Colton Michael Brown is a Network Director in the neo-Nazi, fascist group Patriot Front. He operates under the name “John WA” and lives in Ravensdale, WA.

As a Network Director, the highest leadership role you can obtain under national leader Thomas Rousseau, Brown enforces and contributes to Patriot Front’s white supremacist culture and hatred. Brown’s area of responsibility includes the officially-designated “Network 8” (often stylized “NW8” or “Network VIII”1) in western Washington state, plus the less-developed “clusters” in Oregon and Eastern Washington/Idaho.

Brown has organized several hate crimes in the Pacific Northwest, with the approval and frequent supervision of Rousseau. Brown targeted a mural of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor in Portland in July 2021, and participated in the vandalism of the “Respect and Love Olympia” mural in October 2021, among others.
