‘Blood Tribe’ leader backs Biden for 2024 — RT World News

The outspoken neo-Nazi praised the extremist Azov kyiv Regiment during a march near Disney World in Florida

The leader of a flamboyant white supremacist group has told US media that he supports current US President Joe Biden over his predecessor Donald Trump because “He’s sending rockets into Ukraine.” Police say the group is “looking for attention.”

Former U.S. Marine Christopher Pohlhaus, who identifies himself online as “The Hammer,” led a march of several dozen “Blood Tribe” members in the Orlando area on Saturday. Dressed in red and black and waving swastika banners, the Pohlhaus crew performed the Nazi salute as passing traffic and shouted: “Hi Hitler.”

The rally attracted local media attention, with freelance journalist Brendan Gutenschwager stopping to interview Pohlhaus. Although President Joe Biden has described white supremacy as “the deadliest terrorist threat in the country”, Pohlhaus expressed his support for the Democratic president.

“My vote is useless” he began, before declaring “I think Biden is better than Trump because he is sending rockets into Ukraine. Hello Ukraine! Hello Azov! »

By “Heil Azov” Pohlhaus was referring to the Ukrainian Azov Regiment, a neo-Nazi militia officially incorporated into the Ukrainian National Guard in 2014 and destroyed by Russian forces during the siege of Mariupol last year. The regiment fights in uniforms adorned with Nazi symbols — including the rune wolfsangel (wolf hook) and the Sonnenrad, or “Black Sun” — and two of its spokesmen said in 2015 that nearly half of the regiment’s members were Nazis.

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky called the Azov regiment “hero.”

Behind Pohlhaus in the video was Kent “Boneface” McClellan, a Floridian Nazi who fought with the Azov Regiment and other extremist militias in Ukraine. In an interview last year, McClellan admitted to participating in atrocities in the Donbass region, and claims that the CIA helped him join the regiment.

Many right-wing commentators online have called Pohlhaus a “fed,” and the Blood Tribe, a government-run trapping operation. The organization has been active since 2021 and has shown up in more traditional right-wing protests throughout this year, such as performing Nazi salutes at a “Drag Queen Story Hour” event in Ohio in March. . Conservatives who demonstrated at the LGBTQ event say neo-Nazis came to tarnish their image.

According to a Maine Wire report, Pohlhaus co-owns property in the state with Fred Ramey, a former Democratic Party activist who campaigned for current Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg when he ran for office. presidency in 2020. Pohlhaus was facing federal drug charges. fired without explanation in 2012, while Ramey’s criminal record was expunged in the early 2000s.

Local law enforcement sees the Blood Tribe as troublemakers seeking attention. “We know that these groups are protesting in high-profile areas in order to agitate and incite people with anti-Semitic symbols and slurs. » the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. “They crave attention, especially media attention. »
