Usually we dive right into the compiled information for whichever unlucky chud who landed on our radar for their involvement with the now-defunct “Anti-Antifa Chicago” Facebook page. This time, this article gets a content warning for having as much fascist crap on her sprawling internet presence as any 8chan board.
We take a deep look at anyone who follows and likes Anti-Antifa pages, (especially because in Chicago these idiots are outing people who aren’t even involved), being that Anti-Antifa is just code for pro-fascist. Often, we find a deeper, darker trail leading us to outing more white supremacists. Almost always, we find people organizing under the banner of Resist Marxism, Asastru Folk Assembly, or Anti-Communism. This leads us to Natasha Veronica Thompson.
has an extensive internet history of singing for crappy oi bands, but we’re only only going to focus on the main ones. Its really sad when fascists try to steal from art and music that we really like and is otherwise pretty cool, like punk, oi, ska and reggae. Reclaiming our art and spaces from fascism and colonialism is critical to our mutual survival. This is why we do this work. That being said, here is her shitty band list:
- Deadscene: Oi!/hardcore band. Deadscene was also known as Skullkrusher, Wardogs & The Revenge. The band changed names three times to avoid problems with promoters in the later years, rumors were that the local ARA crew discovered they were Neo-Nazi skins and got them booted from every venue across the city.
- King Jason and Sister Zion, one of Jason and Natasha Veronica Devine’s current projects where unsurprisingly, it appears that Natasha posits herself as a Zionist. They have a bandcamp who we will urge folks to contact to get them removed from the site for being fascists later on in this article.
A whole back and forth ensued among the commenters and the interviewer, where, eventually, the interviewer revealed that he and his wife had been doxxed by an ARA network presumably for giving a platform to Nazis. Natasha then admits that she admits she’s far-right and has gotten harassed by ARA before.
A literal google search of Bleach Battalion + Natasha turns up this gem from Buzzfile where she listed her own private information when she listed her crappy oi band as a business. We believe the address to be outdated, but it confirms her name.
How do we know she’s been deplatformed from YouTube? She talks about it on her private Instagram, Iron Wall, which posts on her public Pinterest of all places:
A closer zoom in realizes it’s the same image as this one, found through a separate internet search identifying the user as Natasha Battalion. ‘Anonymous’ aliases mean nothing when you post the same content across all of your social media and link to your real name in business reports, genius.
It seems innocuous, if a bit weird. Who wants to uhh… rock against communism? That is until you realize Rock Against Communism is a bonehead dog whistle for white supremacy and white power music. Here is what the Anti-Defamation League has to write about Rock Against Communism:
If there’s one thing we’ve noticed about Chicago’s Anti-Antifa members, it’s that they all really like Skrewdriver (which is a shit band, politics aside). Natasha Veronica Devine holding that flag, knows exactly what message she’s sending. Skrewdriver was an oi group that broke up, and upon reuniting morphed into a far right white nationalist Rock Against Communism music group. Skrewdriver was instrumental in the set up of Blood & Honour a neo-Nazi music promotion and political group. Blood & Honour has direct links to Combat 18, a neo-Nazi terrorist group.
Members of Combat 18 are barred from joining the British Prison Service and police. Yea, they’re responsible for many deaths of immigrants, people of color, and even other Combat 18 members. Much like the Oregon Republicans in the United States who accept help from militia members for security, Combat 18 used to run security for the British National Party.
There have been recent sightings of Combat 18 stickers in Chicago. Jonathan Argumedo and Sean Dolan, two other Anti-Antifa members we previously identified both had links Blood & Honour and Combat 18. Given this information, as well as Natasha’s proximity to Rock Against Communism, we suspect that Natasha, Jonathan, Sean Dolan and a few other members we will get to unmasking soon are all part of the same Combat 18/Blood & Honour cell, committing acts of vandalism and violence and harassment as well as operating the Anti-Antifa Chicago webpage.
In case Natasha Veronica Devine’s involvement in white nationalism was ambiguous before, her Instagram pretty well sums it up. Check out the “Alt-right records” shit logo among other things.
Same profile picture as her Facebook, same content as her Pinterest and Instagram, and same name as her pseudonyms and of course, mentions of the (can we really call it music?) projects we listed above. Natasha’s Fightwing account is also listed on Telegram, which for anyone unfamiliar, the platform is like Twitter but worse:
“Many of the far right’s loudest voices found themselves gravitating towards what appears to be their next digital home: an encrypted messaging app previously known as a haven for terrorist recruiters. Telegram is a platform that allows users to offer short, public-facing posts akin to a Twitter profile page. Its universe of users is much smaller, however. And its user setup makes it harder for one to grow a following”
-an article that platforms the far-right, so we won’t link to it.
Currently on her twitter, Natasha likes to talk about doing harm to the parents of a young child, even though she’s the mother of a similarly-aged child.
And I almost scheduled a visit to play a show in Austin. I'm glad I didn't go there and see this freak show, beat the parents and have to go to jail in Texas. I hear the jails are rough there… #clownworld https://t.co/80JmKTopPM

So what’s this Fightwing in her handle all about? It’s her attempt at building a neo-Nazi brand. It’s pathetic, really. Apparently her music tastes aren’t the only thing that’s stuck in the 90s. We’re not going to link to her site, as we don’t believe in platforming it, but bask for a moment with us in the glory of her using her real phone number as a direct contact for her white nationalist site:
How do we know it’s her real phone number though? We compared it to a search on Natasha Veronica Thompson’s real name (now Devine) through a publicly available database:
We reach the end point of our discovery of Natasha Veronica Devine, formerly Thompson. Her fascist and Zionist views are explicit in her her art projects which were easy enough to find by googling that crappy reggae band where she performs under the name “Sister Zion”
