United States prepares to target dissenting Americans in Culture War
Marxist networks are fomenting the end game for nationalists and Christians
By Casey Whalen
The Hegelian Dialectic: problem, reaction, solution or thesis, anti-thesis and synthesis. A method employed to achieve a desired goal or outcome. This process IS unfolding in North Idaho regarding the following story.
May 19, 2022 the Coeur d’Alene Press reported in an article entitled: Human rights groups call for action to address domestic terrorism
The article courtesy of the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Rights. Bonner County Human Rights Task Force, Boundary County Human Rights Task Force, and the Spokane Human Rights Task Force implored:
‘for immediate action by the federal government the states for passage of strong domestic terrorist control acts to combat the epidemic of mass shootings in the United States taking the lives and injuring so many innocent individuals.’
The article also went on to say:
‘We applaud the past actions of the federal government’s enactment of laws from 1968 to 2022 to protect individuals and groups from violence based on race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, American/Pacific Islanders and the Emmett Till Anti Lynching Federal Act of 2022.’
Furthermore citing the National Security Countering Domestic Terrorism Plan 2021 and urging states to enact domestic terrorist control acts and specifically mentioning Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s Hate Crimes Advisory Working Group.
On June 11, 2022 the North Idaho Pride Alliance hosted a drag queen dance party at the Coeur d’Alene City Park which attracted condemnation due to children viewing, in what many would consider depraved sexual acts which were highly inappropriate.
And lets not forget…

Three weeks after the press article Human rights groups call for action to address domestic terrorism, Patriot Front was arrested mere blocks from the downtown locale event on charges of Idaho Law: Conspiracy to riot.
Shortly after the arrest, human rights organizations in North Idaho promoted a campaign called North Idaho Rejects Hate. Capitalizing on the fanfare over the mass arrest on June 11, 2022.
Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations website
Later that year, November 17, 2022, a venue hosted by the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations, US Attorney District of Idaho, FBI and Department of Justice (DoJ) at the Coeur d’Alene Casino entitled United Against Hate..
The purpose was to inform the public what hate incidences and hate crimes are and ways to report occurrences of perceived bias against any group or individual based on color or religion.
Department of Justice Traci Whelan & FBI’s Brynn Gunnerson, local agents in Coeur d’Alene explained that while there is no crime against hatred, the public should report incidents of hate.
The US District Attorney of Idaho informed me in an email that I was not permitted to film the event… I did anyway.

The CDA Press did not get this message.
CDA Press article November 18, 2022
FBI Agent Gunnerson is also part of the Human Rights Education Institute’s, Human Rights Consortium Steering Committee which consists of local business entities, city officials and law enforcement.
Members include: Coeur d’Alene Police, Idaho State Police, FBI and Kootenai County Sheriff as well as Coeur d’Alene Tribe, Kootenai Health, Hagadone Corporation (CDAPRESS), Heritage Health, University of Idaho and the North Idaho Pride Alliance who hosted Pride in the Park, CDA City Council Members and more.
Freedom of Information Act exposes HR Consortium Steering Committee
To find out more about this process I contacted Traci Whelan to report a hate incident against former Supreme Court Justice Jim Jones over a hate filled op-ed targeting white nationalists and Christians in a piece called: Idaho must once again send the hate mongers packing.
My call was returned by… FBI Agent Brynn Gunnerson member of the Human Rights Consortium Steering Committee.
While reporting this ‘hate incident’ I asked Mr. Gunnerson directly, “what is white nationalism?” His reply will shock you.
Starting to get the picture???
Core players in the community are using situations such as the Patriot Front arrest to shape and force society into a police state targeting any who oppose the Marxist agenda and marginalize them as Nazi’s, fascists or undemocratic.
In 2020 I created an event with the help of likeminded people featuring speakers such as: Joey Gibson, Ammon Bundy, former Washington State Rep. Matt Shea, Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center and many others during COVID at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds attempting to encourage others to fight back against mandates and government authoritarian control. Over three thousand attended this free event.
Enter Kristofer Goldsmith MSNBC dis-info agent, registered Democrat and President of a newly formed organization called the Task Force Butler Institute (TFB) named after General Smedley Butler.
Records show Goldsmith owns property with Lauren Katzenberg writer for The New York Times.
Goldsmith a former Army combat Veteran served in Iraq at 19 years old. He was assigned the task of photographing corpses and documenting mass graves. He developed severe PTSD and in 2007, as the result of a suicide attempt that caused him to miss redeployment, was given a less-than-honorable discharge.
Goldsmith would go on to create companies: High Ground Vets, Sparverius and then Task Force Butler in 2022.
On November 13, 2019 Goldsmith spoke before the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs and gave testimony in a report entitled Hijacking our Heroes: Exploiting Veterans through Disinformation on Social Media.
Goldsmith publicly states he believes the word patriot and anti-fascist should be synonymous. In fact, the words patriot, anti-fascist, democracy and
veterans appears many times in his tweets and other writings. This looks to be a case of attempting to fold in veterans to the anti-fascist movement, tongue and cheek.
The Task Force Butler team has produced three reports so far: Project Dragoon which analyzes The Impact of Online Hate Mongering – An Exploratory Analysis of Libs of TikTok
Project Husky: The Case for Holding Legally Accountable the Neo-Nazi, Terrorist, Racketeering Gang “Nationalist Social Club – Anti-Communist Action,” more commonly known as “NSC-131,” for Conspiracies to Commit Violent Hate Crimes Against the People of Boston, Jamaica Plain, and Cambridge, Massachusetts; Providence, Rhode Island; Manchester, New Hampshire; and Portland, Maine.
And Project Blacklisted a 320 page document provided to local and federal district attorneys, states’ attorneys general, and other legal accountability practitioners that is intended to form the basis for civil and criminal legal action against the neo-nazi, terrorist, racketeering gang known as Patriot Front.
Project Blacklisted focuses on three main incidents:
- The July 3, 2021 racist assault of an unarmed Black man by multiple members of the Patriot Front gang while the group marched through Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
- The June 11, 2022 arrest of 31 Patriot Front gang members on their way to harass, intimidate, and assault members of the LGBTQIA+ community during a planned Pride Month event in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
- The July 2, 2022 racist assault of an unarmed Black man by multiple members of the Patriot Front gang while the group marched through Boston, Massachusetts.
The report was initially made available on September 20, 2022 over three months after the arrest of Patriot Front. Selectively shopped to Attorney General’s and prosecutors across the nation.
Another major player is Director Mary McCord of the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection (ICAP) at Georgetown Law.
McCord & crew have proactively urged local municipalities to bring on ICAP pro-bono in an attempt to charge American Citizens for openly carrying in public due to Idaho State Law against militia’s assembling in a paramilitary fashion.
Letter to City of Coeur d’Alene from ICAP after Gun d’Alene in early June 2020.
Goldsmith and McCord are mentioned in this NPR article and likely working in tandem: Trials begin for Patriot Front members, but some say local prosecutions aren’t enough.
At the federal level Jamie Raskin U.S. representative for Maryland’s 8th congressional district (democrat) has led the charge to address white supremacy in seven hearings discussing hate crimes and the rise of white nationalism. Deep dive available here.
Raskin and Goldsmith happen to be speaking together at TruCon June 2, 2023.
And the FBI has been caught targeting Traditional Catholics in a leaked document: Interest of Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical-Traditionalist Catholic Ideology Almost Certainly Presents New Mitigation Opportunities.
Exposing these organizations at a local and national level is KEY to understanding the direct threat to American Patriots across the nation.
This story is just a microcosm of networks plotting to destroy the livelihood and ensnare any who dare challenge the narrative of the Marxist agenda in the ongoing Culture War.
