First off, I want to welcome all of you to a brand new year, and I hope this one will be better than the last. Though, with Donald Trump soon taking office in less than a few weeks, I can’t guarantee that.
Second, I want to thank Ikeke35, the blogger behind her television-focused blog Geeking Out about It. Please be sure to check it out sometime.
With that said, Ikeke35 left a link to a page found at the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website in a comment in one of my articles. It describes how racists online are drawn like flies to the largest pile of cyber racism in the history of the internet. Stormfront. But it also points out a disturbing commonality among some of them. Apart from being pathetic losers in life, they are also killers:
A typical murderer drawn to the racist forum Stormfront.org is a frustrated, unemployed, white adult male living with his mother or an estranged spouse or girlfriend. She is the sole provider in the household. Forensic psychologists call him a “wound collector.” Instead of building his resume, seeking employment or further education, he projects his grievances on society and searches the Internet for an excuse or an explanation unrelated to his behavior or the choices he has made in life.
Funny, isn’t it? And black people are supposed to be the lazy ones. But according to the sites a racist seeks out to validate his rage, they are. While we supposedly get ‘free stuff’, white people are getting screwed even though, according to this article, they put forth little or no effort to better themselves financially. Still, they’re convinced by these hate-based sites that the white race – himself especially – is being unjustifiably screwed:
His escalation follows a predictable trajectory. From right-wing antigovernment websites and conspiracy hatcheries, he migrates to militant hate sites that blame society’s ills on ethnicity and shifting demographics. He soon learns his race is endangered — a target of “white genocide.” After reading and lurking for a while, he needs to talk to someone about it, signing up as a registered user on a racist forum where he commiserates in an echo chamber of angry fellow failures where Jews, gays, minorities and multiculturalism are blamed for everything.
So, he gets pissed off more and more, believing his race is being compromised and oppressed. He transfers the “struggle” of white people onto himself. He sees himself as a victim, a true victim.
Yet, in the midst of all the white victimhood blabbing, the angry white man is indoctrinated with white supremacist lies. He’s a member of a superior race, but is a failure at life due not because he’s a fuckup, but because of nonwhites, liberals, homosexuals, Muslims, women and – of course – Jews:
Assured of the supremacy of his race and frustrated by the inferiority of his achievements, he binges online for hours every day, self-medicating, slowly sipping a cocktail of rage. He gradually gains acceptance in this online birthing den of self-described “lone wolves,” but he gets no relief, no practical remedies, no suggestions to improve his circumstances. He just gets angrier.
And then he gets a gun.
As a side note, it’s no wonder so many pissed off poor white men were enraged that a left wing black man was elected President of the United States. They see it as a punch in the gut. And as long as he remains in office, the seething hate continues in the form of racial epithets. Check out the website Hello Racist for instance, and you will see loads of screenshots of white men (and several white women) on Facebook viciously insulting Barack Obama and his wife Michelle accompanied with racist memes and links to right wing news articles.
But as this article suggests, it gets much worse. The anger of these racists turn violent. Some have taken it upon themselves to do something about it which often leads to murder. And most of that vitriol in the internet age was fueled by radical right hate sites, Stormfront being the main attraction:
Though on any given day, fewer than 1,800 registered members log on to Stormfront, and less than half of the site’s visitors even reside in the United States, a two-year study by the Intelligence Report shows that registered Stormfront users have been disproportionately responsible for some of the most lethal hate crimes and mass killings since the site was put up in 1995. In the past five years alone, Stormfront members have murdered close to 100 people. The Report’s research shows that Stormfront’s bias-related murder rate began to accelerate rapidly in early 2009, after Barack Obama became the nation’s first black president.
The violence of many of these racists are directed at the usual targets: minorities, homosexuals, Jews and Muslims. But even their own families are not safe around these sociopaths:
On April 19, 2002, Ian Andrew Bishop, a 14-year-old so-called “Stormfront Youth” killed his brother by striking him repeatedly in the head with a claw hammer, allegedly because he thought 18-year-old Adam Bishop was gay. “He said his brother was a faggot,” said a 15-year-old witness. “He said he wanted to kill his parents, too.”
The murders would keep on coming, their frequency accelerating. On Feb. 19, 2008, James “Yankee Jim” Leshkevich, who had posted more than 5,000 times to Stormfront in the preceding four years, beat and strangled his wife to death in the living room of the home they shared in West Hurley, N.Y. Then he hung himself.
Similarly, a little over two years later, on April 21, 2010, Curtis Boone Maynard shot and killed his ex-wife outside her Lake Jackson, Texas, home. He then shot his 16-year-old stepdaughter in the face, severely wounding her, before killing himself during a subsequent police chase.

As expected, most web founders and moderators like Stormfront’s own Don Black avoid any responsibility for fueling the rage-filled resentment of their members and followers. Of course they don’t want to be associated with any violent crime like murder. But try as they might, they got herds of lost white male sheep flocking to their cause ready to turn into rams and bust some nonwhite non-Christian heads wide open even if they kill themselves. And with the election of their angry white male savior, they may be more than ever willing to lock and load for the hollow glory that is white power.
