neo-nazi[edit]

He is definitely a neo-nazi. Here is video proof. http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=EA9F447254EC61A5 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.39.212.101 (talk) 13:57, 3 March 2008 (UTC)


Appearing on a racist talk-show does not make one racist. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.212.194.99 (talk) 16:55, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Yeah but making dozens of other pro-fascist, racist, anti-semitic statments over the years does. 76.105.183.62 (talk) 11:13, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Boyd Rice has not made ANY 'anti-semitic' statements 'over the years'. Not one. Name a single instance. You won't be able to. Neither has Rice made 'dozens' of pro-fascist or 'racist' statements. He has only ever spoken in favour of a philosophy of 'realism' or sometimes 'social Darwinism'. Your claims are unsubstantiated bullshit. 86.164.239.138 (talk) 00:31, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

Just becaus he believes in fascistism, raceism, and the pruity of the human race dose not make him a neo-nazi it makes him social darwinist —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.195.232.66 (talk) 20:18, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Where are these racist/anti-Semitic statements? In that YouTube video he purposely does not make any racist comments. He only agrees that electronic music appears to generally be more appealing to whites. The host consistently tries to get racial comments from Rice, but he never makes any. Rice has never targeted ethnic groups. While he did appear on a racist television show, he has often consciously done things to create controversy from nothing. He has appeared in a photograph with a neo-Nazi but has always adamantly stated he is not a Nazi, and does not agree with the Nazi ideology. He and his ideologies are unpopular in white supremacist circles. He believes in a sort of fascism that is associated with Satanism; that the laws of nature do not allow equality and the strong will rule. He has stated that he does not follow any form of political fascism.

You are taking a section of what he has done as part of his beliefs about the social system and projected that as his ideology. By that same logic you could say that he is a vegetarian because he told authorities he was campaigning for animal rights following the Ford incident. The placement of your information within the article was not only redundant of what was stated above, but also disrupts the neutrality by portraying Rice as racist by intentionally placing the information after Boyd's defense statement, simply because he appeared on a racist talk show as part of his ideology of breaking convention to produce an effect. --Nihilcognition (talk) 00:49, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Even if he is a fascist or a neo-Nazi...so what? What's the big deal? It is a freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Better to be a Nazi than a commi. Norum (talk) 11:44, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Kinship with LaVey[edit]

Didn't he also have some form of ideological "kinship" with 'Marilyn Manson/Brian Warner'? Nagelfar 16:56, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Rice's kinship with Marilyn Manson is well documented on his website, www.boydrice.com/. Manson has admitted Rice was, along with LaVey, a role model for him while growing up. Rice and Manson spoke frequently to eachother on the phone, however, after Manson's rise to fame, they speak to eachother much less frequently. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 132.33.132.19 (talkcontribs)

Then this is notable enough that it should be incorporated into the article. Nagelfar (talk) 20:35, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

references[edit]

this is a really nice article. it would be improved by properly citing references within the main text,though. i've added one, but attaching some of the specific references to specific passages of text within the article would really help make it a terrific article. --Kaini 02:50, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Edmund Rice (1638)[edit]

Is he of the well attested known to be pervasive Rice line of Edmund Rice? 4.242.174.79 (talk) 14:03, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

There are a couple of means for Mr. Boyd Rice to find out links with Edmund Rice of Sudbury and Marlborough. First he could take his genealogical information about his ascendants (father, grandfather, great grandfather, etc.) and cross reference them with the genealogical database maintained by the Edmund Rice (1638)Association [[1]]. Additionally, he could become part of the Rice Family Tree molecular genealogy project and compare his results with the reconstructed Edmund Rice haplotype presented in the Wiki page for Edmund Rice (1638). But, Mr. Rice should be aware that there are some 20 distinct Rice Family lines already identified by molecular methods [[2]], and the Y-DNA testing could possibly pinpoint exactly which of the twenty he belongs.

Entertaining, yes - but just a wee bit on the pretentious side[edit]

"he emphasized the consensus nature of reality and the havoc that can be wreaked by refusing to play by the collective rules that dictate most people's perception of the external world"

How 'bout we try this instead : "It's fun to fuck with people".

Controversy[edit]

Since the subject is admittedly controversial, i would strongly recommend that any unsourced statements be removed, esp. in regards to his alleged nazism. saying he is friends with someone jewish, without a source, is foolish here. we arent here to defend him, and anyone who knows the history of antisemitism knows that "some of my best friends are jewish" is not an argument that someone isnt antisemitic. We should not be interested in proving either way, we should only be interested in finding notable sources that say something meaningful about the subject. I especially dont like the massive quote from Rice, which is unsourced and may be considered a copyright violation even if sourced.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 16:09, 15 February 2011 (UTC)


I have removed the unsourced and possibly not even accurate quote towards the middle, and fixed some of the sources, as well as adding two extra sources not previously there. Hopefully this helps raise the quality. Twarwick666 (talk) 16:51, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
