Stuff That Has Nothing to Do with Wikipedia: "Communism Kills" of Tumblr

Above is the banner of a certain American conservative Tumblr blog, Communism Kills, run by Ashley Rae Goldenberg, who allegedly works at L. Brent Bozell's Media Research Center. If you look at her blog, it's your stock "trash the Left" bit of work; as I write this she's slamming Bernie Sanders.

The image above is a self-portrait of Goldenberg from her blog. The image below is also her, supposedly:


And that guy with the World War One Imperial German flag is supposedly this fellow:



Who is Matthew Heimbach, founder of the White Student Union at Towson University in Maryland. And they were dating, just to make matters even worse.

She deleted the post above, where she admitted she dated Heimbach from 2011 to 2012. Below is Heimbach at some sort of skinhead or Neo-Nazi gathering in 2013:

Note the Klan insignia on the wall, we added the red arrow on the grass.

I am not doing this to humiliate Goldenberg or Heimbach; I just find it fascinating how the farthest-Right and the regular-Right can overlap like that, much as Doug Henwood discovered as a member of Yale's Party of the Right during the Nixon administration when POR members outnumbered German-language students at a screening of Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will. The most annoying part was having to use a neo-Nazi website as a source, though another Tumblr blogger confirmed it. We have a sickening feeling all this stuff will be deleted within the next five years because Tumblr seems to delete blogs for breaking some set of rules possibly only known to Tumblr users. Heimbach is listed on the Southern Poverty Law Center's "extremist files" website, so he can't walk away clean, but Ashley Rae Goldenberg can.

  2. It is quite similar to the phenomena of regular left and far left overlapping as well. The human condition, I suppose.
