Iraq veteran Forrest Fogarty sailed through recruitment despite his neo-Nazi tattoos.

June 15, 2009 | On a muggy Florida evening in 2008, I meet Iraq War veteran Forrest Fogarty in the Winghouse, a little bar-restaurant on the outskirts of Tampa, his favorite hangout. He told me on the phone I would recognize him by his skinhead. Sure enough, when I spot a white guy at a table by the door with a shaved head, white tank top and bulging muscles, I know it can only be him.

Over a plate of chicken wings, he tells me about his path into the white-power movement. "I was 14 when I decided I wanted to be a Nazi," he says. At his first high school, near Los Angeles, he was bullied by black and Latino kids. That's when he first heard Skrewdriver, a band he calls "the godfather of the white power movement." "I became obsessed," he says. He had an image from one of Skrewdriver's album covers — a Viking carrying a staff, an icon among white nationalists — tattooed on his left forearm. Soon after he had a Celtic cross, an Irish symbol appropriated by neo-Nazis, emblazoned on his stomach.

At 15, Fogarty moved with his dad to Tampa, where he started picking fights with groups of black kids at his new high school. "On the first day, this bunch of niggers, they thought I was a racist, so they asked, 'Are you in the KKK?'" he tells me. "I said, 'Yeah,' and it was on." Soon enough, he was expelled.

For the next six years, Fogarty flitted from landscaping job to construction job, neither of which he'd ever wanted to do. "I was just drinking and fighting," he says. He started his own Nazi rock group, Attack, and made friends in the National Alliance, at the time the biggest neo-Nazi group in the country. It has called for a "a long-term eugenics program involving at least the entire populations of Europe and America."

But the military ran in Fogarty's family. His grandfather had served during World War II, Korea and Vietnam, and his dad had been a Marine in Vietnam. At 22, Fogarty resolved to follow in their footsteps. "I wanted to serve my country," he says.

Army regulations prohibit soldiers from participating in racist groups, and recruiters are instructed to keep an eye out for suspicious tattoos. Before signing on the dotted line, enlistees are required to explain any tattoos. At a Tampa recruitment office, though, Fogarty sailed right through the signup process. "They just told me to write an explanation of each tattoo, and I made up some stuff, and that was that," he says. Soon he was posted to Fort Stewart in Georgia, where he became part of the 3rd Infantry Division.

Fogarty's ex-girlfriend, intent on destroying his new military career, sent a dossier of photographs to Fort Stewart. The photos showed Fogarty attending white supremacist rallies and performing with his band, Attack. "They hauled me before some sort of committee and showed me the pictures," Fogarty says. "I just denied them and said my girlfriend was a spiteful bitch." He adds: "They knew what I was about. But they let it go because I'm a great soldier."

In 2003, Fogarty was sent to Iraq. For two years he served in the military police, escorting officers, including generals, around the hostile country. He says he was granted top-secret clearance and access to battle plans. Fogarty speaks with regret that he "never had any kill counts." But he says his time in Iraq increased his racist resolve.

"I hate Arabs more than anybody, for the simple fact I've served over there and seen how they live," he tells me. "They're just a backward people. Them and the Jews are just disgusting people as far as I'm concerned. Their customs, everything to do with the Middle East, is just repugnant to me."

Because of his tattoos and his racist comments, most of his buddies and his commanding officers were aware of his Nazism. "They all knew in my unit," he says. "They would always kid around and say, 'Hey, you're that skinhead!'" But no one sounded an alarm to higher-ups. "I would volunteer for all the hardest missions, and they were like, 'Let Fogarty go.' They didn't want to get rid of me."

Fogarty left the Army in 2005 with an honorable discharge. He says he was asked to reenlist. He declined. He was sick of the system.

Since the launch of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the U.S. military has struggled to recruit and reenlist troops. As the conflicts have dragged on, the military has loosened regulations, issuing "moral waivers" in many cases, allowing even those with criminal records to join up. Veterans suffering post-traumatic stress disorder have been ordered back to the Middle East for second and third tours of duty.

The lax regulations have also opened the military's doors to neo-Nazis, white supremacists and gang members — with drastic consequences. Some neo-Nazis have been charged with crimes inside the military, and others have been linked to recruitment efforts for the white right. A recent Department of Homeland Security report, "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment," stated: "The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today." Many white supremacists join the Army to secure training for, as they see it, a future domestic race war. Others claim to be shooting Iraqis not to pursue the military's strategic goals but because killing "hajjis" is their duty as white militants.

Soldiers' associations with extremist groups, and their racist actions, contravene a host of military statutes instituted in the past three decades. But during the "war on terror," U.S. armed forces have turned a blind eye on their own regulations. A 2005 Department of Defense report states, "Effectively, the military has a 'don't ask, don't tell' policy pertaining to extremism. If individuals can perform satisfactorily, without making their extremist opinions overt … they are likely to be able to complete their contracts."

Carter F. Smith is a former military investigator who worked with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command from 2004 to 2006, when he helped to root out gang violence in troops. "When you need more soldiers, you lower the standards, whether you say so or not," he says. "The increase in gangs and extremists is an indicator of this." Military investigators may be concerned about white supremacists, he says. "But they have a war to fight, and they don't have incentive to slow down."

Tom Metzger is the former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and current leader of the White Aryan Resistance. He tells me the military has never been more tolerant of racial extremists. "Now they are letting everybody in," he says.

  1. Alert! Alert! White manhood showing! White manhood showing! Contact the thought police at once!

    Your internet political commisar orders it!

  2. Gangs in the military are also a huge problem right now. While the focus of this article is on white supremacists, the attraction is there for many who want to create havoc in our society. I don't know how they can guard against it and still maintain any kind of military force.

  3. What if you brought all the pro-white soldiers home and the Jews were forced to fight their own battles? That would be like you were killing Jews and that would make you a Nazi.

  4. Aryan Warriors trained to kill complements of the US government. Be afraid, Be very afraid!

  5. Aryans are coward pussies. See Von Brann.

  6. You would think that after McVeigh the US military would screen out these kind of people. They are a danger to a free society.

  7. So your saying that US military trained personnel are cowards and pussys? How many wars have you been seen commie filth?

  8. Above needs to learn to write the Kings English. What a dumbass! LOL

  9. Nikki, if everyone is suppose to be treated fair and equal in America than that should mean religion or politics doesn't matter when joining the military because if you start pinpointing a certain group for exclusion than thats discrimination.

  10. These guys are the real lone wolves and when they start pulling triggers nobody will be safe.

  11. How many wars have you fought in commie filth?

  12. yeh....McVeigh...but we hardly ever hear about the dozens of women, children & babies brutally murdered by ZOG at Waco, Texas, a short while before the OKC "bombing", now, do we?

    McVeigh had little or nuthin' to do with the actual OKC "bombing"....which was a ZOG "false-flag"'s even possible that McVeigh is still alive...being an integral part of the "psy-op" but not the actual incident....(!Google)....we don't live in "a free society" (unless you count the right to look at porn' & other filth as being "free" :-|~~ )...we live under a ZOG tyranny lorded over by diabolical, mass-murdering, psychopathic baby-butchers!

    DEATH! to them all!

  13. Nikki,

    How do you feel about self-loving whites who participate in foriegn wars not directly involving the United States

  14. Nikki continues to eat Janet Napolitano's crotch.

  15. Isn't there some sort of psychological screening that the military gives before you can enlist? I'm not so worried about beliefs or ideology here as I am about psycholgical stability of ALL who are accepted into our military.

  16. Mike Blevins was once enlisted in the United States military.

  17. With that statement, Nikki, I gather you are against the military...I mean you say everyone is mentally off because they want to go into the military or they are mentally off when they get out?

  18. I am starting to think Nikki is less of the crusader against whites than she used to be or ever was. Sometimes it seems like she's saying that wheather or not she agrees with white existence isn't the point, it's putting fed up people in the target-rich enviroment of the USA that worries her.

    However, I've been around the military a lot and servered in various paramilitary forces, both federally funded and otherwise. Want to know something that everyone nearby already knows? There are three kinds of white soldiers: the programmed, the white power types and the ones that soon will be. They aren't about to start kicking people out for being white and aware of it.

    I thought racists were mentally ill cowards though? Being in the military requires a lot of things that a mentally ill coward can't produce. Hmmm...nice outfit, emperor.

  19. Todays Army appears to be training the future Friecorps.

    Long live America and long live our armed forces...apparently our last line of defense against tyranny. Yes, there are some still left in our armed forces that WILL NOT fire upon American citizens.

    Some of those guys actually take their oath to the Constitution seriously.

  20. Man I am counting the days until they throw Hal Turner in the Big house.

  21. "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office." --Rev. Jeremiah Wright

    I find it interesting that reverend Wright said “Them Jews,” statement the same day the shooting occurred at the Holocaust museum. I guess Nikki was too busy politicizing this event as were others of her ilk.

    You see, Nikki, this is why we call you hypocritical, and I guess now you can add “opportunist” to that list.

    Some anti-Semites are more equal than others in your mind I suppose.

    Or perhaps you are too damn scared to draw the obvious conclusions—that one of Rev. Wright’s parishioners that sat in his church every Sunday for the last 20 is now the President of the United States just might share some of the same hatred for Jews that Jeremiah Wright and Von Brunn share.

    The time for talk is over. Any further delays in implementing self-protecting plans for families, neighborhoods, adjacent farms and ranches are unwise, self-defeating, and potentially disastrous. Further enumeration of the historical failures and the successful plots against freedom, liberty, personal and national sovereignty are a waste of time. Everyone who already knows the reasons for our current state of emergency, are crystal clear as to their origins and the implications for all Republic loving individuals.

    That is why I have made the decision to relinquish my weekly radio broadcast on Republic Broadcasting, “Voices from the Heartland” effective May 30th. The time consumed in preparing for that weekly event is now being put into relevant action in the field. I have accepted a number of speaking engagements beginning June 5th and running in Phase I through the middle of August. All of these plans assume one major concept. It is that we will somehow avoid a catastrophe within this nation that emanates from the banking fiasco, the death of the automotive industry, the collapse of the employment market, a nuclear confrontation with North Korea, or any number of other unthinkable possibilities, and all of those outcomes are still far from certain.

    Resilient Americans, who have prepared for and are awaiting the other shoe’s arrival upon their heads, are now grouping together in a final effort to gather all of the tactical information they can prior to the end game being fulfilled.

    People can continue to complain, blame others, analyze ad nauseum, and not change a thing at this point. Others are preparing for campaigns to unseat a 20 term incumbent and spend the next 18 months working for nothing. Communism under the thin guise of socialism has arrived at our front door. We accepted all of the false, misleading, placating, tranquilizing, feely-good stupidity that the democrats and Barry Sotero offered us. What he was doing all along under the guise of a stimulus, was petting the puppy’s head as he administered the euthanasia drugs.

    Any further discussion about how we can use the courts to reverse absolutely mind-numbingly unconstitutional legislation is pointless. The courts are owned by the King and his henchmen. All efforts to convince local government that they must commit to republic building instead of community destruction through politically correct versions of state and national lap-dog plans sent forth from Washington, are useless. Our citizen driven national version of the family SUV has come to rest against the guard rail found at the end of the pavement. The trip is over folks, we are out of road. I wish I could tell you where you are going. If you don’t know or don’t have a map, it wouldn’t do me much good to try to tell you anyway. One thing is for certain; from here you will walk the rest of the way. For many it will be to destination unknown. Most are on the way to the City of Despair, in the State of Confusion, located within the Nation of Disgrace. For others, the destination will not be pleasant nor a matter of choice. You get the picture. Those who, “take all of your belongings and climb into the truck,” will weep in utter misery for the personal negligence that they brought upon themselves and their families. You will have paid the ultimate price.
    So,………will you take the final moments God is giving you to step away from your “stupid zone” and do what you should have so long ago?

  23. part 2.

    Will you finally make some plans? Will you really sell off your unnecessary toys and purchase the absolutely necessary survival tools that will give you just a chance to make it through? Will you search out the ultimate truth of our predicament and the One who can give you peace, serenity and eternal life? Can you admit that putting a dictator in office was one of your very worst mistakes, and you will try to make amends by resisting him and his communist platform? Will you do all you can to convert your family and friends who also voted for him and others supporting him to work against him in every way possible? That may sting and burn to be told that, but it is far better than the amputation of your limbs that is coming if he continues to dismantle this nation and its last freedoms.

    Editorials like these are expected to consume about 1500 words. This is half that. Like I said, the time for talk is over.

    My training and experience in law enforcement and military tactics is extensive. You should know what I know, NOW! If you want me to come to your area, meet with your group, it works like this. Get 30-40 like minded together. Collect $25 from each. That covers my driving time, a few meals, some printed materials, CD’s for each attendee and a Super 8. I drive so that I can have mobility and the tools I need to get out and back. So far, eleven groups have said yes, we will do that, it is worth it. Contact me at the e-mail address listed below. You can call me on my cell at 906-367-0505. The ones I have trained are grateful and far more ready than before. The choice is yours. God bless each one of you.

  24. Nikki, with all the news about the army, Hal Turner, and the museum shooting, don't forget the NSM anti-GAY protest in Ohio this past weekend fell flat on its face and the NSM was so embarassed about it they removed all mention from their website hopeing no one would notice. :)

  25. Thank you, Jim Ramm. We are all glad you still care...for some reason.

  26. NSM members heads aren't level,
    because they have made a pact with the devil.

    I won't accuse Schoep of being a snitch,
    However, I do know that he is a punk-asse bitch!


  27. Your Darkest FearJune 17, 2009 10:05 PM

    What a joke. I've been a member of many anti groups over the years. But now that the jewish slant of every single one of them is clear to me it is abundantly obvious what your agenda is. And it stinks. You're a bunch of assholes.

  28. You can't be an anti and have the Anti-Semitism going dick face. Pray we don't find out where you live bitch.

  29. Bath time for Uncle Mikey II is now out. BIGGER BETTER and because of the size of my tiny cock I got a stunt double for the ass raping. All profits go to fund the White National cause and buy me more Twinkies.

  30. Goddamn. If you'd ever like to break into porn call me up! I could make you a star Nikki!

  31. Shit, you fools see Jim Ramm and Von Bluvens work in every post. Only one word that fully describes that malady: PARANOID! Instead on forgetting about these clowns you fools claim they are everywhere.

    Grow up children.
    These loonies are yesterday.

  32. I see the IPs. Ramsey and Blevins account for about 30 to 40 % of the posts, Matthew.

  33. One thing neither one of them ever figure out is that someone who wasn't one of them wouldn't get upset about being accused of being them. So the stuck pig does his thing. It's obvious to anyone who pays attention that Chris Drake is lurking around here too.


  35. Your so full of shit, you can't see IP's since we use a proxy!

  36. I think everyone can follow the stink of "Jim Ratt."

  37. Don't worry, the hate speech on "Ratts" site is reported on the FBI tip line every day. He will be in prison soon. If some good citizen doesn't kill him first.

  38. Ramm is a devil worshiping piece of shit, hopefully somebody will shoot him soon.

    Well Mr. Burks, constantly reporting lies to the FBI is a Crime. You may find yourself in a mess that your FBI handlers won't be able to get you out of.

    Go back to having sex with your mom!

  39. I too smell the overwhelming stench of pedophile Mikey Burks. Go away child molestor!

  40. There are thousands of bloods, craps (crips), and spic gang members in the military and are all part of hate groups who attack and harrass whites (People) in their neighborhood without hesistating. Nobody does shit about them, and these anti-white, lifeless faggots only complain about white hate groups. Take a look at some nigger gang literature and go through their neiborhood by yourself like the few white residents do and see how much they like you and how nice, handsome, and nice-smelling they all are. God damn I have lived around niggers and spics for years in Chicago and I can't understand how you sickening race traitors could even remotely like nigger apes. Think all these weak internet defamations of honest, mild mannered White People makes you look good to anyone? And I thought our educational system was working....oh wait they teach from 5th grade that niggers are good and racism is bad to kids who have never come close to it in their life.

  41. "Goddamn. If you'd ever like to break into porn call me up! I could make you a star Nikki!"

    probably the best thing she will ever be good at.
