However, strong circumstantial evidence has now emerged indicating that Steven Speers, who currently hails from Grand Forks, ND, may have been an antifa mole specifically tasked to infiltrate the heritage group and orchestrate the ARA attack. The evidence is first alluded to in this Stormfront post. But it is on page 20 of the thread entitled "Five charged in Chicago attack! Here are their names" that the bulk of the evidence is presented.
Steven Speers is now verified to have posted on Stormfront as "Steven the Viking", and masqueraded as a white nationalist. A poster named Dark Sorrow has compiled considerable evidence against Speers, and documents links in this post. Dark Sorrow postulates that Steven Speers had access to the computer and the email account of Beckie Williams at some point, which would explain how antifa were able to hack it and publish the contents on One Peoples Project and other antifa sites.
Speers gets around. Although currently from Grand Forks, his child pornography warrant originates from Texas. Further research uncovered his Inmate Release Information Detail from the Northwest Florida Reception Center (NWFRC) Annex in 2009, where he was serving time for felony battery. His release address was given as DeFuniak Springs, FL. So in the space of three years, Speers has jumped from Florida to Texas to North Dakota. But even more significantly, Speers is described as having the "circle A" anarchy tattoo on the right side of his chest, along with a neck tattoo saying "Who's Next" and a "circle A" tattoo on the left arm. Had he appeared shirtless before the heritage group, that would have been a dead giveaway.
A photo referenced HERE, represented to be Speers' chest but omitting his head, shows two of the tattoos. Apparently the terms "left" and "right" are with respect to the reader's viewpoint. The anarchy tattoo on the right side is to the reader's right rather than the right side of his body.
Antifa sources are not acknowledging their ownership of Speers. One People's Project continues to cover his ass by representing him as one of us. However, thanks to some Stormfront researchers, the cat is out of the bag. Of course, the fact that Speers is wanted for child pornography does not exactly encourage ARA to claim him.
White Nationalist Reaction: On Stormfront, Merk0331 writes in part, "That sick POS! I spent time emailing him about how to fix his brothers artificial leg. Probably either wanted to worm his way in with that story or wanted us to give him money. Parts of his story didn't quite add up... but I'm suspicious about everybody online"...
On VNN Forum, Angel Ramsey writes, "This person contacted me on SF [Stormfront]. He was spreading lies about the Kelso's [Jamie Kelso, webmaster of White News Now]. They were kind enough to help him move to N. Dakota. This is obviously a very sick individual. He had a lot of people fooled".
