"BLUE" JIMMY:  As terrorist groups have become a dominant subject in domestic and world politics in at least the last few decades, it has come to light that White Supremacist groups are still active and among them.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Shameful!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  While most folks in this country seem to frown upon these groups and many have protested their activities in a spirited manner, few have gone through the trouble of actually researching the origins of White Supremacy and finding out exactly what these groups believe. 

BLIND DOG OZZY:  That's where we come in!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  While most people assume White Supremacy in this country began with slavery and its attendant attitudes in Early America, it does have deeper origins.  Scientific Racism,  as a movement, has been around since at least the 1600's in the Western World.  This movement attempted to find a scientific basis for racist beliefs and postulated that there were distinct superior races and inferior races.  While this theory started to fall out of favor by the start of the 20th century and is considered somewhat of a pseudoscience today, it is still used by White Supremacist groups today to justify their beliefs.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Out of the loop!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Now we can move on to Early America.  It is a well known fact that many founding fathers (e.g. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson) were Black slave owners.  Despite the democratic fervor of the time, slavery was still acceptable due to historical and biblical references to slavery.  And honest Abe Lincoln, the President who issued the Emancipation Proclamation, was not exactly Malcolm X or Martin Luther King.  While he believed that slavery was morally wrong, he did not believe that Blacks and other Colored races were inherently equal with Whites. This has fueled the fire for many racist beliefs for generations.

"BLUE" JIMMY:  One group that may have sparked White Supremacist racism in America, was the Knights Of The Golden Circle which was a secret society and a precursor to the Klu Klux Klan and whose original intent was to annex parts of Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean in an attempt to beef up the power of the slave-holding elite.  
Out of the Knights Of The Golden Circle came the Klu Klux Klan which historical writings tell us, was formed primarily as a social club made up of ex-Confederate soldiers who wanted to vent their frustrations due to the outcome of the Civil War.  This "socializing" soon turned to strange rituals, midnight rides in scary hooded costumes meant to intimidate superstitious rural Black folks and ultimately terrible burnings and lynchings which made original Klan Grand Wizard and former Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest, disband the KKK  in disgust.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  What kind of s**t did I get into?

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Less known but still active at the time, were White Supremacist groups such as the White League and the Red Shirts.  Unlike the Klan, these were not-so-secret societies who made their identities known in their communities and relished newspaper coverage of their dirty deeds directed at the Reconstruction Government, freed slaves and their sympathizers.  The KKK laid dormant for many years until it was revived in the early 1900's.  This time the Klan was focusing their enmity not just on Blacks but also on Jews and Catholic immigrants who were in great number at that time.  This incarnation of the Klan is the one which employed cross burnings and large public gatherings in full costume, in an attempt to intimidate its perceived enemies.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Note to Klan:  If you wanna scare someone, take your pajamas off first!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  This second version of the Klan seemed to die out at the beginning of the Great Depression, possibly because the leisure activities of wealthy, White, racist folks were limited by the poor economy. The Klan again revived at the end of World War II and this time, fueled by the progress of the Civil Rights Movement, they had a pronounced Nazi, Aryan, Nordic bent.  This is where we plunge into the bizarre and occult-obsessed world of the Nazis in the Third Reich.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  "Nazis, I hate these guys!" 

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Contrary to popular belief, adherents of Nazism and members of the Nazi Party in WWII Germany did not pull their beliefs out of their asses.  Their beliefs, doctrines, rites, rituals and symbology were carefully extracted from esoteric and occult writings which were popular with the German and European intelligentsia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Among these were the writings of Edward Bulwer - Lytton (1803 - 1873), a prolific and very popular writer of his time who coined the phrase, "The pen is mightier than the sword." 
His writings were said to have influenced Bram Stoker, the author of "Dracula" (1897) and later inspired writers of horror, science fiction and the occult.  Of his many writings, the one most taken to heart by early Master Race proponents was, "Vril:  The Power Of The Coming Race" (1871), which tells the story of a subterranean race of beings superior in intelligence to humans, who escaped The Great Flood by fleeing underground.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Where else?

"BLUE" JIMMY:  They make use of an etheric force called vril which like the the Chinese chi, the Indian prana and Wilhelm Reich's orgone, was said  to pervade all things and gave them the power to both destroy and heal and would one day allow them to return to the surface of the Earth and dominate the planet once again.  Bulwer - Lyttons's writings were further echoed in the writings of  Helena Petrovna Blavatski  (1831 - 1891),  a Russian-born occultist and spirit medium.
  Her writings such as "Isis Unveiled" (1877) and "The Secret Doctrine" (1888) were well received by a public who had only recently had their spiritual beliefs dashed by the publication of Charles Darwin's "The Origin Of Species" (1859) and "The Descent Of Man" (1871).  While Darwin argued that the existence of humans could be explained in cold, clinical, scientific terms, Blavatsky's writings offered an alternative history of humankind which allowed learned people of her day to retain deep spiritual beliefs while simultaneously, accepting the current discoveries of science which were plentiful at the time.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  What are we, if not men of SCIENCE?!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  In her writings, Blavatsky claimed that she encountered beings she referred to as The Great White Brotherhood.  These "Ascended Masters" as they are alternately known is some occult circles, are said to impart advanced wisdom to select, special people on Earth who in turn, give that wisdom to lowly humans ... sometimes at a cost.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  That was one of the reasons why Blavatsky was considered a fraud by skeptics in her day ... she charged!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  But again we see the concept of a (figuratively) White Master Race in her writings which to be fair, probably referred to purity and not a race of humans with white skin.  Then along comes Houston Stewart Chamberlain who in 1899 wrote Die Grundlagen Des Neunzehnten Jahrhunderts ("The Foundations Of The Nineteenth Century") which in a pseudo-scientific manner, ascribed all of the great achievements in civilized history up until the 19th century as the work of the Aryan race.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Here comes the history lesson!

 "BLUE" JIMMY:  Originally, the term Aryan referred to speakers of Indo-European languages who were thought to form a branch of the Caucasian race.  By the late 19th, early 20th centuries, the term Aryan mutated to include the ancient Greeks, Romans, Celts, Germanic peoples and anyone else who had contributed greatly to Western Civilization.  Besides various academics at the Turn Of The Century who were indulging in "creative anthropology," there were the mystics such as Madam Blavatsky who maintained that the Aryan race originated in the mythical continent of Atlantis or some other antediluvian civilization.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  On the fringe!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  All this speculation was enticing to the eyes and ears of the citizens of post WW I Weimar Germany who were precursors to the American Beat Generation and the turned-on, Hippie Generation.  During this decadent era which lasted roughly, between 1919 - 1933, many German citizens were into spiritism, astrology, numerology, palm reading, vegetarianism, nudism, Yoga, meditation and many practices which would be familiar to anyone living in late 50's, 1960's America.


"BLUE" JIMMY:  Through a Romantic haze of  extreme liberated sexuality, (you don't want to know) and drugs which could seriously f**k up your good judgement, (ether, chloroform, cocaine, opium, morphine, heroin) the idea of  a pure, white, fairy tale race of humans made for good, stimulating conversations in the parlors and cabarets of Weimar Germany.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Tre's chic!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  But the burgeoning National Socialist movement (Nazis) in pre WWII Germany needed a mythos, a raison d' etre for their increasingly nationalistic and xenophobic frame of mind.  Amid severe economic crisis which was largely blamed on foreigners, the poor, the uneducated, the handicapped, homosexuals and various "mongrel races" who were not of pure "Nordic stock," the Nazi Party embraced the idea of a pure, proud, blonde-haired, blue-eyed, white-skinned German people who would make the country "great again."

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Why does that sound familiar?

"BLUE" JIMMY:  We all know what happened next, no need to bother you with nasty details.  The Allies eventually defeated Germany in World War II but as history will show, they did not defeat the Nazis.  Nazi war criminals of various stripe escaped to South America and the United States and if conspiracy theories are to be believed, with the help of the U.S. Government.  As I have written in previous articles, you may defeat a country in war but you cannot kill a philosophy.  Thus, to this day in the United States and Western World,  we have remnants of White Supremacy movements which refuse to die.  


"BLUE" JIMMY:  While writing this article, I came across a film released in the U.S. entitled, "Imperium" (2016) which stars Daniel Radcliffe of "Harry Potter" fame.  The title refers to a book written in 1948 by Francis Parker Yockey called "Imperium:  The Philosophy Of History And Politics" which with many other tomes, is used as a guidebook by many White Supremacists.
The film deals with an FBI agent who infiltrates White Supremacist groups to try to thwart a suspected terrorist attack in the United States. 

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Keep in mind that a significant amount of terrorist acts in the United States have been carried out by American White Supremacists and not foreigners.

 "BLUE" JIMMY:  The film shows how there is much dissent between White Supremacist groups although they still have much in common.  There are various offshoots of the KKK who stick staunchly to that Southern Confederate tradition, racist Skinheads who engage in street fights and have a whole music scene behind them to promote their racist ideology, hardcore Nazi holdouts who still display the swastika and greet each other with the Nazi salute and the words, "sieg heil" and pure academic racists who neither march or protest or brawl but churn out racist propaganda like "The Turner Diaries." 

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Dun, Dun, Dun!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  "The Turner Diaries" was a 1978 novel written by a certain Andrew Macdonald (nom de plume) whose real name was William Luther Pierce. 
The novel goes into great detail about how racist White folks take over The World by first overthrowing the United States Government which then leads to a race/nuclear war that allows them to create a pure, White planet that lives happily ever after.


"BLUE" JIMMY:  Amazingly, Pierce was not some computer/Internet geek living in his nana's basement but a full-blown professor of physics whose writings were taken very seriously by the National Alliance which he founded as well as legions of  contemporary White Supremacists who use mythology, The Bible, revisionist history, fanciful anthropology/archaeology, pseudoscience and barnyard genetics to advance their causes.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  "The more you explain it, the more I don't understand it." - Mark Twain

"BLUE" JIMMY:  In the United States,  the abolition of slavery, the tireless efforts of civil rights workers, the enactment of  civil rights laws and more than anything, naturally changed attitudes toward race and human relations have made White Supremacist theories seem antiquated. Yet, there are holdouts and there are those who try to advance the theory of White Genocide.
Proponents of this theory believe that there is a conspiracy to eliminate the White Race through mass immigration, race mixing, homosexuality, birth control and abortion. This is interesting to note in a psychological sense because it appears that White Supremacists have gone from a "We will conquer and rule the world" stance to a "Poor me" frame of mind in the span of just several decades.  I will leave that to the experts ... I'm just some f**king guy!  The lowdown is, hate groups still exist and the world seems all the worse for it.  What can be done? ...  Well, let's see ...
