Midtown Commons Residents Warned of Nazi Neighbor: Dustin Ray Hamby

Recently flyers describing the activities of Austin Nazi leader, Dustin Ray Hamby (aka Chef Goyardee) covered the interior of the Midtown Commons apartments located at 7211 Easy Wind Dr. as well as the windows of nearby businesses. 

Residents saw several dozen flyers on each floor of Hamby’s apartment building and learned of his role as a Network Directing Officer of Patriot Front. Hamby coordinated van rentals and AirBNB reservations for the Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, thus bearing significant responsibility for the death of antifascist martyr Heather Heyer and the serious injuries to dozens of others. It is important to note that Patriot Front is simply the rebranding of Vanguard America following this deadly attack by Vanguard member, James A. Fields.

Dustin Ray Hamby has been exposed and targeted by Central Texas antifascists before. He recently lost his job at Kome Sushi after management was made aware of his character and history. Hamby became vindictive, yelled at the manager, and later instructed his followers to leave slanderous reviews about the restaurant. The spurious reviews were subsequently deleted and all Hamby achieved was making future restaurant employment more difficult for him.

Nobody wants a racist, violent, drunk  coworker and any business that employs the Nazi Dustin Ray Hamby or his associates is sure to face a community boycott — at an absolute minimum. 

Hamby has also been named as a defendant in a lawsuit concerning Unite The Right, albeit under his alias “Chef Goyardee” before his true identity was revealed to the world. CenTex ARA entirely rejects participation in or cooperation with the “law” and holds no illusions the capitalist State will strike meaningful blows against a Fascist movement that reinforces their rule. Hamby’s own neighbors are far more likely to inflict reprisals against him than are the courts, especially now that other Midtown Commons residents know his identity. Reports of escalating actions against him would come as no surprise. 

All fascists and neo-nazis would do well to learn that there is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide in Texas. If they are afraid of publicly organizing events antifascists will come to them instead. They are far safer quitting their fascist activities, publicly naming and denouncing their leaders, and working to destroy their former organizations. Short of that there is no hope for them whatsoever.
