  ‘It’s healing’: How former extremists are working together to undermine the far right There is a growing effort by reformed extremists who are working together to undermine the violent movements they once belonged to. While governments continue to struggle with extremist violence, former far-right and Islamist extremists who have seen the error of their ways are increasingly coming forward to play a more prominent role.“It’s great to see people are emerging and talking about this stuff rather than trying to deal with it alone and in silence,” said Tony McAleer, who was once part of the group White Aryan Resistance.

Harry Morton founded Pink Taco in 1999 when he was 18. He also purchased The Viper Room, where Joaquin Phoenix’s brother River Phoenix died of a drug overdose in 1993, in 2008. In a 2013 review of the infamous venue after it was reimagined, Variety‘s Whitney Friedlander wrote that “Morton and his team are finding ways to prove the club is still a central music destination in Los Angeles, while also adding some sleek, modern touches.”

Morton recently made headlines for purchasing the Elvis Presley estate in Beverly Hills for $25.5 million. According to the L.A. Times, the property had been previously owned by Morton’s father for about two years. The elder Morton sold the property back in 2014 for $14.5 million.
