It's Dylan "Storm" Roof. Is that "Storm" as in "Stormfront", the racist white power website?

This website promotes "lone wolf" attacks.

Stormfront wiki: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stormfront_(website)

Stormfront presents itself as engaged in a struggle for unity, identifying culture, speech and free association as its core concerns,[39] though members of Stormfront are especially passionate about racial purity.[47] It promotes a lone wolf mentality, linking to white nationalist theorist Louis Beam's influential work on leaderless resistance and offering a sympathetic assessment of Benjamin Nathaniel Smith, a white supremacist who committed suicide after a racially-motivated killing spree in June 1999

2. That is unknown at this time. Having known people naming their kids for nature things

Rayne, Raine, Tulip, Stormy, etc etc etc, it could be just one of those names also.

3. That occurred to me as well

I decided to wait until information emerged about his upbringing before making that suggestion openly, however. I do have the suspicion that he was reared in a racist environment.

4. Definitely a possibility. The storm meme has been a thing in white supremacist circles for decades.

These days, you see quite a few of them hanging out on Reddit, in subreddits like r/coontown.

5. This article from last year sheds some light on the matter

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/apr/18/hate-crime-murders-website-stormfront-report

"People charged with the murders of almost 100 people can be linked to a single far-right website, according to a new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

"The White Nationalist web forum Stormfront.org says it promotes values of “the embattled white minority,” and its users include Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in a 2011 massacre in Norway, and Wade Michael Page, who shot and killed six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012."

7. Stormfront's website should be seized by the government.

If Stormfront promotes "lone wolf" attacks and is linked to Breivik and Page, then Homeland Security and ICE should consider seizing Stormfront's domain name and server.
