The Stormfront White Nationalist Community is a White nationalist Internet forum with the motto "White Pride World Wide".

Large and long-running website

SF has 25'000 to 50'000 unique viewers each day, 2.3 million in total (since recording of that data). Sometimes, however, users ask, if the large hit number is not caused partly by robots, for example in India or China.

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] Stormfront is sometimes ridiculed by nationalists who have developed a more erudite position, however, it serves a well known point of entry for people who are just becoming politicised to issues of pro-European ethnic activism and wish to speak to others of a similar frame of mind.

History

Don Black, the founder and owner of Stormfront.

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.

August 25, 2017, Network Solutions robbed their domain name[4] and refused to let them transfer the domain. It took Mr. Black with his lawyer until September 30, 2017 before they could transfer their domain.[5]

Members

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] [2] . Prominent posters include Canadian free speech advocate Paul Fromm [3] and American politician David Duke [4]. 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 nationlists to music shows or dating advice.

The creators of Stormfront.org also operate other websites on the Internet, including MartinLutherKing.org[6] which is an informational resource for students, and others concerning Martin Luther King, Jr.'s radical political activities. Stormfront serves as a host to some other white nationalist websites, such as solargeneral.com.[7]

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. [5].

The Southern Poverty Law Center stalks posters and gets them fired from their job for posting on there.[8]

In Italy and Canada, the police raid homes and imprison people for posting on Stormfront.[9][10]

Controversy

The neutrality of this article is disputed. Encyclopaedic texts should be written in a neutral tone. See our Style guide for more information.

Stormfront has aroused some controversy for favouring the large nations to the small nations of ethnic European people in general. As a website based in the United States, it largely favours Anglos over other ethnic Europeans in moderating policy (a website which takes this to the opposite extreme is Vanguard News Network). There was a section for nationalists in Ireland (2005-2010), but because of the presence of some British National Front mods on Stormfront who support the Ulster-Scots Loyalists in the conflict in "Northern Ireland," the section has been locked.[11][12]

Generally, free speech is welcome, but a quick way to get a thread deleted is to bring up the Zionism and Freemasonry of Ulster-Scots Loyalists, or to mention the negative impact of the British Empire and the Judeophile WASP in general on European destiny (this is regarded as "divisive"). The British Section of Stormfront also bashes the BNP more than most red sites and allows social-lepper Skrewdriver fans from the modern NF to run it.

Moderator censorship

SF is 99% moderator driven. The second a moderator gets asked why someone is on moderation for 3 months, he threatens to ban the person. Moderators never give any reasons for banning - and even if they did, it would not be useful or helpful at all.
