Neo-Nazi Leader Investigated for Allegedly Intimidating Juror

By Larry Keller on October 17, 2008 - 2:08 pm, Posted in Anti-Black, Anti-Semitic, Neo-Nazi

Federal agents, digging for possible evidence to charge neo-Nazi provocateur Bill White with threatening a juror, have seized computer modems, servers and other equipment from a Roanoke, Va., apartment where his website is based.

The website,, has been shut down since the FBI served a search warrant on the apartment on Saturday.

The search warrant affidavit states that agents were looking for electronic files, including Web pages, E-mail messages and instant messaging chat sessions “that may contain all evidence of the crime of threatening Hale Juror A, or … any other data that shows an intent to intimidate or injure persons whose personal information has been posted in the same manner as Hale Juror A.”

White heads the American Nationalist Socialist Workers Party and lives in Roanoke. Last month, he posted on his website the name, photo, home address and three phone numbers of what he called a “Gay, Jewish anti-racist” juror he claimed was instrumental in convicting Matt Hale, then-leader of the neo-Nazi World Church of the Creator (WCOTC), of soliciting the murder of a federal judge. White even posted the name of the juror’s cat.

Hale was sentenced in 2005 to 40 years in prison for plotting to kill U.S. District Court Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow, who had ruled against WCOTC in a copyright infringement case.

White did not advocate violence against the juror. But he wrote that the juror “played a key role in convicting Hale.” He has said that a federal grand jury is investigating him over the matter.

White has previously posted contact information on his website about others who have incurred his wrath, including syndicated newspaper columnist Leonard Pitts and Mark Potok, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Project and editor of this blog.

Always bombastic, White announced plans last month for a magazine cover with presidential candidate Barack Obama seen through the crosshairs of a swastika-shaped rifle sight and the headline, “Kill This Nigger?”

    What “documents” are you referring to? Because the way I see it, you don’t seem to fully understand the fudamental concept of Americanism as founded by your founding fathers. Hence the Constitution. In other words, you don’t know moot about history….

    Our government no longer abides by it’s founding documents and is no longer legitimate.

    Therefor organized and violent resistance is justified.

    It is not just extremitsts and fringe whackos. The interenet is being used to exploit our personal privacy. Example- those “Youtube-teen-beatdowns” popping up. It wasn’t bad enough to beat the poor girl to a pulp, they had to show it to the world. Cyber crimes have been long ignored and I fear the worst should this pandemic of technological misuse goes unchecked. I wrote my Congressman to adress the issue and hopefully he takes notice.

    I think the SPLC should also investigate cyber terrorism. People like Bill White and Philip Eide need to be exposed as the terrorists they are. And I agreewith the first post; they need to be fully prosecuted.

    There is an ironic point to all of this, that Americans shall be aware of…
    These White Supremacists–Extremists are not patriotic Americans but unpatriotic Un-Americans whose insidious goals are to *OVERTHROW* the U.S. Government. Its hypocritical to the naked eye of how we all have seen White Supremacists shrouding themselves with our great American flag. Purporting to be proud Americans, yet, when its clear in their website( that they are anti-Government and anti-Law Enforcement seeking to destroy the system. These WNs and WRLs must be detested to fullest. For they shall be exposed to the masses for what they’re really are and not for what they purport to be. Hence, these White Supremacists are a sham!

    This isn’t the first time White has been in troube with the law. He had numerous run-ins in the past. Quite frankly, I doubt he`ll serve a speck of time in prison where he should have gone a long time ago. But he always seems to outwit the justice system. Remaining a free man. This sets an example for other degenerated skinheads to follow up and do the same. If Bill White can get away with his crimes, then surely the Neo-Nazis(those with a brain!) can beat the system!
    If you wish to see Justice being served, then convict the turd reicher at once.
    Moreover, if White is able to walk away free this time, then all this hype about Bill White and the FBI is a joke! Just like Hal Turner! Its only a matter of time before White will walk away and restart his bogus operations once again. So the underlying question is:

    Will the law work this time around???

    I have yet to see Bill White put away for real this time. Serving hard time much like Matt Hale. So the outcome can change–maybe Bill White wasn’t a fake White Supremacist after all.

    Bill White must be put out of business. Those who use the internet to violate people’s privacy belong in jail. I hope legislation will come soon to protect citizens from such blatant disregard to our privacy. Overturning the USA PATRIOT Act would be a good start.
