The last days of the Anglo-Saxon Foundation?

The Anglo-Saxon Foundation has been one of the richest sources of material for this blog, so it is with mixed feelings that I report on the likelihood of its impending demise.

The ASF is run by a Manchester-based racist who calls himself Seaxan. Back in April, Seaxan made a lengthy post announcing his retirement, and the closure of the ASF if nobody steps in to save it. He also talks about setting up a private forum, but it seems most unlikely that this would attract anyone outside of the ASF's dwindling pool of regulars.

The post is not publicly viewable, but here's a screencap I dug up with my mole powers:

In fact, Seaxan has been pouring this kind of seemingly drunken rambling onto his forum for some time now, these two long-winded rants being typical of his posting style:

Seaxan is, to put it mildly, an odd chap. He seems to live in some sort of parallel universe, one in which the British police force is "gladly beating and arresting white racist Heathens for the sake of diversity" (er, got any evidence of this taking place, Seaxan?)

As the above screencaps demonstrate, Seaxan believes that he is fighting in a war. If this is the case, then he is practising the redoubtable martial technique which military experts refer to as "sitting around ranting about gay people":

Seaxan is also a graphic designer, although his attempts at setting up an English nationalist graphic design outfit never really took hold. A few years back he set up a sticker and t-shirt label called White Wulf Merchandise, but he had to abort this endeavour in late 2011 due to a lack of sales (good lord, who could possibly have predicted that...?)

Still from this video of the "English Folcmoot" in 2011. The video's description claims that White Wulf Merchandise had a stall at the event, and this would appear to be it: just compare the items on sale there with the t-shirt and sticker designs posted here.

And as I showed in my history of the ASF, Seaxan was involved with a similarly ill-fated graphic design website called Saxon North; this site was run by someone called Jamie. I do not have much information on Jamie, but in researching Englisc nationalist circles on Facebook I came across a Manchester-based nationalist graphic designer named Jamie Ashcroft:

A coincidence? A business partner of Seaxan's? Seaxan himself, maybe? Who knows?
Ah, the mysterious world of nationalist graphic design.

As a final note, Seaxan's domain is set to expire on 4 September. I wonder if anyone will put it to good use after that; perhaps I could buy it to use as a gay dating website.

Hmmm, the design will need bit of an overhaul, though...

Much better.
