The Stormfront White Nationalist Community is a white nationalist Internet forum with the motto "White Pride World Wide". It is a major resource for white activists around the world interested in preserving White Western culture, ideals and values.[1]

It is not a white supremacist community and it is against the rules to post racial epithets[2] or ethnic jokes.[3]

History

The Stormfront forum began as a dial-up Bulletin board system in 1991 in support of David Duke's US Senate campaign and has been on the Internet in its present form since March 1995. Stormfront.org expanded and began hosting other white nationalist websites. By June of 2005 Stormfront had grown to over 52,000 registered user accounts, and ranked within the top 1% of all internet sites. As of April 16 2007 Stormfront has more than 107,000 registered user accounts worldwide. The webmaster and founder of the site is Don Black, a veteran in the White Nationalist movement.

Stormfront has a variety of international sections catering to users from Italy, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (Stormfront downunder), France, Latin America, Spain, Netherlands, the Baltic & Scandinavia, Serbia, Russia and South Africa.

Posters from the United States are the largest contingent, but other English-speaking countries are well-represented. The remaining posters are mostly from Europe and Latin America [1]. Prominent posters include Canadian free speech advocate Paul Fromm [2] and American politician David Duke [3]. The website also provides Internet radio shows hosted largely by site members.

Hosted material

A section called "Our Legacy of Truth" presents a variety of texts on political, cultural, scientific and philosophical issues. "1001 Quotes By and About Jews" are presented, as well as text about "Race", "Pagan Identity", "Christian Identity", "Eugenics", "National Socialism" (including various works by Adolf Hitler), and "Viewpoints". Another section called "Text library" presents text on "White nationalist issues", "Affirmative Action and anti-White-bias", "Immigration in America", "Racial Differences", "Revisionism", "National Socialism" and "Zionism & Judaism," as well as other texts.

Projects

There are a number of sub-projects linked to Stormfront. StormWiki is a project of Stormfront to create a wiki which is easily integrated in the forum. On September 4, 2007 Stormfront launched a blog section dedicated to its users. Stormfront also provides a radio broadcasting system on the internet, usually referred to as Stormfront Radio. Its programs range from political debates with interviews to important white nationalists to music shows or dating advice.

The creators of Stormfront.org also operate other websites on the Internet, including MartinLutherKing.org[4] which is an informational resource for students, and others concerning Martin Luther King, Jr.'s radical political activities.

Persecution

Stormfront is seen as a threat to those who do not want any opposition to Marxist ideals in our societies. Thus there have been many attempts to censor it. In Germany access to Stormfront is blocked by some Internet Service Providers in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Stormfront also accuses one of the largest American internet providers, AOL, of practicing censorship by blocking its subscribers from accessing Stormfront. In some countries, members have been persecuted by the state: for instance on September 19, Amsterdam police was reported raiding homes of two Stormfront members. [4].

The Southern Poverty Law Center stalks posters and gets them fired from their job for posting on there.[5]

In Italy and Canada, the police raid homes and imprison people for posting on Stormfront.[6][7]
