Stormfront

Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera.
Template-info.svg

Stormfront è un forum di discussione su internet, caratterizzato dal fatto di dare espressione a posizioni di nazionalismo bianco, supremazia bianca[1], antisemitismo e neonazismo[2]; è indicato anche come il più grande sito d'odio presente in internet[3].

Il sito va on line nei primi anni novanta e nel 1995 diviene il sito web di riferimento dell'ex-leader del Ku Klux Klan, Don Black. Riceve l'attenzione dei media statunitensi nel 2000 dopo essere diventato il soggetto principale di un documentario denominato Hate.com.

In Italia[modifica | modifica sorgente]

In Italia viene alla ribalta per avere pubblicato una blacklist di ebrei italiani appartenenti al mondo della cultura, della politica, dell'informazione e della televisione[4]. Nel novembre 2012 Polizia postale e Digos hanno notificato delle ordinanze di custodia cautelare in carcere a tre moderatori del sito e un altro soggetto. Gli arrestati sono indagati per delitti realizzati su internet per incitamento all’odio razziale e antisemitismo. Il sito, con provvedimento richiesto dal PM ed emesso dal GIP, è stato reso inaccessibile dall'Italia.[5]
