In Summer 2020, Alex Vriend began travelling and networking within the neo-fascist Diagolon movement under the name "The Ferryman's Toll." The Plaid Army streamers, and their Diagolon community, regularly push far-right and conspiracy content and detail their fantasies of an inevitable and bloody revolution.

Diagolon is increasingly becoming a militia network. Their goals are ultimately fascist: to use violence to take power and strip rights away from people who do not meet their purity tests based on ideology, race, and gender. With power or permission, they would execute their perceived enemies. Their motto is "gun or rope."

Vriend has become one of the more outspoken and influential members of this growing national network, and runs many of their chat rooms. Like many of Diagolon's supporters, he is rarely shy about pushing antisemitism and, more recently, outright Holocaust denial. His violent rhetoric was one of the reasons a PPC rally in December was cancelled.
