A spokesperson for the white supremacist group Republic of Florida (ROF) told the Anti-Defamation League on Thursday, February 15, that Nikolas Cruz, the man charged with the previous day’s deadly shooting spree at a Parkland, Florida, high school, was associated with his group.
On Wednesday, February 14, Cruz, 19, a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, allegedly entered the school with an AR-15 and opened fire, killing at least 17 people and injuring 14 more. Cruz left the scene but was later captured by police and has been charged with premeditated murder.
After self-described ROF members claimed on the discussion forum 4chan that Cruz had also been a member, the Anti-Defamation League called the ROF hotline and spoke with an ROF member who identified himself as Jordan Jereb.
Jereb, based in Tallahassee, is believed to be the leader of ROF. In 2016, he was arrested on charges of threatening a staffer in the office of Florida Governor Rick Scott because he was allegedly angry at the staffer’s son.
Jereb said that Cruz was associated with ROF, having been “brought up” by another membe. Jereb added that Cruz had participated in one or more ROF training exercises in the Tallahassee area, carpooling with other ROF members from south Florida.
ROF has members in north and south Florida. The alt right white supremacist group borrows paramilitary concepts from the anti-government extremist militia movement (not itself a white supremacist movement). ROF describes itself as a “white civil rights organization fighting for white identitarian politics” and seeks to create a “white ethnostate” in Florida. Most ROF members are young and the group itself is only a few years old.
Jereb added that ROF had not ordered or wanted Cruz to do anything like the school shooting.
If Cruz’s role is confirmed, the Parkland school shooting would be the second school shooting by a white supremacist in the past two months. In December 2017, another young white supremacist, William Atchison, engaged in a shooting spree at a high school in northwest New Mexico, killing two students before shooting himself.

Already saw an article claiming ISIS is involved, so this is no surprise. Everything but the kitchen sink’s going into this one.
Their desperation is increasing exponentially.
That rof website is ROFL ridiculous. Check it out for a laugh!
Wonder if Rick McLaren met any Floridians while at Huntsville Prison…. and will they use the Seminole Nation like McLaren used to so-called “Washitaw”…
So, here is what we know so far—some dude some “white supremist” outfit claims is in their RoF group kills a bunch o’ kids including supposedly several Jews and Chabaders on Valentine’s Day in a county basically run by Talmudic Jews… And I thought Sandy Hook was ridiculous, false-flag-wise! Man, these folks (Chabad or not) are getting extremely desperate! And is it coming down to (ID politics-wise) the ultimate fight–Jews vs. Gentiles? (Note: By “Jews” I mean the Synagogue of Satan and by “Gentiles” I mean believers in Jesus Christ….but it could be broader than that.)
So how could he be the shooter when he was walking with a blond girl at the time? Are they going to say it was another Nikolas Cruz at the same school? Unfrigginbelievable….
