Should We Be Afraid?

Some Berkeley residents found a poster on their doorsteps this week from a white supremacist group calling for skinhead "death squads" to take up arms in an "Aryan people's insurgency."

The materials also included a flyer saying, "Avenge the Zebra Murders," a reference to the 1973-1974 Bay Area killing spree of 14 white victims by what prosecutors described as a black racist cult. The material was published by a group in Oroville (Butte County) linked to former KKK leader Tom Metzger, said Anti-Defamation League regional director Jonathan Bernstein.

The language is too vague to fall under Berkeley's hate crime law, said police spokesman Ed Galvan. Greg Withrow, leader of the group promoting the pamphlets, said Berkeley was targeted because "people there enjoy flying their little Communist flags."

America is so screwed up.
