LA Antifa member Chad Loder sued by woman for falsely claiming she's a criminal convict

"This is 100% false," Patch wrote in the small claims complaint. "I have never had any criminal convictions, nor have I ever been on probation."


An Antifa member from Los Angeles with a history of advocating deadly violence is being sued by one of his victims for defamation after he falsely accusing her in viral tweets that she is a convict of various crimes.

Robin Nicole Patch, a UCLA's masters in public policy alumna, filed a claim against Chad Loder in small claims court in Los Angeles County earlier this year alleging she had lost work opportunities due to his defamatory statement that she is a convicted burglar and vandal.

"Robin Nicole Patch of El Segundo, CA attended the Proud Boys transphobia rally in Los Angeles last Saturday," tweeted Loder on July 8, 2021 along with photographs of the woman. "Robin, who makes "F*ck Antifa" videos, appears still to be on probation from a 2020 conviction for burglary + vandalism."

The Post Millennial has reviewed court documents on Patch and can independently confirm that she was never convicted of burglary or vandalism, or placed on probation. A 2019 domestic dispute case in Los Angeles involving Patch was dismissed. She otherwise has no criminal history in California.  

Los Angeles Antifa member Chad Loder falsely accused Robin Patch of being convicted of burglary and vandalism

Loder, from Redondo Beach, Calif., is a self-described Antifa member and full-time social media activist. He uses Twitter to post doxes on targets—a number of his posts have been removed by Twitter for violating privacy rules—and to call for violence. Several people have filed restraining orders against the 46-year-old ex-tech start-up founder. In a prior investigative report on Loder published by The Post Millennial, we reported on his history of making violent, racist and anti-semitic posts, in addition to being accused by leftist activist women of predatory and creepy behavior.

Patch's complaint filed on Feb. 22 in small claims court seeks the maximum allowance of $5,000 in damages.

"Mr. Loder's defamatory tweets directly caused financial loss for me…" Patch wrote in the legal filing. "I lost income as a direct result of Mr. Loder's slanderous tweets about me."

Loder targeted Patch after she attended a women's rights protest on July 3, 2021, outside the Wi Spa in Los Angeles, where a transgender serial sex offender— still wanted on multiple felonies— allegedly exposed their penis to a young girl and several women in the spa's women's section. Loder had falsely claimed the incident was a transphobic hoax and urged his comrades to confront people at direct actions. Antifa rallied behind the trans sex offender and billed the counter-protest as a direct action to "smash transphobia" and "smash fascism."

At the first Wi Spa demonstration on July 3, 2021, where Patch was present, Antifa militants assaulted street preachers and reporters. Violence again erupted on July 17 when Antifa and far-left protesters attacked police. Among those arrested at the riot was Antifa member Eric "Nina" Cohen," she later was arrested and charged over stabbing a Latino man in the chest and nearly killing him at a direct action outside Los Angeles City Hall.

Chad Loder posts photographs of women and others for his followers to dox and harass.

In Patch's lawsuit, she explicitly denies Loder's claims that she is a criminal convict and has been on probation.

"This is 100% false," Patch wrote in the small claims complaint. "I have never had any criminal convictions, nor have I ever been on probation." Patch wrote in the complaint that Loder blocked her on Twitter so that she could not directly respond to his posts.

"Mr. Loder made two consecutive tweets about me on July 8, 2021, which included personal information such as my (former) place of employment, home city, Instagram posts, LinkedIn profile and results from an outdated background check."

This would not be the first time Loder has targeted and endangered women on Twitter. Also in July 2021, Loder said he was adding the photos of three Latino women to his "archives for use in future doxxing threads."

Yet, in the wake of billionaire Elon Musk acquiring Twitter late last month, Loder was so devastated that he announced he would be "deleting most of [his] tweets" and moving to a new platform where he doesn't "have to constantly deal with death threats and targeted homophobic hate speech." Loder is a heterosexual white male.

According to court documents reviewed by The Post Millennial, at a diversion hearing, Patch's two domestic dispute-related charges were dismissed and her diversion status was terminated in February of 2021.

Multiple accounts had quote tweeted Loder's initial tweet smearing Patch and tagged the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Justice Department, and the Department of Homeland Security.

Patch was also entered into a crowd-sourced database of "suspected violent extremists" on for participating in the initial Wi Spa protest. Loder's two tweets about Patch were used in the webpage profile on her.

Google search results for Patch's full legal name show the link as well as Loder's tweets toward the top of the query's findings.

Patch, a certified project management professional (PMP), said that in September 2021, she was offered a three-month project management contract with a technology consulting company based in Las Vegas. According to the complaint, she signed the onboarding paperwork, but a week later, the company's executive director sent Patch a formal letter rescinding the official job offer, stating that her "adverse online reputation" could "negatively impact the standing" of the company" and "unfortunately that is a risk we cannot take."

"As a direct result of Mr. Loder's negligence I lost a work contract with monetary value," Patch, a single mother, wrote in the conclusion of the small claims filing. "Mr. Loder acted with malicious intent, and deliberately did not update the third-party background check he obtained or take the time to look up my alleged criminal record from a reputable database," she concluded.

Patch told The Post Millennial that Loder has been avoiding getting served notice of the suit for months. According to an Instagram post on March 24 publicly announcing the lawsuit, Patch said Loder has evaded service at least six times now, but she is still proceeding with the case regardless.

Patch's filing of the lawsuit could be dangerous due to Loder's erratic, obsessive behavior and history of support for violent extremism. Loder has called for mass killings and gave online instructions on how to use explosive devices. "F*ck it, behead them all," Loder even tweeted in May 2020. In November that year, he expressed gratitude to mass murderer Christopher Dorner in a now-deleted tweet.

Despite the possible threat of danger and violence, Patch says she isn't afraid. "I am quite familiar with [Antifa] violence. I experienced it firsthand twice at the Wi spa protests," she says. "As far as I'm concerned, Chad is a p—y. And so are the other Antifa that try to intimidate me. I have no respect for people that cover their faces and operate on a mob mentality."

After a hearing date for Patch's case against Loder was scheduled for April 14, the judge issued a continuance and the next court date is June 28. Patch plans to show the judge that Loder has evaded formal service for months.
