A little over two years prior to this exposé, fascist recruitment flyers and stickers were anonymously posted here in western North Carolina. In October of 2017, less than two months after the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, neo-nazi propaganda was posted on UNCA campus. Just two months after that incident, a Christmas parade route in Canton, NC was littered with the same posters and stickers in mid-December. Both times the local news reported on the incidents and both times materials were found promoting the hate group Identity Evropa (IE), currently rebranded as American Identity Movement (AmIM). It is worth noting that for at least the UNCA incident, the white nationalist propaganda was quickly taken down and disposed of.
In both cases local citizens, journalists, and anti-racists were curious about who had posted these flyers. With few leads to go on, researchers couldn’t be sure if the two events were even done by the same person. While digging through discord chat logs from the Identity Evropa server released by Unicorn Riot in March 2018, we came across the handle “NCSC“. In these leaked discord chats, NCSC takes credit for putting up the flyers and stickers in both incidents, gloating especially hard when the local news quoted a statement from Identity Evropa’s website (way to give the fascist a platform guys).
“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.”
User NCSC gives us a number of clues that lead us to a clear identification of them as Somerled Macdougall. First are the posts made regarding his then soon-to-be born daughter and the plan to name her Sigrun. Then, NCSC goes on to tell us about their personal history growing up in the DC area, living in Raleigh, NC, living in Poland, and finally settling in the Asheville area.
While this was enough to point us to Somerled Macdougall all on its own, we were reminded of a previous user in Unicorn Riot discord leaks that also claimed to be a husband from Asheville, with kids, and a wife from Poland. This discord username was “deactivated“, and was a participant in the Anticom and Southern Front servers, for the groups Anticommunist Action and Vanguard America, respectively.
Vanguard America (VA) is now most notably known for it’s member James Alex Fields‘ vehicular attack on anti-racist counter protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017, murdering Heather Heyer. In the wake of the deadly Charlottesville rally, VA went through it’s own internal power struggle ending with a change in it’s authoritarian leadership from former Marine Corps recruiter Dillon Ulysses Hopper to then 18-year-old Texan Thomas Rousseau aka ‘Thomas Ryan’. Rousseau went on to change the name of the organization to Patriot Front, though the organization’s ideology never changed from its explicitly “American Fascist” ideology. For a more in-depth look at the interconnection, rebranding, and common memberships throughout the stages of the group’s current name – from Atomwaffen Division to American Reaction to American Vanguard to Vanguard America to National Bloc to Patriot Front – click here
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.)
Now, ‘deactivated’ also gives us a number of clues that lead us to the clear identification of them as Somerled Macdougall. Such clues include living in Asheville, the nickname “Mac”, his age, his wife being from Poland, and most notably the fact he and his wife have a professional business filming events. Not only does he mention the business but Somerled offers to film the events of the Charlottesville rally for Vanguard America. The event-based cinematography business Somerled and Aleksandra Macdougall own and operate is Nine Worlds Films. Nine worlds refers to Norse mythology. As we have mentioned before, practicing Pagan religions is not inherently nefarious though many white nationalists mar the religion by incorporating white supremacy into their beliefs. Their website and contact information can be found below.
Utilizing clues from both discord usernames’ posts Asheville Anti-Racism can unequivocally say that “NCSC” and “deactivated” are one in the same – Somerled Macdougall. When the account “deactivated” goes silent around the Charlottesville rally, shortly after “NCSC” appears.
In addition to other clues honing into ID’ing this fascist, there were several pictures he posted on Discord of his new property on August 18th 2017. Not only do online records confirm that his house at 118 Wisteria Way was bought on the same date, pictures of the garage on Zillow’s website match up with the garage “NCSC” posted on the nazi forum. In the post he writes about how the garage had housed the previous owners RV camper which is seen in photo’s on Zillow.
You can clearly see that the garage is the same from photos from two different sources. With the lighter/newer rafters at the top, the pulled back tarp on the backside, the single light bulb hanging on the fourth rafter in on the right of the peak, the sides matching, wooden beams having the same knots, and the broken black asphalt on the right side of the entrance lined by a wooden fence. The hillside on the left, trees behind, and dimensions also add up nicely. 118 Wisteria Way is the address associated with both Somerled and Aleksandra MacDougall.
Somerled spends ample time bragging to his Nazi buddies online about how racist his wife is. At this time we have no proof that Aleksandra shares her husband’s beliefs or even knows about his fascist organizing. It would be a far stretch that she wouldn’t have any idea what her husband is doing. What we do know is that when offering to film the bloodbath that was Charlottesville, Somerled insinuates that he and his wife would be happy to use their professional equipment to capture the event.
At the very best she has no clue what is going on when her husband is online instead of editing video from wedding ceremonies. At the worst she is fully aware and hides her and her husband’s bigoted beliefs from clients while lining her pockets. Paying thousands of dollars for someone to capture ‘the moment’ shouldn’t come with the risk of your friends’ and family’s exposure to an avowed white supremacist organizer. Maybe even more worrisome than funding hate groups with your wedding is the fact that a fascist has copies of videos of your entire wedding party. It’s dangerous enough to have a white supremacist, antisemitic fascist attending an event that may have people of color, queer, or Jewish identities present, including the fact that he is filming you the entire time and backing it up on a hard drive.
Within the leaked discord chats connected to the user “deactivated”, Macdougall mentions that he runs a twitter called @DailyRAC. ‘RAC’ stands for “rock against communism” and is a historically reactionary Nazi-skinhead/white power punk rock “movement”. RAC was a direct fascist response to “Rock Against Racism” concerts that were popular in the UK in the 80’s. In the profile bio he writes ,”#blacklivesmatter is an opinion“, followed by “#altRight“. Just in case sneaky Somerled tries to deactivate his twitter in the wake of this exposé, we archived it here.
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.

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; or
3. Knowingly or willfully abuses a child and in so doing causes great bodily harm, permanent disability, or permanent disfigurement to the child.
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.

Identity Evropa (IE) is a racist “Identitarian” organization that attempts to promote a clean-cut, respectable face, while their members are time and time again exposed promoting a vast swathe of bigoted views wrapped in white supremacy. The chat logs leaked by Unicorn Riot back in March, just days before IE’s national conference in Kentucky, shed light on their membership’s racist, antisemitic, trans-phobic, misogynist, homophobic, and xenophobic views. Identity Evropa is most well known for their role in facilitating 2017’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, VA. On the Friday of IE’s 2019 conference, the organization’s third leader, Patrick Casey, announced that the group was now named the “American Identity Movement” (AmIM), rebranding in an attempt to lose some of the organization’s stigma.
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.
Nathan Barker isn’t the most prolific member of American Identity Movement, but he makes up for his lack of original content by donating to the organization regularly, and hitting the re-tweet button anytime Patrick Casey or any other nationalist CHUD on Twitter decides to spew hate-speech. Nathan Charles Barker loves LARPing as his dead confederate ancestors whenever he can (or whenever his racist dad isn’t forcing him to LARP on the Union side), and enjoys dressing up in a sports jacket and stone washed jeans in a failed attempt to improve the public view of his bigoted organization.
Meet Nathan Charles Barker, Identity Evropa/American Identity Movement’s weekend activist and incessant re-tweeter.
Birth Name: Nathan Charles Barker
Phone Number: (910) 887-5986
Home Address: 257 J bird Lane, Saint Pauls, NC 28384
Physical Description: 6’3”, Dumpy build, clean shaven, dark brown hair, and brown eyes.
Since the recent aforementioned rebranding of Identity Evropa (IE) to American Identity Movement (AmIM), the group has been struggling with a steady decline in membership and issues securing the identities of it’s remaining participants. Nathan Charles Barker hasn’t made this any easier for them. By using his legal name on IE/AmIM’s leaked discord chats, Facebook profile and Instagram, Nathan has left an electronic paper trail easily connecting all of his identifying user accounts. Moreover, Nathan Barker uses his first name, favorite confederate meme imagery, and written confirmations of specific AmIM events on his twitter account, then goes on to confirm the same “activism” with AmIM in the discord chat logs as well. He even uses the same descriptive wording on both accounts to describe how “brilliant” the so-called AmIM activism is.
Nathan comes from a long line of confederate family history which has laid the groundwork for his most recent foray into racist organizing. Make no mistake, American Identity Movement seeks to influence a generation of disenfranchised poor southerners who have been left behind by a rapidly changing world- just as other fascist and neo-nazi organizations like the League of the South, Identity Dixie, and the KKK do, while more directly targeting younger white men. Nathan’s father, Eric Barker, has been integral in grooming his son and advancing the current, twisted world-view Nathan holds. This racist priming has precipitated a group like AmIM’s ease in exploiting Nathan in furtherance of their own goals of a divided and segregated nation upholding white supremacy. But alas, Nathan is an adult and willing participant in this ideology and its furtherance through action. Through years of confederate battle re-enactment and military worship, an heirloom has been passed down from father to son. That heirloom is bigotry and racism.
Nathan graduated from Grays Creek High School in 2017. During his high school years he spent lots of time at the rifle range owning the libs, working the front lines as a fry commando at the Hope Mills Zaxbys, and keeping his eyes closed during photos.
Since the inception of Nathan’s membership in Identity Evropa beginning in late summer of 2017, Nathan has furthered the cause of the organization by re-tweeting literally everything Patrick Casey and AmIM can muster. Apart from his obsessive and bot-like re-tweeting, Barker has sparingly summoned a few words of his own, mostly in leaked discord chats. Here, Nathan praises the works of racist eugenicist Madison Grant. Nathan also has his very own original views on immigration. And just when you thought nationalist Nate bootlicking Barker couldn’t get any worse, he goes ahead and spills the beans on how he views Appalachia.
Nathan makes up for his lack of ability to create original content for his alt-right bigot club by sucking up to it’s leader Patrick Casey. But don’t be fooled, Barker has a few original thoughts from other people he feels compelled to share. Here he re-tweets infamous former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke. Nathan Barker has no problem sharing theories on perceived racial differences, ideas on gender roles, and antisemitism to boot. Looks like Nate is shaping up to be one colossal NAZI!
On Nathan’s Facebook page ,which will likely be shutdown soon, he “likes” many different military simulation pages. Along with civil war re creationist pages he also “likes” several alt-right pages. One of these include “Murdoch Murdoch”, a poorly put together antisemitic and racist cartoon using internet memes popular with fascist keyboard warriors. This content is regularly de-platformed on YouTube for breaking the terms of service agreement, but quickly reposted by other neo-nazis. This internet cartoon celebrates and encourages lone wolf style shootings against minorities like the church attack by Dylan Roof in Charleston, the deadly shooting at the Pittsburgh synagogue, and the infamous mosque massacres in Christ Church, New Zealand.
In addition to his social media presence, Barker has also been identified at Identity Evropa and American Identity Movement activism events. Along with attending fireside chats, private sessions for members of IE/AmIM to listen to Patrick Casey talk mostly about himself and a little about the direction the organization is headed, Nathan has been spotted at IE/AmIM’s 2018 “Leading Our People Forward” conference in Kentucky. Nathan Also attended and participated in American Identity Movement’s “Down With Globalism” event in Nashville TN March 2019. He can be seen below holding one of the banners.
As proven above, Nathan Barker has shown his willingness to actively participate in and further the goals of a racist, white supremacist organization. In addition to his organizing, he espouses vile beliefs or parrots those of others to spread a message of hate. Although it seems quite plain to assume, we will say it anyhow: any individual who threatens the safety and integrity of our global community is a problem. They are our problem, they are your problem and the disease they spread must be stopped immediately. Our passion for antifascism naturally leads us to our continued stance of militant no-platforming for individuals like Nathan Barker and the ideological organizations they claim.

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
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.
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 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.
If you have any tips/information you’d like to share with us, reach out via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. And remember, don’t give them an inch.
“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.
Joshua Keith Willams
Address: 6070 Highway 52 North, Cheraw, South Carolina 29520
Profession: Industrial Maintenance and Machine Tooling
Occupation: Industrial Mechanic at Ina Bearing, of the Schaeffler Group USA
Usernames: Discord: John Wesley-SC, Twitter: @JoshKWill27, Twitter and Gab: @realJohn_Wesley, Gab: @realJohnWesley, Facebook: joshwilliams.terryritz
Physical Description: About 6’0″, dumpy, fashy haircut with longer brown hair on top, and short/buzzed brown hair on the sides, blue eyes. Distinctive tattoo on his right arm just below the elbow – two black rings around the arm. He has a big head with rounded chubby cheeks. Switches between bushy brown beard and shaved face, favoring the beard.
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.
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.
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.

Identity Evropa is at the forefront of the racist “alt-right’s” effort to recruit white, college-aged men and transform them into the fashionable new face of white nationalism. Rather than denigrating people of color, the campus-based organization focuses on raising white racial consciousness, building community based on shared racial identity and intellectualizing white supremacist ideology.
Daniel Wallace Rasch
DOB: 7/11/87 – 31 years old
Address: 2212 Oak Springs Drive Greenville, South Carolina
Occupation: Global Leadership Development Program- Michelin Tires, Greenville, SC
From: Washington & St. Louis Missouri
Previously Lived In: Bryan & Houston, Texas, and Lexington, South Carolina
School: Attended Texas A&M – Mays Business School 2016-2018
We are pleased to introduce Daniel Wallace Rasch, also known as “Tanner – SC” on the newly leaked Discord chat logs of the white supremacist group formerly known as Identity Evropa (IE), currently rebranded as American Identity Movement (AIM)
“Tanner-SC” spent a considerable amount of time on a server called #whitepills before his entire organization was deplatformed. “White pilling” is a play off the alt-right idea that once you take the “red pill” you can see the truth. Their “truth” is filled with antisemitic and Islamophobic conspiracies ranging from Jewish control of all governments to the very extinction of white people as a whole. To “white pill” somebody is to sneak white nationalist ideology into everyday conversations under the guise of being inquisitive and questioning. There are a few far right mouth pieces that have tried to master this ruse with some success, notably Richard Spencer of the National Policy Institute, Jared Taylor of American Renaissance, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Andrew MacDonald. All have paved the way for suit-and-tie nazis to debate for a far darker future, opening up the conversation of mass relocations, genocide of people of color, and ethnostates ran by a fascist white aristocracy. Sometimes these arena-traveling street preachers wear a clownish smile, brow-beating their audience into a frenzy–either way their message and tactics are basically the same. The reality of their views are sugarcoated in the message they broadcast, which is that white people are getting the short end of the stick and it’s because of diversity. Their tactic is to introduce these ideas into normal culture via a Trojan horse using language, unchecked statistics, and non-peer reviewed “science” that would never be published in any credible science journal. This is the particular camp that Daniel Rasch was groomed for.
So now we have a face and voice for “Tanner.” Thank you Daniel for “fanning your own balls,” a disgusting thought yet useful to expose your real name and intentions. It is worth mentioning that the beginning of the video is cropped as to hide the title slide which would most likely include the name of the speaker. This is consistent when the video is shared on other websites popular among white supremacists such as Stormfront and voat.
Tanner SC also boasts of being a state coordinator for new members of IE and references bottom lining fascist propaganda distribution (see below)
Daniel Rasch is obsessed with the conspiracy of the “Zionist occupational government” (ZOG), the unfounded idea that Jews secretly run the world. He is so convinced Jews control all the money globally he invests in bitcoins or cryptocurrency and he acts as Identity Evropa’s online financial adviser, coaching fascists through investments.
Alongside the grossly antisemitic conspiracy of secret Jewish overlords covertly breeding white people out of existence, Daniel has become very interested in providing tips about how white men can find suitable white women to date and thus breed with. This dating advice includes going ice skating as it is “very white” and going to revival festivals, which we imagine look white enough for Daniel’s taste or lack thereof. He goes on to advise fellow white nationalists to join Church youth groups in order to find a white wife. Daniel himself recently joined a local catholic “youth” group. When we read why, his choice sounds as in-sincere as it does inappropriate. This is an idea originally presented to him by another IE member in the area to find a “traditional” wife to have as many children as possible.
We won’t be including any of Daniel’s past or present partners in this expose at this time, as he likes to keep his involvement with Identity Evropa and the white nationalist movement a close secret. Therefore, we have no reason at the moment to believe he is being honest/forward about his beliefs, organizing, and financial support of IE with his loved ones and peers. There will be an edit if we find out otherwise. Anybody that is willing to lie to their family and lover would definitely have no problem putting on a mask for their employers and co-workers/clients. Nonetheless, we believe everyone around him, along with the greater public, ought to be fully aware of his active membership in a white supremacist organization and a designated hate group. This includes informing not only his family and employers at Michelin, but also the cycling community that he is embedded in.
And there’s maps!
An additional clue solidifying the conclusion that “Tanner-SC” is in fact Daniel Wallace Rasch is his enthusiasm for long distance cycling. While bike frames change as you upgrade and get new gear, things that don’t change very often are actual frame size and positioning of the saddle which correlate with body size. So while this might seem to be a small detail to work off of, it was a clue we couldn’t ignore. We were looking for a racist racer in South Carolina.
The rides that “Tanner” would map out and share close the area to the general foothills area of northern South Carolina. One link he shares is of a replication of a ride he went on. The beginning of the screen includes text giving us a first name as it spells out “Dan’s ride”. He later mentions he is in Greenville area. The two bikes that he posts pictures as his are a 2016 Giant TCR Advanced Pro 2 and a 2017 Cannondale CAADX 105 clyclocross bike. The Cannondale is on an indoor trainer resting on a gray moving blanket in one pic. Various pictures confirm he is in fact in the Greenville / Upstate SC area. Seems Dan prefers biking to other sports because it is “very white” in his mind.
Before moving to Greenville, South Carolina “Tanner-SC” mentions being about a 3 hours drive to Dallas, Texas in 2017. He then later mentions having contacts in Houston. In a different server when once again discussing white birthrates he talks about being from St. Louis, MO originally.
Although Daniel believed his neo-nazi and white nationalist politics made him a suitable candidate for campus internships, decision makers thought otherwise. Someone should have told him sooner that advocating for genocide as a means of racial cleansing is not considered an “extracurricular” form of “leadership skills”. Apparently his mistake cost him “some good internship possibilities”.
Tanner-SC posts a lot on the mechanical server about tending to and buying cars. Other posts reveal his age at the time he was posting, his sector and title in the workforce and his family’s financial stability. Even his diet will no longer be a secret!
Now we have a better picture of who “Tanner” is. We are looking at a 31 year old white male with a brown fashy haircut with a distinct voice. We are looking for somebody that is originally from St. Louis area and moved to Texas presumably for school and now lives and works in Greenville, South Carolina. This same person also has a high paying job in tire manufacturing and years if manufacturing experience. This person’s posts on discord suggests they are highly familiar with the inner workings of business models and finances. He is mechanically inclined and has plenty of advice to offer on automobiles and bicycles. He recommends Trek bikes on discord as they are the most American/nationalist company. The personality behind the handle leans strongly towards privilege, higher education and a know-it-all. He also appears to attend a catholic church in the Greenville area.
For somebody who thinks they are so smart they sure made a stupid mistake thinking they could share so much personal information on an infiltrated chat server. With this context to guide us we began digging through known Identity Evropa member’s social media (that we will be exposing shortly after this release, muwaha). Whatta ya know we stumbled upon Daniel Rasch’s facebook profile.
Not only does Daniel’s profile picture look familiar to the “white extinction” youtube video that Tanner SC posted on discord, this Daniel also attended high school at private catholic prep school, De Semet Jesuit High School located in Creve Coeur, a city located in west St. Louis County, Missouri. He later studied at Missouri S&T and Texas A&M University Mays Business School in Houston. Since 2018 Daniel has positioned himself in the Global Leadership Development Program at Michelin located in Greenville, SC. It would appear that Daniel upgraded to that All-American Trek bike he wanted with his new job, as seen in the cover photo, leaning in that familiar way “Tanner” shot his bikes various times throughout the server. Daniel also has a LinkedIn account that verifies this information.
Furthermore we found a YouTube account under the name Daniel Rasch <link to channel> which features a few videos of modified handgun clips malfunctioning, several bicycle modification videos, video game race car footage and some videos of joy riding in a black corvette with Missouri plates. Not only is the voice in the videos matching up with the speaker of the “suit and tie work” Tanner took credit for in IE servers linked above, but the content and tone is parallel. In one video he names off the exact make and model of the Cannondale bicycle featured in discord leaks, the same bike that was parked on top of a gray moving blanket which is also the same blanket used indoors in videos on Rasch’s channel. The exact same Giant bike mentioned above is featured in several videos.
All of these clues match up quite nicely with Daniel’s timeline, locations, interests as well as voice and face. To double check on that speech on YouTube we looked into the actual classrooms in Houston’s Texas A&M business school. We were able to match another video of somebody talking to a group of young entrepreneurs in the exact same room the “White People: Trending Towards extinction” speech was delivered.
This confirmed the speech was presented at the very same school that Daniel Rasch was attending at the same time. Daniel’s presentation mentions several professors, one of which is Michael Wesson. Wesson happens to teach at the Texas A&M – Mays Business School. With this knowledge it would be exhausting and redundant to further prove without a doubt that “Tanner-SC” of Identity Evropa is in fact Daniel Rasch; but we will.
On Daniel’s Facebook profile it appears they attend meet-ups with Lucis Via : Catholic Young Adults of Greenville, which is consistent with “Tanner” announcing they had joined a Catholic youth group to pick up ladies. We wonder what the church would think of Rasch’s role as state coordinator of a hate group coupled with his perverted and hyper sexual agenda…
Without much more to say about Daniel Wallace Rasch’s once secret affiliation with Identity Evropa, we will let Danny tell you how he feels himself.

For the past few years when people imagined white nationalist trolls online, the image of pasty virgins chuckling at their own racist jokes in their parents basement is conjured. While these hoards of keyboard warriors sharing memes for “the lolz” are easy to dismiss as pathetic, these are the very foot soldiers of the white nationalist’s most prominent platform, the internet. To normalize xenophobic speech and ideas on the web is their mission, making it that much easier to recruit impressionable youth and eventually hit the streets as a fascist fighting force or encourage others to go on shooting sprees. These fascist trolls use “humor” and edgy language that is often unknown to most people with actual social skills. They often claim to be unapologetic for their disgusting beliefs but their anonymity tells a different story.
Meet one of the newest members of North Carolina Identity Evropa, Jonathan Yodice. Jon sees himself as a quirky comedian of sorts, embracing his self proclaimed nerdiness. Taking point from Adult Swim shows and song writers, the weirder the better. It seems Yodice was not satisfied with oddball humor and nonsensical inside jokes and so his views slowly have turned to the white supremacist and Men’s Rights Activist (MRA) fringe online. It’s almost easy to dismiss these online antics as just having a laugh at politically correct culture if it were not for his steadily increased involvement with white nationalist groups and ideology.
While Jonathan maintains many of his old friends online, it’s unclear where they stand with his new views. The past six months he has cranked up sharing podcasts and nationalist rhetoric, though people who used to interact with his light-hearted humor seem to be largely ignoring or monitoring these new posts.
As Jonathan loses support from older circles he will move forward with his new nazi buddies furthering his indoctrination. This has become clear when watching his participation on white nationalist forums online and his interest in attending the 2nd national Identity Evropa conference in KY. Don’t give this bigoted schmuck an inch.
Phillip James Wiglesworth of Tallahassee, FL is no stranger to soaking up every little bit of attention he can possibly get. As Trump ascended to the Presidency back in 2016, Phillip was one who took on the Deplorable label and rode it as far as it would take him. He changed his Twitter account username to #MAGA Wiggleman and took every little interview he could get, from local news coverage of Trump rallies to This American Life on NPR. But while he touted himself as simply an unapologetic, veteran Trump-supporter, in actuality he was quickly latching onto the growing Alt-Right movement.
During the 2016 presidential inauguration in DC, Wiglesworth was an attendee at the Deploraball and felt especially proud of a picture he took with the disgraced-dumpster-fire-“journalist” Jack Posobiec. From there, he went on to attend the Richard Spencer’s speaking event at Auburn University in April of 2017.
-Picture from audience at Richard Spencer talk at Auburn University –
What we know for sure is that by July of 2017 Phillip Wiglesworth was already a member of Identity Evropa. He actively participated in the planning of Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, VA that August and also attended.
Phillip likes to participate in various actions and ‘activism’ events, which simply means stickering and flyers college campuses with Nazi propaganda. This includes Wiggleshits flyering and stickering Florida State University campus on 3/17/2018.
Wiglesworth brags that his boss is okay with him being a member of a neo-nazi organization, going to Charlottesville to attend the violent torch march on August 11th and the deadly Unite the Right rally on August 12th. He states he showed her a video of a Patrick Casey interview and that “SHE enjoyed it…” He aslo says, “My boss has know I’ve been a member ever since cville.. considering i had to take time off for it. She gets it”.
Wiglesworth mentions doing emergency glass repair in the wake of Hurricane Michael hitting Tallahassee. He divulges that the company does shower door installation as well. He gives some major clues as to where he works in the discord server, especially when he takes a picture form inside his work van. Whats that writing say? ALUMAX. Well, there are only 3 providers of ALUMAX shower doors in the Tallahassee area, and only one of those is owned by a woman. While Lestie Webb of Capital City Glass and Screen may be okay with a nazi employee, maybe the local community won’t “get it” quite the same way and have a problem with a nazi coming into their homes on the job.
Unsuprisingly, Wiglesworth isn’t simply the “MAGA chud he claims to be on social media and in the brief media spotlights he’s taken. He spews anti-semetic, white nationalist BS often, as evidenced in his prior discord leaks.
He also gives us confirmation of his address via his comfortable blabbing in the hipster nazi discord chat recently leaked by Unicorn Riot. Wiglesworth cites this Tallahassee newspaper story as the street that feeds into his neighborhood. When cross-referencing the easily visible intersection with the most recent listed current address, it is clear Wiglesworth still lives at 3265 Sawtooth Drive, Tallahassee, FL.
All in all, Phillip James Wiglesworth is a racist, anti-semetic, POS Neo-Nazi who doesn’t deserve the soft pass he’s been given so far. When we find out about fascist and nazi organizers and participants in our communities and beyond, it is imperative we take a stand and cede no space for that gross violation of safety to the most vulnerable among us. Wiglesworth has shown his true colors, and we see him for what he is. If you see him or have any further information to share, reach out! In the meantime, keep up the good fight against racist scum like this, and don’t give him an inch.
We know that Erica has been a member of the Florida Identity Evropa chapter since at least April 2017, and over the following months organized and participated in various Nazi rallies across the state and beyond. From banner rallies crashing University events, to meet-ups between other self-identifying white nationalists, fascists, and “identetarians”, to coordinated flyering and stickering of their fascist propaganda. Here is Erica is self-identifying as the woman holding the banner in this photo:
It turns out that Erica Joy Alduino moved out of Florida shortly after the Unite The Right rally of August 2017, and by September of that year was much closer to the Kentucky and Ohio chapters of IE- as evidenced in these posts:
Something to note about Alduino is that she clearly likes to change/mask her outward appearance both for her public Nazi activities and in her free time. Erica has been seen donning wigs and changing both her hair color and style, though naturally she has dark brown hair. If you take looks at the many photographs above she is in, you’ll notice the trend. that why we note the clear tattoos across her chest and right shoulder as being the most clear identifiers if you happen across Alduino.
In the Charlottesville server, Erica Joy Alduino speaks openly about their deep involvement in the operation of the server- which acted as a significant organizing platform for hundreds of Nazis and violent white supremacists to attend the deadly Unite The Right rally. Alduino posts hundreds of messages in the server, helping coordinate lodging, rides up from Florida for her fellow Florida Identity Evropa members, along with the usual disgusting racist, homophobic, and antisemitic vitriol. It’s no stretch to say that Erica Joy Alduino’s facilitation of organizing, and coordination for, the Charlottesville rally was substantial. And any substantial organizing for nazis, fascists, and white supremacists – let alone for a rally to build a coalition between these disgusting and dangerous radical positions – is an act that won’t go without repercussions.
Alduino has participated in a number of “activism” actions with Identity Evropa over the past three years. One particularly disgusting example is Identity Evropa rallying outside of the Pulse nightclub after the deadly homophobic mass shooting that took place there. What this all culminates to is this: Erica joy Alduino is a key organizer and participant with a neo-nazi organization- don’t given her an inch.
