Neo-Nazis Who Plotted to Kill Antifa Activist Sentenced to Prison

One of the most disturbing and bizarre sagas involving an infamous American neo-Nazi terror group came to an end in a Georgia court today. Luke Austin Lane, 23, and Jacob Kaderli, 21, two members of The Base, were sentenced to six and 13 years in prison, respectively, for their role in an assassination plot against an antifascist activist and his wife.

“This case is a tragedy on many levels,” said Judge John Niedrach of the Floyd County Court, where the crimes were tried, noting the particularly gruesome nature of the planned killings.

In fall 2019, the two hatched a plan with Michael Helterbrand, 27, sentenced days ago to serve 20 years in prison for the same crime of conspiracy to murder, to execute a man living close to Lane that they knew to be an antifascist activist. (Helterbrand has since joined a hyper-violent white supremacist gang and was charged for a heinous crime while behind bars).

The trio’s assassination plan was to ambush the man inside his rural home at night, execute him and his wife with guns, and then burn the house down. But little did any of them know, the fourth man (a then-recently admitted member of the group) they enlisted to help with the murders was an FBI operative who logged the entire plot from start to finish. The undercover agent on the case, who used the persona of an aging biker-turned-hardcore racist, recorded Kaderli, the youngest among the plotters, taking delight in the possibility that the couple had a child.

Do these idiots not know that "Al Qaeda" means "the base" in Arabic, or do they simply not care?
