Rose City Antifa, working in conjunction with allied groups in the region, has obtained information on many of the Pacific Northwest-located members of the white nationalist, alt-right group known as the Proud Boys. Over the coming weeks, we will be publishing a series of articles detailing the Proud Boys’ specific brand of organized hate, and the individuals who make up this rising “weekend warrior” gang, in order to alert the community about the threat that this group poses. You can follow along on our website and on Twitter, using the hashtag #DoxxAllYourBoys.

Please join us in contacting Siemens about their employee Caleb Stevens (details about Stevens can be found below.) Ask to speak to the branch manager or the HR department, and inform them that Caleb Stevens is a violent member of the Proud Boys hate group. Stevens has posted threating social media posts, and assaulted community members. He posts pictures of himself online with prominent white nationalists and fascists. He is homophobic and a misogynist. Tell them that the community will not stand for employees of corporations in the Portland area invading downtown in order to assault activists, and to defend fascists spreading hate and intolerance.

Robert Raymond Zerfing
Rose City Antifa has previously reported on Robert Zerfing’s far-right youtube venture, CSC Media. Since then, Zerfing has become an official member of the Proud Boys hate group. Zerfing’s past as a deadbeat dad and an alleged domestic abuser fit right in with the Proud Boys brand of smug and violent misogyny. In two separate legal proceedings, judges have ruled that Zerfing owed back child support that had not been paid to two different mothers of his children. These two former partners have each accused him of domestic abuse in court filings as well. One of them also claimed that the police were called on him for domestic violence at least once.
In addition to being a violent misogynist, Zerfing’s far-right politics could be said to not only be fascist enabling, but fascist sympathizing. Zerfing’s “CSC media” project exists as a platform for him to clumsily emulate an Alex Jones style of demagoguery which bears no resemblance to actual journalism, but instead peddles sensational lies which appeal to the resentments of his intended audience. Zerfing has, for example, repeated a vile revisionist history around Heather Heyer’s vehicular murder at Charlottesville, propagated dangerous misidentification of mass shooters, and pushed countless believable-only-to-people-desperate-to-believe-it “ANTIFA” hoaxes such as the “November 4 Antifa Super Soldier Civil War”.
Zerfing also runs the Washington State Patriot Response Facebook page, which celebrates political murders carried out by fascist state leaders such as Augusto Pinochet and Rodrigo Duterte, as well as violence and murder carried out by right-wing paramilitary death squads. When it comes to Patriot Prayer’s well-documented practice of facilitating fascist and neo-Nazi organizing, Zerfing’s first rhetorical strategy is to merely deny that it exists. But when pressed further, he actually expresses an affinity with Nazis that extends into fantasizing about forming a crew of Proud Boys to protect Hitler himself against those who opposed his genocidal programs. A perusal through Rose City Antifa’s articles from the past year will reveal numerous instances of Robert Zerfing rallying with neo-nazis.

Travis Wayne Nugent
Travis Nugent has rapidly become one of the most visible Proud Boys currently acting at the beck and call of Joey Gibson. Large and insecure, he most often resorts to bellowing at close range and aggresively invading the personal space of activists. Dozens of videos can be found of Nugent blustering his stale-chaw breath in the faces of people half his size. On rare occasions (after it is clear that someone has been cornered, thoroughly outnumbered, and weakened by punches from other people) Nugent will also jump in and start attempting to throw punches himself. He has also been spotted jumping in alongside lines of riot cops as they strike anti-fascist protesters with batons. Nugent attempts to join in their shoving, so he can pretend that he is police too.
Nugent’s other claim to fame is driving the Proud Boy bus, which is parked on his property.
Two separate twitter users notice and capture photographs of Proud Boy Travis Nugent bellowing in the face of a woman half his size at Patriot Prayer’s extremely violent June 3, 2018 rally. This is normal Travis Nugent behavior, and is encouraged by the Proud Boys.

As you can see, Nugent and other Proud Boys are marching in a crowd that includes neo-Nazi Thorsson Snyder, PDX Stormers member “Might is Right,” Proud Boys Jason James and Sean Mitchell, violent far-right youtuber Kerry Hudson, and holocaust denier Greg Isaacson.

Ethan Michael Nordean
Ethan Nordean likely has the highest vanity-muscles-to-meaningful-accomplishments ratio among members in the Pacific Northwest chapter of the Proud Boys hate group. Perhaps uncoincidentally, Nordean co-owns a protein supplement company, although this company largely serves to distribute photo-shopped glamor selfies of Nordean coupled with trite motivational meme-messaging.
Nordean first began appearing at Patriot Prayer rallies in June of 2017 under the moniker “Rufio Panman,” a reference to a character in Steven Spielberg’s Peter Pan film Hook. The name of his supplement company, Bangarang Elite Supplements LLC, is also a reference to that film. All speculation about “Peter Pan complexes” aside, we do know for a fact that Nordean has repeatedly attacked activists who show up to oppose fascist activity at Joey Gibson’s Patriot Prayer rallies.

He is seen here marching with Patriot Prayer founder Joey Gibson, as well as with fellow Proud Boys Nick Boling, Dominic Laufenberg, and Spenser O’Neill.

Caleb Jordan Stevens
Caleb Stevens likes to pretend that he is a “peace keeper” while fighting on the side of fascists. Stevens typically likes to wear an undertaker-ish suit coupled with a brightly colored American-flag-themed power tie, but occasionally also puts on a too-small plate-carrier and dresses in the style of the “militia” LARPers who have become common at Joey Gibson’s far-right Patriot Prayer events. Caleb Stevens works at Siemens Building Technologies.
