List of white nationalist organizations
The following is the list of well-known white nationalist organizations, groups and related media:
White nationalism is a political ideology which advocates a racial definition of national identity for white people; some white nationalists advocate a separate all-white nation state. White separatism and white supremacism are subgroups within white nationalism. The former seek a separate white nation state, while the latter add ideas from social Darwinism and National Socialism to their ideology. The vast majority of white nationalists are separatists, and only a smaller number are supremacists. Both schools of thought generally avoid the term supremacy, saying it has negative connotations.

The small group was formed in 1985 by Michael Kühnen, Thomas Brehl and Christian Worch after the 1983 banning of the Action Front of National Socialists/National Activists. The GdNF was soon formalized into a well-ordered organization, taking in the former ANS/NA membership. The GdNF placed itself within the more radical Sturmabteilung tradition of Nazism rather than simple devotion to Adolf Hitler, staging marches, paramilitary training and setting up cells in the German Democratic Republic. After Kühnen came out in 1986, the GdNF remained loyal, but in the resulting split, the group lost control of both the FAP and the organizations of celebrations for Hitler’s 100th birthday. After Kühnen’s death in 1991, the group gradually passed out of existence.
- National Offensive, (German: Nationale Offensive; abbreviated NO) was a German neo-Nazi party formed in 1990 by Michael Swierczek, former chairman of the Free German Workers’ Party (FAP) in Bavaria. The focus of the platform of the NO was its fight against immigrants. It considered the blending of cultures to be genocide, and therefore called for the deportation of foreigners, tightening of German asylum laws, and making it more difficult to attain German nationality. In 1991 and 1992, the NO publicly supported former SS-member Josef Schwammberger while on trial for war crimes. the National Offensive was banned by the German Interior Ministry in 1992.

The FAP was relatively obscure until the larger and more active ANS/NA was banned in 1983, when prominent German neo-Nazi Michael Kühnen encouraged former members of the now-illegal ANS/NA to infiltrate the FAP in order to preserve a nucleus of organized National Socialism in Germany. However, the FAP itself was banned by the German government in 1995.

Originally intended as a continuation of the conservative pre-WWII German National People’s Party, it soon attracted a number of former Nazis and its program changed towards a more neo-Nazi stance.
