Chicago Proud Boys Telegram Chat Logs Identify Chicago Police Officer Rob Bakker as Proud Boy

The Proud Boys are an SPLC-designated hate group for their identity as a far-right neo-fascist organization that admits only men as members and promotes political violence. They’re easily identified with their yellow-ringed knock-off Fred Perry polos and their propensity to get loud, drunk, and in fights. Across the country, they have been condemned for attacking defenseless people in the streets, especially if the PB gang did not agree with their political beliefs, their sexuality or gender orientation, or their religion.

The Proud Boys Chicago chapter operated a clandestine Telegram group called “Fuck Antifa” that was later renamed to “D-Fence Squad” for a significant portion of the summer of 2019. The members of the chat group have been identified as Sean Dolan, “Trigger” Tom Christensen, Nick Stiso, Jon “Heathen” Argumedo and Chicago Police Officer Rob Bakker.

Chicago connection to that Columbus, OH Anti-Semitic protest sign: supporter Mike Kearns, Chicago police officer

This post is dedicated to the everyday antifascists, the ones who make racists, anti-Semites, Islamophobes, sexists, misogynists, transphobes, and other such Nazis unwelcome across every platform. We see you. We appreciate you.

Last weekend, people across the country answered the astroturfed call and demanded local government reopen their states, despite the tide of the growing coronavirus pandemic, so they and more vulnerable people can get back to work (lol). Urged on by facebook groups created by right-wing organizations and donors, people are demanding an end to the self-isolation guidelines. However, anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and Holocaust imagery are also present at anti-lockdown protests. For an overview and photos about the worrisome and staggeringly stupid protests, read this Daily Mail article.

In Columbus Ohio, under the bored and absentminded-eyes of police, known hate group Proud Boys and armed militia members were present, alongside a group with this explicitly anti-Semitic message:

And the white nationalists were spotted later that day by another person:

And these fascist chuds made a Chicago connection.

Brendan Sweeney: Midwest Regional Coordinator for White Nationalist Organization Identity Evropa/American Identity Movement

Update 12/10/2019: Brendan has been terminated from his sales consultant job at his former employer.

White nationalist hate group Identity Evropa Discord user “AltRightMick” who appears on Charlottesville and Identity Evropa servers that were leaked in March by Unicorn Riot and twitter hellion Chidentitarian has been identified as none other than Brendan Sweeney of Chicago, Illinois.

Brendan went by the pseudonym “AltRightMick” on Identity Evropa’s Discord servers and Slack channels, but after the leaks, the hate group was permanently banned from Discord and Slack. Currently, he has started to organize under the new pseudonym “Carl – IL” on the American Identity Movement’s MatterMost chat rooms, which was also released by Unicorn Riot.


Identity Evropa, a Neo-Nazi organization, is infamous for their involvement in the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, where antifascist Heather Heyer was killed by Neo-Nazi James Alex Fields Jr. They are an SPLC-designated hate group which tried to rebrand to escape culpability after Charlottesville.

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

This article would not have been possible without assistance from TPUSA members and other sources. 
Nicholas J Fuentes is one of the last few remaining alt-right grifters who hasn’t been cannibalized by their own fanbase, but he’s getting there. Fuentes is the founder and host of the America First show, where he rails against feminism, immigration, Israel, and whichever right-wing shithead he’s feuding with this week; including Richard Spencer, Sebastian Gorka, literally every woman who ever got involved in alt-right politics, and most recently, TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk.

Joseph Jagusah aka College Reactionary aka Borgia King: White Nationalist Anti-Semite at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

When we got word of an alt-right twitter account publicly posting to ask dudes to come over and watch Soviet-era movies with him, our interest was piqued. Who is this guy? And is this the nationalist version of Netflix and chill?

He definitely sounds like a charmer. A quick search of the readily available massive white nationalist discord server dump, curated and hosted by the amazing Unicorn Riot lands us with this immediate confirmation:

the best own is a self-own

Between Borgia King and his discord profile, we note that the same usernames and profile pic. Sometimes putting the pieces together isn’t that hard.

That’s pretty unique name. So we looked for his name in LinkedIn:

Thomas Randall Sparks: Albuquerque Proud Boy, Nazi conspiracy theorist, and convicted child molester

This article was written by comrade @all_socks & edited by Chicago Anti-Fascist Action.

Too big of a reveal for a Twitter thread, this identification all started with a simple question:

Who is this LARPer rocking Proud Boy colors, body armor, and knee pads with a go-pro strapped to his head at the Proud Boys rally in Albuquerque, New Mexico?

computer, enhance.

First, it should be noted that of the fourteen Proud Boys who did show up to wave some flags with police protection, four of them have already been outed on the @all_socks Twitter account, with more on the way! Local media The Daily Lobo reports on how the community turned up to stand against fascism to send a message to violent far group that day, most notably that the Proud Boys were outnumbered 10:1.

Who are the Proud Boys? They’re a violent far-right extremist group connected to about a dozen brutal attacks across the country, known for organizing with other white supremacist organizations. Check out what the Southern Poverty Law Center has to say about them:

We would like to introduce you to Thomas Randall Sparks currently residing in Santa Fe, New Mexico and previously of Sequim, Washington.

Mike Chubb, Franklin Park Resident and member of SPLC Designated Hate Group Proud Boys

As we’ve covered in previous articles, the Proud Boys are a violent far-right group that has had many arrests among its members for violence. Don’t believe us? Read what the Southern Poverty Law Center has to say about this violent far-right group. In fact, “Trigger” Tom Christensen, the President of the Chicago Chapter of the Proud Boys, was just found guilty of 2 felonies for stabbing two people outside of a Dropkick Murphy’s concert in 2017. Tom, with a long and storied history of white supremacy and attacking anti-fascists, will be sentenced September 30th, 2019. Read our full dossier on Christensen here.

Shortly after Trigger Tom was found guilty, a new Twitter account popped into the scene claiming to represent the Chicago Proud Boys. He revealed his own identity rather quickly after he posted his own Cash App handle on Twitter.


Easy for us, we were able to get his real name by searching Cash App for the username he posted on twitter which leads us to:

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

As we’ve covered in previous articles, the Proud Boys are a violent far-right group that has had many arrests among its members for violence. Don’t believe us? Read what the hate group trackers the Southern Poverty Law Center and Anti-Defamation League have to say about this violent far-right group. In fact, “Trigger” Tom Christensen, the President of the Chicago Chapter of the Proud Boys, was just found guilty of 2 felonies for stabbing two people outside of a Dropkick Murphy’s concert in 2017. Tom, with a long and storied history of white supremacy and attacking anti-fascists, will be sentenced September 30. Read our dossier on Christensen here.

Interestingly, in the Chicago Sun-Times article about Tom’s sentencing a familiar, annoying name pops up:

Who’s that Nick Stiso? More than just a poser punk who’s only claim to fame is that he was a background extra in the SLC Punk movie sequel. (That’s right, the 1998 hit movie had a sleeper sequel which came out in 2016 and he’s in a few crowd scenes)

Source: https://archive.fo/cWGLm

Nick Stiso was oftentimes accompanying Tom Christensen and Adam Richard Glenn, but not cool enough to star in the embarrassing Chicago Proud Boys Sabotage video. He’s a member who operates quietly, often executing missions on behalf of Tom’s commands-Nick Stiso. Most of the time, he is tasked with either scoping out leftist spaces to try to doxx leftists, committing acts of petty vandalism, or outright targeted acts of violence.

Chicago Proud Boy President “Trigger” Tom Christensen found guilty of two felonies from 2017 stabbing

Article reposted from Idavox:

Another Proud Boy bites the dust. Of all the Nazis that for some reason keep going to Dropkick Murphys shows, despite how much the band hates Nazis, this one has a history that just cost him his freedom going to one.

COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE, IL — A White supremacist member of the neo-fascist Proud Boys with a long history of physical confrontations with antifa, attempts to infiltrate antifascist groups to gather information and was most recently seen with the founder of the American Guard at a rally in Chicago organized by local police officers, is currently in a Cook County jail cell after he was found guilty of charges stemming from stabbing a fellow attendee of a Dropkick Murphys concert two years ago when he was confronted about his affiliations.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Thomas Christensen was convicted of aggravated battery charges for stabbing a man outside the Aug. 8, 2017 concert at Northerly Island’s Huntington Bank Pavilion in his face and neck using a 3½-inch blade about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday following an argument during the concert. The victim was also treated for a broken jaw at a nearby hospital.

Steven Scheele, Northern Illinois University Student and Identity Evropa/American Identity Movement Member.

Discord user “Gaius Mucius Scaevola” (click here to read all of his posts), who appears on Identity Evropa’s Nice Respectable People Server that was leaked in March by Unicorn Riot, has been identified as none other than Steven Scheele of DeKalb, Illinois.

Steven, photographed in red here flashing a white supremacist hand symbol at his own mother’s wedding.

Identity Evropa, a Neo-Nazi organization, is most infamous for its involvement in the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, where antifascist Heather Heyer was killed by James Alex Fields Jr. Identity Evropa’s former leader, Nathan Damigo, is infamous for assaulting both a femme antifascist protester as well as an Arab cab driver in an armed robbery, where he pulled a loaded gun in the face of an innocent man for “looking Iraqi“. They also have within their former membership an attempted Amtrak hijacker Taylor Wilson, and the fascist Nolan Brewer that tried setting a synagogue in Carmel, Indiana on fire. After the Unicorn Riot leaks dropped in March, Identity Evropa scrambled to re-brand as the American Identity Movement.

Let’s dig right into Steven Scheele’s posts as “Gaius”, explain his strategy, and then explain how we unmasked him. First, we see a racist meme that Steven posts that calls people of color “shitskins” and that describes the futility of the white supremacist conspiracy theory of the “Great Replacement”
