John Ramondetta, an electrician, a union member, was fired from a job site after being identified as “Jonny Monoxide”, a virulent hate monger known to the racist groups that make up the “alt-right”.
“Ramondetta has achieved a level of prominence on the far right as Johnny Monoxide, hosting podcasts promoting white supremacy, including “This Week in White Genocide.”
He wasn’t always aligned with the white nationalist movement, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups nationwide. In 2011, he was active in the Occupy Wall Street movement in Oakland and later attended a Black Lives Matter protest, the group said.
However, by 2016, Ramondetta had moved to the far right of the political spectrum, the center said. He was quoted as making anti-Semitic remarks and said in an interview with Red Ice Radio that Italians “have a natural racism toward Jewish people.”
