I think it's more of a concern that the SPLC will print your name than that the feds will come get you.In hindsight my question was a bit silly and I fully accept my chewing out by Anglin. His article is very detailed on this subject and thinking about it further, if no feds bothered to intimidate any Stormer donators years ago when Andrew was receiving money with actual credit card processors, then it is even more doubtful they will attempt to crack Monero money processing simply to get to us. Still, I guess all this talk of "white supremacy is the greatest threat to our democracy" is having me a little concerned about what they will try next to stop us.
But there are so many layers of plausible deniability here, that there is no way that the SPLC would print anyone's name.
"This random guy bought Monero so we think he's a Nazi" is not something even they would do, and if they did you could sue them.
The entire point of removing bitcoin was to protect the donor, so I am saying with confidence that there is no risk here. Well, statistically negligible risk - there is risk that when you're drinking a cup of coffee you could drop the mug and the ceramic could break and open an artery in your foot and you could pass out and bleed to death. Everything technically has risks.
The only possible risk I see is if someone tries to send Monero directly from an exchange to our address, which is why that is the only part of the article that uses red text. Definitely do not do that, because that will mean the exchange might know who you were sending it to. But even in that case, there is enough plausible deniability that even if the SPLC hacked the exchange (it would be illegal for the exchange to sell that data), they wouldn't be willing to print your name.
But definitely transfer the Monero out of the exchange before sending it.
