Because of Stormfront's disproportionate size and prominence in the white nationalist community, media and other observers zoomed in on it first in order to get material for their stories. And since Stormfront webmaster Don Black lives in West Palm Beach, WPTV Channel 5 sought Black's reaction; one of the objectives of this post is to get all of Black's quotes from media sources in one place.
From WPTV Channel 5:
"All of our, almost all of our posters on Stormfront have condemned it. It is counterproductive. There is no reason to kill innocent people even though we oppose third world immigration into this country," said Donald Black, who runs Stormfront.
Black condemned the Wisconsin shooting, but stood by his site's goals - to protect white people from what he called third world immigration. "We provide a community for like-minded people who want to work for their values, their heritage, their interests just like every other group, every other racial and ethnic group does, and is applauded for doing, [but] because we do it, we're called haters and instigators of violence." Black says there are about a hundred people in the West Palm Beach area who participate on Stormfront's message boards. He also says they occasionally meet, and that they may hold another meeting soon.
WTSP Channel 10 recorded the following reaction from Don Black:
"That is unfortunate and it does hurt our cause," said Stormfront founder Don Black. "Almost everyone on Stormfront has condemned what he did. And unfortunately there is nothing we can do about it." Black acknowledges his distaste for non-white immigrants in America, saying "We think Sikhs belong back in India, Mexicans back in Mexico. We believe this nation was founded on white European principles, by white European settlers, and it should remain a nation that reflects that heritage and those values."
But Black also says in no way does he condone violence. "If I had any idea he might be contemplating something like this, I would strongly discourage him. We don't think these people deserve to be killed, particularly the Sikhs." Instead, he concentrates on his own mission, preserving the white race in America. "We love our own people," insists Black. "We're promoting our heritage, our values, just as every other race has the right to do."
Don Black's contentions are validated by the discourse in two separate Stormfront threads, one 52-page monster entitled "Here we go again: Mass Shooting At Sikh Temple In Oak Creek, Wisconsin", and a shorter thread entitled "U.S. Racists Worried Over Sikh Killings (Stormfront Members Quoted)". Thus Jeffrey Imm's pathetic attempts to discredit Stormfront by cherry-picking eight inflammatory posts out of two major Stormfront threads proves to be an epic fail.
