Banned from Internet, Neo-Nazi Comes Back Via Anti-Semitic Print Publication
Bill White, the vicious neo-Nazi Internet gossip who spent more than two years in prison on charges of using the Internet to threaten a perceived enemy, is up to his old tricks.
Once the head of the neo-Nazi American National Socialist Workers Party, White went to prison in 2008 after posting personal information about the jury foreman in the trial of another white supremacist on his website. A federal judge threw out his conviction on First Amendment grounds, and White was released April 20 on the condition that he refrain from participating in “any Internet related business or hobby involving a website, and the posting of any information on any website.”
In a letter to the Roanoke Times outlining his plans to retire from the neo-Nazi movement and keep his website dark, White wrote, “I do not intend to recant my views, even if I will quiet them.”
Perhaps “if” was the key word. Making an end-run around the court-ordered restriction on Internet activity, White – who started using the web to harass and intimidate people 15 years ago – is now relying on old-fashioned ink-and-paper media to spread his hateful beliefs.
His outlet of choice is American Free Press, an anti-Semitic weekly that bills itself as “America’s Last Real Newspaper” and was founded by Holocaust denier Willis Carto.
