The news is out: [Frank Meeink, a former neo-Nazi who inspired the 1998 film American History X, is making people take a second look at the police. In an interview with The Daily Beast he alleged that white supremacists he formerly knew, are now cops.
Meeink opened up about his experience with “ghost skins,” a practice white supremacists use to hide “overt displays of their beliefs to blend in” with the general public. According to Meeink, nationalist leaders with ties to law enforcement would often vet members of the neo-Nazi group he was affiliated with in the 80s and 90s, and some of his former associates are now policemen.
“I know that there are neo-Nazis who I used to run with who are now cops,” Meeink said. “And that’s just in my crew. Imagine how many neo-Nazis and white nationalists have been becoming cops? Three of the people in my crew alone became cops.”
Meeink said nationalist leaders and high-ranking members of the Ku Klux Klan like David Duke would encourage young people within the organization to join the police force, and Meeink recalled one rally in the 90s when they were told to “cover up our swastikas, grow our hair out, and become cops.”
“I know of at least three of the people at that meeting who became cops,” he said.
Meeink claimed the purpose of neo-Nazis and other white supremacist hate groups joining the police force was primarily to disenfranchise people of color—Black people especially—by targeting them specifically during arrests and placing heavy charges on them that could potentially affect their rights.
“The Fourth Amendment is violated all the time by the cops, and in these meetings, they would say, ‘Yeah—and when we become cops we’ll get them on felonies so they can’t vote.’ That constantly went around,” Meeink said. “We need to get all these white nationalists out of the police force. There are so many racist cops. And I know a lot of cops.”]
Anyone can see, like pedophiles to the priesthood, jackbooted neo-Nazi confederate skinhead terrorist supremacist Neanderthals flocked to the police force. I am right again.
