Jeremy Jeffery Riesberg is the head of the Colorado chapter of the hate group American Identity Movement (AmIM, formerly known as Identity Evropa). Under the aliases “Felden”, “Jackson”, and “Andrew Jackson”, Jeremy advocates for national socialism, illegally posts white supremacist propaganda, and coordinates a network of racists in from his home in Colorado Springs. Ironically, Jeremy is married to a black woman who gave birth to their interracial child.
Yesterday we released info about CSU Admissions worker Rob Adams, one of the moderator’s of David Huntwork‘s MAGA Trump – Colorado Facebook group. We released our article on Rob following the receipt of a ridiculous attempt at strong-arming from members of this “patriot group,” who threatened to visit an activist who has nothing to do with our collective at his home.
“Oh, you guys just call everyone a Nazi! You just call all the people you don’t like Nazis!”
We get that a lot. Despite what people may think, we try to be careful with who we deem a “Nazi.”
Cory Allen Reeves is a Master Sergeant with the US Air Force of the 50th Space Wing at Schriever Air Force Base, located in Colorado Springs, Colorado where he also currently owns a home. Cory Reeves has been with the military since at least 2005, has been a member of Identity Evropa since at least October of 2017, and served as the Colorado state coordinator of Identity Evropa. Reeves was a “patron” member of Identity Evropa which meant he paid a monthly higher amount of dues than required. This extra monthly financial contribution to the white supremacist organization gave Reeves access to special communications and meetings reserved for patrons, leadership, and the advisory council. Reeves regularly posted white supremacist propaganda throughout Colorado, encouraged members to donate to the group beyond their $10 monthly dues in his role as “patron’s liaison,” and coordinated actions, events, and meet ups locally and nationally.
So, after the initial round of intense “let’s get these fuckers” scrutiny, it is nice to sit back and just see what the fuck these dudes talk about. It’s interesting (is that the word?) to analyze their conversations from a sociological or anthropological, even, perspective. We’ll try to avoid horseshoe theory, but the far-left and the far-right have some common ground.
If you’ve ever listened to Identity Evropa’s podcast (which we don’t recommend) you very quickly get the impression that Identity Evropa is a very image-conscious organization. Their national president, Patrick Casey, is quick to denounce “extremists” and brag about how Identity Evropa is full of “well-adjusted” people. It’s a great place for people who want to do racism without the usual trappings of the far-right. That was really the whole point of the group from the start. Nathan D’Amigo, the dishonorably discharged former Marine who will be remembered, if at all, for robbing a cab driver and punching a woman, thought up the group as a way to milk money out of wealthy racists who were leery of clowns like Matt Heimbach of TWP or Jeff Schoep of NSM. Casey, and his podcast, seem to be continuing that business model.
The most active and visible white supremacist group here in Colorado this year has been Identity Evropa. Their stickers and posters have appeared across the Front Range, in Colleges and Universities like UC-Boulder and UCCS here in Colorado Springs. They’ve done pop-up demonstrations, like the one last month at Civic Center Park in Denver.
