Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 29, 2018

The California man accused of killing a 19-year-old University of Pennsylvania student earlier this month is an avowed neo-Nazi and a member of one of the most notorious extremist groups in the country, according to three people with knowledge of the man's recent activities. The man, Samuel Woodward, has been charged in Orange County, California, with murdering Blaze Bernstein, who went missing in early January while visiting his family over winter break. ... Orange County prosecutors say they are examining the possibility that the killing was a hate crime -- Bernstein was Jewish and openly gay -- and some recent news reports have suggested that the alleged killer might hold far-right or even white supremacist political beliefs. Now, three people with detailed knowledge of Woodward's recent past have been able to shed more light on the young man's extremist activities.

They said Woodward was a member of the Atomwaffen Division, an armed Fascist group with the ultimate aim of overthrowing the U.S. government through the use of terrorism and guerrilla warfare. ...

Woodward joined the organization in early 2016 and later traveled to Texas to attend Atomwaffen meetings and a three-day training camp, which involved instruction in firearms, hand-to-hand combat, camping and survival skills, the former member said. ProPublica has obtained photographs of Woodward at an outdoor Atomwaffen meeting in the scrubby Texas countryside. One of the photos depicts Woodward and other members making straight-armed Nazi salutes while wearing skull masks. In other pictures, Woodward is unmasked and easily identifiable.

If you join a group with those as stated goals, deportation should be automatic.

I blame Antifa.

If everyone would just ignore these fools they wouldn't harm a flea. Not even gay Jewish fleas.

Ah yes, Orange county. Of course. Plenty of that crap around here, although mostly Huntington Beach.
