    Don't worry about Markkk Shitcabbage. Worry about the jews and mamzers of the ZOGbot Poverty [F]Law Center


    Mark Shitcabbage used to run “The Militia Watchdog” which tried to track the Militia [bowel] Movement back in the early 1990s. Shitcabbage was trying to get militias shut down before the Collapse of Y2Kaos made them which were left disband. I myself pulled the plug on the two militias I led back in 1997 because they were largely defunct anyways.

    What I see is these social media giants in a state of panic. After all, like the jewspapers pissing off their White male former readership, so too they are now alienating those who pay the bills.

    I use jewbook and Twatter mainly to observe what the ZOGling whigger & mamzer tards are up to. I use my March 2009 picture with my dog as an avatar. I don’t put up anything sensitive on these platforms. I don’t buy what is advertised.

    I think we need to build our own platforms and tend our own gardens. I encouraged you to resume blogging after March of this year.

    Our bowel Movement is a network where us chieftains all know each other and often cannot agree or even like each other. Which is why I encourage, like I did with Harold Covington, for those of us who have something in common — hatred of ZOG — to if nothing else not waste time and resources in kicking over our respective troughs. Some of us can get along if we work at it. Conversely, some of us cannot and shouldn’t even try.

    There is a lot of lawfare going around. Last week I had to drive 900 miles to Lake County Ohio to deal with Bryan Reo / Kyle Bristow bogus litigation for calling them homos and mamzers on my web pages. Since I showed up and they couldn’t get a default judgment they found an excuse to deny me my jury trial and reset the case for late January 2019 for the ninth time. Maybe it is time to order up some prion poisoning.Or treat violations of jurisdictional lines as a Pet Sematary moment and channel my inner Quantrill to James Garfield’s home town and treat it like Lawrence Kansas.

    Most of our betrayals cum from those who pretend to be of us, like Reo and Bristow, but who are not.

    Yesterday I was kicked out of Granby City Hall again under thread of false arrest for violating a bogus “domestic violaence protective order” given out by two crooked judges for calling a Granby City Clerk a “fat hog” twice back in February. And a crooked judge says I have to pay a jew lawyer $4000 in sanctions for daring to sue Granby.




    But $4000 will pay for ten federal civil rights lawsuits at $400 filing fee apiece which will last a minimum of two or three years.

    Now you can either lawyer up or simply answer simply and counter-sue as necessary while doubling down on the First Amendment.

    These parasites need us. We don’t need them. Thus we should act accordingly.

    Default Kessler lawyer removed from civil case

    Kessler lawyer removed from civil case

    Daily Progress staff reports
    Oct 9, 2018


    An attorney who requested in August to withdraw from a civil case against James A. Fields and the organizers of the 2017 Unite the Right rally, saying someone placed his signature on court documents without his knowledge, had his request granted Tuesday.

    The $3 million civil suit, filed by two sisters in August 2017, alleges civil conspiracy, negligence and emotional distress.

    One case document, filed on behalf of rally organizer Jason Kessler and five others, lists Louisa attorney Richard Harry’s name and appears to include his signature. Harry said in Charlottesville Circuit Court in August that he had never agreed to work on the case. He did not say who he suspects signed his name.

    On Tuesday, Judge Richard E. Moore granted his request, according to court documents.

    The plaintiffs are Tadrint and Micah Washington. They were on their way to work on Aug. 12, 2017, and were detoured onto Fourth Street Southeast. Around 1:42 p.m., a gray Dodge Challenger, which police say was driven by Fields, plowed into a group of counter-protesters and several cars, including the Washingtons’ Toyota Camry. The sisters say they suffered serious injuries when they slammed into their car’s dashboard and window.

    The Washingtons’ suit originally named 30 defendants, but was narrowed this spring to Fields, Kessler, Richard Spencer, the National Policy Institute, William Regnery Jr., AltRight Corp., Mike Peinovich, Michael Hill, Matthew Heimbach, the Traditionalist Worker Party, the League of the South, Bradley Griffin, Vanguard America, Augustus Invictus, Chris Cantwell, Andrew Anglin, Moonbase Holdings, Identity Europa, Nathan Damigo and Elliott Kline.

    Fields, 21, appeared in Circuit Court Tuesday for a procedural hearing. He faces 10 state charges related to the rally, including first-degree murder in the death of Heather Heyer, 32, as well as 30 federal hate crime charges, some of which could result in the death penalty.

    Fields’ attorney, Denise Lunsford, and city Commonwealth’s Attorney Joe Platania discussed trial logistics and scheduling in a closed meeting with Moore and representatives from the clerk’s office and Charlottesville Sheriff’s Office.

    Afterward, Moore returned to the bench to address what was discussed. He clarified that no legal issues were raised during the meeting and no motions were made.

    “This meeting was just to make sure we don’t have any surprises arise at trial,” he said.

    Fields has a motions hearing set for 2 p.m. Oct. 29. His three-week trial in Charlottesville Circuit Court is set to begin Nov. 26.

    Default Stealth Activism

    Stealth Activism

    October 1, 2018 Hunter Wallace Activism


    The League of the South isn’t going to abandon public activism.

    We’re starting to use some new tactics though in light of our experiences in 2017. We’ve taken the flash rally and adapted it to hold the sort of events we used to hold back in 2014. Instead of publicly announcing our events on the internet and attracting mobs of counter-protesters, we’re just going to show up with vetted activists and engage with the public for a few hours.

    Here are some of the reasons why we are doing this:

    – Antifa are violent parasites who have been using our public events to attract publicity to their own cause which is anarchism and communism. The mainstream media is happy to spin a narrative in which we are the villains and these losers are the heroes who are “fighting Nazis.” The best way to respond to these parasites is to deplatform them by removing their presence from our events.

    – By deplatforming Antifa, we remove their ability to show up and engage in violence at our public events. We eliminate the threat of lawfare and police stand downs. We eliminate their ability to poison the atmosphere by creating a siege mentality in small towns like Pikeville and Shelbyville. We also eliminate the need for the “stadium plan” which costs these communities hundreds of thousands of dollars. We also deny them targets to mobilize against which slows their recruitment.

    – We are able to eliminate the “extremism journalists” from Huffington Post, Mic, Newsweek, The New Republic, Vice, The Guardian, Salon and so forth from our events whose job it is to work with Antifa, feed them intelligence and portray them in the best possible light. No one is reading about the League of the South in Huff Post and deciding to join our movement anyway.

    – We are able to eliminate the plants who are sent in to make us look bad as well as the unstable people who we don’t know who show up at public events with their own agenda.

    – We quit using Facebook public event pages and groups which Comrade Megan Squire has been using for her data mining project.

    – We have much greater control of the images that come out of our events without the “journalists,” livestreamers and teams of doxxers who are sent in to snap photos of our activists. The “journalists” are there to harm our people, not to report the news.

    – Without the League as a target, Antifa have been redirecting their violence toward Confederate heritage groups, Patriot groups and Alt-Lite groups, which further radicalizes moderates. We’re no longer in the same frame with Antifa when they engage in violence which makes it harder to blame us for it and lobby Big Tech for yet more social media censorship.

    In other words, we can still hold our public rallies like we used to, but without violent Antifa showing up for the publicity, without the “extremism journalists” trying to discredit us and without hundreds of unnecessary cops who keep us isolated and locked up in a “free speech” cage.

    This leaves the doxxers as the only remaining threat:

    Just go ahead and have an unnanounced Rally


    I’ve been operating solo in this fashion for over a decade and a half. I don’t ask for permission, I just show up and let the chips fall where they may. I used to work alongside others (and still do on occasion) but I found it difficult to get people to do things on the spur of the moment, or to place themselves in potential jeopardy. Most of the people that I’ve been associated with like to have everything planned out, working within a group of others at an officially sanctioned gathering. These people were always trying to get me to temper my approach or change the way I was saying things. I made them nervous. The only downside to being a lone wolf is that I probably seem like a solitary nut case to some people. Oh well. I’m only concerned with reaching those few whom I can make a difference with. Besides, being a little edgy often makes people hesitate before confronting me.

    One thing that I’ve done when being called a racist, is to reply, “I prefer the term Racialist.” I then explain that prior to 1950, the word racist wasn’t in a dictionary, and that there was another word “Racialist,” which had a broader definition. This frequently both perplexes my detractors and strips away their most potent weapon. Instead of me turning blue trying to defend myself against accusations of racism, I tacitly acknowledge it and then define it for them.

    Another thing that I always take care to do is to legitimize my presence. If it is an event that has a connection to the Confederacy, I amplify it. If it is a place that has Confederate roots, I reveal them. I don’t just wave a flag around and shout cliches. I usually try to have some self produced fact sheets, detailing whatever point I’m trying to emphasize, on hand for distribution to those who are interested. I’ve had a few triumphs and few moments that weren’t so stellar, but I try to learn from my mistakes and forge ahead undaunted.

    Keep up the good work and may God bless you!

    Because the local courts have let off the antifa rioters and tried, convicted & sentenced some white nationalist defendants for defending themselves.

    Now it is the turn of the feds to prosecute under federal charges those that the state and county didn’t get.

    In Russia, China or Africa people know that they don’t have any rights the government respects, so they stay politically inert. It is when you are stupid enough to think you have rights that you exercise them & then get in trouble for doing so. If you are going to go to the trouble of getting a permit, then a federal court order to demonstrate against a Confederate monument taken down & then you are run out of the park by the State and local police into the tender mercies of a mob of antifa, then dare to protect yourself and get charged criminally for doing so . . . what 1st Amendment?

    News of these arrests & prosecutions will have the effect of putting an end to these foolish demonstrations & rallies by white nationalists.

    Second Comment to Wall Street Journal Article:

    Every generation there is a federal show trial against White Nationalism. The last one in 1987-88 — The Ft. Smith Sedition Trial — cost millions of dollars, involved 30 defendants and ended in acquittals against all defendants.

    The “Unite the Right” Rally was the high point for the “Alt-Right”. It brought forth unknowns who regrettably became known. Since then the Alt-Right has imploded.

    The violence at Charlottesville was caused by the Charlottesville & State Police violating a federal court order to allow this rally protesting the removal of this Robert Lee statute. So the Governor of Virginia declared a “state of emergency” and forced the 200-300 white marchers to run the gauntlet of 800-1200 antifa. In the fighting afterwards people got hurt & a panicked James Fields was chased into running into stopped cars which might have lead to the death of an obese counter-protester.

    These latest federal arrests will mean the Movement goes back underground and only on the Internet.



    From what I heard, these federal charges involve the “tiki-torch flash rally” as well as the next morning’s fiasco.

    So given that these four are the first federal arrests made a year afterwards and other arrests are implied soon to come are any of these proposed “flash rallies” a good idea?

    Especially when you have a former jew pig who murdered a Puerto-Rican sneak thief named Arnauldo Ortega for no good reason in the Jersey City jail, then took a plea deal in return for testifying against this wop pig named David Dumers, got him 15 years after a jury trial, and then on the same day as Dumers’ federal appeal made his own appeal and so Dumers had to serve 13 years while William Raymond “Baal” Finck Junior got only12..5 years. According to ancestry.com Finck is third cousin to Mark Potok on his mother’s side and fourth cousin to Matt Lauer on his father’s side. Plus I’m counter-suing Baal Finck along with Bryan Reo and Kyle Bristow in Reo v. Church of Jesus Christ Christian / Aryan Nations of Missouri 16CV000825 in Lake County Ohio.

    The Dumers appellate briefl is a sealed record, but I do have the docket sheets if you wish to see them.

    I think that League of the South having “flash rallies” when four now, maybe more later, re facing federl charges for “rioting” at a “flash rally” before the rally for which they got a permit. That and having murderous jew pigs who literally “finked” out its fellow pig and deliberately destroyed his appeal by pleading “guilty” then filing its appeal on the very same day as the man he induced to murder then rat-fincked him out, then getting the dismissal of both appeals the very same day. Or being a cousin of Mark Potok?

    This recent turn of events might just be a spotting round. Shouldn’t you change policy on holding these rallies if they lead to federal criminal charges by federal informants which is a full Fire For Effect?

    Default Judge: White nationalists must turn over phones for lawsuit

    Judge: White nationalists must turn over phones for lawsuit

    November 14, 2018


    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Two dozen white nationalists accused in a lawsuit of violating civil rights laws during a deadly 2017 rally in Virginia have been ordered to turn over their cellphones and other electronic devices so the contents can be used as evidence when the case comes to trial.

    U.S. Magistrate Judge Joel Hoppe on Tuesday granted a request by lawyers who filed a lawsuit on behalf of people who were hurt when a car plowed into a group of counterprotesters on Aug. 12, 2017. One woman was killed and at least 19 others were injured.

    The order requires the defendants to allow imaging of their computers, cellphones and social media accounts and to turn over copies of communications related to the Charlottesville demonstrations to the plaintiffs’ lawyers.

    Some of the white nationalists also have been ordered to sign consent forms allowing the social media platform Discord to produce their communications leading up to the “Unite the Right” rally.

    “This is a significant decision because it means we will be able to secure valuable evidence from defendants’ own cellphones and other devices to use at our trial next year,” said Karen Dunn, one of the plaintiffs’ attorneys.

    Lawyers for the defendants did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

    The rally drew hundreds of white nationalists to Charlottesville, where officials planned to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Hundreds more showed up to protest against the white nationalists.

    The two sides began brawling before the rally got underway, throwing punches, setting off smoke bombs and unleashing chemical sprays. Later, 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed when a car plowed into a crowd of counterprotesters.

    James Fields Jr., 21, of Maumee, Ohio, has been charged with murder in Heyer’s death and also faces separate hate crime charges in federal court. His state trial is scheduled to begin on Nov. 26.

    The federal lawsuit accuses the white nationalists of violating state and federal civil rights laws. The plaintiffs include University of Virginia students and others who were injured in the car attack.

    Default To Doxx a Racist -- How a dead white supremacist sparked a debate over the tactics used against the extreme right

    To Doxx a Racist

    How a dead white supremacist sparked a debate over the tactics used against the extreme right



    In August of last year, a man named Andrew Dodson took part in the Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. There are videos of him marching toward Emancipation Park, along with hundreds of neo-Nazis, fascists, skinheads, alt-righters, white supremacists, neo-Confederates, and garden-variety racists. I remember seeing Dodson in Charlottesville, looking out of place in a sea of khakis and army boots, of black uniforms and lacrosse helmets and homespun shields. He wore a red Revolutionary War–style tricorne hat and a white linen suit that made his bushy red beard all the more conspicuous.

    Initially, amateur investigators wrongly identified Dodson as Kyle Quinn, an engineer in Arkansas who was quickly subjected to a torrent of online abuse. Then, a week after the Unite the Right rally, the Tumblr account Yes, You’re Racist identified Dodson, or doxxed him. The account published a picture of Dodson taken during the march, identifying him by name and listing a place of employment and the town where he lived. Logan Smith, who operates the Twitter account @YesYoureRacist, exposed the identity of several other participants of the rally and sent out a call to identify Dodson. His aim was to communicate that attending white supremacist marches came at a price. “If these people are so proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with white supremacists and neo-Nazis, then I think that their communities need to know who these people are,” Smith told MSNBC.*

    After the doxx, Dodson was reportedly let go from his job in Massachusetts. Then, on March 9, he died. For more than two months, his death went largely unnoticed, with the exception of a March 14 obituary in a local paper in South Carolina, where he was born.

    In May, however, white supremacists began claiming that Dodson was a martyr to their cause. Richard Spencer called his death an act of war. RedIce TV, a Swedish far-right outlet, created a hagiographic video in Dodson’s memory, replete with throbbing hearts, dramatic black-and-white images, and somber music. The mourners asserted that Dodson had killed himself following a massive campaign of harassment, designed to isolate him from his family, friends, and employer. In a video posted to Reddit, Dodson can be seen insisting that, after the doxx, his opponents were “trying to make me lose my job, trying to threaten my family.” The actual extent of the harassment is unclear, and there is no evidence so far that his death was a suicide. (His family declined to comment for this article, as did his coroner and funeral home.) But that hardly mattered to the alt-right: The point they wanted to make, facts notwithstanding, was that Dodson’s doxxing was proof that there was no low to which the left, in its rabid thirst for blood, would not stoop.

    As Laura Loomer, a former activist with the conservative group Project Veritas, famous for its misleading “sting” operations against liberal organizations like Planned Parenthood, tweeted, “Left wing insanity is killing people. This is so SAD!” In their outrage, the far right conveniently left out their own long history of doxxing. Chat logs obtained by the alternative media collective Unicorn Riot showed a concerted effort by members of the far right to release identities not only of antifa members and other left-wing activists, but also of journalists, “Marxist professors,” and “liberal teachers.”

    For the leftists combating the far right—a fight that has occasionally exploded into spectacular violence in places like Charlottesville, but has largely taken place on the internet—Dodson’s death, if it could be linked to his doxxing, was proof that the strategy worked. “If he did commit suicide after being doxxed, my attitude is: Thank you,” Daryle Lamont Jenkins told me. Jenkins is an anti-fascist activist, and his website, the One People’s Project, has been doxxing members of the far right for years. (Its slogan is “hate has consequences.”) Doxxing, public shaming, loss of employment, even death—all are the price you should be prepared to pay for racist behavior, according to Jenkins.

    He told me that he didn’t care about the effect any harassment may have had on Dodson. He also brought up Heather Heyer, who was killed by a white supremacist in Charlottesville: “He most certainly didn’t care for Heather Heyer, so why should we care for him?”

    Jenkins’s position is extreme, and would seem to be evidence of the far right’s argument that the left has gone beyond all decency. The use of radical tactics like doxxing, furthermore, has serious implications in an era when people are willing to go to great lengths to combat the threats that emanate from the White House and the worst of its supporters. Perhaps there are few outside the racist right who would mourn the death of Andrew Dodson, and fewer still who would argue that he deserved anonymous cover to spread racial hatred. Still, is there any resistance tactic that is out of bounds when it comes to fighting Nazi trolls? Did Andrew Dodson’s supporters, for all their hypocrisy, have a point? Or were they deliberately conflating two very different things, in an attempt to create a false moral equivalence between vicious online harassment and a powerful tool in the fight against violent racism?

    The tactic of exposing people’s identities to fight racism has a precedent in the U.S. The governor of Louisiana, John Parker, suggested in a speech in 1923 that “the light of publicity” should be turned on the Ku Klux Klan: “Its members cannot stand it. Reputable businessmen, bankers, lawyers, and others numbered among its members will not continue in its fold. They cannot afford it.” Later, during the Civil Rights era, several newspapers, aided by the House Committee on Un-American Activities, printed names and ranks of local Klansmen.

    But the impact was limited to local communities, where the identities of Klansmen were often common knowledge anyway. As a political tool, the publishing of private information became more potent in the 1980s and 1990s, when it was used by right-wing Christian conservatives against abortion providers. And it was thanks to the internet that doxxing, as it is now known, became widespread and devastatingly effective.

    I first met Jenkins outside the CPAC convention in Washington, D.C., in 2015, where I was reporting on the nascent far-right groups that were mingling with the GOP establishment with new intimacy. Jenkins had been warning people about the far right for more than a decade. In the 1990s he was a young activist trying to figure out how to fight the forces of white supremacy in America. He wanted to expose the racists to the world, to shame them into submission. The problem was that, as an African-American, his options for doing so were limited. He couldn’t very well go undercover and report on them.

    “I had the idea of publishing names and addresses after I saw anti-abortion activists doing it to abortion providers,” Jenkins told me. During the 1980s and 1990s anti-abortion activists routinely distributed the personal information of abortion providers, many of whom became targets of threats and violence. In 1997, anti-abortion activist Otis O’Neal “Neal” Horsley published the infamous “Nuremberg Files” website, a list of almost 200 active abortion providers, complete with photos, home addresses, and phone numbers. The site celebrated any act of violence against the providers and contained thinly veiled encouragements to its readers to take matters into their own hands.

    In 1995, Planned Parenthood sued Horsley along with the American Coalition of Life Activists, claiming that “wanted”-style posters of abortion doctors presented a threat to them. Planned Parenthood won the case but lost on appeal, when a federal court ruled that the First Amendment protected the Nuremberg Files.** A later appeal eventually overturned that verdict, but at that point Jenkins had had an epiphany: “When abortion providers took these people to court and lost, I said, ‘OK, this is another tool we could use.’” The lesson that he took from these early anti-abortion doxxes wasn’t that releasing private information could get people killed, but rather that you could do it and get away with it. “We didn’t see it as a weapon,” he said. “We never used it as a threat. We wanted to be open about what we saw and this allowed us to be open.”

    Until relatively recently, online doxxing was contained to the trenches of various culture wars in remote regions of the web. But as social media became the dominant force of life online, these disputes were opened to a wider audience. In 2011, the hacker collective Anonymous, which was then relatively unknown, released the names and addresses of several police officers who used excessive force against Occupy demonstrators in New York City. It was, in the eyes of the activists at least, a democratization of force. They were not powerless anymore.

    And then came the trolls. In 2014, on the message board 4chan, users conjured a spurious set of accusations regarding computer game developer Zoe Quinn. As the made-up scandal gathered steam, Quinn was subjected to an orchestrated harassment campaign that included not only a multitude of rape and death threats, but also the publishing of her private information. Doxxing could no longer be considered merely a tool the righteous could use to expose and shame evildoers; it was available to anyone and could be used on anyone.

    Doxxing, even in the most extreme cases, is fraught with ethical complications. On the one hand, those who choose to publicly take part in extreme political action accept that their identities will be public, too. It is the price of doing business, and most on the fringe right understand that. When Matthew Heimbach, the disgraced former leader of the Traditionalist Worker Party, one of the more notorious neo-Nazi groups to gain prominence in the 2016 election, slept with a loaded shotgun next to his bed, it was because having his address known by his political adversaries was a risk he had been willing to take. Heimbach was a high-profile leader in the white nationalist movement, and he and his wife had accepted the possible repercussions.

    On the other hand, doxxing can be an ugly and indiscriminate weapon, even when used in the fight against white supremacy. Katherine Weiss, a low-level member of Heimbach’s group, was once doxxed. She showed me numerous texts and emails of rape and death threats. Weiss’s white supremacist views were abhorrent, but is a threat of being “raped to death” justice? The trolls and racists of the far right regularly threaten female journalists and activists with sexual violence and death—which makes it all the more sobering to see the same threats going in the other direction.

    Is doxxing excusable when used against the right targets? Do the ends ever justify the means? In a ProPublica article published in the aftermath of Charlottesville, Danielle Citron, law professor at the University of Maryland, warned of the dangers of the practice. “I don’t care if it’s neo-Nazis or antifa,” she told ProPublica. “This is a very bad strategy leading to a downward spiral of depravity. It provides a permission structure to go outside the law and punish each other.”

    To an extent, Jenkins agrees. “I think right now things are becoming a little dicey,” he said. “More aggressive. Nobody wants to see anybody hurt.” But he places the blame at the feet of those in power, not the doxxers: “The political process is such that you don’t really see solutions to problems. People are at a loss as to how to change society and they are lashing out.”

    In the super-heated environment of the Trump era, the pool of potential doxxing targets has grown. A few weeks ago, as Donald Trump’s policy of zero tolerance on the border between the U.S. and Mexico forcibly separated thousands of children from their parents, calls went out to doxx the employees of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE). Sam Lavigne, an artist who works with data and surveillance in New York, used software to scrape the LinkedIn profiles of nearly 1,600 ICE employees. “No one really seems willing to take responsibility for what’s happening,” he told Vice. “I wanted to learn more about the individuals on the ground who are perpetrating the crisis.”

    An employee of the Department of Homeland Security recently found a burnt and decapitated animal carcass on their doorstep. Jordan Peterson, the controversial conservative professor, doxxed two of his own students for organizing a protest against a right-wing free speech rally. Employees and associates of Planned Parenthood get doxxed on an almost daily basis.

    Journalists are targets, too. In May, HuffPost reporter Luke O’Brien wrote a story that revealed the identity of noted racist blogger Amy Mekelburg. The harassment started even before the story was published. Under her Twitter handle @amymek, Mekelburg accused O’Brien of stalking her, using the reporter’s requests for comment as evidence that he was harassing her. Almost immediately, O’Brien and several people around the country who shared his name were set on by an army of Mekelburg’s defenders. They either did not know or care that his only crimes had been rigorous journalism and giving a very public political figure the opportunity to comment on a story about her. Violent threats started pouring in through Twitter, emails, text messages, and phone calls. Soon personal information about O’Brien’s family was published online. O’Brien spent 20-hour days gathering evidence of threats, which Twitter officials did little to combat.

    Another person named Luke O’Brien, who works as a freelance defense analyst, received dozens of threats over Twitter and email. He told me that he had defended the other O’Brien—until people started showing up outside the house where he lives with his wife and child. “It was enough to poison the well and make me reconsider how I dealt with them,” he told me. “Is it really worth the safety of my family to say what I believe, which is that these people are horrible?”

    Doxxing journalists is nothing new. There have been many instances of a reporter’s personal information being released, and most female journalists are well acquainted with the realities of online harassment. Over the course of tormenting O’Brien, white supremacist trolls spawned a new meme. Pictures of bricks turned up in the inboxes of journalists all over the country. On them were the words “Day of the Brick,” a reference to “Day of the Rope,” a plot point in neo-Nazi Bible The Turner Diaries, where the heroes of the book spend a day hanging lawyers, teachers, journalists, and other “traitors.” The fantasy of hanging journalists was replaced with the fantasy of smashing them with bricks. By doxxing O’Brien, the trolls meant to threaten all members of his profession.

    “They don’t care who they go after, that’s part of the strategy,” O’Brien told me. “They go after everyone else until they know they have the right person.”

    Few outside the outraged feedback loops of the far right would agree with O’Brien’s attackers that the aims and practices of journalism and those of doxxing are equivalent. A journalist provided, in this case, a public service by identifying dangerous white supremacists, whereas the doxxers who revealed his family’s personal information were trying to intimidate someone they considered an ideological opponent with an omnipresent threat of violence. But the conflation of genuine reporting with doxxing points to a foundational challenge in considering the issue.

    “One of the problems is that not only our opinion about when doxxing is right and wrong, but also about what constitutes doxxing, often change with who is doing it,” said Steve Holmes, an assistant professor in the department of English at George Mason University who has written extensively on the ethics of doxxing. “When you support the motives behind a given doxx, it is easy to go along with it as a justifiable act.”

    The far right considers the practice of releasing personal information about anti-fascist activists a useful weapon. But when a journalist like O’Brien exposes one of their own, they consider the release of personal information an inexcusable violation of privacy. Similarly, those on the left are affronted by threats against anti-fascist activists, while supporting the doxxing of ICE employees.

    The best way of looking at it, according to Holmes, is on a case-by-case basis; broad conclusions should be avoided. “Perhaps we need a taxonomy of the different forms of doxxing,” he suggested. “Doxxing can be a political threat, the revenge of a jilted ex, the exposure of toxic ideologies, and it can be the act of a whistleblower. We need a way to differentiate.”

    Naming white supremacists would seem to fall clearly into a category of exposing a toxic ideology. O’Brien told me that, while he was torn on doxxing as a general practice, he saw its value in exposing violent racists. “There’s a logic to it coming from antifa,” he said. “If you have a crypto-racist and fascist living next door to you, you’d probably want to know about it.” For Daryle Lamont Jenkins, a white supremacist who is active politically has forgone the right to privacy. “Until you show me a better way to defeat them, then shining a light on these people is the best thing we got,” he argued.

    Much like those who go after the worker bees of ICE, Jenkins targets the lower-level Nazis of the white supremacist movement. The leaders, he said, are public anyway. It is the foot soldiers that he believes can be scared off by the prospect of being outed. There is anecdotal evidence that supports his belief. The spotlight that was trained on the far right after Charlottesville not only caused members to leave the movement, but also led to entire groups shuttering.

    “Doxxing is a major hindrance to the far right, as it is one of the main stumbling blocks to real-world organization,” said George Hawley, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Alabama who has studied the far right in America. As he sees it, the threat of exposure has taken a significant toll on the white nationalist movement. “The social consequences of being associated with one of these groups can be quite high,” he said, “and for that reason few people are willing to do more than post anonymously on the internet.”

    Jenkins believes the recent successes of the doxxing campaign can be attributed to the changing nature of the far right. The current crop of white supremacists, known in the movement as “white nationalism 2.0,” are a different crowd than the 1.0 gang. “These are people who want to be in society,” he said. “They want to be doctors and politicians and police officers, and they can’t do that if they get publicly known as a Nazis. The 1.0 crowd didn’t care. They weren’t worried about getting into mainstream society.”

    The 2.0 nationalists have much more to lose, but since they are part of the mainstream they are also, according to Jenkins, far more dangerous. This presents its own challenges for the doxxers of the anti-fascist movement. You can only get doxxed once; after that there is not much left to do to a person. “Doxxing has less of an effect the more committed a white supremacist you are, because you’re more likely to have already revealed your beliefs or be less troubled in having them revealed to the world,” said Mark Pitcavage, senior researcher at the Center on Extremism at the Anti-Defamation League. “It is most effective against those white supremacists, often relatively new, who worry about leaving the closet.”

    Oren Segal, the director of the Center on Extremism, added that doxxing has led racist agitators to hide themselves better. “It is common to see younger white supremacists covering their faces in their propaganda these days,” he told me. “Even flash demonstrations, which are primarily a response to antifa, enable white supremacists to have greater control of the presentation of their images.”

    Still, the point of doxxing is to spread fear. Just because one doxxed nationalist has nothing left to lose, it could still affect the choices of those who remain anonymous. “Doxxing extends beyond hurting a particular individual,” Hawley said. “The goal is to make an example out of someone, to show others what can happen if they sign up with the radical right.”

    In this respect doxxing, for all its complications, has undeniable upsides. Pointing out that people on both the far left and the far right utilize doxxing creates a false equivalency, rooted in the notion, made famous by Donald Trump after Charlottesville, that “there are good people on both sides.” The threats of violence leveled at female, Jewish, and African-American journalists and activists are not matched by anything experienced by white people on the fringe right. The orchestrated efforts of that cohort to harass and threaten those with whom they disagree or simply dislike are unrivaled by anyone else, as is their blanket encouragement of violence against reporters.

    But there is political expediency in lumping the two sides together as equal combatants. The disruptive protests by the Black Bloc faction of antifa during Trump’s inauguration, their brawls with fascists on the streets of many American cities, and their efforts to shut down speaking engagements of far-right speakers, have led conservatives in Congress to realize that there is political hay to be made. To that end, Rep. Dan Donovan of New York came up with HR 6054, also known as the “Unmasking Antifa Act.” The law aims to target anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates” those exercising a constitutional right, but is widely seen as an attempt to cast antifa and other left-wing protesters as a threat to public safety, ignoring the fact that far-right activists have a far bloodier track record, not just in recent times, but also throughout the last century. In fact, 18 states already have anti-mask laws, enacted in response to KKK violence during the Civil Rights era.

    The bill, designed to equate the far right and the far left, is of a piece with far right joining Andrew Dodson’s death to their cause. It is a tool used to validate the assertion that leftists are a violent mob out for blood, that their version of rough justice is completely depraved. These are polarized times, but justice is not simply in the eye of the beholder—at least not yet.

    *An earlier version of this article implied that Logan Smith ran the Tumblr account Yes, You’re Racist. He denies any involvement in the account, despite the fact that the Tumblr is identical in several respects to the Twitter account @YesYoureRacist.

    **An earlier version of this article stated that Planned Parenthood brought a case in 1995 against Neal Horsley based on the Nuremberg Files. In fact, it was based on “wanted”-style posters of abortion doctors, though the case ultimately ruled on the legality of the Nuremberg Files.

    Default Failure Analysis: Alt-Right

    Failure Analysis: Alt-Right


    With the leaked audio of Richard Spencer’s embarrassing tantrum after the Charlottesville riot, the book can finally be closed on the alt-right. If there was anyone still using the term as anything but an epithet, they will no doubt drop it. The first political movement to grow out of internet culture has come and an ignominious end. While it may no longer be a thing, examining what they did right and what they did wrong, especially what they did wrong, can be useful for dissidents.

    The primary reason the alt-right failed was that it was never a coherent movement with an intellectual center. It was just a ragtag collection of people with a gripe about something going on in the culture. There were those who recently discovered Kevin McDonald, so they worked that angle. Others had discovered race realism and figured out why libertarianism was a dead end. Then there were the boys who did not like what was happening with feminism. The alt-right was a grievance society.

    Reaction to social trends can certainly be the starting point of a cultural or political movement, but it can never be the end point. If the whole point of your politics is to stand in opposition to something, you’re not part of a movement. You are part of an obstacle that will eventually be removed. That is what literally happened to the alt-right, piece by piece, over the last few years. One tribe of the alt-right after another was anathematized and then marginalized by the Left. Now it is gone entirely.

    Now, some would argue that the concept of the ethno-state was the vision of the alt-right, but that was another reason it failed. Richard Spencer would have been more successful claiming he was going to lead the alt-right back to the Shire, so they could reunite with their hobbit brothers. Setting your goal as the creation of a what is basically white Wakanda is not serious. As a theoretical construct to use as a critique of multiculturalism it could have been useful, but as a goal it was absurd.

    The thing is, racial nationalism is not a new thing. Arab nationalism was a legitimate movement in the middle of the last century. There was a pan-African nationalism that rose up in the later years of colonialism. Both failed in their stated goals, because race is a terrible way to organize people. Loyalty starts with family, then extended family and finally the extended family of ethnicity. Race is a general grouping of people that corresponds to the big geographical groupings. Race is not ethnicity.

    This is why American dissidents need to be careful to acknowledge the geographic diversity of occidentals in North America. The old stock Yankee living in New Hampshire may share the same opinions on biology as a Southerner, but they will remain men from different tribes. This diversity among white people in America is why the people in charge have been so successful. They exploit these differences to turn a majority population into a hated minority. That reality must be respected.

    That brings up another failure of the alt-right. It never had intellectual heft. Richard Spencer liked to cast himself as a philosopher, but he was always a dilettante, more concerned with media attention, than thinking about politics. He was a lot like Barak Obama, in that his fans would say he was inspirational, but they could never tell you anything he said that was memorable, other than the gaffes. His innumeracy prevented him from making an affirmative argument about biology.

    Otherwise, no one filled the intellectual void at the center of the alt-right. Some of the writers for Counter Currents gave it a go, but they were always a bit wary of what was going on with the alt-right. Others would turn up with an essay here or there, but the movement never attracted anyone who was well read and prepared to articulate the main ideas that allegedly animated the alt-right. Instead, it was Spencer rambling on YouTube videos about Faustian man and the ethno-state.

    Of course, one reason the movement failed to attract smart people toiling in the intellectual fields of bio-diversity is the movement had a lot of cranks. In fact, the alt-right seemed to be a crank magnet. It was a freak show of e-celebs, who were never all that interested in politics. Guys like Milo and Cerno are good examples. For them, politics is a vehicle to internet stardom. Serious people interested in serious politics will not get involved with a movement that welcomes freaks and weirdos.

    That is the one great lesson from the alt-right. No organization can survive incompetence at the top. Whether you are forming a local group to clean up a park or you are organizing for a larger political goal, you have to have high quality people at the center of it. The alt-right made a fetish of not purging people, but that became a doggy door for the worst sorts of people to enter their movement. No matter how cheeky or clever your internet memes, you can’t win counting on losers.

    Self-policing, of course, gets a lot easier in real life organizing. On-line, people are free to play any character they like. In real life, people quickly sort the wheat from the chaff, so excluding grifters and lunatics gets easier. Good people tend to boil off the bad people, through the natural social mechanisms. That is the most important lesson of the alt-right. The internet is not real. It cannot replace real life organizing. If there is going to be a resistance to what is happening, it must happen in the real world.
