Stormfront returned to the news in May 2003, when Fox News Channel host Bill O'Reilly reported on a racially segregated prom being held in Georgia and posted a poll on his website asking his viewers if they would send their own children to one.

This profile is derived from the descriptors Seth Stephens-Davidowitz published in the New York Times article “The Data of Hate.” Horrified, after what was most likely a terribly long amount of time going through and analyzing profiles – the world’s largest White Supremacist internet forum – Stephens-Davidowitz realized how incredibly (and scarily) normal White Supremacists are; that they do indeed, as he claims, live in the same universe as him and his friends and not in some dystopian parallel universe where he would like them to be.
Especially since, as Stephens-Davidowitz purports, the threat of Stormfront is real as “nearly 100 murders in the past five years” are linked to Stormfront members.
