   "...Christian Identity .. was founded in the late eighteenth century
   by a man who was a lunatic. His name was Richard Brothers. On a
   certain date in 1795, Brothers prophesied that God would come down
   from His throne in heaven and proclaim Brothers 'prince of the
   Hebrews,' because he was God's nephew. God, it turned out, doesn't
   practice nepotism, and He never got around to proclaiming Brothers
   anything, but that didn't stop the prophet or his followers. As the
   theology developed, its basic truth became that the Jews could not be
   the remnants of the Biblical nation of Israel. Rather, the Western
   Europeans (or, in some versions, the Anglo-Saxons alone - Brothers
   was English) held that singular honor. They were the true lost
   tribes, and some of them had trooped over to the New World, which was
   also the New Eden. Brothers' teaching, therefore, invested Aryans
   with the Biblical mantle of righteousness that the Jews had usurped
   with their claim of being the Chosen People.

   For about a century, Christian Identity teaching was forgotten, only
   to be resurrected in California - where these kinds of things do tend
   to get resurrected - during the early days of the civil rights
   movement by an emotionally disturbed Methodist minister named Wesley
   Swift, who added some flourishes of his own to Brothers' doctrine.
   According to Swift, the Jews not only aren't the natural heirs to
   Israel but are, in actuality, the sons of Cain, who himself was the
   product of a love affair between Satan and Eve while Adam wasn't
   looking. Cain's children subsequently hied themselves off to the
   woods, where they mated with animals to produce the lowly non-white
   or 'mud people.'

   After accomplishing that remarkable feat, the Jews went on (just as
   the Nazis put it) to bring about virtually all the evil the world has
   known, through for some reason they didn't really get their act
   together until the nineteenth century, when they came up with
   Marxism, went on to foster the American Civil War (the wrong side
   won) and every major war since, with the forces of darkness
   continuing to win, as with the Allied victory in World War II. When
   not busy being communists and international bankers (viciously
   plotting to do Midwest farmers out of their land), the Jews took time
   off to bring us the mortally dangerous "Dear Abby" column, the "Have
   a good day" greeting, which is a Jewish code signal to slaughter
   Aryans, and those strange check-out markings found on packages of
   food in the supermarket. The Jews' ultimate goal, however, was not to
   put the mark of Cain on Ivory soap, but rather to mongrelize the
   Aryan race out of existence, thereby depriving it of its New Eden.

   This was being accomplished at the present time by encouraging
   interracial marriages and by 'financing the blacks to take over most
   of our major cities,' according to a Christian Identity "church" in
   Arkansas calling itself The Covenant, Sword and Arm of the Lord. Most
   of the CSA members were survivalists, who supported themselves on an
   encampment of several hundred acres by selling guns and offering a
   "Christian martial arts" course in urban warfare, even though they
   claimed their only goal was to live in peace in the wilderness. At
   its height, the CSA membership was probably less than a hundred.
