    A Virginia police sergeant has been suspended after his apparent affinity for a neo-pagan white nationalist group was exposed by local anti-fascist activists.

    Sgt. Robert Stamm, 36, was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday, according to a statement from the Virginia Division of Capitol Police, the law enforcement agency tasked with policing the state Capitol grounds in Richmond.

    The department said it was “made aware early Wednesday of a possible violation of division policy” by Stamm. A Virginia Capitol Police spokesman, Joe McKenna, wouldn’t elaborate on what policy Stamm may have violated but did say the decision to suspend him was made “after we discovered some social media posts this morning.”

    Early Wednesday morning, Richmond-area anti-fascist and anarchist activists tweeted links to a report they authored detailing Stamm’s history of making social media posts expressing an affinity for the Asatru Folk Assembly, a white nationalist organization listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.

    Why would they cave in from pressure coming from a group who hates all cops regardless of their views.

    Dear Abby,

    If a blackface-wearing governor and attorney general
    want Al Sharpton to eat them last,
    do they need to be innocent?
    Or do they just have to be less guilty than
    everyone else they throw overboard?

    (Asking for a couple of politicians
    I've been hearing about on the news).

    I checked a while back, and amazingly we aren't on their official public list (yet). I'm sure we're on some of their internal files somewhere though.

    Here is a HUGE problem: People just blindly buy into LABELS the Alt-Left invents.

    I am WHITE. Not a decision I made.

    I am PROUD of my COUNTRY. By definition I am a NATIONALIST.

    Put the two together and I am a Monster ?

    I call BS.

    American Nationalists were the norm not long ago. Black, White, Yellow, Brown, Red - we were joined together as ONE COUNTRY.

    No more Italian-Americans, no more Irish-Americans. No more African-Americans.

    Enough with the division.

    I yearn for a time when these HYPHENATED IDENTITIES are shamed.

    Because, yes, they are shameful.

    Did you read the article?

    Guy labeled himself.
    Gave himself the same label as guys who were convicted of trying to blow up black and jewish churches.
    You see how that might be divisive?
    That’s not nothing for Joe Schmo and it’s certainly an issue for someone who’s been given a badge and a gun.

    You’re not a monster until you openly associate yourself with groups touting master races(Norse gods? Really?) and attempting to elevate yourself above others simply based on skin tone and or religious beliefs.

    To quote Charles de Gaulle, "Patriotism is when love of your own people comes first; nationalism, when hate for people other than your own comes first." Considering he lived through the Dreyfus Affair, WW1, the Polish War of Independence, the Depression, WW2, Algeria, Vietnam, and Paris in 1968, I'm going to say he's a credible source.

    The one thing I dislike about SPLC is that they were taken over by hardcore white liberals years ago. The mission has so fundamentally changed that quite literally any group that isn't hard left is a hate group.

    I just browsed their “hate map” and they of course have some political motivation. That said, I was surprised to see black nationalist as a group alongside the muslim brotherhood, white nationalist and even jewish/christian groups(anti-muslim) all in MA/NH!

    Suffice to say, if you look deep enough in to the dark corners of any organized movement, there’s going to be extremists.

    Hey, let he without an Iron Cross tattooed on his body throw the first stone. He's just a white guy in a volkish group that is really, really into German military culture. Nothing to see here...

    Yet if he was black there would be no story at all. Anyone other than Straight white males can love their race, have racial pride or "stick together" or hate crackas/honkies/powders/wonderbreads. If I typed any other racial slurs would the forum censor it for me??? No matter where you go its ok to shit on whitey and we can't say anything back or RACISSS.

    But this is the problem. Let's say a group thinks the world will end soon and only white people are going to be saved. Is that a hate group or people exercising their free speech and religious beliefs no matter how daft I think it might be? Let's say there is one single person in the group who is quite obviously a racist, is it a hate group then? Exactly how many racists within a group constitute a hate group? Is it people or is it ideology? SPLC went off the rails and now uses some made up standard like the NY Times best seller list algorithm to define a hate group. It's the moving goal post problem using moral relativism to define what is moral or not. When you make up the rules as you go and point fingers then you better be prepared to get a finger back make the accuser the hate group which is where I think the SPLC is today, a left wing hate group.

    Actually, they were founded by rich liberals for a purpose. It just took awhile for the veil of legitimacy to get pulled back.

    I had similar surprise.

    Not about the presence of local groups.
    (Hell, SPLC probably had a basic goal
    to list at least a few groups in every state,
    regardless of how pernicious or harmless -
    just to claim that "the problem is everywhere").

    But I was surprised at the listing of some groups that
    I'd shallowly have assumed were fellow travelers in the radical Left.

    But it just hit me:

    If the SPLC truly is as morally bankrupt as one suspects,
    then their blacklisting of some radical groups
    may not imply that the other groups are bad per-se,
    but rather, that they are competitors with the SPLC goals.

    Is it too much to suggest that something was lost in translation ?

    Though I certainly don't hate other nations (generally), I am perfectly content to let them alone.

    Let them reap what they sow.
