On October 15, 2017, Joey Gibson and his Patriot Prayer group had yet another rally, this time in Salem, Oregon at the State Capitol. It was the typical ego stroking type rally we have come to see with Joey Gibson, speeches, and some anti-ANTIFA rhetoric, including an anti-ANTIFA song, and a few Nazis with flags. Gibson has never been able to find the courage, or the will, to remove the Nazis from his rallies. Instead, he pushes his fighting forces to attack antifascists who are ready to confront the Nazis. Gibson allows the Nazis in and protects them after some “wink-wink nod-nod words” about how he “doesn’t support them.”
For instance on June 4, 2017, just days after the MAX attack that left two dead, Gibson hosted Tim Gionet aka “Baked Alaska,” as a speaker at his “free speech” rally.
Prior to the rally, local antifascists publicly exposed “Baked Alaska”, showing proof that he was a Nazi. Joey Gibson feigned ignorance and called the accusations ANTIFA lies. A few months later on Tuesday September 12, 2017, Gibson went on an Oregon Public Broadcasting talk show where he admitted that Baked Alaska was a Nazi and a terrible person. NO SHIT JOEY!
At the Salem rally on October 15th there was no shortage of neo-Nazis in attendance, though there was a shortage of overall attendees (Ed: You can almost hear them shouting ‘There are tens of us! Tens!!!’).
Participating in this rally were two known Nazis that we’d like to direct your attention to: Mike Gainer and Jarl Rockhill….
Mike Gainer (a pseudonym no doubt) is a regular at Joey Gibson’s events, as was earlier reported on by our friends at Rose City Antifa.
Gainer has been seen at rallies in the past wearing a RWSS helmet (an 8-chan derived “Right Wing Safety Squad” meme that attempts Hitler’s Schutzstaffel (SS) paramilitary death squads), attacking antifascists and sieg heiling the crowd.
Jarl Judson Rockhill of West Linn, Oregon (DOB: 3-23-1987)–who has been reported on by Rose City Antifa, Eugene Antifa, and the PNW AWC previouslyi–is a self-described White Nationalist who has also been seen sieg heiling and yelling “white power!” at past rallies (then running away). Jarl Rockhill was charged with Sexual Abuse in the First Degree in 2002, and with Using a Child in a Display of Sexually Explicit conduct in 2003. He is registered as a sex offender as of 1-7-10.
Now It seems that Joey Gibson and his Patriot Prayer group–who is not at all concerned with running white supremacists out of their rallies–also does not seem to have an issue with known pedophiles’ presence.
Local Salem area antifascists confronted Jarl Rockhill at the Sunday event, and Rockhill proceeded to lie about his name while being interviewed, claiming that his name was “John.” After being told by local area antifascists that Rockhill is both a Nazi and a sex offender, Tusitala “Tiny” Toese from Patriot Prayer felt compelled to shake Rockhill’s hand…several times…after multiple warnings. Apparently, it doesn’t matter how horrific a person is to Patriot Prayer so long as they are anti-ANTIFA and they wave the flag of fair-weather fascism.
In addition to Rockhill’s Sex offender status, his white supremacy was not being hidden at the rally in Salem: This “Ginfaxi” tattoo in the form of a swastika was in plain view as well, and pointed out by antifascists to both Toese and Gibson.
Jarl also has a tattoo of a ‘Sonnenrad’, commonly referred to as a “black sun”, on his right forearm. This is another symbol white supremacists have begun to use more frequently. Yet Patriot Prayer leadership still felt compelled to go out of their way to make Rockhill feel welcome.
Jarl Rockhill can also be found on Twitter as “Scott Ryder”, under the Twitter handle @kitamisensei.
At first, he seems quite innocent, professing to be a local “Brony” (My Little Pony fan)…which is totally OK Jarl, no judgement!! MLP is actually pretty rad these days.
However, when you look deeper into the Twitter account, you begin to find Sandy Hook conspiracy tweets and tweets saying that undocumented workers should be put into work camps (see “death camps”)–like any Nazi would say.
Below, Rockhill can be seen wearing a “SIEGE” hat, which is the title of a book advocating white supremacist violence written by James Mason, an American National Socialist. The “Siege” hat, and the book itself serve as dog whistles to white supremacists.
This indicates that Rockhill may be associated with the neo-Nazi “Atomwaffen Division”, or he at least has an affinity for the group. Despite being a sex-offender, and already convicted once of being a felon in possession of a firearm, Rockhill continues to show his affinity for firearms by donning a gun on the front of his Nazi hat.
At past rallies, Rockhill has shown up in full armor and joined in attacks against antifascists. Below is a picture taken at a previous rally where Rockhill appears to be holding what looks like a gun in plain view at the Portland’s Waterfront Park.
Given Rockhill’s background as a sex offender, a Nazi, and a conspiracy theorist who appears to bring guns to rallies, we wonder if he’ll be the next person from Joey Gibson’s rallies to go on a murder spree?
We should consider Jarl Judson Rockhill to be armed, dangerous, and very unstable.
NOTE: Jarl Rockhill and “Mike Gainer” had other associates with them on Sunday, 10/15/2017 at Salem. Please email us with any information you may have on these Nazis.
What to say about Stacy that isn’t mentioned in the title?
While the interest in Mortuary Science gives her that oh-so-Portland off-kilter charm [We should note: Mortuary Science is indeed an honorable profession], that’s not really what sets Stacy apart….
No, what makes Stacy different is that she is an unapologetic member of the National Socialist Movement! A group which SPLC’s reports is one the largest Neo-Nazi organization in the country.
Furthermore, Stacy is not content to be just another rank-and-file Nazi goon (although the pictures show her doing that with her lady pals too). No, Stacy is also a youth recruiter for the NSM–and has been since at least 2013.
Now, you might want to challenge us and say: “Sure guys, but aren’t they just a bunch of harmless cranks that hang out in the backwoods burning Nordic totems and getting hammered?”
First: NO. But thank you for thinking critically and questioning what you read!
Second: HELL NO! The NSM counts among its ranks some of the most hardened and actively violent racist psychopaths this side of the original Nazis. Just keep reading…
Let’s review the characters in the photo above:
First, there is failed Nazi town founder Craig Cobb: For those of you who have been hiding under a rock, Craig is probably most notable for trying to take over the city of Leith, North Dakota between 2012-2014, in order to turn the small town into a white homeland. If this is all news to you, we highly recommend that you check out the Frontline documentary Welcome to Leith, which is available on Netflix.
But that’s not Stacy’s only dangerous Nazi pal. Let’s discuss Jimmy Marr: He’s a Eugene, OR based Nazi troll who gleefully takes wayward youth under his wing to groom them for acts of racist violence. He also plays bagpipes for some reason…probably because he’s a sadist.
Jimmy Marr has been a presence in the Nazi world since at least Ruby Ridge in 1993, and is a bit of an old-school frothing anti-semite. He loves to mould young minds and inspire them to violence while keeping his own hands clean. Jimmy has been able avoid any direct complicity in the eyes of the law in sundry atrocious acts, and yet there he is standing next to Craig Cobb and Stacy Hoffman.
To Stacy’s left, holding the flag, is Kynan Dutton. You might also recognize him as Cobb’s toady/sidekick from Welcome To Leith. Though Kynan’s hands aren’t as bloody as Craig Cobb’s, don’t let that fool you; he was jailed on terrorizing charges for his role in…well…terrorizing the population of Leith because he was the one willing to do Craig Cobb’s dirty work. He is currently known to reside in Pendleton, Oregon, and works as the NSM’s designated recruiter for the entire state.
Finally we come back to none other than Stacy herself, holding up the Nationalist Socialist Movement’s flag, and proudly beaming at the camera.
Stacy is currently afflicting Portland’s East Side with her presence. She is known to attend the SE 82nd Ave branch of Portland Community College. She has also been observed flyering for the NSM, and going on runs to tear down stickers and posters explicitly decrying racism and bigotry.
Given that she is the Youth Recruiter for a group which explicitly stated that it has no qualms about grooming children for hate and violence, she should be considered a toxic presence within our community, and should be made to feel unwelcome. If you see her, please take photos, videos, address info–or document any information related to her whereabouts, and send them to:
American Front (AF) is one of the longest, continually running, white supremacist groups in the United States.AF came to be in 1984, and was founded by Bob Heick. During the early years, Bob Heick worked with Tom Metzger, the leader of White Aryan Resistance (WAR).Metzger was later sued in a groundbreaking law suit for his involvement with East Side White Pride (ESWP) leading up to the brutal murder of Mulugeta Seraw in Portland, Oregon.
In 1990, Bob Heick relocated to Portland, Oregon, and began recruiting for American Front. American Front became one of the larger white power groups in Portland, and their membership at one time included Randy Krager, who later went on to form the white power group Volksfront. Bob Heick reportedly left the group in 1995, and it has had unstable membership since then.
Notable known members from the area, from the 90’s are Randy Krager of Portland, now relocated elsewhere, and Steve Shallenberger of Eugene.Shallenberger is now very active in the far-right patriot movement and has been regularly seen attending Joey Gibson’s (Patriot Prayer) far right rallies. Steve Shallenberger, who was known to be very active in passing out AF literature in the 90’s, almost lost his ear when he challenged a member of the Anti-Racist Action (ARA) to a one-on-one fight during a confrontation.Steve obviously lost the fight, but amazingly (barely) kept his ear.
Ask him about it next time you see him at a rally, it’s a great story we’d love to keep reminding him about!
Steve Shallenberger Tries to Go Legit
After moving from Portland to Eugene, Steve Shallenberger somehow managed to blend into the community. He infiltrated The Boreal, a grassroots all-ages punk rock and antifascist venue where he became the “Community Outreach Coordinator.” He also currently serves as the president and vice president of the Oregon Herpetological Society. Shallenberger lives in the West Eugene, Barger area and can be seen frequenting alt-right rallies in Salem with Joey Nations, and in Portland with Joey Gibson. At a recent Portland rally, Shallenberger was seen punching protesters and kicking activists in the head.
The Front Fizzles…For A Little While
After Bob Heick’s departure from American Front and Portland, AF fizzled out in Oregon and other groups such as Volksfront formed and largely replaced AF.Florida and California remained very active for the small remaining factions of American Front. On May 5th, 2012, ten members of the Florida branch of American Front were arrested and charged with paramilitary training, and shooting into an occupied building. On November 12th of that same year, Marcus Faella was convicted for his part in attempting to incite a race war and sentenced to only 6 months. Marcus Faella hired Florida attorney (and known white nationalist) Augustus Sol Invictus to appeal his conviction.
Augustus Invictus, Jake Laskey And Their Connection To American Front
Augustus Sol Invictus (who’s real name is Austin Gillespie, but he thinks Augustus sounds cooler) has been tied to American Front in more ways than just legal representation, as well as other known fascist organizations such as Operation Werewolf and the Wolves of Vinland.Invictus has visited Portland in the past, and Jake Laskey seems like quite the fanboy by the following conversations:
On October 13th, 2015, Jacob Laskey was released from prison after eleven years, where he was incarcerated for an attack on the Temple Beth Israel Synagogue in Eugene, Oregon.Part of his conviction also included being a felon in possession of a weapon, trying to arrange to have witnesses in his case killed, and calling in bomb threats to the courthouse where he was being tried. Laskey, in the past, was involved with both the American Front and then later, Volksfront. Shortly after Laskey’s release in 2015, there was a resurgence of the American Front in the Medford and Eugene areas. Most of the local American Front activity has taken the form of networking with other racist and white nationalist groups like the PNW Wolfpack/Hammerskins in Olympia, WA. The members act as local bullies and harass local business owners while, themselves, trying to make a buck off their AF apparel line, shoddy books, and cheap cosplay grade weaponry through regional gun and knife shows and the “armory” in Creswell, Oregon.
Jake Laskey is recently married to his longtime girlfriend Amanda. They live in Creswell in a Laskey family home.Jake can often be seen at local MMA competitions. He is a big fan of Jimmy Jennett who owns Checkered Past MMA, and can be seen in recent videos on Wolfclan Armory’s YouTube channel wearing the t-shirt while threatening antifascist activists. Jimmy Jennett has failed to call out his white supremacist fans including Jake, Cory Colwell, and Devin Wolfe.
American Front And Jimmy Marr
Eugene American Front members are routinely seen with local Springfield Neo-Nazi Jimmy Marr as well as working and hanging out at Wolfclan Armory in Creswell, Oregon.
Jimmy Marr, or as he is commonly referred to “Genocide Jimmy,” has recently made connections with the American Front crew. Marr lives on G Street in Springfield, Oregon, and drives around in a truck with racist and white supremacist messages and images. He often banner drops racist messages on overpasses along the I-5 corridor between Medford and Seattle.
The Laskeys And Jake’s Troubled Relationship With Firearms
Wolfclan is owned by Jake Laskey’s parents (Jeanette and Allen Laskey). Jake and his brother Gabriel (also convicted of the same crime as older brother Jake) often work at the shop.We’re pretty sure that Jake, as a felon, isn’t allowed around weapons, much less allowed to sell them as a condition of his parole.One would assume he wouldn’t be allowed to fraternize with neo-Nazis and publish hate speech books due to the nature of the crime he was convicted for.Jake’s probation officer, Todd, can be reached here: (541) 431-4065.
Jeffrey Thomas And Greystorm Productions, LLC
Members of American Front in Oregon recently started a Facebook page called Greystorm Productions, LLC where they sell AF support gear, Dave Lynch memorial shirts, and regularly post videos featuring white power bands. Greystorm Productions, LLC is a legal business entity operating in Oregon.Greystorm Productions, LLC is registered to Michael McDonald, who is a known associate of Jake Laskey, and a known member of the current incarnation of American Front living in the Coos Bay area.Interestingly, Greystorm Productions, LLC, is registered to the Portland address 1724 SE Tenino St. Portland, Oregon 97202, as well as the PO Box 82389 Portland, Oregon 97282. The address used for the LLC, 1724 SE Tenino, is also known as The Sellwood Center, a city run Section 8 housing complex. This address also happens to be the address of known American Front member Jeffrey Thomas AKA Jay Gray AKA J Skin, who can be seen daily walking his dog around the property, or grabbing milk at the convenience store down the street, while wearing American Front and Anti-Antifa apparel. Jeffrey’s past affiliations include Nationalist Socialist Movement (NSM), and the Volksfront affiliated “Blood & Honor American Division.”We wonder if the city of Portland would be happy to know that one of Oregon’s largest white power organizations happens to be running their business selling racist apparel from a city owned Section 8 housing complex. TheSellwood Center can be reached at 503-280-3940.

Pacific Northwest Wolfpack
The Pacific Northwest Wolfpack formed in 2016, out of Olympia, Washington, is comprised of mostly old Hammerskins and other independent white nationalists. PNW Wolfpack member Daniel Brett Rowe, aka Bret Thomas of Richland, who recently relocated to Olympia , was arrested in 2016 (awaiting trial) for the stabbing of an inter-racial couple in Olympia, WA, and two other members, Robert J. Fechtner and his girlfriend Cassie L. Hickam,were later arrested for attempted bribery of witnesses. Recently they have been tied to members of American Front such as Jake Laskey and Edward Mack AKA William Iron (singer Ironwill).

Operation Werewolf has members in Oregon andhave connections to American Front via Jake and Gabriel Laskey as shown in the photos below.
Greystorm Productions LLC
Jake Laskey and his crew have been very busy rebuilding the American Front in the Pacific NW, and have been building a substantial network of members and allies, along with a troubling system of income and branding through merchandise sales distributed through Greystorm Productions LLC. American Front has a very violent and deadly history and must be stopped.
On Sunday, August 6, 2017, radicalized alt-right, white nationalists rallied in Portland, Oregon with the intent to spread hateful rhetoric and assault community advocates for equity and justice. During the rally, several activists were targeted and assaulted resulting in numerous injuries including: concussions, facial fractures, a dislocated knee, and multiple lacerations and contusions of varying severity. The goal of this fundraiser is to assist in medical and health costs incurred by the victims. Monies raised will go towards covering the costs of ambulance use, emergency room visits, CAT scans & x-rays, surgery, prescriptions, and any additional needed treatment and costs including physical therapy. Thank you for supporting those who often risk their own safety as they confront creeping fascism in effort to secure a racist and fascist free future. An injury to one is an injury to all!
No words can do justice to the shock and horror we all feel towards the slayings of 5/26. Our hearts go out to the two selfless heroes who lost their lives, and to the third who was nearly fatally wounded. All of whom, in a single decisive moment, laid their lives on the line in order to make a stand against hatred and white supremacy in our community.
As for the assailant, he is a monster and a terrorist. His only motive was his toxic hatred, which has caused untold suffering to the families and loved ones of those he so brazenly murdered.
We should take a moment to also remember that he is not a one-off aberration, but rather a member of a hardcore coalition representing only the most repugnant, backward values; which happily resorts to horrifying violence in order to realize those values.
As a community, we cannot let our guard down. Louis Brandeis said that sunlight is the best disinfectant, and the only way to disinfect our community from hate is to bring it to light .
Therefore, in light of this tragic event, the PNWAWC reaffirms its commitment to outing and exposing those elements in our community who would do harm to innocent people because of their race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity.
PS – Please consider making a contribution to one of the fundraising efforts below. All proceeds will go to the families of the heroes of 5/26. We do not have any ties to them, but we are confident in their intent. Thank you.
On Sunday, April 2nd, comrades from Olympia Antifa were arrested in an anti-Trump counter-demonstration in Vancouver, WA. They are currently being held on $4,500 bail at the Clark County Jail, and desperately need funds to secure their release.
All arrestees have been detained on non-violent misdemeanor charges, and the reason for the exorbitant cost of the bond may be partially the fault of the local bail bonds company, whose ownership itself appears to be comprised of unapologetic Trump Supporters and white nationalists.

Steven’s Employer: Comcast Contractors
When a self-proclaimed “celebrity” for the KKK moves to the Pacific Northwest and thinks he’s going to start a Washington Chapter of the Klan what you gonna do? Bust him of course.
Steven Shane Howard, formerly of Tupelo, Mississippi now resides at 3004 SE Balboa Drive Vancouver, WA 98683 inside Fairway Village Golf Course (360-254-9325) in a home owned by Donald and Elise Schmidt. Steven moved to the area to marry his now wife, Kimberly (Finstad) Howard, who is also…. Surprise, surprise…. A White Supremacist (and lives at the same address).
While they have attended rallies together elsewhere (Pennsylvania), the March 4th Lake Oswego Trump rally was their first attempt at “coming out” here in the PNW. Flanked by their good friend Raymond Schneider (Washougal, WA), Steven and Kimberly attempted to spread their hate to the general public.
Steven was to be featured in the upcoming (now cancelled) TV show, Generation KKK and can be found in YouTube videos and articles with a simple search.
All three should be assumed armed and have a propensity for violence.
