A SATANIC preacher who is believed to have inspired evil double-killer Danyal Hussein is still posting videos of “demonic” rituals on his YouTube channel.
Matthew Lawrence, who goes by the name EA Koetting, shares clips with titles such as “Evoking The Demons Of Human Freedom” and “Wield The Infernal Power Of The Demonic Gatekeepers” with his almost 90 thousand followers.
Koetting, from Utah, US, has previous convictions for drugs and weapon possession offences, and created the online forum Become A Living God, which Hussein, 19, was active on hours before his arrest.
Experts warned The Sun Online tech giants like YouTube are allowing this content to flourish and potentially spawning dozens of other Hussein-esque murderers.
Professor Matthew Feldman, director of the Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right, said: “We need a middle ground between censoring free speech online and doing nothing.”
Meanwhile, Dr Alan Mendoza, executive director of the Henry Jackson Society think tank told The Sun Online: “It is remarkable that these internet giants are failing in their duty to protect us.”
Hussein’s trial heard he made a “demonic” pact, committing to sacrificing women in return for money and power.
The pact, which was signed in blood, was made out to a demon named King Lucifuge Rofocale.
Koetting had cited the demon in his writings and described how blood sacrifices would allow you to become rich and powerful.
He also said that real-world action would be needed in order to complete the demonic pact.
Parts of the killer pledge to “sacrifice women” appear to have come from Koettings works and he is believed to have partly inspired the murders – with investigations after the trial finding he was an active member of his forums.
The American author has also associated himself with a group called Order of Nine Angles (O9A) and its US branch, Tempel ov Blood, which has been linked to a string of recent terrorism cases in Britain.
Hussein was sentenced at the Old Bailey to life in prison with a minimum term of 35 years.
Speaking to The Sun Online, Professor Feldman, director of the Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right, explained how Koetting’s brand to satanism includes “everything from curses, hexes, all the way to self-harm, mutilation, paedophilia and bestiality”.
And he warns that the threat of further radicalisation – and potentially more twisted killers like Hussein – are a major risk.
Governments need to get together and ban access to tech platforms if they don’t keep us safe, and ignore the howls of outrage from the internet giant
Dr Alan Mendoza
“Koetting’s books tell you how to kill someone, they tell you how to access terrorist handbooks, they teach you how sacrifices will make you rich and powerful,” the prof told The Sun Online.
“He has 88,000 followers on YouTube. If 1% of his followers become radicalised, that’s 880 Hussein’s. If just 0.1% of his followers are radicalised, that’s still 88 Hussein’s.”
Dr Mendoza said: “Extremist and harmful content is easily accessible online, and there is a reluctance from politicians to take on Big Tech.”
He added: “Governments need to get together and ban access to tech platforms if they don’t keep us safe, and ignore the howls of outrage from the internet giants.”
In one video on human sacrifice viewed almost 20,000 times, Koetting says: “When you destroy the victim there is a release, a massive explosion of power and energy.
“If you can harness that and push it towards a goal, it’s powerful beyond most other forms of magic. It’s the blackest magic without a doubt.”
Introducing himself on the forum, Hussein said: “I absolutely love EA and his work,” and said his “first-ever spell was a love spell” he had learned from him.
Some of Koetting’s texts, which he promotes on his YouTube account, openly encourage and discuss murder.
In one, which advises people to study terrorist methods, he writes: “Always remember the first rule of murder: never kill a person that you have reason to kill.”
This week, Koetting was finally removed from Facebook and Instagram after an outcry, but his YouTube channel remains active.
On Wednesday, October 27, he shared a two-hour live stream with his followers, titled LIVE CHAT: Wield The Infernal Power Of The Demonic Gatekeepers.
Feldman says Big Tech platforms such as YouTube have a responsibility to moderate accounts of a certain size if they promote hate or violence.
“Facebook has some 3bn accounts worldwide, social media has become a public sphere, whether we like it or not.
“When you hit say, 10k followers, moderators should be checking accounts to see if they are inciting violence or hate speech.
“We need a middle ground between censoring free speech online and doing nothing.”
Nick Lowles, chief executive of anti-fascism campaign group Hope Not Hate, said: “Danyal Hussein was influenced by a man associated with the Order of Nine Angles before he launched his attack.
“This is yet another reason why the Government must move to ban this Nazi-occultist group.
“Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman had their lives stolen by this murderer, and the ideology which propelled him. Their families’ lives have been devastated.”
