‘Diversity’ by Belgian reich ‘n’ rollers Kill Baby Kill. The band toured Australia in 2008; Dieter Samoy, the lead shouter, committed suicide in January after being sentenced to several years jail for assault. Blood & Honour and the Hammerskins, the neo-Nazi networks responsible for organising the tour, will be presenting some more foreign bands this weekend in Melbourne. The site on which the vid was originally produced was known as podblanc.com: the site’s creator, Craig Cobb, is a Creatard, and was last year deported from Estonia to the US…
Blood & Honour / Combat 18 / Hammerskins / Volksfront
Anti-Racist Canada reports that the subject of the newly-launched ‘Combat 18’-aligned neo-Nazi skinhead network ‘Blood & Honour’ has generated some rather heated disco on Stormfront of late, with Canadian moderator Dan Martin (‘OdinPatrick’) coming down firmly on the other side of the dispute; that is, the Hammerskin- (and Volksfront-) aligned B&H. According to Martin and other Jew-hatin’ critics, C18 is a terrorist group, and its actions damage the White nationalist cause. Sadly, Martin fails to explain how he reconciles this claim with the fact that Stormfront is owned by a convicted terrorist named Don Black.
The Canadian B&H/C18 has as its fuehrer a meathead called John Marleau, previously the fuehrer of another mob called the Aryan Guard (AG). One of the few groups to take up the call by Australian White supremacists to celebrate the ‘International Day for the Elimination of Racism’ (March 21) as ‘White Pride World Wide’ (WPWW) Day, the AG had a few brief moments in the spotlight before falling apart in a bout of internecine warfare. The AG was also one of many fascist groups supported by Canadian Holocaust denialist Paul Fromm, currently meant to be on tour in Australia.
The ‘debate’ in Canada follows the sentencing last month of B&H/C18 Australia member Bradley Trappitt for crimes arising from his involvement in a shooting incident at a Perth mosque. Like Trappitt, Stormfront Down Under moderator Paul Innes (‘Steelcap Boot’) is from Perth. An attempt by the West Australian branch of B&H to organise a gig on ANZAC Day last year was unsuccessful as one of the bands — Indigenous Hate — decided to throw its weight behind B&H/C18. The angry Aryan pop group, like C18, appears to have disbanded, but it’s likely only a matter of time before something similar re-emerges.
The Hammerskin and Volksfront franchises in Australia appear to be fairly stable, with the former group organising a gig in Melbourne on Grand Final Day. Elsewhere, Mário Machado, the leader of the Portuguese Hammerskins, was last month sentenced to seven years and two months jail for the crimes of coercion, robbery, kidnapping and illegal possession of weapons, while a member of Volksfront in the US, Corey J. Miller, got into some minor trouble in July; in May, one of his kameraden, John Edward Grogan, got sentenced to 5 years jail for defacing a synagogue (in April 2009).

Melbourne-based Patrick O’Sullivan — who, posting as ‘RAHOWA NOW’, leaps to the defence of C18 — is the contact point for ‘The Creativity Movement’ in Australia. O’Sullivan has few followers aside from the homeless yoof he periodically recruits, but a coupla pinheads were spotted recently distroing his agitprop in Wellington (Aotearoa/New Zealand). In this case, supply could easily said to be exceeding demand. Nevertheless, last year, a rival faction of Creatards emerged in Victoria when Scott Harrison, the racist teenybopper, and former friend of O’Sullivan, decided to swap his ‘anarchist’ label for an openly and unapologetically White supremacist one. Based in Geelong, and studying at Deakin University, it’s likely that Harrison’s current infatuation will be replaced by another before too long. In Sydney, the teenybopper’s former leader Welf Herfurth — aka ‘New Right Australia & New Zealand’ — has been busy helping to develop the local franchise of Volksfront. His main ally in this endeavour is Chris Smith, who represents the interests of the Creatards in New South Wales, and is formally allied with Harrison.
Elsewhere, boneheads belonging to ‘Right Wing Resistance New Zealand’ have been complaining about police harassment. Although the reasons why remain unspecified, if they’re anything like other fascist vigilantes, it’ll likely be as a result of either: a) drugs; b) domestic violence or; c) public violence. Kyle Chapman, the leader of RWRNZ, was featured on Kiwi TV recently (Marc Ellis’ How the Other Half Lives), in his role as leader of another mob called ‘Survive Club’, a Whites-only group preparing for the coming Armageddon. By mutual agreement, the episode made no reference to Chapman’s decades-long involvement in far right politics.
As well as being fueher of the ‘New Zealand National Front’ (NZNF), Chapman was also, briefly, a signatory to an accord with the ‘Australia First Party’, whose annual conference took place this weekend in Sydney. Among those speaking at the event was the Canadian neo-Nazi Paul Fromm, a Holocaust denialist who participated in AG events in Canada and who is currently running for Mayor of Mississauga.
The 2010 Sydney Forum done come and gone, with relatively little fanfare. Presumably, things went swimmingly for da fash, while Sydney-based businessman, Volksfront organiser, and Master of Race Ceremonies Welf Herfurth ran a friendly but tight ship. Nevertheless, some Sydney-siders did apparently decide to hold some kinda rally in opposition to the Forum on the Sunday, across the road from the venue @ The Bunker:
In his 10th straight year at university but flush with his dead father’s cash, Jim Saleam bought a house at 725 Princes Highway, Tempe, for $90,000. It was 1983 and this grim little terrace, along the main trucking route to Port Botany and just beyond Sydney airport’s runways, has been the Australian headquarters for hate politics ever since.
Happily, the NSW police were kind enough to provide a security detail for the event, one which also apparently outnumbered protesters, who were noticeable largely by their absence. (Or rather, I had difficulty spotting them from my helicopter.) Police were also kept active in Newtown as “Newtown square/The Hub was occupied … by anarchists, anti-authoritarians, antifascists and people in solidarity to make a demonstration against the Sydney Fascist Forum happening this weekend in Tempe” (Anti-fascist Occupation of Newtown Square, Indymedia Australia, September 19, 2010).
On October 9, anti-Muslim fanatics have declared that they’ll be assembling at the Sydney Opera House for a special performance of Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen — or, possibly, to mill about complaining about all them Mooselems dey tuk er jerbs. The rally is being organised by the ‘Australian Defence League’, whose previous attempt to organise a rally in Melbourne in April was truly farcical. “Australia or Islamania? It’s Our Choice!” is the winning slogan for October 9, and if more than a handful of whinging Poms choo-choose to rock up @ the tourist attraction in Sydney it will be considered, presumably, a triumph.

Neo-Nazi MMA fighter Niko Puhakka successfully invaded Poland’s KSW XIV over the weekend. Puhakka defeated Danny van Bergen in his first match, and Borys Mańkowski in his second. As a result of his wins, the bonehead will invade Poland again for KSW XV. Puhakka has changed his MySpace page to ‘Private’ in recent months, so precisely which other Übermensch he’s mates with, and how he’s coping with the demise of ‘Kill Baby Kill’, is unknown, but he continues to wear both a Life Rune and B&H tattoo on his chest and therefore, it would seem, his Nazi heart on his sleeve.
