- Update, June 13: OZtion has finally gotten around to closing Noble Front’s account. Either that, or Pollard has decided to cease selling on OZtion.
NSW police have raided a property outside Bathurst belonging to David Pollard, the owner of neo-Nazi online store Noble Front. In February, Pollard was the * attraction on Seven News in Sydney; Seven also accompanied police on the raid this morning (June 10, video). Armed with a search warrant for ‘racist propaganda’, police have apparently confiscated a range of materials, including computers. As a result, presumably — and assuming that this information was not available to them previously — they will now have in their possession details of anyone who’s ordered merchandise from Pollard in the past. Potential charges against Pollard would also presumably be brought under the terms of the (NSW) Anti Discrimination Act (1977).
Currently, while the Noble Front site catalogue is down, and has been for some months, Noble Front merchandise is available for sale at OZtion.com.au. Items include an SS and White Power patch; a Nazi Youth and SS flag; and — my personal favourite — the Deaths Head CD ‘Feast of the Jackal’.
- OZtion was founded by Philip Druce and Kelvin Yip in Melbourne in 2005. Together they identified the requirement for OZtion from working in the online industry and began to build a team to offer Australians an Australian online auction site. OZtion’s team now includes professionals in online trading, web site development, database systems, internet security and fraud prevention. It’s been heaps of fun and challenging building and running OZtion.
As noted previously, Deaths Head is a local Melbourne band, and closely associated with both Blood & Honour and the Hammerskins, international neo-Nazi networks. Vocalist Jesse maintains a channel on YouTube which features a number of Deaths Head videos, as well as two very brief cartoons featuring the decapitation and shooting of ‘Sheky’ the Jew. Deaths Head is also notable for having provided local oi! band Bulldog Spirit with a drummer, Joel. Doug, the vocalist for Bulldog Spirit, is a big fan of mine, and it was in this spirit that he published what he claimed (erroneously) to be my work address on an online forum frequented by boneheads.
