On June 2 a group of young nationalist gamers called Roblox Front, published the Discord chats of Anti-Fascist Front of Roblox (AFFoR), a teenaged, anti-White extremist gaming group. The bold move exposed not only the AFFoR’s operations in the online gaming world of Roblox, but also a much darker reality about teenagers and anti-White extremism. The William McKinley Institute (WMKI) spoke with the young gamer who infiltrated the group for more details about Roblox Front and their efforts fighting the culture war that has spilled over into the online world of video games.
The teen, who will remain anonymous, told WMKI that Roblox Front was not an actual organization, but a group of young teen-aged gaming enthusiasts who liked to “LARP” as Patriot Front on Roblox and other popular video games. While Roblox Front was started as a joke, those teenagers who participate in online gaming with the group look up to Patriot Front. Roblox Front participants are now seeking to promote among other young gamers values of patriotism, identity, and healthy living.
Over the last couple of weeks, activists have investigated a "anti-fascist" Roblox group recruiting children and teens, grooming them as online footsoldiers for the opposition, pushing radical and more extreme ideologies to impressionable minors.

According to the AFFoR infiltrator there are numerous networks of politically minded youth in today’s online gaming world. AFFoR was known not only among Roblox Front fans, but also among alternative networks of socially conservative and anti-communist gaming groups. While other groups opposed AFFoR, their tactic of “trolling” to counter anarcho-communist gamers were largely ineffective at thwarting AFFoR’s efforts. Upon witnessing the repeated failures of other gamers to successfully disrupt AFFoR, Roblox Front gamers decided to take action to infiltrate and disrupt the anti-White group.
Several attempts were initially made by Roblox Front to gain access to the AFFoR’s Discord group, which had an invite link listed on the group’s Roblox account. Since the infiltration, this link has been removed, and it is unknown if the Discord server was deleted following its publication. Once an individual used the invite link they were taken to a channel on the server where they were required to speak with a moderator in order to gain access. The first several attempts were unsuccessful because the infiltrators failed to properly mimic the jargon and behavior of the anti-White extremists.
The group was finally granted access to the majority of the channels. The infiltrator proceeded to download the contents of the channels to which they had access and published them on several social media accounts. The leaks revealed a number of disturbing things about AFFoR and their operations.
AFFoR appears to be run by another group of teenagers who have been successfully indoctrinated into Judeo-Capitalist sponsored anti-White extremism. One channel was established for AFFoR members to identify and engage in coordinated mass flagging of users they perceived of as pro-White. Another channel was established for posting group avatar photos of AFFoR members’ Roblox sessions.
Other aspects of the AFFoR Discord were much more disturbing. The Discord server owner appears to be a German high school student who goes by the username ComradeDer. ComradeDer claimed to have tried to kill himself three times because of school, but that no one cared. The disturbed student also complained that ChatGPT wouldn’t tell him how to make a bomb out of kitchen supplies. At one point he told the user Excentric to put a pipe bomb in the mailbox of a pro-White student at his school and on another occasion told other users he wished someone would blow up his school.
ComradeDer has also claimed to have participated in an anti-White “antifa” extremist protest in Zürich last year. This fact, if true, demonstrates how mentally disturbed teenagers are being groomed into anti-White extremist ideologies and then spreading them online to others. While the capitalist German government recently arrested the Alternative for Germany (AfD) regional leader for advocating that Germans be put first in regards to political rights, teenagers like ComradeDer openly advocate bombing their own school and try to convince their friends to engage in similar activities.
AFFoR sells various clothing items for player’s characters on their Roblox store that includes hoodies with anti-White terrorist symbols such as the Iron Front and anarcho-communist “Antifa” flags. The sale of these items alone violates Roblox’s community standards against terrorism and violent extremism. WMKI reached out to the Roblox corporation’s Customer Support’s Safety Team to ask about the company’s policies on anti-White extremism and if they intended to allow AFFoR to continue using their platform. In return, we received an indirect response to our questions from a representative named “Joel” whose reply appeared to be either automated or pre-scripted. Suspecting that “Joel” was not a real person, we followed up again asking if there was someone at the company willing to speak with us about the specific issues. At the time of this publication we have still not received a reply.
While writing this story we were informed that Roblox corporation banned most, if not all, accounts of Roblox Front. The group believes that this was done in retaliation by the company for exposing AFFoR.
WMKI has decided to open a new section of our website to host the leaked Discord chats of anti-White extremist groups. We believe it is important for anti-White extremist researchers to have access to these files to better understand and combat anti-White hatred. Furthermore, we would like to make available the evidence of potential criminal conspiracies to victims and their families who may seek justice following attacks by such depraved individuals.
