The Online Influencers Mainstreaming White Supremacy to Teen Boys

Whereas Carlson reaches some three million weekly viewers on his daily evening program, Cozy.tv’s 40-plus streamers, each with their thousands of viewers, give intimate and personal displays of hate speech 24 hours a day. Fuentes, who’s in regular contact with his 45,000 subscribers on Telegram and 137,600 followers on Gab, broadcasts his own brand of racism to 18,000 followers on Cozy.tv for two to four hours a night. “Big story obviously, all weekend, a lot of news, what a gift!” Fuentes exclaimed, kicking off his livestream on Monday, the first since the Buffalo shooting. “Well, let’s rewind. … I’m not saying it’s good — some of it is very tragic and bad; some of it is very interesting.”

With a wry smile Fuentes continued, as if rehearsed, to walk back his initial excitement. “The mass shooting in Buffalo New York […] is a very bad thing, very evil, horrifying and tragic thing. I’m not trying to make light of it, I misspoke,” he explained. Then, within a breath, he pivoted. “That being said, it does not change the fact that white genocide is real, it is occuring now and it is wrong,” he urged his young viewers. “This is the idea of our lifetime, it’s the number one most impactful trend of our lifetimes.”

But where Carlson might otherwise leave his audience stewing in anger, Fuentes’ jocular, ironic disposition allows him the cover of plausible deniability. Most importantly, his young, growing audience of men already know what’s behind the wry smile and in-jokes, and they echo the vitriol in a chorus on the live chat, then over on Telegram, and Reddit, and 4chan and on and on and on. Until, as with Gendron, it all becomes far too real — and tragic.

“I don’t want to be replaced ,” wrote a member of a Fuentes fan group on Telegram during the beginning of his livestream. “The White man will rise once again. THIS COUNTRY WOULDNT EXIST WITHOUT WHITE PEOPLE.”


mom surprises son


Jacksonsville Sheriff are looking for racist who attacked woman at gas station

Intense videos show the moment a man can be seen hitting a woman at a local gas station.

The victim, Rayme McCoy, spoke with Action News Jax and said it started when she says he made racist remarks towards someone else outside the BP gas station on University Boulevard and Fort Caroline Road.

The police report says the man-made racist remarks toward someone else outside the gas station and McCoy said he was continuing those same remarks inside while buying beer and ended up directing it toward her.

She said he put the beer he was buying on the counter in front of her and when she asked for space and tried to move it, that’s when she says she was attacked. She also said he told her that he had a gun in his car.

In an intense video, you can see the older man punching McCoy several times on each side of her face.

She told me she has a black eye and a blood clot in it, as well as a busted lip and some knots on her head as well, saying the ordeal has been overwhelming both physically and emotionally.

The report said there’s probable cause for an arrest but the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told me today that they’re still searching for the man and so he hasn’t been arrested.

woman sheds a tear at the doctors office. It shows up on her bill

youTuber Camille Johnson, from New York, says her sister has a rare disease and has been struggling to find appropriate care.

During a recent trip to a clinic, she says her sibling ‘got emotional because she feels frustrated and helpless’.

‘One tear in and they charged her $40 without addressing why she is crying, trying to help, doing any evaluation, any prescription, nothing,’ the vlogger said.

In a Twitter thread revealing pitfalls of the American healthcare system, she wrote: ‘They charged her more for crying than they did for a vision assessment test.

‘They charged her more for crying than for a hemoglobin test. They charged her more for crying than for a health risk assessment. They charged her more for crying than for a capillary blood draw.’

For all these other tests, Camille’s sister was charged between $15 and $30, as shown in a photograph of the bill.


search for motorcyclist in Indiana. Pummeled 68 yr old driver until he passed out and crashed.


another pedestrian death accident handled in a shady way. Identity driver kept secret for 2 months

Placer CEO name kept secret until AFTER it was determined he wasn't at fault.


After weeks of speculation, a Northern California county official confirmed that he was the driver of the vehicle that killed an 18-year-old high school student in March.

Todd Leopold, Placer County’s county executive officer, confessed in a news release May 13 that he was responsible for the car crash that killed 18-year-old Anthony Williams on March 19.

KCRA reported that the crash took place in Rocklin on Lonetree Boulevard and Adams Drive, adjacent to the Blue Oaks Town Center mall. Williams, a student and basketball player at Inderkum High, was walking on the road when he was struck by Leopold. Police said at the time that the driver was cooperating with the investigation, the news station said.

"My words and emotions cannot adequately express my profound grief and sadness," Leopold said in a press release. "I am heartbroken for the loss of this young man and extend my sincere condolences to Mr. Williams’ family, friends, and all of those impacted by this tragic accident."

But in the weeks after Williams’ death, KXTV reports, his family and friends — as well as an activist group — have been critical of the police’s investigation, frustrated in particular about the nearly 2-month duration of their investigation and their failure to identify Leopold after the incident.



Placer County CEO who killed teen has history of speeding, was once arrested on DUI charge

Six years before his vehicle struck and killed Inderkum High School student Anthony Williams, Placer County CEO Todd Leopold spent a night in a Colorado jail after he was arrested for speeding through a ski town while impaired by alcohol, police and court records show. Leopold’s June 2015 drunken driving charge was ultimately dropped as part of a guilty plea for the speeding infraction for going 35 in a 25 mph zone.

The Colorado speeding ticket was among at least four that Leopold — Placer County’s top non-elected official — has received over the years, according to records The Sacramento Bee reviewed through a series of public records requests. Rocklin police have said the driver who killed Williams was not at fault.

Still, Leopold’s driving history is likely to renew outrage among those demanding answers about what happened March 19 when Leopold’s vehicle killed the 18-year-old high school senior.

In the two months since the crash, Rocklin police have released only sparse details. They’ve never disclosed what make and model of vehicle was involved, whether impairment or distraction were a factor or how fast Leopold was traveling — all relatively basic details investigators often release after fatal wrecks.

Rocklin police Capt. Scott Horrillo declined to comment Tuesday. An autopsy report The Bee obtained Tuesday shows that Williams was walking “within the lane of traffic” when he was hit. He had a small amount of THC, the intoxicant one ingests when using marijuana, in his system. The report does not elaborate on what preceded the crash.

DeSantis doles out millions to mostly rural areasbut fails to mention it mostly comes from Uncle Sam


DeSantis doles out millions but fails to mention it mostly comes from Uncle Sam

Gov. Ron DeSantis has been on a spending spree for months, taking credit for millions of dollars in federal stimulus money he’s handing out to mostly rural Republican counties while at the same time bashing President Biden’s big government spending.


“I think it’s hypocritical,” said Ben Wilcox, research director for Tallahassee-based government watchdog group Integrity Florida. “He’s taking credit for something that’s not really his to claim credit for.”

One political strategist said it’s part of a plan to shore up DeSantis’ base and win bigger this time compared with his razor-thin 33,000-vote victory in the 2018 governor’s race, thus boosting his profile for a possible run for the presidency in 2024.



DeSantis has repeatedly called the federal stimulus money “Washington at its worst” and blames it for the nation’s high inflation rate.

“We’re proud we didn’t do like Washington and spent money like a drunken sailor when all of a sudden you end up with all these problems,” he said at a recent event in Trenton where he doled out federally funded grants.

DeSantis never mentions the largesse he is sharing comes from Washington. Instead, he attributes the money to Florida’s strong economy as he hands out oversized checks at campaign-style events, calling himself “DeSantis Claus” on at least one occasion.


‘Borderline campaign events’
The appearances, almost always in DeSantis-friendly territory, “are borderline campaign events,” Wilcox said.

He often spends the first 15 or 20 minutes delivering a stump speech sharing his views on inflation, gas prices, the culture wars, COVID lock downs, Elon Musk’s proposed acquisition of Twitter and China. Those topics seem geared more toward a national audience than a local one, Stipanovich said.

Despite being billed as press conferences, he seldom takes questions from reporters who attend.

An old refrigerator becomes a vital gathering spot after mass shooting in Buffalo

In the fall of 2020, somebody placed an old refrigerator at Jefferson Avenue and Welker Street in Buffalo, N.Y., and plugged it into an outlet in an adjacent building. https://www.facebook.com/buffalocommunityfridge

It became a small source of pandemic relief for families in one of Buffalo’s poorest neighborhoods. Volunteers did their best to keep it stocked with donated groceries. Anybody who needed food was free to raid the fridge, or the cupboard set up beside it.

Now, in the wake of Saturday’s shooting massacre in Buffalo, the fridge has never been more important to the community.

It sits just half a mile or so from the Tops Friendly Markets store where an 18-year-old gunman motivated by anti-Black hatred killed 10 people and wounded three.

Amid their grief, the residents of Masten Park are also faced with a very practical concern now that the store is closed: It was the only place for blocks to buy groceries.

“Do you have soap?” a woman — one of dozens of people still waiting in line as the sun began to set Tuesday — shouted to the volunteers who had been showing up all day at the fridge to hand out food. “Do you have dog food?”


Queer camp counselor was told not to come back. So they opened their own camp.

Shira Berkowitz loved being a counselor at an overnight summer camp in Minnesota. In 2007, Berkowitz, then 22, was primed to become the program director for ninth-graders, but then a message arrived: Please don’t come back to camp.

Staff at the camp, which Berkowitz requested not be named, “would say inappropriate things about my sexuality, and question whether it was right that I would be in the same cabin of same-sex kids,” said Berkowitz, who identifies as queer.

Parents also voiced concern about Berkowitz’s gender identity and sexuality, and Berkowitz believes the controversy led the camp to ask them not to return the following summer.

While the incident was profoundly upsetting, Berkowitz, having grown up attending and appreciating Jewish summer camps, decided to give camp another go.

They went on to work at another Jewish overnight program in Rocky Mount, Mo. Berkowitz described the camp as “a very accepting place to be, but it was also very isolating to be one of the only queer people at camp.”

So, along with a few others, Berkowitz has created a nondenominational camp that directly caters to LGBTQ campers and staff.
