Podblanc is a white supremacist[2] video sharing website. Founder Craig Cobb designed it as an alternative to YouTube, which Cobb calls "Jew Tube" due to its policy of banning racist and anti-Semitic content.[2]

Content

Cobb made a video tribute to Benjamin Nathaniel Smith, a spree killer whom he considers a hero.[2] The most popular video on the site depicts Russian neo-Nazis beheading and shooting Asian immigrants. Videos depicting random attacks on Jews and nonwhites are frequently posted, and the site glorifies such violence. [3]

Keith Luke

Keith Luke, of Brockton, Massachusetts, was a Podblanc user who, in 2009 at the age of 22, allegedly shot to death two Cape Verdean immigrants and attempted to murder a third, whom he also raped.[4] He had planned to "kill as many nonwhites as possible" and finish off the killing spree at a synagogue's bingo night. Luke's lawyer hired nationally-known psychiatrist Keith Ablow to conduct a mental health evaluation, which led to Luke assaulting Ablow. In 2013 he was convicted and sentenced to two life sentences without parole. [5] Luke had told police that he developed his white supremacist views largely by reading internet site such as Podblanc. [3]
