GPAHE Brings You the Latest News in Far-Right Hate and Extremism

GPAHE’s Project 2025 Blog Series: May 8th Update

Our blog series provides essential updates on Project 2025!

We understand that not everyone will read all 900+ pages of Project 2025, so we did it for you. Check out our one-page primer on Project 2025, which synthesizes the goals within this far-right Christian Nationalist agenda. 

This week’s post looks at how Project 2025’s Alliance Defending Freedom is promoting its anti-abortion agenda in the UK, how dark money is funding Project 2025’s authoritarian agenda, and how Project 2025’s anti-LGBTQ+ plans are being implemented in Tennessee.

NEW from GPAHE: YouTube Deplatforms Joseph Nicolosi, the “Father of Conversion Therapy,” After GPAHE Report

GPAHE’s research, notably our report Conversion Therapy Online: The Ecosystem 2023, the third publication in our series exposing the online presence of this dangerous practice, has played a crucial role in removing this harmful content from tech platforms. The permanent removal of Joseph Nicolosi Sr.’s YouTube account was directly linked to our report, which criticized YouTube for hosting such content. Nicolosi Sr.’s therapeutic practices are condemned by reputable medical institutions globally. We’re proud that our efforts have led to the removal of numerous harmful accounts, yet ongoing advocacy is essential, especially in non-English speaking countries where this medical disinformation content flourishes.

NEW from GPAHE: Fortnite’s Political Content Encourages Violence and Allows Players to Stage a Capitol Insurrection

Our ongoing investigation into extremism and election-related content on gaming platforms has unveiled concerning user-generated content within the immensely popular game Fortnite. This content promotes insurrection and pits world leaders against each other in violent matches. Fortnite’s developer, Epic Games, has been on our radar due to their history of platforming problematic content and allowing hate to spread on their games. After our reporting, it’s become increasingly apparent that there’s a need for more robust content moderation in the game’s “creative mode,” which allows users to design these problematic games. 

Read our investigation to learn more about the games “Storm the Capitol” and “Election Box PVP.” ____________________________________________________________________________

Espresso: Mário Machado sentenced to two years and 10 months in prison 

We’ve been closely watching this trial unfold in Portugal because Mário Machado has ties to an extremist anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant organization, Grupo 1143, that we sounded the alarm on earlier this year. Machado has been sentenced for inciting hatred online, specifically against women and local leaders. His actions are in line with others of the group who have been responsible for tearing down LGBTQ+ flags and the harassment of minorities across the country.

GPAHE’s previous warnings about the threat posed by Grupo 1143 seem to have materialized, with members of 1143 now suspected of carrying out attacks last week on migrants in Porto. Hopefully, if Machado serves time, Grupo 1143 may collapse, as has happened to other extremist organizations Machado led in the past, including the Portuguese Hammerskins, Nova Ordem Social, and the Frente Nacional.
