White Supremacist Jason Kessler Gets Scolded By Dad During Livestream

    Jason Kessler, the organizer behind last year’s violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was knee-deep into a live-streamed conversation about Jews with neo-Nazi former U.S. Senate candidate Patrick Little when disaster struck: he was interrupted by his angry father.

    It led them to commiserate about their money woes, a consequence of their hate campaigns.

    In the beginning of the video, a clip of which has been circulating around Twitter for about a month, Little is finishing up a thought on Israel as an off-screen voice jumps in.

    “Hey, you get out of my room,” it said.

    Kessler excused himself, saying he had a situation. “You’ve got a drunk roommate?” Little asked, bemused.

    “I’ve got someone who supports, uh, orthodox, Israeli…we’re at a cross hairs on that stuff,” Kessler responded.

    “I want this to stop,” the voice demanded. “This is my room, Jason, this is my room.”

    Little laughed as Kessler walked off screen. When he returned, the 34-year-old Kessler admitted he was living at home with his family. He blamed his father’s anger on account of the family’s affinity for the History Channel, with its “constant anti-German propaganda.”

    He said he’s stuck living with them as his legal bills mount.

    Little said he understood: He was live-streaming from a boat, his escape plan if he were to get evicted from his apartment. He turns the camera around, showing the audience his “baby,” which, he excitedly shared, fits three beds. Little’s tune changed when he admitted that he was going to start renting it to cover expenses, or else he’ll have to sell it at a loss to fund his company and create revenue.

    His bank account, he said, has been running “pretty low since the election.” He received 1.2% of the vote in the June primary, and since then has gone on a national “Name the Jew” tour trying to drum of support for a white “regional capital” in Idaho.
