Alleged Hospital Bombing Plotter Who Died During Arrest Attempt Was Target Of FBI Sting

A Missouri man who allegedly believed he was picking up an IED to bomb a hospital died when the FBI attempted to arrest him, the bureau said Wednesday. Timothy Wilson, 36, had been the subject of a months-long terrorism investigation “which revealed him to be a potentially violent extremist, motivated by racial, religious, and anti government animus,” the FBI said in a statement. He was allegedly planning a bombing and had considered several targets, according to the statement. Though the FBI...

Leak Exposes U.S. Navy Sailor as Once-Prolific Recruiter for Neo-Nazi Group

Hate forums and social media platforms have likely made it easier for atomized white supremacists and neo-Nazis to find like-minded individuals, laying the base for a resurgence in far-right organizing and violence. But that’s come with a price: a lengthy online trail that makes it difficult to stay anonymous. Leaks…Read more...

Seattle authorities used "Red Flag" gun laws to disarm a Neo-Nazi

Kaleb J. Cole (aka "Khimaere") is the 24-year-old leader of the Washington State cell of the Atomwaffen Division, an international network of violent Neo-Nazis. Aside from generally spewing hateful rhetoric, Cole had also been seen participating in Atomwaffen's "Hate Camps," sharpening his rifle skills for more extremist violence. Fortunately, he no longer has access to any guns. From The Daily Beast: [Cole] had his guns seized on Oct. 1st, according to King County Court records. The move came a...

Investigators reportedly served search warrants on Gab and Twitter to find out if an arrested neo-Nazi shared child abuse images on social media

Social media sites Gab and Twitter were handed search warrants last month after a white supremacist was arrested on suspicion of possessing child abuse images. A Colorado man named Wesley Gilreath – who goes by the handle 'National Satanist' – was arrested in August on suspicion of possessing over 100 such images. According to an extensive report on Gilreath by The Daily Beast, investigators want to find out if Gilreath shared the images with other users on Gab or Twitter. Gab and Twitter did ...

The ‘Unbelievable’ Story Of How One Of The Oldest US Nazi Groups Imploded

It’s not uncommon for white nationalist groups to fizzle out or self-destruct in a blaze of infighting. Relinquishing control of their own organization to a black civil rights activist is a new one, though. So goes the bizarre tale of the National Socialist Movement (NSM), a decades-old group that has roots in the American Nazi Party and was recently turned over by longtime commander Jeff Schoep to a black California minister named James Hart Stern. Far-right extremists and those who study th...

Gab Links Up With Fringe Gun Rights Site Amid Backlash To Users’ Rhetoric

Troubles continue to pile up for Gab, the social media platform that pitches itself as the anti-politically correct alternative to Twitter. Dropped by mainstream companies like GoDaddy.com and Stripe after law enforcement discovered that Pittsburgh synagogue shooter Robert Bowers nurtured anti-Semitic hatred on his Gab account, the site has been driven to stranger corners of the online world. Gab recently contracted with 2nd Amendment Processing, a little-known Michigan-based payment processi...

An Atomwaffen Member Sketched A Map To Take The Neo-Nazis Down. What Path Officials Took Is A Mystery.

Some experts and former officials see the case as part of a larger pattern, evidence that federal agencies are understaffed and out of position in confronting the threat of white supremacist terrorism — even as the FBI’s latest report shows a spike in hate crimes for the third straight year. It was a grisly scene inside Apartment 3722 at the Hamptons, a gated community in Tampa, Florida. One body lay face up on the floor, wedged between a wall and an air mattress. A handgun was stuffed in a ...

What We Know About The DC Neo-Nazi Brothers Linked To Pittsburgh Shooter

When Jeffrey “Raph” Clark Jr.’s former schoolmates learned Tuesday that he had been arrested on illegal weapons charges and had expressed support for mass-murdering Jews, they were shaken but unsurprised. They had watched online over the past few years as Jeffrey evolved into a member of the hardcore alt-right, sharing Facebook photos of himself posing with Nazi memorabilia and attending rallies outside the White House with Richard Spencer (above). A few tried to engage and reason with him, b...

A year after Charlottesville, hate marches on

It’s been a year since hundreds of white nationalists, carrying everything from semi-automatic rifles and Nazi symbols to Confederate flags and tiki torches, marched on the grounds of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, chanting “Jews will not replace us” and threatening people of color. The rally, which started on the night of Aug. 11 and continued through the next day, culminated in tragedy — as a self-proclaimed white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of counter protesters, in...

Hate group linked to man charged with Blaze Bernstein’s murder lures angry, affluent youth, expert says

The neo-Nazi group to which 20-year-old accused killer Samuel Woodward has been linked by an investigative news agency tends to target angry, affluent, white men eager to commit violent acts, says a Southern California expert on hate groups and violent extremism. A report by ProPublica on Friday said Woodward belonged to Atomwaffen Division, a neo-Nazi group linked to four slayings over the past eight months. Atomwaffen Division bills itself as a neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic, anti-government, fascist ...

Devon Arthurs shot 2 of his roommates to death and said they were neo-Nazis and so was he, before he converted to Islam.

He said they were anti-Muslim (which, of course, doesn't justify murder). There's also a 4th roommate, Brandon Russell, and the murder investigation uncovered,  we're told, a picture of Timothy McVeigh or his dresser and what are said to be bomb-making ingredients, the NYT reports. Mr. Russell, who was arrested on Sunday in Key Largo, confirmed to law enforcement officials that he was member of Atomwaffen, a neo-Nazi group, and that he had manufactured the “white-cake-like substance,” the author...
