Neo-Nazi Child Porn Enthusiast Reappears Under New Name

By Marilyn Elias on October 25, 2011 - 10:03 am, Posted in Neo-Nazi

Kevin Alfred Strom, founder of the now-defunct neo-Nazi hate group National Vanguard, apparently is trying to shuck off his former identity following release from federal prison three years ago on a child pornography conviction.

Hatewatch spotted Strom, born again as “Julian Dene,” a squeaky-clean gentleman clad in buttoned-to-the-neck white shirt, in a phony Facebook (FB) page that violates FB rules barring the use of fake names.

Could Dene be for real? There is an apparently real Julian Dene on the Internet, a blogger from Northwest England who identifies himself as a “retired semi professional photographer with a love of Victorian architecture.”

Not likely. The Facebook Dene’s photos show that that he has the very same face as Strom—and the same rogue’s gallery of friends, along with two of Strom’s children. Dene boasts 176 of them, including a number of luminaries of the radical right, the very people Strom hung out with before his child porn debacle.

Many of Strom’s old friends repudiated him after the conviction, viewing the veteran activist as a severe liability to their cause. Strom had founded National Vanguard in 2005 after being expelled from the National Alliance, the most important neo-Nazi group in the U.S. until the death of its long-time leader, William Pierce, in 2002. Strom failed in his bid to become Pierce’s successor and took hundreds of disgruntled Alliance members with him when he departed to form National Vanguard.

Strom pledged “to lay the groundwork for a healthy White nation to emerge from the chaos ahead,” lamenting on the group’s website that “no civilization has ever survived racial mixing let alone on the scale which has engulfed the U.S. since the 1960s.” Another key insight from National Vanguard: “Jewish interest groups have been at the forefront of nearly all the negative changes which have taken place in the White world during the last 100 years.”

Strom’s group never amounted to much, in part because many neo-Nazis saw him as a weak and effeminate leader. But it was utterly destroyed with Strom’s embarrassing arrest and imprisonment. Since then, Strom has stayed under the radar—until surfacing as the faux Julian Dene on Facebook.

Among the Facebook Dene’s friends, according to his page:

April Gaede:  A Kalispell, Mont., neo-Nazi activist, she’s posted countless racist and anti-Semitic screeds on websites of the movement. Gaede left the National Alliance with Strom and became active in National Vanguard. She’s best known as the mother of teenaged twin daughters, Lynx and Lamb, who performed for a time as a neo-Nazi duet called Prussian Blue. The sisters, now 19, recently renounced their mother’s views, saying they preferred tolerance and medical marijuana.

Jared Taylor: Founder of the New Century Foundation, a pseudo-intellectual think tank, he edits its American Renaissance magazine. The publication, under a false scientific veneer, features blatantly racist articles. Taylor, a Yale graduate, argues that white superiority is just common sense. “When blacks are left entirely to their own devices, Western civilization—any kind of civilization—disappears,” he has written in the magazine. New Century also hosts periodic conferences that draw Holocaust deniers and eugenicists.

Kevin MacDonald: An anti-Semitic psychology professor at California State University, Long Beach, MacDonald published a trilogy that purports to “prove” that Jews are driven by their genes to try to destroy Christian societies. He’s a board member of the white supremacist Charles Martel Society and a director of the American Third Position, a racist political party whose founder once sought to deport every American with an “ascertainable trace of Negro blood.”

Troy Southgate: A British “national anarchist,” Southgate broke away from the neofascist International Third Position group to create a website for the National Revolutionary Faction that pushes a “monoracial Europe” and shattering of the “economic imperialism of Zionism.”

Craig Bodeker: Identifying himself on his Facebook page as connected to the University of Hawaii, Bodeker is known for a “documentary” he made suggesting that modern-day racism is a myth. Though he has presented himself as a non-racist thinker, Bodeker has referred in YouTube postings to black people as “EVIL monkeys,” “NAZIS,” people with “limited intelligence,” and more. (Despite that, black Vanderbilt Professor Carol Swain has endorsed his film enthusiastically.)

Peter Brimelow: A former Forbes magazine editor and National Review columnist, Brimelow is a British immigrant who started a racist anti-immigrant website called VDARE. Although Brimelow has described the role of race as “elemental, absolute, fundamental,” he has not, up to now, been known for befriending neo-Nazis.

Larry Darby: Once a lonely atheist in hyper-religious Alabama and an advocate of marijuana legalization, Darby several years ago morphed into a neo-Nazi Holocaust denier who called, despite his two biracial daughters, for the return of racially segregated schools. He attended a 2006 National Vanguard rally, where he may have first become friendly with Strom and Gaede, among others.

The Facebook Julian Dene says he attended Northeastern University, a step up from Strom, who didn’t go to college. Sounding a little lonely, he lists among his favorite quotations: “Achieving love is much more than finding the right person, it is a matter of being the right person,” and, “Looking back, I have this to regret, that too often when I loved, I did not say so.”

But the big mystery is how Strom turned into “Julian Dene.” Is there some special significance to the name? Or is the bogus moniker explained all too clearly by the outfit Dene lists as his “employer” on the Facebook page: “Society for the Propagation of False Doctrine.”

    Elizabeth T
    Thanks for that tip.I’ll do that.He is still on Facebook only now he has removed his picture,and his wall is only open to his friends(I have another name for them).

  • XYZ Rsrch

    Just researching the names that appear on the screenshot above – e.g., “Per Olsson”, one sees in his network:
    “Iranians For Aryans”

    For the life of me I don’t know what to make of a likely coded front, “Iranians For Aryans” – http://facebook.com/IranianforAryans. Sounds sketchy.

    It has 2 subs:

    1. Charles Bartlett – San Jose State University – someone who is a teacher out in CA and a fundy Christian with over 800 followers.
    2. Derek Turner – Newpark Comprehensive School

    What would a fundy teacher be doing in a network directly linked with neo-nazi pedo pornster. Inquiring minds want to know. A very interesting intl network for Turner, for sure.

  • why is left so intolerant?

    “Asians score higher on IQ tests than whites and blacks….doesn’t this mean that Asians should be regarded as THE MASTER RACE??”

    race realists (Jared Taylor) and human biodiversity advocates (Steve Sailer) constantly bring up the fact that east Asians and also Ashkenazi Jews have higher average IQs.

  • Dee Dee

    Thank you to those who contacted the Virginia State Police and Facebook. As a registered sex offender, he would have limitations when it comes to social networking sites — especially ones that could possibly allow for the interaction with children. He also would have to register each of his email addresses with the police (if he had 50, he would have to give them all 50). That said, he would be able to re-create a Facebook account under a new email address, but it would still be a violation of his parole or probation, especially if it’s an email address that he has not given to the police.

    You said it, 3rd Rail. A lot of these WNs will actually continue to send money to these con-men, believing that their legal troubles are all part of some conspiracy. If you can convince people that there is a Jewish conspiracy out to destroy you, you can make a pretty good living.

  • 3rd Rail

    bummbeling idiots and sycophants willing to overlook any vile or stupid thing as long as you say your down for the white race If you leave any of these moron clubs,crews, orgs. or what have you, alone for any length time they just implode upon themselves I say let them be to wallow in their own ineffectual muck …….for they like children thrive on any attention good or bad

  • W Malloy

    Besides a violation of Facebook policy, would this not also constitute a violation of his status as a convicted sex offender? Is there no federal statute blocking assumed identities of convicted felons?. (Asking this, because some states have such a statute.)

  • krissy

    I don’t know why its so hard for white supremacists to not molest children.. I suppose it has something to do with eugenics and inbreeding. ALos why did he have to take a native american tribe for a name… he is sick.

  • Erika

    While you’d have to look in PACER to be sure, he’s very likely violating the terms of his federal probation. The federal government has been universally seeking internet restrictions for defendants convicted in child pornography cases. In fact, there is a good chance that he thinks he can get around the internet ban by using a false name.

    More proof that there is no better refutation of the claims of White Supremacy than White Supremacists themselves.

  • Elizabeth T

    Pamela – Did you report him to the Virginia State Police as well? If they don’t know by now, they should be informed. You could even call it in as a Crime Stoppers tip and remain anonymous if you want to.

  • tyrone mixon

    I think the fact that these people love naked children so much, speaks volumes as to how they fall so short on most aspects of life. I guess they figure the only people they can fool is children and that turns them on.

  • Matt

    April is not much of a credible anything. She runs a flophouse for whites with no where else to go. Parties till 4 am? She is depised by real white nationalists. You give her way to much attention.

  • pamela devereux

    I just reported him to Facebook with documentation from the Virginia Sex Offender Registry.The fact that he is using a fake name(which one is not supposed to do on FB) is the least problematic.As a convicted,registered sex offender he should not be on Facebook or any other social media site.

  • Madeline

    What makes all neo nazi to have sexual problems? Most of them are child molestors, or rapists or fans of porn movies.
    Maybe the answer is in the question: normal people can not be neo nazi!
    Even John de nugent that wrote he “once take a look at a porn movie”… looks at porn movies. I knew a guy that used to live in his house, he told me about Nugent’s habit…..

  • Sam Damnit

    Gaede and Strom. A match made in hell.

  • MST

    I keep on hearing white supremacists say that blacks are inferior because of lower scores on intelligence tests. However, Asians score higher on IQ tests than whites and blacks.

    Doesn’t this mean that Asians should be regarded as THE MASTER RACE??

  • Jonas Rand

    Nice work. Name ‘em and shame ‘em!

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    You are literally right, Shadow Wolf. During the trial Kevin’s ex-wife mentioned that she found he had photoshopped the girls’ faces(they were 15 or 16 at the time) onto pornographic photos. The fact that April Gaede is still friends with him bears witness to how delusional she is, and how little she cares about her daughters. Watch Nazi Pop Twins for another example of Gaede allowing a pedophile to speak inappropriately about her daughters while they were listening.

    (The pedophile in that case was the late David Lane.)

  • Shadow Wolf

    I supposed that the fallacious ex-convicted neo-Nazi “Julian Dene’s” primary interests in April Gaede’s friendship is traced to Lynx and Lamb, rather than per idealogy.

  • Ian

    Brimelow’s not even trying anymore, is he?

    Wow! I like to consider myself a pretty good BS artist: maybe I should work for the Society for the Propagation of False Doctrine!

    Ha ha ha ha ha!!!
