Patriot List from Kanab Patriots

  • True Value/Lumber Plus, owner Terril Honey. There is no public posting by owner, only inclusion on Kanab Patriot post.
  • Muley Crazy, owner Ryan Hatch. There is no public posting by owner, only inclusion on Kanab Patriot post.

This list was posted on FB Extremist Page Kanab Patriots. Read more about this group on a previous post “Kanab Patriots” Recruits and Radicalizes Facebook Extremists. Because this page is rife with inaccurate information and a page administrator is known for publicizing false information about people and businesses, I can only attest to public postings (see slideshow below) because Kanab Patriots asked to be messaged as well. If you own one of the businesses listed and are not a far-right extremist, you should post on their page to have your business removed.

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.
