White Supremacists React to Sikh Temple Shootings

Since the Sikh tem­ple shoot­ing in Wis­con­sin on August 5, reac­tions from Amer­i­can white suprema­cists have var­ied widely, from deplor­ing the shoot­ings to prais­ing the shooter, Wade Michael Page.

Early responses occurred before white suprema­cists learned the shooter was a long-time white suprema­cist.  Many reac­tions expressed con­cern that the mass shoot­ing would prompt calls for gun con­trol. Oth­ers were unhappy with the tar­get.  “I have to say that Sikhs are the least objec­tion­able non-White immi­grant group in North Amer­ica by far!!” wrote one poster on the white suprema­cist dis­cus­sion forum Storm­front.   Another Storm­fron­ter agreed:  “There’s so many legit­i­mate ene­mies, it’s just so stu­pid to pick Sikhs.”  A poster to the Van­guard News Net­work (VNN) asked, “Why get focused on Sikhs?  Just weird.  Very spe­cific turd in a giant sewer…Our worst ene­mies are jews and white trai­tors.  If you aren’t fight­ing them, you just aren’t living.”

Oth­ers made crude jokes, as did this Storm­fron­ter from Wis­con­sin:  “In a related story, sev­eral gas sta­tions and con­ve­nience stores in the Mil­wau­kee area have put out Help Wanted signs.”

Soon, how­ever, white suprema­cists learned of Page’s extrem­ist past, prompt­ing a gen­eral attempt at dis­tanc­ing them­selves.  Some claimed the shoot­ing was not rep­re­sen­ta­tive of white suprema­cists.  Oth­ers thought it was poor tar­get­ing.  “He…never learned the cru­cial les­son,” posted one Storm­fron­ter.  “Don’t attack the symp­toms, attack the cause.”  A VNN poster opined that “I don’t mind the mas­sacres so much as the sheer idiocy of those doing the shoot­ing, the ran­dom thought­less­ness of their tar­gets.  If they are going to go out in a blaze of glory then they should at least attempt to select more polit­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant tar­gets instead of mean­ing­less indi­vid­u­als.”  Many expressed fear of a back­lash against the white suprema­cist movement.

Oth­ers, how­ever, thought of Page as a mar­tyr to the cause.  “See you in Val­halla, brother,” posted Zach But­ler, a North Car­olina white suprema­cist, to his Face­book pro­file.  One Orange County based white power music band, Armed and Ready, posted to its Face­book page:  “R.I.P. Brother Wade, out with a whim­per or out with a bang, it’s your choice.”

These sorts of sen­ti­ments appeared espe­cially pop­u­lar among mem­bers and sup­port­ers of the Ham­mer­skins, the large racist skin­head group of which Page was a mem­ber.   “For Wade, the fight goes on,” posted one Idaho Ham­mer­skin to Face­book.  “R.I.P. brother, you’ll be missed!” wrote another.  “RIP, Wade, U were one hell of a white patriot,” posted Robert Kopko, a Florida Ham­mer­skin.  Sev­eral days later, he announced that he was “gonna go out with some broth­ers an[d] have a cou­ple drinks for a fallen patriot.”  Another Florida Ham­mer­skin wrote that “I miss my good friend WADE!  HAIL WADE!!”

A Hater Until The End: The Last Messages of J.T. Ready

White suprema­cist and anti-immigration extrem­ist J. T. Ready took his life in hor­rific and tragic fash­ion on Wednes­day, killing four oth­ers, includ­ing an infant, before shoot­ing him­self in the Phoenix, Ari­zona, sub­urb of Gilbert. Though the inves­ti­ga­tion is ongo­ing, police believe that Ready ini­ti­ated the mur­der­ous spree of domes­tic violence. 

The Anti-Defamation League has uncov­ered Ready’s final on-line mes­sages, reveal­ing that, even in the final hours before he took his own life and the lives of those clos­est to him, he was busy spew­ing hatred and anti-Semitism. Early in the morn­ing of Wednes­day, May 2, the day of the mas­sacre, Ready posted a steady stream of mes­sages to the video host­ing site YouTube as well as to the white suprema­cist mes­sage forum Stormfront.

These mes­sages from Ready drip with heavy-handed racism and anti-Semitism. “Hitler was right,” Ready responded (post­ing under his screen name of USBor­der­Guard) on YouTube to a com­ment from a British user. “And if you are too stu­pid to see that then you deserve to get pushed off your island into the sea by a bunch of for­eign­ers. Jews like Jack Straw have sold you down the river[,] mate.”

In another post, he opined, “Too bad trai­tors from within are sell­ing the UK down the drain and let­ting Pakis in at home to destroy the British race once and for good. I hope the sol­diers revolt and take back their island from the scum.”

In response to a video of jour­nal­ist Mike Wal­lace inter­view­ing Mor­gan Free­man about Black His­tory Month, Ready asserted that “Jews are not White. They hate White peo­ple. [T]hey geno­cide Whites from the planet.” He also repeated this opin­ion in another post in response to a dif­fer­ent video: “The Jew par­a­sites want to geno­cide Whites from the planet in order to enslave the rest of the races. All races should unite against this evil.”

Ready also posted to the hate site Storm­front at this time, though after the shoot­ing spree that site’s mod­er­a­tors deleted his account. How­ever, through Google caches or in responses from other posters who sub­se­quently quoted Ready’s mes­sages, his final com­ments on Storm­front could still be unearthed.

Not sur­pris­ingly, these posts also revealed his obses­sion with anti-Semitism. In them, Ready responded to news that five anar­chists had been arrested in Cleve­land for allegedly attempt­ing to destroy a bridge. Ready seemed con­vinced that Jews were involved, either as per­pe­tra­tors or as plot­ters in the gov­ern­ment cre­at­ing a set-up. “Have [the anar­chists] not yet fig­ured out,” he asked, “that they are both just tools in the same glob­al­ist tyranny toolbox?”

To another poster, who expressed doubt as to whether or not the anar­chist sus­pects were Jew­ish, he responded: “Learn what a Jew looks like[,] then you won’t be so Jew­blind. Call­ing a Jew a ‘hip­ster,’ [C]hristian, athe­ist, Bud­dhist, com­mu­nist, cap­i­tal­ist, lib­eral, con­ser­v­a­tive, trai­tor, patriot, crim­i­nal, saint, demo­c­rat, repub­li­can, or any­thing else…still does not change the racial fact that a JEW is a JEW!”

Online Racism and Anti-Semitism in the Aftermath of Trayvon Martin Shooting

The fatal shoot­ing of Trayvon Mar­tin, who was killed by a neigh­bor­hood watch vol­un­teer, George Zim­mer­man, has led to a flurry of racist and anti-Semitic remarks from extrem­ists try­ing to exploit the inci­dent to fur­ther their own hate­ful views. The remarks have been directed at both the vic­tim and the shooter.
White suprema­cists are furi­ous that Zim­mer­man, whose mother is report­edly Latino, is being described as a white man by the main­stream media.
An exam­ple of a Stormfront

In an arti­cle posted to the white suprema­cist Coun­sel of Con­ser­v­a­tive Cit­i­zens (CofCC) Web site, the author asserted, “Each time you see a ‘main­stream’ news out­let rant about the Zimmerman/Martin case…ask your­self why the media is called Zim­mer­man a white man instead of a Latino. Ask your­self if you think the story is really news or is it agitation/propaganda designed to advance a polit­i­cal agenda.”

Sim­i­larly, posters to the white suprema­cist Inter­net forum Storm­front, expressed both racist and anti-Semitic views. For exam­ple, “Thule Seeker” asserted, “[Zim­mer­man] can do us another favor by get­ting his jew-bean ass thrown in prison. Every­one always blames Whites for being racist but now the shoe is on the other foot. It will be nice for jews, beans and/or jew­beans to see one of their own go to prison for the very thing that us Whites are always accused of.”

Another Storm­front mem­ber, using the name “Richard Nixon,” wrote: “The anti-white Jew media will still try to spin this in an anti-white angle. And, of course, Blacks will find an excuse to riot, loot, a [sic] wreak over­all havoc.”

On yet another white suprema­cist forum, Van­guard News Net­work, “Craig Cobb” wrote, “Ha ha the lying media calls a pos­si­ble jew spic mix a ‘white’ just like the annual DOJ UNi­form Crime Report files do! Prob­a­bly in about 10 more years George Zim­mer­man will be as White in Amer­ica as it gets–like our elite ver­sion of an Ice­landic pale blue eyed plat­inum blonde.”

Some white suprema­cists, while describ­ing Zim­mer­man in racist terms, lauded him for killing a black teen. On Storm­front, “Thin White Duke” argued, “Zim­mer­man should be praised as much as any mes­tizo in Amer­ica should. Putting white nation­al­ism aside for a moment, this man removed a vio­lent per­son from a neigh­bor­hood vol­un­tar­ily. If only we had more whites patrolling our neigh­bor­hoods and keep­ing the negroes in check like this mes­tizo did.”

Another Storm­front mem­ber, “Ref­er­ence,” asserted, “Let’s don’t get bogged down in Zimmerman’s eth­nic­ity. Zim put down negri­tude while his neigh­bor ran into the house, locked the doors and called 911 — a com­pletely use­less neigh­bor IMO.”
