We have identified Nathan David Brenner (26) of Louisville, Colorado as the “Network Director” of the Colorado & southern Wyoming chapter of the neo-Nazi organization Patriot Front. Nathan Brenner used the alias “Ben CO” within the racist organization. Nathan Brenner was arrested trying to disrupt a Coeur d’Alene, Idaho Pride event and has engaged in regular Patriot Front organizing, including vandalizing a mural in Denver, Colorado with racist graffiti.
UPDATE: In December 2022, Nathan Brenner was confirmed to be physically seeking employment under the alias David Brenner in the Des Moines, IA metro area and is no longer believed to be living in Colorado.
Patriot Front members also regularly vandalize left-wing and progressive artworks. Leaked internal Patriot Front video, published by Unicorn Riot, shows Nathan Brenner and two other Patriot Front members vandalizing a pro-bodily autonomy mural at Crema Coffee House in Denver.
Nathan Brenner was one of 31 Patriot Front members arrested on Conspiracy to Riot charges at the Coeur d’Alene, Idaho Pride event on June 11th, 2022.

Steven Derrick Tucker, 30, was arrested on June 11th in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho with fellow members of the fascist group, Patriot Front, as they attempted to crash a Pride event there. Court records in Dallas County, Texas show that at the time of his arrest in Idaho, Tucker was out on bail awaiting trial on a charge of 2nd Degree felony assault with a deadly weapon. This charge stems from his arrest on August 14, 2021 after a fight he had with his male roommates at a house in Mesquite, TX. He threatened to kill one of them with a knife after they argued about washing dishes, prompting the other roommate to intervene. Court records in the aggravated assault case further reveal that one of the roommates (the complainant in the case) had a dating relationship with Tucker and that Tucker “was a member of the complainant’s family and household.” He was released on $25,000 bond on August 22, 2021.
Patriot Front members choose pseudonyms when they join the fascist group. Steven Derrick Tucker chose “Don TX” and used this pseudonym in Patriot Front’s private chat server. This chat server was subsequently leaked to the media group, Unicorn Riot, and the contents were published in January 2022. Posting as “Don TX” in the Patriot Front chats, he made reference to his legal situation, notably the fact that he wanted to keep Patriot Front out of it. (Is it any wonder?)
In a flurry of legal activity after Tucker’s arrest in Idaho as a member of Patriot Front, his bond was revoked for several weeks until he was eventually released with additional bond conditions including a requirement that he wear a ankle monitor. Tucker has also retained the legal services of Jason Lee Van Dyke, a longtime white nationalist and former lawyer for the Proud Boys, as his legal counsel in the Texas case.
Steven Derrick Tucker has traveled with Patriot Front to participate in their fascist flash mob actions on several occasions. In February 2021, Tucker was involved in a deadly car crash with several other Patriot Front members at the end of one of these actions in Utah. One member from New Jersey was killed and Thomas Rousseau, Patriot Front’s leader, was injured and hospitalized.

We can now confirm that Patriot Front member, Jared Michael Boyce (27), goes by “Logan UT” in the Patriot Front chats leaked by Unicorn Riot. In addition to that pseudonym, we know that Jared also uses “Brohumrie Matey” (or a similar variation) on Telegram, where he posts “anonymous” pictures of himself as well as a wide variety of Nazi propaganda. We matched these pseudonyms together because Jared posted the same photo of himself in the Patriot Front chats and on his Telegram. The picture shows him standing on stolen Pride/Mexico flags as a gesture of disrespect.
Jared was arrested on June 11th with 30 other members of Patriot Front in Couer d’Alene, Idaho, as they were on their way to intimidate a local Pride event. After his high profile arrest, Jared’s mother spoke with The Daily Beast to say that she kicked Jared out of her home in the hopes that her son will finally cut ties with the extremist faction. (He did not.)
Richard Jessop of Idaho Falls, Idaho, was arrested on June 11th, 2022, with 30 other members of Patriot Front in Couer d’Alene, Idaho, as they were on their way to intimidate a local Pride event. He was recognized as “Oscar ID” on the Patriot Front member’s gallery. Patriot Front members choose pseudonyms when they join the fascist group and in January 2022, Patriot Front’s private chat server was leaked by Unicorn Riot. Here are Richard Jessop’s messages that he wrote as “Oscar ID.”
