Neo-Nazi thrown out
By Abdul Turay 11 August 2009

An American neo-Nazi has failed in his attempt to remain in the country after a court rejected his asylum plea and branded him a racist and a public menace.

Craig Cobb, 57, founder and operator of the Podblanc website, a sort of YouTube for racists, emigrated to Estonia in 2005. Cobb planned to make Estonia the centre for his propaganda campaign to promote white nationalism.

Now it seems time is up for Cobb. He was put on trial August 2009 and banned from Estonia for a minimum of 10 years. Cobb was found guilty of endangering public security, public order, public safety, moral standards, and health. The court also found that he was promoting racism and was a racist.

Cobb has not yet been removed from the country, but is being detained.

“I have cash and an American passport and am expelled by Estonia, but they have me locked down here till 16 Sept if they want and I think I can get extensions every two months. One Khazarstan(sic) guy has been here a year,” Cobb wrote on his website.

The Office of Internal Affairs has been trying to deport Cobb since at least February 2007.

Cobb originally left the country on 2 June 2009 once it became clear the authorities were closing in on him. He went to Finland and applied for asylum the same day on the basis of his religious and political beliefs. Cobb is a member of the creativity movement, a white nationalist quasi-religion. Finland rejected his asylum claim and he was sent back to Estonia under the terms of the Dublin convention whereby a failed asylum-seeker should be returned to the last safe country they were in.

According to his website Cobb now plans to go to Canada which he calls “Israel North,” from there he plans to go to another European country like Serbia or Bosnia.

Cobb first came to public attention in 2006 when he bought a run-down house near Rapla

“Nigger-hater makes a centre in woods near Rapla,” Eesti Express wrote at the time.

Cobb had said that countries like the USA And the UK were “disgusting sewers” beyond redemption because of their large ethnic minority populations.

Prior to coming to the Estonia Craig Cobb had come to attention in the USA when he put the home address of a federal judge on a white nationalist website. The judge's husband and mother were subsequently murdered at that address.

Many of the videos of the Cobb's Podblanc site depict men, women and even small children being viciously beaten by skinhead thugs, mostly in Russia.

Tallinn's unlikely twin By Abdul Turay First published November 2008 The idea behind twinning is that two vaguely similar cities exchange cultural links for their mutual benefit. Warsaw is twinned with Coventry – both cities were flattened by the Luftwaffe, after all. Tartu, the famous Estonian university town, is twined with Uppsala which is the home to the oldest university in Scandinavia. And Tallinn… Tallinn is twinned with Dartford. Come again, Dartford! For those of you who don’t know Britain well, Dartford is a dull dormitory suburb on the back end of London. Dartford is in the county of Kent, the so-called “garden of England”. Technically it is both a town and a borough , but it is not a city since it doesn’t have a Royal charter to call itself that. Say the word “Dartford” to most Britons, and they will answer back “tunnel”. The Dartford crossing is both a tunnel and a bridge. It links up Kent with London both above and below the river Thames. When City Paper called up the
Black men, Estonian women: the truth By Abdul Turay Published Postimees 11 November 2009 Well that got your attention; the headline I mean. Any story on this subject, the technical term is miscegenation, is bound to get punters. The yellow media, women's magazines and reality TV shows are obsessed with the subject. Not a month goes by without some publication writing about it. Anne and Style, for example, recently ran a long feature about mixed couples. Most of these stories are muddle-headed and wrong. There's paranoia in this country that there is an army of dark-skinned men form Turkey, the tropics, some place south, who are going to make off with the nation's women. It's never going to happen. I'll explain why in a minute. Seriously, I think there are more important things to think about and worry about. I worry about feeding my family. I worry about other people being able to feed their families, so I write about politics and economics. But the p
A black president for a white nation By Abdul Turay First published Postimees 11 November 2008 A few months ago I was having dinner with an American journalist friend visiting from New York. I joked to her that it seemed like there are only five black people in Estonia.... and two of them are drug dealers. Now the most powerful man on the planet is a black man. What does this mean for Estonia, one of the whitest nation's on Earth? Though this US election was fought on the issues, not on race, it was pretty clear once Obama was elected the huge historical significant of event would be celebrated. Some people may think President-elect Obama’s race doesn’t matter. Some even believe he isn’t really black. After all the president-elect’s mother was white and he was raised by his white grandparents. Those people are wrong. Obama is really black and it really does matter. Most black people everywhere see Obama's election as a personal victory for them. Ninety five per cent of Afri
