Members of notorious neo-Nazi group the Atomwaffen Division celebrated the murder of a gay Jewish student, according to secret chat logs unearthed by ProPublica. Samuel Woodward, the man accused of killing 19-year-old University of Pennsylvania student Blaze Bernstein, was previously exposed by the website late last month as having trained with the Atomwaffen group. That report was shared among members of the neo-Nazi group in a secretive chat, with one member writing of the killing “I love this,” and another praising Woodward as a “one man gay Jew wrecking crew.” The neo-Nazis used voice and text app Discord to communicate and keep their chats secret, but around 250,000 encrypted messages were obtained by ProPublica, giving a rare glimpse inside the group. The logs suggest there are around 20 Atomwaffen cells across the U.S., that some members have taken part in weapons training, and show members praising Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof and Norwegian mass-murderer and white supremacist Anders Breivik. Bernstein’s was the fifth killing tied to the Atomwaffen group.
