Alexander Becker - One of Patriot Prayer's Steadfast Nazis

Published on Feb 05, 2018

Alexander Becker

Alexander Wolfgang Becker is a Nazi that was in attendance at almost every Patriot Prayer event in 2017. For a long time, we’ve been referring to him by an alias “Mike Gainer.” Now, Rose City Antifa is ready to reveal this fascist’s name, address, and a full account of his organizing activities in the area, as well as his membership in the group of local white supremacists, known as the PDX Stormers.

Who are the PDX Stormers?

The Daily Stormer is a Nazi commentary site run by Andrew Anglin. It’s forums are one of the larger hubs for white supremacist activity online, and even though the website has been continuously kicked off of hosting all around the world over the last six months, it still exists on the dark web.

For some time now, forum members have been meeting in groups in public, which they call Stormer Book Clubs. In March, the Portland Stormer Book Club was kicked out of the Lucky Lab pub. Many of those participants were members of the CCC Discord server, and Corvallis neo-Nazi David Woods, along with Jimmy Marr and others, came up to meet the PDX Stormers on that occasion.

The PDX Stormers have also been noteable participants in Joey Gibson’s Patriot Prayer events. Despite the documentation Rose City Antifa and other allied groups, Gibson continues to welcome these Nazis at his events, where they frequently attack activists.

Alexander Becker’s Racist Road Rage

Alexander Becker’s racism pre-dates Patriot Prayer’s events, and even the Trump administration itself. Early in the morning of September 11, 2016, Becker pulled his car into a McDonalds Drive-Thru in Vancouver, WA. Ahead of him in line was a Latino man. According to the arresting officer, Becker began honking his horn and shouting racial slurs at the man. The man then got out of his car and punched Becker in the face, bloodying his nose. Becker was arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct. The charge was held, if Becker remained on good behavior. However, as we will see below, he certainly did not.

Becker Finds Patriot Prayer

The 82nd Avenue March on April 29, 2017 was the first time Rose City Antifa saw Alexander Becker at a Patriot Prayer event. He was there in the company of other PDX Stormers, who managed to stage a photo with the mayor.

Becker quickly became a fixture at Patriot Prayer events over 2017, both by himself and with other members of the PDX Stormers.

Becker at DACA rally.
On September 5th, 2017, hundreds of people rallied in downtown Portland in the wake of Donald Trump’s announcement that he would be cancelling the DACA, or “Dream Act.” A small number of fascists were also in attendance. At the rally, a local television station interviewed PDX Stormer neo-Nazi Jarl Rockhill, giving him a platform to spout racist rhetoric about “illegals.” Alexander Becker can be seen beside Rockhill during the interview.

Becker on September 10th.
Alexander Becker attended Joey Gibson’s hastily-relocated September 10, 2017 Patriot Prayer rally in Vancouver, WA along with other PDX Stormer affiliated neo-Nazis such as Jarl Rockhill and the fascist we are currently calling “Might is Right”.

Becker on October 9th.
In his eagerness to attend far right rallies and spread neo-Nazi ideology, Becker apparently attempted to attend a “No to Marxism in Oregon” rally in Lincoln City on October 9th, 2017. The rally never materialized.

On October 15th, 2017, Joey Gibson held a rally in Salem, OR which Alexander Becker and a number of other PDX Stormers attended. Patriot Prayer made certain to include the neo-Nazis in their group photo from the event.

Kathryn Townsend’s sign indicates her refusal to acknowledge the well-established fact that Nazi proselytization is imbued with, organizes for, and directly precedes racist violence.

It’s Okay to Be White

Becker also showed up with other members of the PDX Stormers to the two “It’s Okay to be White” racist dog-whistle events held in Vancouver.

Alexander Becker also attended a second “It’s Okay To Be White” neo-nazi propaganda rally on November 25, 2017. He is pictured in this video composite standing with neo-Nazi pedophile Jarl Rockhill, neo-nazi Raul Gonzalez, and Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson. Gibson’s young child is seen standing a short distance from the group on the sidewalk.

Becker is seen at the November 25, 2017 rally posing with Tiny Toese, who is wearing a “Pepe the Frog” mask, and also making a tortured pun about “white power,” which is rendered even less funny by revelations that Becker is an un-ironic neo-Nazi.

December 9 IOTBW mini-rally
After Patriot Prayer’s anti-immigrant hate rally on December 9th, 2017, Alexander Becker took it upon himself to hold a miniature rendition of the “It’s Okay To Be White” neo-nazi propaganda rallies which had happened twice before.

After fliers with the slogan showed up on the campus of Clark College in Vancouver, Becker posted an article about it, and accused a member of the Clark College staff of “self hate” for speaking out against the racist postings.

Becker mocks the staff of Clark College for speaking out against racism.

Given that Becker lives a mere 10 minutes from the Clark College campus, Rose City Antifa would guess that he and the PDX Stormers know exactly who is responsible for posting the fliers.

PCC Fliering

Although Rose City Antifa can’t say for sure that Becker was involved in the fliering at Clark College, we do know he was part of the group of seven Nazis that fliered the Portland Community College Campus on December 23, 2017.

Along with activists from the neo-Nazi group Patriot Front, members of the PDX Stormers put up a wide array of fascist and racist propaganda on the campus, which were all quickly taken down.

PCC fliers

Alexander Becker is easily spotted in the surveillance camera images with other members of the PDX Stormers, wearing the same unique yellow jacket that he wore to both racist “It’s Okay To Be White” rallies in Vancouver, WA(see above).

Also, his car, a green Mercury Mountaineer, was seen leaving the campus. See below for a full description of that vehicle.
