1/ Let’s talk about a III%er turned Proud Boy turned Resist Marxism turned Patriot Front turned The Base affiliate.

He now runs a new crew, the National Socialist Club, based on football hooliganism.



Some of you already know him.



His name is Chris Hood, of Boston, MA. Chris Hood, ex-Patriot Fron...ImageImage
2/ Chris Hood started out as a III% militia member in high school.

This thread will trace his evolution in the past five years, from a teenage Threeper to starting his own crew, a spinoff of The Base known as the National Socialist Club. ImageImage
3/ This is a story about how every part of the far-right is a gateway to violence and oppression.

After starting a III%er club for high-school students in 2015, Hood joined the Northeast USA Proud Boys in 2017, serving as an Admin for their Facebook group. ImageImage
4/ In August 2017, he attended the Boston Free Speech rally held immediately after Unite the Right, where he was quoted by @vox, saying there were no Nazis there.

White nationalist Kyle "Based Stickman" Chapman was a featured speaker. Image
5/ Shortly after this, Chris joined Patriot Front and began attending events sponsored by Resist Marxism, the precursor to Super Happy Fun America and the Straight Pride Parade.

This is him on October 2017 with Kyle "Based Stickman" Chapman and Proud Boy Kenny Lizardo. ImageImage
6/ In December 2017, he attended a protest of the Harvard Coop with Boston Free Speech, wearing a Patriot Front mask.

The neo-Nazi regalia didn't seem to bother the "free speech" folks. Image
7/ Probably because Boston Free Speech itself was always a fascist front.

For more on their far-right connections, see here.
8/ By January 2018, he was a regular at Resist Marxism events.

From left-to-right:

-Mark Sahady, Straight Pride Parade organizer
-Chris Hood, former Patriot Front, The Base, and NSC
-Michael Costa, Proud Boy and "Groyper Dragon"
-John Medlar, Boston Free Speech Image
9/ By this point, he was an active member of the neo-Nazi Patriot Front.

In leaked Patriot Front chats, founder Thomas Rousseau praised Hood's work ethic in February 2018.

10/ In March 2018, he attended a Resist Marxism counterprotest of the March for Our Lives while wearing a Patriot Front mask.

But far from being kicked out, he was carrying Resist Marxism's official sign. ImageImage
11/ In May of 2018, Hood was publicly identified as a member of Patriot Front in a ThinkProgress article on Resist Marxism.

Kyle Chapman claimed not to know who Hood was. thinkprogress.org/resist-marxism…
12/ In November 2018, Hood led a group of masked Patriot Front members to attempt to violently disrupt the Boston Anarchist Bookfair. bostonanarchistbookfair.org/2018/fascists-…
13/ From there, Hood continued to attend Resist Marxism events without complaint.

At the December 2018 Resist Marxism debate on immigration, Patriot Front was enlisted to perform security.

Below is Hood with Resist Marxism/Straight Pride organizer Mark Sahady. Image
14/ In January 2019, Hood took a group of six masked Patriot Front members to post neo-Nazi flyers around a Latinx neighborhood in East Boston.

Three of them were arrested for weapons possession.

15/ Flash forward to the fall of 2019, when Chris Hood was kicked out of Patriot Front, allegedly for stealing their sticker money to buy weed.

And that, reader, is the only cool thing he's ever done. Image
16/ From there, Chris Hood ran crying to me, like fascists always do, begging to snitch on his white brothers in Patriot Front.

I offered to set him up with an exit counselor to *actually* leave white nationalism, but all he wanted to do was snitch. ImageImage
17/ Funny how right after that, the Northeast head of Patriot Front got doxxed.

Hi, Kieran Morris, you Nazi jabroni!
18/ Shortly after getting DAS BOOT from Patriot Front in the fall of 2019, Hood joined The Base, a neo-Nazi accelerationist group, posting flyers at his old target, the anarchist book fair.

He also posted tweets from his old nemesis, @jaykelly26, in The Base chats. ImageImage
19/ Chris Hood's tenure in The Base was shortlived, so I've only got one photo with him in it, but he's easily identifiable in his favorite hat and pants. ImageImageImage
20/ For more on the neo-Nazi accelerationist ideology of The Base, see here.
21/ In January 2020, three members of The Base were arrested in Georgia for planning the murder of a couple that they believed to be antifascist activists. npr.org/2020/01/17/797…
22/ Following that shakeup, The Base's membership began to drop off.

Hood left, and founded the National Socialist Club.

And it was here that his troubles began.
23/ I'll be tweeting more about Chris Hood and the NSC tomorrow, including their links to the international terrorist group Feuerkrieg Division, Natural Order, and former Base members.

And starting next week, I'll be exposing the identities of their members.

Stay tuned.
