As We Suspected: FBI Has Been Targeting and Tracking and Patriot Front for Over a Year Now
The mysterious Patriot Front group, that likes to march in formation in khaki pants and ride in Uhaul trucks together, was seen marching in Boston today.
On Saturday they carried their flags along the Freedom Trail in Boston.

Two weeks ago members of the Patriot Front group were arrested in Idaho for planning a protest at the Gay Pride rally.
They were traveling to a gay pride event with shields in the back of a Uhaul. They had no other weapons.
They had committed no violence but possibly could have — so they were arrested.
Law enforcement in Idaho admitted they had informants inside the Patriot Front group before their arrests.
Since the Patriot front group first appeared, The Gateway Pundit always suspected they had links to the Feds. We were convinced they were infiltrated by federal agents.

This young man has been arrested as noted below. The FBI is notorious for taking individuals who have been arrested and through threats encouraging them to work with the FBI as informants.
We also located some notes related to interviews the Patriot Front has had with potential candidates for the group. In these notes for one individual identified as Gabriel in California, it is noted that this candidate is a government informant. Also, four individuals offer references on the guy.
Below is a composite of the group.
And now this — The FBI has admitted they have been “tracking” the group for over a year now.
Kyle Becker reported:
The FBI had been tracking the group for more than a year before Coeur d’Alene Police arrested a purported ‘small army’ of members at the Idaho Pride event. According to the Associated Press, among those arrested was Thomas Ryan Rousseau, identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as founder of the group after the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
The Rolling Stone published documents that reveal the FBI has been eying the Patriot Front group for over a year now.
What a surprise!
Via The Rolling Stone.
When Coeur d’Alene police slapped the cuffs on members of the white nationalist group Patriot Front at a Pride event this month, the 31 fresh-faced fascists had little clue that FBI agents in the region had been keeping an eye on the group’s activities in Idaho for at least a year.
New documents show how Idaho cops and FBI agents were tracking white nationalists from Patriot Front months before the group was arrested this month for allegedly conspiring to attack a local LGBT Pride event in Coeur d’Alene.
Emails obtained through records requests by Property of the People, a Washington, DC-based transparency nonprofit, demonstrate that FBI agents in the area both reported and were updated on Patriot Front-related acts of vandalism as far back as August 2021. Those agents also helped Coeur d’Alene police prepare for Patriot Front’s alleged conspiracy to riot at a June Pride event, when local law enforcement arrested 31 members of the group.
The documents also show how conservatives’ Qanon-style rhetoric casting LGBT people as “groomers” and “pedophiles” has animated the far-right and shaped its targeting. Emails from city and law enforcement officials show threats against Coeur d’Alene’s LGBT groups came from a wider array of far-right groups than just Patriot Front…
…The FBI had warned local police about the activity before. In a list of Patriot Front-related vandalism incidents, local police noted that the FBI had reported “two males” who they “reported walking up and down 4th St putting propaganda stickers on light poles that read ‘for the nation against the state,’” alongside Patriot Front’s website address. The feds were “Unable to locate the individuals involved,” according to call notes associated with the incident.
