That reporting continues on Nov. 20 with “Documenting Hate: New American Nazis” — a new documentary investigating Atomwaffen Division, a neo-Nazi group that calls for racially motivated, “lone-wolf” terror attacks like the one in Pittsburgh.

In the above excerpt from the documentary, correspondent A.C. Thompson and reporter Ali Winston talk with a former member of the group, who sheds light on its terrorist objectives.

“Atomwaffen Division, it’s a Nazi extremist group seeking to spread terror. The main thing is lone-wolf activity,” says the former Atomwaffen member, who asks Thompson to call him John and disguise his voice.

The investigation goes on to show how the neo-Nazi group has sought to draw from the U.S. military, and how it has even run “hate camps” offering military-style training across the U.S..
