The Truth behind Volksfront

Addressing who the Volksfront really are, in light of recent sympathetic postings by person(s) on indymedia. When will we ever learn?
"Our goal is freedom for our folk from Zionist manipulation and foreign influence."(1)

Main Entry: Zi·on·ism
Pronunciation: 'zI-&-"ni-z&m
Function: noun
Date: 1896
: an international movement orig. for the establishment of a Jewish national or religious community in Palestine and later for the support of modern Israel

One might be confused at their inclusion of "Zionist manipulation" [sic] in their pure vision: "The reality of our organization is that we care about our own people first and foremost, we have neither love nor hate for other cultures."

Quite clearly, the term "Zionist" as quoted from their website refers to Jews, but they are able to confuse a lot of people if they don't keep their terms on the same level as ours. Freedom from Zionist manipulation? What in the hell are these crazies talking about? The logical link is the long-discredited Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, a fabrication which has been used for propaganda against the Jewish people for hundreds of years.

To be against American pluralistic society, as this group quite clearly is, is an attack on ALL cultures. These are racists, and scum besides because they won't even call themselves what they are.

"The media loves to portray us as 'terrorists', 'neo-nazis', 'skinheads' and 'hate-mongers'."(1)

"  In a decade filled with violent death, the murder of Mulugeta Seraw was one of the most horrifying.

Seraw, 27, was one of three Ethiopian students standing on Southeast 31st Avenue and Pine Street in the early morning hours of Nov. 13, 1988, when they were confronted by a knot of racist skinheads.

The skinheads attacked, using a baseball bat to bludgeon Seraw's skull as he lay prone on the pavement and vomited into a growing pool of his own blood. He was pronounced dead a few hours later in the Emanuel Hospital emergency room. The skinheads, Kenneth Murray Mieske, 23, Kyle Hayden Brewster, 20, and Steven Rodney Strasser, 19, were arrested and charged with murder."(2)

"The Volksfront Pow Affairs Department is dedicated to assisting those incarcerated for political crimes or those incarcerated for actions in service or defense of European-Americans. We do [I think they left a 'not' out here] condone the actions of all those listed, yet we understand their motivations were the defense of our people, culture, and nation."(1)

Guess who's on the POW list! Yep, Kenneth Mieske, sure enough. That's pretty much enough to say skinhead and hate-monger loudly and clearly.

But then again, I'm Jewish... so I'm just part of the plot!
