This week, many Twitter users noticed that ‘Anne Frank’ was trending on the social media site after an anti-colonialism group, the Black Hammer Organization, accused the Holocaust victim whose diary about her harrowing time in hiding from the Nazis during WWII has circulated the world, of being a “colonizer.”

The group wrote on Twitter Tuesday, “If you wanna learn more about how anne frank is a colonizer and about the 200 acres we have liberated, join us tonight on our open meeting!” The post was an advertisement for “No community control of the Klan”, which was a fundraiser for “Hammer City”, a colony they’re hoping to form.

The GoFundMe page for the effort has raised over $64,000 of its $500,000 goal. Asked by this reporter whether Black Hammer’s recent tweets and messages violated any of the platform’s rules, GoFundMe didn’t offer a response.

The crowdfunding site has suspended users in the past. Last year, they dropped conservative activist Candace Owens for making controversial statements about George Floyd.

Meanwhile, Black Hammer’s Secretary General Anco defended their tweets about Anne Frank, telling this reporter, “Being called a colonizer is not an anti semitic slur. Its the material relationship white Jews have to colonized people. Ex: PALESTINE. We are not anti semetic [sic] , we are anti white.”

“Colonized Jews are within this organization, they represent Palestine, Ethiopia, Uganda, Korea, and Mapuche,” they said. “Religion is not what moves the world but rather Colonialism and White power do. Hope this clears that up.”

Anco added that the group also promotes its “principal [sic] of unity #2”, which “CLEARLY STATES we believe all colonized people are equal.”

“We believe all Colonized Proletariat are equal; no matter gender, sexuality, age, skin tone, body type, location, religion, language, mental/physical differences and/or bi/multiracial identity,” the principle states.

Black Hammer touts a logo that resembles the hammer and sickle of communism and socialism. The group has a strict “NO WHITES ALLOWED” policy and advocates “to take the Land Back for all colonized people worldwide.”

The organization features articles on its website lauding “sex work”, celebrating Chinese Communist Party leaders, and bashing cops.

“Currently, our physical and intellectual labor is being coerced to build for the capitalist white colonial state, but it can be redirected to a noble cause,” an about page on their site reads. “We will organize our labor to be of service to our people. Our symbol, the Hammer, represents breaking the chains of colonialism and building a self-determined future for all colonized people worldwide.”

This week wasn’t the first time the group used Anne Frank’s name to promote their message.

One year ago, Gazi Kodzo, who leads the organization and goes by “Chief” wrote on Twitter, “(middle finger emoji) Anne Frank! As a Black Child in america all through school I was propagandized to mourn a BECKY. I wasn’t told about the COUNTLESS Black girls america GENOCIDED! Indigenous girls america GENOCIDED! Palestinian girls that Israel is killing through GENOCIDE right now!”

Watchdog StopAntisemitism.org featured Kodzo as their “Antisemite of the Week” after that, saying, “Kodzo went on a horrific antisemitic rant on both his Twitter and Facebook accounts vilifying and belittling the death of Anne Frank while referencing a derogatory, misogynistic term used for white women – ‘BECKY’. Garnering immediate criticism from all sides of the political spectrum, Twitter immediately suspended both of his accounts.”

Kodzo is currently suspended from Twitter. Twitter didn’t immediately respond to this reporter’s request for comment.

GOP bill proposes extra measures to ensure noncitizens are unable to vote in federal elections

GOP members of both the U.S. House and Senate introduced a bill to add safeguards to ensure that non U.S. citizens who are already prohibited from voting in federal elections, do not do so. The bill seeks to amend the National Voter Registration Act to require documentary proof of United States citizenship to register to vote.

The Center Square reports that It would require states to obtain proof of citizenship – in person – when registering an individual to vote. Applicants would have to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote in person, when applying for a motor vehicle license, and when applying to vote by mail. The bill lists accepted citizenship documentation and requirements for voter registration agencies.

U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, led a coalition of 49 Republicans to introduce the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act in the U.S. House. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, with several cosponsors, introduced the same bill in the Senate.

Citing the border crisis and the greatest number of foreign nationals illegally entering the country in U.S. history, the measure’s supporters expressed alarm that instead of being deported, many are being registered to vote.

“There is currently an unprecedented and a clear and present danger to the integrity of our election system,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said. “And that is the threat of non-citizens and illegal aliens voting in our elections. In the last five and a half months or so, I’ve been to over 101 cities doing events all around the country in more than half the states. The first or second question that I’m asked in every public forum is about election security. Americans are deeply concerned about this. And it doesn’t matter where you live or whether you’re in a blue state or a red state, everyone’s concerned.”

Johnson blamed President Joe Biden and his administration’s policies for for what he described as widespread concern about election integrity.

“… we now have so many non-citizens in the country that if only one out of 100 of those voted, they would cast hundreds of thousands of votes,” the speaker added. “And since our elections are so razor thin in these days that we’re in, just a few precincts in a few states decide the makeup of Congress and who is elected to the White House. This is a dangerously high number, and it’s a great concern to millions and millions of Americans. It could obviously change the outcome of our elections, and this is not an empty threat or concern.”

It is already a federal crime for non-citizens to vote in a federal election. Despite this, Johnson said, “no current mechanism to ensure only those registering or voting are actually citizens. … If a nefarious actor wants to intervene in our elections, all they have to do is check a box on a form and sign their name. That’s it. That’s all that’s required. And there’s a very small chance that illegal would get caught [because] states do not have the election infrastructure in place to confirm what they’ve said.”

Johnson said noncitizens “can simply go to their local welfare office or the DMV and register to vote there,” adding that “states are currently prohibited from asking someone to prove that they’re a citizen when they use the federal voter registration form.”

He also gave examples of “a growing number of localities” that are “blurring the lines for non-citizens by allowing them to vote in municipal local elections.

“You might not know this, but non-citizens are voting,” he warned Americans. “Democrats have expressed a desire to turn on citizens and voters. That’s what this open border has been all about.”

Roy said the proposed SAVE Act “would thwart Democrat efforts to cement one-party rule by upholding and strengthening current law that permits only U.S. citizens to vote in Federal elections.”

Lee said the bill should “pass right away” and unanimously in both houses of Congress. “The only reason to oppose this … would be if you want noncitizens to vote.”

It also would create a new program requiring the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration to share information with state registration systems. States would be required to identify noncitizens attempting to register to vote by accessing data in DHS’ Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program and the SSA’s Social Security Number Verification Service. The information would be compared with data from state agencies that supply state identification cards or driver’s licenses.

The bill also would require states to remove non-citizens from existing voter rolls and increases federal penalties for those who register non-citizens to vote in federal elections.
