Last week, we exposed @JFRDJAX @jaff122 @CityofJax @lennycurry firefighter Anthony Treadwell. We now have evidence that he was attempting to join the @splcenter
designated hate group the "Proud Boys" with the intent to "curb stomp" people

*Action Items Included
We observed Treadwell posting about going to Portland in the "Proud Boy" Telegram chat. The "cleansing" he is referring to is the upcoming "Proud Boy" led attack on Portland. An event Treadwell reposted on his Parler account.
Treadwell has locked down his social media accounts, but not before we were able to screenshot his posts
His posts speak to the level of his radicalization as well as to his desire to commit acts of violence.
In leaked Dischord chats from June of this year, Treadwell was attempting to join the "Proud Boys"
In the first post he displays his racism, and in the second he expresses his desire to join the "Proud Boys" and how he is ready to "curb stomp" people
Worth noting the handle he is using is an anti-Muslim dogwhistle and he is repping extremists in his profile
Which we know is his because he added a profile pic. The same as his twitter profile picture
Anthony Treadwell did not lock all of his social media profiles down. In his bio he claims membership in the "Sons of Confederate Veterans"
His posts are what we have come to expect. He also tags other Jacksonville firefighters in his posts.
To say that the Jacksonville Fire Department has a problem with racism would be an understatement.

And guess whose name pops up when you start digging into the problem of racism in the department?
Anthony Treadwell
The same Anthony Treadwell that posts racist, Islamophobic, and violent content. The same Anthony Treadwell who wants to join a hate group so that he can "curb stomp" people.

This Anthony Treadwell
Action Items: Contact the department
You can also reach out to Jacksonville City Council…

Who is still platforming the "Proud Boys"

@TwitterSafety and @Facebook by having "Proud Boy Elder" Nicholas Ochs on their platform.

Did we mention that he is running for office in Hawaii with @gophawaii?
His Twitter is locked down but his profile shows the murder of a Japanese man by a far-right extremist. Charming.
His other @twitter account is up and running with lots of bad info on Covid which makes him on brand as a "Proud Boy"

The narrative that America is on the brink of "civil war" is a far right narrative, that when uncritically repeated by the left only furthers the agenda of their enemies.
The story of the coming of the next civil war was ironically birthed around the time the American Civil War ended.
Confederate dead enders, who ended up forming the Ku Klux Klan held fast to the idea that the battles were far from over and as they abandoned their fight against the hated Yankees they took up the fight against newly freed slaves.

Meet Casey O'Brien of Springfield OH. A Nazi bitchute vid enthusiast and member of the @splcenter designated hate group the "Proud Boys." He recently attended the "Proud Boy" march in Kalamazoo MI

Thanks to @AntifaGarfield we were able to put a name to a face
Casey went and uploaded footage from that day to his YouTube channel, which is really kind of something special. He also does the Bitchute thing
And Bitchute is where he posted the Nazi video and to say it's a Nazi video doesn't quite do it justice. It is a completely vile Nazi video

Meet Joesph Fredrick of Paducah KY @murraystateuniv student and member of the white supremacist @Facebook page "Rise of the Art Right."
The page could be described as neo-reactionary, but it's essentially just slightly repackaged Nazi trash.
As we discussed in previous posts, these FB groups are functioning as hate groups and we are treating them accordingly.

Erik Guite reportedly lives in the #Boise #Idaho area and we are concerned that he may be preparing to harm himself or other people.
Erik is A Q-Anon guy, which in and of itself is a red flag, but recently his posts have become more threatening and concerning.
These kinds of posts go on and on.
