As for the ARA turds, they're invariably the ones responsible for any violence that takes place at these events -- but of course the aforementioned Guardians of Law 'n' Order always look the other way when they throw the batteries and the piss balloons because the whiggers are acting as Red Guards for the Jew-controlled gub'ment, doing what it can't get away with yet in attacking racially awakened Whites.

One fine day these body-pierced, goateed pussies will be the guests of honor at a nationwide necktie party. Of that I am certain.

By the way: I'm not a skinhead, but as you may have surmised, I am a racist -- just like my namesake and the Founding Fathers before him.

Pure and simpleminded: Hats off to David Holthouse for having the courage to do the undercover plunge into one of the most infiltrator-wary sects of American society. Many of us view modern-day Nazis with the same sort of detached fascination and horror we reserve for Hollywood bad guys, and thus his real-life experience mingling amongst the members of this movement must have been surreal.

I've sporadically studied the neo-Nazi/white-supremacy movement over the years, and its core ideologies are certainly intriguing from a sociological and psychological standpoint. The concept that all of society's problems and imperfections come down to the simple issue of purity (racial purity) can be incredibly compelling to those who feel trapped in a world wrought with disorder and dysfunction. Plus, the creation of an enemy feeds directly into humankind's classic "Us vs. Them" mentality, where the lines are clearly drawn to allow the "blame" to be placed at someone else's feet, instead of our own.

I've often pondered what the world would truly be like if this movement, through some unfathomable chain of events, actually managed to fulfill its goals of eliminating all the "inferior" races of this planet and establishing its ideal worldwide Aryan society. In truth, the attainment of this far-fetched Valhallian utopia would never bring the joy and sense of finality they so desire. A people who focus on racial perfection (and flaws) with the scrutiny of a diamond polisher would inevitably turn such laserbeam concentration on themselves, seeking to further rid their new society of anyone who didn't meet higher and higher standards of purity (e.g., those of Norwegian heritage claiming superiority over those of Czech or Irish ancestry).

Editor's note: In "White Noise," David Holthouse reported that the Anti-Defamation League assists local chapters of the radical Anti-Racist Action in organizing disruptions of Nazi skinhead gatherings, such as the Rocky Mountain Heritage Fest. But according to a statement subsequently issued by ADL National Director of Fact Finding Mark Pitcavage, "the ADL has no association, official or otherwise, with Anti-Racist Action.... The ADL does not believe in the validity or merit of using confrontational tactics."

Green acres: Just a note to thank Jason Sheehan for his favorable and on-target mention of one of my favorite Mexican joints, Taqueria Patzcuaro ("On the Road," July 25). Because of its location off of Federal, many suburbanites (and Denverites) would pass it by, and I could enjoy the food quietly among the neighborhood locals. Hopefully, I can still find a place to park among the SUVs that will certainly appear.

Also, I am happy to welcome Jason to Denver and Westword. So far, I like his style and honesty. His introductory bio in the July 18 Bite Me was a nice thing to do, and helpful in letting me know his tastes and expectations.

Bean and nothingness: I was wondering if Jason Sheehan can use up more space to write about a car and places in New Mexico and not in Denver, save the last couple of paragraphs. This wasn't a restaurant review: It was a dissertation on nothing.

Drive, she said: Muchas gracias, Gomez! I must say the July 25 Cafe article was truly delicious! Being an Albuquerque native, you returned me to my homeland, and brought tears to my eyes just thinking about my days in college at NMSU, the Whole Enchilada Festival each fall, Chope's Bar in Mesilla, the Hatch Chile Festival, and actually being able to order green chile on your pizza! Jalapeños are blasphemous! No one outside the state can ever truly comprehend the conviction we have for those little chiles. Thank you for pursuing your search here in Denver, and teasing my homesick tastebuds. It is refreshing to know there really is hope here! Long live Gomez!
