Hardy Lloyd is a violent neo-Nazi that has been in and out of state and federal prisons for nearly two decades. He is a former leader of World Church of the Creator, also known as Creativity, a violent white-supremacist hate group that espouses antisemitism. In 2003, he was involuntarily committed to a psychiatric facility and kicked out of the organization.
In 2004, Hardy Lloyd was charged with killing a woman he met on an online dating site, 41 year old Lori Hann. He shot her in the head, stating he wanted to “to watch her die” to police. At the time of the shooting, watchdog organizations who track hate groups said they believed Lloyd had recently broken from one group to preach as a “lone wolf.” After police searched his home, they found dozens of books on Adolf Hitler and white supremacy, including “White Power.”
Shockingly, Lloyd was found not guilty in the killing of Hann when a jury found he was acting in self defense; he was however convicted of carrying a firearm without a license. He was ordered to serve 11 1/2 to 23 months in jail with three years probation.
After he was freed, Lloyd launched “Universal Fascism” whose stated goal was to “promote open and violent revolt against the Americans, the JEWS, the Economic Elite of the world, and Monotheism!” according to his now deleted website.
On his now-deleted website, Lloyd taunted the family of the woman he killed with song lyrics about getting away with murder. He titled one song “Bi*ch Killer”, a take on Ice T’s 1992 single “Cop Killer”.
In 2009, after three police officers were killed in the Pittsburgh area, Lloyd praised the murderer’s actions on his website, writing “We are meant to kill and die” and “Death to all white people and anglo-saxons”. Investigators found a picture on Lloyd’s blog of a shotgun, with the caption, “The best gun I ever used! No revolvers needed, babe!” That information was used as probable cause to conduct a search of Lloyd’s home, where investigators found 10 firearms, including two fully loaded handguns. He was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and was ordered to serve 30 months in federal prison to be followed by three years of supervised release.
Lloyd violated his release, and in 2016, he was sentenced to 14 more months in prison to be followed by 22 months of supervised release. The following year, he violated his release again by circulating antisemitic fliers in the Pittsburgh area and using computers to watch violent videos and order weapons; he was ordered to more prison time. During his bigoted and violent antics, he was caught trespassing Carnegie Melon University. Subsequently, he was cited and banned from their property.
Shortly after the Pittsburgh Tree of Life shooting massacre that left 11 people dead, Hardy Lloyd posted on social media, “Target: Jew Hill” — a reference to the Jewish neighborhood where the shooting occurred. After an assault weapons ban went into effect that year, he took to social media again, posting “Anyone who supports such laws must be targeted, and their families murdered. Lone Wolves GET BUSY.”
In August 2019 Hardy Lloyd was sentenced to two years in the federal lockup, for violating terms of his supervised release and posting the above online threats against Jews and gun-ban advocates, but was released just a year later on October 6, 2020. The Pittsburgh Jewish community has been informed by the authorities to stay vigilant. Hardy Lloyd’s unlawful and violent behavior remains a threat to our communities.
For those in the Pittsburgh Area – Stay Informed.
