From left to right, Georgia residents Luke Austin Lane of Floyd County, Jacob Kaderli of Dacula, and Michael Helterbrand of Dalton were arrested last year and charged with conspiracy to commit murder and participation in a criminal gang for allegedly plotting the killing of a couple from nearby Bartow County who had been erroneously identified as anti-fascist or "antifa" activists. They are members of a violent hate group known as The Base, which is part of a far-right trend toward the ideology of "accelerationism" that sees the U.S. as in decline and promotes racial violence to hasten its collapse and the creation of a white ethno-state.
