Dancing With the Devil
The “nonviolence” of the racist right is astounding! Actually, the idea of “nonviolence” must have gotten a make-over. Where have I been? I must admit, however, that it is somewhat of a treat to be writing about violence perpetrated on these idiots rather than by them on innocent victims.
Amid their hackneyed claims of not being violent in nature, five NSM members were the recipients of a beating given to them by a bunch of skinheads with a real hard-on for Bill White and Mark Martin. No…neither White nor Martin showed up. The Vinlanders Social Club, run by the skinhead Brien James and Eric “The Butcher,” Fairburn had quite a presence at this year’s Nordic Fest. The Vinlander’s are nothing more than a spin-off of the old Outlaw Hammerskins bunch.
Now, for most of us “regular people”, Memorial Day weekend means a day off of work, picnics, watermelon, swimming, relaxiation, honoring our dead and saying a big hello to summer. Sure, a family member or friend might drink a little too much beer and get a little unruly, but by-and-large, it is a time we all look forward to.
Racists look forward to it too. They love to meet up in Kentucky for “music,” cold beer, hate speeches, contests, moshing, raising hell, and generally engaging in their manical brand of “entertainment,” and we are usually relieved because it takes a bunch of them off of our streets for a couple of days. This year was no exception. Actually, this year there was an added bonus – the NSM had been invited – to speak.
Five brown-shirted, swastika wearing, NSM members showed up at Dawson Springs, Kentucky and they really shouldn’t have. There has long been bad-blood between the Vinlanders and the NSM in general and Bill White in particular, and a lot of that bad blood was present at this event.
Steven Boswell of the NSM gave a speech – a speech about activism vs social clubs and armchair warriors – and he shouldn’t have done that. Alcohol, bad blood, and dissing those who are hosting an event are really not a good combination. While there are various accounts of what actually happened, the short of it is Bosman and the other four Hollywood Nazi’s got their collective asses kicked. It got bloody and they, along with some Creator’s left.
Bill White reported on the incident long before any other reports were in, and true to his hyperbolic self, he got a lot of the goings on ass-backward. White claimed that “The National Socialist Movement's leadership spoke tonight to the Kentucky State Police, who were prepared to arrest James, Edwards and others on charges of felony mob assault, but did not do so because the members who were attacked refused to press charges, despite orders from National Headquarters to the contrary.”
This, of course, went over really well with the skinheads and kluxers. In virtually evey account that NSM members have released regarding the attack, Bill White’s name was linked with the reason for the assault.
White wrote a scathing article back in January about Billy Roper and White Revolution and how the NSM was gaining membership from both of those organizations and others. At the time it was pretty obvious that Bill was feeling really full of himself and grand-standing once again as he encouraged others to leave their groups and join with the Hollywood Nazi’s.
The Hammerskins have long had a grudge against White from the time that he ran a site called the “Nationalist Enquirer” where he outed many racists and slagged all over them. A message on the Vinlander boards pretty much summed it all up:
“Bill White is a coward who hides behind the computer and refuses to face those he slanders. We've seen his works and his ilk many times before and predictably, he will even wear his welcome out with his new found "friends" in the NSM.
“The truth about this coward is self-evident: He thrives on assumptions and promotes half-truths, exaggerations and blatent lies as fact. For some reason he does this on his web site with abandon and some folks in the NSM actually wonder why don't want to have anything to do with them until Bill White and his ilk are properly checked and handled by the NSM.
“After all, you legitimize his "standing" in a new era which has made its intentions quite clear to abandon the likes of Bill White and his kind. NSM, do what must be done, you know there is no other way because true activists and northmen will not accept cowardice, rumors, lies and slander any longer.
“By his own admission, Bill White is a snitch and informant of the lowest kind and has repeatedly promoted "contacting the authorties" in regards to people he deems his "enemies".
“My friend and club brother, Brien, has never given Bill White a second thought other than to offer him the chance to spout off at the mouth in person. Bill White refuses to meet with any Vinlander in person. Draw your own conclusions.
“Bill your days are numbered and thats not a threat from us, its just a simple fact. You ilk are a dying breed reduced to shit talk on the net. Got a problem? Handle it in person. Every artcile you post, every slander you write, all the shit you talk = nothing.
“A life of nothing, promoting nothing, contributing nothing. Good bye Bill.”
Yesterday, in response to my reporting on the attacks, Bill had this to say:
“Funny that the only kind of "hard core racism" supported by "anti-racist" groups is the pathological criminality of the Vinlanders and the Keystone State Skinheads -- two groups who are so "racist" that they have banned the swastika, denounced national socialism, and pledged to "kill" any "Nazis" that they see.
“The fact is that the Vinlanders, the Keystone State Skinheads, and the Imperial Klans of America are radical *anti-racist* groups -- Brien James in particular has been a marginal and radical anti-racist for a long time. I think this incident has brought that into focus for a lot of the movement.
“Their Nordicfest drew about one third as many people as it has in previous years, and will probably be a non-event by 2007.”
We all recognize Bill’s posturing and pugnacious style, but to liken the Vinlanders, the KSS, and the IKA to anti-racists was a lot more than ludicrous – even for the narcissistc Bill White.
For several years now, we have been reporting on Bill White and his bizarre antics and we have said repeatedly that he is going to get someone hurt or killed. We have also said that he doesn’t really understand what game he is playing or what the rules are. In his quest for attention and validation, Bill has stepped into the arena with some very hardcore people and has no frame of reference for their brand of hate or their inner-workings.
White is nothing more than a groupie and is frolicking in very dangerous pastures. His little game centered around self-promotion has just moved from Sunday afternoon to Prime Time Live. He has pissed off some very nasty individuals, and continues to try and dance with the devil – problem is, he’s a rich little white boy who has no rhythm.
