Let all persons having any manner of business before this
venerable podcast gather ye forth and giveth your attention!
Closing in on the end of 2021 and their hundredth episode, Daniel
and Jack talk about the Sines vs. Kessler trial (the civil trial of
the Unite the Right organisers etc), the way in which the far-right
(including the defendants) have conceptualised it, the long-awaited
aftermath in the wake of the verdict (which dropped just before
Thanksgiving), and the reactions and attitudes to the whole thing
among the far-right, including lots of inexplicably buoyant

Sines v. Kessler
Unite The Right On Trial in Charlottesville
Former Identity Evropa Organizer Tells Secrets In Trial
Bottom of the Barrel: Charlottesville Trial Defense Attorneys
- Joshua Smith, one of the attorneys, is representing Matthew
Heimbach, Matthew Parrott, and the Traditionalist Worker Party, a
neo-nazi group that helped put on Unite the Right in 2017. Calling
in remotely to cross-examine a witness on November 11, Smith went
on a meandering digression about so-called ‘ethnostates’. He
claimed that expert witness and sociologist, Peter Simi, was
‘anti-white’ because he wouldn’t address Smith’s view that China
and Singapore are ‘ethnostates’, and falsely said that white people
are responsible for most advances in civilization and
- When trying to confuse jurors about sociological concepts like
in-groups and out-groups, Smith asked Simi if Hillary Clinton was
white supremacist, and soon after he told Judge Norman Moon that
cross-examinations can be “conversations” with witnesses, before
sheepishly admitting his scattered tangents were “trying to keep it
lively for everybody.”
- Another attorney in the Charlottesville lawsuit trial,
Cincinnati-based, James E. Kolenich, is an antisemitic far-right
Kolenich told the Cincinnati Enquirer in 2018 that his motives
in this case were simple: “My willingness to get involved is to
oppose Jewish influence in society.” He questioned the accuracy of
long-accepted scholarship about the death toll of the Holocaust:
“You can’t call the Jew Holocaust into question, right? […]
Christians really shouldn’t fall for that. The Holocaust is the
execution, the crucifixion of Christ. The most important event in
human history is His Resurrection, not, this Jewish Holocaust even
if it did happen.”
- Kolenich is part of a Catholic splinter tendency that rejects
20th century reforms barring antisemitic theology, telling the
Cincannati Enquirer, “The last such council [to modify the Catholic
faith] was Vatican II or as we call it, Vatican Jew.” He believes
all popes since Vatican II are illegitimate “anti-popes.”
