William Alfred Ring AKA “Tyler MD” (Currently in PA)

William Alfred Ring was identified as “Tyler MD” from messages and photos contained in the January 2022 Unicorn Riot leak of the Patriot Front chat server. In 2016, when he was 18 years old, William Ring was living in Portland, Oregon and voting for Donald Trump in the presidential election. Five years later, in 2021, he was on the east coast and active in the fascist Patriot Front organization. He appears to live in various towns around the Pittsburgh, PA area.

Within Patriot Front, William Ring acted as an “aid” to Grant MD (AKA Daniel Turetchi) and was very involved in the organizing of the December 2021 Patriot Front march on the US Capitol. He scouted locations, acted as security for the Patriot Front camp where they mustered ahead of the march, and was on one of the little plastic shield teams for the actual march. William Ring was involved in vetting prospective Patriot Front members, and also was responsible for putting up of Patriot Front propaganda in the DC area and Pennsylvania.

In June 2022, local Pennsylvania news reported that William Ring was arrested on hate crime charges for striking a teenage girl of Hispanic descent in the face in and yelling racial and ethnic slurs at her. In August 2022 he appeared in court on those charges and was filmed by local media leaving court with a Nazi pal who shouted “28” at the cameraperson. “28” is the numeric code for “BH” or “Blood and Honour,” an infamous neo-Nazi bonehead gang. One month later, in September 2022, William Ring was arrested again, this time for hitting some guy with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire and punching two women in a fight over a refrigerator his roommate was getting rid of.

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.

We have identified this individual as Zachary Ross Stern of Bushkill, Pennsylvania who used the alias “Ryan-PA” in the Unicorn Riot leaks of the neo-Nazi organization, Patriot Front’s, chat server. Stern’s story, however, has an strange twist.

Zachary Stern came to our attention when he was mentioned in an article about Patriot Front in the Huffington Post, “Inside Patriot Front: The Masked White Supremacists On A Nationwide Hate Crime Spree.” Chris Mathias and Ali Winston wrote:

Videos showing Patriot Front’s retreat included footage of a rental number on the side of one of the trucks. HuffPost has obtained a copy of that truck’s corresponding rental agreement on July 3. It shows that it was rented by a man named Zachary Stern, who listed an address in Bushkill, Pennsylvania, about a two-hour drive north in the Poconos, as his residence. Public records show Zachary Stern owning a house at that same address.

Looking into Stern’s background, we found some interesting parallels with a Patriot Front member who used the code-name “Ryan-PA,” and whose member number is “PF-2575.” Zachary Stern is a tattoo enthusiast and his arms are extensively covered with tattoos. However, Zachary Stern also has a distinctive tattoo on the third finger of his left hand. A detailed examination of the imagery of the individual suspected to be Stern also reveal that this individual has an identical tattoo in an identical location.

Zachary Ross Stern of Bushkill, Pennsylvania has a lengthy involvement in white nationalist circles, but what is disturbing is that this is despite having a Jewish background. Zach Stern registered a music distribution company called Vanguard Productions out of his parent’s Piscataway, New Jersey home. This company catered to Nazis and White Nationalists. He quickly earned himself a “Hate Group” designation from the SPLC. Vanguard Productions distributed Nazi music, books, & merch: Self describing thusly: “VANGUARD PRODUCTIONS is not a commercial label and thus remains unapologetic for the right wing/fascist views expressed on many of its releases. Herd/weak mentalities will find no welcome here”
