Terre Haute, Ind: Matthew Heimbach, American white nationalist leader, working at Thyssenkrupp Presta facility

Indiana comrades have confirmed that Matthew Heimbach is working at a Thyssenkrupp Presta facility in Terre Haute, Indiana, as reported by Chicago Free Media collective:

There are so many things to know about Heimbach and why his neo-nazi ideology is a threat to any community he encroaches. He’s been around the white nationalist movement for over a decade, after he started the White Student Union at his college in Maryland in 2012 and the hits just keep coming:

Heimbach founded Traditionalist Workers Party, a hate group. The group imploded when Matt was caught cheating on his wife Brooke with her stepmother, Jessica, who is the wife of the Party’s co-founder, also named Matt. When Heimbach was caught in a flagante delicto with his lover, he attacked Brooke and Matt Parrott in front of Heimbach and Brooke’s children. [reported multiple places, including WaPo]

Heimbach helped organize the deadly ‘Unite the Right’ white supremacist rally in Charlottesville 2017, where Heather Heyer was murdered and dozens of people were injured after someone [who believes the same things Heimbach does] drove his car into a crowd. Heimbach and the other neo-nazi organizers were found guilty in a civil trial, to the tune of $25 million in damages in 2021. The driver was sentenced to life in prison.

Heimbach was one of the dozens of neo-nazis who attended Richard Spencer’s speech at Michigan State University in 2018. He attempted to attack multiple people who were protesting white nationalism.

Heimbach is the main voice for the internet radio show called National Bolshevik Radio, where he works with “George Eckhart” [you may remember George Eckhart mentioned in our expose of Caleb Dane Rose, a member of white nationalist group Patriot Front, yet another fascist organization]

Heimbach is currently trying to relaunch Traditionalist Workers Party as a National Bolshevik organization, per his own words. Below, he’s captured screaming at reporters in defense of James Alex Fields in front of the Charlottesville General Courthouse on August 14, 2017. Link to play video is here, taken from Newsy.com

Money must be tight and funding running dry as Heimbach is now working at Thyssenkrupp Presta facility in Terre Haute, as noticed by an eagle-eyed comrade. It is unknown how long he has been there as well as what he said during his hiring interview.

Nick Fuentes owns a new apartment building in Berwyn that has questionably legal filing paperwork & provides a potential opportunity for tenants to withhold rent without consequence

 

Upon first glance, this Berwyn, Illinois residence doesn’t seem particularly noteworthy. Looks like a three flat with nice windows on the top. Quiet suburban street about 33 minutes from Chicago via car, but quicker by Metra commuter train from the LaVergne stop or on the CTA from the Oak Park Blue Stop (towards O’Hare). However, if you’ve heard of white supremacist Holocaust denier & shameless grifter Nick Joseph Fuentes, his America First brand, and his followers, known as Groypers, you’ll be keenly interested in this address, as it’s his residence as well as rental property.

[Author’s note: By virtue of Nick being a social commentator (we’re using that term very loosely lol), he is a public figure and therefore exempted from the expectations of privacy with regard to his home address and contact information that regular people (even Nazis) are afforded.]

If you don’t know who Nick Fuentes is, fortunately a lot of mainstream news articles, like the ones from Salon and Mother Jones can answer that:

 

tl;dr? Nicholas Joseph Fuentes, at age 23, has been a white nationalist grifter since before Charlottesville, making his living via donations from grown-ass low-intelligence internet chuds who think he’s the most insightful political voice since the Daily Stormer. He’s from the Chicago suburb LaGrange, where until recently, he lived with his parents. We wrote about him years ago (click through for the full dossiers and threads):

Nick Fuentes, The Zoomer Nazi, Living in LaGrange Park, IL

Previously, his news presence included how he was too scared to attend Boston University as a legacy student because of his participation in Charlottesville. Too bad for us the moving to AL didn’t work out.

Nick collaborated and worked closley with other known white nationalist pundits including Unite the Right architects Richard Spencer of now-defunct racist National Policy Institute and Patrick Casey, former CEO of hate group Identity Evropa/American Identity Movement (IE/AmIM), as well as Milo Yiannopoulos, now a conversion therapy graduate involved in the militant anti-gay “trad cath” movement.

Comrades at the now-defunct research and direct action crew Panic! in the Discord collective also posted about him:

and

along with many, many well-respected researchers over the years:

Patrick Casey publicly left America First, after refusing to attend Nick Fuentes’s America First PAC claiming it was a fed trap. More on that split and its ripple effects (if you want) on video here (CN for hate speech) and also explained by comrades at Angry White Men blog.

Currently, a traditional Catholic Christian fascist (Christo-fascist) coalition is coalescing, gaining some momentum and working with Fuentes to recruit his Groyper followers to their extreme right cause, as explored by researcher Ben Lorber in Salon.

How do we know Nick moved out of his parents’ basement and purchased his own apartment building? During a feud with one of his supporters about celibacy, he posted about it (archived here) on telegram:

Behold, the  apartment building in question, which is located at 1826 Home Ave, Berwyn IL, 60402:

Remember Nick Stiso? The Chicago Nazi punk who won’t f*ck off is on TikTok

It’s been a minute but does anyone happen to remember Proud Boy, “Anti-Antifa” Nazi punk and former Patriot Front member Nick Stiso? We don’t blame you if you don’t.

Bad news however is that this Nazi punk who won’t fuck off is back again. This time he is out harassing veterans on TikTok. As antifascists, we do not support US imperialism and applaud most critiques of the US/NATO war machine, except for Nick Stiso. He can jump in the lake. He has been posting video after video harassing LGBTQ people and women in the military. Ironically, it appears that Nick in fact never finished boot camp and was kicked out for behavioral issues. So much for being a “vet.” This comes as a surprise to no one if you look into his long string of behavioral outbursts and temper tantrums. If you feel like reporting him for harassment & blocking him, this is his TikTok.

Nick’s profile contains video after video of him arguing senselessly with commenters and delivering baseless attacks against women. Sad to say but this pattern of behavior is not new for Nick.

Nicholas John Stiso: Patriot Front Member and Current Chicago Proud Boy

Included in this rant is the following video, where Nick tells a sexual assault survivor:
“No, you’re a victim. Survivors fight back and defend themselves. You’re a victim. You always have been and you always will be. I don’t care what you went through. I don’t give a shit.”

Of course, Nick is a coward who keeps deleting his own misogynistic rape apologist videos and who harasses and reports women’s video’s on TikTok, so we have republished it here for all to see.

DarthBarbie vs. Stiso1

We’re familiar with Nick Stiso, having identified him as a member of white nationalist group Patriot Front during the 2018 Conor Ryan/Smiter/Francis IL years, before Conor moved to Colorado and started working for ESI Bodyguard School. Nick joined the local 1488 skin scene with Jon “Heathen” Argumedo and became a member of the Anti-Antifa crew, which we know just means pro-fascist. After that, Nick became a member of the Chicago chapter of the Proud Boys before their President Trigger Tom Frederick Christensen of Chicago IL was sentenced to a jail for stabbing an antifascist. Previously, Trigger Tom got the chapter doxxed by having them all star in a remake of the Beastie Boys “Sabotage” music video, where the credits included their real names and then posting the video on YouTube. Sadly, Nick was not invited to the big screen. Here, Nick rambles about his beliefs and Tom’s attack in 2019. The jokes, well, they write themselves.

Neo-Nazi Nathaniel Joshua Leavitt aka Clarke MO: Patriot Front Member Residing in Springfield, Missouri

Nathaniel’s Neo-Nazi sticker collection.

Special thanks to Utah161 for their assistance with this piece.

Background: What is Patriot Front?

Patriot Front was founded in the aftermath of 2017’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. James Alex Fields, the Nazi who drove his car into the crowd, killed Heather Heyer and injured dozens of others, marched at the rally with Thomas Rousseau of Vanguard America. Soon after, Rousseau formed Patriot Front as a splinter group of Vanguard America. The then-teenage founder, Thomas Rousseau, seized membership and assets of Vanguard America and rebranded his group as Patriot Front.

While the organization uses red, white, and blue patriotic imagery, Patriot Front is unambiguously white nationalist, stating that “Nationhood cannot be bestowed upon those who are not of the founding [white] stock of our people.” The organization is also fascist, an early text was titled “American Fascist Manifesto”, and involves Neo-Nazis within its ranks. Since 2017, Patriot Front has also held “flash mob” events, where they are easily spotted in their “uniform” of khaki pants, polo shirts, ball caps, and white gaiter masks, while carrying American flags, smoke bombs or other props. At these events, their uniformed members will unload from the back of a rented U-Haul or Penske box truck, then briefly march along their planned route through the city, usually at night when there are few bystanders. The purpose of these marches is to generate footage for a few minutes of flashy recruitment videos for their social media channels. As well as holding flash rallies featuring masked participants, Patriot Front regularly spreads propaganda in the form of stickers, banners, and stencil graffiti. Patriot Front’s goal is often intimidation–for example, when it targets synagogues with propaganda for the racist group. Following 2020’s mass anti-racist protests and uprisings, Patriot Front has increasingly targeted Black Lives Matter and racial justice murals for defacement. Patriot Front does this both to threaten its perceived enemies and to build notoriety for the organization. Today, Patriot Front is one of the most active distributors of racist and antisemitic propaganda in the country, both online and via fliers, stickers, and banners. According to their own manifesto, the group does not allow women to join and is actively working to create a whites-only ethnostate.

On January 21 2022, as Patriot Front was attempting to march at the anti-abortion protest in DC, independent media outlet Unicorn Riot released 500GB of Patriot Front’s unaltered internal communications. The leaks include “private, unedited videos and direct messages reveal a campaign to organize acts of racial hatred while indoctrinating teenagers into national socialism (Nazism).”

The full Patriot Front communications, photos, and videos are hosted on Unicorn Riot’s website. The January 2022 leaks of Patriot Front’s inner workings, white supremacist rhetoric, connections to the US military, and attempts to infiltrate mainstream conservative movements have been published widely in national media outlets [1, 2, 3, 4, 5].

Activities of Patriot Front Member “Clarke – MO” aka Nathaniel Joshua Leavitt
First, do note that once members are granted access to the Patriot Front internal communications server, they choose a false name for themselves. That name corresponds with the state they live and their title, if applicable. In Patriot Front servers, Nathaniel Leavitt is known as “Clarke MO @PF-256712“. Further, the different areas where Patriot Front is active are referred to as networks. Clarke is a member of Network 13, abbreviated as NW13.

In Patriot Front’s Rocketchat he mentions putting up stickers in Springfield, Missouri rather frequently[6].


We also know that he has put up stickers in Ozark and Sequiota Park [7].


Nathaniel was in attendance for Patriot Front’s March on December 4th at the National Mall in Washington DC because he coordinated being picked up by “Leo MO” [8]. After the march,  “Mark MO” aka Ian Fletcher sends Nathaniel a photo in front of Patriot Front’s then re-decorated “hate bus,” which was used to transport many members from Missouri to Washington DC [9]. Nathaniel is pictured in the photo, on the right.


Compared to other photographs obtained during our open source intelligence research, we are able to positively confirm that Clarke MO is Nathaniel Leavitt of Springfield, Missouri.

Further, the different areas where Patriot Front is active are referred to as networks. Ian is a member of Network 13, abbreviated as NW13. Ian used Patriot Front stencils and spray paint to promote Neo-Nazi Patriot Front iconography in and around Kansas City, MO. He shares the types of paint he uses for vandalizing murals and spray-painting white nationalist imagery [6]:

In fact, in the Unicorn Riot Vault, we find an image of Ian Fletcher aka “Mark – MO” with graffiti that he and several others (including Logan Plank aka “Clarke IL” and Nathaniel Leavitt aka “Clarke MO”) put up in Kansas City, MO. He also appears in several of the videos in the vault putting up Patriot Front Graffiti.

Patriot Front member Conor James Ryan of Thornton, CO, working at Executive Security International, formerly in Chicago & suburbs

Who is Patriot Front?

On June 11, 2022, American neo-nazi group Patriot Front recently made international news for the mass arrest of 31 members and their commander Thomas Ryan Rousseau in Coeur d’Alene, ID, ahead of a gay pride event. Flagpoles, shields, shin guards and action plans were confiscated from the UHaul that the fascist group members had been riding in the cargo section. All 31 men were charged with conspiracy to riot and bailed out by the following day. Joshua Plotner of Craigmont, ID paid more than $2,200 to bail out at least seven fascists, per local news.

We’re not posting the copaganda here nor are we celebrating state involvement. However, the articles, images, and information are available with a quick internet search.

For background context on the hate group and its beliefs, Thomas Rousseau formed Patriot Front in the aftermath of 2017’s deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA. The fascist who drove his car into the crowd, killing Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of others, carried a shield and marched at the rally alongside Thomas Rousseau then of Vanguard America, a similar neo-Nazi group. For more information on James Alex Fields, click here. Soon after, Rousseau formed Patriot Front as a splinter of Vanguard America. In fact, Thomas kept the Vanguard America website (BloodandSoil dot org) and used it as Patriot Front’s internal communication hub after Charlottesville throughout 2018, until changing it to appeal to a more mainstream audience. Do note that the “blood and soil” reference, which has been taken directly from WWII Nazi propaganda, was chanted by white supremacists in Charlottesville at the torchlight march, along with “Jews will not replace us.” The Atlantic unpacks the levels of hatred and what it means to be in struggle against this violence.

While Patriot Front uses red, white, and blue patriotic imagery, the organization is unambiguously neo-Nazi/neo-fascist, their rhetoric stating that “Nationhood cannot be bestowed upon those who are not of the founding [white] stock of our people.” The organization is also fascist, an early text was titled “American Fascist Manifesto”, and involves neo-Nazis within its ranks. Since 2017, Patriot Front has also held “flash mob” events, where they are easily spotted in their uniform of khaki pants, polo shirts, ball caps, and white gaiter masks, and carrying American flags, smoke bombs or other props. At these events, their uniformed members will unload from the back of a rented U-Haul or Penske box truck, then briefly march along their planned route through the city, usually when there are few bystanders. The purpose of these marches is to generate footage for a few minutes of flashy recruitment videos for their social media channels. As well as holding flash rallies featuring masked participants, Patriot Front regularly spreads propaganda in the form of stickers, banners, and stencil graffiti. Patriot Front’s goal is often intimidation as well as recruitment of new members when members target synagogues, murals, and other public spaces with propaganda, which they refer to as activism. As commander, Thomas sets the activism quota, x amount of stickerings per member per week, x amount of banner drops, x amount of stenciling. Network Directors help carry out the required missions and with Thomas’s support plan logistics for larger mural defacements. Members are required to take pictures of their activism and post it to their internal communication server. Patriot Front members must pay full price for the stickers and stencils used for banner making or public vandalism. Members purchase propaganda materials from Thomas, the person who sets the activism quotas. Thomas does not hold employment outside of Patriot Front commander. Today, Patriot Front is one of the most active distributors of racist and antisemitic propaganda in the country, both online and via fliers, stickers, and banners. Per its manifesto, the group does not allow women to join and is actively working to create a whites-only ethnostate.

On January 21 2022, as Patriot Front was attempting to march at the anti-abortion protest in DC, independent media outlet Unicorn Riot released 500GB of Patriot Front’s unaltered internal communications.

The leaks include “private, unedited videos and direct messages reveal a campaign to organize acts of racial hatred while indoctrinating teenagers into national socialism (Nazism).” The full Patriot Front communications, photos and videos are hosted on Unicorn Riot’s website. Previous to this year’s leaks, Patriot Front was infiltrated in 2018 and those chat logs were leaked as well. For all of the leaked internal communications from 2017 to 2021, see the Unicorn Riot Vault server.

The January 2022 leaks of Patriot Front’s inner workings, white supremacist rhetoric, connections to the US military, and attempts to infiltrate mainstream conservative movements have been published widely in national media outlets.

 

For more information, see the full articles from The Guardian, Huffington Post, NPR military story, Ars Technica, NPR coordinated hate messages story and Vice. Following 2020’s mass anti-cop, anti-racism protests and rebellion, Patriot Front has increasingly targeted Black Lives Matter and racial justice murals for defacement. Patriot Front does this both to threaten its perceived enemies and to build notoriety for the organization. Due to the leaks, Rousseau and Patriot Front members have been concretely connected to multiple interstate attacks on Black Lives Matter, gay pride, and other progressive examples of public art: defacing and otherwise removing the originals and covering them with their own messages of hate in in IL, MO, KY, IN, MI, WA, OR, PA, NC, and RI, among others.

Conor James Ryan aka Smiter IL/Francis IL/Francis CO of Thornton, CO, employed by Executive Security International as a private investigator

[Editor’s note: The pictures of Conor in the above gallery can be found at the following links: Northern Idaho News 2022, Unicorn Riot leak 2018, Richard Spencer at MSU 2018, 2021 Training Camp, 2021 March Medic & LinkedIn 2022]

Conor James Ryan of Thornton CO, formally rejoined Patriot Front for the third time in December 2021 after performing the role of a medic at their ill-fated DC march on December 4, 2021. At that march, whispers tell that the neo-Nazi transportation from their march and back to their camp was undriveable. Over 100 Patriot Front members were stranded at their pick-up location and then at their meet-up point, their personal vehicles were damaged and unable to transport them back to their camp.

It’s important to note that the fascists have a policy that once members are granted access to the Patriot Front internal communications server, they choose a false name for themselves. That name corresponds with the state they live and their title, if applicable. In Patriot Front’s earlier years, they had a lax naming convention policy, allowing members to customize their handle. After the first leaks, Thomas homogenized membership name options, recycling a list of white male first names for anonymity and uniformity among members and network chapters in the organization.

Previous to last December, Conor was a member of the hate group after it rebranded post-Charlottesville in 2017, then he left in 2018. Conor rejoined in 2018 from 2020, when he retired from a leadership position in IL and resigned. He mentioned his contact with the FBI several times. Conor has previously used Smiter-IL and Francis IL as his identifier within Patriot Front internal communications, some of which are hosted on Unicorn Riot. He now goes by Francis CO.

Conor’s 2021 interview notes are below, proving that Conor was known as Francis IL, and outlining his past involvements:

Then Conor/Francis IL’s dedication and investigatory skill set is confirmed by Ben CO to Thomas a few days later. Ben CO recommends Conor rejoin the hate group. He also notes Conor has a professional LinkedIn, presumably for his job.

(Sidebar: Patriot Front Network Director [ND] Ben CO’s real name is Nathan Brenner and he lives in Louisville, CO.

Nathan was arrested with Conor in Coeur d’Alene, as noted by comrades at CO Springs Anti-Fascists and archived here)

Additionally, as network leadership is responsible for managing their chapters, directors typically discuss circumstances amongst themselves. The initials for their positions are indicated in front of their moniker. Directors, Scribes and PCs direct message one another about Conor’s re-entry, making some of Conor’s personal details public knowledge. First it becomes known that Francis IL moved to Colorado, as Jason, the network scribe, is checking on a former member from IL with the UT-area network director.

Further internal discussions reveal that Conor as Francis IL was the Network Direct (ND), or chapter leader, for Illinois before Anthony IL, who has since left the organization.

During his tenure as IL Network Director Francis, Conor didn’t hesitate to enforce his own standards for his men, including former member James IL. To the Utah network director, Conor confirms his previous involvement and leadership role:

In the DMs, interviewers share private details about Conor’s life, including the industry in which he works

 

From there, we located Conor’s employer, bolstered by the fact that the his fellow fascists discussed his personal LinkedIn as well as his industry:

Interestingly, Conor’s LinkedIn profile is no longer available possibly due to quick deletion after being bailed out from the Idaho jail. Fortunately, we captured a version of the profile. And then we compare face pics, especially zooming in on his very particular ear shape:

It’s a match. If his LinkedIn is accurate, Conor Ryan works for Executive Security International (aka ESI Bodyguard School) out of Grand Junction, CO. Conor mentions in his Patriot Front interviews that he is broke as a joke and that money was a reason he left the organization in 2020. It is unclear if he still works as a Certified Protection Specialist after being arrested in ID with a cargo hold’s worth of neo-Nazis but we’re definitely interested in finding out. [Editors note: The pictures in the gallery can be found at the following links: Unicorn Riot leak 2018, Northern Idaho News, & LinkedIn]

 

Executive Security International (ESI) offers private security training classes and certificates, and appears to have an inclusive, multicultural corporate identity which must get under Conor’s skin to no end. While it’s unclear which classes Conor has taken, Conor spoke about his investigator skills with his interviewers when he was reapplying to Patriot Front. Conor shared that with regard to his “security background, [Conor] took some crazy course last summer learning how to follow people, know if you’re being followed, do secret service type work for people, do surveillance, plan ops etc. [He said that] In a lot of ways PF gave him experience to work with, scoping out areas and planning activism runs.” We can extrapolate that Conor intends to use the skills he’s gained working for and with ESI to help Patriot Front create a whites-only ethnostate, continue to commit hate crimes, propagandize for American fascism, and intimidate people of color, LGBTQ folks, women, Jews, leftists, and anyone else they deem to be unworthy.

ESI offers a host of training packages for the security and private investigation industry including Surveillance/Surveillance Detection; Executive Protection Program; Corporate Security Management Program; Tactical Medicine for the Executive Protection Professional; and Covert Protection Program. ESI also offers training programs for Executive Protection Program/Intelligence-Based Close Protection Certified Protection Specialist; Corporate Security Management Course: A Protective Intelligence Program; Certified PSD Protection Specialist, CPSDS; and Designated Defensive Marksman.

 

Make no mistake, Conor’s skill sets, beliefs, and involvement with neo-nazis elevate his threat potential for the Thornton, CO community and vulnerable communities across the country. We have seen him in DC and ID. Readers can jump to the Action Items section on the next page to learn who to contact at ESI to let them know that their employee is a member of a fascist organization.

We find it terribly amusing that immediately upon Conor’s reentry into the hate group, Patriot Front’s DC march chokepoints were attacked, their internal communications and unredacted face pics are leaked, their members are identified, and most recently, they’re all arrested in Coeur d’Alene, which lead to more identifications. Conor, after years of dodging accountability for his role in spreading hate and fear in the Chicagoland area, is finally outed and will face consequences at this employer as well as with his landlord. This is what happens when one joins a fascist organization pyramid scheme that’s micromanaged by a sentient cowboy hat and belt buckle. To the remaining Patriot Front fascists: get out now. Leave the hate group, deradicalize and take accountability, then rebuild your life. If you stay, we will find you. Every last one of you.

Chicago: Brodie Michael Blakeslee, Jefferson Park neo-nazi identified

 

Brodie Michael Blakeslee first popped up on our radar in June of 2020. We heard multiple accounts of people attending a BLM demonstration in Jefferson Park, a neighborhood on Chicago’s northwest side, that Brodie screamed at people, tore off his shirt to reveal Nazi and white power tattoos, and then charged at people with a pitchfork. We quickly ascertained where he lived — the BLM demo marched right by his house — and have been keeping an eye on him ever since.

This past week, news broke that someone had vandalized several POC-owned businesses in Jefferson Park with swastika graffiti.

As it turns out, those businesses are directly across the alley from Brodie’s house.

Not only does Brodie like harassing his neighbors, but he is dumb enough to get caught on camera while doing it. He’s charged with felony hate crime offenses.

This is not Brodie’s first arrest. He has several assault charges in Chicago already on record from 2017 and 2021, and he has served time in Nevada and California for burglary and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, respectively.

During his recent bail hearing, Brodie told a state’s attorney that he vandalized the stores “to let Black Lives Matter supporters know the neighborhood was protected.” He also told police he tagged the stores with “AW,” standing for Aryan Warriors, his prison gang, according to this article.

Brodie previously served time at Ely State Correctional Center in Nevada, where he went by aliases “Dingo Dog” or “Dog Dingo.” Nevada’s prison system, and the Ely supermax facility in particular, has a long history of internal corruption enabling white supremacist gangs like Aryan Warriors to commit extortion, racist violence, retaliatory killings, and meth distribution while locked up.

Brandon Michael Danaher of Blue Springs, Missouri exposed as “Patrick – MO” in hate group Patriot Front

White Nationalist Activities of Brandon Danaher, Patriot Front Member “Patrick – MO”

Brandon Michael Danaher was born on September 27, 1989. We’ll explore his descent into white nationalism shortly. First, do note that once members are granted access to the Patriot Front internal communications server, they chose a false name for themselves. That name corresponds with the state they live and their title, if applicable. In Patriot Front servers, Brandon Michael Danaher was known as Patrick, from Missouri.

Patriot Front member “Patrick-MO (@PF-5788)”  traveled from Blue Springs, Missouri in the Kansas City, Missouri area, and attended the December 4, 2021 Patriot Front training camp and march in Washington DC [1], as proven by his conversation with Thomas Rousseau afterwards.

In Brandon’s preparation for the weekend-long event, he private messaged fellow fascist “Mark – MO” his home address for transportation support. IPatrick tells us that he lives near Blue Springs, MO [2]. So much for OpSec!

Speaking of the Patriot Front march, rumors say antifascists won the day by disabling the fascists’ transport vehicles, leaving them stranded for hours in the cold.

Neo-Nazi Caleb Dane Rose outed as Patriot Front member Victor – IN living in Crawfordsville, Ind

Who is Patriot Front?
Patriot Front was founded in the aftermath of 2017’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The fascist who drove his car into the crowd, killing Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of others, marched at the rally with Thomas Rousseau of Vanguard America, a neo-Nazi group. For more information on James Alex Fields, click here. Soon after, Rousseau formed Patriot Front as a splinter of Vanguard America. The then-teenaged founder, Rousseau, seized membership and assets of an earlier white power organization, Vanguard America, and rebranded his group as Patriot Front.

While the organization uses red, white, and blue patriotic imagery, Patriot Front is unambiguously white nationalist, stating that “Nationhood cannot be bestowed upon those who are not of the founding [white] stock of our people.” The organization is also fascist, an early text was titled “American Fascist Manifesto”, and involves neo-Nazis within its ranks. Since 2017, Patriot Front has also held “flash mob” events, where they are easily spotted in their uniform of khaki pants, polo shirts, ball caps, and white gaiter masks, and carrying American flags, smoke bombs or other props. At these events, their uniformed members will unload from the back of a rented U-Haul or Penske box truck, then briefly march along their planned route through the city, usually at night when there are few bystanders. The purpose of these marches is to generate footage for a few minutes of flashy recruitment videos for their social media channels. As well as holding flash rallies featuring masked participants, Patriot Front regularly spreads propaganda in the form of stickers, banners, and stencil graffiti. Patriot Front goal is often intimidation, for example when it targets synagogues with propaganda for the racist group. Following 2020’s mass anti-racist protests and rebellion, Patriot Front has increasingly targeted Black Lives Matter and racial justice murals for defacement. Patriot Front does this both to threaten its perceived enemies and to build notoriety for the organization. Today, Patriot Front is one of the most active distributors of racist and antisemitic propaganda in the country, both online and via fliers, stickers, and banners. Per its manifesto, the group does not allow women to join and is actively working to create a whites-only ethnostate.

On January 21 2022, as Patriot Front was attempting to march at the anti-abortion protest in DC, independent media outlet Unicorn Riot released 500GB of Patriot Front’s unaltered internal communications. The leaks include “private, unedited videos and direct messages reveal a campaign to organize acts of racial hatred while indoctrinating teenagers into national socialism (Nazism).”

“This release is now made available to the public at vault.unicornriot.ninja. Volunteers upgraded Unicorn Riot’s DiscordLeaks platform to host 55,249 RocketChat messages and file attachments, allowing the public to search the cache and inspect how fascists try to operate discreetly at their most inner levels.” From UR’s BitTorrent section: PatriotFrontLeaks BitTorrent release:

The PatriotFrontLeaks BitTorrent file release requires approximately 440 gigabytes of space. (Contains more than 6600 files). The app “Transmission” v3.0.0 (Linux/Mac) and “qBittorrent” v4.4.0 (Windows) is confirmed to work with this release. BitTorrent packaging courtesy of Distributed Denial of Secrets.

The full Patriot Front communications, photos and videos are hosted on Unicorn Riot’s website.

The January 2022 leaks of Patriot Front’s inner workings, white supremacist rhetoric, connections to the US military, and attempts to infiltrate mainstream conservative movements have been published widely in national media outlets.

 

For more information, see the full articles whose headlines are captured above from The Guardian, Huffington Post, NPR, Ars Technica, and Vice. As the articles linked above also explain, upon arriving in the Patriot Front server, members select a fake name which corresponds to their home state, obscuring their identities even to one another. Thanks to the leaks, leader Rousseau and Patriot Front members have been concretely connected to multiple interstate attacks on Black Lives Matter, gay pride, and other progressive examples of public art: defacing and otherwise removing the originals and covering them with their own messages of hate.

 

Caleb Dane Rose as Patriot Front Member Victor 2889 IN 
Caleb Dane Rose was known as Victor 2889 IN but Caleb has been known to antifascists for years thanks to his numerous memberships in white nationalist groups. In fact, his previous membership in National Socialist Club (NSC)-131 was one of the main reasons for his identification in Patriot Front. NSC-131 was recently in the news after the hate group attended a St. Patrick’s day parade in Boston and used one of the Dropkick Murphy’s songs in their propaganda afterwards. After some insults online, Dropkicks invited the neo-nazis to talk at the park a few days later and NSC did not attend out of fear. NSC neo-nazis have roots or are otherwise connected other white nationalist organizations including National Socialist Movement, The Base, League of the South, Traditionalist Worker Party, Aryan Strike Force and Patriot Front.

 

At a July 2020 Rogersville, TN, Black Lives Matter protest against police and honoring George Floyd, Caleb was one of nine NSC 131 aka NSC Dixie members arrested for violence against BLM protesters, per Rogersville local news. It was also noted in the Rogersville Review article that Caleb is a member of a second hate group, Legion of St. Ambrose. Article is archived here. This information was recently recirculated thanks to Karma161 and Opossum Press. In Caleb’s Legion of St Ambrose days, he was known as Lerch Goebbels and his now-deactivated telegram was @/hanktankh83

Legion of St Ambrose aka Christ Gang was founded in 2019 by former members of white supremacist and anti-Semitic group Traditionalist Workers Party. It struggled to find relevance as a white nationalist “Christo-fascist” group that sought to recreate the country into a whites-only Christian ethnostate. In 2020, the hate group was rumored to have merged with NSC 131 and is no longer active. [For further reading on League of St Ambrose, we encourage folks to check out this archived ADL article with the knowledge that the Zionist ADL has identified African-Americans, Muslims, anarchists, queers, and other marginalized identities as threats.] 

We compare that face to one of the dozens visible from Patriot Front’s recorded and maskless training session at their Virginia camp in December 2021, leaked and hosted by Unicorn Riot. We paused at :02

and zoomed in

and then compared facial construction, ear shape, hairline, shoulder width and comparative height. It’s a match!

We are overjoyed to confirm that Caleb Dane Rose, a known member of both National Socialist Club 131 Dixie chapter and Legion of St Ambrose, is also a member of Patriot Front Indiana Chapter.

Patriot Front propaganda clean up: Lockport IL

In January 2022, Unicorn Riot independent media collective posted a massive leak of American fascist group Patriot Front’s internal servers which included tons of personally identifying information, unredacted face pics, as well as explicit plannings of hate crimes. Identified members of the hate group, image galleries, and other helpful resources can be found at https://patriotfail.blackblogs.org

In the face of incredible public disgust and outrage at Patriot Front’s beliefs and actions, most notably at their march in DC in December 2021 and their failed attempts to join March For Life in Chicago and DC, both in January 2022, Patriot Front leader Thomas Rousseau commanded his dwindling group of white nationalists to post stickers and other propaganda in towns near their homes to aid in online recruitment efforts. In Lockport, Illinois, neighbors made short work of the four neo-Nazi stickers hung up, hours after they appeared. People on the ground reported that the cheap, poorly-printed stickers would not have survived the elements beyond a day as they were already disintegrating in the sleet. Further proof that Midwest winters also hate Illinois Nazis lol:

Despite the risks taken by the single local white nationalist who we believe to be living in Joliet, IL, the next town over, his efforts were easily undone and the people in Lockport continue to be blissfully unaware of Patriot Front.
