The Neo-Nazis Just Can’t Get a Break

An unflattering caricature of the disgraced Kevin Strom

It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Hitler’s followers here in the U.S. First, Shaun Walker, the former leader of what’s left of William Pierce’s National Alliance (NA), was convicted along with two other white supremacists on civil rights charges. The crimes occurred several years ago in Utah, when the three got into a couple brawls with Hispanic persons in local bars. The federal prosecutors successfully argued that these fights were deliberately planned in order to prevent minority persons from frequenting those establishments. Walker and the other two defendants are facing up to 20 years in federal prison. Upon Walker’s arrest leadership if the NA passed back to Erich Gliebe, the man who formally headed the organization but was pressured to resign in part because of his marriage to a former stripper. Gliebe doesn’t appear to have shed this predilection, as the cover the current issue of the NA’s Resistance Magazine shows:
The NA also saw fit to rip off a leftist punk band by recently releasing a white power music compilation called “California Uber Allies”, its title taken from the Dead Kennedys’ song of the same name. You know the NA is getting desperate when they have steal ideas from a Jewish lefty.

As if this wasn’t enough, Kevin Strom, former NA member and head of the now-defunct neo-Nazi National Vanguard had more charges added to his already devastating indictment for possessing child pornography. He is now charged with coercion and enticement of a minor, possession of child pornography, obstruction of justice, and four counts of receiving child pornography. The charges seem pretty detailed, and are likely to lead to a conviction. Tellingly, the white power bulletin boards have been removing any posts on this topic from their pages.

And as a final sign that this idiocy is not confined to North America, the New Zealand chapter of the white power Hammerskin Nation recently declared that they would not be holding their celebration of Hitler’s birthday at the local headquarters of the Satan’s Slaves motorcycle club. Cause you know, you have to draw a line somewhere.
