After the Discovery of Dylann Roof’s Website, the Council of Conservative Citizens Is Running Scared

Racists panicking
Crime • Views: 105,638

As we noted in our previous article about the discovery of Dylann Storm Roof’s website, Roof credited the white supremacist group called the Council of Conservative Citizens with “awakening” him to “black on white crime,” and inspiring him to start out on the murderous racist path that led him to the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.

Following the exposure of Roof’s “manifesto” (and “manifesto” is too grandiose a term for what’s really just a racist rant), the Council of Conservative Citizens apparently took down their entire website; if you go to topconservativenews.com or conservative-headlines.com (the deceptively innocuous-sounding names for their hate site) you see nothing but a blank white screen at the moment. But Google’s cache still has a copy of their post trying to distance themselves from Dylann Roof — with hundreds of evil, racist comments.

And now we’ve learned (via @MelioraMed) that one of the CCC’s main spokesmen on Twitter, Kyle Rogers (@kylerogers76), an overt racist with nearly 40,000 followers, has also deleted his Twitter account. If you click that link to his username you’ll see: “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!”

Here’s what his profile page looked like a few days ago, from Google’s cache:

(Note that he’s apparently a fan of Donald Trump.)

That’s a lot of followers to just dump without warning. These racist pieces of shit are clearly running scared tonight. And one of my Twitter followers, Barry Schwartz, suggests a possible reason: they could very well be terrified of a civil suit by the families of the church massacre victims.

More on the possible reasons why these Neanderthals are running scared tonight, from the LA Times: Possible Manifesto of Dylann Roof Draws From Hate Group’s Text, Expert Says.

Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, said in an interview with The Times on Saturday that most of the manifesto is material lifted from the CCC, which he called a “modern reincarnation” of the old White Citizens Councils that in the 1950s and ’60s resisted school desegregation in the South.

“The CCC is very active in Roof’s home state of South Carolina,” Cohen said. He added, “It seems the CCC media strategy was successful in recruiting Roof into the radical right.”

He identified the CCC’s webmaster as white nationalist Kyle Rogers, based near Charleston. He said Rogers has been pushing to bring attention to what he calls black-on-white crime and has written “article after article” on the CCC website about such crime. He said Rogers was particularly active in making statements after the Trayvon Martin shooting.

“It’s a staple of Rogers and the CCC’s media plan,” Cohen said.

Rogers also manages a flag store, which sells the flag of the government of Rhodesia — the same flag sewn on the jacket worn by Roof in his Facebook profile, Cohen said.
