I, for one, am *shocked* that a person in a position of legal power and authority is a huge racist.

Online, Cicotte, under the moniker J Reuben Clark and the Twitter handle JReubenCIark, has expressed extreme positions on race, criminal justice and religion. Since-deleted tweets archived by anti-fascists reveal that he advocated various extreme positions including the summary imprisonment of Black Lives Matter protesters; vigilante violence against leftwing groups; and a punishment of execution for acts including performing gender reassignment surgery. The JReubenCIark account was also one of the earliest and most prominent accounts to promote Deseret nationalism on Twitter using hashtags like #DeseretNationalism and #DezNat. Deseret nationalists or DezNats are a loose association of rightwing Mormons. Previously they have been noted for harassing perceived enemies online, such as progressive Mormons, LGBTQ Mormons, former Mormons and political progressives. Some DezNats advocate the creation of a theocratic secessionist Mormon state, and some have proposed that this be a white ethnostate, a desire which is reminiscent of the proposals of some white nationalists for a white ethnostate in the Pacific north-west.ns. Previously they have been noted for harassing perceived enemies online, such as progressive Mormons, LGBTQ Mormons, former Mormons and political progressives. This guy wasn’t just playing around he seems pretty hardcore.

The Mormon church is racist, insular, and homophobic. It should be no surprise that racist, insular, homophobic right-wing extremists come from it. Their leaders cultivated Deznat.

>The JReubenCIark account was also one of the earliest and most prominent accounts to promote Deseret nationalism on Twitter using hashtags like #DeseretNationalism and #**DezNat.** Nice reference to the Nazis ya got there, bub. (Nationalsozialist = abbreviated to NatZi = Nazi) Crytofascism is so cringe. Anyone want to take a *wild* guess what which major political party this guy belongs to, or does it even need to be said anymore?
