New York Times Nazi couple raising money on an alt-right crowdfunding site after being fired from their jobs

Published

The “Nazi sympathizer” couple in New Carlisle, Ohio featured in a Sunday New York Times profile is raising money on the alt-right fundraising site “Goy Fund Me,” Los Angeles Times national correspondent Matt Pearce revealed on Tuesday.

The story, by Times reporter Richard Fausset, was widely criticized for “normalizing” Nazi sympathizers Tony and Maria Hovater.

“Communists, Antifa, and general basement-dwelling ne’er-do-wells set to work immediately, identifying their place of employment and harrassing (sic) their management into terminating them,” the Hovater Support Fund on Goy Fund Me reads. “As many of you are already aware, the New York Times released an article profiling Tony Hovater, the Chief Operations Officer, and a founding member, of the Traditionalist Worker Party.”

The Hovaters are using “Goy Fund Me” (which claims no relationship to “Go Fund Me”) after online financial services companies refused to do business with neo-Nazis and white supremacists in the wake of the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, which resulted in the murder of Heather Heyer, The Verge reported in October.

PayPal, Patreon and GoFundMe all stopped processing financial transactions for white nationalists. So “Goy Fund Me” was launched, using the modern Hebrew and Yiddish word ‘goy’ to refer to funding for non-Jews, by non-Jews.

Now the Hovaters appear to be cashing in on their white nationalist celebrity, using the niche fundraising website.

“While the holiday season is upon us and everyone is most certainly spending the majority of their money on gifts, we would like to ask that you consider donating to the Hovater Support Fund,” the page continues. “As a general movement, we must show solidarity through supporting our own and helping them back to their feet, even in times where it may be an inconvenience to us. Giving is what the spirit of Christmas is all about and we ask that this season, please dig deep and donate what you can to this wonderful newlywed couple.”

Kyle Bristow, author of the racist revenge fantasy White Apocalypse (read cringe-worthy passages here), tried to bring white nationalist Richard Spencer to Michigan State University.

Bristow is asking his supporters to donate to the fund.

‘Bulletproof from a pardon’: Fox News analyst says judge in Stone case just made things tough for Trump

Published

on

In the wake of Roger Stone's sentencing of 3.5 years in prison this Thursday, Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano posited that U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson's choice to go along with Attorney General Bill Barr's sentencing recommendation could have been an effort to pardon-proof the sentence from President Trump.

"[Jackson's] trying to make this bulletproof from a pardon," Napolitano said. "Because she went along exactly with what [Barr] requested."

Adam Schiff sends signal that a Roger Stone pardon would be another impeachable offense

Published

on

Rep. Adam Schiff suggested that a presidential pardon for Roger Stone would be an impeachable offense.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced the longtime Republican operative to 40 months in prison, saying Stone had lied to Congress and threatened a witness to cover up possible wrongdoing by President Donald Trump -- and Schiff sent a warning against a pardon.

"Roger Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress and threatening a witness," Schiff tweeted.

Schiff, who led the impeachment inquiry and trial, agreed with Jackson -- whose language echoed the lawmaker's "corrupt scheme and cover-up" indictment during the Senate trial.

Trump ally Roger Stone frequently led chants of "Lock her up!" about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign -- but on Thursday, the table decisively turned.

After Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for charges of perjury, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice, a crowd of people greeted the right-wing dirty trickster by chanting, "Lock him up!" outside the courthouse.

At least one supporter of President Donald Trump tried to get a "pardon" chant going, but they were drowned out by the louder "Lock him up" chants.

Watch the video below.
