Yeah Nah Pasaran! #047 w Zvi Dav on Autism Against Fascism : December 3, 2020

As part of 3CR’s special broadcast ‘Imagining Disability Justice’ for the International Day of People with a Disability, on this week’s episode of Yeah Nah, we talk to Zvi Dav of Autism Against Fascism:

The primary purpose of Autism Against Fascism (AAF) is to study and disrupt autistic involvement in white nationalist movements … AAF is the only project of its kind. When researchers on fascism are asked about this topic they tend to offer explanations based on a kind of unique autistic pathology rather than exploring the social forces which affect autistic people. This is despite the fact that most autistic people reject fascist ideologies. Autistic people, whether we are part of these dangerous white nationalist groups or fighting against these groups, deserve to be understood as real people with the capacity to make decisions, not victims of a pathology.

~~~ Please note that this week’s episode goes to air at 4.50pm ~~~

From Antipodean Resistance to the National Socialist Network

Yeah, I know: Australian neo-Nazi groupuscule ‘Antipodean Resistance’ (AR) has passed on, is no more, has ceased to be and has expired and gone to meet its maker; a stiff, bereft of life, it rests in peace. Fortunately for fans of dead foreign incestuous coprophiliac dictators, while AR is deaded, the ‘National Socialist Network’ (NSN) is alive!

Anyway.

I first made reference to AR back in December 2016, describing it as follows:

A new kid on the neo-Nazi bloc, AR evolved on tumblr and made a splash in October when the boys claim they plastered the Hawthorn campus of Swinburne University in homophobic propaganda. In early December, they threw up racist posters at the University of Melbourne. Modelled on National Action in the UK, and closely associated with other boys on the altright in Melbourne, it will presumably seek further publicity through staging similarly provocative stunts. Member/s attended a number of nationalist rallies in 2015–2016.

Since then, I’ve made further mention of these local Hitler Yoof, generally as and when their publicity stunts gained them some smol attention in meeja reportage. Hence in September 2017, following a splash in The Daily Telegraph, I wrote Who are Antipodean Resistance?, to which I made an update a year later — Who are Antipodean Resistance? (August 2018 Update) — noting that The White Rose Society had named Matthew Baston and Nathaniel Anderson as members. By the end of 2018, the AR webshite had deaded, sadly, and the group appears to have gone AWOL. Of course, I’d also nominated a local geek called Jacob Hersant as a YUGE Holocaust fan; a dedicated re-enactor, Hersant has since re-emerged as the spokesperson for the NSN, the groupuscule into which AR collapsed.

In April 2019, summarising AR’s stellar career, I wrote:

One of the newer kids on the neo-Nazi bloc, AR evolved on tumblr and made a splash in late 2016 when the lads plastered university campuses in homophobic propaganda. Modelled on National Action in the UK and Atomwaffen in the US, and closely associated with other boys on the AltRight in Melbourne, as predicted in December 2016, it did indeed obtain lots of ‘further publicity through staging similarly provocative stunts’ — at last count, something like 80 or more ‘actions’ have been staged since then, though the group’s webshite has been closed and their gab account has been inactive since late last year.

Later that year, the contents of (defunct) neo-Nazi website Iron March was made public. The publication of this data provided an interesting insight into AR and the milieu of angwy young men from which it was drawn (see : Iron March Leaks : Aussie Pride Edition (1) (November 10, 2019) and Iron March Leaks : Aussie Pride Edition (2) (February 28, 2020)); also recommended is bellingcat’s dive into Transnational White Terror: Exposing Atomwaffen And The Iron March Networks (December 19, 2019). As noted previously, AR:

… has its origins on tumblr and on neo-Nazi website ‘Iron March’ (IM), with two young fellows from Melbourne, one using the handle ‘kehlsteinhaus’ (‘Eagle’s Nest’: a Nazi-era building erected atop the summit of the Kehlstein, a rocky outcrop that rises above the Obersalzberg near the town of Berchtesgaden), and the other ‘Xav’, forming its core.

Hersant used the handle ‘Vandal Nationalist’, Anderson ‘HalArts’ and Baston ‘Xav’ on IM, where they were joined by several other notables, including Lisa Beulah/Sandford, Shermon Burgess (Reclaim Australia and the United Patriots Front) and Matthew Grant (an ‘esoteric racial Presbyterian’ of the ‘Eureka Youth League’: the Australia First Party’s alleged yoof wing).

Douglas Paterson : not often described as “charismatic”

One other participant was ‘kehlsteinhaus’:

On March 2, 2016, ‘kehlsteinhaus’ wrote by way of introduction to IM that he was 22yo, unemployed, and interested in creating an Australian version of [National Action]. Originally from Perth, he now resides in Melbourne. ‘kehlsteinhaus’ also claims to have been a ‘communist’, a ‘democratic socialist’, to have attended meetings and rallies organised by Socialist Alternative, but most recently to have been involved with the UPF. And, like Blair Cottrell and Neil Erikson, he also claims to be a member or former member of the Melbourne-based neo-Nazi grouplet ‘Nationalist Alternative’ (NAlt). According to ‘kehlsteinhaus’, ‘Blair and Thomas [Sewell] are full 14/88. I’ve met and talked to them in person many times. They’ve recently converted [Chris] Shortis, who now thinks Hitler was right about pretty much everything. [Scott] Moreland [sic] is shit. [Dennis] Huts is a mixed bag.’

And so on and so forth.

According to his LinkedIn, Douglas attended Wesley College in Perth (motto: Audendo Atque Agendo: Latin for “By Daring & By Doing”) in 2010–2011 but failed to complete a degree in politics and international relations at Edith Cowan University in 2013–2014, after which he moved to Melbourne. Recently, Douglas was a business student at Swinburne University, but would seemed to have gained his diploma earlier this year. Oddly enough, both AR and NSN have got up to funny business at this institute for higher learning.

October 2016:

A neo-Nazi poster urging people to gun down gay and transgender people has been plastered on Swinburne University’s walls, raising fears the toxic homophobic campaign was triggered by the plebiscite debate.

Students arriving at the university’s Hawthorn campus on Monday morning were confronted with an illustration of a skeletal man wearing a T-shirt reading “Gay and Proud”, with a bullet through his head. The poster, which included a swastika, was titled “Get the sodomite filth off our streets”.

July 2020:

A neo-Nazi group dressed in black with their faces covered have been pictured flashing the Hitler salute at the Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne.

The National Socialist Network, which advocates white supremacy, posted the image to Russian-based social media network VK with the caption “Swinburne for the White Man”.

It thanked “the student body and faculty” for allowing them to come on campus to advance their far-right agenda “without opposition”.

Douglas did, however, receive an endorsement from Matthew Looke who — according to The White Rose Society — was good chums with ‘Eva’ (AKA Lisa Beulah/Sandford), attending her engagement party in Canberra to fellow neo-Nazi Justin Beulah. Hence:

Our source told us that earlier in the year Ben Puckett had attended the engagement party of Neo-Nazis Lisa Sandford and Justin Beulah. Ben was familiar with guests of Lisa and Justin’s who were later revealed to be part of the branch stacking of NSW Young Nationals, or who we know hold far-right views. Some of the guests in attendance were NSW Young Nationals members like Xanthe Winter and Neo-Nazi Nicholas Walker (pressured to resign after the ABC Background Briefing investigation was published), fascist Steele Archer and Neo-Nazis Matthew Looke and Marlon Vrancic.

TL;DR : AR collapsed into NSN (a projekt of Tom Sewell’s grouplet ‘The Lads Society’), but is Carrying On in much the same fashion; I’ll publish some further deets on the network’s membership and activities at some point in the future. In the meantime, you can thank Douglas Paterson and Matthew Baston for kick-starting this latest failed brownshirt maneuver.

OANN has been energetic throughout Trump’s presidency in pushing any narrative that might favor his interests, including numerous baseless conspiracy theories. They gave credence to every signature Trumpist falsehood: that George Soros both funded a so-called refugee “caravan” and collaborated with Nazis as a teenager; that there was no chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria, in 2018; that Parkland mass shooting survivor David Hogg had been “coached” for his media appearances by his father, a former FBI agent.

token, trump-related post

news dot com dot au got worry that a ‘Nightmare scenario’ would see ‘Trump street gangs’ fight back after US election result (Rohan Smith, November 2, 2020); which — with the God Emperor’s blessing — is ah, certainly a possibility. But anyway, my attention was drawn to the following passage:

Eleanore Wells, a black woman who appeared on Q&A in September and compared the US President to Adolf Hitler, told the panel: “I’m not the first person, even if I had compared him to Hitler. You’ve seen there are dozens of articles.”

But Salvatore Babones, a political sociologist from the University of Sydney rejected the comparison.

“I did watch the show you were on last time and while I respect the sincerity of your feelings, you talked about the potential for a new rise of fascism in America and Trump as the new Hitler and whenever I hear that kind of rhetoric, forgive me, I just tend to roll my eyes at the ahistorical nature of it.

“When Mussolini in Italy seized power he marched on Rome and laid out a book on fascism, laying out his plan. When Hitler took power, he was unsuccessful and went to jail and wrote a book called Mein Kampf, laying out his history. But we don’t have that in America.”

I missed that episode of The Bad Show (September 21, 2020), but computer says:

ELEANORE WELLS
My question for the panel is, regardless of whether Trump wins or not, has he shown a much smarter autocrat how it’s done? Like, could we have another Hitler or some other horrendous… It doesn’t seem far-fetched to me. I’m worried…

HAMISH MACDONALD
That’s a pretty extreme comparison to draw.

ELEANORE WELLS
Is it?

HAMISH MACDONALD
Well, Hitler…

ELEANORE WELLS
Is it?

HAMISH MACDONALD
Hitler was responsible for the death of six million Jews.

ELEANORE WELLS
Is it extreme? I don’t think it’s extreme because…

HAMISH MACDONALD
Trump hasn’t done anything like that.

ELEANORE WELLS
Hitler didn’t start out this big. It was a small thing and it grew. So just… Let me finish. So, he… We don’t know at what point in the trajectory it is. But it doesn’t sound far-fetched to me at all.

HAMISH MACDONALD
OK. Cole?

COLE BROWN
Yeah, I actually… I totally agree. I mean, you know, Hitler obviously has been mentioned as a major and extreme example. But the sort of descent into fascism, the descent into chaos is a gradual one. And in the history of empires, America is not that old. So, I think that this understanding, this sort of belief that the music will keep playing forever and we’ll stay… That’s just not true. I think democracies ultimately decline when they’re not tended to. And…and…what’s happening right now, you’re seeing sort of day in and day out as precedent is violated, Donald Trump sort of dismantling that democracy.

HAMISH MACDONALD
Barbara, Trump as an autocrat – do you buy that characterisation?

BARBARA HEINEBACK
No. Let’s look at a couple of things. I too am an American, love America, always vote. I… There are few things that I get excited about as much as my vote. But America started on what I think of as the three big Cs – Christianity, the US Constitution and also… What’s the third one? Christianity, US Constitution…

HAMISH MACDONALD
You really need to remember the third one, Barbara, you’re on live television.

BARBARA HEINEBACK
…and also capitalism. I sound like Mitt Romney now, right? I’m going to get rid of these two. And the other is, you know, also the…capitalism. But even though I’m an independent, and I have been for many, many years, most of the time, I voted with the Democrats. But I feel like what the Democrat Party was many years ago, I didn’t leave those ideals and ideologies, I feel like the Democratic Party has left me. Why do we have so much black-on-black crime in these cities that Obama wouldn’t talk about? We had a Democratic convention just a couple of weeks ago. From May 25th, Black Lives Matter – that’s when George Floyd was killed and held down for 8.5 minutes – he was killed, and from May 25th, right through the Democratic Convention, not one word. That was in August, the third week in August, just a couple of weeks ago. Not one mention of the demonstrations, and all of the terror that it has caused in so many cities, was mentioned at all. And depending on what station you watch, you didn’t see a lot of the violence on CNN and other stations. You look at a few channels, and if you look around…

COLE BROWN
No.

BARBARA HEINEBACK
…you could see where there were killings and thugs and all.

HAMISH MACDONALD
I’m just going to bring Kylie in here…

So yeah. As for Salvatore Babones, I confess to not having examined his scholarship on Trump, Hitler or Nazi Germany, but was delighted to discover that Polity, ‘The home of independent thinking’, has indeed published The New Authoritarianism, Trump, Populism, and the Tyranny of Experts. This weighty tome has its own, dedicated website and it’s been endorsed by Milo Yiannopoulos fan Janet Albrechtsen, David ‘God Save The Queen’ Flint and Some Guy writing for Quadrant.

Still, I admit to being perplexed by the notion that: a) ‘when Mussolini in Italy seized power he marched on Rome and laid out a book on fascism, laying out his plan’ and; b) ‘When Hitler took power, he was unsuccessful and went to jail and wrote a book called Mein Kampf, laying out his history’. Thus:

What was the book Benito ‘laid out’ (and how?) in October 1922? Assuming somesuch book exists, what does it mean for the claim, made by a number of historians, that Mussolini actually failed or refused to impose a rigid orthodoxy on his movement? Further, that there were, in fact, a number of leading Fascist ideologues propounding various theories as to its essential qualities?

As for the Austrian painter, as far as I’m aware, Hitler and the Nazis assumed power in 1933, not 1924, and it was in 1924, not 1933, that he wrote a li’l book about his ‘history’ — and er, political vision.

As for the God Emperor, it’s true that El Presidente had someone ghostwrite The Art of the Deal, and on that basis alone it hardly constituted much of a struggle for the very stable genius to compose. By the same token, while his New York Times bestseller doesn’t really constitute a political manifesto, I’m not sure a fascist demagogue requires such a text in order to qualify as one.

Yeah Nah Pasaran! #043 w Graham Macklin on Failed Führers: A History of Britain’s Extreme Right : November 5, 2020

On this week’s episode of Yeah Nah, we talk to Graham Macklin [Twitter]. Graham is an historian at the Center for Research on Extremism (C-REX): The Extreme Right, Hate Crime, and Political Violence at the University of Oslo. He also co-edits Routledge’s Fascism & Far Right Book Series and the journals Patterns of Prejudice and Fascism: Journal of Comparative Fascist Studies.

Graham’s latest book is Failed Führers: A History of Britain’s Extreme Right (Routledge, 2020), which:

provides a comprehensive history of the ideas and ideologues associated with the racial fascist tradition in Britain. It charts the evolution of the British extreme right from its post-war genesis after 1918 to its present-day incarnations, and details the ideological and strategic evolution of British fascism through the prism of its principal leaders and the movements with which they were associated.

Taking a collective biographical approach, the book focuses on the political careers of six principal ideologues and leaders, Arnold Leese (1878–1956); Sir Oswald Mosley (1896–1980); A.K. Chesterton (1899–1973); Colin Jordan (1923–2009); John Tyndall (1934–2005); and Nick Griffin (1959–), in order to study the evolution of the racial ideology of British fascism, from overtly biological conceptions of ‘white supremacy’ through ‘racial nationalism’ and latterly to ‘cultural’ arguments regarding ‘ethno-nationalism’.

Drawing on extensive archival research and often obscure primary texts and propaganda as well as the official records of the British government and its security services, this is the definitive historical account of Britain’s extreme right and will be essential reading for all students and scholars of race relations, extremism and fascism.

Oh yeah. YUGE shout-out to Alexander Rud Mills (AKA ‘Tasman Forth’: 1885–1964), the local fella who not only interviewed Adolf Hitler in 1932 but also introduced Odinism to Britain’s leading Nazi camel doctor — and founder of the Imperial Fascist League — Arnold Leese:

This increasing attempt to historicise Nazism and emphasise its ‘British’ roots was also reflected in Leese’s growing interest in racialised paganism. He had cultivated such ideas through contact with Melbourne solicitor Alexander Rud Mills, an early evangelist for a racialised variant of Odinism, the spiritual backbone of a revitalised ‘British race’.
