Welcome, fellow antifascists! This week, we’ve got Oi Boys getting doxxed, an eco-fascist who volunteers at an animal rescue, a new dox of a member of The Base, and all the latest fails and doxxes from the Proud Boys rally in Albequerque, New Mexico.
Without further ado, let’s begin!
DA Drops Charges Against Some Boston Antifascist ‘Straight Pride’ Parade Protestors
Straight Pride Parade fallout: Boston DA wins fight over counter protester arrestshttps://t.co/0vYr9Zqrjk

Two weeks ago, Boston police went wild with arrests at the ‘Straight Pride’ Parade put on by a tiny number of local neo-Nazis and associated fascists, rounding up 36 counter-protestors and zero fascists. At their arraignment, the Boston DA moved to dismiss most of the cases, but the judge overstepped and denied the motion in an attempt to force their prosecution. After a ruling in favor of the Boston DA by the Massachusetts Supreme Court last Monday, all but eight counter-protestors’ cases were dismissed.
Portland Police Bureau Investigates Self, Clears Self of Any and All Wrongdoing
The Portland Police Bureau clears a lieutenant investigated for chummy communications with right-wing protest leader Joey Gibson. Chief Danielle Outlaw says it's the media's fault. @NigelJaquiss reports. https://t.co/0KJ8Kytn9U

Portland Police on Friday concluded their investigation into the case of police liaison Lt. Jeff Niiya’s close contact with fascist provocateur Joey Gibson, by officially clearing themselves of any collusion. This was after a February FOIA release clearly showed that Lt. Niiya had colluded with Joey Gibson in text communications to keep Proud Boy Tiny Toese out of jail on an arrest warrant. Portland Mayor and Police Commissioner Ted Wheeler cowed completely to police in his statement at the press conference. Accompanying the results of the investigation was a dump of all liaison communications since 2017.
This is shocking. Portland police knew well before Jeremy Christian murdered two people in May 2017 that he was a threat and his picture had been circulated to police Sgts the previous month. pic.twitter.com/WBdbwxZ27C

Those communications revealed that the police knew not only about white nationalists in the Patriot Prayer ranks, but also that MAX murderer Jeremy Christian was a known threat prior to the murders.
Red-Flagged Veteran Airs Plans to Murder Antifascists in their Sleep
I'm assuming that at some point one of the many WN Militia groups are going to literally attempt to carry out this plan, so please make sure that your home is protected and keep records of anyone who's publishing names of activists pic.twitter.com/33xkwZJ2jJ

Portland veteran Shane Michael Kohfield was first in the news a few weeks ago because he was sent to a VA mental health facility and his weapons were confiscated after he stood on the sidewalk in front of Mayor Wheeler’s home and revealed his plans to murder antifascists.
After getting out of the hospital and denouncing his earlier claims, Kohfield on Thursday went on the far-right Lars Larson talk show to describe his detailed plans for groups of veterans to murder antifascists in their sleep.

Using the Facebook name “Tia Chase,” she attempted to provide support for James Fields, convicted of murdering Heather Heyer at Unite the Right in August 2017. She also used Facebook to post white nationalist propaganda, including adorning her profile photo with a custom “Goyim Lives Matter” frame.
Originally hailing from Ohio, Foster moved to Brooklyn, where she became involved with the leftist Occupy movement before falling into racist National Anarchist circles, appearing on white nationalist podcasts by 2012.

ABQ Turns Out Against Proud Boys and Hiwaymen
Anyway the counter protestors did great and drowned out the proud boys with frequent screams of "what, we cant hear you" and a great dance party while they stood around miserable. Thanks frens and fam! #nofashnm pic.twitter.com/0JtHLgnpjl

Proud Boys held a rally in Albequerque, New Mexico, on Saturday. They were joined by members of the neo-Confederate Hiwaymen, who appeared in their token neon green t-shirts.
An estimated 15 far-right rally goers were outnumbered by approximately 100 protesters. The Proud Boys were joined by Alan Swinney, despite public assurances that Swinney had been disavowed by the Proud Boys after leaked chats revealed that he had planned a violent attack on protesters at a failed 2019 Resist Marxism rally in Providence, Rhode Island.
In the chats, Proud Boys traded pictures of leftist activists they planned to assault and swapped photos of the weapons they planned to bring.

Hundreds of community members showed up to protest a thinly-veiled and poorly-attended (between 35-50) neo-nazi rally in Dohlonega, Georgia on Saturday.
The number of cops in Dahlonega today is like double the population pic.twitter.com/NZtWzb71qo

Cops made an extremely dystopian show of a force, with riot police marching around the streets in full riot gear. Police would later post on social media that they were mobilizing for the “antifa protest,” making it clear as to what ‘threat’ they were responding to.

In fact, the main stories out of these tiny rallies nowadays are about police and their complicity in aggressively protecting and propping up overt white supremacy.

Emerald City Supporters Walk Out Over Iron Front Ejection
— Kody Cicale (@KCicale) September 15, 2019
ICYMI, Major League ‘Soccer’ (aka Football) has banned the use of the anti-Nazi Iron Front logo from flags and banners at matches, saying that it represents a political position and as such is disallowed. Meanwhile, some teams like NYCFC openly embrace neo-Nazis within their fan ranks.
Amidst this tension, on Sunday an Emerald City Supporters fan flew an Iron Front flag during the first half and was ejected from the match. In protest, nearly the entire Sounders’ Brougham End supporters group section walked out in protest after halftime.
