White Supremacist Organizer Jacob Ott is Not Welcome in Portland

Jacob Ott (aka Jake Von Ott, Jake Frank) is the Oregon regional coordinator for Identity Europa. We first began reporting on him when, along with several other white supremacists, neo-nazis, and white nationalists, he appeared at Joey Gibson’s April 29th “Free Speech” march in the immigrant Montavilla neighborhood of Portland. Multiple participants in Joey Gibson’s rally, including Jake, were seen throwing nazi salutes and posting white supremacist propaganda along 82nd Ave. We have provided extensive information about Jacob Ott’s self-professed beliefs and activities since that time.

Jacob recruits for Identity Europa, a violent white supremacist organization founded by neo-nazi Nathan Damigo (who robbed a taxicab driver at gunpoint, believing that the man was Iraqi). In multiple interviews, Jacob has attempted to paint Identity Europa as a “respectable” organization, claiming that it is merely “white identitarian” and not white supremacist.

Twitter photo posted by Ott
Twitter photo posted by Ott, of a Identity Europa sticker he put up near his workplace. The sticker was subsequently replaced and dealt with appropriately.

Portlanders aware of their city’s recent history, however, will recognize the uncanny similarity of this organization’s “white genocide” and “white pride” talking points to older organizations such as PUSH (Portland United Skinheads), POWAR (Preservation of the White American Race), and East Side White Pride; these formerly prominent regional white supremacist organizations coordinated waves of racialized violence in Portland not thirty years ago. Also, if you look at Ott’s own social media postings (depicted in detail below) it is very clear that he is a nazi-worshipping, racist fascist.

Those former fascist organizations were successfully opposed and destroyed by autonomous community organizing, and Rose City Antifa stands in solidarity with all Portlanders who seek that the polo-shirt-and-khakis nazis of Identity Europa meet the same fate.

We will now provide thorough details of Jacob Ott’s employment and housing information. We encourage you to call his employer, United Card Solutions, and tell them that Portland does not want white supremacist organizers in our downtown!

Update: Jake Ott is no longer employed by United Card Solutions! Thanks so much for calling in, and helping make our phone jam a success!

White Supremacists Allowed to Organize in Public

Joey Gibson and the American Freedom Warriors continues to hold rallies and to march alongside open fascists such as Jacob Ott, despite their being aware of the evidence of Ott’s fascist and rascist beliefs, published by Rose City Antifa.
