The Hoosier Hose Down

TYN getting the Hoosier hose down.

TYN getting the Hoosier hose down.

In our previous post, we highlighted the Traditionalist “Terrorist” Youth Network (TYN) for producing signs that openly advocated lynching blacks, gays and Jews. These signs were used in public on Monday, August 26, with only four of them showing up outside the non-profit bookstore Boxcar Books.

Is there anyone else having Bill White flashbacks?

Is there anyone else having Bill White flashbacks?

Boxcar Books was staging a peaceful event to send books to prisoners. Due to what TYN perceived as a “Marxist” tone to the event, they decided to protest Boxcar Books with visible threats of violence.

Here, Boxcar Books reports back from confronting TYN on Monday:

“Racist, Fascist, Anti-Gay Trad Youth Go Away!”

On Friday, August 23rd a representative from the Traditionalist Youth Network at IU–a university chapter of a national white supremacy organization, came to Boxcar Books and announced plans to protest Boxcar on Monday, August 26th because Boxcar is a “Marxist organization”. The group posted images on their Facebook of a black figure being lynched with the word “communism” scrawled across it. They tagged Boxcar Books in this picture and wrote “Just expect us” underneath. They know we are their enemy, and they decided to attack.

Community members were quick to respond to the threat of white supremacist organizing in Bloomington. Over the weekend folks spread word to friends, neighbors, and local businesses, rallying strong support against TYN’s racist, homophobic message.

Boxcar Books opened on Monday at 9am. Several dozen people spent the morning at Boxcar writing letters to prisoners, sharing food, and making signs reading “Bloomington is for queers” and “Immigrants welcome here”. Students visiting Boxcar to pick up textbooks on the first day of classes were alerted that racist organizing is happening at IU and a great number of people called, messaged, or came by Boxcar throughout the day to offer their support. Banners against fascism were dropped on campus and downtown.

Around 2pm, four xenophobic chauvinists arrived at Boxcar chanting, “racist, fascist, anti-gay, Trad Youth will not go away”. Three of the miscreants were recognized by counter-protesters as folks from the local area including Thomas “Bullshit” Buhls, KKK Klansman. They were joined by Matt Heimbach, co-founder of TYN. About 80 counter-protesters challenged the TYN’s racist, homophobic, transphobic, anti-semitic rhetoric. The group was surrounded on all sides, sprayed with a garden hose, duct tape lassoed, condom-bombed with water-filled condomns, and pelted with “the people’s apples” as they ran away after about a 30 minute barraging.

Monday’s counter-protest was a remarkable showing of individuals in solidarity against racism and white supremacy. Though Boxcar Books was targeted for today’s particular action, this was never a singular threat against Boxcar or MWPP but rather an assault on the safety of all.

While retreating, wet and defeated, TYN members announced that they would be back shouting, “expect us again!”

White supremacists, EXPECT RESISTANCE.

Matt Parrott doesn’t seem to be happy about our previous coverage of their making pro-lynching signs.

Oh Matt, you handed this to us on a silver platter. Even Stormfront thinks you’re all a bunch of idiots for using a lynching theme.

Be sure to thank Tom Buhls for being the weakest link in your daisy-chain of failure.

After he was hosed down by the crowd outside Boxcar Books, Matt stormed home and furiously pounded out a wall of text that said “but the Tinley Park Five are terrorists too!!!” Speaking of terrorism, here’s one of the fine, upstanding white nationalists in attendance at the Tinley Park event:/a>

Steven Eugene Speers, AKA “Steven the Viking,” of Grand Forks, North Dakota, was arrested on a Texas warrant for possession of child pornography. As we see time and time again with white supremacists, Speers has a history of domestic violence and intimidation; he was arrested on multiple occasions on battery charges, lost custody of his child, and the child’s mother has a restraining order against him.

Here’s another:

Francis John Gilroy Jr., 65, of West Palm Beach, Fla., who is known as “Copperhead” on the West Palm Beach-based neo-Nazi website Stormfront, was charged with unlawful possession of weapons by a felon […] Gilroy, who has also gone by the name ”Father Francis” on the radio show of Stormfront owner Don Black, was arrested in 1999 after failing to cooperate with police when they pulled him over. A search of his van turned up handguns, two assault rifles and 3000 rounds of ammunition in his van. Gilroy was arrested in the aftermath of last week’s scuffle when police found a pistol in his truck. Gilroy has been believed to have ties to militia groups in the 1990s, and had been seen at anti-immigration events recently, most notably the anti-immigration rally in Harrisburg, PA on Sept. 1, 2007 where neo-Nazis made up the majority of those participating in the event.

The most amusing thing about this whole saga is that once it was revealed that Steven Eugene Speers was a pedophile, every single nazi threw him under the bus, claiming that he was actually an ARA DOUBLE AGENT who was responsible for leaking the location of their little nazi shindig. We’re actually a little surprised that they haven’t yet claimed he was a secret shapeshifting Jew lizard alien from the Pleiades. But really, it’s no stretch to link white supremacists to every single possible facet of antisocial behavior and criminality– racist gangs like the Hammerskins and White Boy Society are widely known to fill their coffers by trafficking meth. We could go on forever listing every single neo-nazi felon, but thankfully, we don’t have to– that’s what sites like OPP’s Rogue’s Gallery and the SPLC’s Hatewatch are for. Considering that antifa are capable of shutting down entire white nationalist groups by simply reporting on them, that would be pretty terrifying to people trying to organize in secret.

Terrorist Youth Network is Now Promoting Lynching.

Matthew Heimbach marches with the Neo-confederate VA Flaggers.

Matthew Heimbach marches with the Neo-confederate VA Flaggers.

Hate groups are never short of paranoia. They are constantly projecting their own violent tendencies in the form of self victimization.

The brilliant history blog Crossroads and author Brooks D Simpson have being doing an excellent job of reporting the day-to-day lunacy and latest in media whoredom of the “The Virginia Flaggers”.

Just in case you may not have heard of them, these Neo-Confederate dress up cosplay losers want to erect a big-ass pole and Confederate flag outside of Richmond VA. Having watched way too much Gone with the Wind as children, they want to return to the idyllic past where black people were property.

Onward we go to how much idiocy is being excreted from this situation; the flaggers now believe their big pole and made-in-China nylon rag is going to incite the big bad boogeymen of “the left” into vandalizing/harming/terrorizing them for their hoop skirt fantasies. As Brooks D Simpson reported on the rhetoric of these morons:

First, it was a warning about “vandalism.” Now, it’s a warning about terrorism:

You know what worries me the most about the level of vicious hatred individual Leftist haters express on postings of these types of articles lately?

I worry that sooner or later some lone nut or two, possibly inspired by the anti-Confederate flag rhetoric of these people will – in the name of “tolerance” and “patriotism” of course – commit some heinous act of violence of the type that took place in Aurora, CO or recently in Boston, MA. 

Its all too easy for me to envision someone planting a pressure cooker or worse pulling an AK-47 on a Veteran’s Day Parade that features Confederate re-enactors. 

The Left has recently shown these last couple of years they can no longer reasonably control their crazies, assuming they are even trying.

The irony is that Matthew Heimbach (see photo above, the guy up front in the black jacket) is fairly recent to the Neo-Nazi scene but a well known white supremacist; from what you can see from the photo, he’s a member/supporter of the Virginia flaggers.

We just recently featured a story about Heimbach’s fellow “White Student Union” school club member John Stortstrom  who was involved in creating explosives as a contractor with the military.

In that story, we also mentioned the new parent group of the white student union: “The Traditionalist Youth Network,” a group born out of the old Youth For Western Civilization college club sponsored by Morton Blackwell’s Leadership Institute.

The Traditionalist Youth Network is a apparently being run by Heimbach and the Indiana white power gadfly Matt Parrott and is most likely backed by The American Freedom Party .

Ya’ll still following this?

It looks like ugly just got uglier because now The Traditionalist Youth Network is now promoting the violence of lynching.

Translation: Communists= Blacks Zionists=Jews Modernists=Gays

Translation:
Communists= Blacks
Zionists=Jews
Modernists=Gays

On their page they go into great detail how the young violent hate monger can create violent and threatening signs that promote racial terrorism on the people. And we thought all that was already over.

Some quotes from the article (which we made sure to take screen shots of)

lynch-2

If you followed these directions correctly, it means that you’ve got a kick-ass sign which is capable of lynching Communism worse than a farmer beating a rented mule.

 Now that you know how to make an awesome sign, get out there and be a strong Church Militant, and don’t forget to post some pictures on our Facebook wall…

Who are the REAL terrorists NOW?

Stephen McNallen and Racialist Asatru

brotherhoodss09_05

There is an amusing tendency amongst religious and racist frauds of all stripes to boast about their academic prowess as a way of adding legitimacy to their philosophies, while simultaneously exercising shockingly poor academic ethics. A typical example of this are people who claim their particular religious tradition is thousands of years old but are unwilling and unable to produce one shred of evidence as proof. This generally manifests itself in situations commonly reserved for TV preachers and other hucksters who want your money. This also comes into play with racists who spout ridiculous, quasi-scientific theories with their citations consisting of routinely discredited studies or papers that mysteriously can’t be found.

In Steven McNallen, we have the perfect synthesis of all of the above elements. We’ve been smelling the racist stench from McNallen for years, but every time we’ve probed our local heathen communities for comments or insights, we’ve met with nothing but brick walls. Circle Ansuz, an anti-fascist heathen collective who’s been the perennial foe of the idiotic “bay area national anarchists,” has written a fantastic piece that truly demolishes the mythology around McNallen. As you’ll find out, McNallen isn’t a quaint “racialist” who thinks that different races can live peacefully separate from each other, he quite literally believes that the souls of different races are as incompatible as an Allen wrench to a flat-head screw. Oh, and he tagged along with and wrote fawning articles about a mercenary outfit composed of former members of apartheid South Africa’s official government death squad.

From Circle Ansuz:

Stephen McNallen is, without a doubt, one of the most famous names in American Heathenry.  A long-time participant, organizer, and writer in American Asatru McNallen has been active since the early 70s when he helped found the Asatru Free Assembly.  Following the organization’s collapse over the issue of racism he traveled the world, writing for Soldier of Fortune magazine, before founding the Asatru Folk Assembly in 1994.  Since then he has led the AFA to becoming a large, well-known, and established element in the American Heathen community.  So great is his influence and fame that many say he is the most important man in American Heathenry.  His proponents claim, quite loudly, that without McNallen Heathenry would not exist in the United States.

hqdefault

The story is very powerful, compelling, and is a carefully crafted myth.  Stephen McNallen, far from being the messianic figure he is held up as, has for some time been an active participant in the American neo-fascist radical traditionalist movement.  It is not certain how long he has been involved in the neo-fascist movement but what is certain is since at least 1985 he has been an unapologetic advocate for white nationalism.  Far worse, he has actively worked to advance his brand of Heathenry by concealing it behind an appealing mask of twisted heritage and falsified traditions.  The damage he has done to American Heathenry is incalculable.

It is not clear when McNallen first subscribed to racialist practice but the first proof we have of him articulating such a position is from 1985 and the time of the Asatru Free Assembly.  During the 70s and 80s the old AFA, as it is known, was kicked off by a dispute over what to do about a kindred in Arizona who included open neo-Nazis.   The debate steadily split the AFA into two camps: those who supported excluding those from the community who were not of proven Germanic descent and those who welcomed all interested seekers.  The tensions of the debate would lead to the AFA dissolving sometime between 1986 and 1987.  As the schism in the Asatru Free Assembly Stephen was gaining momentum McNallen would write and publish the document that would be the foundation of his form of Heathen practice: Metagenetics.

In “Metagenetics” McNallen lays out his case for racialized, ethnocentric spirituality.  He begins by saying:

One of the most controversial tenets of Asatru is our insistence that ancestry matters- that there are spiritual and metaphysical implications to heredity, and that we are thus a religion not for all of humanity, but rather one that calls only its own. This belief of ours has led to much misunderstanding, and as aresult some have attempted to label us as “racist”, or have accused us of fronting for totalitarian political forms.
He proceeds to lay out his case proving the link between genetics and spirituality.  McNallen claims these ideas are based on, “intuitive insights as old as our people” but then proceeds to cite no sagas, sources, or examples to back this claim up.  The closest he gets is when he claims reincarnation by bloodline was a universal belief among the ancient Germanics saying, “A person did not come back as a bug or a rabbit, or as a person of another race or tribe, but as a member of their own clan.” (emphasis ours) After citing Carl Jung as justification for his theories McNallen asserts, “A more precise statement of the mind/body/spirit link, and of the religious implications of biological kinship, would be hard to find,” before concluding:
No doubt, on an earlier and deeper level of psychic development, where it is still impossible to distinguish between an Aryan, Semitic,Hamitic, or Mongolian mentality, all human races have a common collective psyche. But with the beginning of racial differentiation, essential differences are developed in the collective psyche as well. For this reason, we cannot transplant the spirit of a foreign religion ‘in globo’ into our own mentality without sensible injury to the latter.”
The only support he has to validate his arguments is an uncited study on Tlingit spirituality.  The lack of properly cited sources, surprising given McNallen’s college education and his years of service as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Army in Germany, only serves to bolster and legitimize an overtly racist argument.  He puts it most clearly and obviously when he says in his closing paragraph, “only by

understanding who we are, only by coming from our racial “center”, can we interact justly and with wisdom with other peoples on this planet”.  Regardless of one’s opinions regarding his logic, methodology, sourcing, or position it is clear since at least 1985, when he published Metagenetics, McNallen stood unquestionably for racialist Heathenry.

In the years following the dissolution of the old AFA and the founding of the Ring of the Troth Stephen McNallen traveled the world, particularly in South Africa, Namibia, and Botswana, as a writer for Soldier of Fortune magazine.

1006022_10151567648355840_1251733790_n

One piece he published was in the May 1995 issue covering the notorious mercentary outfit Executive Outcomes, one of the first modern private mercenary corporations.

1098302_10151567647635840_1399970184_n

The byline for the article McNallen introduces them with, “If you are willing to occasionally fire up a few friends from a long-time, pro-Western, anti-communist guerrilla group, Executive Outcomes is looking for a few good mercs.”  The true story behind Executive Outcomes is much less glamorous than this implies.  Founded in 1989 by former Lt. Colonel Eeben Barlow of the South Africa Defense Force’s infamous Civil Cooperation Bureau, an apartheid-era government hit squad, Barlow took advantage of the downsizing of the SADF to recruit now unemployed veterans & special forces operators to form the backbone of his new business venture.  EO would do the dirty work for corporate interests all over Africa until their dissolution in 1999.

McNallen’s time in South Africa would have a profound impact on his form of racialized Heathenry.  When he returned to the United States in 1994 from his travels abroad and founded the Asatru Folk Assembly, he began promoting many concepts central to Afrikaner nationalism as if they are inseparable from Asatru itself.

Patrick Sharp’s Stormfront Account

The little Nazi who watched too many 80's music videos

The little Nazi who watched too many 80’s music videos

Patrick Sharp is an odd duck. An attention-starved little boy with unaddressed antipathy towards his parents, Patrick currently fancies himself the leader of the Georgia State White Student Union. Claiming he was inspired by Matthew Heimbach (a frequent subject on our pages, as of late), Patrick has this to say about people who refer to his group as racist:

“You know, to say this is some closeted or curtained white supremacy, it’s pretty — and I’ll go ahead and turn their words around on them — it’s pretty ignorant and closed-minded,” he explained to WXIA. “It’s a pride organization, it’s a cultural organization, what we have is not hate for any other group… Whites are becoming a minority… We have a voice, we’re unique people, and we have every right to make that voice heard.”

Not white supremacist, eh? Well, we have discovered that Patrick uses the nick PSHARP94 in association with his Facebook account

Screen shot 2013-08-02 at 11.59.10 PM

So what have you been doing since 2011 on Stormfront, psharp94— or should I say, “Friend of Stormfront” sustaining member frozenpie77? How much money did you send to Don Black, anyway?

OOPS

OOPS

Yes, it’s very clever to change your nickname so you have plausible deniability, but you’re forgetting one key issue:
WHEN PEOPLE QUOTE YOU IN A POST, THE USERNAME STAYS THE SAME.

DOH!

But really, this whole mess is really quite sad when you dig deep enough– in one Stormfront post, Patrick talks about how much of a positive influence his Filipino stepmother was on his life…

Awww, ain't that sweet?

Awww, ain’t that sweet?

…but in another post he damns his father for being a “race traitor” for marrying her.

A poor, confused young lad.

A poor, confused young lad.

He’s clearly acting out in a bid for as much attention as he can get; hopefully, he’ll seek attention from a licensed family therapist rather than the auspices of Stormfront.

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!!!! IF YOU STILL HAVE ANY DOUBT FROZENPIE77 IS PATRICK SHARP…

From his Youtube account that he also named "FROZENPIE77"
