The 'Olsen twins' of the White Pride movement

"We're proud of being white, we want to keep being white. We want our people to stay white … we don't want to just be, you know, a big muddle. We just want to preserve our race."
-- Thirteen-year-old Lynx Gaede, who, with her sister Lamb, are white nationalist singing group "Prussian Blue"
Oy, this is sad and sick. It makes you want to hurl. (ABC):
The girls from Bakersfield, Calif., have been performing songs about white nationalism before all-white crowds since they were nine.

...Lynx and Lamb have been nurtured on racist beliefs since birth by their mother April. "They need to have the background to understand why certain things are happening," said April, a stay-at-home mom who no longer lives with the twins' father. "I'm going to give them, give them my opinion just like any, any parent would."

April home-schools the girls, teaching them her own unique perspective on everything from current to historical events. In addition, April's father surrounds the family with symbols of his beliefs — specifically the Nazi swastika. It appears on his belt buckle, on the side of his pick-up truck and he's even registered it as his cattle brand with the Bureau of Livestock Identification.

...Songs like "Sacrifice" — a tribute to Nazi Rudolf Hess, Hitler's deputy Fuhrer — clearly show the effect of the girls' upbringing. The lyrics praise Hess as a "man of peace who wouldn't give up."
This sorry story reminds me of the horror of seeing children parading around at Westboro Baptist Church protests. This is what happens when children are infused with hate from day one. And they worry about gays having a negative impact on kids? Parents like the Gaedes and the Phelps clan are the real threat.
