Stormfront for all things Apple?

Of course, the name "Stormfront" doesn't mean a lot to a lot of people. But to internet buffs, esp. ones who dig politics, it means first of all "a white nationalist and supremacist neo-Nazi Internet forum...". A nasty bunch of Nazis and their sympathizers. And of course, they have a branch in UK. You can establish all of the above by googling, we don't provide links to such places here.

The more amazing was to discover (via a comment by Jams) that there is a chain of Apple shops in UK that has chosen that name - yes, Stormfront.

Strange choice, you would agree. There is no hint on their site about the history of that moniker.

As Jams rightly wonders:

I hope there are no adverts saying "Get your i-pods and the Turner Diaries here..."
I wonder, too, what title their CEO carries and what is this all about anyhow?

Anyone in the know is welcome to comment.

Honestly? Grow up and please get over yourselves.

It's a cool name.....stop trying to make it about Judaism.

That is all.

Stormfront is just about Judaism? Shows what kind of morons inhabit the Internet...

Oh, it comes from Montreal. Sorry, I was too rough on you. Relax.

There are a lot of things called Stormfront, look that up. I thought Stormfront was about white civil rights. Do you have a problem with white having free speech? You sure seem to love your free speech...

"Stormfront was about white civil rights..."

Yeah, sure. Like, for instance, Hitler was about the right of people adorning their clothes with swastika and Pol Pot was for advanced rice-growing.

Sowhat, ijit?
