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.

Self-Identified Fascist Madison Hebert Working at First Community Credit Union

UPDATE 11/14/18

From what we can tell Madison Hebert does not appear to be working at First Community Credit Union any longer, although she did work there within the two weeks prior to our original post. The bank has not, to our knowledge, released any official statements about her employment status there, but they have said that they can’t find an employee working there with that name any longer. We are not yet sure of the terms upon which she left the company, or if it was related to our posts about her.

Summary

Madison Noelle Hebert is a self-identified fascist who currently works as a bank  teller on the “float team” (workers who float between different bank branches) at the First Community Credit Union in Houston, Texas. We called the bank ourselves to confirm that she still works there as of October 2018.

Around social media Madison has not been shy about sharing her white supremacist beliefs and does not hide her friendships with large groups of active and dangerous neo nazis. Additionally, in past years she had been dating another fascist named Stephen Ramos, although it appears the two are no longer together at this time. Outside of work, Madison attends Lone Star Community College (CyFair Location) and frequents hip bars and venues around Houston, often with small cliques of other neo nazis and various bigots.

Details

Madison Hebert has been identifying openly online as a fascist since at least 2016, if not earlier. In real life, she continues to build strong relationships with other local white supremacist groups and individuals. She has pictured herself in casual settings next to members of Patriot Front, and frequently likes/shares their groups content on social media as well. As you will see, she has many friendships with deeply involved Neo-Nazis across social media. She had formerly been dating another fascist named Stephen Ramos, but more recently we believe the two are no longer together. Regardless, both appear to have held on firmly to their white supremacist beliefs. Below we will include various forms of proof we have compiled, to corroborate these claims.

Two selfies from Madison’s Twitter which she captioned “A Real Fashy Goy.” Goy/Goyim is a Hebrew term which means non-Jewish. Neo-Nazis often refer to themselves as Goys.
A general compilation of some of Madison Hebert’s tweets which are filled with racism and Nazi content. She has since changed her twitter name multiple times, but you can see her selfies with her old username as well.
A few pictures of Madison Hebert and some of her friends, which she describes as her “Family of Bigots.” These group photos include not only a known member of Patriot Front (who often goes by Zeljko Stajnovic online), but also her friend Mark Peterson who is a fascist that has been doxxed before by other groups.
Mark Peterson was already doxxed by other groups from Austin, Texas last year. Brief info from their post about him is available in this image.
A fascist symbol superimposed onto the “come and take it” slogan, posted by Madison’s Ex, Stephen Ramos, and liked by Madison as well.
These are a few of the more notable fascists from the friends list of Madison’s old Facebook account. They include Alexander Wheeler, who we mentioned here, Daniel Kleve, who was doxxed here, and Sydney Crabtree, who was doxxed in the image shown above.
A screenshot of Madison liking a post by another one of her friends, who is also a Patriot Front officer, about joining white supremacist groups.
Even more racist/Nazi posts from Madison, after she changed her twitter name to “swell lady.”

As you have probably noticed by now, Madison’s social media has been so full of horrible racist and fascist content that we hardly have the space to include it all in this post. We encourage you to look her up on social media yourself as well, to see the posts first hand before she tries to delete them.

We cannot allow this person to continue working among every day people at First Community Credit Union, or anywhere in Houston for that matter. Please call her supervisor, Jamie, at (281) 856-5795, or the general bank number (281) 856-5300, or call Madison Herself at (281) 571-1098 and let them know what you think. Here is a sample script of what you could say if you call the bank:

“I am calling to let you know that your employee Madison Hebert has been exposed as a Neo-Nazi who has deep ties to a variety of local white supremacist groups. I am very uncomfortable with this person representing your company here in Houston. She is open about being a fascist online and clearly holds strong racist and anti-Semitic beliefs. With the growth of white supremacist groups in recent years and the violence they have committed nationwide, her presence at your company is unacceptable. I demand that you fire Madison Hebert immediately, and make a clear statement that she is no longer an employee.”
