Why White Supremacists Support Barack Obama

wow, OK it's not scientific but whatever :)

Esquire article

Why White Supremacists Support Barack Obama

How do racists, anti-Semites and all-purpose hate-mongers view the possibility of Americaís first black president? Not necessarily the way you think they would.

By: David Peisner

If recent polls are to be believed, white voters favor John McCain over Barack Obama by nearly ten percentage points, but the McCain and Obama camps probably havenít factored in the following fact: In an informal Esquire survey, three out of four white supremacists prefer Obama, while McCain is the clear favorite among black nationalists. (Sure, our methodology suffered from an extraordinarily low sample size--limited to four white supremacists and one black nationalist--but just because it wouldnít fly with Gallup doesnít mean there ain't a kernel of truth in there.) This is just one of many surprising views that emerged after we talked to extremists about this historic electoral showdown between a 46-year-old black man and a 71-year-old white man.

Tom Metzger

Who: Director, White Aryan Resistance

Likes: White people, karaoke, environmentalists

Dislikes: Race-mixing, Jews, the federal government, capitalism

Career Highlights: Was Grand Dragon of Ku Klux Klan in the 70s; won the Democratic primary during his bid for Congress in 1980; appeared on the episode of Geraldo Riveraís show in 1988 when Riveraís nose was broken in a brawl.

"The corporations are running things now, so itís not going to make much difference who's in there, but McCain would be much worse. Heís a warmonger. Heís a scary, scary person--more dangerous than Bush. Obama, according to his book, Dreams Of My Father, is a racist and I have no problem with black racists. Iíve got the quote right here: 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my motherís white race.' The problem with Obama is heís being dishonest about his racial views. Iíd respect him if heíd just come out and say, 'Yeah, Iím a black racist.' I donít hate black people. I just think itís in the best interest of the races to be separated as much as possible. See, Iím a leftist. Iím not a rightist. I hate the transnational corporations far more than any black person."

Ron Edwards

Who: Imperial Wizard, Imperial Klans of America

Likes: Guns, bed sheets, burning crosses

Dislikes: Black people, homosexuals, immigrants

Career Highlights: Sued in 2007 by the Southern Poverty Law Center for inciting the brutal beating of a Latino teenager; building the IKA into one of the nationís largest Klan groups by allowing non-Christians to join.

"Obama, I think heís a piece of shit. I donít care that his mother was white. I donít think he has enough brains to do anything good. All heís living off of is the color of his skin to get elected. I donít think America wants a black president. Most of them are too afraid to say that they believe the way I believe. They sit around their dinner table and talk the way I do, but when they get out in public, they have two faces and show the other face. When people are voting in the booth privately, theyíll vote Republican even if theyíre a Democrat. If he wins, Iíll laugh. I donít like McCain, but heís the only one I can vote for. Heís against a lot of the things that Iím for. Iím afraid that heís going to mess with gun laws. But Iím going Republican and I talked to my guys and most of them are voting for McCain too."

Erich Gliebe

Who: Chairman, National Alliance

Likes: Third Reich, the movie Rocky

Dislikes: Integration, Jewish-controlled media

Career Highlights: Turning white-power record label, Resistance Records, into a million-dollar-a-year business juggernaut; an 8-0 record as a professional boxer under the nickname, "The Aryan Barbarian."

"Obama might be a better candidate for our cause because heís racially conscious. One of our big things in the National Alliance is to raise the racial consciousness of our people. Young whites in universities, theyíve been stripped of any kind of racial identity. Obama may be a racist in a positive sense for his people--that will awaken a lot of the whites, knock some sense into them. Theyíll see that non-white Americans are allowed to be proud of who they are, to be racially conscious, to talk about their people or their community without being attacked as being racist. Letís face it, white people arenít going to fight for their causes, for their kind with a white president. I donít think McCain even acknowledges that a white race exists. Heís all about granting amnesty to illegal aliens. The fact he wants to keep us in wars in the Middle East for 100 years, thatís not a good thing. I give Obama credit, he seems to have stuck to his guns as far as pulling the troops out of Iraq. Heís a very intelligent man, an excellent speaker and has charisma. John McCain offers none of that. Perhaps the best thing for the white race is to have a black president. My only problem with Obama is perhaps heís not black enough."

Rocky Suhayda

Who: Chairman, American Nazi Party

Likes: Hitler, white people

Dislikes: Jews, immigrants, multinational corporations

Career highlights: Being widely quoted bemoaning in the fact that so few Aryan-Americans had the cojones of the 9/11 hijackers: "If we were one-tenth as serious, we might start getting somewhere."

"White people are faced with either a negro or a total nutter who happens to have a pale face. Personally Iíd prefer the negro. National Socialists are not mindless haters. Here, I see a white man, who is almost dead, who declares he wants to fight endless wars around the globe to make the world safe for Judeo-capitalist exploitation, who supports the invasion of America by illegals--basically a continuation of the last eight years of Emperor Bush. Then, we have a black man, who loves his own kind, belongs to a Black-Nationalist religion, is married to a black women--when usually negroes who have 'made it' immediately land a white spouse as a kind of prize--thatís the kind of negro that I can respect. Any time that a prominent person embraces their racial heritage in a positive manner, itís good for all racially minded folks. Besides, America cares nothing for the interests of the white American worker, while having a love affair with just about every non-white on planet Earth. Itíd be poetic justice to have a non-white as titular chief over this decaying modern Sodom and Gomorrah."


Who: General, Israelite School Of Universal Practical Knowledge

Likes: Segregation

Dislikes: White oppressors, black women, American culture, Muslims, Christians, Martin Luther King Jr.

Career Highlights: Featured in 1999 BBC program about black supremacists; his street corner rants in Washington D.C. spurred changes in the local noise ordinance.

"Finding out Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee for president was one of the saddest days in black history. Another legacy of black death is about to begin, just like it began back in the '60s with probably the greatest traitor to black people in modern-day history, Martin Luther King. Every black leader that has some form of power has given black people false hope, when in fact, the closer they get to the white establishment, the more they become an actual enemy to black people. Black people need to move away from the establishment and towards a moral change. As for Obama, first of all, heís not even a black man in the terms of what real black people consider a black man. Heís of African and white descent. How easily he dismissed his affiliation with Reverend Wright, was a clear indication that this is a politician, not a man of any real conviction. The same way he threw away that Reverend, once he becomes president, he must throw away black people. Heís going to have to harm black people to make white people satisfied that heís not Reverend Wrightís boy. The disappointment weíre going to suffer from him is going to set us back another fifty years. McCain is definitely the better shot for black people."

sure there this.  ;) whether we agree or disagree with these viewpoints does not mean that these people, and others, don't think just like this. Without knowing what the "other side" thinks, how can you educate them or defend against their statements? It's the old adage of "know thine enemy".  ;)

and just like in some of the other threads about criminalization of hiv+ people, it doesn't matter what "we" think, it really matters what "they" think. If the crowd of "them" is large enough, whatever they say, and make into law, is what we all have to deal with.

hopefully, and I think it's true, these kind of opinions are in the minority.
