Federal officials on Wednesday arrested several alleged members of a white supremacist group called Atomwaffen Division, including its two leaders, accusing them of plotting to intimidate journalists by calling police to their homes and offices and dropping off threatening fliers.

John Cameron Denton, of Montgomery, Tex., is charged in Alexandria federal court with conspiring to call in fake threats targeting a ProPublica reporter and his office. Police arrived in force at both locations, at one point briefly detaining the reporter.

The article goes on to state the following:

In federal court in Seattle, prosecutors say Kaleb Cole and three others hatched a different intimidation plan: finding out where journalists live and leaving posters at their homes with messages featuring swastikas, weapons and the vague threat that they were being watched.

In a recorded message cited in court records, Cole allegedly said:

“We must simply approach them with nothing but pure aggression. We cannot let them think they are safe.”

“Atomwaffen has forged international alliances with neo-Nazi organizations in Europe and Canada and is known for its slick propaganda videos showing members training at their paramilitary ‘hate camps.'” VICE News reported. “They ascribe to a violent ideology called ‘accelerationism,’ which promotes violence to speed up the collapse of society.

“Earlier this month, local law enforcement in western Washington received a “Situational Information Report” from the FBI, which was obtained and published by the Seattle Times. The report included examples of posters sent by Atomwaffen to residents of the Seattle metropolitan area that contained frightening imagery and language.”

According to VICE, Atomwaffen’s trademark “siege mask” was featured in one image. A figure in the mask is shown standing outside a home with a Molotov cocktail in its hand. The image was captioned, “Your actions have consequences; our patience has its limits.”

All of the posters contain the following message:

“You have been visited by your local Nazis.”
