Revealed: A White Supremacist Leader Has Been Working in the US State Department Since 2013
Well, here’s a comforting bit of information: according to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch, a US State Department official hired in 2013 is deeply involved in the white supremacist movement.
A U.S. State Department official oversaw the Washington, D.C.-area chapter of a white nationalist organization, hosted white nationalists at his home and published white nationalist propaganda online, Hatewatch has determined.
The official, Matthew Q. Gebert, works as a foreign affairs officer assigned to the Bureau of Energy Resources, a State Department spokesperson told Hatewatch. Online, and in private correspondences with other white nationalists, Gebert uses “Coach Finstock” as a pseudonym. Through that alias, he expressed a desire to build a country for whites only.
“[Whites] need a country of our own with nukes, and we will retake this thing lickety split,” “Coach Finstock” said on a May 2018 episode of “The Fatherland,” a white nationalist podcast. “That’s all that we need. We need a country founded for white people with a nuclear deterrent. And you watch how the world trembles.”
A State Dept official tells me: This individual is employed by the Dept of State as a foreign affairs officer assigned to the Bureau of Energy Resources in Washington, DC.
The Dept of State cannot comment on personnel issues but is committed to providing an inclusive workplace. https://t.co/rF1JaesEo0
