Exclusive: Winnipeg car ramming suspect identified as Antifa member

The suspect arrested over the car-ramming attack against the "Freedom Convoy" protesters in Winnipeg, Canada is an Antifa member with a long history of far-left militantism in Manitoba. David Alexander Zegarac, 42, of Headingley, Man., allegedly sped off to try and escape after the attack on Feb. 4, 2022, which injured four people. He ran multiple lights and resisted arrest when he was finally caught around 40 minutes later.

Zegarac was the frontman of the antifa punk band Brat Attack until the record label dropped the group because of multiple accusations of sexual assault against Zegarac in 2015. One of the accusers said she was only 13 when he groomed her and raped her. [Link: https://web.archive.org/web/20150711070009/https://gaslight-retreat.tumblr.com/post/122738519912/trigger-warning]

Zegarac's music is extremely political, features violent themes and was popular with the local antifa anarchist punk scene in Manitoba and other parts of Canada. He performed in multiple other short-lived antifa bands as well. On Deviant Art, he posted antifa art under the username, "DaveyBrat." One drawing shows an antifa member in black bloc hurling a firebomb. Zegarac's YouTube channel features his music and performances. A song from seven years ago is called, "Bash the Fash" and the video features the Antifa black and red flag logo. [Link:

With the revelation of Zegarac's identity and the emergence of his deep roots in Canada's antifa punk scene, antifa supporters who know him are going into damage control. Winnipeg Punks, whose current avatar on Facebook is a crossed out "convoy," released a statement saying Zegerac was part of Antifa and Anti-Racist Action (another militant far-left, antifa group), but that he was a "poser" and was "despised." [Link: https://archive.is/RCOBI]

Zegarac has been charged with four counts of assault with a weapon, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and dangerous operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm. A Winnipeg police spokesman said in a news conference the day after the attack that they couldn't speak to the driver's motivations.

Andy Ngo's Antifa Attacker Questioned at Portland Criminal Trial

PORTLAND — In Oregon v. John Colin Hacker, where Portland Antifa member John Hacker was charged with third-degree robbery of me over three and a half years earlier, he waived his right to remain silent to testify. During the trial on Nov,. 15, 2022, in which I also testified in person, Antifa threatened to find and kill me. Judge Eric L. Dahlin ruled that even though I was victimized and was "blameless," he could not find that Hacker was guilty of third-degree robbery.

Ngo: 'Antifa almost killed me — but I won’t stop reporting their dangerous deeds'

The New York Post has published the previously unreleased surveillance video of Antifa hunting me down and beating me when I returned to Portland in May 2021. The Portland Police did not interview those identified as participants that night. The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office under Mike Schmidt did not press any charges. Antifa falsely claimed I faked the incident. https://nypost.com/2022/02/06/antifa-almost-killed-me-but-i-wont-stop-reporting-their-dangerous-deeds/

Breaking: Man accused of trying to bomb area next to Washington state Tesla store identified

A 44-year-old Seattle-area man has been identified as the suspect in Friday's violent arson attack and bomb threat next to a Tesla property in Lynnwood, Wash. that led to an hours-long standoff finally ended by a SWAT team unit. The arson attack and bomb threat followed promises the same day by Twitter Antifa accounts to burn down Tesla properties as revenge against Elon Musk for suspending their accounts.

"AshRedacted" was a Portland Antifa account that organized and promoted violent direct actions

Michael Paul Hargett allegedly threatened a business owner with a screwdriver at a business next to a Tesla store on Nov. 25 before threatening responding police with a crowbar. According to the Lynnwood Police Department, Hargett said he was armed with a handgun. An attempt to tase the suspect failed. Police say he barricaded himself in a room and moved propane and acetylene tanks in position, threatening to blow up the area.

During the attack, Hargett allegedly smashed windows open so he could hurl projectiles at police. Once the suspect started a fire, a mobilized SWAT unit doused the flames with a fire hose before breaching the building by using a robot. Police evacuated the area during the stand off that lasted nearly five hours. 

Hargett was charged with felony second-degree assault, felony second-degree arson, felony first-degree malicious mischief of a business, felony theft of a motor vehicle and misdemeanor obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

The incident came at a tense time for Tesla as earlier the same day, a prominent Portland Antifa account that organized multiple violent direct actions had called for attacks on Tesla properties

"The fascist Elon Musk has chosen his side in history aligning with fascists and white supremacy so tonight we are calling for actions across the so-called 'US' at every local Tesla dealership," read the flyer shared by "@AshRedacted." The flyer listed Portland's Tesla store address and the account followed up with addresses of Tesla locations across the country. The account was later suspended following reporting by this journalist.

Though police have not stated a possible political motive for Friday's incident next to a Tesla store, Antifa accounts nonetheless praised the attack.

"Someone in Lynnwood, WA went to the Tesla service center last night and (allegedly) set it on fire only after (allegedly) threatening the pigs with a crowbar and getting tased. They had to call in swat. F—kin' legend," tweeted Rose City Antifa member, "@Redwood_PDX.

But not every Antifa account was happy that calls for attacks were announced early on Twitter. 

"You do not need to announce a target before hitting it. In fact you should explicitly not do that," wrote Portland Antifa account, "@dennisispeasant.

"If the goal is the immediate gains from an attack I shouldn’t know about it until after it happens and I should never know who did it...We are massively underpowered compared to our enemies and thus we must be f—ng sneaky."

Seattle-area reporter Jonathan Choe was outside the stand-off last Friday night. 

"When I arrived I saw multiple streets blocked off and the SWAT team was on scene trying to negotiate with a man who barricaded himself into an auto body shop," Choe said. "With multiple reports of threats by Antifa and far-left activists against Tesla, especially in the Pacific Northwest, I asked if this situation had anything to do with that. The officer said at the time he couldn’t confirm or deny anything since it was too early."

At the bail hearing for the suspect on Monday afternoon in Snohomish County, the judge said Hargett has another open criminal case for burglary. State prosecutors requested bail be increased from $50,000 to $100,000, but that was denied by the judge. Hargett is still currently in the county jail.

Breaking: Portland Antifa riot arrestee charged over child sex abuse and making child porn

Portland Antifa riot arrestee William David Kerr has been arrested and charged with multiple felonies related to sexually abusing a child and making child porn. The 35-year-old Portlander was arrested by Gresham Police on Nov. 2 and charged with felony first-degree sexual abuse, felony using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct, and two charges of fourth-degree assault.

Kerr is a career criminal and convicted felon who was arrested at a violent Antifa riot in 2016 in downtown Portland after Donald Trump was announced as the presidential election winner against Hillary Clinton. For three days, Antifa and far-left rioters smashed up businesses and cars, and also started fires across the city. Kerr's second-degree disorderly conduct charge over the riot was quickly dropped by prosecutors.

It is unknown if he returned to rioting in 2020, but on his social media, he shared a video in August 2020 defending rioting and looting.

William Kerr has a long criminal history in the Portland area

Kerr has a long criminal history in Oregon. In 2006, he was convicted of attempting to commit both a Class A and Class B felony over a violent robbery case. In March last year, he was arrested and charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, attempted murder, unlawful use of a weapon, and other felony charges. The attempted murder and attempt to commit a Class A felony charges were dropped by the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office under DA Mike Schmidt while a judge dismissed the remaining felony charges.

In September, a protection order case against Kerr was opened for a minor.

Kerr's child sex abuse case echoes another recent case of Portland Antifa riot arrestee, Aubrey Ryan Quinn-Ward, who was arrested and charged following a child sex sting in a neighboring county.

This is a developing story. Gresham Police has been reached for comment.
