The secret tape shows the neo-Nazi group The Base recruiting former members of the military
Secret recordings of a terrorist neo-Nazi organization called The Base reveal that the group is recruiting people with military expertise in the US and Canada who are trained in military operations and ready to take advantage of what they believe .
Audio recordings range from calls between Aadhaar and over 100 potential recruits using encrypted app wire. The Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC, which monitors hate groups, says it recorded more than 80 hours of audio beginning in November 2018, and said the recording was released in a new three-part podcast called “Baseless” Shown which is being released as part of SPLC’s “Sound Like Hate” podcast series.
According to the SPLC, a confidential source provided the organization with the recording unsolicited, and this confirmed their authenticity with subject experts. The SPLC states that the audio appears not to have been edited.
Documentary filmmaker Jamila Paxima, co-host of the podcast, said that twenty percent of the potential recruits said they were active-duty military or in military service in some capacity. NBC News has heard a significant portion of the audio, but could not independently verify his identity or his claims.
The leader of The Base, Rinaldo Nazaro, who was born in the US, ran his operation out of his apartment in St. Petersburg, Russia, which they discuss in the recording.
Molly Saltskog, senior intelligence analyst at international security consultant The Soufan Group, said: “Highly lethal and dangerous operations that believe in imminent race warfare such as Bess or Atomofen make a concerted effort to recruit people with military experience. These Being of type. People in these types of organizations increase their operational capacity for counterterrorism activities. “
Saltskog said Nazaro is based in Russia “raising flags about the possibility of foreign influence on these white supremacist organizations operating on American soil.”
Naziro was formerly known only by his online surnames, Norman Spear and Roman Wolf, until The Guardian revealed his identity in January.
The Guardian and BBC used photos and property records to show the relationship between Nazaro and Spear aka. For example, the Guardian received a tax affidavit signed by Naziro for a property in Washington that was associated with Spear and owned by a company called Base Global. It also matched the pictures of Nazar posted on social media by Spear’s photographs. Meanwhile, the BBC located Nazaro and his Russian-born wife in an apartment in St Petersburg, bought in his name. NBC News has not reviewed those records.
“We are existentialism, a self-defense network,” Nazaro said in one of the recordings. “Our mission is very, very simple. It is training and networking, preparing for a collapse. We want to be in a situation where we are ready, we are ready enough, ready enough that we can do whatever chaos, power Can take advantage of the vacuum, it can emerge. We want to try to fill that power void and exploit the chaos. “
The Justice Department calls the base a “violent extremist group”. In the US, members of The Base have been arrested on charges of possessing weapons, committing vandalism and conspiring to murder.
“They hate Jews and African Americans. Their goal is to use terrorism to start a race war and to demolish the United States. Triggering social collapse may be an ill-conceived idea, but the reality is that domestic Terror has claimed more lives than international terror since 9. / 11, “Rep. Jackie Spiers, D-California. This year, a house hearing took place on incidents of white supremacy in the army.
Several documented interviews of interviews were conducted with potential members of the Nazro group. The SPLC states that machine learning was used in it, which was discussed. Violence and silence are recurring themes, but also widespread undertakings to divert attention from the media and law enforcement.
According to the SPLC, 80 percent of the recording has to do with the gun and the fall of America. The word “targeted” occurs in 45 percent of conversations, and the phrase “doing nothing illegal” appears in 30 percent of conversations.
According to the SPLC, Nazaro said in mostly positive terms that positive clues about the group could provide the most disgusting language.
“Many of our people, we have just a hatred for modern civilization and industrialization,” said the Ecologist. “We want to free ourselves, our fellow whites and animals from that system.” When Nazro asked how, he replied, “Economic sabotage like bombing, arson.”
“Growing up in California, I was mostly surrounded by, like, Filipinos, Asians, Mexicans, blacks and just watching how they behaved … and seeing, like, I don’t know, sometimes- Ever, their relationship with white women., “She said. “It disgusted me.”
Others bragged about weapons that were their own.
“Another potential recruit said,” In terms of firearms, I recently bought one of my own. “I have an AR-15. I practiced with it for a few weekends.”

According to the SPLC, Nazaro organized The Base “not as a hierarchical membership organization, but as a network of small, underground cells, each with a high degree of autonomy.”
Nazaro said on one of the recordings: “What people decide to do outside of the base with that training and contacts is their business. We don’t really need to know about it. I mean, definitely. From, it is better in a way that we. Not for everyone and for everyone’s success. “
