Neo-Nazis: We’re Totally Different From the KKK

In what one might describe as racist asshole on racist asshole crime, a neo-Nazi group and a KKK group are planning competing anti-immigration rallies in Texas (of course) and the neo-Nazis want you to know that they’re nothing like those jerks in the KKK.

The Michigan-based National Socialist Movement is planning a “show of force” against illegal immigration Saturday afternoon at the Rockwall County Courthouse, in suburban Dallas – where city officials have decided not to enforce permit rules.

“We have everything from illegal alien gangs, to violent druglords, and even mystery illnesses crossing over America’s southern border from Mexico,” the neo-Nazi group says. “Our rally will be a show-of-force. The good people of mainstream and middle America will not tolerate this rampant injustice anymore.”

A Ku Klux Klan group plans a separate rally for noon Saturday in Nacogdoches, a couple of hours east, giving truly dedicated anti-immigration activists time to attend both.

The Texas Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, based in Hunt County, are rallying against all “mass” immigration, whether it’s legal or illegal.

“Honorable native-born white American men and women” must “keep America American,” the Klan group said in its flier.

The neo-Nazis plan to leave the courthouse in Rockwall for a private ranch for a barbecue and swastika-burning, while the Klan klavern intends burn a cross after their demonstration…

“Hmph! Well, they’re not anything like us,” National Socialist leader Jeff Schoep told columnist Bud Kennedy. “We’re both pro-white, but our politics are very different.”

Schoep claims the National Socialist group is political, while the Klan promotes religion.

Well there you have it. One group is made up of religious fascists, the other of non-religious fascists. And keeping them straight is apparently very important.

    Are the so stupid as to think ebola is coming from Mexico?

    At least they’re not Illinois Nazis.

    The neo-Nazis are hardly non-religious. Other than the right-wing Xian Teabaggers who belong, there’s also the Aryan Brotherhood Odinists. I suppose there might be a few atheists in the bunch, but I’ll bet they keep quiet about it at rallies.

    Wait a minute. Why are the city officials not enforcing permit laws? Bunch of bleeding heart liberals giving amnesty to illegal protesters! I’m not against all political speech, but shouldn’t we expect people to follow the law?

    How low do you have to go before the neo-Nazis are insulted by the comparison?

    Kinda screws up Godwin’s Law, no?

    …native-born white American men and women….

    Well, seeing how white people are themselves immigrants to America, this is kind of an oxymoron.

    Schoep claims the National Socialist group is political, while the Klan promotes religion.

    Well, I guess this is like the difference between, say, those progressive liberals who may also be Christian and those democratic socialists some of whom are atheists. Except in the mirror universe, where everyone has a goatee.

    Yeah, I know …

    But there is still a chance that something more intelligent, more valuable, more (for want of a better word) human will crawl out of the milk carton than what we see above!

    Yes. I would bet that they are.

    John Pieret,

    You really think the best way to express your disgust with Nazis is to propose genocide?

    It has to be understood that the conservative mind is much more driven by disgust than the liberal mind. As such the fascist tendency is often a reaction to disgust and perceived contamination and disorder. Which means that fascists tend to want demonstrate their orderliness by tightly defining their group and mission. The line between religious and non-religious is largely meaningless in this context to most people but, to them, it is a statement of who they are, what category they belong in, and respect for those points demonstrates their respect for what they see as proper order and legitimacy.

    To see this in action, without having to get too close, you can examine the tendency to establish complex and detailed structures of rank, title, and authority within such organizations. Yes, the majority of these organizations are often now just a bunch of beer drinking buddies with visions of competency but even the roughest organizations usually have a organizational chart somewhere that is impressive in both its scope and depth.

    This comes back to the two ideas that these groups originate from a feeling of disgust over disorder, weakness and a feeling of contamination and a desire to counter that disorder with an organization that comes together to gain power and assert their legitimacy to be used to impose order and structure. The delineation of who is or is not in the group is important for those with that mindset to establish and maintain this legitimacy.

    The Klan/s, Daughters of the American Revolution, and other similar groups are all obsessed with lineage and blood lines to maintain their standing and legitimacy. Which, IMHO, has to do with their obsession with contamination a hyperactive sense of disgust and a deep fear of disorder.

    There is nothing new about any of this. The Bible has a whole lot of material dealing with family lines, rules that warn against the mixing of ‘kinds’, and definition of what is clean and un-clean.

    There is a critical difference between the two: they both hate blacks, Jews, Mexicans, gays, and Asians but, in addiction, the KKK also hates Catholics, a double whammy for those south of the border
