Cold Shot Special

Posted by nicolen on October 31, 2009

HoltenThis Sunday, November 1, 2009, Cold Shot will host an interview between Daryle Lamont Jenkins of One People’s Project and white supremacist Steve Holten at 7:00 PM Eastern Time.

Holten was once a major player in Richard Butler’s Aryan Nations. In 2004, he was arrested for making terrorist threats against employees of the Reno Gazette-Journal and the San Francisco Chronicle and several state government officials. In his threats, Holten stated, “Our violent terrorist actions will be a shock to the citizens of Reno and San Francisco. It will be gruesome, and something that has never been seen ever.” He added, “We of Aryan Nations are angry, and we hate and we kill.”

In court it was disclosed that Holten was HIV Positive, immediately placing him in a negative light with others in the white supremacsit movement and causing a severance of his relationship with other Aryan Nations members.

Shortly after his release from prison it was reported that Holten was again under arrest for soliciting sex acts from an undercover officer in a park where homosexuals meet. It was asserted that Holten had been advertising via fliers that particularly sought out Hispanic men for sexual encounters. According to reports, Holten was dressed in full Nazi regalia and sported many Nazi tattoos at the time of his arrest.

Today, Holten claims that he was set-up and that he is still being targeted by law-enforcement. As the interview progresses, Holten speaks of these things, his previous relationship with Pastor Richard Butler, as well as his continued devotion to the movement. He and Jenkins also discuss the right-wing talking heads and the role that they play. Holten suggests that another Oklahoma City type event is imminent.

Join Daryle Lamont Jenkins and Nikki Nichols after the interview for an on-air discussion.

ONCE A NAZI-NOT ALWAYS A NAZI

Former neo-Nazis become Holocaust commemorators
By ARON HELLER – 2 days ago

JERUSALEM (AP) — They used to paint swastika graffiti, get into street fights with immigrants and distribute anti-Semitic propaganda.

But after studying the cases of a few of the 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis during World War II, some former Swedish neo-Nazi teenagers came to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial with new attitudes.

The teens, some of whom were active members of neo-Nazi groups, visited the memorial Monday to present the findings of their research into the stories of 16 Holocaust victims from their hometown of Karlstad, and add pages of testimony for the previously unknown dead.

The project is the initiative of Swedish Holocaust educator Christer Mattsson. The concept is to take troubled youths off the street, confront their prejudices and ignorance and slowly convert them into Holocaust educators themselves.

“The first time I took a neo-Nazi to Auschwitz, I didn’t know what to expect,” he said. “But after seeing it, after seeing where Jews used to live, he said: ‘I can no longer deny it happened, or salute what happened.'”

The journey has been an arduous one. Of the 100 teenagers in his program, Mattsson said about five to eight are “hard-core neo-Nazis” — some completely reformed, others not. Those, some sporting Nazi tattoos, did not make the trip to Israel, either for fear of offending survivors or to remain anonymous for their own safety.

The only former active member who arrived, 17-year-old Joar, refused to be photographed and would be identified only by his first name for fear of retribution from his former friends.

The shy, blond Joar hid behind a baseball cap and a large pair of sunglasses. He would only say that he used to have “different opinions.”

“I didn’t know so much. I’ve learned a lot about the Holocaust,” he said, through a translator. “I have a different perspective on life now.”

Sweden remained neutral during World War II. It had a very small Jewish population and closed its gates to refugees. That policy began to change as the horrors of the Holocaust became apparent and Sweden began to lean toward the allies.

In 1944, Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg began handing out papers to save thousands of Hungarian Jews from the Nazi death camps. After the war, some 27,000 survivors arrived in Sweden.

In Karlstad, 16 Jewish women died shortly afterward, most from illness, and were buried in a Jewish cemetery. Mattsson took his students there to ask them if they still believed the Holocaust to be a myth. They, in turn, decided to investigate the women’s stories. The result is a 100-page book that details their stories.

On Monday, they presented their findings to Israel’s official Holocaust museum and memorial.

Yad Vashem spokeswoman Estee Yaari said it probably marked the first time it had ever dealt directly with neo-Nazis.

The teenagers toured the museum and met with Mirjam Akavia, a Holocaust survivor who fled to Sweden after the war.

She vividly described her childhood and how she was yanked out of school and sent to the camps, where only she and sister emerged while the rest of her family perished.

“When I was 12, it was the end of my beautiful childhood. It was the end of everything,” she said.

The Swedish teenagers were not much older when they encountered their own local brand of anti-Semitism.

“The headmaster of my former school, who is here today, was beaten up by people I knew three years ago,” said 17-year-old Jennifer Lindstrom, who said she joined Mattsson’s group so she could have the tools to battle her classmates’ rhetoric and actions.

“Maybe because I have been studying about the Holocaust and Nazism, maybe because I have been to Auschwitz and the empty shtetels (Jewish villages) in Poland or maybe because I got sick and fed up with racism and neo-Nazis — I could not remain silent.”

Lindstrom’s principal was assaulted because he tried to keep the neo-Nazi students out of his school. The two other teenagers in the group were Johanna Karlsson and Deken Izat, a Kurdish immigrant to Sweden who used to belong to a rival gang that battled with Joar’s.

Lindstrom said that finding out what happened in her own backyard proved to be the best way for her and her new friends to counter racism.

“It is slightly unreal to be here today and handing over material that we have worked with for so long, knowing that it will be here at Yad Vashem for always,” Lindstrom said.

COLD SHOT ON MONDAY – 4-21-08 @ 8:00 EASTERN

Posted by nicolen on April 20, 2008

EYE ON HATE RADIO NETWORK PRESENTS…
COLD SHOT
With Nikki Nichols

April 21, 2008 Topics:


Polygamy,prejudice, and pedophilia – a follow-up report on the latest out of El Dorado, Texas.

“In the good old times, regulation of minimal age for consensual sex was based on biological reality. As soon as a girl had her first cycle (12-13 years old), parents sought a man to marry them with. Having a child between 16-20 years is what a woman’s body is designed for. This period forms the peak of fertility and, of course, the peak age of sexual drive and appeal.” (from the warped mind of a racist)


Which one is the pig? Why Bob Dumas, a Raliegh, N.C. radio host has caught our attention – along with a special interview with Beth Jacobs, the Founding Director of Brown Babies, Inc. who will shed some light on the racism and bigotry at G105 Radio that needs to be stopped NOW.

“Brown Babies is a nonprofit organization that advocates for the rights of children living in poor communities. While a large percentage of our membership are families of color, Brown Babies speaks out for the right for all children to have opportunities to succeed in America. The continuation of this blatantly bigoted radio show is harmful to all children and should be banned from our public airwaves. Just because hate can be well disguised as humor does not make it any less real or dangerous.” (Beth Jacobs).

There are close to 900 hate groups operating within the United States today. While memership numbers in these groups are small, that doesn’t tell the real story. Forces other than organized white supremacist organizations are reeling in and exploiting many young people within our nation.

The dangers these people pose to our youth are many and far-reaching. Nikki Nichols discusses youth within the “movement” and how to protect your children.

A TANGLED WEB OF MURDER

Tangled web of murder
An investigation of two brutal killings in Hingham in 2005 exposes a seamy underworld of crime, violence, and hatred stretching across the South Shore

Globe Staff / January 31, 2008
The scene was undeniably gruesome. Two homeless men had been bludgeoned to death in the old military bunker they shared near Bare Cove Park in Hingham. Blood was everywhere. One victim’s hand had been cut off. The crime, in the spring of 2005, was the worst the comfortable seaside town had seen in recent memory.

more stories like thisAs police have pursued the killers, they have encountered an equally violent local underworld reaching further across the South Shore. It is a world in which players go by nicknames such as “Twisted” and “Mental” and “Killa,” and the stories they have since told police have only helped confuse the prosecution’s case.

So sketchy is the list of witnesses, and so tangled the versions of events, that the confusion could undermine the trial against the two men eventually charged with the crime: James Winquist, 24, of Bridgewater and Eric Snow, 26, of Weymouth. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Defense attorneys have submitted a series of court requests, and one plans to seek dismissal of the case. While court motions are routine in criminal matters, the lawyers say in this case they’re based on questionable evidence and testimony gleaned from witnesses just as shady as the suspects.

“Every person who said they heard anything is being reported by the government as being a liar by everyone else,” said Gerald T. FitzGerald, a New Bedford lawyer who represents Snow.

“The bottom line here is, what is the quality of evidence here?”

Prosecutors would not discuss the case or the witnesses, saying it’s up to the courts to decide what happened.

“The appropriate place to deal with this is before a court of law,” said Bridget Norton Middleton, a spokeswoman for the Plymouth County district attorney’s office. “And that’s where we’ll do it.”

Nevertheless, the list of court requests and testimony is set to expose the backstory of the murders, and what happened that night in the dark woods just off a walking trail at the Back River in Hingham.

Court records show that prosecutors have been faced with contradictory testimony. A witness pointed to one man before blaming another. A man who witnesses said bragged about committing the murders in an apparent celebration of the killings is now himself a star witness.

These witnesses, meanwhile, have sought immunity and lenient sentences for a variety of crimes, some of which are just as shocking as the murders.

Violence and mental illness are very much part of the network of alleged killers, witnesses, and affiliates in the case, court records show. Many in the group are white supremacists. Some brag of earning their “bones,” a reference to taking a life, according to court documents.

As one police official put it, “It’s quite a crew.”

Chilling chronology

The bodies of William Chrapan, 44, and David Lyon, 46, were found May 9, 2005, in the military bunker closest to the Bare Cove Park trail. Medical examiners said they were killed sometime within 10 days before their bodies were discovered.

Two months after the killings, in July, a witness led police to a hand that was buried near power lines in Bridgewater, near Eric Snow’s home. Tests later showed it belonged to Chrapan.

There, the investigation began. It led detectives from Hingham to Bridgewater to Weymouth, and eventually to Snow, Winquist, and their friends – a group of men who have served time, espouse white supremacy, and call themselves the Brothers of Blood.

Winquist and Snow met in 2003 in jail, where both were introduced to a loose network of local white supremacists. When he returned home, Winquist hung a Nazi flag in the basement of his home in Hingham. Snow has tattoos that promote the white supremacist movement.

Whether the suspects’ white supremacy views are relevant in this case is a matter of dispute. The victims were white, and friends of the suspects and a witness in the case, according to court records, describe Brothers of Blood as “a joke crew” that may advocate white supremacy but did not follow the discipline of established gangs such as the Aryan Brotherhood. Snow had a black friend, for instance.

A defense attorney says prosecutors’ mention of white supremacy is a ploy. But police say the white supremacy network the two young men discovered while behind bars eventually drew them to a dark world that celebrates murder.

Winquist, known as “Twisted,” had a history of breaking into cars, homes, and boats on the Hingham and Weymouth waterfront. In 2003, the year he met Snow in jail, Winquist was charged with stabbing a man in Harvard Square. He was later acquitted in that attack.

Snow, who has “Killa” tattooed on his neck, has been charged with such crimes as assault with a hand gun, and assault and battery. In one case, after the murders, authorities say he took part in a home invasion, and was armed. He served two years in jail for home invasion and armed assault with a gun.

William Sylvestre, a 28-year-old who dated Snow’s sister, served two years in jail for his role in that home invasion. According to court records, Sylvestre had earlier told police that Snow had told him that he and Winquist killed people.

Mike Alfano, 27, known as “Mental,” spent time in jail for nearly killing a man with a sledgehammer in 2003. He then cooperated with the FBI as an informant in hopes of getting a favorable sentence, according to records.

Alfano, described in court records as the leader of the Brotherhood of Blood, is a key witness against Snow and Winquist, according to court records. He sought leniency from prosecutors for his testimony in this case, and a detective said “we would assist him in any way we could if the information he provided to us was beneficial,” according to a defense attorney in the case, citing police reports.

Alfano originally told police that another member of their network, David Courage, claimed he committed the killings, according to court records. Now, Alfano says Snow and Winquist did it.

Courage, 18, of Hingham, bragged about the killings, according to court records that cite witness testimony. He was initially at the center of the murder investigation, according to investigators. He later testified against Snow and Winquist with the promise that he would not be prosecuted for what he said, and he is now a key witness, court records show.

Courage could not be reached for comment, but a prosecutor said in court that he denies testimony by defense witnesses that he waved the severed hand around at a party.

Ryan Bois, 20, of Weymouth, was arrested in August on charges he kidnapped, raped, and murdered his 6-year-old cousin. Just before he was arrested, Bois called Winquist eight times on his cellphone, according to prosecutors. Prosecutors never explained why the calls were made, and friends of Winquist said he did not answer the calls.

But within days after Bois was arrested, police started knocking on Winquist’s door, asking about the calls. A month later, Winquist and Snow were arrested and charged with the Hingham murders.

They were indicted in October. Bois, in a mental institution pending his murder case, is now a witness against Snow and Winquist.

Court records describe testimony from witnesses who name Winquist and Snow as the killers. One witness told police she was passed out on a couch in the basement of Winquist’s home and let the two men borrow her car. An hour later, Snow and Winquist came back laughing, saying they “beat up some bums up the street.” The witness said Winquist and Snow took off their clothes and put them and bats into a black trash bag.

The same witness said she drove Snow to his home in Bridgewater that night and watched him bury a bag near the power lines behind his home. The witness told police she used her car to light the scene for Snow.

Police also describe a visit they made to that same scene in July 2005, based on a tip by a confidential witness. There, they found Chrapan’s hand, apparently slit at the wrist. Another witness describes a party at Winquist’s home, located a half-mile from the military bunker where the murders occurred. The witness told police that Snow and Winquist had kept the hand in a plastic bag and cooler, and passed it around while they ridiculed the victims.

The two imitated the homeless men’s pleas for mercy, and the gurgling sound they made as they died, witness later told police.

It was after that, according to court records, that Snow and Winquist told their friends they “made their bones.”

Epilogue

All that remains at the murder site now is a mound of dirt, with a cross that somebody placed on top. Hingham officials demolished the military bunker after the bodies were discovered.

Two and a half years later, the court case is inching forward. Winquist is due in court next week. Both men are being held without bail – Snow in Plymouth County and Winquist in Norfolk County.

Winquist’s lawyer has requested more information from prosecutors about the investigation. Snow’s lawyer plans a motion to have the case dismissed, and has sought the criminal histories of witnesses in the case, seeking information that “might be used to impeach a witness.”

ROANOKE NAZI CLAIMS RON PAUL MEETS WITH THE “STORMFRONT SET”

Posted by nicolen on December 19, 2007

updated2.jpgOh…I am just loving this! Welcome to the world of Bill White! He has made me laugh in the past, but not quite as much as he has today!!!!

With his recent, so-called “outing” of Presidential hopeful, Ron Paul, Bill White has demonstrated precisely and inarguably why we claim that he is a “fraudulent white-nationalist.” As I said on Cold Shot, Bill White is a manipulator and a conniver. He is a charlatan and his only reason for breathing is to get attention.

Bill has been lacking in attention lately – has entered one of his manic phases – and has pushed all the right buttons. If there is a modicum of truth in what he said about Ron Paul – we thank him for helping us prove our point. If there is no truth in what he wrote, we thank him for putting himself in a position where he might have to put up or shut up. Either way, we thank him for making our point about himslef.

He made the holidays merry!

9f9c.jpgFirst, let me preface this by saying that Bill White is not always truthful or accurate. I am not posting this article as “truth” or “fact.” However, if true, we really need validation of this – and if false, then those in Ron Paul’s camp need to engage in some damage control here.

(CAUTION: THE LINK IS TO A HATE SITE – BE FORE-WARNED.

http://vnnforum.com/showthread.php?t=63682

 Comrades:

I have kept quiet about the Ron Paul campaign for a
while, because I didn’t see any need to say anything
that would cause any trouble. However, reading the
latest release from his campaign spokesman, I am
compelled to tell the truth about Ron Paul’s extensive
involvement in white nationalism.

Both Congressman Paul and his aides regularly meet
with members of the Stormfront set, American
Renaissance, the Institute for Historic Review, and
others at the Tara Thai restaurant in Arlington,
Virginia, usually on Wednesdays. This is part of a
dinner that was originally organized by Pat Buchanan,
Sam Francis and Joe Sobran, and has since been mostly
taken over by the Council of Conservative Citizens.

I have attended these dinners, seen Paul and his aides
there, and been invited to his offices in Washington
to discuss policy.

For his spokesman to call white racialism a “small
ideology” and claim white activists are “wasting their
money” trying to influence Paul is ridiculous. Paul
is a white nationalist of the Stormfront type who has
always kept his racial views and his views about world
Judaism quiet because of his political position.

I don’t know that it is necessarily good for Paul to
“expose” this. However, he really is someone with
extensive ties to white nationalism and for him to
deny that in the belief he will be more respectable by
denying it is outrageous — and I hate seeing people
in the press who denounce racialism merely because
they think it is not fashionable.

Bill White, Commander
American National Socialist Workers Party

CAT FIGHT

Posted by nicolen on November 28, 2007

CAT FIGHT

By Nicole Nichols

Some people love cat fights…they really get amused. Usually, I find them ridiculous and demeaning to those involved, as well as those cheering them on. However, the feline frenzy that is taking place on VNN between April Gaede, ersatz mother of singing duo Prussian Blue, and Elisha Strom, estranged wife of the sexually twisted Kevin Alfred Strom is just too outlandish to walk away from.

The latest round started when Elisha Strom announced that her estranged husband was probably going to enter into a plea agreement with the prosecution and admit to being in possession of child pornography.

Now, there are those in the VNN group, as well as Stormfront, who still refuse to accept Strom’s guilt. In spite of all the evidence and the admissions made by Strom himself, they believe that it was his wife, Elisha, who set Kevin up. There are also those who believe there is nothing wrong with what Kevin Alfred Strom did. Consequently, Elisha knew that she would generate a lot of discussion and a lot of unfriendly conversation.

Among those long time supporters of Kevin has been April Gaede who was quick to point a finger at Elisha on Stormfront once the news of Strom’s arrest hit. Elisha was equally quick to fight back against claims that she had set her husband up for this fall. Questions about all of this have surrounded the case for almost a year now and accusations have been flying for just as long.

The recent event was brought about by Elisha Strom’s statement on VNN claiming…

“Although she admits to being aware of Kevin’s “problem” more than a year and a half before he was arrested, April Gaede continued to send Kevin photographs of her daughters almost up to the day of his arrest. Then April comes on here and blames me for causing pictures of her kids to be used by Kevin in the nasty way they were. I suppose April also blames me for her sending dozens of photographs of her daughters to David Lane, even after he admitted on television that he sat in his prison cell looking at those pictures and thinking of her daughters in a more “grown up” way.”

It should be noted that Kevin was found masturbating to pictures of the Prussian Blue twins, Lynx and Lamb. He had pasted their heads onto the bodies of much younger children. The reference to David Lane, now deceased, refers to a comment made by Lane in a recent documentary about April and her girls. Lane, sentenced to 190 years for his part in robberies and murders, called the girls, who were 14 at the time, his “sweetheart fantasies.”

Also, referring to that very same film, Elisha had the following to say…

“April called her daughter a “cunt” on national television. She announced to the world on live radio that her daughter was “PMSing.” Rather than speaking out against the pedophile who used her kids and her, she goes after, with the most vicious slander, the woman who tried to protect them from him. You might believe those are the actions of a good mother, but I definitely do not.”

The actual quote became a point of semantics on the forum where it was argued that April did not call her daughter such a name. What was actually said by April was, “And then when they leave…you can act as much of a cunt as you want, for the rest of the night…ok.”

The comment itself drew a collective gasp from many while watching the film. However, it demonstrated precisely what life for the Gaede twins, as well as their 3 year old sister, is really like.

In response, Gaede claimed:

“As for saying the word “cunt”. My daughters were acting like spoiled brats that day to the max. They were mad because they wanted to hang out with their friends and couldnt because of the filming, which they had agreed to do and so they decided to act like brats. I said what I said because at that age, telling them they were acting like brats doesnt mean much. So what, I dont see that it is that big a deal. I dont use that word often but I was pushed to the breaking point. In retrospect, I should not have said it, but what the hell, life goes on.”

I guess in the world of skinheads, racists, and hate-mongers, using such language when disciplining children is just normal. I guess that age 14 is considered “grown” to a woman living such an existence.

Will Williams, who has been a long time detractor of Gaede and has published volumes about her sexual escapades, chimed in to further shred any myths about the fine parent that Gaede is. Williams made the following statement…

“Lane was a responsible, moral man of the top rank.

“I understand and accept Mr. Lane’s off the cuff comment in that hit piece. He probably didn’t realize that his comments on a speakerphone were going to be memorialized in a BBC docudrama. The poor fellow had been in Super Max lockdown for twenty years. He had had pictures of the twins all over the wall of his cell for at least five years, maybe six, going back to their pre-teen years, and had them reading poertry and singing to him over the phone most of that time. Lane was as manipiulated as the twins have been.”

It is important to note that Gaede had chosen Lane as her children’s “Godfather” and that she encouraged the girls to write and to stay in close contact with the prisoner.

The comment made by Williams did not go unanswered by April. She retaliated with:

“Will, you act as if you visited David’s cell yourself. I dont even have any idea about what was on his walls. Or, that you were privy to most of the phone calls from him, when in truth you were present on ONE occasion….The truth is that they confiscated David’s things often and he would ask for new pics of the girls, I sent pics of Dresden too and of the kids Bday parties with their cousins, our cattle branding etc. Just pics to show him that what he did was not in vain and to give him a glimpse into a healthy family life that he could not have. David was my friend, in all the years that I knew him via phone and email he never once said anything inappropriate to the girls. I believe that the comment that he made on the documentary was not made in a perverted way like Elisha and the documentary would have you believe. He was just acknowledging that pretty white women are attractive to WN men. The girls are 15, they are not babies, they are young women.

To claim that I manipulated David is so mean. I was one of the people who didnt forget him. How much did you write to him?”

Well, that was probably not the smartest thing that April has ever asked. Will Williams has been a long time activist within the movement and is well respected within the rank and file. His response?

“Gaede says it’s mean of me to say she manipulated David Lane, using her daughters. The truth can be mean. I’m not saying having the girls in his life didn’t bring David some measure of needed attachment to females on the outside. Fantasies were all the man had where he was.

“She asked me how many times I wrote to David Lane like that’s relevant. I was corresponding with Lane back in 1988 and for years after, long before she first wrote to him and started sending him pictures of her girls in 2001. I edited his 88 Precepts and was the first to publish them, 13 years before the Shewolf of the NA wiled her way into his lonely life, and was reasonably close to Katja Lane and especially with Ron McVan, David’s right arm, all through the 1990’s as they developed Wotanism together. I published a letter by David Lane in 1989 in which he called Xianity an “escape hatch,” and admitted that both he and Bob Mathews took a dim view of Xianity and had both read Klassen’s White Man’s Bible. So much for claims that they were Xians.”

While all of this may seem to be just more of the drama that takes place in cyberspace, it is important to view this squabble in context. Given the severity of the charges that have been leveled and acquiesced to in regard to Strom, the children with whom he had contact should be of the utmost concern.

April Gaede will probably never win “Mother of the Year.” However, there is even more to be considered when looking into her parenting practices. Rarely am I ever in agreement with a racist, but Will Williams raised a legitimate concern when he offered his opinion on the manipulation of the children. Also, are April’s wishes for stardom and success such that she not only manipulated but exploited these two beautiful girls? This question has been raised more than once by many people.

Kevin Alfred Strom was a huge promoter of the twins and April. The question remains, why did April continue sending Strom pictures of her girls? Apparently, many in the movement knew of Kevin’s penchant for young girls. It would be patently ingenuous of April Gaede to claim that she had no clue.

Any sane person would question April’s motivation behind her relationship with David Lane. Assigning Lane “Godfather” status begs the question of her own sanity, not to mention that she has also dubbed Matt Hale as their “Spiritual Leader.” One can only conclude that April understood the esteem that was bestowed upon Lane and hoped that by using his name the Prussian Blue duo would be revered and legitimized among those in the movement.

Booking her children into white power events, insisting that they perform for drunken and often obscene skinheads and the like cannot be justified as anything other than manipulation and exploitation. And if Kevin Alfred Strom’s actions with their pictures did not curdle her stomach the very thought of a murderous felon having sexual fantasies about them should have.

Her claims of providing Lane with a “glimpse into a healthy family life,” would almost be laughable if the circumstances were not so wretchedly abominable.

Elisha Strom isn’t without culpability in all of this, however. In 2003, Elisha was featured as one the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “40 To Watch.” Countering what many called Kevin Alfred Strom’s “effeminate ways,” Elisha presented herself as more of a feminist often drawing fire from the rank and file racists for her strong views on women.

Entering into the fray that generally characterizes the racist right is not an easy thing for women. In most instances, women are viewed as weak and too emotional to handle things that should be left to the men – things like voting or participating in the political arena. Elisha didn’t fit the mold.

As much as Kevin’s website was strange, so was Elisha’s which often featured “hot men of movement.” As early as 2002, a confidential source eluded to the belief that Kevin’s feminism was rivaled by Elisha’s masculinity and claimed that both were involved in “weird sexual exploits.”

Kevin’s affinity for young girls was a well known fact among the racists yet his writings and broadcasts were highly touted by them. According to his first wife, Kirsten Kaiser, Strom was infatuated with “nymphs” and had them all over their home.

In a very revealing interview with Kirsten, the Southern Poverty Law Center reported that she had been interviewed and questioned by the FBI in November of 2006, and asked for names of underaged girls who might have lived on the National Alliance compound during the same time as Kevin.

Kirsten also reported a telephone conversation with Elisha:

“She said that for the first two years of her marriage she tried to figure out what was wrong with her [because Strom showed so little interest], and for the second two years she tried to figure out what was wrong with him,” Kaiser said. “The fact is, he wasn’t interested in me, either, once we got married.”

Now, considering all of these things, one must also consider that Kevin Alfred Strom and Elisha shared the same living space and the same bed. It seems almost inconceivable to me that any woman could live for so many years with a man who lusted after children and not realize that something was very wrong with that picture.

It seems to me that Elisha knew about her husband and, perhaps, ignored or denied or even abetted him in his quest for pictures of very young girls. She relates a story that while attending a function of David Duke, Kevin wanted to take pictures of Prussian Blue in their bikini’s at the pool. According to Elisha, she intervened and asked another person to get those shots.

This whole affair is a sordid mess and, I suspect, involves many others. There are those who knew and kept quiet. There are those who tried to cover or sweep it under the rug. And, there are those who obliged Mr. Strom by sending photo’s, by interfering with authorities, or by simply condoning his actions.

April Gaede as well as Elisha Strom must both share in this despicable happening. No woman would force her daughters into an arena so rife with degenerates nor allow them to associate with men with such disreputable pasts. Likewise, no woman would not know that there was something rotten going on with her husband, and once known, would have allowed it to continue.

Elisha will say that she tried to get him to seek help. She will say that she filmed him and recorded him for “proof.” The “proof” was always there and the bottom line is, she didn’t report him. He was brought to the attention of law enforcement by the parents of a young child that he was stalking.

In fairness, it is possible that Kevin was abusive and that Elisha feared him…but when it comes to children, no matter how much she feared, she should have done what was necessary long ago to protect them.

April Gaede is another story. Her manipulation and exploitation of the twins is unconscionable and may have adverse affects on both for years to come. While cat fights are not generally fruitful, I can only hope that, in this case, that April will see what she has done and ask forgiveness from her children.

Kevin Alfred Strom was scheduled for trial in January on the porn charges. If Elisha Strom is correct and he pleads guilty, I can only speculate that others will be named as part of that plea bargain. He will not go gentle into the night – bet on it.
