🧵A man who killed five people and injured 17 others inside a Colorado night club, has been charged with 305 criminal counts over the deadly shooting.
The shooting associated with Oslo Pride in 2022, as well as the attacks on LGBTQ+ spaces in Colorado and Bratislava are part of a wider #antifeminist, misogynist narrative that is espoused across extremisms.
#FarRight ideologies are often grounded in their focus on national agendas and ethnic purity, but #misogyny and anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment is an issue that links them across different local contexts.

Just out #openaccess in @PRXjournal : my IMHO so far best text on #farright #protest #rituals in #Germany during & beyond pandemic 🥳 It deals with the puzzle of #movement persistence from an #ethnographic perspective (1/5)…
I argue that the ritualization of #protest is strongly linked to #movement persistence. Basically: when participants believe in the deeper sense of the protest #ritual, they take to the streets despite a lack of both resources & external triggers (2/5)
I draw on my by now >2y #fieldwork in the #German #farright #noPegida that survives in #Dresden for already 8y against all odds (in fact they happen to demonstrate tonight for sth like an “anniversary” - my take on earlier versions…) (3/5)

There is still quite a lot to digest about yesterday's #ElezioniPolitiche2022 but it's a rainy Monday in Paris, so here's four main points on which @PietroCastelliG & I agree about the results. A🧵:
1. Italians are disillusioned with electoral politics, more than ever.
Turnout dropped by about 9% from 72.9% in 2018 to 63.8% in 2022. As noticed by @Vinceman86 & B. Marino this is one of the biggest drops in turnout in Western Europe since 1945.
Furthermore, electoral participation is all but equally distributed between the centre/north (Emilia-Romagna Veneto and Lombardy above 70%) & the South (Calabria 51% Sardinia and Campania 53%)

In my @readpassage interview, I noted that striking turnabout of #media coverage of neo-Nazi-led #Azov regiment during #UkraineRussiaWar is due to politics & that this can lead to blowback in #Ukraine & the West. #UkraineWar 1/…
@readpassage "...They claim that calling the Azov Regiment a neo-Nazi group is no longer accurate. But Ivan Katchanovski, a political science professor at the University of Ottawa specializing in Russia, Ukraine and armed conflicts, told Passage that these sorts of claims are inaccurate." 2/
"While the Kremlin’s framing of Ukraine as a Nazi state is false, Katchanovski said, Western governments and media have gone in the opposite direction: “They’ve started to deny any presence of neo-Nazis.” #UkraineRussianWar #UkraineWar #RussiaUkraineWar #Russia #FarRight 3/

[thread][#greecepolicestate][#farright][#patches][1] Yet another time that a greek police officer is seen wearing a far right patch, this time in #SKG, in a picture taken by @teacherdude >
[2] The "infidel" patch, which can be seen in the picture is -definitely- not part of the standard uniform insignia of the hellenic police, and it's part of a "family" of patches relevant to the crusades, originating -according to sources- from the KKK in the US. >
[3] It is interesting to note that the officer seems to be serving in one of the mobile/moto units of the hellenic police, the infamous DELTA/DRASI or DIAS, which are also tasked with stop-and-search operations in Thessaloniki & Athens >

Russia has fomented the rise of the far right across central and eastern Europe. Like a virus attacking its host, malign Russian influence seeks out and attacks democracies.
Eroding the foundations of democracies takes years to fully achieve the desired destabilizing and disabling effects, as the western model of democracy becomes more discredited and undermined so the Kremlin’s model rises up.
Russia’s networks of influence are complex, rendering a countries ability to conduct oversight through transparency, accountability and the rule of law extremely vulnerable to exploitation and manipulation.

This report explores the impact that #security #thinktanks such as the Henry Jackson Society (#HJS) are having on British #democracy and societal cohesion
It highlights links between such groups & the British & international #FarRight which combine with patterns of divisive
far Right which combine with patterns of divisive and agenda-
driven reports based in impoverished methodologies to #shape UK #policy & #political #discourse for the worse.

Right mobilisation, & pushing successive UK governments towards policy positions that damage societal cohesion.

As I said, "Canadian policy turns a “blind eye” to ultranationalist extremism and human rights violations & this silence basically is used by the #farright in #Ukraine and by the #Ukrainian government as immunity, as a sign of support, as a green light.”…
And it has not been reported yet in #Canadian media that leader of #Neonazi C14 admitted that his C14-based Maidan Self-Defense company took refuge in the Canadian embassy in Kyiv on February 18 and stayed there during the Maidan massacre. (p. 21).…

Someone alerted me to a new post in Zelda's Facebook #HateClub (thank you)

On the surface it indicates a #Conservative partisan/electoral purpose & that's interesting enough, but upon digging deeper it's a legitimate cause for #NatSec concern

We are being told that we should separate Jewish people from #Jewish state of #Israel. The same people refuse to separate Muslims from Al Quida, ISIS, etc. who refuse to separate #Palestinians from #Hamas, Islamic Jihad, or separate progressive #left from China, Russia, et
> Their argument for the above is, all Muslims have same religion & sympathise with ISIS, Al-Quida objectives. They say #Palestinians elected #Hamas so they're all terrorists. They call left #Antisemitic for supporting #Palestinian struggle & opposing Israeli #apartheid system

The torrent of #racist #disinformation in Ireland in the few days since the tragic killing of #GeorgeNkencho has shown it’s driven by a very vocal minority, in concert around key accounts. Co-ordinated, deliberate #FarRight agitators supporting Irish neo-nationalist groups. ImageImageImageImage
Many of these accounts are bulk generators of #racist and #conspiracy content across social media platforms. Well-established among these propagandists is the avowedly racist and #AntiSemitic YouTuber, Keith Woods - aka #NUIG graduate Keith O’Brien of Roscommon #AltShiteUnmasked ImageImageImageImage
#Racist Keith O’Brien generates masses of #FarRight #Propaganda, to 29k subscribers on @YouTube alone. Voices like this are pivotal to local #AltRight movements, but Ireland is small and #AltShiteUnmasked all have real names, addresses, streets they walk down, and a job... ImageImage

#FarRight #Belgica

"A Bélgica é uma democracia. As democracias realizam eleições regulares. As eleições geralmente levam a governos funcionais. Não é assim na Bélgica." (Google tradutor)

Que peça fantástica!…
O Vlaams Belang é o sucessor do Vlaams Blok (VB), um partido "nacionalista" flamengo que remonta à história ignominiosa da colaboração flamenga com os nazistas durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial.

A ascensão do VB nas pesquisas começou no final dos anos 1980.
Dewinter promoveu seu partido como defensor comprometido da herança judaico-cristã, secularismo, valores liberais e modo de vida.

Fez um esforço especial para expressar seu compromisso com os direitos das mulheres, a única área em que o Islã era visto como vulnerável.

There are lot of received wisdoms about #FarRight (often wrongly referred to as #populism ) and #COVID19 so @JakubWondreys and I looked into it. Turns out, shocker, most are wrong.

Below is link to Open Access article. Main points in #thread…
1. We focused exclusively on main far right parties in Europe and on the first wave. However, recent update shows that little has changed.
2. First, we looked into stereotype that "populists" (i.e. far right) ignores or minimizes COVID-19. This is almost exclusively based on Bolsonaro and Trump, who turn out to be exceptions rather than rule.

Spoke to @Guardian podcast about growing up in post-War #France... that is post-#Algerian War of Independence, still v. much in living memory. The War’s legacy is perceived in all kinds of aspects of modern life, still blighted by the #colonial experience.
A point that is easily overlooked by foreign observers is that the 2nd most influential party in #France now was founded by far-right nationalists who wanted to keep #Algeria French. #LePen's FN -now called the Rassemblement National -is openly racist, islamophobic & antiSemitic.
In his '#Separatism' speech @EmmanuelMacron was sugar-coating #reactionary policies based on the premise that 5-6M French #Muslims can’t be trusted to manage their own affairs & required surveillance at all times.The emphasis was that Islam is a chronic #problem around the world

103 years ago this day on 19 Nov 1917 (the same year in which John F Kennedy was born), in Allahabad, India (now known as Prayagraj), a daughter was born to the most illustrious political families of the time
#IndiraGandhi became India's First woman PM
#JFK became the 35th #POTUS
The #FarRight remember Indira Gandhi for the #Emergency she declared in 1975 - the suspension of Constitutionally guaranteed civil rights. But not because they are champions of citizens' rights and freedoms. On the contrary they are taking away our rights and freedoms silently
The liberal secular left remembers Indira Gandhi's Emergency because the experience taught them the value of Constitutionally-guaranteed #Rights and #Freedoms.
