Racioppi has been an organizer with Resist Marxism since they were founded in the Fall of 2017 by Kyle “Based Stickman” Chapman. He attended Resist Marxism’s August 4, 2018 rally in Providence, where he tackled a protester (captured on video). Resist Marxism rebranded itself as Super Happy Fun America and Racioppi signed on as an organizer of the Straight Pride parade Aug. 31, 2019. According to the Boston Globe, the parade would “…showcase speakers including Milo Yiannopoulos, a former editor at Breitbart, the alt-right website, who has been banned from Facebook and Twitter for hate speech.” (August 29, 2019). Despite the assertion that they are not anti-LGBTQ the speakers at the Straight Pride Rally were consistently anti-gay and transphobic.

July 1, 2020: Racioppi was removed from the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Cannabis Reform Coalition due to his involvement with white supremacist groups. Click here for the full letter from the MASSCANN Board, highlights are below:
While MassCann respects free speech and rights of affiliation, the values of those involved with the protest in Boston on Saturday were diametrically opposed to what the Board felt to be the standing mission of the organization. … MassCann, and its Board, wish to make clear that there will be zero tolerance for any bigotry, hatred or prejudice of any kind within the organization and will issue a formal resolution after its next meeting to that effect. … Fundamentally, as affirmed in the statement released by the Board on June 14th, MassCann vehemently reasserts its support for the Black Lives Matter movement. This is a statement we feel demands more than words on a page, and we commit to making that structural change going forward for the betterment of the cannabis community.
Racioppi is a student at New England Law. In October 2020 students at New England Law Boston sent a complaint to the American Bar Association. The substance of their complaint is that President John O’Brien and the Board of Trustees created and support “an environment at New England Law Boston of “fear of retaliation, discrimination, and harassment of students”.” Included in their documented list of complaints is the fact that because of Racioppi’s presence on campus students do not feel safe, identifying the following as reasons for fear: “founding and organizing an anti-LGBTQ white supremacist organization, for his close connections to many other white supremacist and Neo-Nazi groups, and posts online depicting hatred and violence.” Click here to read the entire complaint
