Atomwaffen Division Splinter Group Targeting Neo-Nazi Troll Paul Miller

While they would seem like ideological allies, his Romani heritage has made him a target.

Serial harasser and neo-Nazi internet troll Paul Miller has become the focus of a targeted harassment campaign by his fellow neo-Nazis. Miller rose to a small amount of infamy by shouting white supremacist talking points and racist slurs while in a variety of costumes. His burgeoning popularity among immature and typically young neo-Nazis is drawing the attention of the more hardcore, pro-terrorism types.

We recently reported on Canadian Brandon Martinez, who carries out the same kinds of harassment on a video chat platform popular with children.

Miller is now under siege. The battle faced by the former amateur muay thai fighter is not at the hands of the dreaded “antifa” he once boasted about warring with on the street, but rather two groups who would seem like natural allies at first. One is a community of neo-Nazi telegram users that worship mass shooters, the other is a man trying to revitalize the Atomwaffen Division brand -- which Canada recently designated as a terrorist entity.

Miller’s career as a fighter never took off, but the attention he received after an alleged battle with antifascist protesters outside a speaking event for Gavin McInnes in New York managed to land the “independent journalist” an interview on the pro-Trump One America News Network, and other uncritical coverage.

"They tried to kill me," Miller told Newsweek, two days after a street brawl outside the Republican Club. "These were terrorists." 

Newsweek verified almost none of his claims. NBC News noted that Miller went on stream before the brawl and said, “I wanna go over there and instigate it but the cops are here so we’ll be nice.”

“I wanna fuck them up real bad, but the cops are here.”

Since then he has continued his streak of stoking conflict at protests. At one point claiming to be a “Boogaloo Boy,” he hit the streets of New York City to film Black Lives Matter’s protests. Quickly identified, he would later claim in streams that antifa was protesting outside his parents’ combined business and home. 

As his address and picture of the residence circulated online, so too did clips of Miller. Dressed primarily as Batman’s The Joker, Miller has proven more adept at self-marketing than some of his counterparts. Amassing over 40,000 followers on a channel might not rank too high on YouTube, but in the end-to-end encrypted spaces favoured by neo-Nazis it is enough to count as soaring popularity.

Streams used to harass people are nothing new in this sphere and some of the people harassing Miller have no issue with his tactics or his often underage targets. Rather, it’s his Romani heritage. Despite shouting his love for National Socialism at what may now be thousands of people, the man who refers to himself as “Gypsy” has found he’s not welcome among all accelerationists. 

Though he has made some denials about his specific location, Miller at some point appears to have relocated to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Relocating may have bought him a reprieve from his enemies in the north, but it would bring him close to another source of danger -- the harasser claiming to be affiliated with Atomwaffen Division.

In chat rooms dedicated to pursuing Miller, the man appears to operate with a detailed knowledge of the area, recognizing the locations of stores in the background of his videos. 

First appearing on a channel leading the harassment as only a gif file, footage by the man claims to be recorded outside of Miller’s residence. 

“Hello Paul Miller,” a voice says from behind the camera. The frame shows a row of townhouses through an open car window. 

Slowly the window rolls up: “You don’t know who I am, but you will very soon.”

The Canadian Anti Hate Network has connected with the individual who claims to have made the videos. On Telegram there are several users praising the dox and Miller’s harasser has been basking in his accomplishment and accolades. 

On January 30, a new channel bearing the name Atomwaffen appeared. In recent days it has featured more videos from within what appears to be the same vehicle. 

“I tried to warn you Paul, but you just didn’t want to listen,” a familiar voice explains, his frame focused on the back of the same alleged property. 

Another shows a series of clips showing the National Socialist Workers Party’s treatment of the Roma people. Including images of communities being rounded up and flashing quotes about how the Nazi’s were “combatting the G****y plague,” alongside photos of executions, bodies, and starving men, women, and children. 

Miller claims to have seen his harasser following him near a Waffle House.

The most recent video on the channel opens with the Atomwaffen Division flag. It fades into a partial photo of Miller’s harasser, masked.

“You thought you saw me here? Maybe you’re right.”

Miller says the harassment has made his girlfriend leave him, claims his old landlord has been sent an indomitable amount of pizza, and a woman believed to be his girlfriend (which he denies) he says has been subject to similar harassment. 

Police reports also state that numerous calls were made on January 30 about a suspect breaking into Miller's address. Police attended the scene, finding no one, though calls about the alleged robbery continued to come in. The building landlord told police that Miller said he would "leave for a little while so nothing bad would happen at the complex" and that things would calm down. 

"Throughout the day today, multiple cabs have shown up looking for Paul along with food delivery drivers," an officer noted.

Days later police received a call from a Canadian woman, claiming her "ex-boyfriend [Miller] passed out nude videos that she sent him to his friends." Police records show officers were unable to follow up with the caller.     

Things seemed to come to a head after he claimed to be walking away from his “movement.” Miller returned in less than a week. His harassers said that when he stops streaming, their campaign against him will end. 

During his short hiatus, however, there appeared to be little rest from his trolls.  

Posts from his harassers claim that they have flooded his IP address with incoming requests that would make it near impossible to conduct his streams. 

While many would see neo-Nazis eating their own as karmic justice, the claimed AWD affiliation gives pause. His claim to be trying to reform AWD seems to be more serious than other recent, unfruitful attempts. 

When reached for comment, Miller’s harasser would not say if he was a member of the original Atomwaffen, but did say he was a member of another neo-Nazi group that splintered off from AWD around 2017. Activity in public chats shows that many core members appear to have remained together on multiple servers, including other user accounts associated with AWD.

The same group was responsible for misleading the media about the involvement of the Parkland school shooter with another fringe group known as the Republic of Florida.

The claims of a reformed AWD shouldn’t necessarily be taken at face value either. He would later comment that using the group's name was "just a psyop to mess with an annoying grifter," for the amusement of his group, but all the AWD usernames in his orbit means it cannot immediately be dismissed either.

 

Paul Miller declined to comment when contacted.
