Did Medical Cannabis Cure The Gaede Girls Of Their Neo-Nazism?
The neo-nazis of the 21st century have been making disturbing inroads amidst the upheavals of late stage capitalism. In Greece, for example, Golden Dawn surprised a lot of people in recent elections:
Boasting close to half a million votes in recent elections, the extreme right wing party gained 21 seats in parliament. It was a first for Greece, the country that invented democracy and resisted the advance of fascism.
Before the vote, few took Golden Dawn seriously, explains one Greek student. But scores of young men started canvassing for the party months ago.
With security concerns rife as the Greek economy hangs in the balance of convoluted European Union debt negotiations, burly young Dawn members escorted select Athenians to ATMs, providing security for people wanting to pull their money out of Greek banks.
“Once in parliament, we will implement our program,” Yannis Vourdis, Golden Dawn’s political director, told CBS News.
Closer to home, the infamous blonde-haired Gaede sisters, who performed music under the name Prussian Blue (named after a byproduct of the poison used to gas jews) recently made headlines. It appears, thanks to medical cannabis, that the girls have begun to challenge their nazi indoctrination. From the link:
Their childhood saw them home-schooled in Bakersfield, California, by their mother April Gaede, herself a member of racist fringe groups the National Alliance and the National Vanguard. Her own father, Bill Gaede, wore a swastika belt buckle and even branded his cattle with the sign, The Mirror revealed.
But now aged 20 and having experienced a string of health problems including cancer, the girls say they’re embracing a hippy lifestyle – with the help of marijuana.
Both girls have Montana-issued medical marijuana cards and describe themselves as “healers”.
In 2011, Lynx exclusively told The Daily: “I have to say, marijuana saved my life. I’d probably be dead if I didn’t have it.”
Lamb added: “We just wanna exert the most love and positivity we can.”
In the same interview Lamb describes herself as “pretty liberal”, while Lynx chipped in with: “Personally, I love diversity! I’m stoked that we have so many different cultures.”
While these two girls have hopefully left their dangerous indoctrination behind, the inland Northwest is still a region that has plenty of problems with neo-nazis, white supremacists, and sovereign citizens hell-bent on using terrorist tactics to further their cause.
Remember, in January of 2011, a bomb intended to kill participants of a MLK parade in Spokane was discovered. That same year, David Burgert, one of the founding members of the Project 7 militia, fired shots at Sheriff Deputies in Lolo, sparking a manhunt that still has yet to produce this dangerous right-wing extremist.
There is still plenty to be concerned about in this region regarding right-wing domestic terrorism, but at least these two little brainwashed Neo-Nazis have begun turning their back on the hate they were raised on. If medical cannabis was a contributing factor, then just add that to the long list of benefits this plant is already known to produce.
