Don And Derek Black Show Goes Silent After Nearly Three Years Of Promoting The Stormfront Pro-White Message On AM Radio

The year 2012 closed on a somewhat sad note with the announcement that after a run of nearly three years on WBPR 1340 AM in West Palm Beach, the Don and Derek Black Show will be silenced. The last show aired on December 28th. The two most important attributes to the show was that it was the only explicitly pro-White show on AM radio, and that it had the muscle of the world's largest White nationalist resource, Stormfront, behind it. Archives of the show are still available HERE as of this post.

The entire history of the show is documented on a 168-page Stormfront thread entitled "Don and Derek Black Show on AM Radio". The show was originally launched by Derek Black, who had acquired considerable experience by hosting four one-hour weekly shows on Stormfront Radio, in February 2010. One of the primary reasons for going on AM radio was to reach people, particularly those in WBPR's listening area, who had not been previously reached online, although archives of each show were eventually posted online for those worldwide who wanted to listen. According to Al Kelz, a key supporter of the show, in order to increase its mainstream appeal, the show only skirted traditional topics such as the Holocaust, 9-11, and Jewish supremacism, instead focusing more extensively upon White genocide. It was hoped that this mainstream approach would better attract advertisers and ultimately lead to regional or national syndication.

But alas, the advertisers did not come forth in sufficient numbers, thus thwarting syndication efforts. In addition, some Stormfront members were miffed to find out that their Stormfront dues were also being used to support the radio show after backlash arose over Don Black's frequent call for more donations; some recommended that the radio show, which cost $600 per week for airtime, be sacrificed if necessary to preserve Stormfront. But many were supportive of the show, and Al Kelz just recently disclosed that he had poured a significant amount of personal funds into the show.

And it was on December 26th that listeners first learned that the show might have an expiration date, when it was announced that WPBR was changing ownership. The station was being purchased from Omni-Lingual Broadcasting Corporation, headed by Emil Antonoff, by Samuel Rogatinsky; Rogatinsky's Palm Beach Radio Group LLC paid $462,500. Rogatinsky is a prominent personal injury lawyer operating out of Fort Lauderdale; Avvo.com indicates that one of his languages is Hebrew. Rogatinsky has also taken a strong stand against sex abuse, to include abuse perpetrated by Haredi rabbis.

Perhaps it's because of Rogatinsky's ethnicity that Don Black, despite being invited to remain until January 20th by the departing station owner, decided to pull the plug on December 28th. It is problematic whether a Jewish radio station owner would have allowed a White nationalist talk show to continue on his station. One alternative now being considered is to reconstitute the show on the Jeff Rense website.

The SPLC was quick to exploit this development. In their December 27th post, they insinuate that Derek Black’s commitment to the racialist cause was weakening because Derek recently posted in an online student forum that he is not a white supremacist, supports gay marriage and is pro-choice. However, Derek Black subsequently wrote, “Everything I said is true, and I also believe in White Nationalism. My post and my racial ideology are not mutually exclusive concepts, and people can believe both. WN [white nationalism] doesn’t dictate specific creeds so much as my concern about white assimilation, which I still think is very much a problem.” So once again, the SPLC's disinformation efforts fail.

Isn't this the case more often than not? Even movement bigshots are usually not able to even convince their own children of the validity of White racial nationalism and far right political ideology. The typical White racial nationalist is isolated and ostracized even by their own family. So as Don's son matures he is inevitably moving away from the far right and White racism. Past examples of movement bigshots who's kids rejected them would include Rockwell the founder of American neo-Nazism, Butler the founder of the Aryan Nations neo-Nazi Christianity, and Klassen the founder of the atheist White racial nationalist philosophy called Creativity.

We have non white and white divisions and we have gay supporters. Chairman Suhayda has been on the radio longer than the two Black clowns and has forgot more than all the podcast fakes.

Harlan Markwalder is way off base when he says that Rockwell's kids "rejected" him, implying that Rockwell made an attempt to involve them in the movement. In fact, Rockwell left his kids behind when he started the American Nazi Party in the late 1950's. Nobody in Rockwell's family was - willingly or unwillingly - a member of the ANP.

I once met a guy at a klan rally, who was built like a tank from working out, and he told a story how he liked to take his little ten year old son to the mall and have him go up to grown negroids and say "white power!" and salute. Now the blacks were afraid of the dad, but what was this teaching his kid? Perhaps if the WN movement was more sensible in its actions, the kids wouldn't reject it. Afterall, Linx and Lamb stated that there were "too many creepy people" in WN, that probably helped drive them out too! Rocky and the ANP are correct. Until WN cleans up its image, most normal people are going to continue to avoid getting involved. Just LOOK at the picture that "Harlan Markwalder" uses, is that his image of WN?

I went and Googled-Up "NSM Race-Mixing" and I was appalled by the info listed on over two pages of links. I was unaware of all this until I saw it talked about over on Stormfront. How can this group even exist in the Racial-Movement? 14/88

No one in the ANP should talk about "creepy" people. I attended two of their meetings, one in Mi and one in SC and all I saw and heard was lisps, limp wrists, complaining, unemployed and unable to be employed creeps who live in trailers and who are in lists. I would never take family to an ANP event, there is a reason the ANP has closed door meetings, AKA "in the closet....
