Undesirable army / Shortfalls allow the entry of hate-filled recruits
With Gang Members, NeoNazis and other hate-group members being trained in urban warfare, America should be a fun pplace to live when "little Adolph" comes marching home.
Editorial: Undesirable army / Shortfalls allow the entry of hate-filled recruits:
Sensing an opportunity for mischief, white supremacists are enlisting and volunteering for battle assignments so they can get training in light infantry tactics they'll need for what they see as the coming race war in America. According to a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center, large numbers of neo-Nazis and white supremacist skinheads, possibly in the thousands, are on active duty in the U.S. military.
When a Defense Department investigator positively identified 320 racist extremists in the past year, only two were discharged, according to The New York Times. This reflects a 'see no evil, hear no evil' stance by the military in a time of recruitment shortfalls.
A warm body, even if it has racist tendencies, is still a warm body to anxious recruiters. A volunteer military that tolerates a racially intolerant fifth column in its midst has decided that scraping the bottom of the barrel for recruits makes tactical and military sense. This is shortsighted and will prove disastrous in the long run.
