Fluff Pieces Every Week Day

Charlottesville hate marcher Andrew Dodson linked to furry fandom and neo-nazi hacker.
byPatchO'Furr

Heres a followup to previous coverage of furry fandoms tiny alt-right fringe (Altfurry). See: 1)Altfurry supports neo-nazi violence, with member Nathan Gate
on camera in Charlottesville. And 2)Furries resist hate, Altfurry Discord logs go public, Casey Hoerth removed by employers. This activity isnt being welcomed,
and this is the third furry name in a headline about it here. There are more to come.

Andrew Dodson at the Charlottesville Unite the Right hate rally, August 11-12

It turns out that a well circulated photo from the Charlottesville Unite The Right hate rally is of a known furry. Andrew Dodson is (or used to be) a furry
going by the names GoldenZoltan and Flukepup. This is his former FA page.(archive)More on that below. First lets look at how he came to be pictured.

The photo originally circulated with the events in this story:Arkansas-linked Charlottesville marcher identied, apologizes to those misidentied.
In a telephone interview with theArkansas Times,Dodson apologized for the trouble he caused the state and, specically, an Engineering professor at the
University of Arkansas who was misidentied as the person carrying a torch at a march last Friday night. The professor became the target of social media
vitriol.

In the article, Dodson explains that he want to Charlottesville because he wanted to see who these altright people were. He denies being a
Nazi, or a KKK, or a white supremacist. The story depicts him as pleading innocence.

But it reports Dodson lost his job, he said, because of participation in the rally. That explains why thedenial is a dubious aboutface. Read his
white supremacist remarks in this prior article in The Atlantic, by Daniel Lombroso (excerpts:)

White nationalists who gathered for the Unite the Right rally blame those who turned out to stop them. Theyre damn communists, says Andrew
Dodson, a 33-year-old inventor who calls himself a racial realist and says he is ghting to save white America.

Charlottesville is now the epicenter of the struggle for white America, Dodson told me. And just because Saturdays violence seemed to have been
contained, the alt-right will continue to give them hell in the city.

This is a phenomenal victory, he said.

Our ideas are so powerful, that the cops have to break the law and use violence against us to shut us down, he said in a text message after our initial
conversation. This shows just what an unbelievable threat we are to the system.

Andrew Dodson sounds like a pretty radicalized believer, wouldnt you say?

So how does one journey from furry fandom to neo-nazi hate?

Is it just random chance? Lets start with his Flukepup page on FurAfnity. His photo posted there(archive) has
comments from 2009 by his friend Naskatan, AKA Kekkus of Akkad or Kekus Lupus. Thats the altfurry whose
behavior after the Charlottesville rally got histwitter accountbanned. Kekkus mocked the murder of Heather Heyer
(his post was seen in the Flayrah article Alt-Furry suffers blowback after Alt-Right rally leads to death of citizen.)

Its one hint about hate festering for a long time. Lets look at many more.

Andrews account was banned from Furafnity. That doesnt make it clear if he is still active in the fandom.
According to tips I received, he moved from Arkansas to New England after the time it was active.

In Arkansas, Andrew was in a relationship with a fursuit maker named White Wolf. (Inthe 3rd commission on this
page youll see in the tags where she used his real name.) When they broke up she reported that he physically
abused her and stole from her, as described in her post on Livejournal. She obtained an order of protection because
of his abusive behavior.

This info is supported by tips from two more furries who visually identied his Charlottesville photo: one who used Andrew Dodsons friend
to live in Arkansas at the time, and this one who posted the photo with a public comment:

@AskMrOwlAgain

This guy. I know him. I know a lot about him. He poisoned a friend
of mine, and talked at length about wanting to kill cops.
9:33 PM - Aug 16, 2017

Ambien is White Wolfs ex-husband. He shared details about Andrew:

I knew him fairly well, he dated my ex and she complained about him all the time. I kinda considered him a casual friend before that. When the
restraining order was led against him in late 2009, that was the end of me speaking to him.

He went by the name goldenzoltan. I think he still has a LiveJournal. He was partially responsible for one of the big FA password leaks sometime
around 2006(?). Hes dated men and women in the fandom.

Andrew is, at best as I can describe, a sociopath. Id say he has some limited ability to feel empathy, but NO impulse control. I spoke up about it on
Twitter and contacted the reporter that interviewed him at the Atlantic because the facade that Drew maintains is completely fake. Hes really good at
getting people to trust him, and that makes him dangerous.

I sent questions and Ambien continued:

1) I had to force Andrew out of my house in 2009 because he wouldnt stop ranting about how much he hated cops and a bunch of crazy conspiracy
theory shit. I brought that up at the order of protection trial.

2) I dont have any details about the leak from FA, I dont know how he acquired the passwords, hes an electrical engineering major but not really the
coding type if I remember correctly.

3) Ive been told that he attends some conventions, I was informed about a year ago about him attending Furpocalypse. He lives in or near Boston, last I
heard.

4) There are dangerous people in the fandom and they can appear to be your friend.Andrew has sort of a frat boy kind of thing going on. Fun at parties
until he poisons someone with nightshade tea or sexually assaults someone (both are things that have actually occurred).

Lets dig more. Heres an old photobucket account for Goldenzoltan that haspics of a young skinny
Andrew,furry costuming,and a racist meme.

In 2010, he asked to be removed fromhis Wikifur page. He was listed as a member of Livejournal trolling
group Gayfaggotinc around 2005. The bottom of this Wikifur page says he was involved with hacking of
Furafnity that released a lot of passwords around then:

LJ user Golden Zoltan was banned from LJ for cross-posting said passwords. He was the one FA shit a
brick about, if Im not mistaken. March 2007

An archive of his banned Livejournalfrom 2005 conrms connections; his real name, school, and furry friends.

In 2006, Nitrogen the Cat posted to Livejournal about rooming with GoldenZoltan at Anthrocon. (I wonder if
Nitrogen ever got his $115 back?)

Comments on the post show the banned Goldenzoltan Livejournal account was replaced by Andrews new
one,dog0fwar.Heres dog0fwar posting about being banned from the Nazi Furs community. Andrews LJ
account was active until 2014.
Googling dog0fwar gets a hit for the neo-nazi website that was taken down in the aftermath of the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville.

Heres acomment by dog0fwar on the Livejournal of Weev, notorious neo-nazi hacker.

Andrew mentions hanging out with Weev,who is now the system administrator for The Daily Stormer.

Oh, really thats nice. Oh wait. I thought it said FLOWERS.

Google has Daily Stormer comments by dog0fwar. Andrew jokes about the murder here,and invites users tohang out with him in Dorchester MA in July 2017.
And he planned for alt-right marching in Boston in May 2017. I guess it was a lie when he said he wasin Charlottesville tosee who these alt-right people were.

I hope this leaves no doubt about the real Andrew Dodson. One of the furries who sent tips gave a nal thought:

I mainly share this since none of us are sure if hes still active in the fandom, due to the possibility that he could have fully changed identities in the
fandom after the move to New England. So we really would like to know if hes still in our midst or not so others can be made aware.
