Lodging 1: KANAB SUITES, John Schouten

John Schouten

Crystal Aiken Schouten

John & Crystal Schouten live in Kanab and are owner/operators of Kanab Suites, since 2019. John is from Southern California and Crystal is a Kanab Aiken family member.

  • John support bigotry of liberals posted in local FB groups including the “just leave” or “move back, you aren’t welcome” response.
  • He has been a member of the FB extremist group “Kanab Patriots” Recruits and Radicalizes Facebook Extremists from its beginning of June 2020 with the sole purpose of targeting Black Lives Matter supporters and organizing/promoting counter protests.
  • He encourages any false information which portray his neighbors standing for justice as violent, sick and evil and yet defended the Proud Boys in October 2020 calling them “defenders of our republic”. This article explains PB and reason for Chinese Americans as major donors https://m.dailykos.com/stories/2021/5/4/2028961/-Proud-Boys-and-their-nonwhite-supporters-are-really-all-about-the-right-wing-authoritarianism
  • John supports misogynistic, ridiculing posts of female activists and “likes” that his business is listed with the FB hate page Kanab Patriots.

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.
