Leader of Utah Surveillance Firm Is a Former KKK Member Involved in a Past Synagogue Shooting

In 2018, Utah officials hired a company to provide massive surveillance of 911 calls, traffic cameras and social media posts. Now, the Utah attorney general’s office will suspend the state’s use of the surveillance system after learning that the founder of the company is a former KKK member.

Nursing homes around the country are struggling as they house one of the most vulnerable groups when it comes to COVID-19. Leave it to a potential white supremacist to only add to that struggle.

White Supremacist Who Tried to Blow Up Kansas City Hospital Plotted With Active Duty Army Soldier

Whether its crowding beaches, prioritizing “freedom over health” or, in this case, just being truly vile human beings, white people seem intent on making this pandemic worse than it already is.

ABC News reports that a white supremacist who had plans to blow up a Kansas City hospital currently dealing with the coronavirus epidemic was in talks with an active duty member of the U.S Army. Timothy...

White Supremacists Had Plans to Weaponize Coronavirus: Even Amid a Global Pandemic, They Choose Hate

White Supremacists Had Plans to Weaponize Coronavirus: Even Amid a Global Pandemic, They Choose Hate

President Donald Trump may be stoking the flames of racism and xenophobia by repeatedly referring to the coronavirus as the “Chinese virus,” but it appears white supremacists have been contradicting that narrative for some time by attempting to adopt the virus as their bioweapon of choice.

Yahoo News reported that federal investigators have been monitoring communications on the messaging app...

What Better Way to Celebrate the Last Day of Black History Month Than...a Conference Honoring the Confederacy?

What Better Way to Celebrate the Last Day of Black History Month Than...a Conference Honoring the Confederacy?

On the last day of Black History Month, America sent to me... a white nationalist event honoring the Confederacy. (You should have been singing this in the tune of “12 Days of Christmas” in case that wasn’t clear.)

Huffington Post reported that a North Carolina branch of the Hilton Hotel franchise will be hosting an annual event put on by the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a group devoted to...

Good News Everyone: A Federal Investigation Results in Sentencing for 64 White Supremacists

Good News Everyone: A Federal Investigation Results in Sentencing for 64 White Supremacists

Y’all, I simply love reporting on the failures of white supremacists. It’s probably a top 3 favorite thing for me besides food and talking to anyone who will listen about why Def Jam: Fight For NY is easily a top 5 fighting game of all time.

The Spokesman-Review reports that 64 various members of white nationalist gangs in North Texas have been sentenced to a collective 820 years. That...

Navy Yard Worker Gets 6 Months for Lying About Being A White Nationalist

Navy Yard Worker Gets 6 Months for Lying About Being A White Nationalist

White nationalists are dumb. I don’t think that’s a particularly controversial statement. If you’re going to lie about being a white nationalist on an application to work for the federal government, perhaps don’t post pictures on Facebook proving that you’re a white nationalist.

NBC News reports that Fred Arena, a 41-year-old Navy yard worker, has been sentenced to six months in prison for...

Released today (h/t the Associated Press), the report from the ADL’s Center on Extremism tracked propaganda incidents across 49 states. In total, the anti-bias group counted 2,713 cases of white...

FBI Elevates Racial Extremists to 'National Threat Priority'

FBI Elevates Racial Extremists to 'National Threat Priority'

It’s crazy, y’all. I feel like four years ago we warned that if ol’ boy got elected it would embolden the worst of our society to do some heinous things. According to the FBI, unfortunately, we were right.

FBI director, Christopher Wray, has said that racially motivated violent extremists (read:white nationalists) have been elevated to a “national threat priority.” This designation places the...

Nazi Tears: Christopher Cantwell Arrested by FBI

According to NBC News, Christopher Cantwell has been arrested by the FBI and indicted on counts of...

It’s MLK Day Everywhere but Virginia. They’re Doing a Gun Rally Complete With Neo-Nazis Instead

It’s MLK Day Everywhere but Virginia. They’re Doing a Gun Rally Complete With Neo-Nazis Instead

This Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It’s a day of remembrance when we honor one of the most renowned civil rights leaders in U.S. history. A man who certainly stood for peace, but, most of all, equality and justice. A man who is often made out to be synonymous with non-violent protest. In Richmond, Va., on the state capitol, a massive event has been planned that will be perfectly...

DC Fire Department Launches Investigation After Picture Surfaces of Recruits Flashing Possible White Power Signs

DC Fire Department Launches Investigation After Picture Surfaces of Recruits Flashing Possible White Power Signs

I’ve never been a gang member or a white supremacist before, but apparently hand gestures come along with the territory. But while I rarely hear of anyone losing their job for being affiliated with the Crips or Bloods, unless you’re the president of the United States, blatant racism is typically grounds for immediate termination.

To that end, the D.C. Fire Department might have a racist, or...

Less than two weeks after a new, bulletproof Emmett Till memorial plaque went up on the banks of the Tallahatchie River in Mississippi, a group of white supremacists was captured on camera attempting to film a propaganda video.

The footage came from a new surveillance system that accompanied

the redesigned memorial , Patrick Weems, executive director of the Emmett Till Memorial Commission,

White Supremacist Pacification Is a Hollywood Burden

White Supremacist Pacification Is a Hollywood Burden

The trailer for Burden has arrived and I’m fucking tired.

From the film’s official press release:

When a museum celebrating the Ku Klux Klan opens in a small South Carolina town, the idealistic Reverend Kennedy (Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker) resolves to do everything in his power to prevent long-simmering racial tensions from boiling over. But the members of Kennedy’s...

Police Say a Nazi Leader Was Preparing for a ‘Race War.’ Of Course, They Let Him Go

Law enforcement officials seized a cache of weapons from an admitted leader of one of the deadliest white supremacist groups in America, who informed state authorities that he was prepping for a “race war.” Canadian authorities had already banned the gun-carrying white supremacist from entering the country because he was involved in a terrorist organization. But when the acclaimed racist...

Just ‘Despicable’: Actor Dressed as Gru From Despicable Me Fired After Making Racist Gesture in Pic With Biracial Child

Just ‘Despicable’: Actor Dressed as Gru From Despicable Me Fired After Making Racist Gesture in Pic With Biracial Child

Full disclosure: I love Despicable Me with the hilarious, sometimes anti-hero, Gru and all his Minions. But a child’s family vacation featuring some of her favorite movie characters from the film was marred when an actor dressed as Gru made a racist gesture while posing in a picture with the little girl.

Just despicable.

“I’ve been emotionally distraught about it. I’m still pretty upset that...

The Only Coup in U.S. History Was Orchestrated by White Supremacists

The Only Coup in U.S. History Was Orchestrated by White Supremacists

Donald Trump ratcheted up his veiled threats of a looming civil war on Tuesday night, tweeting that an upcoming impeachment inquiry was akin to a “coup.”

The claim is ludicrous on its face, but given the nature of Trump and his supporters’ feedback loop, many outlets felt forced to give the dictionary definition of what a coup d’état is (“the violent overthrow or alteration of an existing...

Signs of Hate: ‘OK’ Hand Gesture and Dylann Roof’s Bowl-Cut Considered New Symbols of White Supremacy

Signs of Hate: ‘OK’ Hand Gesture and Dylann Roof’s Bowl-Cut Considered New Symbols of White Supremacy

It started out as a way to troll the so-called liberal media, borne out of alt-right posts on message board 4chan. Now, according to Jewish civil rights organization the Anti-Defamation League, the “OK” hand symbol has gone from prank to a hate symbol associated with white supremacy.

The gesture joins 35 other symbols added to the ADL’s “Hate on Display” database, announced on Thursday....

Department of Homeland Security Prioritizes White Supremacy as a Threat: ‘Has No Place in the United States of America’

Department of Homeland Security Prioritizes White Supremacy as a Threat: ‘Has No Place in the United States of America’

The Department of Homeland Security has a very specific mission: to ensure the safety of the United States. That means implementing cybersecurity measures, protecting our borders from unlawful entry, and eliminating domestic threats like Arby’s. OK, maybe not eliminating Arby’s, but for the first time since its inception, its list of priorities includes an obvious threat that’s been wreaking...

Taylor Swift Claims She Had No Idea She Was a White Supremacist Icon Because She ‘Didn’t Have the Internet’ on Her Phone

Taylor Swift Claims She Had No Idea She Was a White Supremacist Icon Because She ‘Didn’t Have the Internet’ on Her Phone

As some of the largest and most respected news outlets in America (unless you count Fox News, which is huge in Whitekanda) reported that alt-right and Neo-Nazi groups were celebrating Taylor Swift as the idealized Aryan Goddess, the unseasoned singer of hits I could probably Google if my computer browser didn’t have a “bullshit blocker” extension, claims she didn’t know she had become...
