Allen Wesley Pucket
Allen Wesley Pucket is a far-right preacher who self-identifies as a "confrontational evangelist". Originally from Ulysses, Kansas, Pucket moved to Oregon at some point where he first lived in Tillamook County (ref) and then moved to Portland no later than 2017.
As with many individuals of this alignment, he seems to enjoy being at the forefront of whatever the worst possible moral position is on any significant political issue and inspiring adherents of that position to ever-greater extremism on behalf of that position. He is particularly known for implicit threats of violence against groups that actively support peaceful coexistence (ref).
