After crowdfunding website Patreon banned prominent conservative activist Lauren Southern for allegedly behaving in a way that “could lead to loss of life,” CEO Jack Conte allows far-left activist Logan James Smith to dox right-wingers.
Smith, who tweets to over 381,000 followers under the Twitter handle “@YesYoureRacist,” uses the funds he receives from Conte’s platform to encourage others to assault so-called “fascists” Smith disagrees with. Following protests in Charlottesville, Virginia on Friday and Saturday by “Unite The Right”—a broad coalition aimed at stopping the removal of a local statue of Civil War Confederate General Robert E. Lee—Smith asked Twitter users to pass along identities and locations of attendees for him to spread.
Smith has tweeted out encouragement to hurt right-wingers, saying they should “bash the fash,” meaning “fascists.”
You can either actively oppose white supremacy, or you can silently support it. There is no other option. Silence is consent. #BashTheFash

Through the weekend, the Patreon user also called for the executions of lawful rallygoers.
Smith works as the communications director for the liberal nonprofit group “Progress NC Action,” whose website claims they seek to protect “a system that values the voices of voters over special interests.”
Though the communications director preaches hate against the lawful expressions of voters. On Saturday, he supported pepper-spraying citizens for even showing up in public.
During and after the weekend, James continued to call for donations through his Patreon page, which brags that it’s “creating problems for racist people.”
Alright, that's it for tonight — I'll catch up on DMs tomorrow and identify some more racists. In the meantime: https://t.co/6KDshW1BXS

How can Conte claim he opposes any use of his site that could lead to loss of life when Smith’s revealing his political opponents’ personal information could get them and their families hurt?
On Monday, The New York Times reported that Smith had “made a misstep.”
The account apologized for using an old photo of Joey Salads, a YouTube star, from a different event in which Mr. Salads said he was wearing an armband with a swastika as an “experiment.” He was not at the rally.
Will Conte step in before Logan Smith backed by Patreon money gets someone killed?
