Based on a tip from Central Oregon Antifascist (COA), anti-racists in Michigan have unmasked two Patriot Front members.  These two PF members are brothers and they both reside in the Traverse City area.

COA sent this link that tied PF member “Johnny MI” (an alias) to Jon-Paul Struys, someone that was arrested at 2017’s Unite the Right (UtR) in Charlottesville. From there, and from the tip, Michigan anti-racists filled in the rest.  Because of the leaks hosted by Unicorn Ninja, anti-racists in Michigan were able to social map the Michigan Cluster of Patriot Front. This mapping allowed the anti-racists to confirm the provided identity and then the additional link to the brother.

Jon-Paul Struys in the leaked chats identified himself as being experienced in security work. This was confirmed by his LinkedIn account. Information on Joseph is a bit more scarce.
