When the blood-letting began with the National Socialist Movement and the unveiling of “Satan’s Gate,” it was anyone’s guess where this would all end up. The only thing that we knew for sure was that the casualties were high and the fall-out would continue for quite sometime.
Watching the posturing and chest-pounding has been a great source of amusement for us, and often we suffered tennis-neck from the continuous volleys that ensued. Seeing the National Socialist Movement suffer some crippling blows was well worth all of the hard work and late nights that went into bringing about their fall. However, seeing Bill White bite the dust has certainly been the most rewarding.
Last week we knew that White had stepped on some very large toes and that the fall-out wasn’t over. When Bill had Terrible Tom Metzger on his radio show which aired on the Turner Network, it was obvious that Tom was trying to sway Bill to his way of thinking. Of course, Bill White’s ego wasn’t about to kow-tow to the likes of Metzger or anyone else for that matter. Bill became irritated and instructed Hal Turner to cut Metzger off. Turner complied and we knew that White’s days were not only numbered but repercussions were inevitable. No one in the “Movement” cuts Tom Metzger off.
Last night White’s show aired again. As he girlishly gushed over the first issue of the National Socialist (a magazine from his new group American National Socialist Workers Party) being published, and ranted against the Canadian government in almost taunting fashion, we listened and wondered how much longer he could hold on.
Since the break-up of the National Socialist Movement and the scurrying of the rats jumping ship, Bill has been unable to control himself. In true egomaniacal fashion, he has been airing the NSM’s and their supporters’ dirty laundry on an almost daily basis. What he was unsure of he made up. Thinking that there were dozens of NSM members who would much rather follow him than the likes of Jeff Schoep and a rag-tag outfit that was going no where, Bill started his own group. The hand full of people who hang out with Bill is just that. Week after week he tries to get his supporters to call in and week after week he has been embarrassed.
Oh, they have lofty ideas: uniforms; logos; slick publications; letterhead; and becoming the “premier hate group.” Fat chance. Virtually everyone of import in the movement has washed their hands of Bill White. He has become the pariah of the hate movement. An endorsement by White is considered the kiss of death. From the neo-Nazi’s to David Duke’s eunuchs, Bill White is shunned like the plague and after last night’s radio show the one hand that reached out to him is now tucked safely out of sight behind Hal Turner’s back.
During the broadcast White took issue, once again, with Tom Metzger who had earlier made comments about the Confederate flag with which Bill disagreed. He told Tommy – “You don’t know Jack.” While we were laughing at his stupidity it got worse. When a caller from the Creativity Movement (f.k.a.World Church of the Creator) in Florida asked about the Vinlander’s Social Club, we knew that something was going down. Bill started naming members of the group and characterizing them as Federal Informants and worse. One after another their names rolled out of that phony Southern drawl that White has acquired. The tale of the tape, however, not everyone was able to hear those names. It seemed, for a time, that the show was having technical difficulty. We wondered among ourselves if portions had been pre-recorded then corrupted somehow. However, it appears that Turner was trying to block some of those names from going out over the air-waves.
In addition to the names that White was throwing around came the bizarre invitation by White to the Vinlanders to come to Roanoke and find him and assuring them that he would kill them. White has long come under fire for turning fellow nationalists into law enforcement or taking them to court. Promising to off the Vinlanders took his questionable loyalty to a whole other level.
Now, after “Satan’s Gate,” Hal Turner pulled the plug on the NSM show and Bill White bought the time slot with Hal’s blessings. Initially, during the fray that took place, Hal and Bill got pretty crossways with each other and Bill White published a lot of fabricated things about Hal and what was happening. Once they kissed and made up, we speculated that Bill’s deep pockets had been tapped pretty good by Hal “Send Me The Money” Turner.
But after last night’s airing, money didn’t seem to mean as much to Hal as the number of people that Bill White was alienating. In a rather comical move today, Hal Turner terminated the Bill White radio show.
Of course, Bill went into his usual histrionic side-show claiming that Hal was protecting federal informants and that the Vinlanders had threatened Hal into pulling the plug.
This is pretty close to the end of the line for Bill White. He is persona non gratis in too many white power arenas to ever be effective in anything again. He has successfully and systematically burned the bridges behind him with every group or individual he has associated with in the white nationalist/neo-Nazi circle. Alex Linder, Jeff Schoep, Don Black, David Duke, Tom Metzger, and now Hal Turner have seen him for what we have been reporting him to be for years. In virtually every circle or forum of the movement the very mention of the name Bill White elicits the most extremes in derogatory remarks.
Bill White will continue on his current path for a little while longer. He now envisions hosting his own live radio show – and he might just get there from here. The difference now is those listening to and reading his words will be doing it for the comedic entertainment that it is sure to present. No one listening will take anything he says seriously, ever again. If they do, they run the risk of being ostracized by the majority.
As for Hal Turner – good move, Hal. But we will soon say au revoir to you. You see, people who attempt to incite violence against public officials and Christians who advocate attacks on churches rarely fare too well in the public eye. Now you are left with the likes of James Wickstrom, a tired and old little man without a thing to say; Dave Neesan, the “white power illuminary;” (What a joke!) and a few little KKK guys who open their mouths and prove the stereotype of the Klan weekly on your network. As for Gordon Young – uh…you have got to be kidding! You can clean him up and put him in a suit, but you can’t do much about that inbreeding. Oh yes! I almost forgot about dear Mona Montgomery! She’s a real catch for the “network,” huh? She can give all the goofballs legal advice while educating them to how the Jews ate Jesus. That’s a real panoply of white racist leaders, Hal. Keep up the good work.
