James Alex Fields Posted on Facebook as ‘Conscious Ovis Aries’ About Hitler, Trump: Reports

Charlottesville car attack suspect James Alex Fields appears to have posted on a now-deleted Facebook page in the name of “Conscious Ovis Aries” that shared a Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” sign, photo of Adolf Hitler as a baby, travel pictures of a building that looks like the Reichstag in Berlin, and other incendiary materials, according to reports in Buzzfeed and The New York Daily News.

Posts on the page have Nazi references and white supremacy symbology.

Parts of the page are still visible as screenshots on a web page archival site, Heavy found, and the URL of the Facebook page was James.Fields.9279 despite the moniker used. The screenshots are in Russian and one is in Dutch, which appears to be because the people who took them were speakers of those languages on Facebook – not because “Conscious Ovis Aries” wrote in those languages. Another screenshot of Fields’ mother’s Facebook page showed “Conscious Ovis Aries” on her friend list. It’s also posted by a user speaking Russian.

Some of the graphics on the screenshot purportedly of the Conscious Ovis Aries page.

One graphic posted by the page, according to the screenshot, is titled, “Europa bleeds.” The page’s handle refers to sheep.

Some of the posts, photos, and graphics shared by the page are visible on the screenshots, however, and they do match details known about Fields’ life. The page’s posts date back at least to 2014, and, in one, a friend was tagged who is from Florence, Kentucky. The page also liked an establishment in that community; James Alex Fields is from Florence, Kentucky. In a 2015 comment thread, the page referenced getting a uniform; Fields’ mother has written on Facebook that he went to boot camp that year. According to The Guardian, Fields served in the Army from August 2015 to December 2015.

Derek Weimer, his former history teacher, said that Fields was interested in Hitler and the Nazis for years.

“A lot of boys get interested in the Germans and Nazis because they’re interested in World War II,” the Kentucky teacher said. “But James took it to another level.” He wrote a report on Hitler as a high school student that was “beyond the pale,” the teacher added.

The page also posted a check in at an Ohio establishment; Fields moved to Ohio, where he lived with his mother, Samantha Bloom, according to Cincinnati.com and many other news reports. One photo shows a man who resembles Fields standing with a car that resembles the one authorities accuse Fields, 20, of using to ram into a crowd of counter protesters who had assembled against a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. However, one car has hood stripes, and the other does not.

Here’s a photo from the scene of the car ramming:

The page’s profile picture is a cat.

Here’s the photo montage that includes a well-known photo of baby Hitler.

Here’s the drawing that resembles Trump:

Witnesses said the car ramming appeared to be intentional, and some, including Republican Senator Ted Cruz, are calling for a domestic terrorism prosecution. The FBI has opened a civil rights investigation, and Fields is in custody on murder and other charges. A 32-year-old woman, Heather Heyer, died in the car ramming attack and 19 people were injured, CNN reported. President Trump condemned the attack and violence on “many sides,” which has led to widespread condemnation over his failure to call out white nationalists by name or to label the car ramming attack domestic terrorism. The white nationalist rally, which led to other clashes at the scene, was held in Charlottesville because white supremacists are angry about the planned removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in the city.

GettyRescue workers and medics tend to many people who were injured when a car plowed through a crowd of anti-facist counter-demonstrators marching through the downtown shopping district August 12, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia. The car plowed through the crowed following the shutdown of the “Unite the Right” rally by police after white nationalists, neo-Nazis and members of the “alt-right” and counter-protesters clashed near Lee Park, where a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee is slated to be removed.

Fields is being held “on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding and failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death,” according to CNN. Toledo Blade reported that Fields’ mother, Samantha Bloom, said she received a text from him that he was going to an “alt-right rally in Virginia.”

She told The Blade: “I thought it had something to do with [President] Trump. I try to stay out of his political views. I don’t get too involved.”

Heavy has reached out to multiple tagged friends on the page as well as relatives of Fields in an attempt to definitively confirm whether the page was his.

Buzzfeed reported that the page was “apparently” Fields’, and The Daily News reported that it was his page without explaining the verification process to get there. However, many other media outlets have not yet reported on the page. Buzzfeed reported, “On a Facebook page that appears to belong to Fields, photos included memes embraced by the alt right and some supporters of President Donald Trump, including Pepe the Frog and a portrait of a crowned Trump sitting on a throne.” Those images appear on the archived screenshots.

According to Buzzfeed, “The angular symbol in one image was identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as the Othala rune, a Norse symbol that was co-opted by the Nazis to promote their ideas of racial ‘purity.’ Another image shows a character from the animated series Archer, who is raised by a Nazi scientist and suggested to be a clone of Hitler.”

1st Amendment

Not to be validating anyone side of this tragic event but; The President swore and Oath in front of the American People. that sacred Oath hasn’t changed in hundreds of years. He swore to “Uphold the Constitution of the United States,” in part and this also means it’s historic events as well as all the citizens of this country by majority rule.

Many of us have forgotten what it means to be an American and what “Liberty” truly means. they have thrown away their freedom for security which is nothing but the beginning of tyranny. Many in this country educated and non-educated alike have forgotten their individual roles in our overall freedom and aren’t even aware of what the Constitution and Bill of Rights guarantees. I for one have not, I served this country and it people for 20 years in the US military.

Our Commander in Chief has a responsibility to uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights. The first amendment being; Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Two parties engaged in violent activity this sad day in our history, not one but two. Both being a minority, compared to the law abiding citizens of this country. The President made this very apparent. Both were at fault but it doesn’t excuse the violence the ensued over something which should have never happened from both perspectives. Was tolerance utilized by either faction under a lawful assembly, obviously not! As is stated, “there are two sides to every” story and phrase emphatically still rings truth.

There has been no lawful redress of grievances or petition to the government but there has been no lawful expectation or freedom of speech permitted by either factions of this tragic and avoidable incident. In perspective and in reality Constitutional Law was set aside for personal influence and gain. However no one gained anything at all, in fact people were killed and injured because of simple personal self-center interests. Was tolerance and respect of one an others beliefs practiced? Absolutely not rather perceived as right or wrong. Did either side remain neutral in the confrontation? Emphatically, NO!!!

Now we have a lawful Missouri Senator making public subversive and frankly outrageous, bigoted and racist statements, “hoping for the assassination of the President of the United States.” This is hatred, racism and bigotry at its worst, the same type of uncontrolled outburst, which caused the death of one and injury of 19 others. It’s inexcusable in terms of personal self control and rule of law. I don’t care if your black, white or asian, it inexcusable this Senator has individually verbally defined the meaning of racism and bigotry. Step down Senator and give way to another with personal self-control and positive non-racial moral vision.

Keeping in mind all the calls for love and kindness towards each other. It’s time to practice what you preach or are you truly a hypocrites. Set aside your own racism and bigotry first permanently, before you attempt to admonish others for the same. Practice the tolerance and ideology of loving one another, before engaging in such violence again. If one will not step aside, then do what is good and right, be the better and do so yourselves. Isn’t there enough insane violence in the world today without more being added over such stupidity and materialism. Which master do you serve, yourselves or something much greater. You condemn each other without the right. You defy even the very morale laws we are all aware of. Is your love, really” hate” disguised as something else? Have you all forgotten the Golden Rule, “do unto others, as you would have them do unto you?” This is the crux of the matter and is mirrored in the Constitution.

I’m truly sorry for the lose of life over something which is actually so trivial and unimportant to us overall. I’ve seen to much of it over my 20 years in the military and 60 years of life thru strife and struggle, when the easiest thing to do is the simplest, and this is to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” You need to ask yourself, “how evil are you really” and then listen
very closely to the answer from inside. Everyone who participated in the violence that very day needs to remember this your entire life, it might help to remind you of the truth.

You want to call yourselves true Americans, then start acting like it. Isn’t there enough strife and struggle in life without your personal addition? Try to live a “quiet life, working with your hands and minding your own business, it’s hard enough.

If the Federal Government hadn’t granted Nazi prisoners-of-war captured during World War II the option of remaining here in the US rather than deporting every one of them, the American Nazi Party likely wouldn’t have been founded. And if our Federal Government had enforced President Eisenhower’s 1952 Anti-Subversives Law instead of allowing subversives and anarchists to run amuck in the US, the influence of one of the world’s most evil dictators wouldn’t still be warping the minds of Americans, nor would our Christian country be overrun with Fascist Muslims seeking to destroy us. Nor would we have elected an anti-white racist Muslim as president in 2008 because Barack Obama wouldn’t have been eligible to run! And now that Radical imams are threatening to overthrow the US Government, NO MUSLIMS should be allowed to run for political office within the United States, but our leaders are such PC cowards, they won’t do a thing to stop them!

How delusional are you? This isn’t a christian country, our country does not (well at least it isn’t supposed to) base our laws or values on foolish fairy tales that advocate violence, bigotry, and hatred! Obama wasn’t anti-white and he is obviously not a muslim.

You and the people who believe in similar crazy nonsense are the real people that are ruining this country. You make America look like a damn joke.
