OK, this page is in danger of becoming the Neo-Nazi Freakshow Blog, so I’ll try to find another group to pick on come next week. In the meantime, I couldn’t help but comment on this one. Kevin Alfred Strom, one time right hand man of William Pierce, plead guilty this week to a single count of possession of child pornography. In return, prosecutors dropped the remaining charges against him. Considering that Strom was at one time a fairly big player in the white power scene (he even had his own group, the now-defunct National Vanguard), this is of course yet another rather embarrassing chapter in the history of the Aryan struggle. Most of the big racist sites aren’t commenting on the affair, although a few sad individuals on Stormfront are still claiming the existence of a dark anti-racist conspiracy in the case. Perhaps most amusingly, Strom has expressed concern that he may be targeted in prison for his political beliefs, and has strongly stated that he has never been a “white supremacist” or a “neo-Nazi”. Strom’s estranged wife Elisha summed it up pretty well when she said, “The thing I kind of wonder more about is that he doesn’t seem upset that he’s being called a pedophile, but he has a problem being called a neo-Nazi”. Last time I checked, white power people in prison usually don’t have too many problems (think of the Aryan Brotherhood). Child-lovers, on the other hand, don’t tend to do as well.
