Last week, we wrote about an upcoming open carry rally and the thinly veiled racist and fascist connections of its organizer and top speaker. Today, the university has responded by ordering that they "cease and desist from advertising a planned rally on campus" due to the fact that the organizer, Kaitlin Bennett, has failed to properly register and gain university approval for the event.
(UR) - Pretoria, South Africa – The narrative of oppressed “white farmers” in South Africa, now being promoted by US President Trump, is a decades-old neo-Nazi and white supremacist talking point. In fact, current proponents of the South African ‘white genocide’ narrative lie at the intersection of international alt-right and white supremacist networks.
Our collective was recently alerted to the fact that a Corrections Officer named Jeff Lecouris who claims on public social media to be employed by the Indiana Department of Corrections, has also posted pictures on public social media platforms of himself wearing Nazi uniforms, his extensive collection of Nazi memorabilia such as Hitler photos, Hitler stamps, World War II era medals and pins, and more. This is coupled with a troubling series of posts in which he displays a penchant for violence, misogyny, and a general disregard for the humanity of Prisoners. Because he was generous enough to provide this information on public forum, we have collated it into the article below.
For those lucky enough to have never heard of him, Joey Gibson is the leader of the violent, far-right gang, Patriot Prayer. He is also a frequent suitor of other hate groups including the self-described "western chauvinist" Proud Boys and the openly white supremacist Identity Evropa.
Now it appears that Gibson, fresh off the heels of an embarrassingly unsupported run for a US Senate seat, will be showing his face in our very own Great Lakes/Midwest region next month. He is scheduled to speak at an open carry rally at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio on Saturday, September 29th.

For over 60 years Jakiw Palij has lived a mostly quiet life in America. But on June 9th, 2004 Palij was stripped of U.S. citizenship in Immigration Court after he was exposed as a guard at the Trawniki labor camp where over 6,000 Jews were murdered during a massacre in 1943. Palij was found to have lied about his involvement on his subsequent visa application.
On a warm, June afternoon in Marion County, Indiana, Ashley McNeil walked cheerfully home after doing some light shopping at a convenience store near her house. The year was 2001, and the 13-year old McNeil had no idea what was to transpire as she bounded through the door to head home. Shortly before, a 21-year old self-admitted Neo-Nazi named Trevor Thompson (A.K.A. Trey Hooligan, D.O.B. 09/07/1980) had argued on the street with several Black men in the nearby area. Thompson was a habitual methamphetamine user and had been awake for three days straight, spoiling for a fight. To that end, he was driving around the area and targeting people of color (POC) with impunity for his rage. Thompson was and is a career racist, having strong ties to the Hammerskins and the World Church of the Creator World Church of the Creator. However, he failed to gain ground with the adult POC with whom he had argued. Instead, he drove around town looking for easier targets. It was then, that he spotted Ashley McNeil. Perhaps it was the slightness of her teenage frame, or spring in her step that caught his eye? We may never know what caught his attention, but we do know what provoked his ire. Ashley is Black, and so Thompson drove up to where she was walking near Keystone and Hanna, and leaned out of the window of his car. He pointed a gun at the terrified child, and he fired it. The bullet struck Ashley in the hip, missing an artery by only a few inches, narrowly sparing her life.
(BoingBoing) - The Illinois Republican Party was unable to draft a candidate against Holocaust denier Arthur Jones, and now he's won the Republican primary in Illinois' Third Congressional District. Jones is a former member of the American Nazi Party and, as a student at the University of Wisconsin, founded a conservative newspaper and was active in the Young Republicans and a Nationalist Socialist student group. The good news is that the Third Congressional District is heavily Democratic, but in these crazy times of Russian meddling and the refusal of the White House to disavow American Nazis, there's no telling who will win.
