Excerpt from Cesar and Carrie article published in 2018 where Carrie Pierce was first outed, though the focus of the article was on Cesar Armando Arvelo Santos and his life-long history of National Socialist (read Nazi) organizing:
Carrie, is not just complacent with Cesar’s fascist ideology, they actively participate in it. From attending pre-August 12th Charlottesville rallies held by white supremacists to chatting it up with his douchestaffel, goose stepping friends online. If you ever happen to get your tarot read by Carrie, be aware that whatever you tell them will be reposted on her personal Facebook mocking your problems.
Self proclaimed “investigator” and online troll, Carrie Lynn Pierce has been feeding information to the far-right and more modest conservatives online under the alias “Heather Wesley.” While some people are wise to who she really is and are knowingly spreading misinformation about her identity, many conservatives locally have no clue who they are actually communicating with online. She masquerades as a middle of the road conservative who only wants to protect the status quo and encourage people to vote for Trump and Madison Cawthorn.
Carrie’s true intention is to deceive and inject her own campaign of bigoted harassment into the forefront further radicalizing conservatives. Her reality is so far removed from the online personas she uses, we hope this article will shed light on her current positions and past affiliations. It’s important that all understand her network’s connection to Carrie’s personal harassment campaign against her perceived opponents.

Carrie Pierce may not ring a bell to many people outside of radical right and antifascist circles. She was simply a small feature in an exposé about her husband Cesar Arvelo Santos, a life-long virulent fascist who held rank in the now defunct Neo-Nazi group the Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP). Cesar was exposed as a “Commander” of TWP in 2018. Cesar was not only present at the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, he lead charges of Nazis in shield wall formations that descended upon the university city. We initially made brief mention of Carrie in our article about Cesar not only because of her complicity in his fascist organizing, but also her participation in it. At the time we’d put together a report on Cesar, Carrie seemed like small beans or low hanging fruit compared to her hubby, but now that she has become embedded within local conservative circles (largely under false pretenses), she now deserves her own article.
It’s interesting to note that while we can neither confirm nor deny whether or not Carrie Pierce was in Charlottesville, VA for the Unite the Right rally back in 2017, she was marked as “going” for the event according to Facebook and certainly took part in lots of discourse leading up to it with her Neo-Nazi and White Nationalist friends. One part we’d like to point out is the hilariously incorrect prediction “Carrie the Psychic” makes in the comments of her post. Doesn’t seem worth 2.99$/minute to call her hotline…
Carrie Pierce under her alias “Heather Wesley” is one of the most incessant posters and personalities on several “private” conservative pages on Facebook. She provides personal information on any she deems her enemy to Chad Nesbitt of “Skyline News” as an investigative journalist, Adrian AJ Fox (running for sheriff), Sanjit Patel, a local provocateur via West Asheville Neighborhood Alliance (WANA), and various other local goons. People should be alarmed that the information they are being fed is coming from a such a clear source of violent white supremacist ideology. Her audience might find a foul taste in their mouth if they knew of her Neo-Nazi connections. After all, the main membership of these pages tend to claim a vague form of patriotism that allegedly denounces racism and fascism. Even more alarming is the fact that Chad Nesbitt and Skyline News are completely aware of the fact that “Heather Wesley” is in fact Carrie Pierce, and actively provide her with a platform for a continuous, baseless targeted harassment campaign. This is not by mistake; the thirst for attention and notoriety dismisses any concerns of accurate reporting by Skyline News. With this tactic, Chad Nesbitt’s credibility goes (even farther) out the window along with his concerns for his readers’ safety.
Chad Nesbitt of the pseudo-news source “Skyline News” has made mention of his prized “Investigative Journalist” online before, and on their birthday nonetheless. On August 1st, Chad Nesbitt wished his journalist “Raven” a happy birthday. As noted above, Carrie Pierce’s birthday is August 1st, 1979. Carrie has an alternate Facebook account under the moniker “Raven Hex”. Not only does Carrie use the moniker “Hex13” for her Parler and Minds.com accounts as per ‘Heather Wesley’, she also uses her birth year in many of her main accounts. Carrie’s twitters are @Cpierce79 and @Folkbunny79. Thanks to Chad Nesbitt’s awful security culture, and Carrie’s extensive online fingerprint we can confirm that the “Raven” whom Nesbitt is referring to is none other than Carrie Lynn Pierce. Thanks Chad, and happy late birthday Carrie.
Unfortunately for Carrie, the connections don’t stop with Nesbitt’s loose lips. As you can see below, Carrie Pierce and Heather Wesley’s accounts share quite a few similarities. Both accounts are self-proclaimed Norse Pagans, anti-Communist, anti-antifa, have a military background, and adhere to the “Goth” style. On her account as Heather Wesley, Carrie even admits that she isn’t who her fake account reflects. Notice that on March 16 both Carrie’s main account and her Heather Wesley account updated their profile picture with the same exact frame. Carrie’s “Heather Wesley” account also regularly interacts with Chad Nesbitt and his wife Nancy Nesbitt. Carrie’s main profile and her Heather Wesley profile interact with and have mutual friends. Carrie even uses a fake liberal Facebook account to gather information on the left.. This additional fake account also has mutual friends with Carrie’s “Heather Wesley” profile. Carrie’s need for retribution and validation has left a messy but cohesive trail of her online motives and movements.
Carrie incessantly posts on conservative Facebook forums as “Heather Wesley” and moderates a few as well. Not only does Carrie moderate for Buncombe & NC Conservatives Facebook group, She runs WNC Conservatives Underground. WNC Conservatives Underground is a forum designed to gather information on the left and used to harass and intimidate community members.
Next we’re going to take a look at how the information Carrie compiles on anyone she deems a “member of antiFa” rapidly ends up on various white supremacist platforms. Carrie was originally outed as a part of the larger white supremacist movement in August of 2018. You’ll notice when looking back at many of her social media sock accounts that the creation dates are typically September or October of 2018. In response to her and her husband Cesar’s outing as a lifelong Neo-Nazi, and because she thinks of herself as some sort of tech-wiz Carrie began a campaign of targeted harassment against anyone and everyone with open stances against white supremacy in Asheville that she could find on social media. It’s important to note that despite the intention of the harassment campaign, it created new ways for targeted antifascists to band together- including self-defense classes and raising enough money for firearms classes and concealed carry permits.
Now let’s look to some of Carrie’s old friends and how they link to the proliferation of targeted harassment publications filled with gross misogyny and transphobia. The key players here are going to be Brad Griffin AKA Hunter Wallace of the Occidental Dissident, and Michael Carothers AKA Michael Weaver of the White Information Network. Atlanta Antifascists have done some amazing work outlining both Carothers and Griffin and the history and extent of their organizing in white nationalist circles. The targeted harassment campaign against Carrie’s perceived opponents was published back in January 2019 first on Carothers’ White Information Network, then on Stormfront, the oldest white power website created by Klan leader Don Black back in 1995.
Bradley Dean Griffin of Eufaula, Alabama, has an extensive history of harassment campaigns against perceived enemies. Griffin worked with white nationalist Daniel McMahon (AKA “Jack Corbin” and “Pale Horse”) against his opponents. McMahon spent years harassing anti-racists – especially women – but was finally arrested last year for cyberstalking, threats, and interference against a Black candidate for office. White supremacist Robert Bowers who in October of 2018 murdered eleven people and wounded six in an attack on the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, had earlier offered Griffin an address for an anti-racist blogger targeted by Griffin.
Michael David Carothers has been an active white supremacist for over two decades. Carothers has been active in the National Alliance, and also in the white supremacist “World Church of the Creator” for several years beginning in 1999. Along with being a key APUSA member (tying him to events like Rock Stone Mountain II) he maintains the “White Information Network” site. This is one place Carrie was able to get the doxes of antifascists put online. White Information Network is a site where Carothers asks readers such things as to support terrorists like “Olympic Park Bomber” Eric Rudolph.
Before Carrie Lynn Pierce worked for Chad Nesbitt at Skyline News or even moved to Asheville, she already had tried to establish a career in the paranormal. This will constitute as the only journalistic experience Carrie has ever had, and sadly the most the most thorough of her work compared to her current job with Skyline News. Back in 2007 after her bid in the Air Force, Carrie moved to Canada and became to the director of her own paranormal research team called The Meadowvale Spookies. In her description of herself as Director on the team’s website, she connects herself to the “Valkyrie” alias again, and confirms many of her past cities lived in, etc.
She even co-hosted a brief podcast known as Dead Hour Radio about the paranormal where she again ties us to another recycled alias, “Scary Carrie”. When Carrie made one of her many psychic website profiles, she ties to a variation on her “Valkyrie” alias adding on to it to make it “Northern Valkyrie” to speak to her living in Canada at the time.
It is unsurprising that even back in 2010, Carrie was performing the exact same behaviors she’s exhibiting now – a campaign to malign and harass her perceived opponents. As evidenced with a couple of screenshots below, Carrie began a flame war between the community of mediums she was operating in up in Canada after starting a website attempting to call out another psychic. Carrie’s handling of being questioned about the validity of her words lead to backlash in a thread of comments naming all of Carrie’s information and alleged misdeeds. One of which is the allegation she was scamming the Make A Wish foundation, which would indeed be particularly nasty and not outside the scope of possibility.
There were also a lot of foul characterizations and insults we didn’t want to publish and give a platform from these comments either. Our enemies are our enemies and we will give them no quarter, but sinking to their level in insults is something we’ve learned causes more harm to our friends than our enemies.
Joshua Cody Case
Lives in: Enka/Candler area of Western North Carolina. Previously of Canton, NC.
Physical Description: About 5’10”, 165 lbs, blue eyes, shoulder length brown hair, long and patchy brown beard, has a celtic cross tattoo above and totenkopf tattoo below- on the topside of his left forearm, often wears baseball caps with hard bent bill.
Asheville AntiRacism originally outed Joshua Cody Case as Grand Dragon of the Patriotic Brigade Knights (PBK) of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) back in March of 2016 shortly after recruitment flyers for the PBK showed up on car windshields in town. Back in 2016, exposing Joshua Case occurred via flyers posted around Asheville, and on Facebook. Today we are going to more thoroughly map out Joshua Cody Case’s violent racism, long-standing membership and affiliation with the KKK, and recent engagement with local protests.
Before we get started, here’s Josh Case literally just repeatedly saying he was the one who put out the KKK recruitment flyers back in 2016. And to ice that first slice of cake, he then shares the local news story about the recruitment flyers with the ever-cryptic post along side it “What say you?”
Below you’ll see Josh Case posing with his KKK handbook for the PBK’s Facebook page. The Patriotic Brigade Knights are one of many Klan groups who claim to have membership across all 13 southern states, though research suggests the PBK’s total active membership numbers are likely in the dozens. They are headquartered in Gladewater, TX with mail-in applications linking back to a P.O. box there. The PBK claims they are a “Christian Identity Klan” though they also openly welcome people of other faiths. They specifically mention and welcome Odinists, also known as followers of Asatru, on their website. For more information on white supremacist ties to a particular Odinist group – Asatru Folk Assembly (AFA) – we suggest our previous dox of local AFA member Christopher Michael Pack.
Joshua Cody Case was appointed to the position “Grand Dragon” in the state of North Carolina. This rank within the KKK is not a passive role. It requires that the participant communicate with the larger network as well as set up a cell in their region or “realm”. Duties include assigning tasks to others such as recruitment, treasury, and weapons training. The KKK symbol seen on Josh’s hat and handbook has gone through several transformations over the years, but today most klansmen understand the blood drop to represent blood spilled by white people “fighting for their race.”
It is also considered the primary symbol of KKK groups, and goes by such names as the “blood drop” cross, or as the KKK often refers to it “MIOAK” or “Mystic Insignia of a Klansman”. It is most commonly found on their flags, patches, and as you can see below, their handbooks. There are a large number of KKK symbols, dog whistles, and abbreviations which we’ll go more into below.
While we’re talking about identifying symbols of the KKK, lets talk about the Celtic Cross and Totenkompf, what they mean, where they’re from, and the fact they are tattooed onto Joshua Case’s left forearm.
The Celtic Cross that adorns Josh’s forearm is not inherently racist but has been co-opted by white supremacists in the past few decades. It is particularly popular in Germany with neo-nazis as the swastika is banned in that country. You may recognize the symbol as a Catholic cross, hence the Irish history, but since Case grew up a Baptist we can only assume the tattoo has nothing to do with church.
The totenkopf, or Death’s Head, was a symbol worn on the uniforms of SS officers in Hitler’s Army. Both the Celtic Cross and totenkopf are more closely associated with neo-nazis than the KKK, which leads us to the conclusion that Josh is willing to join more than one white power movement.
Here’s a brief breakdown of some of the KKK terminology and abbreviations that are used in the below images and their meanings:
Race War -A longtime popularized idea by white supremacists and hardcore neo-nazis is to create and take part in a Race War. It is in fact a founding principle to begin a race war of groups like Atomwaffen and Feuerkrieg Division. You may see this referred to as RaHoWa a shortening of ‘Racial Holy War’, or ‘The Day of the Rope’, or as GTKRWN an abbreviation of ‘Gas the Kikes, Race War Now’. The concept of a race war has been popularized by books like The Turner Diaries and Seige.
ORION – shorthand for “Our Race Is Our Nation”
88 – 88 is a white supremacist numerical shorthand for “Heil Hitler.” Since H is the eighth letter of the alphabet, 88 = HH or Heil Hitler.
14/110 – 14 is a reference to the ’14 words’ a popular white supremacist slogan- ‘We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children. 109 is white supremacist numeric shorthand for the number of countries anti-Semites claim Jews have been expelled from. In calling for the expulsion of Jews from the U.S., they often refer to the U.S. as the 110th.
FGRN: Shorthand for “For God, Race and Nation”
The Organization – The members of the KKK commonly refer to the KKK itself as such ambiguous alternatives as ‘The Organization’, ‘The Empire’, and most notably ‘The Invisible Empire’
League of the South flag – The League of the South flag, nicknamed “The Cushman Flag” and “The Southern Nationalist Flag” – is is all-white with a black ‘X’ spreading from corner to corner. The League of the South is a white nationalist, neo-confederate group with hardcore neo-nazi ties.
AKIA – shorthand for “A Klansman I Am”
KLASP – shorthand for “Klannish Loyalty, A Sacred Principle”
Joshua Cody Case was born and raised in Candler, NC and has spent most of his life there, aside from a short time living in Canton, NC. Josh Case’s primary interests are hunting, firearms, and wilderness survival. Case used to frequent such bars as The Mountain View in Candler. He has been fired from several jobs since he was first ousted as a lowly racist in 2016, but still finds temporary work in construction as a backhoe operator or tree trimmer.
It’s both interesting and ironic the level of identification he has with a “redneck” life, given the diverse history of what a “redneck” is/was. Not only is it used as a demonstrative for the poor, white, rural southerner – but it is more specifically tied to a racially diverse coalition of coal miners in Appalachia in the early 20th century. These coal miners came together specifically to fight the coal companies’ deadly grip on the lives of the working people and their families. The term “redneck” came from the red bandannas they wrapped around their necks as they marched on Blair Mountain during the Mine Wars.
This side of southern history has sadly been largely hidden and looked over, which has directly led to an identity crisis for much of the working class south. That identity crisis is directly correlated to the co-optation by white supremacist ideology of southern history.
Josh Case has recently come back into the local discourse after he showed up to the counter demonstration responding to the “DEFUND” mural painted on the road outside of the police station in downtown Asheville. The initial call for a patriot presence on social media came from local far-right grifter ‘journalist’ Chad Nesbitt and agitator Sanjit Patel (but more on them later). Josh Case started using more palatable group affiliations to publicly identity with over time. Going from the KKK to League of the South (LOS), to the III% militia. Despite his fluidity in his affiliations, his virulently racist ideals have stood the test of time. The fact that we have to dive back into this sorry excuse for a human is telling. It shows that while he might have changed handbooks, he is still as violent as ever, and not honest about his past or present intentions.
Locals have known of Joshua Case and his role as Grand Dragon of the PBK of the KKK for 5 years now. His presence at the counter demonstration with a semi-automatic rifle was immediately recognized, noted, and shared throughout the community. This has since led to an arrest warrant for Case being issued for his possession of and carrying a firearm at a public protest.
To be clear, we do not rely on the cops or courts to do our work for us. Regardless of when our enemies do become targets of the state, it does nothing to change the fact that the cops uphold white supremacy and the status quo. They still attack us and everyone who resists oppression. This is why we believe we must rely on ourselves to protect ourselves and stop the fascists.
What we continue to see is that Joshua Cody Case exhibits the same historical behaviors, including violent threats, dishonesty, and publicly posturing as a victim and ‘patriot’.
Now lets briefly talk about Josh Case and his history of irresponsible and unsafe practices with weapons. First you can see a 7 hour difference in these posts of Josh Case getting ready to get his drink on for the night, and then the resulting misfire of a pistol into his own leg. As gun owners we know that firearm safety is the most important aspect of gun ownership and operation. It’s impossible to safely handle a firearm if you are under the influence of alcohol, no matter how much you feel you deserve the buzz.
We have extensive archives of the extremely racist, disgusting words and images Joshua Case has shared over the years. While we don’t always feel it’s necessary to further publicize such gross ideological positions, it is also important for people to understand exactly who they are dealing with when they come across people like Josh Case in everyday life. Whether it be at a protest, on the street, in a bar, at work, or even just being in the same Facebook group. The following screenshots are just some of that documentation.
“However, I was concerned about some of the Discord messages mentioned in the article. REMINDER: Do not post negative things about other races; do not advocate violence; do not use crude language. In short, do not say anything that, if leaked, would make us look bad.”
Beyond antisemitic acts of vandalism, many of the messages sent by Anticom supporters cross the line into clearly inciting violence and present serious public safety concerns. A Dropbox link posted in Anticom’s Discord user iSpringfield in April contained a folder of manuals detailing how to create various forms of explosives, such as grenades and blasting caps. (In part one of this story, we showed how earlier chats in the Anticom server included a proposed backpack bomb terror attack against antifa protesters.)
Make no mistake, there are those who wish to claim these mountains for their own hate-filled ideology. Fascist organizing is a threat to our communities and our communities deserve better! When the seeds of hate start to grow into weeds, pull them from your garden by the root.

**CW: Description of violent child abuse**
James Patrick Shillinglaw is a long-time white supremacist in the south, attending various rallies over the years that are mostly tied to confederate monuments. Shillinglaw has resided in Florida, Virginia, South Carolina, and North Carolina, with the majority of his recent years living in the Jacksonville, FL area and working as a “historian” at the Southern History Museum. It is unlikely he still works there officially, though it is likely he remains on their Board of Directors. He can be seen as early as August 2015 in the public sphere, when he was escorted out of a Lake City, FL council meeting to retire the city seal including the confederate flag, while chanting “Southern lives matter, southern lives matter”. James Shillinglaw is also notable on the Appointed Staff list for the Florida Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
Rallies across the southern US in support of the southern confederacy and its relics have long been a bastion of racially-based intimidation and hate, and displays of white supremacy- all thinly veiled (if veiled at all) as “southern heritage”. While there are many in the south who have little to no opinion about the Confederate flag or any of the 100s of monuments coming down, the unseen reality is the rallies around them have been used as networking opportunities for white supremacist, white nationalist, and fascist groups for decades. The Ku Klux Klan uses the confederate flag as its imagery, the League of the South (LOS) uses a variation as its imagery, Identity Dixie (ID) uses a variation of its imagery, the list goes on.
The vast majority of Shillinglaw’s interest and activity in white supremacist movements is tied to the failed southern confederacy and confederate monuments. Confederate monuments are also part of a documented historical legacy known as The Lost Cause of the Confederacy, or the Cult of the Lost Cause. This refers to an ideology of pseudo-history based on negation, that supposes the American Civil War was not centrally based on slavery, and repaints the Confederacy as ‘just, equitable and heroic’ instead. If you look at the history of confederate monuments being built around the US, there are waves of new installations post-WWI and again in the 1950’s and 1960’s. This is because just after WWI the last of the shamed confederate veterans were dying, and groups like Heirs to the Confederacy or United Daughters of the Confederacy had statues commissioned and dedicated as a way to subvert their legacy of white supremacy and put a heroic, selfless, idealized spin on it, denying any immorality. The second wave occurred in the 50’s and 60’s as (you guessed it) a reactionary antagonism of the Civil Rights movement.
Before we get into Shillinglaw’s specific ties to white supremacist organizations and actions, we’d like to share another aspect of his history of violence. In November 2013, James Patrick Shillinglaw was arrested and held before being bonded out for felony aggravated child abuse (827.03(1)(A)) in Jacksonville, FL. The details of his actions are abhorrent, and include beating and choking the victim for interrupting him on the phone. The specific statute he was charged with reads as follows:
827.03 Abuse, aggravated abuse, and neglect of a child; penalties.—
(1) DEFINITIONS.—As used in this section, the term:
(a) “Aggravated child abuse” occurs when a person:1. Commits aggravated battery on a child;2. Willfully tortures, maliciously punishes, or willfully and unlawfully cages a child; or3. Knowingly or willfully abuses a child and in so doing causes great bodily harm, permanent disability, or permanent disfigurement to the child.
By the time two years had passed, James Patrick Shillinglaw exponentially stepped up the outward nature of his hatred and violence with an attendance to the deadly Unite the Right (UTR) rally in Charlottesville, VA in 2017 as an open member of League of the South (LOS). Shillinglaw is on video and in photos from both the August 11th torch march and August 12th rally wearing an LOS hat, LOS T-shirt, and holding an LOS flag. League of the South is a neo-confederate, white nationalist, and white supremacist organization co-founded by anti-semite, pro-slavery, slug Michael Hill in 1994. The group was part of the Neo-Nazi Nationalist Front alongside the National Socialist Movement (NSM), the now laughably defunct Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP), and Vanguard America (VA) since splintered and rebranded as Patriot Front (PF). They participated in the Pikeville, KY rally in April 2017, Charlottesville UTR rally and torch march, and the White Lives Matter rally in Shelbyville, TN as key organizers in all three events (and many more).
As pointed out on Twitter by users @EmilyGorcenski @TTOJAF and @m1523751, James Shillinglaw is documented in LOS group pictures, marching with the League of the South into Charlottesville on August 12th, and taking part in the torch march on the night of August 11th. In particular, the League of the South march into Charlottesville on August 12th is cited as one of the more violent melee attacks of the day, where anyone in their way was met with attack. This included James Patrick Shillinglaw, as he is seen on video assaulting someone with his flagpole here at the 0:35 mark.
Not only is James Shillinglaw a League of the South member, Unite The Right rally attendee and convicted child abuser, he is now being exposed as a member of American Identity Movement (AmIM), formerly known as Identity Evropa (IE). In the Discord chat logs for the White Nationalist group formerly known as Identity Evropa, which were leaked earlier this year by Unicorn Riot, James Shillinglaw operated under the username “Peter Long”.
James Patrick Shillinglaw
Address: 409 Spring Street, Jamestown, NC 27282
Vehicle: Mid/late 2000s Red Dodge Caravan, NC plate HAX3612.
Physical Description: About 6’4″, 190 lbs, short light brown hair mixed with grey and white, hazel eyes, small chin, he often has a well-trimmed boxed beard of the same hair colors.
Profession: Last known job was as Chief Historian at the Museum of Southern History in Jacksonville, FL. Also retired US Navy.
Spouse: Karen Faith (Scott) Shillinglaw
Usernames: shillcw, Peter Long, jimshill, shilljim, angrysaxon14
James Patrick Shillinglaw’s personal Facebook and Twitter pages draw a clear line between his recycled usernames, including that of ‘Peter Long’ which he used in Discord. He then goes on to use his other usernames as the actual handles/URLs for these not-so-anonymous accounts, tying himself from one account with pictures of himself to one without a legal name and filled with awful hate and bigotry.
Within the discord chat itself ‘Peter Long’ doesn’t post too much, but he does let us know that at the time of joining the hate group he lives in Florida. By the time of his last message before the publishing of the leaked chat, he has moved to North Carolina and is actively trying to rally people to (you guessed it) a confederate monument rally in Raleigh, NC. It is worth noting that within the past year, James Patrick Shillinglaw has remained very active in attending confederate rallies throughout his new home state of North Carolina, including as recently as the October rally in Pittsboro, NC.
In the few posts as Peter Long in discord, Shillinglaw shows us he is actively participating by throwing up an Identity Evropa sticker, and shares his preferred white supremacist twitter handle ‘AngrySaxon14’. This is of course a reference to the 14 words, the white nationalist slogan coined by virulent racist David Lane. On discord, Shillinglaw also incessantly asks how the hate group is doing. And ya know, why not mutually follow yourself from your personal account and your even fashier account? And your wife’s racist account? Can’t see how that will go wrong.
From his Facebook to both of his Twitters, the likes and followers are a litany of white nationalist, racist, and fascist, pages and personas. The same can be said of his wife Karen Faith Scott Shillinglaw, who is not a known member of any organization but needs to be held accountable for her views as well. Below are just a couple of the many, many… many examples. Such examples will include 4 different ‘White Lives Matter’ pages, ‘White and Proud’, and 2 different Pioneer Little Europe pages. Pioneer Little Europe is a failed white nationalist project aimed at creating whites-only communities across the United States, most notably in Leith, North Dakota.
James and Karen Shillinglaw also used to share Karen’s Facebook page, before she recently reverted back to her own. Even functioning as a couple’s Facebook page, they had white nationalist support for their photos like League of the South leader Michael Hill. It seems they’ve only been married for a couple years and their connection linked to their support of the southern confederacy. Karen and James are pictured one after another speaking in defense of the confederate flag on the Lake City, FL logo previously mentioned, before James was escorted out.
In summation, James Patrick Shillinglaw is an incredibly racist, violent, active dues paying member of both white nationalist orgnaizations American Identity Movement and League of the South, and is also a known child abuser. He continues to show up for confederate rallies across the region, known recruiting grounds for exactly the same kinds of organizations he actively participates in. James Shillinglaw is a disgusting excuse for a human being and should be shown no mercy for the atrocious actions he’s taken and continues to support. Don’t give him an inch.

This is a basic appeal and general warning to the North Carolina community regarding Tia Azar Foster and Jacob Robert Martin of Ananda Animal Refuge and Rescue, as well as Mercy Line Transport based out of the Yadkinville area. This document will concentrate on Tia, as Jacob will be getting his own exposure.
Tia Foster, also known online as Tia Walsh and Tia Chase, has been hiding some serious skeletons in her closet. Most animal rights activists know Foster by the name Tia Walsh, the lady online that rescues chickens and lives at her bird and fish sanctuary, Ananda Animal Refuge and Rescue. White Nationalist activists know her online as Tia Chase or Tia Chase II. All three social media profiles are down as of this writing, but we know without a doubt these three profiles belong to Tia Azar Foster. The profile “Tia Chase” came under scrutiny when Tia started trying to do jail support for white supremacist murderer James Alex Fields. When Foster had trouble locating Fields in the prison system, she began spreading unfounded conspiracy theories on social media that Heather Heyer’s death was a false flag operation. Tia took her partner Jacob’s alias’ surname “Chase”. Under these profiles is where she would spew hatred towards minorities and organize with fellow fascists. “Tia Walsh” was a bit more palatable with no real political talk except for animal rights, and being the profile that ran the sanctuary’s facebook page. A dead gofundme link for Ananda shows Tia’s real name, Tia Foster, when input to a Google search engine.
Coming originally from the leftist Occupy movement in NYC in 2011, Foster has been a political scenester for almost a decade. Fast forward to 2019 and she has been reveling in her popularity among the neo-nazis, alt-right and eco-fascist camps. While Tia has kept her love for liberating animals and speaking for their rights, she has also adopted some very abhorrent views of her fellow humans. This includes racism, Islamophobia, transphobia, homophobia and antisemitism – all of which are tied together under Eco-fascism.
Eco-fascism is not a new movement, though there is a current resurgence of white supremacists adopting a contrived environmentalism to their already violently racist and bigoted views. Eco-fascism can best be summed up as a blending of environmental or ecological views of saving the earth, with the means of doing so rooted in a hatred of multiculturalism, or any people seen as “less than”- stemming from the belief that the world is overpopulated and these “undesirables” need to go by any means necessary. Both the El Paso and Christchurch mass shooters were self described eco-fascists as stated in their manifestos. The basic belief of shutting off borders to migrants and turning the nation into a white ethnostate is at the core of this movement. Violence and intimidation that targets refugees and other marginalized people of color are the tools used to achieve these goals. This is Tia’s new fan club, the neo-nazis that wrap their genocidal views in deep ecology and animal rights activism. Other people who have been near this putrid soul have no clue what she really thinks about her community.
Let’s back up a bit to get some context of who Tia is and how she arrived here. After moving out of her parent’s upper-class home in Ohio, Foster moved to Brooklyn and became a familiar face in leftist circles like Occupy and the animal rights scenes. Attempting to start animal rights groups in NYC, she was criticized for the lack of participation of people of color. This criticism was not received well and Tia began to slip further right rather than actually reflecting on her own lack of intersectionality within her work. Her ego took precedence above progress and concerns of inclusion.
Falling out with the leftist crowd led Tia to look elsewhere to continue her animal rights activism, where she found “Anarcho-Nationalism” and the “New Right” the predecessor of the alt-right. As early as 2012 Foster was being interviewed on white nationalist podcasts, the far right discussing her on 4chan (a popular chat forum amongst white supremacists) and even Matt Parrott essays. In a white nationalist podcast called “Attack the System” hosted by racist Keith Preston, Tia spends an hour talking about her early years transitioning to the far right. Topics include when she was called out for posting holocaust denial propaganda, loathing of politically correct language, rejection of feminism and the JQ (the dog whistle for “the Jewish Question” among neo-nazis). Here she explains her disdain for the left in general and talks about leaving that scene after only a short time.
In the years following, Tia continued to be sort of an anomaly as a far right female personality online and an animal rights activist showing up at protests. Note that most of the activists in the animal rights movement had no knowledge of her antisemitism and only saw her as an animal loving “comrade”. She talks about co-opting leftist terminology and tactics to convert leftist environmentalists to national socialism. Her more underground work might be of some interest to people who work with her in real life. Activities like attempting to do prisoner support for James Alex Fields, the white nationalist murderer who ran down anti-racists indiscriminately in Charlottesville, killing Heather Heyer. Or her and Jacob’s eco-fascist pet project called “White Tree” which has talked about organizing actions to post anti-immigration flyers at “liberal” universities. These targets included North Star LGBTQ Center Incendiary Brewing Company, Forsythe County Safety Center and Emanuel Temple, a synagogue. They also talked about flyering UNC Chapel Hill and Wake Forest. We think it is unfair for people to stand a chance of arrest protecting animals’ rights while unwittingly standing next to a virulent fascist.
This is as much of a warning to the general community as an appeal for activists of good faith to distance themselves from the disgusting views of white nationalists and the people who try to infiltrate our spaces. If you believe in intersectionality, diversity, anti-racism and fighting oppression of any kind this appeal is for you and we are glad you’ve found it. Fitting a hierarchy on oppression is a slippery slope into a fascist mindset. One where you can spin the narrative that Jews are the very people creating the environmental crisis by having a pro-immigration agenda that destroys the stolen land we now call the United States. We believe in rights for all non-human animals and protection of the natural environment, but not at the expense of violence and marginalization of other human beings. This world is on fire and we need to do something to put that fire out, that certainly doesn’t mean oppressing and blaming people who are turned then into scapegoats for the masses. Clearly this is counter to the animal rights mantra of being the voice of those who don’t have one. Does the child locked in a U.S. concentration camp have a voice? Or the millions of wrongly incarcerated black and brown people have an effective way to communicate what it feels like to be forgotten?
Tia and her partner, Jacob Martin AKA Jacob Chase, have been known to engage with groups like Direct Action Everywhere (DXE), Anonymous for the Voiceless, and Mercy Line Transport among others. These groups might be doing some really good work for animals but we ask with compassion to those working with or within these groups- where do you draw the line with people that you work with to save animal lives? Are you okay with your Jewish, black, brown, trans and queer comrades working with somebody that considers them subhuman? Just because you have a few solid ideals doesn’t negate all the other problematic ideas you believe. A broken clock is only correct twice a day. We certainly wouldn’t attend Hitler’s potluck just because it was vegan.
Tia operated several facebook accounts that have all been removed or deplatformed by the time this is being published. However several anti-racist researchers were able to archive quite a bit of information before Foster went dark on the main web. This includes an extensive friends list of neo-nazis, “likes” of neo-nazi and transphobic facebook groups, as well of loads of bigoted comments.
Tia and Jacob are hiding their true intentions and using animal liberation to do so. Let’s take a look at the company she keeps when not advocating for animals. A video uploaded to youtube on February 17th, 2014 by “bekindtoanimals100” shows Tia and her friend complaining about being asked to leave a headshop in Virginia for not following the common rule of abstaining from saying the word “bong”. You might recognize the man in the video as Alex McNabb, the neo-nazi podcaster who was fired from his job as an EMT after he was exposed as a neo-nazi podcaster on “The Daily Shoah”, and saying, among other things, that he had tortured a black child with an oversized needle. McNabb was also a participant at the deadly Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally. Not only does Tia hang out with internet nazis, she has been hanging out with them in real life for quite some time. This is not a new trend for her and if you are surprised by all this information, know that you are not the only one.

In actuality, this is just yet another rebranding, the last being from The National Youth Front to Identity Evropa – both of which headed by Nathan Damigo. The National Youth Front served as the youth wing of the neo-nazi American Freedom Party, which is headed by long-time white supremacist William Daniel Johnson, a wealthy corporate lawyer. William Johnson was also named on the official delegate list for Trump’s 2016 Republic National Convention. But guess what, the American Freedom Party was yet ANOTHER REBRAND in this history of rebrands, from the group’s former name- the American Third Position (A3P). And wouldn’t you know, American Third Position was just another rebranding of the Golden State Party born directly out of the Cali-based white power skinhead group Freedom 14, named in reference to the “14 word” slogan of neo-nazi notoriety produced by David Lane.This incessant shell game attempting to obfuscate their glaring neo-nazi reality is obvious to antifascists and antiracists who pay attention, and it all leads to the organization currently known as American Identity Movement.
Meet Nathan Charles Barker, Identity Evropa/American Identity Movement’s weekend activist and incessant re-tweeter.
Over the past few weeks we’ve seen a lot of stories hitting the mainstream news cycle shedding light on some of the abhorrent aspects of the US migrant detention centers and the current wave of human rights atrocities happening at the hands of Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). From the revelation about ICE officials now no longer officially keeping track of how many detainees die in US custody, to the fact migrants will now be housed in concentration camps formally used to intern Japanese-Americans during World War II – and Indigenous peoples back in the 18th century.
The images and details of men, women, and children becoming ill – some dying in custody, mothers begging for water and medicine, all topped with the video of Justice Department lawyer Sarah Fabian arguing against giving blankets, toothbrushes or soap to imprisoned children is – to put it mildly – devastating. But while we could do as so many others do and spend all of 10 seconds on the topic before we keep scrolling, we’re going to do a bit more. Hopefully this small example can help others see one way they can take the next step and take part in actively combating fascist horrors.
Before we get into the meat of article, let’s briefly address the recent commentary on the (correct) use of the term concentration camp in describing migrant detention centers. Even though some news outlets have correctly used the label, the cacophonous hand-wringing responses can’t bring themselves to acknowledge reality. To that, we’d like to share an aptly put take on this topic from Black Rose Anarchist Federation, recently posted on IGD. We’d like to recommend the entirety of that article linked here:
“The actual term “concentration camp” comes directly out of European colonialism in the Americas with the term first used by the Spanish colonizers of Cuba in 1897. Overseeing Spanish colonialism in Cuba and the Philippines was General Valeriano Weyler who first applied the term (reconcentrados) to his tactic of containing anti-Spanish insurgents in Cuba. While he gave the practice a name, he was not the first to use the tactic. He learned the tactic from studying US genocider General William Tecumseh Sherman’s campaigns against the Indigenous peoples of the Great Plains. The term itself is, therefore, directly connected to the United States’ own history of ethnic cleansing and “frontier” control.”
The CHUD of Cheraw, Pt. 2:
Recently, we reported on the “John Wesley SC” member of American Identity Movement (AmIM)- which is a recent, stale rebranding of the violent, SPLC-designated hate group Identity Evropa (IE). Utilizing the trove of Discord chat logs released to the public by the journalists at Unicorn Riot, we provided the details of our findings proving “JohnWesley” is in fact Joshua Keith Williams of Cheraw, South Carolina.
Today we bring you the other half of the disgustingly, and sadly, bigoted William’s household. Meet Terry Nicole Ritz Williams of Cheraw, South Carolina. Terry is the longtime wife and partner of Joshua Keith Williams, but has her own separate levels of involvement and promulgation of white supremacy, racism, and ethno-nationalism that needs it’s own addressing.
Terry Nicole Ritz Williams
Physical Description: About 5’4″, average/thick build, long blonde hair naturally straight but often curled, and blue eyes.
Address: 6070 Highway 52 North, Cheraw, South Carolina 29520
Profession: Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner
Occupation: Nurse, at Embrace Hospice
- 116 N. Liberty Street, Bennettsville, SC 29512
Spouse: Joshua Keith Williams
Terry Williams posts in the leaked discord server under the alias “MaryJuneVoss-SC”, and while she only posts 18 messages she sure tells a lot about herself. Her very first message proclaims her gratitude for entering into the organization- which is best known for it’s key organizing and participation in the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA back in 2017. Before ending the message there, “MaryJuneVoss” blabs, “I am @John Wesley-SC wife”. A simple stroll through family photos acquired in our intel gathering on Joshua Williams readily reveal Terry Ritz Williams as the racist mouth behind the keyboard of “MaryJuneVoss-SC”.
Some of Terry William’s other messages that stick out rather sorely are her racist rants. Like we see all too often, the narrative is non-nonsensical and the vitriolic, buffoonish racism is all we’re left with.
Later on, Terry Williams can be seen sharing a petition pleading the US government to address the widely propagated myth of “white genocide” in reference to debunked myths of Afrikaner farmers being murdered that somehow make the wild mental leap of equating land redistribution with race war. This is one of the most popularized examples of dangerous misinformation that spurs on the impressionable minds of often young, disaffected white men who we then see go on to commit mass murders believing these lies.
Terry Ritz Williams follows the lead of her hyper-active yet underachieving fascist husband Joshua Keith Williams with how she goes about furthering her involvement in white supremacist circles. First, it didn’t take long to find her youtube channel under the same moniker of “Mary June Voss” riddled with the likes of anti-feminist clunker David Rubin and violent racist leader of the Nazi-magnet English Defence League, Tommy Robinson.
Terry goes further with her close involvement with the Sandhills Kindred of the Asatru Folk Assembly (AFA), headed up by the Hester family just over the border in North Carolina. AFA sets itself aside from non-racist pagan churches by claiming these gods belong solely to white European descendants. Many Asatru churches have denied the validity of AFA and other racially charged groups by banding together under the name “Heathens United Against Racism” (HUAR) and The Asatru Community (TAC). Together over 100 groups have signed “Declaration 127” denouncing any heathen churches that promote hatred and bigotry, such as AFA.
Terry confirms her job and profession on social media, sharing posts that literal advertisements for the work she does for Embrace Hospice serving the larger Bennettsville and Cheraw areas of South Carolina. Social media also works to confirm her birthday, which is easily verifiable via voter records.
We refuse to cede space to any bigoted, white nationalist fucks like Terry and Josh Williams. We will continue to air out their personal details with the intention of creating community self-awareness that can better stand up to the hate CHUDs like these seek to spread.

THE CHUD FROM CHERAW:
“John Wesley” says he fears being doxxed and exposed but couldn’t stay off the internet. For somebody who postures as wanting to protect their identity, he sure put out a lot of disgusting content that warrants investigation. Who would dedicate so much effort in repeating antisemitic, racist, sexist and homophobic ear drool? Does he live next door spouting out this garbage behind closed curtains? Does he work next to us, pretending to be civil simply to remain employed? Does he secretly despise certain children while he teaches in schools? We had to find out because nobody likes a quisling coward.
Beyond being a mouth piece for the Alt-Right and the newly inflated white supremacist movement in the Unitxd Snakes, we were able to uncover that he fancies himself a writer for far-right websites and is an active regional leader and member of Identity Evropa (IE), which has recently attempted to rebrand as the American Identity Movement (AmIM). Over the past three years “Wesley” has finely tuned his image and message to get a large following on twitter. What started off as tired GOP/Neo-conservative dribble has transformed itself into “redpilled” bigotry and pure hatred.
“John Wesley” is in fact Joshua Keith Williams of Cheraw, South Carolina.

As many people know, what gets put online tends to stay there. Sometimes you have to dig for it, but it’s there. Sometimes you have to put together small pieces over time to draw a complete picture. This doxx was incredibly painful as we obtained a more full picture of this particular target by listening to endless hours of audio spewing bigotry (and so nobody else would have to). On top of the usual draining work of reading the sloppy rantings of a white nationalist on his high horse, listening to his “Bill Clinton sounding ass” for hours on end only verified that this CHUD needed to be exposed.
“Women shouldn’t even be allowed to vote, and my wife would agree with that.”
From this point on the racist personality “John Wesley”, and “John Wesley-SC” on discord, will be referred to by his everyday name, Josh Williams. Josh Williams popped up on most radars a few years ago as a online persona and host of an IE podcast. The recently released Discord leaks provided by Unicorn Riot show Josh Williams using that same moniker in his chats as an active member of IE. Williams posted regularly in the white supremacist group chat, clearly taking on a role of vetting, intake coordination, and as a gatekeeper to certain servers for other members.
Searching beyond the leaked server chats that were intended for their eyes only, it was revealed that Josh had been active in politics longer than his involvement in IE. Before he considered the alt-right he went with what he knew, basic Neoconservatism. Josh worked briefly with the local GOP party until finding himself cozying up to a Libertarian ideology. People on the extreme right like to say when they got this or that colored pill, referring to rejecting certain ideas and becoming dogmatic about others. The reality is that it’s not a single pill but a series of small doses of poison. That’s true for Josh, who eventually needed to don a pen name to remain comfortable and anonymous while spewing fascist ideology. Thus we have the creation of “John Wesley”. Josh Williams describes how when he attended Richard Spencer’s National Policy Institute (NPI) speech in Washington D.C. on November 19th, 2016, it was the first time he felt someone was speaking to him in the way that he wanted. This is the same speech that garnered national attention when Spencer finished his talk by shouting “Hail victory, hail Trump!”, which was greeted by white men extending their arms into nazi salutes.
Josh later tries his hand as a further right Alex Jones personality, under the podcast name “The Middle South”. This is mostly the same as any other DIY alt-right podcast that doesn’t gain a lot of traction. It involves “dog whistle” language about “traditional values” and “globalism” ; white supremacy/patriarchy and antisemitic conspiracy theories. After a time of being largely ignored he is able to break ground with the help of other alt-right podcasters and using twitter amassed a rather large following under the handle @realjohn_wesley. It was this springboard he used to try his hand at podcasts again. Undecided on a name for a good while, Josh eventually landed on “Identity Rising”- his most successful media attempt at this time. This weekly live stream had 26 episodes that ranged from 50 minutes to 2 plus hours, talking about current events and tying them into his white nationalist narrative. They had several white supremacist leaders/think tanks on the show interviewed, and him and his co-hosts liked to bring up the “JQ” or “Jewish question”. The “JQ” is a way to see if people are really ready to go full nazi or not. Some of these interviewees include white identitarians such as Stephen McNallen and Kevin MacDonald.
About less than halfway through the episodes of Identity Rising, Joshua’s co-host “Chillbro Swaggins” AKA Joe Arrigo of Sacramento, CA got doxxed and lost his job. After that point he was running his podcast solo, again. This is the period where Joshua begins to talk about leaving Christianity for paganism. Specifically the white’s only membership church formed by racist Stephen McNallen, Asatru Folk Assembly (AFA).
He describes attending events and meetings where he gets to know other white Identitarians that believe Norse gods and religion are exclusive to one race instead of being the forces of nature that surround everybody equally. In episode 15 of Josh’s podcast he asks AFA Founder Stephen about the churches view on Jews, where he responds that there is no official stance on antisemitism but members are allowed to come to their own decisions, thus giving the green light to be antisemitic within the church. Josh’s unquenchable thirst to ask every person on his show how they felt about Jewish people is very telling of how exactly he feels about them. He also mentions his local “kindred” or group, Sand Hills Kindred, is headed by Paul Hester who only lives a 40 minute drive away.
We’ve previously written on the Asatru Folk Assembly, and will remind our readers of the racist history and reality of the group again here- as we did when publishing on Christopher and Karissa Pack and their AFA ties. The recurrence of AFA and various flavors of the white supremacist milieu in our region (from violent neo-nazi to self-described fascist) is a note we are not taking lightly, and neither should you.
Asatru Folk Assembly (AFA) is one of many churches that celebrate and worship the pagan gods of northern Europe such as Odin and Thor. While practicing pagan religions is in it self non-problematic, AFA sets itself aside from non-racist pagan churches by claiming these gods belong solely to white European descendants. Many Asatru churches have denied the validity of AFA and other racially charged groups by banning together under the name “Heathens United Against Racism” (HUAR) and The Asatru Community (TAC). Together over 100 groups have signed “Declaration 127” denouncing any heathen churches that promote hatred and bigotry. AFA is not one of these groups. The “Folk” in AFA is a dog whistle meaning “whites only”. To cloak a racist agenda in a religion is not just disgusting and insincere, it is all too common. From the KKK claiming to be a Christian organization to “The World Church of the Creator” screaming for a racial holy war (RAHOWA) these groups have something in common; their use of faith to normalize racism and recruit new members into white supremacy. With that in mind, the members of local AFA in the region must be very cozy with having a violent neo-nazi in their group, as they seem to communicate quite frequently on both Pack’s social media- the same platform he (and the AFA) uses to spread antisemitic and fascist dribble. There are many pagan churches to join, so it raises some red flags when the one you choose to associate with is one of the few who admit open nazis as members.
His podcast and twitter account only get more extreme as time goes on. Going through all this information is like watching a once healthy dog slowly turn rabid and very dangerous.
So between going through Discord leaks, hints dropped about his past and current life on Josh’s podcast, along with his tweets – we know just enough to start putting the puzzle together. From Discord chats we know that he posted white supremacist flyers on graves at Old St. David’s Episcopal Church in Cheraw, South Carolina.
This is the same church that he married his wife Terry, who also participated in IE Discord chats under the alias “Mary June Voss”. More on her coming soon.
He has also participated in banner drops in the Carolinas. Joshua also goes beyond flash “actions” in his IE activities, such as being the regional person for members to interview with in order to gain access to private servers within IE’s chat. We also know he is in the mechanical field.
From his guest appearance on another podcast we find out he was 28 years old at time of recording and was a high school senior around 2010. We further confirm Josh is married with a child that would be a little over two years old at the time of this writing. He talks about growing up in a strict Christian household in the south. He mentions his parents were in their teens when he was born. They are now separated and his mother is currently married to a minister and his father is an athletic director. He describes the town he lives in having an approximate population of 10,000 people and 45 miles away from the Hester residence in Aberdeen, North Carolina. His wife in the IE chats mentions they are located 2 hours away from a beach she found “disappointing” because of “those people”. This is a reference to Myrtle Beach and the falsely ascribed reputation born in a deeply racist past along the Grand Strand, that looks at the black population in fear. This all matches up with the size and location of Cheraw, SC, the same town the Williams’ were married in. His house is on a large parcel of land that is partially farmland and located about a mile away from a small river that was at one time owned by his in-laws, Terry’s father is now deceased according to Josh.
Josh has two different profiles on GAB, the uncensored social media platform dominated by neo-nazis and other white supremacists. Both profiles go under his moniker @realJohn_Wesley, but one features a profile picture Nathan Bedford Forrest (the founder of the KKK) while the other profile simply has a picture of Josh himself.
On twitter Josh more recent years has used the handle Johnny Fash (@realjohn_Wesley) to spew hate and conspiracy theories. An older twitter account that has zero posts also has his picture with his wife, Terry, as well as his location and birthday and real name.
With Josh’s fascist troll account, “Johnny Fash”, he posts two pictures of his daughter playing with her new Christmas gifts. While he is making a sick joke at his own child’s expense about how he is “training her to be a trad wife”, she is oblivious to being politicized by her parents and celebrated by fascists around the internet. We do our very best and put a lot of thought in protecting the innocent, however we did not politicize this child, that was her very own father. Josh’s joke is about his daughter being a piece of property that’s only worth how well she can serve a man in the future.
The only reason we bring this to light is to help complete the picture that “John Wesley” of Identity Evropa is in fact Joshua Williams. Below you will see screenshots taken after visiting family for X-mas posted by Josh’s neo-nazi troll account with the same toys and same pajamas. In fact, somebody was thoughtful enough to customize their daughters play kitchenette with her name painted on the front.
Pulled from family members’ social media, who no doubt have no clue what Josh is up to, are photos of the same child in the same PJs, with her father. Furthermore, what should have been a normal family photo becomes evidence to clarify we have found the real person behind “John Wesley”. The monogram on the child’s dress has the same initials confirming it’s the same child from the previous kitchenette photo, and we in fact have undoubtedly discovered the identity of the “realjohn_wesley”. We are diligent to confirm identities. Seriously though, Josh… real talk, HOW DRUNK WERE YOU WHEN YOU POSTED YOUR CHILD’S PHOTO ON A FASCIST TROLL ACCOUNT?! Unforgivable.
