Neo-Nazi Bill White: U.S. is a ‘Demonic Dream’

By Leah Nelson on June 27, 2012 - 3:53 pm, Posted in Neo-Nazi

Bill White, the Virginia neo-Nazi and convicted felon who was arrested in Mexico earlier this month and faces federal charges of violating the terms of his supervised release, appears to have suffered some kind of mental breakdown.

In a series of letters to supporters and federal authorities, the notorious Internet gossip, who was released in April 2011 after spending more than two years in prison on multiple charges of threatening enemies through intimidating phone calls and Internet postings, wrote that the United States is a “demonic dream,” and that he has broken free of its hold.

White has been in federal custody since his June 8 arrest in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Last week, according to Roanoke’s WDB7, he sent a letter to federal authorities claiming that, while in prison, he was given drugs that led him to communicate “with beings that … allowed [him] to explore certain hidden and obscured aspects of human experience.”

The court and proceedings against him aren’t real, he wrote – and neither is he. “[T]here is no white supremacist William A White … I cannot be William White because William White does not exist.”

Similar themes run through a June 17 letter posted yesterday by the anonymous blogger who runs a fan site covering the “political persecution of white activist Bill White.” Explaining that he had experienced “terrible nightmares” since his time in prison and that he had remained in these dream states long after waking, White claimed in the letter to have “discovered … that these nightmare images were really projections into my mind of the dreamscape of a demonic being.”

“Beneath the United States, a serpent lies dreaming. Its children – the Jews and reptiles and their cult – do its work. But the whole is but a figment of the monster’s imagination,” he wrote.

Realizing this, he said, the only “rational” thing to do was to leave the “dreamworld” entirely. “As a suspected, ‘reality’ broke down as I approached the borders of the so-called United States,” he wrote. “I do not truly believe that I physically traveled anywhere – the ‘physicality’ of things is just a means of experiencing a change in psychic state. I got free of the mind of the evil being in Washington and, briefly, of all evil beings.”

Though “the serpent drug me back,” he wrote, mentally, he is permanently free of its clutches. “I can see that in its dreamings, who [sic] lack the confidence and power they once had.

“I am not William White because William White is an illusion,” he continued. “One could say he was created by the government to distract the people from the poverty and misery of failed America, but, on a metaphysical level, he was dreamed into being by these demons for a purpose. No longer subject to this demonic dream, I can no longer be White.”

White, who became a neo-Nazi around 2000 after flirting with far-left ideology, claims to have become a “utopian anarchist” in junior high school. In a newsletter he ran as a high school student, he railed against juvenile psychiatry, writing later that he had been subjected to a series of psychiatric tests as a youth in which he routinely scored high for paranoia and aggressiveness.

    Oh, see here, T.C., at this point, his choices are Plain Big House and Quilted Big House, where you get the white dinner jackets with the wrist buckles that fasten behind your back.

  • TC

    Funny how the thought of the big house elicits attempts to come off as crazy. Not as big and bad a badass as you claimed you were, are ya Mr. White?

  • Bob

    I was just watching the Dodgers and Mets game. Thought I’d check my emails and decided to read White’s rants. What a great and calming way to end a Sunday night. Now I don’t have to turn on the SciFi Channel, I can just read crap like this from idiots like White, who think they actually have a valid point to make.

  • Kiwiwriter

    Bill White may be crazy, but the victims of his crimes are mad as hell.

  • Hump Jones

    The article was fantastic, but the bonus round of EXTREMELY QUALIFIED SPECULATION about drugs by internet commentators kicked the LULZ up to a whole new level, thanks for all the belly laughs this morning.

  • Whatever

    I am 99% sure this dude is faking it. Send the POS back to Mexico… I don’t want my tax dollars feeding this idiot.

    ” Sounds like an unsupervised peyote binge to me.”

    I was thinking LSD, myself. Been a long long time since my experiments, though I do not recall talking to aliens. Now, with pot…. perhaps (depending upon additives).

  • Supersonic250

    You get in even MORE trouble when you become an illegal immigrant in Mexico to try to escape probation too…

    Y’know, after everything, that’s the fact about this case that makes me laugh the hardest.

  • Reynardine

    Lois, I congratulate you on the scintillation of your preternatural oligophrenia.

    However, Ruslan, watch it. S/he could be a Hammerhead in drag.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Lois, you just won this week’s Dumbass of the Week Award. See, when you’re on probation and you’re told not to leave the state, you get in big trouble if you fail to obey this simple rule.

  • Phila

    “Way to rip off Lovecraft and add a racist twist all at the same time, Bill.”

    No need to add that twist. Lovecraft’s racism was pretty virulent and hard to miss.

  • Lois

    What did Mr. White do? Is his being white a reason to attack him? I don’t think so.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    I think he just went mad with rage after finding out the map he bought had mislabeled Mexico as Iran.

  • adamhill

    Given that the Facebook posts he wrote while he was in Mexico were perfectly lucid, this attempt to fake psychosis won’t keep him out of prison.

  • CM

    Sounds like an unsupervised peyote binge to me.

  • Reynardine

    Ruslan, maybe he was trying to rip off Lovecraft, but he was even less successful than Ayn Rand trying to rip off Zamyatin.

  • Erika

    if he’s trying to get sympathy from the judge by playing insane and actually believes that will get him anything besides a bed at FCI Butner, he actually is insane.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    ““Beneath the United States, a serpent lies dreaming. Its children – the Jews and reptiles and their cult – do its work. But the whole is but a figment of the monster’s imagination,” he wrote.”

    Way to rip off Lovecraft and add a racist twist all at the same time, Bill.

    This is just a ploy to gain some kind of compassion from the court.

  • M. Bright

    Sounds like prep for an insanity plea to me.

  • CoralSea

    First — at least he left the country (was he extradicted back? I can see why Mexico wouldn’t want him).

    Second — is he involved with the Raelians? Because it seems that they are traveling along some of the same, uh, cosmic waves.

    Third — it is interesting that he claims to have scored high on paranoia and aggressiveness on tests conducted in high school. One wonders if that is true? It would certainly explain the zig-zag trajectory of journey through life.

    If he actually is mentally ill, perhaps this might actually cause some people who follow such extremists (including religious extremists) to begin asking some tough questions about who they really are listening to.

    Mental illness always makes me feel sad for the sufferer — but more sad for the people on whom they sometimes inflict real punishment. Unfortunately, unlike persons who suffer from mood disorders (depression, anxiety), and often do seek treatment, one of the hallmarks of many personality disorders includes an inability to accept that something is wrong.

  • Joseph

    I think I’m dumber after reading the content of his letters, the post however was well written Ms. Nelson.

    On a related note: Neo-Nazi’s don’t like it when weakness is projected, especially by one of their leaders. Mr. White’s days just may very well be numbered if his (insinuated) insanity plea doesn’t hold water and he is to remain in lock up.

  • Supersonic250

    Let’s still see if he thinks the court and proceedings against him aren’t real after serving his twentieth year in jail. William A. White is gonna do some time in the “Psychic State Penitentiary.”

  • Reynardine

    Just because he’s a vicious fruitcake with grandiose paranoia and a raving case of malignant narcissism doesn’t mean he’d pass even a modified McNaughton, and just because he isn’t McNaughton nuts doesn’t mean he wouldn’t try to fake it. Ask Congressman Alcee Hastings about Gib o’the Woods.

  • Erika

    I’m guessing we will hear word of a forced meds hearing for Mr. White very soon.
