As most White nationalists know by now, Bill White of Roanoke, VA has been Indicted for Obstruction of Justice and Threatening a federal Juror.
Apparently, after Bill declared bankruptcy in June, (reported by the main stream media here) the feds smelled blood in the water. With White financially broke, they probably thought he would be easy prey.
The FBI served a search warrant upon him last week (view it here) and seized his web site server which took down his web sites, Overthrow.com and ANSWP.org on Wednesday.
White was arrested on Friday and is being held in jail without bail which has now been reported in the main stream media here, here and here.
I first broke the story that a federal grand jury was investigating White on October 7 (here) after I spoke with several White Nationalists who had been subpoenaed to appear before that Grand Jury. I was able to confirm the grand Jury story on October 9 (here).
I was not subpoenaed and I did not testify.
It is no secret that Bill White and I have had a rough relationship over the years. It is no secret we are no longer friends. Yet, when I found out what he had been charged with, my first inclination was to help.
During the time I did my radio show, from the year 2000 through 2008, I secured very high priced legal counsel from two prestigious law firms here in New Jersey, about what I could get away with saying on the air and on my web site.
I have vast legal documentation about relevant case law that protects speech, defines threats, defines what constitutes incitement to commit . . . . . just about anything. In fact, I know at least four recent court cases that would absolutely squash the "Threatening a federal Juror" charge now pending against White.
While I am not yet sure about why the government charged him with Obstruction of Justice, there are reams of case law on that charge also, much of which can be used to obliterate the Obstruction charge pending against White.
While my initial reaction was to help Bill, his past with me has now come back to haunt him.
On more than one occasion, Bill fabricated outright lies about me. One of the more aggravating lies surrounded why I ended Bill's radio show on Turner Radio Network.
Long-time Listeners may recall that Bill was using his show to stir shit within the movement. He attacked other White nationalists by name, made allegations about other groups and did a lot to make many of our comrades very upset.
He openly admitted his intentions to destabilize all groups other than his American National Socialist Workers Party (ANSWP), then collect the cream of the crop from those groups into ANSWP.
I tried repeatedly to have Bill rein-in his behavior and stop attacking our own, to no avail. The straw that broke the camel's back was when a man we all respect, Tom Metzger, called-in to White's show to ask Bill to knock-off his attacks against other Whites.
Tom Metzger is a great man. He is a friend of mine and he has paid an awful price for his zealous defense of our race.
Instead of handling Metzger with respect, White told me "Hal, take Tom off the air." This egregious lack of people skills, done during a live radio show against a verteran of the pro-white movement was the end of Bill Show's on my network. I called Bill the next day to tell him I would no longer air his show.
Bill went nutty. He fabricated a series of outrageous lies about me, claiming he sent me a check for $3,000 to fund his show for an entire year. He never sent any such check.
Bill then claimed that I tried to cash the check and steal the money from him by canceling his radio show! Another outrageous lie.
He and I didn't talk for months after that. Then, Bill's web hosting company succumbed to pressure from Jewish and gay groups, and took Bill's site off the net.
I decided that someone needed to step up and defend the right to free speech, so I approached Bill and offered to host his sites. He accepted and within a day, Overthrow.com and ANSWP.org were back online, via my co-located server.
I hosted Bills sites for a few months until he got a data line installed in Roanoke and took over his own site hosting. The entire cooperative effort between Bill and me seemed to help rebuild relations between us. ; or so I thought.
In August 2007, I found out how wrong I was. I organized a rally against black gang violence in Kalamazoo, MI. I invited every pro-White group and made major plans to have a peaceful, safe, law-abiding rally.
Without warning or reason, Bill White showed up in Kalamazoo. But instead of standing with us, Bill got in front of TV cameras to tell people I was a "fraud." Bill called me a "con artist" and claimed that my only goal was to make money off people in the movement.
So vicious was Bill White, that he asked his ANSWP group to come to Kalamazoo (ostensibly to stand with us) and only when his people arrived at the local hotel did Bill inform them that they would be protesting ME! Half his members walked out that very day because Bill proved he was a no good traitor.
After that stunt in Kalamazoo, I wrote Bill White off as a sociopath. He and I never spoke again.
Later, Bill continued with his treacherous fabrications and attacks. Post after post on his site filled with the most vile lies. Post after post on places like VNNForum where a cadre of other halfwit, bankrupt, malcontents joined him to bash the shit out of me. Day after day, week after week, the onslaught continued until Alex Linder got so fed up, he threw Bill off VNN.
So, here we are, more than a year later and once again, I am in a position to help Bill White. Not this time.
As far as I am concerned, Bill White can drop fucking dead.
I have the ability to help him. I have vast legal defenses which would probably help his attorney defeat the government charges but I will not help.
The ironic part about it is that all his "members" and "supporters" can't or won't help him either!
Revenge is a dish best served cold. Today, I exact my revenge. Today I let Bill White go down in flames.
