THREAD: What is The Base?

It's a "balk-right" network of white separatist paramilitaries hoping to balkanize the United States and divide it up into a series of white ethnostates.

Anti-fascists have infiltrated the group and are exposing their members.

2/ Their leader, "Norman Spear," claims to be ex-military, having served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

His immediate goal? Communal training grounds across the world. For this, he has purchased a plot of land in the Pacific Northwest, and plans to start training members in 2019.
3/ The group plans to meet in California on January 11, to train in the paramilitary and survival skills needed to commit acts of mass violence and elude authorities in rural areas, with another training scheduled for the summer of 2019.
4/ As Spear tells his followers in the chats, “For now we need non-attributable actions but that will still send a message and/or add to acceleration as much as possible.”
5/ These tactics have some precedent.

Following the 1996 Centennial Olympic attack, and bombing two abortion clinics and a lesbian nightclub, Christian Identitarian Eric Rudolph spent more than five years as a fugitive living in the Pisgah National Forest.
6/ In fact, The Base member "Doomsayeth," specifically refers to Rudolph in the chats, invoking Tommy Robinson's anti-Muslim conspiracy theories about "grooming gangs" of Muslims preying on white children.
7/ The main goal of the Base is to contribute to and support the acceleration of the destruction of the US government so that its members can create new, governing entities in regional, white-only ethnostates.
8/ But anti-fascists are working to stop that.

@_eugeneantifa released the first dox of a member of The Base yesterday.

Meet "Doomsayeth," aka Jerod Matthew Elder of Murrieta, California.…
9/ Jerod's a member of the National Guard who's been deployed to the border to deal with the migrant caravan.
10/ In The Base chats, he fantasizes about being able to open fire on refugees.
11/ Jerod tells the other members of The Base, "I'm pretty excited about this migrant caravan.... hopefully, ill get to pop some jungle nogs with shotgun bean bags."
12/ Jerod's also an open antisemite who claims that Jews "made a blood pact with the adversary of all men."
13/ This is who the US government is deploying to deal with the migrant caravan.

A white separatist and antisemite who belongs to a paramilitary hate group and fantasizes about shooting refugees.
14/ The state won't protect us here. The police aren't investigating this, and neither is the military.

Jerod Matthew Elder *is* an agent of the state, and thus far, the military has taken no interest in his membership in a hate group.
15/ It a coast-to-coast network of anti-fascists that have infiltrated The Base, and are making their identities known, so that communities can protect themselves from people like Jerod Matthew Elder.
16/ You can follow the #DeBasedDoxx hashtag to keep up with new doxxes.
17/ If you've ever had reservations about anti-fascists-- the secrecy, the masks, the violent defensive tactics-- this is why we're forced to use the tactics we do.

We're dealing with trained killers who often have the full authority of the violence of the state.
18/ These are not our careers-- anti-fascism is a fundamentally localized movement of working-class activists.

We are not paid for our work.

This is not a game, this is not a hobby, and this is not an annual report to our donors.
19/ And over the next month, anti-fascist groups across the country will be exposing members of The Base.

Follow the #DeBasedDoxx hashtag to keep up.
20/ Anti-fascism is community self-defense.

These are our lives at stake, and the lives of the people we love.

And we risk them every day, not for fame or money, but to protect our communities.
21/ Community is an oath to us.

It is the mutual work and risk and sacrifice we undertake daily to protect each other.

But we need your help.
22/ When these people are exposed, we need the people in their communities to hold them accountable for their hatred and violence.

Get them fired, get them de-homed, ostracize them.

Show them that hate has consequences.
23/ If you've ever wondered what you'd be doing during the Nazis' rise to power, this is it.

It's what you're doing right now.
24/ The state won't help. The cops don't care. Our representatives won't save us.

It's on us. It's on all of us.

And that's a big job for any one person.

But all of us together?
