‘Outed:’ Alabama Police Department Has Two Hate-Group Members On The Force

Southern Poverty Law Center

In 2013, Josh Doggrell took the stage at the national conference for the neo-Confederate League of the South (LOS).  He spoke about gun rights, county supremacy, the state of law enforcement in Alabama, and his loyalty to the League, writes the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

The League of the South is a neo-Confederate group that advocates for a second Southern secession and a society dominated by “European Americans,” writes the SPLC.

“It’s wonderful to be around sanity,” the founder and chairman of the League’s John C. Calhoun chapter in a video of the event posted to YouTube.

It was a common speech for a League conference. But Doggrell wasn’t quite a common southern nationalist, because he was a police officer, a lieutenant in the Anniston Police Department, and he wasn’t the only one; a second officer from his department, Lieutenant Wayne Brown, joined Doggrell at the convention, and they had come with good news – good news for any self-respecting southern nationalist at least.

The two Anniston, Alabama, police officers, attended the 2013 conference held by the neo-Confederate group the League of the South. Doggrell spoke at the conference—clips of which appear above.

The “godly” nation envisioned by the League should be run by an “Anglo-Celtic” (read: white) elite that would establish a Christian theocratic state and politically dominate blacks and other minorities, according to the SPLC.

Originally founded by a group that included many Southern university professors, the group lost its Ph.D.s as it became more explicitly racist. The league denounces the federal government and northern and coastal states as part of “the Empire,” a materialist and anti-religious society.

In recent years, it has become increasingly rabid, writing about potential violence, criticizing perceived Jewish power, and warning blacks that they would be defeated in any “race war.”

Irish Anti-Gay Group Claims Homosexuality Causes Cancer

An Irish campaigning group has launched a series of extraordinary attacks against same-sex couples, including claims that same-sex couples die younger, are more prone to cancer, and are more likely to abuse and injure children, according to Newsweek.

“The Alliance for the Defence of the Family and Marriage (ADFAM), an initiative based in Ireland which claims to ‘promote and defend the traditional family,’ has been distributing the leaflets to spread their beliefs this week.”

Who Is ‘J Street?’

J Street is an advocacy group based in the United States whose aim is to promote American leadership to end the Arab-Israeli and Israel-Palestinian conflicts peacefully and diplomatically. It was founded in April 2008.

J Street states that it “supports a new direction for American policy in the Middle East – diplomatic solutions over military ones”, “multilateral over unilateral approaches to conflict resolution”; and “dialogue over confrontation” with wider international support.

J Street describes itself as a pro-Israel organization which supports peace between Israel and its neighbors.

Wkipedia:  “…the organization seeks to provide a political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans who believe that a ‘two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is essential to Israel’s survival as the national home of the Jewish people and as a vibrant democracy.'”

Recently, The Anti-Defamation League blasted the “left-wing lobby group” J Street for running an “inflammatory and repugnant” campaign against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Algemeiner:  “Though it calls itself a ‘pro-Israel, pro-peace’ group, J Street has actively lobbied against sanctions on the Iranian regime, devoting its energies to attacking Netanyahu almost exclusively. Its latest petition campaign, around the slogan ‘Israel’s Prime Minister is not the spokesman for all Jews,’ is directed at Netanyahu’s forthcoming speech to the US Congress on the threat posed by Iran’s nuclear ambitions.”

“At the height of the controversy surrounding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s scheduled speech to Congress, J Street’s petition campaign that attempts to distance itself and American Jews from Israel’s duly elected prime minister is inflammatory and repugnant,” ADL National Director Abraham Foxman said in a statement. “It exacerbates an already heated and politicized moment for U.S. Israel relations at a critical juncture in the West’s negotiations with Iran.”

The newspaper The Algemeiner calls J Street a “left-wing Jewish organization.”

In other words, J Street is a pro-peace Jewish organization that does not agree with everything Netanyahu does.

Foxman’s condemnation of J Street comes shortly after the ADL chief himself said that Netanyahu’s speech to Congress should be scrapped, arguing that the invitation to the Israeli prime minister extended by House Speaker John Boehner “looks like a political challenge to the White House.”

House GOP Leader Once Addressed White Supremacists

A House GOP leader has acknowledged that he once addressed a gathering of white supremacists, though his office denies any association with the group’s social views.

Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise, Cathy McMorris Rodgers

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the chamber’s third-ranking Republican, served in the Louisiana Legislature when he appeared in 2002 at a convention of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO).

The group was founded by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, and the Southern Poverty Law Center has classified the group as a hate group.

In a written statement, Scalise aide Moira Bagley Smith confirmed that Scalise addressed the group as it gathered at a hotel near the neighborhoods that both Scalise and Duke represented during separate terms as state lawmakers.
