Growing Domestic Threat of White Supremacists

As if all of the warranted concern over Islamic jihadists and drug cartels was not enough, a new report from the Anti-Defamation League highlights the growing threat of a domestic group called the Aryan Circle.

Started in the prison system in the 1980's, the group now has over 1400 members in a number of metropolitan areas.

The full ADL report is found here. As the report highlights, membership outside of the prison system is growing as well. Also, while clearly a White Supremacist group, it is deeply involved in criminal activities. However, it is the hate aspects of their activities that differentiates this group from the "normal" criminal gangs.

Most of the group's members are concentrated in Texas, with cells in or near many metropolitan areas, including Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, Waco, San Angelo, Wichita Falls, and Midland/Odessa, among others.

It is not just the "other than Mexicans" that cross our border with the illegal immigrants that present a growing threat among us.

Special note to Daveed Gartenstein-Ross who asked the question tonight on Twitter, "A lot of tweeps follow jihadists obsessively. Anyone do the same with white supremacists?" Well, I had read the press release earlier and then saw his comment and decided to follow through.

Will the ADL and/or the SPLC be coming out with reports on Black, Mexican, El Salvadorean and Chinese Supremacist groups?

I don't know.

I think the ADL & SPLC are too busy chasing nonexistent militia 'threats', except possibly as an effort to restore linkage to the white supremacists. This will be hard to do since militias have tightened up their standards to exclude felons and racists. The ADL and SPLC will be forced to refer to white supremacist paramilitaries as 'militias', but given the paucity of data they put out regarding black and latino supremacists and criminal organizations, I wouldn't hold my breath that they will give the subject the treatment it deserves.

As collectivism rears it's ugly head in America, this is just par for the course. Another ignorant tribe rallies based on caveman ideology.

The ADL is itself a hate group...they're just subtle, and mainstream.

Shudderingly, I had no idea.
