On January 21, 2022, independent media outlet Unicorn Riot released 500GB of Patriot Front’s unaltered internal communications from the fascist group’s private chat server. This private chat is one of the main ways Patriot Front members coordinate and organize their activities. After joining the fascist organization, Patriot Front members choose a false name for themselves and include the state they live in and their title, if applicable. In Patriot Front’s private chat server, Nathaniel Leavitt is known as “Clarke MO @PF-256712.” Patriot Front also refers to areas where they have active members as networks. “Clarke MO” is a member of Network 13, abbreviated as NW13.

Nathaniel has a sticker collection which contains many hateful antisemitic and racist references, which is just a peek into the hateful personality that drove Nathaniel to join Patriot Front in the first place [10]. One of his stickers even depicts murderer Kyle Rittenhouse as a saint. Yikes.

Nathaniel was in attendance for Patriot Front’s March on December 4th at the National Mall in Washington DC. He coordinated being picked up by “Leo MO” [8] in Patriot Front’s internal communications server. After the march,  “Mark MO” aka Ian Fletcher sent Nathaniel a photo of two individuals in front of Patriot Front’s re-decorated “hate bus,” which was used to transport many members from Missouri to Washington DC [9]. Nathaniel is pictured in the photo, on the right.

On January 21, 2022, independent media outlet Unicorn Riot released 500GB of Patriot Front’s unaltered internal communications from the fascist group’s private chat server. This private chat is one of the main ways Patriot Front members coordinate and organize their activities. After joining the fascist organization, Patriot Front members choose a false name for themselves and include the state they live in and their title, if applicable. In Patriot Front’s private chat server, Ian Fletcher was known as Mark – MO (@PF-731400). Patriot Front also refers to areas where they have active members as networks. “Mark MO” is a member of Network 13, abbreviated as NW13.

Ian used Patriot Front stencils and spray paint to promote Neo-Nazi Patriot Front iconography in and around Kansas City, MO. There is an image of Ian Fletcher aka “Mark MO” with graffiti that he and several others (including Logan Plank aka “Clarke IL” and Nathaniel Leavitt aka “Clarke MO”) put up in Kansas City, MO. He also appears in several of the videos released by Unicorn Riot, where he can be seen putting up Patriot Front graffiti.

Mark MO was critical in helping Missouri members plan and show up for the Neo-Nazi march in Washington DC in December 2021 [9, 10] and acted as a medic for the march [11]. We were able to spot him wearing a white vest, which was standard for the medics during the December 4th march [14]. Ian also wore identical pieces of clothing while doing hate graffiti in Kansas City as when Patriot Front prepared for the DC March at their training camp.

Brandon Michael Danaher was born on September 27, 1989. We’ll explore his descent into white nationalism shortly. First, do note that once members are granted access to the Patriot Front internal communications server, they chose a false name for themselves. That name corresponds with the state they live and their title, if applicable. In Patriot Front servers, Brandon Michael Danaher was known as Patrick, from Missouri.

Patriot Front member “Patrick-MO (@PF-5788)”  traveled from Blue Springs, Missouri in the Kansas City, Missouri area, and attended the December 4, 2021 Patriot Front training camp and march in Washington DC [1], as proven by his conversation with Thomas Rousseau afterwards.

In Brandon’s preparation for the weekend-long event, he private messaged fellow fascist “Mark – MO” his home address for transportation support. “Patrick” tells us that he lives near Blue Springs, MO [2]. So much for OpSec!

Brandon and another hate group member Sean-KS [3] vandalized public spaces with white nationalist promotional materials on after Thanksgiving, in Brandon’s town. Their handiwork was posted on the hate group’s public social media after the failed DC training camp and march, in a feeble attempt to boost morale.

Prosecutors in St. Louis announced on March 8, 2022 that they charged Mitchell Frederick Wagner, 24, of Florissant, Missouri, with felony first-degree property damage in connection with the destruction of a mural created in 2020 by a collective of local artists which featured famous Black Americans, particularly figures of note to St. Louis. They said three other individuals were with Wagner the night of the alleged act of vandalism. After his arrest, antifascist researchers identified Kyle MO as Wagner.

Wagner was also one of the 31 Patriot Front members arrested in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, on June 11, 2022. The group planned to intimidate the local Pride event taking place that day.

Luke Paule AKA “Carter MO” of Pacific, MO

Luke Paule was identified as Patriot Front’s Network Director for southern Illinois and eastern Missouri (“Network XII”) by Unicorn Riot, when the media group revealed leaks of Patriot Front’s internal chat server in January 2022. Patriot Front members must choose pseudonyms when they join the fascist group, and Luke Paule’s alias was revealed as “Carter MO.” Here are the messages he wrote as “Carter MO.”

Luke Paule, as a Network Director, planned fascist activism to further Patriot Front’s fascist agenda, which included targeting FBI “report hate crimes” billboards. He also directed other Patriot Front members in his network in fascist activities, such as Brandon Michael Danaher (“Patrick MO”) of Blue Spring, Missouri, who was recently exposed by Chicago Anti-Fascist Action.

As noted by Unicorn Riot, Patriot Front Network Director ‘Carter MO‘ (Luke Paule) and other Patriot Front Network Directors discussed coordinating actions targeting FBI “report hate crimes” billboards in their respective areas.
