November 5, 2021 saw a couple call themselves a “married couple”. “Mr. and Mrs. Saxon” Participants on the neo Nazi podcast “Achtung Amerikaner” I am promoting a new social media project that aims to help American parents home-school their kids.
“We are so deeply invested into making sure that that child becomes a wonderful Nazi,” Mrs. Saxon told the podcast’s host. “And by home-schooling, we’re going to get that done.”
The Saxons claim they initiated the “Dissident Homeschool” After years of looking for and creating, Telegram now has a channel “Nazi-approved material” for their own home-schooled children — material they were eager to share.
The Dissident Homeschool channel — which now has nearly 2,500 subscribers — is replete with this material, including ready-made lesson plans authored by the Saxons on various subjects, like Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee (a “grand role model for young, white men”Martin Luther King Jr.“the antithesis of our civilization and our people”).
Print out copywork assignments for your children so they can practice cursive and write quotes from Adolf Hitler. These are some of the recommended readings that include bits and pieces of advice. “do not give them Jewish media content,” There are some tips to ensure that parents who homeschool are happy. “full compliance with the law” So that “the state” doesn’t interfere.
The Saxons frequently share updates with their followers regarding their home-schooling journey. Telegram was their first platform for sharing an audio message from their kids shouting. “Sieg Heil” — the German phrase for “hail victory” That was the Nazis’ use.
Dissident Homeschool has grown to be a network for fascists with similar views who consider homeschooling integral in whites’ wresting of America. The Saxons started this community hiding behind a fake name. The Sunday Review examined evidence to determine that Logan Lawrence and Katja Lawrence are from Upper Sandusky in Ohio. Logan, until earlier this week, worked for his family’s insurance company while Katja taught the kids at home.
The Anonymous Comrades Collective is a group anti-fascist researches. uncovered evidence It is believed that the Lawrences were behind Dissident Homeschool. The Sunday Review has verified the collective’s research.
The Lawrences didn’t respond to multiple requests for comment via email, phone and text message. A The Sunday Review reporter also left a message in the Dissident Homeschool channel asking Mr. and Mrs. Saxon for comment about the Anonymous Comrades Collective’s research. That message was immediately deleted by the channel’s administrators, who then disabled the channel’s comment and chat functions.
A short time later, Katja Lawrence deleted her Facebook page.
Although the Lawrences will now surely face some public scorn and accountability, it’s likely their neo-Nazi curriculum is legal. A concerted, decades-long campaign by right-wing Christian groups to deregulate home schooling has afforded parents wide latitude in how they teach their kids — even if that means indoctrinating them with explicit fascism.
To save their children’s lives, major right-wing figures continue to promote home schooling. “wokeness” — or liberal ideas about race and gender — in public and private schools. Although Dissident Homeschool is extreme, its propaganda targeting American schools is just as explicit and vulgar as talking points shared by Fox News hosts, or major Republican Party figures.
“Without homeschooling our children,” Mrs. Saxon was once a writer. “our children are left defenseless to the schools and the Gay Afro Zionist scum that run them.”
The Unmasking The Saxons
After Anonymous Comrades Collective published its research suggesting Mr. and Mrs. Saxon are actually Logan and Katja Lawrence, two of the couple’s relatives talked to The Sunday Review. They both asked to remain anonymous.
These two relatives were confirmed as being identical. The Sunday Review: Mr. and Mrs. Saxon speak on the neoNazi podcast “Amerikaner” Logan and Katja were the owners. “They have very distinct voices to me,” One of their relatives stated it. “It was absolutely Logan … no doubt in my mind that it wasn’t them.”
The relatives confirmed that Logan and Katja home-school their children and that they have a German shepherd named Blondi, which is the same name as Hitler’s dog — something “Mrs. Saxon” Telegram mentions her once. Katja Lawrence (owner of the dog) was found to be Wyandot County’s license holder. “black/tan” German shepherd.
Despite their best efforts to keep their real, offline identities hidden, over the past year, Mr. and Mrs. Saxon had revealed similar pieces of biographical information in Telegram posts, blogs and podcast appearances — information the Anonymous Comrades Collective filed away.
Just like when Mr. Saxon said that he and his spouse live in a tiny farming community in the Great Lakes region. “A town of 6,000 people, in the middle of a cornfield that, up until about five years ago, was essentially 100% white,” He spoke out on a podcast and lamented that the area was getting more diverse. “Until 1945, there was a sign on the city limits that said ‘no negroes allowed within the city limits,’” He added.
The Anonymous Comrades Collective suspected that the Saxons may be living in Ohio and found census records that indicated Upper Sandusky was home to approximately 6,000 people. A. Tougaloo College database of former Sundown Towns — all-white communities that warned Black people not to be seen there after sunset, lest they be murdered — Upper Sandusky was once home to a racist sign with a message similar to the one Mr. Saxon described. According to our database, it actually stated: “N****r don’t let the sun set on you.”)
In the same episode of podcast, Mr. Saxon grew mad while talking about how a local company had provided employment for Puerto Rican refugees after Hurricane Maria. The He stated that the company was “bringing third world, tropical people into our little white ethnostate of a town.” An analysis of the news media after Hurricane Maria shows us that Kasai North America was an Upper Sandusky automotive supplier, and had been in 2018. recruited workers The storm displaced many.
Mrs. Saxon revealed she is a naturalized European immigrant. Her posts suggest that she may be Dutch, since she often discussed Dutch politics, food, and culture. 2017. article in The Toledo Blade Katja Lawrence, a 51-year-old woman from the Netherlands was among those who were sworn in during naturalization ceremonies at local high schools. Her origin country: The Netherlands.
Telegram’s neo Nazis mourned the death of the Saxons after Anonymous Comrades Collective released its research this week. One man going under the name “Gordon Kahl,” Who hosts it? “Amerikaner” Podcast, published that “nothing bad happens to anyone who deserves it, just people like the Saxons who have never wronged anyone. What’s the fucking point.”
Gordon Kahl seemed to admit that Anonymous Comrades Collective research proved correct. Kahl, along with Mr. Saxon were actually friends offline according to an episode from the “Amerikaner” They discussed the possibility of going together to a neo Nazi party.
Where? The Sunday Review talked to the Lawrences’ two relatives, they were also in a type of mourning — shocked and saddened that two of their family members seemed to be secret neo-Nazis.
The relatives were mostly worried, though, about the Lawrences’ children being home-schooled this way. “That these kids don’t know anything different and probably won’t get to know anything different is just heartbreaking,” One of their relatives stated it.
Plus, the relative said, it’s not just the Lawrences’ children they’re worried about: It’s all the home-schooled children who have parents sourcing lesson plans from the Dissident Homeschool channel.
“It’s just horrifying,” “The relative replied. “It’s disgusting. It’s heartbreaking for their children and who knows how many other children that are affected by these actions.”
Their Dissident Homeschool channel was gaining more followers. Mrs. Saxon seemed delighted. Mrs. Saxon shared a Nazi-era photograph from Germany showing uniformed students saluting fascist salutes after the channel had reached 1,000 subscribers. “It fills my heart with joy to know there is such a strong base of homeschoolers and homeschool-interested national socialists,” She wrote to celebrate the occasion. “Hail victory.”
Mrs. Saxon is responsible for the majority of Dissident Homeschool’s postings and has developed detailed lesson plans other neo Nazi parents can use to educate their children. These lesson plans — About Christopher Columbus, the history of Thanksgiving and German Appreciation Day, as well as a “math assignment” about “crime statistics” This is supposed to be a way for kids to learn. “demographics to be cautious around” — are deeply racist.
A lesson plan on Martin Luther King Jr. teaches parents how to tell their children that Martin Luther King Jr. was a revered civil rights leader. “a degenerate anti-white criminal whose life’s work was to make it impossible for white communities to protect their own way of life and keep their people safe from black crime.”
“Typically speaking,” A post was written by Mrs. Saxon. “whites build societies whereas blacks destroy them.”
The lesson plan includes a copywork assignment that parents can print to help their children practice cursive and write a racist quote from George Lincoln Rockwell (the infamous American neo Nazi).
“A leopard doesn’t change his spots just because you bring him in from the jungle and try to housebreak him and turn him into a pet,” Rockwell’s quote. “He may learn to sheathe his claws in order to beg a few scraps off the dinner table, and you may teach him to be a beast of burden, but it doesn’t pay to forget that he’ll always be what he was born: a wild animal.”
Many Dissident Homeschool subscribers thanked Mrs. Saxon often for her lesson plan. “This is perfect,” One subscriber sent this message. “My wife and I are always looking for good pro-white lesson plans for our kiddos.”
“I love the work you are doing on this channel,” A subscriber added another. “You are doing great work for our race.”
Many times, Mr. and Mrs. Saxon talked about indoctrinating themselves with Nazism. Mrs. Saxon published the following statement on April 20, 2022. “Our children celebrated Adolf’s birthday today by learning about Germany and eating our favorite German foods. Recipe included.”
“We are living life and enjoying the beauty left behind by our ancestors,” Elle continued. “Heil Hitler to you all. Alles Gute zum Geburtstag unserer Führer!”
Mrs. Saxon also posted a photograph of a copywork assignment she had just completed. It showed her kids’ cursive spelling out a quote from a man who, as Mrs. Saxon noted, “fought a great struggle for our people and dedicated his life to securing the existence of our people and a future for white children.”
The quote read, in part: “I fell down on my knees and thanked heaven … for granting me the good fortune of being permitted to live at this time.”
It was from Hitler’s “Mein Kampf.”
American Public Education: A People Hatred at It
Mr. and Mrs. Saxon are clear that they don’t have a problem, per se, with public schools — just with public schools in their current incarnation. “I have said this before: if we lived in Nazi Germany my children would attend school and after school extra curricular activities,” Mrs. Saxon once wrote.
But Mr. and Mrs. Saxon don’t live in Nazi Germany — they live in America in 2023, where they see schools as hellbent on turning children into everything they despise.
The Dissident Homeschool channel, beyond being a repository for neo-Nazi lesson plans, is also a clearinghouse for anti-education propaganda — namely memes and videos that paint public schools as havens for liberalism and “degeneracy,” It is often stated by the Saxons.
The channel is often filled with memes and videos from far-right activists like LibsOfTikTok. Chaya Raichik runs the hate account. LibsOfTikTok has been at the center of a conservative uproar over how schools talk about the existence of queer people, with Raichik’s memes and videos falsely depicting the LGBTQ community as using the classroom to “groom” children. Raichik is now famous on the right, appearing on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox Nation, and getting a shoutout on Joe Rogan’s podcast, which is the most-listened-to in America.
Raichik shared a tweet this week about a teacher who spoke to students about gender identity. “Homeschool your kids,” She wrote.
A growing chorus of right-wing figures have latched onto this anti-LGBTQ moral panic — along with a corresponding panic over “critical race theory” being taught in schools — to encourage their followers to home-school their children.
“There’s a lot of interconnectedness between the home-schooling movement and the current attacks you’re seeing on public schools,” Carmen Longoria Green, an attorney who is the president of the Coalition for Responsible Home Education told The Sunday Review. “The calls for books bans, the attacks on libraries, the attacks on public school teachers and limiting their ability to provide instruction about American history and so forth. It’s all quite interconnected.”
Longoria-Green, who was home-schooled herself, said the right-wing push to home-school kids started over half a century ago in response to Brown v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court ruling that desegregated America’s schools. White Christian fundamentalist parents protested that their children had to go to school with Black students. Moreover, Longoria-Green said, these parents saw home schooling as a way to make sure their children’s education aligned with their religious ideology.
“They realized that it was a way to restrict access to information about science they disagreed with, so it was a response to their concerns about the teaching of evolution in public schools, and it also had to with desires to restrict children’s access to information about sexual orientation and sexuality,” Longoria-Green said. “And it answered their desire to restrict info about American history, specifically America’s colonialist, racist, genocidal past.”
The Right-wing organisations like the Home School Legal Defense Association lobbied legislators in order to allow home schooling nationwide to be deregulated during the 1980s.
“They activated home-schooling parents and basically bullied the legislators into removing all types of restrictions or protections that would have ensured that home-schooled children were receiving a good education and were safe,” Longoria-Green said. “So it is very, very easy in this country now to claim to be home schooling but to not actually be providing your children with an adequate education. And I’m not even saying a non-racist education. I’m saying it is quite possible in this country to claim that you’re home-schooling and then never teach your child how to read.”
Longoria-Green wasn’t optimistic when asked about whether there might be a way for the government to intervene to stop Mr. and Mrs. Saxon, or other parents in the Dissident Homeschool channel, from indoctrinating their kids to Nazism.
“I think what they’re doing is perfectly legal,” She said.
Ohio requires parents to apply if they want their children to be homeschooled. “a brief outline of the intended curriculum” And a “list of teaching materials” The state Department of Education will give the information to the public school superintendent.
If the “home education plan” The child must meet the minimum requirements under state law before the superintendent can exempt him from attendance at public schools.
But even in states with these types of requirements, there’s little to no enforcement mechanism to ensure that parents are actually teaching the curriculum they submitted to the superintendent.
It’s unlikely, after all, that Mr. and Mrs. Saxon would send their local superintendent the lesson plans they created praising Hitler.
Eric Landversicht is the Wyandot County superintendent, where the Lawrences are based. The Sunday Review, a statement that he “cannot discuss the personally identifiable information of specific students due to state and federal privacy laws.”
He pointed. The Sunday Review to Ohio’s home-schooling statute and noted that “parents who decide to home educate their child are responsible for choosing the curriculum and course of study.”
The Saxons regularly post content in Dissident Homeschool channel, instructing parents about how to deal with superintendents and other officials who may assess their curricula.
“For many states in America, it is so very easy to be in compliance,” Mrs. Saxon once wrote. “You send a letter … Just find out what you have to do, and quickly do it. After that, you can sit down and relax, and figure out how you will homeschool the children.”
Another time Mrs. Saxon was more reflective on Dissident School and its goals.
“I just work hard to homeschool the children, live life, enjoy the children, do the whole homestead bit AND secretly anonymously share homeschool information with a group of fellow nazis on a private little corner of the internet so that our children can all become super race aware and fight for their race,” She wrote.
She was excited about the future and keen to make new lessons plans for her children and her subscribers.
“We have given the oldest kids tidbits on WWI and WWII,” Mrs. Saxon made the following comment during a Dissident Homeschool chat. “And hopefully in a year or so we will have a grand unit study to offer all the dissident-right children about Hitler.”
