An Oklahoma man apparently uttered Arabic words during an attack in which he allegedly severed a co-worker’s head, and had “some sort of infatuation with beheadings,” but the killing appeared to have more to do with the man’s suspension from his job than his recent conversion to Islam, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

Alton Nolen, 30, could face the death penalty after being charged with first-degree murder in the attack Thursday that authorities say appears to have been an act of revenge for a co-worker’s complaint that got him suspended.


Alton Nolen

The FBI also is investigating the attack, given Nolen’s interest in beheadings and a recent surge in Middle East violence.


Mashburn said the human resources department at the Vaughan Foods plant in Moore had suspended Nolen earlier Thursday after another co-worker, Traci Johnson, had complained she had had an altercation with Nolen “about him not liking white people.”

“It had more to do with race rather than trying to convert people,” Mashburn said. He said there was a “back and forth with Ms. Johnson and that led her to make a complaint to the HR department.”

Mashburn said that after being suspended, Nolen retrieved a knife at home and “returned to get revenge.” He had the knife in his shoe when he returned to the plant, according to a police affidavit.

Nolen walked into the plant’s administrative office in suburban Oklahoma City and came across Colleen Hufford, 54. According to the prosecutor, Nolen attacked Hufford from behind, severing her head, before turning his attention to Johnson, 43. Nolen “cut her across the throat and left side of her face,” and later told police he was attempting to behead her as well, the affidavit said. Johnson survived.

The company’s chief operating officer, Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff’s deputy in Oklahoma City, leveled a rifle at Nolen and fired, striking him once and stopping the attack.


Oklahoma prison records show Nolen was released from prison in March 2013 after serving two years of a six-year sentence on charges that included assaulting a police officer and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

Nolen received no misconduct reports during his incarceration at five separate facilities, Department of Corrections spokesman Jerry Massie said. Nolen completed his probation in March of this year.

    You can thank the left for creating a culture that allows and encourages free speech against Whites while discouraging Whites to offer any counter arguments due to diversity training and hyper sensitivity to the feeling of minorities.

    And the Whites who don’t buy into the “joy of diversity” propaganda usually stay silent for the sake of job security.

    • Sick of it

      And then end up robbed, raped, murdered, or all three. Silence is assent.

      • Periapsis

        If silence is assent, then responding to racially motivated attacks against us with deadly force is armed revolution. However, many whites are silent for another reason, and that is ANGER.

        • jezeuskrishna

          because many don’t know that the jew is behind all of this, AMREN even pretends they’re white, ask noel ignatiev.

    • Mack0

      It’s cultural marxism. The right uses the term a lot but when you really look into cultural marxism and its tenets you realize how pervasive the ideas are and how deeply they’ve penetrated the mind of western man.

    • Raymond Kidwell

      It’s not only white people but a lot of non-whites would object to it as well but will be attacked as uncle toms or something.

    • SFLBIB

      “You can thank the left for creating a culture that allows and encourages
      free speech against Whites while discouraging Whites to offer any
      counter arguments…”

      And under those rules, we’re supposed to have a “dialog” about race.

  • MekongDelta69

    Even the so-called ‘conservative’ talking-heads on radio have been going on and on about radical mooz-lims for some time now, but they almost never go on and on about everyday blacks.

    Nobody wants to be first in the pool to see if there’s any water in it, or they’ll hit the concrete bottom first…

    • bilderbuster

      And while going on and on about radical Mooz-lims they fail to mention that practically all Mooz-lims whether radical or not are non-White and therefore impossible to assimilate either culturally or racially.

      • Sick of it

        There are white muslims. Most particularly CONVERTS. Liberal converts.

        • bilderbuster

          Cat Stevens lol!
          You can throw in some Bosnians and Kosovoans(?) too.

          • Sick of it

            Kosovar Albanians. You could include quite a few Turks, as not everyone called a Turk is ethnically Turkish.

    • ElComadreja

      They gloss over the Black Muslims/Nation of Islam as if it didn’t exist. They’ve been seriously overlooked going all the way back to the 60’s and the Zebra killings.

  • 1stworlder

    At least one lame stream media outlet is honest. Why do they hate us when they live better on welfare than the top 1% of natives of their homeland?

    • Sick of it

      They get more money on welfare programs than many workers high up in management.

    • R L Buds

      Not only do they live better they are also treated better. Why is it that this guy gets out after 2 years of a 6 year sentence, then these idiots GIVE him a job? They do hate us even as we feed and clothe them with our money. It makes me sick seeing them living better than people who actually work for a living then they DEMAND more, WTF?

  • SouthernReality

    Certainly the racial aspect is valid but it’s important to realize in this case it’s only being brought into the situation to de-emphasize the second great danger in the U.S. today…. Islam. The combination of ingrained white hatred mixed with a theology that fuels the dim-witted fires is quite dangerous. It’s interesting that the third rail of ‘YT hatred’ is being used as a distraction to protect the most recent diversity snowflakes! This must really chap the hides of the NAACP!
    The blacks are certainly attracted by the violent nature of the teachings, the mystical facet of ‘being an insider’, and the most important point…. wearing sheets like the KKK and getting funny hats. It’s like being in a HBC band without having to pretend to go to college!!
    All that said, though, please, please let it boil to a head and let’s get down to the business of cleaning up our country.

      The prosecutor is a worm.

      • A Freespeechzone

        Islam is a danger to all who do not subscribe to their hatred–yet our government, courts and PC media refuse to call this demanding, dangerous, sick and violent cult out.

        Notice the deafening silence of outrage from the likes of CAIR and ‘moderate’ muslims? For that matter, not a peep from Obama or the Congress.

        it will take a large backlash of Patriots to force islam to behave–or be destroyed; they promise to destroy us. No middle ground

        • ElComadreja

          Destroying them is the only option.

        • Sick of it

          Islam is so dangerous it’s adherents murder one another at the drop of a hat as well. See Islamic History.

    • Sparky

      By far, the greatest physical threat to whites are blacks. Multiple thousands of whites have been murdered by blacks since the civil rights act of the sixties.

      • Dwight

        Few whites were harmed at the hands of blacks when Mr. Crow was still at large.

        • Ringo Lennon

          Bring this bird back!

      • Ringo Lennon

        I believe blacks and Hispanics will unite when a critical mass is reached to try to harm whites. Whites will have no option except to fight. Hispanics also hate whites. As for all the anti white violence lately? As a man once said “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”

  • John Smith

    This black-on-white beheading should be the #1 story everywhere.

    But the filthy anti-white media creatures in our anti-white media cabal are again working their magic.

    We have so many problems that could be solved within a few months if it wasn’t for this anti-white media cabal.

    I know this sounds so conspiratorial, but hey, it’s the f****** truth.

    All the problems we face (decades in the making) would have been virtually eliminated when they were just beginning to surface – if it wasn’t for this anti-white media cabal.

    • Sparky

      True. The media is a huge problem for white folks. We don’t have to go bonkers with conspiracy theories either. It’s a certified fact.

      • Kathy M

        Sadly, whites don’t have the gumption to start their own television network geared specifically toward white interests. Instead, they would rather complain about what we have now.

        • dd121

          The leftist government/bureaucracy would find a way to shut it down.

          • baldowl

            True. Our cause, if it’s to be successful, will call for a number of martyrs.

          • edwin karninsky

            They would be forced to sell the station at a loss, like the Clippers.

        • KyraNelson

          I was wondering – what about public access TV?

          • dd121

            All of it is very left wing.

          • KyraNelson

            I don’t mean so called “Public Television.” I mean local community access TV.

    • gemjunior

      The filthy creatures in our anti-white media cabal? Do you mean the ones who own our media and own every other effective means of mass dispersal of information – the ones who are not allowed to be named? Those who cannot be criticized?

      • baldowl

        The ones Archie Bunker referred to as “that tribe?”

      • KyraNelson

        Please don’t paint a nation of 12 million souls with the same brush. There is quite a diversity of opinion among us. Pardon the pun.

    • SFLBIB

      Don’t sell academia short. They play a major role.

  • dd121

    The leftist msm never lets black on white crime have a racial motivation. Neither do they let Muslim attacks be about Islam, instead it’s “workplace violence”. Who do they think they’re kidding.

  • Ringo Lennon

    When it is an open and shut case like this is, justice should be swift. This violent negro should be put down inside of a week.

  • Mack0

    A simple case of workplace violence. Nothing to see here.

  • Augustus3709

    He didn’t like White people but made an exception by resorting to using a knife which was produced through metallurgy.

    See how this backfires? Don’t share your charity, don’t share your technology with people who will use it to hurt you. Even if you “sell” it to them. Profit cannot sacrifice the future.

    • Actually I’m pretty sure some black Africans did master the art of metallurgy. It wasn’t foreign to them. But he probably did drive a car, use a telephone, log onto a computer, use Western medicine etc. etc.

      • propagandaoftruth

        Those with contact with Whiter civilizations.

        Islam helped them a lot, providing an evil, disciplining, simple, violent faith. And some advanced tech.

          What’s that about SC?

          • propagandaoftruth

            We have a compound of self proclaimed black African Jews somewhere in the low country. You can take a tour, watch them do stuff, buy something.

            My pal recently married a lovely Yankee transplant, experiencing the wonders of diversity for the first time. Among the standard tourist sites, he took her to this great and very authentic black Jew made up thing.

            Oh hey. These aren’t the ones who claim to be Jews.

            Sorry Reuben. Emily Litella moment there…

            Still Kind of funny. They’re “Yorubas”.


            Warning – turn down volume before hitting the link. Trust me on this.

          • Diana Moon Glampers

            Astounding. I have a hard time imagining most locals knowing that exists, let alone including it on a low country visit list… seems like a non-realist would do the authentic gullah/slave trade spots? A realist tourist spot? Marley Lion’s parking space, maybe.

  • gemjunior

    She had the sense not to allow him to spew his anti-white hatred and he went back and murdered her. This is another example of a white girl who bled a lot – to death actually – and it won’t even be a blip on the radar. This type of behavior will just snowball and when whites try to put their head in a hole in the ground they will find their is no more room left and they will have to face up to it. And only then will we be able to mount a resistance. Let’s hope their are enough of us left.

  • Raymond Kidwell

    I say Obama should give him the medal of honour and encourage more beheadings of whites. We need to keep consistent with our radical leanings. Muslims only kill people because of white racism. Black people only do crimes because of white racism. I say support radical marxism to speed up the collapse so we can rebuild afterwards. I just need to find a good hole I can crawl under while society implodes

  • IstvanIN

    I’ve been waiting for word that someone used the “N” word and, therefore, the alleged beheader was justified.

    • Ringo Lennon

      Names can never justify violence. Screw liberals. On the other hand, however, someone taking your children and money?

  • John R

    Yeah, and the media don’t mind mentioning his conversion to Islam as though that were the reason. Of course, let us focus on Islam in this case, because it would be more embarrassing for liberals to focus on that even bigger taboo: Race.

  • OhWow

    1. They always have a rap sheet…somehow these criminals are ALWAYS let off easy back into the public and even holding JOBS.

    2. Race was a factor. Cue the silence because it’s black on white.

    3. Imagine a white man beheading a black woman with rumblings that it was racial and he did not like black people?

    It might set a new record for the length and amount of media coverage.

    • Getting even a McJob after a felony conviction is rather difficult, even if one passes for white. A few minutes ago, I helped a Mormon neighbor lady break into her own home, after she locked herself out. She used a plastic card to fiddle her lock after I told her how.

      It can be a long time before one is accepted again. I probably should not have told her how to do it.

      • bilderbuster

        You did the neighborly thing to do and I doubt you learned that “criminal” skill while you were in the joint.

  • Chris Granzow XI

    No hate crime charge though? Really? When a white person kills a black, it’s automatically assumed to be racially motivated. They will jump at any little suggestion in the person’s history that suggests it could’ve been. Yet when it comes to blacks, they can yell racial slurs and have a history of hatred towards whites, yet it will still never be classified as a hate crime.

    • Ringo Lennon

      I’m wondering how many whites are killing blacks?

  • phillyguy

    Nolan and his Zionist defense team will claim that he is a jihadist so he will be put in a federal penitentiary and not have to face the death penaly.

  • De Doc

    Another violent, marginal IQ Negro who hates Whitey. Gee, this is astounding news! Someone call Eric Holder before he leaves his office.

  • Young Werther

    Since the various security offices of the early 1900’s regarding the Temple Movements and later the FBI (especially after 1930 and black islam) is responsible for monitoring and prosecuting certain radical elements in temples and mosques in all the major and even minor cities and hamlets across the US where there are Islamic Universities and Islamic student centers of *nationalistic* bent, I can’t help but wonder just how dedicated to protecting America has the AG’s office and the FBI been in these past 6 years during the establishment and rise of black supremacy ideology within government…or is it just me being a little weird? ha!

  • KyraNelson

  • ImTellinYa

    Domestic Blacks have been in this country for hundreds of years, and they are still third-world savages. This guy just did what third-world savages do as a matter of course. We are going to have to deport domestic Blacks along with all the lively, vibrant, parasitic nonWhites that cowards and traitors have invited here to serve as Leftist foot soldiers.

    I’m sure that affirmative-action parasite currently defiling the White House will be unhappy to be dumped in Kenya where there are no White people to con, but maybe he can get a job for the first time in his sorry life.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    What a sigh of relief. He beheaded her only because he hated White people, not for religion’s sake.

    Is there anyone out there who really doesn’t realize that this is an agenda to spread total chaos throughout this country? This creature is just another White hating Black who is using Islam as an assumed Carte Blanche to do whatever he wants.
    Now Ebola has been introduced to America and along with the rampant crimes and assaults on people, we are slowly approaching a point of no return.
    With all this going on now they’re going to punish sports reporters who use the word “Redskins”. This country has become a F—ing lunatic asylum.

    In order to keep this guy happy we should have supplied him with free watermelons.

  • Hannon

    I’m sad that this happened, but I hope some of these well meaning yet retarded liberals are scared and motivated by it to at least get pistol permits.

  • As little as I like blacks, it would never occur to me to behead a former co-worker over a food processing McJob, even if he or she was black. My old field was chemical engineering in the microelectronics industry. I have a nice life again without having to work very hard. Too many people – of any race – identify closely with their jobs, when they should not. My first job after returning home from federal prison was managing a Subway restaurant. When the store was sold, the new owner brought his own people in and I was first reduced in hours for two weeks and then let go. This didn’t hurt my feelings because I was there for only two reasons: (1) Making money, and (2) The terms of my federal probation required me to have a steady job. I was disappointed, but that’s about all. I got another job delivering pizza five days later. At Subway, I liked the people I with whom I worked. I still make damned good sandwiches, but only for my family now.

    I quit the pizza job at Blackjack because of workplace harassment after my shift manager knew I was a felon and couldn’t legally do anything to him. He drove over when he wasn’t on shift and continued his bullying, so I quit on the spot and drove home. I wasn’t about to waste the jerk over a McJob; I had paid off my mortgage and was going to get married.

    White privilege?

  • ElComadreja

    Will they be filing hate crime charges in that case? They’re getting desperate in their defense of Islam.
