Fuck Around and Find Out
Dean Daniel Van Zandt Jr. came on our radar after when he began posting doxx’s of alleged anti-fascists. When we reached out to those targeted, we found that his intelligence was very far off, usually linking things together because of one or two small correlations. Dean even went so far as to link an anonymous anti-fascist Twitter account to a woman named Rosa because the Twitter account’s name was Rosa (which is essentially the leftist equivalent of John Doe)
Like we’ve said before though, the inaccuracy of fascist doxx’s is a function.
It doesn't matter if they get it wrong. They're still terrorizing someone who probably doesn't like them/has an identity they hate and it weaponizes our empathy as leverage to make us stop exposing them and disrupting their organizing.

Dean has used several Twitter accounts to disseminate these doxx’s but ran up against the wall of the right’s woefully bad infrastructure for distributing this sort of information and him not knowing Twitter’s terms of service.
Here’s Dean’s @DJPOYB account, which features prominent Proud Boy symbolism. “POYB” is an acronym popular among Proud Boys that stands for “Proud Of Your Boy”. Dean’s Twitter bio features the Proud Boy loyalty oath “I’m a proud Western chauvinist, I refuse to apologize for creating the modern world.”
Dean’s other Twitter account, @BackwoodHeathen, is almost identical to @DJPOYB.
However, @BackwoodHeathen didn’t always look this way. Here is an earlier version on this account that states that Dean is an “Asatruar” and that he does not “feel guilt of [his] race or thier culture.” Ásatrú is a Norse neopagan religion that has been largely hijacked by white supremacists who want to feel like epic Vikings.
Doxxing The Doxxer
Dean likes to pretend that he is not the Zodiak Doxxer, but he blew his cover when he setup the Zodiak Doxxer wordpress blog to host all of his doxx’s (which we got taken down within 24 hours). When you hover over the author of the posts “DinoProud”, you see the URL suffix “backwoodsheathen004” come up. Dean likely setup the WordPress account as “backwoodsheathen004”, then realized it would connect the Zodiak Doxxer and himself, and changed it to DinoProud, not realizing the URL syntax would remain the same.
The gibberish on this page is based on the Zodiac Killer who mailed notes about himself and his murders that were written in codes called ciphers to newspapers. Most of the Zodiac Killer’s ciphers have not been decoded to this day. Dean’s cipher’s however, are technically the simplest cipher’s possible – Caesar’s ciphers, in which each letter is offset by a number. The above cipher is offset by +14 and reads:
Welcome to my Domain, This is where Commie anonymity comes to die For every community they burn for every life they ruin with false claims of nazi I will expose them The commies think they can hide in the crevices of the web and social media that time is over Starting today I will be dropping names family numbers addresses and places of work After all whats good for the goose is good for the gander I will keep posting until all commie sects are fully and thoroughly DOXXED you should have seem this coming and you should have stopped your bullshit but you didnt and now is time for me to rise
Dean refers to the people he doxx’s as “slaves”, which is what the Zodiac Killer referred to the people he murdered. Dean is threatening violence.
“I like killing people because it is so much fun it is more fun than killing wild game in the forrest because man is the most dangeroue anamal of all to kill something gives me the most thrilling experence it is even better than getting your rocks off with a girl the best part of it is thae when I die I will be reborn in paradice and the i have killed will become my slavesI will not give you my name because you will try to sloi down or atop my collectiog of slaves for my afterlife ebeorietemethhpiti”
-The solution to Zodiac Killer’s 408-symbol cipher.
Dean Van Zandt Jr. was arrested July of last year on suspicion of second-degree assault-strangulation. He also has charges for criminal harassment, and driving while intoxicated. While Dean is innocent until proven guilty and police should be not be trusted blindly, we feel this is worth noting.
Dean attempted to join the Neo-Nazi organization American Guard at some point last year. It’s unknown whether he became fully initiated or not.
Dean is in good company with his recruit Russell Bergeron.
A Danger to the Kink Community
Dean Van Zandt is active in the Southern Colorado Kink community and runs the Kik group chat PuebloBDS under the name Dan Bluetooth. If you know anyone in the kink community, especially in or around Pueblo, please let them know about this danger to the community.
Dean is also on FetLife
A Boomer at Heart
Dean’s other social media was very easy to find. His main Instagram is full of poorly cropped anti-antifa memes.
The symbol on the skull is a Valknut, a symbol connected to Norse mythology that is very frequently used by white supremacist heathens, but not exclusively.
When Dean isn’t posting bad doxx’s and posting cropped boomer memes, he’s spamming Twitter to gain followers and Retweeting our good friend and Nazi collaborator Louie Huey.
Ya blew it, Dean.
Dean has changed his Twitter handle numerous times since we exposed him. He is currently using the handle @7lives4country.
