James Daniel Valentine: Patriot Front’s Goodest Boy

Meet James Daniel Valentine: Patriot Front’s “Goodest_Boy”

Patriot Front is a Texas-based American fascist, neo-Nazi group that was formed shortly after the Unite the Right rally in August 2017. The group, led by Thomas Rousseau, split from Vanguard America shortly after James Fields drove his car through protesters killing Heather Heyer. Thanks to the work of anti-fascists, we have a large collection of private messages from this group. These messages have been made available to the public thanks to Unicorn Riot. One of the most active networks within Patriot Front is located in Northwest Washington.

In July of 2018, Eugene Antifa reported on Patriot Front member Jake Prior. In that article, we also spoke of Patriot Front member “Goodest_Boy ” whom we had pictures of but didn’t have a name.

Thanks to the work of Chuck Tanner we now know his name is James Daniel Valentine.

James Daniel Valentine is a 27 year old American fascist who lives in his mother’s house with his wife Christine in Lakebay, Washington. Valentine organizes locally and nationally with other fascists and is active around the Washington area putting up fascist propaganda and attempting to sabotage anti-racist activists’ efforts. By reading his messages in a neo-Nazi Discord server, we have learned about his racist and misogynist views. What is, perhaps, even more troubling is his expressed desire to join the National Guard. We are increasingly seeing a trend of neo-Nazis involved with the military, and Valentine is another name to add to this list.

On the evening of December 6th, 2017, James Valentine and Jake Prior were stopped and ID’d by Olympic College security for putting Patriot Front flyers up on campus.

James Valentine appears to be the second Patriot Front member to join the Patriot Front chat on Discord. Possibly the first propaganda mission Valentine completed was with “Norman” the first weekend in October 2017. They flyered Gig Harbor and Olympic College for the first time. “Norman” gives Valentine much of the credit for that mission.

Valentine put up flyers in Port Orchard, Washington on multiple occasions.

We know that Valentine and Prior aka “The_Human_Shoah” also put up flyers at Olympic College on December 6, 2017. Valentine also confirms this in the chat.

(Note: Valentine misspells college more than once in the chat.)

In December of 2017, members of the Washington network of Patriot Front, including Valentine, met up with members of Patriot Front from Utah and the PDX Daily Stormers to flyer Portland State University. Reed College and Portland Community College in Oregon were also hit with fascist propaganda.

The Washington Front members flyered Tacoma, Washington in February of 2018.

Washington Front member held a banner at Gas Works Park in Seattle, Washington in March 2018 (Valentine pictured in the center).

It appears that James Valentine and Jake Prior continue to flyer neighborhoods in Washington as there have been multiple reports.

Anti-ICE and pro-immigration activists have reported harassment by Patriot Front members and an antifascist message on a billboard sponsored by Tacoma Against Nazis was vandalized by Patriot Front members.

In addition to posting pictures of their prolific propaganda campaigns in the Discord server “Front and Center,” Valentine chats about Patriot Front optics, his wife (who he claims to have “fashed,”) and discusses his racist and anti-Semitic beliefs.

One of the key components of Patriot Front is their concern for optics. They attempt to present themselves as nationalists while hiding their neo-Nazi leanings. Valentine discussed this with another group member.

Valentine lives with his wife Christine Pritchett Valentine. Valentine discussed his wife in the chat and claims to have turned her into a fascist. Christine created fascist themed memes for Valentine to share in the Discord server and purchased materials for Valentine to use in his flyering campaigns.

When Vanguard American split, many of its members began to organize with Thomas Rousseau as Patriot Front. Several remaining Vanguard America members opted to organize with Atomwaffen Division. While support for Atomwaffen Divison among Patriot Front members is not unanimous, many members openly embrace Atomwaffen Division’s philosophy based upon the neo-Nazi contemporary classic book Siege. James Valentine is one member who openly shares his agreement with the sentiment of this book.

Siege is a primer for Atomwaffen Division members; it is especially important to monitor individuals who become infatuated with this text. Many Patriot Front members are simply fascists who are eager to organize with other fascists and are not necessarily committed to any one group. Many Patriot Front members have left the group and have gone on to organize with other groups. Jake Prior found Patriot Front tactics weak and went on to organize with a Hammerskins support group, Crew 38, instead. It is quite possible that when Washington’s Patriot Front network dissolves, James Valentine will go on to organize with a different neo-Nazi group. It is for this reason and more that we must continue to monitor exposed fascists.

Black Metal’s Fascist Creep: Gena Marie Stroud

The many faces of Gena Marie Stroud

Having come to Nazism via the Black Metal scene, Gena Marie Stroud has been known to make flagrantly racist remarks and white supremacist diatribes. She was in a long term relationship with neo-Nazi Paul Aaron Masiko Bonnen, as well as, maintaining ties with other neo-Nazis from the now defunct Volksfront. This includes a long term friendship with Eugene area local neo-Nazi and American Front associate Kevin Ross.

Online, as well as in public, Gena Stroud has been known to use profane, vulgar, and abusive language including death threats, threats to commit bodily harm, and threats to commit personal property destruction. She has also been known to engage in extreme verbal aggression, physical aggression, and object aggression- most especially in relation to those she is romantically engaged with. Perhaps what Gena has become most infamous for, locally, is her obsessive and long term stalking of numerous individuals. Stroud’s stalking behavior has led her to send thousands of unwelcomed, off-hinged, and graphically threatening Facebook messages, text messages, phone calls and voice messages along with egregious comments and posts on social media. Stroud often attempts to steal clothing and impersonate individuals she is stalking and harassing and has even attempted to romantically pursue individuals close to her victims in order to gain closer access. This behavior has caused the disruption of her victims’ lives; some have even had to move and seek restraining orders against her for the safety of themselves and their families.

After an extensive manhunt and ultimate apprehension by the SWAT team, Gena Stroud was most recently arrested for harassment in July 2018 in Eugene, Oregon. Stroud had a total of 6 warrants out on her at the time of her arrest.  Stroud is known to have stalked at least 6 women and 3 men. One individual Stroud has stalked for going on 12 years. In a 2015 plea-deal involving the Lane County District Attorney’s Office, a five year ban from the Internet was imposed on Gena Stroud (which she violated). Stroud was also given time on violating a stalking order (a total of 45 days) and five years probation. According to jail records, Stroud has been arrested six times in 2015 alone: all for violating a stalking order. She is currently in custody with an upcoming Lane County court pre-trial conference hearing on August 20, 2018 at 2:30pm and a six person jury trial on August 30th, 2018 at 9:30am.

The “Mjölnir” pendant around Stroud’s neck in the photo above is also known as “Thor’s Hammer,” has been a prominent feature in Viking lore, and has become the symbol of the Asatru faith found in early tribal Scandinavian tribes that constitutes the bulk of Teutonic-Norse Mythology. While not necessarily being a symbol of hate, it has however, been long since appropriated by neo-Nazis in an interpretation that is popularly known as “Folkish/Volkish” Astatru which is where it gains its popularity as a symbol in modern times.

Take note of the racist and homophobic memes found on Gena Stroud’s Facebook account depicted here:

Gena Marie Stroud has had a pattern of engaging in friendships and romantic relationships with very dangerous men, the details of which we will explore below.

Left: American Front associate Kevin Ross, friend to Gena Stroud, pictured here at the Laskey owned business Wolfclan Armory (currently located in Cottage Grove); Right: Kevin Ross’ white power tattoo located on his inner right arm

Facebook comments in particular have been found online between Gena Marie Stroud, Reed Zander (her current boyfriend), and Kevin Ross that can be seen below. Note the sexist/misogynistic comment at the very top coming from Ross, followed by his tacit admission to being a neo-Nazi found at the very bottom. “14/88” is stereotypical Nazi fascist numerological code. “14” stands for the “14 words”, or: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” “88” represents the letter “H” twice in the English alphabet, where: “88”= ”HH,” or “Heil Hitler.”

Gena Stroud aka “Genevieve Romito,” Kevin Ross, and Reed Zander, all of the Eugene area, banter on Facebook in acknowledgement of Ross’ open neo-Nazi positioning

In 2010, Gena Stroud was documented with her boyfriend Paul Bonnen at a Volksfront gathering via a leaked, four page photo series released by Rose City Antifa. Paul Aaron Masiko Bonnen is a neo-Nazi known to have been part of the now defunct National Socialist Black Metal (NSBM) band Immortal Pride and went by the name “Draugr.” Bonnen is a convicted sex offender and at one time lived in Albany, Oregon. He played alongside Justin Endicott (aka “Volkstahl”) and members of Panzergod, a Portland based black metal band, in the “no politics” black metal Echoes of Emptiness.  Bonnen shares with Greg Lehr, drummer for Immortal Pride, a pronounced love of posing in front of Nazi flags and then posting the pictures of himself on the Internet.

Paul Bonnen, Greg Lehr, and Justin Endicott of Immortal Pride

There was more than a certain irony that neo-Nazi propagandist Paul Bonnen at one point called for people to respect “diversity.” Immortal Pride members did not have a track record of preaching respect or diversity, to say the least.

Greg Lehr sang “From the shade of tolerance / comes the racial death” in the song Aryan Winds performed by his solo project SchwarzSonneZorn. When he posted these lyrics online, his fellow band member in Immortal Pride, Justin Endicott, commented: “Your best creation to date brother!” (Lehr afterward tried to distance himself from Immortal Pride).

Immortal Pride lyrics such as the song Vinland Elite were clear calls for genocide: “We must decimate the scum / with superior fire power [… ] Your tribe will be forgotten / your filthy lies erased”

It is therefore rather odd that Paul Bonnen afterward claimed that “respect [for] each others opinions [sic] and individuality” was “the Immortal Pride way.”

It is ludicrous to claim that the members of Immortal Pride “are not bigots or hate mongers.” Immortal Pride’s old webpage used a picture of burning bodies at Auschwitz as decoration, while Bonnen enjoyed displaying photographs of himself making stiff-arm Nazi salutes (also referred to as the “Roman Salute”). The group played neo-Nazi gatherings and is affiliated with Volksfront International and Blood & Honour American Division. This would appear to be rather extreme hate-mongering. In fact, Bonnen has been known to have attended at least one Volksfront event with Gena Stroud.

In the first picture below, both Bonnen and Stroud can be seen posing for a group photo with prominent Volksfront members. They are side by side in the center row and far right of the picture with Bonnen’s arm around her. In the second picture, you can see both mingling in group of attendees with the Volksfront banners appearing prominently nearby.

Here is a photograph of Stroud and Bonnen posing in front of a black flag with a prominent red “Sonnenrad” displayed on it. The “Sonnenrad,” also referred to as the “Schwarze Sonne” or “Black Sun” has been known to be used in many currents of occult Germanic neopagan esotericism, most especially in currents that are tied to neo-Nazi ideology (Folkish/Volkish Asatru), which is where this symbol finds its popularity in modern times beginning in the post-World War 2 era due to its existence being discovered in Heinrich Himmler’s Wewelsburg Castle.

In the following photo, Bonnen is second from the left next to violent neo-Nazi, American Front member, and Greystorm Productions manager Jeff Thomas (aka “Jay Grey”) with a shaved head, and wearing a “Sonnenrad” t-shirt at a neo-Nazi Volksfront get together.

Bonnen poses for a photo in his room with a black flag with red “Sonnenrad” on it. There is also what appears to be a green, white, and red flag displaying the “Algiz” or “Elhaz” rune on it; this rune has been adopted in Nazi occultism through the Germanic mysticism of the early 20th century via Karl Maria Wiligut as symbolizing “life” and called the “life rune” (In German: “Lebensrune“). This term occurs as early as the 1920s in the literature of Germanic mysticism and it came to be widely used within the Nazi Party and Nazi Germany.

Paul Bonnen pictured with two flags that have become commonly associated with neo-Nazism

Bonnen is again at the far left posing with his band mates with their arms folded. Note the “Bound For Glory” t-shirt. Bound for Glory started off in 1989 as a Nazi-Skinhead (“Bonehead”) Oi/ Rock Against Communism style band from Minnesota. In 1993, they crossed-over to being a Neo-Nazi Heavy Metal/Thrash Metal band, which unfortunately is still active today.

Just prior to her current boyfriend, Gena Stroud was in a relationship with a co-defendant in the 1994 Dari-Mart killing, a hot-tempered and violent alcoholic Dan Paul Rabago aka “Dan the Impailer.” After cooperating with cops by informing on his co-defendants, Robaga was issued a much lighter sentence and at the age of 16 years old, was given 12 years in prison. He is currently on post prison supervision for the remainder of his life. It is worth researching the details regarding this particular case in order to get a better understanding of not only who Rabago was, but who he is today. Rabago lives in the Eugene area and plays in the death metal band Omnihility.

Another dangerous individual Gena Stroud dated was Jesse Steven Richard Markin who has a lengthy criminal record including three charges of rape and sodomy. He was convicted of one felony count.  In June 2017 while in the State of Washington, Markin was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender.

An example of charges Jesse Markin has been arrested for

Reed Zander is Gena Stroud’s current boyfriend and has been her on and off again boyfriend for the last 2 -3 years. Zander likes to fancy himself as a punk-rocker. However, Zander has conveniently forgotten one of the major aspects about being a part of the punk rock scene: the hard-line stance against racism, fascism, and most especially Nazi fascism.

Gena Stroud and her current boyfriend, Eugene resident, Reed Zander

In closing, it needs to be emphasized,  given the severity of Gena Marie Stroud’s personality disorder issues, her sympathies and ties to neo-Nazism, her grossly unethical, abusive, and violent behavioral issues towards others- that all persons (especially those who know her personally) cease attempting to prove any moral, material, physical, or financial support. Be on the lookout for this dangerous individual living in our community!

Last words from a racist, homophobic, and dangerous Gena Stroud. She is a fascist creep.

Giovanina McCollough and Daniel Hoff: A Cop and Her Boyfriend Exposed as UTR2 Organizers

Giovanina J. McCollough, left and her boyfriend Daniel P. Hoff, right.

A log of Facebook messages among organizers of the fascist gathering called “Unite the Right 2” was recently released by Unicorn Riot.  In those messages, one can see the overtly racist and nationalist nature of this event, designed as a sequel to the Unite the Right held in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12, 2017. The first Unite the Right event saw a “who’s who” of fascist and racist groups gather including True Cascadia, Vanguard America, Identity Europa, Traditionalist Workers Party, the Rise Above Movement, Atomwaffen Division, the National Socialist Movement, the League of the South, as well as individuals such as Jason Kessler, former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, and Richard Spencer. After Vanguard America member Alex Fields murdered Heather Heyer at the event by plowing his car into a crowd of anti-racist protesters and after numerous participating neo-Nazis were publicly exposed, many of the fascist groups who participated in the event rapidly fractured within the coming year. None of this, however, deterred Jason Kessler from attempting to organize a second run.

Daniel P. Hoff, aka “Danny Wolf,” is an ex-Marine (sniper) and was one of about twenty individuals included in a Facebook Messenger group planning chat for Unite the Right 2. Currently residing in Oceanside, California, Hoff was born in Edmond, Oklahoma and has lived in a variety of locations in the mid-west and the south. Up until he received an inheritance last summer, Hoff was working as a home contractor in McMinnville, Tennessee. Now, Hoff spends most of his time in the Oceanside area, close to his ex-partner (a stripper) and their shared elementary school aged daughter. Hoff manages two online Alt-Right publications: The Sentinal and The Columbian Post both of which he seems to have abandoned in the past few months.

Daniel P. Hoff, a key figure in the early planning of UTR2, recruits attendees and individuals to provide security for the event

Daniel P. Hoff aka “Danny Wolf,” announces that he is a U.S. Marine veteran.

Daniel P. Hoff, aka “Danny Wolf,” announces that he is an “Alt-Libertarian,” and replies that he won’t treat open neo-Nazis any less than anyone else due to their beliefs.

Daniel P. Hoff, aka “Danny Wolf,” announces that he has the white supremacist gang “The Proud Boys” and the neo-Nazi gang “American Guard” onboard for Unite the Right 2.

Daniel P. Hoff, aka “Danny Wolf,” tells the group that he has an “AltLite” friend at VICE in Los Angeles, CA.

In the planning group chat, Hoff explains that he is a fairly public individual and is prepared to be exposed for his white supremacist organizing. In the chat, he infers that he will be bringing his girlfriend to Unite the Right 2 and that he will consult her in regards to arranging buses to transport attendees in. Thanks to antifascist infiltrators, we were able to observe Giovanina J. McCollough’s interaction with well known fascist and racist individuals on Hoff’s Facebook page. Not only is McCollough well aware of Hoff’s public white supremacist ideology, but she has also positioned herself as an early assistant to the Unite the Right 2 organizers.

Giovanina J. McCollough aka “Nina Rossi,” aka “Nina McCollough,” is a patrol officer with the Headland, Alabama Police Department and currently resides in Daleville, Alabama. Both McCollough and Hoff share a history of failed marriages and despite maintaining permanent residences in different states, also maintain a romantic relationship with each other.

Antifascists have exposed numerous racist and fascist individuals working in police departments and the military. We ask the community to contact the Headland, Alabama Police Department, inform them of McCollough’s white supremacist ties, and put pressure on them to remove McCollough from her position. The Department can be contacted by phone at: (334) 693-2222; by fax: (334) 693-5577; and in person at: 9 Park Street, Headland, Alabama, 36345.

Daniel P. Hoff caught our attention while reviewing the leaked Facebook Messenger planning chat, not only because his girlfriend is a cop, but also because he claimed to know Tusitala Toese and had invited him to speak at Unite the Right 2. Toese is a bigoted, violent, and nationalist Alt-Right figure living in Vancouver, Washington. He is a “Proud Boy,” and is a staple at Joey Gibson’s Patriot Prayer rallies. Like Hoff, Toese shares a hatred for Communists and Antifa, of which they categorize the entire population of the Left.

Daniel P. Hoff, aka “Danny Wolf,” shows his support for Chilean dictator Pinochet

During the Unite the Right 2 planning, Jason Kessler urged his organizing team to secure some token people of color to speak at the rally in order to balance out more overt white supremacist figures. Some members of the organizing team were strongly against inviting any non-White individuals to speak; others did not trust Toese. The general consensus was that Toese was a lost and misguided person and they wanted to take advantage of that and mold him further into an Alt-Right talking head.

Jason Kessler admits most non-White would not want to speak at a white supremacist rally.

Jason Kessler realizes hosting a former Ku Klux Klan leader may not appeal to the general public and seeks to normalize his rally by considering inviting a non-White speaker.

Despite doubts from open neo-Nazis such as Fred Arena, aka “McCormick H. Foley,” Jason Kessler explains that inviting a non-White speaker will provide “political cover” for well known white supremacist speakers.

Daniel P. Hoff states he has known Tusitala Toese, aka “Tiny,” for awhile.

Even though some of the Unite the Right 2 organizers express distrust of Tusitala Toese, aka “Tiny,” Jason Kessler urges Daniel P. Hoff to have Toese contact him.

Tusitala Toese, aka “Tiny,” is a 22 year old Vancouver, Washington resident and staple in Joey Gibson’s Patriot Prayer rallies. He is known for his large body and taken advantage of for his small brain.

The original Unite the Right 2 planning group began to fracture due to disagreements between those who were not afraid to admit and display their neo-Nazi beliefs and those who attempted to cloak their white supremacist ideology as a “White Civil Rights” effort. Immediately after Unicorn Riot released their leaked chats,  this organizing group shattered leaving everyone to suspect the other of having been the rat.

As the events of August 12, 2018 show, the Unite the Right 2 rally in Washington D.C., while originally expecting at least 200 attendees, could hardly cobble together a couple dozen. The community came out to oppose white supremacy by the thousands, and most of the white supremacists who did come out were too afraid, or embarrassed, to show their identity.

For anti-racists and anti-fascists, our take home message is clear: Disrupting white supremacist organizing works!

From Patriot Front to Crew 38: Tracking the Fascist Activity of Jake Prior and Kenzie Clark in Washington

Patriot Front is a Texas-based American fascist, neo-Nazi group that was formed shortly after the Unite the Right rally in August 2017. The group, led by Thomas Rousseau, split from Vanguard America shortly after James Fields drove his car through protesters killing Heather Heyer. Thanks to the work of anti-fascists, we have a large collection of private messages from this group. One of the most active networks within Patriot Front is located in Northwest Washington. In this article, we will expose one of the most violent members of Washington’s Patriot Front network, Jacob Landis Prior (birth date: 7/28/94), and his girlfriend, Mackenzie Clark, and show their affiliations with the Crew 38 neo-Nazis of Tac Town Tattoo.

Thomas Rousseau, left, founder of Patriot Front; James Field, right, prior to the murder of Heather Heyer at the white nationalist rally “Unite the Right” in Charlottesville, Virginia (August 2017)

In the Fall of 2017, Gig Harbor, Washington, saw several instances of Patriot Front flyers being posted in their community. Washington Patriot Front members “Goodest_Boy WA” and “Norman” went on several flyering missions and frequently bragged about their antics in the Discord server Front and Center. They would post pictures of missions in the chat rooms so they could be tweeted by Patriot Front leader Thomas Rousseau. These missions garnered media attention and stirred controversy in Gig Harbor. Liberal groups convened in an attempt to handle the situation.

Here is an example from November 16, 2017, when user “Goodest_Boy WA” posted pictures from one of his flyering missions. He photographs the flyers with text reading, “Not Stolen, Conquered” and “Resurrection Insurrection” on posts and news boxes throughout the city. “Goodest_Boy WA” even shows himself applying the flyers to various surfaces. This news article documents several of the discovered flyers.

User “Jake WA” (aka “The_Human_Shoah” #3006) showed up in the same Discord server on December 7th, 2017. Quickly, Jake hoped to make a name for himself within the group. Jake begins flyering and making banners with “Goodest_Boy WA”.

Fortunately, Jake took the liberty of doxxing himself when he posted this photo in a chatroom:

Note: Jake is wearing the same shirt in this photo with Kenzie as he was while hanging Patriot Front flyers in Gig Harbor.

Jake expresses jealousy of Patriot Front members who receive press coverage for their flyering, lamenting, “it’s what I’m striving for.” He was vocal about spending much of his free time flyering, and speaks of how he, “feels a need” and “must flyer.” Eventually, “Jake WA” follows other members’ lead by bragging about and posting photos of his own flyering handiwork.

Jake finally got some media attention for his flyering of Tacoma, Washington. On the early morning of March 5, 2018, Jake posted these photos to the Patriot Front Discord server:

That evening the News Tribune posted an article documenting the Patriot Front flyers.

This wouldn’t be the only time Tacoma was plastered with Patriot Front flyers.

To view “Mr. Apex WA” Discord messages, click here: https://discordleaks.unicornriot.ninja/discord/user/1819

In addition to flyering, Jake likes to fly banners, make racist drawings,and complain about the non-White people in his town. He posts these antics to impress his Discord friends as well.

Online, Jake makes no attempt to conceal his hateful priorities. Below are two Facebook accounts that are linked to “Jake WA.” The bio proclaims his affinity for, “long walks on the beach, good mojitos, and racial preservation.” On Facebook, he openly posts photos of himself sporting Crew 38 attire; Crew 38 is a supporter group of the hate group “Hammerskins.”

In February 2018, Seattle area anti-fascists reported on a neo-Nazi owned and operated tattoo shop in Tacoma, WA. Read that report here. This report started a flood of negative reviews on the Tac Town Tattoo Facebook page as well as positive reviews by known neo-Nazis and their sympathizers. On May 5, 2018, Jake posted a review of Tac Town Tattoo stating that they had fixed one of his tattoos. It appears this meeting fostered his alliance with the neo-Nazi skinhead group Pacific Northwest Hammerskins.

On June 16, 2018, a group calling itself Tacoma Against Nazis picked up the fight against Tac Town Tattoo. They had a demonstration outside the tattoo shop on June 22nd and on July 10, 2018, they funded a billboard in Tacoma proclaiming “There are NAZIS in our neighborhood.” This protest and billboard spurred even more negative attention on the tattoo shop. Jake posts on 4chan that the attention has hurt their business and that something must be done to help the Nazi tattooists.

The owner and employees of Tac Town Tattoo are well known neo-Nazis that have been tracked for years by antifascists. They have deep ties with American Front, including Lane County Jail resident Jake Laskey. Recently, these neo-Nazis have been fronting for Crew 38. Jacob Prior and his girlfriend Kenzie Clark have recently begun to socialize with this circle of neo-Nazis, and as a result, their white supremacist ideology has hardened as they sink deeper into the pit of 1.0 White Nationalist organizing.

Mackenzie Clark was born on May 20, 1993, and has been Jake’s girlfriend for a couple years now.  A quick glance of her Facebook profile, including her friends list, reveals Kenzie’s own affiliations with neo-Nazi skinheads including Jason De Simas, Ryan De Ann De Simas, Matthias Hammerzeit, and Matty O’Hammer. Kenzie seems to have been “red pilled” by Jake as a thorough review of her Facebook profile will show that she wasn’t always as racist, homophobic, nationalistic, or embracing of the “white power” motifs. In fact, not too long ago, Kenzie was outspoken on her Facebook page about equality and gay rights. Unfortunately, she hooked up with a white supremacist and she has quickly been brainwashed.

Jacob Landis Prior tells us that his girlfriend Mackenzie Clark “hates niggers.”

Kenzie cannot claim innocence, however, as she has accompanied Patriot Front members on outings and served as their photographer and videographer during banner drops and other activities. Kenzie has quickly integrated herself, even if by the leash her boyfriend Jake holds, into white supremacist circles. Her rhetoric on her Facebook page leans more to Alt Right wording, and she seems to approve, and even try out, fascist and neo-Nazi appearances.

Kenzie is the manager of the Sprint store in Gig Harbor. Feel free to call the store at (253) 235-2980 and let the workers know their manager is a bigot. Or, visit the store at 4935 Point Fosdick Dr. NW and politely inform the workers and customers that the manager of the store is a neo-Nazi.

Mackenzie Clark is the store manager at the Sprint store in Gig Harbor, WA. She tries out a Patriot Front uniform mask pretending what it might be like to be a member. Little does she know women aren’t allowed and that members are quite misogynistic.

Eugene Martial Arts Instructor Andrew Allwander Plans for Violent Attacks Against Antifascists

Andrew Allwander of Eugene, Oregon attends a Patriot Prayer rally in Portland on 6/30/18

Andrew William Allwander was born on June 3, 1982 in Eugene, Oregon. He began to train in martial arts as a young teen and traveled around the United States, and internationally, learning different techniques and arts. Allwander spent some time in California where he graduated from Biola University, a private Christian university with a degree in Intercultural Studies and minor is TESOL and Bible.  He left the university disgruntled because the university culture was not conservative enough and, in his own words:  ” . . . the Word of God has been so corrupted with Satanic deception. Not only their New Age, Occult spirituality, but the rampant sexual immorality and drunkenness.”  After he left Biola, Allwander spent some time in Kentucky and Alabama and lived for at least one year in Korea where he taught English Language Learners and earned his 4th degree black belt.

Recently, Andrew Allwander moved back to Eugene, and currently lives with his grandmother off River Road at 250 Hawthorne Avenue, Eugene, Oregon 97404. Since his return to Eugene, he has attempted to earn money by teaching martial arts and has resorted to making house calls and teaching individual students out of garages or at a public park. Every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:30pm to 9pm, Allwander can be found at the Family Karate Center located at 577 River Road, Eugene, Oregon 97404 where he teaches Ensayo Kali (Filipeno stick fighting).

Andrew Allwander grew up with a conservative mindset, which he honed at Biola university, and developed an interest in Nazi memorabilia. Even though his grandfather fought in WWII against the Nazis, Allwander seems not to have learned the lessons that the history of WWII should have taught.

After the election of Donald Trump, many far right conservatives began to feel more comfortable expressing their extreme nationalistic and bigoted views. Andrew Allwander is one such example. Pro Trump rallies soon became more frequent and these rallies almost always drew a counter protest from antifascists. At these pro Trump rallies, antifascists and far right advocates often met each other with physical confrontation. Andrew Allwander found a hero in this: Kyle Chapman aka “Based Stickman,” a California resident who found fame in assaulting an antifascist activist by bludgeoning them on the head with a lead pipe in Berkeley. Chapman instantly became an Alt Right figure and has since constantly been in trouble with the law due to his overt violent activities against antifascist activists and anti Trump advocates.

Andrew Allwander aims to train the Alt Right to become like Kyle Chapman aka “Based Chapman.” Note: “Kekistani” is a modern allusion to Nazi Germany; Often the far right will mock people on the Autism Spectrum.

Andrew Allwander served as the body guard for an Alt Right videographer, Keith Campbell, at the Patriot Prayer rally in Portland, Oregon on June 30, 2018. Soon after this bloody rally, Allwander joined a closed Facebook group titled “Patriot Prayer” in order to network with other Alt Right individuals with the aim of organizing and coordinating assaulting antifascist activists at the upcoming demonstration in Portland on August 4th.

Allwander hoped to retain some anonymity on Facebook by using the fake name “Jim Baker,” but ironically, he used a real photo of himself. Perhaps he was naive in estimating antifascists’ research skills, but we quickly uncovered his true identity. Through a series of discussion threads in this closed Facebook group, we were able to track the horrendous plans Andrew Allwander and his accomplices plan to execute for the upcoming Alt Right Patriot Prayer demonstration in Portland on August 4th. Not only does Allwander plan to train the Alt Right in fighting skills, but he has also discussed assaulting antifascist activists, hog tying them, and even targeting women and the disabled.

Andrew Allwander plans to host a “combative training” in Eugene on Saturday, July 14th in order to train the Alt Right in tactics for use in assaulting protesters on August 4th in Portland.

Increasingly, Andrew Allwander’s martial arts social media has begun to incorporate Alt Right content. Recently, he made posts glorifying the assaults by the Alt Right on antifascist activists in Portland alongside posts which show his affinity for Gavin McInnes, the founder of the white supremacist, hate group, “The Proud Boys.”

 

Please call the owner, Elida Wagner, of Family Karate Center at 541.344.5288 or email her at info@thefamilykaratecenter.com and let her know you don’t think a violent, Alt Right trainer should offer classes at her center which largely offers classes to children. Be aware while at River Road and Whiteaker area parks (especially on Saturdays) for Andrew Allwander as he often “trains” at these locations.

From Heroin to Hitler: Matthew Brien Stafford, an American Nazi

Matthew Brien Stafford in Portland, Oregon on June 4, 2017, attending a Pro-Trump rally hosted by Patriot Prayer’s Joey Gibson

“I’m an unabashed white supremacist.” -Matthew Brien Stafford

Cascadian Coffee Company Discord server 6/30/17

 

Matthew Brien Stafford is a 41 year old, 6’4” and 205 lb blue eyed with brown hair neo-Nazi from the Seattle, Washington area. Online, he is most known by the username “My Name Is Hate,” but has also used the aliases “MStaff,” “Savritis Wrath,” “Harbinger of Hate,” and “Change Nickname.”  Stafford is a follower of Esoteric Hitlerism (EH) which is a warped spiritual path based on Nazism, Aryan identity, and National Socialism (NS). Matt Stafford is the only Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP) member in all of Washington and Oregon. As a result, Stafford tends to communicate online with other TWP members (or, what’s left of them after The Great Cuckboxing), travel for national fascist meet ups, and collaborate with other local and regional neo-Nazis for in real life, direct action.  One of Stafford’s most influential figures from Esoteric Hitlerism is Savitri Devi (SD), a French born and English citizen whose birth name was Maximine Julia Portaz. Devi culturally appropriated Indian Hinduism and advocated for a spiritual and political form of National Socialism based on Adolf Hitler. It is from the philosophies of Devi that Stafford would begin to shape the next phase of his life as an “ethical vegan” yet misanthrope, racist, homophobe, and Hitler idolizing fascist. Currently, Stafford travels around the Pacific Northwest in his white, 1989 Chevrolet sleeper van (model G20)  with Washington state license plate number BDR9351. His black, Labrador dog, Tyrone, keeps him company; Matt Stafford plans to move out to the east coast.  As a recovering addict, felon, domestic abuser, and former prisoner, Stafford spent 27 years battling drug use, repeated incarceration, and homelessness.  He became “red pilled” in prison, claimed to be “halfway racially aware” in 2009, and embraced National Socialism as a form of a 12 step recovery program. Around 2015, Stafford made a full conversion to National Socialism. He believes that “the cure to the drug problem lay in National Socialism,” that it was a “religious/spiritual conversion” for him. He claims National Socialism saved his life; in fact, it is his religion.

While Matt Stafford’s home base has always been near his mother in Washington, he has also spent time (when not incarcerated) in Alaska (Petersburg, Ketchikan, and Sitka); Sacramento, California; Reno, Nevada; and Oregon (Corvallis, Eugene, Springfield, and Portland). Late last fall, Stafford traveled to Germany where he became drunk on Hitler memorabilia. Stafford is part of a network of neo-Nazis in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) which include members from the Daily Stormer Book Clubs, Atomwaffen Division (AWD) and the American Front support group American Patriots Brigade. Self titled in the Cascadian Coffee Company Discord server, Stafford’s PNW neo-Nazi network refer to themselves as the Central Oregon Aryans. These fascists meet up anywhere from the Seattle, Washington area to southern Oregon for highway overpass banner drops, stickering and flyering, campouts and bar-b-ques, and organizational planning.

The Central Oregon Aryans communicated online using a Discord server called Cascadian Coffee Company. It was here that members from Atomwaffen Division, Daily Stormer Book Clubs, American Patriots Brigade, and other unaffiliated neo-Nazis communicated regarding events. The Atomwaffen Division members are located in Washington, the Daily Stormer Book Club members live in Washington and the Portland, Oregon area, and the American Patriots Brigade members can be found in the Eugene, Oregon area. Other unaffiliated neo-Nazis stretch from Seattle to southern Oregon. It was this server that brought them all together, and it was in this server that the group planned several events including what culminated in late summer of 2017: The Solar Eclipse. The members of this server took advantage of the fact that thousands of tourists would be coming into Oregon to view the eclipse, and the neo-Nazis took this occasion to spread their message.

Matt Stafford quickly became a staple in neo-Nazi activity in the Pacific Northwest. He was desperate for in real life meet ups, action, and growing his fascist community. He would travel hundreds of miles to participate in “Flagocausts” and “Overpass Nationalism” (holding fascist flags and anti-Jewish banners at highway overpasses). Soon after “Operation Eclipse,” Matt Stafford would find himself in Corvallis, Oregon where two of his neo-Nazi companions live: Andrew Oswalt aka “Dat Goy” and David Woods aka “Fashy Chad” aka “Australopithecus Jordan.” The three of them now in Corvallis, Oregon, could travel the easy one hour drive to Springfield, Oregon to meet up with Jimmy Marr, a well known anti-Semite.

Matt Stafford spent part of his early fall of 2017 in Corvallis, Oregon before flying out to Germany for a visit, and for fear of becoming an incel, Stafford opened up an OKCupid account looking to meet the right neo-Nazi woman. Although he abandoned his son in 2001 and physically assaulted the mother of his child, Stafford longed to propagate the White race.

After his November 2017 trip to Germany, Stafford found himself in Eugene, Oregon house sitting for Matthew Lee Combs and Bethany Marie Sherman, a local white supremacist couple who owned a cannabis testing lab and who had recently been exposed as white supremacists. Following Combs’ and Sherman’s exposure, the couple fled Eugene leaving their business and home. Matt Stafford was one, of several white supremacists, who would show up to do a round of house sitting for them.

Discord server participation aided Matt Stafford in making connections across the country. Some of the servers he participated in include: the Cascadian Coffee Company, Charolottesville 2.0, tradworker, Literally not TradWorker, The Silver Guild, and GLF (Green Line Front). His messages from many of these servers can be found in Unicorn Riot’s searchable database of leaked Discord servers. Stafford was a dues paying member of the Traditionalist Workers Party and even after the group fractured (largely due to the work of antifascists in leaking and shutting down their main communication resource and by the internal conflict between the leaders Matthew Parrott and Matthew Heimbach), Stafford volunteered to take on a leadership position within the organization.

Of all the fascists groups to become a member of, Matt Stafford chose to become a member of TWP because he viewed it as being the most action oriented group. Stafford fits the description of a potential lone wolf neo-Nazi, and if TWP fails to revive itself, Stafford is likely to join the next most active group or carry out his plans alone. As an older and less tech savvy fascist, Stafford is not a keyboard warrior, his potential to act as a lone wolf is high.

The Green Liberation Front (GLF) was a short lived group that drew the attraction of environmental and animal rights fascists. These were extremists who valued the state of the environment and animals over humanity and embraced a fascist ideology. This group was appealing to Stafford, as it was to many environmentalists and animal rights activists who were new to exploring fascism (most participants were young, teenage boys still in high school). The minimal requirements were: you liked to go hiking, were a vegetarian, and idolized Adolf Hitler. Many Atomwaffen Division members supported this group, yet weren’t members themselves as AWD membership does not allow for their members to take on membership of any other group. While the GLF group dissolved almost as quickly as it appeared, Stafford consistently spoke out about his misanthropy, “ethical veganism,” and concern with environmental destruction. He openly expressed hatred towards black and brown people, gays, and non-white women. He did not hesitate to state that he would gladly eat the flesh of a human rather than an animal, and he blamed global warming on “the Jews.”

“If it was good enough for Adolf Hitler and Savitri Devi, then it’s good enough for me . . . “

– Matthew Brien Stafford

(Cascadian Coffee Company Discord server 6/30/17)

 

While Matt Stafford participated in the Charlottesville 2.0 Discord server and planned to attend the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA in mid August of 2017, he seems to have decided to remain in the Pacific Northwest to plan for “Operation Eclipse” with the regional Central Oregon Aryans. This did not stop him from encouraging the attendees preparing for Unite the Right and he certainly celebrated  afterwards when he learned that one “antifa supporter” was murdered.

The Daily Stormer, an American neo-Nazi website founded in the summer of 2013 by Andrew Anglin, is another white supremacist platform that Matt Stafford uses to make connections with other neo-Nazis and whose forum he frequents to express his hatred.

Matthew Brien Stafford’s Daily Stormer profile “Robertley”

What caused Matthew Stafford to accumulate so much hate inside himself that he would transform into a resentful racist and homophobe? Was it the absence of a solid father figure? Did he lack enough nurturing by his mother? Was he simply neglected by his parents? We may never know; Matt may never know. But, we do know that Stafford spent a considerable amount of time (over half of his life) making unhealthy decisions which accrued him a lengthy criminal record. At age 17, Stafford already possessed a firearm and was regularly committing theft to fund his alcohol and drug use. In 1995, when he was only 17, Matt was first arrested and convicted for shooting a woman in the leg during a drug deal gone wrong. He would spend the next several years in a maximum security juvenile detention center. Even after being released from the juvenile detention center when he was 21, Stafford continued to find himself back in prison as a result of convictions related to assault, domestic battery,  intimidation, and being a felon in possession of firearms. It is no doubt that Stafford’s gluttonous drug addiction influenced his violent, criminal behavior. As a result of an addiction to heroin and meth, Stafford found himself in a variety of hospitals, including an emergency room in Portland, Oregon, due to overdose. One report describes the condition of Stafford’s bathroom: ” . . . where the defendant injected himself with heroin, and which was littered with hundreds of hypodermic needles and drenched in blood and human feces.”  These conditions, coupled with Stafford’s easy access to high powered weapons, including a grenade launcher, fostered the potential for imminent harm and destruction.

While incarcerated at Green Hill School (a juvenile detention center in Chehalis, Washington), from 1995 to 1998, Stafford made the acquaintance of educator and film maker Heather Dew Oaksen. During these years, Heather would teach imprisoned youth video making skills and eventually, the youth would tell her their stories. Matt Stafford was one of these youths and over the course of the following 18 years, Heather and Matt would stay in contact and Heather would gather material from his life which would compose her documentary Minor Differences. The documentary premiered in 2012, and for the next two years, Matt would tour with Oaksen and the other former incarcerated juveniles featured in the film.  Even though Stafford claims to be partially “racially aware” for four years at this point, photographs from this time reflect a Matt who might be comfortable and cordial in a friend group which includes non-Whites. These puzzling coincidences force us to wonder: Did Matt’s Black colleagues sense his increasing racism? Is Heather Dew Oaksen aware of Matt’s neo-Nazi ideology, and if so, what might be her commentary on it coming from someone who might know him best?

We don’t know exactly what type of family environment Matt Stafford grew up in, but if we believe Stafford when he says, “addicts come from sick families,” then perhaps we should assume his statement comes from experience. We do know that he wants to have a family himself, but at the same time he abandoned his own son and assaulted the mother of his child. We do know that, for some reason, Matt’s half brother stabbed their mother in the chest and then moments later blew his brains out.

Matthew Brien Stafford, left, and his mother, Susan, center.

We now know “My Name Is Hate” is Matthew Brien Stafford. He has a lot to be mad about: He was robbed of the last years of his youth and caged, like an animal, in the prison industrial complex.  His body and mind became mutilated and haggard due to the abuse and developed addiction to drugs. His family life, from early on, was fractured which may have left him hurt and confused. All of this gives reason to lash out at the world. But, he is not alone in that experience, and it is certainly no excuse for him to target his rage and hate onto other human beings simply due to the color of their skin, gender, or sexual preference.   Matt Stafford may have overcome his addictions to drugs, but he has replaced it with something much more dangerous: a desire to emulate and execute Adolf Hitler’s Nazi ideology.  There is no justification for filling voids with a false sense of violent “spirituality” such as Esoteric Hitlerism  postures. Matthew Stafford is a danger to society: He seeks to recruit vulnerable youth and brainwash them with his white supremacist ideology. He seeks to support and carry out a global ethnic cleansing. We must not let this happen.

“Timothy McVeigh was a good man who followed his conscience until the moment of his death. I pray I have his conviction.”

-Matthew James Carroll, Atomwaffen Division member, Washington cell

 

The Atomwaffen Division (AWD) is an extremely violent, destruction oriented, nihilistic, neo-Nazi organization that operates in autonomous and quasi anonymous cells throughout the United States of America. The group formed around 2013, and on October 12, 2015, Florida resident, National Guard soldier, and AWD co-founder Brandon Russell set up an “Atomwaffen Central Topic” discussion thread on the now defunct neo-Nazi website Iron March under the alias of “Odin.” Through this website forum, Russell recruited members from 23 U.S. states and Canada. After the May 19, 2017, Florida murders of his two, short term roommates from the Massachusetts’ cell (Andrew Oneschuk and Jeremy Himmelman)  by AWD co-founder Devon Arthurs (also a roommate), Russell was apprehended while driving towards the Keys with an unidentified individual in a vehicle stocked with rifles, magazines, and hundreds of rounds of ammo. Russell was subsequently incarcerated on May 21, 2017, for possessing bomb making materials which were found in his home. Several months following Russell’s arrest, a Washington cell member, Kaleb James Cole, known by the alias of “Khimaere,” created an updated “Atomwaffen Division New Central Thread” post on September 17, 2017, on the Iron March website, to pick up where Russell left off. However, the effort did not last through the year as the neo-Nazi website was taken offline by creator Alexander “Slavros” Mukhitdinov.

Matthew Carroll’s introduction on the Iron March website. At the time, he was a member of American Vanguard.

 

In the Pacific Northwest, the sole AWD operating cell is located in Washington. Recently, investigative journalists at Pro Publica released the identities of five Atomwaffen Division members, including Washington cell member and Blaine, Washington resident Kaleb James Cole. Read their compelling report here. Soon after, Rose City Antifa released their detailed report on Wade Mendisabal: another Atomwaffen Division member living in Seattle, Washington. Read the results of Rose City Antifa’s in-depth research on Mendisabal here. In collaboration with research obtained by Pacific Northwest antifascists, we introduce to you another Washington cell Atomwaffen member and his neo-Nazi wife: Matthew James Carroll and Rosalee (Rosie) Lorraine (Forsythe) Carroll, popularly known as “Mr. and Mrs. Maci” in online neo-Nazi circles.

Matthew James Carroll was born on June 28, 1988, is a felon, a recovering drug addict, and grew up in Port Orchard, Washington, in a conservative family. He is the son of Mike Carroll and Kathy Scrivner Carroll. Mike Carroll is a Vietnam veteran, a chaplain, a supporter of the militia group the Oath Keepers, and a rabid Facebook user with an affinity for fake news and right-wing memes. Kathy is a surrogate mother for Matthew’s wife Rosalee and is the person who Rosalee credits with making her a Christian. While Matthew is a fervent practicing Christian, his Nazi ideology dominates and his online posts are comprised almost entirely of racist, anti-gay, anti-abortion, misogynist, misanthropic, white supremacy and violence promoting messaging.

Matthew James Carroll, who uses the moniker “Popthereal,” first shows up online in 2005, where he was a frequent poster on the Bluelight.org forums: A harm-reduction forum whose mission is “Helping Drug Users Help Themselves.” Around this time in his life, Matthew appears to have had fairly normal interests. In 2010, he started a blog and a LiveJournal. His Myspace page is still publicly viewable. Matthew started a record label called POW Records where he produced electronic music using the name “Billy the Kids.” Despite being married, Matthew continues to maintain a dating profile on a site called Redhead Passions which shows a last log in by him five weeks ago.  Matthew appears to became more heavily involved in drugs and was arrested on December 11, 2012, and ultimately convicted of a Class B felony for the manufacturing and distributing of a controlled substance. On February 27, 2015, Matthew was charged for another drug-related offense. Matthew participated in inpatient treatment and escaped another conviction by completing two years of drug court and eventually graduated from drug court on January 27, 2017. Shortly thereafter, Matthew found a job and relocated to the Seattle area.

In January 2017, Atomwaffen Division put up flyers at the University of Washington (UW). Mainstream media did not pick up the story, but the Daily Stormer (a neo-Nazi website) did after Rosie Carroll (using the handle @tradtablier on Twitter at the time) tweeted out a Facebook post from a professor at the University of Washington. Atomwaffen Division came to the attention of the Seattle public when, on February 15, 2017, during a production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It, flyers were affixed to the front door of UW’s Glenn Hughes Theatre. The Stranger reported that cast and crew members, “caught a whiff of something that smelled like spray paint backstage.” It turns out, this smell was actually spray adhesive. Additional flyers were found on UW campus the following morning. A few days later, AWD posted a video of the flyering which included the group sieg heiling with the AWD flag outside of Sieg Hall.

Antifascists had been monitoring Matthew Carroll’s Twitter accounts long before this incident. The following morning, Matthew’s Twitter account posted a picture that would be used in the Atomwaffen Division video originally uploaded on February 17th.

In addition, Matthew later tells another Twitter user that AWD uses spray adhesive and then claims credit for the UW incident.

In June 2017, Evergreen State College was still dealing with controversy after professor Bret Weinstein questioned a “Day of Absence” in which White students were asked to leave campus amid activities on and off the college grounds to discuss racism and equity. This controversy resulted in campus being closed due to death threats, national coverage by right-wing shucksters like Joe Rogan and Fox News, and several protests and rallies. The same week, bigots like the Proud Boys and neo-nazi magnet Joey Gibson (Patriot Prayer) were planning to rally at Evergreen, Atomwaffen descended on the campus in the middle to the night to put up more flyers. At the 1:09 mark of this video, a man dressed similarly to how Matthew was dressed in the UW video is seen putting up this flyer.

One of the flyer designs Matthew Carroll and other Atomwaffen Division members put up at the University of Washington and Evergreen.

“Hitler was a man of honor.” – Matthew Carroll

The Atomwaffen Division’s mentions in main stream media increased following the brutal murders committed by Nicholas Giampa in Virginia and Samuel Woodward in California. Both young men were active in AWD and both corresponded with Matthew Carroll over Twitter. Giampa is a 17 year old neo-Nazi who shot his girlfriend’s parents to death after concerns were raised about his Nazi ideology. Woodward is a 20 year old who stabbed a former high school classmate to death presumably because the victim was both Jewish and gay. Matthew Carroll relishes in his self contrived philosophy of “Maciism,” which mirrors Nazi ideology but positions himself, instead of Hitler, as a focal, cult-like figure. Through the self promotion of  “Maciism,” Matthew Carroll serves as a mentor to younger people: Many of whom are teenagers in highschool, or young adults still living at home with their parents. Matthew Carroll preys on youth, online, with an aim of converting and endorsing Nazi ideology.

Samuel Woodward’s Twitter handle @TheFlagStands and alias “Arn”

Matthew Carroll’s neo-Nazi network includes the Washington AWD cell, his contacts with national and Canadian AWD members, and  a variety of neo-Nazis nationally and internationally. In December, Pacific Northwest antifascists gained access to a leaked Discord server called the Cascadian Coffee Company. Matthew Carroll participated in this server which included approximately thirty users including Jimmy Marr from Springfield, Oregon; David Woods and Andrew Oswalt from Corvallis, Oregon; Matthew Lee Combs and Austin Wilkison from Eugene, Oregon; Justin Marbury from Medford, Oregon; and Ian Lawton from Roseburg, Oregon.  The Discord server also included several Washington Atomwaffen members including Wade Mendisabal from Seattle, Washington and Kaleb James Cole from Blaine, Washington.

Matthew Lee Combs aka “blackhat16” states that he was a member of Vanguard America/America Vanguard with Matthew Carroll

Matthew Carroll is very active on Twitter and participated in a Twitter chat group with other white supremacists living in the Pacific Northwest. Other participants included members from American Front, True Cascadia, PDX Stormers, and the Atomwaffen Division. Antifascists in the Pacific Northwest have gained access to these private, Twitter chats which reveal their organizing collaborations, personal relationships with each other, critiques of other white supremacist groups, and identifying information.

Wade Mendisabal aka “Goy Division” and Jimmy Marr banter about AWD flyers that were put up on the University of Washington campus

Matthew Carroll aka “Real Estate Matt” consoles Matthew Lee Combs aka “MLC” after Combs received a membership rejection letter from True Cascadia. Combs’membership was rejected due to his affiliation with American Front, and his wife, Bethany Sherman, would not be allowed to associate with any True Cascadia wives.

 

Matthew Carroll’s wife, Rosalee (Rosie) Lorraine Forsythe Carroll, was born on March 9, 1993, is a drop out from Thomas Jefferson High School (located in Auburn, Washington), and is an unemployed, stay at home wife. She spends most of her days sleeping in late, doing housework, watching television, playing with their cat Heinrich (named after Heinrich Himmler: a leading member of the Nazi Party and one of the people most directly responsible for the Holocaust), wishing she were pregnant so she could contribute to the White Race, and posting racist and bigoted messages on Twitter. Rosie Carroll has busied herself making neo-Nazi propaganda and supporting her husband’s activities with Atomwaffen Division. Both Matthew and Rosie cloak their Nazi ideology with a strict, outwardly Christian presentation. At the same time they are flaunting their love for God and animals, Rosie and Matthew call for the death of gays and abortion doctors, Jews and people of color.

After Rosie Carroll became estranged from her own mother, Rosie became more and more emotionally dependent on Matthew Carroll and his family. As Rosie shares in her tweets, it was Matthew’s mother who converted her into an obsessive Christian. Matthew’s father and mother exhibit racist traits themselves and also cloak that hate with their religion. While it may come to a surprise for Rosie and Matthew’s neighbors, fellow church goers and co-workers that they are neo-Nazis, it will come to no surprise to Matthew’s father, mother, or brother. The family’s ideology has served to foster these extreme beliefs in their son and daughter-in-law.

 

The activities we have tracked the Washington cell of Atomwaffen Divison participating in include: flyering, banner drops, firearms shooting, hiking trips and “urban adventures,” and propaganda creation. There have been some isolated incidences of direct targeting of individuals by members of the Washington cell, and we continue to research the remaining members and their activities.
