Many of y’all probably heard the recent news that queer friendly businesses on Broadway in downtown Denver have been targeted by the white supremacist hate group Patriot Front.
The assailant was arrested later that week when he tried to hit Denver for a third time, this time getting chased off while trying to spray paint the window of BookBar while it hosted at Drag Queen Story Hour event at the end of Pride Month.
These same Patriot Front stickers first showed up in the area around April and were taken down an anti-fascist who was stabbed five times in the near-fatal incident. The attacker, Santi Martinez (who is not believed to be a member of Patriot Front), was not charged with any crimes.
It is very likely that Samuel Cordova is the Patriot Front member who put up the stickers that nearly killed C, the wounded anti-fascist.
Samuel Cordova is a 20 year old man who lives with his parents in Lakewood, Colorado while attending MSU. Samuel is a wannabe streetwear designer with ties to the hip-hop scene in Denver.
Identifying Samuel was easy, we just took a look at his arrest record and then found his public Facebook page thanks to his piss poor OpSec.
Samuel posted a nearly nude photo of a woman’s butt on his alt twitter handle @NeuromancerSc, saying that she is unaware that it is being shared. “Revenge porn” under CRS 18-7-107 is defined as “posting or distributing intimate photos of people without their consent with the intention of harassing or upsetting them.” and is a class 1 misdemeanor in the state of Colorado. We have an archive of this tweet if the affected party wishes to take legal action.
Samuel Cordova is also a gun owner. This is a troublesome revelation, as Patriot Front is most notably remembered for it’s involvement in the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, which occurred when the group was still organizing under the name Vanguard America.
Samuel Cordova is also a lifestyle Anarchist; he likes the aesthetics of Anarchism but isn’t down with the politics. Cute.
Patriot Front is an unapologetically white fascist organization that was created by a rift in Vanguard America, the fascist group that murdered Heather Hayer in Charlottesville. Samuel Cordova is a danger to our community. He has already gotten one person stabbed, covered Denver in fascist propaganda, attempted a hate crime against a Pride event, distributed revenge porn, and he carries a firearm.
We have received tips from people who know Samuel that he attends MSU and works at UPS. If you have any additional information about him or are a lawyer representing the woman in his revenge porn posting, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
When we said “we will find you“, we weren’t lying. We’re better at this than you.
Jeremy Jeffery Riesberg is the head of the Colorado chapter of the hate group American Identity Movement (AmIM, formerly known as Identity Evropa). Under the aliases “Felden”, “Jackson”, and “Andrew Jackson”, Jeremy advocates for national socialism, illegally posts white supremacist propaganda, and coordinates a network of racists in from his home in Colorado Springs. Ironically, Jeremy is married to a black woman who gave birth to their interracial child.
Felden aka Jackson
Jeremy is the reason one of our core researchers began investigating the local alt-right. Jeremy used to threaten people, particularly women and minorities, on his now-banned twitter handles @Feldenk1 and @Felden89 back in 2017. We thank you for drawing their ire, as we wouldn’t have have outed manyofyourchums without this comrade.
Jeremy appears to have rose up to the occasion after we outted CO AmIM’s former leader, Master Sergeant Cory Reeves who is now being investigated by the U.S. Air Force and could be facing court-martial.
Jeremy is a U.S. Army Veteran.
White Power Miscegenation
One of the more relatable things the Nazis do is support each other in major life milestones, like when they have babies. They even organize baby registries. It is very thoughtful.
Guess whose pretty face we found on a certain “Amy’s” Facebook page?
That’s right, one of the prominent leaders of the white nationalist American Identity Movement is participating in white genocide by marrying and birthing children with a woman of color. Really jiggles your genotype don’t it?
Amy and Jeremy both enjoy rock climbing. Jeremy’s profile on Mountain Project shows an extensive history of climbs in and around Colorado, some of which were corroborated by Amy’s TripAdvisor profile
Whether Amy is aware of her husband’s white supremacy is unknown, but the fact that she is in the extreme minority of black women who vote republican does raise some concerns.
Social Democrat to National Socialist
Jeremy’s journey to being the neo-Nazi leader of the most active white supremacist group in Colorado is an interesting one. Much like many of our comrades on the left, Jeremy started out as a Bernie bro, but he somehow ended up becoming a literal neo-Nazi in two short years.
Jeremy didn’t just read Kevin MacDonald, he swallowed his anti-Semitic pseudo-science until he became a self-identified National Socialist.
Jeremy also likes to peddle far-right memes, like fashtag, to highlight the perceived problem of liberals and the left calling anyone to the right of them Nazis. On it’s surface, this is rich coming from a literal Nazi, but upon further consideration, this illuminates the likely truth that the “overzealous-left” rhetoric is largely created by fascists to recruit usefully ignorant reactionaries to do the heavy lifting of gaslighting anti-fascists and social justice advocates.
Jeremy also spends a lot of time retweeting a liking fan art from the new Pokemon game. As much as Patrick Casey likes to insist that his membership is “normal and well adjusted”, they always end up being into some weird shit.
Jeremy is responsible for a number of illegal flyerings around Colorado:
Jeremy Riesberg is the second leader of Colorado Identity Evropa/AmIM that we’ve exposed. Whichever of you chucklefucks steps up to the plate, know that you’re next. No matter how good your OpSec is, every time an employer or family member googles you, “White Supremacist” will come up. Quit while you’re ahead, we’re better than you at this.
-Colorado Springs Anti-Fascists xoxo

Ricky frequently posted about his airsoft guns and birdwatching on his Reddit account /u/alpha2224.
Digging through Facebook, we were able to find a “Richard” with photos of himself holding a King Arms P90 and a VegaForce Company SCAR-L, along with dozens of photos of birds taken at the Desert National Wildlife Refuge in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Riley Grisar, the disgraced leader of TPUSA’s University of Nevada, Las Vegas Chapter, is also a member of the white supremacist organization American Identity Movement (AmIM, formerly known as Identity Evropa). Leaks from AmIM’s chat server have confirmed Grisar’s involvement in the hate group.
In viral video, leader of #LasVegas chapter of Turning Point USA seen giving Alt-Right "OK" sign while friend screams, "We're gonna run the world! White Power! Fuck N*****s!" Was seen giving same hand sign at recent "Build the Wall" rally. CW: Racial Slurs https://t.co/f0IwuCWAsRpic.twitter.com/qcQIFTzk8i
The sole visible comment on the video is by an account called “Bashar Al Assad”, the name of the Syrian dictator adored by the alt-right.
The username and location associated with Riley’s YouTube persona matches up with a screenshot published by Unicorn Riot from inside AmIM’s Mattermost Chat Server.
Turning Point USA had been defending Grisar’s use of the white power “okay” sign and his chapter’s “Build The Wall” demonstration in their newspaper up until his racist words went viral. Grisar’s “Build The Wall” demonstration at UNLV was almost identical to actions put on by AmIM.
This past March, white supremacist propagandist and AmIM ally Nicholas Fuentes was invited to speak by Iowa State University’s TPUSA chapter where he lectured students about the “economic destiny” of different races, claiming that “the economic destiny of African-Americans in the country is no different than Africans anywhere else in the world; it is poverty!” In December 2018, then-Communications Director for TPUSA Candace Owens infamously faulted Adolf Hitler not for fascist ethnic cleansing, but for having the audacity to do fascist ethnic cleansing outside of his own country: “[I]f Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine. The problem is that he wanted — he had dreams outside of Germany.” These are just a few of examples of racism and bigotry within TPUSA, Media Matters has a comprehensive and up-to-date catalog here.
Riley Grisar’s dual carding in a full-on white fascist organization like AmIM, and a MAGA conservative group like TPUSA comes as no surprise as leaked Identity Evropa communications show concerted attempts to take power in Turning Point chapters. TPUSA’s right-wing anti-immigrant, anti-queer, and Islamophobic platform make it nearly impossible to inoculate themselves from fascists as they agree on far more than they disagree. As long as TPUSA remains a force of the American right, fascists will be there.
Yesterday we released info about CSU Admissions worker Rob Adams, one of the moderator’s of David Huntwork‘s MAGA Trump – Colorado Facebook group. We released our article on Rob following the receipt of a ridiculous attempt at strong-arming from members of this “patriot group,” who threatened to visit an activist who has nothing to do with our collective at his home.
“Oh, you guys just call everyone a Nazi! You just call all the people you don’t like Nazis!”
We get that a lot. Despite what people may think, we try to be careful with who we deem a “Nazi.”
This is Jovanni Valle, more commonly known as “Jovi Val.” You may remember him from an altercation he had with a Jared Polis staffer (who rules, btw) last year. Or you may recognize him as the douchebag who got egged in New York on May Day.
Interestingly enough, David “The Sage” Huntwork added Jovi Val to his “Patriot Brigade – Colorado” Facebook Group in October 2018, months afterVal appeared with human shit-stain Jason Kessler at the abysmal “Unite the Right 2.0” in Washington D.C.
This is not a good look, Curtis. Jovi Val’s rampant homophobia and penchant for Nazi memorabilia was probably seen as a feature, not a bug, by Huntwork, who had no qualms adding Val to his groups months after he appeared alongside Jason Kessler in a reboot of an event that ended in murder and bloodshed. DeGroote had no qualms defending Val and trying to get him appearances on podcasts. Keep trying to tell people your groups are all about the second amendment, Dave.
Louis Huey, like the crowd of boomer-conservatives he panders to, is not one to let an opportunity to play the victim pass him by. He has been telling his online friends some WILD stories about us.
Look, we wrote an article about Huey’s involvement in far-right politics here in Colorado. While he may take exception to our tone, or the fact that it is this page’s stated position that his actions are pretty shitty, everything we published was accurate. And no, no one associated with this page has done anything to Huey’s precious “personal property.” We didn’t even put up flyers. Huey can’t handle Antifa Supersoldiers on their lowest intensity setting.
Huey isn’t the only one soiling his dedicates over our expose. We received this email a few days ago:
The redacted section is the personal information of local activist who is in no way, shape, or form connected to us. The alt-right isn’t nearly as invested in the accuracy of their information as we are. Sad!
It appears we struck a chord with our mention of the admins of his group. “Ms. Ollivier, Ms. Ogden, Ms. Ingram, Mr. Adams, Mr. Huntwork, and Mr. Degroote” are behind some pretty heinous content in Huntwork’s facebook groups.
Rob’s antics aren’t limited to hate-filled facebook groups.
As much as these folks want to pretend they are “very fine people,” their activities show them to be small-minded, hateful assholes who want to talk hard online and bully children at Drag Queen Story Hour.
With all the excitement over the Identity Evropa discord leaks and the ensuing Identify Evropa profiles, things have been busy. Today we’ve got a profile that is long overdue.
Louie Huey is the host of the livestream podcast Major League Liberty. The pages bills itself as libertarian, but is largely a mouthpiece for Trump supporters. Case in point: Roger Stone was a recent guest. Louie is very active in the Denver area, covering rallies and events of interest to the “blue lives matter” crowd. Louie is also not above “hitting the streets” for some ridiculous “gotcha”-style journalism, and has become a well-known nuisance for Denver-area activists.
Not only does Huey cover local fascist gatherings, but he also traveled to Portland, OR last summer with Proud Boy Zach Lightner to take part in the street violence inspired by Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson.
Interestingly enough, Huntwork lists his employment as “National Security Background Investigations Contractor.” If this is the guy who is doing background checks for security clearances, it certainly explains some things!
Huntwork’s group worked to generate a giant media storm in advance of a Windsor, CO event for “Drag Queen Story Hour”
Louie Huey runs with a pretty fascist crowd, and is a part of the propaganda machine that promotes hate against immigrants and trans people. He’s connected to Proud Boys, militia groups, and is more than friendly with local law enforcement.
UPDATE: Louis Huey’s girlfriend dumped his ass ;(
UPDATE 2: Huey thinks that Hardcore and Punk was at some point in time, not political.
The band’s biography literally describes them as a political band:
This just underscores what the right actually means when they complain about how “everything is political now”. Something being “political” means having or reflecting politics they don’t agree with.
