1/ Let's talk about the NSC-131, a neo-Nazi group connecting the Reopen protests to anti-Black Lives Matter vigilante posses.

It's Chris Hood, formerly of the Proud Boys, Patriot Front, and The Base.

Last week, they did security for Super Happy Fun America at a Reopen rally.
2/ To start, "NSC-131" stands for "Nationalist Social Club," and "131" is alphanumeric code for "ACA"-- "anti-communist action."

They're American fascists-- still Nazis-- but the word "socialist" doesn't play well with them, hence the "Nationalist social" pun.
3/ The group is run by Chris Hood, who was Patriot Front's northeast NDO before he was kicked out for stealing print shop money to buy weed.

After that, he joined The Base before forming the NSC-131.

More on Hood's background here.
4/ The group also includes Zachary Brackett, a member of The Base who may or may not have stabbed a member of Patriot Front.
5/ In January, The Base collapsed after three Georgia members were arrested for attempted murder and their leader, "Norman Spear," was revealed by @jason_a_w to be Rinaldo Nazzarro.…
6/ At the moment, they're primarily doing three things.

The first is recruiting exploiting fears of Black protesters to create vigilante gangs of reactionary white men.

Here's one of their flyers from their Telegram channel. (I cut off the contact info at the bottom.)
7/ Last week, they showed up at a Boston Black Lives Matter event to skulk around and try to intimidate protesters.
8/ The second is forming deep ties with Super Happy Fun America, the alt-light group that sponsored the Straight Pride Parade in August 2019, and has been co-organizing the Reopen rallies in Massachusetts.

Last week, the NSC-131 did security for SHFA at a Reopen rally.
9/ In this photo, posted to their Telegram channel, they're handing a flyer to Super Happy Fun America associate Brandon Sullivan.

The clothes match the ones Sullivan were wearing that day, in this photo in which he was tagged on Facebook.
10/ Last summer, Sullivan traveled to DC with SHFA's Samson Racioppi and Danny Gilbertsen, a member of the Patriot Saints, a splinter cell of anti-immigrant hate group the Soldiers of Odin.
11/ But it's no surprise that the NSC-131 would be working hand-in-hand with Super Happy Fun America.

Even though SHFA claims not to like Nazis, Hood has organized alongside them for years, going back to when they were called "Resist Marxism."
12/ And those aren't the only Nazi ties that Super Happy Fun America has.

At the Straight Pride Parade, their t-shirt banner was carried by Anthony Petruccelli, a longtime NSM member with connections to The Base and the NSC-131.
13/ Besides recruiting vigilante gangs and working with Super Happy Fun America, the last thing that the NSC-131 is doing seems to be feuding over turf with fellow neo-Nazis Patriot Front.
14/ After Chris Hood was kicked out of Patriot Front for stealing print shop money to buy weed, there was some sort of physical confrontation between the two groups, in which Zachary Brackett may have stabbed another neo-Nazi.
15/ Hood also reached out to me, offering to snitch on his neo-Nazi "brothers" in Patriot Front.
16/ I don't give up my sources, but if you're gonna say you're not a Nazi anymore, and then I catch you starting a new Nazi org, you can go to hell.

After Hood offered to snitch to me, Patriot Front's new leader in the northeast was doxxed.

Hi Kieran!
17/ As part of the NSC-131's turf war with Patriot Front, Zachary Brackett's been posting NSC stickers over Patriot Front's at various locations in Massachusetts.
18/ More video of Brackett posting NSC stickers over Patriot Front recruiting materials.
19/ The NSC is recruiting nationally, too, probably from former members of Patriot Front and The Base, and they appear to have formed an alliance with tradcath neo-Nazis the Legion of St. Ambrose in Tennessee.
20/ If you're going to be at anti-police protests in New England, keep an eye out for the NSC-131.

So far, I've documented seven members in New England, two of them being Chris Hood and Zachary Brackett.

As for the rest of them-- you've got my attention, boys.
21/ While Trump screams about "ANTIFA" and wants to declare us a domestic terrorist organization, local law enforcement is letting neo-Nazi groups run wild.

The police won't protect us.

Who protects us?

We protect us.
