“Rounder is dead!
Ding dong! Hope all is well!”
I was unaware that Rounder had passed away. He appears to have died of natural causes.
“OVERLAND PARK, Kan. —The self-avowed anti-Semite convicted of murdering three people on the Jewish Community Center campus in Overland Park, Kansas, in 2014 has died in prison.
A notice from the Kansas Department of Corrections said Frazier Glenn Cross, Jr., died Monday at the El Dorado Correctional facility.
Officials with KDOC said it is believed that Cross died of natural causes, however, an autopsy is set to be performed in this case. Cross had been imprisoned within the Kansas Department of Corrections since November 2015. …”
For those who are unfamiliar with Frazier Glenn Miller, he was a longtime White Nationalist who shot and killed a 14-year-old Methodist Eagle Scout and his 69-year-old grandfather outside a synagogue in in Overland Park, KS in 2014. He had a notorious reputation within the White Nationalist movement for testifying against The Order as a state witness in the Fort Smith Trial back in the 1980s.
Back in the 2000s, I ran a free speech forum called The Phora which was one of the places where the proto-Alt-Right was gestating during the George W. Bush administration. It was just a place for people to hang out and chat about edgy rightwing politics free of all the stupid taboos about race and Jews and other subjects. The core audience was White Nationalists who were interested in a broader range of subjects than race. I was very proud of the fact that the forum collected and hosted debates between White Nationalists, conservatives, libertarians, Neo-Nazis, socialists, communists, etc. I thought it was fun and intellectually stimulating at the time to host an online Royal Rumble of all these different perspectives. I was even proud of the kooks and cranks who were an endless source of amusement.
Somewhere around 2005, Frazier Glenn Miller or Rounder as he was known to us showed up and registered an account on the forum. He was the nemesis of Pastor Lindstedt of the Church of Jesus Christ Christian/Aryan Nation of Missouri. Lindstedt challenged Glenn Miller to a showdown in the Walmart parking lot in Aurora, MO to settle an ancient beef in the White Nationalist movement. Rounder was mainly interested in raising donations to support VNN Forum’s tabloid The Aryan Alternative. This was at a time when politics was shifting online, but before the rise of social media.
I was a Xennial in my early twenties at the time. I was learning about all of these Boomers and their ancient beefs from the WN 1.0 movement which seemed remote from what we were creating. It was around this time that I learned about the difference in strategy and outlook within the movement between “mainstreamers” and “vanguardists.” Rounder was a diehard who came out of the vanguardist school although he oscillated between these two tendencies. He ran for U.S. Senate in Missouri, distributed a tabloid to persuade people to join his cause and he also supported street activism. He wasn’t entirely opposed to engaging in politics. I recall digging up his Declaration of War on the United States government and roasting him about it back in the 2000s. He vowed to die in a blaze of glory with the sword in his hand and requested to be buried while giving Nazi salute as he ascended to Valhalla. It struck me at the time as just lulz and solidified my impression of him as an aging inept blowhard.
The only reason that I am bringing this up now is because those of us who share the concerns of people like Rounder about the future of White people in this country, but definitely not their strategy or tactics or messaging, now stand at a crossroads. Violent accelerationism was the distinct product of a different time when White people were extremely complacent about their future in the 1980s. Back then, the country was not racially polarized and the corporate media was not stoking racial division and demonizing White people 24/7 on cable news. The era of Joe Six Pack and Sally Soccermom is finally over.
Violent accelerationism has been debunked by recent events. White identity is resurgent. White people are waking up now and beginning to realize what changing racial and cultural demographics means for them. White people are getting more defensive, alarmed and assertive by the day. It was always a terrible idea and a ridiculous strategy, but is even more pointless to engage in a mass shooting now to “stir up racial polarization” or to “wake up White people” now when the f***ing media is going to do that anyway. Black Lives Matter and Antifa are doing a far better job “accelerating” things and have succeeded in convincing ordinary people that they are their enemies. Doing nothing is a better strategy than trying to be a hero because as events run their course and woke supremacy is taken to its logical conclusion by the political establishment it will inevitably “wake up” far more White people without any of the costs.
