Well, that’s a start.

Two men have been removed from the Army National Guard after activists revealed that they are members of a religious group with ties to white supremacy.
An Alabama National Guard spokesperson confirmed to The Hill that they are currently investigating Brandon Trent East, but that it could not comment on ongoing investigations.
“The Alabama National Guard is committed to being an organization that is characterized by equity and inclusion and one that is reflective of this great nation we represent, where all individuals have dignity and worth,” the spokesperson said.
East told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the Alabama National Guard sent him a separation notice earlier this month. A spokesperson for the Georgia National Guard said Dalton Woodward is also no longer a member, The Associated Press reported.
The activist group Atlanta Antifacists published a report earlier this year finding that East and Woodward were leaders in the Norse pagan group Ravensblood Kindred. The group is part of the Asatru Folk Assembly, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has deemed a hate group.
Haralson County Sheriff Eddie Mixon also forced East to resign as a jailer, the AP reported.
To be clear they only kicked out two individuals from the Alabama National Guard for being linked to white supremacy.
Did I mention that this is the ALABAMA National Guard?
I mean come on, you could not throw a rock in the Alabama National Guard chow hall without hitting at least one white supremacist.
I’m not saying that they should not continue to try and remove these foks, I am just saying that they may have to alter their investigation technique if they are truly going to shit can all of the racists.
