Tom Metzger was born upon April 9, 1938, in Warsaw, Indiana, to working-class parents. He rose to infamy in the USA as a white supremacist, leader of various far-right companies, and an one-time candidate for political office.

Metzger spent his early years in a rural atmosphere, however his family members later on relocated to Southern California when he was a teenager. Upon college graduation from secondary school, he operated in the electronics market while also attending college.

In the 1960s, Metzger grew increasingly associated with reactionary politics. He signed up with the anti-communist John Birch Society, yet soon found it also modest for his views. Discouraged by the culture's objection to dedicate to his racist suitables, Metzger sought extra extremist groups.

In the 1970s, he joined the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, the company headed by David Duke. Nevertheless, his association with the KKK was brief as interior disputes within the team brought about Metzger escaping and also developing his own faction, the California Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

Ultimately, Metzger disbanded the California Knights as well as developed the White Aryan Resistance (WAR) in the very early 1980s. Under Metzger's management, the WAR concentrated on spreading white supremacist propaganda, targeting young and flexible people.

He was understood for motivating terrible acts versus minorities, which inevitably resulted in a costly lawful battle for Metzger and also WAR. In 1990, Metzger and also his organization were condemned of inciting physical violence in a civil match filed by the household of an Ethiopian immigrant who was killed by skinheads with ties to the WAR. The $12.5 million judgment properly bankrupted Metzger and also the WAR, considerably lessening their influence.

Despite this setback, Metzger stayed an active number within white nationalist circles. He kept links with numerous extremist teams as well as people, such as the neo-Nazi National Alliance and the Holocaust-denying Institute for Historical Review. Metzger continued to spread his views through works, speeches, and also tv appearances on talk programs like Geraldo Rivera, Donahue, as well as Oprah Winfrey.
