Yesterday some interesting news broke from Sunny South Dallas AFA. It turns out that they had identified one of the “counter-protesters,” who have been out recently harassing peaceful residents exercising their first amendment rights. While, his name is still unknown, there is both video and photographic evidence of him also being one of the participants in the 2017 Charlottesville Unite the Right neo-Nazi rally.
The reason that this caught our eye is we have also been covering the Weatherford situation.
We already knew another white supremacist was arrested in Weatherford after the July 25 incident when local Weatherford residents were met in the town square with a large mob of white people who shouted racial slurs with them and became physically violent. The entire violent and intense encounter was caught on video and many of us in North Texas watched in horror.
On August 18 “John” showed up.
Besides “John’s” sickening dialogue, he made it clear that he was a neo-Nazi and a badge he wears proudly. Turns out, this wasn’t the first time “John” was caught on film telling the world how racist he is…
Here he is below at the Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville in 2017. That’s “John” all the way on the right where the arrow is pointing:
Charlottesville, you remember that one, right? That was the 2017 protest when Donald Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people” after a white supremacist murdered Heather Heyer, and that tiki torch moment. You know, the moment they marched with tiki torches they got at the local five and dime and chanted, “Jews will not replace us.”
How could we forget?
The man in that picture with the arrow pointed at him: That’s John, or at least that’s the man caught on video recently here in Weatherford, who said his name was John.
Who’s the guy that’s circled here?
That’s Robert Ray, a native of North Texas and a wanted fugitive from the 2017 Unite the Right neo-Nazi rally.
The funny thing is that along with being a native of North Texas, his charges came right along with his bodyguard’s charges, Will Smith.
No, not that Will Smith.
This Will Smith:
Robert Ray is still off of the grid, but Will Smith is living comfortably here in North Texas.
The funny thing is, just over a week ago Will Smith never disappeared. In fact, he’s living in Nocona, Texas right now under an open profile with the name Wil Atteberry.
If Nocona rings a bell at all, it is because that the leader and organizer of the “counter-protest” which we saw in Gainesville on July 1, was also from Nocona. You guys remember JP McWilliams, right?
JP McWilliams went online and made a video telling the world that he knew BLM was coming out to Gainesville to tear down their Confederate statue. And that even though they called themselves something else, he knew they were BLM, because he did all of this research (likely on OAN forums), that told him that BLM went by 187 different names.
But he lied.
In fact, the only people who planned on showing up to that statue was local progressive Gainesville residents, PRO Gainesville.
Like Weatherford, they were met by swarms of angry white men in body armor and long arms itching to engage the mostly Black and brown Cooke County residents.
Aggressors at Recent Texas Protests are Fugitives Tied to 2017 Charlottesville Neo-Nazi Rally
Here’s Will Smith (aka “Wil Atteberry), Robert Ray (aka “Azzmador”), and “John” from Weatherford all together at the 2017 Unite the Right neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, VA:
It isn’t just a coincidence that “Wil Atteberry” and JP McWilliams from Nocona are Facebook friends. Local activists have verified that JP McWilliams is friends with many people in the Atteberry family.
If “Wil Atteberry” has felony warrants for his role in the same protest which one of his brethren killed Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, why hasn’t he been arrested yet?
That question has been asked.
And as of last week, recently elected District Attorney, Jim Hengeley said he would be looking into it.
Local residents in Weatherford and Gainesville deserve better.
The constitution of the United States of America grants each one of us the right to peacefully gather and protest on the issues we believe in.
However in both Cooke and Parker county local Black and brown residents, along with their allies, have been met with a level of hate and vitriol that most have us have never seen.
This should be a wake up call to North Texas law enforcement officials.
There are bad actors out there who proved who they were in Charlottesville in 2017. Now they are repeating their actions in these small North Texas towns.
The era of white supremacy must come to an end. The first amendment applies to all Americans. And all American citizens deserve equal rights under the Constitution of the United States of America, no matter what their beliefs or the color of their skin.
