Most people reading this post will have never have seen the image of or know who George Lincoln Rockwell was; this is what makes him, and the movement that he once led, dangerous.
Last week, we saw white men dressed in Nazi regalia and most Americans just dismissed them as crazy white men. They are crazy, but dangerous. Here is a quote from the late “crazy” Rockwell, that his supporters read every day for inspiration:
If we are to be the last of the white men who conquered the world; if we are finally to be overwhelmed by a pack of rats, let us at least face the death of our race as our ancestors faced their death—like MEN. Let us not crawl down amongst the rats begging for mercy or trying to out-sneak them and pretend to be rats ourselves!
The neo-Nazis you saw last week are preparing for a race war. They are brainwashing their young supporters that the race war has begun! Last week, it was no accident that a 20-year old white man plowed a car into anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, just as it was no accident that a 21-year old neo-Nazi murdered nine black people in Charleston, South Carolina two years ago. These, and other hate crimes – far too many to name here – are these peoples’ effort at starting a race war.
It is important that we begin to connect the dots. These white supremacists are arming themselves; they are domestic terrorists that are not on the government’s radar. They have joined the military and law-enforcement agencies and they are preparing for war. In Virginia, a state where guns can be carried openly, many supremacists did.
Too many Americans are not paying attention. Some people watch clocks to tell what time it is. I watch people. You can learn a lot, if you pay attention.
In 13 days, we will have the 54th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington. This event will be held on Monday, August 28, 2017, to commemorate that march.
Please join us on August 28, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. at the Civil Rights Foot Soldiers Memorial, across from, the Arundel Center, 44 Calvert Street, Annapolis, Maryland.
A Luta Continua!
Carl Snowden is a political and civil rights leader in Annapolis.
