White supremacists have their own social networking site—and dozens of military personnel are members, reports Stars and Stripes. “I love and will do anything to keep our master race marching,” says the newsaxon.org profile of one user who says he’s served in Iraq and Kuwait. The Southern Poverty Law Center will present 40 such profiles to Congress today in an effort to convince the Pentagon to crack down.
A search for the “military” job category on newsaxon.org, which claims 7,906 total members, generated 130 results. Many openly list their base location or pictures in uniform alongside Nazi and Confederate art. Military regulations prohibit participation in supremacist organizations, but spokespeople gave conflicting answers on how such participation is identified and dealt with. In 2006, Congress called for clarification of the policies, but the Pentagon said it did not see the need.
