Kanab “Patriots” at the Capitol Insurrection and Local Law Enforcement Praise

(updated 05/03/2021). Police Chief Tom Cram and Kane County Sheriff deputy Colton Cram show their support of David Crosby and Steve Corson who went to the Capitol Insurrection Jan 6, 2021. According to public posts, Steve went with his brother Mark and Tana Kou states that a friend of hers was there, too. All people mentioned in this post are on Hatewatch. New & Improved, except Colton Cram.

Read each of their stories in this post and the stories of others arrested updated and searchable by state, keywords and/or characteristic : https://www.npr.org/2021/02/09/965472049/the-capitol-siege-the-arrested-and-their-stories as seen in the image below (55 military/law enforcement as of 03/30/21)

Stephen Corson of Glendale, Utah

See FBI photo #193-AOM background man with full white beard. **Note, being present is not a crime, FB post below state that he was present and that presence (if this photo is Steve or not) could lead to information for the FBI. (https://www.fbi.gov/wanted/capitol-violence). REPORT TO FBI: https://tips.fbi.gov/

Social media posts by Lois Corson (FB profile “Grace Ann Christian”) https://www.facebook.com/stephen.corson1) and Jeannine Corson (https://www.facebook.com/jeannine.corson.7) report that Steve’s brother Mark Corson of Rimrock, Arizona joined Steve at the Capitol.

Lois Corson “Grace Ann Christian” advertised the “call to action” Dec 23, 2020. That same bus was in one of Jeannine Corson’s photos with Q’Anon Shaman at the Phoenix rally which Mark Corson attended on that bus.

March 13, 2021, Kane County Sheriff Deputy Colton Cram referring to opposition to MAGA as “They are crazy people” (see more from Colton, Landon Cram and other Kane County Sheriff employees here). So, Corson continues hosting weekly “Save America” rallies after he went to the Capitol Insurrection, Kanab knows that Corson went the Insurrection and yet people still join him at rallies and law enforcement shows support while ridiculing opposers ?? Yes, Colton should have intervened, but he shows his bias here with his “THEY are crazy people” comment and with posts seeking praise/acceptance to those complaining about their family being on the KURW Hatewatch. New & Improved (in this case, Obray’s brother).

If you recognize Brittney Obray’s brother from Hatewatch, please email his hame and letter of matching photo to mgalaria@protonmail.com

Background: For years, Steve Corson of Glendale, Utah has displayed his beliefs on the roadsides of Kanab and neighboring Fredonia, Arizona. Before the June 04, 2020 Justice for George Floyd March in Kanab (https://www.sltrib.com/news/2020/06/06/black-lives-matter/) and Black Lives Matter demonstrations and activities which continued through November, Steve’s signs were that of Anti-choice and Jesus saves. In 2011, he and his wife, Lois Corson, carried crosses from Utah to D.C. (https://www.bgdailynews.com/news/walking-for-jesus/article_f4b4748f-3e94-5627-8364-2f3c64ad0166.html).

July 2020, Steve and Lois began weekly displays at the intersection of Hwy 89 and 89A with neon signs and flags growing in number by the week reflecting support of Trump, Back the Blue, bigotry and extremist rhetoric: “BLM hate mob”, “Media and schools kills USA”, “Socialism steals”. Area residents did not let that go unnoticed and held weekly counter-demonstrations with signs like “Black Lives Matter”, “Disrupt White Supremacy”, “Restore Democracy Vote Blue”, “Take Your Hate Somewhere Else” and posters/flags for LGBTQ & Ally and a variety of posters for Trump’s crimes. In July, Kanab City Police described Steve as “harmless”. By October, Kanab City Police were advising me to carry a gun.

Post-election, the Corson’s continued roadside displays for “Stop the Steal” and “Save America”. Lois Corson’s Facebook profile, Grace Ann Christian, is riddled with the far-right false narratives, bigotry, and Q’Anon rhetoric with tags like “WWG1WGA”.

David Crosby of Kanab, Utah

Dave is the owner of Crosby Farm and Home in Kanab, Utah. Dave posted photos of his trip to DC on January 5, 2021. His comments show his excitement for the following day with posts like “wait until tomorrow” and “Trump needs us”. Dave posted that he was at the Capitol. Kanab City Police Chief Tom Cram (Kanab City Police Chief, bigotry on display and how to file a complaint) replied “Good for you, MAGA” to Dave’s Capitol attendance posts.

REPORT TO FBI: https://tips.fbi.gov/. Dave’s FB profile https://www.facebook.com/davidtaylorcrosby and Parler @Cros32

Background: Dave fits the profile, and I was absolutely shocked to see him at the Capitol and to read his posts of fear, anger, betrayal, secret combinations, Satan, compelled to act now. DHS describes the new right threat to local politicians and journalists, emboldened by the Capitol Insurrection. Let’s see how his posts flow before–during–after Insurrection to shed light on anger toward politicians and journalists……….

Before Insurrection:

Kanab’s Kanassholes for rape meme

During/Surrounding Insurrection Jan 6-9: Continued defense of Trump, conspiring minds and media and the left crafted narratives, blames real being not of this world, cult calling?, fear communism/socialism & losing freedoms, and even after the Insurrection he says “I feel unusually moved to stand up and fight against evil at this time”, anger at media and Mitt Romney

After Insurrection: continued anger toward politicians and media and the left, dismissing actual reality as gaslighting by the media and the left. Lower image–reveals betrayal, frustration with past years and fear of concentration camps with continued call for Patriots to stand up.

Tana Kou of Kanab, Utah

posted “someone I know well was there” on Lois Corson’s page. While no one was named and no other posts were found to whom she referenced, it is important to note that Tana’s partner is Jeff Schwilk of Kanab, Utah formerly of San Diego, maybe he knows, too. Read more about Jeff in this post Kanab Veterans Engage in Extremism, Reflecting National Trend. Additionally,

I resided in the Kanab, Utah area from 2009 throughout 2020. I am reformed right, 15 years now, with most family members still far-right. I lived 37 of my 48 years in rural America. I created KURW after I discovered that two people from Kanab who I knew were at the Jan 6th Capitol Insurrection and the continued threat warning from DHS regarding the far-right movement. Studies show new trends in extremist characteristics, feelings of fear/anger/betrayal, an increase in social media recruitment and incitement, and radicalization as quickly as six months. I had a lot of documentation from covering the six months of weekly Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter and MAGA events in Kanab. I used that documentation, public posts on social media, contribution from community members and outside organizations to create Hatewatch because I feel like that is the best way that I can address the call for awareness.
