Face of Hate: Curtis Allgier explained

When neo-Nazi Curtis Allgier allegedly shot and killed a corrections officer who was transporting Allgier to a hospital in Salt Lake City June 25, media accounts of the murder invariably focused on the 27-year-old skinhead’s most recent mug shot, showing Allgier’s totally tattoo-covered face. As his wife put it, Allgier had the “courage to put his beliefs on his entire body.”

Here’s an explanation of the meaning behind some the arcane symbols inked on the alleged cop-killer’s visage:

Crucified Skinhead (right temple) – The image of a skinhead on a cross symbolizes the persecution of working-class skinheads by the upper class.

Three Intersecting Triangles (left jaw) – This symbol is known as a valknut or volknut. Among non-racist pagans, it’s a sign of the afterlife and a binding of the soul to Odin, chief among the Norse gods. Among racist pagans, it signifies “that one is ready to be taken into the ranks of Odin’s chosen warriors.”

5150 (under the right eye) – A likely reference to the California statute that allows people to be involuntarily committed to a mental hospital if they are deemed to be a danger to themselves or others, according to Mark Pitcavage of the Anti-Defamation League.

Hatebreed (upper lip) – Hatebreed is a hardcore punk band popular among racist skinheads.

Iron Crosses (forehead temples) – A German military decoration dating to the early 19th century that was made famous by the Nazis.

SS Lightning Bolts (cheekbones) – A symbol of the Schutzstaffel (“Protective Squadron”), or SS, the Nazi police force that administered the death camps and staffed the mobile killing units known as Einsatzgruppen. After the war, the entire SS was declared a criminal organization by the Nuremburg judges.

Blood, Honor, and Loyalty (collarbone) – A phrase used heavily by racist skinheads and other neo-Nazis in rock lyrics, clothing and tattoos.

Can you tell me where on this site I can find the images of IRA or Islamic terrorists, or perhaps some gun toting blacks butchering white South African farmers?

You do yourself a great diservice by pointing out just one form of extremism or do you approve of those I pointed out above?

Murder is murder and extremists can be found in ANY and ALL political/religious/economic/racialgroups.

Going completely off topic, you missed out the next two figures for the chop in your poll.

Who are they and why do you think they're due for the chop?

Awwww, you're so funny but I hate to disapoint you. I don't have any brothers or sisters who are alive.

Zero regards

PS Why are you posing as a member of UAF?

People like you are just another reason to be glad to have ditched the BNP. I'd like you to continue though as all these postings will be appearing in ALL our leaflets to awaken the public into not voting BNP.

Give my Zero Regards to Hannam and Walker and tell them it couldn't have happened to two nastier people :-)

Zero Zero Regards

'Why are you posing as a member of UAF?'

It's obviously escaped your notice but you don't have to be a member of UAF to post here. Or are you a secret supporter?

No, I'm not a secret supporter. And, I'm not posing as a member of UAF which is something Mr Fister confuses from time to time.

The answer is obvious: Ebanks has no morals. Either as a black woman, or as a fascist.

Sorry, "Shazza" who should I post as?

As for saying your sister is dead, you really are a shameless tramp.

You've now besmirched your entire family.

So, Mr. Fister, you have something nasty to say...this time about Sharon Ebanks.

Is ir relevant to 'anti fascism' as a whole? Well, marginally I suppose, as Ebanks is defined by some as a 'fascist'.

But that is not why you are posting these things is it?

We all know ALREADY (get it? ALREADY...it means we do not need squalid shit fancier to tell us again) about Sharon Ebanks parentage - the claim that her father was a west indian and her claim that her father was a short term lover of her mother.

Mr. Nasty Little Loser more like it.

Now go and clean your raincoat while you think of something useful to say.

Anonymous said...

suppose the question must be asked WHY is Ebanks posting here? when i understand she has a site of her own to do her dirty washing on.

and as for BLACKENING her family name "well that says it all really".

im sure Lydia will be very surprised to read that she is dead.

bickelstaff said...

About the bloke in the picture.
I thought the whole point was to have white skin. You would think he was ashamed of it in attempting to cover it in black tattoos.

observer said...

It's felt-tip pens that do that.

He washes it off when he goes to bed!

"the claim that her father was a west indian and her claim that her father was a short term lover of her mother."

Radwell Ebanks isn't my father, why don't you ask his family instead of listening to the press and a silly old lady he married with half a story?

Short term lover! Hardly, they were married for 6 months before parting. Nowerdays that constitutes a lifetime :-)

Why don't you get this Lydia person to come and meet me if she's convinced she is my sister :-)

You silly little man.

My address can be found on the Internet, tell her to contact me. Is she like the man who Bob Hayward of the Sunday Mercury found? I didn't know him either. I'm also not related to General Colin Powell and my sons father isn't Pakistani but don't let that get in the way of a good story :-)

Hahahahahahahaha

Poor old Sharon's gone into over drive on this one.

Asked to actually produce her birth certificate, Sharon refused to. Now when it is of no longer of importance she wants to string this conversation out even further.

Why not just post it Sharon, and be done with?

Sharon's sister Lydia knows where Sharon lives, but does not go there anymore because Sharon is "obviously mental."

Sharon has not been to work for so long, why...........??

A right-whinge activist with a non-white parent? Surely not? That would be like a party leader who rant against homosexuals having gay secrets in his past.....

For the record, Hatebreed are a totally non-racist band, and don't support racists nor racism in anyway, shape or form.

Does anyone know what "F.U.N." is referring to? The tattoo is on his chin, and I can't find an explanation for it.

Wood's Bitch said...

F.U.N. is an abbreviation for "Fuck you nigger"...have a nice day!

Hatebreed is not racist nor do they support racism. Like, at all. This guy getting a Hatebreed tattoo just means he's an idiot.
