BUSTED: Oklahoma police chief outed as owner of racist website and white supremacist record label

Published

on

A Texas television station investigating white supremacist hate in their region was startled to discover a website linked to the newly-appointed Colbert, Oklahoma police chief.

It started with all of the attention the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Hate Map” received following the violence in Charlottesville, VA.

Reporter Rachel Knapp of KXII noticed a single hategroup in the Texoma region and began investigating. The website — ISD Records — had filed paperwork in 2004 with the signature of Bart Alsbrook.

A Bart Asbrook was hired as Colbert’s interim Police Chief — just last week. Asbrook is the third Chief hired so far this year.

“We called Alsbrook about that application last week. He denied he was the Bart Alsbrook behind isdrecords.com,” KXII reported. “We searched for another Bart Alsbrook and couldn’t find another person with that name in the United States.”

Alsbrook’s initial denial was suspect after the site was taken offline “within hours” of the reporter’s questioning.

“When we called him back to ask him about it, Alsbrook claimed a group of skinheads stole his wallet and began using his name after a fight at a heavy metal concert in the 1990’s,” KXII reported.

KXII noted that Alsbrook was once charged with attempted murder, but the charge was later dropped. Alsbrook is currently only certified as a reserve officer, which means he will be required to earn his peace officer certification within six months.

In 2005, SPLC revealed that “Blood & Honour USA’s Texas coordinator Bart Alsbrook” had traveled to Ohio for “Blood and Honour” meetings with “skinhead groups from at least eight states.

ISD records sells “Combat 18” patches, which are associated with the “Blood and Honour” skinhead movement. The ’18’ in the name is derived from the initials of Adolf Hitler.

“Throughout the 1990’s Combat 18 was associated with acts of terrorism and violence including arson attacks,” the BBC reported.

Other items sold include a Blood & Honour patch along with Hitler Youth, KKK, SS, swastika and confederate flags.

Music includes “Hitler was Right” and “Start up the Panzers.”

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.

2020 Election

Here’s how Trump hopes to recreate his 2016 presidential win — and how Democrats can send him packing

Published

on

Writing for CNN on Saturday, election forecaster Harry Enten explained how President Donald Trump's recent, racist behavior lies in his desire to recreate the same electoral conditions that gave him a victory in 2016 in the presidential election next year.

"The Trump strategy is pretty simple: 1. Drive up the unfavorable ratings of his Democratic rival as he did in 2016 in order to compensate for his own low ratings. 2. Bank on an electoral college/popular vote split as he did in 2016. 3. Use a campaign of racial resentment to drive up turnout even more among groups favorable toward the President," wrote Enten. As he noted, Democrats have excellent odds to flip back Michigan and Pennsylvania, but they will have to work harder to win back any of the other states Trump flipped from the 2012 Obama camp — in particular Wisconsin, which was the closest state after those two.
