About Alexander Ruedy Linder

Alex Ruedy Linder (born June 30, 1966) is the owner and operator of the Vanguard News Network (VNN), an antisemitic, white supremacist website which he launched in 2000. VNN is one of the most active white supremacist sites on the Internet, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Its motto is "No Jews. Just Right." Linder espouses numerous Nazi sentiments, among them that "the thing to be done about [the Jews] is to kill them, exterminate them, get rid of them. You don't argue or reason with a cockroach; you step on it."


According to the ADL, Linder has said he was raised an "upper-middle-class suburban kid". The ADL reports that he graduated with a bachelor's degree from Pomona College in Claremont, California, in 1988, then worked as a researcher for CNN on the Evans & Novak political show, and then at The American Spectator.

Criminal history

On May 26, 2007, Linder organized what has been described as a "racially charged protest" linked to the Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom murder case in Knoxville, Tennessee that attracted 30 supporters, around 60 counterprotesters, and 300 law enforcement officers. Linder fought with police and was the only arrest. Linder was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, vandalism and assault on a police officer. He was placed on six months probation and ordered to pay restitution to the police officer he assaulted.

Political life

Linder is an ex-member of the National Alliance, a neo-Nazi, white-nationalist group. He left after deciding to allow criticism of the National Alliance to appear on the VNN forums.

The ADL claims that in January 2005, Linder announced his intention to set up the White Freedom Party, stating it was "America's first political party advocating Aryan interests and specifically naming the Jew as the agent of white genocide and greatest obstacle to our people's self-preservation as a distinct and protected people." It threatened to "WAGE NONSTOP WAR [sic] on the Jews, coloreds, and mainstream sellouts ...". Lacking financial backing, the "White Freedom Party" is currently dormant.

The Aryan Alternative

In 2004, Linder began publishing a tabloid newspaper called The Aryan Alternative. There have been four issues that have been published so far as of July 2010—the first issue was published in mid-2004. The most recent issue as of July 2010 (#4) was published in mid-2009. The newspaper is distributed for free, but donations for it are solicited online. In articles he has written for the The Aryan Alternative newspaper, Alex Linder claims that the Jews have been and are consciously engaged in a conspiracy that is implementing a systematic program of genocide to totally eradicate and exterminate the Aryan race.
