“I wake up in the morning with murder on my mind”–Pfc Corwyn Storm Carver, U.S. Army 1st Armored Division, 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery, Headquarters Battery at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas
As president Donald Trump touches down in El Paso, Texas after an armed domestic terrorist murdered 22 people this week, there is another armed, avowed white supremacist domestic terrorist in El Paso who is a member of a terror group which vows to carry out mass shootings of civilians and the United States Army has concluded abides by “U.S. Army rules.”
U.S. Army Private First Class Corwyn Storm Carver, 22, is an ideological leader of the neo-Nazi, white supremacist terror organization, the Atomwaffen Division, and currently attached to the 1st Armored Division, 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery, Headquarters Battery at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas.
“I wake up in the morning with murder on my mind” wrote Army Pfc Carver in March of 2019.
Carver has called for the extermination of Jews, is an avowed Nazi who pledged allegiance to Adolph Hitler, is a devotee of mass murderer Charles Manson, and a follower of an extremist Satanic sect that advocates human sacrifice and apocalyptic destruction of all institutions of society.
In addition, Pfc Carver has called for the armed overthrow of the United States government to be replaced by an all-white Aryan ethno-state. Carver has publicly supported recent terrorist attacks, including that of Dylan Roof, who murdered 9 elderly black church parishioners in South Carolina in June, 2015.
“Because of the conditions we find ourselves in, the fascist worldview has to be applied through the creation of a new nation in the United States,” Carver said in a January 2017 fascist radio podcast interview, using his Atomwaffen Division alias “Vass”.
Carver, 22, of Chesapeake, Virginia joined the Atomwaffen Division in 2016, and, according to U.S. military documents, enlisted in the U.S. army on April 11, 2017, since rising to become one of the terror groups leaders.
“We’re Manson’s retribution my dude,” Carver wrote on January 28, 2018 to other Atomwaffen Division members on one of the group’s secret online discussion boards they use to communicate with one another.
Weeks earlier, when Manson died in prison on November 19, 2017, Carver mourned the passing of “an American Hero” and “a prophet of our time.”
“Charlie was more than a man. For us, those who have taken up his dissident banner, Manson was an idea. Nothing will kill Charlie truly,” Carver wrote in an eulogy in December 2017 on the online fascist forum Universal Order. “Manson taught us to free our minds and return to our nature . Manson taught us to be real men and women, fighting for the kind of Truth that still exists. Manson taught Completeness, Order and Balance.” Carver wrote, using his Atomwaffen Division alias “Vass.”
Carver vowed that Manson’s “guidance will remain our North Star. Shining brightly in anticipation of a new Dawn.” He concluded “Hail Charles Manson!”
The U.S. Army command and the Criminal Investigative Division at Ft Bliss in El Paso ordered an investigation after Carver’s terrorist affiliation was publicly revealed in April 2019. see
In May, Lt. Col. Crystal Boring, a spokeswoman for the 1st Armored Division, confirmed Carver’s active-duty status but said military policy prevented her from releasing further details while an investigation is being conducted.
“The Army does not tolerate racism, extremism, or hatred in our ranks,” Boring said. “When an individual enters into the Army, they are held to the high moral and ethical standards articulated as the Army Values. We uphold those same standards.”
In June, the Ft. Bliss Army command determined that Carver was not affiliated with the Atomwaffen Division terror group.
The U.S. Army spokesperson at Ft Bliss released a statement, after numerous media requests, saying “The command has looked into this matter and concluded that Pfc. Corwyn S. Carver does not have ties with the neo-Nazi terror group Atomwaffen Division. Pfc Carver is still currently serving as an active duty soldier in the 1st Armored Division. We do not comment or disclose the circumstances concerning any investigative, administrative, or disciplinary action. We do not tolerate any behavior that is contrary to good order, discipline, and Army values.”
When told this week of the U.S. Army conclusion that Carver “does not have ties with the Atomwaffen Division”, a recently former member of the Nazi group responded in an email “That is a bunch of bullcrap.”
According to Atomwaffen Division leaders themselves, and Carver’s own numerous public postings, the U.S. Army is wrong.
“Vass is Virginia chapter emeritus,” wrote another leader of Atomwaffen Division from Colorado who uses the name ‘Ryan’ in January 2018. Vass is Carver’s Atomwaffen Division alias, according to several former members of the terror group.
In an email exchange this week after the El Paso mass murder, Ryan wrote from his home in Colorado “El Paso guy was a white nationalist Trump Lover, and I believe that the shooting was meant to show his anger with Mexicans, though he only shot 6 Mexicans in total, apparently. He should’ve chosen a much better target. Abbie Hoffman once said
‘Every rock or molotov cocktail thrown should make a very obvious political point. Random violence produces random propaganda results. Why waste even a rock?’ and I agree. Shooting up a random Wal-Mart to show anger at Mexicans is nonsensical. If he was gonna do something like that, he should’ve done what Roof did, and picked a Mexican community center, i.e. a Church, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, etc.”
“He’s in AIT (Advanced Individual Training). He can’t go off post yet,” wrote another Atomwaffen Division member using the name ‘Snow’, referring to Pfc Carver. “If he doesn’t get stationed in Virginia he won’t be there often, Ryan.”
“I’d still say that Vass is in the Virginia chapter,” replied Ryan.
After completing 13 weeks of U.S. army basic training in the summer of 2017, Carver was sent to Fort Sam Houston in Texas for advanced training as a combat medic. After completing the training in Houston, he was then sent to the Ist Armored Division, 27th Forward Artillery Battalion, Headquarters Battery at Ft Bliss near El Paso, Texas.
Since, he has been deployed at least once to Camp Buehring in Northern Kuwait.
While in Houston, he joined the Texas cell of the Atomwaffen Division. Since enlisting in the Army on April 11, 2017 in his Virginia hometown, Carver has covertly participated in Atomwaffen Division armed military training “Hate Camps” in the southwestern U.S. and other activities on behalf of the U.S. domestic terror group.
While an active duty soldier, Carver has made numerous online references to his activities with the doomsday cult terror group, including posting photographs from U.S. military facilities that reference his clandestine political activities.
His work and membership in a domestic terrorist group apparently went undetected by his U.S. army command, and
Carver was promoted to Private First Class in a ceremony at Ft Bliss in February 2018.
“#IronThunder is proud to share the promotion of three #HellRaiserBattery Soldiers. Congrats to PFC Shaw, PFC Carver, and SPC James. We look forward to continued growth from these Soldiers and the entire 4-27 Field Artillery Team!,” reads a posting on the 1st army division Iron Thunder Facebook page.
In online chat logs from servers where Atomwaffen members congregate, Carver discussed the need to keep his Atomwaffen Division membership secret from his superiors knowing it was forbidden by army rules.
“Guess that’s a good reminder for me to be on guard. Yikes!”
Carver said in a December 12, 2017 conversation with head of the Atomwaffen Division Washington state cell, Kaleb J. Cole. The two were discussing another member having broached the group’s operational security methods to protect their identities.
“Just don’t be open about it,” Cole advised Carver.
“Yeah, I ain’t now. I let myself too much in AIT (advanced individual training). Never got wind to anyone in command luckily, but that was the divine looking out for me tbh.”
Carver was deployed in late 2017 to U.S. army base Camp Buehring in Northern Kuwait. From there and from Ft. Bliss, he posted numerous references to his Nazi, Satanic, and white supremacist activities on social media.
Carver, like all Atomwaffen Division members, used numerous aliases on social media and the group operated their own by invitation only secure server on the online gaming platform, Discord, where they would congregate for group discussions.
A photograph posted on Carver’s Instagram account while he was deployed to Camp Buehring Kuwait in late 2017 depicts Carver in uniform with a copy of the book “Hostia: Secret Teachings of the Order of Nine Angles” resting on his knee. It is captioned “Hidden in plain sight #O9A #orderofnineangles #hostia #knowledge #esoteric #military #soldier”
Carver’s Instagram screen name is killing.j0ke https://www.instagram.com/killing.j0ke and his biography reads “I am the leper that leers at the gate.” The name is listed as “Storm Carver” and the thumbnail is a picture of Carver.
Another Instagram posting shows him holding up the Satanic Order of Nine Angels book “Sinister Tradition” and his military base in the background with the caption “The desert gives you time to learn many things #O9A #orderofnineangles #occultism #knowledge #sinister #initiation”
“As soldiers of the Sinister way, we are the holy warrior Jihadists in the name of Satan,” reads a passage from Sinister Tradition.
The inclusion of the hashtags “#sinister” and “#initiation” suggests that Carver’s enlistment in the military may be part of an O9A Satanic initiation passage. Both the books Hostia and Sinister Tradition are manuals for O9A Satanic initiates which detail options to fulfill requirements for adherents. One specifically details enlisting in the military.
Corwyn Carver grew up in the southeastern Virginia town of Chesapeake, outside of Norfolk, and was raised from birth in an occult religious community. The only child of William and Sheila Carver, the family are enthusiastic members of the Asatru Folk Assembly. His father, William, is a science teacher in the Norfolk, Virginia public school system, and an Asatru priest, medieval re-enacter, and leader in Virginia occult circles. The senior Carver uses the alias Norsewyk Grimnir in his Pagan activities, which include leading the local Eastern Beach Kindred Pagan organization and teaching classes on Northern Magic and Northern Lore in the Asatru Pagan community. Carver is part of a Virginia re-enactment group called A Time in History, which appears at public events to demonstrate ancient Nordic religious and historical practices such as sword fighting.
In a 2018 article by Carver on the fascist online forum, Universal Order, used by Atomwaffen Division to distribute their propaganda, Carver argued for the use of mass violence and terror to achieve their political objectives.
He wrote of the need for fascist warriors who “show willingness to commit suicide” and “take the lives of men in their prime.”
Calling it “a preparation for the battle to ensure the survival and renewal of his (and our!) Race”, Carver wrote that the Nordic warrior God “Wōđanaz by his very nature rejects the common view of what we as National Socialists must be if we are to follow him. Whereas the movement promotes a lock step submission to arbitrary rules and regulations, Wōđanaz regards no law in his quest for knowledge. He shows willingness to commit suicide…rape…and to take the lives of men in their prime in order to fill his halls with warriors….Certainly no movement lackey’s role model!”
Carver wrote of “renewal through destruction” arguing that “through this death comes new life” which “produces Order from the Maelstrom.”
Carver urged other Atomwaffen members to “discard all that has been imposed on you, all of the illusions and lies. Trappings of orthodoxy thrust on you by dead men and rotten systems of control” and to “prepare for the end” urging other fascists to “take action to effect themselves and their own reality.”
“We have a lot of corporals in this unit. But most people just go from specialist to SGT,” wrote Carver to other members of the Atomwaffen Terror group in 2018.
“There are plenty of groups where we can meet with these people,” Carver wrote in another Atomwaffen Division discussion October 30, 2017 about fraternizing with other far-right extremist groups. “But if they’re not down with Helter Skelter let ’em run in circles elsewhere.”
Helter Skelter is a slogan coined by Charles Manson to describe random violence and murder committed to spark a race war.
PFC Carver’s allegiance to Hitler is clear from numerous of his writings and intercepted online conversations. “Imagine if young SS members and Hitler youth were given free range by Hitler to go into the country and root out all the old aristocrats (who by in large betrayed the Nazis) and all the old way of thinking. Would have been great,” Carver said on January 27, 2018. “
Referring to Jewish immigration to Europe and North America, Carver said ‘At any point the mob that chased the Jews out of the country could have been the last one. At any moment Europeans could have stood up and done it. But they didn’t. When a woman is dumb enough to let an abusive guy come into her home again and again, we call her a retard. And we realize that there is something wrong with HER psyche….It is no different with Jews and the System,” wrote Carver to fellow members of his terror group while stationed at Ft. Bliss in El Paso.
They could have stopped it. When they were in their ‘stronger’ and more righteous position they could have ended it. They didn’t. Take all the Jews out and the System will keep on poisoning, because that’s all it does. Capitalism in and of itself is a poison even if it’s 100% white,” he said in January 2018. “At any point, the mob that chased the Jews out of country after country could have been the last one. At any moment Europeans could have stood up and done it. But, they didn’t…White people let this happen. Europeans let them come into their countries again and again and again, like we did,” Carver said. “If all the Jews disappeared tomorrow, which would be a nice great thing, Do any of you actually believe the system would stop what it is doing?”
“‘Kill em all’. Precisely the position,” he concluded.
On his Facebook page, Carver’s father said of the photograph “amusingly, that’s my son, who considers himself a Tyrsman. Still, in this image, baby Fenris is not yet chained, so that set of events hasn’t happened yet…”
Fenris is the basis of the wolf in the modern children’s story Little Red Riding Hood.
Carrying out lawless violence and carnage will result in the “representative of the old structure (to) pass away. But through this death comes new life…and establishes a new and greater order on the remains of the old. A golden King to rule the world. Does this sound familiar?” asks Carver.
“Wōđanaz is not the God of the foot soldier, He is the God of the ecstatic warrior. Wōđanaz is not the God of the stay at home, He is the God of the wanderer. Wōđanaz is not the God of the lemming masses, He is the God of the Aristocratic elite. Wōđanaz is not the God of the movementarian who waves a sign, hoping to attract an army before he even thinks about serious action. He is the archetypal God of those who Embrace Universal Order. Who prepare for the end and take action to effect themselves and their own reality. Wōđanaz serves as an archetype for the initiate of Universal Order to follow in the quest for Truth,” Carver writes.
His reference to “Universal Order” is to a phrase coined by mass murderer Charles Manson of a worldview of a new global order of Aryan control that can only happen after an apocalyptic collapse of current global institutions.
“Beginning with nothing, he cuts the head from his father (and what is more sacred to someone than family?) And produces Order from the Maelstrom…He goes further to sacrifice even Himself to Himself. Dying to the world so that he may return with an even deeper knowledge… Wōđanaz proves to value nothing more than the Truth. Echoed in the call of Universal Order to discard all lies and illusions and focus on what’s Real.”
Wōđanaz…has trampled all semblance of constriction beneath him in his quest, and invites you to do the same in order to fulfill yours. To quote the great Dr. Joseph Goebbels. ‘We shall have reached our goal, when we have the power to laugh as we destroy, as we smash, whatever was sacred to us as tradition, as education, and as human affection.’ Hail Wōđanaz!”
A Terrorist in the Army
It is unclear whether Carver enlisted in the military for the purpose of advancing the work of the Atomwaffen Division, but members are encouraged to join the military to obtain weapons and tactical skills they can use to train other group members. Military service “was a benefit to the group because they got training that they could offer to others,” said one former member of Atomwaffen Division in an interview.
Other photographs include Carver, wearing a U.S. army shirt, taking a selfie of himself giving the Nazi salute in the bathroom mirror of his quarters at Ft Bliss.
Carver’s membership in Atomwaffen Division WD is a violation of U.S. army regulations. “Participation in extremist organizations and activities by Army personnel is inconsistent with the responsibilities of military service,” according to the U.S. army equal opportunity manual. “It violates the Army’s EO policy. It also disrupts cohesion and morale in units. All military personnel must reject participation in extremist organizations as well as activities.”
A 2008 FBI assessment titled “White Supremacist Recruitment of Military Personnel since 9/11” said “FBI reporting indicates extremist leaders have historically favored recruiting active and former military personnel for their knowledge of firearms, explosives, and tactical skills and their access to weapons and intelligence in preparation for an anticipated war against the federal government, Jews, and people of color.”
Carver invokes anti-Semitic, racist, and homophobic references in many of his social media comments.
“First sergeants are officially all homosexual Jews who will die during the revolution,” Carver wrote on January 28, 2018. Three days earlier Carver wrote: “Soldiers, criminals and workers make the best Nazis- just a fact.”
Carver has repeatedly detailed his allegiance to the armed overthrow of the U.S. government through the use of mass violence and domestic terrorism.
The Atomwaffen Division are responsible for at least 5 murders in since May 2017 and aggressively promote the use of mass violence and the targeting of ethnic groups, religious groups, and political opponents. They openly celebrate terrorist attacks against churches, mosques, synagogues, gays, non-whites, Jews and others.
They applaud and celebrate terrorist attacks on churches, mosques, and synagogues and view as heroes of their cause such people as Robert Bowers, who shot and killed 11 worshippers at Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue last October; Dylan Roof, the 21-year old American white supremacist who murdered nine elderly African American church parishioners at the Charleston, South Carolina Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 17, 2015.
“(Dylan) Roof is kinda low tier lol,” PFC Carver said in a group discussion with fellow Atomwaffen Division members September 12, 2017, referring to the South Carolina church mass murder in 2015. “Shooting up a geriatrics in a church is soft target shit, the reasoning and action isn’t bad.”
In the hours and days after the mass shooting that left 50 dead and 50 more wounded in a New Zealand house of worship in March, hundreds of young men congregated on chat sights frequented by Atomwaffen Division members and their sympathizers. “I don’t follow anyone on Twitter that is in AW, but I know they have loads of fans on Gab that have been posting in support of the recent shooting,” one Atomwaffen Division member who recently left said in an interview. “Everyone that is in the servers I’m in on my discord accounts are all supporting this recent event (in New Zealand) as well.”
In January, 2018 Carver posted this excerpt from the Robert E Howard Poem ‘The Song of the Mad Minstrel’:
“I am the thorn in the foot, I am the blur in the sight; I am the worm at the root, I am the thief in the night. I am the rat in the wall, the leper that leers at the gate; I am the ghost in the hall, herald of horror and hate. I am the rust on the corn, I am the smut on the wheat, Laughing man’s labor to scorn, weaving a web for his feet. I am canker and mildew and blight, danger and death and decay; The rot of the rain by night, the blast of the sun by day. I warp and wither with drouth, I work in the swamp’s foul yeast; I bring the black plague from the south and the leprosy in from the east.”
Atomwaffen Division videos produced while Carver has been an ideological leader show members firing weapons, burning the U.S. Constitution, setting fire to the American flag, and calling for “Race War Now!” during tactical weapons training on federal land.
“We must maintain a public image of strength and uncompromising ruthlessness in dealing with enemies of our race,” wrote John Cameron Denton, who uses the online moniker “Rape”, on an Atomwaffen Division discussion forum in 2018.
When Denton’s name was publicly revealed, he responded on January 28, 2018 “They think they can stop RAPE!? THEY THINK THEY CAN STOP ME!? MY REAL NAME AINT GOING TO STOP ME FROM RAPING THE WHOLE POPULATION.”
Denton has hundreds of online discussion messages where he, like Pfc Corwyn Storm Carver, pledges allegiance to Charles Manson and Adolph Hitler.
Denton currently lives in Conroe, Texas, near Houston.
“Both Stalin and Hitler did nothing wrong,” wrote John Cameron Denton’s brother, Grayson Patrick Denton, also a member of the Atomwaffen Division living in Conroe, Texas.
“The Kulak’s and Jews had it coming.”
“We’re only going to inspire more ‘copycat crimes’ in the name of AWD,” wrote Sean Michael Fernandez, who uses the online name Wehrwolf. “All we have to do is spread our image and propaganda.”
He was referring to the murder of 19-year old Blaze Bernstein, a gay Jewish man in Southern California by Atomwaffen Division member SamWoodward on January 1, 2018.
“Just never admit to anyone about being a member of AWD. Even if you are arrested or something. Just deny, deny, deny,” Fernandez wrote on January 30, 2018.
“No longer fear the tyranny of nigger cattle! Avanti!,” wrote Pfc Carver in 2018. “
“Charles Manson never got retribution. Fuck this society,” responded another Atomwaffen Division member ‘Big Nigger Harry’.
“This guy is great. We’re Manson’s retribution my dude,” replied U.S. Army Pfc Corwyn Carver of El Paso, Texas.
