Law enforcement and Jewish organizations across the country are urging vigilance after a neo-Nazi group proclaimed this Saturday to be a national “Day of Hate.”
The white supremacists have called for followers to distribute anti-Semitic messaging with banners, stickers, fliers and graffiti. There are no known threats of violence as of yet. But these things are hard to predict especially in the less tolerant red states.
Several hate groups have said they are participating in the event: “Take a stand, and expose the international clique of parasitic vermin that infest our nation,” said a statement attributed to the hate groups. “Make your voices heard loud and clear, that the one true enemy of the American people is the Jew.”
Anti-Semitic neo-Nazi’s protested the opening of “Parade” a true story about antisemitism.
Theatergoers making their way into the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre to see the Broadway musical “Parade,” about a notorious anti-Semitic incident of 1915, provoked vile anti-Semitic demonstrations of 2023 outside the theater where the show was having its first preview.
On February 19, 1999, Billy Jack Gaither went to The Tavern, a Sylacauga, Alabama nightclub, where he had been friends with the owner, Marion Hammond, for twenty years. Gaither was a regular there, if he wasn’t at the Tool Box in Birmingham forty miles away. Hammond remembered that he was nonchalant about his sexuality. ” If they walked over to Billy Jack and they say, ‘Are you gay?’ he’d say, ‘Yes, and I love it.’ You couldn’t hurt his feelings on it, so we wasn’t worried about it.”
Another regular, Steve Mullins, 25, also started to hang out at the Tavern. His presence wasn’t so benign. He sometimes showed up wearing racist t-shirts and harassing African-American customers. He was known locally as a wannabe tough-acting skinhead. “He tried to walk around like a bully, but he wasn’t,” Hammond said. “He was mostly talk.” His buddy, a construction worker named Charles Butler, Jr., was quieter.
Gaither had a reputation for getting along with pretty much everyone, so nobody’s eyebrows were raised when Gaither left The Tavern that night with Mullins and Butler. The three drove to a remote area where Mullins and Butler beat Gaither, stuffed him into the trunk, and went for supplies: kerosene, matches, an axe handle and old tires form Mullins’s home. They then drove to the banks of Peckerwood Creek in neighboring Coosa County. They poured kerosene on the tires and set them ablaze. Then they pulled Gaither out of the trunk of his car. He tried to stand up and they beat him with the ax handle, cut his throat, and threw him onto the pile of burning tires. They moved Gaither’s car to another dirt road and set it on fire. It was found the next day.
The Justice Department announced that Conor Climo, 23 a suspected Neo-Nazi was charged Friday in connection to bomb-making materials after it was discovered that in encrypted online conversations in White Nationalist chat groups this year he discussed making Molotov Cocktails and explosive devices, used anti-Semitic and homophobic slurs, and discussed attacking an area synagogue and surveilling a gay bar for a domestic terrorist attack.
Climo was arrested Thursday morning following an FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation and made his first appearance before a judge Friday afternoon.
“Threats of violence motivated by hate and intended to intimidate or coerce our faith-based and LGBT communities have no place in this Country,” U.S. Attorney Nicholas Trutanich said in a statement. “Law enforcement in Nevada remains determined to use the full weight of our investigative resources to prevent bias-motivated violence before it happens.”
Prosecutors say Climo was in communication with individuals who belong to a white supremacist organization that the Justice Department says promotes attacks on the federal government, minorities and the LGBT community.
Authorities say they seized a notebook during Climo’s arrest with several hand-drawn schematics for a potential Las Vegas-area attack and drawings of timed explosive devices.
Climo faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
A 20-year-old man has been convicted of preparing an act of terrorism after he planned to carry out a machete attack on a gay pride event in Cumbria. Ethan Stables showed no reaction as the verdicts were returned at Leeds crown court on Monday morning and he was remanded in custody before sentencing later in the day.
Officers had received a tip-off from a member of a far-right Facebook group where Stables posted a message saying he was “going to war” and that he planned to “slaughter every single one of the gay bastards”. After he was arrested, police found Stables had made internet searches for “how to make chemical poison”, “what is prison like for a murderer”, “I want to go on a killing spree” and “do you get haircuts in prison”.
The jury was shown a video of him burning a rainbow flag and posing next to a swastika hanging on his bedroom wall. He swapped messages with fellow extremists, blaming the fact that he was jobless on “faggots, niggers, spastics” and the Equalities Act.
Last week we reported here that Stables shocked the jury at Leeds Crown Court when he told them that he is actually bisexual and was ‘utterly ashamed’ of what he had done.
Ethan Stables, the man accused of planning to attack an LGBT PRIDE event at the New Empire pub in Barrow, Cumbria,. has told a jury at Leeds Crown Court that he is actually bisexual.
Stables made the shocking revelation after a jury saw a video of him saying ‘gays look nicer on fire’ as he burned a rainbow flag. However he said that he had previously been too scared to reveal his sexuality because his parents ‘would be disgusted’ saying he was ‘utterly ashamed’ of what he had done
Stables, denies preparing an act of terrorism and threats to kill in June last year.
Prosecutors claim the “white supremacist” had a “deep-seated hatred” of minorities, especially gay people.
The court heard Mr Stables was planning to use an axe and machete during the attack, but the plan was foiled after he told people about it on Facebook.
The court previously heard told Mr Stables was a neo-Nazi who had tried to obtain guns and the means to make an improvised explosive device.
Jurors were told he posted a series of messages in a Facebook chat group which included: “I’m going to war tonight.”
Stables was arrested on his way to a reconnaissance visit to the pub before returning to his home for the machete and axe, Mr Sandiford said.
Mr Stables claimed he had forgotten he owned a machete when writing online that he was going to kill gay people with one, the court heard.
This Saturday, January 27, the League of the South (LOS), a neo-confederate organization that seeks to establish a white, Christian ethnostate in the southeastern U.S., will hold its first rally of the new year on the steps of Florida’s capitol building in Tallahassee.
In a post on the League’s website titled “Off and Running,” LOS president Michael Hill announced the event, the first since the League’s planned dual rallies in Shelbyville and Murfreesboro, Tennessee, collapsed under the weight of intense public protest. The post is styled as a militaristic “Directive 05012018,” a flourish that is emblematic of Hill’s embrace of warlike posturing and rhetoric.
Hill’s post did not indicate a theme for Saturday’s rally. Past events at the Tallahassee capitol have attempted to leverage media scrutiny around issues of immigration, federal elections, and Confederate memorials, all with the end-goal of garnering support for the League’s pursuit of a balkanized south.”
What a coincidence! January 27 is also punch a Neo-Nazi day. Of course everyday is punch a Neo-Nazi day.
Orange County prosecutors have charged former schoolmate Samuel Woodard with the murder of Blaze Bernstein this past Wednesday after DNA evidence at the crime scene in Borrego Park and inside his car tied him to the brutal slaying.
Prosecutors say that after an interaction on Snapchat, Woodward picked up Bernstein at his parents’ house in Lake Forest and stabbed him at least 20 times, killing him
Since Bernstein’s parents reported him missing to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department on Jan. 3, officials dedicated a team of 25 search-and-rescue deputies, police K-9s, multiple helicopter expeditions and drones to locating Bernstein, whose body was found Jan. 9 in a shallow grave at Borrego Park in Lake Forest.
The Orange County Register reported on Tuesday that a search warrant affidavit described Woodward as saying Bernstein had kissed him on the lips after Woodward picked Bernstein up on the night of Jan. 2. Investigators said that Woodward recalled the moment, clenching his jaw and fists, saying he wanted Bernstein to “get off him.”
Woodward told investigators he pushed Bernstein away and wanted to call him a “f—-t,” The Orange County Register reported of the 16-page affidavit.
Now multiple sources say Woodard, would post Neo-Nazi and white supremacist ideology on a now-deleted iFunny account and constantly got in debates over his beliefs ‘of white nationalism and support of Nazi ideas
He constantly got in debates over his beliefs ‘of white nationalism and support of Nazi ideas,’ according to Daniel W.
‘Anti-Semitism and homophobia were certainly aspects of his ideology,’ said another iFunny user who added they were close with Woodard.
Prosecutors have not ruled out charging Woodward with a hate crime but say they will only do so if there is enough evidence.
A Missouri man with connections to white supremacists has been charged with terrorism after authorities said he brought a cross-country Amtrak train to a halt last fall in rural Nebraska. Taylor M. Wilson of suburban St. Louis intended to hurt passengers, authorities said.
The 26-year-old has been charged in federal court in Lincoln with terrorism attacks and other violence against mass transportation systems, according to federal court records unsealed Wednesday. The incident occurred overnight as the train traveled through Nebraska during the third weekend of October, according to law enforcement officials.
Wilson entered a restricted area of the train as it neared Oxford, Nebraska, and triggered the emergency brake in what authorities say was an attempt to derail the train. During booking at the Furnas County Jail, Wilson was found in possession of a business card of the National Socialist Movement in Detroit, considered one of the largest neo-Nazi groups in the U.S.
The first deputy to arrive to meet the train said that he handcuffed Wilson and asked him numerous times if he had any weapons, but Wilson would not reply, according to court documents. The deputy then patted down the front of Wilson’s pants and felt a bulge in his front left pocket. When he asked him what it was, Wilson replied, “my dick,” according to court documents.
The deputy found it was actually a fully loaded speedloader, a device used to reduce the time and effort needed to reload a gun, with .38 bullets. He also had a fully loaded .38 caliber handgun, the deputy said. He is the holder of a valid Missouri Concealed Handgun permit, according to court documents.
The FBI investigation of Wilson showed he participated the protests in Charlottesville, Virginia in August with White Nationalist Neo-Nazis and expressed “an interest in killing black people.”
A screencap of a CNN broadcast is making the rounds on social media, showing one of the neo-nazi “security team” at the protest in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday wearing a Marvel comic’s evil HYDRA organization t-shirt
For those of you who need a Clift’s Notes crash course on Marvel Comic’s evil HYDRA organization:
Before the evolution of mankind, a cabal of immortal hooded reptoids came to Earth, planning to start a legacy of evil. Millions of years later, they corrupted an Asian secret society of geniuses known as the Brotherhood of the Spear, which resulted in that group being called “the Beast” by the Brotherhood of the Shield. The corrupted Brotherhood of the Spear spread out, ingraining itself like a multi-headed serpent into all facets of human society, from science to magic and politics. As time wore on, the organization’s name changed and it included the Cathari sect as well as the Thule Society.The Nazi sub group, funded by the Thule Society, was brought into the main Hydra fold after the end of World War II.
One of the Nazi members, Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, quickly seized control of the Hydra organization and restructured it to be dedicated to world domination through terrorist and subversive activities on various fronts, resulting in a global neo-fascist New Order. To this end, Baron von Strucker used his personal fortune, based on his recovered hoard of Nazi plunder from World War II, and funds established by the original leaders of the Japanese secret society that became part of the old Hydra. However, after von Strucker’s first death, Hydra broke into factions (such as A.I.M., Secret Empire, Them, etc.) that each adopted its own reorganized modus operandi. Eventually, this fragmentation would lead to a Hydra civil war, even after von Strucker’s resurrection.
