- This paste is a clone of http://pastebin.com/NZ9mYtcj with more evidence and minor cleanup.
- See the post announcing the paste here: http://libcom.org.libcom.org/forums/general/ak-press-says-michael-schmidt-fascist-25092015
- Red.Black.Writings is Lucien van der Walt, and his continued apologetics for a close friend and co-author are shameful (although quite understandable).
- The evidence, strongest toward the top:
- 1. Wikipedia - Redblackwritings is the Wikipedia account that created the Lucien van der Walt article on Wikipedia, and wrote most of the article on him: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lucien_van_der_Walt&dir=prev&action=history
- ...it is obviously a sock puppet account on Wikipedia for Lucien; see the user contributions on his life, scholarship, and books:
- Redblackwritings contributed unsourced personal information about the working class background of Lucien van der Walt's family, as well as other info unlikely to be known by anyone but Lucien van der Walt himself. Other articles created or heavily edited by Redblackwritings are the two co-authored books:
- 2. Yahoo Groups - Lucien forwards email from red.black.writings@(yahoo.com? gmail.com?) to the anarchy_africa Yahoo Group: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/anarchy_africa/conversations/messages/3755
- 3. Scribd.com - 100 articles posted here under the redblackwritings username, 88 articles authored or co-authored by Lucien van der Walt and 12 by Zabalaza:
- 4. Docslide.us - Lucien's writings are uploaded under the username RedBlackWritings here:
- 5. Facebook - Redblack Writings is a very obvious sock puppet account on Facebook, with Lucien van der Walt and Zabalaza as the top two interests: https://www.facebook.com/redblack.writings
- 6. WordPress.com - Lucien writes posts for https://redblackwritings.wordpress.com and Anarkismo.net links directly to articles on that blog, with Lucien listed as the author: http://anarkismo.net/openwire?search_text=redblackwritings
- 7. Zabalaza network - Red black writings is closely associated with Zabalaza, specifically Lucien van der Walt's articles: http://zabalaza.net/?s=red+black+writings
- 8. Libcom.org - red.black.writings has only commented on the Schmidt subject and others related to Black Flame and admits to knowing Schmidt personally: https://libcom.org/user/1360327/track
- 9. Reddit - Redblackwritings (and Lucien's more honest pseudonyms in social media) have a history of cross-posting, copy-and-paste promotion. Here's an example from Reddit, announcing a Schmidt response:
- ...the full thread, and Redblackwriting's other posts on Reddit (all related to the Schmidt case):
- 10. YouTube - The redblackwritings YouTube account appears to be videos used in Lucien's classes: https://www.youtube.com/user/redblackwritings
- 11. Anarkismo.net: Some of Lucien's articles on Anarkismo are listed under the user Red and Black Action: http://www.anarkismo.net/article/27236
- 12. "Red and Black" - Though an obvious allusion to anarchism, it's an extremely frequent phrase cropping up in Lucien's writing and activism: http://saasha.net/category/organisations/other-impacts/red-and-black-forums/
