If you’re outside of antifa circles, you may not have noticed that, after Trump’s inauguration, the far-right began making honeypot websites in a pathetic attempt to doxx antifascists. One such website that garnered attention was “antifascism.org,” created by Denver-area nobody Alex Beck. We want to make it clear from the start that Beck has very little of interest to say in regards to pretty much anything. Though he likes to throw around slurs and conduct strange racist demonstrations, his incoherent “libertarian” politics are completely beside the point to us. Antifascists are interested in Alex Beck because he is attempting to track us and our allies and, in doing so, is aiding fascists.
In an article written for Campus Reform, a publication that hired a vocal supporter of a neo-Nazi gang member who burned down a historic Black church as a “journalist,” Alex Beck claimed that Antifa painted a Valentine’s Day love note on the side of his father’s company vehicle.
In the article, Beck claims “Numerous groups and individuals have alleged that I setup antifascism.org as a honeypot to collect ANTIFA information. All of the claims are false … Truth be told, I didn’t even have the means to do this …” If this were the case we wonder if he could explain this script in antifascism.org’s source code that appears to be tracking users:
The code appears to relay information to Google Analytics and Survey Monkey. While Beck may not be able to retrieve the IP addresses of his website’s visitors using this software, he can likely retrieve many useful tools for doxxing anyone who visits the website. These probably include the visitor’s internet service provider, approximate location, and possibly even social media information.
For this reason, we encourage everyone to avoid visiting this website altogether. However, if you must, some precautions might help. Use Tor Browser, and make sure you are not logged into any social media on your computer at the time. (A VPN with the same social media precautions will also likely thwart Beck from being able to find out much useful information.) Using Privacy Badger, a tool provided by the Electronic Freedom Foundation, also helps to block trackers like Google Analytics and Survey Monkey.
Currently, this site is basically just a link to another site where Beck complains about antifa with a script running in the background that is tracking you, so we really don’t see much of a reason to visit it at all.
Beck has also recently met with equally-irrelevant shitlord Ivan Throne, a “Men’s Rights Activist” who promotes psychopathy and claims to be “more Nazi than [Richard] Spencer.” Well, Beck, we’ve been about twenty steps ahead of you this whole time, but if you aren’t “done playing,” we’re happy to make sure you quit playing.

We hope your life gets a little harder and lonelier as you descend into the alt-right pit, you pathetic fuck. “Free speech” doesn’t mean living without consequences for your words and actions. If you’re fighting on the same side as Nazis, you don’t get to pretend like you’re on the side of liberty.
Why don’t you do everyone a favor and fuck off already?
