First as tragedy
Then as farce
A two-year study by the Intelligence Report shows that registered Stormfront users have been disproportionately responsible for some of the most lethal hate crimes and mass killings since the site was put up in 1995. In the past five years alone, Stormfront members have murdered close to 100 people.
—Report by Southern Poverty Law Center[1]

Stormfront is the greatest, yet most-underrated, Billy Joel album a giant-ass Neo-Nazi website, one of the earliest to exist. Been around for decades! It is mostly Ameri-centric, although there is some bleed-over with extremist groups in Europe.

Stormfront is, in its own words, "a racialist discussion board for pro-white activists and anyone else interested in white survival." Activities include: circle-jerking over how the white race is superior, historical revisionism, Holocaust denial, vehemently opposing race-mixing, and listening to rock music. But more than anything, they love to endlessly debate who is "white" and who isn't, which very quickly escalate into flame wars and threats of banning from the administrators.

It was also the subject of a documentary film, Hate.com: Extremists on the Internet.[2]

[edit] "Mein führer! I CAN SHITPOST!"

Stormfront has had, for years, a "manual" for how internet "insurgents" should behave. (They call them Bugs. The actual program is known as Swarmfront.) A lot of it emanates from Stormfront's raiding board Swarmfront, which is dedicated to 'red pilling' Reddit and 4chan.[3][4] "Raiding" or "forum sliding" is a form of faux grass roots activism where people try to make it appear like an opinion is really popular.

The goal of the online campaign is to make gullible men feel like all of their problems in life are caused by minorities. When they find an example of anti-white sentiment, they blow it out of proportion. When they can't find one, they fabricate it themselves. They'll barrage you with worthless links and misleading statistics and force you to refute it line-by-line.[5] Essentially, it's a psychosocial tactic where you perseverate on every real and perceived slight against you, with the ultimate aim of giving yourself permission to do something horrible. If you've ever read Mein Kampf, the entire book is essentially Hitler's collected wounds which he would then use to justify slaughtering Europeans. Islamic terrorists and white supremacists also use these recruitment strategies. They just disagree on which groups should be eliminated (even then not as much as you'd think).

[edit] Murders

A report by the SPLC states that almost 100 hate crime murders can be linked to the site, and 10 murderers have links to the site.[6] Even discounting the killing spree by Anders Behring Breivik that claimed 77 lives, that is still close to two dozen people killed by members of a site with fewer than 1,800 registered members. Frazier Glenn Cross, the man suspected of the recent mass shooting at a Jewish center, was barred from Stormfront, after a disagreement with the site's owner.[7]

[edit] Font

They use Fraktur fonts — which were actually banned in 1941 by the Nazis themselves.link=wp:Antiqua%E2%80%93Fraktur_dispute#The_20th_century — to evoke a Germanic image. Their emblem is a Celtic cross, which is often used as a symbol by white supremacists. In another supreme fit of irony, while they use the Fraktur font, they also ban display or use of the swastika. You figure it out.

Their Celtic cross logo with the text "White Pride Word Wide" was once, for a long time, rendered with the Stone Age-style font "Lithos"[8]—likely to go along with the theme of their ideology.
