Four members of the racist and antisemitic “Rise Above Movement” were taken into custody today and face federal charges of traveling to Charlottesville with the intent of rioting at the “Unite the Right” rally in 2017.…
“In our view, they were essentially serial rioters." U.S. Attorney Thomas Cullen
The Rise Above Movement (RAM) is an SPLC designated white nationalist hate group. It is comprised of hardcore white supremacists inspired by Iidentitarian aesthetics and the European circuit of racist, neo-Nazi MMA promotions, clothing brands and football hooliganism.
RAM members run their own clothing company, Right Brand Wear, and the group maintains active connections to Europe. Many core members in RAM, including some of those arrested today, have criminal records for violence.
This includes one of the group’s most visible members, Robert Rundo, who nearly killed someone in 2009. Some of the group’s members + close associates are also members of the Hammerskin Nation.
