Aryan Nation Leader Arrested for Molesting Child

A famous white supremacist and former Aryan Nation leader has been arrested in South Carolina for child molestation and showing pornography to a child. August Byron Kreis is a Christian Identity minister with a long history of white supremacy.

A man identified by a civil rights advocacy group as a “hot-tempered, longtime white supremacist and Christian Identity minister”, was arrested by Richland County deputies Tuesday and charged with sexually assaulting a child under the age of 12.

August Byron Kreis, 59, was officially charged in Richland County with second degree criminal sexual conduct and disseminating obscene material to a child. Kreis has also been charged with criminal sexual conduct in Lexington and Kershaw counties.

Kreis was arrested after the mother of the victim filed a report against him. Sheriff Leon Lott said a thorough investigation discovered Kreis had sexually assaulted the victim and provided obscene material for about three months.

Kreis has been pretty quiet for the last few years, but this will make some headlines.

    This is a test comment post to see if its published.

    I noticed that there are no comment posts on any of the blog posts Ed published today. I’m wondering if there’s nobody around, that’d be a first, or if there is or was some technical difficulties posting comments.

    @1:

    I didn’t see any posts until about 2 minutes ago. I was wondering if Ed had slept in or had a another denial of service attack.

    Having watched some b-ball last night, I realize that he may still be in shock over the absolutely fucking horrible call in the final 11 seconds of the Syracuse-Duke game.

    Oh, comments DO work

    Well, fuck that nazifuck, with a firehose.

    It would be interesting to see how many of his public pronouncements over the years have been some variation on how `they` are a threat to `White Youth.` Former National Alliance member Kevin Alfred Strom ranted about Hollywood prematurely sexualising children, and forcing homosexuality and interracial relationships on them. He was busted on child porn charges in 2007.

    Cue the “No true Nazi…” meme in 3.. 2.. 1..

    I don’t know how to determine if he’s a True Nazi (TM) or not, but I do notice that he says he’s a minister.

    There’s a definite correlation among non-Nazis on that one.

    Racist douche rapes kids. I am not surprised. If your a douche in one area your likely to be a douche in another.

    “A man identified by a civil rights advocacy group as a ‘hot-tempered, longtime white supremacist and Christian Identity minister’…”

    Um, yes, so he’s both a white supremacist and part of the Christian Identity movement.

    Armchair Subversive has a long list of these sorts of scumbags. It often turns out the ones who point fingers while scaremongering the most are often the most likely to be the sickos they’re talking about.
