Kevin Lyons

Kevin on Jan 6th stormed the Capitol and livestreamed from inside Nancy Pelosi’s office. On his arrival back home in Jefferson Park, the feds arrested him, initially serving him with misdemeanors, later, felonies.  Per the feds request, this #snitch quickly uploading and turning over to the “Very Nice FBI Lady”, copies of his livestreams, essentially ratting out his fellow MAGA rioters, according to CBS here. He was fired from his job, in which he was a union pipefitter. Kevin has been on our radar for a minute; in fact, we used his livestream to identify members of the Proud Boys over the summer, of whom he is friends with and rolled with fairly regularly, check out our report-backs here and here. Kevin also got arrested for starting a fight at a BLM rally one time over the summer. Check out our photo gallery of Kevin Lyons. Check out another article on Kevin’s arrest here.

Here are scrapings of Kevin’s twitter data.

He was at the capitol riot although we have yet to find him in footage inside the building. He was a guest one time on Ashley’s “The Right Questions”


Edgar Delatorre AKA Remy Del Toro

Edgar. Delatorre AKA Remy Del Toro, the leader of the Chicago / Schaumburg Proud Boys could be in big trouble, seeing how as of 2-8-2020, 11 different Proud Boys have been arrested by the feds for participating in the Capitol Hill riots, including the former leader and recently outed as being a “Prolific” snitch, Enrique Tarrio (read about all that here). In these photos, Remy is walking along another as-of-yet unidentified Schaumburg Proud Boy, standing next to Remy in the last two photos. While nobody has yet seen Remy inside the capitol itself, he definitely was marching with the crew, dressed ‘incognito’ in Chud Bloc, all around the capitol, where many proud boys split off and entered the capitol. Remy has been to every DC MAGA superspreader rally, including Nov 14th and Dec 12,  marching with other proud boys who drunkenly engaged in street violence against locals and Black Lives Matter activists.  Find out more about Remy and his crew of piss boys at our photo gallery here.

Space Cowboy AKA #AllBlackBabyThor

This Schaumburg Proud Boy’s name has yet to be identified. But it is known that he rolls with Remy del Toro at various rallies, most especially at the rolling Schaumburg Golf and Meechem rallies until the very end, more on those here.

In DC, “Space Cowboy” came loaded for bear with a plate carrier, a flagpole with “We the People / Melon Labe” with engraved runes, a radio communicator, mace, and the Thor’s hammer necklace we used to identify him (this is a symbol appropriated by white nationalists). But he also wore a helmet purchased at fellow Schaumburg Proud Boy “Gun Show” Greg Tanacea’s at his website Meaning, Gunshow Greg is complicit as well in the DC riots by supplying equipment to members of the violent fascists Proud Boys, in which he himself is also a member, more on him here.
