DSCI Pastor Martin Lindstedt's Websites Taken Down By Host Under Pressure From DMCA Serial Complainant

Update April 18th: It looks like there's another reason why Pastor Lindstedt's website is down. According to RFC Express, Bryan Reo filed a copyright infringement lawsuit (Case No. 1:14-cv-00816-JG) against Lindstedt in the United States District Court, Northern District of Ohio, on April 16th, 2014. Reo is filing in forma pauperis, which means he's serving as his own attorney. Seven different exhibits representing certain pages and posts from Whitenationalist.org are referenced in the docket text, but if I want to see more court documents, I would have to pay RFC Express 99 cents per document. Not interested in that at this time.

The mystery as to the whereabouts of Christian Identity Pastor Martin Lindstedt's websites (Whitenationalist.org) has been resolved. According to an e-mail received from Pastor Lindstedt on one of my accounts, his websites were taken down by the host after Bryan Reo, the serial complainant who's been plaguing Pastor Lindstedt for four years, threatened to sue CrisisHost (and possibly DreamHost). I first noticed that Lindstedt's websites were gone around April 14th when the Glenn Miller story broke and I was looking for his reaction to it.

The e-mail is actually his DMCA Counter-Notice challenging Bryan Reo's complaint. Even though CrisisHost is mentioned in the e-mail, the counter-notice was submitted to the DreamHost abuse service center on Monday, April 15th, 2014, which means that he must have switched to DreamHost in the interim. Here's the most pertinent part of the e-mail:

7) After setting up some secret web pages and forums and taking a web vacation for six months or so, Pastor Lindstedt found an actual free speech hosting company in CrisisHost.com. However, within a day of setting up the new www.whitenationalist.org, Bryan Reo was making bogus complaints against it with the new Host, Joshua Singer, even before the main web page and forum were set up. Then for the next year from June 2011 to July 2012, Pastor Lindstedt took care of these new bogus DMCA complaints by simply deleting anything claimed to be a copyright infringement or making a substitution. Once Bryan Reo claimed that Lindstedt used a picture of Reo in a ROTC uniform. Lindstedt substituted a picture of a female orang-a-tang drinking its own urine and claiming that this picture was of Bryan Reo.

8) After over a year of this intensive harassment and making of bogus and fraudulent DMCA take-down notices, Bryan Reo, changed tactics. Instead, Bryan Reo started threatening to sue CrisisHost for daring to host Lindstedt, even though the DMCA says that Hosting companies have absolute immunity from litigation if they follow the DMCA. However, after the fourth or fifth such extortionary threat, in May 2013, Joshua Singer said that he was getting out of the hosting business. Pastor Lindstedt said that his contract lasted until June 30, 2013. However, although Lindstedt bought service on another hosting company and created a backup web page and forum, Lindstedt kept his web page and forum and blogs on CrisisHost, fully intending to pay Singer for the services used.

9) On Saturday, April 5, 2014, Singer notifed Lindstedt that Bryan Reo was back to making extortionary threats to sue him. Why was Lindstedt still on his server? Lindstedt said that he would be gone well before April 15, 2014, and asked for three days time to "move along" and that Lindstedt would pay 10/12th of $55 for using CrisisHost services for ten months past the time. Joshua Singer agreed. And upon Bryan Reo's continuing extortionary demands, said that Lindstedt would be gone by Wednesday [April 16th].

A substitute link for what might be a replacement website has been provided, but it is still under construction:

In addition, Pastor Lindstedt continues to host Da Dik-Dik Show on Talkshoe every Sunday and Thursday night:

-- http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/talkCast.jsp?masterId=111132&cmd=tc

Bryan Reo's obsession with Martin Lindstedt proves that he is no friend of the white racialist community. His lack of respect for the First Amendment is appalling. Pastor Lindstedt not only provides valuable, if somewhat incisive, perspective on the Christian Identity community and its leading lights, but also posted considerable background information on his time with militia groups as well as his history of seeking elective office. Reo's action is all part of an upsurge in DMCA takedown abuses, which Film Industry Network suggests could be brought under control by four changes:

1. Charge a small fee for DMCA takedown requests (And refund that fee if it is legitimate)
2. Prevent automatic content removals without a physical review (Unrealistic at this point unless a system is put into place that discourages abuse)
3. Make it abundantly clear how a DMCA works, and when it should be used
4. Give content owners the opportunity to defend and prove the DMCA takedown is not legitimate (If no defense is available, then it should be taken down.

The entire e-mail from Lindstedt, with the exception of Bryan Reo's address being deleted, is presented after the jump:

SPLC Report About "100 People Murdered By Stormfront Users" Regurgitates All The Old Stereotypes About White Racialists; A Descent Into Gutter Journalism

On April 17th, 2014, the Southern Poverty Law Center released their loudly-ballyhooed report about how "Stormfront users murdered almost 100 people during the past five years". This report represents a new low in gutter journalism on their part; there's not even a pretense of objectivity within. Read the SPLC's blog post and comments about it HERE, and the actual report HERE. The SPLC also links to a seven-page PDF report entitled "White Homicide Worldwide" (if it doesn't load the first time, refresh the page). Of course, the SPLC does NOT provide an enumerated list of all 100 killings or the perpetrators; they merely highlight what they consider the most prominent events. NBC News has now picked up the story, and quotes Heidi Beirich as hysterically shrieking “Stormfront is the murder capital of the racist Internet...It has been a magnet for the deadly and deranged."

The report is far too long to expend time for a detailed analysis. I will simply highlight some of the more egregious statements. First, the SPLC presents the standard stereotype of a white racialist being a single trev who lives in the basement with his mommy or some other female figure (note that the term "trev" comes from the F2BBS.com e-biz board and describes a geek who's so consumed with cyberspace that he has no life outside of it):

A typical murderer drawn to the racist forum Stormfront.org is a frustrated, unemployed, white adult male living with his mother or an estranged spouse or girlfriend. She is the sole provider in the household. Forensic psychologists call him a “wound collector.” Instead of building his resume, seeking employment or further education, he projects his grievances on society and searches the Internet for an excuse or an explanation unrelated to his behavior or the choices he has made in life.

Does Dr. David Duke live in a basement with his mommy? No, he's a three-time author, a videographer, and an international traveler with a PhD. What about April Gaede? Hell, no; she's a responsible wife and mother who is an established resident of the Kalispell community. Harold Covington? Yes, he's single, but he's hardly a basement trev; instead, he has sacrificed an ordinary family life to dedicate himself full time to the Cause through his slowly-but-steadily-growing Northwest Front. Dr. William Pierce? He was a respected academic who formed the most successful white organization in the last 30 years, the National Alliance. Jared Taylor? Another highly-respected academic. But the SPLC either minimizes or ignores these examples because they don't cater to their popular stereotypes of white racialists, and don't bring in the donations.

Ukrainian Nationalists Successfully Confront Antifa Scum In Chicago

While many of us are still flummoxed over Glenn Miller's alleged meltdown in Overland Park (a reminder that he is still innocent until proven guilty in a court of law), life goes on, the Cause remains just, and according to this Stormfront thread, a group of Ukrainian nationalists successfully confronted antifa scum in Chicago on the antifas' own turf. Looks like a reversal of Tinley Park. I found no mainstream media account of this confrontation.

The original source of the information is an antifa website called The Red Phoenix, but I will try to render a serviceable translation. The antifa were sponsoring a "teach-in" at United Electric Hall on S. Ashland in Chicago on April 12th, 2014. Apparently some Ukrainian nationalists, aware of the Chicago antifas' reputation for unprovoked gratuitous violence against those who think differently than them, had infiltrated the gathering to take pictures of the antifa leaders. The alleged purpose was to publicize the photos to warn the greater community against them. The nationalists were detected and forced to leave, after which forty Maidan supporters and at least one “Right Sector” supporter, displaying the flags of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army and other related regalia, attempted to invade the venue to teach the antifa a lesson. Antifa security kept the nationalists from reaching the participants by actively holding them back as they attempted entry through the double-doors of the Union Hall. Police were summoned, and the nationalists sought to press charges against the antifa, but after police dissuaded them from pressing charges due to insufficient pretext, the nationalists decided they had accomplished their mission and left with their heads held high.

Both Maidan and Right Sector are nationalist groups which strive to defend Ukrainian territorial and political integrity and which are opposed to Russian actions against the Ukraine. This poses a dilemma for white racialists worldwide, because it presents the spectre of Ukrainian whites battling against Russian whites. The recent history of the region is quite complex; don't forget, the Bolsheviks reinvented borders and moved entire peoples (like the Crimean Tatars) around like pawns on a chessboard. In 1954, Soviet General Secretary Nikita Khrushchev, who was Ukrainian, transferred the Crimea to the Ukraine even though the Crimea was predominantly Russian; since the Soviet Union governed the entire area, it didn't occur to the Russian majority that they would eventually be living in a foreign country. But when the Ukraine became independent in 1992, Russians in the Crimea suddenly found themselves living in a foreign country. In fact, every former Soviet republic which achieved independence since 1992 contains large numbers of Russians.

How would you feel if you were a white person living in Arizona and Arizona suddenly became part of Mexico?

On the other hand, Russian President Vladimir Putin's well-intentioned efforts to resolve the problem with minimal fuss have generated concern. In 2008, the Russians forcibly amputated South Ossetia and Abkhazia from Georgia. Now the Russians have amputated the Crimea from the Ukraine. Before each event, the Russians granted passports on demand to the residents of these regions to strengthen the pretext for amputation. Because Russia has done this a second time, it is appropriate to question whether or not Russia will try this wherever there is a significant Russian minority. Will Estonia or Latvia be next? Is it fair to ask Russia's neighbors to live with that uncertainty?

Nevertheless, Putin has done some good things for Russia. He eliminated the malaise of the Yeltsin regime, during which Russia had become the toy of plutocrats. Putin has taken a strong stand against the promotion and statutory protection of the homosexual lifestyle, prohibiting gay pride marches and the dissemination of pro-gay propaganda to minors. And when the seven Pussy Riot whores desecrated a Russian Orthodox cathedral with their obscene filth in February 2012, Russia came down hard, jailing two of them for two years. In a world awash with the corruption of ZOG Babylon the Third and Final, Russia, under Putin's leadership, stands out as a beacon of righteousness.

When two white nations threaten to square off in conflict, it is difficult to take sides. The only thing we can do is to ask both sides not to allow themselves to be coopted by outsiders who have neither the interests of Russia not the Ukraine at heart. Perhaps a deal can be reached in which Ukraine keeps their remaining territory and gets back titular sovereignty over the Crimea (Russia would retain military basing rights), but would partially subsidize the relocation of Russian Ukrainians who want to move back to Russia.

Two Federal Public Defenders With Capital Case Experience Appointed For Frazier Glenn Miller; Authorities Now Calling it A "Hate Crime"

From the Johnson County Sheriff
Continuing coverage of the Frazier Glenn Miller case. Although the three victims are not Jewish, on April 14th, 2014, Barry Grissom, the U.S. attorney for Kansas, said Frazier Glenn Miller will face federal hate crime charges based on allegations that he was motivated by bias. Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass expressed his agreement with the feds during an 11:30 A.M. news conference. Hate crime statutes are now based solely upon race or ethnicity, but also upon perceived race or ethnicity, which means that if Miller perceived his alleged victims to be Jewish, he could be indicted for hate crimes even if his alleged victims were not Jewish. Perhaps this news video of the arrest, with Miller yelling "Heil Hitler" at the 0;35 point, gave them fuel for their hate crime allegations:

In addition, the state of Kansas proposes to take their whack at Miller as well. District Attorney Steve Howe said that Miller could be charged with murder as soon as Tuesday April 15th in Johnson County District Court. Kansas does have the death penalty, although prosecutors have not yet announced whether or not they'll seek it. The Feds can also seek the death penalty.

Update April 15th: The state will go first. The state will file a single capital murder charge in the killing of both Reat Underwood and his grandfather, William Lewis Corporon. Because the deaths of Reat and his grandfather were part of a single act, they comprise a single act under Kansas law even though two deaths occurred. The state also filed a premeditated murder charge in the killing of Terri LaManno. The state will consider seeking the death penalty, but a decision won't be made until after a preliminary hearing at the earliest. Federal prosecutors anticipate filing charges, possibly hate crime charges, in the coming weeks, but will allow the state to proceed first. Miller is being held in lieu of a $10 million bond.

Two public defenders in Kansas were appointed to represent Miller in any federal hate crimes prosecution. Kansas Federal Public Defender Melody Brannon Evans and Kirk Redmond, her first assistant, will represent him should he be charged in a criminal complaint or, later, by grand jury indictment. Both have worked capital cases and are qualified to do so under federal rules. Evans was appointed a Federal Public Defender for the District of Kansas on January 17th, 2014; she has served her entire career providing indigent defense. She and Redmond both post to the Kansas Public Defender blog.

Update April 15th: To defend against the state charges, Magistrate Judge Dan Vokins appointed Ron Evans, head of the Kansas death penalty defense team, to represent Miller, who made a very brief court appearance by video Tuesday afternoon from the Johnson County Detention Center. Miller arrived at the jail video room and left it in a wheelchair pushed by a jailer. He wore a tear-away jail uniform. According to jail records, he is being held in administrative segregation on suicide watch. Judge Vokins set Miller’s next hearing for 9:30 a.m. April 24th, which will be a scheduling conference.

Reuters reports that FBI agent Michael Kaste said the FBI had been aware of Miller and his background but was not monitoring him and had no warnings of the attacks. He said that it did not matter that the victims were not Jewish because hate crime violation are tied to the biases and beliefs of the suspect that motivate the crime, not the identities of the victims. Although the FBI believes Miller acted alone, they are still investigating. The go-to source for white racialist discussion of the case is still on Stormfront.

The case is attracting the attention of some of the most prominent people in the United States. First, President Barack Obama issued the following statement:

This afternoon we heard reports of a horrific shooting in Overland Park, Kansas. Michelle and I offer our thoughts and prayers to the families and friends who lost a loved one and everyone affected by this tragedy. I have asked my team to stay in close touch with our federal, state and local partners and provide the necessary resources to support the ongoing investigation. While we do not know all of the details surrounding today’s shooting, the initial reports are heartbreaking. I want to offer my condolences to all the families trying to make sense of this difficult situation and pledge the full support from the federal government as we heal and cope during this trying time.

Today, Attorney General Eric Holder issued the following statement:

“I was horrified to learn of this weekend’s tragic shootings outside Kansas City. These senseless acts of violence are all the more heartbreaking as they were perpetrated on the eve of the solemn occasion of Passover. Justice Department prosecutors will work with their state and local counterparts to provide all available support and to determine whether the federal hate crimes statute is implicated in this case. “No matter what, we will do everything in our power to ensure justice is served in this case on behalf of the victims and their families. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by these heinous acts.”

Kansas Republican Governor Sam Brownback vowed to bring those responsible to justice.

"My heart and prayers are with all those who were affected by today's events. We will pursue justice aggressively for these victims and criminal charges against the perpetrator or perpetrators to the full extent of the law."

Frazier Glenn Miller has the full weight of the justice system arrayed against him.

White Racialist Reaction To Frazier Glenn Miller's Arrest For Murder

Update: Reaction from ANP Chairman Rocky Suhayda, who was actually a unit leader in the old White Patriot Party, now appended at the end of this post.

From the Johnson County Sheriff
The Craig Cobb meltdown in Leith, ND was so dispiriting that it caused me to lose interest in this blog and white racialism for over six months. However, the arrest of Frazier Glenn Miller causes me to activate this blog once again in order to rebut the lies and smears that will invariably be directed towards white racialists as a result of this tragedy. If Frazier Glenn Miller is proven to be guilty of these three murders beyond reasonable doubt in a court of law, it will be an ignominous end to a distinguished career as a white racialist for him. It will be used to launch campaigns to erode both First Amendment and Second Amendment freedoms not only for white racialists, but also for pro-family activists and paleoconservatives just as the SPLC has done in recent years. In their analysis of the Miller situation, the SPLC is already hysterically referring to "racist killers...hiding among us in plain sight" in an effort to exploit the situation and troll for increased donations to their cause. The SPLC even claims that "a forthcoming two-year study by the SPLC will show that nearly 100 people in the last five years have been murdered by active users on another prominent racist website, Stormfront.org", even though many of them were undoubtedly banned from posting on Stormfront long before they took action.

Reaction from white racialists has been posted on Stormfront, the Vanguard News Network Forum, the American Nazi Party, Occidental Dissent, Covenant People's Ministry (Pastor Jeromy Visser's forum), and on WhiteNations. Endzog publishes what is called a "tribute" to Glenn Miller, which does not excuse what he allegedly did at Overland Park, but which attempts to ensure his previous activism is not ignored. Pastor Martin Lindstedt's Whitenationalist.org seems to have disappeared from the Internet, perhaps taken down as recently as April 9th; Lindstedt was a major critic of Glenn Miller. Leading white racialist personalities holding forth include Don Black, Tom Metzger, Billy Roper, Hunter Wallace, and Harold Covington. Excerpts from these forums and people are posted after the jump:
