I've looked and I'm surprised there is no thread about Brother Nathanael. He's a member of ROCOR since 1987 so he was in the right team long before anyone from the current Orthosphere.

I've listened to this interview with him recently and it's a good one. Because he's a former Jew he's very red pill on a level that's comparable to EMJ.

I did.
The Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia has recently received repeated complaints about the activities of and statements made by a certain Nathanael (Kapner), who lives on the territory of the Western American Diocese, but has no relation to it.

The clergymen and laity of the Russian Church Abroad are hereby informed that the actions of Nathanael (Kapner) do not have the blessing of the Synod of Bishops.

Profoundly saddened by the state of his soul, we call upon Nathanael (Kapner) to refrain from posting on the Internet, to a life of repentance of peace in Christ, “where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all” (Colossians 3:11).

Still doesn’t say what Brother Nathanael needs to “repent” for, or why he doesn’t have “the blessing of the Synod of Bishops.”
 
Don’t know. But you can google the statement for yourself.

OK…

It doesn’t state what Brother Nathanael needs to “repent” from, or why he does not have the “blessing” of the Synod of B’nai B’rith Bishops.

Well he proports to represent the Church by his dress and commentary from what I have seen, and has no blessing to do so. you tend to see lots of folks speak for the Orthrodox Church yet have no authority. I would count him in that category, though he is pretty entertaining because he is such a goofy guy.

I saw him in Breckenridge about 2004. It was snowing like crazy and he was dancing and shaking his blinking red cross on the corner of a busy vehicle intersection. Thought this man was out of his mind and felt sorry for him. 10 years later he was enlightening me in his BroVideos.
 
He really does know how to stick it to (((them))), in that obnoxious, aggressive, abrasive way that Richard Nixon described jews as. Perhaps his jewish anti-jewish behavior, trolling, and truth spilling below-the-belt hits are too much for internationl jewry. Does jewry have the capacity or coercion to persuade the hierarchy of the Orthodox Church to issue a statement on him for this, when more and more Christians should be calling out the works of satan publicly? Not insinuating that the ROCOR is operating this statement on behalf of a pissed-off tractor, but just wondering why they would issue this on one man who is waking up a lot of people to the JQ.

I've heard some other things about his past there are less than glorious, but really who we were before we came to Christ really doesn't matter in many ways once the behaviors and actions change along with the beliefs.

And the reason is…?
I would take the time to answer, but you appear to be a sedevacantist who only argues in bad faith and makes baseless accusations against the Orthodox. If you really don’t know the answer to this question, I encourage you to spend more time reading the Fathers. You will find the answer in even the most basic books and writings about growth in the spiritual life.
