|Thomas de Aynesworth|
Thomas de Aynesworth is one of several known counterexamples to that claim. Aynesworth was actually the person who suggested to Harold Covington the theme-music that he has been using at the beginning of his Radio Free Northwest podcast for the past three years.

When I recently referred to Aynesworth as a supporter of Covington's, using some harsh words, he found me in my IRC channel to issue a clarification, which happens to be also a testimonial to the value and effectiveness of this blog. While he says that he was never affiliated with Covington, it is evident that he was for a time positively disposed and had some "interactions" with Covington and some of his associates, which he terminated upon becoming better informed.
[22:50] Aynesworth: I am not, and never have been affiliated with Covington. When Covington first started his radio show, I was interested, ignorant of his past history. After getting the facts, I stopped interaction altogether.
[22:51] Aynesworth: Also, meeting with a member of the NWF, I realized that any further interaction was pointless.
[22:51] Aynesworth: He was messed up.
[22:51] Hadding: Well that was a good insight. Same thing that others have said.
[22:52] Hadding: You mind if I copy and paste that?
[22:52] Aynesworth: All I am asking, is that you understand that I am not with him, never have been. When I was in his contact I was totally oblivious to his past. Your own work has helped me realize that he is a dangerous and unstable character.
