Violent Racist 2x Federal Convict Chester Doles & GA Banana Republican Kelly Loeffler Visit

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, December 14, 2020

Georgia’s appointed U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler is seen here with notorious racist bigot Chester Doles, a self-described 4th generation Ku Klux Klansman white Supremacist. Loeffler is THE single wealthiest Member of Congress with an estimated individual net worth of $500 million aside from her husband Jeffrey Sprecher, Founder, CEO, and President of InterContinental Exchange, a firm which literally owns the New York Stock Exchange, and other exchanges. Together they are worth an estimated $1 billion. Her spokesman claims to have not known about Doles’ presence at her rally, yet QAnon conspiracy theorist and Banana Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene in September had kicked Doles out of one of her rallies. This image was posted by Doles on VK, a Russian social media website.

You know the saying.

“Shit draws flies.”

It’ll be up to you to decide which is which.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote this, in part, about their cordial visit:

“The photo shows the Republican smiling from beneath an American flag ball cap next to Chester Doles, a longtime white supremacist who spent decades in the Ku Klux Klan and the neo-Nazi National Alliance. He was sentenced to prison for the 1993 beating of a Black man in Maryland and again on weapons violations in Georgia. He also associated with the Hammerskins, a racist skinhead gang with whom he marched in 2017′s violent United the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.”

The “Hammerskin Nation” members, as they prefer to call themselves, are called one of “the best organized, most widely dispersed and most dangerous Skinhead group known” by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s anti-bigotry Intelligence Report, which “provides comprehensive updates to law enforcement agencies, the media and the general public” on the radical right in the United States. His March 2003 arrest by Federal authorities was for violating Federal law barring convicted felons from possessing firearms.

The Washington Post wrote this in part, about Doles and Loeffler’s friendly tête-à-tête:

“Smiling and sporting a dark green cap with an American flag, Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) posed side by side with a former Ku Klux Klan leader at a Friday campaign event in Dawsonville, Ga.

“But after the viral photo with Chester Doles drew intense criticism amid a crucial Senate runoff campaign, the senator is distancing herself from any association with the longtime white supremacist. A campaign spokesman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Sunday that Loeffler was unaware she was posing with a man who spent decades in the KKK and the neo-Nazi National Alliance.

““Kelly had no idea who that was, and if she had she would have kicked him out immediately because we condemn in the most vociferous terms everything that he stands for,” wrote Stephen Lawson, Loeffler’s campaign spokesman, to the Journal-Constitution in a statement Sunday.””[Sunday, 13 December 2020]

But here’s the contradictory part to Loeffler’s story: Even the freakazoid newly elected QAnon conspiracy theorist Banana Republican Congress critter Marjorie Taylor Greene threw him out of one of her rallies in Ringgold, Georgia, Saturday,

One should seriously ponder why it is that a low-level weirdo like Banana Republican QAnon conspiracy theorist like Marjorie Taylor Greene would have on-the-ball-staff, while the multimillionairess Loeffler whose net worth is $500 Million at minimum, would not. It just doesn’t make sense.

Another thing that makes no sense is why anyone with at least half an ounce of common sense would know that Loeffler does NOT normally dress like that – trucker cap, checkerboard shirt, boots, jeans, etc. – when she’s relaxing. And yet, she hasn’t figured out that simply wearing the clothes of a “commoner” do not make her one, any more than wearing a welder’s mask and gloves makes her a welder. Folks who are fooled by such low-level attempts at deception are to be pitied. Why, even that blue-and-white checkerboard shirt probably cost well over $500.

Any woman worth a minimum of $500 million like she is, wear garments made by the likes of haute couture houses of Fendi, Prada, Gucci, Chanel, Armani, Vitton, Balenciaga, Dior, Ferragamo, Saint Laurent, Givenchy, et al. They do NOT wear “off the rack” pedestrian attire, and she sure as hell wouldn’t be caught dead in a Wal-Mart, or Target, while Dollar General, and Dollar Tree are utterly and absolutely verboten. It is anathema to her to even be seen near such garbage. She undoubtedly holds her nose while campaigning with Georgia Senator David Perdue, who was formerly Dollar General CEO from 2003 to 2007 of the Goodlettsville, TN based business.

A little-known fact about Perdue, who is campaigning against Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff:
When Perdue was Dollar General’s CEO, he was significantly responsible for driving manufacture of most of their merchandise out of America, to Chinese factories. In a 2004 conference call with investors, he said in part that, “We have opened a sourcing office in Hong Kong, and I can tell you we have had a dramatic impact on our business by having direct contact with our manufacturers.” Of course, Perdue wasn’t satisfied with that, and as Senator, he wrote a letter to Trump dated February 6, 2020 to request an increase the H-2B visa program, which allows for cheap imported labor to replace American workers, and wrote in part that, “…I am requesting that you exercise your discretion to increase the H-2B cap to the maximum extent as allowed by law…”

In a 2017 interview at Dollar General’s Goodlettsville, TN headquarters, their present CEO Todd J. Vasos, said in part that a bad economy was good for their business by saying, “The economy is continuing to create more of our core customer,” noting that their average customer, “doesn’t look at her pantry or her refrigerator and say, ‘You know, I’m going to be out of ketchup in the next few days. I’m going to order a few bottles.’ The core customer uses the last bit of ketchup at the table the night prior, and either on her way to work, or on her way home, picks up one bottle.”

About Chester Doles:

Doles was sentenced to 7 years in Federal prison for the 1993 beating of a Black male motorist who was riding with a White woman in Maryland. He served nearly 4.

Doles was arrested again on March 7, 2003 by Federal authorities for being a felon in possession of firearms – a violation of Federal law – at his home in Georgia, and found 13 guns, rifles, shotguns and pistols.

Doles has a decades-long history of association with, and membership in far-right-wing extremist racist, White Supremacist groups – though he recently claims to have put those associations behind him by saying, “Everybody’s got a past. It is what it is.”

His White Supremacist associations included membership in the Ku Klux Klan and the neo-Nazi group National Alliance. And in 2017, he marched with the Hammerskins, a racist biker gang, in the violent “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where 1 death, and 19 injuries were reported, 5 of them critical.

Doles responded to a message from the Associated Press and told them on Sunday, December 13, 2020 that he had “publicly renounced racism on several occasions in the past couple of years,” and that he participated in a “redemption service,” standing “in front of an all-Black congregation and told my story and renounced all racism and asked for God’s forgiveness.”

Doles also recently founded the “American Patriots USA” (APUSA) group in north Georgia last year, after a September far-Right rally in Dahlonega, Georgia, in an effort to appeal to more “mainstream” conservatives in the area. Since he founded American Patriots USA, Doles claims that he has ceased association and ties with white supremacists, but there is little, if any, evidence to support his claim.

Facebook and other U.S.-based social media platforms such as Twitter, have banned Doles for his association with far-right extremist, racist and White Supremacist groups. In response, Doles has turned to VK, a Russian social media platform to which American white nationalists have turned after being banned by American social media.

Several authors have written about Doles in first-hand accounts, some undercover, others openly.

Daryl Davis, a Black musician, interviewed Doles and several KKK leaders for his 1997 book “Klan-Destine Relationships: A Black Man’s Odyssey in the Ku Klux Klan,” and said Doles still sends him Christmas cards. He said that, “Chester is a really smart guy. He’s a very loyal individual. Unfortunately, he uses his intelligence and loyalty for causes I’d not rate high on my list. I think Chester would get further bringing people together.” Davis said Doles is a highly effective leader who mixes charisma with attention to detail, and that the group Doles belonged to then “is probably more dangerous” than he was with the Klan, noting that “the National Alliance (a White Supremacist group which existed primarily from 1974-2013) is more paramilitary, more organized.” Since that time, Doles has changed his appearance to be more accepted by a broader spectrum of conservatives. When his name was mentioned, people knew him as a “barrel-chested, long-haired, camouflage-wearing ruffian with a swastika tattooed on his hand.” Though he still has tattoos, he is now clean-shaven, and bald-headed, as seen in the picture he made with Kelly Loeffler.

In 2011, Vegas Tenold, a Norwegian journalist, who was an investigative researcher for the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, had infiltrated neo-Nazi, KKK, White Supemacist groups, and remained undercover for 6 years while conducting research upon the far-right organizations. He said of Doles’ claim to have changed, repented, or having experienced a so-called “Road to Damascus” moment is very slim, and stated that, “He’s been not only in the Hammerskins, but a leader in National Alliance as well. So, he’s been a leader in two of the most hard-core white supremacists groups, not only in America, but the world. It just seems like a big change.”

The APUSA rally’s organizer and leader, Chester Doles, has a long history over several decades in various aspects of, and groups promoting the white supremacist movement. Historically Doles led a Ku Klux Klan group, operated the Georgia unit of the neo-Nazi “National Alliance,” and more recently supported the violent Hammerskins racist gang. Other white nationalists are also involved with APUSA, and Doles has boasted that there is no “Jew loving [… in] this Crew.” The organization has also built tactical alliances with some far-Right people of color.
