RECENT  REPORTS

THE COLUMBIA PAPER - What Hate-Watch Report says it needs now is for us to bear witness. The group asks that we not avert our eyes when the threat of hate is embraced as the route to power and fear is used as the tool to maintain it.  Become vigilant.  Remain involved.  -  Parry Teasdale, Editor

Hate-Watch Report received this report on January 3rd:

"Most of the video is taken in the Rensselaer Technology Park in the Town of North Greenbush.  The signs they are vandalizing are trail markers for a waterfall trail.  The entrance to the trail is next to the parking lot for one of Regeneron's buildings - which can be seen in the background toward the end of the video.

Defacement of  BLM Sign - Copake/Ancram - June 2, 2021

Report from local resident: "Someone put up this altered BLM poster on Route 7A on the road between Copake and Ancram.  It is not just defaced.  It was taken, then altered by painting over the "black", letting it dry, and then painting "white" over it, then taken and nailed up by the side of the road."

Q-anon (?) sign along Niverville Road - March 6, 2021

Is it Q-anon?  

"donate-your-organs-in-Wuhan" or

Is it anti-immigration?  

"getha-phuk-outa-r-country"

Or, is it just to be obnoxious and hateful?

 

In the past year, this and similar signs have been nailed to trees around Chatham Center, Malden Bridge and Old Chatham. 

And, along CR 21 going west from Valatie - April 4, 2021

  OATH  KEEPERS  IN  COLUMBIA  COUNTY

Statewide Leadership & Local Membership  (2009-2021)

Just five years ago - in 2017 - Columbia County was home to the leadership of the New York Oath Keepers.

 

At that time, the leader of the New York Oath Keepers was Town of Chatham resident, the late John Wallace, who was also the Chair of the Town of Chatham Republican Committee.

Oath Keepers Rally for Hudson City Police -  August 2016

"Chief, even though you participated and are thanking the attendees, I'm glad to hear you are not endorsing the Oathkeeper rally and the political rhetoric behind it."

"It would have been easy to mistake your behavior as supporting the organization and the text that the event organizers publicly posted." - Michael Chameides, Supervisor 3rd Ward 

  CONSTITUIONAL  SHERIFF  MOVEMENT

Far-Right Militancy in County Sheriff Departments

The movement formed around an organization called the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association is a phenomenon rarely, if ever, seen in the United States - a concerted, long-term effort to recruit law enforcement officers into the broader anti-government Patriot movement.
