Midstate “Unite the Right” Arrestee Identified as Identity Evropa Member

Last month, 29-year-old Ian Hoffmann was at the tiki torch march on the University of Virginia Campus in Charlottesville the day before the Unite the Right Rally went down.  Now, a photo has emerged placing Hoffman with Identity Evropa members from Central Pennsylvania and Berks County and Eli Mosley, the group’s newest leader, at Donald Trump’s 100th-day festivities at the Harrisburg Farm Show.

After the Charlottesville race riot, Pennlive wrote:

A Harrisburg-area man has been arrested in Charlottesville, Va. amid the ongoing white nationalist rally that has turned violent.

Officials at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail confirmed that Ian Hoffman, 29, of Palmyra, is in custody on charges of assault and battery.

Details about Hoffman’s arrest were not immediately known, and jail officials referred a reporter to the Charlottesville Police Department and the Albemarle County Magistrate Court.

And earlier this month, we reported on Identity Evropa placing recruitment posters on Elizabethtown College’s and Millersville University’s campuses.  We reported:

White nationalists are off starting the school year by placing recruitment posters on the Millersville University and Elizabethtown College campuses.  These posters are part of a recruitment campaign by the white nationalist, alt-right group Identity Evropa. Pictures of the posters with prominent campus landmarks in the background are then distributed on Twitter using the “ProjectSiege” hashtag.  Last winter and spring, the organization targeted Kutztown UniversityPenn State Berks and York College of Pennsylvania.
