For the second time in a year, neo-Nazi hacker Andrew "weev" Auernheimer appears to have targeted flaws in printer networks to distribute racist flyers. This time, he's calling for the killing of children.
Andrew Auernheimer, the notorious neo-Nazi black hat computer hacker better known as “weev,” claims to have targeted 50,000 printers across the country to distribute hate-filled flyers that call for the killing of black and Jewish children.
“I unequivocally support the killing of children,” Auernheimer wrote in the flyer. “I believe that our enemies need such a level of atrocity inflicted upon them and their homes that they are afraid to ever threaten the white race with genocide again.”
He continued: “We will not relent until far after their daughters are raped in front of them. We will not relent until far after the eyes of their sons are gouged out before them. We will not relent until the cries of their infants are silenced by boots stomping on their brains out onto payment.”
It is unclear what prompted the flyer, though Dylann Roof, who will soon face trial for allegedly murdering nine black people during a church service in Charleston, S.C., in June 2015, seems to have been a motivation.
“I am thank thankful for his personal sacrifice of his life and future for white children,” Auernheimer wrote. “In honor of Dylann Roof, I will be growing out a bowl cut in solidarity for his trial.”
Auernheimer also praises Anders Breivik, who killed 77 people in separate attacks Oslo, Norway and at a nearby children’s summer camp as a political statement against immigration in 2011. Auernheimer describes Breivik as a Nordic warrior, comparing him to the protagonist in the poem Volundarkvida, where the main character kills the sons of his captor and rapes his daughter after being imprisoned. Like the protagonist of the poem, Auernheimer served a brief stint in prison after he was convicted of one count of identity fraud and one count of conspiracy to access a computer without authorization after exposing a flaw in AT&T security which allowed the e-mail addresses of iPad users to be revealed.
Breivik seems to be a fascination of Auernheimer’s. Responding to Breivik’s appeal to receive internet access while he’s incarcerated, Auernheimber created the hashtag “#BreivikOnline” to draw attention to Breivik’s inability to go online.
Andrew Anglin, the founder of The Daily Stormer website that refers to non-whites as “hordes" and Jewish people as “Bloodthirsty Jew Pigs,” also published a blog yesterday mirroring Auernheimer’s demand for Breivik to have internet access.
This is not the first time Auernheimer has faxed violent, hate-filled flyers. Earlier this year, he blasted unprotected printers at colleges, universities, and unprotected office networks across the country with swastika adorned flyers promoting an anti-Semitic message.
