Local Fascists and Nazis

This is an incomplete list of active Neo-Nazis and Fascists living in Philly or the surrounding area. We will try and keep it updated with new names and current information. If you have info on Neo-Nazis, e-mail it to us at PhillyAntifacists@gmail.com

Keystone State Skinheads (KSS) / Keystone United (KU) / Be Active Front (BAF)

KSS is a statewide Neo-Nazi crew (with some members in NJ) that has been around since 2001.  They are involved in assaults, rape and murder. KSS organizes Neo-Nazi concerts all over the state to recruit new members and raise funds. They also engage in “white nationalist activism,” which normally consists of scapegoating immigrants and attempting to infiltrate and recruit from European American social organizations and heritage events. This activism is usually engaged in under the banner of “Keystone United,” while downplaying their activities as KSS.

In Philadelphia KSS hosts a “Leif Erikson Day” celebration in Fairmount Park every fall we well as other secretly held events. They have also launched an initiative called “Be Active Front” which attempts to win new recruits by co-opting imagery from Hip Hop and Anarchist subcultures. KSS has recently aligned with Matthew Heimbach’s Neo-Fascist Traditionalist Youth Network and hosted their mid-Atlantic gathering here in Philly.

Atlantic City Skinheads (ACS)

The Atlantic City “Skins” have been around since the early 1990’s, when publicity generated from appearances on talk shows like Oprah and Geraldo led to a boom in Neo-Nazi bonehead gangs forming.  Unlike most of their contemporaries, ACS is still around.  Their members have been involved in countless assaults at bars and show venues over the years. Some of them have been imprisoned for murder and hate crimes.  They have strong ties with the NJ state prison skins. ACS avoids political activity because it draws unwanted attention and interferes with their fun. Nevertheless, they are a very real threat.  While they are based out of Atlantic City, several of their members live in the Philly area and others come here frequently for shows and events.
