Discord user “Placidseven – MO”( click here to read all 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 Ryan Lane Thomas of Fenton, Missouri.
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.

This gives us a potential name, Ryan Thomas, a location – Missouri, and another potential username -rthomas529. With a quick Google search, we were able to find his posts as rthomas529 on a malwarebytes forum which led us to a better view of his face. We also found another post, where a user rthomas529 is talking about Fenton, Missouri and raising chickens.
So now we lives on a street address starting with 1736, somewhere near Fenton Missouri and that his name may be Ryan Thomas. What can we find?
That sure does look like the photo he uploaded of his house. He made it quite easy for us. To top off the creepiness of Ryan’s fascist fetish, here is a video he posted on his YouTube account showing that he has a loaded gun in his car’s glove department, followed by talking about how he could come into his kid’s gym and kill everybody if he was a “bad guy”. If you know the whereabouts of this school, please contact us!
If you have any details about Ryan’s place of employment, please send us an email at antifascistchicago [@] riseup [dot] net.
