Extremists Claim Oregon Shooting Is Sign of White Genocide

The tragic shoot­ing at Umpqua Com­mu­nity Col­lege in Rose­burg, Ore­gon, in which a gun­man killed nine peo­ple and wounded a num­ber of oth­ers, elicited a strong response among a sam­pling of extrem­ists. When the media released infor­ma­tion that the shooter, 26-year-old Chris Harper Mer­cer, had listed him­self as “mixed race” on an online dat­ing pro­file, white suprema­cists called his actions a form of “white genocide.”

White suprema­cists were also quick to reject some media reports that said the gun­man had white suprema­cist lean­ings. They claimed the gun­man was moti­vated by hatred of whites and Chris­tians. They also blamed Jews for every­thing from encour­ag­ing blacks to kill whites to down­play­ing the story once the shooter turned out to be non-white.

Since Mer­cer had expressed an inter­est in online post­ings in Vester Flana­gan, a black for­mer reporter who shot and killed two white ex-colleagues, posters on Storm­front, the largest white suprema­cist Inter­net forum,  pro­moted the idea that blacks were tar­get­ing whites en masse. One poster called Mer­cer and Flana­gan “anti-white terrorists.”

Oth­ers on the site focused on Mercer’s mixed race her­itage as the cause of his actions. One poster wrote that “light-skinned blacks are the most racist of all. They hate their white blood with a pas­sion.” Another per­son post­ing as “White Nation­hood” claimed that Mercer’s “inter­est in the left-hand path [a ref­er­ence to the occult and black magic] plus racial anx­i­eties prob­a­bly fueled his anti-white, anti-Christian mas­sacre.” Still another wrote, “Half castes secretly wish to be white, the denial of this godly priv­i­lege makes mulat­toes insane.”

Some posters on Storm­front saw the shoot­ing as an indi­ca­tion that whites need to take action to arm them­selves or live sep­a­rately from non-whites. Some­one post­ing as “14 words of truth” wrote that the reac­tion to the shoot­ing would be “many armed men world wide bring­ing jus­tice to the guilty.” The per­son added, “All that vio­lence could be avoided by halt­ing white geno­cide and allow­ing white folk to live within our own nations in peace.”

“Ten­niel” had sim­i­lar sen­ti­ments, writ­ing, “Given the open war­fare being now per­pe­trated against Whites by non­whites, par­tic­u­larly negroes, in Amer­ica, it is vital that White peo­ple be able to be ARMED AT ALL TIMES IN ALL LOCATIONS IN AMERICA.”

Many of the posters on Storm­front blamed Jews for the shoot­ing. One poster declared, “White geno­cide is real and there is always a filthy jew [sic] behind it.” “Laidbackguy71” wrote, “Don’t let the Jews jive ya because they are the ones with blood on their hands for all of this.” Another poster claimed, “The jews [sic] keep try­ing to brain­wash peo­ple that race mix­ing is love and a demon­stra­tion of tol­er­ance and equal­ity. It is the worst thing a par­ent can do to a child.”

Still oth­ers claimed that the shoot­ing would lead to gun con­trol and dis­arm­ing the pop­u­la­tion. A poster on another white suprema­cist Inter­net forum, Van­guard News Net­work, wrote, “It doesn’t mat­ter this was a gun-free zone or that the shooter was a mulatto. Tal­mu­dic media won’t report this any­way! What mat­ters is that this story, along with oth­ers before, will be exploited to enter­tain a men­tal­ity that ulti­mately, leads towards dis­arm­ing Amer­i­can people.”

Ann Coulter Admiration Grows Among White Supremacists

Ann Coulter

Ann Coul­ter

When polit­i­cal pun­dit Ann Coul­ter made dis­parag­ing com­ments on Twit­ter claim­ing that pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates were pan­der­ing to the Jew­ish com­mu­nity and ques­tioned some can­di­dates’ focus on Israel dur­ing the CNN Repub­li­can debate on Sep­tem­ber 16, white suprema­cists and anti-Semites were glee­ful that she took on what they call “the Jew­ish ques­tion.” Extrem­ists believe that Coul­ter was expos­ing alleged “Jew­ish power” in this country.

This is not the first time that extrem­ists have lauded Coul­ter for her views. Extrem­ists have been talk­ing about Coul­ter for a num­ber of years on Storm­front, the largest white suprema­cist Inter­net forum.

While there are myr­iad opin­ions about Coul­ter, she has become increas­ingly pop­u­lar among extrem­ists who see her as a voice for white nation­al­ism or at least some­one who might influ­ence con­ser­v­a­tives to move toward white nation­al­ist views.

Coul­ter does not have any ties to the white suprema­cists who sup­port her but what she says on issues such as immi­gra­tion or demo­graph­ics often res­onates with them.

There are gen­er­ally three extrem­ist per­spec­tives about Coul­ter: 1) that she is actu­ally a white nation­al­ist who is bring­ing that cause to the wider pub­lic; 2) that she has some good points but should not be embraced because she doesn’t deal with the “Jew­ish ques­tion” (at least until the debate took place), and 3) that she is a neo­con­ser­v­a­tive who is not to be trusted.

Virginia Shootings Spur White Supremacist Vitriol

Within hours of the deadly August 26 on-air shoot­ing of tele­vi­sion reporter Ali­son Parker and cam­era­man Adam Ward in Roanoke, Vir­ginia, the on-line white suprema­cist world erupted in hate­ful rhetoric and dis­cus­sions of violence.vamurderscomment

The shooter, Vester Flana­gan (also known as Bryce Williams), was some­one whom white suprema­cists could eas­ily exploit to gen­er­ate anger. His vic­tims were white; Flana­gan was a black, gay man with a his­tory of fil­ing dis­crim­i­na­tion com­plaints against for­mer employ­ers, includ­ing the tele­vi­sion sta­tion where the slain jour­nal­ists worked.

Flana­gan killed him­self as police caught up to him, but not before he faxed to ABC News a lengthy sui­cide note/manifesto, detail­ing a litany of griev­ances and per­ceived mis­treat­ment because of his race and sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion. More­over, in his note he directly ref­er­enced the June 2015 Charleston shoot­ings, in which white suprema­cist Dylann Storm Roof killed nine African-American church­go­ers. Flana­gan tried to explain his murders—seemingly com­mit­ted for per­sonal reasons—as a retal­i­a­tion for Roof’s own killings. Refer­ring to Roof’s hope that a race war would result from his shoot­ings, Flana­gan wrote “You want a race war…THEN BRING IT.”

Reac­tions from the racist right were swift and involved well-worn anti-black and anti-Semitic tropes. Among them: that black peo­ple shouldn’t be allowed to own guns, because they have “no impulse con­trol,” and that the vic­tims, as mem­bers of the “Jew­ish media,” deserved to die. And above all, an echo of Roof’s call for race war: The hope that the shoot­ings would spark a “rev­o­lu­tion” of whites ris­ing up against their osten­si­ble oppres­sors (blacks and Jews) and strik­ing back.

The New Order, a small Wisconsin-based neo-Nazi group, pre­sented a typ­i­cal anti-black response, issu­ing a state­ment head­lined “White Lives Mat­ter” that described the shoot­ings as a crime com­mit­ted by “a deranged anti-White Negro” and claimed that “The mur­der, rape and assault of White peo­ple by racist Black crim­i­nals is a daily event in the United States.”

Anti-Semitism shaped the responses of many white suprema­cists. On Storm­front, the large white suprema­cist dis­cus­sion forum, poster Red­Baron claimed that reporter Parker “was part of the Jew con­trolled media. The pro­pa­ganda she helped to put on the air came back to haunt her (to death).” The “Jew­ish plot” trope was repeated by another Storm­fron­ter: “I don’t think the Jew power struc­ture wants a fully awake white pub­lic right now. They’ve been doing every­thing to drug us into a stu­por as they incite blacks to mur­der us.”

At the neo-Nazi web­site Daily Stormer, poster GuiMas­ter also had lit­tle sym­pa­thy for Parker: “But how do we know that this woman was ‘noble?’ She was work­ing for the anti-White media. How aware was she that her job involves spread­ing com­mu­nist anti-White hate pro­pa­ganda?” On Face­book, another white suprema­cist labeled Parker’s father, who had appeared on Fox News to plead for more gun con­trol mea­sures, a “Zio-Marxist” push­ing a “Jew­ish” agenda.

For many white suprema­cists, though, it was Flanagan’s ref­er­ence to “race war” that most exer­cised them. For them, the sole bright spot in the killings was that they might speed the start of an antic­i­pated racial con­flict. At the Daily Stormer, for exam­ple, one com­menter wrote: “When the ‘race war’ comes, it’s gonna be us killing them in short order.”

On Storm­front, long­time Arkansas white suprema­cist Billy Roper hoped the killings would “awaken more of our peo­ple to see it as the reprisal act it was in a war which is just begin­ning, in fits and starts, as they so often do.” Mean­while, on the Face­book page of “Amer­i­can White His­tory Month,” Jon Winslow wrote: “White peo­ple! Start riot­ing now!”

Oth­ers seemed inter­ested in actions more seri­ous that riot­ing. Storm­front poster 14words_of_truth wrote: “Peo­ple keep ask­ing me ‘when is the race war going to start?’ It started a long time ago; it is not going to start, it is going to change. The change will be that the White Man will start fight­ing back.”

To which Storm­front edi­tor Jack­Boot replied, “Well said. So far we can’t esca­late from the war of words on our side, and that esca­la­tion is long past due. They’ve been spilling our blood for years, and I’m not talk­ing only about the Jews’ prox­ies. We got a lotta catch-up to play.”
