More FBI Agents Performing Hinkily

As we’ve mentioned before, the FBI supposedly provided 25% of the KKK’s membership during the civil rights era. [stderr] I don’t blame you in the slightest if that is unbelievable – it took me a while to decide that it was probably true. And, we can see the damage that the FBI’s “penetrate and suborn” tactics do: I was listening to Ibram Kendi’s anti-racism podcast the other day, [kendi] and he was discussing anti-asian racism, and mentioned that Richard Aoki [stderr] as an example of Black/Asian cooperation. Oops, no. I wrote him a terse note to check Aoki’s background more carefully – he was an FBI agent trying to get Black Panthers killed, not help them.

I won’t say “it comes as a surprise” because the FBI’s shenanigans (second only to the CIA’s) surpass my ability to be surprised anymore, but: [vice]

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has paid a man involved in a publishing house specializing in occult neo-Nazi books more than $100,000 since 2003, according to court filings. 

The publishing house is Martinet Press, fine purveyors of Atomwaffen Division-approved books such as Iron Gates and Liber 333. The former is a book about a Satanic cult roaming a post-apocalyptic America, which opens with a scene of a child being murdered.The apparent informant is Joshua Caleb Sutter, a man with longstanding ties to white supremacist organizations. Sutter’s father was a Pentacostal preacher who ran racist memorabilia stores in the area around the South Carolina capital of Columbia; Sutter and his father would take turns running the counter.

No doubt the FBI wanted their mailing list so they could cross-match it with names off of compromised websites, and look people up on Facebook so that they could stand around and watch what crazy shit they get up to.

The documents don’t use Sutter’s name, but the description of the FBI’s confidential informant leaves little doubt that it’s him. “The government has informed defense counsel that the CI in this case has worked as an informant for the FBI for approximately the past sixteen years,” the court records said. “Since 2003, he has been paid over $140,000 for this work. More importantly, the CI has been paid $78,133.20 plus an expense advance of $4,378.60 since February 7, 2018, which almost entirely coincides with his work on the investigation into Mr. Cole and Atomwaffen.”

As Pete Seeger said:

Which side are you on boys?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on boys?
Which side are you on?
They say in Harlan County
There are no neutrals there.
You’ll either be a union man
Or a thug for J. H. Blair.
I’m beginning to think it’s one of those things like in Woody Allen’s rare funny movie Bananas in which the CIA operative explains that they have guys on both sides of the war so that way they are sure to be on the winning side.

    As Pete Seeger said:

    “Which side are you on boys?
    Which side are you on?

    Pete Seeger sang it, but he didn’t write it. It was written by Florence Reece, the wife of a union organizer.

    Yeah, and the CIA was working with all those fascist death squads in Central and South America with the intention of bringing them down… Sure.

    He’s a possibility to consider: the FBI keeps funding right-wing terrorists because it wants to fund right-wing terrorism.

    Your linked article has it at 20%. And no I do not believe it. There may have been 2,000 FBI informants, but I bet there was a lot more than 10,000 KKK members.
    Prior to your post, I was wholly unaware of Atomwaffen and this case. 3 of the 4 indicted have pled guilty with the 4th scheduled for trial next month.
    One of those who pled guilty, Tyler Parker-Dipeppe, was sentenced to no additional prison time.

    Parker-Dipeppe’s attorney, Peter Mazzone, said prison would be devastating for his client, who suffered abuse from an unaccepting father, from an alcoholic stepfather and from school bullies who tormented him.

    Parker-Dipeppe, who goes by Tyler, had known since age 5, when he was growing up in Egg Harbor, New Jersey, that he wanted to be a boy, but his father threw away the “boy clothes” his mother bought him and physically abused him, including choking him, Mazzone wrote in a sentencing memo.

    In his early teens, his high school failed to protect him from incessant bullying and eventually paid $50,000 to settle a lawsuit he brought.

    He moved to Florida to live with his mother and her husband, who one day came home drunk and beat him severely, breaking his front tooth and smashing his head against the driveway.

    “This led him to just seek acceptance, and unfortunately he found it from these knuckleheads,” Mazzone said, referring to the group of about 10 boys, mostly 15 and 16 years old, who made up the Florida Atomwaffen cell.

    U.S. District Judge John C. Coughenour in Seattle agreed during a virtual court hearing Wednesday, sentencing Parker-Dipeppe to time served after Parker-Dipeppe tearfully apologized for his actions.

    Coughenour said he struggled with his decision because he was mindful of the fear and suffering such harassment can instill. But he added: “None of us have suffered the difficult situation this defendant has endured as a result of his gender identity confusion. … Enough’s enough.”

    A lot to unpack there.
