Atomwaffen Division is an active group of disparate cells operating within the United States that promote National Socialist/fascist ideology and prepare for an impending race-war ala Charles Manson's 'helter skelter' beliefs. To prepare, adherents participate in 'hate camps' in the wilderness, where they train with firearms and rail against their enemies. The group has about 80 members nationwide, and supporters often use the nuclear hazard emoji in their social media account names to denote allegiance (see group image). Leaderless resistance, and personalized (lone wolf) direct action are Atomwaffen Division's favored organizing principles.Four murders and a bomb plot have been attributed to members of the group in the past year; as such, the Atomwaffen constitutes a clear danger to the public.

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.
