Lestat has dropped some of his Discord chat logs with Defango, a bombshell move which is sending ripples across the Net.
Perhaps predictably, Defango has claimed credit that he was the one who did this.
Maybe he’s right, but it’s beside the point. Who released the chat logs first does not change the contents of them, that’s the point of this story. Please provide a link to the more comprehensive Discord logs, we will check them out.
Defango has just been named a finalist for 2019 LARPer of the Year. The awards show will be streaming live on Saturday night from around 9pm EST on the Titus Frost channel. He is up against Mike Cernovich, Jerome Corsi and Steven Crowder for the title. A lot of time and audience participation went into determining the Final Four, congratulations to all who got nominated. There sure were some big contenders this year.
Cast your vote before 9pm EST Saturday 21st

The Latest Antics
Earlier this year, Lestat took over the Abel Danger channel.
Now we are seeing some of the behind the scenes machinations around that move.
We see YouTubers colluding with others to troll, money changing hands and specific instructions being given on who to attack and even more significantly, who not to attack – in this case, Defango’s cashed up compatriots MAGA Coalition and An Open Secret.
A YouTuber named FknFreddy is also revealed as a collaborator with this gang. This is ironic because he and his crew frequently rail against “Multi-Channel Networks” on YouTube, yet here they are revealed to be colluding with multiple other channels to co-ordinate attacks on group targets.
We see plans being made to attack rival YouTubers on their birthday – something that happened to me this year from the Sawyers.
Lestat immediately weaponized the Abel Danger channel to attack Thomas Schoenberger, whom he and Defango had both previously worked with
in at ShadowBox.
Lestat created logos for Shadow Box and titles for
[Update: Jan 8 2020 6:55am]
Lestat disagrees with the above characterization of these events. He is not part of any team and no-one is attacking Thomas Schoenberger. He didn’t take over the Abel Danger channel, he was given it; he didn’t weaponize this channel to attack TS, he hardly spoke about him, there were just a few videos there made by Bobby Sauerwald when he received the 66,000 subscriber channel as a gift; he designed logos for free and was never part of the ShadowBox organization. #YMMV.
Abel Danger was founded by David Squawkins and Field McConnell. They split and Squawkins ended up in partnership with Jason Goodman, Field ended up in jail, and Lestat ended up taking over the 66,000 subscriber YouTube channel Abel Danger – already down to 58,000 subs.
Field McConnell from Abel Danger has teamed up with Timothy Charles Holmseth, who has been publicly praised by Robert David Steele. See Tracking the Leopard Meroz’s great article on these characters:
Agent19 just did an excellent (and very disturbing) video on these men and their “Children’s Crusade”:
Holmseth, Steele, Defango, David Seaman and Devin Nunes have all been represented by attorney Steven Biss. Jason Goodman recently accused Biss and his wife Tanya Cornwell of all kinds of heinous activity in his lawsuit with Robert David Steele in the Eastern District of Virginia.
Here is a copy/paste of their Discord chat logs. Emphasis ours. At the end of the chat we will offer analysis and share some other information that has come to light as a result of this drop.

Pièce de Résistance
“Anthony” is believed to be Anthony Khamsei, CEO of Resistance. He’s a cyber-security expert running a company specializing in “complex online threats” – a Swedish version of ShadowBox? Mr Khamsei is one of those guys who’ll happily tell you how humble he is on his personal bio then brag about his MENSA membership:
You will see from the Discord log that Defango was asking Lestat to target troll attacks on Ian Balina, an ICO influencer. This was a business relationship of Anthony’s that went sour:
Note the irony of the last statement – to prevent toxic, shameless characters from giving blockchain a bad name, his plan is to hire said characters and employ them in said actions.
No-one in his team would ever manipulate social media in such a way. They’re not here to create ‘fake news’. Just troll videos:
And The Rest…
Others have come forward to respond to the Lestat-Defango Discord
ian drop with further evidence of their own (some of it comes from earlier times and may have been posted before):
This screenshot was before Lestat took over the Abel Danger YouTube channel. The “huge responsibility” Lestat is referring to is the group’s mission to attack Thomas Schoenberger.
We hope that others will be inspired to come forward with their own screenshots, chat logs, and other evidence of what has really been going on with these LARPwars.
Sounds like there may be even more to come, tune in to SDNY.org for updates
