The Internet Anti-Fascist: #48, Sunday, 21 December 1997 ______________________________________________________________________

ANTI-FASCIST ACTION ALERT #8-B Cybernazi "Internet Blitzkreig"

I've spent time checking the WebSideStory's Top 1000 Organizations sites to get some more information on the story that Nizkor's Ken McVay reported. WebSideStory is recording visits (hits) to different web sites, on its home page, at: <http://hitbox.com/wc/world.100.Organizations.html>

The World Church of the Creator essentially believes that aggressive racism is their religion and urges RAHOWA ("RAcial HOly WAr"). They have announced an "Internet Blitzkrieg." Normally, I don't worry too much about any grand cybernazi alliance these days; multiple would-be supreme Fuehrers makes co-operation difficult.

However, a look at WebSideStory reveals that the various neo- (and not- so-neo) Nazi groups have cooked something up. There are four fascist web sites listed in the top 25:

1. Stormfront White Nationalist Resource (701 hit per day) 6. American Knights [as in KKK] Realm of Delaware (204) 11. WPWW Holohoax the BIG Jew LIE (141) 24. The World Church of the Creator (57)

The "New Order Knights [of the Ku Klux Klan ]" is also moving up.

The two anti-fascist groups listed are:

4. Nizkor Project, for Holocaust Education (366) 19. The Einsatzgruppen Archives (TEA) (85)

You can imagine the publicity that the cybernazis will generate if the Stormfront web page stays #1 for very long!

TINAF readers should be able to significantly help Nizkor and TEA by visiting the sites. We have 1,000 readers. Even if you are only on the net once a week, this would add some 150+ daily hits to their web sites. This is a *rock-bottom minimum.* Many of you spend so much time on the net you refer to external reality as "virtual cyberspace." One hit from every reader every day would put Nizkor over the top with more visits than all of the cybernaiz sites combined. Multiple hits would create a significant defeat for the "Blitzkreig."

Addresses for the WebSideStory hit counters at Nizkor and TEA are:

<http://www.nizkor.org/index.html> <http://www.pgonline.com/electriczen/>

I set up Nizkor as my default web address. Internet Explorer requires a default and I thought Nizkor better than Microsoft. If you want to do this, you use the View/Options/Navigation menu and enter Nizkor's URL in the "Address:" field of the window that opens. Now, whenever you surf the web, you go first to Nizkor.

I spend an enormous amount of time on the web. After I've visited a site once I make sure to set my browser so I don't download things like pictures and cookies. This is particularly time-saving if you have a slower modem since the overall data you might download are 50-95% graphics. In Microsoft's Internet Explorer, go to View/Options/General and in the Multimedia window, make sure the "Show pictures" box is not checked.

This lets me hit a web site and download the text-only versions in about 15 seconds. Where else can you face down a fascist "Internet Blitzkreig" so easily!

(PS: For formal legal reasons I am not sure that Nizkor styles itself "anti-fascist." But any group that does their work against Holocaust Revisionism surely deserves informal inclusion among anti-fascists.)

The National Asian Pacific American Legal Consortium in Washington, DC, keeps regular track of hate crimes against Asian Americans. As you may know, hate crimes against Asian Americans have gone up each year since NAPALC has started tracking them. This year it was up 18% above the year before. I'd even warrant that they've gone up since the infamous Vincent Chin murder in Detroit, though the national crime rate has allegedly fallen. Since those times, prosecutors have been able to successfully get convictions against our community's assailants more often than not, but, it's spotty. There's an increasing number of police brutality cases, and the extremist-led Republicans continue to isolate Asian American donors as so-called foreign agents in an attempt to financially weaken and destroy the DNC. These are hostile times. Generally I do not give the time of day to the right wing flab that comes across my desktop but recently we have been receiving more than usual, so I have taken some time to return fire against the somewhat more coherent ones. Makes me wonder what's going on. Well, I guess that's a sign we have been making progress, or else there would be no backlash.

While not entirely germain to organizing in the US, I might also point your attention to the situation in Canada and particularly Australia, also traditionally white-colonized native countries, where the discourse about immigration, particularly regarding Asian immigrants, is similar to the kinds of 80s Japanbashing here, although it is much more openly directed towards Asian citizens of those countries. The conservative parties and of course their national front cousins are engaged in a number of activities, the least of which is a move to limit immigration to those countries from Asia.

EUROMONEY FOR EUGENICIST FARMERS [via reader Marek Kohn and the "Race Gallery" web site]

The European Union's agricultural fund has given =A375,000 to the German- based Society for Biological Anthropology, Eugenics, and Behavioural Research, for a farm in southern Sweden where the Society claims to be practising "ecological agriculture". The group's leader J=FCrgen Rieger organised a meeting of far-right activists in Hetendorf, central Germany, earlier this year. Die Woche, as reported by the Independent (London), 18 December.

Background from The Race Gallery, pp 54-55:

"Neue Anthropologie was published by the Gesellschaft f=FCr Biologische Anthropologie, Eugenik, und Verhaltensforschung (Society for Biological Anthropology, Eugenics, and Behavioural Research), under the editorship of J=FCrgen Rieger. Its first issue honoured Fritz Lenz on the occasion of his eighty-fifth birthday. Rieger had previously paid tribute to Hans G=FCnther at meetings of the Northern League, where he urged his fellow Nordics to "fight for a Teutonic confederation". In 1977, he helped organise a meeting on 'Eternal Penitence for Hitler?', featuring Arnold Butz, who specialises in denying the extermination of the Jews, and Gerhard Frey, the chairman of the ultra-right Deutschen Volksunion. Several active neo-Nazis were members of the Board of Scientific Advisors; as was the founder of the hereditarian IQ school, Arthur Jensen." source: Michael Billig, 'Psychology, Racism and Fascism', A., F. & R. Publications, Birmingham, 1979.
