Posted: 21 Mar 2020 03:05 PM PDT. “[A] gripping study of white power…It is impossible to read the book without recalling more recent events…The book’s explosive thesis: that the white power movement that reached a culmination with the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing emerged as a radical reaction to the [Vietnam] war…It is a breathtaking argument, one that treats foreign policy as the impetus for a movement that most people view through the lens of domestic racism…It’s a stunning indictment of official culpability, and Belew constructs her case with forensic care. In doing so, she shows that, while racism is ever with us, policy choices ranging from local police strategies to the furthest reaches of foreign policy create the space for white power to flourish. ” ― Nicole Hemmer, New York Times “Compelling…Meticulously researched and powerfully argued, Belew’s book isn’t only a definitive history of white-racist violence in late-20th-century America, but also a rigorous meditation on the relationship between American militarism abroad and extremism at home… Bring the War Home is a grim and sobering read―and, for many, it may arrive as a much-needed and troubling revelation: The sheer size of white-power extremism since Vietnam is frightening…The power of Belew’s book comes, in part, from the fact that it reveals a story about white-racist violence that we should all already know. ” ― Patrick Blanchfield, The Nation “[Belew] presents a gorgeously rendered account of the white power movement in this country that reveals its symbiotic character, one that both feeds on mainstream angst and stimulates it to new heights. ” ― Robert L. Tsai, Los Angeles Review of Books “This is a work of fierce intelligence. In a breathtaking and wholly convincing manner, Belew shows how white power activists used their view of the Vietnam War to advance every element of their reactionary agenda and to justify domestic terrorism. A book of signal importance and urgency, it provides a haunting vantage point on contemporary American political culture. ” ― Nancy MacLean, author of Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America “Fascinating…Belew connects seemingly disparate events like the killings at Greensboro, the persecution of Vietnamese fishers in Texas in the early 1980s, and the siege at Ruby Ridge. She shows how hatred of the federal government, fears of communism, and racism all combined in white-power ideology and explains why our responses to the movement have long been woefully inadequate. ” ― Rebecca Onion, Slate “Superbly comprehensive…supplants all journalistic accounts of America’s resurgent white supremacism. ” ― Pankaj Mishra, The Guardian “Kathleen Belew’s vital new book begins in the belly of a Huey helicopter somewhere over South Vietnam. From there she follows with unflinching honesty the violence that violence begat, from the tiny cadre of veterans who decided to bring the war home through Ruby Ridge and Waco to the horror of the Oklahoma City terrorist attack. Over the years I’ve read any number of exemplary histories. Never have I read a more courageous one. ” ― Kevin Boyle, author of Arc of Justice: A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age “ Bring the War Home is a tour de force. An utterly engrossing and piercingly argued history that tracks how the seismic aftershocks of the Vietnam War gave rise to a white power movement whose toxic admixture of violent bigotry, antigovernmental hostility, and racial terrorism helped set the stage for Waco, the Oklahoma City bombing, and, yes, the presidency of Donald Trump. ” ― Junot Díaz “This is a troubling book for many reasons, not just because of the scope of the white power network it reveals, though that is both disturbing and an important corrective to the insistence that white terrorists are ‘lone wolves’ who act spontaneously and independently of one another…[It] raises questions about how the elements of United States culture that valorize violence and draw ready distinctions between the deserving ‘us’ and the less deserving ‘them’ (or between people and animals, to use an even more recent variation on the theme) contribute to mass shootings…Belew treats the trajectory of white power victimhood as a shift from attacks on the other to a declaration of war against the federal government. It appears, in that sense, to be a rejection of the constitutional order. ” ― Elizabeth Dale, Jotwell “Alarming and meticulously researched. ” ― Wajahat Ali, NYR Daily.

The modern white power movement is much more than a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan. It emerged in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, and drew support from veterans and even active-duty service members. That provocative finding comes from a new book, “Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America, ” by Kathleen Belew, a historian at the University of Chicago. She spoke with Sewell Chan about her research. How did you first become interested in the white power movement? I was interested in the truth and reconciliation commission that examined the 1979 massacre in Greensboro, N. C., where a group of Klan members and neo-Nazi gunmen killed five leftist protesters. Perpetrators said things like, “Well, I killed communists in Vietnam, why wouldn’t I kill communists in North Carolina? ” When I started to review records of other white power activists, I found an entire social movement animated by this idea. White supremacy has been around for centuries. Why, in your view, was the Vietnam War so significant? The Vietnam War created an opportunity for people and groups who had previously been at odds to unite in a common cause. And it provided a narrative — betrayal by the state — that structured the movement. The magnitude of military technologies available in that war — land mines, C-4 plastic explosives, anti-tank rockets, and AR-15s and M-16s — escalated the violent capacity of the movement, and the death toll. How has the white power activism since the 1970s differed from its predecessors? Although it drew on previous Klan mobilizations, it united groups that hadn’t aligned before: Klansmen, neo-Nazis, radical tax protesters, skinheads. It was also revolutionary, in its relationship with the government. Earlier mobilizations — particularly the best-known and largest wave of Klan activity in the 1920s — had been vigilante organizations; that is, they had worked to support the state. Think of the famous image of Klansmen marching on the Mall in Washington — in robes and hoods, but with their faces visible. The ’20s Klan was very mainstream, and was aligned with all kinds of above-board politics. The white power movement, on the other hand, declared war on the state in 1983. Its activists openly carried out violent actions aimed at infrastructure, currency and federal employees, and they did this to foment a guerrilla race war meant to overthrow the government. What was the outcome of that self-declared war? The war on the state led, most notably, to the 1995 bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building, which killed 168 people, 19 young children among them. Along the way, white power activists also carried out assassinations, attacked infrastructure targets, formed and acted in leaderless resistance cells, attempted to undermine federal currency and stole military weapons from posts and armories. Then what happened? The bombing generated a brief moment of public concern, but its legacy has been overwhelmingly one of misunderstanding. Even though it represents the largest deliberate mass casualty on American soil between Pearl Harbor and 9/11, most Americans don’t think of it as part of a long social movement, and as ideologically motivated. This is partly because the F. B. I. changed its approach after an earlier trial of 13 white power activists on charges including seditious conspiracy in 1987-88, in Fort Smith, Ark. The activists were acquitted despite overwhelming evidence. After that, the F. decided that white power violence would be prosecuted only at the scale of individual actions, rather than attempting to portray them as part of a social movement. Who are some of the key figures in the post-Vietnam War movement? Louis Beam was an architect of the movement, and furthered the idea of “leaderless resistance” — what we would now think of as cell-style terrorism — as well as pioneering Liberty Net, encrypted message boards that the white power movement started using by 1984, decades before Facebook. Robert Jay Mathews was the leader of The Order, a highly skilled white terrorist group that carried out major armed robberies and assassinations, including the 1984 assassination of a Jewish talk show host in Denver. He died after a firefight with F. agents later that year, and is seen as a martyr for the movement. David Lane was a member of The Order who while imprisoned wrote a slogan called the “Fourteen Words, ” which has become a rallying cry and code of the movement. The words — “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children” — have been used to justify violence. Frazier Glenn Miller (Frazier Glenn Cross) re-entered the news when he shot and killed three people in Overland Park, Kan., in 2014. A Vietnam veteran, he took part in the Greensboro massacre (but was never charged) and led the White Patriot Party in North Carolina, which acquired stolen weapons and matériel from Fort Bragg in the early 1980s. Don Black, the founder of Stormfront — one of the most prominent white-power websites in the 1990s — appears in my book through his earlier movement activity, including an attempt to invade the Caribbean island of Dominica in order to funnel money to the Klan in the United States. What are the biggest misconceptions about the white power movement? The idea of “leaderless resistance” — intended to prevent infiltration by government operatives and prosecutions — allowed white power to sort of disappear as a movement. White power violence has too often been described as the disconnected acts of lone wolves or madmen, and this is precisely because people — the public, prosecutors, jurors, the government — haven’t understood it as a connected and coherent social movement. Relatedly, people often think of those involved in organized racist violence as uneducated, backward, or part of one class or regional identity. This is a misconception that really distorts the movement I study, which included people from all class backgrounds, from all regions of the country, from cities and rural areas alike. It also included rich people and poor people; high school dropouts and people with advanced degrees; religious leaders, along with felons; men, women, and children. How would you characterize the white power movement today? Has it been emboldened by the Trump administration? I should underline that I’m a historian, and my expertise ends in 1995. The kind of research I do won’t even be possible to pursue about our current moment for another five or ten years, because the archive simply hasn’t been compiled yet. But history shows that having an executive seen as sympathetic to the movement has not, in the past, worked to appease white-power activists or curb violence. The fact that the movement last turned violent during the Reagan administration — and at a moment of seeming state support for many of its goals — underlines the fact that this ideology was not aimed at electoral change. Is the movement more, or less, powerful than it was in the mid-1990s, the endpoint of your study? It’s difficult to say. Certainly we know from watchdog organizations that hate crimes and hate group memberships are rising. And certainly these ideas have entered the mainstream in new ways. I think the archives teach us that there has never been an effective stop delivered to this movement. The criminal prosecutions have been ineffective, there hasn’t been a turn in public opinion, and white power activity has been very effective at going underground, reforming and resurging. Racial Disparities in Marijauna Arrests Across New York City, black people are arrested on low-level marijuana charges at eight times the rate — and Hispanics, five times the rate — of white people. But the gap in arrests is only part of the problem, says Benjamin Mueller, who examined these discrepancies. He writes: Getting handcuffed is only the first step in a path for arrestees that winds its way through holding cells in police station houses and eventually courtrooms. The process can take months. And racial disparities have seeped into every layer of the criminal justice system. One study, dating from when the police arrested many more people on marijuana charges, found that black and Hispanic arrestees were more likely than their white counterparts to be detained before arraignment, convicted on the charges and sentenced to jail. Even today, defense lawyers say prosecutors are more likely to decline to prosecute marijuana cases against white people than against black people. When I watched arraignments in Brooklyn one morning, the defendants facing marijuana charges who hired private lawyers got to go before the judge first, while those with public defense lawyers — almost all of them black — sat in the courtroom pews for hours. The top prosecutors in Manhattan and Brooklyn have said they will stop prosecuting many marijuana cases, but appear likely to carve out exceptions for some people with criminal records. Police officials have backed off defending some marijuana arrests, but suggested they still want to go after people with criminal records. And those policies, too, could fall hardest on people living in mostly black neighborhoods, since they have faced decades of aggressive policing of minor offenses and are more likely to have records.

(Image: SUNY Press) With the United Kingdom’s Brexit vote to leave the European Union and the rise of Donald Trump as president of the United States, the white backlash against identity politics and immigration have thrust fringe movements into the mainstream of power. Reams of op-eds have appeared in newspapers in the US and Europe in the struggle to make sense of how extreme racist and nativist platforms, once sidelined to the fringe, have morphed into mainstream politics. The impact of the white supremacist movement upon mainstream music has normally been relegated to fringe academic critiques. Its role in the steady rise of the right and importance in the change of Western society is thoroughly explored in Nancy Love’s 2016 book Trendy Fascism. Love argues that the importance of music within the broader white supremacist movement has not been properly examined. She demonstrates how music affects, attracts and transitions young listeners to adopt more overtly violent right-wing beliefs. As Love suggests, the movements that have their origins at the turn of the 20th century have effectively weaponized elements of the music industry. As it becomes more apparent, Love emphasizes just how “effective” these methods have become. While Love’s book displays the rigor of serious research, her prose permits those of us who may not be as familiar with the theorists she cites to fully appreciate her thesis. Love’s exhaustive critique takes the reader from how the white supremacist is mobilizing music through avenues of “hate” to the lyrical depictions of an imagined “white nation. ” The contextual analysis of the “white supremacist” music scene from Europe to the United States is a critical chapter in her book, and an excellent introduction to the social landscape of those who feel forgotten and oppressed as a “white working class. ” More foreboding, savvy right-wing opportunists who know what is working and what sells have supercharged the politics of hate. Love positions “hate music as an extreme form that illuminates the white supremacist norm. ” There is little doubt that music and lyrics are being consciously produced to attract the young with what Love cites as the “epistemology of ignorance” — a powerful descriptor of how the music is a powerful tool to attract the youth beyond text. Love explains, “In the modern, secular West, white supremacists have continued to use religion to shape group identity, guide political actions, and build racial solidarity. ” Love takes the reader into the “racial world” of the World Church of the Creator, also known as “Creativity. ” Founded by Ben Klassen, the Church of the Creator mimics traditional religions by incorporating the Bible, ritual song, symbol and even tax-exempt status, but rejects belief in the supernatural, or what Klassen calls, “spooks in the sky. ” Through the emotional power of musical genres such as, heavy metal, Goth and electronica, the beliefs of the white supremacist movement were spread by such labels as Resistance Records. Resistance records, once the major distributor of white power music in the United States, was founded by the Canadian leader of Creativity, George Burdi. Burdi used his band, Racial Holy War (RaHoWa), a Goth metal band, to convey the message of Creativity through its music. Love connects the dots between the World Church of the Creator and music when she writes “Burdi, who understands the emotional power of RaHoWa’s music to mobilize followers … explicitly affirms and invokes the anger, hatred, and violence toward racialized Others that fuels white supremacist violence. ” What I found most intriguing was Love’s deconstruction within the white supremacist music scene in which she identifies and elucidates song lyrics. Love exposes the insidious exploitation of folk music in the United States by neo-Nazi groups. “With its neo-Nazi folk genre, the white power movement joins, co-opts, and shifts the long-standing social reformist tradition of folk and protest music in America. It embraces folk music as a racially pure expression of white culture. ” In the United Kingdom in the early 1970s, the London skinhead movement started to split into racist and non-racist factions, with the former exhibiting their racism by attacking South Asian immigrants on the streets of South London. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, “Fueling these attacks and cementing the new racist skinhead identity was increasing association with two neo-fascist political parties, the National Front and the British Movement. ” The UK witnessed the racist faction of the skinheads and the National Front marching on the streets in South London in the 1970s and early 1980s. In “ The soundtrack of neo-fascism: youth and music in the National Front, ” Ryan Shaffer writes how in reaction to challenges from the Anti-Nazi League and Rock Against Racism, the National Front developed its own youth outreach programs that transformed neo-fascism and how neo-fascists distributed their message. In adopting skinhead style and music, the organization spread “nativist” culture not only to gain supporters, but to counter multiculturalism in popular music and politics. By examining the white supremacist violence that plagued the late 20th century, we can visualize the genesis of this transnational co-opting of a music movement. Love may wish to review further the political zeitgeist that led to the formation of the National Front. The open clash between the Conservative government of Margaret Thatcher with labor unions and the working class opened up an irrevocable fissure. That crucial context helps to situate the class warfare that marked the 1970s and 1980s between the Tories and the Labour Party. Unemployment in Britain reached over 3 million people by 1982. Hell was unleashed and the music of the age turned from rock to punk. Groups such as the Clash and The Sex Pistols took off during this period. The beginnings of white supremacist music — if one believes it was birthed by artists like Ian Stuart Donaldson — has a uniquely English context within this social and political confrontation. Love devotes considerable space to Donaldson’s musical influence and its pulsating ability to recruit skinheads in England. Skrewdriver’s music, the band formed by Donaldson, helped start the skinhead movement in Europe, and later the United States. As Love writes, T. J. Leyden, a former neo-Nazi skinhead, credits Donaldson with “getting the skinhead movement going in Europe and bring[ing] it to the United States…. [Skrewdriver’s music] had a hard-hitting, addictive beat. Usually once I gave some kids this free music, they wanted more. ” As Love indicates, it was the punk genre that helped to influence the music (though not the lyrics of white power) of the rebellion against the Anti-Nazi League and Rock Against Racism and by proxy, the anti-immigration and anti-establishment National Front. Conservative MP Enoch Powell’s now-infamous tirade against the changing social landscape in the 1960s played upon nativist fears of the period. In his “Rivers of Blood” speech, Powell framed his racism as so many had before him: as a premonition. His words became a warning of an inevitable civil conflict if immigrants were allowed to “dilute” English culture. Enoch’s message, as with many white supremacist tropes, strongly indicated that only a preemptive race war could save England from itself. Love’s examination of white supremacy in Western liberalism is an intrinsic part of her book. This is a complex issue. Love explains how Western liberalism situates a default position for white supremacists, in direct relation to Indigenous peoples and others. One can appreciate how Love teased out this point to clarify the irony embedded in Western liberalism: The political hypocrisy of revolutions in the United States and France that effectually benefited their white male citizens alone. These social movements, for better or worse, only afforded white men the inalienable rights all classes and races of society had fought to earn. In the United States, the Declaration of Independence serves as “Exhibit A” for this overtly hypocritical stance. White male privilege was expressly embedded in the Declaration of Independence to dehumanize both African slaves and Indigenous people as “savage warlike Indians. ” In summation, Western liberalism should not be shocked that extremely undemocratic traits define and partly inform their historical liberalism. As Love states, “the challenge is to create the awareness among committed liberal democrats that this right-wing cultural politics is an unacknowledged aspect of their political history and national identity. In the presence of such systematic racism, why assume that fugitive movements or youthful swarms will mobilize on behalf of democratic ideals? ” By the time white supremacist music fully developed in the UK, it merely had to be re-tailored to a Southern US audience. As Love reveals, the music that formed the battle cry of the far-right fringe in the UK still played upon the same platitudes once popular within the United States. In revealing the transnational influence of white-power musicians, Love decodes the changed band names and lyrics to suit a given national audience. “Nazi references also occur in songs by The Klansmen, Ian Stuart’s second band, which targeted audiences in the American South. However, The Klansmen replace allusions to Camelot, Valhalla, and Norse Gods — all of which played well in Britain — with different racial heroes, such as Confederate soldiers…. ” In addition to Ian Stuart Donaldson’s influence, which Love documents, contemporary examples abound. For instance, the band Changes, a US folk band, has adopted mainstream sounds to occupy gray spaces between popular folk music while also embedding a white power undertone. Unlike Donaldson’s band The Klansman, the band Changes, formed in 1969, avoided the traditional white power motifs of Southern Confederacy or Christianity to instead mix up their music with more traditional anti-fascist gatherings normally occupied by the anti-capitalist spaces. To camouflage their white power message, Anti-Fascist News reports “the growing white ultra-right sphere looks more like a rainbow gathering rather than a Klan rally. ” Despite Changes’ links to “alt-right” associations, Anti-Fascist News asks, “why is it that Changes continues to appear in folk music circles where left-wing politics tend to dominate? Well this has happened by general intent in Changes where they intend to play on the obscurity of many references and outright lying about associations. ” Whether punk or folk, whether targeting traditional Southern Confederate history, Christianity or Euro-German Heathenism, the music is deployed to evoke white power. Specifically, in the case of Changes, the idea is to blend in with folk spheres to help normalize obscured messages — messages designed to confuse anti-fascists and to mainstream white power. Love is quite right in stating that both white supremacists and liberals are “playing with hate. ” Whether the former wear their hate as a badge of group identity or the latter mask their embedded hatred, ultimately, white supremacists continue to occupy spaces of support and denial in Western liberalism. Love does a brilliant job of illuminating this point. Love’s book is timely and an important work to make sense of how today’s fascists have made significant use of song and lyric to attract youth. Let us not mince words: The subtext that seems embedded throughout Trendy Fascism is alarmingly apparent that the white supremacist movement, now more present than ever, has not only acculturated the very music our children listen to; it is indoctrinating our children right under our ever-doubtful noses.

Image copyright MSNBC Image caption The unnamed team member was seen sitting in the background as MSNBC interviewed the Coast Guard commanding officer The US Coast Guard has removed a team member from duty after he was accused of making a "white power" sign on air. The unidentified employee was seen glancing at the camera during an MSNBC interview on Friday night before briefly making the hand gesture. He was at a desk in the background as the cable channel spoke to Coast Guard Commanding Officer Capt John Reed in Charleston, South Carolina. The agency responded swiftly to the ensuing social media backlash. The incident occurred as MSNBC covered the emergency response to deadly tropical storm Florence, which is drenching the Carolinas. "Whatever that symbol means, it doesn't reflect the Coast Guard and our core values, " Coast Guard Lt JB Zorn told NBC News. "It won't be tolerated. " The Coast Guard tweeted that it was aware of the "offensive video" and was investigating the matter. In a statement, the agency said it was a "frustrating distraction". A number of Twitter commentators were in no doubt about the nature of the momentary hand gesture. One user, @jgobble, tweeted: "Did you all see this guy flash White Power on TV? OUR OWN COAST GUARD!!! This needs to be investigated and this man needs to be ousted/removed/discharged! " Another, @OKCopyThat, posted: "That was flat out blatant! Lord have mercy on us. These evil people are among us. " Yet another, @TomAmestoy, tweeted: "The Coast Guard is filled with heroes and apparently at least one racist bringing shame on an honorable crew. " But not everyone was convinced. One Twitter user, @Dpatcorb, said: "Bahahahahaha. You seriously have the mental capacity of a 2 year old if you think that's a white power sign. " AFP Former Trump administration official Zina Bash (L) was accused of making the 'white power' symbol (not pictured) during a Senate hearing this month It is not clear how the thumb-and-forefinger 'OK' hand gesture became associated with "white power". It apparently began as an online hoax before it was adopted by far-right sympathisers and even some Trump supporters to goad liberals. Earlier this month, left-wing activists accused a former Trump administration official of making the symbol during a Senate hearing. Zina Bash was pictured sitting in the background during a confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Ms Bash, who is of Jewish-Mexican heritage, was branded a "neo-Nazi" or "white supremacist". Her husband, Texas prosecutor John Bash, angrily pointed out his wife is the grandchild of Holocaust survivors. "Everyone tweeting this vicious conspiracy theory should be ashamed of themselves, " he said. "We weren't even familiar with the hateful symbol being attributed to her for the random way she rested her hand during a long hearing. ".
Start your review of Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America
I remember reading a passage in The Clinton Tapes: Wrestling History with the President by Taylor Branch where he describes the behind-the-scenes befuddlement of Clinton (and others close to him) after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995; they couldnt generate any willingness by Republican lawmakers to investigate violent, anti-government extremists. Even with blood in the streets, conservative lawmakers were instead committed to rallying behind the..
Terrifying book on the rise and unification of white power groups after the Vietnam War. The book covers a period from about the time of the end of Vietnam War to the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. During the supposedly color-blind post-civil rights era a cohort of vets with racist ideology brought their training from the battlefields in Vietnam and applied them to bringing race war back home. Starting with a conflict between locals and Vietnamese refugees in fishing communities on the Texas..
Page 106 (my book) President Reagans inaugural address 1981 In this present crisis government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem. Page 104 In 1983 the white power movement declared war on the state... white power activists now fought for a white homeland, attempted to destabilize the federal government, and waged revolutionary race war. This book is about the rise of radical right wing groups (meaning white supremacists for the most part) in the United States. Up until the..
So I've been reading a lot of books about the rise of white power groups and this was my favorite because it was a solid and serious historic book as opposed to just a journalist interviewing these groups or a memoir. The book was excellent and I could talk about just this book all day, but I want to do something different and do a double review. I like to read several books at a time and it just so happened that I read the Looming Tower (about Al Qaeda) by Lawrence Wright at the same time as I..
Bring the War Home makes deeply disturbing reading. From the violent harassment of Vietnamese refugees in Texas to the Oklahoma City bombing, Kathleen Belew traces the increasing militarization of the white power movement back to the aftermath of the Vietnam War, when returning military personnel brought home the expertise they had developed in handling weapons and explosives and then used those skills in the service of racist ideology and a war against the U. S. government. Murder, armed robbery,..
One of the best books ever written on the white power movement, essential for understanding how it crystalized into lone-wolf terror. A must read.
Recently I was watching a Frontline episode on hate groups emerging from the shadows and heard the author of this book mention that there was a marked increase in these groups after every major war so I decided to check out the book. Have to admit I was a bit disappointed but that was probably more about my expectations than the book itself. I was hoping for a more comprehensive look at this trend but found the author spending the majority of the book discussing the post-Vietnam time frame. The..
Belew has written an important and groundbreaking history of the post-Vietnam white power movement. Her account differs from earlier studies because of its attention to the imperial dimensions of pot-Vietnam white power's imaginary and scope, as well as the central role of the US war in Vietnam in remapping how white supremacists understood the state, revolutionary violence, and whiteness. Equally important is how Belew historicizes the figure of the Lone Wolf in a deliberate strategy of..
4. 5/5. This is an important work. And an alarming one. Highly recommended. We are sleep-walking through a prolonged campaign by the white power movement since the 1970's (roots go back much further) that largely operates at the fringes but occasionally, and quite violently, makes its presence felt. The seemingly unnatural amalgamation of long-standing racist, anti-communist groups like the various iterations/factions of the KKK (KKKK, CKKKK, etc) with neo-Nazi's and skinheads and tax evaders and..
In some ways this book covers the same ground as other books on this particular branch of the far right by such as authors as Leonard Zeskind, Daniel Levitas, Matthew Lyons, and Chip Berlet. What's different about Belew's account is the tight focus on the role of mythology of the Vietnam war in the foundations of the militant wing of the white supremacist right and the conciseness of her survey that covers the racist militant right in different locations from the 1970s through the Oklahoma City..
Goddamn - this was good. Exceptionally well-researched and well-organized in its examination of the white separatist movement from Vietnam through the Oklahoma City bombing. This book really helped me understand the foundation of the alt-right and shed a ton of light on the methods and rhetoric used by white supremacists to operate as leaderless clandestine cells in America today. There are some truly stomach-turning sections in this book but it's worth reading if you want to better arm yourself..
An urgent new book about the modern white power movement that reframes much of our understanding about racism, paramilitary violence, and the far right. Belew argues that the Vietnam War sparked the formation of a new white power movement that eventually drew in a revived Klan, neo-Nazis, skinheads, radical anti-tax protestors, a variety of conspiracy theorists and militiamen. The Vietnam War created a narrative in which soldiers felt betrayed by a country that "made them fight with one hand..
Part 1, chapter 4: Ronald Reagan was subcontracting foreign policy to white power militias. This is worth remembering when both Democrats and Republicans claim that Donald Trump represents some unspeakable degradation of what came before. This book shows that much that we have come to think of as features of a new or resurgent far right movement go back at least a few decades.
Cons (minor): - A bit dry and repetitive in places Pros (major): - Timely - Chilling - Dazzlingly well-researched The killer paragraph, from the epilogue: What was left unfinished, unexplained, and unconfronted about white power meant that it could resurge in the years following 1995. White power should have been legible as a coherent social movement but was instead largely narrated and prosecuted as scattered actions and inexplicable lone wolf attacks motivated not by ideology but by madness or..
This book was by turns depressing, frustrating, and scary. It focuses on the rise of the white power movement (and paramilitary culture) after the Vietnam war. I guess we all found out that this mindset is depressingly common during the 2016 election but she traces various threads that all knitted together. Also recounts the absolute lack of punishment the men (almost exclusively men, although the support roles played by women are also covered) got. Definitely reinforces that the militarization..
Kathleen Bellews [Bring the War Home] is the story of the rise of the modern white power movement. Although some groups had existed for much of American history, these groups and newer ones capitalized on the disappointment and distrust resulting from the aftermath of the Vietnam War. As time progressed the movement gained in strength and numbers and committed acts of violence and gradually gained the attention of law enforcement. However, the movement did not come under significant media and..
I often think my opinion of the US Criminal Justice System cant get lower. Then I read a book like this that examines the history of white power groups and how they benefited from our failed system. I also didnt realize an entire chapter was devoted to the Greensboro Massacre and as a non-native Greensboro resident that was interesting and depressing history to learn more about...
What a bunch of dangerous and violent yahoos.
This is a fantastically well researched book on a topic that isn't as well recognized as it, perhaps, should be. The topic is the white power movement and it's influence on American politics. Starting with the Vietnam war, Belew takes us on a tour of the white power movement, how and where it recruits, why it started and why it's still a threat. Her main thesis is that the movement is larger and more cohesive than many people realize. She shows how effective the internet is as a recruitment tool..
This is an important book. To me, the most important takeaway is that the leaderless structure of the violent white power movement succeeded in obscuring its nature as a movement. In 2019, we talk about "lone wolf" violence and rarely look beyond single shooters to the networks of which they are a part. Perhaps the Web makes this even harder, because now someone can be connected with and radicalized by the white power movement without ever meeting a single movement member or leader, without..
Fascinating book which tells the story of the white power movement in the USA mainly during the period from the end of Vietnam War until the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. What it reveals is a coherent white power movement which operated with a clear ideology & modus operandi. The movement which ran under many names was linked in often by long term activists popping up in various guises. These links were often literally familial as a result of marriage. It shows how inadequately the..
An excellent history of the revolutionary white power movement in the United States, from its origins in the 1970s in the aftermath of the Vietnam debacle to its climax with the OKC bombing in 1995. Provides great insight into the social and political worldview of an odious and fringe but hardly unimportant movement in American political life. Particularly deft in drawing the connections to the much broader New Right politics, while also clearly delineating where the White Power movement went..
Bring the War Home, by Kathleen Belew, is a must read for anyone seeking a deep understanding of our current political climate. It traces the white power movement from years immediately following the Vietnam War to the aftermath of the bombing in Oklahoma City. Meticulously researched (the author is a historian in the College at the University of Chicago), it is balanced, scholarly and a fascinating read. I commend it especially to historians, journalists, political scientists--and anyone..
Highly recommended to anyone wanting to understand the foundation on which the modern "alt-right, " and general fascist resurgence, is built upon. Written by a historian of the white power movement, Kathleen Belew writes clearly and persuasively of the links between state violence (war in particular) and increased para-militarism, how more mainstream racist ideas feed into and protect violent racist movements, and how understanding the movement's history is crucial to heading off future violence.
A disturbing but important and very thorough account of recent history that too few people are aware of, and which I suspect many people would rather not know about. If you think that the KKK died out or faded away in the 1970s, this book documents very clearly that they are still very active in our society.
Powerfully documents the white power-paramilitary movement in the US from the Vietnam era to the present. Very readable, very important.
Very well written and extremely well researched. Powerful. insightful. It connects the dots to the various home grown terrorist events in white nationalism.
Belew sometimes strains to apply the lens of the Vietnam War to her subject (ie: white power groups in the late 1980s and early 1990s feared the gov was surveilling them with black Huey helicopters -> Huey helicopters were used in Vietnam = further evidence of the framework of the Vietnam War at play in the white power mindset). In that way, I didn't get the sense that the men in her book were necessarily bringing the war home as much as they were bring a war home. The much stronger argument..
the twisted ideology of the white power movement and the incompetence of federal authorities in dealing with the threat posed. Somehow it all leads in a straight line to Donald Trump.
