It’s our pleasure to introduce Patriot Front’s Oklahoma Network Director, the pride of Broken Arrow: Clinton William Hudson! Clint goes by “William OK” PF-8191, Network 4 Director on the leaked Patriot Front RocketChat.

Clinton Hudson joined Patriot Front on September 30, 2018 but this isn’t Clint’s first dance with fascism. Clint is well known in Tulsa fascist circles and has collaborated with the likes of “Fashy Gainz” AKA Cody Allen Elkin, another Broken Arrow, Oklahoma mother’s shame.

Oklahoma antifascists used a photo from the Unicorn Riot leak to geolocate Clinton Hudson’s home in the Tulsa suburbs. We also have Patriot Front leader Thomas Rousseau’s leaked DM questioning the brazenness of painting a banner in his front yard. Here was also involved in vandalizing Murrell state park in Oklahoma and hacked traffic safety signs with fascist messages.

Alexi Michael Guthrie, 27, of Simi Valley, CA, is an avowed National Socialist and the de-facto “network director” for the Southern California division of American neo-nazi group Patriot Front. Guthrie, operating under the alias “Brandon CA“, has extensive ties to Patriot Front’s leadership and is responsible for recruiting and for planning & organizing events for what has been called “the most active white supremacist group in the nation.”

Alexi Guthrie, who describes himself as a National Socialist (Nazi), is a highly active white supremacist with ties to other extremist groups including Rob Rundo’s Will2Rise, Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance, and the antisemitic National Justice Party.

In this article, we reveal new details about Patriot Front and Alexi Guthrie gathered by an anti-fascist infiltrator who attended the group’s events. Guthrie’s extensive activity on behalf of Patiot Front is further proven by the leaked Patriot Front private chat logs published by Unicorn Riot in January 2022. In these private chats, Patriot Front members have admitted to numerous hate crimes across the United States.

Nicholas Wolfgang Kaufman, aka “Mark PA” in the leaked Patriot Front Rocket chat logs, is by all accounts a newer member of the group, having gained access to the fascist group’s chat in November 2021. From what we know about Nicholas he was a former Division 3 football player at Kings College in Maryland, having played the linebacker position and recorded a measly season high of 2 tackles. 

Kaufman works as a surgical assistant for the Lehigh Valley Health Network at their Muhlenberg Location. Kaufman has put up Patriot Front stickers in the area around LHVN’s offices in Allentown, PA, including the Citgo on West Street and the Butz Corporate Center on Hamilton Street.

Kaufman’s place of business (Lehigh Valley Health Network) can be reached at 610-402-8000. We encourage people to politely call and demand that LHVN fire Kaufman, who started working their in November, for practices that clearly contradict their standards.

Brian D. Harwood- “Henry MA” and Network Quartermaster of Patriot Front Network 7

To start off one of many articles exposing members of New England’s Patriot Front membership, let’s give a warm welcome to Brian D. Harwood (born 1997) of Brewster, Massachusetts, who goes by “Henry MA”. Harwood is a Network Quartermaster (NQ) of Patriot Front’s Network 7 (NW7), which encompasses Patriot Front membership from Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Patriot Front has been a fixture in the American extreme right movement since late 2017, when it was founded by Thomas Rousseau in the wake of the disastrous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. A breakoff from the now defunct neo-Nazi group Vanguard America, Patriot Front blended classic Americana nationalism with fascism and neo-Nazism, and in the subsequent years grew to be one of the more significant groups in the American extreme right scene. It is explicitly fascist and white supremacist, and is responsible for a nationwide campaign of white supremacist vandalism, propaganda distribution, and defacement of murals and pieces of public art memorializing victims of police violence, as well as community spaces/art pieces. Organizationally, Patriot Front is split into about a dozen or so regional networks and several clusters of membership, each with their own local leadership. Recently, thanks to the work of anti-fascist researchers, the media collective Unicorn Riot has made publicly available a massive trove of leaked data containing several months worth of chats, private messages, and internal documents, photos, and videos.

Harwood has likely been a member of Patriot Front since late 2019, but it is unclear exactly when he joined.​​​​​​​ Brian Harwood currently is a leader in Patriot Front nationally, but is more specifically a major leader in NW7. As NQ, Harwood is instrumental in coordinating NW7 with national Patriot Front leadership as well as with other prominent Patriot Front members across the nation. Specifically, Harwood has acted as a liaison between Patriot Front leadership and NW7’s dozen or so members.  He is by all indications a significant leadership figure in Patriot Front nationally. Harwood also played a part in Patriot Front’s miserable mid-December march in Washington D.C., leading a small team of shield bearers within the “Screen Right” shield section. Additionally, Harwood helped vet and interview several people who applied to Patriot Front, acting as a “notetaker” for several vetting interviews.

Brian Harwood, as a leadership figure in Patriot Front and NW7, has also participated in a huge number of acts of Patriot Front vandalism and “activism” such as putting up stickers, dropping banners, and putting up Patriot Front graffiti, all with the the aim of antagonizing communities and recruiting. Living in a small vacation town on Cape Cod, Harwood is somewhat disconnected geographically from other Network 7 members, but regularly makes long drives to engage in various Network 7 activities. In the past several months, Harwood has led and participated in numerous actions, such as Patriot Front banner drops in Dover, New Hampshire, Greenland, New Hampshire, Boston and Worcester, Massachusetts and more. Harwood also ran several hand-to-hand combat training sessions for NW7 members, at one of of which he gave a pretty lame lecture about Patriot Front’s manifesto.

Most significantly however, Harwood planned and participated in the vandalism of a Black Lives Matter mural painted on Champion Ice Cream Shop in Brockton, Massachusetts. The mural/buisness was vandalized on December 12, 2021, and according to leaked direct messages, Harwood and “Philip MA” extensivly discussed targeting and vandalizing the mural. As if that were not conclusive enough, Harwood even distributed a detailed document to Network 7 members detailing how they would scout the location and vandalize the mural.​​​​​​​ This comes from a long trend of Patriot Front members targeting murals, community spaces, and public displays that memorialize people murdered by police, promote values of racial or sexual liberation, or otherwise go against Patriot Front’s racist, neo-fascist worldview. This is one of Patriot Front’s most recent tactics used to terrorize and intimidate communities, as well as gain attention in mainstream media. Exposing acts like this and the people behind them are integral to defending communities against further attacks as well as to making sure members of Patriot Front and other neo-fascist groups know there will be consequences to openly trying to terrorize communities.
