Members of U.S. Neo-Nazi Terror Group, The Base, Believed Their Leader Was in Russia For Years - 2020-01-24
The man who singlehandedly built a neo-Nazi terror group in order to set off a white supremacist insurgency in America may be living in Russia.
The leader of The Base, who has gone by the aliases Norman Spear and Roman Wolf, was recently reported by the Guardian to be a 46-year-old New Jersey native named Rinaldo Nazzaro. The BBC followed the Guardian's story today and provided evidence that Nazzaro left New York to live in St. Petersburg, Russia with his Russian wife two years ago.
As early as October 2018, members of The Base were aware of Spear's alleged presence in Russia. A source inside of the terror group, at the time, showed VICE transcripts of internal chatroom exchanges. When one member wondered where Spear was upon the publication of a VICE investigation, another member replied: "Norman is asleep in Russia."
