(updated 09/30/2022) One hundred and seventy five (175) area residents engage with Kanab Patriots FB page promoting hate, bigotry, disinformation, personal attacks, business attacks, extremism, war cries, carry weapons against neighbors, public health disregard and defense of criminal behavior including embracing locals who went to DC January 6th to attack democracy.
Forty Kanab Patriots were featured in the KURW post Meet the Kanab Patriots (last names A-C). Eleven (11) Kanab Patriots with last names beginning D, E and F presented in this collage just below and detailed information in the slideshow in section 2 of 4 of this post.
A few of the 175+ Kanab Patriots do not meet the criteria so are not included on KURW Hatewatch with 400+ of their neighbors. Some of the Kanab Patriots are included in the 60+ Red Level Neighbors for their extensive hate/extremism/bigotry, including the founders USMC Veteran Jeff Schwilk and partner Ly “Tana” Kou pictured above and detailed in slideshow in section 4 of 4 below.
As always, use KURW resources for Reforming Extremists on Hatewatch and email firstname.lastname@example.org for corrections or support.

4/4: Google Presentation of the Founders of Kanab Patriots
Co-founders Jeff Schwilk & Tana Kou moved to Kanab from Southern California in 2018. Jeff had some legal battles with hate groups that he founded and/or led there and already had other FB extremists pages before starting his first local page “Kanabians for Slow, Sensible Growth” then “Kanab Conservative Activism” now “Kanab Patriots.” The Southern Poverty Law Center (non-profit U.S. organization monitoring the activities of domestic hate groups and other extremists) exposed Schwilk’s activities from 2007-2018.
