FBI: White Supremacists and militias have infiltrated police across US

A former FBI agent has documented links between serving officers and racist militant activities in more than a dozen states

White supremacist groups have infiltrated US law enforcement agencies in every region of the country over the last two decades, according to a new report about the ties between police and far-right vigilante groups.

In a timely new analysis, Michael German, a former FBI special agent who has written extensively on the ways that US law enforcement have failed to respond to far-right domestic terror threats, concludes that US law enforcement officials have been tied to racist militant activities in more than a dozen states since 2000, and hundreds of police officers have been caught posting racist and bigoted social media content.

The report notes that over the years, police links to militias and white supremacist groups have been uncovered in states including Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.

Police in Sacramento, California, in 2018 worked with neo-Nazis to pursue charges against anti-racist activists, including some who had been stabbed, according to records.

And just this summer, German writes, an Orange county sheriff’s deputy and a Chicago policeman were caught wearing far-right militia logos; an Olympia, Washington, officer was photographed posing with a militia group; and Philadelphia police officers were filmed standing by while armed mobs attacked protesters and journalists.

The exact scale of ties between law enforcement and militias is hard to determine, German told the Guardian. “Nobody is collecting the data and nobody is actively looking for these law enforcement officers,” he said.

Officers’ racist activities are often known within their departments and generally result in punishment or termination following public scandals, the report notes. Few police agencies have explicit policies against affiliating with white supremacist groups. If police officers are disciplined, the measures often lead to protracted litigation.  read more…

  1. Alleluia if that’s the truth! Becoming Racist feels sooooooo good… starting with Hussein and even more now!

  2. One area many people are surprised to find racism embedded with police is California, but I assure you, Rodney King should be looked at closely, and the departments north of LA as well.
    There are long rumors, of buried bodies, people disappearing after leaving the stations after being driven 40 miles to be at the station and released to begin with. For those having trouble understanding,.. just go to the individual departments websites and check the backgrounds of some of the commanders. Once inside, it is so easy to test, just by making a joke and watching reactions. horrifying.

  3. Mr. Kuhlmann, I have a personal hate page with the ADL. You have a membership card. Not the same.

  4. Someone clearly has never visited the United States and catches online snippets from Fox News. Every statement here is wrong and silly. Why are you here? Paid Troll?

  5. What a Crock of BS, Gordon Duff himself has stated there are no white supremacist, only fronts organized and funded by jew organizations like the ADL to keep donations flowing.
    What the USA needs is an honest dialog about race, not the lies that originated with Franz Boas from the Frankfurt School that states all races are the same, when there are observable differences, outside of skin color. Just read the inserts that come with pharmaceutical drugs about how the drug will affect blacks differently. If all races were the same, why the warnings on drugs?? Is the USA a land of equal opportunity or a land of equal outcomes??

  6. Looking at the city councils in my country ! Then I understand the current policy that is being pursued. 70/80 thinks the same as the 1%… And that is precisely what Mrs. Barbara Lerner Spectre says, isn’t it shocking !…
    (´EU the Nederlands’)

  7. There is an old Soviet joke about how much stress its folks had to endure with the personal cult of Lenin propaganda – ”A comrade comes to work in badly wrinkled clothes. His boss questions his unacceptable look. The guy, all stressed out, replies – ”Comrade nachal’nik (boss in Russian), this morning, I turned the radio on, it was Lenin speaking…. turned the TV on, it was him again… opened the window – it was Lenin from the loud speaker on the street… so I was just scared to turn on the iron to iron my clothes.”
    This is the case I am facing! Newspapers bark at me about the BLM and their superiority, madness, a good 80 percent of pictures are of that inner and outer darkness… I stopped watching TV by now… So, tell me, folks with this heavy propaganda of the world media, how can I return to the good old days when we somehow managed to live together?

  8. Wayne I believe nature divides us so we Homo Sapiens can retain some diversity. Diversity is what enables us (homo sapiens) to survive. It is essential that we as diverse races get along and that we cross-breed. This provides the species to survive and have a diverse resistance to plagues that attack us. Of course there are those who naively believe in a superior race and that a ‘chosen race’ exists superior to all others. If that occurred. That one race prevailed. The end would be swift.

  9. White supremacy and Zionism have the same tenet at the core. FYI white supremacist leader Richard Spencer has described himself as a “white Zionist.”

    They are both right wing ideology. Your rant about the government organizations and private companies is incoherent as it mixes apples and oranges. But more importantly VT has always been critical of abuse of power in every organization, be it a private individual or a government entity, left wing or right wing. You should pay attention more.

  10. It is truly amazing to watch so many Americans slide into right wing ideology! the comments on youtube are a frightening look into the effect right wing ideology has had on the mind set of Americans.
    FEAR AND HATE is all #NAZICULT45 has…..we are f’d……
    How can people claim self defense by a minor from another state whose conceal carry permit WAS NOT valid in Wisconsin since he was a minor and under the age of 21…the only exception for that was if he was hunting….crossing state lines with an illegal firearm to commit murder should make this a Federal crime? No? I feel like we are living in a bad episode of the Twilight Zone! FUBAR!

    • The comments on YouTube include paid posters. It’s a dirty campaign that helped elect Trump once to do what he has done so far to destroy the US, and they want to do it again to continue the path of war especially with Iran which was the only reason Adelson helped him campaign and get to the office.
      Every republican rightwing term the US goes further and further to the right. Reagan was a total lefty next to these bozos. Likud and the evangelical church has found their puppet and he will sell the country for two lousy shekels that he owes them.

  11. Another thing. My account with Twitter was suspended in June because I wrote that I had no idea that the names Aunt Jemima Maple Syrup and Uncle Ben’s Rice were terms that dated back to slavery. The vast majority of people around the world never knew that either. Twitter said that my not knowing was “hateful”. They have still refused to restore my account. I have posted the entire incident on my MEWE social media page and everyone agrees with me. I have asked all of my friends if they knew those names dated back to slavery too and none of them knew either. One of my cousins, John Brown, who was hanged for trying to end slavery was a hero of mine so, having Twitter suspend my account hurt a lot.

  12. This is a difficult matter. While I don’t consider myself to be a racist, I think, and I am not alone, judging from the comments on YouTube and elsewhere, that if the Police aren’t able to protect people’s businesses which they worked so hard for then, why should those businesses be burned to the ground if there are people who are willing to stand up and save them?

    I truly believe that not all of those people who are trying to defend those businesses are connected to “white supremacist” groups. Even if they were, it seems like they aren’t singling out just those men of color who are burning those businesses down.

    Our Constitution says we have a right to protest PEACEFULLY. Burning down someone’s business is NOT peaceful. The Police shootings must stop and the rioting needs to stop too.

    Recently, I had to let go my white Housekeeper for stealing. The agency tried to replace her with a black woman. Before all of this business with the rioters, I would have thought nothing about having her in my home but, because I have pictures of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in my home, I told her no. I didn’t want any type of racist situation. It turned out that my new Housekeeper, who is white, told me that she was refused by a black woman who said she didn’t want a white Housekeeper in her home.

    I have a feeling that will be the new reality for many businesses once this pandemic ends.

    • So you should have taken the pictures down! My goodness…..good luck explaining that one to your higher power in the afterlife!
