Last weekend, neo-Nazi group Patriot Front held a flash unannounced rally in DC on nearly empty streets for several minutes. The group also put up flyers and stickers which were quickly taken down and destroyed.
On the 7th of December, members of the neo-Nazi “Patriot Front” posted several stickers on the backs of street signs in DC, then published deceptive close-up photos on Gab.ai making them look much larger. The next day Patriot Front held an unannounced march in DC. That night, DC activist Luke Kuhn followed the Gab posts to the offensive stickers, ripped them down, and burned the one that came down in large enough pieces.
Over 20 members of Patriot Front marched on nearly empty streets of DC on Saturday, December 1st. They just got done photo-shopping the photos today it seems. Only fitting that they would march, secretly, on the White House, home to a president most see as illegitimate. pic.twitter.com/S55QkztWhv

The worst of the Patriot Front trash shows the outline of the portion of Turtle Island claimed by the so-called “United States” and claims “not stolen conquered.” If the member of Patriot Front who marched in DC during the day had stayed for the evening only to have their cars or their wallets “conquered” by local residents, they might choose to accept that conquest and theft are the exact same thing.
We've also mapped how Atomwaffen grew, influenced, and split from other groups like American Vanguard, Vanguard America, and now, Patriot Front. https://t.co/72WALOO1aK

Patriot Front is an offshoot of American Vanguard, which splintered after one of their members (James Fields) drove his car into counter-protesters against the Aug 12 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, VA. James Fields was been convicted of first degree murder for the death of Heather Heyer, and of 8 lesser charges for seriously injuring other counter-protesters. Some of his fellow Vanguard America members are still on the streets, so as fast as they post their racist trash on thin, gummy paper, others will clean it up.
