#1922: Dennis Mahon

Dennis Mahon is a white supremacist, former Klansman, and terrorist, active until 2005 when he showed an album of old pictures of himself in his Ku Klux Klan robe and proudly listed the number of places he claimed to have bombed since the early 1980s to a woman he had picked up who turned out to be an informant. The places allegedly bombed included an abortion clinic, a Jewish community center and offices of the IRS and immigration authorities. Mahon was convicted of sending a mail bomb in 2004 to a government diversity office in Scottsdale, Arizone, injuring three people.

Prior to being caught Mahon was notable as a neo-nazi and champion of – of all things – the Ba’ath party, organizing a pro-Saddam rally in Tulsa in 1991. In the KKK he attained the rank of “Imperial Dragon”, and founded the Oklahoma White Knights of the KKK in 1988, leading groups in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. He was also involved in negotiations between the Klan and the Aryan Nations. In the 1990s he joined Tom Metzger’s White Aryan Resistance. Apparently he also led a Christian identity enclave in Elohim City.

Diagnosis: Perhaps this entry ought to have been more substantial, given Mahon’s substantial role in this garbage, but we really cannot be bothered. Hopefully neutralized.
