Matthew Robert Warner is the Chief of Staff of the fascist group, Identity Evropa, which recently rebranded as the 'American Identity Movement' shortly after Unicorn Riot leaked the group's Discord chat logs. Matt Warner is a very active and longtime member of Identity Evropa—he identified as a member in early 2017. As Chief of Staff, he was a moderator of the Identity Evropa Discord server and coordinated many of the logistics of Identity Evropa's activism, membership, and technology. He was also the main organizer of both the 2018 and 2019 'Leading our People Forward' Identity Evropa conferences in Kentucky. Matt Warner is prolific in placing Identity Evropa posters and stickers throughout the Washington, DC metro area as well as the state of Virginia. He travels extensively in order to attend Identity Evropa's pop-up activism in various cities. These trips have included New York City on at least two occasions. He also appeared alongside other longtime Identity Evropa members in a key picture taken at the White Nationalist "American Renaissance" conference in July 2017, while Nathan Damigo was still the head of the organization. As an Identity Evropa member, Matt Warner confirmed that he would attend the deadly 2017 "Unite the Right" (UTR) rally in Charlottesville, VA, and was involved in the UTR planning chats.
