|Der Ecips Gnaw|
Mark's focus was on the fact that "Der Ecips Gnaw" identified his "political views" as the "National Alliance." The National Alliance is a white supremacist organization which lists as the group's goals on its website:
- White Living Space
- An Aryan Society
- A Responsible Government
- A New Educational System
- An Economic Policy Based on Racial Principles
My googling revealed "Der Ecips Gnaw" is also very active in selling herbal incense.
This points to something I've said before. People involved in political causes have to be vigilant about who they associate with in promoting the cause. Members of fringe groups, often espousing racial and ethnic hatred, will try to latch on to legitimate causes to promote their organization and recruit members. In the process those people from the fringe begin to be looked upon as representative of the cause...which undermines the cause. Those who oppose gun rights would like nothing more than to point to a white supremacist as what the rally in Broad Ripple is about. It is not fair, but then the game of politics is not about fairness.
