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”
