KKK-Affiliated Magician Calls For ‘Dismemberment’ Of Black Activists

“We have both of you on our radars …”

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

A South Carolina magician with purported affiliations to the Klu Klux Klan (KKK) and Proud Boys nationalist organization was granted a personal recognizance bond after advocating for the “dismemberment” of two black activists last week.

On Wednesday (June 5, 2024), 41-year-old Christoper Edwin Campbell was arrested by deputies of the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) for threatening to “cut, corner and quarter” the bodies of Traci Fant and U.A. Thompson, PhD, during a now-viral tirade online. 

Following the death of Trayvon Martin in 2012, Fant rose to prominence for organizing volunteer-based advocacy which progressed into creation of her 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Freedom Fighters Upstate. Thompson has has since been embraced by Fant as a fellow freedom fighter.

“We have both of you on our radars,” Campbell said on or about May 31, 2024. “And the backing that we have with the KKK and the Proud Boys? We have your number. Both of your numbers. Traci Fant and you, U.A. Thompson. So, you have nowhere to hide.”

During his recorded tirade, Campbell touted his alleged alliance with the Sons of Jericho Motorcycle Club (SOJMC)—a supposed gang of former KKK members, active Proud Boys, skinheads, arms dealers and computer hackers, according to a now-deleted Facebook post.

Despite its pacified social media presence, local bikers have declared that SOJMC is a fictitious organization created by Campbell; a master forger hailed by contemporaries as a “very dangerous man … lost in his mind of games.”

About that …

“We now have 75 active members,” the SOJMC wrote on May 23, 2024. “We are open to anyone that shares the passion for the open road, motorcycle riding, Second Amendment, freedom of speech [and] white power … We do not discriminate against your background.”

Come May 27, 2024, Campbell took to YouTube and announced his induction into the supposedly fictitious SOJMC. The newly appointed sergeant at arms thereafter encouraged “the Proud Boys, other hate groups [and] skinheads” to contact him for application details.

A longtime tenant of his former employer, Anderson County coroner Greg Shore, Campbell purports to being a TV magician, ordained minister, licensed pilot, certified paralegal, private investigator, custom jeweler, archeologist and locksmith, among fifteen additional occupations.

“He lives about ten feet from from the shop,” a source familiar with Shore’s longtime company, MedShore Ambulance Service. “Greg Shore has been aware of Campbell’s rhetoric for quite some time now. The coroner put a campaign sign in Campbell’s front yard last week.”

Sourced have since alleged that Campbell was disqualified from Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) class for forgery in 2023. When he was subsequently fired from MedShore, local law enforcement officers were purportedly called to escort him from the establishment.

“U.A Thompson … is a racist,” said the non-credentialed ambulance driver during his aforementioned tirade. “Executed on the spot. You need to have your head chopped off with a guillotine … That’s what you need to be done. You are a piece of shit.”

Come June 6, 2024, Campbell was granted a $1,085 public recognizance bond by Anderson County magistrate Ronald L. Gambrell after being charged with two counts of unlawful communication by ACSO. He has since been ordered by Gambrell to refrain from contacting Fant and Thompson. 

“We come to disavow and denounce such hate-filled organization in our community,” Thompson said during a press conference following Campbell’s granted bond. “We do not know if there are others who espoused to the ideals and ideals that he projected forward.”

During Fant and Thompson’s press conference at the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) on Thursday, in which they were furthermore accompanied by Derrick Quarles, the community advocates once again called for the passing of a hate crime law.

“We are one of two states without a hate crime law,” emphasized Fant on GCSO grounds. “We’re going to push this. We’re going to push this until we can’t push this anymore because it’s unacceptable. And as a community, anybody that stands with us, and is against this type of thing, we need them.

This is the future that the white nationalists have planned for anyone liberal or the “wrong” color. It’s the same fear/violence/intimidation tactics that a regular columnist on Fits threatens those he disagrees with in every single column. the “We’re not racist” party is, surprise, racist and violent.

Where do these clowns come from? We already have the obligatory “white nationalist” threat to the future post , but in reality, these ass clowns might amount to 1/10th of 1% of the population – and I’m being generous here. Even the hilariously overstated SPLC “Hate watch” map has to list “Moms for Liberty” as hate group to come up with enough ‘dots’ on their map to make things look bad.

They are Republican voters. They come from the same place you do and share your ideals. These racist clowns are your peers. Don’t act surprised or confused. You know exactly what your peers are about.

No offense Colonel, but these are the guys Trump told to stand back and stand by. They are a significant contingent of the MAGA movement, well represented at the January 6 insurrection.

“Where do these clowns come from?”

Conservatives have always had a small minority that unabashedly says the quiet parts out loud.

C’mon, Colonel, don’t act like you’re surprised…

Republicans politicians are actively and openly trying to rile their voters into violence. Same with Republicans media toadies, like FitsNews. Luckily, all they are accomplishing is getting more of their voters arrested. Seriously, how many thousands of trumptards have been sent to jail over the last 8 years? Not including those who worked on Trump’s campaign or administration?

Sad, but the truth is this guy is representative of a large segment of the MAGA movement.

A ride through any retiree community will prove that to be false. Myrtle Beach and the Outer Banks are full of communities with MAGA banners and Trump signs without an extremist in sight. It briefs well that MAGA people are all extremist but it is simply false.

I have never voted for Trump for the record, but my 82 year old, retired teacher (with PhD), mother in law and her retired, blue collar worker, husband are both huge Trump fans. Socialists and hard leftist are doing their dead level best to alienate the right AND that small group of swing voters in the middle. The pendulum is swinging and not in their direction.

No, liberals are not alienating the right.

People like the guy in the blog post and you are doing that just fine yourselves.

Liberals/majority of Americans are just sitting back and watching your shitshow in disgust.

Colonel, what does an extremist look like? The truth is you don’t have to be an extremist. Just because you don’t like black people, brown people, or gay people, does not mean you are willing to go out and kill them like this guy is; but as in the case of Nazi Germany, it also does not mean you would stop it from happening if someone else would do it. For years the GOP has used racism to divide the country for their benefit. Trump has turned that into overdrive and demonized entire groups of people. There are significant numbers of open racist, anti-semites, and anti-gay people in his coalition, some of which are violent. Trump does not criticize that group and has normalized them.

The argument there are a bunch of socialists and leftists (whatever that means) going after normal people is crap. There are no socialists in power in the US. Biden is as middle-of-the-road traditional Democrat as it comes. But right-wing news paints anyone who is not a Trump supporter as a socialist or “leftist”. I am willing to bet your mother-in-law and father-in-law are Fox News watchers as are their friends. Get them to stop watching Fox for three months and you will see a dramatic change. I know, I saw it happen to my mother, when I got her to stop.

Say what you want, but the arguments Trump is making for his return are not economic arguments. Unemployment is at a record low, the stock market is at a record high, the GDP is great, deficits are down from the Trump years, manufacturing is returning to the US at a record pace and oil production is up from the Trump years. What economically does he have to talk about? His entire campaign is about revenge and us v. them. And that is not all. He openly wants to destroy and plans to destroy NATO if he returns to power. He has said so. If your 82-year-old mother-in-law really understood, that someone who has total disrespect for the military (calling them losers and suckers) wants to throw away everything her parent’s generation fought to preserve, would she really support him? She is caught up in a right-wing echo chamber cult. Trump offers nothing to people like her or any middle-class American. He just wants to sow division and inspire hate for his personal gain.

Actually, the real facts show who the Proud Boys are; who the Oath Keepers are; who the Bundys are. They have not been able to scrub everything off the internet. I got to see a LOT of live videos of each of these groups and know why they did what they did even well before January 6th. None of them are part of the BAMN group, like in Portland’s government. None of them are part of the Democratic Socialist Party. None of them are Marxists. They are the “enemy” of the Marxists. It’s a shame I can’t show some pictures of what happens when one of these groups aren’t around for people to see how brutal AntiFa and BLM have been while the police stood around and did nothing. These groups are HATED by the Marxists who are using propaganda to try to destroy them.

There is no Democratic socialist party, just a nickname that Fox and the radical right slapped on any and every Democrat. It keeps people like you inflamed at imaginary threats rather than focus on the real problems our nation is facing. Taxing the 1% is somehow, “socialism”. Look back to when this country was at it’s greatest and non-coincidentally, the millionaires were being taxed fairly. But how do you popularize NOT taxing them? By claiming that the “other side” wants YOUR money. Stop watching Fox and Newsmax, there might be enough of your brain remaining to eventually realize how out-of-touch they are and how much they are gaslighting their own viewers. After all, they didn’t pay almost a billion dollars to keep themselves out of a trial that would have exposed their many lies and propaganda sharing to their own viewers.

Although I absolutely do NOT CONDONE his behavior and believe there is no way he should have been bonded out so easily, could this simply be a case of a VERY MENTALLY ILL person and not political? I have a neighbor who gets drunk up quite often and threatens to kill all of his neighbors and their families. Nothing political about it.
