In their sectarian enclave, American neo-Nazis embrace a prophetic religion in which Hitler is no less AMERIC AN NEO-NAZISM 29 than a Christ figure, and Rockwell equates to St. Paul. As Jim Saleam has argued, the neo-Nazis see Nazi Germany’s twelve years [as Hitler’s ministry], the times of revealed faith and miracles. The war was the crucifixion.
