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.
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.
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.
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!”
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
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:
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.
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.

Patrick Rogers and Heidi McCarthy are neo-nazis and members of Keystone United living in Williamsport, PA.
Rogers is heavily involved with Keystone United and Keystone State Skinheads. He attends many of their demonstrations and social events. Rogers has attended pretty much every Leif Erikson Day event since at least 2012. He also writes the bulk of the content for Keystone United’s blog under his real name.
Rogers has a long criminal history, including charges for “corruption of minors,” inducing minors to buy alcohol, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.
Rogers posted a change.org petition in 2017 to overturn the conviction of Kayla Norton and Jose Torres, 2 anti-Black racists who terrorized a children’s birthday party with guns, confederate flags and racial slurs. Rogers was briefly involved with American Vikings, a group started by Vinlanders Social Club founder Brien James, in 2013.
Heidi McCarthy has also attended several Leif Erikson days in Philly, and helped campaign for Steve Smith’s re-election in Luzerne County. She is a proud racist.
Rogers and McCarthy’s last known address was 815 Wilson St., Williamsport. Pat drives a very understated Hyundai Elantra (PA HKD 6201).
We are asking our readers to send any additional verifiable info on these two to us.

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.
Unfortunately, Thorson did not wise up after that and started getting involved with KSS and Keystone United. Thorson attends many Keystone United events, and was also spotted with Bob Gaus at the Trump rally in Harrisburg.
Thorson attended an anti-refugee rally in Harrisburg with KU last year.
Thorson’s last know address is 120 W. Willow St., Carlisle PA. We know that Thorson had been working at a grocery store in Carlisle, but do not know if his employment status has changed in recent years. Thorson has also worked for an events company as a seasonal employee and also claims to have just enrolled in Southern New Hampshire University, likely doing online courses.

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.

Josh Martin is a neo-nazi member of Keystone State Skinheads who lives in or near Pittsburgh, PA.
Martin has recently tried to lock down his social media, probably due to the recent attention to Pittsburgh-area KSS members following their attack on a Black man in Avalon, PA. Martin was in attendance at KSS’ Yule Party in 2016 as well as other KU/KSS social events.
Josh Martin works as a Mechanic/Welder for Local 154 of the Boilermakers Union, where has worked for about 3 years. If anyone is a member or has contacts with members of that union, we would like to talk with them.
We are asking our readers to help us figure out more info about Josh Martin and send it our way.

Ian McCorts is a 33 year old member of Keystone State Skinheads and Keystone United and a longtime neo-nazi. McCorts has attended several Leif Erikson day events, including this past fall.
McCorts is also a regular at KSS social events and participated in an Anti-Refugee protest in Harrisburg in late 2015 alongside other KSS members.
It is important to note how Keystone United operates, which is to socially exist in the traditional white power skinhead scene, but politically exist in the mainstream right. This allows them to both push more overtly racist views within the mainstream right, and to bring “respectable americans” into their world through the social functions, and radicalize them that way.
McCorts’s last known address is 111 Crestview Vlg., Middletown, PA. He lives with his wife, LIndsey McCorts. We are asking our readers to help us find more info on this nazi and send it our way.

Jason Tankersley is the 37 year-old (DOB 5/9/81) founder of Maryland Skinheads and a longtime neo-nazi who, in the past few years, has attempted to rehabilitate his image. Maryland Skinheads, or MDS, has always been a small crew with longstanding ties to Keystone State Skinheads.
Both crews appeared together in a National Geographic documentary in 2008 training and working together. Keystone United’s music festival, Uprise Fest, which ran for several years, was co-promoted with Label 56, a white power label run by MDS co-founder Clemie Haught. Uprise routinely featured Label 56 bands. Because of the discrepancy in size, MDS has largely functioned as a chapter of KSS for most of it’s existence.
Tankersley was a nazi long before MDS or KSS were founded, participating in rallies by the National Alliance, The Aryan Nations and the KKK, among others white power groups. Tankersley was present at the 2004 Aryan Nations and National Socialist Movement rally in Valley Forge, PA where Anti-Fascists turned away large portions of the crowd and a few nazis got smashed.
Tankersley was with Joe Phy and other KSS and MDS members when they harassed a Pride event in Philly with homophobic slurs and nazi salutes in 2006.
Tankersley is a former amateur boxer who now trains MMA out of his gym, Exile Fitness, in Rosedale, MD. In many pictures above, you can see Tankersley wearing Exile branded clothing.
As we mentioned, Tankersley has attempted to rehabilitate his image in recent years. He has covered up his more inflammatory tattoos, and trains a diverse group of students which includes POC and women. It also, however, sometimes includes fellow MDS members and other nazis.
However, Tankersley has not cut any ties with MDS, KSS, or the far right. Tankersley continues to attend KSS events and actions. He still promotes far right racists like Tommy Robinson, founder of the nazi-infested “English Defense League.” He just doesn’t seem to take issues with collecting money from POC while buddying up with the same group whose members allegedly threatened to “exterminate every black one by one” during their racist assault in Avalon, PA this summer.
Tankersley’s last known address is 1107 Steelton Ave, Baltimore, MD.
If someone wants to leave the nazi life behind, we support that. However, you cannot continue to materially and rhetorically support a neo-nazi organization like KSS/KU and expect hanging out with fellow far right fascists who happen to be POC like Jimi Yamamoto of the band Total Annihilation to insulate you from the label nazi. Jimi Yamamoto is known for hanging out with nazis. Nazis have a long history of excusing politically aligned individuals who validate their ideology by conforming to so-called “white” and “male” behaviors and sensibilities.
As for Tankersley’s business catering to people of all ethnicity, you can miss us on that shit. Taking someone’s money and turning around and donating it to a group that believes the United States belongs to white people (and control of it belongs to white men specifically) is a racist act, period.
It is unlikely that Tankersley’s students are all totally unaware of his history, and probable that he has spun them his own tale of redemption where he realized what matters is being a far right nationalist who supports “traditional” gender power dynamics and racial homogenization, regardless of WHICH race. However, we are still asking our readers to visit the Exile MMA Facebook page and remind them that by supporting Tankersley and his gym, they are supporting Maryland Skinheads, Keystone United and other far right racist groups and causes. There are already several unhappy reviews related to Tankerly fat-shaming and bullying a teenage girl as an internet troll.
