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]
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.
