Traditionalist Youth Network Protests At Boxcar Books In Bloomington, IN

left to right- Buhls , Heimbach, King, and Parrott
On Friday, August 23rd, Thomas Buhls (formerly of Knights party), Matthew Heimbach (Lead Towson University's chapter of Youth for Western Civilization from 2011-2012), Matt Parrot (formerly of Hoosier Nation/A3P), and John King (A3P member who ran for Jasper school board President) of the Traditionalist Youth Network (TYN), protested outside of Boxcar Books in Bloomington, IN. TYN is a white supremacist and self identified fascist organization based out of Indiana and founded by Buhls and Heimbach. The groups mission is to provide resources and support to independent groups of high school and college students  about the "traditional" school of thought. TYN were met with rocks, apples, and other projectiles by counter protestors before running off to their cars.

“Racist, Fascist, Anti-Gay Trad Youth Go Away!”

On Friday, August 23rd a representative from the Traditionalist Youth Network at IU–a university chapter of a national white supremacy organization, came to Boxcar Books and announced plans to protest Boxcar on Monday, August 26th because Boxcar is a “Marxist organization”. The group posted images on their Facebook of a black figure being lynched with the word “communism” scrawled across it. They tagged Boxcar Books in this picture and wrote “Just expect us” underneath. They know we are their enemy, and they decided to attack.

Community members were quick to respond to the threat of white supremacist organizing in Bloomington. Over the weekend folks spread word to friends, neighbors, and local businesses, rallying strong support against TYN’s racist, homophobic message.

Boxcar Books opened on Monday at 9am. Several dozen people spent the morning at Boxcar writing letters to prisoners, sharing food, and making signs reading “Bloomington is for queers” and “Immigrants welcome here”. Students visiting Boxcar to pick up textbooks on the first day of classes were alerted that racist organizing is happening at IU and a great number of people called, messaged, or came by Boxcar throughout the day to offer their support. Banners against fascism were dropped on campus and downtown.

Around 2pm, four xenophobic chauvinists arrived at Boxcar chanting, “racist, fascist,anti-gay, Trad Youth will not go away”. Three of the miscreants were recognized by counter-protesters as folks from the local area including Thomas “Bullshit” Buhls, KKK Klansman. They were joined by Matt Heimbach, co-founder of TYN. About 80 counter-protesters challenged the TYN’s racist, homophobic, transphobic, anti-semitic rhetoric. The group was surrounded on all sides, sprayed with a garden hose, duct tape lassoed, condom-bombed with water-filled condomns, and pelted with “the people’s apples” as they ran away after about a 30 minute barraging.
Monday’s counter-protest was a remarkable showing of individuals in solidarity against racism and white supremacy. Though Boxcar Books was targeted for today’s particular action, this was never a singular threat against Boxcar or MWPP but rather an assault on the safety of all.
While retreating, wet and defeated, TYN members announced that they would be back shouting, “expect us again!”
White supremacists, EXPECT RESISTANCE.

Woman And Her Girlfriend Beaten In Homophobic Attack

Taken from the Chicago Tribune:
The two women clutched each other, pinned against a car by as many as 10 men who taunted them for being gay and took turns punching and kicking them on the dark street. “It was punches, kicks, everything being thrown at us,” said one of the women, 23. “We just held each other until somebody said, ‘Here come the police.’ ” 
Police have labeled the attack a hate crime and have charged one man so far. The rest remain at large.

The attack occurred late Saturday night as the women walked down North LeClaire Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

A man they knew from the neighborhood started following them, the woman said. Earlier that night, the couple had passed him as he stood with other men. As has happened before, the woman's masculine dress prompted anti-gay slurs, she said. The woman's girlfriend, 25, told the men to stop, in vain, the woman said.

Now, as the man followed them, he kept shouting slurs and daring the woman to fight, she said. “Tell your b---- to stop looking at me,” the man told the woman's girlfriend, whom he knew from high school.

The woman said she did her best to ignore him but he kept following. Her girlfriend tried to reason with the man, asking him to leave the couple alone, the woman said.

But then a second man came up, cursing both of the women, and the first man took a swing and punched the woman, she said. The couple said they fought back and other men quickly joined in, dragging the women apart.

The couple struggled to get back together, pressed against a car as the beating continued and no one came by to help, the woman said. “I didn’t think we were going to make it out,” she said.

Finally, one of the men said the police were coming. The attackers, laughing, fled in one direction and the women went the other way. Both women had lost their shoes in the scramble, and someone had ripped one of the victim’s shirt off. The men stole their phones and cash.

No officers arrived, and the couple ran back to the woman's building and asked a neighbor for a phone to call for help. Bruised and bleeding from the nose and mouth, the woman said she passed out and woke up as paramedics were working on her in an ambulance.

At the hospital, doctors took a CT scan of her head and X-rays of her ribs and legs, she said. They found swelling but nothing broken. Her girlfriend was not as seriously injured.

Terry Glover, 24, of the 0-100 block of North Parkside Avenue, has been charged with two counts of felony hate crime and two counts of felony robbery. He is being held on $1 million bail. Police said they are still looking for the others.

The woman said she has left the neighborhood.

“It really shouldn’t matter who I like or who I love,” she said. “I should be able to walk the streets wherever I want to go and talk to whoever I want to talk to.”

Dale Duncans Swastika Flag Spurs Anger And Debate In An Elkhart Apartment Complex

Dale Rae Duncan
1806 Visscher Dr, Apt 5
Elkhart, IN 46514-6512

Taken from the Elkhart Truth:

ELKHART — Two small U.S. flags sprout from flower pots outside an apartment.

Hank Stow, a woman who lives at Walnut Hills, used to occasionally fly a large U.S. flag from her balcony, sometimes a Notre Dame flag. Not anymore.

After a neighbor flew a Nazi flag, causing a minor uproar, managers of the apartment complex cracked down on such expressions. No matter the flag’s colors, tenants can’t fly anything from their balconies. Thus Stow’s limited to the two small flags, flying discreetly from the flower pots on the floor of her second-floor balcony.

She betrays no hint of resentment. But ask her about Dale Duncan — the neighbor who unfurled the Nazi banner on April 15, the day of the Boston Marathon bombing, and May 27, Memorial Day — and she exclaims loudly.

“He put that ... flag up and was laughing,” Stow said, seated in a recliner adjacent to the balcony, the exterior of Duncan’s unit visible across the street, the TV set tuned to a medical advice program. “I hollered from right here. I said, ‘Mr. Duncan, you need to take that flag in.’”

Duncan didn’t, of course, and the sight of a large red flag with a black swastika in a white circle
caused an uproar. People in cars stopped, gawked, took pictures, Stow said. Duncan — whose garb consists of Civil War-era attire — sat there on his porch, for at least a time, taking it all in, the flag rippling.

“He had it right over the (balcony) railing and it was just flying everywhere,” Stow said. Duncan, she added, tipped his hat “like a crazy person” when she hollered at him.

Speaking from his small, neat apartment, Duncan decried what he sees as an infringement of his free speech rights — the subsequent crackdown on flags. A Nazi flag and Adolph Hitler picture decorate one wall inside, a map of the Interurban Trolley public transportation system hangs from a closet door. A purple box of raisin bran sits atop the refrigerator.

“A couple of neighbors, they weren’t violent, but they called the office and they complained and now nobody can fly a flag,” Duncan said, clad in gray wool pants and suspenders that mimic the garb Confederate soldiers wore. He had called The Elkhart Truth to report the situation.

Still, he doesn’t report any plans to fly the Nazi flag outside again, much as he’d like to. He hints at concerns about getting the heave-ho from his apartment, one of a couple hundred or so units at the Walnut Trails complex in eastern Elkhart.

“Course my flag doesn’t talk. But it brings out volumes,” Duncan said.

The former farm hand and military veteran who now relies on disability checks to get by said he identifies with a Detroit-based group called the National Socialist Movement, has been drawn to the cause since he was 21.

Should Duncan have to put his flag in the closet? Does he deserve attention? Should he and his message about racial superiority be ignored, kept in the dark, under a rock?

That red, black and white flag — the same as used in Hitler’s Germany — was hard to miss for those living around him who saw it. It’s hard not to talk when it’s right there. And the calls came in. Walnut Trails reps won’t go on the record, but the phone rang, people complained. The callers weren’t happy.

Stow, who hails from Myrtle Beach, S.C., and speaks with a southern lilt, said some didn’t know what to make of the flag. Especially when Duncan brought it out the day of the Boston bombing, which spurred widespread alarm across the nation, speculation about terrorists. He also flew it on Hitler’s birthday, a few days later.

A provocateur?

A kook about to go off the deep end?

A violent racist?

“They was scared. They didn’t know what was going on,” said Stow.

Walnut Trails management reacted. They contacted Duncan, he said, and posted reminders around the complex about rule No. 9 in the standard lease agreement. No flags, period.

Apartment officials can’t be accused of singling anyone out, attacking any particular message. Just keep your balconies clear of any and all banners. It’s about keeping things tidy, preventing showdowns between competing messages.

“Notice effective immediately! Flags and or banners are not permitted to be hung from the windows, balconies or patios as stated in your Lease Agreement,” the reminder reads. It continues: “There are NO EXCEPTIONS.”


So who is this guy?

Duncan is 59 and worked maybe 10 years as a hired help on a Wakarusa-area dairy farm, until about a year and a half ago. He talks of previous stints in Chicago and Virginia and said he previously served in the U.S. Marines and the Indiana National Guard.

He plans to run for mayor of Elkhart in 2015, though he doesn’t seem to be that familiar with the actual chief executive, Dick Moore. Just thinks running the city would be a good job.

While he’s talking, an African-American woman walking past his ground-floor apartment outside — a neighbor — pauses and looks in through the sliding door that connects to his small outdoor patio. They exchange a few pleasantries.

“Well I hope everything’s going all right,” she says before walking off.

Even Stow doesn’t think Duncan is totally a bad sort, necessarily.

“I get along with him,” she said. “When I see him out there I say, ‘Hi Mr. Duncan. How are you doing?’”

Duncan dismisses talk of hate, violence, white supremacy. Philosophically, his thrust is against communism, he maintains.

But there’s a strong dose of anti-Semitism and he casually uses racial and ethnic epithets.

“National socialism is against communism, not Jews. But too many Jews was in the Communist Party,” he said.

He’s a Holocaust denier, thinks different races of people should stick to themselves, shouldn’t mix. Asked if he thinks whites are a superior race, he doesn’t answer directly, but maintains that white Europeans are responsible for more inventions than others. He doesn’t hate anyone, he maintains.

“Whatever you do in the paper, do not refer to me as a white supremacist. Do not refer to me as a hate mongerer,” he said.

Still, there’s the big red Nazi flag, a symbol for genocide, hatred, anti-Semitism, racism. He sometimes even wears a Nazi armband. It’s hard to soft-pedal your views when you use the swastika as shorthand for your belief system. And for many, most probably, it’s no ice breaker for reasoned political discourse.

People sometimes flip him off when he wears his armband.

He was at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs health clinic in Goshen recently when he got in a confrontation with a man offended by the armband swastika. Same thing happened with a woman in a grocery store here.

“She said I was repugnant,” Duncan said. “I called her a communist as she went out the door.”

Fascist And Pro-Rape Musician Boyd Rice Smoked Bombed At Empty Bottle Show

an update 6/27/13 from an email: After calling the empty bottle, it has been confirmed that the smoke bomb did in fact go off. Boyds set was disrupted and folks evacuated. However, even after someone working the show told someone outside that the show was "done for the night" (the room was also smokey and no music was playing), they allegedly decided to continue Boyds set followed by Cold Cave. If this is true, it is not a smart decision for a venue to make after such an incident occurs. We had no reason to assume the show wasn't shut down; the smoke bomb went off, the venue was evacuated, there was no music playing, and someone at the empty bottle told a fan "were done for the night". Regardless of how they responded to the incident, the Empty Bottle hosted a racist and pro rape musician and may have possibly allowed the show to continue after the smoke bomb incident. For that, we smashed 2 of their windows out at 3am this morning. We apologize for the confusion. Cheers to boston antifa!

This article, taken from the idotscrusade blog contains far more evidence to support the argument:

From Boyd Rice's own website an extract of his biography (Copyright Boyd Rice):

"By the 1990s, however, Rice's underground acclaim had been turned on its ear as a result of his public associations with nefarious figures both infamous and obscure. These included friendships and ideological collusion with the likes of cult leader Charles Manson and Church Of Satan founder Anton LaVey, among others. Rice sparked further controversy through public flirtations with "Nazi" aesthetics and fascist ideology, a flaunted disregard for political correctness, and an espousal of antisocial doctrines such as Satanism, Social Darwinism and elitist misanthropy."

Link to video of Boyd Rice being interviewed by Tom Metzger, American neo-Nazi and founder of White Aryan Resistance:

Former Rice partner Lisa Crystal Carver's memoir "Drugs Are Nice" (Snowbooks, London 2006) provides an outline of the time she spent living with and financially supporting Boyd Rice. In her graphic account of their shared lives together Carver recalls how Rice was jailed for assaulting her. Carver finally concludes that Rice, is an alcoholic failure and an 'unemployed fascist'. Before and to an extent even after Carver came along, Rice depended on financial handouts from his mother. In her memoir Carver describes the fascist emblems with which her partner decorated their flat “ A giant Nazi flag is taped to the wall. Right next to the Tomorrowland Disney poster..." (page 146).

Rice’s mistreatment of Carver included physically restraining her and subjecting her to regular beatings and floggings. Carver, despite her growing fear of Rice, stayed with him for the sake of their baby until, in an alcoholic rage, he smashed her head against a nightstand until she became unconscious. This led to Rice’s arrest, trial and imprisonment.

Rice does not conceal his hatred of women. As revealed in this quote from Misanthrope:
‘Back to the rumours. Are you a misogynist? "Yeah." Rice nods fervently for the record. [Laughs.] "Yeah, more and more all the time." What makes you feel that way? "Just a lot of experience with women. I don't think women deserve the same rights as men. I don't think women are on an equal footing with men. I think they're totally different creatures. I think the world operated better when they had less say over how the way things went, had less control." And regarding his piece "R.A.P.E.", which is appallingly pro-rape but allegedly tongue-in-cheek: "I was poking a bit of fun, but it's like there's more than a grain of truth in everything I said in there. I think all the stuff I said was basically true. Which is why it's funny when it's funny. And it's why it upsets women, when it upsets women. Because, you know, they can't really deny most of that stuff. " "Well that's why when women start having these intellectual arguments with me I say at a certain point, "Listen, I refuse to even argue with a woman." They say, "Well, why is that?" and I say, "Because you overreact, you get all emotional, and fly into a tizzy."

Rice was also close to Church of Satan founder LaVey, and rumoured to be a member of its "Council of Nine" and to have initiated others into it. Rice regularly visited convicted murderer Charles Manson (who had ordered his followers to murder actress Sharon Tate amongst others) and organized a campaign to free him. Through Manson, the group came into contact with James Mason, former member of the American Nazi Party and the National Socialist Liberation Front, currently a member of the Universal Order, which views Charles Manson as the next Hitler. Rice was also a member of the neo-Nazi American Front and was very close to its president, Bob Heick.

This photograph was additionally published in the book 'Blood in the Face: The Ku Klux Klan, Aryan Nations, Nazi Skinheads, and the Rise of a New White Culture' by James Ridgeway.

Heick was influenced by the racist National Front in 1980’s Britain. Indeed Heick’s group was unique in that it advocated a "third positionist" ideology combining both racism and a right-wing ‘cultural’ ‘war of position’. The American Front led a nationwide rally December 9, 2006, on behalf of incarcerated members of The Order, a 1980s white supremacist terrorist group. While the largest gathering occurred in southern California, several banners describing Order members as "prisoners of war" were found around Orlando and Maitland.

Heick was present at an event, "8/8/88," that Rice explained "was a recapitulation of a destruction ritual that Anton LaVey performed on August 8, 1969." It was shown on Geraldo Rivera's "Satanism" special. Perhaps not coincidentally, the eighth letter of the alphabet is H, and 88 is considered by some to signify the words "Heil Hitler."

Walt Kaldenberg is another associate of Rice still actively engaged in promoting race hatred. Going public on the online pages of in the course of reviewing Kevin Coogan's book 'Dreamer of the Day: Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International'. Kaldenberg writes, 'about 70 or more of the people in the book I know or have known. Every one from the little old lady who got Rockwell into National Socialism and her Keith Stimely who about force fed me Yockey, and Boyd Rice who played a part in my wedding. It's like reading a high reunion letter'.

Kaldenberg is also the author of the notorious article, 'Death Of The White Race', in which he claims that ' I don't know, nor do I care, how many Jews died in the Holocaust. If Hitler did kill six million Jews, I won't lose any sleep over it. The Jews have been kicked out of nearly every civilized nation on Earth. If the Jews weren't so evil, people wouldn't kill them. If any one is to blame for anti-Semitism, Hitler, and the Holocaust, it's the Jews.'

Rice was interviewed in 1986 by the white supremacist leader, Tom Metzger of White Aryan Resistance. In it he was asked whether industrial music is the "beginning of an Aryan underclass movement." He is quoted as saying, "I think so. It's engendering a new will among people. That's what I'm interested in." See video clip

Also mentioned by Rice within the context of this interview is the band Above The Ruins, featuring one Tony Wakeford now of London-based Sol Invictus. A London concert Wakeford’s band gave in 2006 was according to a blog posting attended by Troy Southgate (another former National Front activist and Neo-Folk musician and more recently founder of the English Nationalist Movement and the National Revolutionary Faction; Southgate describes the latter as "a hardline revolutionary organisation based on an underground cell-structure similar to that used by both the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) and the IRA", operating on the principle of leaderless resistance. For information about the Wakeford concert attended by Southgate see

Racist Frat Prank At U Of C In Chicago

Taken from the Huffington post:
A fraternity at the University of Chicago is under fire after pulling a stunt on an African-American mail carrier that has been decried as both racist and homophobic.

U.S. Postal carrier Iran Becton told the Sun-Times members of the university's Phi Delta Theta fraternity had him "needlessly" drag more than six dozen postal supply boxes to the chapter's house in the 5600 block of South University Avenue.

“About a week after Memorial Day, I had an order to bring 79 of the boxes," Becton said. "I came to the address and explained to the frat member that I would have a lot more supplies. I went back to the truck for the boxes about six or seven times. After the last trip, one of the frat guys came out and said it was a practical joke. Another guy said that I should read the name backwards and I’ll get the joke.”

According to CBS Chicago, the name on the order was “Reggin Toggaf;” read backwards, the first name is a racial slur and the last name is a slur for gay men.

Becton said he felt insulted "humiliated" and wants an apology; the Chicago Division Postal Inspection Services is reportedly investigating and mail delivery to the Phi Delt house has been suspended until they issue a written apology to Becton. The Sun-Times notes in addition to the impact on Becton, the prank involved "the abuse and possibly the destruction of postal property," which is a criminal offense.

Ironically, the incident came just days after the university hosted a diversity initiative for which the school's paper, The Chicago Maroon, reported "anti-racism activist and writer Tim Wise spoke about the ignorance of dominant social groups as a persistent problem in America and the University of Chicago community."

The Phi Delt prank wasn't the first time a U of C fraternity has been accused of being insensitive and offensive. In 2012, the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity drew criticism for its depiction of Latinos and a planned "Conquistadors and Aztec Hoes" theme party, according to United Press International.

Fraternities and sororities around the country seem to earn another racially or culturally insensitive embarrassment each semester; in February, Duke University's Kappa Sigma fraternity drew fire for an "Asia Prime" party .

Later the same month, Washington University in St. Louis' Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter was suspended for an incident involving pledges who allegedly sang racial slurs to black students.

State Leader Chris Rothe Resigns. Illinois NSM's Latest Incarnation Fractures As Soon As They Began

After a few antifascist attacks against Chris Rothe, including a flier drop at his place of business and his neighborhood,  he has resigned from the National Socialist Movement, giving up his chosen role as state leader. A major factor that led him to make this decision was not only the attacks but the lack of support from the NSM after the attacks occurred. Though this does not necessarily mean Chris isn't a nazi, he is no longer affiliated with that  particular organization. Since they have lost supporter William Kennedy, as well as members Suzan Lenner, Billy Woods, and the hated and proud skins, for the same reason, the NSM is left without a functional chapter in Illinois.

Statement from Chris Rothe:
 To Whom it may concern, I Chris Rothe wish to resign and cease all activity/contact with the NSM i wish to not be affiliated with not even support the NSM effective immediately.
I want to detour anyone who has interest in the nsm, i should start by letting you know
my car was vandalized my windows got busted out and my tires slashed. I was upset when this happened and when i told the members of the nsm about this noone offered any help to me, not a fucking dime. Noone offered to take my back, noone offered to help me pay my deductable. Its funny they want you to support them but who supports you when something happens. I can assure you that if your interested in the nsm that nothing good will come of it, what would happen if i would have been hospitalized at a rally or something i would have been all alone paying bills. At the end of the day its all a bunch of lies that lead to violence and quite simply your on your own noone gives a fuck.
Statement from the Hated and Proud skins:
We regret to announce that we are no longer working with the NSM. We hold no hard feelings towards the NSM overall, but believe that their recruiting method is extremely flawed and unsafe. We would rather work amongst ourselves and recruit new individuals based on trust rather than simply to inflate our ranks.
There were rumors going around that the NSM hoped to host the conference in Chicago next year, but with their Illinois unit in shambles, we seriously doubt that. It appears that Missouri or Texas is the likely location for the NSM 2014 conference.
