Patriot Front is a neo-fascist organization that splintered from the neo-Nazi organization, Vanguard America, in the chaotic aftermath of Unite the Right in 2017. Its members are white supremacists who have advocated for rape gangs. Patriot Front members have been involved in dozens of hate crimes in the United States and is one of the most active neo-Nazi organizations operating in the United States today. It’s current leader is Thomas Rousseau, who runs the entire operation out of his house in Haslet, Texas, a city located in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
In January 2022, Unicorn Riot published a trove of leaked messages and images from Patriot Front’s RocketChat private communications and other sources. As reported by Unicorn Riot, “The exposed communications show coordination with their leader Thomas Rousseau to deface murals and monuments to Black lives across the United States, and intimate struggles to bolster morale through group activities like hiking and camping.”
“The release includes more than 400 gigabytes of data published by Unicorn Riot. Ostensibly private, unedited videos and direct messages reveal a campaign to organize acts of racial hatred while indoctrinating teenagers into national socialism (Nazism). The information stands as a chilling reminder that fascist organizing thrives in secrecy and obscurity.”
