Brooklyn Councilman Lew Fidler’s State Senate campaign is officially taking the gloves off with this just-sent press release archiving a sample of his GOP opponent, David Storobin’s, controversial writings for the world to peruse.
Fidler has spent the past several days been highlighting his opponent’s ties to the group Global Politican, which has links to skin head and white supremacist groups. But Storobin told the Daily News he had no idea his post had been picked up by extremist sites and called Fidler’s charges “nothing but an assault and a slander.”
Room 8 blogger Gatemouth, who has been doing much of the investigating into Storobin’s writing, released his latest salvo against Storobin last night.
Fidler has also recently had some bad press — most notably, a Post article about the Brooklyn Democrat illegally parking his car next to Brooklyn Borough Hall, which is adjacent to Fidler’s law office.
Councilman Fidler’s Campaign Calls on Mr. Storobin to Come Clean On Ties To White Supremacist Websites
Storobin’s Sympathetic Interviews with Skinhead and White Supremacist Sites Have Been Wiped Off the Web
(Brooklyn, New York) Today Councilman Fidler’s campaign for State Senate called on his opponent, Mr. Storobin, to release all writings, interview transcripts, and links to white supremacist and skinhead sites that have been wiped from the internet since Mr. Storobin announced his candidacy for State Senate.
As soon as questions started swirling regarding his writings, Mr. Storobin’s entire internet archive was wiped clean, but his interviews and articles on hate websites remain. Additionally, Mr. Storobin held a smoke-and-mirrors press conference hours ago where he offered no denial or explanation as to the connection between himself and why these writings appear on hate websites.
“Mr. Storobin should stop hiding his true beliefs,” said campaign spokeswoman, Jenn Krinsky. “If there was nothing offensive in any of these writings or interviews, then why did Mr. Storobin delete them from his website, and leave us only the writings that still exist on white supremacist and hate sites, such as Stormfront, American Renaissance or Phora?”
Stormfront is a white nationalist and supremacist internet forum, described as the first internet hate site. American Renaissance is a monthly racialist magazine. Some of Mr. Storobin’s writings appear on these websites, which are inherently sympathetic to the causes of the white separatist Afrikaner Independence Movement, the Minutemen and other extremists. The website of Phora proclaims to “discuss racialism, eugenics, nationalism, holocaust revisionism, history, philosophy, science, politics.”
All of the archived documents are reproductions of Mr. Storobin’s original writings. The originals have been deleted from where they were hosted in the wake of Mr. Storobin’s announcement that he would be running for the State Senate against Mr. Fidler.
“It’s more than suspicious how all of these writings have been deleted and that the only remnants are on these skinhead websites from which Mr. Storobin cannot delete,” said Ms. Krinsky. “If Mr. Storobin insists on continuing to deny any wrongdoing, let him come clean. Mr. Storobin, show us everything you’ve deleted. More importantly, show the voters of the 27th Senate District. You have a responsibility to the residents of Brooklyn to be honest about your internet ranting and ravings. Why did they up on white supremacist websites? Come clean, Mr. Storobin. Come clean today.”
The following is a list of links describing the nature of the supremacist websites where Mr. Storobin’s writings were published, and links to the articles themselves on the supremacist websites in question:
