The Fourth Alarm

References to weight training are ubiquitous on the FashyFit profile. The account name satirizes the Planet Fitness franchise. It strains the imagination to believe that multiple attendees shared all these similarities with AgreeAndAmp/FashyFit. The “Game”/white nationalist website Chateau Heartiste cited AgreeAndAmp’s Twitter (and posted a screenshot) in an article on “Fash Game”–in other words, integrating fascist references within a pickup artist routine.

While each of these interactions carries little evidential weight on its own, cumulatively the fact that FashyFit relates to several of the same personalities as Patrick Sharp, provides some reason to believe that they may be the same person. On November 30, 2016, FashyFit wrote about completing college. In November 2016, white nationalists gathered in Washington, DC for their movement’s first major US conference following Trump’s election victory.

While the account biography has subsequently been changed, in late 2016 and early 2017 the account explicitly stated that it was “Formerly Agree&Amplify.” With the end of the AgreeAndAmp account, FashyFit asked on November 23, 2016 “Do I re-brand back to Agree&Amplify, or stay Fascist Fitness?” Evidently, the decision was to remain as “Fascist Fitness.”. However, this article limits itself to establishing that Patrick Sharp is FashyFit–we will draw out conclusions from this fact elsewhere. FashyFit posted in December 2016 about completing a “12-page research paper” on the Spanish Civil War as part of his final semester. Change ), Fascist Twitter Personality is Onetime Organizer of Georgia State University “White Student Union”, Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights, attracted “almost 275” participants according to, conference participants giving Nazi salutes after a “Hail Trump” speech, his attempt, in mid-2013, to form a White Student Union, in our article about the white power propaganda campaign during Fall Semester 2015 at GSU, “Identitarian” ideas from the European New Right, on the white supremacist website that his father was a “really sort of a race traitor”, a strange online comment from Patrick Sharp writing under his “frozenpie77” moniker, filmed attending the NPI conference in October 2015, Hitler-loving, conspiracy-mongering reality “star” Tila Tequila, Sharp was recorded taking part in an Alt-Right outing to Stone Mountain Park outside Atlanta, the now-canceled “World Peace” comedy show, photo from NPI in 2016 appears to show Patrick Sharp standing behind a table while Spencer (back turned) chats with others, 2016 group shot of white nationalist Identity Evropa members, “black sun” symbol used by esoteric fascists, The Problem that Didn’t Go Away: White Nationalist Activity on Georgia State University Campus, November 2015 to December 2016 | Atlanta Antifascists, “Right-Wing Gentrification Gangs”: White Nationalists and Atlanta Property Development | Atlanta Antifascists, The Racists on Ridgeland Way: Ground Zero for “Alt-Right” Organizing in Atlanta, “Hitler Did Nothing Wrong”: Spalding County Deputy Sheriffs Express Far-Right Allegiance, Right-wing Self-help Guru Jordan Peterson in Atlanta on June 12: Our Response / Some Further Thoughts on Peterson’s “Enforced Monogamy”, Christopher Gibson: Klansman and “Patriot Front” Sympathizer in Dublin, Georgia. On at least two occasions, FashyFit has shown his support for French far-Right organization Action Française by retweeting their materials. The FashyFit account was launched in September 2016, originally posting a mixture of white nationalist, “Alt-Right” and fascist content with strength training/fitness memes. AgreeAndAmp/FashyFit has divorced parents and is knowledgeable about Birmingham, Alabama; he completed college in 2016 and wrote a history paper on the Spanish Civil War; he knows some French; he traveled to the National Policy Institute gathering in Washington, DC in November 2016, and to Germany in December 2016 and January 2017; he participates in Atlanta-area Alt-Right gatherings; he has interacted online with Jared Taylor, Richard Spencer, and Sam Hyde; he has circulated online materials from Action Française and Generation Identitaire; he likes the Pickup Artist subculture, weight training, cigars, and short shorts; he posted a remixed version of the famous “Powerhouse Mechanic” photo to Twitter; the physique pic he posted looks quite similar to Patrick Sharp, and he posted a comment to Twitter suggesting that he may be short; musically, he appreciates Depeche Mode, New Order and George Michael. Patrick Sharp’s fondness for short shorts is well-known. Change ), You are commenting using your Twitter account. Patrick Sharp is best known for his attempt, in mid-2013, to form a White Student Union at Georgia State University (GSU) in Atlanta, where Sharp was starting his bachelor’s degree. The monarchist organization, which has its origins in the anti-Dreyfusards, is little-known in America. The account’s profile stated: “Middle schooler (7th grade) beginning my journey within the Alt-Right and the PUA-sphere.” The acronym “PUA” stands for “Pickup Artist.” The phrase “agree and amplify” (the source of the Twitter account name) is a technique promoted in the pickup artist/“Game” subculture. (Sharp was also filmed attending the NPI conference in October 2015.) For example, Georgia State University newspaper The Signal suggested in a 2013 article that portraying Sharp as “fascist” was excessive, a sign that students had started “to lose patience.” If Patrick Sharp publishes on an explicitly “Fascist” account, however, this implies that calling him “fascist” is completely reasonable.

For example, a screenshot from AgreeAndAmp reposted on the Chateau Heartiste blog (which covers the pickup artist/“Game” scene but also white nationalism) shows an exchange of messages that begins in French before switching to English. However, Patrick Sharp has listed history as one of his key interests online, so such a class may have been attractive to him.

Patrick Sharp has demonstrated his appreciation for Action Française–he has “liked” at least two images posted to a Facebook page for Action Française student militants (one of which seems to glorify violence against antifascists and LGBTQ individuals). Another inspiration is the “Identitarian” organization Generation Identitaire in France, which is the youth wing of the overall Bloc Identitaire movement. Nevertheless, FashyFit appears to be a fan. Before being suspended from Twitter in November 2015, it had grown to approximately 4,000 followers.

Patrick Sharp is shorter than average (see the earlier photo of Sharp with the 4’11” Tila Tequila for reference.) Patrick Sharp has interacted with Sam Hyde on Facebook, for example the comment below which Sharp posted to a longer rant by Hyde. Before the NPI conference, AgreeAndAmp tweeted that he would be there.

( Log Out /  The FashyFit account also has a strange obsession with George Michael, and pretending that this musician was some sort of Alt-Right icon (and not a generous, gay man.) ( Log Out / 

(The Signal should have known this from the beginning however, since Sharp’s “White Student Union” was at first with the racist and fascist Traditionalist Youth Network — a fact The Signal also covered.). “Thank you @jasondemers5, I mean Santa....for stopping by to see Madelyn and Sadie. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: You are commenting using your account. On October 3, 2016, FashyFit boasted of a different “Alt-Right meet-up that just happened in Atlanta” and posted a photo with faces obscured. We do not presently have Patrick Sharp’s complete class schedule and cannot verify that Sharp attended a class where this would be an appropriate final paper (although at least one such class was offered to GSU undergrads during Fall.) Patrick Sharp has left much evidence of his interest in the “Game”/Pickup Artist subculture. On Facebook, Patrick Sharp “liked” a photo of a Generation Identitaire anti-immigrant sticker, suggesting that he is familiar with and supports the movement.

First, establishing that Sharp is responsible for FashyFit (plus an earlier, now-banned Twitter account) provides insight into Sharp’s offline activity. At the 2015 National Policy Institute conference, Patrick Sharp was pictured standing close to Richard Spencer, who was speaking at the podium.

Patrick Sharp attended an Advanced French Conversation and Composition class in his final semester at GSU [1]. On Feb 10, 2017, FashyFit posted an ugly “fashwave” remix of the same photo, redone to incorporate the “black sun” symbol used by esoteric fascists. On December 11, 2016, FashyFit posted a physique pic, although with the head obscured to avoid identification. While FashyFit’s travels were not limited to Germany, Germany is where he spent most of his time. Finally, FashyFit has posted about his love for ‘80s musical acts Depeche Mode and New Order. The page’s neon-color “vaporwave” profile picture incorporated a statue by Arno Breker—a sculptor favored by the Third Reich whose works have been described as “physical images of Nazi ideology”—in addition to a celtic cross, a symbol used by white nationalists. More importantly, when Bloc Identitaire president Fabrice Robert visited the United States in 2013 at the invitation of American Renaissance, Patrick Sharp expressed his appreciation on Facebook.

The claim that the user is in 7th grade is a running joke, clearly contradicted by other profile posts. @NHLonNBCSports” The picture is consistent with Patrick Sharp’s physique. We now set out the extensive evidence that Patrick Sharp is responsible for the “Agree&Amplify” plus “Fascist Fitness” Twitter accounts. Patrick Sharp is FashyFit. Saved searches. Search query Search Twitter. ), We’re spending time establishing that FashyFit is Patrick Sharp for two reasons. The FashyFit account logo also rips off the Planet Fitness trademark, replacing the Planet Fitness “thumbs up” with a hand giving a Nazi salute, replacing the “Judgement Free Zone” motto with “The Judgement Zone.” The larger masthead for the Twitter account replaces a Planet Fitness building with an image of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. Patrick Sharp can be seen smoking cigars in several photos, including one of Sharp and Jared Alexander Huggins (visible in a 2016 group shot of white nationalist Identity Evropa members, and therefore presumably a member) relaxing together in an Atlanta cigar lounge. The photo was soon removed. As documented in a memo obtained by our group, in mid-October 2016 Patrick Sharp discussed an upcoming trip to Germany while chatting with another nationalist in the Georgia State Library Courtyard [2]. During 2015, the profile image for Patrick Sharp’s Facebook account was Lewis Hine’s famous photograph “Power house mechanic working on steam pump” (1920). Remove; In this conversation.
