Vol. 3, Numbers 82 (#340)


                             AN APOLOGY TO READERS  We're sorry about the delay in the newsletter. For some months we had outgrown the capacity of our old system and had to routinely clear space on the disk drive. A bit over a week ago friends helped us get a new system so we stopped worrying about space when it was being delivered.  This was a big mistake for it caused the filters on our e-mail program to crash. We get over 1,000 messages a day from various discussion and news list and filter them into about 100 categories. The filter crash overwhelmed our ability to deal with incoming mail.  Now, however, we have the new system up and partially running. There should still be some delay and we install new filters and catch up on past correspondence. This means that the next few newsletter should be brief. But we have a nice anti-fascist victory to report below, thanks to activism by the multi-racial movement.  --------------------------------------------------------------------------                 EVENTS OF INTEREST TO ANTI-FASCIST ACTIVISTS                             KKK Rally: 16 Oct 99                              Clanton, Alabama  The Alabama White Knights will be having a rally in Clanton, Alabama on Saturday, October 16, 1999.

LOSES:           THE MULTI-RACIAL MOVEMENT DEFEATS FASCISTS ON INTERNET!  The fascist "Western Imperative Network" (WIN) urges that multi-racial couples targeted for violence. One WIN leader, known as "ipm" wrote of this on the group's mailing list. Supporters of TINAF picked up on this and forwarded it to the journal. We reprinted it[1] and other readers passed it on to their readers.[2]  "Black and White Couple" thought that the fascist list violated the terms of service of the ONElist provider and complained. The list server investigated and pulled the list. Even more important, the WIN itself now has killed its open subscription policy.  All told, this process indicated the informal way that anti-fascist activism functions on the net. The destruction of the WIN propaganda list was not a massive victory but it was a victory nonetheless. It was also a victory established without violence.  There are three other points of interest.  The first is that the fascists aren't doing too well at the infiltration game. Matt Hale of the widely discredited World Church of the Creator wrote to his list claiming he infiltrated Anti-Racist Action. It turned out that Hale, not ARA, was penetrated.  The second provides additional confirmation of our notion that fascists have a somewhat special psychology; that victories inspire them more than other political activists but that defeats are equally magnified. WIN could simply have gone to another list server; instead they cancelled the basic recruiting nature for their list.  The third addresses critics who wonder what all the fuss is about. In one sense, the fascists could indeed have turned to another server meaning that we've accomplished little. But WIN has changed the nature of their list. Formally it was more open, allowing  the less-committed or the curious to easily subscribe and thus be influenced by the group's propaganda. Now the list is closed to all but those with an already documented rightwing history. This new need for WIN-list security significantly reduces the people they can reach and the effectiveness of their writings.  On a lighter note, it is interesting to see fascist paranoia reverberate against them. One post from the WIN list gets publicized and the group's leader worries about "rogues, infiltrators, and mentally unbalanced subscribers." One supposes he knows who reads WIN material better than we do!  But remember: just because the fascists are paranoid doesn't mean that we're not out to get them.

Membership is presently restricted to an modified "invation [sic] only" basis. Unless you have been specifically invited to join the list by a present member of the list, you may also be considered if you can provide a verifiable portfolio of pro-White usenet postings or have other qualifications demonstrating your dedication to the White racialist struggle.  I hope this doesn't turn off serious racialists, because that's obviously not the purpose.    --  Racial regards,       Members of WIN       <http://www.usaor.net/users/ipm/notice.htm>                             * * * * *  In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. section 107, this material is distributed without profit or payment to those who have expressed a prior interest in receiving this information for non-profit research and educational purposes only. ___________________________________________________________________                                 FASCISM:    We have no ethical right to forgive, no historical right to forget.    (No permission required for noncommercial reproduction)                                 - - - - -                         back issues archived via:         <ftp://ftp.nyct.net/pub/users/tallpaul/publish/tinaf/>
