So many of the whites here at USMB want to talk about the BLM and compare them to the KKK. Some here actually said the KKK is gone so their racism we talk about is fiction and part of the past. So now we are going to examine white supremacist groups that exist right now. ALL RISE! CLASS IN SESSION! Racist, Violent, Unpunished: A White Hate Group’s Campaign of Menace They train to fight. They post their beatings online. And so far, they have little reason to fear the authorities. by A.C. Thompson, ProPublica, Ali Winston and Darwin BondGraham for ProPublica Oct. 19, 2017, 2:01 p.m. EDT ProPublica spent weeks examining one distinctive group at the center of the violence in Charlottesville: an organization called the Rise Above Movement, one of whose members was the white man dispensing beatings near Emancipation Park Aug. 12. The group, based in Southern California, claims more than 50 members and a singular purpose: physically attacking its ideological foes. RAM’s members spend weekends training in boxing and other martial arts, and they have boasted publicly of their violence during protests in Huntington Beach, San Bernardino and Berkeley. Many of the altercations have been captured on video, and its members are not hard to spot. Indeed, ProPublica has identified the group’s core members and interviewed one of its leaders at length. The man in the Charlottesville attacks — filmed by a documentary crew working with ProPublica — is 24-year-old Ben Daley, who runs a Southern California tree-trimming business. Many of the organization’s core members, including Daley, have serious criminal histories, according to interviews and a review of court records. Before joining RAM, several members spent time in jail or state prison on serious felony charges including assault, robbery, and gun and knife offenses. Daley did seven days in jail for carrying a concealed snub-nosed revolver. Another RAM member served a prison term for stabbing a Latino man five times in a 2009 gang assault. “Fundamentally, RAM operates like an alt-right street-fighting club,” said Oren Segal, director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism.

Four episodes of violence documented by ProPublica resulted in only a single arrest — and in that case prosecutors declined to go forward. Law enforcement officials in the four cities — Charlottesville, Huntington Beach, San Bernardino and Berkeley — either would not comment about RAM or said they had too little evidence or too few resources to seriously investigate the group’s members. Racist, violent, unpunished: A white hate group’s campaign of menace — ProPublica Known racist white violent offenders getting away with it. Funny how they don't get mentioned by that same liberal media you guys bitch about all the time. And these guys are not the only ones. Tonight.
