Somebody, presumably in the UK, has been following the illustrious career of neo-Nazi entrepreneur Wilf (Will) Browning rather closely. Of late, the former leader of Combat 18, owner of ISD (Ian Stuart Donaldson) Records and lead
shouter guitarist in the band No Remorse has been busy making money by way of Iron Age Records, a black metal label. Apparently, Iron Age has been selling their merch and muzak through HMV, which is a significant advance on Browning and ISD’s usual outlets. (In November 2009, Browning — along with fellow nutzi Jon Denny-Mallen — was acquitted of distributing racist shite by a British court.)
In Australia, Combat 18 most recently made the news by way of former WA policeman Robert Critchley, who was convicted earlier in December of informing Perth members of the group that they were the subject of covert police surveillance. In September, the terror machine also apparently wheeled into action at a primary skool in Illawarra: “Children at Pleasant Heights primary arrived on Monday to find swastikas and Nazi slogans spray-painted on walls, doors and even drinking water bubblers. “Heil Hitler” was painted on one wall, with insignia of white supremacist group Combat 18″ (Primary school ‘tagged’ with Nazi messages, Ben Langford, Illawarra Mercury, September 8, 2011).
Still, while spray-painting the walls of a primary skool with neo-Nazi tags may be considered unpleasant, it’s not nearly as unpleasant as murder, and last week in the US a bonehead belonging to Blood & Honour was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the deaths of two homeless men. Skinhead Sentenced To Life For Murder Of Two Homeless Men In Tampa, December 21, 2011:
U.S. Attorney Robert E. O’Neill announces that U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Kovachevich today sentenced James Robertson (32, Tampa) to life in federal prison for the 1998 murders of two homeless men. Robertson was found guilty of two counts of murder in aid of racketeering by a jury on October 18, 2011.
According to testimony and evidence presented at trial, Robertson was a member of “Tampa Blood and Honour,” a hate group whose members espoused the belief that white persons of Aryan descent were the superior race. Tampa Blood and Honour members considered the homeless to be an inferior class, regardless of race. “Bum rolling” was a term used by Tampa Blood and Honour members to describe the activity of targeting and committing acts of violence against homeless persons.
Specifically, in the early morning hours of September 13, 1998, Robertson and three other members (Kenneth Hoover, Charles Marovskis, and Cory Hulse) of Tampa Blood and Honour murdered two homeless men – Mr. Alfred Williams and Mr. Richard Arseneau. Mr. Williams was murdered in downtown Tampa, Florida, under the Crosstown Expressway, in the vicinity of Meridian Street. Robertson and the other Tampa Blood and Honour members severely beat Mr. Williams with, among other things, a tire-iron. Mr. Arseneau was also murdered in Tampa, near the intersection of Interstate 275 and Fletcher Avenue. The murder occurred in a wooded lot located east of 320 East Fletcher Avenue. Robertson, along with the same three Blood and Honour members, also beat Mr. Arseneau to death. As a result of the beating, Mr. Arseneau sustained massive head injuries, at least some of which were caused by a hatchet. According to the medical examiner, the cause of death for both victims was blunt force trauma to the head.
Also in October, another member of the Master Race was exposed in a British tabloid (Joanne Butcher, Walker Nazi worshipper exposed as paedophile, Sunday Sun, October 23, 2011):
HATE filled Nazi nut Michael Cowen strutted the streets as a tattooed hardman… But today the Sunday Sun exposes him as nothing but a vile paedophile.
A worshipper of Hitler and the far right, the hulking 43-year-old strutted around as a henchman for extreme organisations.
His North home was a sickening shrine to the Nazis with displays of Swastikas, an SS flag and even a cannister of Zyklon B – the cyanide gas used to kill millions.
But behind this swaggering macho image hid his other horribly twisted obsession – a hateful passion for the abuse of little boys and girls.
For Cowen had a horrifying picture library of tens of thousands of indecent images of youngsters stored on his computers.
The secret stash of shame was discovered after he ordered extremist CDs by racist “Blood and Honour” rock groups.
Undercover officers intercepted them on their way to Cowen’s home in Losh Terrace, Walker in Newcastle’s East End.
The disks included bands with names like Ethnic Cleansing and Hate Crime, and featured tracks such as “Freezer Full of ****** Heads”, “Multicultural Take Over” and “Make Them Die Slowly”.
Also in the stash were CD sleeves, with pictures of human remains, beaten and battered bodies, and people who appeared to have been shot, as well as swastikas…
In Melbourne, national socialist black metal (NSBM) is being reinvigorated by way of Jack Gareth Sansom’s label and promo ‘White Noise’, which organised a gig at The Tote in December. Sansom works in close collaboration with local neo-Nazi skinheads, and to celebrate Hitler’s birthday in April the Australian Blood & Honour and Hammerskins’ franchises will be holding a gig in Brisbane. Aryan Supermen from around Australia (and even overseas) can order B&H merch and neo-Nazi agit-prop — including Freezer Full of N****r Heads — from 9% Productions, online or at the gig.
Also expected to be in attendance at Hitler’s birthday party are the handful of Aryan ladies belonging to the Australian chapter of Women for Aryan Unity. In summarising their activities for the year 2011, WAU write that “[a]long with one of our sisters in the USA we have taken over the Adopt A Bruder program (which provides financial support to the remaining incarcerated former members of Der Bruder Schweigen or The Order as they were more commonly known)”. You may remember Der Bruder Schweigen from such political assassinations as that of DJ Alan Berg in June, 1984. Happily, WAU “are truly honoured to be a part of this program and to provide such support to men who gave up everything for our folk.”

Dear Leadership Crisis
In the US, Dear Leader’s recent tragic death seems to have exposed rifts among the former General Secretary and golfing expert‘s tiny handful of followers. Better (or worse) yet, one mob has accused the other mob of being subject to neo-Nazi/anti-Semitic/white nationalist/white racialist influence. Thus one of my favourite micro-parties — the completely batshit Rural People’s Party — has been accused by another micro-sect — the North American Juche-Songun Ideas Study Group — of being controlled by nutzis, the main villain in the piece being one Joshua Caleb Sutter. See : ON RECENT ATTACKS AGAINST US AND EXPOSING THE TRUE ENEMIES OF SOCIALISM : AGAINST JOHN PAUL CUPP, JOSHUA CALEB SUTTER, AND JAMES PORRAZZO.
Apart from anything else, this may explain why the RPP has failed to update its website since December 2009.
The red-brown aspect on the political spectrum has a fascinating history, parts of which are ably documented by Kevin Coogan in his monumental 1999 study of the fast life and crazy times of Francis Parker Yockey, and some others in Martin A. Lee’s 1997 book The Beast Reawakens (the Anti-National Translation and Who Makes the Nazis? blog/sites also contain lotsa useful infos). In Australia, elements of the red and the brown have been trailing various foreign dictators and authoritarian regimes for some time. While an honourable mention must be given to the relationship between the ALP and Mubarak’s regime, of particular note — tho’ seemingly, and very sadly, absent from the fray in recent years — is the career trajectory of national socialist Robert Pash, co-founder of conspiracy zine New Dawn. Pash “acknowledges he flirted with extreme-Right politics as a teenager but says he abandoned those beliefs more than 15 years ago. Today [sic], Pash is director of the Libyan Arab Cultural Centre in Melbourne, and New Dawn‘s editor, David Jones, describes his political roots as pro-Arab Left” (‘The plot thickens’, Richard Guilliatt, The Sydney Morning Herald, May 24, 1997). In 1989 (‘New-age nazism’, Matthew Kalman and John Murray, New Statesman, June 23, 1995):
…[Duncan] Roads [publisher of Nexus zine] visited Gadaffi in Libya. According to Australian journalist David Greason, he is a close friend of the rightwing Libyaphile Robert Pash. Pash was the Australian contact for the “Aryan Nations” network in the late 1970s. In the late 1980s, he was the Australian distributor for Gadaffi’s Green Book, and was in contact with the National Front, acting as a conduit for their attempts to make political common cause with the Libyan regime. Alan Myers, of Australia’s Green Left Weekly, says that Pash is also part of the Australian League of Rights, the ultra-right anti-Semitic organisation, of which Donald Martin is the British arm.
In the 1990s, Pash moved from Libya to North Korea, and the “Libyan Arab Cultural Centre” became the “Australian Association for the Study of the Juche Idea”. Moar blah on Pash’s divers political passions can be found in Denis Freney’s scurrilous tract ‘Raiders of the Left Ark’ (in which the GLW also gets a guernsey). Of course, Gaddafi’s influence also extended to the far left, and in particular Gerry Healy’s sect the Workers’ Revolutionary Party, a party probably most famous for attracting the support of the * of stage and screen Vanessa Redgrave. In the 1980s, the WRP allegedly made a nasty habit of seeking financial support from Arab regimes, in exchange for both mad props in the WRP press and infos on their opponents…
