We live in a fucked up backwards-ass country. It's no wonder a large percentage of dipshits can be whipped into a frenzy to vote against their own interests time and time again, -so long as the right mascot tells them to. Think about this one for a sec: Gays are ineligible to serve in the military, even for specialized positions such as translators etc.; yet White Supremacists are all good to become highly trained killing machines... In other words, the United States would rather have self professed NEO NAZIS in the service, than people who happened to be homosexuals. On one hand you have people who consciously subscribe to supremacist NAZI philosophy- the exact philosophy we used our military to fight against in WWII, and on the other hand you have someone who is attracted to people of the same sex. Seriously, what a fucking embarrassment. Until we get our own shit together, we need not invade another country under the guise of spreading 'freedom'.
Army regulations prohibit soldiers from participating in racist groups, and recruiters are instructed to keep an eye out for suspicious tattoos. Before signing on the dotted line, enlistees are required to explain any tattoos. At a Tampa recruitment office, though, Fogarty sailed right through the signup process. “They just told me to write an explanation of each tattoo, and I made up some stuff, and that was that,” he says. Soon he was posted to Fort Stewart in Georgia, where he became part of the 3rd Infantry Division.
Fogarty’s ex-girlfriend, intent on destroying his new military career, sent a dossier of photographs to Fort Stewart. The photos showed Fogarty attending white supremacist rallies and performing with his band, Attack. “They hauled me before some sort of committee and showed me the pictures,” Fogarty says. “I just denied them and said my girlfriend was a spiteful bitch.” He adds: “They knew what I was about. But they let it go because I’m a great soldier.”
In 2003, Fogarty was sent to Iraq. For two years he served in the military police, escorting officers, including generals, around the hostile country. He says he was granted top-secret clearance and access to battle plans. Fogarty speaks with regret that he “never had any kill counts.” But he says his time in Iraq increased his racist resolve.
“I hate Arabs more than anybody, for the simple fact I’ve served over there and seen how they live,” he tells me. “They’re just a backward people. Them and the Jews are just disgusting people as far as I’m concerned. Their customs, everything to do with the Middle East, is just repugnant to me.”
