MOCHA MAN & THE MEAN STREETS
For those who grew up on the streets and call that home, there is an unwritten code – an unspoken honor oath that is inherent with the territory. Many a spoon-fed, moneyed, dogooder has learned the hard way that things are done a lot differently in Joe’s Diner than they are at the Waldorf.
We have all known the person who is intelligent in the book sense but lacks even a modicum of common sense. There is another one who just joined the ranks of the reality impaired - Bill White. I know that we have talked a lot about this person – but he gives us a lot to talk about. Back when he was an anarchist he was good for a few eyebrow raisings and a chuckle. We couldn’t help but laugh at the poor little rich boy trying to fit in with the big guys.
Today, however, Bill has taken his insanity and his lack of understanding into the realm where death wishes live. No longer an anarchist and no longer a little boy, Bill is trying really hard to fit in with the Nazi’s. He wasn’t doing too bad when he teamed up with the misfits of the scene and was even establishing himself as a leader of the outcasts. Until the last couple of weeks, that is.
When five of his crew became the recipients of a boot party at Nordic Fest over Memorial Day Weekend, we knew that the fur was going to fly. Now White didn’t seem too upset over the beatdown that was given to his men – he was more concerned that it was largely because of him that the guys met their fate, and he wanted to encourage his men to press charges against the miscreants.
Back to that code of the streets. There are few things in this world stronger than that code, that understanding between people of what is right and honorable according to the rules of the game you are playing. Of course, if you happen to be the rich kid on the block, or the newcomer to the street, you may have to learn that code through a few lumps and scrapes. Bill White, the Nazi wannabe, doesn’t have a clue about the streets.
I have said, time and again, that Bill is playing a very dangerous game – a game that he doesn’t understand the rules of. He doesn’t understand that there are some things he can’t buy his way into or out of. He just doesn’t understand the code. And that will be his undoing.
First and foremost, the rules of the street prohibit informants. You don’t call the police and you don’t talk – two things that Bill does a lot of. When he took on Brien James of the Vinlander Social Club, he really should have boned up on the rules. But, of course, Bill didn’t see any need to do that – he has blustered and bluffed his way through a lot of altercations and this one couldn’t be much different. Wrong. Things are a lot different when you take on the skinheads. Bill White is in a whole new arena – one that is unforgiving, driven by a code of street “ethics,” and potentially deadly.
According to Brien James, “Over the last few days I have spoken with Mark Martin, Jeff Scheop, and several NSM members, and former members. They have all talked agreeably and said that they wanted peace. Jeff went as far as to garauntee me that he could personally put a stop to Bill White running his mouth on http://overthrow.com. This was a promise he obviously could not keep.”
If Jeff Schoep made that promise to Brien James, he is much more out of touch with the real Bill White than I thought. Any belief that Schoep could exercise even a small amount of control over White would be nothing but idiocy. Of course, rumor has it that Jeff has been hitting the bottle pretty hard all week.
Also according to Brien, “Someone from the NSM allegedly gave my name and cell number to one of the largest men (about 280 pounds of solid muscle) I have ever met in my life, in order for him to come and have a "talk" with me. I, of course met this man, like I will anyone, and the whole thing backfired on the NSM quite severely. As a result of this incident several other NSM members in Indiana have quit that organization and have already started to spend time getting to know different groups of my people all over the state. We have also been contacted by several former NSM members in Ohio and Pennsylvania including one of the guys who was involved in the fight at Nordic Fest.”
Actually, I had also heard that there were a number of NSM members pulling out as well, so this might just be confirmation of that fact. On the Vinlander website, Brien claims,
“…a person going by the nickname of "concerned whitey" is calling for the removal of Bill White, Jeff S. and another man I dont know of. At first they accused me of being "concerned whitey" but now they obviously know this is someone inside of their organization. Here is the latest message I received on this list from Bill White talking about how unhappy the membership is.
"An anti-racist group has decided they are going to use the Brien James incident to try and disrupt the internal functioning of the NSM.
“What's obnoxious is the amount of time the Commander and I are having to spend on the phone with people who should know better telling them to ignore these guys -- and the handful of NSM members -- almost all new recruits -- who are not able to take this stuff with the proper grain of salt.
“The Commander, who has been away on business, came back today and was so overwhelmed with calls and messages that he had to have another comrade takeover answering them.
“We are one week before two regional rallies and we should be focused on building those events and not playing games with a handful of wanna-be gang members outside of our organization who have a long history of attacking white activists of all stripes.
As I hear it, from a source who will remain anonymous, “White made some sort of covert bid to have Schoep dumped as "Commander," (due to weak leadership) and he nominated himself as the replacement.”
We wondered how long it would take before Bill “I’m a Millionaire” White would make that kind of grandstand play. The problem is, Bill still doesn’t understand that he isn’t “one of them.” He never has been and he never will be.
Further evidence to Bill’s lack of street knowledge was not far behind. In typical “I’m All That” fashion that has distinguished Bill White’s short career as a Nazi, he threw his tantrum. In response to a report by One People’s Radio that all might not be well with Bill White and the NSM, White fired back:
“Two new teenaged NSM members recently made some inappropriate decisions and made some public statements, variously, about how the Commander, Mark Martin, Richard Brunson, Jim Ramm and / or I -- mostly focused on me, though -- should be removed from our positions in the NSM "so the group can move forward". Obviously, they name five of the top NSM activists and demand that those particularly comrades are "holding the NSM back". Their call was picked up by anti-racist groups who immediately began spamming poison pen email letters and posting bogus forum posts attacking us all over our email lists and various forums.
“About 90% of the supposed "opposition" to various folk inside the NSM are anti-racists. A few comrades, mostly younger and newer members, have been suckered by it. I can say right now that the Commander and I, and the Chairman and I, are and remain friends -- I don't think anyone is being fired.”
There were no “teenaged NSM members,” there were no spammed “poison pen email letters,” this is pure Bill White hyperbole. It is fantasy – and one that most lucid and rational individuals can see right through. The truth of the matter is, Bill is unable to control his world at the moment. Everything is spinning wildly and downwardly out of control. When there was no response to his manic lies, Bill did the one thing that may cost him everything. In response to what Brien James had said on his website, White posted the following:
Brien James Beaten Outside His Home
Says Unknown "NSM Member" "Had A Talk" With Him
Indianapolis, Indiana -- Vinlanders leader Brien James issued a statement today saying he was attacked and beaten outside his home by "one of the largest men (about 280 pounds of solid muscle) I have ever met in my life".
James, in his statement, said that the brutality with which he was attacked "has completely backfired on the NSM" and claims that he was beaten "in retaliation" for the attack he launched with approximately fifty other persons on five NSM members at the Nordicfest concert in Kentucky.
The National Socialist Movement denies any responsibility for any act of retaliation against James or other Vinlanders who participated in the violence.
James concluded his statement by challenging NSM Spokesman Bill White "to a cage match" claiming that he had friends "who could arrange that kind of thing".
White responded by suggesting James was spending too much time drinking and watching WWF, referring to James as "the white nationalist underground man" and stating:
"I don't respond to obviously silly white trash fantasy suggestions. Anyone who ever wants to fight with me can do it very easily -- just walk up to me and take a swing," adding, "If Brien James was attacked outside his house, as he claims, then he has my response."
At the end of another diatribe posted on his blog, White makes the following statement:
“Nothing stops any person who wants to fight with me from doing so. All you have to do is walk up to me and take a swing. But I don't treat trash fair, I carry a gun, and I prosecute. None of that should be a problem for someone who really wants a piece of me. Otherwise, I let success speak for itself.”
All of this comes at a time when the Chairman of the Nationalist Socialist Movement, Clifford Herrington, had issued a series of edicts aimed at stopping the division that is occurring among the membership. Setting that aside, however, Bill White not only made a mistake – he made an egregious error. To blatantly lie, to threaten, and to issue such a challenge to someone like Brien James is, perhaps, the most foolish thing that Bill has ever done.
The code of the streets requires Brien James to step to the plate – it requires him to save face and honor by obliging Bill White. Bill has created his own monster – and this time the monster bites.
I don’t know if White did this out of ignorance or because he has a death wish – two things for certain, though – this is not over, and Jeff Schoep and the NSM organization have no choice but to cull Bill White from the rank and file. Anything less than that could only mean that Bill White’s deep pockets have been turned inside out by Schoep.
