Liam Collins was kicked out of the Marine Corps in 2020 after he was discovered to post on a neo-Nazi message board. SHARE Aformer Marine kicked out of the Marine Corps for being a neo Nazi pleaded guilty this week to a weapons charge, part of a wider indictment accusing him of being part of a Neo Nazi plot to attack the American power grid.  Liam Collins pleaded guilty on Oct. 24 to transporting an unregistered firearm across state lines. Collins was kicked out of the Marine Corps in September 2020 after being identified as a regular contributor to a neo-Nazi message board. At the time he was serving at Camp Lejeune. He was indicted in October that year on charges of manufacturing and selling guns, ammunition and attachments such as silencers.  Fox 8 GHP first reported on the guilty plea. Court documents on the plea agreement are sealed as of press time.  Subscribe to Task & Purpose Today. Get the latest military news and culture in your inbox daily. The others charged in the plot include two other former Marines as well as an Army National Guardsman. Those indicted planned to “attack the power grid both for the purpose of creating general chaos and to provide cover and ease of escape in those areas in which they planned to undertake assassinations and other desired operations to further their goal of creating a white ethno-state,” the indictment alleged.  The October 2020 indictment initially focused on weapons charges, but the case grew as the plot to attack power grid substations in Idaho and nearby sites was discovered. Collins was charged with, among other counts, allegedly taking body armor and weapons from Camp Lejeune. The group allegedly discussed using thermite on the power grid substations. Collins pled not guilty to three other weapons charges, as well as one count of destruction to an energy facility. Two other veterans indicted in the case took plea deals, in 2022 and 2023 respectively, but have not been sentenced.
