One Nation candidate attended extremist event, used volunteer member smh.com.au/national/one-n… via @smh
Notes: 1) The True Blue Crew formed during late 2015 & early 2016, largely inre anti-Muslim campaigns in Bendigo & Melton. Building upon pre-existing social networks, it made its formal debut in Coburg in May 2016, where it attempted but failed to disrupt an ‘anti-racist’ rally.
2) It organised further rallies -- flag-waving events in Melbourne in June 2016/17/18 -- & worked w United Patriots Front neo-Nazis in attempt to org anti-African vigilante squads, but in VIC esp has been subject to internal dissent following the conviction of several members >
3) for ‘domestic violence’, gun licencing violations, & allegations of abuse & financial impropriety by its leader, Kane Miller. Its most infamous supporter is alleged ‘terrorist’ Phill Galea; the Christchurch killer also expressed fulsome support for TBC.
4) Miller (below, smiling, sunnies) most recently had a moment to shine at Fraser Anning's rally in St Kilda in JAN; second foto is w LNP MP George Christensen @ Q Society conference, FEB 2017 (see : slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=40895).
5) Aside: Q Society's party-political expression is 'Yellow Vest Australia' (formerly: 'Australian Liberty Alliance'), a hobby for Perth socialite Debbie Robinson. It held a tiny rally in MEL y/day, attracting mebbe a dozen or so wEiRd0es. Its most famous face, Avi Yemini >
6) > is currently facing several charges that he injured, harassed & threw a knife at the face of a woman; two of Miller's ex-partners claim he attacked & injured them, while other members of TBC have convictions for similar. (Pretty standard behaviour for such Volk.)
7) In 2017-18, TBC expanded to NSW & QLD, holding flag rally in SYD in JUN 2018 &, as Begley's article states, in QLD throwing themselves behind RW candidates for #AusVotes2019.
8) In SYD, the TBC flag rally attracted the participation of var nazis, inc Thomas Hopper from Lads Society, which is what the UPF became after @facebook pulled the plug on it in MAY 2017 (also the grp that tried to recruit the Christchurch killer: smh.com.au/national/threa…).
9) The TBC flag rally last year also met w opposition from Kokoda veteran Bill (along w a handful of others); RSLs otherwise generally function as safe-spaces for TBC, Australia First Party, PFF, FACNP, white nationalists, & other racist & fascist grpings. #STRAYA
10) Since leaving/being booted from @Facebook, TBC has gravitated to Twitter-for-Nazis: #gab. NSW fuehrer, Mitch Van Dam, has declared that his grp will be marching thru #Penrith in June -- the suburb being the site of a lotta anti-mosque & anti-Muslim activity in past few yrs.
11) Note, however, in fairness to Cannington RSL in WA, they cancelled Final Solution's campaign launch last week. See : thewest.com.au/politics/feder….
12) Instead, the Little Nuremberg rally went ahead @ Caversham Hall c/o @Swan_Mayor. Among those who attended to support white nationalism was ex-UPF WA leader Dennis Huts. See : perthnow.com.au/politics/feder….
13) Huts is a Complainey Janey:
14) When, in late 2015/early 2016, the UPF declared they'd be forming a political party, 'Fortitude', one of the principal concerns was who among members could qualify to run. Huts worried (wrognly) that his criminal record would prevent him.
15) This attempt to form a political party was ill-omened: it was launched following the Reclaim Australia rally in Perth in NOV 2015 @ the HQ of neo-Nazi grouplet 'Aryan Nations'.
16) Six months later, the HQ was the site of the murder of FIFO worker Alan Taylor by Aryan Nations members Robert Wayne Edhouse & Melony Taylor/Attwood.
17) An account of their trial & conviction (MAR 2018) is avail here -- it's awful & grisly, but also telling, I believe.

18) Note that some of the remnants of Aryan Nations have rebranded as 'Combat 18', relocated from PER to SYD, & joined Tom Sewell's neo-Nazi grplet 'The Lads Society'. Here's chief TLS organiser Mark McDonald (ex-Squadron 88) w Anning in St K, JAN 2018.
