Hammerskin Nation Distributes White Power Flyers In Long Beach, Mississippi

On December 2nd, 2009, the Biloxi-Gulfport Sun-Herald reported that white power flyers attributable to the Hammerskin Nation were distributed in the Pecan Park area of Long Beach, Mississippi. The brochures, which were in plastic bags filled with rocks, were reportedly distributed to households in the area early on Tuesday December 1st and Wednesday December 2nd. Police Chief Wayne McDowell said his department is investigating, and at a minimum, the offenders could be subject to littering fines.

It is not known whether the distributor is an actual member of the Hammerskins or merely a sympathizer. According to the Hammerskin Nation website, the Hammerskin Nation is a leaderless group of men and women who have adopted the White Power Skinhead lifestyle. Contrary to the sensationalist media stereotypes, they encompass a wide variety of people, including blue collar workers, white collar professionals, college students, entrepreneurs, fathers and mothers. The Hammerskin brotherhood is way of achieving goals which they have all set for ourselves. These goals are many but can be summed up with one phrase consisting of 14 words; "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children."

Hammerskin Nation is subdivided into regional affiliates throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The Confederate Hammerskins are the regional affiliate for the southern U.S. The history of the Hammerskin movement is described HERE, and, to their credit, they don't whitewash their history. They own up to the growing pains that they've experienced, particularly during an earlier period of explosive growth. But as they began to stress quality over quantity, they've also showed how they've learned from their mistakes. Their end goal is to hold skinheads to a higher standard for the rest of their existence as the world’s oldest leading skinhead organization.

The Hammerskins don't take guff from antis. Antifa who confront the NSM and the Klan steer clear of the Hammerskins. As one poster on One People's Project put it, "...doing a face to face confrontation with Confederate Hammerskins is a bad idea".

By the way, the city of Long Beach continues its recovery from Katrina. A progress report is available HERE, and you can view some of the photos of the destruction wrought by Katrina HERE.
