I know what you are thinking. It’s no surprise that a white supremacist would fire on President Obama’s house. But wait! There’s more! I got details on the story of the shots fired at the White House on November 11th.
The New York Times today reported that the alleged shooter is now in custody. 1 “Oscar Ramiro Ortega Hernandez was arrested at a hotel near Indiana, Pa., about 12:35 p.m. by the Pennsylvania State Police…”
The article described a tattoo on the neck of Mr. Ortega-Hernandez. It was one word. “Israel.”
My hackles rose. The “Israel” tattoo on a man from a state, Idaho, noted for its high population of race haters and white supremacists, hmmm? It set off my Mammy Yokum, as my grandma would say. Then I thought, no, this guy has a Spanish last name. He wouldn’t be a white supremacist! And probably not a Jew either.
Research yielded this frightening information, located on a database of hate symbols maintained by the Anti-Defamation League. It was within an article on the ORION acronym.
The slogan "Our Race Is Our Nation" is used by a variety of groups. Christian Identity adherents like it because it is compatible with their belief that white people are descended from the ancient tribes of the Kingdom of Israel. (Emphasis added.)
There is even an Identity Ku Klan Klan group, based in Alabama, known as the "Orion Knights of the Ku Klux Klan." It is also used among neo-Nazis and racist skinheads. The Canadian white supremacist group Heritage Front adopted the slogan as its official motto.
I sighed. The poor Jews! They are a primary target of race haters.
On top of that, the Jews are now assigned the blame for begetting the White Race, on top of all the other crap they have to take. As one of my Jewish friends put it, “You cannot just decide not to be Jewish. It sticks with you. Nu?” (He really didn’t say the last word.) He taught me to pronounce challah properly, though. It’s (from the throat)…hhhhhhala!
So, I deduce that this must be the first time in history that a Latino White Supremacist who loves Israel because that’s where White People come from shoots at the White House when occupied by a half-White, half-Black man. The world is just getting too crazy, even for the crazies.
But I bet my Jewish friends are happy that the suspect is not Jewish!
