Anti-Semitism Blogging Holocaust denial Politics


On Wednesday, in response to really bad analogy attacking the NAACP and the Black and Hispanic Congressional Caucuses, I wrote a rather lengthy post that attempted to educate the rather clueless blogger by the name of LaShawn Barber who had produced the rant about how the white nationalist teen singing duo Prussian Blue (who, according to LaShawn, are only expressing “white pride”) got their name from a technique of Holocaust denial.

Well, it turns out I’ve been trolled. LaShawn has posted an update that’s basically one big gloat:

A belated “Happy Independence Day” to all the left-leaning (and sometimes vulgar) bloggers linking to this wonderfully controversial post! From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for all the links, which have caused this blog to rise in the TTLB Ecosystem (#22 out of 50,000+ registered blogs ain’t bad!).

And the traffic meter is looking good, too. I’m touched. Really. If this post has your knickers in a wad, you should read some of my earlier stuff (est. November 2003). Grab a feed, sign up for e-mail updates, and keep checking LBC because controversy is my life.

So, basically, it seems as though LaShawn was intentionally inflammatory. It even sounds as though she does it on purpose to provoke links and more traffic. I wish I had realized that before, as one of the cardinal rules of Usenet and online discussion forums (and, I suppose, blogs) is “don’t feed the troll.” Clearly LaShawn has no interest in learning about how Prussian Blue’s name results from Holocaust denial, how they consort with white supremacist organizations, and how they are admirers of Hitler. It would seem that they were simply convenient foils for her to use to demonize the NAACP and the Congressional Black and Hispanic Caucuses by comparing them to white nationalists.

My bad. I hope you’ll forgive this one last “feeding of the troll,” if only for the reason that perhaps other bloggers will not fall for LaShawn’s antics as I have.

Of course, it’s hard for me not to be amused by some of the new friends that LaShawn has attracted with her defense of standing up for “white pride.” Check out this comment, which originates from a “friend” of Prussian Blue’s mother, April Gaede:

For us at this stage, everyone who is not a White nationalist is a potential enemy, and we are even careful among other White nationalists. We are always on the lookout for an “informant” who is either selling our information to local journalists who are preparing an “expose” of the local “evil Nazis” or even a government agent who is trying to involve us in a criminal conspiracy. We can’t speak out in public. A letter to the editor can get one of us or even our spouse fired from a crappy corporate job, possibly resulting in divorce. The local elites don’t care if this breaks up a family, or destroys their livelihood and causes great disruption in their children. They beat up on a “racist,” and believe themselves quite virtuous and angelic for doing so, and are get a pat on the head and a dog biscuit from the mass media for doing so.

So yeah, you can say we are full of HATE. Who wouldn’t be?

I appreciate the gestures by both Julia Gorin and La Shawn Barber to attempt to “amnesty” White nationalists. Singling us out as “the ideology of mass murder” is a form of psychological warfare. Any race will commit mass murder under the right circumstances. The White race has been a technological and scientific race — we do things in a big way. Bach concertos, the internal combustion engine, the discovery and manipulation of microbiology, and the battlefields of the two World Wars are all of a piece.


Sure we killed the Native Americans. They would have killed us if they had better guns. They killed each other. So we are a warlike people. So are a lot of peoples out there.

At this point, you still have a choice. Whites are in a weakened state, but we don’t plan to stay this way. Right now, we don’t have too many friends. If things go our way, we will have NO reason to “make any deals” with anyone who is not White.

If a coalition of non-White conservatives really puts some energy into taking the “Hitler blood libel” off of White nationalists, and actually succeeds getting us an “amnesty” into mainstream politics I think you’ll see that we aren’t monsters. Just because we want to perpetuate our race, does not by necessity mean at the cost of others. There is a lot of anger on the White nationalist sites, for reasons I described above. We are actively marginalized, and I admit I am very angry about it, though I function just fine in society. I’m always ready to “go off” verbally on hypocritical small “w” white liberals (if it’s “safe” to do so, that is, if I won’t lose my job), and they retreat when they get a hint of the pent up rage and ferocity in me. I hate white liberals more than anything.

Anyway, White nationalists are quietly preparing for Peak Oil and social collapse. We believe that serious social disruption is in the offing, and our position will be improved even as society is going to hell. Or we’ll all die, that’s fine too.

I’ve spent enough time wading through this filth while “debating” Holocaust deniers, and that’s exactly the sort of rhetoric white power rangers use all the time. That’s the way they talk, because that’s what they believe.

And that‘s why white power ranger groups like the National Vanguard are not the same as the NAACP, LaShawn. I hope you enjoy your new friends. If they ever come to power, I’m sure they’ll treat you well.

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university.
