    White racist!! Neo-nazi!!! or ex-military, a hero, who worked in psychological operations? The media's head is spinning over what to label the latest crazy shooter. Every article I have seen has included lots of information generously provided by the Southern Poverty Lawless Center. However his white skin, tattoo's and short/bald head will help them sell the "skinhead" theme the SPLC is trying to sell.

    What disturbs me most is this tidbit from the article: "(The SPLC), the Montgomery, Ala.-based law center said it had been tracking Page since 2000, when he "attempted to purchase goods from the neo-Nazi National Alliance, then America's most important hate group."

    Now how would they know who is purchasing what from whom? What access do they have to that information? What is it they actually do?

    The SPLC is a private spy group that has a few hundred million dollars sitting in accounts, courtesy of periodic scare letters they send to their supporters claiming that the "white supremacists" are on the verge of taking over the country. They have strong connections with a number of police departments and law enforcement agencies, similar to what the ADL has cultivated.

    SPLC apparently had an infiltrator in the Christian Identity compound in Oklahoma that housed Andreas Strassmeier and maybe Tim McVeigh, Elohim City I think it was called. Turns out the head of Elohim City had himself turned informant for the feds at some point. Typical far right group -- one fed or agent provocateur for every sincere supporter. There's a lot of fishy details involving the SPLC and the OKC bombing.

    Morris Dees's group sends people to attend right wing meetings to gather intelligence, and to infiltrate such groups when possible. I don't know what the deal with the National Alliance was as I never belonged to it or was interested in it and it was very insular when run by William Pierce, but it wouldn't be surprising if it was infiltrated by the SPLC and others. It fell apart almost immediately after Pierce's unexpected death, and the NA mailing list ended up in the hands of a number of people.

    The SPLC is pathetic. I actually know two people listed on their website. One is married to an ex-girlfriend of mine. The other is an acquaintance I used to work with some years ago. Both are Polish immigrants who listen to so called "white power" music. They even list them as being in a white supremacist gang which is absurd and I know it's not true.

    Gentlemen, Don't get yourselves in an uproar over this splc outfit. Once the sh*t hits the fan in this country, the sides will be evident for any normal person to see.
    There will be no grey areas. You'll either be with your group or you won't be. There'll be no "neutraility." This is only a minor blip. No big deal.
