Please excuse my while I vomit...

Via an e-mail list I belong to, yesterday I learned of Prussian Blue, a duo of pretty 13-year old blonde twins named Lynx and Lamb who like to sing songs like Aryan Man Awake and Sacrifice (a tribute to Rudolf Hess) They're from Bakersfield, CA and have become darlings of the white supremacist and neo-Nazi circuit:
"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."


April home-schools the girls, teaching them her own unique perspective on everything from current to historical events. In addition, April's father surrounds the family with symbols of his beliefs — specifically the Nazi swastika. It appears on his belt buckle, on the side of his pick-up truck and he's even registered it as his cattle brand with the Bureau of Livestock Identification.

"Because it's provocative," explains April of the cattle brand, "to him he thinks it's important as a symbol of freedom of speech that he can use it as his cattle brand."
Sounds like their father is guilty of child abuse to me. One also has to wonder whether he's dropped one of those cattle brands on his head. (The Nazi Swastika, a symbol of freedom?) But, worse, the twins' popularity is growing, such that David Duke uses them to draw a crowd, and their music is being used as propaganda, with the hope that, as young fans mature, they are drawn to harder stuff:
Since they began singing, the girls have become such a force in the white nationalist movement, that David Duke — the former presidential candidate, one-time Ku-Klux-Klan grand wizard and outspoken white supremacist — uses the twins to draw a crowd.

Prussian Blue supporter Erich Gliebe, operator of one of the nation's most notorious hate music labels, Resistance Records, hopes younger performers like Lynx and Lamb will help expand the base of the White Nationalist cause.

"Eleven and 12 years old," he said, "I think that's the perfect age to start grooming kids and instill in them a strong racial identity."

Gliebe, who targets young, mainstream white rockers at music festivals like this past summer's "Ozzfest," says he uses music to get his message out.

But with names like Blue-Eyed Devils and Angry Aryans, these tunes are far more extreme than the ones sung by Lamb and Lynx.
Get a load of the lyrics to one of their songs, Aryan Man Awake:
When the man who plows the fields is driven from his lands.
When the carpenter must give away what he's built with his own hands.
When a mother's only children belong to her no more.
And black masked men with guns come bashing down the doors.
Where freedom exists for only those with darker skin.
Where lies and propaganda will never let you win.
Where symbols of your heritage are held with such contempt
And benefits of country 'cept tax are you exempt.

Aryan man awake
How much more will you take?
Turn that fear to hate
Aryan man awake.
All one can hope is that, as they get further into their teen years, they rebel a bit against their parents (as so many teenagers do) and renounce this sort of disgusting racist spew.

You know, I need to get back to medblogging and science blogging next week. This sort of stuff raises my blood pressure too much.

I coudn't get past the first sentence so maybe you convered this in your post but this might be the most outrageous quote I've read in a long time, "We're proud of being white, we want to keep being white,"

How in hell could they not keep being white? I know what they meant but it's funny because only a truly moronic pawn would read their father's cue card and say something so dumb.

Oh, and I didn't know the Malfoys had daughters.

Bob Altemeyer, a University of Manitoba psychology professor who studies authoritarian personalities, found that students with high authoritarianism scores tended to adopt more tolerant attitudes as their college education progressed.

I wonder if education and exposure to a world wider than one's parents' walled-off mental enclave has an analogous effect on kids raised to be racist hatefreaks.

I hope so. If ever there was a case where the old UNCF slogan "A mind is a terrible thing to waste" is perfectly apt, it would be these girls.

now that I think about it, I hope they're not being abused and just trying to placate their skinhead parent(s).

Prussian Blues real lat name is Lingelser. April Gaede forces her kids ti use her last name so she can hook up with more racist men.

No race needs protecting. The law of nature is about survival of the fittest. If a race is dying out, then it must be weak.

Once upon a long time ago I got an airplane to fly somewhere near the holidays. I sat next to a young high school student. She was flying back to her parents home in New England from her Christian boarding school on the LEFT COAST! (who sends their child to the opposite end of the county to high school!!???... especially from New England to the West Coast???!!! Okay, my dad went to a boarding school across the country... but that was because he was in a single parent household and his dad was called up in WWII. My dad chose a boarding school near his grandfather, it just happened to be across the country in Georgia. This young lady had no relatives on the West Coast).

Anyway... She turned to me after the pilot wished everyone a "Happy Holiday", saying that she finally figured out that people don't say "Merry Christmas" because she just learned that not everyone was a Christian.

Sometimes, they do learn that there are other things outside when they get older.

(hopefully she did not turn out like my future sister-in-law who wanted to legislate that all Americans be Christian. Yikes!)

The example of David Horowitz shows that childhood propaganda doesn't always take.

PS
Those girls are really a sad thing. Autism Diva used to live in Aryan Nations land, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. She also used to live in "Militia of Montana" land. eeek.

One thing the girls could do to stay white is avoid the sun.

Has anyone told these people that "Aryans" include Iranians? Would the girls be allowed to marry an Iranian?

A bit relevant to this post, but more relevant to the post about the troubles in Toledo, David Neiwert have a good post about what went wrong.

No, Autism Diva, most of these people think Iranians are Arabs. And I think we know what they think of Semitic people.

Just one correction about these loathsome people, April's father is the girl's grandfather, not their father (although...). Their father, who is no longer a presence with the family may be guilty - at least morally - of child abuse if his views are not similar and he didn't move heaven and earth - legally and even illegally - to get them out of that situation. I fear it's too late now.

After reading that, I will never refer to Lindsay Lohan, who is from my town, as a dingbat again.

This example is testament to the awful responsibility we have as parents. Our children, when young, will believe anything we tell them. Anything.

Pre-teens making crappy music is offensive enough without having to add anti-semitism and white supremacy into the mix.

Good God.

Louis Theroux followed them around for a month as one of his Wierd Weekends a couple of years ago. I'm not sure if it's ever shown in the states, but if not there're excerpts here:

Scary stuff.

Prussian Blue Blog
Hey HCN, isn't it ironic?
Prussian blue is a dark blue pigment used in paints and formerly in blueprints. It has several different chemical names, these being iron(III) ferrocyanide, ferric ferrocyanide, iron(III) hexacyanoferrate(II), and ferric hexacyanoferrate

I should have known the Chelati are behind with this:
Prussian blue can also act as a chelating agent, and is used as a treatment for heavy metals poisoning

The fear of their cultural disappearing to the melting pot is something that comes up again and again amoung white supremacists of all sectors of life. It's starts off as a somewhat reasonable concern before exploding into full fledged reactionaryism. These concerns are something that should be confronted respectfully if we are to convince potential neonazis not to become extremists themselves. It can't be simply ignored.

My bet is that Duke and co. will drop those kids like a hot potato when or if they stop looking cute.

I notice how everyone was quick to blame the twins' biological father, who actually is nowhere in the picture. As Americans, we assume it's some dominant man. It is, but it's grandpappy on dumbass Mama's side. Her daddy spews, she made him happy regurgitating his crap, she raises beautiful daughters to take it to extremes to keep him pleased. I wonder if it's possible to kidnap, reprogram, and for the love of God, rename these two souls before they are irrevokably lost. Poor girls. Their absolute trust has been absolutely betrayed by their family.

This is indeed tragic, but these girls are clearly not thinking for themselves and have been programmed to believe this crap. There's definitely hope for them. The mother said Bakersfield wasn't "white enough" for them so they left for the pacific northwest in hopes of finding an all-white community. Considering how many natives live in the PNW, I wonder what mom will do to explain the existence of these people who we stole "Vinland" from.

On another side, I find it irritating that the media singles out white supremacists for slander and not black supremacists like NOI or latino supermacists like La Raza. Bit of a double standard
