download PDF (71.7 kibibytes) This HBO program examines how hate groups are disseminating their violent messages and reaching new converts around the world via the Internet. Morris Dees, founder and director of the Southern Poverty Law Center in Alabama, narrates this penetrating video as it also looks at why the Internet is the perfect medium for those who thrive when operating within dark and shadowy places. As a lawyer and popular speaker on the subject of hate crimes, Dees is personally familiar with the far-reaching damage these groups are inflicting with their incendiary websites. Using a series of terrible images drawn directly from the Internet, news reports and interviews with white supremacist leaders, this documentary demonstrates how far the fringe has advanced.

Don Black, godfather of the Internet racist movement, began Stormfront.com in 1995, explains why: ''I'm tired of the Jewish monopoly over the news media and the entertainment media, and I'm working very hard to provide an alternative to that, and the Internet is that opportunity we've been looking for.''

Before, he explains, it was hard to disseminate his ''politically unfashionable'' (and evil) views about Jews and blacks, and he was forced to rely on inefficient methods like leaflets and newspapers. Now, the Internet has extended his reach by quantum leaps and for much less cost.

This is required viewing in today’s political and cultural environment.

We hope to see you at the Great American Write In, in the morning, and then view this film with us in the afternoon.
