Magnotta linked to white supremacist site

QMI Agency

He's been accused of being a murderer, a decapitator, a cannibal, a necrophilic and a kitten killer, and now a report has surfaced suggesting Luka Magnotta may be a white supremacist. If not, he certainly had some white supremacist fans.

Xtra!, Canada's gay and lesbian newspaper, describes a series of posts about Magnotta - the Toronto native accused of murdering, cannibalizing and dismembering Chinese national Jun Lin in Montreal - on a white supremacist forum.

On StormFront, described as a "white-nationalist" website, a user under the names reddragon1 and arcangel9 writes Magnotta's praises, but does so in a style similar to how Magnotta writes on his own site.

"The writer breaks suddenly into capitalization, demonstrates similarly poor grammar, links to Magnotta's website and photographs, and refers repeatedly to the 'slander' and 'bullying' he faced at the hands of animal rights activists," Xtra! reports.

Animal rights groups have long been hunting for the man - who now appears to be Magnotta - shown in numerous online videos killing kittens.

"(Magnotta) says he is not advocating killing different races, he simply does not want to communicate, live, work or associate with different races. The media is brainwashing all the youth of todays society that being multicultural is normal and we should all accept it," reads a September 2011 post from arcangel9.

On May 1, 2011, RedDragon1 wrote: "Magnotta has been forced to leave North America and relocate to Russia for his views on White Supremacy." Another site in August 2011 that appears to show Magnotta in Moscow.

He wrote that non-white residents of primarily white countries are "parasites," that he wishes "Jews should just get lost" and that Chinese people should "get their own countries."

The victim in the grisly Montreal killing has been identified as a Chinese student at Concordia University.

StormFront users have since turned their bigotry on Magnotta, calling him gay slurs and implying his alleged crimes are connected to his sexual orientation.

"Typical homosexual behaviour," writes one man from Columbia Falls, MT, in a post titled in a post called, "Gay porn star suspect in body parts in mail to Parliament case in Canada,"

Magnotta, while romantically linked to a number of women, was a gay porn actor and had stripped at a gay bar.
