Occupy Houston Organizer Dustin Phipps Exposed As American Identity Movement CTO “Gimlet”

Dustin Phipps: Former Leftist turn white supremacist

Dustin Phipps isn’t the first Leftist to flip from one side of the ideological spectrum to the other and he certainly isn’t the first former Leftist to find their way into the membership of American Identity Movement (an American neo-Nazi and white supremacist organization recently referred to as “Identity Evropa”). Readers in the Houston, Texas area will recognize Dustin Phipps, most notably, as a former lead organizer of Occupy Houston during the later part of 2011 and the early part of 2012. After spending the bulk of his thirty and a half years in Texas volunteering with various social justice causes, Dustin now resides in Lehi, Utah (just south of Salt Lake City). He is a dues paying member and Utah Chapter Leader of a white supremacist organization, and serves as the group’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Dustin Blake Phipps uses the alias “Gimlet.” He is a patron donor to the organization and is responsible for building and maintaining the group’s current communication platform on Mattermost which they call “Columbia.”

We can trace Dustin’s membership in Identity Evropa to as early as January 2018 where he had already established a position of authority within the white supremacist group. Dustin, as “Gimlet,” administered an official Identity Evropa Discord Server called the “IE dev team” whose purpose was to serve as a communication platform for software developers within the organization. This team would focus on developing, building, and maintaining communication platforms for the wider group. The number of dues paying members on these Discord communication platforms peaked at just around 800 prior to the Discord chat leaks published by Unicorn Riot.

After Identity Evropa was deplatformed from Discord, the group temporarily communicated by another platform called “Slack.” Again, the group’s Slack chats were leaked and they were subsequently banned from that platform as well. Identity Evropa struggled with maintaining a consistent communication platform for their group. Some regional chapters utilized “Telegram,” and they attempted to build at least one other communication platform referred to as “Mercury.” Even before James Ambrose (the main developer of Mercury) was exposed, the endeavor failed to get off the ground and the project was never made available to the greater membership.

Currently, Dustin Phipps as the CTO provides the ability for the greater white supremacist organization of American Identity Movement to communicate, network, and organize with each other on Mattermost. Established at the beginning of March 2019, this platform has hosted, at it’s peak, just over 400 registered, dues paying members. As pressure on this group ceases to let up from antifascists, we can note a consistent decline in membership with current numbers at just over 250.

Dustin Phipps aka “Gimlet” holds a staff position as Chief Technology Officer within the white supremacist organization.

For over a year and a half, Dustin Phipps aka “Gimlet,” has directed the core of the group’s technology needs.

Aside from Phipps’ technological contributions to American Identity Movement, he has littered multiple university campuses and public venues with white supremacist propaganda. Phipps has traveled to numerous states to participate in national actions and conferences. Some of the activity we have tracked Phipps participating in include: flyering Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, leaving Identity Evropa business cards inside books at The City LIbrary in Salt Lake City, Utah as well as flyering the University of Utah and the downtown Salt Lake City, Utah area. Phipps’ first national action was at “Defend the Rockies” which took place in Colorado in November 2018. This was followed by an anti-immigration action in Chicago in January of 2019 just outside of Rahm Emanuel’s office. In February of 2019, Phipps co-hosted a “Defend Utah” action which followed with his attendance at the third annual Identity Evropa  “Leading Our People Forward” national conference in March of 2019 in the state of Kentucky.

Another anti-immigration demonstration Dustin Phipps attended with Identity Evropa took place in Chicago, Illinois in January of 2019.

Dustin Phipps attempts to conceal his identity while simultaneously professing to be a white identitarian.

March of 2019 would bring a new decline in the organizing efforts of Identity Evropa. As the group was preparing to travel to Kentucky for their annual conference, “Leading Our People Forward,” their members’ chat messages in Discord and Slack were being prepped for publication. A handful of cherry picked individuals by Patrick Casey made up an elite internal group of the organization calling itself Leadership and the Advisory Council. It was simple to join: One mostly just needed to donate a lot of money to the organization. This small fraction of the entire group had planned a rebrand of the organization. In order to try to gain public favor, their strategy turned to appealing to American patriotism. Similar to Patriot Front’s aesthetic but with a strict “no overt Nazi symbolism or rhetoric” in public forums, Identity Evropa became American Identity Movement. This rebranding decision was made by the elite internal group with virtually no knowledge to the majority of their membership. Dustin Phipps attended this conference and the action that followed it in Tennessee.

Once, Dustin Phipps led marches with people of color for economic justice. Now Dustin participates in demonstrations to preserve the white race.

Dustin Phipps once advocated for immigration rights, admired the political work of trans people, and worked alongside of Brown and Black economic and social justice activists. He advocated for humanitarian relief for Haitians and Hondurans. Dustin grew up in a multicultural neighborhood in Katy, Texas, organized with social justice activists while in college in Houston, Texas, and traveled to other non-white majority countries such as the United Arab Emirates and Thailand. In addition to English, Dustin speaks some Spanish and French. But a closer look at Dustin’s years as an economic and social justice activist uncovers some doubts at his commitment to Leftist ideals. For example, he did not support all of the Occupy Wall Street demands. As an Occupy Houston lead organizer, he did not agree that higher education should be free for everyone nor would he declare that everyone deserved a guaranteed income. As a cis-White male, Dustin seemed to frequently talk over women and people of color rather than help amplify their voices. Listen to Dustin, in his own words, what his thoughts were at this time. Dustin seemed to be one for embellishment, visions of grandeur with often changing goals. He claimed to be a medical student, or pre-med, when he merely attained a Bachelor’s Degree in General Biology. Phipps claimed to be a military veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom having served in the Navy. Yet, we are unable to independently confirm that Phipps served in the Navy at all aside from a notation on his resume stating he spent some time employed by the US Navy as a Communications Electrician.

What is not an uncommon phenomena among budding white nationalists is a trend of become radicalized with the 2016 election of Donald Trump. This is the time frame we have tracked Dustin Phipps’ transition from more Leftist views to more Far Right views. While once a trans accepting person, Phipps now joins his fellow American Identity Movement members is directing hatred towards transpeople. While once advocating for immigration rights and humanitarian relief in what some call “third world countries,” now Phipps participates in public anti-immigration demonstrations. While once organizing with Brown and Black people for economic and social justice, now Phipps has bought into the “white genocide” lie.

Prior to becoming a white nationalist, it appears that Dustin Phipps continued to support Manning while she was transitioning to a woman.

Dustin Phipps is a member of one of the main organizations that planned the Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. At this white supremacist rally, one antifascist woman was killed by a neo-Nazi and numerous other antifascists were injured. Even given the facts of the situation, Dustin Phipps is resolved in his support for Alex Fields, the neo-Nazi terrorist who drove his car into a crowd of antifascists murdering one. Recently, Fields was sentenced to life in prison for his crimes.

Dustin Phipps aka “Gimlet” comments on Alex Field’s murder conviction.

What caused Dustin Phipps to embrace white nationalism is a question only he can answer.

A statement by Dustin Phipps aka “Gimlet” which can be interpreted as a possible autobiographical statement.

David Zsutty: Neo-Nazi in Law School

On March 6th, 2019, the independent media outlet Unicorn Riot published the internal chat logs of the neo-Nazi group Identity Evropa. Hundreds of thousands of messages were leaked from the group’s member-only Discord server, which revealed extreme racism, white supremacism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, and misogyny. Since the breach, antifascist groups have sifted through the messages and tied real people to the usernames, exposing dozens of members across the United States. Identity Evropa helped plan the massive Nazi rally in Charlottesville in 2017 and the organization is currently being sued due to the ramifications of that event. Today, we are identifying the Identity Evropa member “Tyler Hess” as Chapman University student David Michael Zsutty (DOB 3/21/1987) from Oceanside, California.

David Michael Zsutty used the pseudonym “TylerHess” on the Identity Evropa server.

Zsutty is explicitly racist and anti-Semitic in many of his messages. In one message, he defends the Charlottesville attacker James Alex Fields, a Nazi who rammed his car into a crowd of people who were counter protesting the 2017 Unite the Right rally and who was recently sentenced to life in prison as a result of his terror attack. Zsutty thinks that “Fields is completely innocent, perhaps guilty of negligence at the very most.” More than a dozen people suffered serious injuries and Heather Heyer was killed in the attack. In another message, Zsutty shares his anti-Semitic conspiracy theory, saying that he “suspect[s] that Jews are intermarrying with whites who share similar traits, such as narcissism, schizophrenia, socio/psychopathy, a certain low cunning born from a lack of morals, etc.” Zsutty also disparages his nonwhite classmates in the chat, writing that they “lack the analytical skill of our people.” In another message, he says that he wanted to be “study buddies” with a conservative woman in his class, but then he learned that she had a “mulatto” son.

David Zsutty shares how he feels about his non-white classmates.

David Zsutty thinks that the Charlottesville vehicular attacker, James Alex Fields, is innocent. Fields injured dozens and killed Heather Heyer when he rammed his vehicle into a crowd of people protesting a massive Nazi convergence in 2017.

David Zsutty slips some anti-Semitic conspiracy theories into the Identity Evropa chats.

Zsutty also discusses his family in the Discord chats. He paints a biographical picture of his parents, who had him when they were in their “mid thirties.” His mother’s side is “Mayflower and Revolution,” while his father’s side is part Prussian and German. Zsutty’s family fits this profile perfectly, as his father, Michael Zsutty (DOB 5/26/1951), is a full 36 years older than David.

David mentions that his parents were in their mid-thirties when they had him, which we confirmed.

David’s father, Michael Zsutty, was born in 1951 and lives in Oceanside, California.

Michael Zsutty lives in Oceanside, California. David mentions him several times on Discord. One message suggests that his dad may share his white nationalist views, and that the lack of a Google doodle caused him to start agreeing with David. Michael Zsutty is at the very least a far-right MAGA fan, as evidenced by his Facebook. He is active in Oceanside and has harassed houseless people in the area. David applauds his dad’s anti-houseless actions, noting that he went from donating money to “helping a anti hobo crusade in our hometown.” Michael is part of the Facebook group “Take Back Oceanside,” which is full of rich white people panicking about poor and houseless folks.

David writes that his dad is involved in anti-homeless activities in his hometown of Oceanside, California. He is part of a group called “Take back Oceanside.”

David suggests that his dad, Michael Zsutty, shares some of his white supremacist views.

Michael Zsutty plugs his anti-homeless group, “Take back Oceanside.” Kudos to the people who have “tried to intimidate” this disgusting group!

Michael is upset that someone is taking shelter from the elements in a tent. How dare houseless folks take shelter!

Michael made a Facebook post about a vehicle he finds “suspicious.”

Another shared interest between Michael and David is running. Michael is part of a running club in Oceanside, which hosts weekend runs. David is also an avid runner, and often brags about it on the Discord server. On November 22nd, 2018, (Thanksgiving) he tells his fellow white nationalists that he “ran a 10K this morning while nearing the end of a 30 hour fast.” David did this run with his father, in Oceanside, California. The 10k was part of the 13th Annual O’side Turkey Trot, and David’s results are available online.

David talks about running on the Discord server.

On Thanksgiving morning 2018, David and Michael Zsutty ran in the 13th Annual Oceanside Turkey Trot. David notes this on Discord.

David Zsutty was active offline as well, flyering and participating in actions. Near the end of 2018, David helped other Identity Evropa members drop an anti-immigrant banner in Wickenburg, Arizona. He has been active in spreading Identity Evropa posters and stickers around his state, mainly targeting universities in Southern California. David is cautious about where he posts Identity Evropa propaganda and stickers, making sure to steer clear of his own college campus. He makes sure to dress “normie” on illegal flyering outings, wearing a hat and different attire. He even offers advice to other Identity Evropa members who fear they may be doxxed, such as a user named “Wotan Klan” from Georgia, who is concerned about footage of him at the deadly Unite the Right rally from 2017.

David is a chair of the Federalist Society at Chapman University. The Federalist Society has been around for several decades and is focused on reviving conservative and libertarian ideas within the American legal system. Their influence has peaked during the Trump era, and they were central in the rise of Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. The Society has received substantial donations from the Koch brothers and the Mercer family.

David Zsutty is chair of the Federalist Society at his university.

In the Discord chats, Zsutty recommends the Federalist Society to another Identity Evropa member with the screen name “Logan.” Earlier this year, HuffPost revealed that “Logan” is actually Logan K. Piercy, a Marine who attended the Unite the Right rally. He asks members of the group for political news sources, writing that “I can’t say my main news source is Fash the Nation.” Fash the Nation is a Nazi podcast which is part of The Right Stuff, a podcast network created by YouTube white supremacist Mike Peinovich. To this, David recommends the Cato Institute and the Federalist Society.

David Zsutty recommends the Federalist Society to Logan K. Piercy, who gets his news from “Fash the Nation.”

David Michael Zsutty joined Identity Evropa in June of 2018. Right off the bat, he asks about pursuing a libel or defamation lawsuit against the ADL or SPLC, liberal groups which monitor far right activity. Both of these groups consider Identity Evropa (now American Identity Movement) a hate group. Zsutty brings up the idea of legal action because he is a law student at Chapman University, which is in Orange, California. In another message, he exclaims that he would love to see a Supreme Court case on doxxing. Frivolous filings about doxxing have made their way to the courts, such as when the Weed Nazi Bethany Sherman tried to attack Eugene Antifa via the courts with a laughable defamation suit.

David Zsutty suggests legal action against liberal watchdog groups the ADL and SPLC. Both of these groups have justly labeled Identity Evropa/American Identity Movement as a hate group.

David Zsutty AKA “TylerHess” wants to see the courts institute penalties for doxxing.

Many of the white supremacists who have been exposed in the ongoing #IdentifyEvropa project are active or former members of the military. David Zsutty joins this list, as he was part of the US Air Force for several years. He trained in Texas and was part of the Air Force for six years, working as an Airborne Cryptologic Language Analyst. In 2015 he became a Staff Sergeant. He eludes to his involvement in the military at times on Discord. In one message, he says that he “actually lost a ton of weight after I got out due to no more stress or circadian rhythm disruption.”

Michael Zsutty posts a picture of his son David Zsutty. David spent six years in the Air Force, where he was a Staff Sergeant. Now, with taxpayer support, he is attending law school to take his hate to the courtroom.

After the internal messages of Identity Evropa were leaked and dozens of their members were doxxed, Patrick Casey renamed the group “American Identity Movement.” David remained a member, using the same name “TylerHess” on the group’s internal Mattermost server.

David Zsutty AKA “TylerHess” is SoCal chapter leader on the American Identity Movement’s Mattermost server.

David Zsutty AKA “TylerHess” supports the ultra-violent Nazi group RAM, which traveled to assault anti-racist counter protesters at events in 2017.

David Michael Zsutty is a white supremacist who is part of the neo-Nazi group American Identity Movement (formerly Identity Evropa). He uses the alias “TylerHess” to mask his identity and freely espouse his bigoted views within the group’s leaked chats. He defaced college campuses in California with white nationalist stickers and fliers. He is currently a law student at Chapman University, a private institution that claims to be inclusive and empowering. If the University values these ideals, they should kick out David Zsutty for his participation in a hate group that violently opposes inclusivity. American Identity Movement/Identity Evropa was central in coordinating the violent Nazi “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville. Please contact the University and demand that they give David Michael Zsutty the boot!

Proud Boys & Nazis Come to Eugene: Analyzing the “America First” Rally

Eugene, Oregon May 5, 2019 Harlow Road Overpass

On May 5, 2019, a group called “Oregon Women for Trump” held an “America First” rally and flag wave on the Harlow Road overpass in Eugene, Oregon. Community members quickly organized a successful counter protest, showing that our city will not be silent in the face of hate. The rally planned on bringing alt-right grifter Joey Gibson and violent alt-right brawler turned congressional candidate, Joey Nations, to speak. Neither of them showed up. Instead, more than a dozen Proud Boys and several neo-Nazis arrived. In this article, we will highlight some of the rally attendees and provide more background on the rally hosts.

 

Gordon Wesley Cronk Jr.

One of the many Proud Boys in attendance was Gordon Cronk Jr. This bonehead-esque Proud Boy did not come in the staple Yellow and Black Fred Perry but had a “Proud Boy” tattoo on his forearm. Getting a “Proud Boy” tattoo is the third stage undergone by members of the group. To advance above the third degree, Proud Boys must get into a fight with anti-fascists. Gordon has already tried his hand at violence at previous far-right rallies. He was part of the October 13, 2018 “Flash Mob” protest by Joey Gibson where violent Proud Boy Kim Costello struck several protesters with a baton. Gordon Cronk Jr. was in Pioneer Square on January 19, 2019 with fellow Proud Boy Cole Scott, and then joined Joey Gibson’s demasking brigade despite having a mask on.

Gordon Cronk Jr. is restrained after a brief scuffle erupted at the May 5th “America First” overpass rally in Eugene. Cronk was involved and may have assaulted someone in the chaos. He briefly drops his mask in this photo.

On January 19th, Joey Gibson and his goons morphed into an anti-abortion march and harassed pro-choice protesters, threatening to “demask” any “ANTIFA.” Cole Scott and Gordon Cronk Jr. joined Gibson as he terrorized the streets of Portland and turned a blind eye to masked Nazis marching with him.

Gordon Cronk is on Facebook as “John Smith,” and his profile contains Nazi imagery and memes. His cover photo features the Black Sun, a fascist symbol that dates back to Nazi Germany. One of his former profile pictures is a meme of the Christchurch mosque shooter, widely admired by the alt-right after he murdered fifty people in New Zealand. Other alt-right memes run amok on his profile, from clowns to crusades and the classic Pepe dog whistle.

 

Gordon Cronk, “John Smith” on Facebook, posted a Black Sun cover photo. The Black Sun or Sonnenrad is a popular Nazi symbol which was used by Hitler’s SS.

 

Gordon Cronk poses for a picture with fellow Proud Boy Jason James. Both flash the “white power” hand sign.

Gordon has a history of MMA, though short-lived and fruitless. However, he has a much more expansive history of petty crime and violence. In 2008, Gordon was charged with assault and harassment. In 2010, he was arrested on first degree burglary and robbery charges, and unlawful use of a weapon, all of which are felonies under Oregon law. In 2013, he found himself charged for interfering with an officer and was sentenced to 30 days in jail. Gordon Wesley Cronk Jr. is married to Rachel Cronk, who is supportive of his white nationalist views, and they currently live in Hillsboro, Oregon.

 

Gordon’s wife, Rachel Cronk, is supportive of his Proud Boy activities. She flashes the Proud Boy “white power” hand sign in her Facebook profile picture. She lives with Gordon in Hillsboro.

 

Gordon Cronk Jr. has a long criminal history, like many of Patriot Prayer’s remaining followers. In 2008, he was charged with assault. In 2010, he burglarized a home. Then, in 2013, he was charged again. He continues a career of violence with the Proud Boys.

 

Noah Bucchi

Oregon State University student Noah Bucchi markets himself as a documentary film maker, without bias or motive, and has gained sympathy from local news from these claims. His actions, participation, and affiliations, however, show a clear alignment with the alt right faction of the Pacific Northwest. Bucchi was part of the far-right entourage which attacked Cider Riot, a Portland bar, on May 1, 2019. Before that, he harassed participants in the Womxn’s March in Portland. Bucchi has joined the gaggle of grifters desperate for YouTube views, like alt-right mythomaniac Andy Ngo and convicted child molester Matthew “Deme” Cooper. Apparently the far-right riot outside Cider Riot did not satisfy his taste for violence and views, as he made the drive to Eugene to join the “America First” rally with his brother Jack Bucchi.

 

Noah Bucchi records as his Nazi pals attack an antifascist event at a Portland bar on May 1st, 2019. The attack was organized by David Willis, a violent white nationalist who also attended the Eugene rally.

 

Noah Bucchi and his friends from Lake Oswego teamed up to harass folks at the Portland Womxn’s March.

 

Noah Bucchi films at the May 5th “America First” rally in Eugene.

Despite his claims of impartiality, Noah Bucchi shares the same ideas as the fascists he rubs shoulders with. Bucchi is an Infowars fanboy and conspiracy theory peddler, as evidenced by his Twitter account. In one Tweet, he drops the “Globalist” dogwhistle, a term with a history of anti-Semitic connotations. On Instagram, Bucchi posted a photo with Milo Yiannopolous, the neo-Nazi propogandist who became a household name after bringing his hate to college campuses around the country. Noah is the son of Kenneth Bucchi, an attempted author who enjoyed air time on some national television networks until it was revealed that he lied about working for the CIA. Noah has produced several videos, though they are far from documentaries. One video, Bioshock and the Great Prophet: Alex Jones, uploaded to his Vimeo, is a compilation of Alex Jones speeches that he made to “get the blood pumping.”

 

Noah promotes his father’s book on his Twitter account. Kenneth Bucchi claims to be a “veteran of the CIA drug wars,” a claim that had to be publicly refuted by the CIA.

 

Noah Bucchi shares an Alex Jones compilation to his Twitter account. To get the blood pumping, of course.

 

Noah Bucchi shares another video from his Vimeo and threatens to “run down” Globalists, something he is fixated on. Globalism is often fodder for alt-right conspiracy theories.

 

Noah Bucchi poses for a photo with Candace Owens, a talking head for Turning Point USA and a defender of Hitler. Once again, Noah states that he is taking on the “Globalists.”

 

Andrew Allwander

Eugene resident and neo-Nazi Andrew Allwander fit in at the “America First” rally, wearing a “Not Today Antifa” shirt, sold by Infowars. Allwander was recording the rally and has uploaded more than a dozen videos from it to his YouTube channel “MaharlikaAWA.” This was the same channel which Allwander uploaded videos displaying his collection of Nazi memorabilia. Andrew Allwander practices martial arts and has offered to train other alt-right rally goers in fighting techniques to attack antifascists. He has traveled to Portland a number of times for Joey Gibson’s rallies, brushing shoulders with the Proud Boys and other ultra-violent racist groups. Allwander has also traveled to Salem to attend rallies promoted by Joey Nations. Allwander brought a flag to the Eugene rally, which he hung on the overpass fence. The flag was a pine tree flag, with the slogan “An Appeal to Heaven” printed on it. This flag has been used by the alt-right before and made an appearance in Charlottesville.

In Discord chats made public by Unicorn Riot, white nationalists discuss using the “Appeal to Heaven” flag at rallies. Multiple Charlottesville attendees made use of the flag, like this neo-Nazi who made an “Appeal to Heaven” shield. Allwander likely brought the flag to the Eugene rally to act as a dogwhistle.

Andrew Allwander was at Gibson’s June 30, 2018 rally, which was one of the most violent alt-right rallies on the West coast, when busloads of Proud Boys converged in downtown Portland to attack anti-racists with the help of the state. Allwander journeyed from Eugene to Portland to attend another Gibson rally on August 4, 2018, as did Chris Kilgore, another Eugene Nazi. When Turning Point USA brought their far-right circus act to the University of Oregon campus in Eugene, Andrew Allwander and Proud Boy James Johnson flocked to the event. After the “America First” rally, Allwander posted an interview with Noah Bucchi.

Cole Robert Scott

Cole Robert Scott is a Patriot Prayer regular turned Proud Boy with a history of employment within the Republican party. Until late 2017, Scott was a committee member for the California Republican party. While in college, he was a part of the group Young Americans for Liberty. His ascent from run of the mill republican to hate group member was a fast one, fueled by Joey Gibson’s fascist friendly rallies. Cole began attending Patriot Prayer rallies near the end of 2018, when Gibson’s events became more explicitly about attacking leftists.

 

Cole Scott’s LinkedIn page shows his ties to the Republican party, which go back to 2015.

 

Cole Scott was a Committee Member of the California Republican Party until late 2017, when he moved to Kansas City. Cole began attending Patriot Prayer rallies in the end of 2018.

On November 17, 2018, Cole Scott went to Haley Adam’s misogynistic “HimToo” rally in downtown Portland and was spotted tearing down anti-fascist posters with Portland resident Damir Cordalija. After that, Cole joined Gibson’s violent mob as they terrorized pro-choice protesters on January 19, 2019 in downtown Portland. This was after the group rallied outside of an IWW office in Portland and vowed to demask any antifascists they encountered. When Patriot Prayer surrounded a small group of protesters downtown, Cole reached into his pocket, seemingly reaching for a gun, before threatening a union worker. At the Eugene rally, Cole was dressed in the familiar yellow and black Proud Boy Fred Perry. He spent the rally yelling obscenities at antifascists and threatening violence, all while safely tucked behind a line of riot police.

Rally Hosts

Michelle Yates

The Eugene rally was created by several women who run the Facebook page “Oregon Women for Trump.” One is Michelle Yates, who lives in Springfield and is a far-right Christian who holds vile anti-abortion views. Michelle is a frequent Patriot Prayer attendee. On Twitter, Michelle retweeted a post pushing the conspiracy theory suggesting that Voodoo Donuts, a popular donut destination, is running a child sex trafficking ring. The conspiracy theory was dubbed “DonutGate,” similar to the 2017 “PizzaGate” hoax which lead to a shooting in Washington DC. She also is a follower of the “Q Anon” conspiracy, a bizarre, never-ending conspiracy prominent in many far-right circles.

 

Michelle Yates posts a picture from her May 5th, 2019 “America First” rally in Eugene. Yates holds far-right views, like many of the rally attendees.

 

Michelle Yates shares a YouTube video promoting a wholly unsubstantiated and far-right conspiracy theory about the popular donut shop, Voodoo Donuts.

 

Michelle Yates ‘likes’ a video on Twitter about QAnon, a far-right “deep state” conspiracy theory followed religiously by its believers. The Twitter user she ‘likes’ is none other than Sheila Zilinsky, an alt-right conspiracy theory peddler who has who has stated that Jerry Brown should be “hanging from a rope.”

 

Michelle Yates, pictured on right, is an anti-abortion activist. In this photo, she wears a shirt which mocks Black Lives Matter.

 

Michelle Yates defends a racist comment made by Roseanne Barr and agrees with her. Michelle believes that racism should be dismissed, and people should stop getting “BUTT HURT,” because, of course, she is “NOT a PC person.” Thanks Michelle!

 

Janira Sanchez-Brannigan

Another rally host is a Salem real estate agent named Janira Brannigan. Janira is staunchly anti-choice and anti-immigrant and testified in front of the Oregon Legislature against a house bill which would allow undocumented Oregonians to receive drivers’ licenses. She calls undocumented immigrants “criminals,” despite the fact that undocumented residents are not in criminal violation. During her testimony, she cites a statistic about homicides which is likely pulled directly from OFIR, Oregon’s anti-immigrant hate group with numerous ties to white nationalists. Janira is one of Joey Nation’s few supporters and assists with his campaign. Nations was a Patriot Prayer regular who rallied and fought alongside neo-Nazis at a number of Portland rallies. He is running for office in Oregon congressional district five.

Janira supports and campaigns for Joey Nations. Before deciding to run for office, Nations attended Joey Gibson’s August 6th event on the Portland waterfront and was caught on video striking a counter protester who was already on the ground.

 

Carol Pressnall Leek

One of the main organizers behind “Oregon Women for Trump” and the Eugene “America First” rally is Carol Pressnall Leek. Carol kicked off the wave of far-right rallies that have plagued the Pacific Northwest with her 2017 “March 4 Trump” in Lake Oswego. Carol originally planned to host the rally with former Lake Oswego business owner Kevin Kerwin, but she distanced herself from him after his racist Facebook posts were publicized. She said his comments were “disgusting,” and that “[the] event is certainly not about hate for anyone or anything.” Carol’s claims proved untrue as the rally unfolded. She recruited the “Three-Percenters” as security for the event, a racist militia with ties to domestic terrorism and the deadly Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally. They spent the rally protecting KKK Imperial Wizard Steven Shane Howard as his band of Nazis harassed counter protesters.

After the March 4, 2017 Trump rally, Joey Gibson kicked off his career of hate rallies. Carol Leek was present at many of his events, including his August 6, 2017 rally on the Portland Waterfront. After the event, she posted a photo of Kristopher and Audra Foster to Facebook. Our friends at Rose City Antifa recently published a thorough dossier on Kristopher Foster, a neo-Nazi radicalized by Joey Gibson’s events. In addition to Kristopher, Carol is a close associate of Joey Nations. She was at his rally in Salem on July 15, 2017 brandishing a shield. Like her fellow organizers, Carol Leek is a “Q Anon” follower and conspiracy theorist. Carol Leek is a coach for life coaches and lives in the Keizer area. You can leave a review for her here.

 

Carol Leek uploaded a photo of Kristopher and Audra Foster after she rallied with Patriot Prayer on August 6th, 2017.

Carol Leek is part of a QAnon group on Facebook. “Red Pill-ing” is a term used by fascists to describe instilling fascist beliefs in a person.

 

Our dedication to confronting white nationalism

Carol Leek has promised to hold more “America First” rallies across Lane County. As with the May 5, 2019 rally, they will surely feature more fascists and neo-Nazis. Eugene Antifa is dedicated to confronting white nationalism in whatever form it manifests, and we will continue to do so. We would like to thank all the members of our community who, on very short notice, came together to defend their community against racist and fascist intrusion. An anonymous and autonomous call for a counter “flag wave” was made, and anti-racists in Eugene and Springfield answered the call.

There has been much handwringing about what the “correct” way to confront fascism is. We want to remind groups and individuals that critique (shared internally) should always be welcomed but discouraging people from confronting hate is not. When fascists are unimpeded and granted a platform, they become more bold and violent. We refuse to allow fascists the freedom to organize and network, because in doing so, we allow fascist ideas to gain a foothold in our communities. There is an element of risk involved in confronting violent fascists and the state, but that risk should not deter resistance. Drumming up the risk only isolates and harms the people who choose to confront it and limits our potential as a community. We are most powerful when we stand together and respect a diversity of tactics.

Eugene Antifa follows the St. Paul principles:

1. Our solidarity will be based on respect for a diversity of tactics and the
plans of other groups.
2. The actions and tactics used will be organized to maintain a separation of
time or space.
3. Any debates or criticisms will stay internal to the movement, avoiding any
public or media denunciations of fellow activists and events.
4. We oppose any state repression of dissent, including surveillance,
infiltration, disruption and violence. We agree not to assist law enforcement
actions against activists and others.

“Ryan”and James Mason: An Atomwaffen Affair

Well well, what do we have here??

“Ryan” and James Mason, neo-Nazi organizers in Denver, Colorado

It appears fascists from the neo-Nazi killing death cult Atomwaffen Division have been gathering in the heart of Denver, Colorado’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, courtesy of host James Nolan Mason, infamous white supremacist and ideological leader for this particular group of losers.

Despite being a small, decentralized groups of incels and edgelords, the men connected to Atomwaffen Division are responsible for several murders. And, here they are, making pilgrimages to Capitol Hill’s El Tovar apartment complex across from the State Capital, to hang out and plan with James Mason in his Grant Street, government subsidized apartment.

Atomwaffen Division headquarters in Denver, Colorado

Mason’s apartment is a rendezvous point for local and national Atomwaffen Division Nazis and fascists to come visit while discussing with Mason apocalyptic visions of death, destruction, white power lone wolf attacks and basically, all things nihilist while planning how they can destroy civilization in the world.

James Mason meets with neo-Nazis “Ryan” and “Sean” at his apartment complex

According to ramblings found online posted by Atomwaffen Division detailing their terrorist ambitions, they claim they are, in part, inspired by Mason’s book SEIGE. One member even bragged about having maps of the country’s power grids. The idea to sabotage the nation’s power structures is apparently part of their plans towards a self proclaimed revolution. Yes, nihilism runs rampant with these edgelords.

“Ryan” posts a group photo of Atomwaffen Division on his Gab account

But just who is James Mason, the fascist behind these killers? Who is the man driving this death cult?

James Nolan Mason was born in Ohio in 1952, and since age 14, has been fully immersed in Nazism. Guess if you’re going to be a loser, why do a half-assed job when you could commit to being a loser for your entire life!

At age 14, Mason began correspondence with, and joined as a youth member, George Lincoln Rockwell’s American Nazi Party. At age 18, boom, he’s a man, and these bozos swear him in as a full fledged member of the renamed National Socialist White People’s Party.

James Mason, neo-Nazi

After several years flirting about with several neo-Nazi affiliated groups, Mason began hanging out with Joseph Tommasi of the National Socialist Liberation Front. Tommasi had an ideology of armed guerilla struggle that Mason continues to espouse to this day. They believed white power lone wolves as the saviors of the white race through autonomous violent actions of destruction, mayhem and murder.

Time has not tempered this ideology.

Mason continued to dabble with various Nazi groups throughout the late 60’s into the 70’s, and in the early 80’s, he began writing essays for his newsletter Siege. During the 70’s, nazis of all stripes jumped on the bandwagon of the esoteric Hindu-Aryan ideas of Savitri Devi. Mason was no different. Following all the rage, he hooked up with Anton LaVey of the Satanic Church and befriended figures in the Satanic circles, including American Front leader Boyd Rice and Michael Moynihan.

Eventually, Mason began corresponding with cult figure Charles Manson, whose followers were responsible for a string of horrific murders in California. In hopes of furthering Manson’s vision of Helter-skelter, an apocalyptic war rising from racial tensions, James Mason kept up a lengthy correspondence with him.

Mason soon became one of Manson’s biggest fan boys, even naming his organization The Universal Order at Manson’s suggestion. Soon, Mason was touring the Nazi circuit, doing interviews while attempting to maintain a high profile. Fortunately, his brand of hate and destruction wasn’t embraced by his fellow Nazis and after being relegated to the sidelines, Mason moved to Las Animas, Colorado, where it appears his fondness for underage girls led to an investigation by the local cops. That didn’t go anywhere, because like the pigs they are, the cops also got involved with hanging out and partying with Mason and the underage girls. This lead to the cops being investigated, but no surprise that no charges came of this because, well, cops crossing the line with Nazis and underage girls seem to be an acceptable practice within police departments.

James Mason and John Cameron Denton of Texas pose in Mason’s Denver, Colorado apartment

Mason soon left town under a cloud of suspicion, fading further into obscurity while living off the residuals from his books which are readily available on Amazon.com.

James Mason has been a nobody for the last 30 years and forgotten to the annals of time until a few Atomwaffen Division members sought him out to republish his trashy literature. Since then, a series of murders in rapid succession committed by members of the so called Atomwaffen Division rocked the country, putting the spotlight back on this long forgotten racist and his ideology.

Members of the Atomwaffen Division have posted pictures online of themselves in James Mason’s Capitol Hill apartment. We wonder how the residents and neighbors in the government subsidized El Tovar housing complex feel knowing this dangerous man and his murderous followers gather regularly to plan the demise of folks just like them?

A still frame from Der Spiegel shows James Mason posing with two Atomwaffen Division members

Perhaps the closest Atomwaffen Division member to James Mason is “Ryan” who also lives nearest to Mason in Colorado. “Ryan” has been archiving James Mason’s photographs and other Nazi paraphernalia for a couple years now. He regularly visits Mason and serves as his secretary to the outside world of the Internet. “Ryan” assists Mason in uploading audio recordings and written pieces to Atomwaffen Division and Siege Culture websites.

A still frame from Frontline shows Atomwaffen Division members Wade Mendisabal, Grayson Denton, and “Ryan” (unmasked) at a heavy metal concert in Texas

Wade Mendisabal, formerly of Seattle, Washington and “Ryan” pose in standard Atomwaffen Division costumes

Apartment #10 has become quite the Mecca for neo-Nazis. Atomwaffen Division members have traveled across the country to meet and be photographed with the otherwise lonely James Mason. Some of these members include the murderer Samuel Woodward from California and the Denton brothers, Grayson and John, from Texas.

Time to remove the hive.

The Weed Nazis Rent House To White Power Couple: Meet The Kilgores

Christopher and Stephany Kilgore

At the end of last year, we informed the Eugene, Oregon community of a neo-Nazi couple, Matthew Combs and Bethany Sherman, living near the heart of downtown Eugene at 1177 West 11th Avenue. Since Combs and Sherman fled Eugene to southern Oregon, we have observed a steady coming and going of neo-Nazis and white nationalist sympathizers occupying the house owned by Bethany Sherman on West 11th Avenue. Early this past summer, we reported on Matthew Brien Stafford, an “esoteric Hitlerist” from the Seattle, Washington area, who took up a brief residence at the house before leaving town in his white van. Shortly after his departure in late summer, a new couple moved in, fresh from Alabama. We recently learned of their detailed white supremacist views and were not surprised that Combs and Sherman, yet again, made their house available to violent white supremacists. Christopher Alan Kilgore (birthdate: 12/30/84) wasted no time in immersing himself in the violent, fascist rallies hosted by Vancouver, Washington resident Joey Gibson of Patriot Prayer. On social media, Christopher details his plans and motivations to travel from Sacramento to Seattle, to Colorado and even Washington D.C. to attend similar fascist magnet rallies. His wife, Stephany Michelle Kilgore, (birthdate: 5/18/87) publicly expresses her similar white nationalist views that she shares with her husband and has taken on the “trad waifu” role of stay-at-home-mom, pregnant with their third child, and discouraged from seeking employment from her husband who likely survives off a military veteran’s pension.

Christopher Alan Kilgore has two Facebook accounts through which he connects with other fascists and shares fascist memes and imagery. One account is held under his name, and is connected to a number of Pacific Northwest Proud Boys and white nationalists associated with American Guard, a group which Patriot Prayer henchman Tiny Toese shared his support for. American Guard was founded in 2016 by hardcore racist skinhead Brien James, who is Facebook friends with Kilgore. Christopher’s profile contains far-right conspiracy theories and white nationalist memes. In addition to this account, he maintains a secondary profile under the name ‘Thorium Vain.’ This account features even more openly racist, anti-Semitic, and xenophobic content. He frequently shares his admiration of Augusto Pinochet, the former Chilean dictator responsible for political executions. His ‘Likes’ include White Dragon Dojang, the brand belonging to Andrew Allwander,

Sharing anti-communist memes that praise former dictator Augusto Pinochet

RWDS is an acronym for “Right Wing Death Squad” which are groups that advocate for killing Jews and Blacks.

This racist statement by Kilgore references Zyklon B, a pesticide used by Nazi Germany during the Holocaust to murder approximately one million people in gas chambers installed in extermination camps.

Christopher Kilgore aka “Thorium Vain” expresses his Islamophobia

Christopher Kilgore aka “Thorium Vain” advocates for the death of communists and admits premeditation for physical violence that might result in his jail time.

Alongside his Facebook accounts, Kilgore possesses an account on the alternative platform MeWe favored by the far right. His account is conveniently named Chris Kilgore, and is closely connected to other white nationalists, including many American Guard members. On MeWe, he promotes his fundraiser pages. In a Facebook post, Chris promises a full transition to Gab, once it is back online. Gab is a website long used by white supremacists, which was recently taken down after user Robert Bowers murdered congregants of a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

On September 2, 2018, Chris Kilgore uploaded photos to ‘Thorium Vain’ that show a minivan with ‘Nazi’ spray painted on it. The photos were also circulated on his partner Stef Kilgore’s account. In a comment, Stef suggests that they were targeted because the previous residents of the house were “doxxed.” Stef and Chris Kilgore are living at 1177 West 11th Avenue, a house previously occupied by Bethany Sherman and Matthew Combs, who fled Eugene after their white nationalist beliefs and connections were made public. Matthew Combs was closely tied to the violent neo-Nazi group American Front. The property has become a hub for white nationalists.

On Facebook, Chris and Stephany shared photos of their van with four flat tires and the word “NAZI”

Stephany suggests that it could be known they live in Bethany Sherman’s house. Christopher aka “Thorium Vain” confesses that he posts anti-communists flyers around Eugene.

Christopher aka “Thorium Vain” suggests that he cannot be evicted because his landlords share his white supremacist ideology. He also suggests that his income is related to his military veteran status. He also confesses to having anger issues

Chris’s partner, Stephany Michelle Kilgore (nee Hummel) shares his white nationalist, and racist  views.

An example of Stephany Kilgore’s insensitivity to racial slurs against Blacks.

In one Facebook post, Stephany Kilgore claims that Google is overacting to Patrick Little, the neo-Nazi who has been traveling across the country filming himself conducting anti-Semitic stunts.

Patrick Little, a former Sergeant in the Marines, is a failed candidate for the United States Senate in 2018 (he received over 60k votes). Since losing the primary, Patrick Little has been traveling the country on what he calls his “Naming the Jew” tour. He was seen on street corners across the country with handmade signs, some of which denied the Holocaust while others exclaimed “Expel The Jews.” In the Bay Area, he attempted to fly a blimp exclaiming “Jews Rape Kids.” Patrick Little is also a prolific poster on Gab. Recently, Microsoft threatened to de-host Gab after Little suggested Jews should be raised as livestock. Currently, he is attempting to coordinate “It’s OK To Be White” protests across the country.

Some neo-Nazis wear ties. Patrick Little spreading his message of hatred for Jews.

Patrick Little is a Holocaust denier.

On August 5, 2018, Christopher Kilgore created a page on Facebook titled ‘Veterans against Domestic Terrorism.’ The page is linked to a GoFundMe, where he boasts the large membership (Two people) and incentivizes donors by promising videos of himself pepper sprayed. Kilgore intends to gather funds to enable him and Alan Swinney to travel across the country to attend far right events and attack antifascists.

Swinney promotes Islamophobia on MeWe

The pair attended Joey Gibson’s August 4th ‘Freedom Rally’ with violence in mind. Armed with flag poles and outfitted in a hodge-podge of protective gear, they joined forces with the racist bumble-bee Proud Boys to attack community members. Kilgore and Swinney were both part of a brawl with antifascists, in which Kilgore claims to have broken an antifascist’s fingers. He is seen on video (in orange) swinging his wooden flag pole.

Alan James Swinney (birthdate: 5/18/70) is a white nationalist who, until last year, lived in Midland, Texas. In fall of 2017, Swinney purchased several acres of land near Romeo, Colorado. He has invited other ‘patriots’ to join him on this land, which he wants to turn into a self-sustainable community ‘free of liberals.’ He brags that he has more than four thousand rounds of ammunition stocked. Swinney is currently living off the money earned from his Bitcoin mining adventures and what he saved from his time working in the oil and gas industry. He relies heavily on donations, the majority of which are routed through his PayPal account. With this money, he travels across the country, bouncing between far-right rallies. He lives out of his white Toyota pickup, sleeping in campgrounds and in his truck between rallies. He has a Planet Fitness membership, which he calls his “office” and is where he works out in order to train to assault antifascists. The gym, which his membership allows him to access locations nation-wide) also serves as his opportunity to shower since he lives out of his truck. Please call the headquarters and demand that they revoke his membership: (603) 750-0001.

Swinney shares a photo of his truck, which he sleeps in while traveling from rally to rally.

Swinney is a Proud Boy, and frequently rallies alongside Pacific Northwest Proud Boys like Ethan Nordean. Alan also promotes xenophobic and white nationalist content on social media. On his MeWe account, he shares memes about ‘white genocide,’ a white supremacist conspiracy theory, and rails on diversity and multiculturalism. The content he shares is often Islamophobic, and he echoes the Proud Boy notion of a ‘Western Culture’ under siege by non-whites.

Alan Swinney on the right, showing off his “Proud Boy” tattoo.

Swinney posing with Proud Boy Ethan Nordean, who he traveled with to Rhode Island.

Unsurprisingly, like most members of the Proud Boys, Alan Swinney has a history of misogynistic violence. On October 31, 2012, he was arrested and charged with a Felony for strangling a family member or spouse. The case was eventually dismissed.

Alan Swinney uses his practice of strangling family members to choke an antifascist at a rally.

As antifascists, it is our duty to make it clear that racism and fascism is not welcomed in our town. If white supremacists think they can move into our town and go unnoticed, they have a lot to learn about the Pacific Northwest antifascist network. We will be monitoring you, and we will not let up pressure until you are chased out of our community. If Pay Pal funded fascists have taken up the hobby of traveling from state to state to attend fascist rallies, know that our network stretches nation-wide and you will be tracked. There is no where you can hide.

Chris Kilgore plans on attending Haley Adam’s misogynistic ‘HimToo’ rally in Portland on November 17th. We’ll be there to show him how antifascists #PushBackPDX. Join us!

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.

Please report any additional information you may have on other Patriot Front members, or on any racist or fascist activity to: WAnaziwatch@protonmail.com Twitter: @WAnaziwatch or to eugeneantifa@protonmail.com Twitter: @_eugeneantifa

 

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.

Gena Marie Stroud, with an ivy tattoo on her arm, wears a Hammer of Thor necklace

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 Stroud aka “Genevieve Romito” laments on the challenges of being an oppressed white, straight woman

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.

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.

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.

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.

Daniel P. Hoff, aka “Danny Wolf,” says he will ask his girlfriend, Giovanina J. McCollough about buses for Unite the Right 2.

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”.

“Goodest_Boy WA” and Jacob Landis Prior aka “Jake WA” prepare a banner for Patriot Front

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.

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.

Jacob Landis Prior offers his White supremacist perspective on Canada.

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.

Meet the Tac Town Tattoo neo-Nazis:

Left: Jason De Simas; Right: Ryan De Ann De Simas

Left: Brady Eltz; Right: Kenrick Baughman

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 parents and 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 in his front yard, out of garages, or at a public park.

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.

 

Andrew Allwander aka “Jim Baker” details plans to hit women, knock people in wheelchairs over, kick and punch protesters in the head, and hog tie antifascist activists.

 

Andrew Allwander’s brand “White Dragon Dojang”

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.”

 

Be aware while at River Road and Whiteaker area parks (especially on Saturdays) for Andrew Allwander as he often “trains” at these locations.
