It takes a nation to protect the nation
It’s hardly news that the Regime Media has a soft spot for the leaders of the Antifa terrorist movement. Nor is it surprising that the Lügenpresse has published several glowing profiles of Antifa’s leading Doxers (see below) without any concern, apparently, that these people openly harass, attack, defame, and seek to ruin financially and professionally ordinary American patriots. Antifa even wants to “dehome” them and their families—a direct threat to the physical well-being of innocent children. Make no mistake: Antifa is dangerous.

Despite all that, top Antifa leaders are hardly common criminals. They are the offspring of the wealthiest and most (white?) privileged members of society: doctors, lawyers, professors, and corporate executives. Several might be millionaires in their own right.
Permit me to introduce you to a few.
Christian Exoo is the leader of “Deplatform Hate,” a cyberstalking campaign that seeks to force social media, fundraising sites, and email marketing services to deplatform patriot political dissidents.
Deplatform Hate advertises several more known Doxers: Abner Hauge, Talia Lavin, and Madeleine “Molly” Conger.
Conger a “senior researcher,” told the Post what she, Exoo and her pals want to do:
I’m interested in disincentivizing this behavior. I’m interested in raising the cost of being a white nationalist, raising the cost of being a Nazi, raising the cost of making these threats anonymously online, and making it clear that these people are not as hard to find as they think they are.
[A small group of sleuths had been identifying right-wing extremists long before the attack on the Capitol, by Robert Klemko, January 10, 2021].
In other words, they want to silence the opposition—just like the goons that showed up at Carlson’s house.
Exoo goes by several noms de guerre on Twitter, including Antifash Gordon and Dox Savage, which he uses to encourage his tens of thousands of followers to deluge businesses with requests to fire or evict working people [Meet the Undercover Anti-Fascists, by Andy Kroll, Rolling Stone, February 14, 2021].
Maybe that’s because the uber-privileged Exoo family never has to worry about unemployment or homelessness. They are cocooned in a web of wealth and nepotism at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York.
Attorney Diane Exoo and professor Calvin Exoo, Christian’s parents.
Christian Exoo’s father, Calvin Fred Exoo, is an emeritus professor at the university as well as a writer at Leftist outlets Salon, TruthOut and Huffington Post.
And where Daddy Exoo goes, Christian is not far behind.
And wouldn’t you know it, Christian’s Mommy, Diane Exoo, an attorney, is or was an assistant adjunct professor at St. Lawrence University.
Dreadlocked brother Josh is an associate professor at the university.
St. Lawrence doesn’t post faculty salaries online, but Glassdoor.com lists average base pay for a professor emeritus at $167,483 per year, excluding benefits.
Josh Exoo, of the ubiquitous Exoo brood
For an attorney, average base pay is listed as $107, 549 per year.
No wonder Exoo feels entitled to dox the rabble, the Deplorables, the great unwashed: firefighters, nurses, mechanics, and teachers. Working stiffs. Even when none of them have been accused of violence, breaking the law, or even making a racially insensitive comment.
Thus Exoo has targeted a firefighter, not accused of unlawful conduct, and a public-school teacher who attended a protest of which he, Exoo, did not approve.
He’ll even attack a target’s innocent family members. In the case of a Florida nurse, Exoo promoted a campaign by “Panic in the Discord,” an Antifa Doxing collective, to target the victim’s wife and their newborn baby.
They publicized the baby’s gift registry and published photos of the infant.
Then they directed a mob to contact the family and their employers.
No one had accused the new Mom and Dad of any wrongdoing. And even if they had done something “wrong,” that doesn’t make it right to dox a baby.
But Exoo doesn’t care, as Ngo’s Post Millennial reported:
“I don’t just stalk fascists. I also get them fired, de-homed, kicked out of school, etc.” He then incites violence against his victims, “It’s really satisfying to punch a racist. They bleed nice, too”.
[Notorious Doxing Activist Accused of Racism and Predatory Behavior, Post Millennial, January 6, 2020].
Exoo’s followers once included Dayton Antifa mass murderer Connor Betts. After Exoo posted a list of targets much like the ones in this article, Betts responded, “Know your enemies” [Dayton Shooter’s Now-Suspended Twitter Appears To Have Had Pro-Antifa, Pro-Gun Control Comments, by Shelby Talcott, The Daily Caller, August 5, 2019].
Should we blame Christian Exoo?
The Post and Rolling Stone also profiled Abner Hauge, who runs the Left Coast Right Watch website and Twitter feed and works with Exoo at Deplatform Hate.
Hauge purchased a gun to prepare for war with his rivals and has been photographed wearing clothing emblazoned with semi-automatic rifles over social justice slogans like “Defend Equality,” as the Post reported.
Hauge dresses down in a sort of crust-punk hobo chic, but like Exoo, he’s the scion of wealthy parents.
Pictured: Abner Hauge, with mother Robina and father Evan
Hauge’s mother, Robina Bhatti-Hauge, emigrated from Pakistan in the 1980s and is now a global studies professor at the California State University Monterey Bay. She collected a cool $156,776.27 in salary and benefits in 2019 [Source: Transparent California].
The father, Evan Palmer Hauge, lists his occupation as fine woodworker and home chef. But he partly owns Robina’s Organics, a sprawling multimillion dollar farm in Salinas, California. The farm, which includes a massive six-bedroom home, was valued at $2,603,261 in 2017.
A sister, Maheen Ruby Hauge, works in an architecture firm and runs an art gallery, another vocation of the wealthy and privileged.
While many of the Hauge family’s sources of income are unknown, the mother’s salary from CSU alone is 2.29 times the 2020 median household income.
Factoring in grants, farm income and the father’s income (unknown) as well as property assets, easily situates the Hauges in the Antifa’s dreaded top 1 percent.
Another member of Deplatform Hate is Talia Lavin, a vicious Doxer from one of the most elite and privileged families on this list.
She’s known for spreading disinformation about Justin Gaertner, a computer forensics analyst with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Gaertner is a wheelchair-bound Marine veteran who lost his legs serving in Afghanistan.
Lavin, a former “fact-checker” at The New Yorker, falsely accused Gaertner of being a “white supremacist” because of a “Titan 2” platoon tattoo on his elbow, which she confused with a Nazi symbol.
Unlike the working stiffs that Deplatform Hate attacks, after the magazine “cancelled” Lavin for smearing the Marine hero, she landed another high-profile job with Media Matters [Media Matters Hires Ex-New Yorker Fact Checker Who Falsely Said ICE Agent Had Nazi Tattoo, by Jon Levine, The Wrap, July 20, 2018]. And she still has a megaphone with the Leftist Regime Media: Boston Globe, Washington Post, Real Clear Politics and Business Insider [Muck Rack]. Less than a year later, The Wrap’s Levine reported, New York University’s journalism hired her to teach “reporting on the far right,” then canceled the class … but not because she smeared someone [NYU Cancels Former New Yorker Fact-Checker Talia Lavin’s Journalism..., March 20, 2019]. The problem? Low enrollment!
James Lavin graduated from Harvard University with a biochemistry degree, and Talia freely admits that she was a “legacy kid” at Harvard. Daddy got her in, even though she’s only a B+ student. Another of Talia’s sisters was also admitted into Harvard as a “legacy” student, then went to Mount Sinai with her mother.
James Lavin and Gila Leiter own a $2.7 million condo in Manhattan.
The Lavins potentially control millions of dollars in assets, likely putting them in the top 1 percent of wealthiest Americans.
Despite all the privilege and wealth, Lavin calls her father evil because he supported Donald Trump.
An irony of Lavin’s wealthy upbringing is how she routinely chides her victims with such terms as “middle-aged business owners” [Confronting white supremacy among our neighbors, our families — and ourselves, by Talia Lavin, Boston Globe, January 15, 2021]. She affects the air of a righteous, proletarian communist warrior despite her wealthy background, and punches down at the most stigmatized and vulnerable strata of society.
Madeleine Blair “Molly” Conger
Molly Conger, who thinks her opponents are “Nazis,” leveraged the Unite the Right rally to increase her national profile. While Conger—Twitter handle, @socialistdogmom—is often seen wearing a red communist bandanna, she too comes from a privileged bourgeois background.
Her father is John Conger, an assistant program manager for a major defense contractor, who lives in Virginia Beach with Molly’s mother, Blair Ferguson Conger. She is a midwife with the Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center. Program managers of Conger’s type earn about $137,000 annually [Indeed.com]. The average salary for a midwife was $105,030 annually in 2019. High-end earners make $158,990 per year [Bureau of Labor Statistics].
Molly Conger graduated from the University of Virginia and was project manager at an education software company, as the Washington Post’s Klemko reported in its friendly profile above. In 2017, she founded Conger Consulting, LLC. Now that she rakes in thousands of dollars per month in Patreon donations, she’s a full-time social media activist.
Some highlights from her malevolent career:
She instigated a targeted harassment campaign to destroy his small business and taunted him about losing custody of his child in a divorce proceeding.
Conger is also another of the Leftist “activists” who doesn’t like her father. “I’m familiar with the wrongs my father did in service of this shitty country,” she tweeted.
Jared L. Holt is a media personality who attacks conservative journalists. While he chafes at being linked to Antifa, he continues to invite the association by repeatedly working with notorious extremists like Conger and Emily Gorcenski [Behind The CJR’s Hit Job On A Researcher Exposing Antifa-Journalist Connections, by Emily Stolzfoos, Daily Caller, June 15, 2019].
Because Holt is from Bentonville, Arkansas, readers might think his roots are humble. In fact, he’s just another rich kid.
Holt’s father, Larry Allen Holt, is a recently retired corporate executive with J.B. Hunt, the trucking company. Compensation for a J.B. Hunt National Account Executive is estimated at $81,664 base pay with $34,568 in additional compensation: $116,232 per year [J.B. Hunt Transport National Account Executive Salaries, Glassdoor].
Salarywise, the Holts are in the top 2 percent of American workers, excluding investments and real property.
Upon leaving Arkansas for Washington D.C., Jared Holt immediately hooked up with George Soros’ Media Matters and People for the American Way, his LinkedIn page says.
He used the substantial resources at his disposal to target conservative journalists like Ashley Rae Goldenberg, a first-generation college graduate and daughter of two blue-collar parents. A slight, unassuming reporter with Capital Research Center before Holt’s attack, Goldenberg made the mistake of challenging Leftist Regime Media hysterics about the “racist whites” who murder “unarmed” blacks [Capital Research Center Employee Favorite Source for White Nationalist Smear Campaign Against Ahmaud Arbery, by Jared Holt, Right Wing Watch, May 14, 2020].
In particular, Holt attacked her for highlighting inconvenient facts in the Ahmaud Arbery case. Arbery, recall, was shot while “jogging” through a repeatedly burglarized white neighborhood and tried to seize a shotgun from a suspicious resident.
Exoo promoted the hit piece and called Goldenberg a “Nazi.” She is Jewish.
But Goldenberg lost her job at CRC after Holt’s piece, which was preceded by months of attacks from Conservatism, Inc. [Jared Holt and ConInc Push Conservative Non Profit to Fire Ashley Rae Goldenberg, by Gabriel Keane, National File, May 26, 2020].
On another occasion, Holt stalked reporter Cassandra Fairbanks after Leftist terrorists attacked her home. The terrorists shot guns and fireworks at her house and pounded on her windows, which forced Fairbanks and family, including a young daughter, to flee [‘Ridiculous lawlessness’: Journalist Cassandra Fairbanks says her home ATTACKED by rioting mob as 9-year-old daughter hid inside, RT, June 1, 2020].
Fairbanks also received threats from extremist blacks, including the repellent rapper Key Nyata. “Maybe you need a bullet in the back of your skull,” he tweeted [Twitter Lets Verified Account Threaten Journalist with ‘Bullet in the Back of Your Skull’, by Lucas Nolan, Breitbart, May 29, 2020].
Of course, Fairbanks was terrified.
Holt then canvassed her neighborhood and spoke to neighbors for a hit piece defending the left-wing agitators. Fairbanks recorded a conversation with her neighbors who accused Holt of fabricating quotes that insinuated Fairbanks was not the victim of a real attack [Exclusive: Rioters Attacked My Home and Jared Holt Created a Wild Conspiracy Theory to Cover for Them, by Cassandra Fairbanks, Gateway Pundit, June 22, 2020].
Like Exoo, Holt influenced Dayton Antifa mass murderer Connor Betts. But Holt furiously covered his trail, deleting old tweets and blocking Betts to remove his retweets of Holt’s toxic material [The Dayton Ohio Terrorist was ANTIFA Supporter, by Michael Cernovich, Cernovich.com, August 5, 2019].
Emily Gorcenski, born Edward, is a “transgender woman” and hard-core Antifa hacker and cyberstalker living in Berlin, Germany. Gorcenski is friends with Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, who follows Gorcenski on the site. Perhaps that explains why Twitter hasn’t stopped Gorcenski’s harassment and violent propaganda, such as hit lists of political enemies.
Gorcenski has celebrated and advocated violence against me on multiple occasions. Hacked materials from my private Facebook account are still live on her Twitter feed, in violation of Twitter’s purported policies.
Gorcenski was also in charge of organizing the Antifa “counter-protest” against the Charlottesville Unite The Right rally on August 11 and 12, 2017, and credits a “diversity of tactics” approach to its success.
“Diversity of tactics” has been successfully argued in several federal court cases to mean use of violence.
Gorcenski’s parents appear to be white conservative Republicans of the kind Gorcenski frequently calls “Nazis” on social media.
When I say they are white, I mean both parents. Gorcenski is Asian and was likely adopted.
But they aren’t the story in this case. Gorcenski is apparently wealthy in her own right.
Gorcenski is head of data for Thoughtworks in Germany. Thoughtworks is a “global software consultancy” corporation with 43 offices in 14 countries. It claims “social justice” as one of the “Three Pillars” of its corporate philosophy.
According to Twitter user @LurkingGoblin, Gorcenski uses a technique called “crime laundering,” whereby she’s “careful to limit her criminal activities to actions illegal in the US but while living in Germany.” It’s “a technique used by Antifa to frustrate law enforcement by exploiting the international nature of the internet.” She’s living in Germany, and doxing people in America.
Gorcenski posted clearly identifiable pictures of his house and truck, and Doxed his employer, too.
But it turned out that Gorcenski had fingered the wrong man.
And even little children aren’t off-limits for Gorcenski, as this tweet shows:
Gorcenski posted serial numbers from the boats to identify and harass attendees.
What you can do:
You are not helpless! If you have lost your job due to Doxing and harassment, you have a right to sue, just like Daniel D’Ambly did. D’Ambly is a Unite the Right 2 attendee, Teamster, and platemaker who lost his job after a campaign by Christian Exoo [Lawsuit: SLU allowed ‘Antifa’ member to harass, by Scott Atkinson, 7News WWNY, September 23, 2020].
Remember, the late David Yeagley actually prevailed in his lawsuit against One People’s Project, and Jared Taylor has succeeded in using the courts to make the State of Tennessee recognize the First Amendment rights of the American Renaissance conference.
Cyberstalking is a crime in most jurisdictions.
To report tweets violating Twitter’s rules, like the ones in this article, click the three dots in the upper left corner, select “Report Tweet” from the dropdown menu, select your reason for reporting as “It’s abusive or harmful,” then “Includes targeted harassment.”

Leftist enforcer Jared Holt likes to ruin people’s lives. He takes pride in deplatforming patriots from social media and payment processors, and, of course, enjoys watching them lose their livelihoods. Yet the patriots that Holt has made a career of attacking have done little to publicize his own past or activities; i.e., his close ties to Antifa, and other advocates of terrorist violence, or his sly suggestions that police and conservative women deserve to be harmed. Now it’s time to dox another doxer.
Holt has a long past of inflammatory, inappropriate commentary on social media. During high school, he instructed high school girls not to “look like an easy freshman whore.” Others who called themselves “freshies,” he wrote, “sound like a queer” [REVEALED: Anti-Gay Facebook Past of Right Wing Watch’s Jared Holt, by Peter D’Abrosca, Big League Politics, June 27, 2019].
Holt got his start in Washington D.C. politics working at Media Matters, the “non-profit” that “monitors” conservative media. Holt then built his resumé at RightWingWatch, a project of People for the American Way [Meet Jared Holt, the guy who’s getting Alex Jones kicked off the internet, by Amanda Marcotte, Salon.com, August 8, 2018].
While there, he spread the media smear, which ended in court settlements, that Nicholas Sandmann and the Covington Catholic High School kids were “racists” for defending themselves against the racial insults of the Black Hebrew Israelites and an Indian fake war hero at the March for Life [Viral Video Showing Covington Catholic High School Students Prompts Propaganda Warfare, by Jared Holt, Right Wing Watch, January 22, 2019].
Now Holt is grazing on greener and better-funded pastures: The Atlantic Council. Like most other think tanks, it boasts of a lofty mission: “The Atlantic Council promotes constructive leadership and engagement in international affairs based on the Atlantic Community’s central role in meeting global challenges.” In other words, it’s another of the ubiquitous Leftist foundations that provide employment for the otherwise unemployable.
Instead of writing 250-word hit pieces about conservatives, Holt’s new position confers the prestige of being an extremism “expert.” Holt, of course, has no expertise in anything except character assassination, but that aside, at least he needn’t work all that hard. A search of the site returns just two “reports,” both done with others.
It’s a nice, cushy job if you can get it, at a nice, cushy prominent think tank.
In fiscal 2018, the most recent year for which there are tax forms available, The Atlantic Council brought in $30 million in contributions and grants. People for the American Way brought in a piddling $7 million. Clearly, Holt has moved up in the world.
The Atlantic Council is the ultimate Deep State Death Star. Contributions of $1 million or more came from Facebook, Goldman Sachs, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the embassy of the United Arab Emirates.
Other Big Names include these Blue-Chip companies:
Of course, it also takes money from taxpayers around the globe in the form of subsidies from the U.S., British, French, German, Japanese, Finnish, Lithuanian, and Bahraini governments. The European Union is also a contributor.
Subsidies from American taxpayers come from the departments of Defense and Energy, the U.S. Marine Corps (!), and the U.S. Mission to NATO.
As reported earlier, Holt’s family is wealthy and well-connected; nor is he alone in his world-shaking endeavors. His fiancée is Andrea Schultz, otherwise known as Dre Schultz on social media. Her LinkedIn page advertises her as a grants specialist in the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance at the U.S. Agency for International Development, which means she helps distribute foreign aid.
So while Holt’s Atlantic Council receives money from the U.S. government and foreign governments to talk about so-called right-wing “extremism,” his fiancée helps make the U.S. government’s decisions on disaster assistance. No conflict of interest there!
Last year, by the way, Holt wrote about the ouster of White House USAID liaison Merritt Corrigan, something of an interesting hit piece given his fiancée Schultz’s job at the agency [Ousted USAID Trump Appointee Teaming Up With Right-Wing Hoaxers Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, RightWingWatch, August 4, 2020].
That said, a strait-laced, wing-tipped outfit like the Atlantic Council, and the governments and corporations funding it, should not be too happy their money is funding an “extremist” researcher and professional doxer who is, as is his record shows, practically embedded with Antifa. USAID, which appears to shy from controversy, should not be too happy that one of its employees is intimately involved with an apologist for far-Left extremism and terror.
Consider a few highlights from Holt’s career as a doxer and podcast host:
So I’m going to join in the chorus of Splinter, and say that you should absolutely not send dick pics to a phone number that reads—actually, you know what? Bleep that out. I don’t want to get accused of harassment. Let’s not do that this time. But yeah, there is an article on Splinter that does have these tweets embedded, which are still live for some f***ing reason, [...] but yeah, do not send Joey Salads your dick pics. Disavow. We do not endorse.
As for his opinion of what should happen to conservative women, Holt said this about Fox commentator Tomi Lahren:
[Cardi B] made this Instagram video where she’s talking about the government shut down and then, when Tommy Lahren, or Tamara Laundry, or whatever the f-ck you wanna call her, tweeted that Cardi was, you know, she’s saying this sarcastically, “The latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats.” Cardi responded back, “Leave me alone. I will dogwalk you.” Which is slang for just like, basically, beating the shit out of somebody. ... It f-cking rules, man. I’d love to see.
Holt’s fiancée might contemplate that remark before she walks down the aisle. But anyway, he revealed on his podcast he has relied on research from Antifa to help dox his political enemies:
I wrote a piece last year for RightWingWatch. We were able to sort of follow up on the work of antifascist activists and researchers [emphasis added], who believe they had identified [Jack] Corbin. We were able to come in and hit the nail on the head and just get it down rock solid that this was exactly who he was.
Holt also consorts with open Antifa extremists and even runs interference to defend fellow “journalists” from being accused of being associated with Antifa. The so-called journalists—VDARE.com calls them “Journofa”—have a vested interest in downplaying the violent threat from Antifa, as Holt regularly does.
But he bristles if you accuse him of Antifa sympathies.
Consider the following:
“I’m Antifa,” her Twitter bio says, and Sennett also calls herself the “Antifa Yenta,” or “Yentifa.”
But Sennett doesn’t support Antifa; it’s her full-time, real life job. Sennett considers Daryle Lamont Jenkins, the man behind the radical doxing outfit One People’s Project, her “BFF.” She’s worked with Jenkins and with OPP for 16 years. For the record, OPP sells “Antifa” merchandise on its website. So there’s another Holt-Antifa connection.
More proof that Holt is tight with Antifa can be found, again, at his podcast. Given that a frequent leftist talking point is that “platforming” someone who peddles “hate” is “endorsing” what they say, Holt must be endorsing the views of the most vile Antifa apologists. One of them is Kim Kelly, who appeared on Sh!tPost in 2019.
As Van Spronsen and many other heroic comrades before him have made clear, there are many ways to fightback against a violent fascist regime. Perhaps it’s time for more of us to put our thinking caps on.
That was July 14. Kelly appeared on Holt’s podcast the next day.
While she was at Vice, Kelly published an article with this headline: How to Make the Perfect Milkshake for Throwing at Fascists [May 28, 2019].
Throughout her career, Kelly has defended Antifa—even in The Washington Post [Stop blaming everything bad on anarchists, June 4, 2020]. Antifa, she wrote, is peaceful.
Note that Holt seemingly endorsed O’Brien’s views by telling people to show him “some love” and to follow him on social media.
O’Brien himself wrote a puff piece to support Nashville Antifa, portraying them as innocent victims, while interviewing the violent Corey Lemley [Nazis March In Tennessee Today. Last Time That Happened, I Ended Up With Antifa In A High-Speed Car Chase, HuffPo, January 21, 2018]. The previous year, Lemley assaulted reporters with a baseball bat.
O’Brien has bragged about interviewing “dozens of Antifa.”
O’Brien not only supports Antifa by helping “platform” them, but also attended a talk by Ngo to accuse the Antifa victim of falsely connecting O’Brien to the terror outfit [Andy Ngo decries Antifa ‘ideology’ in DC, by Cockburn [sic], The Spectator, November 8, 2019]! He even accused Ngo of being a “fascist sympathizer” because Ngo, a homosexual, opposes Antifa terror.
Another of Holt’s podcast guests is Emily Gorcenski, an Antifa activist who advocates violence and doxes political enemies. Gorcenski is also a confessed hacker, a big no-no, according to the Twitter Rules.
Like many on the left, Gorcenski doesn’t differentiate between “Nazis” and normal, average, everyday Trump voters. To Gorcenski, they’re the same, and deserve the same fate. Using the display name “ANTIFA is better than Patriots,” Gorcenski solicited photos from a Trump boat parade to dox the attendees and ruin their lives. Gorcenski brags about her gun skills in preparation for conflict with right-wingers, and of course backs Antifa and its terror tactics.
Holt has also hosted “Socialist Dog Mom” Molly Conger. Holt’s a big fan, and instructed listeners people to follow Conger’s Twitter account after she publicly praised terrorist Van Spronsen, who she called “a modern-day John Brown.”
She also has mocked the deaths of police officers as part of a longer thread making fun of what is considered a line of duty death.
Conger shows off her gun skills on Twitter, with Gorcenski warning people should “shouldn’t mess” with her.
Conger also endorsed Holt’s podcast. Holt, apparently, has not disavowed support from the Antifa-loving “activist.”
The podcast recommendation was spurred by Nation contributor Jordan Uhl, who, like Holt and Antifa fellow travelers, trivializes its violence. Uhl even “corrected” CNN when a CNN headline got close to speaking the truth about Antifa.
Of course, Holt defends media comrades connected to Antifa. In the Columbia Journalism Review, Holt critiqued a damning report by Eoin Lenihan, who showed just how tight some journalists are with the terror group [Right-wing publications launder an anti-journalist smear campaign, June 12, 2019].
Holt even referred to Antifa partisan Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, as a “lecturer at Dartmouth,” which doesn’t quite do him justice. To make his point, Holt hid the truth. For Holt, “anti-extremism research” runs in only one direction.
Holt has coasted through much of his career without criticism, of course. Conservatives are afraid to push back for fear of appearing in one of his hit pieces and losing a job. He answers criticism in vulgar, profane, sexist language.
Yet Twitter said they did not violate any rules.
Coincidentally, Twitter is one of the top donors to the Atlantic Council. Given that Jack Dorsey follows Gorcenski, one can conclude he is an Antifa sympathizer.
Maybe Holt isn’t quite the right candidate to help The Atlantic Council in “shaping the global future,” as it modestly describes its mission.
Rosa Luxemburg [Email her] is a philosopher who supports political dissidents and freedom of speech for all.
By my calculation, Mathias has smeared 80 people just since the beginning of 2021. Undoubtedly, smearing 13 people a month is no easy job. But before detailing his professional career and a few of his targets, it’s worth reprising his life of Riley before he rose to become a key hitman for the radical Left and its Antifa terror auxiliary. (Note to Christopher: If I underestimated your victim count, please forgive me. Keeping track is no easy task!)
Mathias hails from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, which is not Appalachia. His father was a doctor, so he certainly lived comfortably enough. He graduated from Gettysburg Area High School in 2004 and from Emerson College (tuition, $51,264), a swanky Boston private school for rich kids, in 2008.
But Mathias uses his ties to his storied home town to smear those he doesn’t like—i.e. just about anyone who doesn’t swallow the Leftist narrative.
Responding to a tweet from the New York Times about “red tourism” in China, where the tourists dress in Red Army costumes and pledge allegiance to the Communist Party, Mathias tweeted this:
Lol you wanna talk about sanitized versions of history? let me tell you about my hometown, a lil place called Gettysburg, PA …
“Tourists,” dressed in replica grey Confederate costumes, sing Dixie and pledge their allegiance to the Lost Cause.
This is “civil war tourism in America, where people flock to historic sites to absorb a sanitized version of the country's history."
Anyway, when Mathias trundled off to Emerson—and left behind the benighted 34 percent of his high school chums considered poor—he joined the Emerson Anti-Authoritarians.
After that, he attended Columbia Journalism School (tuition, room and board $116,899). Must be nice! He graduated in 2015.
Mathias’ professional history, his LinkedIn profile shows, is unremarkable: internships here and there, some time at the New York Post and some work for leftist National Public Radio.
But a job that stands out is his time in 2010 writing for Nerve.com, the “premier online magazine dedicated to sex, dating and culture.”
What a shocker: A Leftist writes for magazine preoccupied with sex.
A tidbit from that fine piece of literature:
I love getting road head but don’t currently have a car and neither does she. Any advice for getting a b***job on another form of transportation?
The back of a bus allows for various levels of showing off, or see if you can borrow a friend’s car for an afternoon road trip (make sure you offer to fill the gas tank before dropping it off). Just steer clear of the back of your mom’s station wagon.
[Sex Advice From Magic the Gathering Players, April 16, 2010].
Maids and butlers are hired to keep things clean, but they consistently fill our minds with dirty thoughts. That’s the conundrum we faced when trying to choose only ten of cinema's sexiest maids and butlers. It was tough, but in the spirit of spring cleaning, we did all the messy work for you.
Somehow, it took three people to come up with that sparkling example of prose and “journalism.”
Then there was Sex Advice From Valedictorians [June 4, 2010]:
Mathias also crossposted the piece at HookSexUp.
And oddly, that’s where Mathias offers some family history, in an interview with his parents [Before You Were Born: Franciscan friar-bassist finds true love, June 14, 2010]. Mathias published the interview first at Nerve.com.
His parents Norbert Mathias and Eileen Mathias (formerly Norbert Dziengielewski and Eileen Dziengielewski) discuss the beginning of their life together, while Norbert was a Franciscan friar, a bassist, and studying at Georgetown University School of Medicine. The couple explain why and how they changed their name: Dziengielewski is tough to pronounce; Mathias, West Virginia, is a town they loved.
One wonders what Mathias’ parents think about their life story appearing at a porn website, and of their son’s association with sex-obsessed weirdos. After all, his father is a former Franciscan friar and prominent doctor.
But on to Norbert and Ellen’s big boy.
Mathias’s HuffPost byline has been featured on more than a thousand articles, his MuckRack profile reports, many of them crossposted to larger sites such as Yahoo, a transmission belt that spreads his poison well beyond HuffPost’s reach.
As a “reporter” covering the “far right, disinformation, and hate,” Mathias invents threats to keep himself employed.
But he doesn’t just attack high-profile figures who can muster the resources to defend themselves, such as Tucker Carlson, and Reps. Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene. He’s especially focused on ruining every-day, normal people.
Ruining the lives of teachers is a particular Mathias specialty. In 2019, he targeted a teacher of Japanese at a public magnet school in Texas with the usual results [Texas Teacher Put On Leave After Alleged Ties To White Nationalist Group Exposed, Huffington Post,April 5, 2019].
In 2018, Mathias and two accomplices forced the resignation of a middle school teacher in Florida [Exclusive: Florida Public School Teacher Has A White Nationalist Podcast, by Christopher Mathias, Jenna Amatulli, and Rebecca Klein, Huffington Post, March 3, 2018].
But teachers aren’t the only working-class professionals the sex-obsessed Mathias has targeted: He doesn’t like cops or military men with contrarian views either.
In the 1950s, smearing people for their political views was called “blacklisting.”
But anyway, at least Mathias cites his sources. His main source: Antifa. So we not only know where Mathias mines his ore, but also where to dig for more doxers. One source is “Angry White Men,” the blog for Twitter leftist Eyes on the Right and a favorite source for Antifa doxers.
Wrote Mathias in his piece about the teacher in Florida:
Earlier this week, the blog Angry White Men, which tracks white nationalism, wrote a post about how someone named [redacted] had interviewed the prominent white supremacist media figure Lana Lokteff on this week’s episode of “Unapologetic.” Lokteff works for the media outfit Red Ice TV, which the Southern Poverty Law Center recently designated as a hate group.
Mathias explicitly stipulated that his information about the teacher in Texas came from Eugene Antifa:
Earlier Thursday, anonymous anti-fascist activists from an Oregon-based group called Eugene Antifa posted an article alleging that [redacted] is a member of the white nationalist group Identity Evropa.
Upshot: Mathias isn’t really a journalist. He’s a smear merchant and Antifa propagandist. Did I mention that he’s something of a sex pervert?
Anyway, and amusingly enough, Mathias affects to scoff at the claim that he’s an Antifa sympathizer.
sheriff of Spokane County didn't care for a recent story I wrote about his office’s arrest of a protester so yesterday he did 45-minute press conference about it.
at one point he displayed a tweet from a random Twitter troll as evidence that I might have some antifa sympathies
MEMORANDUM FOR CHRISTOPHER MATHIAS: You ARE an Antifa sympathizer. Forget about the “Twitter troll.” Your stories, sources, and your public commentary prove it.
Eoin Lenihan, a Stuttgart-based analyst whose work is focused on online extremism, recently outlined the relationship between journalists and Antifa and discussed Mathias’ modus operandi at length:
Christopher Mathias, a senior reporter for the Huffington Post, applies the same cynical approach. Like [the Guardian’s Jason] Wilson, Mathias’ byline seems to pop up whenever Antifa stages violent protests—and he always can be counted on to deliver a play-by-play that favors Antifa. But he goes even further than his Guardian counterpart. Unlike Wilson, Mathias actually doxes individuals whom he suspects of being right-wing extremists. His doxing sources for an article about suspected extremists in the U.S. military included Unicorn Riot, an anarchic Antifa journalist collective, and other shady sites that exist as a sort of in-house 4chan for the Antifa movement. (Mathias cited similar sources when he published identifying details of a Texas schoolteacher, and of a Virginia police officer.)
Mathias’ apparent modus operandi is to gather doxes of individuals whom Antifa or Antifa-friendly groups suspect of being right-wing extremists. He (or a colleague) at Huffington Post then reach out to the target’s employer asking for comment, leveraging the media outlet’s name to ensure the individual is called out. Then Mathias posts the doxes in his column while investigations are ongoing. As with [activist] Emily Gorcenski’s First Vigil site, Mathias broadcasts detailed personal information whose release seems designed to destroy the reputation of the accused, no matter the results of any subsequent investigation. It’s unclear how this behavior differs from ordinary, everyday Antifa-style online activism.
Of course, “journalists” were furious. Panicked that the jig was up, the formerly prestigious Columbia Journalism Review—”the voice of journalism”—published a counterattack from Antifa propagandist and doxer Jared Holt [Right-wing publications launder an anti-journalist smear campaign, June 12, 2019].
Tempting as it is, let’s not return to Holt but instead stay with Comrade Mathias. He has used Antifa Seven Hills for his reports [Cop Suspended After Anti-Fascists Expose His Affinity For White Nationalist Group, February 6, 2019], and in May 2021, warmly discussed his career with the “Yeah Nah Pasaran” radio show, which claims it is dedicated to “[e]xamining, through an anti-fascist lens, ethno-nationalism, white supremacy and neo-fascism in so-called Australia, Aotearoa & around the world.”
Mathias discussed Unicorn Riot as a source and his collaboration with “anti-fascist researchers” for one of his stories, which led to half the targets being kicked out of the military.
“Extremists are attracted to the military for a lot of reasons,” he said. “One of which is to get, you know, combat training that they can then use for…maybe to inflict on civilian targets.”
But don’t you dare say anything about the Antifa activists who are fighting in Syria and have been investigated by the Department of Homeland Security for their ties to terrorism.
Mathias also lamented that Democrats aren’t cheerleading enough for Antifa and Black Lives Matter:
I don’t have a lot of faith in the Democratic Party to really confront the far-right here, especially when they really keep throwing the more radical left here under the bus, which, even though it’s the radical left that kind of makes sh*t happen on the front lines.
That, apparently, is what “radicalized” Mathias.
Mathias later joked that President Biden was an Antifa “black bloc” goon, then added that “we’ve got secret Antifa infiltrators all over congress now.”
“We,” of course, can only means that Mathias views himself as an Antifa member.
Antifa propaganda is an institutional disease at HuffPost, by the way: Senior Editor Andy Campbell also regurgitates stories from Antifa activists at Unicorn Riot.
Campbell even did an explainer video, “What is Antifa?”
Does Antifa throw a brick or two through a window? Sure. Do they declare that they're willing to use violence if that means thwarting a white supremacist threat? Absolutely. Have we seen instances, or a coordinated effort to harm other Americans? Absolutely not. There’s just no evidence.

“No evidence?” What about all those who lost jobs thanks to Mathias and Campbell?
How much does Mathias believe in Antifa’s cause? When Antifa goons threatened to beat him up for covering a typically violent Antifa riot, he blamed the “alt-right.”
Another woman said she would use her gun on me. She just walked by and told “one day, motherf***er” you’re gonna get it.” ...
Still, from the sounds of it, it was alt-right that instigated everything.”
Maybe the Antifa woman didn’t know Mathias was an ally.
And it’s significant that, more recently Mathias was arrested for “no reason” while covering a Black Lives Matter riot in New York City [HuffPost Reporter Chris Mathias Arrested While Peacefully Covering NYC Anti-Racism Protest, by Paige Lavender and Jenna Amatulli, HuffPost, May 31, 2020]. Judge for yourself whether cops arrested the “journalist” for “no reason.”
The truth about Mathias is this: He channels Antifa propaganda into the Mainstream Media in order to smear innocent Americans who hold views he doesn’t like. Their employers than use the suspect material to ruin people financially and professionally.
We know it. He knows it. And he knows we know it.
The First Amendment protects Mathias’ hit pieces; they’re on the internet forever. They will never be expunged. That makes him in some ways even more dangerous than the thugs who riot.
We can see them; police can stop them.
We can’t stop Mathias. But we can fight fire with fire, and dox him and his associates the way he doxes others.
Finally, a question for Mathias’ parents: Do you care that your son published your life story at a website that publishes porn?
If not, no wonder your boy turned out the way he did.
If so, maybe you three need to have a talk.
