Kirk Widlund is a Neo-Nazi and the host of the Keeping America Great podcast, as well as Executive Producer for the Steffan Tubbs Show, The American Veteran’s Show, The Craig Silverman Show, and Bird Talk, on the Denver conservative talk radio station 710 KNUS, owned by Salem Media. Kirk lives with his parents in Aurora and is a registered Republican.
Additional information about Kirk Widlund can be found here.
Kirk fronts as a typical MAGA chud on air and on his publicly facing social media – he stans for Donald Trump, stands with ICE, condemns Black Lives Matter, all the typical conservative stuff.
Kirk’s posts take a slight turn to the right on the Russian social media website VK, which is a hotbed for Neo-Nazis as they don’t enforce hate speech violations.
Kirk’s position that the US was on the wrong side of WWII will surely please his listeners on The American Veteran’s Show.
Kirk’s love of Hitler went so far that he went out of his way to make the URL to his account “AdolphPhan”
We found Kirk when combing through Lone Tree Neo-Nazi Lucas Martin’s VK account. Great OpSec, boys.
Lucas Martin and Kirk Widlund worked at King Soopers together, then both attended Colorado Media School. While at CMS, Kirk interned at 850 KOA for The Mike Rosen Show, he then went on to work at 710 KNUS.
Lucas Martin expounds on his friendship with Kirk Widlund in the comments section of a Neo-Nazi terrorist organization logo.

Here is Kirk with Craig Silverman, the 710 KNUS host who was recently ousted from the station for criticizing Trump.

Kirk is also regularly featured as a guest commentator on 710 KNUS shows like The Randy Corporon Show and Backbone Radio with Matt Dunn.

The Steffan Tubbs Show has featured a number of white nationalist allies lately, including 2nd Degree Colorado Proud Boy Louie Huey, and Nick Fuentes stan Michelle Malkin

Louie Huey and his Colorado Proud Boys regularly attend protests with white nationalists and Neo-Nazis. Here’s Louie giving a fist bump to Neo-Nazi Steve Hildebran at an anti-LGBT protest outside of Mile High Comics.
Care to comment on this clip of you giving a pound to neo-nazi Steve Hildebran while he was wearing a Nazi SS Totenkopf on his shirt at a rally advertised with swastikas? pic.twitter.com/cj5ONds0wK

The Colorado Proud Boys don’t hide their alliance with Neo-Nazis either. Here is Antonio “Enki” Balderas, vetting officer for the Colorado Proud Boys, marching shoulder to shoulder with members of the former Traditionalist Workers Party, calling them “our friends”
"Our friends from TWP." Last Sunday, #ProudBoys marched with neo-Nazi groups in #Denver against a queer + trans youth event to benefit scholarship fund, claiming,"Children [are] stripping for money, for pedophiles." Community groups mobilized against them. https://t.co/XjLcvY8Eo9 pic.twitter.com/Ho2k31Nz7J

This reporting lead to Colorado Proud Boy Joshua Michael Gillipsie threatening News9 Reporter Jeremy Jojola and his family.
The Proud Boys are angry I put them in my story about Hate. They knew what was coming. I was upfront with them. And this is how they respond. pic.twitter.com/CsMRpYAlyN

The first part of this series that covered James Mason, whose work has inspired numerous murders, rubbed Kirk Widlund the wrong way.
???????? Do not miss @michellemalkin as we recap Saturday's #StandWithICE rally – she joins @SWTubbs at 5pMT @710KNUS. Also, @reallouiehuey & @randycorporon.

Steffan Tubbs is also very fond of Michelle Malkin, who hosted a pro-ICE rally outside of the Aurora ICE concentration camp run by GEO. Michelle Malkin was recently fired by Young America’s Foundation for vocally supporting the Holocaust denying white supremacist Nick Fuentes.
A Good Nazi is a Banned Nazi
Kirk hides his “power level” pretty well, but we’re not the first to notice something fashy about him. All of Kirk’s Twitter accounts are banned, even the one for his podcast on 710 KNUS, which might have something to do with him allegedly laughing about the white supremacist terrorist who shot up the Gilroy Garlic Festival.
@710KNUS – Hello. One of your personalities ("Smirkin' Kirk Widlund", @KirkKNUS), expressed great amusement at the news that three people (two of them children) were murdered at the Gilroy Garlic festival for racial reasons.
Is this the sort of person KNUS wants on its staff?

Color Us Shocked…
How could it be that a radio station whose hosts vocally support ICE Concentration Camps, the anti-democratic Republican Party and hate groups like the Proud Boys would provide a safe space for a Hitler loving Neo-Nazi? The contemporary mainstream right is only a few notches away from full on 1488 white nationalism. As the openly white supremacist right demands the Neo-Cons and Tea Partyers to bend the knee, we are going to be seeing a lot more of this.
Kirk Widlund has been fired from 710 KNUS.
Steffan Tubbs has responded to our reporting, and has alleged, without evidence, that we forged Kirk Widlund’s entire VK profile that goes back 2 years to when he opened the account. You can download a full archive of Kirk’s VK timeline here.
Watch your allegations, fool.
There is an internal investigation going on and so far has found no truth to your fake, doctored documents. You're sick and well aware of what you're doing. A libel suit may be in your future. We know who you are. RT that. https://t.co/NC2zT64gS6
— Steffan Tubbs ???????????? (@SWTubbs) December 9, 2019
Steffan Tubbs is refusing to provide evidence that our research was forged, and is instead making non-committal threats of a lawsuit.
You are a joke. Perhaps see you in court?
— Steffan Tubbs ???????????? (@SWTubbs) December 9, 2019
Since being exposed, Kirk has changed the URL on his VK account and then deleted it.
Steffan Tubbs said Kirk was out of the studio today “on assignment”. Someone seems to have tried to ask Steffan about his Neo-Nazi executive producer, but the call was disconnect as soon as it was mentioned. No more calls were taken for the rest of the show.
