USA - 'Rise Above' Nazis Arrested

Three members of the Neo Nazi 'Rise Above' Movement have been arrested in California, with a fourth sought.

The founder of the violent white supremacist gang and two others travelled to Europe to celebrate Adolf Hitler’s birthday in spring 2018, not only to celebrate, but also to meet with European white supremacist groups, prosecutors said in a criminal complaint this week.

The four are charged with a series of violent attacks during events in Huntington Beach, Berkeley and San Bernardino, California, in 2017.

Prosecutors said the four men used the internet to coordinate combat training, recruit members and organize riots.

U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna said in a statement ...
Every American has the right to peacefully organize, march and protest in support of their beliefs, but no one has the right to violently assault their political opponents.
The arrests and charges are the second batch filed this month against members of RAM, a violent white supremacist group that practices mixed martial arts and has been accused of showing up for rallies prepared to attack people. They have been described as the 'Nazi Fight Club'.

They are unable to deny their Nazi support - Founder and Leader Robert Rundo was filmed reciting the “14 Words” pledge popular in white supremacist circles.

The charges stem from a “Make America Great Again” rally on March 25, 2017, in Huntington Beach. The FBI said RAM members split from the main rally and attacked counter-protesters, and attacked a number of people, including two journalists. The attacks were celebrated online, with members posting photos of themselves attacking people.

They have been denied bail.
