Ever since the bizarre “fuhrer” of YouTube, John Alan Martinson Jr., closed down shop at the hate site Jewish Crime Network, this rag-tag misfit - who apparently can’t even afford a decent outfit and had to beg donations from his followers for a camcorder to record his videos - has popped up once again as the head of the redux known as the One World Nazi Party.
Martinson has managed to glean a following for his new endeavor, but has drawn a lot of ire from the one faction of antisemites that apparently he had hoped to align himself with - the mainstream white nationalist community. Somehow, Martinson wanted to convince them that together, they could fight the common enemy which, of course, is the age-old whipping boy when a society experiences hardships, economic downturns, and political upheavals - the Jews.
This writer hasn’t decided yet as of this posting whether or not the OWNP is intended to be the next “evolution” of antisemitism, or whether this is one giant scam by Martinson to try to bilk his fellow bigots out of gas and grocery money. Several of Martinson’s former associates at the JCN, including Scott Roberts, Adam Austin, and the YouTuber known as RV, have disassociated themselves from this new movement, and one has come out vocally, questioning Martinson’s motives and integrity.
Martinson, like most self-styled neo-nazis, suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder, or NPD. The definition is "a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and a lack of empathy”. The way the man struts around like a peacock, demanding support and attention, the seeming lack of compassion for Holocaust victims, and his referring to Jews as “parasites” , “vermin”, and calling on U.S. troops in Iraq to go AWOL, return home, and in his words “turn their guns on the REAL problem” (aka Jews) - would definitely place him in that category.
One thing is certain - such infighting among these groups bodes well for us in the antifa movement. A lot of us have been working behind the scenes to combat this and other groups and movements, collecting information, flagging their YouTube, Facebook, Blogger, and mySpace accounts, and infiltrating their ranks to glean intel on their activities. It may sound strange, but where the OWNP is concerned, the best ally we may have in this fight are the white supremacist organizations themselves.
Many of the mainstream hate groups have openly rejected Martinson and his noveau nazi party on the basis of race. Martinson is from a multi-ethnic background, and that has caused a lot of tension among the internet pro-hate groups. It is probably what caused several YouTube neo-nazis including Scott Roberts to resign from the “board of directors” of the former Jewish Crime Network.
We must fight anti-semitism by all means at our disposal within the limits of the law. Any person or organization or country that engages in anti-semitic propaganda must be sued and prosecuted. The publication of anti-semitic propaganda in any media should be disqualified and prohibited. In countries where anti-semitism is rampant, its significance and dangers must be inculcated in the education system.
We must not be silent in the face of hate, whoever disseminates it. In a great part of the world there is legislation against anti-semitic propaganda, holocaust denial and the use of forbidden symbols (such as Nazi symbols). In those places where there is legislation we should make sure that the laws are enforced and offenders are punished. In those places where there is no legislation we must act to legislate against anti-semitism, as well as bigotry in all its forms.
Internet Hate describes the rapidly expanding practice utilized by racists and extremists to place anti-Semitic, racist, and other hateful material on the World Wide Web. The growth of the Internet has enabled bigoted and sometimes violent messages to reach a much wider and broader audience than ever before. Consequently, these messages of hate have become widely accessible online - in homes, offices, schools, and libraries.
For years extremists have used printing of every kind -- books, pamphlets, posters, newspapers, magazines -- to get their message out. They have also tried to use modern inventions such as movies. radio, television, recorded audio and video tape and even telephone messages to spread their beliefs. So it is not surprising that they have decided to take their hate to the Internet. The Internet lets them reach millions with a click of a mouse.
Haters use the World Wide Web with its colorful web pages, sounds, and images to push propaganda attacking their enemies. Some of these pages suggest that violent action is needed. Old lies are reprinted and new ones are created. Neo-Nazi Skinheads try to sell the latest CDs filled with calls for "racial holy war."
It is fairly easy to create a simple Web page. Many bigots have. They often try to create the false impression that many people are involved in their activities. This frightens their targets and encourages supporters.
The number of racists and anti-Semites is small compared to the rest of the population; in addition, they are fairly spread out. Yet, on the Internet, they can find people who think like them, which strengthens their beliefs and makes them feel less isolate.
Because extremists on the Internet can hide their real identity behind screen names and addresses (like anyone else), they feel free to attack those they hate. They realize there is no way for anyone to know who they are.
This blog was created to shine a light on who these haters are, where they hang out on the web, and the methods they employ to try and intimidate their victims.
