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

Racists panicking
Crime • Views: 90,011

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.

UPDATE at 6/20/15 6:05:46 pm by Charles Johnson

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.

Dylann Storm Roof’s Website Discovered, With White Supremacist Manifesto and Photos

A neo-Confederate white supremacist inspired by the Council of Conservative Citizens
Crime • Views: 56,300

A website registered in February in the name of “Dylan Roof” (with his correct address) has been discovered, containing a white supremacist manifesto and dozens of photographs of Roof posing with guns and Confederate flags, visiting a Confederate soldier’s graveyard and other Confederate landmarks, and drawing white power symbols, neo-Nazi runes and the numbers “1488” in the sand on a South Carolina beach.

“14” refers to the infamous “14 words” coined by white nationalist David Lane, that have become a motto for neo-Nazis and racists throughout America:

“We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children.”

And “88” refers to the eighth letter of the alphabet, H, with two of them together standing for “Heil Hitler.”

The manifesto is here, but since it’s been publicized you may not be able to get through to the site; it’s apparently a low budget shared server and it’s bogging down badly under the heavy traffic. (Here it is at the Internet Archive.)

In any case, the manifesto is a grotesquely racist screed, filled with hatred toward blacks and Hispanics and obsessed with the very common conservative meme of “black on white crime.”

Roof credits the white supremacist group called the Council of Conservative Citizens with “awakening” him to “black on white crime,” following the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. And that’s an interesting parallel to Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft, who has also used the CCC website as a source numerous times for his racist blog posts.

The website of the Council of Conservative Citizens is apparently offline today, and that’s probably not just a coincidence.

I was struck by how similar the views in this manifesto are to the racist comments tweeted continuously by Chuck C. Johnson (when he still had a Twitter account) — and sure enough, I got a tweet today containing a screenshot of Chuck posting about the manifesto on Facebook, saying he found it “disturbing, yet engaging.”

I’ll conclude by pointing out that so many conservative pundits and Fox News talking heads were desperately trying to pretend there was some question about whether Roof’s horrible crime was racially motivated; now we know for certain that it was. (Not that there was really much doubt anyway, given his statements at the time.)

The right thing for these people to do now would be to eat some crow and apologize for trying to deny the obvious racism of this alleged killer. But I’m not going to hold my breath.

UPDATE at 6/20/15 3:09:58 pm by Charles Johnson

The New York Times has verified that this website was registered to Dylann Roof at his address in February of this year, and that it was last modified shortly before the shootings:

The website was first registered on Feb. 9 to a Dylann Roof in Eastover, S.C. The next day, the registration information was intentionally masked. The site was discovered by two Twitter users, @henrykrinkle and @EMQuangel, who used a tool to find any domain names registered to Mr. Roof. The registration information was then verified by The New York Times.

The site hosts a cache of photos of Mr. Roof as well as the manifesto. According to web server logs, the manifesto was last modified at 4:44 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, the day of the Charleston shootings. “At the time of writing I am in a great hurry,” it says.

Blogger Linked to Chuck Johnson’s Crusade Against Thad Cochran Sentenced to 2.5 Years in Prison

Far right blogger Clayton Kelly, an associate of cyberstalker Chuck C. Johnson in his crusade to smear Sen. Thad Cochran in Mississippi, has now been sentenced to 2 and a half years in prison for conspiring to take video of Cochran’s wife as she lay bedridden in a nursing home.

Kelly on Monday was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for his role in the conspiracy to photograph the late wife of Sen. Thad Cochran as she lay in her nursing home bed suffering dementia. John Mary and Richard Sager had previously pleaded guilty and got no jail time in exchange for their cooperation. Another defendant, Richland attorney Mark Mayfield, committed suicide in June 2014, about a month after his arrest.

Kelly, an aspiring political blogger, was egged on by others to photograph Rose Cochran at St. Catherine’s Village nursing home. He used the image in a political hit piece video against Cochran, who was in the biggest political battle of his long career in his re-election battle against tea party challenger state Sen. Chris McDaniel.

Records released Monday show online correspondence between Kelly, other defendants and others about the scheme to create a video showing Cochran was having an affair with a longtime staffer while his wife languished in a nursing home.

From testimony from an investigator and records introduced Monday, it appears Mary, a former radio talk show host and tea party leader from Hattiesburg, was the ring leader in the plan to photograph Rose Cochran and make the hit piece video.

[…]

Chapman said it’s been his experience with armed robberies and other crimes that the smarter criminals talk the less intelligent ones into doing the actual crime.

“This defendant probably fits into that category,” Chapman said before sentencing Kelly.

Chuck C. Johnson offered a $2000 bounty for photos of Cochran’s wife in the nursing home (screenshots from Google’s cache):

… and continued to defend Clayton Kelly on Twitter for this disgusting scheme, even after he was arrested and charged:

Kelly’s wife apparently tried to talk him out of it:

The judge noted a statement from Kelly’s wife that “I told him it was a stupid idea and that it was just plain wrong,” and said he couldn’t sum it up any better.

He should have listened to her.

Note: Chuck Johnson was subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury in Mississippi in a related case, but ignored it.

Dallas Police HQ Attacked: Sniper Shoots Suspect in “Zombie Assault Vehicle”

Crime • Views: 29,741

A man who said he blamed police for losing custody of his son, and for labeling him as a “terrorist,” has reportedly been shot dead by a sniper after a stand-off that lasted several hours. Luckily no one was injured when he fired dozens of rounds at police headquarters; he also had numerous explosive devices.

But the strangest part of the story: he was driving an armored vehicle with gun ports, described by the manufacturer as a “Zombie Apocalypse Assault Vehicle and Troop Transport.”

The van had a Georgia license plate, and online records indicate that a company in Newman, Ga., sold a similar vehicle on eBay for $8,250.

The company that sold it, Jenco Sales Inc., described the vehicle on Facebook: “Zombie Apocalypse Assault Vehicle and Troop Transport. This full armored zombie busting vehicle features convenient gun ports so no zombie juice touches you during a mass zombie take down. It also has benches in the back so you can take turns resting during long Zombie sieges. The tactical step boards are installed for when you only need swords and axes for drive by mow downs. The bumpers are made of reinforced steel tubing, so no dents from smashing zombie heads! It’s full armor plated and has bullet proof windows just in case you run into other zombie hunting hordes who might try to take this bad boy from you. Like anything, there is a price attached to this fine piece of zombie fighting machinery.”

Sociopaths Salivating Over Adult Dating Site Hack

The worst people on the Internet are having a party
Crime • Views: 29,499

Nearly 4 million people’s very personal information has been exposed to the world, after a hacker broke into the database of Adult FriendFinder in March.

Adult FriendFinder asks customers to detail their interests and, based on those criteria, matches people for sexual encounters. The site, which boasts 64 million members, claims to have “helped millions of people find traditional partners, swinger groups, threesomes, and a variety of other alternative partners.”

The information Adult FriendFinder collects is extremely personal in nature. When signing up for an account, customers must enter their gender, which gender they’re interested in hooking up with and what kind of sexual situations they desire. Suggestions AdultFriendfinder provides for the “tell others about yourself” field include, “I like my partners to tell me what to do in the bedroom,” “I tend to be kinky” and “I’m willing to try some light bondage or blindfolds.”

[…]

Included in the exposed personal information are customers’ email addresses, usernames, passwords, birthdays and zip codes, in addition to their sexual preferences. No credit card data has yet been uncovered as part of the hack.

That data is incredibly revealing and potentially damaging.

Sociopaths all over the Internet are already salivating over this data — including the white supremacist criminal (CNN describes him as “controversial”) known as “weev:”

Andrew Auernheimer, a controversial computer hacker who looked through the files, used Twitter to publicly identify Adult FriendFinder customers, including a Washington police academy commander, an FAA employee, a California state tax worker and a naval intelligence officer who supposedly tried to cheat on his wife.

Asked why he was doing this, Auernheimer said: “I went straight for government employees because they seem the easiest to shame.”

Millions of others remain unnamed for now, but anyone can open the files — which remain freely available online. That could allow anyone to extort Adult FriendFinder customers.

And of course, our sociopathic stalker pal Chuck C. Johnson is ON IT, because he’s utterly obsessed with other people’s sex lives.

How Online Fundraising Confusion, Lawyers & Chuck C. Johnson Kept $60k From Tamir Rice’s Family

Crime • Views: 27,005

More: Online Activists Raised $60K for Tamir Rice’s Family — So Where Did All That Money Go?

Shaun King was furious.

The author and life coach turned activist has been one of the most prominent online voices in recent months, as protests of police impunity that began in Ferguson, Mo., spawned demonstrations in cities across the country. For those following the ever-growing roster of names of black men and boys killed by police, he has been one of the essential follows.

But his latest tweet storm, published Monday afternoon, was not about a new police shooting. In fact, it was about an old one.

For King and many of the other activists who have been some of the driving forces online behind the Black Lives Matter protests, the shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice last November as he played in a park near his home was one of the most difficult of the many anecdotes.

For many of the most vocal activists, that Tamir was a child and that his shooting was captured on grainy camera footage makes this case the most difficult to stomach. When extended video of the shooting — which showed Cleveland police tackling Tamir’s sister to the ground as she ran to his dying body — was released late last year, one of the top protest organizers in Ferguson texted to tell me it had made him physically sick, imagining what he would do if his younger sister was wounded and he was tackled while trying to help her.

So when a new court filing in the Rice family’s civil suit against the city of Cleveland revealed that Tamir has yet to be buried and that his mother was, at least temporarily, living in a homeless shelter, King was incensed.

“Absurd!” he insisted to me in a direct message on Monday afternoon, especially, he noted, because just months earlier an army of online samaritans had raised almost $60,000 for the Rice family.

So where had all of that money gone?

Timothy Kucharski had been one of two attorneys representing the Rice family for several weeks when he got a call from a friend in early December, asking about an online fundraiser he was seeing in the Rice name.

Created on the Web site youcaring.com, thousands of dollars were pouring into a fund for the Rice family. But Kucharski had never heard of King — one of the fund’s primary organizers — and Rice’s mother told him that she was unaware of the fundraiser.

As the fund surpassed $27,000, Kucharski contacted law enforcement as well as youcaring.com directly, asking that the assets being donated to the fund be seized and held for the Rice family. He contacted King, who has previously used his social media following to raise money for victims of police shootings and natural disasters and who insisted that his plan was always to give the money to the family. As they went back and forth, a number of Twitter users — led in part by right-wing blogger Charles C. Johnson — began insisting that the fundraiser was a scam and demanding it be halted.

Town’s Officers Resign En Masse When First Black Mayor Elected

Missouri Adjourning
Crime • Views: 32,257

Here’s a fun story about a bunch of very corrupt looking cops and city employees cleverly trying to appear racist to avoid being investigated for illegal shenanigans.

Voters in Parma, Missouri voted in their first African-American female mayor.

Tyrus Byrd will be sworn in as mayor on Tuesday evening, April 14 at the Parma Community Building.

According to Mayor Randall Ramsey, five out of six police officers resigned this week, effectively immediately.

Mayor Ramsey said the city’s attorney, the clerk and the waste water treatment plant supervisor also turned in resignation letters citing “safety concerns.”

“Safety concerns,” in this case however is likely a euphemism for “I don’t want to go to jail.” Either that or they’re just a bunch of racist dillholes, but I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt and go with dirty deeds as the likely story here. See, the old mayor had been in office for 37 years, and the fleeing personnel not only cut and ran without giving official notice, they wiped the computers on their way out.

Mayor Tyrus Byrd began her first day in office with a clean slate. Literally.

Mayor Byrd said the resignation letters cannot be found and that the computers were cleared.

The only plausible reason for fleeing law enforcement personnel to clear their work computers before fleeing their jobs on the eve of a newly elected administration is fear. Fear of what they’d been up to coming to light.

“I think it was pretty dirty the way they all quit without giving her a chance, but I don’t think they hurt the town with quitting because who needs six police for 740 people?” said Martha Miller of Parma.

As for why the police and three other city employees resigned, Mayor Tyrus Byrd is still trying to figure that out.

The resignation letter could not be found.

“They say we have six cops on the payroll. How can we have six cops and we go days without cops patrolling and we have these recent break-ins?” asked one Parma resident.

So there you have it, small town Parma had a Police Officer per Capita rate of 81 per 10K citizens. That is more than Washington DC, the most policed major city in the US and home base for most federal law enforcement agencies. What were Parma residents getting for their tax dollars, apparently a bunch of lazy cops notorious for not even going on patrol.

The new mayor should dig into this vigorously, direct the State AG to convene a Grand Jury and bring in the State and Federal investigative agencies if necessary. Whatever corruption was going on in that town had obviously become deeply entrenched over the last 37 years, reminiscent of the criminal government uncovered in Bell, California.

Horrible Video of SC Cop Shooting a Black Man in The Back

WARNING: graphic and disturbing
Crime • Views: 27,746

Video

This video is just awful and very difficult to watch; it shows a police officer in North Charleston, South Carolina, shooting a black man eight times in the back as he ran away, and killing him. Then the cop plants evidence on the man as he dies.

The cop was charged with murder today, for obvious reasons.

WASHINGTON — A white police officer in North Charleston, S.C., was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him shooting and killing an apparently unarmed black man in the back while he ran away.

The officer, Michael T. Slager, 33, had said he feared for his life because the man took his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. A video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as the man fled. The North Charleston mayor announced the state charges at a news conference Tuesday evening.

[…]

The video begins in the vacant lot, apparently moments after Officer Slager fired his Taser. Wires, which carry the electrical current from the stun gun, appear to be extending from Mr. Scott’s body as the two men tussle and Mr. Scott turns to run.

Something — it is not clear whether it is the stun gun — is either tossed or knocked to the ground behind the two men and Officer Slager draws his gun, the video shows. When the officer fires, Mr. Scott appears to be 15 to 20 feet away and fleeing. He falls after the last of eight shots.

The officer then runs back toward where the initial scuffle occurred and picks something off the ground. Moments later, he drops an object near Mr. Scott’s body, the video shows.
