SEATTLE When Kaleb J. Cole landed at Chicago OHare International Airport after a trip to Europe last year, federal officials were waiting at the gate for a chance to question him. In his luggage was the trefoil flag of a neo-Nazi hate group. On his phone, a photo of two people posing at the site of the Auschwitz death camp.
The officials did not charge Mr. Cole with any crimes that day, or in the months to come, despite information that he was a leader of the Atomwaffen Division, one of the most violent extremist groups in the country. But last month, according to records provided by a prosecutors office Thursday, the authorities in Seattle moved to seize a cache of weapons from Mr. Cole, using a state law intended to prevent gun violence.
This was an individual who had access to firearms and was preparing for a race war, Kimberly Wyatt, a prosecutor in King County, Wash., said in an interview on Thursday.
The move was part of a larger effort by investigators around the country, including the F.B.I., to crack down on members of Atomwaffen, as officials seek to counter the rising threat from hate groups. The Atomwaffen Division has been linked to a series of killings.

100% politically motivated.
No signs of FbI cracking down on antifa and islamic terrorists, except when they erased the evidence at the border...
Did not fit their communist narrative
Barr seem to be like fly on sht when it comes to the elusive random Nazis in America, but every quiet when he is advised on communists terrorists in his midst. Got to be the belief in toxic masculinity in his head.
Really? What violent crimes have they committed?
How do they compare to Antifa and Black Lives Matter?
The Seattle city government is your enemy, folks and so is the government of the state of Washington.
So, by clicking on this thread, am I now on somebody’s list?
Antifa. BLM. Polar Bear Hunting. The Knock out game. 13/50. Any white person who is failing to prepare for serious social meltdown is a damn fool.
How do they compare to the average summer weekend in Chicago?
Citizen, everyone is on the list.
As long as you obey your rulers in every respect and in every moment, you have nothing to fear. :-(
Race war? What, are there more than half a dozen blacks in Washington state? What about the actual violent Washingtonians, Antifa? Sorry guys, we ain’t buying your nazi crap.
Way to go Wray!
FBI must have spent a lot of time studying this guy. Nothing else better to do.
Since when has Making preparations to defend oneself in chaotic circumstances become a crime? Dont get me wrong, I think racism is ignorant and stupid, but neither is a crime...., yet.

Why would they? Is merely having a flag, or a picture, even an offensive picture a crime? (other than say child porn, right?)
...authorities in Seattle moved to seize a cache of weapons from Mr. Cole, using a state law intended to prevent gun violence.
And there you have it, a creative (and broadening) interpretation of "red flag" laws. They can apparently be used to disarm anyone those in power disagree with. Don't like someone? Then you must feel "threatened" by them so wave the magic red-flag wand and take away their rights. What rights will be summarily removed next?
And further, no crime charged.
First they do the worst groups. Then less bad. Then moderate. Then harmless groups. This is how it will progress.
Yes, of course. And now I am too. But Im not concerned as all my guns were lost in a boating accident years ago.
***trefoil flag of the nazi hate group***
Say what? A girl Scout flag?
Never keep all your firearms in one location.
