*Nxt wk, David Hiscox, the editor of the antisemitic blog on which the story was published, is hosting a #nazi gabfest on @YouTube, feat the #nazi the Christchurch killer described as his 'Emperor', the fuehrer of nazi grplet The Lads Society, & some other RW blabbermouths.
In OCT last year, the Executive Council of Australian Jewry threatened to bring legal action against Hiscox, Matthew Roebuck ('Matty Rose'), Ryan Fletcher & XYZ ...

1/ Yeah so anyway, Milo Yiannopoulos &/or his ghostwriter has denounced his former #BFF & fellow dropkick Caolan Roberston. So far, so typical. The essay dissing CR contains a few refs to #auspol which are interesting, inc the 2018 tours by Stefan Molyneux & Lauren Southern >
2/ > & the aborted tour by MY/Gavin McInnes & Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (Tommy Robinson). Thus, acc to MY, CR reckoned SY-L's tour was destined to fail ('No visa for you!') & designed to rip-off his gormless Aussie fanboys & AUS tour organiser, Damien Costas/Penthouse Australia.
3/ Whether true or not, Costas/Penthouse AUS/Global Media & Entertainment Pty Ltd/et al (Costas has reportedly been in five 'failed' corporations over a 15-year period) was declared bankrupt in MAR, owing $ to a bunch of other rats (you can still buy tickets to the tour but!).
2) Ref is freq made in media reportage to Erikson's SEP 2017 conviction (along w fellow UPF members Blair Cottrell & Chis Shortis slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=41657) for srs religious vilification -- rather less frequently, his FEB 2014 conviction for stalking/harassing a Melbourne rabbi.
3) In that case, 'Magistrate Donna Bakos said she had no doubt Erikson's calls were motivated by prejudice & found he had little remorse for his crime'.
This is critical to understanding his subsequent & future behaviour, yeah?
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 >
1) The grp is 'The Lads Society' (TLS), a fascist cadre org est by ex-United Patriots Front (UPF) members Tom Sewell, Blair Cottrell & James Buckle (among others); TLS is in essence what UPF became after @Facebook unpublished the group's page in MAY 2017. #auspol#FCKNZS
2) UPF after Reclaim Australia/UPF rally, NOV 2015. L to R : Sewell, Linden Watson, Cottrell, Chris Shortis (Australia First Party), James Buckle. All remain politically active. (In MAR 2019, LW painted over #eggboy mural in Hosier Lane, Melbourne.) #Christchurch
Around the same time (DEC 2016), the Christchurch killer's "Emperor" Cottrell was also invoking 'The Day of The Rope' -- a term popularised by US neo-#Nazi William Pierce in his 1978 novel 'The Turner Diaries' (which also inspired Timothy McVeigh).
1) Gah. OK. Here's a thread on the Australian neo-#Nazi groupuscule (see Roger Griffin, 'From slime mould to rhizome: an introduction to the groupuscular right', @POP_Jrnl, Vol.37, No.1, 2003) Antipodean Resistance ... #antifa#auspol#FCKNZS
2) First, a coupla general obs. This disclaimer in James Hearnes' analysis of 'Siege' is worthwhile, but its application is not straightfwd, & raises a no of difficult issues.
3) In general, if I document nazi agitprop, it's typically w a view to using this material to actually identify those responsible for its production & distribution. So: Antipodean Resistance (AR) has developed a media strategy predicated on attracting attn, & its use of >
2) Burgess, who also once described himself as 'The Great Aussie Patriot', got his start in the 'Australian Defence League', but over the course of the last few years -- & esp following the decline of #ReclaimAustralia -- has, like many others, openly embraced neo-Nazism.
3) Like Christchurch killer, Burgess adopted Black Sun/Sonnenrad as symbol; like other Aussie nazis, foll the massacre, he's sought to scrub this fact from his online profiles, but conts to fulminate vs Muslims &c -- one of thousands of such accts @YouTube sponsors.
1) A reasonable analysis, to which I would add a few things. First, ASIO notes that: 'Individuals motivated by other ideologies [than Islamist extremists] – such as an extreme left or right-wing ideology – may consider conducting an act of terrorism.'
2) That's why a no of ppl in some way assoc w anTEEfa stuff in AUS have received visits in the past few years. Further, concern over left/right extremism is not brand-new; it was also noted in the agency's 2010--2011 report. See : slackbastard.anarchobase.com/?p=27201.
At risk of repetition, inre ths map via smh.com.au/politics/feder… I thought I might add a few more deets (another bloody thread).
1) 'Cooks Convicts' (MEL) emerged c AUG 2018. It incs Neil Erikson & Ricky Turner, but also a smol no others, inc (Eurydice Dixon memorial vandal) Andy Nolch, Rino 'Bluebeard' Grgurovic & Logan Spalding. L to R : RG, NE, AN, LS, RT. The hand signal may be familiar to some ...
2) Prior to CC, the grouping around Erikson he previously named 'Patriot Blue' after the white nationalist grping depicted in Stan's 'Romper Stomper'. The name was dropped after legal action, triggered by the Sam Dastyari incident (NOV 2017). See : sbs.com.au/news/stan-take….
1) Hey it's time for me to goto bed, but one final thing inre #eggboy/#eggboi. As noted, neo-#Nazi Neil Erikson was one of the 5 or 6 men who, er, restrained the teen; Erikson has criminal convictions for antisemitic (FEB 2014) & anti-Muslim (SEP 2017) actions.
2) Perhaps in order to complete the trifecta, last year (MAY 2018) he was also charged w disrupting a church service -- which involved him & some of his thuggish mates invading Gosford church & scaring some elderly parishoners.
3) He's due back in Melbourne Magistrates' Court on MAY 13 to face charges of riot/assault/affray stemming from the Melbourne date of the DEC 2017 Milo Yiannopoulos tour; joining him in court on same will be his sidekick Ricky Turner & old nazi chum Richard Whelan.
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.
TBH, shocking as it is, I'm not that surprised at the #Christchurch massacre, or that the alleged killer livestreamed his assault on @Facebook. There's literally thousands of pages dedicated to spreading murderous Islamophobia on the platform, w an audience of many millions.
You can gain some insight into the nature of the milieu by examining the joyful responses to the massacre; useful insofar as it helps explode the Ordinary Mums & Dads™ myth that leading sections of Australian media have been/will continue to propagate. #ReclaimAustralia#auspol
The killer wrote slogans on his guns. Among them is a reference to
Josué Estébanez, a neo-Nazi who stabbed a teenage antifa, Carlos Palomino, to death in Madrid in November 2007. The murder was ofc celebrated @ the time by local neo-Nazis, including Neil Erikson.
1) As noted, Cerminara was once Der Fuehrer of one iteration of the anti-Muslim 'Australian Defence League', est 2010 & modelled on Yaxley-Lennon's EDL (Yaxley-Lennon is being toured, along w Gavin McInnes & Milo Yiannopoulos, by @PenthouseAU in April).
2) That ADL didn't get v far, but did serve as the avenue by which Shermon 'The Great Aussie Patriot' Burgess was 'radicalised'. Burgess is now, perhaps inevitably, a Hitler fanboy; in the last few years Cerminara has been vociferously denounced by him as a violent drunk. Sad!
Milo Yiannopoulos was originally gonna tour AUS in May 2018, brung out by QLD businessmen Ben & Dan Spiller ('AE Media'/'Future Now Australia'). After a series of misfortunes, they eventually handballed responsibility over to Damien Costas/@PenthouseAU. #antifa#auspol
2) In OCT 2018, during the course of negotiations b/w the Spillers & Yiannopoulos, MY took the opp to denounce Costas as a fraudster & to declare that he would never work w him again. A few weeks later, MY changed his tune ...
3) A month after MY's DEC 2017 tour he took the time to wish everyone a happy #InvasionDay. Granted, his racist performances raised a few eyebrows, but his Perth MC, Andrew Bolt, has repaid the favour, & been a determined campaigner on the pedophile apologist's behalf ever since.
Presumably, the bankrupt in question is Ben & Dan Spiller of AE Media ... notwithstanding the fact that Milo's DEC 2017 tour organiser, Damien Costas (@PenthouseAU), is also facing personal bankruptcy for unpaid debts. #antifa#auspol#FCKNZS
Anyway, the racist shitkunce (Milo, Gavin McInnes, Stephen Yaxley-Lennon/'Tommy Robinson') are meant to be kicking off their tour of AUS in a little under two weeks in Perth (MAR 9); Costas is apparently appealing the Minister's 2018 decision to reject a visa app by McInnes >
> their fanboys are being urged to contact the Minister to lobby for visas to be approved for all three, & a decision is expected any day nao. Stirring up racist sentiment appears to be a key plank in the Tories' fed re-election campaign, so who knows what will come of it ...
#invasionDay#Melbourne Ricky Turner ('Cooks Convicts', below) & Garry Hume tried to cause a scene @ Flinders Street today, w/o much luck. You may remember Turner from when he accosted Police Minister Lisa Neville a coupla weeks ago (news.com.au/national/victo…).
Turner is also #BFFs w Andy Nolch, who was convicted last year of vandalising the memorial to murdered woman Eurydice Dixon -- Turner though Nolch's action was brilliant & a total yuk fest. Other claims to fame include paying a nocturnal visit to Catherine Deveny's house >
> last year & another to the house of rival right-wing provocateur Dave Pellowe (who organised the tour by AltRight figureheads Stefan Molyneux & Lauren Southern). Turner will be joining Neil Erikson & Richard Whelan in court in May over charges arising from the MILO stoopid.
Note that the same mob joined w the racist methgoblins of the True Blue Crew & private security company Asolate back in June 2017 to do similar.
It's highly unlikely that 'Kane Millzy' (Kane Miller, lvl boss of TBC) will be joining Mr Purton on this occasion as he has a court date on Friday, & another in FEB. Mind you, I saw him slap a cop @ #StKildaBeach & get away w it, so who knows ...
#StKildaBeach Re LT, it's worth noting a few things: first, that the *openly* neo-#Nazi grp, Antipodean Resistance, was actually *born out of* the 'United Patriots Front'; their first joint action was a v smol anti-Black Lives Matter rally in #Melbourne in July 2016. >
Secondly, the UPF is defunct, having been replaced by 'The Lads Society'. TLS has a social centre in Cheltenham in #Melbourne, another in Ashfield in Sydney (see @ActionAshfield), & is in the process of est itself in BRIS, CAN & PER. The principal reason that the UPF is defunct >
> is because, after several years of pumping out a constant stream of racist propaganda, @facebook eventually decided to shut its page. Again: #Facebook has been utterly critical to the development of the far-right in AUS over the preceding period, & remains so.
