An antifa crew out of Colorado obtained information on how things went down at a recent gathering of boneheads near Denver.
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:
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.
Sir David, left, also attended.
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:
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:

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!
