Statement of Vera Winterose Regarding Augustus Invictus

Last Monday I published an excerpt from the book Set the World on Fire. This excerpt concerned a conspiracy of several persons to wage a slander campaign against me in order drive me out of the right-wing for being a Satan-worshiping neo-Nazi, among other things. The main character of this article was Vera Winterose, who has admitted her role in the conspiracy and issued a public apology, which reads as follows:

In a recent article published by The Revolutionary Conservative, I was named as a subversive, and derogatory things were said against me because Augustus Invictus came into possession of some things I said about him in various group chats. I do not know who is responsible for the leak but I do regret that it occurred. It is a poor reflection of what we’re trying to do when everyone is screenshotting everyone else and spreading dirt and drama around. Without trust, we are doomed to failure. 

I can assure both him and anyone else reading this that anything I said was never meant for the public eye. I have not and will not say anything derogatory about him in public. In fact, I am completely removing myself from any sort of public presence in this movement. I do not want nor need a public presence any longer, thus I have nothing to gain from attacking Augustus or The Revolutionary Conservative. I can further state I wish him and his team well in their efforts to expand their reach and further the growth of the alt-right.

Hopefully this puts to rest any animus Augustus may bear toward me. I bear him none.


Vera Winterose

Because of this apology, I have removed her real name from the book and the article. We accept her apology and her departure from public life. This matter is now closed, and I encourage everyone to honor the agreement we have made.
