He told the New York Times in a short video documentary that he rushed to get to Spencer after the news of the sucker-punch. In just nine months that followed, Mosley went from being a self-described “Twitter troll” to a leader in a neo-Nazi and white nationalist movement.
One year ago, Kline was an entry level human resources staffer with a secret life online as Eli Mosley, “the Jew hunter.” During a podcast he thought was only for an alt-right audience, he revealed his identity as an HR person “who fires n***ers and sp*cs all day. Before that I was in the Army and I got to kill Muslims for fun. I’m not sure which is better: watching n***ers and sp*cs cry that they can’t feed their little mud-children or watching Muslims’ brains spray on the wall. Honestly, both probably suck compared to listening to a k*ke scream while being…” The audio cuts off from there.
“Identity politics for white people is like my immediate goal is to give alt-right people the push to link the online world with the real world and take up space,” he told the Times.
Footage of Mosley shows him marching in front of the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. with short-haired men in white dress shirts and khaki pants chanting “the Jews will not replace us” and later “you will not replace us.” The rallying cry proved to be one that protesters yelled holding tiki torches the night before the Charlottesville riot.
“We are a group of well-mannered, good looking, young, white people with something to say,” he explained.
“Every weekend he either attends an Alt Right meet-up or goes to Richard Spencer’s house in Alexandria, VA to strategize,” detailed the One People Project, a site that outs members of the alt-right, white supremacist and neo-Nazi movement.
The Times noted that Mosley and his cadre frequently emphasized a connection between the military and the white supremacist movement. He claimed many veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars joined the cause after becoming frustrated in the political system. “In his telling, members of the alt-right were patriotic Americans who had come to their extreme worldview through honorable life experience, not hatred,” the Times reported.
The fact is, however, as a member of the Army National Guard, Kline was never deployed to Iraq.
“I was not surprised,” Times reporter Emma Cott wrote in her assessment of the interviews. “At the same time, I couldn’t believe he would lie so boldly, first to his fellow members of the alt-right and then to a Times reporter, on camera.”
She eventually confronted him about it.
“So did you go to Iraq?” Cott asked.
“I was in Kuwait,” he claimed. “I told you that before.”
“You told me you went to Kuwait and then you went to Iraq,” Cott questioned.
“Basically, it’s very similar the way it works,” he replied.
The more they talked, the more his story changed. Any photos of the time he spent there had been “lost,” he explained. He promised he’d send military forms that would prove his time, but they never came.
“It’s a far more fulfilling life than going through the motions of a life that could be anybodies,” he said.
When Trump was elected, “Eli Mosley” decided to come out for the cause. Some saw the error of their ways after Charlottesville, but Eli was only emboldened.
“Deception is baked into the alt-right, so ‘Eli Mosley’ is a perfect match for the movement,” Cott closed.
