All Out November 17th – #Pushback Against Proud Boys and Threepers in Philly!

When: November 17th @ 11am (show up early)

Where: Washington Square Park (6th and Walnut St., Philadelphia)

What: Let Proud Boys, Three Percenters, and miscellaneous far right Trump Supporters know they are unwelcome.

On November 17th in Washington Square Park, far right Trump supporters will hold a rally entitled “We the People.” The language used in the event page is vague and the rally seems to be solely a provocation against liberals and leftists in Philadelphia. The event is being organized by Pennsylvania “Three Percenter” militia members in conjunction with “Sports, Beer and Politics,” a page on Facebook that is run by two “1st Degree” members of The Proud Boys, Sonny Sullivan and Zach Rehl. Both of the SBP admins live in Philadelphia.

The Proud Boys have been in the news a lot lately after a large group of their members assaulted 3 anti-racist protestors following a speaking event by Proud Boys founder Gavinc McGinnis. However, if you are not familiar with this “Western Chauvinist fraternal organization,” here are some resources:

Trump’s “Second Amendment People”?: The U.S. Patriot Movement Today

A coalition of local and regional organizations, #Pushback Campaign, has put out a call and made an event page to protest the Proud Boys and Threepers. We fully support this move to defend Philly from these white supremacist, misogynist, anti-queer xenophobes.

All those coming out should make preparations for safety. The Proud Boys, in particular, have a record of moving in large packs and provoking people and then attacking them if they object to their doing things like screaming “Trump!” or “Build the Wall!” Proud Boys will also just attack individuals they identify as “Antifa” or Muslim or Trans if those people are alone. They especially employ these tactics after their scheduled event ends, when people are filtering out in small numbers away from bystanders. Travel in groups and be prepared to defend yourself.

Be mindful that the cops will also be targeting people perceived as “Antifa” or radical and, as seen in NYC and Providence recently, will not intervene to stop a fight unless the fash are losing. Plan strategies that acknowledge those realities, watch each other’s backs, and don’t depend on the state.

See you in the streets,

Keystone United Exposed: Closing Thoughts

We hope that the info we’ve collected is helpful to comrades around Pennsylvania and elsewhere. We will be copying all the Keystone United Exposed articles to a stand-alone blog so, as time passes and new content is published here, that info remains easy to find.

Keystone United Exposed effectively identified the major players within KSS, as well as many of its foot soldiers and supporters. It provided a start in mapping out the distribution of KU/KSS around the state and region, so we can know where they are really strong and when they are swelling numbers with out-of-town support.

From l to r: Unknown, Joe Phy, Scott Costa, Jason Cunningham, Ian McCorts, Unknown, Bob Gaus, Bryan Vanagaitis, AJ Olsen and Nunzio Pellegrino of Keystone State Skinheads. All except unknowns were profiled as part of KU Exposed.
Keystone United members. From l to r: Steve Smith, Unknown, Bob Gaus, Joe Garvey, Bryan Vanagaitis, Cody Haulman, Ryan Wojtowicz, Scott Costa, Ian McCorts, Travis Cornell (rip lol), Chris Croumbley, Josh Martin and Shane Dilling. All but the one unknown were exposed during our series.

Having identified this many members and associates of KU/KSS will also lead to us identifying future associates more easily. We exposed many bones at their jobs and to people who live in their communities. However, one drawback of a project like this is such a flood of information can make it inevitable that people will begin to slip through the cracks. It’s possible that by focusing on a smaller number and really campaigning around, for example, getting Steve Smith fired from Gertrude Hawk’s Chocolates warehouse in Dunmore, we could have had a larger impact. The good news is there’s no reason why we can’t still do that.

While preparing these articles, we learned several things that had to be considered and reconciled with our subjects’ associations with a violent white supremacist gang; filled with men who glorify Hitler and Colonialism, who promise “Freedom Through Nationalism” but practice racial terror. Including the frequency that Keystone United members and associates had successfully either totally hidden or sanitized the group’s image for many people in their lives. This sort of “low-intensity,” year round outreach work (aka being fake friendly) is insidiously effective in minimizing the eventual impact once they are eventually exposed. “Oh no! Not Bob… He’s never said anything offensive to me! Well, a few jokes…” is what some will say. Nazis collect these “friends” as an insurance policy against future exposure.

Keystone United has largely maintained their course during the Trump era. Unlike Heimbach and the TWP or the NSM, KU/KSS did not overreach early or open up the gates to any potential murderer they could slap a white polo on. Keystone United abandoned publicly using language about “Racial Holy War” (RaHoWa) or overthrowing the “Zionist Occupied Government” of the U.S. long before Trump. What has changed, though, is that now KU/KSS has a new PR tactic at their disposal, the label of “Trump Supporter.” KU/KSS uses that aforementioned outreach work to reinforce the notions being pushed by right wing media that a) anti-fascists are indiscriminately describing as nazis and attacking all trump supporters or anyone who disagrees with far left politics and b) all actions against trump supporters are being done by Antifa crews or organizations. Both of these claims are patently false. But now, with many major media outlets pushing similar narratives, they have a more receptive audience.

We know that we can’t convey to everyone as to the level of threat KU/KSS represents. This is disheartening, both as Anti-Fascists and as people who, largely, have experienced direct violence from this group or groups allied to them. And ultimately, the conclusion is that white conservatives generally, (and some POC conservatives) don’t really dislike Nazis very much at all. It would seem, that for many of them, the biggest concern is being lumped in with them, and a frustration with nazis not being able to keep their racist rhetoric in the coded language that is popular among “white america.” That said, we hope that this series has made it clear that KSS has not gone away, and their influence and support network extends far beyond their membership.

When members of the Golden State Skinheads (a crew allied with KSS), wearing TWP shirts, attacked and stabbed anti-fascists in Sacramento in 2016 before being driven off the streets, TWP spokesman Matt Parott attempted to frame it to the media as a fight between “pro and anti-trump groups.” Because of the spiteful mentality of Trump supporters in the face of ever-increasing evidence of his incompetence, narcissism, and corruption, they will defend anyone willing to still publicly identify as a pro Trump. Anti-Fascists need to be aware of this dynamic and begin formulating new strategies to wedge groups like KSS and Blood and Honour from the GOP base. The evidence of what happens if we fail is in the increasingly Fascist rhetoric and tactics being used by pro-trump sectors of government and law enforcement, not to mention all the recent dog whistles to nazism coming out of those sectors.

Exposing a nazi is crucial. It can largely neutralize their crossover political organizing, add a tremendous social cost, and makes them think twice about attacking someone, knowing that they will be identified immediately by Anti-Fascists. For KU/KSS, public exposure also undermines the generous amount of effort they put in to distancing their group from its more openly neo-nazi past. However, it is the follow-up that gets the goods. The people who contacted workplaces, passed out flyers around the homes of KSS members, pushed for their expulsion from social clubs and sports teams, and took other actions have done just as much as us to make this a success.

One area we did not touch on during this series as much as we’d like is KU/KSS’ involvement in the “Anti-Antifa movement.” Anti-Antifa Pennsylvania shirts are printed and sold by KSS members, and they are involved in running an Anti-Antifa blog and website that publishes information on Anti-Racists and Anti-Fascists. KU nazis are very encouraging of the Anti-Antifa label as a stand in for more openly nazi imagery and as a unifying point between white nationalists and other far right nationalists who conflict with antifa because of our left and anarchist politics. Pushing Anti-Antifa as a brand within the larger pro-trump right is likely to be a strategy for KU/KSS over the next few years, and the groundwork has already been laid by media outlets, Trump, and 4chan.

Several members of KU/KSS can be seen wearing Anti-Antifa t-shirts in this pic from LED 2017.

 

We have successfully identified almost all of the attendees of last year’s Leif Erikson Day event in Philly. Only those who hid their faces or stayed away from Fairmount Park have escaped detection so far. So while ultimately our goal is to stop KU from holding Leif Erikson Day at all, the information we gather from it’s continuation is a nice consolation prize. Thanks to last year’s LED, we were able to identify Joe Garvey, Chris Croumbley, Anthony Marcink, and Travis Cornell (rip lol), all previously unknown to us, as Keystone United associates. We were also able to confirm the continued involvement of several individuals who had not been sighted at public KU events for several years, including Shane Dilling and Liam Schaff.

Some of those KSS nazis wore masks because they have something to lose from being exposed by us. Help us identify the “unknowns.”  If anyone has information about the any of the unidentified nazis picture in this series, please send it our way.

It is common to end on a note acknowledging that white supremacy and racism are much larger than neo-nazi bonehead crews or their more media-friendly iterations.  While this is true, attempts to compartmentalize groups like Keystone United from the larger “mainstream” right seem rooted more in wishful thinking and denial than reality. KU has synthesized American libertarian conservatism with national socialist “race science” to make both more palatable to the other. Two Keystone United leaders are Luzerne County GOP officials. In the process of this article, we exposed KU members/associates as working for city governments, in large unions, and for international software firms. Keystone United associates are/were active in biker clubs, veterans groups, roller derby leagues, music scenes and local government. Tired tropes and finger pointing about “living in mom’s basement” on both sides of this conflict are generally inaccurate, Daniel “Jack Corbin” McMahon excepted. Anti-Fascists in this state should not discount how embedded Keystone United are in their communities.

Steve Smith and Ryan Wojtowicz of Keystone United. Both are Luzerne County GOP committeemen.

When Bob Gaus and several other KU members attended Trump’s rally in Harrisburg, they did not sit in some special section. When they (likely) went out to get a drink afterwards, they did not go to a nazis-only bar. When they talk politics at the bar with people belonging to “the mainstream right,” those people are most likely left with the impression that they have more in common than difference with the KU members. If we learn nothing else from Trump’s ascension, it should be that the distance between a “non racist” republican (or democrat/independent for that matter) and a neo-nazi is much smaller than we like to believe, and the unifying of those forces is a very real threat.

Nazis have embedded themselves in groups like The Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer or started multi-racial pan-right groups like Vinlanders Social Club founder Brien James’ American Guard.

Republicans have utilized dog whistle and crypto-fascist talking points to retain supporters among the racist right, while not alienating POC and non-racist conservatives. Anti-Fascists have relied too heavily on accusations of racism as a panacea solution to the far right, and the far right has adapted. They have dozens of strategies in place to undermine those accusations before they are even made. We have to take the more difficult path of dissecting the full contents of the ideologies of the far right and conveying why they should be opposed on a plethora of grounds, including cis hetero-sexist positions, militarism and colonialism, and supporting capitalist exploitation of the working class, in addition to white supremacy and racism. Otherwise we will continue to hand groups like Proud Boys, Patriot Prayer and American Guard an easy way to insulate themselves from association with orthodox fascist groups, and an easy way to portray us as hysterical or dishonest.

We would like to thank all those who took action this month based on the articles we’ve released. As we mentioned, actions have already begun and are likely to continue for some time. As this is being written, it is unclear when or if Keystone United will hold their Leif Erikson Day event in Philly. It is possible they’ve even held it already in secret. Should they do so, we have the tools to hold them accountable long after they scurry out of Fairmount, back to their homes in Philly or elsewhere in the state. It is a point of pride for us to put a stop to this demonstration, but not only have we effectively neutralized it as a source of recruitment or propaganda for KU, we have purposed it as an intelligence trove for ourselves. So stay home or come on out, boys. Either way, we’ll use it to our advantage and to further our ultimate goal of destroying Keystone United for good.

Finally, predictably, there has been some blow back from KU/KSS/BNH regarding this series. Threats and harassment has been sent from KU members and supporters in all directions, including to non-involved persons and former members. Sometimes for something as simple as sharing an article. We send our respect and solidarity to the folks facing any sort of harassment as a result of the series. Threats against ourselves have also been levied, both of legal action and assault. For our part, we refuse to be intimidated by a group of coward liars. Two-faced scumbags who have the nerve to call others “degenerates.” Who attack brutally in swarms and talk tough behind police but who cower in our city, coming unannounced and bitterly unwelcome, staying briefly and leaving quickly. Every flash demo and rally, every threat and assault, every rape and murder, creates more of us. It reinforces our resolve. This is the city of gritty, fuckers, and we’re just getting started.

Keystone United Exposed Day 30 – Jason Cunningham

NOTE: Today, Leif Erikson Day, is Day 30 of our month-long series “Keystone United Exposed.” Before we get to today’s article, we wanted to let everyone know to check back tomorrow for a BONUS DAY of Keystone United exposed. You didn’t think we were done… did you?

Keystone State Skinheads member Jason Cunningham.

Jason Cunningham is a neo-nazi and longtime Keystone State Skinheads member. He has been in attendance at several of the Leif Erikson Day events in Philly as well as other KSS protests and actions around PA. He grew up in New Jersey, at different times attending Pitman High School and Arthur P. Schalick HS in Gloucester County and Elmer, respectively, and then lived in Lancaster for a while, during his time with KSS. Cunningham left PA at some point, so we are unsure his activities currently, but he is still a nazi and KSS member.

Keystone United Exposed Day 26: Clemie Richard Haught and Amy Strong

Amy Strong and Rick Haught, Keystone United supporters and neo-nazis.

Clemie Richard (Rick) Haught is a 42 year-old (DOB 11/12/75) member of Maryland Skinheads and longtime neo-nazi. Haught runs the music label “Label 56” out of Baltimore, MD. Since the apparent demise of Micetrap Records, Label 56 would be the premier white power label in this region.

Rick Haught wearing his Label 56 hoodie.

Haught is in a relationship with Amy Strong, who once worked for a Ron Paul campaign before her nazi ties were exposed. Strong now works with Confederate “flagger” groups and the Oath Keepers. Two groups that vehemently deny having nazi connections, and yet here we are.

Strong (r) with Ron Paul while working for one of his presidential campaigns.
Strong (center) at a pro-confederate rally.

Label 56 sells releases by bands such as Brutal Attack, Bound for Glory, and Empire Falls as well as a large collection of National Socialist Black Metal and racist country western music. The clothing section has a considerable amount dedicated to hating Anti-Fascists and leftists, and the DVD’s section has only 2 items, one of which is the last speech of William Pierce, longtime leader of the National Alliance. Pierce was the author of “The Turner Diaries,” a novel about Nazi revolution within the united states that has inspired scores of acts of violence including the Oklahoma City Bombing.

Only $6.50, eh?
Haught and Strong with Maryland Skinheads member Jason Tankersley.

Label 56 was in the news briefly in 2012 after they were discovered selling items by bands linked to Sikh Temple shooter and Hammerskin Wade Michael Page. Label 56 issued a statement decrying the shooting and removed the items, but continued selling other items just as inflammatory and offensive.

Haught runs the Label 56 blog, which features such luminary thoughts as “They’re gonna have a black actress play Samantha in a bewitched remake?! That’s the same as having Ryan Gossling play Martin Luther King!”

No we aren’t exaggerating.

It is also used to promote Keystone United related projects such as the European American Action Coalition. Label 56 puts out podcasts arbitrarily to promote their bands and politics.

Haught was present with MDS in 2006 when they attacked Anti-Racists on the way to protest the Klan in West Virginia near the border of Maryland. He was also present with KSS when they harassed Philly Pride in 2006.

Rick Haught (in rear with sunglasses) with KSS and MDS nazis harassing a Pride event in Philly in 2006.

Haught is also a regular at Keystone United and KSS events, and KU in turn fills their St. Patrick’s Day event, which it isn’t getting shut down by MD Antifa. Haught has also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor theft charge in the past.

Strong (with red hair) with Oath Keepers at a demonstration of some sort.

Haught and Strong’s last known address is 1604 Inverness Ave., Baltimore MD. Haught drives a black Ford pickup (MD 697-0L7). It is unknown if Haught has any other income, or what Strong is doing for work, and we are asking our comrades in that area to look into it and let us know.

Keystone United Exposed Day 25: Ryan Wojtowicz

Ryan Wojtowicz, Keystone United member and neo-nazi living in Nanticoke, PA.

Ryan F. Wojtowicz is a longtime nazi, white nationalist organizer, and very active member of Keystone United. Wojtowitcz has attended most, if not all, Leif Erikson Day events.

Wojtowicz models himself after KSS co-founder Steve Smith, and has followed him into the Luzerne County GOP as a committeeman.

Wojtowicz attended Hanover Area Junior-Senior High School and Luzerne County Community College.

Wojtowicz attends almost every Keystone United event in the area and has written content for their blog. Wojtowicz is also active in the Pennsylvania Council of Conservative Citizens, the European American Action Coalition, and the American Freedom Party. All projects Steve Smith is involved in as well (Smith and Wojtowicz founded the EAAC). Despite being only 28, he has been involved in White Nationalist organizing for nearly 10 years. Wojtowiczs’ last known address is 418 E. Noble St., Nanticoke, PA.

Keystone United Exposed Day 24: Joseph Hoesch

Joeseph Hoesch. Neo- nazi, former Keystone State Skinheads member, and current Atlantic City Skins associate living in Philadelphia.

Joseph Hoesch was a founding member of Keystone State Skinheads, who is no longer a member but is still a neo-nazi (though he lacks the courage to admit it in the street) and has been spotted around the city harassing leftist events, including demonstrations against the Trump Administration by larger, more liberal groups, and the #OccupyICEPHL encampment.

Joe Hoesch wearing a Waffen SS t-shirt and harassing the #occupyICEPHL encampment in Philly with a few fellow nazis.

Joseph Hoesch was involved in forming KSS in 2001, and was present with them the following year in York, PA, when Nazis rallying with the National Alliance and Creativity Movement were routed and sent fleeing the city by locals and Anti-Fascists. Hoesch was injured at some point in the melee.

Hoesch was married to his future ex-wife by Creativity Movement “Pontifex Maximus” Matthew Hale on the Aryan Nations compound. Hale would be imprisoned for conspiring to murder a federal judge who had ruled against the group over a copyright issue.

Joe Hoesch, former Barricada magazine “Bloody Bonehead of the Month.”

Following his ex-wife’s departure from the white power movement, Hoesch wasn’t seen around for several years, but was alongside KSS in Tacony around 4 years ago when they countered our March Against Racists and Rapists.

Hoesch was all tough talk that day, but when he was seen again last November he denied still being a Nazi. This was proven false a few weeks later when he was hanging out with AC Skins’ members when they were at a Murphy’s Law show in Philly.

As we mentioned, Hoesch showed up at least twice at the #OccupyICEPHL encampment, once wearing a Neo-Nazi t-shirt and with another bonehead. Hoesch is no longer a member of KSS, but this is a result of him sleeping with KSS Co-Leader Bob Gaus’ fiancee, Valerie, and not a change of heart.

Hoesch works as a window cleaner, and has his own business, Hoesch Window Cleaning Service. He has it registered at his home address, 3255 Chatham Street, here in Philly.

We are asking our readers to go to the Angie’s List page for Hoesch Window Cleaning Service and leave reviews that make people aware that the business is run by a longtime neo-nazi who has a history of violence and harassing liberals and leftists, unprovoked.

Keystone United Exposed Day 23: Jason Honeywell

Jason Honeywell, longtime Keystone State Skinheads member and neo-nazi.

Jason Honeywell is a longtime neo-nazi and Keystone State Skinheads member who was at one time, and may still be, the leader of the Wilkes Barre unit.

Honeywell was accused of stabbing two Anti-Racist skinheads outside of Cafe Metropolis in Wilkes-Barre after he and other members of KSS provoked a confrontation by giving seig-heil salutes at the singer of the band River Side Riot, who is black, during the band’s set.

Honeywell’s younger brother eventually pled guilty to the charges, but even if you believe him (and we have doubts), Jason Honeywell was indisputably involved in the racist provocation and fight that followed.

The Honeywell brothers alongside Keystone United co-founder Steve Smith and KU member Ryan Wojtowicz.

Honeywell has attended several past Leif Erikson Day events and was present when KSS crashed an NAACP organized meeting in response to Anti-Semetic graffiti being spray painted on a local synagogue by racist teenagers who were friends of KSS members. Honeywell has also been active with the Council of Conservative Citizens, a hate group with an innocuous sounding name with origins in the White Citizen’s Councils of the Jim Crow south.

In recent years, Honeywell hasn’t been spotted at many KSS events, but he may just be keeping a low profile. Honeywell maintains at least social connection to KSS, as does his fiance Sharyn Mann, and there’s no evidence he’s changed his ways.

Honeywell’s last known address is 129 Pine Street, Apt. 2, Pittston PA. We are asking our readers to help us identify what employment, if any, Honeywell has.

Keystone United Exposed Day 22: Marcel and Sharon Brettschneider

UPDATE: According to a statement on the Bath City Roller Girls’ social media, both Marcel and Sharon Brettschnieders have been kicked off the team. We applaud BCRG for their quick and decisive action and for taking a stand against racism and nazism in Roller Derby. We have updated the article accordingly.

Sharon and Marcel Brettschnider, Keystone United members and neo-nazis living in Ferndale, MI. Marcel is wearing a “Rock Against Communism” shirt. RAC was started by the singer of neo-nazi band Skrewdriver, Ian Stuart, and is a common image on nazi clothing.

Marcel and Sharon Brettschneider are Keystone United members living in Ferndale, MI. They are both neo-nazis and Keystone State Skinheads supporters.

The Brettschneiders keep it very low profile about their white nationalist beliefs. They actually lived in Pennsylvania for several years, in Pheonixville and Philadelphia. At some point in their time in PA, Marcel joined KU, and then they moved to Michigan We later would learn of a “guy named Marcel” from KSS who had left town, but it wasn’t until doing research for KU Exposed that we discovered who Marcel was.

The Brettschneiders with Philly KSS and KSS co-founder Steve Smith. From left to right: Peggy Caterino, David Phillips, Steve Smith, The Brettschneiders, Joey and Stacey Phy. AJ Olsen kneeling in front.
The Brettshneiders with Philly KSS member AJ Olsen.

Marcel is/was besties with Philly KSS leader AJ Olsen. He included AJ in his wedding party, and they interact constantly on Facebook. When Tim Wylie from KSS was imprisoned for possessing an illegal firearm as a felon, Marcel Brettschneider donated 200 dollars and had this to say:

Bob Gaus is the de-facto leader of Keystone State Skinheads.

So Marcel not only knows Tim Wylie, and AJ Olsen, but KSS co-founder Bob Gaus, and is clearly referring to KU/KSS as “his brothers.”

Once we knew Marcel was KU, we were able to spot him in some pictures of the group, including a Keystone United/KSS picnic in 2015 (right next to Gaus) and Leif Erikson Day that same year. Sharon Brettschneider is also in the picture. Both of them are trying to hide their identities.

Keystone United at Leif Erikson Day 2014. The Brettschneiders are on the right, turned away from the camera. We have verified through informants within KSS that they attended this LED.

The reason for hiding his identity, as well as his beliefs, is likely linked to Marcel Brettschneider’s job as a Consultant for IT company Cenit North America, Inc.

We are asking our readers to both email and call Cenit North America’s support and lodge a complaint that they are employing a neo-nazi who is using his wages to help bail a fellow nazi out of jail for carrying an illegal gun as a felon.

 

Finally, anyone with additional info regarding these two should send it our way.

Jimmy E. Thorson is a neo-nazi, Keystone United member, and Keystone State Skinheads supporter living in Carlisle, PA.

Thorson has attended several Leif Erikson Day events, and also went to support an Aryan Nations rally of 12 in Gettysburg in 2010 but ended up leaving early muttering about how pathetic they were.

Keystone United Exposed Day 19: Nunzio Pellegrino

Nunzio Pellegrino (l) with fellow Keystone State Skinheads member Joe Phy.

Nunzio Pellegrino is a 37 year old neo-nazi and Keystone State Skinheads member living in Philadelphia.

Pellegrino is the older brother of Vincent Pellegrino, a KSS supporter who sexually assaulted a woman in Tacony and then died fleeing the scene. Shortly after his brother’s death, Nunzio claimed to have left KSS and cut ties. That proved to be a lie, and Pellegrino has just been maintaining a low profile.

Pellegrino does White Nationalist graffiti in Philly and has attended non-public KSS events.

Pellegrino’s last known address is 6403 Ditman St., Philly. Pellegrino has a lot of family and friends in that part of Tacony, who are aware of his politics and support him. He, along with several members of his family, joined with KSS in countering our march in Tacony in response to his brother’s crimes. Several other Pellegrino family members maintain friendly relations with KSS on social media.

We are asking for verifiable tips regarding Pellegrino’s employment or any other information about him.
