Neo-Nazi Web Forum Iron March Has SQL Database Dumped on the Internet Archive - 2019-11-08
AWD has been tied to three other murders, a Las Vegas terrorism plot, and violence during a notorious white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 that resulted in the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer and scores of injuries. More recently, a YouTube user who was either a member or supporter of the group reportedly released a video calling for the murder of journalists it believes are members of anti-fascist movements, seemingly based in part on a series of articles run by right-wing site Quillette. Members of Vanguard America, whose supporter James Alex Fields carried out the attack at the rally, also have ties to Iron March, the Guardian wrote.
The paper noted that Iron March was influential in the development of so-called "accelerationist" neo-Nazi ideology, which advocates the destabilization of democratic governance by demonstrating its inability to effectively respond to mass violence, as well as helped popularize American neo-Nazi James Mason's Siege Culture work calling for independent terror cells to kick off a race war.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, which has previously scraped data from Iron March, wrote that the site was "ultimately affiliated with or offered support to at least nine fascist groups in nine different countries" of varying size or influence at the time of its disappearance. Those include Serbia Action in Serbia, Casa Pound of Italy, Golden Dawn of Greece, Antipodean Resistance of Australia, Skydas of Lithuania, and Azov Battalion of the Ukraine, the SPLC wrote, as well as Vanguard America and Patriot Front in the states.
