The Neo-Nazi Meltdown Continues

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to write about my favorite whipping boys, the neo-Nazis. To be truthful, there hasn’t been a whole lot to say of late, but some recent events serve to illustrate how the people in this movement are incapable of even maintaining small organizational structures, let alone leading the white masses into revolution. First came the news that David Gletty, an influential member of the National Socialist Movement (NSM) from Florida has in fact been working for FBI as an informant for the last several years, having collected over $200,000 in taxpayer money during that time. The reveling of Gletty’s true allegiance of course only begs the question of how many other informants are currently active in the groups’ ranks. This is just one more hit for the NSM, a group that has gone from being a serious contender for the title of the most effective white power group in the U.S. to being something of a laughingstock. It’s also worth noting that the city government of Orlando was not happy at finding out that Gletty is a government employee, as last year he led a NSM march through the city that cost the town quite a bit of money in security expenses.

One group the NSM will not have to worry about as far as future competition goes is National Vanguard (NV), which officially packed it in last week. The now-defunct group’s webpage states that: “We regret to inform you that National Vanguard (the organization) has been shut down by the Commonwealth of Virginia”. (?) Inside sources suggest that the NV’s inability to get their publishing projects done on time as well as the arrest of the group’s founder Kevin Strom were factors in the group’s demise. Some NV members have started an even smaller web-based organization called European Americans United (catchy name, guys). NV was considered to be one of the most promising splinter groups to break off from the once great National Alliance, and it’s loss makes it less likely that anything approaching a professional National Socialist organization will emerge in the U.S. any time soon.
