Neo-Nazi Jailed for Making Threats Released After Three Years

By Don Terry on October 9, 2012 - 1:19 pm, Posted in Anti-Black, Extremist Crime

Harold C. “Hal” Turner, the right-wing Internet radio shock jock, racist, Holocaust denier, FBI snitch, lynching advocate and jailbird, is back home in his New Jersey condo after spending nearly three years in a prison cell in Indiana for threatening three federal judges on his blog who had upheld a handgun ban in Chicago.

You might add delusional to the Turner list.

Just before being released from a Newark half-way house in pre-dawn darkness last Friday, Turner, 50, told the Herald News of New Jersey, “I think my actions, in defense of the country and working covertly for the FBI, prove I’m one of the good guys.’’

Good guy? Good grief.

On his now defunct radio show, Turner ranted and raved for years about “bull-dyke lesbians,” “savage Negro beasts,” “faggots” and a “portable nigger lyncher” machine.

After a countless number of such incendiary statements on the radio, his blog and at neo-Nazi-sponsored rallies from New York to Michigan, Turner finally went too far. On June 24, 2009, he was arrested and charged with threatening to assault and murder three federal judges. Turner had been seething over a decision in a Chicago appeals court that upheld a local handgun ban.

“Let me be the first to say this plainly,” Turner wrote on his blog on June 2, “these judges deserve to be killed.’’

“Their blood will replenish the tree of liberty,” he continued. “A small price to pay to assure freedom for millions.” The next day, Turner updated the post to include the names, work addresses, phone numbers and photographs of the judges.

It took federal prosecutors three trials before convicting Turner of threatening the judges. The first two ended in mistrials.

Turner’s defense argued that the First Amendment protected his speech. His racist rants and threats were part of his undercover work as an FBI informant, his lawyers said. All his talk of “dykes,” “Negro beasts” and lynching machines was a ruse, they argued, encouraged by his federal handlers to draw truly dangerous white supremacist out into the open.

“The vast majority of the things Hal said were nothing more than shock jock material,” Michael A. Orozco, the lawyer who represented Turner at his first two trials said today. “I don’t think he was a racist. He was doing a lot of those things at the behest of the FBI.”

“Hal likes to push people’s buttons,” Orozco added. “I don’t think he meant to cause those judges any harm.”

Turner worked as an informant for the FBI between 2003 and 2007, providing information on white supremacist groups for the same government he frequently railed against.

During opening remarks at Turner’s third trial, William R. Hogan, an assistant U.S. attorney, was quoted by The New York Times saying, “Mr. Turner regards federal judges as domestic enemies who should be killed. He gets off on inciting others to violence.”

Indeed, a couple of weeks before Christmas in 2005, at a rally in Kingston, N.Y., that was planned by his fellow “good guys,” the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement, Turner threatened a lynching campaign targeting blacks and Hispanics.
“White people have a very nasty version of street justice,” he said. “If these crime problems are not settled by the black and Hispanic communities, rest assured we will get our ropes and we will solve them for you.”

Nazis, Klansmen and Turner had descended on Kingston after a black student assaulted a white student at the local high school in October. Turner and his buddies were convinced the incident was racially motivated.

Two years later, Turner was at it again. He organized what he called “Rally Against Black Gang Terrorism” in Kalamazoo, Mich., which was attended by a number of prominent white supremacist speakers.

Turner closed out the event by saying: “It is very rare in America today that a white man will stand in public and talk about lynching blacks, but I did that here today and if you think I’m kidding … I want you to bear in mind that the reason the city put up these fences and called in all these cops was not to protect us from you [black counter-demonstrators]. It was to protect you from us.”

In February 2008, realizing that then presidential-candidate Barack Obama had a real shot at winning the White House, Turner’s response was to write on his blog about Obama’s assassination. “I’m starting to come to the realization that it may be up to a sole person, acting alone, to make certain this guy is never allowed to hold the most powerful office in the world,” he wrote.

Turner later took down the remark.

The fallen shock jock was picked up from a halfway house by his wife, Phyllis, and his son and taken to their condo in North Bergen. He will spend the next six months under house arrest, according to the Herald News, which added that he would be allowed to leave his home for church, medical and legal reasons and to work.

He is barred, however, from participating in Internet or satellite radio programming for the next three years.

Turner told the newspaper that he stands by “every word I wrote” and expects to be vindicated on appeal. “I did not threaten anybody,” he said. The paper said a federal appeals court in Manhattan is due to rule on his case soon.

Turner also told the paper that he would like to return someday to the media world, perhaps as a television commentator. And he talked about his experiences behind bars at the Federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind. “There is constant and real danger in federal prison,” he said. “It is not Club Fed. Many guys refer to Terre Haute as gladiator school. Violence can happen there in a sudden and explosive manner.”

It sounds like the inmates were reading Turner’s old blog posts.

“Don’t think I’m talking out of my ass either,” he wrote in a 2007 post attacking then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for his positions on immigration. “The last time I focused on a federal official like this, it was US District Judge Joan Humphrey-Lefkow of Chicago. I commented on my show that one of her rulings made her worthy of being killed. Some time later, someone broke into her home and slaughtered her mother and husband.”

It turned out that the killer was angry at Lefkow for other reasons and had not been inspired by the shock jock’s comments. But that didn’t stop Turner from exploiting the murders to instill fear in the hearts of his many, many enemies.

    aadila, while the physical damage of corporal punishment to children can be severe, there can also be long term emotional damage.

    Many adults who are “into” spanking actually see being spanked (and i might as well admit this includes me) as being a “need” because they need “punishment” for being “bad.” Yet, unlike the childhood experience in receiving corporal punishment that “punishment” is controlled and can be stopped if it hurts too much (and obviously you get to pick who administers it). i believe that while this is often considered masochism its not really masochism but instead a coping mechanism to deal with the childhood trauma of punishment by exerting control. And i know that when i think about my childhood i think that i must have been a really bad child to have been hit so often (especially as a white girl which is statistically the group less likely to be paddled in school) – a more rational explanation was that my mother is kind of crazy (she actually told me to be thankful that God created my bottom as a padded place for me to be punished on – seriously, so its not wonder i have such emotional issues connected to corporal punishment) and i grew up in the Bible Belt. One interesting note – while the wooden paddle plays a large role in American spanking erotica very few adults into spanking actually use it because it is too dangerous and has too much risk of serious injury.

    There is also a strong link between severe corporal punishment of children and adult criminology. In just about every case of serious crimes there is mitigation evidence of childhood abuse – which is often horrifying. My belief is that spanking and other forms of corporal punishment should be viewed as sexual abuse because it has similar dangers. And realistically it creates too much danger of sexual abuse to allow any corporal punishment of children to be legal.

    Thus, while it is right to focus on the extreme physical dangers of corporal punishment especially by the paddle the emotional dangers of corporal punishemnt of children should not be ignored. In fact, i think it should be primary in seeing why there is no safe level for corporal punishment of children.

  • aadila

    Erika has eloquently described the nexus between middle-aged pygophiliac disciplinarians and right wing ideologies in our schools.

  • Erika

    aadila, i wouldn’t know what goes on in those sorts of ads – the idea of getting a spanking from a stranger is very scary. Peach bottoms are delicate and bruise easily and therefore need to be handled with care in all circumstances.

    Do you live in one of the states which still paddles children? If so, there may be little you can do about it – there is actually case law from some states which say that even if parents puts in writing that they do not permit their child to be paddled the school can still paddle the child and not be sued about it.

    Remember also that the persistence of corporal punishment in this country is primarily due to the religious influence because of a misinterpretation of the Bible. Thus, to the people which advocate having the state being able to beat children in schools it is perfectly consistent with banning the teaching of evolution, requiring children to pray and read the Bible, absidence only education, banning access to birth control, and turning public schools into right wing Christian indoctrination centers.

    Once its understood that to them “parental rights” means their right to dictate to every other parent how their children should be raised and educated it all becomes clear. Beating children into submission is all part of their attempt to control absolutely everything. In fact, much of conservative Christianity is heavy in the submission element.

  • aadila

    Erika,

    On any given day, chances are you can find someone in your area who is into spanking on Craigslist.

    I think this is a good enough reason to keep adults from doing it to kids in American public schools…but unfortunately, the religious right with their strange moralities seem to feel that engaging in sexual fetishes is alright in the name of discipline. In fact they think it’s how things should be because you actually have to opt out as a parent each year to prevent your children from being abused and humiliated by middle aged men with sticks and hungry eyes.

    What I find odd about all this is that some states which allow this form of abuse in schools — which, by the way routinely leaves marks, welts, and bruises for days afterward — generally mobilize child protection services when such marks are left on kids at home.

    I suppose this philosophy reflects the extent to which right wingers, especially in the South, are willing to give up their liberties to the state. Oddly, they denounce state meddling in family matters, i.e. giving children factual information about evolutionary processes, human reproduction, and sexual health.

    Well, right wingers never made sense before, why would they now?

  • Erika

    aadila, the thing that i find most unbelievable is that some states by case or statute have actually specifically exempted spanking and other forms of “corporal punishment” from their laws banning sexual assault of children. Sexual assault statutes universally list the buttocks as a sexual organ and there is no question that if a person would spank an adult in a non-consesual* situation it would result in a sexual assault conviction. Those states know that spanking children meets the legal definition of sexual assault of a child yet they still refuse to ban it.

    * okay, maybe the thing that i find most unbelieveable is that based upon surveys millions of adults are known to engage in consensual spanking activities for pleasure and some people still think that spanking children for punishment is proper. What is wrong with them?

  • Aron

    I just have to add a comment to raise the post count because I can’t stand seeing the number 88 on this site.

    Let’s make it 89!

  • aadila

    Erika I believe the answer to this questions lurks somewhere in the notion that spanking the buttocks is a symbolic sexual act of male frustration.

    Generally in schools, we are talking about white men who have a deep neurosis about their unreliable appendage, who compensate for this by humilating and causing pain to children and adolescents, who are weaker and subordinate, and cannot properly defend themselves. The paddle is clearly a phallic object, and represents male authority, and the choice of paddling the buttocks should also be very obvious in its sexual nature.

    Keep in mind also that these are long held social customs perpetuated by people who suffered the same, and like any cycle of violence, it will only stop when consciousness is raised about the long term consequences of this form of punishment on young people. In advanced societies and well adjusted families, corporal punishment is not common.

    Corporal punishment is no less than a symptom of a greatly diseased culture, afflicted by the imperative of male dominance and aggression.

  • Erika

    aadila, of all the things that i simply do not understand one of the most vexing is how the barbaric practice of corporal punishment of children is still allowed anywhere in this country. Ingraham v. Wright is one of the worst Supreme Court cases ever. The majority of states have actually officially banned corporal punishment in the schools, but realistically its just changed its name. now they call it “restraint” and schools have turned heavily to using seclusion.

    Having experienced both corporal punishment and seclusion (they called it “in school suspension,” but you had to sit at a desk in a windowless room by yourself so it met the legal definition of seclusion) in school i can say that both were awful and traumatic experiences. If anything, the seclusion was actually worse :(

    The social isolation and lack of social development of homeschooling is a real danger – add in with the fact that much homeschooling is closer to brainwashing than education (many of the largest providers of home schooling materials are ultra right wing Christian institutions from the completely disreputable (Bob Jones University) to the semireputable (Liberty University)) and many of the white supremacists home school their children and you have a very bad combination.

  • aadila

    When I look at the violence (beatings/humiliation of students by administrators i.e. “corporal punishment”) and poor quality of many public schools because the Republicans have this thing against teachers, sometimes I think home schooling makes sense.

    In other cultures, where education is prized, teachers are well paid and highly respected. Here the Republicans try to dismantle the teachers’ unions, and do everything in their power to keep kids from being exposed to challenging ideas and to develop their critical thinking capabilities.

    But my experience with people who have been home schooled is that they lack critical thinking and develop weird pesonality quirks, specifically with regard to their social responsibilities and relating to people. I don’t think they have the chance to develop their identities as citizens and members of society because they will tend to look at the world through a very limited scope.

    Like Erika says, they end up worse than ignorant. They end up crippled with misinformation.

  • Erika

    Being “home schooled” by neo-Nazi parents is worse than never having gone to school at all. Ignorance can be fixed much more easily than misinformation.

  • supersonic250

    The idea that he was schooled in the first place is laughable, Erika, considering his lack of any sort of common sense, self-awareness, or simple decency. The only “superiority” involved when it comes to him is knowing that for all my faults, I will always be a better person than him. :3

  • Erika

    Supersonic, oh you were actually being serious. How embarassing.

    Maybe next time you should stick to playing Solitaire :)

    i have a feeling that Ezra may have actually been “home schooled” by white nationalists parents.

  • Reynardine

    Ezra might have been referring to my novels, but really, the only way he’ll ever come up in anything I write would be if some interviewer said, “Where did you get inspiration for that superlatively pea-brained frathouse committee?…”

  • supersonic250

    Erika: I wish… except for the fact that I read this article on my laptop in the middle of a class on semiotics: AKA, the most intensely boring subject known to mankind. Then I read Ezra’s remark and burst out laughing out loud, and pretty much broke any pretense that I was paying attention.

    …I still break out in giggles every time I think about what he said, though. I mean, I know racists were IDIOTS, but I didn’t realize until that moment just HOW stupid they were.

    …And I also get the warm-and-fuzzies in knowing that while I’m getting an education in such obscure and esoteric subjects as semiotics, Ezra probably flunked out of middle school after repeating the same grade four times.

  • Reynardine

    Thank you, Kiwi, for enlightening us about the “Immortals”. If they got their name by being too cowardly to take casualties, though, they didn’t exactly stand out from the crowd, and Aron’s professor was right about why we never heard of them.

    I can’t answer for Aron or Ruslan, but the august elder Russians I knew were two from the Black Sea and one from the eastern border of Belorussia, and a bunch of yellow Whites in Siberia wouldn’t have been high on their radar.

  • Erika

    Supersonic, actually Ezra said something so outlandish that the rest of the class and the teacher were probably breaking up laughing as well so you are likely safe.

    That was almost a perfect response :)

  • Kiwiwriter

    Business before pleasure:

    The “Immortal Regiment” turned up in an article on the Russian Civil War in the July/August 1976 issue of “Strategy & Tactics” magazine, published by Simulations Publications, or SPI, to the wargaming cognoscenti. (Issue No. 57) The article was timed to the release of their multi-player game “Russian Civil War.”

    It said, and I quote, having it in front of me, “Because of the low standards and general unreliability of most troops, all armies formed various elite units for carrying out important tasks. The Reds employed ‘shock’ battalions, often composed of foreign ex-prisoners of war. The Whites often formed special units with distinctive names, such as ‘Death’s Head’ or ‘Guards.’ Even such picked units, however, left much to be desired in terms of performance. Among the White forces in Siberia was the so-called ‘Immortal’ Regiment. It lived up to its name by fleeing whenever the enemy approached.”

    The main article (and game) in the magazine was “Panzergruppe Guderian: The Battle for Smolensk,” which was one of their more successful games, a big 1941 battle between Army Group Center and the Soviets. Shelby Stanton and Victor Madej did the article. Jim Dunnigan and Redmond Simonsen, two titans of wargaming, did the game. I still have it and the magazine.

    If I’m wrong, then my source is lousy, and such is life. But I remembered the “Immortal Regiment” all these years for that story. Glad I was able to track it down.
    Now to pleasure.

    Ezra/Jason/Annie: “Someday you’ll be on a talk show, flogging one of your novels, and you’ll complain, ‘I once debated this guy named Ezra on the Internet and he ignored all my posts, even though they were so clever’. Then you will burst out into tears on live TV.”

    Hey, Jason/Annie/Ezra: At least Supersonic (or whoever you were writing to) will be the one counting the hard- and well-earned money for his legitimate literary work, while you’re still sitting in your parents’ basement, whining about how badly neo-Nazis are treated.

    Now, don’t give me that horse manure about how you’re a “reasonable” person. Just so that I don’t misquote you, here’s your garbage:

    “Then there is another category of very normal people, like Jared Taylor or Peter Brimelow. They are calm, reasoned, educated, articulate. It is this latter group I associate myself with. Peter Brimelow is very successful, writing for Forbes and other financial magazines. Taylor speaks four languages: Spanish, French, English, Japanese. Neither has ever advocated anything illegal or ever opined hatred for another group. Taylor accepts homosexuals and Jews. He considers these non-issues. His concern is preservation of western civilization and ending the flood of third world immigration.

    Your mistake is you associate all of us together as one group. I would never be caught dead associating with a Bill White or a Hal Turner. I agree absolutely with you; those kind of guys are losers.

    If you really want to understand us, start reading some of the writings of Jared Taylor or Peter Brimelow. You’ll see we’re probably very different than you thought.”

    Really? Then we compare this with your own words, as CM posted, and I repeat:

    In other words, “Don’t confuse me with facts. Whatever you say, I’m going to stick my fingers in my ears and go, ‘Lalalalala, I can’t hear you.’ ”

    And you say you don’t read our writing? Then why are you asking us for our life stories for your “web page?”

    Better yet, why are you here? Haven’t you figured out yet that we all think you’re the biggest and funniest pile of stupidity since Tom Metzger tried to be his own lawyer when the SPLC sued him in 1990? Oh, wait…I forgot, you think that organizations like his are just FBI plants and jokers, not taken seriously. Well, somebody took them seriously enough to follow their orders to commit murder!

    I’m talking to you, fella! *SMACK* *SMACK* *SMACK*

    Here, read this again:

    Who speaks lies? Let’s check out your own material:

    Tell us how the Holocaust never happened!

    Tell us how Stalin was going to mate German captives with apes to create monkey-men! (Or at least film a Soviet version of “Planet of the Apes”)

    Then tell us how the Russian people greeted their Nazi invaders with flowers!

    Then tell us how Norman Rockwell sided with Hitler!

    Then show us your proof that the white man is superior to the black man!

    And tell us again how you’ll prove it to us, only if we pay you vast sums of money, showing that you’re into neo-Nazism and junior Fascism for that noblest of purposes…the money!

    Then you can give us citations and evidence for all these wacky ideas!

    I’m talking to you, dummy! *SMACK* *SMACK* *SMACK*

    You can say you don’t read what we write, but we know you do…if you didn’t, you wouldn’t be here!

    See? I don’t even have to think in dealing with him/her/it…I just cut-and-paste my own stuff!

    And he still hasn’t answered a single one of my questions!

    And when are you going to do that profile of us? And if you aren’t reading what we write, why did you specifically ask us for those profiles?

    I still need an e-mail address to send you my resume.

    And tell me: the things you demanded we do: get married, join the military, save our money, buy a house, and get a better-paying job…when are you going to lead by example, and get out of your parents’ basement and do that very thing?

    But we know why Ezra/Annie/Jason is here…after he’s done spouting drivel, he runs back to American Renaissance, and tells all his buddies how he was bravely standing up for the white race against those horrid Negroes, Communists, and Jews, waging epic battle with them on the internet. Yep, standing in the gap, just like Horatius at the Roman bridge or Maj. John Howard at Pegasus Bridge.

    I also love his obsession with the Soviet Union. I guess he doesn’t know the Soviet Union had its “going out of business” sale only 22 years ago. And Stalin passed on to the next world on March 4, 1953.

    I get more laughs out of Ezra/Jason/Annie than I do out of “Comedy Central.”

    Tell us again why you’re wasting your time on “liars” and when you’re going to do those profiles of us!

    And how about the Nazi use of slave labor. Alfried Krupp was the greatest slave owner in history, with even a special camp for the children of slave laborer as Voerde-bei-Dinslaken.

    And if we’re all such liars and Communists, why are you still here?

    And what do the Yalta Accords have to do with Hal Turner and American Renaissance? Nothing. Just to hijack the discussion.

    So when are you going to provide us with that e-mail or mailing address for our 10-year resumes?

    Hey, physician, here’s a suggestion: Heal thyself. Move out of your parents’ basement, take a shower, put on some deodorant, buy a clean shirt and pair of pants, and get a real job.

    You have a better chance of working at Burger King than you do of achieving a “whites-only” state. And I’d like to see you fight a racial war. You wouldn’t last 10 minutes.

    I’m talking to you, idiot! *SMACK*

    Ezra when someone makes irrational insults, they are attacking the part of their own personality they have a hard time coping with. You were probably harshly treated for just being yourself, that’s my guess. That really sucks. But the past is gone. If you wanted to you could rewrite your life from this moment forward.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Yeah but the thing is Ezra, that you DON’T ignore all our posts. In fact you try to respond to many of them, and you religiously frequent this board. Every time you make a checkable claim, it’s smacked down with ease. Why is that? It might indicate that your leaders, even the ones who dress in suits like Taylor, are lying to you. They’ve made a career off people like you who thrive on simple answers to complicated problems.

    Furthermore, you always bring up things like Communism and the USSR, when they have nothing to do with the topic. I know in your fantasy world, liberals are supposedly fellow travelers of Communists, but historically this largely hasn’t been the case. The SPLC doesn’t advocate Communism or socialism, and at least in the US liberalism probably had a bigger hand in disarming Communism than conservatism ever had.

    During my studies of the Civil War, I often found myself rooting for the Whites, not for political reason (they weren’t terribly fond of we Jews…), but for the simple fact that so many of their leaders were such astonishing bumblers and fools that their antics proved to quite entertaining.

    I think it would be difficult to find a more laughable (anti?)-heroic character than Admiral Kolchak in all twentieth century military history. His story is just so damned funny. And sad.

    I think Annie has no sense of self, really.

    By getting a reaction from people, he sees his own shadow so to speak. But this is not a true sense of self, one of mature identity. I think these expressions of ideology are not heartfelt beliefs, but merely a costume thrown over the sense of what’s missing. Annie is still only a child, really, in many regards. By playing, children learn who they are.

    When you think about it, this is truly an unfortunate way to be. The comments are obnoxious, but try to remember that there is a human being behind them who is probably very unhappy. Though neurotic, the need for attention, any kind of attention, is real. Annie will be stuck in an endless loop unless he realizes this is so.

    It is possible to find a way to feel like a whole person without antagonizing others, Annie.

    It’s been a long time since I studied White army units. The only one’s with colorful names which come to mind are the “Savage Division”, the Kornilov Shock Regiment, and the Women’s Battalions of Death.

  • Aron

    Regarding the Immortal Regiment, I asked my mentor from college, a man who owns a sizable library of military history, and his response was so delightfully pithy, I figured I should share it:

    ‘Since none of my books mention them, I infer that their immortality had a limited temporal span.’

    Anxiously awaiting Kiwi’s response.

  • Reynardine

    On the other hand, what he/she/it/they seem to crave is constant attention.

  • Reynardine

    I’m with Aron, there. Being of a certain age, I actually knew a number of pre-Revolutionary and trans-Revolutionary Russians, and “The Immortals” doesn’t ring a bell.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    There may be hope for “Ezra” some day. After all, he/she/it keeps coming back with canned arguments from Stormfront and every time they are either easily smacked down with actual sources or he/she/it can’t substantiate his/her/its own claims with evidence. After a while one might take notice and start to question one’s ideology.

    “What percentage of fanatical Muslims are turning a people with a tolerant, artistic and brilliant past, into the ones who burn embassies and kill diplomats? ”

    Sam, this is a hypocritical argument.

    You are equally responsible for the 30 million dead and 200 million maimed by US wars of adventure since 1945. What percentage of a tolerant, democratic people turned us into the tyrants that we are? We drop missiles from drones on school children. That’s our Freedom. Not saying it doesn’t make it go away.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There is not righteous killing, Muslim killing, or Libertarian self-defense killing. There is just killing.

    None of it is noble.

    Dear Ezra:

    One can only imagine what horrors you have gone through in life to have to resort to such obvious attention getting behavior – however i think that Kiwiwriter called it – you are simply looking for humilation.

    i believe that you spend much of your time in the Third Reich Room at the Women in Control Theater in Blue Ball, Pennsylvania. And when you get bored of watching, want more interaction, or at work and cannot visit Blue Ball you come here to get your humilation fix. That explains the multiple identities and changes whenever people get onto your new identity and stop responding (plus, it no doubt is humilating when people catch you being “bad”).

    Your identification with the Nazis and your fantasy about Germans being carried off into Soviet slavery is a classic and revealing scenario. If one views himselve as bad and deserving of punishment, what more perfect way to be “bad” than to be a Nazi? Thus you want to be the bad little Nazi who gets punished in defeat. Its clear that your attraction to the Nazis is not the power like some neo-Nazis or even racism despite your pretending it is (i believe that your racism is simply an act to get slapped down as the bad little racist) – instead it is to their humilating defeat and punishment after World War II. And being carried off by the Soviets to a Gulag – you don’t have to be a psychologist to see that is obviously your fantasy scenario: to have a dominatrix dressed as a Red Army officer strip you of your Nazi uniform in the Soviet prison and then have her way with your worthless “Nazi” self.

    Now i understand why you asked those personal questions of me – you wanted to get a better idea of how i’d look as a Red Army officer – and obviously you asked for my height and weight to know what size of a uniform to buy for me. And the purpose of the resume was clear – because the resume would have my address, so then you’d know where to send the Red Army officer’s uniform.

    i’m flattered by your interest and generous offer to send me a Red Army officer’s uniform, sweetie. However, i must tell you: if you are looking for a dominatrix, you are most definitely barking up the wrong peach tree ;)

    But i do wish you good luck in finding the right women to provide the punishment and humilation that your bad little “Nazi” self needs so much and maybe once you find her you can stop being such a nuisance here.

    Very Truly Yours,

    Erika :)

    p.s. Is Jorge your new identity? You can tell me, i’m very good at keeping secrets ;)

  • Aron

    Kiwi,

    Might you have anymore information about The Immortals? I’m a bit of a early-twentieth century Russophile, and I’ve never heard of them.

    Forgive me for forgetting any other way to get in touch with you. Oops!

    Thanks.

  • Kiwiwriter

    ‘You all speak lies. Communist lies. What does the phrase “Labor in kind” mean? It means slaves! That’s what it says in the Yalta agreement. Stalin had a secret agreement with Churchill to take 4 million German civilians as slaves after the war to Siberia. It says in the Yalta agreement Russia can take, “Labor in kind”. Women, children, and babies. In addition, 4-5 million German POW’s were kept as slaves in the Soviet Union after the war. By my tally, there are about 16 million Germans who are “missing”. What happened to them?

    Far more Germans were carried off into slavery during the 20th century than all the Blacks brought to America in the previous four hundred years as slaves.

    read the Yalta agreement. There is a clause that says Russia has the right after the war to take German civilians as “Labor In Kind”. What is that? It’s a slave! They took German civilians as slaves after the war to Siberia.’

    Hey, Jason/Annie/Ezra: Are you going to provide proof of that in the Yalta Agreements?

    I’m talking to you, fella! *SMACK*

    Here, read this again:

    Who speaks lies? Let’s check out your own material:

    Tell us how the Holocaust never happened!

    Then tell us how the Russian people greeted their Nazi invaders with flowers!

    Then tell us how Norman Rockwell sided with Hitler!

    Then show us your proof that the white man is superior to the black man!

    And tell us again how you’ll prove it to us, only if we pay you vast sums of money, showing that you’re into neo-Nazism and junior Fascism for that noblest of purposes…the money!

    Then you can give us citations and evidence for all these wacky ideas!

    Until then, the tumbrels await for you!

    See? I don’t even have to think in dealing with him/her/it…I just cut-and-paste my own stuff!

    And he still hasn’t answered a single one of my questions!

    And when are you going to do that profile of us?

    I still need an e-mail address to send you my resume.

    And tell me: the things you demanded we do: get married, join the military, save our money, buy a house, and get a better-paying job…when are you going to lead by example, and get out of your parents’ basement and do that very thing?

    But we know why Ezra/Annie/Jason is here…after he’s done spouting drivel, he runs back to American Renaissance, and tells all his buddies how he was bravely standing up for the white race against those horrid Negroes, Communists, and Jews, waging epic battle with them on the internet. Yep, standing in the gap, just like Horatius at the Roman bridge or Maj. John Howard at Pegasus Bridge.

    Such bravery and valor.

    I haven’t seen such raw, unvarnished courage, since the “Immortal Regiment” of the Russian Civil War. I’m sure Ruslan knows about that White Army outfit.

    I get more laughs out of Ezra/Jason/Annie than I do out of “Comedy Central.”

    Tell us again why you’re wasting your time on “liars” and when you’re going to do those profiles of us!

    And how about the Nazi use of slave labor. Alfried Krupp was the greatest slave owner in history, with even a special camp for the children of slave laborer as Voerde-bei-Dinslaken.

    And if we’re all such liars and Communists, why are you still here?

    And what do the Yalta Accords have to do with Hal Turner and American Renaissance? Nothing. Just to hijack the discussion.

    So when are you going to provide us with that e-mail or mailing address for our 10-year resumes?

  • aadila

    So, respect for civil rights must take priority over the enforcement of laws… is that correct, Sam Molloy?

    Just for the record…

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    That’s a hilarious claim, Ezra. Where’s the evidence?

  • Jorge

    The fact that Amren and similar sites exist is because of a reaction to a perceived threatening political correctness.

    What’s interesting is that WN and BN both follow the same ideology albeit some more extreme than others.. i.e, Black Israelite’s, New Black Panther Party, etc..

    The real mindf*** is that if racism ceased to exist then sites such as Amren, SPLC, Stormfront, etc…would no longer be necessary and something has to keep those wheels, so to speak, greased.

    Too, there’s no such thing as racial superiority of any kind although some races do better in certain areas than others.

    I have to admit I get a kick out of these “non racists” who seem like they’re practically foaming at the mouth when they type and talk about “pro-white groups” and Kiwiwriter obviously doesn’t get out much or live down south.

    “Ezra” is recycling again:

    “In the closing days of WWII the Soviet army was an entire army of rapists. Stalin had a secret agreement with Churchill and Roosevelt to take 4 million German civilians as slaves to Siberia to work in the Gulags — German women, old people teenagers, children. German babies were even taken for medical experiments. Stalin has a nightmarish dream of breeding humans with gorillas to create a super race of human/ape hybrids, which of course, failed. Read yourself in the Yalta agreement. It says the Soviets can take civilians as ‘labor in kind’ — meaning SLAVES!”

    Etc. etc. etc. Just as tedious, off-topic and intentionally distracting in January as “Ezra’s” latest entry. Dude, you need to stay on your meds.

    Since you’re recycling your comments, no need for new responses:

    “I really didn’t think I needed to point this out, but Jason, you just failed history class. F-.”

  • Sam Molloy

    I know we have veered off thread “a little” with the Yalta agreement and such. After the German Army invaded Russia and committed thousands of unspeakable acts, at the time, it seemed more appropriate to say, who cares what happens to all those Germans. What percentage of fanatics turned arguably the best educated, most creative and artistc society in Europe into the monsters of the Third Reich? What percentage of fanatical Muslims are turning a people with a tolerant, artistic and brilliant past, into the ones who burn embassies and kill diplomats? Not saying it does not make it go away.

  • Gregory

    Once again, JasonAnnieEzra attempts to derail the conversation by introducing previously debunked and off topic material. One truism about the intertubes is that attention whores (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/attention_whore) are very rarely smart.

    Wow, 16 million missing? That’s a huge number and must have been extremely painful to pull out of your arse. It would be extraordinarily shocking, if it actually happened. However, simple math and a check of German records easily debunk that number. The actual number is 1/10th of your imaginary 16 million missing.

    The pre-war population of Germany was roughly 69.9 million. The high end estimate of German war dead, military and civilian, is 6.9 million, or roughly 10% of the pre-war population. If we increase that number to 16m, that would mean the post-war population was roughly 23% lower than at the start of hostilities. That number is clearly bogus, as demonstrated by the post-war census of Germany (East and West).

    The 1950 census of East Germany was roughly 18.4m. In West Germany, the number was roughly 49.8m. That gives us a total of 68.2m Germans, five years after the end of WWII. So, you are going to need to take that 16 million and jam it back where you pulled it from in the first place.

    The Soviets captured nearly 3m German soldiers during the war, most of whom were returned by 1948. The West German government Maschke Commission in 1974 reported that 1.2 m POWs were still missing and believed to be dead. 1.1m were thought to have died in Soviet custody. Again, your numbers do not comport with reliable German information, that is readily available.

    In 1964 the German Red Cross estimated that 874k Germans were deported for forced labour in the Soviet Union, of which 342k were reported to be missing and presumed dead. A 1986 report increases that number to 1.7m, with 580k missing and presumed dead. Please note that these are German reports, hardly what one would label as “communist lies”. Unsurprisingly, your numbers do not stand the test of reality.

    All this information has been given to you at various times. Yet, like the attention whore that you are, you repeat the same tired old crap and demand that it be debunked every time you repeat it.
