Red Lake Killer Online

Yesterday, 16-year old Jeff Weise of Red Lake, Minnesota, ran amok and killed 9 people (including his grandfather, and 7 people from his high school) before committing suicide. The Google cache of reveals some of his thoughts in older forum postings. Jeff uses the nickname Todesengel (German for “angel of death”) but also reveals his true name in the post. On April last year, he wrote:

“What brings me to the forum? Well, I stumbled across the site in my study of the Third Reich as well as Nazism, amongst other things. I guess I’ve always carried a natural admiration for Hitler and his ideals, and his courage to take on larger nations. I also have a natural dis-like for communism.

When I was growing up, I was taught (like others) that Nazi’s were (are) evil and that Hitler was a very evil man [etc]... Of course, not for a second did I believe this. Upon reading up on his actions, the ideals and issues the German Third Reich [addressed], I began to see how much of a lie had been painted about them. They truly were doing it for the better.

It kind of angers me how people pass pre-judgement on someone if they even so much as say something like “I support what Hitler did,” without even hearing what you have to say. This goes double if you’re ethnic. I also hear things like, “oh he had syphilis, he was crazy and [that’s] why he did what he did.” Or, “he molested his [niece],” it’s easy to see that even today people are trying to destroy the image of a man who deserves great respect... (...)

Once I commit myself to something, I stay until the end...”

Jeff Weise also posted using the Nick “NativeNazi”. His email was, and his Yahoo ID was “verlassen4_20”, which is German and translates to “abandoned 4/20” – 4/20 was both Hitler’s Birthday, and the day of the Columbine High School shooting. Jeff wrote he is affiliated with the “Ojibwe” tribe. And:

“Under a National Socialist government, things for us would improve vastly... That is, if we haven’t already become too soft from the way this materialistic life-style has made us, and that is why I am pro-Nazi. It’s hard though, being a Native American National Socialist, people are so misinformed, ignorant, and close minded it makes your life a living hell, but I know if we achieve what we set out to, it will be worth it all.”
