Statement Regarding the City of Portland and the Police Bureau's February 21 Listening Session

The recent uproar in the media and activist community regarding the Portland Police Bureau’s communications with Joey Gibson did not take us by surprise, but only served to prove what has been known to many for some time.

Kim Costello - Secret Proud Boy Business Owner In Montavilla

At the center of a current maelstrom of far-right infighting involving Patriot Prayer and the Proud Boys is a relative newcomer calling himself “Vittorio DiNove.” Thanks to information leaked by “Vittorio’s” resentful fellow far-right activists, who tend to get paranoid about new recruits rising too quickly through their ranks, we are exposing his real identity today as Kim Warner Costello, an extremely violent member of the Proud Boys hate group who works at Gearheads Motorworks, an automotive repair business owned by his partner in the Montavilla neighborhood of Portland, OR.

Bogdan Gerasimyuk - Vancouver WA neo-Nazi

Matthew Blais and Bogdan Gerasimyuk, two neo-Nazis associated with the Portland Daily Stormer Book Club, are employed by Securitas in Vancouver, WA as private security guards.

On November 17, 2018, Patriot Prayer member Haley Adams is holding a misogynist and rape-apologist rally in downtown Portland, co-hosted by Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson, and Quincy Anatello, a member of the Christian extremist group the “Hell Shaking Street Preachers”.
