Using aliases to hide their true identity, an Australian couple used a closed forum full of white supremacists to celebrate the death of a woman at the 2017 White Suprematist parade in Charlottesville.
Lisa and Justin Beulah were forced to apologize after being traced by ABC journalists and The Sydney Morning Herald as part of a joint survey on the use of the Discord chat platform.
The investigation revealed that newlyweds married under the monikers Brad Small and MsNatSocialist incited hatred and shared deeply offensive comments about Nazi Germany and the Charlottesville rally in August two years ago.
Lisa wrote about the death of Heather Heyer, who was killed when a car was deliberately dragged into a crowd of protesters, which the 32-year-old was a "fat lady" who could "save herself" if she lost a bit of weight.
"I don't give a shit. If that fat whore had lost some weight, she would have been saved. She would have died of obesity in a few years. It was cruel to be kind of euthanasia for the fat whore," he wrote.
Justin celebrated the attack by James Alex Fields Jr, the 21-year-old neo-Nazi who was sentenced to death last year.
"Friend, you guys literally changed the world," he wrote.
"Only with a demonstration … And a challenger to dodge."
During and after the time when the couple was posting on the bulletin board full of hatred, they were active members of the NSW section of the Young Citizens, revealed the investigation.
The report found that the couple joined the NSW branch as part of a plot to impose their views on the broader party.
It was reported that they were behind a motion to "support immigration from culturally compatible peoples and nations" who advocated "rigorous immigration controls for those who are not."
But later they resigned after being told to show the cause.
Talking to the ABC journalists, the couple claims to have changed their way of thinking and being sorry.
"What I said was wrong," said Lisa. "To be honest, I shouldn't expect forgiveness for the things I said. I feel utterly disgusted with myself."
They said they were no longer involved in any group of white supremacists online or in real life and explained how they were radicalized.
"(In) at the end of 2014-15 … I started reading extremist material online," said Justin. "If you were reading these things in 2015, they surely strengthened your opinions. It was then that the refugee crisis happened. This is when the terrorist attacks happened all the time, all over the world.
"Every hour of every day is hate. And I purposely filled my mind with as much human hatred as possible".
Lisa said she joined Discord after Justin invited her.
"I joined this group thinking it was like a right-wing politician. In my mind I was thinking like Tony Abbott. I thought of discussing conservative Christian values."
He said he "prepared the swastika cupcakes to fit" and shared the views of Adolf Hitler because "he was a Christian and believed (in) maintaining the country (Germany) as".
Messages on Discord were discovered by Unicorn Riot, a non-profit multimedia organization that released 770,000 messages from chat servers in March.
"Over 240,000 messages leaked from the main server, shared on the Discord chat platform, were obtained by Unicorn Riot and published in full as part of our Discord Leaks platform," they said.
"The leaked chats provide what is today the most intense glance behind the scenes of Identity Evropa, which is perhaps the most active fascist group in the United States today."
