Main Evidence[1]:

The above June 9 post of a man at a firing range was followed by a discussion in the comments. "S.H." commented, "you probably think the only good fag is a dead fag....u guys should line up fags curb stomp them by their faggot parades." A.A. replied, "damn fuckin right I do" and a conversation as to how this should take place continued.

 

On May 23, 2019, A.A. posted a photo, accompanied by the text "Tools of the trade," showing a pistol, a knife, and a copy of The Turner Diaries.[2]

On April 2, 2019, A.A. again referenced The Turner Diaries, with a meme showing Nazi soldiers kicking down a door and the text "Knock Knock White Traitor, It's The Day Of The Rope."[3] He wrote on the post: "Traitors to the front of the line."

On June 13, 2018, A.A. posted a photo of a pistol and a knife on a Nazi flag along with white supremacist literature, including The Turner Diaries, George Lincoln Rockwell's This Time The World, James Mason's Siege,[4]  and other books. On this too A.A. wrote "Tools of the trade."

On January 18 and 19, 2018, A.A. posted photos of what appears to be a Glock 19 with a Texas State Flag Rear Slide Cover Plate. In the January 18, 2018 post he wrote, "You never know when the fuckin niggers are gonna chimp out." In the January 19, 2018 image, which included the text "the moment you realize that being a nigger or a faggot is bad for your health," he wrote: "Add kikes and traitors to the list and we're good to go."

A January 21, 2018 post included a photo of a noose on a banner featuring Stormfront's "White Pride World Wide" logo, with the text "This noose needs a nigger."

In an April 15, 2018 post, A.A. wrote: "You got just one round left and on the ground you got one wounded nigger and one wounded kike. What do you do?" The comments included advice such as "Lay their heads on top of each other and shoot at close range 2 for 1" and "Beat the wounded nigger and the wounded kike to death", to which A.A. replied "[name redacted], as long as you finish the job that's all that matters" and "[name redacted], I'd step up to the plate to get that job done brother."

A March 3, 2019 post included an image showing a rainbow flag peeled back to reveal a caricature of a Jew, on which A.A. wrote: "Who is behind faggot degeneracy? That's right, the fuckin kikes."

A February 7, 2018 featured an image of Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof against the backdrop of Stormfront's White Pride World Wide logo, with the text "At least I did something." A.A. wrote on his post: "Fuck nigger history month, this is month is for celebrated real heroes."

[2] The 1978 novel by the known American white supremacist, neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic author and political commentator William Pierce.

[3] The Day of the Rope, marked by white supremacists on August 1, is from The Turner Diaries, where it is described as violent attacks and public executions of "race traitors" to the white European race – for example, "White women who were married to or living with Blacks, with Jews, or with other non-White males."

[4] Siege, by Denver-based neo-Nazi James Mason, is a collection of newsletters Mason wrote in the 1980s in collaboration with sect leader and mass murderer Charles Manson. With a focus on Holocaust denial and antisemitic and anti-gay themes, it calls for the establishment of a network of decentralized terror cells and for taking up arms against the "system." The book is one of the main inspirations for Atomwaffen Division, which has promoted it and Mason's ideas as "Siege Culture."
