Christian Identity Skins on Front Page
(WNN - 30 October) A recent episode of Front Page, hosted by Ron Reagan
Jr. on Fox Network, did a special on the Army of Israel (AOI) in Utah.
The Army of Israel is a White Power group based on Christian Identity
near Zion National Park. Focusing on the group's family life and
their leader, Johnny Bangerter, a proud father of four beautiful White
children, the show did justice to skinheads and White Power people
The AOI is a loose-knit group of several families centered around
the Bangerter family. Founded by Johnny Bangerter and his sister
Mary-Lynn, the group is making a presence for White Power and White
Power skinheads in Utah. The group stresses good family life and
educates their own children. Founded on the Christian Identity religion,
there are roughly 50 direct "members" and an untold number of supporters.
The AOI also has a Skinhead band called CIS, for Christian Identity
Skins. This band is one of the better White Power bands in the United
States. They play at numerous private parties, clubs and were also one
of the featured bands at last year's Aryan Fest in Los Angeles.
Also interviewed to counter the CIS/AOI story was Floyd "Pretty Boy"
Cochran. Mr. Cochran was a former Aryan Nations security guard who
turned against the White race, because of this, the media parades him
around as an "expert" on the White movement. Contrary to usual, Mr.
Cochran was quite factual in his review of Christian Identity and
White Power Skins in general. Also interviewed was Rabbi Abraham
Cooper of the Biet Hashoah Museum of Tolerance, a veritable "house of
pain" in Los Angeles, where one can pay to be indoctrinated in the Jewish
opinion of what hate is all about. As usual, it centers on their own
perpetual victim status. Why Mr. Cooper was interviewed is uncertain
although the media always goes to a Jewish "expert" when considering
any discussion of White Power. Perhaps it was because he ran the
museum's spy network which tracks all of the White Power groups across
Johnny Bangerter, a man obviously driven by a fierce love for and
determination to safeguard his people, showed himself to be a dedicated
and caring leader in this interview. Showing his fierce opposition to
the Federal Government, and his willingness to fight Federal agents
working against the White race, Johnny said "I'll deliver them a
high-speed subpoena and they WILL show up in court." Yeah, Yahweh's
court. Keep up the good work Johnny and Mary-Lynn!
