CUPON Hides Identity of Nazi Sympathizer Donor | G. Sonnenfeld

CUPON, the organization that has been fighting against the rights of Orthodox Jews in various locations, including Jackson, knowingly counts among its donors an avowed white supremacist and Nazi sympathizer.

Timothy Hale-Cusinelli, a man who is currently being prosecuted over his role in storming the US Capitol on January 6th, routinely showed his support and affinity for Nazi ideology and Adolf Hitler, even while working at his job as a US Army contractor. Hale-Cusinelli had a since-deleted YouTube channel named “Based Hermes” on which he would espouse racist and anti-Semitic ideology and expressed his support and enthusiasm for another Civil War.

Upon hearing of CUPON, Hale-Cusinelli apparently thought he found some friends, so much so that he donated to the group when they ran an online fundraiser organized by Eleanor Hannum (see screenshot below).

Now, one would think that an organization that claims to be against overdevelopment and is not anti-Semitic would disavow Hale-Cusinelli’s support and refuse his donation. So, did CUPON return his donation? No, they did not.

With Hale-Cusinelli being prosecuted by the Justice Department, someone in charge of the online fundraiser, likely Eleanor Hannum, changed the name of the donor from ‘Based Hermes’ – Hale Cusinelli’s pseudonym – to ‘Anonymous’. In other words, CUPON has no problem taking money from Nazis and won’t disavow them, but for PR purposes they will hide his identity as one of their donors.

Ms. Hannum, actions speak louder than words. You can say that CUPON isn’t anti-Semitic, you can claim that your own actions are not driven by anti-Semitic ideology. But your actions say otherwise. You don’t seem to mind having a literal Nazi wannabe donating to your causes. You haven’t refused or returned the donation – you just tried hiding where the donation came from.

Ms. Hannum, you’ve got some explaining to do.

  1. The many gifts given to the world by Jews is quite remarkable, considering the their relatively small number. Yet, polio, cancer, ALS and other plagues upon mankind have been fought with by many of the Jewish scientists and researchers–and in many cases very successfully.

    Jews are human beings and deserve to be treated so by the goy. They are very family oriented,very much devoted to the T-rah, the Talmud,and the many commentaries written by their sages on these holy works. Who among the world can deny the works written by the Almighty (HaShem) himself—certainly not I nor anyone else !!

    I as a goy have associated for almost twenty five years with the orthodox community of Lakewood to include weddings, bris, vorts, dinners, and in some cases Lavayes (funerals) which I do not like.

    Jew uphold high moral principles in their constant study of the T-rah or the old testament. I believe, G-D forbid, if the Orthodox community were to disappear from the earth–on the morrow of such a catastrophe the world sinks into into savagery and cannibalism never seen in the history of mankind.

    Such antisemities would inherit a world of evil, which they cannot envision.

    May I suggest to all Jews:

    1) B’vah’chah’shah. do More Talmud T-rah (MTT) !!!
    . 2) B’vah’chah’shah. do More Davvening (MD) !!!
    3) B’vah’chah’shah, do More Chesed (MC) !!!

    A goy,
    Gerry Mullen

  2. When will you begin to realize that its not just about “hating Jews” but disliking the Orthodox jewish cultures ie. Many Minyanim and Yeshivas on residential blocks in Lakewood NJ causing disturbances to others ie.Vehicle congestion,road rage etc.. Big difference people time to open your eyes a little and not believe everyone screaming anti semitism.

    • I don’t see how “only” hating Orthodox is somehow OK. That’s like saying I don’t hate all white people, just Mormons, with their schools and churches and lots of kids…

      It’s faith based hatred, plain and simple. Your own argument betrays you.

  3. Lead singer, Every public School in Jackson is on a residential block.we wouldn’t need basement shuls in residential neighborhoods if they let us build real shuls in commercialy zoned areas. Why can they build their communal places and we’re forced to gather in our houses in secret to learn and pray. They say they’d be fine with us moving in as last mg as we secretly practice our religion privately in our houses. But truth be told, they just don’t want us here.
