New Jersey European Heritage Association

Small, New Jersey-based white supremacist group created in 2018 espousing racism, anti-Semitism, and intolerance under the guise of saving white Europeans from imminent extinction. Particularly active in and around Princeton.

Patriot Front

A white supremacist group whose members maintain that their ancestors conquered America and bequeathed it to them alone. They define themselves as American fascists or nationalists who are focused on preserving the country’s identity as a European-American identity. Split-off from Vanguard America in 2017, they embrace Americana and use the American flag during demonstrations and often wear U.S. flag-themed masks or bandanas.

American Identity Movement

An alt-right white supremacist group that began in 2019 as a rebranding of Identity Evropa, one of the largest groups within the alt-right segment of the white supremacist movement. It’s a brand of white supremacy rife with racism, anti-Semitism, and homophobia, but the group attempts to project an image of Americana. It is focused on the preservation of “white American culture” and promoting white European identity; uses the slogan “You will not replace us.” Campus activism is a priority.

Feuerkrieg Division

Small international neo-Nazi group established in 2018 that advocates for a race war and holds some of the white supremacist movement’s most extreme views. It calls for violence against their perceived enemies and destruction of “the system,” or society at large, which they believe is controlled by the Jews.

Daily Stormer Book Club

Small, localized crews of young white men who follow and support Andrew Anglin and his neo-Nazi website, The Daily Stormer, launched in 2013. Members present themselves as American nationalists and are part of the alt-right segment of the white supremacist movement.

Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (LWK)

One of largest and most active of the 35-40 groups that make up the organized Klan movement in the United States. Like the rest of the stagnant Klan movement, the LWK currently operates in the shadows of segments of the white supremacist movement that have moved on from the outdated, stigmatized Klan robes and burning crosses. LWK members follow a version of traditional Klan ideology infused with neo-Nazi beliefs. In addition to being anti-black, anti-immigration, anti-Muslim, and homophobic, they are also virulently anti-Semitic.

The Base

Small, militant neo-Nazi organization that emerged in 2018. Members portray themselves as vigilante soldiers defending the “European race” against a broken “system” infected by Jewish values. Its mission is to prepare for an impending race war.
