Nate Marshall is Dumb as Hell

Look at this dick!
UPDATE: Oh my god it gets better.
"Embattled Colorado state House candidate Nathaniel Marshall was reportedly recruited to run for office by state Senate candidate Tim Neville, a prominent Colorado Republican politician with close ties to far-right kingmaker Dudley Brown…
…Rick Enstrom, a prominent candy business executive and onetime Republican House candidate, tweeted Wednesday that Marshall told him that he was recruited to run by Neville. Today Enstrom confirmed that assertion in a phone interview.
“I’m not running for anything, and Tim Neville is a friend of mine but, hey, the facts are the facts,” he told the Colorado Independent.

UPDATE: Due to not being "media savvy" Nate has dropped his candidacy for state congress. What a fucking buffoon.

UPDATE: Nate's campaign filing affidavit can be viewed right here in .PDF form. Nate, in his infinite wisdom, put his address and phone number on the form. You can reach Nate, a fucking moron, at 303-500-2863 or send him a package full of gorilla shit at:

10555 W JEWELL AVENUE 5-203
LAKEWOOD CO 80232

or, his business address

1185 S HURON STREET
UNIT E
DENVER CO 80223
-----------------------------------------
Nate Marshall, the noted failed Hitler clone we exposed last summer after organizing a sparsely-attended meeting of white supremacists in the mountains; is now being urged by the Jefferson County Republican Party to drop his candidacy for State Congressman in Lakewood, CO. The Denver Post reports:

Embattled Jeffco Republican House candidate: "I wasn't hating"
A Republican House candidate who has been asked to resign because of ties to white supremacists and his arrest record said sometimes he gets so frustrated he gets carried away. "I wasn't hating on anybody," Nate Marshall of Lakewood said Thursday. The 42-year-old construction manager said he had planned to disclose his arrest record on his campaign website. "I talked to a fundraiser Wednesday who said because I was going to disclose it, it would have been mitigated," Marshall said.

But he said before he could do so The Denver Post on Wednesday reported on his arrest by Steamboat Springs police investigating a Craigslist rental scam, and referred to the white supremacist blog.

He asked if the Post could remove its articles, noting he made restitution in the rental situation and the case was dismissed. Marshall also said he's not a white supremacist, but he is a "big fan" of a Greek group called Golden Dawn that preaches fiscal austerity. Critics have called it a neo-Nazi or fascist group, but Marshall said while it is a "little bit militant" some members have won political races. Since then, Marshall's tweets have also been examined. Some involve derogatory comments toward Muslims and gays, including use of the word "faggots."

White Nationalists Meet in Evergreen, CO on June 15th, Here's What They Chatted About

Read the follow up a year later to see what happens when Nate Marshall attempts to run for local office. Spoiler alert: it goes poorly.

Much detailed in the following writing and file attachments were obtained anonymously and the information and actions taken are those of the anonymous party. The author or any perceived affiliate of Rocky Mountain Antifascists take no responsibility for anything detailed heretofore.

Nate Marshall, fearless leader.



Several months ago, through the vigilance of monitoring the publicly visible forums of Stormfront.org, it began to circulate through antifascist circles that there was a man by the name of Nate Marshall attempting to organize a recruitment and networking event for white nationalists and neo-Nazis in Evergreen, Colorado on June 15th at Dedisse Park. He was operating under the moniker NateTheWatcher on Stormfront, and quickly created a National Socialist news aggregating blog/online recruitment form under the name "The Aryan Storm."


Nate started to amass followers on Twitter, became an obsessive, prolific poster on Stormfront with more than 1,000 posts in the span of three or four months, and post generic Nazi glorifying bullshit on his blog while billing his new "organization" as the American Golden Dawn. He boasted about signing up chapters in Europe and building membership lists in the scope of several hundred people. He began to promote sale weekends for new membership fees.

While several members on Stormfront were initially suspicious, Nate stated he had a permit, was in contact with the local sheriff, and that members of Blood & Honour USA/Combat 18 would be providing security as well as sending representatives to the rally. Despite the security concerns of several prominent local white nationalists as well as a statewide fire ban (no burgers/cross burnings for the Nazis or Klan in attendance), the rally was still set to go despite a sudden scrubbing of details a few weeks before the event.

Butz in Boots
A grand total of eight passionate and fearless members of the local white nationalist scene attended the June 15th get together. Without counting Hitler wannabe Nate, Brett Butz, fuckhead extraordinaire who LOVES to email us with empty shit talking and revisionist local history (it's a little harder to dilute history from three years ago than your run-the-mill holocaust denial, Brett.) attended. Brett, or as he prefers to be called, "Boots" is the chapter head of the local Blood & Honour Colorado/USA whatever they're calling themselves now. Blood & Honour, at least where they're supposed to be a legitimate political threat, is supposed to be an international skinhead street gang bent on racial terrorism.

Along with a couple of Blood & Honour tag along shitlickers, one of the other notable parties was Gregory A.N. Coots. We'll allow the intelligence to speak for itself:


Sir Gregory, awaiting the Vampiric holy war
“Sir” Gregory A.N. Coots is a self described pastor and leader of the Citadel Holy Orders. He also bills himself as a former Special Forces soldier now working as a military Chaplain at Fort Carson, Colorado. He is the owner/operator of Citadel Process, a self described security and surveillance company that provides survival, first aid, security, and tactical military training.

Gregory is also affiliated with Myelin Productions. A small independent film company that focuses on making low budget vampire movies: youtube.com/user/myelinproductions

 For background on the Citadel Holy Order:



Sir David, left, also attended.
Citadel Holy Orders is an organization active in the United States that claims to be able to trace its origins to at least 1099, during the First Crusade. The organization is a highly religious order, mixing traditional Christian and Jewish beliefs. Members may identify as Christian, Jewish, or both. Much of their beliefs and traditions stem from the Knights Templar, an order of Christian Knights active during the crusades. 
CHO sees it's primary mission as one to destroy Islam and wage war on Muslims, in order to protect Christians and Jews. CHO is linked directly to a church in Colorado Springs, CO: Opened Gates Ministries. Their website advertizes survival schools and tactical fighting trainings. They are also linked to Citadel Process, a self proclaimed security company that also offers weapons trainings at various levels.

CHO members find inspiration and affinity with the actions of Andres Behring Breivik, a Norweigan national affiliated with a Knights of Templar styled organization, who was convicted of mass murdering 77 people in Norway in a mass shooting and bombing campaign in July 2011. Breivik considered himself a guardian of Christians and Jews, and committed himself to waging war on Islam and defenders of “multiculturalism”.

Brett's rap sheet
If you'd like to send Sir Greg's church a sternly worded letter or perhaps talk to a supervisor, you can contact them at the following address and phone number:
Address: 609 Bennett Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80909
Phone:(719) 632-7728


So what would a bunch of racist, religiously bigoted sacks of shit all want to have a little summit in the mountains for? What would Brett Butz, noted anti-Semite, parolee and convicted felon and a couple of his meth-toothed lackeys want to chat about with some Knight's Templar, Israel loving, D&D vampire nerd about? What we would do to be flies on the wall at that meshing of the minds!

Luckily, somebody thought just that same thing and made an audio recording of the whole fucking meeting. The answers are startling. Sir Gregory, supposed employee of the United States Military, offers federal funding and paramilitary training in Lake George, Colorado to Brett and his gang of fuck-up miscreants. They bond over a passion for deadly anti-Muslim hate crimes disguised as "crusading" and discuss stockpiling black powder. Unfathomably macho pissing contests about being on the "front line" are had.

They discuss standardizing ammunition amongst the group, as well as disguising the intentions of the training group by barring swastikas. Brett states that these trainings will be mandatory for all Blood & Honour members and that he personally wants to be at the very next one held. He states he will have to make a transition from "street level" leader to "military leader." Agreements are made for further meetings. Towards the end of the recording, likely because of the content of the conversation,  somebody even asks if they were recorded. Sir Gregory states that he believes in "proactive action" and that he would rather "burn somebody's house down before they burn down [his]". Brett even asks him if he has a problem with his group's "racist stance" and he says "no problem, whatsoever" before following up with "We oppose Islam. Period."

The recording is damning as well as alarming. It is edited for a completion's sake as well as for bird enthusiasts.  Multiple groups with sympathies to some of the most murderous, bloodthirsty racist terrorists getting together in hopes to hone their combat skills are some of the most horrifying ideas to emerge from this state since some dolt in Aurora decided he was a Batman villain. The following is a rough transcript of a few notable portions of the audio:

3:06- Brett: “You don't have any issue with you being associated with our racist stance?” Gregory: “No problem whatsoever.”


3:07- Gregory: “Our stance is, we oppose Islam. Period.”

Even though there were up to eight of them, the Nazis loved to talk about the antifa, which they grossly mispronounce according to the recording. Brett states he has a "great banter" with Rocky Mountain Antifascists through email, and most of them express disappointment that there wasn't a mass organized response to eight of them meeting in a park. Many of them thought they would "have their windshields smashed", and rented cars to get to the rally to avoid having their license plates recorded by any antifascists. Some vaguely confirm bringing concealed firearms. One participant, deemed "a little out there" by reported attendants posting on Stormfront, was removed by an Evergreen Sheriff after reporting that his tires had been slashed.

Nate wanted to bring his Aryan Storm to Denver for an anti-immigrant 4th of July demonstration, but alas, after being exposed on Stormfront as a felon con-artist for Craigslist property scams as well as accused of being a police informant, his blogs and Stormfront account was hastily deleted shortly after the demonstration was postponed. So while the Aryan Storm fizzled out rather quickly (as did his follow-up blog, "Exposing Sharia"), we are a lot more concerned with the teaming up of a bunch of armed religious fanatics and mouth-breathing hardcore skinheads.

Stay tuned, Sportsfans!

Alleged Wisconsin Sikh Massacre Perpetrator Had White Supremacist, Colorado Ties

Wade Michael Page
The Denver Post is reporting that 40 year old Wade Michael Page, accused of shooting multiple people at a Sikh temple outside of Milwaukee this weekend, was born in Colorado and lived here for some years. Page played in two racist skinhead bands End Apathy and Definite Hate and was active on Stormfront, a massive web forum for white nationalists.

Page was heavily tattooed in typical Nazi and fascist fashion and appears to have typically shaved his head. He first came onto the radar of the Southern Poverty Law Center when he attempted to buy unknown materials from the National Alliance, a hate group led by William Pierce. Pierce authored "The Turner Diaries", a work of fiction describing how a small number of determined fascists could begin a race war. The book went on to inspire Timothy McVeigh.

The absolutely reprehensible massacre at the Sikh temple comes at a time where that has been a rise in organized racist terrorism. In March 2010, anti-racist activist Luke Querner was ambushed and shot in Portland, OR in what is heavily suspected as an attack by fascists. April 6th of the same year, an ARA and SHARP (Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice) member's house was bombed in what is also suspected as an attack by neo-Nazis. A member of the National Alliance was convicted of attempting to set off a bomb during the MLK Parade in Spokane, WA in 2011. 10 neo-Nazis of the "American Front" training for a "race war" were arrested this year in Florida, not to mention the promises of patrols in Sanford from the National Socialist Movement in response to unrest stemming from the Trayvon Martin murder. It's hard not to forget JT Ready, another prominent figure in the white nationalist movement, who killed several members of his family including small children before killing himself in Arizona just a few months ago. It goes without saying that in several other countries, street-level fascist terrorism and lone wolf attacks are also on the rise.

It's against this backdrop of rising violence, Rocky Mountain Antifascists stands behind people like the Tinley Park 5 (accused of assaulting and trashing a white nationalist gathering outside of Chicago), the antifa in Arizona that made the NSM march a few years back a living hell for both the fascists in the police department and those in the streets. The countless comrades every year that face the danger of bringing the fight against fascism to the jaws and ribcages of those who perpetuate it attack to stop incidents like the Sikh temple massacre at its source: the ideological echo chambers of white nationalist scenes, protest actions and the blinding propaganda factories of their literature and music.

Imperial Grand Wizard of KKK: Membership on Rise in Colorado

From the Denver Post:

DURANGO, Colo.—The Ku Klux Klan says membership is booming in Colorado because of the growth of the radical right. 


Imperial Grand Wizard Cole Thornton says the United Northern and Southern Knights of the KKK is active and successful recruiting in Colorado, but no membership numbers were available.

Southern Poverty Law Center spokesman Mark Potok tells the Durango Herald (http://bit.ly/AneXPp) the radical right in the U.S. has grown enormously in the last 10 years, particularly since President Barack Obama's election in 2008.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit civil rights organization, 12 white supremacist groups are currently active in Colorado.

Neo-Nazi Previously Convicted of Hate Crime Shot Dead By Englewood Police

Fascist on Fascist Crime: "Yesterday, a member of the Englewood Police Department shot and killed a man outside a Walgreens store. And the dead man was notorious long before he breathed his last.

Jeremiah Barnum was at the center of what former Westword writer Jared Jacang Maher once described as "Denver's most famous hate-crime case."

According to the EPD, an officer spotted a stolen car near South Washington Street and East Bates Avenue at about 4:33 p.m. yesterday afternoon. This information was shared with plain-clothes detectives, who put the vehicle under surveillance.

Oumar Dia
The detectives watched as several subjects climbed into the car and drove to a Walgreens at 3080 South Broadway. There, the individuals in question were rounded up by patrol officers and taken to the police station.

Story over? Not quite. A pair of Englewood officers remained on the scene, and as one was finishing up impound-related paperwork, he eyeballed what's described as "a known associate of the earlier arrestees" sitting in a car parked in the Walgreens lot. The cops then approached the vehicle, at which point the driver -- Barnum -- reached for a weapon in his waistband while backing the car out so quickly that he nearly hit one of them.


That officer responded by opening fire, the department reveals -- and Barnum was struck in the process. After his car came to a halt, the cops removed him and rendered first aid, as did members of the Englewood Fire Department who responded shortly thereafter. But Barnum was later pronounced dead at Swedish Medical Center.

What was Barnum's previous claim to infamy? His name came up in our 2009 feature article about the hit-and-run death of Lilian Verdonkschot. Nadine Montoya was accused of having not only caused Verdonkschot's death but also committing a hate crime. That led to the following passage:
Critics say that hate-crime legislation is redundant, since laws already exist to prosecute the actual crime regardless of motive.... In Denver's most famous hate-crime case, the 1997 slaying of African immigrant Oumar Dia at a downtown bus stop, self-proclaimed white supremacist Nathan Thill called Dia a "nigger" and asked if he was ready to die. But even without a hate-crime charge, Thill would have been sentenced to life in prison. The law did effect Thill's buddy, Jeremiah Barnum. Though he didn't pull the trigger, Barnum was convicted of ethnic intimidation and first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison in 1999 before a judge, citing tainted testimony, ordered a new trial. (Denver appealed that decision for several years, but in 2002 agreed to a plea deal that sent Barnum away for twelve years.)
As noted by the Denver Post, we don't yet know how long Barnum has been a free man. But his latest step into the spotlight won't lead to any sequels.

-------------------------
 Barnum was a known associate of local white supremacist gang the 211 Crew. At the Westword, where this story originated, numerous members of that group sprang to his defense using handles including Nazi numerology ("88", "1488") and touting the 211 Crew name.
