The outbreak of neo-Nazism and white supremacy across the country has shown the public symbols, terms and ideology taken directly from Nazi Germany and the fascist movements of the Holocaust. Some of those who attacked the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2020. Some of those who attacked the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2020, displayed neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic and white racist symbols, some of which glorified the Holocaust. In recent years, the American neo-Nazi landscape has been dominated by organizations such as the National Socialist Movement, the American Nazi Party, the American Vanguard, and the now-defunct Traditionalist Workers Party. Although American neo-Nazis do not fully support Nazi ideology as it was expressed in Germany during World War II, they embrace Nazi iconography, venerate Adolf Hitler, and promote his views on Judaism and minorities.

For example, during the racist riots in Charlottesville, right-wing radicals displayed Nazi flags with swastikas in addition to Confederate symbols. For example, the Atomwaffen unit, the largest neo-Nazi organization in the United States, opposes Jews, minorities and gays and describes itself as a "revolutionary national-socialist organization. Meanwhile, during Atomwaffe recruitment campaigns, activists declare that "joining us means a serious commitment not only to the Atomwaffe Division and its members, but also to the goal of Total Aryan Victory," and former member Devon Arthurs testified that "they want to build the Fourth Reich." Members of the organization believe that American democracy "has given way to Jewish oligarchs and globalist bankers, leading to the cultural and racial displacement of the white race." Their discourse includes neo-Nazi themes praising Adolf Hitler, promoting Holocaust denial and defining Jews as the enemy.

American neo-Nazis worship not only Adolf Hitler, but also a number of contemporary far-right terrorists, including Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, Charleston church shooter Dylan Roof and Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik.
