1. For a long time I wondered who Shane Long was. He was always around Identity Dixie members on Facebook. Turns out he's a commercial airline pilot and was/is in multiple hate groups.
2. There were other images including ones with the Identity Dixie magnolia and another piloting a small plane, but "Shane Long" is very common and he never interested me enough to invest the amount of time I'd need to sift through endless search results.
3. Recently I discovered he publicly posted the obit for his grandmother. In it he was listed as Capt J Shane Long.
4. Whoever wrote the obit really made it easy. Thank you and condolences.
5. From there it wasn't hard to find Jonathan Shane Long, who was employed by @piedmontair, which is owned by @AmericanAir.
6. Shane's location is hard to pin down because it appears he has moved regularly, but the Mid-Atlantic is his main stomping ground.
7. That DoD security clearance part is going to be a problem later. So, let's get into it.
8. In 2013 Matthew Heimbach attempted to start a "White Student Union at Towson University.

9. Vice made a documentary about it and "Shayne", who was Chairman of the Maryland League of the South" was there supporting Heimbach.
10. At one point in the video Jonathan Shane Long says a prayer for Heimbach then goes with him on a patrol looking for crime. The implication in the documentary was that it's minority crime they're hunting for.
11. You can watch it here:

12. By 2015 Jonathan Shane Long was Chairman of the Maryland-Virginia League of the South.

13. Jonathan Shane Long has given a speech at the League of the South National Conference.

14. He has also been interviewed by fellow Identity Dixie and LOS member Michael Cushman.

15. Michael Cushman aka Michael O'Neal thinks white people should still have Black slaves today.
16. Jonathan Shane Long has also attended a white supremacist rally in DC covered by @IdavoxOPP

17. June 5, 2017 Identity Dixie founder and leader Bret Lynn aka Musonius Rufus invited J Shane Long to their Smokehouse vetting chat on Facebook.
18. On November 9, 2017 he was invited to their member chat.
19. Shane was a leader in the League of the South and a member of Identity Dixie. That's two hate groups.

"Maybe he no longer associates with racists" you might say.
20. This was his profile image last week.
21. I see familiar names.
22. Andrew Tracey lead the Tampa area League of the South. He's extremely racist.
23. Christopher CM is Christopher Monzon. He has a long history of racism and affiliation with League of the South.

24. February 23
26. Even on his grandmother's obit post, multiple hate group people.
27. Dennis Durham was also a LOS State Chairman and Identity Dixie member.

28. Jasmine Moriaz was an Identity Dixie member. Word is she got fired from her job for this racist post.
29. Candi O'Brien attended the deadly UniteTheRight rally in Charlottesville and her husband was in Identity Dixie and League of the South.

30. What I'm getting here is that Jonathan Shane Long, who is a pilot for @piedmontair @AmericanAir, has spent a full 10 years in hate groups or surrounded by hate group members. He's a lifer.
31. Do the passengers at @piedmontair @AmericanAir know they might be having a multiple hate group lifer racist flying them around? Well, they do now.
32. I'm curious if this diversity messaging is talk or truth.

33. I don't know if Jonathan Shane Long is still a member of Identity Dixie or League of the South currently, but based on his past member and present associations, does it even matter?
34. @threadreaderapp unroll this accountability.
38. National Geographic on immigration.

40. Would you care to comment @JonathanSLong1?
41. Jonathan Shane Long did not wish to comment.
41. Jim O'Brien aka Padraig Martin forgot to use "in Minecraft" at the end of his paragraph.

If he wasn't involved in a decade, why was he i. Identity Dixie with you in 2018? Learn to math Jim.

1. I'm over the moon to introduce you to a UTR attendee and shield carrier, and member of Identity Dixie and League of the South. Meet Jeb Stuart Lessley aka Seeker aka Paul Pale Coney of the Birmingham, AL area ImageImage
2. Where do I even begin with Jeb Stuart Lessley? How about in 2016 when he made national news for putting up a sign in his yard to run off the registered sex offender neighbor. Dozens of articles were written.

3. In 2017 the house where the sex offender lived burned down. It was arson.

⚠️⚠️ Action Items Included ⚠️⚠️

1. On September 9-10 the League of the South is holding their annual National Conference at the Pine Level Community Center in Alabama.
2. The League of the South is a hate group that believes the southern US should be a white Christian ethnostate.

3. They held no national conference in 2020, due to Covid, so this is their first opportunity to meet since 2019. Let's try to make it as unpleasant as possible.
