Mpls. law firm discovers partner runs a neo-Nazi record label

Aaron Davis’ second life operating a neo-Nazi-leaning record label has cost him his job as partner at a Minneapolis law firm.

City Pages writer Susan Du began the take-down of Davis and his Behold Barbarity Records last week with a cover story tying the intellectual-property attorney to his vile side gig.

On Monday, the firm told City Pages that Davis no longer works there. “Prior to the story, no one in the firm had any inclination regarding the allegations in the article,” Patterson Thuente said in a statement to City Pages.

Behold Barbarity has released an anti-Semitic T-shirt, a record titled “Behead the Semite,” and tracks by the band Aryanwulf titled “Kill the Jews” and “At the Dawn of a New Aryan Empire.” If you need further proof of the label’s leanings, just read the entire City Pages story.

We wrote about Behold Barbarity here last week, too, noting its status as a “hate music” company, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
