Investigators in the killings of a Texas district attorney and his wife suspect that the culprits may be a white supremacist prison gang called the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas. It makes sense that this was done by a hate-based criminal organization. A profit-based criminal organization would have a much more pragmatic agenda. A criminal organization’s response to stepped-up law enforcement should not be revenge—it should be bribery. Do I have to explain everything to people? It’s not smart for these white supremacists to bring attention to themselves. But I think that’s a lesson that’s lost on people who have swastikas tattooed on their faces.
Experts on the group say that the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas was evidently denied membership in the Aryan Brotherhood, for reasons that are unclear. I assume that it wasn’t due to improperly filled-out paperwork. Here’s some advice—when the Aryan Brotherhood doesn’t want to be associated with you, maybe it’s time to take a look at your methods and practices. So now the group goes by the name of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, which is another way of saying “The Really, Really Aryan Brotherhood.” Everything is bigger in Texas. And evidently everything racist is more racist in Texas.
Rush Limbaugh has his own theory on who is killing prosecutors in Texas. And this being Rush, his theory starts with the premise that it can’t be white people. Rush thinks that the culprits are the Mexican drug cartels. I guess Rush couldn’t find a way to shoehorn the New Black Panthers into this one. I’m just surprised the rightwing media isn’t trying to pin these murders on ACORN. Or George Soros.
Towson University in Maryland now has a student organization called “The White Student Union.” The White Student Union? Isn’t that another name for most private colleges anyway? WSU leader Matt Heimbach posted on their blog that “The virtue of white Christian womanhood is under attack at Towson University by degenerate criminals seeking to rob our women of their God given innocence.” It sounds like he’s describing a slave rebellion—and in his mind, he is. The Towson White Student Union is patrolling campus at night to fight what it claims is a rash of black-on-white crime. It looks like they plan to fight that imagined problem with a little old-fashioned white-on-black crime. For the record, Towson is the safest of Maryland’s universities—and Maryland’s universities aren’t exactly hotspots of criminal activity.
