Seemingly in response to the #NewZealandTerroristAttack, neo-Nazi groupuscule the 'New Zealand National Front' has issued a statement claiming 'nothing to do with us guv, honest' & -- sadly -- their website has been closed. (Still on @facebook, natch.)
2) Another WN groupsucule to have gone into hiding is the 'Dominion Movement'. Both its website & its social media accts (instagram et al) have disappeared -- which again, is very sad, but may serve them in good stead when pol come knocking ... ? instagram.com/dominion.movem…
3) DM presented itself as an 'Identitarian' grp; the US equivalent, #IdentityEvropa, sprang a massive leak recently (by way of @UR_Ninja), & you can follow the ensuing drama by way of #IdentifyEvropa.
4) DM got some media attn in NZ in DEC 2018 (stuff.co.nz/national/10940…). They employed the same stylee used by many equivalent grps in AUS, CAN, UK & US, & which will be familiar to AUS @facebook users -- where such material naturally & w #Facebook's approval proliferates.
5) DM's fuehrer is a nipster named Jarred Randell Walsh (closest to camera) of #Wellington (their base).
6) Closer to home, pol in NSW have declared that they'll be paying closer attn to the budding Tarrants in that state:

7) One link b/w AUS & NZ far-right is by way of neo-Nazi grplet 'Right Wing Resistance New Zealand'. Last year, one of its NSW members, Ricky White, was declared a 'terrorist' of sorts under the relevant NSW legislation.
8) Another RWR member, Ethan Tilling, went to Ukraine to fight in civil war (abc.net.au/news/2018-05-0…). This was, presumably, useful in terms of improving his martial skillz but also very naughty behaviour. Still, it appears as though he suffered no penalty upon return. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
9) Further inre RWR, NZ academic Paul Spoonley apparently declared in the court proceedings v White refed to above that *I* was Ricky White & I (ie, White) used my blog to promote RWR. (I wrote Spoonley to seek clarification but got no reply.) See : slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=44245.
10) In any case, Spoonley's views on Christchurch, terrorisms & nazis etc. can be viewed here: abc.net.au/news/programs/….
11) And while I'm sure the Prof has done good & useful werk on the subject of the far-right in NZ, as a general rule it pays to examine both scholarly efforts along w activist accts of phenom. Plus, I'm really *not* Ricky White or a neo-Nazi member of RWR, mmmkay? No rlly.
12) Also:

Who knew?
Who knew?
Who knew they got the experts in?

Who knew?
Who knew they let the film stars in?


13) Anyways, in add to NZNF, DM & RWRNZ, another trans-Tasman connect is by way of boneheads, esp Blood & Honour & #Hammerskins. In which context, aside from arsons & related incidents, to best of my knowledge only attack upon mosque using gun was in Perth several years ago.
14) That (2010) incident involved a small no of boneheads, inc Bradley Trappitt (see : slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=19648). Years later, in late 2015/early 2016, Trappitt joined veteran neo-Nazi Jim Perren to halp organise the launch of the UPF's stillborn party 'Fortitude' in Toowoomba.
15) Note that the announcement of the party's formation after a #ReclaimAustralia rally in Perth in NOV 2015 took place @ the HQ of neo-Nazi grplet 'Aryan Nations'; its members later got into trouble for murdering a guy @ that loc, but whatevs eh.
16) To return to Hammerskins, the network has a long & bloody history (it's proscribed in ESP, GER, POR) & gained a particular claim to fame when one of its members, Wade Michael Page, conducted a massacre @ a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012. See : slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=31996.
17) Massacring worshippers in this fashion was deemed by some to be v Bad behaviour, but AFAIK it had no impact upon the Hammerskins in AUS (or NZ) & the boneheads operate w relative impunity in both territories.
18) One of its AUS members, an ex-British Army guy turned mercenary called Kenneth Stewart, got a bit of attn back in 2011 (theage.com.au/national/victo…). Periodically, esp in US, noises are made inre nazis joining the army, but a lotta these guys work in security industry locally ...
19) As for Page, he was also connected to another neo-#Nazi gang called Volksfront. It was born in the US prison system, but officially dissolved foll the massacre in WIS (which was a bit embarrassing apparently).
20) The local (AUS) Volksfront franchise was originally est in the early 2000s. One of its organisers, Andrew Wilson, now works for Senator Fraser 'Final Solution' #Anning. (On L, Wilson w Anning in St Kilda, JAN 2019; on R, Wilson w VF boys.)
21) Beyond that, another AUS-NZ connect is by way of Kiwi 'Mark McDonald'. He too was in StK w Anning, & arrived in the co of members of neo-Nazi grplet 'The Lads Society', which has replaced the UPF. (MM is in centre of foto w sunnies.)
22) Prior to becoming organiser of TLS in Sydney (see @ActionAshfield), MM was fuehrer of short-lived nazi grplet 'Squadron 88' (88 = HH = Heil Hitler), whose chief claim to fame was stuffing Jewish letterboxes in SYD w badly-composed antisemitic tracts. 🙄
23) While #Anning was in MEL in OCT 2018 for the Freeze Peach event (slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=43653) organised by Blair Cottrell's lawyer John Bolton, MM, along w Bolton, Cottrell & var other worthies, attended the SYD leg. L to R: Bolton, Cottrell, MM, Oscar Tuckfield.
24) Anyway, to return to the subject of guns + nazis, James Buckle (L), the (former?) President of AUS gun lobby grp 'Firearm Owners United', was also a founding member of TLS, & is a close kamerad of (NZ-born) Tom Sewell (R). (More on Buckle on blog.)
25) All these guys f*cking love guns eh. Here's security industry worker Stuart Von Moger (w ex-VIC premier Dennis Napthine / posing w gun). He's been encouraging his fellow Lads to find work in the industry ... 'cause they get to play w guns & push ppl around & stuff.
26) Anyway, that's enuff for now. I hope this thread has been useful to illuminate some of the links (there are others) b/w AUS & NZ far-right activists. Otherwise, @FbAustralasia publishes useful stuff on the NZ situ, as has @ComradeBloc. Oh and ...

27) PS. It's sad & awful & heartbreaking that this kinda material becomes most relevant @ times like this, but it's Good moar ppl are paying attn, & there's rlly no shortage of werk to be done in order to combat these tendencies, in AUS, NZ & elsewhere. Love & solidarity! 🐱
