Nazis-of-colour OK by us

US school shooter bright but troubled teen

A Chippewa Indian boy who carried out the deadliest US school shooting in six years was a bright youngster beset by family tragedy who rebelled in both the clothes he wore and a fascination with neo-Nazi beliefs, according to details that have been emerging.


"He's had a lot of tragedy in the past eight years," his aunt, Kim Desjarlait told MSNBC today. She said she had not seen him since 2001, and was devastated by the news.


The FBI has said it cannot yet discuss a motive for Monday's tragedy.


One of Weise's postings talked about the cultural and genetic dilution of native Americans and said, "It's hard though being a native American National Socialist – people are so misinformed, ignorant and closed-minded it makes your life a living hell."


Does anyone doubt that if the kid was a red-neck from the deep south of the US and was affiliated to neo-Nazi groups that there would be any attempted understanding? Since when does being a Nazi-of-colour make insane socialist beliefs alright? It appears living on a reservation makes any half-arsed racist beliefs just fine and dandy.


  • The sympathetic spin on Nazis of color excerpted here is certainly a minority view. I haven't seen anything like this anywhere else.

    Were you in Sweden when Swedish Nazi of color and Malexander copkiller Jackie Arklöv made the news? He ended up getting a lot less media play than Tony Olsson, a somewhat more comprehensible homegrown psychopath. I don't think he got a pass for the color angle, though. It was just that he was so obviously stark raving bonkers that he wasn't as interesting as the charismatic Olsson.
