Infighting is the hallmark of the neo-Nazi/white-supremacist groups. In fact, fighting among themselves and between groups simply seems to be a way of life if you happen to be immersed in that ideology. We love it. We are happiest when we witness how they tear each other down and apart. We enjoy this largely because it validates our claims that should they ever be successful in achieving an all-white homeland, the void left within their souls would have to be filled somehow and it wouldn’t be long before they would find someone else to focus their hate on.
We also like to see this happen because it interferes with any coalition or attempts to unify. Additionally, oftentimes this infighting gets down-and-dirty, and sometimes brutal furthering our claims that there is no loyalty among them and that they lack any sense of allegiance to their own beliefs.
The infighting lately between the National Socialist Movement and the Vinlander’s Social Club, in general, has been a source of great amusement for us, but more specifically, the baiting that has been engaged in by Bill White has raised a level of concern not generally felt by us when it comes to racists.
Last month at Nordic Fest, a handful of NSM members were not treated as cordially as they thought they would be. In short, the Vinlanders who were already sick of Bill White and the National Socialist Movements actions, decided to send them packing with a few mementos. Of course, the skinheads made quick work of the Hollywood Nazi’s and they left with bruised egos among other things. Bill White went into action and began publishing some articles making fun of the Social Club, their members and their girlfriends. But when White didn’t get the response he had hoped for, he stepped up his attack.
Relentlessly, Bill published tale after tale about murders committed and violence engaged in by one of the leaders of the group, Brien James. Internet rumors were flying and when Bill went to the rally in Antietam, he made sure that the federal authorities covered him well. Just as an added bit of protection, he also donned his Kevlar vest. But nothing untoward transpired.
Constantly baiting, making accusations that could only be considered as wild and unfounded, Bill cajoled the Vinlanders to the point that others were wondering if he had a death wish. Given his already outrageous behaviors, his known lies and unsubstantiated claims, people were asking if maybe he wasn’t about to derail. And then he became calm. It was like the eye of a hurricane as he began, once again to wax philosophical. True to his nature, however, his manic mode was not to be assuaged, however, for long.
Today Bill received some information that thrilled him as a young woman claimed that she and her boyfriend had been introduced to another Vinlander leader, Eric Fairburn (The Butcher). She further claimed that after she and her boyfriend became enraged when Fairburn tried to get them to watch a video which included bestiality, that Fairburn had beaten she and her boyfriend inflicting serious injury, as well as raping and sodomizing her. The email was graphic and claimed that Fairburn was now a wanted man.
Gleefully, Bill published the email and sat waiting for an official word that Fairburn had been apprehended. Shortly after publishing the email, Eric Fairburn logged into the Stormfront message board and dropped the bomb. He and an ex-girlfriend had collaborated on the email and sent it Bill’s way to see if he would publish it before validating any of the information. As this incident supposedly took place in Colorado, Fairburn was certain that he would face no repercussions or fallout because he was in Michigan at the time of the fabled attack.
Evidently, Bill became a little off-balanced by the revelation that he had been snookered, and amended his post claiming that Brien James had, in fact, written the email. It seems that Mr. White found himself floundering in an attempt to save face. In truth, no amount of spin-doctoring would be able to undo the morass of deceit that he had fallen prey to.
Interestingly, not one single poster at Stormfront came up on the side of Bill White. For every single one, this simply solidified what they already knew and perhaps Fairburn said it best:
“The idiot will print ANY rumor, hearsay or seemingly interesting story without regard for facts or truth…He again published another tall tale without regard for verifying the contents. He is so eager to vilify other activists he doesn't agree with, he'll take any two bit email and make it law on his web site. He has no credibility, no other purpose than to alienate the NSM from the rest of the scene and further make them the laughing stock (as if those uniforms weren't enough). Their proud new spokesman, utterly bitter and frustrated by our success. Envy, aint it a bitch.”
He further stated:
“By his careless tirades and name dropping, he does put innocent activists at risk as well as get attention from a wide variety of negative folk from law enforcement to extremist antifa. We don't know what credibility he has with general law enforcement and measures needed to be taken to prove publically to the civilians out there (and cops) how his rants and posts are complete bull****. Better safe than sorry. For the effort it took to make up such a tale, who knows how many people we saved from endless investigations and torment through the legal system.
“You'd be surprised how many very insecure people take the ramblings of a proven idiot and self-admitted informant as the truth.”
For a very long time now we have been saying that Bill White is dangerous. He is not dangerous because of any physical prowess that he has, although he would disagree. He is dangerous because he is going to get someone killed. His lies and incessant slander already got NSM members injured at Nordic Fest. His continued libel, slander, and prevarications can come to no good end for anyone.
From the standpoint of keeping the racists divided, Bill White is a real boon for anti-racists. There have been times that we have all asked if he were really working for us. However, while that sort of ongoing division is making our jobs so much easier, we also realize that his behaviors could have grave results.
When you combine insanity with power – whether that power is simply perceived power or actual – you have the potential for disaster. The NSM might not understand this while in the throes of celebration over a handful of new members and a few castigating news stories, but the consequences of giving Bill White free and unfettered reign will manifest themselves soon enough.
The Butcher said it right – “Insanity does have a face and a name.”
