More proof that the white man is under attack: a bunch of local white supremacists are facing criminal charges for allegedly dealing meth in North Texas and beyond.
As far as white supremacist drug gangs go, this one appears to be relatively diverse. Some of the people in the meth ring, the feds say, were from the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, while others from the Aryan Circle, a splinter group that sees itself as more "ideologically pure."
Also joining forces were members of the Irish Mob and the Dirty White Boys. "Despite their differences," the Northern District of Texas U.S. Attorney's Office says in a statement, "they would often collaborate for purposes of drug distribution or other illegal ventures." Perhaps they realized that they are all just humans in the end, humans who like to sell meth and are white.
The indictment names 37 suspects and charges them each with intent to distribute at least 500 grams of meth. The business venture began in January 2013, the indictment says, and over time the police seized more than 16 pounds of meth and five firearms.
The alleged dealers are identified in the indictment by both their given names and their nicknames. Here are the best nicknames, in no particular order: Casper, Charlie Brown, Scout, Peppermint Patty, Cowboy Sean, Phreek and Pacman. And the nickname that feels most out-of-place: Taco Chris.
It seems only natural that white supremacist groups might turn to the business of selling meth, a drug that's devastated poor white communities much like crack has devastated poor black neighborhoods. If convicted, each suspect could face life in prison and millions in fines.
The indictment is below:
