As noted by identifyevropa.org and by a recent Huffington Post piece, Identity Evropa membership included many current and former members of the United States military. Military membership in white nationalist and neo-Nazi groups is hardly a new development.. Recently, military neo-Nazis were also discovered in the neo-Nazi paramilitary/survivalist group The Base and within the murderous Atomwaffen Division.

The Northwest Forum is an exclusive event hosted by white nationalist Counter-Currents Publishing. In the past, Counter-Currents has hosted notorious racist Jared Taylor, disgraced neo-Nazi lawyer August Invictus, Identity Evropa founder Nathan Damigo, and Seattle’s own Nazi-ceramicist Charles Krafft. The 12th Northwest Forum is to be held in the Seattle area, and renowned Holocaust denier and anti-Semite David Irving will be speaking. One of the main organizers is an unassuming woman who lives in the Beacon Hill neighborhood and who at one point was deeply embedded in Leftist and social justice networks in Seattle. Her husband, a stay-at-home-dad and former organizer for the radical Left, is the main WA organizer for a national scale white nationalist organization currently being sued for their involvement in the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, VA in 2017. Their names are Spencer Sturdevant and Cyan Rose Quinn.

Identity Europa (IE) began in 2016, as a project founded by Nathan Damigo. The focus was on mass-movement building among white, college-age youth, typically framed in terms of white “Identitarianism”, and influenced by European organization Generation Identitaire, or Generation Identity. A significant part of IE’s messaging has focused on shifting away from openly racist rhetoric, and establishing a respectable facade for their organization by claiming that they merely support “pro-white” positions. However, this hasn’t stopped IE organizers or members from planning and engaging in violence, publicly promoting carefully-phrased racist and anti-Semitic talking points, and privately trading in overtly racist memes despite their leaders’ calls for careful optics.
