You’ve never actually read the constitution have you?
Since you know now that I’m white, does that mean you think the constitution WAS written for me?
It was written for all mankind, dumb ass. https://t.co/yAI5ojLtVo
The “patriot front” group is a bunch of Feds…Real patriots don’t wear ridiculous white scarves covering their face. And when they all left The Mall in their U-Haul, why didn’t anyone think to follow them?— ??ProudArmyBrat (@leslibless) December 5, 2021
STAGED! They think we’re stupid!
But it’s what those so called- “Patriot Front” agents WEREN’T Wearing or Carrying that is the True “Tell”!— Militia.Liaison (@ChristianLiais1) December 6, 2021
After this “Face-Value” BS.. Literally NO ONE actually IN ANY Militia Group throughout the entire USA heard of ANYTHING about this “Militia March” prior to them showing up!
This doesn’t look like a real Patriot group to me ?— Hunter (@OccDis) December 6, 2021
Where are the fat people? Where are the based blacks? Where are the flamboyant homosexuals and drag queens? Where are the fat Boomers with their Israeli flags? Where are all the mouthy tattooed skanks on Facebook Live? https://t.co/Gvfgq1mE57
Do you see anyone LARPing with guns in body armor? Do you see anyone selling merch? Like I said, this ISN’T real— Hunter (@OccDis) December 6, 2021
Remember when Conservative Inc. called all of them Feds.— ?? Six Million ?? (@StKyleOfAntioch) December 6, 2021

There has been a lot of confusion about the Patriot Front rally in DC.
The major source of the confusion is that the look and actions of Patriot Front are simply unintelligible to folks in the Patriot movement. “They must be feds” because they come across as so different. This misunderstanding is largely due to a lack of communication and an assessment of the Patriot movement by Patriot Front. The two come out of different “far right” traditions.
- Patriot Front holds unannounced flash rallies to avoid violent collisions with Antifa, to exclude “journalists,” to exclude unvetted people who show up at public events with their own agenda, to avoid set ups by corrupt local governments, to avoid lawfare, and so on.
- Patriot Front holds these tightly controlled, highly vetted demonstrations because the group wants to control their message and public image to attract likeminded people.
- Patriot Front doesn’t LARP around in public with guns because the point isn’t to show off their weapons. This isn’t central to their ideology.
- Patriot Front doesn’t have fat people at their demonstrations because the group is focused on healthy living, sobriety and physical fitness.
- Patriot Front wasn’t at the Capitol Siege like the Proud Boys or Oathkeepers because the group had no interest in being associated with or used and discarded by Donald Trump.
- Patriot Front doesn’t have lots of mouthy, middle aged White women with tattoos at their demonstrations because no one is sleeping around with them.
- Patriot Front doesn’t have fat Boomers parading around with Israeli flags at their demonstrations because those people are cringe.
- Patriot Front doesn’t have legions of based blacks, flamboyant homosexuals or drag queens at their events because the group isn’t insecure. They aren’t trying to prove that “Dems R Real Racists” or the real homophobes. They aren’t trying to conserve liberalism. Confident White men don’t need to use minorities as tokens to speak for them or to have their women at their events.
- Patriot Front isn’t a company that is selling merch on Facebook Live.
I’m not a member of the group.
I’ve encountered them before at previous events though. I understand what they are doing and trying to accomplish. I also have some passing familiarity with the Patriot movement from my days as an activist. These are very different scenes which appeal to different people.
