NEW from GPAHE: How “White Boy Summer” Turned Into A Transnational Hate Campaign

In our new report, we reveal how a slogan from Chet Hanks, Tom Hanks’ son, has escalated into a powerful global call-to-action for far-right recruitment, protest, and violence. Extremist groups including the Proud Boys and other white nationalists around the world are using “White Boy Summer” to spread propaganda, recruit new members, and facilitate targeted hate campaigns including acts of vandalism and hate incidents. Far-right extremist political figures in the U.S. and Europe are also using it as a rallying cry. 

New York Times covered GPAHE’s new report in How Tom Hanks’s Son Spawned a Hateful Meme Online 

“It’s really about how quickly and how devastatingly something like this can go viral and the impact it has,” Wendy Via, cofounder of GPAHE said. “Extremists are hurting people all over the world in the name of this thing.”

GPAHE’s take: The New York Times article highlights our investigation that tracks the evolution of the “white boy summer”phrase from a celebrity influencer into a global white supremacist slogan, exposing how fringe ideas can rapidly enter mainstream and political discourse through social media. The spread of this slogan and the harms it has inspired underscores the profound social responsibility that public figures bear in their words and actions. GPAHE emphasizes the need for those with powerful platforms to remain vigilant against irresponsible statements that can be used for tools of hate and division.

The AP: Leader of the pro-Trump Project 2025 suggests there will be a new American Revolution

“[Heritage Foundation President Kevin] Roberts’ comments about a ‘second American Revolution’ are ‘a bit terrifying but also elucidating’…Roberts, the Heritage Foundation, and its allies in Project 2025 want to reorder American society and fundamentally change it. [Roberts] has said the quiet part out loud.”– GPAHE co-founder Heidi Beirich

GPAHE’s take: Heritage Foundation’s President Kevin Robertsh has been ratcheting up his rhetoric and speaking of revolution. While being interviewed this past Tuesday on former Trump advisor Steve Bannon’s podcast, “War Room,” Roberts frighteningly claimed that the U.S. is in “the process of the second American Revolution, which will remain bloodless if the left allows it to be.” Such rhetoric is dangerous but unsurprising for Roberts, whose organization leads the authoritarian Project 2025 effort. GPAHE’s analysis of the plan shows Project 2025 would decimate the civil rights of multiple communities, obliterate the separation of church and state in favor of Christian Nationalism, politicize the DOJ and FBI, and allow the executive unparalleled powers, among other horrors.

NEW from GPAHE: Pride Month events subject to harassment and violence by anti-LGBTQ+ hate groups globally

In June, Pride events across the globe faced harassment, threats, and violence from anti-LGBTQ+ extremists. GPAHE continues to monitor rising threats against the LGBTQ+ community, which are propelled by the increasing vitriol and demonization directed at  LGBTQ+ people by the far right. From coordinated disruptions of Pride events in Europe to physical assaults in South America, GPAHE exposes the deliberate efforts by the far right to suppress, intimidate, and violate the human rights of LGBTQ+ communities.
