It has been several months since thousands of internal messages of the hate group Identity Evropa were published by Unicorn Riot. Following the release of the group’s chats, antifascist groups began to #IdentifyEvropa, which caused Patrick Casey to rebrand Identity Evropa as American Identity Movement. Despite the shifty aesthetics, American Identity Movement (Abbreviated AmIM to avoid confusion with AIM, the American Indian Movement) is still the same violent neo-Nazi group that planned the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017. In 2018, a dues-paying member of the group painted Swastikas on an Indiana Synagogue and attempted to set fire to it. Today, we bring you two more members of Identity Evropa/AmIM: Meet Joshua and Holly Lourenco.

Unicorn Riot recently released the chat logs of the white nationalist group Identity Europa, which contains almost 250k messages from approximately 900 unique users. After these logs were released, the organization clumsily attempted to re-brand itself as the "American Identity Movement," but has been unable to stop the steady flow of revelations about the identities and beliefs of its racist membership. This brief article will reveal the identity of "DeusVolk" to be San Diego resident Alex Loupe, but for context, we also recommend anti-fascist articles on other southern California members such as Patrick Kevin Kelly, Christopher Thompson, Joe Arrigo, Blaze Kody Spon, Kyle Aaron Scheuerlein, Sean Miner, Logan Piercy, Courtney Piercy, and NoCARA's articles on DIY Division aka the Rise Above Movement.

In March of 2019, the independent and non-profit news organization Unicorn Riot released the latest set of chat logs from a variety of white nationalist, Alt-Right, and neo-Nazi groups – many of which organized the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.

Patrick Kevin Kelly is in his early 30's, is a self-avowed fascist living in Lakewood, and is a student at Long Beach City College. We feel that you, residents of the community, should know a little more about Patrick and the danger he poses so that our community can unite against white supremacy.

Several weeks ago, the National Policy Institute (NPI) held its annual conference in Washington DC, which ended with NPI head Richard Spencer declaring, "Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail Victory!" as people in the audience threw up their arms in fascist salutes. While images of white supremacists Sieg-Heiling went viral online, it did nothing to stem the tide of media spotlight that the mainstream bestowed upon Spencer. After the conference, white supremacists on the podcast, "Intersectional Alt-Right" with Andrew Anglin (of The Daily Stormer) and Jazzhands McFeels discussed the event and talked about how a gap was widening between the "older vanguard" (like Jared Taylor of American Renaissance and Peter Brimelow of V-DARE) and the "new generation," (headed by Richard Spencer and many others who grew out of the Alt-Right subculture of Neo-Nazi podcasts and memes). But another key player was emerging: Identity Evropa.
