The comprehensive slideshow of posts & all supporters is at the end of this post. PART #1 focus is Celeste Meyeres.

These extremists may seek to exploit the emergence of COVID-19 variants by viewing the potential re-establishment of public health restrictions across the United States as a rationale to conduct attacks.

Pandemic-related stressors have contributed to increased societal strains and tensions, driving several plots by domestic violent extremists,
and they may contribute to more violence this year.

To stay informed on events nationwide, follow Devin Burghart on twitter @dburhart.

Burghart works for IREHR (Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights) which asks everyone to contact them with any anti-mask/vax/mandate events As always, if you see plans of violence or attacks, contact local law enforcement and the FBI. If the threat is immediate, call 911.

IREHR shared the Utah event (image lower right) covered by Vice News. Eric Moustsos resigned from SLC Police for refusing to participate in PRIDE events and led this burning with Ammon Bundy and Phil Lyman in attendance. Ammon’s People’s Rights Militia is showing up at these protests in WA, recently closing down schools.

In April, Ammon’s PRM recruited in Kanab, see Bundy Recruits Kanab then his PRM Assaults Officer in Idaho and Patriot Prayer Joins. Kudos Kane County Office of Terrorism. Shawna Cox is the regional representative for PRM and her daughter, Sindi Vetere, was a 2021 candidate for Kanab Mayor after participating in the January 6th Insurrection at DC, see Kanab “Patriots” at the Capitol Insurrection and Local Law Enforcement Praise


Summary of Kanab area related events

Two actions in Kane County nearly eliminate local action for 2021: (1) Kane County Schools made masks a personal choice 08/2021 and (2) Kane County Commissioners announced a premature end, 03/19/2021, to the state mask mandate set to end 04/10/2021. Some are turning their effort to nearby public land. One such leader in the effort is Kanab City Council member Celeste Meyeres.

PART #1 of this Mask/Vax Series: CELESTE MEYERES

Because of the diminished concern for 2021, the posts in this series will consist mostly of 2020 activity and when available, expose efforts in nearby areas. Celeste Meyeres is the first to be featured because Celeste has the most recent post for activism for 2021 and her spouse, Nicholas Meyeres, led the protest at the schools early 2021.

KURW featured Celeste Meyeres in a previous post City Council: Celeste Meyeres and Nicholas in Lodging 2: Burro Flats High Desert Lodge, Nicholas & Celeste Meyeres for the public posts of extremism and bigotry.

  • 07/04/2020: Posted portion of letter from Arizona mayor in local FB group “Kanab Classifieds” encouraging residents to “Take charge of your own life…Stand up, be brave and free…The government has never been more ill equipped to solve your problems, nor is their job to do so.”

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.
