Jonathan Ziegler FolksFront / Folkish Resistance Movement neo-Nazi

Meet Jonathan Ziegler of Omaha, NE. Jonathan was caught on camera placing neo-Nazi stickers on the campus of Temple Israel on April 9 2021, the day after Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Rememberance Day. In 2019, the Temple Israel cemetery was extensively damaged and it remains unsolved.

Multiple angles caught Ziegler walking his dog while vandalizing for Folksfront, the propaganda arm of the Folkish Resistance Movement, a neo-Nazi group fashioning themselves after the Nordic Resistance Movement active across Scandinavian countries including Finland where the political party is banned for being a violent threat. FRM existence mainly consists of stickers, posters, and banners with National Socialist themes of antisemitism and perceived white persecution.

The FRM website and Telegram posted photos of Omaha and Papillion stickers, and Jonathan’s dog is visible in those as well. An older photo on Facebook shows Jonny Z and his baby momma RaKay Reyes with the dog. Man’s best friend is a snitch.

Jonathan Ziegler lists Genesis Health Clubs as his employer where he is a fitness manager.

Most of Jon Ziegler’s social media has recently either deactivated or made private, except for his Venmo where he had multiple interactions with Paul Miller, a minor star in the National Socialist and Proud Boys circles. Miller is currently being held on federal weapons charges in Florida, but he previously found infamy during a New York City street brawl led by Proud Boys founder Gavin Mcinnes in 2018 in which Mcinnes brandished a sword while other Proud Boys chased and attacked people.

Bryce Boepple; Identity Evropa white nationalist

Bryce Christopher Boepple is a Jew-hating neo-Nazi white nationalist and an Identity Evropa member that traveled in 2017 to Charlottesville, VA to participate in the deadly white supremacist ‘Unite the Right’ rally.

Bryce Boepple moved from Fargo, ND to Omaha, NE after he graduated from North Dakota State University. He currently works for Aerotek Staffing Agency as a job placement agent.  402-997-7607

Bryce Boepple posts on the Discord chat servers of Identity Evropa as BryceB-ND where he distributed flyers and organized official Identity Evropa events like the July 15, 2017 Midwest chapters group participation at the Warrior Dash competition in Tekamah, NE.

Boepple is tasked with placing precarious workers in temporary job assignments. This calls into question if he is discriminating against qualified workers getting temp assignments because he holds racist ideas.


Boepple memorialized a notorious Holocaust denier when he died of old age in 2017. Ernst Zündel was born in Germany and hid out in Canada so he could be a professional “historical revisionist” in regards to the Jewish Holocaust.


Bryce Boepple wears the black sun or sonnenrad of esoteric Nazi Germany. The same symbol was worn by the Christchurch mosque shooter on his body armor as he indiscriminately killed 49 Muslims during prayers. Boepple lifts weights at Omaha Barbell.

Boepple said “after we’ve dealt with our demographic issues, we have a long road ahead of us fixing the lifestyles of your average white male.” He also spoke supportively of Lauren Southern’s “Great Replacement”  propaganda/documentary, which was referenced at length in the manifesto of the Christchurch mosque shooter.



Boepple said in a tweet “National Socialism shatters the left-right dichotomy does it not?” This is the often cited claim that because nazis had “socialism” in their party name that they were a synthesis of nationalism and socialism.

Boepple retweets neo-Nazis quoting Hitler’s book Mein Kampf and photos of the Third Reich, and he curated a YouTube playlist of Nazi speeches and songs. He is proficient in German and believes that makes him the ubermensch Aryan neo-Nazi.

Bryce Boepple rationalized anyone could have made the same decision James Alex Fields made on August 12, 2017 when he purposely drove his Dodge Charger into a crowd of counterprotesters. Fields was found guilty of Heather Heyer’s murder.

Identity Evropa claims it is not like the other violent white nationalist groups because they don’t fly a swastika, but the current leader Patrick Casey has “retired” Identity Evropa the same weekend that independent non-profit investigative journalists Unicorn Riot exposed their chats showing the same toxic and violent sentiments as any other active white nationalist or white separatist group. Identity Evropa has rebranded as “American Identity Movement,” because it was “held down by baggage accumulated before my tenure,” Casey told The new group, according to a news release this week, is focused on “defending America against globalism.”

Casey didn’t elaborate on the “baggage” that ended Identity Evropa, but the group’s members were prominently featured at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, and the organization has been named as a defendant in Sines v. Kessler, an ongoing federal lawsuit alleging the group and others conspired to commit crimes of bias and racial hatred at the 2017 rally.

Bryce Boepple was partially exposed while he still lived in North Dakota by a pro-Israeli group that also tracks Palestinian college campus activists, and for that reason we will not link to them.

However, Bryce Boepple in response to their work says “You cant talk your way through a dox. Leftists and Jewish websites will seek to ruin your reputation and stifle your employment opportunities.”

The solution to that problem is don’t be a neo-Nazi and people won’t try to expose your genocidal ideas and violent behavior, Bryce.

Bennett Bressman; Nebraska Governor’s Field Director

Bennett Bressman likes to “name the Jew” in white nationalist chatrooms. That’s a problem for Nebraska’s Jewish population because he’s the Statewide Field Director for Nebraska’s billionaire governor Pete Ricketts. Bressman, a  UNL student, leads a team of twenty-four interns operating Rickett’s phone banking, neighborhood canvassing, answering constituent questions, yard sign supply-chain management and the distribution of campaign literature.

Bennett Bressman posted online as “bress222” in the leaked private chats for fans of the white nationalist YouTube show America First hosted by Nicholas J Fuentes. Bressman expressed extremely racist, antisemitic, homophobic, and violent sentiments throughout his more than 3000 comments, some of which is posted below. Bressman also dropped enough clues to his identity and employer, including photographic evidence, for Antifascist Action Nebraska to positively confirm his identity. His comments can be read, verified, and searched in full on Unicorn Riot

Governor Pete Ricketts and Kenny Zoeller, executive director of the Nebraska Republican Party, need to take swift and decisive action in the face of this hate so prevalent in leadership roles. Hate doesn’t exist in isolation and Bressman isn’t an outlier. This hateful behavior is encouraged and rewarded through systematic white supremacist ideology. The only acceptable course of action is for Governor Ricketts to fire everyone on his staff, repatriate this land to the indigenous people it was stolen from, then resign in disgrace.

[UPDATE 3/12/19]

Ricketts claims Bressman left his staff in December 2018 and is no longer in contact with the office, but Lincoln Star-Journal noted he was at a March 1 2019 Lincoln-Reagan luncheon as an anti-marijuana lobbyist. Bressman told LSJ he posted on his own time out of the office. His own words contradict him.

Messages shared on the gaming chat platform Discord were obtained by independent media collective Unicorn Riot in their ongoing investigations of the far right. The leaked chats, available in full on the Discord Leaks platform, provide an intensive look at the behind-the-scenes workings of Identity Evropa, perhaps the most active fascist group in the United States.

Two Discord chat servers associated with Identity Evropa – ‘Nationalist Review‘ and ‘Nick Fuentes Server‘ – hosted months of chats for fans of podcasts and videos produced by James Allsup and Nick Fuentes. Allsup and Fuentes, both white nationalist YouTubers and involved with Identity Evropa attended the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, VA in 2017 where James Alex Fields drove his car into a crowd, killing Heyer Heyer and injuring dozens.

Nicholas Fuentes was recently invited (then disinvited) to speak at Iowa State University by Turning Point USA and the school’s College Republicans. According to the Des Moines Register, Fuentes still appeared on campus but students opposing him successfully cut his unwelcomed visit short.

Bennett Bressman was one of the most active members of the ‘Nick Fuentes Server’ until it was deleted by Discord shortly after the ISU visit for “incitement to violence,” according to a tweet by Fuentes.

Bennett Bressman described his Nebraska GOP job twice as “state wide field director for governor.”

“bress22” posted a photo at a ‘Need to Impeach’ campaign tour stop hosted by billionaire Democrat donor Tom Steyer. The tour schedule placed him in Omaha on June 21, 2018. The next day “bress22” posted two photos and said “the news captured me at the impeach blumpf event.” He helpfully circled and pointed a large red arrow at himself. The Omaha Fox 42 news footage of the event matched the photos he posted in the chat server.

A simple search of “Ricketts State Field Director” directs to Bennett Bressman’s LinkedIn profile and news articles citing him as the State Field Director for Ricketts. He also posted the same selfie to Nick Fuentes Server and his Instagram bressman402.

Bressman posted a screenshot of a text from his boss, Kenny Zoeller, asking him to delete a tweet critical of Israel. Like his Republican contemporaries, most of Bressman’s attention is occupied by Israel and the conflation that it represents all Jews, so we will highlight his thoughts there first.

Bressman’s comments are organized here by topic. We have sectioned his thoughts on Jews, the Holocaust, on political and personal violence against black activists, LGBT parades and journalists. Following this, his thoughts on race and immigration, and finally his ideas on current policies and the future political gains of fascism.

Bressman on Jews

He still likes conservative radio host Michael Savage “even though he’s a jew”

The (((echos))) reference is an antisemitic meme started by white nationalist UNO student Cooper Ward on The Daily Shoah podcast as an audio effect to emphasize a Jewish name. In text it is shown with triple parentheses. Bressman used this meme to describe Ari Kohen, his American Revolution professor at UNL.

Two other antisemitic tropes we’ve covered before, the first called “the Merchant” which is an illustration of a nefarious Jewish man rubbing his hands together. The other is a conspiracy theory about Jewish influence, such as global control of banking and Hollywood, or the promotion of vices like alcoholism. Bressman is using the antisemitic conspiracy language of “naming the Jew” in which this influence must be explicitly pointed out to non-Jewish people. Bressman names Hollywood “the visual Jew” and alcohol “the liquid Jew” in the following comments.

Bressman watched a 2005 YouTube “documentary” based on a debunked text from 1903 that claimed to outline the plan for Jewish domination. Neo-Nazis have used this text to both justify and deny the Holocaust, and prove all antisemitic attacks are self-defense. The Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue shooter believes he was acting in defense.

Bressman on the Holocaust 

Bressman on political violence

Bressman admits he would purposefully and maliciously drive into a Black Lives Matter protest in his white 2009 Daytona Charger with black trim.

Bressman confesses to committing a hate crime at an LGBT rally for which he was never held responsible, and says he would do it again.

Bressman trying to work up the courage to yell at homeless people from his car.

Bressman’s casual endorsements of genocide.

Bressman says the only meme he ever made was about Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas mass shooter, seen on security cameras carrying two large bags believed to contain the guns he used. The bags are labeled “crime statistics” and “bell curves” in reference to Charles Murray’s book that claimed there is a correlation between race and intelligence.

Bressman on Race and Immigration 

The Department of Homeland Security released a memo that had striking similarities to a neo-Nazi slogan referred to as the 14 Words. Bressman suggests he would vandalize an immigration law office with this DHS memo.

Bressman dropping hard N-bombs with both soft and hard Rs.

Bressman seems to believe the same “declining birth rates is white genocide” meme that Iowa representative Steve King has claimed repeatedly to white nationalist publications.

He also parrots old and unproven claims that immigrants and refugees are dirty, they live on welfare, and refuse to learn the culture.

Bressman on current policies and the future political gains of fascism.

The hardline immigration bill by Bob Goodlatte of Virginia was defeated twice in committee. But it should be disturbing that a governor is having private brunches with 21 year old fascists and is one of 50 governors advising the president on policy.


Omaha slumlords, Sovereign Citizens and Christian Nationalists

A self-described “free inhabitant,” Paul John Hansen represents himself in court, signing legal documents “Lawyer / Counsel without the United States.” (2011 Photo by Bill Kelly, NET News)




“He doesn’t have a driver’s license. He lives in Omaha and owns his vehicle. Paul Hansen doesn’t register it with Douglas County. If stopped for a traffic violation he’ll explain to the police officer that he “doesn’t use one.” His next step is to ask if the officer has “any evidence this land is owned by the United States of America. Do you understand that if you issue me a ticket you will be on the witness stand and you will have to produce that evidence?”” writes KVNO News in 2011 on Paul Hansen’s rising prominence in Christian nationalist and anti-tax circles. Hansen was indicted on federal mail fraud in 2014 linked to a Florida man convicted in 2006 of tax evasion and fraud by means of concealing wealth in churches.

Hansen owns multiple rundown rental properties in north Omaha that he refuses to make basic repairs on, or pay the applicable property taxes. In the last decade at least two of his properties were condemned and torn down by order of the city of Omaha. Residents point out water heaters with thick rust, non-working toilets, and doors without locks which were jammed shut with steak knives as the only means of security. One former tenant signed over their Social Security Insurance checks to cover rent, a predatory act in which Hansen was later sued for in federal court. Hansen is a slumlord and a right-wing ideologue exploiting low-income people for profit. Hansen isn’t an anomaly either. In Atlanta, a wealthy group of well-known white nationalists run a “gentrification gang” as Atlanta anti-fascists call them.

In Omaha, Hansen is a familiar figure in the Douglas County courthouse because he routinely ignores or challenges citations for building code violations on his rental properties. The Nebraska Supreme Court issued an injunction in 2014 for him to stop practicing unlicensed law, and he’s been spotted at the courthouse twice already in 2018, according to tips sent to the email.

Broadly, Hansen calls himself a “free inhabitant” or a sovereign citizen, a far-right movement often found overlapping with white separatist militia movements and Christian doomsday cults.

More specifically, Paul Hansen personally does not believe most U.S. laws apply to him based on his religion and interpretations of constitutional law, and obscure 18th-century Ordinances. Cops and court officials come into contact with these people most commonly in forms of protesting vehicle registration laws, traffic and permit citations, or the filing of civil suits and property liens.

It was a series of property liens Hansen fraudulently filed that eventually got him 18 months in federal prison on two accounts of contempt of court; the larger federal mail fraud charges resulted in a hung jury and the retrial was dismissed without prejudice. Hansen filed the false lien claims in an attempt to prevent the federal seizure of property held by Kent Hovind, the convicted Florida preacher that operated an anti-evolution theme park/church called Dinosaur Adventure Land, “a place where dinosaurs and the Bible meet.” Hovind made Hansen a trustee of his church, Creation Science Evangelism, that believes in a literal interpretation of the Bible which says Earth was made in seven days roughly 6000 years ago. The two of them exchanged letters while Hovind was incarcerated and conspired to obstruct the seizing of land by way of falsified document. The pair obviously did not understand jail mail is not confidential.

Hansen is not the first or only sovereign citizen in Nebraska. In fact, the 1980s were a boom time for the movement. Civic libertarian tax-protesters and heavily armed white separatist militias cropped up all over.

In Cairo, Nebraska in 1984, Arthur Kirk, a farmer with sympathies for a local sovereign militia was killed in a gun fight with SWAT after threatening county sheriffs trying to serve legal papers from a bank. He died behind a sandbag barricade with a modified fully automatic AR-15, wearing a gas mask, a steel helmet, and his face painted in night camouflage. The local bank alleged he made hundreds of thousands of dollars in unaccounted livestock sales.

The Posse Comitatus was a right-wing extremist group started by a neo-Nazi in Portland, Oregon with over two dozen chapters in the U.S., one being an 80-acre armed compound near Rulo, Nebraska that housed a doomsday prepper death-cult led by Michael Ryan. The Posse Comitatus supported Arthur Kirk’s fight against the tyranny of the banks and police. Posse Comitatus claimed the true intent of the country’s founders was to establish a Christian republic where the individual was sovereign, and that the Republic’s first duty was to promote, safeguard, and protect the Christian faith. They saw farmers as the victims of a Jewish-led, communist-supported conspiracy that had infiltrated the government. They thought the conspiracy would rob the farmer of his land through manipulation of land values, grain prices and credit. Once they controlled the land, Posse Comitatus thought it would control the food supply too. In Rulo, Michael Ryan proceeded over polygamist weddings, thefts of farm equipment, and carried out ritual torture, bestiality, and murder. He died in 2015 of natural causes while serving a commuted death row sentence for the grisly murders of a 5-year-old boy and 26-year-old man living on the farm. Michael Ryan was an embodiment of the white Sharia meme thirty years early.

In 2015, Donna Marie Kozak, a sovereign citizen living in the Omaha suburb of La Vista, Nebraska was convicted in federal court of tax evasion, tax fraud, and filing false liens on properties owned by a federal judge, U.S. district attorneys, IRS investigators, and for sending harassing messages to IRS agents. Kozak was essentially trolling federal agents in retaliation for her initial tax evasion arrest.

To authorities, this form of trolling protest –filing fraudulent tax returns or falsifying documents to obstruct the collection of property taxes or property seizure, or filing civil lawsuits for petty reasons– is called “paper terrorism” to add extra weight on what is otherwise just the gaming of a bureaucracy for fun and profit.









Sovereigns have manufactured their own license plates and identification cards indicating they are citizens of a self-proclaimed “republic,” and have even created otherwise fictional Native American tribes, or claimed non-existent enrollment with real tribes. One high profile example is the former Pussycat Dolls singer Kaya Jones, as she claimed generational Apache enrollment. The blonde Canadian pop singer claimed the “Indigenous” seat on the privately-funded National Diversity Coalition for Trump. These claims all fall apart under minimal scrutiny, but to the traffic cop’s first glance, the counterfeit plates and documents often appear legitimate.

The feds and the ADL consider the Sovereign Citizen movement as a potential source of “domestic terrorism.” The ADL lists sovereigns as an extremist group willing to use vigilante courts to “wage war against the government using ‘paper terrorism’ to intimidate government officials.”

Hansen says to KVNO News, “my view is there are no written laws in place to govern free inhabitants. There’s the jury of twelve and there’s God’s word,” he explained.

The ‘jury of twelve’ often referred to is a commonlaw jury convened by ‘free citizens’ rather than by a court system put in place by federal and state law.

Since the day before Hansen’s sentencing in 2015, and up to and beyond their release from prison, Hansen and Hovind have discussed on Youtube and on t heir respective blogs about convening such a court to hold their perceived enemies in the IRS responsible for putting them in jail. They want to exact revenge. By the power of whatever bizarre bureaucratic oversight god, Hansen and Hovind actually shared a cell for three months when their sentences overlapped.

Whenever he can get away with it, Hansen does not pay federal income or local property taxes. Sales taxes are trickier, since they are added to the cost of a purchase, but Hansen says he has convinced some retailers he qualifies as being exempt for paying them on some big ticket items.

Every one of his challenges to local, state and federal law rise from a set of complex political beliefs built on a complex interpretation of the Ordinance of the Northwest Territory of 1787 and the Articles of Confederation ratified by the original thirteen colonies in 1781.

“Article four in the Articles of the Confederation gives you two choices,” he explained during a lengthy conversation. “You can live your life as a free inhabitant or as a citizen. Now the word citizen means subject. So the moment I step on US land I become a US citizen, a US subject. The moment you step on my land you become my subject.” Hansen goes into much greater detail on his website. Hansen also consults and sells his self-developed legal philosophies, in spite of that Supreme Court injunction meant to stop him from doing so.

Sovereign citizens are the Boomer antecedent to Reddit “anarcho” capitalists. They take anarchist ideas against authority and add a self-excluding addendum that allows them to be exclusionary, coercive, abusive, patriarchal, violent, selfish children. “No gods, no masters” becomes “My way or the toll highway.”


Daniel Kleve: Nebraska White Supremacist Who Praises Violence Poses Unique Challenges to Campus Free Speech

REPOST NEWSWEEK Michael Edison Hayden On 2/13/18 at 12:16 PM
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) receives messages and phones calls about Daniel Kleve all the time these days. The 23-year-old undergraduate biochemistry major is a white supremacist who is overtly racist and dangerous, his classmates say. They don’t want to share classes with him, they don’t want to bump into him in a dining hall—they don’t want to see the tawny-haired man on campus ever again.

Antifascist Action Nebraska, a local group that has developed a national reputation among activists for the relentlessness with which it tracks the movements of white supremacists, published a video of Kleve speaking with other extremists on Google Hangout, and it went viral last week, further inflaming the sense of outrage about him.

“Just because I dress like a normie—a regular person—doesn’t mean I don’t love violence,” Kleve said to a group of peers regarding his ambitions as a white supremacist. “Trust me. I want to be violent. Trust me. Really violent.”

Kleve, who is fond of posting selfies with guns to social media, also said that “now is not the right time” for violence, and he has argued that the edited video took his words out of context—but the language spoke for itself to students who were already concerned about him and his demonstrable connections to neo-Nazi groups. Hundreds of students demanding Kleve’s expulsion gathered on campus grounds to stage a protest on Wednesday of last week, adding a physical presence to what was already a sustained campaign of activism.

The question about what to do with the increasingly isolated Kleve is emblematic of a larger issue facing colleges across the country. Even though the era of so-called alt-right politics that arose during the populist campaign of Donald Trump has shown signs of fracturing, it has emboldened a small but not insignificant number of young, white men to come forward with white supremacist or neo-Nazi beliefs. As this is happening, women, minorities and other communities that are threatened by the political goals of such men are becoming more sensitive to their presence, and demanding that schools take action to protect them. Young white supremacists were tied to a number of murders last year, further complicating the issue. The situation is a complex one, and it poses challenges to both administrators and to advocates of free speech.

Samantha Harris, a researcher with Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), told Newsweek that the question of whether to expel an extremist like Kleve is typically drawn along one line: All political beliefs should be tolerated in academia, but “actual harassment is not protected speech.” By “actual harassment,” Harris said she meant anything that prohibits someone from receiving a normal education.

In the case of Kleve, the university told Newsweek it was not clear he had made any threats against a specific student or students. But his classmates have told Newsweek that Kleve made them feel uneasy because they believed him to be capable of unleashing violence at any time. Additionally, Calvin Scott, 19, Kleve’s former roommate at an off-campus housing facility, and Scott’s friend, Jackie Schneider, 20, told Newsweek that Kleve made violent threats against people of color—generally and also about specific individuals. Both Scott and Schneider are people of color themselves, but neither of them are UNL students. Kleve has denied making such threats. UNL campus police told Newsweek that Kleve currently represented an active investigation, but declined to elaborate any further about what it entailed.

The issue is tricky for UNL to navigate for reasons beyond the obvious. Politicians in the Republican-dominated state have been fiercely critical of the school for what they perceive to be its mistreatment of conservatives. The state is currently reviewing a bill surrounding campus free speech, for example, one of several similar measures being examined throughout the country. The Nebraska measure, Legislative Bill 718, introduced by state Senator Steve Halloran of Hastings, would force schools like UNL to create a “Committee on Free Expression” to provide an annual incident report to state residents about free speech matters. Critics say the bill, which was issued in response to a graduate student and lecturer who gave the finger to a student who was recruiting for a conservative group, is intended to amplify only voices of Republican students on campus. In response to the incident, UNL will not renew a contract to teach issued to the graduate student who made the gesture.

In addition to this, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents has adopted its own policies to delineate areas where certain kinds of speech are permissible on campus. “When people want to censor viewpoints that people don’t like, universities have to step in and protect free speech,” Harris of FIRE argued to Newsweek, referring to both right- and left-leaning viewpoints. FIRE has defended not only conservative viewpoints on campus, but wrote a letter criticizing UNL for the way it treated the graduate student and lecturer caught up in the scandal.

Adding to UNL’s headache with Kleve is that Nebraska is a racially homogenous state. It’s nearly 90% white, according to census data. UNL said it has worked to strengthen diversity on campus, and boasted an enrollment of 3,173 minority undergraduate students in 2017, or 15.1 percent of the undergraduate total. It might not seem like very much compared to other state schools in the country, but it represents the most diverse student body in the university’s 149-year history. The growing scandal surrounding Kleve—who called himself “the most active white nationalist in the Nebraska area”—not only undercuts those gains in recruitment, but potentially puts existing minority students at risk of danger, according to critics.

“Trust me. Really violent.”

The students who claim Kleve is a danger to others argue that the school should be looking at his history to understand their concerns. He appeared in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12 in a contingent with Vanguard America, the white supremacist group whose followers included James Fields, the man charged with murdering antiracist activist Heather Heyer in a brutal car-ramming incident. He also posted photos of himself next to an Atomwaffen flag in 2017. Atomwaffen is a neo-Nazi group that has garnered headlines for being linked to a number of murders. Kleve told me he has “publicly disavowed” Atomwaffen, and no longer belongs to any white supremacist groups, but as recently as this year, he was posting white supremacist slogans on Facebook, and endorsing “the Order,” a fictional collective depicted in the neo-Nazi propaganda book The Turner Diaries.

In the book, “the Order” slaughtered Jews, non-whites and other minorities in part of a make-believe race war. The book was admired by terrorists like Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and David Copeland, a British man who murdered three people in a bombing campaign that was targeted at minorities in 1999. Keegan Hankes, an intelligence analyst with Southern Poverty Law Center, told Newsweek that people “should be concerned” about violence when dealing with those who associate with Vanguard America and Atomwaffen, even peripherally.

“Everyone has to remember that this ideology is founded on building a white ethnostate,” Hankes said. “They believe that they are fighting for the survival of the white race.”

Scott, who lived with Kleve from mid-October to the start of December 2017, told Newsweek that Kleve had an AR-15 assault rifle that he kept in a common area of their apartment. Schneider, Scott’s friend, said she saw the weapon as well but thought it was a shotgun. (She admitted to not knowing much about firearms, while Scott claimed to have a better understanding of them.) Scott also told Newsweek that Kleve kept a pistol “on him.” Nebraska is an open-carry state, and Lincoln Police confirmed to Newsweek that Kleve would be legally allowed to carry a weapon outside of campus. Kleve told Newsweek that his guns were purchased legally but would not elaborate on how many he owns, or their makes and models. He denied owning an AR-15, but declined to answer whether he owned any similar weapons that could be mistaken for one.

Scott said he didn’t report to the police about threats Kleve made because he didn’t trust them to do their job, but he reported his roommate to the housing complex, asking for a separation. A report issued by the administration of their housing complex and given to Newsweek confirmed that Scott had expressed “concerns” about his roommate at the time he lived with Kleve. Their relationship ended when Kleve moved out. Kleve claimed Scott was making up stories about him.

“Nothing has changed,” Leslie Reed, a spokesperson for the school, told Newsweek while students were protesting Kleve’s presence, regarding their hesitancy to remove him from UNL.

The University of Nebraska can’t “discriminate against someone for having unpopular political beliefs,” she said previously.

“I can’t wait to graduate so that I can get out of everyone’s hair”

Students who spoke to Newsweek about Kleve, who frequently boasts about what he believes to be his talents as a propagandist, suggested that his tactics are having the opposite of their intended impact. Kleve is not only failing to make recruiting in-roads for his cause, the students claimed, but his views have made him into a pariah on campus. On Saturday, for example, the Nebraska’s men’s basketball team waged a protest against his presence before their game with Rutgers. The men wore T-shirts that read, “Hate Will Never Win.” Student athletes across campus, in fact, have used their influence to condemn Kleve, and a search for his name on Twitter will turn up what looks like a deluge of disgust from fellow classmates.

Harris of FIRE argued to Newsweek that condemnation and debate is the best way to deal with a student like Kleve, so long as he was not harassing or endangering specific students. “The best way to combat [white supremacist advocacy] is with more speech and better ideas.” But because of Kleve’s apparent racist fixation with violence, he potentially represents a different case than other “alt-right” figures who have stirred protest on campuses.

One similar case to Kleve’s is that of Mark Daniel Neuhoff, a 27-year-old graduate student in Virginia Tech’s English department. Neuhoff’s presence on campus sparked a massive outcry in the fall semester of 2017. Posts from Neuhoff’s Facebook account that appeared to endorse white supremacy, Hitler and the Nazi application of “Jewish stars” during World War II were leaked by a local antifascist group. Students were outraged when they saw them, and their feelings were complicated by the fact that Neuhoff taught undergraduates in his capacity as a teacher’s assistant.

Virginia Tech told Newsweek that following relentless protests and phone calls, the administration and Neuhoff came to a quiet agreement that he would no longer teach there. Since that time, Neuhoff has become an outcast. He said he was grateful for the way the administration handled his case, but expressed feelings of despair and loneliness in describing his time in school there. He suggested that colleagues had ostracized him and severed all ties.

He told Newsweek that he was actually a “paleoconservative monarchist” and not a white supremacist, despite his posts appearing to praise Hitler, and claimed that his views were taken out of context. He also complained that the posts that appeared to many students to be deeply anti-Semitic were made on a locked feed, and that antifascist activists had infiltrated his account.

“It’s made me feel extremely unwelcome and I can’t wait to graduate so that I can get out of everyone’s hair and they can get out of mine,” he told Newsweek about the atmosphere of his education.

While Neuhoff longs to make an exit from academia, others on the far-right are eager to make inroads there, but so far with extremely limited success. Matthew Heimbach of Traditionalist Worker’s Party (TWP), a small but active neo-Nazi group, is attempting to start a college speaking tour called “National Socialism or Death” at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville later this month. He told Newsweek that the point of the exercise is to find common ground with “conservatives and socialists.” As with rallies staged by white supremacist Richard Spencer, though, protesters of the event are expected to outnumber his supporters. Heimbach argued that he was doing it to argue for a “safe space for fascists” in academia, but it is also unclear that fascist beliefs are really treated with any intolerance by administrators. Students like Neuhoff and Kleve are isolated, but they are also enrolled.

White supremacist speaking events come at a time when the movement is aggressively papering propaganda across American colleges. The Anti-Defamation League has documented 346 incidents of white supremacist propaganda appearing on campuses since the start of the 2016 school year, including “fliers, stickers, banners, and posters.” The incidents span 216 campuses across 44 states. Andrew Oswalt, a graduate student at Oregon State University, drew headlines for being arrested last month for a July 2017 incident in which he and other white men allegedly placed racist bumper stickers on the backs of cars, but those who monitor the far right argue that he may be an exception to the rule. Most white supremacists who target campuses do so because they feel excluded from campus life, and dismissed by intellectuals generally speaking, rather than the other way around.

The far right is a busy but ultimately small online community, at least when it comes to people who don’t operate anonymously. Neuhoff is Facebook friends with Kleve and interacts with him from time to time. He said that while Kleve is more involved with “what people call white nationalism, national socialism, and the pro-white cause in general,” he identifies with Kleve because of the degree to which they’ve been alienated from their peers in a left-leaning environment.

“Our cases are the same,” Neuhoff argued to Newsweek about Kleve. “We have views other people don’t like and they’re taking things out of context or using any possible tactic to cause us harm while trying to convince people we are violent.”

But two substantial differences exist between the complaints about Kleve and Neuhoff. Neuhoff told Newsweek that he never belonged to a white supremacist or neo-Nazi group. During the violence at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville that Saturday afternoon in August, for example, he said that he was in church. (Neuhoff is in the process of converting to Christian Orthodox after having grown up in a non-religious household.) Also, he said he doesn’t own any guns.

“The student’s viewpoint — however hateful and intolerant it is — is also protected by the First Amendment.”

Justin Myers, 18, a freshman business student at UNL and a self-described conservative, told Newsweek that while he wasn’t sure if Kleve had done enough to be “legally kicked off campus” in terms of his praise of violence, he would feel uncomfortable being anywhere near him in class.

Myers also argued that there was a difference between the campus debates about free speech between conservatives and leftists, and the threat of overt neo-Nazism. “These guys hate our system of government and the freedoms we have,” Myers said.

But for the school’s administration, Kleve is being treated like any other student.

“I have heard from many of you in our community and beyond, calling for this student to be removed from campus based on concern for safety and outright disgust and rejection of the ideologies represented,” school Chancellor Ronnie Green wrote, acknowledging that he himself “categorically rejects” such viewpoints. “The student’s viewpoint — however hateful and intolerant it is — is also protected by the First Amendment.”

Kleve, for his part, changed his tone dramatically when speaking to Newsweek via text message as the controversy on campus unfolded last week. Initially, Kleve came across as dismissive, mocking journalism, but as time went on and the controversy over his captured remarks about violence grew, his tone both to Newsweek and on social media evolved into something much more personal and anxious. He said that he valued his education, and looked forward to becoming a doctor.

“I have never claimed to be perfect,” Kleve wrote on Facebook while criticizing a local news article that mentioned him being arrested at the age of 17 for possession of marijuana. “I lived in different foster homes from the moment of my birth and grew up in a degenerate environment.”

As he posted those remarks, the anger about him only seemed to grow online.

“EXPEL DAN KLEVE,” a woman wrote on Twitter late Thursday morning after the school had posted its explanation for not taking action. “Get rid of Dan Kleve,” another female student pleaded a few hours later on the site. Fifteen minutes after that, a male student piped in: “Kleve is in violation of the student code of conduct. He should be removed for the safety of all.”

Kleve finally acknowledged on his Twitter account on Monday what he would not tell Newsweek in multiple conversations over text message: The sustained campaign to expel him, the local news reports on his situation and the silent treatment he had received from other classmates had driven him to the point of despair.

“I feel exactly how my enemy wants me to feel,” Kleve wrote in the context of saying that he would not give up his politics. “Alone, powerless, and void of any hope for the future.”

University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Neo-Nazi Safe Space

University of Nebraska-Lincoln are aware they have a campus neo-Nazi problem. This is not disputed. They are “aware of the situation” with Daniel Kleve, a 23 year old junior biology major, and have reaffirmed this awareness in email and phone calls many times since August 19, 2017, a week after Dan Kleve attended the deadly “Unite the Right” rally. UNL knew six days after he was photographed with other Vanguard America members attacking someone from a group of anti-racist clergy with his large metal flashlight on the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia. UNL knew there was an armed self-identifying neo-Nazi on campus planning revenge on students he suspected had alerted the administration.


In a Google Hangouts video chat hosted by Blake Lucca, Kleve tells the others “Trust me, I want to be violent. Trust me. Really violent. But now is not the time. So we need to build ourselves up. We need to be disciplined … so that when the time comes, we can, you know, do what needs to be done basically.”

UNL STUDENTS ORGANIZED AGAINST HATE ON CAMPUS. EVENT DETAILS FOR WEDNESDAY FEB 7 follow on twitter @UNLagainstHate and the hashtag #notatUNL. Daily Nebraskan coverage of the large rally.


The UNL administration looked the other way and hoped everyone else would too. University of Nebraska is aware it is putting students and the city of Lincoln at risk by doing nothing to address a student organizing others for violence and advocating for racist genocide.

UNL has taken such a stance because they are afraid, but not of Daniel. They are afraid of the backlash they received from the governor and state legislators about the more palatable young conservative group Turning Point USA getting “harassed” by a grad student for tabling stale piss Reaganomics during a recruiting drive. The University fired the student-lecturer for expressing an opinion after a pressure campaign by TP USA; both the news director and chief communication and marketing officers resigned.

On September 12, one month after the Unite the Right, the Lincoln city council proposed a resolution against hate. Two people spoke against the resolution: Katie Mullen, the TP USA student that cost three people their jobs, and Dan Kleve “who identifies himself with the white nationalist movement.” Mullen said she fears police could “come to my door for standing up for freedom.”

UNL is outright protecting a violent self-identifying white nationalist because they’re scared of bad press backlash from some young republicans.

Always punch Nazis? Absolutely.

Diversity of tactics? Definitely.

Richard Spencer was punched on January 20, 2017 because he was on a street corner surrounded by fawning mainstream media during a major event. It was a punch of opportunity, but it wasn’t the first or only attack. In fact, the moments before the punch heard ’round the world, Spencer explained some of the other tactics used against him: “We expect protesters with their Silly String or something like that, but we’ve entered this new world.” Likewise, strategic attacks against neo-fascist infrastructure are often overlooked or unseen for their lack of sensationalism. When a neo-Nazi is punched, it gives them the veil of victimhood and with it comes pity money and another platform. However, if the ground work is set and the fundraising and media platforms have already removed them or are otherwise restrictive to those spreading hate, the self-imposed victimization only projects their base weakness. When you punch a Nazi, the whole world punches with you.

“Power is now in infrastructure” as Invisible Committee put it in To Our Friends. It is not as easy to overthrow infrastructure like it is kings and dictators. Infrastructure doesn’t drink poison or fall from bullets. It is, however, easier to blockade chokepoints of capitalist infrastructure. Applying anti-capitalist tactics used against resource extraction infrastructure to also hem up and deplatform fascist activity and funding is another prong in anti-fascist work. Pressure campaigns have seen success in pushing the tech sector to act in refusing to provide platforms for hate.

Daniel Kleve’s deplatformed list is a long one. Beginning with an exit poll interview he gave to Norfolk’s Nebraska News Channel that he claims got him fired from a job at Coca-Cola, ironic given Coke’s favorable proximity to the Third Reich. Whether it was his poor work ethic or opinions that got him fired, it was only the first. The gaming chat platform Discord, which Unicorn Riot claimed “most, or all, of the organizations involved in Unite the Right actively use Discord in their everyday work, the platform has been described as having a monopoly on the internal communications of the modern white supremacist movement.” Kleve’s previous chat servers and handle on Discord were deleted after it was leaked he wanted to “go Turner Diaries” on fellow students. (A reference to the 1978 novel about militant white separatists starting a race war, authored by Holocaust denier William Pierce.)

Kleve lost his Twitter account @racialtheocracy after the recognition ADL gave to the Facebook hate group he operated under the same name. Kleve was removed from IndieGoGo for raising a little money to attend the Unite the Right, and was twice removed from Paypal. The alt-right parallel to GoFundMe called “GoyFundMe” lost their webhost for promotion of hate groups, and with it Kleve and many others lost their donations that was potentially just a front for a Spanish shipping container company the whole time?
Kleve has three Facebook accounts because at least one is always in a 30-day suspension. Soundcloud removed his low-energy attempt at a Vanguard America podcast, and the bad optics played a part in Vanguard severing ties not only with him, but those he recruited and vouched for as well. His application to Identity Evropa was rejected, but not before they got some free labor out of him, which shouldn’t have been a surprise after he mockingly counter-signaled the group with an embarrassingly small flash mob at a church in Antioch, Tennessee during the weekend of cringe “White Lives Matter” protests that were outnumbered and shut down by local anti-racists in two neighboring towns.
Evident here are the chokepoints of tech infrastructure even for a relative nobody attempting to climb the white nationalist social stratum, but not all points of conflict are blockaded with the same effort.

For example, Kleve’s university is painfully aware of the violent acts he committed in Charlottesville, Va, the racist violence his group initiated in Brentwood, Tn, and the threats he’s made to students, but administration has looked the other way at every step. Punching him does not expel him from university because the public relations department would rather coddle violent fascists than be shunned for taking proactive steps in securing the safety of their students and a future for their funding.

Gary “Gerhard” Lauck, the Farm Belt Fuhrer of Fairbury, NE

Gary Lauck, aka Gerhard Lauck, aka the Farm Belt Führer, aka Grandpa Fascism, aka the Stuttering Anti-Semite, lives in Fairbury, NE. Some of our crew have encountered him at past NSM rallies, probably most recently in 2002 on the Topeka, Kansas statehouse steps, but it is likely there have been more recent brushes considering his Fairbury neighbors have a laissez-faire attitude to his existence, and he has toned down his image since reportedly getting mailbombed. He grew out the side of his Hitler mustache as he grew eldery.

On July 6, 2017, The Guardian ran an unprompted long-form piece fawning on Lauck’s rather mediocre history, yet large influence in neo-Nazi culture. He ceased being even locally newsworthy at the end of the 20th century, after returning to the U.S. following a four-year sentence in a Hamburg, Germany prison for violation of hate crime laws related to distribution of Nazi literature across Europe, and false identification papers in Denmark. He continues hosting Nazi propaganda websites in the U.S. to circumvent European laws, and still runs a mail order book store for out-of-print Nazi and books from a PO Box in Fairbury. That’s the extent of his 64 years. Sad!

In August, days after the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA, Brent Fox, an organizer of the Daily Stormer ‘book club’ announced he had contacted Lauck and set up two websites. By Thanksgiving, Daniel Kleve was posting on Facebook that he was having dinner with someone presumed to be Lauck, as that’s who he receives reading material from. At the beginning of December, Lauck and the Stormer group began promoting their websites and tying it to the “It’s Okay to be White” 4chan campaign. The websites are a new direction for Lauck, as they greatly tone down the neo-Nazi imagery and rhetorical white nationalist screeds, which fit well with the middling cowardice of the IOTBW approach.


Cooper Ward, Omaha white nationalist

On December 16th, 2016, we submitted a report to It’s Going Down on the once rising alt-right media darling Cooper Ward. At the time of the report, Cooper was enrolled at University of Nebraska-Omaha, was a regular guest on the podcast The Daily Shoah, deputy director of American Vanguard (aka Reaction America, aka Vanguard America, aka Patriot Front), and the content creator for the Counter-Signal Memes for Fashy Goys page on Facebook.

We had an eye on Cooper for months before his grand coming out party. It was in the comments of his meme page where he posted an obscured selfie but forgot to blur the Nebraska license plate of his car parked in his mom’s driveway. He made appearances at pre-election anti-Trump rallies in the Omaha metro in failed attempts to “trigger timid shitlibs” by using genius brain skills gained from his partial philosophy degree. His bearded, lumbering appearance and stammering lines of questioning at these rallies didn’t go unnoticed, but wasn’t the masterful trolling he considered it to be. It wasn’t until Cooper unmasked himself on his Youtube channel feeling emboldened by the election of Trump, and freshly shaved with a bleached combover, that he began airing his sick owns on The Bone Zone. It was then we realized the podcasting memelord and the tall awkward guy at rallies we already knew by name were one in the same.

On November 8, the Vanguard Nebraska account tweeted a photo of a group holding the flag. When a community radio dj reposted it, she says many people contacted her to say they were tricked into holding it by two guys claiming in was in support of U.S. troops. The photo was taken sometime in the late summer of 2016 while Jesse “SeventhSonTRS” Dunstan visited Cooper in Omaha. The local tv news quoted the false claim of 100 Vanguard members in Nebraska in a Twitter interview with the person running the Vanguard Nebraska account, and calling himself Sam Hyde, the name of a comedian attached to the alt-right famous for being named as a suspect after mass shootings.

Less than two weeks after we exposed what he already laid bare, Cooper began denying the claims made against him in emails to IGD, later proposing a quid pro quo that if they deleted the post, he would identify other hosts of The Daily Shoah and recede from public life faster than his hairline.

On January 9th, the new semester at UNO began and students were met with a flurry of flyers alerting them of the threat Ward’s racist, genocidal ideology posed on campus. The same day he dropped all his classes and retreated back to his mom’s McMansion in West Omaha.

A full timeline of the month-long domino effect we caused in The Right Stuff podcasting empire is documented on the blog Angry White Men.

Below is the first statement originally posted to IGD, and the follow-up where Cooper Ward offered to snitch. If only more fascists believed in the noble creed of death before dishonor.

The response from the /pol/ chans lit up with fear, anger, and disgust that their heroes weren’t who they claimed to be, and had to find out from their ideological enemies. Natural to the environment of 4chan and 8chan, each dox let a thousand conspiracy theories bloom. Claims that Cooper used TRS and Vanguard America meet-ups as a way to groom underage boys for sex, to the idea that because Mike “Enoch” Peinovich was married to a Jewish woman and lived on the Upper East Side of New York City he couldn’t possibly be a “real” white nationalist, and must be a CIA ‘controlled opposition’ asset meant to cause rifts in their movement. Whether Peinovich actually separated with his wife isn’t much of anyone else’s concern, but it certainly made their professional lives harder. If Ward was really grooming children, we have not seen any reports of victims coming forward yet (and they might forever be silenced out of fear), but it was a serious enough concern for Vanguard America to set an 18 and over membership requirement shortly afterwards.


We have entered an era where the disgusting and vile approach of once-closeted fascists and racists has become an accepted norm on the American stage. The normalization has begun, with excuses by not only the right, but also the liberals who believe the hatred espoused by these “people” is “freedom of speech.” Are they so blind to not understand that the fascist calls from behind their podium of lies is a recruiting tool? Are they so blind to not understand that this hatred espoused by these Nazis rallies their forces, and influences other white nationalist individuals to partake in lone wolf direct action?

We believe in silencing the hate speech of these shadowy organizations as a defensive action for all marginalized people forced to hide in fear. We believe in direct action to defend all communities that may find themselves threatened.

As Antifascist Action-Nebraska, we have dedicated our work towards hunting down and exposing these Alt-Right Nazis.

We have chosen to expose the Deputy Leader of American Vanguard who is an Omaha resident. American Vanguard is a White Nationalist organization responsible for the poster/flyer campaigns at Purdue University, Florida Gulf Coast University, the University of Maryland as well as street corners across the country under their “Northern Propaganda Campaign”.

This is a war, they fired the first shots, now all people of conscience must join with us and fight the scourge of Nazism.

Cooper Ward is the co-host of the alt-right Nazi Podcast “The Daily Shoah”, as well as a member and deputy leader of the nationwide white nationalist group American Vanguard. It is believed that Cooper Ward acts as a recruiter for American Vanguard.

Ward operates out of his mom’s home in Omaha, Nebraska. Ward has been printing white nationalist posters and distributing them. We in Nebraska have begun to see these posters on our street corners, joining with a myriad of other cities and states who have been infected with American Vanguard propaganda.

In solidarity.
Antifascist Action-Nebraska



Nebraska – Kansas NSM Neo-Nazi James Ludacka

James Ludacka is a Plains regional captain for National Socialist Movement. He prefers to go by Jim when he speaks to media. Ludacka lives in Scandia, Kansas approximately 20 miles south of the Nebraska-Kansas border, and about 2 hours south of Lincoln. One of his three brothers, Joel, unsuccessfully tried to rob a bank in their little hometown of Mead, which is about halfway between Omaha and Lincoln; approximately 30 minutes either direction. He was released in 2015 and lives in Wahoo.

Jim has long been known to anti-fascists in Kansas and Missouri for being instrumental in organizing NSM rallies against non-white immigration in Topeka, KS in 2002, Omaha, NE in 2007, and Kansas City, MO in 2013. Ludacka claimed immigrants were stealing jobs. As of the 2010 census, Scandia has 350 people and is 98.9 percent white. Mead has 550 people and 98.1 percent white. Ludacka only sees poor white people in small towns, so of course he thinks someone that doesn’t look like him is at fault.

Many thanks to the Missouri anti-fascists, and also the tip from @don_chump of Restoring the Honor blog for getting his ID from photos taken in Shelbyville, TN during the “White Lives Matter” rally on October 28, 2016. Here he was spotted with a Huskers football patch on his battle vest at the police checkpoint. Counter protesters and media were not allowed anything that might be a weapon such as flagpoles and camera mono/tripods. The white nationalist groups had shields, helmets, and mic stands.


Also in attendance with the NSM were the League of the South, disrobed Klansmen, the Traditional Workers Party, and a handful of Vanguard America members. Here’s TWP’s Matt Heimbach giving an interview and there’s Ludacka on the right and directly center in the back is Daniel Kleve, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln biochemistry major and member of Vanguard America.


Here’s Ludacka with NSM “commander” Jeff Schoep, with the “White Lives Matter” rally organizer Brad Griffin aka Hunter Wallace and again, Daniel Kleve in the background.

After the failed White Lives Matter rally, around 20 members of TWP and Vanguard America, including Heimbach and Kleve, started a fight with an interracial couple at bar in suburban Nashville. The following day, Kleve and four others harassed parishioners of the Burnette Chapel in Antioch, TN to prove “white people are under attack” after a Sudanese-born man shot six people and killed one at the church in a domestic assault case. The alt-right claim it was a “reverse Dylann Roof” situation. On Kleve’s short-lived low energy Vanguard podcast he refers to him as “Saint Dylann Roof” in the first episode.

Ludacka has the neo-Nazi version of Benjamin Button’s reverse aging.

Here is Ludacka in 2002 looking like he has one foot in the grave selling swastika armbands just before the rally on the Topeka statehouse steps. Maybe the beard just hides the look of death better.

Ludacka on his way into the Topeka rally showing his “Dump Israel” sign. 

November 9 2013, Kansas City MO federal courthouse. The NSM and Klan held a Midwest convergence and Ludacka embarrassed his commander Jeff Schoep in what he later called the “unfriendly city” by pulling in fewer than 50 people, and were countered by 300-400 anti-racists.


Vanguard America now podcasting from Lincoln, NE

Vanguard America are splintering just as predicted in the fallout after James Fields rammed his car into the back of an anti-racist march in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing Heather Heyer and injuring 19 others.

James Alex Fields, Jr (left) standing in formation with Vanguard America, Charlottesville, VA, August 12, 2017

In the weeks that followed, the national organization desperately tore itself in multiple directions. They claimed to have no knowledge of Fields despite photos of him marching in formation dressed in the Chad Nationalist uniform and shield, then attempted to rebrand about once a week for 6 weeks, eventually splintering into two camps. Richard Spencer, in a post on AltRight dot com we will not link to directly, suggested dropping the swastikas in favor of the “Betsy Ross flag” because “the meaning is the same.” Spencer’s National Policy Institute has often enlisted Vanguard America as an auxiliary security force alongside his personal bodyguards. Patriot Front splintered from Vanguard America; the former taking Spencer’s optics advice, and the latter going all in with white power Celtic crosses and fasces.

Vanguard now has a podcast. It is being poorly recorded in a small off-campus apartment in Lincoln, Nebraska by UNL junior Daniel Kleve. In Charlottesville, Kleve was assigned to Baked Alaska’s security detail and is using that experience to tell himself he is a rising star in the alt-right.

In May 2017, Soundcloud deplatformed the alt-lite’s trust fund CHUD, Richard Spencer from using their service and certainly will not abide neo-Nazis using their platform to recruit. Click here to file a ticket for reporting a Terms of Service violation of hate speech. Copy/paste this when prompted
