When an anti-fascist infiltrator left The Base in 2020, he took 80 gigabytes of files with him. These screenshots, videos and audio detail the neo-Nazi organization from its inception, including around 100 hours of verification calls with white supremacists hoping to join it. Today, The Fifth Estate host Gillian Findlay walks us through this audio, the very first interview with the infiltrator who calls himself Tradian and what the recordings tell us all about ‘accelerationist’ ideology . Additionally, FBI tapes of base member and former Canadian Armed Forces reservist Patrik Mathews after his escape to the United States.
