VERY Ill Bill : Neo-Nazi White asks for new judge

Poor old Bill. It’s hard enough trying to be a Hollywood Nazi, let alone Fuehrer, but Bill — aka William A. White — has gotten into trouble for his simply outrageous sense of humour. And for being the leader of the ‘American National Socialist Workers Party’ (July 2006–October 2008). And being a bankrupt. And ah, encouraging harm to a juror. Arrested in October, Bill is now seeking a new judge. Thus:

Neo-Nazi White asks for new judge

A neo-Nazi who once applauded the murder of a Chicago judge’s family members should have a judge from outside that city preside over his trial, defense lawyers and prosecutors said. William A. White of Roanoke, who is awaiting trial in Chicago on a charge of encouraging violence against a juror, had asked for a new judge based on his own Internet writings from four years ago. Shortly after the husband and mother of federal Judge Joan Lefkow were found shot to death in their Chicago home, White wrote on his Web site that he didn’t feel bad about the crime. “In fact, when I heard the story I laughed,” White wrote in a post that credited white supremacists for the killings.” ‘Good for them!’ was my first thought.”

…No trial date has been set for White. Judge William Hibbler is expected to rule on the motion for a new judge by April 2, the next scheduled hearing in the case.

D’oh!

Joan Lefkow was of course the Judge that ruled against Pontifex Maximus Matt Hale‘s use of the term “Church of the Creator” in a trademark infringement case in July 2002.

Hale raged against the judge. In early December, he sent out an E-mail about the case that quoted from The White Man’s Bible. “We have every right to declare [Jews] open criminals for violating the Constitution,” he wrote. “They then obviously are the criminals and we can then treat them like the criminal dogs that they are and take the law into our own hands. This is the obvious, logical thing to do. We must then meet force with force, and open warfare exists.”

Hale went to jail in April 2005, sentenced to 40 years in a federal prison after a judge gave him the maximum sentence for plotting to assassinate a federal judge: Joan Lefkow.

The Religion Formerly Known As The (World) Church of the Creator/RaHoWa (COTC, WCOTC, WCOTR), is now known as ‘The Creativity Movement’: “The Creativity Movement is a Professional, Non-Violent, Progressive Pro-White Religion. We promote White Civil Rights, White Self-Determination, and White Liberation via 100% legal activism. We do not promote, tolerate nor incite illegal activity.”

TCM also endorse the work of Combat-18. Australian fans of Combat-18 have been accused of stealing the ashes of David Lane, which are due to be scattered by pea-brained White supremacists in Perth any day now.

In the small town of Splitsville, USA, TCM is pitted against ‘The Creativity Alliance’. In Australia, the pointy TCM hat sits on the head of Patrick O’Sullivan. (See: Creative (and c r e e p y) Australians, November 3, 2008.)

As for Bill, in September last year he gave an interview (‘Stunned’ white supremacists keep low profile in campaign, Jim Rutenberg, October 21, 2008). According to Rutemberg:

…the leadership [of the radical right in the US] is plagued by scandal and infighting in the absence of a unifying group like the Ku Klux Klan, which is no longer pre-eminent even among open racists, or figures like the former KKK leader David Duke, whose power waned after he was convicted on fraud charges early this decade. Duke has, in fact, written positively about the prospect of Obama’s being elected, though arguing it would stir a white backlash and “result in a dramatic increase in our ranks.”

“There’s a real problem,” White said in the interview last month, “in what’s called the ‘white movement.’ One, there’s a lot of people who are just mentally ill, and we deal with those a lot. No. 2, there are people who have serious sexual problems.”

White, 31, who says he has a following of at least 1,200 people, considers himself a reformer in the white movement. A landlord of low-income tenants of all races, he devotes as much of his energy to attacking rival leaders he hopes to purge from the supremacist leadership as he does attacking Jews and blacks.

1,200 followers? Um, sure.

He certainly has very few friends.

    I thought the left spent their time fighting the System not chortling over a Bill White. You have just as many nut balls as the right. Quit wasting your time White has no power.
    Washington and Wall Street should be taking up all your time. Unless! Oh no! You couldn’t [be] a Trojan horse could you?

    As usual, you are bang on the money, Tom.

  3. “I advise that this web site will cease to be that of the Brisbane branch as of March 30 due to party member objections to some items of content and subsequent censorship by party officials. Another emerging party branch will utilise the domain name. I will be concentrating on my other interests.”

    Goodness, what could have John “I prefer virile young men” Drew have said that upset “party officials”. Well luckily for the passing readers of this site, I found the original text:

    “The Big Gay Day in Brisbane was a huge success. Massive crowds in the city. I attended the final judging of the Mr.Q contest. What fabulously built and well hung chaps they were too. I was most impressed. For more information see [Queensland Gay & Lesbian News].”

    Oh behave!

    “Voters in the March 21 Queensland election are advised by me to vote mainly for the Greens due to their more radical environmental policies which are desperately needed.”

  5. @ndy says:

    Alternatively, perhaps Jim Perren lost at tennis?

    Or…

    “Do your bit for greenhouse gas emission reduction by becoming a vegetarian. Australia First supports the Vegetarian Society in its efforts to raise awareness of the ugly environmental reality of meat and chicken production, distribution and consumption.”

    Australia First and the The Vegetarian and Vegan Society of Queensland!

  6. Lanklan says:

    Oh and @ndy, don’t forget that “If you become a vegetarian a quite adequate protein intake can be had from 3 protein powder milkshakes a day. A hand shaker using water and/or soy milk can also be used.” Because surely no vegetarian/vegan could have an adequate protein intake without supplementing their diet with chemically synthesised proteins which generate thousands of tonnes in greenhouse gases in both the production and transport of the product.

    Thanks for the tip though John… I was really worried that my vegan diet would mean that I couldn’t live up to the male beauty standards of “the Drew”.

    ‘Washington and Wall Street’

    Que?

    Is that a misprint for Beijing and Saudi Arabia?

    Washington and Wall Street are now classical ‘paper tigers’ in case yr not paying the slightest bit of attention.
