White Supremacist Who Traveled to New York to Murder Black Men Followed Extremist Racist On-Line Groups Who Support Trump

A white supremacist who traveled to New York City to kill black men subscribed to numerous neo-Nazi, anti-feminist and far-right conspiracy theory channels on YouTube, according to what appears to be his personal account on the website.

James Harris Jackson stabbed a black man with a sword on the street in Manhattan on Wednesday, March 22, in what he admitted to police was an intentional hate crime. Jackson, who is from Maryland, told police he is a member of a white supremacist hate group.

Jackson had traveled to New York with plans to kill black men in relationships with white women, but wound up targeting a homeless man in an act of terrorism. Jackson says he carried out the attack to “send a message” and claims he’s written a racist manifesto.

On what appears to be Jackson’s personal YouTube account, he subscribed to a variety of fascist YouTube channels, many of which support President Donald Trump and other far-right leaders and circulate anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. His subscription list is a who’s who of alt-right figures, including Alex Jones, Stefan Molyneux, Paul Ray Ramsey and many more.

Jackson subscribed to the channel for the National Policy Institute and Radix. The former is the white supremacist organization founded by neo-Nazi Richard Spencer (who led a “Hail Trump” chant at a white supremacist conference last year), and the latter is the fascist journal Spencer publishes.

Openly neo-Nazi channels Jackson subscribed to include Cybernazi, Politically Incorrect and Esoteric Truths. He also frequented many racist, anti-Semitic, white nationalist and anti-feminist channels.

Jackson did not upload any videos onto his channel, but he did recently favorite racist videos, including two titled, “Is It Time For Whites To Start Voicing Their Displeasure With Black On White Crimes?” and “Blacks Know That Blacks Are Violent So Why Does The White Media Pretend They Are Not?”

The channel was uncovered by Internet detective @HenryKrinkIe, a leftist Twitter user who hunts Nazis. KrinkIe previously uncovered the white supremacist website and manifesto left by neo-Nazi Dylann Roof, who massacred nine people at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina in hopes of starting a “race war.” Roof said in his manifesto that he was radicalized by far-right white supremacist websites.

Krinkle was able to uncover Jackson’s YouTube channel through some master sleuth work.

Media reports noted that Jackson served in the U.S. Army for four years and was deployed to Afghanistan. Using this information, he was able to track down his LinkedIn profile, where Jackson included a copy of his résumé, which has his email address. When one searches this email on Google, only one result comes up: a Russian hacking website which posted the personal information of video game players. The webpage showed that Jackson played the video game “Assassin’s Creed II” on PC, and used barris417 for his username. Type in barris417 on YouTube and an account with the name James Jackson pops up.

This attack is part of a massive surge in hate crimes in the past year, with the rise of far-right politicians like Donald Trump. In January, white gunman Alexandre Bissonnette massacred Muslims praying at a mosque in Quebec, Canada. His social media accounts and testimonies from classmates showed Bissonnette was a white nationalist, anti-feminist and staunch supporter of Trump, Marine Le Pen and other far-right demagogues.

    There was Bob Jones of North Carolina, infamous for jump-starting a waning KKK in 1963, and leading to a widespread rein of terror against Blacks , with time out to terrorize an occasional Jewish adherent or a Catholic now and then; next major member on the All-Star Racist Team was Byron De La Beckwith of Jackson, Miss., and contemporaneously, Robert(“Dynamite Bob”) of Birmingham whose nickname is because of his specialty of using dynamite to terrorize Black families in Alabama, and infamous for blowing up a church, on a Sunday no less, and during services, killing 4 young black girls robbed of an opportunity to live beyond high school; followed by Charles Manson, a wild-eyed maniac in Calif. who killed with an ulterior motive of hoping to ignite a Race War; next is a young man at the time, David Duke, now the Grand Wizard of the KKK, and an ardent supporter of one, Donald John Trump(alias “Trumpy”, “45”, “The Narcissist Kid”), an illegitimate President of the USA; then Dylan Roof, another young man filled with a rage and satanic force that surpassed what ‘Dynamite Bob’ did, by actually entering a church of black congregants, to protect the honor of ‘white women’, and keenly motivated to exult in ‘Whiteness’, and now this minion of Satan, caught before carrying out his murderous intentions, again for the aim of showing allegiance to the ephemeral qualities called “Race” and ‘Whiteness’, believer in a non-biological untenable concept called “Purity of ‘White’ Blood’ “.

    An irony is that each and every one was of Christian backgrounds, avowedly Christian,
    intoxicated with the change in skin coloration as a result of the necessity to have darker skin change over to a lighter complexion the further one was removed from the equator by 40,000 years ago. The grandest irony is that those who are consumed with an adoration of their changed skin color could trace their ancestry to those humans who first arose in southeast Africa over a million years ago, underwent a 2nd transformation as “Modern Humans” about 50,000 years ago, began to journey over generations across Africa and up into Europe, Asia, Australasia, and eventually some reaching the Americas and peopling the Pacific Ocean.

    Another irony is Trump and his supporters’ sole fixation on atrocities committed by a minority of Muslims called by various names, while choosing to remain utterly oblivious to ‘red-blooded’ American murderers, and supporters of murderers, by deed or word, including an arch-abettor of and inspiration for racists, namely, Donald John Trump, grandson of a criminal from Germany who illegally entered America back in the day, to escape having to face trial for refusal to register for military service.

    So, there we are. And clearly the current status quo institutions, secular or religious, are unable to staunch this increase in a primeval hate motivated by an adoration of facial features and skin color. There aren’t any forms of idolatry, none that I know of, that can surpass in blasphemy and debasement the worship of ephemeral and transitory qualities like skin covering and facial features.

    I was paid 104000 bucks last year by doing an internet work while I was able to do it by w­orking in my own time f­o­r quite a few hours during the day. I applied job opportunity I found online and also I am excited that I was in a position to make such decent earnings. It is genuinely newbie-friendly and I am so blessed that I found out regarding it. Look into exactly what I do… http://nubr.co/uV9OuB

    It’s pretty sad that we have a president that inspires these types of people! He half-heartedly tells our citizens to “be nice,” but his attitude and demeanor say differently! He needs to go before he starts another major race war!
