A Southwest-based neo-Nazi organization is now active offline throughout the United States and Canada while also running a website and a social media account. The founder explained that his new organization was inspired by another European neo-Nazi organization.
The group's ideology connects to a late 19th century German ethno-nationalist movement that focuses on Germanic racial superiority and the idea of a Germanic national rebirth. The group combines these ideals with activist practices, including hanging posters and banner drops, to push its agenda. The organization has promoted its antisemitic and neo-Nazi ideology in cities across the United States and several Canadian provinces.
The group's leader explains that he does not believe in masking the group's ideology with the use of patriotic and nationalist iconography to gain members as the organization only wants to recruit national socialists who are comfortable being open about their worldview.
The group has been active in various cities within the Southwest, Midwest, and the Southern regions of the U.S. including on university campuses in the Southern and Southwestern regions.
In Canada, the group has hung posters throughout cities within the Eastern provinces of Canada including on some college campuses. The group's leader explains that he was in connection with Canadian supporters before the formal establishment of the organization.
