Hate on the World Wide Web: A Brief Guide to Cyberspace Bigotry
Posted: March 1, 2000
A diabolical mixture of racism, anti-Semitism, and religion, the Identity Church movement teaches that Anglo-Saxons are the Jews described in the Bible, that Jews are the descendants of Satan, and that Blacks and other minorities are inferior "mud people." The G.O.A.L. Reference Library Web site contains documents such as The Talmud: Judaism's Holiest Book Exposed, which erroneously claims that the Talmud preaches violence against Christians, and Facts are Facts, which falsely asserts that today's Jews are not descended from the Jews described in the Bible. Expressing approval for white separatism, the Web site for militant Identity group Aryan Nations calls Jews "the natural enemy of our Aryan (White) Race," a "destroying virus that attacks our racial body to destroy our Aryan culture and the purity of our Race." Voicing support for alleged abortion clinic bomber Eric Robert Rudolph, James Wickstrom and August Kreis, leaders of the violent anti-Government group, Posse Comitatus, claim at their Web site that the "federal government has grossly overstepped its bounds" because it is run by Jews, "Satan's 'kids.'" In addition to these Identity sites, Be Wise as Serpents, Kingdom Identity Ministries, The Lords Work and many more are currently available online.
