I’m beginning to believe that Kerry Bolton really does have !cinataS powers. Or rather, that the crackademic authorities at the University of Waikato in Aotearoa/New Zealand do.
Last October — that is, four months ago — Roel Van Leeuwen’s 2008 MA thesis — ‘Dreamers of the Dark: Kerry Bolton and the Order of the Left Hand Path, a Case-study of a Satanic/Neo-Nazi Synthesis’ — got pulled, following a complaint lodged by Kiwi nutzi Kerry Bolton.
And it’s still unavailable at the University library (see below).
Fortunately, his thesis is available online (via Scribd):
The title of Van Leeuwen’s thesis is reminiscent of Kevin Coogan’s excellent biography of Francis Parker Yockey, Dreamer of the Day: Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International (Autonomedia, New York, 1999). Loren Goldner’s review (available here), like Coogan’s text, is a valuable account of the meanderings of fascist ideology in the post-WWII period. Also of interest is Coogan’s review How Black is Black Metal?:
Lords of Chaos (LOC), a recent book-length examination of the “Satanic” black metal music scene, is less concerned with sound than fury. Authors Michael Moynihan and Didrik Sederlind zero in on Norway, where a tiny clique of black metal musicians torched some churches in 1992. The church burners’ own place of worship was a small Oslo record store called Helvete (Hell). Helvete was run by the godfather of Norwegian black metal, 0ystein Aarseth (“Euronymous”, or “Prince of Death”), who first brought black metal to Norway with his group Mayhem and his Deathlike Silence record label…
“Michael Moynihan is an interesting fellow”, writes Kevin, and so are the other odds and sods associated with various forms of ‘cultural fascism’. Unfortunately, but perhaps unsurprisingly, all seem to share a desire for notoriety which exists in inverse proportion to their talents. Speakiing of the Devil…
Kerry Bolton (1956–): A former NZ Nazi Party member, Bolton is a highly-entertaining fascist bozo, having been a member of numerous other political formations: the National Front (1978), Church of Odin (1980), New Force (1981), Nationalist Workers Party (1983), Fascist Union (1998), Workers’ Front (1999), and others. Bolton also helped form the New Zealand New Right (not to be confused with Welf Herfurth’s New Right Australia & New Zealand). Most recently, Unkle Kerry signed his name to ‘The ANZAC Declaration: Australia First Party And New Zealand Nationalist Alliance: Declaration Of Common Interests And Future Relations’ (April 25, 2008), joining fellow nutzis (‘For Australia’) Brendan Gidley, Jim Saleam, Neil Baird and (‘For New Zealand’) Kyle Chapman and Anton Foljambe.
Aside from the fearsomely powerful Kerry, a number of the other signatories to the Trans-Tasman fascist pact have been having some of their own awfully big adventures. Dr. Jim, for example, has declared that the “Australia First Party will demonstrate at the Coroner’s Court when an investigation is held into Tyler’s Cassidy’s death“; his shooting to death — like Herr Doktor’s jailing for organising a shotgun assault upon the home of Australasian ANC representative Eddie Funde in 1989 — was apparently the result of an elaborate conspiracy on the part of the state to silence the ‘White Nationalist’ movement. Kyle Chapman, on the other hand, has been in the news (and the racial wars) following his announcement that he had a cunning plan to construct a Whites Only (Nie-Blankes!) pie shop in North Canterbury.
Chapman’s vision of pies aplenty for Nice White Families is mirrored in fellow Stormfronter Paul Innes’ desire to construct a ‘Pioneer Little Europe’ in the Perth foothills. Presumably, as part of his attempt to whip up support for his nutty scheme, Paul will attend the upcoming gig being organised by fellow nutzis Blood & Honour Australia and the Southern Cross Hammerskins. The gig is scheduled for ANZAC Day, and the boneheads will be celebrating the deaths of Australian (and New Zealand) soldiers in WWII by way of getting paralytic drunk while listening to the soothing sounds of Ravenous, Quick & the Dead and Indigenous Hate.
They’re a weird mob.
Thesis probe delay angers
January 31, 2009
The author of a thesis pulled by Waikato University last October is angry that it remains off library shelves.
The masters thesis, which explores Satanist and neo-Nazi themes, was removed from the university library without warning at the beginning of October following a complaint by the subject of the research, former National Front secretary Kerry Bolton.
By mid October, two top academics had been appointed to review the processes around the thesis and a defamation complaint amid accusations of university censorship.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Roy Crawford said yesterday he had received the report and would not make any further comment until he had read it.
The author of the thesis, philosophy and religious studies student Roel Van Leeuwen, told the Waikato Times this week he was not happy with the way the investigation was being handled.
“I was given a reassurance that it would take a couple of weeks. It’s now been months and months,” Mr Leeuwen said.
Mr Leeuwen, who has stood by his research from the start, was “profoundly unhappy” that his thesis remained off library shelves.
He said he had put a lot of work into the thesis, for which he received top marks.
While he understood that the university had to investigate the complaint, he said it had “gone on too long”.
Mr Bolton has repeatedly claimed that the thesis was riddled with errors and was no more than a personal smear.
“Its having passed with honours is a scandal,” he told The Times last year.
Speaking from his home in Wellington yesterday Mr Bolton said he told the university that he would not comment further to the media until after the investigation process was completed.
“The last I heard from them (the university) was before Christmas when they apologised for the delay,” he said.
Note that University of Waikato Vice-Chancellor Roy Crawford is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering, whose primary research interest has been in the mechanical properties and processing behaviour of plastics. Announcing Professor Crawford’s appointment in May 2004, Waikato’s Chancellor John Gallagher said: “His research and business skills and experience, coupled with his very high-level academic experience, make him the ideal person to lead the university, particularly at a time when research performance affects our funding and we are looking to start up more businesses based on university-developed intellectual property. His track record in establishing spin-out [!] companies and other outlets for technology transfer is impressive.”
His reading abilities, on the other hand…
