American Front’s White Supremacist David Lynch Shot To Death

Death: sad. Death: not funny. David Lynch’s death: ummmm … hard to feel entirely terrible about. The white supremacist leader and head of American Front was found shot to death in his Sacramento home, with bullet wounds in his head and torso, early Wednesday morning. “Close friend” Charles Gilbert Demar III, a tattoo artist, has been detained on an unrelated narcotics charge; police labeled him a person of interest, though they haven’t released a motive. And so ends a three-decade long stint as one of America’s scummiest.

    um… “He HOT!!”

    (sorry, I had to say something inappropriate and “good” didn’t seem to fit.)

    While I would much more have rather read a story about him seeing the error of his ways and asking the gay, Jewish, Hispanic and black communities to forgive him and hear him say he was going to spend his life trying to bridge gaps and talk to youth about diversity, it’s hard to feel TOO bad about this. But it does feel bad to know that a man spent his whole life immersed in hatred and died violently. Seems like such a waste.

  • justiceontherocks

    @RedAssault: Not hot. Very cold.

  • scott ny'er

    can’t muster any sadness for this. And that is sad.

  • Mike in Asheville

    I, for one, am delighted to hear that this scum bag is dead. Quite happy to hear this, as in “Ding dong, the witch is dead!”

    Anyone who advocates against and/or participates (and this smuck did both) in denying others their rights to “life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness” forfeits those rights for themselves.

    Enemies of freedom and equality deserve neither. Sometimes there are people, including Lynch, who do not deserve to live. Good riddance.

  • Simon

    I understand he was an idiot – but being happy about his death is good beginning to be like he. Someday you’ll be also dead, so please respect that.

  • Wes

    I feel more for roadkill. Seriously.

  • Red Meat

    Maybe he was a huge closet case and finally made the move on his friend and ended up dead!

  • Spike

    Always nice to see when bad things happen to bad people.

    Funny that his close friend is the suspect. Agreed that there was probably a very deep secret held by both.

  • hf2hvit

    “Simon I understand he was an idiot – but being happy about his death is good beginning to be like he. Someday you’ll be also dead, so please respect that>> NO!!! REALLY?!?!?! OMG!!!! NOBODY TOLD ME!!! But I guess it’s OK for real christians to go celebrate when a prisoner is hanged, zapped, gassed or injected to death.

  • Kev C

    I’d hate to die wearing an undersized plaid shirt. He’s probably wondering, why did I bother living just to wear bad shirts?

  • NMV

    um…Yay!!

  • wtf

    I will NEVER understand what the big fucking deal is about death. Everyone does it! Big deal! And yes, I’m GLAD he’s gone! All he did was engender hate, bigotry and violence. So fuck him! He’s dead! Let’s not all pretend like it’s some real loss here. He was a waste of flesh.

  • Wes

    The world is a slightly better place without him in it. You know its true.

    Oh pleeeeeeeeease, get real.

    It’s the cycle of life that we all die, sooner or later. That some miserable SOB who has violated others for being different than his inbred sorry white ass is dead is a happy occasion. There is absolutely nothing to “respect” about this violence advocating bigot — I’ll save my respect for his victims.

  • Oprah

    Sorry, i really tried to cry and feel sad. To no avail. :( However, lets say–his tatoo buddy who is currently a ‘person of interest’ ends up being his affectionate secret gay lover– oh then i will feel sorry. I will cry really hard. I mean, after all, he would be my gay brother. Rock on, gay brotherhood! LOL

  • Apple

    the best part of this is the person the cops have as a person of interest is also a Skinhead( he was in the same group as David Lynch( if you go to the Sacramento bees online site they have 2 stories on this)kinda funny to see skinheads killing other skinheads. the death of this racist motherfucker is a happy day i have no remorse at all as he was a racist piece of shit that advocated hate and violent acts on Minority groups( like the LGBTQI community…if this guy believed in a afterlife i hope this fucker is roasting in hell…

  • Sexy Rexy

    @Mike in Asheville: Couldn’t agree with you more. I am also happy that this piece of filth is dead.

    if the gay community had men half as manly as this hot white aryan man it would not be in shambles. i hate having a black man hit on me in a gay bar. yuck!

    ain’t nothing more hot than a racist white man. i’m sick of looking at these washed-up politically correct weirdos in gay bars and want a real man.

  • TheRealAdam

    @mister larry: LOL, good heavens…

  • Steven Zuckerborg

    As I live in big city, I was quite sure that there’d be a wide variety of places for me to choose from even with my limited funds without an exhaustive search, I’d be able to find somewhere perfectly satisfactory to leave my child every day. Only to realize later that finding an adequate daycare is based mainly on two factors – location and luck. And I was flat out on both. Even finding the most basic daycare facility seems to be impossible. Please provide some help for single moms like us! More information here http://www.financialhelpsinglemother.com

  • AverageSoccerMom

    Before you all start staggering around drunk in your high heels having a good laugh at a dead man’s expense, know that he was not hateful or obsessed over the gay thing. Someone close to him had a relative that was gay, and he didn’t make a big deal of it at all or any deal of it, for that matter. Oh and in case you were unaware, there are gays that are white nationalists or have similar sympathies , and guess what? They just don’t make a big deal of it, because believe it or not, they see other things as much more important than making their sexuality their entire identity or into a political agenda. And no, sorry to disappoint but Lynch himself wasn’t light in the loafers even a little bit.

  • Kev C

    @AverageSoccerMom: You can take David’s cock out of your mouth now that he’s dead.

  • scribe

    @AverageSoccerMom: oh he was a okay guy cause he only hated jews, blacks and mexicans?? f-you.

  • Sexy Rexy

    @mister larry: LOL, how pitifully funny.

  • Shannon1981

    @AverageSoccerMom: You are deluded. In case you haven’t noticed, you are on a GAY BLOG. Of course here,it will seem like we all make being gay our entire lives. We sit here and talk about being gay and gay news and things that are relevant to well BEING GAY. However, I am quite sure that is not the entire identity of almost anyone on this site.

    But, just reading that post more than likely means that you are woefully ignorant, and I am probably wasting my time replying to you. However, I can’t help but wonder what kind of person you must be to come here and defend a hate mongering bigot. Yes, we are glad he’s dead. The world is a much better place without him. I hope it comes out he was banging the dude that killed him.

  • Soupy

    live by the sword/gun/knife…die by it.

  • whatever

    @Hank: yeah, whites are becoming a minority. ha, great job he did.

  • B

    No. 38 · whatever wrote,”@Hank: yeah, whites are becoming a minority.” …. Don’t know about the U.S. as a whole, but that seems to be the case in California, where whites are now 42.3% of the population according to the 2010 census. One particularly nice thing about it is that we get more holidays to celebrate – at least two new years (Julian and lunar calendars), Cinco de Mayo, Memorial day, 4th of July, [various unmentionable San Francisco street fares], The Mid Autumn festival (if you like moon cakes), Halloween, etc.

  • Jeffree

    It’ll be ironic if the killer does turn out to be another white supremicist. Those guys love to play up the dângers of so many POCs in the US, but they often destroy their own kind. We’ve seen that with many of the skînhëad groups in Europe as well.

    @B: Good point on more holidays!

  • mister larry

    how many gays did this dead man bash? i bet none.

    buti have personally seen black and halfrican and white druggie trash bash gay white men all the time or else white wiggers & hip hop lovers bash gay white men.

    this is what makes me sick about the gay community– it simply will never face the reality of who really hates and bashes queers.

    google micah painter. a queer bashed by a russian jew criminal. he ended up with shards of glass stuck in his skin. the russian jew and his druggie friends that bashed him hated white racists and the russian jew greaseball essentially got away with the gay bashing.

    it’s time for queers to face reality and put down the gay magazines.

  • Brian Miller

    Who invited the KKK in, and why isn’t the bouncer at the door?

  • kevininbuffalo

    Any one trying that hard to look and act macho has to be a closet case.

  • JoeyO'H

    I’m intrigued by the phrasing, he was found by his “close friend” which to me implies something hidden especially with quotations. Anyone else get that vibe??

    It’s sad when someone is murdered, but my guess, this guy has made many enemies in his life… It is what it is.

  • AverageSoccerMom

    Can you not see the hatred you are emitting in attacking someone who came here to tell you the truth about the murdered guy- that he wasn’t a f*g hater nor a closet queen and probably never gave it much thought.While most white nationalists are not into the parade mentality, most look the other way at gay unless the person makes it a huge deal. The response to what I posted only shows your paranoia and hate.

    You have it wrong about groups sticking together and the whole multicultural stuff. That’s all a paper tiger, only good in theory while times are civilized and there’s enough PC bread and circuses for all. If society continues to stratify at the rate it is, you will also be counted amongst the Haves whatever your orientation if you are a gay white and attacked by the other groups- not for your sexual preference- no one will care about that then, but by race. Kind of the way groups naturally sort themselves out: Look at any high school cafeteria.

  • Shannon1981

    @AverageSoccerMom: Do you not realize that none of us here care what you have to say? You came here to defend a despicable waste of flesh. I guarantee you the only people who are interested are other trolls like yourself. Get lost.

  • Kev C

    @AverageSoccerMom: David obviously deserves the tolerance award for diversity. His approval of homosexuality should be tattooed on his dead corpse with pink ink.

  • Soupy

    Gee Mister Larry, you’re so charming. Date much?

  • Bianca

    Reading these posts I find myself absolutely disgusted. As you people bitch and complain and force all of america to tolerate you and cry abt equal rights and being discriminated against you sure have no issue reveling in a mans death. He was more than just his beliefs. He was a wonderful person to be around, a father, a human being. He wasn’t some dumbass hollywood skinhead he was a man who stood for what he believed in. similar to what any person does. How dare you laugh and say youre HAPPY HES DEAD AND THAT HE WAS A WASTE OF FLESH because he thought differently. If,u believe that then you dont deserve any of the rights ur denied. He had a right as an american to believe and practice his beliefs just like the christians, or the gays, or any lameo cause ppl support. I knew this man personally and he was a caring and loving PERSON. and before you idiots start with more of your stupid comments, think about the children that lost their father, or the woman carrying his child. Put urself therebefore opening ur idiot mouths. U should be disgusted. Oh and by the way, im mixed race and I am proud to say I feel honored to have known this MAN. Fucking losers. Enough is enough. U dont like him because he believed in a cause you dont agree with. Too bad. He didnt deserve to die. His children dont deserve to feel this pain. His girl doesn’t deserve to lose her love. His mother shouldn’t have lost her boy. And then to see the horrible things ppl who didnt evn know him have to say? Wow.

  • Kev C

    @Bianca: TL;DR, but why do skinheads care what gays think of them?

  • thematics

    How funny it is that a skinhead woman is called Bianca, which means “white.”

  • Mike in Asheville

    @Bianca:

    What a fucked up delusional pinhead you are!

    Lynch was a WHITE SUPREMACIST, stupid. He was against any non-whites being equal and advocated against all non-whites from enjoying the same rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness he believed belongs solely to his white people.

    And you’re mixed race? Really? Either you are anglo + saxon (which doesn’t count) or he hated you too for being half mud.

  • Bianca

    @thematics: I find it sad that the only reply you could give was inaccurate. Idiot. Maybe you should have read my comment thoroughly before saying anything and you would know that I am neither WHITE OR A SKINHEAD. LIKE,I STATED ABOVE, I AM MIXED RACE AND my name is Bianca, NOT BLANCHE OR BLANCA, THEREFORE IT DOESN’T MEAN WHITE. and as far as skinheads caring what gays think about them, I honestly don’t believe they do. For you people to rejoice in a persons violent death because of his beliefs is atrocious. Who are you to say his death was a positive thing simply because you don’t agree with what he had to say, that he deservd to die for standing by them and not being afraid to voice them when asked, is ridiculous. None of you cowards would have the balls to say these things to the lil girl mourning her daddy. All of you stand and speak of the injustice you feel at being discriminated against for the way you choose to live life, for feeling like a sub class of humans, and preach about only wanting to be accepted, while condemning this human based on things you have heard about him. HOW CAN U SAY HE WAS SCUM. you didnt know this man. You assume he was some stereotypical image you created in your minds, or the media clips of him. This is a prejudice at its worst.

  • Bianca

    @Mike in Asheville: lol delusional pinhead? No in sorry in am very lucid. I find it appalling that he has been spoken of as a thing instead of a human because of his BELIEFS. you must be absolutely retarded or illiterate. HE WAS MORE THAN THAT. and if you people are happy this MAN was murdered because ur uncomfortable with wat he had to say or how he thought, then I pity you. And half mud? I find that absolutely hilarious. Furthermore, you didnt have the pleasure of meeting this wonderful man so ur assumptions of him arent valid in any forum. If he did hate me for my “impure blood” lol, he never mentioned that in any of the many conversations we had.

  • Bianca

    I dont care what he believed in. that was his RIGHT AS AN AMERICAN, AND BEING THAT YOU OBVIOUSLY SUPPORT WHATS SAID IN THE CONSTITUTION, HOW DO YOU THINK YOU CAN SAY HE WAS WRONG? IT ISNT TAILORED TO ONLY TO BLACKS WHITES GAYS WOMEN MEN BUT AMERICANS!!! Maybe you shouldn’t be so prejudiced! HAHA…

  • thematics

    @Bianca:
    Bianca IS the Italian word for white. Not knowing that makes you dim.

    And you don’t know what irony is.

    You can speak of how wonderful your white supremeacist racist friend was, but in preaching his hatred and violence toward others, his ideology had direct effects on people whom he did not favour as much as you. Pray for his soul.

  • Bianca

    reedom of association, in a political context, is merely the extension of the right to determine with whom to associate in one’s personal life. For example, somebody who valued good manners or etiquette may not relish associating with someone who was not decent or was uncouth. Or, thoseopposed to homosexuality probably would not enjoy associating with gay people. In both instances, a person is voluntarily deciding with whom to associate, based on his/her own volition.Expressive associations are groupsthat engage in activities protected by the First Amendment—speech, assembly, press, petitioning government for a redress of grievances, and the free exercise of religion. In Roberts v. United States Jaycees, the SupremeCourt held that associations may not exclude people for reasons unrelated to the group’sexpression. However, in the subsequent decisions of Hurley v. Irish-American Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Group of Boston and Boy Scouts of America v. Dale, the Court ruled that a group may exclude people from membership if their presence would affect the group’s ability to advocate a particular point of view. The government cannot, through the use of anti-discrimination laws, force groups to includea message that they do not wish to convey. So if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Bye bye.

  • thematics

    @Bianca:
    Bianca is the Italian word for ‘white’ and your not knowing this makes you dim. And questionable.

    You also don’t understand what ‘irony’ is.

    You can defend your racist, white supremacist friend all you like, but that does not change the fact that his ideology has resulted in loss of lives.

    I hope your own behaviour has not been influenced by such bearers of hatred.

  • angel85

    god cant you people see what your doing you are attacking people who stand up for what they and he believed in i doesn’t matter what you think some of these people aka Bianca my cousin had the honor of meeting this man and you are downing her when she knows who this guys is because you dont support his believes? it just goes to show how petty and fickle this world really is next time someone judges you for something that you believe in or love dont whine and say they dont accept you for who you are because next time it will probably be you being downed on at your funeral…..i feel so bad for his family what if they were to see this? what if they were to read this? would you be the ones standing in front of his baby and saying that crap to her? would you talk trash to her about her daddy? if you say yes then you really have no place here…and you really are sick and need help

  • Bianca

    lmfao it seems wehave gotten off track. The pointbeing you are trashing a human being because you dont like his personal beliefs. You people should be ashamed of yourselves for behaving as though he personally infringed upon your way of life. I am proud to have known him and pity you people for being unable to accept the fact that he had every right to defend his beliefs and stand for what he thought was right. You dont have to like it, but it isnt your place to crack jokes and make light of someones death. Look past the cause and look at the man, or how about the severe loss his children have suffered. To lose their father and also have to deal with small minded individuals with an opinion. Have some respect for them and for yourselves. He wasn’t a hatemonger to them, or to the many other people that knw and loved him dearly. So whatever. If that makes me another classification to you people, I honestly feel sorry for you. Losers.

  • kris10ferg

    @Bianca: FYI: I too am appauled by all the horrific mean spirited comments that his children will eventually come across given teenagers are all about the google far more than us adults and I stumble upon these comments. You all should be ashamed of yourselves. I know Dave and basically my beliefs and his beliefs clashed and we didnt really care for one another,something we are both entitled to feel right? These ill feelings between us never ever resulted in me feeling any uncomfort or unwelcoming feeling from him. Once I decide to kick drugs and even after having behaved like an off the hook rude spun out crazy mess he was willing to be a reference for me on my resume the second I ask. Even text me the places he saw with a help wanted sign. Not to mention the fact that it is never acceptable for one of gods children to take the life of another, if it were why are there so many people on the Megan’s Law Web Site? You should be ashamed of yourselves his children dont deserve this there DADDY just got shot in the head in the middle of the night he was their Dad what is wrong with you people! RIP DAVE!

  • Shannon1981

    When did Queerty become the headquarters for the White Supremacists? Yeah I am glad the fucker is dead. He was a hate mongering bigot, and with the state the world is in now, one less bigot is great. I’m glad for his kids. Maybe they won’t grow up being racists.

  • Bianca

    @Shannon1981: Hypocrite. You are an idiot. He wasn’t FORCING ANYBODY TO LISTEN OR BELIEVE WHAT HE DID. TOO MANY PEOPLE DIE FOR THEIR BELIEFS, THIS MAN WAS MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD IN HIS HOUSE! GOD THIS IDS POINTLESS. TO ARGUE ABT WHY IT’S A DISGRACE FOR YOU PPL TO DISRESPECT AND ENJOY A HUMAN BEINGS MURDER…LETS JUST SAY U PEOPLE ARE A BUNCH OF JUDGMENTAL DISGUSTING LOWLIFE EXCUSES FOR HUMAN BEINGS AND DONT DESERVE TO ENJOY THE RIGHTS OF MY UNITED STATES. IDIOTIC DRIVEL FROM UNINTELLIGENT HATEFUL PEOPLE LIKE YOU IS RIDICULOUS. U CRY ABOUT OH ACCEPT ME EVN IF U DONT LIKE WHAT I BELIEVE IS RIGHT BUT OH EM GEE HE BELIEVED IN A ONE TRUE RACE SO HE WAS TRASH? U PPL ARE FRAUDS. THE ACCEPTANCE RULE DOESN’T APPLY ONLY TO GAYS DEMANDING TO FIT IN WHERE THEY DONT. SOO NOW EVERY TIME A GAY PERSON DIES THATS ALL ILL SEE. ONE LESS FAG PIECE OF SCUM WASTE OF FLSH ON THE EARTH! YAY! OH REJOICE! THAT FAG WASN’T A HUMAN, ONLY GAY SO WOOHOOBE HAPPY THEY WERE MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD OR BEAT TO DEATH. :) oh and that was sarcasm for you slow ones..by which I mean all of u. nightynite:)

  • Bianca

    It isnt about whether he was racist or whatevr. Oh and @thematics, it would have been ironic for someone like u to have commited the crime. A man is dead. A family is devastated. More children growing up without a father. Another act of violence. These are the things that should matter. Its funny how u mention the state of the world at the moment, yet say ur happy someone was murdered.

  • Mike in Asheville

    Oh dear Bianca, you are quite the white-supremacist apologist aren’t you? In that case, Kapo, google that term to see how you are so like those of the past. Though I suspect you are just another supremacist poser trying to grow your vile bigotry.

    Oh, and I’m still very glad that the wicked bigot Lynch is DEAD; and now he can’t, at least personally, continue polluting his own children and children everywhere with his very vile stupidity.

    So go troll on the American Front web-site; they even have a separate section for idiot women followers so you’ll fit right in.

  • Bianca

    Oh david, you are so very loved and missed. Ur wonderful personality and unselfish nature will be missed dearly. and in response to the ignorant people on this page, I can’t wait until someone you love and care about is disrespected in such a disgusting manner.

  • Someone

    I’m sure the women he raped are glad he’s gone.

  • Someone

    In Lynch’s case, his children growing up without a father is a good thing – especially the unborn who won’t be tainted by his delusional propaganda. His death means one less rapist in the world. His “close friend” had a huge meth lab in his garage – how do you think they get their funding? Lynch was not a good man, and he was responsible for various cowardly assaults. That anyone thinks otherwise is proof of the charismatic nature of hateful fascists like Hitler, Stalin, and David Lynch.

    Bianca does in fact mean “white”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bianca

  • Someone

    From the AF website:

    “We do not pollute our bodies with drugs or excessive drinking, as we attempt to live as man was intended with pure mind, body, and race.”

    Yet that one guy had a huge meth lab.
    lololol Fucking hypocrites. Fucking jokes.

  • Kev C

    Why is Bianca here and not at the NYDaily News which has 100s of disrespectful comments?

    Maybe because David was killed by his friend who tattooed him.

    Tattoo’d every inch of his body.

    with skinheady tattoos

    on his back side,

    and below his naval,

    and on his thighs,

    inking through the night,

    gently,

    intimately.

  • Someone

    Well Bianca sure shut the fuck up fast.

  • The One

    Okay, first off may David Lynch rest in peace. I wish his lady friend a speedy recovery, and his kids will be in my prayers. Second off, all of you who wanna talk shit can shut the fuck up. It is very clear you know nothing about what David was trying to accomplish. I for one have been awakened to what is really going on in America. I grew up in Sacramento, Citrus heights to be exact. I have the deepest sympathy and condolences to his family and close friends.

  • Mike in Asheville

    @The One: Go troll on the KKK and Aryn Nation web-sites ASSHOLE!

  • AFsupporter

    You assholes. Everyone is a racist! Personally I think Dave Lynch is great. RIP x

  • Anonymous

    I knew Dave. I wonder how the women he’s raped and the people he beat up over meth would respond to the statement “Dave is a wonderful person who never hurt anybody.”
