Meet The Oregon Chapter of American Freedom Party!

When you hit a home run, you really hit a home run. Case in point: our comrades from Portland who have crafted a devastating rogues gallery of the key players in the Oregon chapter of the “American Freedom Party.” In part one, they detail the history of the American Freedom Party and the roots of “third position” political parties.  If you’re coming into this situation cold, this is an essential read.

In part two of their series, they put names to faces. We are happy to re-post the entirety of their article here.

Meet the Oregon Chapter of American Freedom Party: Part Two

He and his wife Laura Cole (neé Bailey) moved to Portland in late June of 2012 from Mission Viejo, California. Rose City Antifascists welcome any tips about his current employment, if he is in fact employed outside of his White Nationalist organizing.

Chapman is listed as the contact person on the website for the Oregon chapter of Free America Rally, and is involved with Council of Conservative Citizens, a paleoconservative white nationalist political organization.The 26 year old man attempted to attend the latest David Irving event in Portland with Tyler Cole before it was shut down by RCA and antifascist allies. Chapman’s last known address is literally 3 doors down from Tyler and Laura Cole.Rose City Antifascists wish to distinguish this Devin Chapman from the famous local Barista Champion by the same name. Rose City Antifascists welcome information about Devin Chapman the fascist, particularly any information about his current employment.

Laura Cole (neé Bailey)  Last Known Address: 498 N 12th St Saint Helens, OR 97051-1318
Phone Number: 503-366-4432
Work Address: Columbia Community Mental Health (Cornerstone Housing Program) 271 Columbia Blvd. St Helens, OR 97051
Work Phone Number: 503-397-0391Cole is an active proponent of white nationalism along side her husband, Tyler. The couple is often seen together at demonstrations with their young child, attempting to present a family-friendly face to their fascist organization. Laura is featured in many of the propaganda videos for AFP. Disturbingly, this ardent white supremacist is a marriage and family therapist working in the St. Helens area. We believe that Laura Cole should not be working in this capacity both for the sake of people of color, queer people, or Jewish people that may inadvertently end up with a white supremacist counselor, and because she is providing the primary source of income supplying Oregon AFP’s leadership. Depriving her of this job will be a major blow to AFP’s ability to organize

Rebecca Hughes (Barrett)Rebecca–who uses the last names “Hughes” and “Barrett”– took the lead in the AFP invasion of the anti-war demonstration in Portland on September 9th 2013 . It is unclear what the purpose of that effort was. It is not unprecedented in Portland for liberal left movements to embrace, or at least turn a blind eye to, the antisemitic or racist politics of people attending their protests. For example Tim Calvert, who we wrote about here and Dave Westerlund, who we mentioned here have both enjoyed support from the Portland left. While it is possible that AFP was hoping to pick up some racist liberals, a much more likely scenario was that AFP’s attendance at the anti-war demonstration was simply an attempt to add to their propaganda of being persecuted as white people. AFP emphasized how “intolerant” the liberals were in their reports of the event.Rebecca is a follower of Christian Identity, a belief system which posits white people as the true inheritors of the word of God. Hughes represents a group called the Nationalist Movement, which is a Mississippi-based Christian Identity political formation.We are interested in any information about Rebecca. We suspect that her real last name is “Hughes”, while “Barrett” is a pseudonym referring to the white supremacist founder of the Nationalist Movement, Richard Barrett. We believe Rebecca moved to Portland from Williamsburg, VA. She is listed as a “biology/chemistry student” on her Nationalist.org profile. She may be a student at Portland State University in a program related to those subjects. She may be living in the St. John’s area. In late 2013, Nationalist.org was hacked, defaced and shut down by Anonymous as part of #OpAntifa, but not before these photos of Rebecca surfaced:

Kyle BrewsterBrewster was one of the three members of East Side White Pride and White Aryan Resistance who murdered Ethiopian immigrant Mulugeta Seraw in Portland on November 13, 1988. Seraw was beaten with a baseball bat and left in a pool of his own blood. He died early the next morning. According to another one of the murderers, Ken “Death” Mieske (now deceased), they murdered Seraw “because of his race”.Brewster was convicted of manslaughter and was sentenced to fifteen years in prison. He was released in November, 2002 and was scheduled to complete his parole in 2008. He violated his parole in 2006 by associating with the white power gang, Volksfront. We have written extensively about Volksfront. Volksfront members have numerous acts of racist violence under their belts, including their 2003 murder of a homeless man in Tacoma, Washington.Brewster was re-released from prison on December 18, 2007 but he was re-arrested within hours on an assault charge related to an attack on a guard during his latest prison stay.

Jimmy Marr
Marr is a long time member of the National Socialist Movement (NSM). In 2009 Marr represented the NSM at the Pacifica Forum, an antisemitic discussion group in Eugene, OR. Marr’s event titled “The National Socialist Movement: An Inside View of America’s Far Right” served as a recruiting opportunity for the NSM, complete with Nazi saluting and seig heiling. In particular Marr focused on his hatred for Jews and his view that immigration is diluting the white gene pool in the United States. During the question and answer period Marr made this clear, “You’re goddamn right I object to Jews! They’re traitors!” Marr also described Martin Luther King, Jr. as a “moral leper and communist dupe”.Marr recently was the keynote speaker at a rally for the white supremacists colonizing Leith, North Dakota. Marr appears to be the main mover and shaker behind the banner drops that AFP has engaged in locally. Marr made both the  “Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white” banner that was dropped in Eugene on September 2nd 2013 and the “Diversity is a code word for white genocide” banner used in Portland on December 12th 2013.

aka Sean Saunders (legal spelling above, the alternate is used as an alias)Saunders appears in a large number of the photos of AFP and FAR gatherings. He hangs out with violent white supremacists such as Christian Coats of the Stumptown Bootboys, who we mentioned previously here. Saunders himself has mostly stuck to petty theft and drug related crimes, including a 2009 robbery charge he served time for.  His affiliations with both the AFP and the Stumptown Bootboys bonehead crew are concerning. Rose City Antifascists would appreciate more information about his white supremacist activity and affiliations.

He and three other white nationalists recently staged a protest in Seattle at an immigration rights rally. Manny boasts in videos that he is the leader of the Washington White Citizen Support group. He is reportedly working on an Associate’s degree and has expressed interest in starting a White Student Union at his college. Manny appears to be the mouthpiece for the Seattle area Free America Rally.

This Just In: International Meeting against fascism and racism, Athens, October 5-6, 2013

International Meeting against fascism and racism, Athens, October 5-6, 2013
Faced with the rising threat of neo-Nazism, a new resistance movement unfolds and struggles to stop it before it’s too late. On January 19, in Athens and in over 40 countries, thousands marched against fascism and racism, as a signal that the hope that struggles bring can defeat despair and fear.Increasingly, governments are playing the card of racism  blaming immigrants for their dead-end crisis and mass unemployment. They want to turn immigrants into scapegoats for their bankruptcy.

Neo-nazis are bred by racism, the policies that build concentration camps for FRONTEX and the closure of the borders fortress Europe. They are also bred by the intensity of “anti-crime” policing, which governments attribute it to immigration, instead of blaming the poverty and misery that their policies bring. The neo-Nazis attempt to attract angry voters in a period of severe political crisis and undermining of democratic rights.

It’s time to escalate, to strengthen and coordinate all over Europe and the world our common steps to resist the threat of fascism and racism.

There can be no tolerance for the attempt to legitimize the fascists using the national elections, the European Parliament and  the local elections as a means to whitewash their criminal activity in the streets and our neighbourhoods. We need to build  the struggle to defend the unity and workers’ rights regardless of religion, ethnicity, gender, skin colour, sexual orientation. We need to defend the richness of multicultural society. Let’s make our neighbourhoods and our cities bridges of friendship and solidarity, away from rationales of separation. We should not allow the neo-Nazis to form attack squads, to raid and wreak terror by burning mosques and synagogues, beating migrants, refugees and Roma, attacking homosexuals and targeting militants of the left.

We urge the unions, youth organizations, the anti-racist and anti-fascist organizations, immigrant communities, movements defending the rights of gays, women, Roma to join us in the fight for a Europe and a world without racism and fascism, to block the lies, ignorance, fear and prejudice that breed racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and pave the way for the fascists.

Let’s unite against fascist organisations and  racism and islamophobia.

We invite you in Athens on 5-6 October to a first international meeting of antifascist and antiracist movements to coordinate our steps.

A3P hacked by Antifa, searchable index up at Pirasec.com

The American Third Position is a racist, white supremacist organization founded in 2010. Owing to the fact that they do not parade around in nazi uniforms, they have avoided the same level of scrutiny and ridicule heaped upon other racist groups. We have written about them in the past, and we’ve always kept an eye on them– but we never expected something like this to happen to them.

The front page for White News Now, American Third Position and a host of other sites

#ANONYMOUS #ANTIFASCIST #OPBLITZKRIEG #OCCUPYWALLSTREET #ANTISEC
Fellow anons: we are pleased to bring you the dismantling of a major US-based
white supremacist network known as the “American Third Position”(A3P). These
racist losers have chapters across the US, operate several white power websites,
forums and online stores, and are even running a candidate in the 2012
elections. Although they try hard to maintain a professional public image to
camouflage their vile racism, we’re now airing all their dirty laundry all over
the internet. Contained in this major dump are several thousand private forum
messages, personal emails, internal organization notes, names, phone numbers,
home addresses and other information on all of their members and supporters.
It’s time for these cowardly suit and tie white supremacists to sleep with one
eye open. Scared much?

In addition to finding the usual racist rants and interactions with other white
power groups, we also found a disturbingly high amount of members who are also
involved in campaigning for Ron Paul. According to these messages, Ron Paul has
regularly met with many A3P members, even engaging in conference calls with
their board of directors. Ron Paul’s racist politics and
affiliations are already well known, being viciously anti-immigrant,
anti-abortion and against gay marriage — not to mention having authored the
racist “Ron Paul Papers” and receiving financial support from other white power
groups (pictured with Don Black from stormfront.org). Hard to believe Ron Paul
draws some support from the left and the occupation movements, especially now
that it is confirmed Ron Paul hangs out with straight up racist hate groups.

We put extra effort in ruining the life of A3P webmaster Jamie Kelso. On top of
being on the board of directors of A3P, former $cientologist, and high ranking
Ron Paul organizer, he also is the account owner of german nazi forums and store
nsl-forum.org, rhs-versand.com. We went ahead and wiped those websites off the
internet as well, dumping private messages and order information. Aside from us
releasing his information such as his social security number, address, resume
and private discussions, we also heard some folks went on a joyride with Kelso’s
credit card and made some lulzy purchases, including sex toy purchases and
making donations to the Anti Defamation League and many others. Oops.

We call upon not only other antifascists but all those opposed to white
supremacy to utilize this information and make hell for these white nationalist
scumbags. It is essential if we wish to live in a world free from oppression to
expose and confront racists at their jobs, their schools, at their homes and in
the streets.

No Dialogue! No sympathy! Destroy White Supremacy!

After a bit of trouble, the full bulk of the emails are up in a web-based, searchable format at pirasec.com

A cursory glance at the emails shows a hell of a lot of talk relating to Ron Paul. This talk isn’t limited to boring patter of idle racists promoting Ron Paul, it consists of Jamie Kelso and various users bragging about how they have high-up associates within the Ron Paul campaign:

Hello Alexander, Hey, great posting. Imbar just called me and he likes your
stuff too. Imbar is Ron Paul’s #2 man in Illinois. Owns his own manufacturing
company. Young guy like you. Jeff (Imbar) and I have been buddies for years. We
met up with Ron Paul in Ames, Iowa in Aug. 2007. Nice work, Jamie

Ron Paul can’t pull the same stunt as he did with the newsletters– what we have here is clear documentation of a strong link between a bulk of Ron Paul’s California fundraising and a neo-nazi organization:

[quote=Jamie Kelso]Hello HF, Cool. We had a great meeting in Orange County last
night, at which I was asked by the Chairman of the American Third Position party
to take on the work of his personal assistant. Bill Johnson is the Chairman, and
a good friend. He has been Ron Paul’s top man in Southern Calif. for the last 3
years. So this is a big deal, and will really help WNN.

We also have clear documentation of a long running, concerted campaign to recruit new members for A3P directly from the ranks of Ron Paul supporters:

[…]We’re being a BRIDGE, a badly needed bridge. A bridge that was missing. In fact,
more specifically, we’re being the hardest part of any bridge to engineer…the
center span. We’re being a bridge between people who ARE welcome to post on a
Ron Paul Revolution-type site but AREN’T welcomed at some of our sites…and
people who ARE welcome to post at all of our sites but AREN’T welcomed at Ron
Paul sites. I made that sound more complicated than it is. Here’s another way of
painting the picture. Over the last three years I have been all over the
country, with a number of your fellow Sr. Mods, at huge Ron Paul-type, Tea
Party-type, End the Fed-type patriot rallies that are (no doubt about it) the
start of our revolution.[…]

— and, apparently, an admission from one A3P member that they have been fooling leftist sites into supporting Ron Paul:

Hey check out my latest link on my failure proof plan thread. I got another
leftist website to publicly promote crossover voting for Ron Paul. I hope you
are visiting leftist sites and telling them to vote for Ron Paul to give Obama
an easier opponent.lol:cool:

Since Jaimie has no life, he was quick to remove the defacement– american3rdposition.com showed a blank wordpress template and whitenewsnow.com showed this:

Honestly, we find this funnier than My Little Pony

zone-h.org has a mirror here: http://zone-h.org/mirror/id/16824727

whitenewsnow.com now redirects to thewhiterace.com, where the bulk of chatter seems to be taken up with nothing but impotent rage:

These people need to be stopped.

Like now.

I’m sure we know some people on their level.

Obviously not, or else your sites wouldn’t have been hacked!

These emails are a treasure trove of intelligence. We’ll be plowing through them and reporting back on all the delicious morsels we find. Stay tuned for more dirt and more nazi butthurt!
