Joseph Von Nukem stood out in the photos from the Charlottesville Tiki Torch march in which participants thought Jews were replacing them.

Never forget that one of the Charlottesville Nazis killed an anti-racist protester, Heather Heyer.

Nukem is, however, being "replaced." He was a failure in life and just killed himself while facing trial for smuggling fentanyl across the southern border. Take note, Marsha Blackburn, it's a white American male Nazi on trial for smuggling fentanyl. Yeah, he was the sort of guy, from the sort of political party, that blames migrants for what they are doing.

The Daily Beast reports:

The 35-year-old skipped out on his first day of trial for a drug trafficking charge in Arizona on the morning of Jan. 30, according to court records. At the very moment a federal judge was issuing a warrant for his arrest, Von Nukem was actually still at his home in Missouri, where he had walked out in the snow behind the hay shed and shot himself.

The details were listed in an autopsy report obtained exclusively by The Daily Beast on Tuesday.

"Suicide notes were found at the scene, left for law enforcement and his children, however, handwriting was somewhat inconsistent," the coroner's report states.
Von Nukem gained notoriety for attending the Aug. 12, 2017 hate speech rally that aggressively revived a nativist movement in the United States. He glorified the violence, and researchers of domestic extremism suspect he was a key figure in a brutal beating of a black man that day.

Von Nukem's sudden death was initially reported by Molly Conger, an independent journalist in Charlottesville who has become a key anti-fascism researcher in the years since the rally shook the city. An obituary said Von Nukem left behind a wife and five children under nine. "Some people knew Ted and understood he was a different type of fellow and had different views of things," it noted.

Von Nukem was one of the men who attacked Deandre Harris in a parking garage and bragged about it. He was arrested in 2021 while entering the U.S. from Mexico and possessing 15kg of fentanyl pills in his car. The little shit admitted to being paid $215 to smuggle the deadly pills into the States. That's how little life meant to Teddy Landrum, I mean Joseph Von Nukem. He changed his name in 2012.

So, he must have liked Mexico. He was there for several months. That's odd coming from a piece of shit Nazi.

Von Nukem was a Trump supporter. At least he got to hear Trump 'both sides' Charlottesville after the deadly protest. It's as if he got a shoutout from his president. Yay for him. The only victims in this story are his five children, under the age of nine.

Rest in agony, Teddy.
