Anyone who's been around the far right for awhile can tell you all about its truly creepy sexual qualities. Child molesters and pedophiles are unusually common, as are various kinds of domestic-violence and rape cases. (In one militia trial I covered, three of the eight suspects had child-abuse convictions in their past.) When some of these get characters get all bellicose about "freedom," it makes your skin crawl thinking about just what the word means to them.
So did this little item from Susy Buchanan at the SPLC's Hatewatch blog, reporting on a new documentary about the white-supremacist singing act Prussian Blue, comprised of a couple of teenage twin girls:
- “Nazi Pop Twins” contains several profoundly creepy scenes. Chief among them is a speakerphone conversation set up by April Gaede between her daughters and white supremacist terrorist David Lane, who was in prison serving a 190-year sentence for his part in the 1984 machine-gun murder of a Jewish radio talk show host in Denver. (Lane died shortly after filming was completed.)
“When the girls were little they were like daughters or something,” says Lane, 69, who later calls twins Lynx and Lamb — who were 14 at the time — his “fantasy sweethearts.” “Now that they are grown women, and being a natural male, it’s… well, you know what I’m trying to say.”
Oh yeah, we do. (Lane, incidentally, is also the author of the white-supremacist creed called the "Fourteen Words.")
- Other lowlights include April Gaede teaching her 3-year-old daughter Dresden the white power ABCs (“A is for Aryan, B is for blood…”) and April’s father Bill Gaede, a California rancher who brands his cattle and horses with swastikas, negotiating the purchase of an M-16. Bill Gaede tells the filmmakers that Mexicans rape horses and boasts that he’s personally shot six Mexicans in the past four years.
Yep, just swell folks all over.
