’ house located in a ‘nice’ neighborhood in the city of Toledo. Even has a Toledo-made Jeep in the driveway. Could be anywhere USA.
Do the neighbors left and right know that the man between is a suspected neo-Nazi with a stash of 18 firearms, body armor, and more than 40,000 rounds of ammunition? Probably not. And a felon? Doubt it.
According to the FBI, they found a video of a white supremist group gathering, National Socialist Movement, in his home. Additionally the agents confiscated a notebook that contained ‘targets’ of the Jewish Federation and NAACP locations in Detroit.
Last year another man firebombed an Islamic Mosque about 15 miles south of Toledo. In his ranting, the perpetrator had recently made anti-Muslim comments. Specifically, he had complained about the international Muslim community’s reaction to the anti-Muslim video on Youtube; recent attacks on United States’ embassies and the deaths of U.S. military personnel in the Middle East. He also complained that Muslims in this country get a “free pass,” according to the affidavit.
At his initial hearing was this:
When Judge Zouhary asked Linn if knew any Muslims personally, he replied, “No, I only know what I hear on the radio and see on Fox News.”
Here’s the question: who feeds men like these? Where do they get their propaganda? Who is responsible for filling men like these with hateful ideas?
Who? You know. Right-wing media, that’s who.
Multi-millionaire radio and TV personalities sit behind their studio microphones and blast out the hateful venom day after day. Poor schleps like the two above become so enraged that they act it out. Meanwhile, the perpetrators of the propaganda count their money.
Sick. And it’s not going to bet any better. White men now realize that they are a quickly disappearing majority in the United States, replaced by people with more melanin in their skin. And they are well-armed. That’s a dangerous combination. White privilege, learned throughout their formative years, no longer abides and these men won’t give up their status easily.
Look out America! The future is looking dim.
