Neo-Nazi Soldier Charged as Child Pornographer

Extremists in the Military

A Special Forces soldier with close ties to a neofascist magazine has been charged with 21 counts of child pornography. Sgt. 1st Class Bruce H. Nelson, stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C., allegedly possessed pictures of girls as young as 5 years old being sodomized and raped by men.

According to law enforcement sources, Nelson has written for The Resister: The Political Warfare Journal of the Special Forces Underground, a white supremacist and anti-Semitic publication. Nelson also has allegedly distributed the magazine at gun shows.

Nelson, 38, of Fayetteville, was being held at the Cumberland County jail in lieu of $133,000 bail.

The Resister, published in Fayetteville by retired Special Forces sergeant Steven Barry, has itself been undergoing changes. According to an excerpt from the upcoming issue, the magazine will no longer be subscription-based.

Instead, The Resister will only be available to members of the MG Walker Society, a new membership organization that Barry says he is founding.

The new society is named after Edwin A. Walker, a major general in the Army who was reprimanded by President Kennedy in 1961 for indoctrinating his troops with far-right literature. Walker resigned in protest and became an active supporter of racial segregation.

Barry, who styles himself an intellectual fascist, has written that his only quarrel with the Nazis' form of National Socialism is its association with "socialism."

Last July, Barry wrote a letter to the Intelligence Report requesting that he be described as a "pæleo-Nazi" instead of as a neo-Nazi.
