Houston Nazis Doxx Each Other Following Anti-Fascist Actions

On Saturday, June 8th, anti-fascists exposed a realtor named Paul Preston as being the leader of a local Neo-Nazi Group called the Houston Goylers. On the same day they confronted him outside his home in Houston’s Near Northside neighborhood where he lives with his Neo-Nazi girlfriend, Ariel Gherman. Before news even had a chance to spread about the confrontation, active members of Houston’s Alt-Right were already well into an uproar of infighting and blame on Facebook. Weeks prior to the event, tensions were already running high between “AK Lane”, an Alt-Right woman who was dating a Patriot Front member, and Paul Preston. AK Lane had vaguely accused Paul of being a “Nazi LARPer with a Jewish girlfriend” (Ariel bears a commonly Jewish surname), and Paul had in turn been making jokes about AK Lane’s body and appearance for some time. Preston further inflamed tensions by implying it was preferable to date an attractive non-white woman over an opinionated fascist white woman, angering the more “principled” Nazis. This infighting, driven largely by the hopelessly dramatic Paul Preston, ironically rendered him helpless and friendless just a few days later when a large bloc of anti-fascists arrived at their doorstep. Demonstrations continued for well over an hour, with Ariel hiding inside with no one to call upon for aid.

After finding out the hard way that being a Nazi in the real world won’t be tolerated, Paul and Ariel took their anger back to the internet looking for someone to blame for this series of humiliating defeats – while others made laughable claims they could have done something differently to stop us. Over the next few days arguments among fascists flared and it was revealed by AK Lane’s boyfriend that she had previously threatened to doxx Paul Preston.

Upon seeing this, Paul and Ariel became convinced that AK Lane had been solely responsible for doxxing them. Incapable of believing that anti-fascists could collect such extensive information on their own, a number of stories began circulating online about AK Lane working with antifascists and doxxing her former friends.

In actuality, Paul had doxxed himself by posting pictures from his home office, and by identifying himself as Wooderson on film during a fascist “Texas Is Ours” rally in Austin the year prior. AK Lane had not, despite her threats, communicated any information about Preston but it ultimately didn’t matter. His unprincipled, panicked, childishly dramatic demeanor lead him to doxx AK Lane as Kathryn Powell, a name not previously known to us. Both Paul and Ariel made a concerted effort to distribute this information widely online, including photos of Kathryn’s work badge as a TMS Transit Specialist for TAPS Public Transit in North Texas. It’s unclear if that is her current or former employer.

Throughout the weeks following, Kathryn Powell has been the target of continued harassment from her former Nazi associates. Memes, jokes, and threats about her have been circulating across fascist social media circles and are being shared by fascists not even originally involved in these disputes. She is no longer dating her boyfriend from Patriot Front, who appears to have betrayed her by releasing her threats to doxx Paul Preston. It’s no surprise that the first people they are ready to betray are women. The Alt-Right is deeply rooted in misogyny, and they will always seek to blame their own failures and weaknesses on women first. 

Kathryn is still active in some fascist circles such as the “Othinn Folk” Nazi Pagan group which she administers on social media along with other Neo-Nazis. Paul Preston and his friends have gone out of their way to make a fake Facebook group where they make fun of Othinn Folk and Kathryn Powell herself. These events seem to have pitted Paul Preston and his friends in the Houston Goylers and Patriot Front against anyone who supports or tolerates Kathryn in other groups.

White supremacists, and in this case “Chad Nationalists” in particular, build themselves up as strong, disciplined fighters who put their “movement” above all else. In reality, these are fragile, childish white men terrified of being exposed and ready to throw each other under the bus at the first sign of trouble.

Man Caught With Weapons at El Paso Rally Exposed as Houston InfoWars Activist

Who is Thomas Bartram?

Thomas Graham Bartram is a Houston resident who recently appeared on the news for waving weapons around in El Paso after Trump’s visit in response to the mass shooting that took place last week. He was detained by police outside a Community Center and released without arrest or citation. He can be seen posing next to his truck which is covered in pro-Trump, InfoWars, and other far right wing bumper stickers. One can’t help but be reminded of Cesar Sayoc’s white van. While police execute black and brown people for holding any number of random objects when stopped, they continue to be able to detain white men with large rifles unharmed, even in the midst of mass shooting sprees. Not even a week after El Paso saw a young man gun down dozens of innocent people and post his racist Alt-Right manifesto, this other young white man very visibly associated with wingnut Alt-Right groups shows up with weapons, wearing rubber gloves, and is sent on his way with a wag of the finger at a related event. Unbeknownst to the public, this is not even the first time Bartram has been detained and released by police officers for flagrancy with weapons. Many believe his actions and politics mirror that of the beginnings of mass shooters and violent white supremacists, and that action should be taken before he injures or kills people, not after.

Bartram, 21, is part of the “InfoArmy,” the pathetic following of conspiracy-peddling white supremacist Alex Jones and his dollar store replica Owen Shroyer. Jones is currently embroiled in a legal battle over his part in urging his base to harass the families of the Sandy Hook victims, including his defense sending a cache of child porn to the families lawyers. Bartram frequents the InfoWars forums, openly posting about his organizing and propagandizing activities around Houston. His crew have done multiple “banner drops” with white supremacist slogans such as “Itz OK 2 B white” while brandishing guns, and have taped dozens of InfoWars fliers around the Houston area. After one banner drop where they were confronted by a concerned citizen, Bartram and crew were interviewed by Shroyer on InfoWars’ official channels. Just as 8chan was recently shut down for it’s part in radicalizing the El Paso shooter, a case could be made for InfoWars radicalizing and even officially endorsing violent extremism as well.  While goofy, conspiracy-driven groups like InfoWars and more mild “Alt-Light” groups like the Proud Boys may seem like less of a problem than explicitly fascist and Neo-Nazi groups, they must still be understood as a very serious threat. Organizations like InfoWars may not openly advocate for genocide or ethno-states, but they certainly attract people who are interested in those things as well as dangerous wingnut conspiracy theorists who believe mass shootings are their last option.

Bartram, who goes by @texas_T online, doxxed himself, posting his name, date of birth, and phone number. His twitter is filled with deranged racism, homophobia, and nationalist rants.

On Bartram’s bitchute page, we discover videos of him having been detained by police in the past for brazenly waving guns around on public streets. Police detained him, joked with him, and then let him go. Not that cops will ever challenge white supremacist ideology, Bartram facing consequences may have prevented the citizens of El Paso from yet another danger to their safety. Bartram also posts videos showing off one of his guns, as well as the hundreds of dollars worth of InfoWars snake oil he consumes daily

Daddy’s Money

Thomas was home schooled and his background fits the stereotype of a privileged white boy who was radicalized online by right wing conspiracies. His family is very wealthy and seemingly right wing, supporting his cosplay lifestyle. His father, Mark Albert Bartram, born February 6th, 1960, has worked at companies such as BP, IBM, and as the Vice President of Koch Industries. He is currently an “Executive Partner” with Gartner Executive Programs. The Trump-plastered truck Thomas drives around was bought by and registered to his father, who is clearly enabling his son’s participation in the Alt-Right scene.

Yesterday Thomas posted that he’ll be on his way to Portland, Oregon for an August 17th “End Antifa” Rally, we can guess who is paying for his travels. We hope any of our comrades who may encounter this person stay safe and are aware of his history.

“ANTICOM” Nazi Brendon West Exposed in Central Texas – Updates

NOTE: The below article contains updates to a post made by Central Texas ARA earlier this week.
Summary

Photographer Brendon West has been exposed by Central Texas ARA as a highly active member of Alt-Right circles who has been working to compile and publish doxx about various leftists, both locally around Central Texas and Nationally. (link above)

“Brendon West (aliases include Vlka Fenrika, Fenrika Foxtrot, and Foxtrot DEVGRU) is an alt-right activist and leader of “Anticommunist Action” (ANTICOM). He has photographed and attempted to dox NLG volunteers and others in Central Texas. West led the effort to dox Spenser Rapone, a West Point student expelled from the Army for anti-imperialist statements.”

Updates
The Professional associates of Brendon West (alias Fenrika Foxtrot, Vlka Fenrika, etc.) have attempted to cast doubt on the ItsGoingDown article documenting Brendon’s fascistic behavior. Jacob Stone of Phantom6Productions went so far as to call the article “fake”. 

Jacob Stone did not make clear what particular piece of information he considered false, but we will conclusively demonstrate here that:

    1.) Fenrika Foxtrot is Brendon West

    2.) Brendon West has been involved in the doxing of legal aid volunteers, anti-confederate protestors, and others.

    3.) Brendon West has disseminated fascist material including podcasts from FashTheNation and The Daily Shoah, articles from The Daily Stormer, and more. 
    
    Our fight is not with Brendon’s professional contacts. We are not accusing Phantom6Productions or Jacob of any racist activity. All they are asked to do is make clear they will cease association with Brendon. If they insist instead on lying, defending Brendon, and forcefully denying reality we will be unable to help them. 
    

   1.) Fenrika Foxtrot is Brendon West

   
   This is undeniable. Brendon West has been tagged and named numerous times as Fenrika Foxtrot, as shown below. Brendon is pictured wearing a campaign t-shirt for the alt-right candidate Paul Nehlen. Here and in numerous other instances Brendon is tagged by Fairy Godmother Ninja productions as Fenrika Foxtrot. 
  

 

Brendon West is also listed as the owner of Libertus7 productions on LinkedIn and elsewhere. Here is Fenrika Foxtrot taking credit for Libertus7 videos, further proving that Fenrika Foxtrot is Brendon West.

  

  2.) Brendon West doxxing people

  “Vlka”, one of Brendon’s aliases screenshotted earlier (Vlka Fenrika III), is referred to in the “Front and Center” Patriot Front Discord server here.

  Below, Brendon brags on multiple occasions about doxing Spenser Rapone, and posts photos of National Lawyer’s Guild members:

  3.) Brendon West sharing fascist material and associating with Nazis

  Below, Brendon shares a FashTheNation podcast featuring antisemitic candidate Paul Nehlen:

      

  Below, Brendon shares an image (perhaps of his own creation) celebrating “Unite The Right”, the rally in Charlottesville that lead to injury and death just two days before his posting. 

  

  Below, Brendon (with Camera) attends a political rally alongside Neo-Nazi Ken Reed (Red Hat):

  

  Below, Brendon shares an article from the DailyStormer, a site so racist multiple companies have refused to host it: 

   

   It is undeniable that Brendon West is an active fascist. 

   

   

With all that said, why defend him? His friends know this. His professional contacts know this. Some, who have chosen to defend him, apparently find children getting tear gassed at the border to be funny, and consider him to be the “ultimate internet troll.”

We are here to remind Brendon and all who would foolishly defend him that we don’t consider Nazis very funny at all. His professional contacts are not, for now, our primary concern. We do not have reason to believe that Stone himself is involved in any political activity or overt racism and we do not consider him a fascist. But attempting to deceive the public, and calling the truth a lie, in the defense of a Fascist can change their situation as rapidly as they wish.
All statements made in the original article are factual, none of it is false, and there is no denying the truth of these claims. 
   
If Brendon cared about his friends, he would simply own up to his errors publicly and make a real correction to his behavior instead of making colleagues tell embarrassing, disgraceful lies that help no one.    
   
For now, do your part to alert the following sites to Brendon’s far-right proclivities:
    
    
Please contact these studios on Facebook and ask them to publicly explain their (current or prior) association with Brendon and to clarify that it will not continue:
