Washington Post profiles neo-Nazi living in Columbus, OH

Kam Musser spends much of his time—which is plentiful seeing as he is 21 years old without schooling, a job, a car, or a place of his own—scrolling through white supremacist websites and social media pages in his room at his mother’s house.

“If you believe white privilege is a thing we’re not friends,” he wrote in January 2016 on Facebook.

Kam lives in a Columbus suburb and was the recent focuses of The Washington Post.

His mother, Kirsten, does not know how to deal with her son’s beliefs, which she originally thought was a phase but is quickly realizing are becoming his life.

The Washington Post reports she was too afraid to research websites and groups he frequents like the Traditionalist Worker Party, a neo-Nazi, white nationalist group Kam joined to participate in White Lives Matter rallies.

When Kirsten finally worked up the courage, she said it made her stomach hurt…to think about her son’s alliances.

Kam began talking about moving to Tennessee where some of “his guys” were starting a “warehouse.” Kirsten didn’t know how to handle it and didn’t want to push her son away.

Kirsten’s mother though, Kam’s grandmother, did know how to handle it.

She made reservations for the two of them at a local restaurant. Kam wore a nice sweater which his grandmother complimented.

When his grandmother began questioning his path in life, Kam stood, removed his sweater to reveal a white nationalist t-shirt.

“Local Solutions To The Globalist Problem,” it said, along with his group’s website.

When asked if he had to chose between his group and his family, Kam replied, “I would leave the group. But I wouldn’t change how I feel.”
