Neo-Nazi Steven Wiegand of Micetrap Distribution Exposed

Updated 3/18/2015: WordPress can go screw. Put the original pictures back.

Update 2/7/20015: Despite claims that us outing him was “advertising” his business and leading to “booming sales,” (lol) Wiegand has been complaining to WordPress repeatedly about this article.  First he tried to file a copy write complaint about using pictures from his website but WordPress decided this was fair use.  Then he complained that posting the license plates of cars observed parked at his home violated the site’s terms of service about posting personal information, despite plate number not being mentioned in said terms.  This time WordPress caved so the license plate numbers have been removed.

UPDATED 2/4/2015: We somehow forgot to mention Wiegand’s brief and tumultuous affair with The National Alliance. A review of his rogue’s gallery entry at One People’s Project reminded us and an addition has been made.

Note: This is part of a regular feature exposing Neo-Nazis in our area. Check back for updates and info on more scum.

Steven Wiegand is a Neo-Nazi, apparently. According to a source who went to school with him, Wiegand grew up in nearby Pennsauken, NJ.  He has run a Neo-Nazi music label and distro called Micetrap Distributions, LLC. since 1994. Micetrap distributes a huge catalog of Neo-Nazi music, clothing and literature.

Some of the literature being sold on Micetrap, including writings by murderer and terrorist David Lane.

Some of the musical releases Wiegand has been selling for the past 20+ years include:

“Too White For You” and “Racially Motivated Violence” by Angry Aryans
“Freezer Full Of Nigger Heads” by Grinded Nig
“The White Race Will Prevail” by Race War
“Keep The Hate Alive” by Racist Redneck Rebels
“Bulldozer of Semitic Destruction” by Warbutcher
and, who could forget the classic “Der Ewige Jude” by Volkszorn
The entire Skrewdriver discography

Steve Wiegand makes a living selling this shit to teenagers.

The label has always been registered to a P.O. Box in Maple Shade, NJ, right over the Ben Franklin Bridge from Philly.  Recently, Wiegand booked a show by Atlantic City “Skinheads” band Aggravated Assualt at an Outlaws Biker clubhouse in North Philly.   Eventually, the show drew so much negative attention that it was cancelled. So Wiegand is a Nazi and should be treated like one if encountered. Simple enough.

However, after a little research Wiegand’s history is anything but simple.

Wiegand has been hanging around the Atlantic City “Skinheads” since he first became a bonehead, and retains close ties with the group and it’s leader Warren Mieckle, but it is still unclear if he has ever been a member. Wiegand’s first known WP crew affiliation was with a group known as the White Victory Skins (WVS), a short-live South Jersey bonehead crew. According to several sources formerly and currently imbedded in the WN movement,  Wiegand turned state’s evidence and provided video to the Pemberton, NJ Borough court showing WVS’ leader, Dennis Lurty, JR. possessing a gun as a convicted felon. As a result, for the past 15 years very few people in the “White Nationalist” movement have wanted anything to do with Wiegand.  Since that incident, Weigand has also drawn heat from certain sectors of the WP/WN scene for printing and selling designs that he didn’t create on t-shirts: several belonging to WP band The Blue Eyed Devils and a “S.H.A.R.P. Shooter” T-shirt originally designed by the Keystone State “Skinheads.” S.H.A.R.P. stands for “Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice,” a.k.a. known as real skinheads.

Wiegand is also involved in performing on, producing and printing Neo-Nazi records.  His website advertises for Racist and Nazi bands to contact him or mail him demos.  He offers to distribute their work “to every interested record label and zine in the world.”

…(Wiegand) joined the National Alliance in January, 2000, but by the end of the year, a message from Billy Roper listed Micetrap Distribution and Steve Wiegland as “enemies” of National Alliance. This may stem from the accusation that Micetrap sent a computer virus to NA headquarters.” (Rogue’s Gallery Entry).

In 2004 Wiegand was fired from his job managing a gas station in Marlton, NJ after 2 newspapers wrote articles about him moving Micetrap to Maple Shade. Wiegand sued the company and in court documents claimed to not be a a Neo-Nazi, but that he found the racist, sexist, homophobic and pro-nazi material to be “funny.”  Though Wiegand was forced to admit on the stand that material on his site identified Adolph Hitler as a god and had numerous references to murdering just about everyone but him and his fellow Nazis.

During his deposition for the lawsuit, Wiegand was asked why he posed for this picture. His response was"no reason."  If you're going to be the kind of shit stain that profits off mass murder, at least don't be a coward about it too.

Wiegand owns and lives at 55 Grant Avenue in Cherry Hill, NJ.

In addition to the SUV, Wiegand or someone else living at the house drive a Black Mustang and a Black Sedan.

As deplorable as it is to be an earnest Nazi, Wiegand is something even worse. He is a Nazi: for him to suggest anything else is laughable; but he is also a profiteer, police informant and two-faced hypocrite. One only needs to glance at his deposition from the aforementioned lawsuit to see that he is incapable of owning up to his affiliations and activities. He, like ACS and so many other Fascists and Crypto-Fascists these days, hides behind humor and irony instead of owning up to being part of that lineage.  But whether he thinks it’s funny or not is actually really irrelevant.

Wiegand has profited for over 2 decades by spreading some of the most vile and bigoted music and literature in the world.   Often, the people he sells it to are young and very impressionable to the message of racist, sexist and homophobic violence that permeates everything Micetrap releases.  People like Christopher Crumb, who murdered a disabled elderly black man in an unprovoked and random attack in Atlantic City in order to try and impress his buddies in the Atlantic City “Skinheads.”  People like Walter Dille, an Atlantic City “Skinheads” member who killed a black woman in a botched carjacking. People like Michel Gunnar and Kyle Powell who were convicted of hate crime charges for a random and unprovoked attack on two Egyptian men in East Windsor in 2011 alongside ACS member Chris Ising.  We’re willing to bet that, more often than not, the Nazis involved in these and thousands of similar murders and assaults have ordered something from Micetrap records at some point in their lives.

Those albums and books and videos encouraged these acts. Wiegand not only distributes them, but he produces more. He (through Micetrap) glorifies imprisoned Nazi murders as heroes and POW’s.  He has spread a message of extermination of Jews, people of color, Anti-Racists and feminists. Wiegand may never have physically harmed anyone, but he has blood on his hands.

Very few individuals we’ve encountered in Neo-Nazi and White Power movements has done so much damage without ever being held accountable. Neo-Nazi label Resistance Records at it’s peak involved hundreds of Nazis working together all over the U.S. and Canada.  Whereas, as far as anyone can tell Micetrap is solely Wiegand’s venture.  Judging by his window decal and Micetrap logo tattoo, one he is proud of.

party is over, fucker

party is over, fucker

We intend to shut down Micetrap Distributions for good.  We are calling on Antifascists everywhere to help us.  Making money for 20+ years by helping poison the young and confused into violent Fascists and Nazis is unforgivable.  We can’t go back in time but we can take steps to fight back today.

If you have more information on Steven Wiegand or Micetrap Distributions, or want to get involved in helping shut them down, we can be reached at Phillyantifascists@gmail.com.

Be seeing you.

UPDATED: White Power Show Booked in North Philly For January 10th CANCELLED

sadhitler

Updated 1/8/2015: We at Antifa Philadelphia are happy to announce that the show has been cancelled. Apparently the attention drawn to the show by Antifascists was picked up on by several local media outlets, which led to the Mayor Nutter’s office calling the Outlaws directly and asking them to cancel the show, citing safety concerns.

You might notice from the City Paper article linked above that the show’s organizer, Steven Weigand, disassociated himself from the event claiming it appeared to him “to have been made by the Communist blogs or Daryl[e] Lamont Jenkins.”

Fortunately, Atlantic City “Skinheads” member Chris Arlan (who posts as ‘AC Skin’ on Stormfront) never misses an opportunity to promote a show for his buddy Warren:

Maybe Arlan was in on the OPP conspiracy to defame Wiegand, who denies booking the show but still claims his free speech was impeded on when people announced that it had been booked, but we doubt it.

Soon after we posted our alert, Arlan was back on Stormfront:

racially “conscience?”

Thank you to who helped spread the word when we heard about this show short-notice, and the individuals and groups who came forward and offered to help organize a response.

To the boneheads we know are reading this right now, who made snide comments when we posted the alert claiming the show would “never be cancelled:” eat shit. It took less than 48 hours from Antifascists finding out about the show until the venue canceled. Philly is done with ACS. Done with KSS. Done with Micetrap, Blood and Honour, KKK and all the rest. Quit the shit and act right or get/stay the fuck out.

Updated 1/5/2015: Fixed spelling on Steve Wiegand’s name.tumblr_nhl5y23V5D1sy0xpro1_1280

Note: thanks to Wobbly Dash for the concise list of Aggravated Assault and Micetrap Distribution’s releases.

According to a flyer circulating on social media, Atlantic City “Skinheads” (ACS) band Aggravated Assault is scheduled to play a show at the Outlaws Biker Gang clubhouse at 2103 E. Somerset Street in Philly on January 10th.

Aggravated Assault dates back to the late 1980’s. It’s members are all ACS with strong ties to the Eastern Hammerskins and NJ Prison Skins.  It is fronted by Warren Meickle, the de-facto head of ACS. That is, since their founder Bryan Bradley was killed by a bolt of lightning while working on the construction site of the short-lived Revel Casino in Atlantic City in 2011. Meickle also fronts a band called Chaos 88 (88 = HH = Heil Hitler)

Meickle, their Guitarist Scott Hudson, and the rest of the band are are undiluted Nazis and White Supremacists. Meickle even sports a portrait of Hitler on his stomach set against a giant flaming Swastika. Some of their songs include:

“Kill A Red”
“The Eternal Jew”
“Get Out”
“Fetch The Rope”
“Sieg Heil”
“Border Patrol”
“Filthy Whore”
“Skin For Life”
“Hammer Joe” (a reference to dead Hammerskin Joe Rowan)
“Mud Control” (“Mud People” is a slur popular among Nazis to describe people of color. It is based in the Christian Identity doctrine that claims god made non-whites from mud.)

Here is an old video of Aggravated Assault that was part of a compilation being distributed by European Boneheads in the 90s. It includes live footage as well as the band members being all-too-clear about their Racist Nazi Fascist views.

The show is being promoted by Micetrap Distribution, LLC, which is run out of Maple Shade, NJ by a longtime Neo-Nazi named Steve Wiegand.

Some of Micetrap’s releases have included:

“Too White For You” and “Racially Motivated Violence” by Angry Aryans
“Freezer Full Of Nigger Heads” by Grinded Nig
“The White Race Will Prevail” by Race War
“Keep The Hate Alive” by Racist Redneck Rebels
“Bulldozer of Semitic Destruction” by Warbutcher
and, who could forget the classic “Der Ewige Jude” by Volkszorn
as well as reprints of pretty much everything Skrewdriver

Wiegand has been around for years, recording and distributing Neo-Nazi music and merch since the early days of the internet.  He has a reputation as a profiteer making money off the White Nationalist movement by many people on both sides of the fence, and was at least for a time targeted by certain boneheads because he was distributing bootlegs of early shows by legendary Antifascist Oi band The Angelic Upstarts, thereby demonstrating his lack of real dedication to “the cause.”

The Outlaws Motorcycle Club dates back to the mid 1930’s with chapters all over the Country as well as in Britain and other nations. They are a 1%er club (a reference to the former President of the American Motorcyclist Association saying that “99% of Motorcyclists are law-abiding citizens”) that engages in a litany of illegal activities ranging from mail fraud and drug running to extortion and murder. According to Wikipedia, “On August 24, 2009, 15 members of the Outlaws Philadelphia chapter were arrested in connection with a methamphetamine ring. Those arrested included chapter president Thomas “The Boss” Zaroff, Jr., and Charles “The Panhead” Rees. According to Pennsylvania District Attorney Tom Corbett, the gang sold methamphetamine in Philadelphia… Pennsylvania and… New Jersey.”  However, the Outlaws seem most notorious for their violent conflicts with other MC’s, especially the Hell’s Angels.

The relationship between 1%er Motorcycle Clubs and Neo-Nazi crews like ACS or the Keystone State “Skinheads” (KSS) is varied and always in flux.  Most 1%er MC’s are all white and there is a prevalent culture of racism and white supremacy in many of them that is often hardened by prison and it’s racial segregation and animosity. This situation is fostered and made worse by the Guards and Prison Officials in order to keep the prisoners divided against each other.  The Outlaws, Pagans and Warlocks among other 1%er MC’s have former bonehead members, some of whom have risen to leadership positions.  That said, for many members of these clubs Fascist politics have little to no appeal.

There are those in the Fascist camp hostile to bikers and their lifestyle as well. When the Neo-Nazi Vinlanders Social Club (VSC) message board was hacked by Anonymous a few years back, Antifascists found a few messages between a couple Vinlanders, Ryan Broverone (formerly of NJ living in Arizona at the time of the message) and “Tommy” A.K.A. “Bull” from Florida, repeating an oft-heard complaint among “serious” White Supremacists about the biker gangs and their culture (notes and bold added by us):

Im still on good with the outlaws. Every now and then they ask me to publicly side with them, hang out at a big function or come back. I just tell them im on another path.

The ha (Hell’s Angels) is still pushing into forida. The warlocks are buddies with them. The pagans are here big time now. No one is happy with that. jody and our ex probate john boy are both patched warlocks. A couple of our old supporter guys are probates for them. The warlocks are weak motherfuckers. I stay good with them too, but they are a joke. They have numbers and will shoot. Thats why they stand up to the ols (Outlaws)

Fucking bullshit. Yea I know they are no joke. I knew of a few Pagans when I lived in Jersey and they were no joke. But the idea of honor escaped them lol. They are all junkies.

Ryan Broverone, Vinlanders and Blood and Honour member

These are not uncommon charges. A few years ago Aryan Nations head August Kreis attempted to start an exclusively Neo-Nazi biker gang but recruited an undercover FBI agent to run it and ended up getting a bunch of his friends arrested. It is rumored that one of those arrested in the sting is the son of an Outlaws MC member in Florida.

The Keystone State Skinheads (KSS) have made many statements in the past 10 years claiming to be virulently Anti-Drug, especially when that drug dealing is being done by White People to White People, as is commonly the case in biker meth rings.   KSS is also part of the Blood and Honour network, which counts Broverone and the rest of the Vinlanders as members. Yet Philadelphia KSS head A.J. Olsen is a friend of Meickle and a fan of Aggravated Assault who in all likelihood will be attending the show on the 10th. KSS has also booked several Aggravated Assault and Chaos 88 shows over the years so there will definitely be several of their members in attendance as well.

It is unknown how close the ties are between the Philly Outlaws MC and ACS, KSS and Micetrap Distribution.  We will post more information as we get it.We are asking our readers to help spread this information far and wide.
