In the deep recesses of a neo-Nazi terror group’s online meeting ground, one of the most active posters is a Canadian. He goes under the pseudonym “Alba Nuadh,” a Gaelic reference to his home province and current residence of Nova Scotia. And he’s clandestine about his work.
This individual has taken painstaking efforts to keep his identity hidden: He uses multiple code names, carefully avoids disclosing personal details, and uses hidden chat networks.
Alba even once taunted an anonymous internet Nazi hunter, who couldn’t identify him, that he’d never be outed.
Through information gleaned from the inner workings of the global neo-Nazi movement, an inside source, and a vast cache of chat logs and social media postings, VICE has accrued substantial evidence pointing to the identity of this Canadian member of Atomwaffen Division, a far-right terror group based in the US.
