KW: Have you noticed an up-tick in the activities of the Klan and neo-Nazis since President Obama took office?
DLJ: This is going to be a rather long answer. See, I try not to lend credence to the regular posturing of that crowd because you knew they were going to try and get some mileage from the first black president being elected. We always hear some story about how the number of hate groups rose – when in truth, many of them are just some chump who started a blog calling himself a group – or that such-and-such recent event is going to “wake up white people”. Today’s white racist activists are nowhere near as strong or even as dedicated as the ones you might have seen maybe twenty years ago. They are always rather young, and where the hate mongers of generations past still had a connection to those older ones who were active and successful, the young activists of today don’t have that solid foundation their predecessors had. The older ones are now dying or just giving it up, so without that “guidance,” if you will, the young ones show themselves to be more of a psychological train wreck looking for an outlet, than some dedicated White Aryan soldier trying to create a whites-only homeland. And it doesn’t help matters much that those older activists that are doing things today have in the past few years tempered their activities to be a little more mainstream-friendly. The groups trying to gain respectability now will stay away from Nazi and Klan symbols, they prefer to hold meetings and conferences as opposed to public rallies, and the rhetoric has been tempered. In fact, to make reference to the Klan is rather antiquated because anyone who says they are in the Klan in this day and age is seen as a buffoon even among white supremacists. Some white supremacist groups have even had people of color within their ranks! Needless to say, that is part of a rather fierce debate amongst them, but it gives you an idea of the climate out there. Having said that, these groups still have managed to create a greater threat in regard to that aforementioned “psychological train wreck,” lashing out and killing people. That is where you have seen the up-tick. It was a rather interesting thing during the last administration to hear conservatives beat their chest about how there hadn’t been a terrorist attack on our shores since 9-11, which was meant to be some sort of endorsement of President Bush. Well, what’s curious about that is the fact that with the exception of the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993, most if not all of the terrorist attacks have been by right-wing extremists. The abortion clinic bombings of the 80s, the abortion shootings of the 90s, the Oklahoma City bombing, Eric Rudolph‘s bombings, the shooting sprees of white supremacists Buford Furrow and Benjamin Smith in 1999 – all of those solidly right-wing. They quieted down while Bush was president, but as soon as Obama is elected we hear reports of all these loons across the country shooting people. The DC shooting was the second in as many weeks, and maybe the fourth or fifth since Election Day. Also, we can only imagine what we might be talking about today were it not for an abused wife killing her husband in Maine back in December. He was a racist who was reportedly building a dirty bomb at the time.

2 in Ariz. bombing case had ties to supremacists

PHOENIX (AP) — One of two Illinois brothers charged in a 2004 bombing that injured a black city official in a Phoenix suburb had extensive ties with white supremacist groups and once was deported from Canada because of his activities.
Groups that track hate groups describe Dennis Mahon, 58, as a prominent player in white supremacist groups for 15 to 20 years. Less is known about his twin brother, Daniel Mahon, but he also belonged to such groups, federal officials said Friday.
The brothers are charged with conspiracy to damage buildings and property by means of explosive. They were arrested Thursday at their home in Davis Junction, Ill., where authorities say they found assault weapons, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and white supremacist material.
The brothers pleaded not guilty and were in the custody of federal authorities in Illinois. They are scheduled for an extradition hearing Wednesday.
Authorities didn’t know if the brothers had attorneys.
On Feb. 26, 2004, a package detonated in the hands of Don Logan, Scottsdale’s diversity director at the time, in the city’s Human Resources Complex. The explosion injured his hand and arm and hurt a secretary.
Dennis Mahon led the Ku Klux Klan in Oklahoma in 1991, recruited neo-Nazis and boneheads in the former East Germany, and later joining White Aryan Resistance, according to the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center.
“Dennis Mahon in the 90s was one of the scarier guys around,” said Mark Potok, director of the center’s Intelligence Project.
In 1993, Dennis Mahon was deported from Canada after an immigration official ruled he would likely break the law while there. Officials there had obtained a videotape of a 1991 speech Mahon gave to the neo-Nazi Heritage Front in Toronto and similar tapes from Germany and the U.S.
Daniel Mahon was a member of the White Aryan Resistance and a recruiter for the KKK, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
A federal indictment unsealed Thursday says Dennis Mahon participated in the construction of the bomb, disguising it in a cardboard box addressed to Logan, an ombudsman for city employees and citizens on issues including racial and sex discrimination. The explosion forced the evacuation of 25 people in the building.
Dennis Mahon also is charged with malicious damage of a building by means of explosive and distribution of information related to explosives, according to the indictment.
Authorities said the Wednesday arrest of Robert Neil Joos, 56, of Missouri, arose from the bombing. He is charged with being a felon in possession of firearms but is not charged in the bombing.
Dennis Mahon made a call to a cell phone registered to Joos the morning of the bombing, according to an affidavit filed supporting the arrest.
A public defender assigned to his case did not immediately return a call for comment Friday afternoon.
Federal agents also raided the Indiana home of Tom Metzger, president of the White Aryan Resistance, as part of their investigation into the bombing, said Special Agent Tom Mangan, a spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Authorities removed computers and other items from Metzger’s house but did not arrest him.
A call to Metzger went unanswered, and he did not have an answering machine.
Mangan said authorities are looking into other members of white supremacist groups who associated with the Mahon brothers, and that more arrests could come in the bombing case.
