Matteo Dagradi

Matteo Dagradi’s first Patriot Prayer rally was at Esther Short Park in Vancouver WA on April 2, 2017. Almost a month before that date, however he had already publicly avowed the Proud Boys, and shortly afterward he posted a gentle “beat-in” video on Facebook. He wore the group’s appropriated black-and-gold Fred Perry shirt to Gibson’s hate rally in the Montavilla neighborhood. Since that time, Dagradi has attended most of Joey Gibson’s rallies and frequently marched in the company of fascist organizers. Dagradi legally changed his name from Matthew William Judy in late 2006.

Donovon Flippo

Donovon L Flippo

Donovon Flippo is a Vancouver, WA Proud Boy. Often seen in the company of Russell Schultz and Tusitala “Tiny” Toese (the three lived together at one time), he is a common sight at Patriot Prayer events.

In late May, Donovon Flippo, Tiny Toese, and Russell Schultz picked a fight with some teenagers at the Vancouver Mall. They yelled racist pro-Trump harassment at them, then Toese and Donovon jumped out of their truck to attack them. Flippo later posted the victims’ video of the attack to his facebook wall to gloat and tagged Toese in the post. Their comments spelled out the nature of the assault, and gave Proud Boy Russell Schultz an opportunity to make a racist “dindu nuffin” joke.

Proud Boys gloat about fighting teenagers at the mall.

On June 8, 2018, Flippo and Toese allegedly assaulted a bystander while driving through Portland with fellow Proud Boys Russell Schultz. At the time all three were driving around in Schultz’s truck harassing pedestrians by yelling pro-Trump rhetoric at them– not the first time they have done so. This trend of driving around trying to “trigger the libs” and then assaulting anyone who responds is a disturbing increase in violence for the Proud Boys. Flippo was arrested on June 30th for this attack and was charged with disorderly conduct, but was released and the case was closed.

Flippo is also the ex-brother-in-law of Proud Boy, far right YouTuber, deadbeat dad, and domestic violence perpetrator Robert Zerfing.
