Anti-fascist activists from Rose City Antifa, Pacific Northwest Anti-Fascist Workers Collective, and Eugene Antifa have been able to get access to the logs of a Discord server used by a variety of Pacific Northwest fascists and white supremacists, given the tongue-in-cheek name, the Cascadian Coffee Company (CCC). Discord is a chat app, originally developed for online gaming, but often used by the far-right and white supremacists groups to organize their groups and events. These logs contain thousands of messages detailing activities, organizing, and interactions of one particular bunch in the region. In an ongoing series of articles, the coordinating anti-fascist groups will publish revealing information about this particular set of Nazis organizing throughout the Pacific Northwest region, located from Ashland to Seattle. You can follow all of these stories by visiting our website at rosecityantifa.org, or following us on Twitter @rosecityantifa and using the hashtag #PNWfascistlogs and #CCC.
The group of fascists on the CCC server, which we are referring to as the Oregon Aryans, includes a number of younger members. Here we will profile two of them: Ian Lawton and Austin Wilkison.
Ian Lawton lives in Roseberg, Oregon. He is twenty years old, and attends Umpqua Community College, having graduated from Roseberg High School in 2015.
Lawton posts nazi memes on his Facebook.
On defunct nazi website Iron March, Lawton posts an introductory message identifying himself as a national socialist, and believer in esoteric hitlerism.
Lawton (posting on the Discord as Artair) has low self-esteem and bad health, and blames these problems on his vegetarian upbringing, despite the fact there are millions of people raised in a vegetarian lifestyle who are perfectly healthy.
Lawton, who lives with his parents, claims that he will be grounded if ever seen participating in a fascist action in public.
On the Discord, Lawton posts a meme of children representative of diversity being shot down by a nazi firing squad.
Austin Wilkison lives in Eugene, Oregon. He is also twenty years old. He graduated from Glide High School in 2016.
Austin Wilkison poses for a photo with esoteric hitlerist writer, Jason A Thompkins. In the comments, others respond by typing “sieg heil!”
Wilkison, posting as “Fluxis” on the Discord, published a mashup of a nazi eagle with the fascist Cascadian flag.
Wilkison responds approvingly to Jimmy Marr’s anti-semitic banner ideas.
On the Discord, Wilkison suggests destroying the Old Testament of the Bible, on anti-semitic grounds.
