Good Morning From The Sewer Of Humanity
On one end, we've got two perky, white 13-year-old race-haters (can't imagine they like gays, lesbians or trannies much either) poised for singing stardom:

Thirteen-year-old twins Lamb and Lynx Gaede have one album out, another on the way, a music video, and lots of fans.

They may remind you another famous pair of singers, the Olsen Twins, and the girls say they like that. But unlike the Olsens, who built a media empire on their fun-loving, squeaky-clean image, Lamb and Lynx are cultivating a much darker personna. They are white nationalists and use their talents to preach a message of hate.

Known as "Prussian Blue" — a nod to their German heritage and bright blue eyes — the girls from Bakersfield, Calif., have been performing songs about white nationalism before all-white crowds since they were nine.

"We're proud of being white, we want to keep being white," said Lynx. "We want our people to stay white … we don't want to just be, you know, a big muddle. We just want to preserve our race."

Lynx and Lamb have been nurtured on racist beliefs since birth by their mother April. "They need to have the background to understand why certain things are happening," said April, a stay-at-home mom who no longer lives with the twins' father. "I'm going to give them, give them my opinion just like any, any parent would."

...Songs like "Sacrifice" — a tribute to Nazi Rudolf Hess, Hitler's deputy Fuhrer — clearly show the effect of the girls' upbringing. The lyrics praise Hess as a "man of peace who wouldn't give up."

(Here's more on the girls)

And on the other end, we've got a black former instructor at N.C. State University calling for death to whitey:

The conference at Howard was organized to discuss mainstream media coverage of racial issues after Hurricane Katrina.

But Kambon's comments had little to do with that topic. He started by saying, "I'm gonna go out of bounds."

He then explained how he grew up in Brooklyn and eventually began to wonder why so many of his African-American friends were dying. He concluded that the reason was systematic oppression by a society designed and run by whites. He talked about the role of blacks in "an international plantation" and suggested that "white people want to kill you."

His address lasted about 10 minutes, and he saved his most scathing remarks for last.

"We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve this problem. ... So we just have to just set up our own system and stop playing and get very serious and not be diverted from coming up with a solution to the problem, and the problem on the planet is white people."

No, the problem is primitive race-haters like those mentioned above. Wasn't it all set out pretty crystal-clearly in Sneetches? Apparently, they don't sell Dr. Seuss in racist-owned bookstores.

Happily, these voices are more irrelevant every day in America. Here in North Idaho, those bums were kicked out by the Southern Poverty Law Center about 5 years back, and now you would be hard pressed to know they ever existed.

By exposing these people for who they truly are, mostly ignorant criminals who were unable to cope in even their own insulated societies, their message of intolerance or "pride" disappeared. Especially interesting here was how they funded their "pride" activities, largely through the sale of methamphetamine.

Also, as soon as those rebellious mother hating hormones kick in, I predict you will see Lamb & Lynx both dating Alan Iverson at the same time.

I read a long, luridly fascinating feature story about Lamb and Lynx in one of the British papers when I was in London two years ago. I thought then, as I think now, why do I have to go to London to read such a piece about people who live near Fresno?

Perhaps for the same reason I don't regularly read your column or mine in "The Dead Lady" (my recent pet name for our local paper [vis a vis The New York Times, commonly known as "The Gray Lady"]).

They often seem quite allergic to anything I find interesting. I did have a Times person send me a link to a dumb, unclever piece on which drinks mean what in dating...the same week I published a scholarship-rich column (also funny, which the Times piece wasn't) analyzing why it's unreasonable to expect marriage to last a lifetime (unless we go back to business pact-based marriage instead of love and passion-based marriage). As historian Stephanie Coontz noted, once people started getting married for love (as opposed to marrying to merge herds or to keep peace between France and Spain) they started getting divorced for lack of it.

Excellent points! It's not likely that the girls are going to grow up to be big news. It's a buyer's market for teenage singers. These two are, almost by definition, removed from engine of rhythmic and timbral innovation that drives American pop. Their kind of hatred requires a lot of pressurized isolation, which showbiz ignores as unprofitable.

There are interesting contradictions everywhere in this issue. First, the SPLC loads its pages with pejorative language while pretending to be objective; legions of the politically correct wish to drive the problem underground so they won't have to see it; credit is claimed by all sides for manufactured "reasons"; people worry about the popularity of these two even as the Dixie Chicks completely disappeared from country charts and radio for saying they were ashamed of President Bush (politics and singing never mix).

Meanwhile, no one, and I mean no one, tells the truth about why some ethnic groups in the US are routinely excluded from "assistance" programs because of their race, and the Supreme Court tells a state that quotas are just fine.

Want to be a hypocrite? Just claim that the marcher in Washington is entitled to say she stands with insurgents against the "brutal American occupation", by the First Amendment, then deny these girls their freedom of speech. You want these people out where you can see them, not supporting an (the) "Invisible Empire".

Lamb and Lynx have a sibling named "Dresden". Is their mother just dumb or what? White people can name their kids foolish things, too.

Whoops, hit the send button too soon. Last spring, when I was working on A Current Affair, we looked at Lamb and Lynx, and the Mom wasn't sure she wanted to talk to us--on FOX! So I guess she thought ABC would be more "fair".

They have a creepy following, and their site links to some scary stuff. Also, did you all know that aryan nationalist types are "born again pagans", too? Thor is more than the punchline to a dirty joke.

Radwaste, why must you set up a straw man argument that isn't even relevant to the discussion? You sound like one of those "white guys are so put upon" who are Lamb & Lynx's target audience. It's sad that children are indoctrinated with hate and appalling that they then try to turn it into a career - but no one ever suggested this was anything other than legal.

Btw, the statement that the Supreme Court tells states that quotas are fine is dead wrong. They specifically held the opposite - quotas got knocked down, but they upheld a particular type of affirmative action that did not involve quotas, under certain factual circumstances and rationales, in a limited setting.
