Devin Arthur the face of Stormer-White-Sharia-not-sure-if-ironic-beta-uprising-jihadism
The jury is still out on what the Daily Stormer is up to. Whether it is a JIDF-controlled psyops operation that simply aims to discredit White nationalism and traditional family roles in a reductio ad extremis way, or whether it is just the most colourful example of Jewish self-loathing (come on, just look at those two guys) it is hard to tell. It might just be 100% percent pure troll. 

But whatever it is, because of the extremely young and impressionable audience it targets, it is essentially playing with fire, both for itself and others. Recently the site has been pushing the idea of "White Sharia," an obviously unworkable notion borrowed from Islam that Whites can only survive by oppressing and abusing their women to the same degree that some Muslim societies do. 

Now it seems the Stormer’s experimentation with Islamic tropes has seriously backfired, after one of its young followers became a fully-fledged Islamist nut job and killed two others who didn't, described on the Stormer website as normal "Nazi shit posters."

The killer Devin Arthur 18, was like his two victims, Jeremy Himmelman, 22, and Andrew Oneschuk, 18, a typical Stormer/ Ironmarch hanger-on -- a very angry, very ironic young white man. They were all part of a small Nazi troll operation called Atomwaffen, whose content the Stormer reposted. 

But, as suggested by the White Sharia campaign, it seems there is a very thin line between "Stormer mind" and "Isis mind," the Middle East's own gang of beta-uprising trolls. Devin Arthur made an apparently seamless transition to fully-fledged jihadi -- or, more accurately, young white kid who LARPed as a fully-fledged jihadi -- then fell out with his fellow Stormerlings and brutally offed them, presumably over minor ideological differences. 

On Sunday, police identified the victims as Jeremy Himmelman, 22, and Andrew Oneschuk, 18. Both were living at 15350 Amberly Drive, Tampa, the same address as the defendant. About 5:30 p.m., police were called to Green Planet Smoke Shop, 15325 Amberly Drive, where a possibly armed man was reported. Once there, they found Arthurs was armed. He had told two customers and an employee that they could not leave. Police talked to Arthurs, and he agreed to let the hostages go and to surrender his weapon. He was taken into custody. While officer interviewed him. Arthurs told them he had killed two people, and told them where the bodies were. Police went to the scene, where they found two bodies suffering gunshot wounds." 
I guess this is why the Stormer runs this disclaimer on its front page: "We here at the Daily Stormer are opposed to violence." Yeh, sure.

And I guess this is also why the unconstitutional case brought against the site by Tanya Gersh now has an increased chance of succeeding, as one thing the law places undue weight on in cases like this are violent outcomes. But maybe that's the whole point of the Stormer -- namely to make it easier to set precedents for shutting down dissident views on social media.

  1. This incident had nothing to do with DS.

  2. This incident was nothing to do jihad and nothing to do with #WhiteSharia. Most likely drugs wholesaled by Hispanics and retailed by Blacks are the cause.
