RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Iron March

First as tragedy
Then as farce

IronMarch was a far-right website describing itself as a fascist social network. The site was allegedly founded by Russian nationalist Alexander Slavros.

The site appears to have been home to many white supremacists, Neo-Nazis, and garden variety right-wing extremists. A slogan on the site's homepage read "Gas the kikes, race war now, 1488 boots on the ground!" Members of the forum also expressed sympathy toward Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik. The website was also where the infamous neo-Nazi paramilitary fascist groups like Atomwaffen Division and Antipodean Resistance was formed. Its blatantly racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, genocidal rhetoric would make Stormfront look like a normal political discussion board in comparison.

In February 2015, three people were arrested for planning to commit a mass shooting at a shopping mall in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Valentine's Day. One of the suspects, 23-year-old Lindsay Souvannarath of Illinois, was found to have been an active member of IronMarch and to have made many online posts in favor of fascist or neo-Nazi ideologies, despite her ironically being of mixed race herself.[1] The other two suspects, two young men from the suburbs of Halifax named Randall Shepard and James Gamble (the former being Souvannarath's online boyfriend), were also involved with online circles fascinated with dictators and spree killers, and met Souvannarath through them.

As of late 2017, Iron March seems to have gone down, for unknown reasons.
