Evaluating Curtis

Alex Curtis argues that white supremacists "should never apologize for hate crimes," which he calls "the understandable result of the race-mixers' forcing together of the races." "If anything," he protests, the government "should be held accountable" for hate crimes, not "racists who are out of power."

Promoting the philosophy that White Aryan Resistance leader Tom Metzger calls "worse is better,"

Curtis encourages so-called "anti-white" policies because they would provide supremacists with an excuse to strike back.

"When you want to initiate change you want people to be seething with hate," he writes. "Hate is an emotion that causes people and institutions to take actions against one another and create change. We should encourage niggers to hate us and Jews to hate us and increase the hatred they feel for us."

Curtis' racist newspaper, The Nationalist Observer
This 'Aryan Kamikaze' was Benjamin Smith, who murdered a Korean-American and an African-American and wounded Jews near their synagogue in a racially motivated shooting spree in July 1999.
Though he refuses to condemn hate crimes committed against minorities, Curtis is still critical of them -- but for reasons that are perverse. He evaluates these acts according to their "contribution" to the white racist "cause." Following the conviction of John William King in the dragging-death of James Byrd Jr. in Jasper, TX, Curtis said, "Here's another crime that wasn't thought out well since it ended up trading the life of one mud for that of several white men. If King was a good lone wolf he wouldn't try to start a group. He would take out niggers by other methods that are less obvious and messy. And he would do them alone." Similarly, Curtis believes that World Church of the Creator member Benjamin Smith's July 1999 Midwest shooting spree "would have been better spent had his actions been thought out and planned carefully." Because it "ain't very productive to kill niggers and [Jews] at random," Curtis reasons Smith "could easily have targeted high profile individuals."
