Stormfront began as a bulletin board back in the early days as an online support for David Duke’s political campaigning. By 1996, it was Don Black’s organization for White Supremacy, the name Stormfront taken from the German storm troopers (Sturmabteilung, or SA) and the weather fronts that bring about a sort of ‘cleansing’ of the area after such – as do tornadoes, hurricanes, etc. A former Grand Wizard of the KKK and member of the National Socialist White People’s Party of the 70s, Black is also an ex-felon who spent time in prison after attempting to overthrow the Dominican government.
Stormfront is a resource for those courageous men and women fighting to preserve their White Western culture, ideals and freedom of speech and association—a forum for planning strategies and forming political and social groups to ensure victory. — Stormfront mission statement
In 2006, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reported a discussion on Stormfront in which white nationalists were encouraged to join the U.S. military to learn the skills necessary for winning a race war.The 2008 United States presidential candidacy of African American Democrat Barack Obama was a cause of significant concern for some Stormfront members: the site received 2,000 new members the day after Obama was elected as President, and went off-line temporarily due to the increase in visitors. Stormfront posters saw Obama as representing new multicultural era in the United States replacing “white rule”, feared that he would support illegal immigration and affirmative action, and that he would help make white people a minority group.
There is a great deal of Hitler worship with Stormfront members, even though whose nationalities in the past would have qualified them as ‘sub human’ with the Nazis of old. Swastikas, members with Odinist, Nordic, and Nazi avatars abound. While the use of racial slurs has become muted (it used to be that members could employ these loathsome words at their will, so that one saw ‘nigger’ and ‘spic’ and ‘kike’ in every other post), one can still tell what a poster means and they often incite racial hate by posting links to fake news sites where supposedly, ‘statistics’ prove that White women are dating Black men in droves, being sexually assaulted by ‘gangs’ of Latinos, and Muslims are ‘terrorizing’ Europe and English-speaking lands like Australia, Britain, and the United States.
