There is an organization of alleged patriots that keeps attracting negative attention and appears to be doing everything wrong. Of course, this diminishes the reputation of those of us on the right side of the aisle.
What I’m referring to is what happened over the weekend when a U-Haul vehicle carrying 20-30 men was intercepted by police. They were on their way to the LGBTQ Pride Festival to do likely disrupt the event.
In all honesty, the main objective may have just been to get caught in the act to harm the reputation of conservatives. Let me elaborate on this a little bit.
The Patriot Front, from what many believe, is actually a fake conservative group that is sponsored by the government. The first time that we saw this group was in Washington, D.C. in the fall of last year. It has actually been shown in reports that the Patriot Front has ties with the government.
Also, this group is also an offshoot of a ne0-Nazi group. According to Gizmodo,
A hostile offshoot of the defunct neo-Nazi group Vanguard America, Patriot Front formed in late August 2017 less than three weeks after the white nationalist “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. (James Alex Fields Jr., who was convicted in December 2018 of killing 32-year-old anti-racist protester Heather Heyer at the rally, was seen there holding a shield emblazoned with the VA logo. VA later denied he was a member.) The split from VA followed months of infighting between Thomas Rousseau, the Front’s founder, and VA leader Dillon Irizarry, who was seen accusing Rousseau in leaked chat logs of staging a “literal coup” in June 2017, according to the ADL.
The leak, some 400 gigabytes of data published first on Friday by Unicorn Riot—a nonprofit media outlet that covers far-right, white supremacist, and neo-Nazi organizations, among other topics—offers an unprecedented look at the rewards and reckonings of Rousseau’s master plan. The many thousands of pages of internal conversations, which originated on internal Rocket.Chat boards for prospective recruits and members, depict a group highly focused on the recruitment of ardent nationalists and segregationists, and of Hitler-worshiping fascists who’ve grown tired of concealing fantasies of enacting his Final Solution.
The internal communications further reveal an organization that, despite having been publicly accused repeatedly in the commission of crimes across the country—namely, the defacement and destruction of public works of art that confront and illuminate racial and social inequality—has simply continued unabated, routinely planning and executing what are essentially hate crimes, in spirit if not under the law, while facing virtually no personal or legal consequences.
Truly, I suggest you take some time to look up the Patriot Front group. You’ll see that not everything is as it appears.
