Extremist Meaning or Representation

Using the sword with the Wolfsangel is intended to make the symbol look more cross-like as well as to connote the notion of Aryan Nations’ view of Christianity as a “warrior religion.” The crown is also intended as a Christian aspect of the symbol.

Background/History

A neo-Nazi, Christian Identity organization led by Richard Butler and based in Hayden Lake, Idaho. Aryan Nations is also known as the Church of Jesus Christ Christian. Christian Identity is a racist religion that teaches that whites ("Aryans") are descended from the Lost Tribes of Israel and are thus Godís chosen people; also that Jews are descendants of Satan and non-whites are soulless "mud peoples."
