An active-duty Marine assigned to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina has been charged with a gun conspiracy – which prosecutors say was led by a cabal of ex-neo-Nazi servicemen who wanted to create a “modern SS.”
Evidence includes a sickening video of actual gun training which ended with masked participants saluting “Heil Hitler” before a slide with the message: “Come home, white man.” It also includes chat logs in which the men discussed the shooting of anti-racist protesters.
Justin Wade Hermanson, 21, was named in a federal indictment along with Liam Collins, 21, and Jordan Duncan, 26, both ex-Marines who served at Camp Lejeune. The fourth person charged is Paul Kryscuk, 35, who partnered with Collins on Iron March, the now defunct fascist forum that spawned the terrorist organization Atomwaffen Division.
Unsealed court documents in federal court this week present a chilling scenario: plans for a paramilitary organization to buy land and possibly wage guerrilla warfare against “urban” Americans.
Collins, who had just enlisted in the Marines and only left the service in September, described his twisted vision in a 2017 March of Iron article.
“[E]everyone [in the group] is going to be forced to have served in the military of a country, be it the US, UK or Poland … That’s a long term goal, ”the message read. “I will be at USMC for 4 years while my comrades work on group physical training … It will take years to muster all the experience and intelligence we need to use – but that’s what that makes it fun. It takes a man’s will and heart to make such a commitment.
“Eventually we’ll have to get the guns out and go to work.“
– Paul Kryscuk, according to federal indictment
In a 2017 message to Collins, Kryscuk reportedly fantasized about achieving “the balkanization of America” by purchasing swathes of land in white, rural and conservative areas of the country.
“The first thing to do is to demolish the system, to assemble it and to destroy it [sic] the face until he was beaten beyond the point of death, ”he wrote, according to the indictment.
“Eventually we’ll have to get the guns out and go to work.”
Prosecutors say Collins, Kryscuk and Duncan have combined their forces to manufacture and modify weapons to make them more lethal and harder for law enforcement to trace – some of which are said to have been sold to the Marines, with Hermanson acting as a middleman .
Kryscuk, Collins, and Duncan, who became a military contractor after leaving the Marines, all moved to Boise, Idaho, this year. Over the summer, when the Black Lives Matter protests erupted over the police murder of George Floyd, Kryscuk and Duncan tracked down the protesters, the indictment alleges.
Posts from October 1 reportedly show Kryscuk and Duncan talking about their group – called BSN – shooting at protesters:
DUNCAN: “How the BSN finna gets to chipotle after hitting the legs”
KRYSCUK: “Death squad”
KRYSCUK: “Assassins Creed Hoodies and Removing 22 Guns”
DUNCAN: “People are panicking”
KRYSCUK: “On what”
DUNCAN: “The end of democracy”
KRYSCUK: “We can hope”
The Boise Police Department sentenced the group for raising issues in his town.
“Those who seek to provoke violence are not welcome in our city,” Boise Police Chief Ryan Lee said in a statement. “The Boise Police Department is committed to rooting out anyone, from any background and perspective, who would harm or sow fear in our community.”
The court register does not list any defense attorneys for the defendants.
