A July 6 Letter to a neo-Nazi, white supremacist leader of a domestic terrorist group requesting an interview:
Dear Mr. XXXXX:
This is investigative journalist Nate Thayer. I am writing a follow up article to my previous profile on you as a national leader of the Atomwaffen Division domestic terrorist organization and former leader of the white supremacist Vanguard America and Identity Europa state chapters in Arizona, scheduled to be published tomorrow, Sunday July 7, 2019.
As you know, my previous article detailed how you falsely portray yourself as a combat veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. New documentation obtained adds further details that you were rejected as unfit to serve in the U.S. uniformed military services because of your mental health issues, failure to meet minimum physical aptitude requirements, and abuse of illegal narcotics, according to documents and sources.
If you have any issue with these documented characterizations, I would encourage and welcome your comment or any documentation that would show otherwise. In particular, I am requesting you provide your unexpurgated DD-214 military service records (of which I have already obtained a copy) which show you were abruptly expelled from the Arizona National Guard less than 30 days after enlisting, without ever undergoing any military training or deployment, despite your claims to be a combat veteran of Afghanistan who suffers from PTSD a a result of your experiences as an U.S. Army infantryman, claims that U.S. Army records show are not true.
I remain at this email or 443-225-1498. I am happy to speak to you on whatever level of attribution you feel comfortable in order to ensure that my facts are not only correct, but respect the nuances of your particular situation.
In addition, my research has uncovered several hundred more of your online discussions regarding your leadership, endorsement, and participation in a recognized U.S. domestic terrorist group, the Atomwaffen Division, and your advocacy for mass violent terror attacks targeting ethnic and religious groups. These include detailed conversations of your planning terror attacks and photographic evidence of your possession of, according to Arizona and federal law, illegally manufactured weapons and stockpiling ammunition to carry out these attacks.
I would encourage you to comment whether these terrorist attacks targeting houses of worship and ethnic and religious groups you say you are organizing remain your current intentions.
In addition, I have interviewed numerous of your social circle, including those who attended high school, university, and were members of your private fraternities, including the Eagle Scouts, your Mormon church, and JROTC.
Several expressed concerns about your mental stability and what they detailed as what they perceived as your having issues with your own sexual identity.
I would be most grateful if you would clarify how you self identify yourself sexually. Normally, I would never inquire on these sort of topics, but you, as a legitimate public figure as a leader of a domestic terror political group, have taken an aggressive public stance condemning homosexual activity and calling for their mass murder, while, according to your own obtained social media chat logs and interviews with your social circle in Arizona and elsewhere, you are currently engaging in homosexual activity.
In addition, I have interviewed former non-white women who claim to have been in intimate relationships with you who have detailed relationships which seem to be in contradiction to your white nationalist publicly stated political beliefs, which, in your own words, you call for the mass violent murder of “race mixers.”.
I would be very interested in hearing your side of the story and how your public political stances condemning non-heterosexual and inter racial relationships and activity comport with your personal conduct.
In addition, I have interviewed social acquaintances and political comrades of yours who contend they have participated in or witnessed your use of illegal narcotics, including methamphetamine and other synthetic pharmaceuticals, in addition to abusing alcohol, which, according to these sources, contribute to or are parcel to what they characterize as your mental instability. Your own intercepted social media chat logs confirm that you engage in the illegal use of narcotics.
These are all serious allegations.
I very much want to ensure my facts are correct and encourage you to get back to me at this email or 443-225-1498 prior to the scheduled publication time of this article at 12 noon EDT Sunday July 7, 2019
