I'd love for Era to cross reference that email list with its member data. I bet you it wouldn't turn up 0 hits.
People certainly wouldn't be stupid enough to register on a site like that with anything else than a one time use throwaway email address would they (they probably would)?

Iron March was affiliated with or offered support to at least nine fascist groups in nine different countries over its six-year span. Several violent neo-Nazi paramilitary fascist groups were organized on the forums, including the Antipodean Resistance and the Atomwaffen Division. Members and associates of the groups and their offshoots have been connected to at least five murders documented by the SPLC and Rational Wiki.
The open source journalism collective Bellingcat has already established a forum for people to collaborate on research.

The above Twitter thread is disturbing.

Those links are banned on Era, which is a good thing. I came across KiwiFarms a couple of months ago and it's truly pathetic... Those people are obsessed.
They will probably look at this thread, and post it, and say we are being oppressive and then make something spiteful about people who are transgender. I wonder if they are intentionally ironic or just dumb.

I hope all of those fuckers face all possible consequences including being fired from their jobs and shamed by society at large.

Don't know if some of them can be prosecuted since we have their private messages but it would be great if it could happen too.

I actually know a white supremacist guy in Dublin, he joined this 'Nordic defence league' to keep 'the implementation of sharia law' away. Wonder if he's included.

As people have already said, on top of cops, I don’t doubt there’s a wealth of teachers, doctors, politicians, and business managers that could be among these exposed. White supremacy is insidious and far-reaching.

You give too much credit to racists.
Yep. Hell there are multiple instances of common people and politicians posting vile, bigoted shit on Facebook with their real names and faces. They’re brazen and think they’re above consequences (which don’t often come anyway) so I don’t doubt that the people on this list were of the mindset that there’s no need to be careful.

Some people have very bizarre behaviors with email addresses. There was someone in Bangladesh who kept using my personal gmail address (which is my full name, and not a common one) to register for sites like Netflix and Spotify. I would go into the sites and change the password every time

I have a co-worker who this has happened to as well, except it was a person in the US and they used his email address for sensitive stuff like medical records.

You would want to correlate the email address with the IP address to have any confidence that it was a legitimate match.

For reference, here is the google doc with research on probable military members.

thats was disgusting to read

I had a high asvab job so didn’t come in contact with dudes like this, just the same libertarian youth one would find in a college campus. Dudes don’t understand the irony of working for the most socialistAmerican institution, and being a libertarian lol.

My crew were pretty outspoken as far as politics went at work, so we shut that racist shit down, I’m guessing at least one or two the quiet folk who never joined in convo might’ve been suspect.

Yeah, I was wondering why they chose the same name. Nobody in the group knows what Al Qaeda means I guess.
I think there is some degree of awareness and even mutual respect here since both sides subscribe to the same" clash of civilizations" world view that they want the rest of the world to get on board with.

You're probably right. At least there's zero ambiguity as to what they stand for.

We all know that the FBI won't do shit. If this were an ISIS forum they'd crack down so hard.

The most extreme measure any US authority has taken in the long term was the military banning members of KKK and similar groups. And that was only after they had been stealing military ordinance for decades getting more and more brazen about it.

This makes no sense. How are they able to use your email without a verification? Especially Netflix and such.
And you always get a chance to report when a verification email is sent to your email. How do you not use this?

Some sites don't require email confirmation before you use them. Though I still don't understand why they would use my email address rather than just register their own. Like I said, it is bizarre.

With Spotify they sent me a confirmation email in Indonesian, then a "your password has been automatically reset due to suspicious activity" email a couple hours later.

The article mentions a site called "Bellingcat." I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with it, but apparently they are going through the data on their forums.
FWIW, Bellingcat are the people who posted photos from the Russian invasion of Ukraine showing that the Buk launcher who shot down MH17 was sourced from and crewed by Russian Army regulars.

Sort of releated: A cohost of Richard Spencer's podcast was outed as a psychologist and professor at Kingsborough Community College in NYC, which the majority of the student body are people of color.

Damn how many people did he fuck over?

Wouldn’t care too much what they think of us. However, wouldn’t surprise me if Kiwifarms people are on this white supremacy list. Their founder, Josh Moon, is a literal nazi, so...

Edit: Literally look at his RW page. https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Kiwi_Farms#Joshua_Conner_Moon
