Covington Will Hijack Your Identity

In order to secure credibility for himself and his works, Harold Covington has fraudulently used the names of a number of well known White Nationalists. Recently the name of Ron Doggett, a longtime racial patriot, has appeared on Covington's Northwest Front blog. This screenshot was taken on 11 April 2011.




Covington also had posts on his blog more vaguely attributed to "Ron D.", and in his podcast of 18 November 2010 Covington claimed to be reading a letter from "Ron in Richmond." (Click here to listen.) All of this was clearly meant to convey the false impression that Ron Doggett was favorably disposed toward Harold Covington and receptive to his views. Ron Doggett has responded to this hijacking of his identity as follows:

It has been brought to my attention that a blog run by Covington had posts on it from a Ron or Ron D., Ron from Richmond and one even stated Ron Doggett, attacking Will Williams.

I want to make it clear I'm NOT the author of those posts (most likely Covington is), I consider Will Williams to be a long time friend and one of the best White patriot's I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. His dedication to the cause has been proven time and time again.

If any "movement" Northwest or otherwise has Covington as its main spokesperson it is doomed regardless of any other issues. [Ron Doggett, VNN Forum, 14 April 2011]



Covington did the same to Fred Streed. While the full surname was not used, it was clear circumstantially who "Fred S.", ostensibly a former member of the National Alliance staff, was supposed to be.




Fred Streed gave the following response to this unauthorized use of his identity:

I was recently contacted by someone who informed me that Tubby was posting comments on his blog from a "Fred S."

That is not me. I have never posted anything on Harold Covington's blog, or even read it.[Fred Streed, VNN Forum, 15 April 2011]

Jerry Abbott notes that Covington has a long history of hijacking identities, sometimes for the purpose of harming the person to whom the name belongs:

Sixteen years ago, in 1995, Harold Covington impersonated me on a newsgroup to arouse antagonism toward me among National Alliance posters. His deception was discovered and criticized, and to the criticism he responded with the words "Booga! Booga! Booga!" [Jerry Abbott, VNN Forum, 16 April 2011]

Some other identities that Covington is strongly suspected of using fraudulently are Keith Fulton, Joe Bishop, Oren Potito, Ward Kendall, Roger Hughes, and Billy Roper.

In addition to the use of names completely without permission, Covington has a history of drastically altering comments made by people who actually did say something to him. For example, there is a new comment on Covington's Northwest Front blog, allegedly from Robert Campbell, that according to Campbell is not at all what he said. Circassian, a.k.a. Ivan, makes exactly the same complaint. Robert Layne says that Covington also drastically altered messages that he posted on one of Covington's Yahoo groups a decade ago.

  1. The thing that anyone is failing to realize is that the comment section allows for ANYONE to type in a "Name." That means that Shenequea Kofanda could have been the one who alledgedly typed in these false names. I have been listening to this "Harold's the devil" crap for far too long. Is HAC always right? No, but then again NO ONE is. However he is the one who actually HAS A PLAN. Not just a bunch of people pissing and moaning on the internet while our races dies quicker and quicker each day.
    It is time we need to pull the blinders off our eyes and allow RACE to be the deciding factor, not money, not greed, not sex drugs and rock n' roll. We need to secure the existence of our people and a future for White children. End of story.
    When someone comes along with a better (as in easier to obtain) plan that at least has some small percentage of success then I will evaluate it and see if it is better than the Northwest Front. However until that time I must personally put all my efforts towards ensuring the White race lives on, not bickering like school children on the internet, too afraid to DO anything.

    1. Amen to this comment. The new rising White Nationalists, of which I count myself as one; look at this infighting and are appalled. THESE are the people who want to LEAD us? They are worse than a bunch of old Hens at a sewing circle.
      Set aside your personal, petty dislikes and realize who you are fighting for and what it looks like to outside recruits, because frankly you all look childish.
      Some of us are risking prison or worse (and I note that Harold is supporting and publishing letter of comrades in prison, unlike some) to fight for a dream, a dream sullied by the last 30 years of failure.
      Grow up or get out of the way.

    2. I think you either didn't read or didn't understand the article, which debunks personal attacks ("infighting") emanating from your hero, Tubby Covington.

      The excuse that anybody can post a comment and, "gee, those comments could have come from just anybody!" doesn't hold water, for two reasons. First, as Jerry Abbott indicates above, Tubby has a long history of this kind of behavior. Second, Tubby does not remove the fraudulent comments after it is established that they are fraudulent. Fake "Evelyn Hill" comments even kept appearing after I got the real Evelyn Hill to make a recording stating that she was not the one posting on Tubby's blogs.

      So stop pretending that Covington isn't responsible for these fake posts, unless you want the world to know for sure that you are a moron.

  2. Harold Covington has had a history of putting out statements under other real people's names, since long before he had his current blogs. He has done it to Carlos Porter, Jerry Abbott, and Ward Kendall, and probably others as well.

    I am familiar with Covington's mantra that he has a plan and nobody else has a plan. It isn't true. He does have a crazy scheme however, and I am not sure that anybody else has such a crazy scheme.
