Hanson will share stage with Holocaust denier
February 15, 2007
ONE Nation founder Pauline Hanson plans to share a platform with a prominent denier of the Holocaust and a well-known neo-Nazi activist.
Ms Hanson will be a special guest next month [March 16–19] at the Inverell Forum [est. 1988], an annual talkfest in the NSW country town that has long been associated with right-wing extremist groups.
Ms Hanson announced in December that she hoped to resurrect her political career by standing as a candidate in this year’s federal election.
She will share the Inverell platform with Richard Krege, an Air Services Australia engineer who recently attended the Holocaust Conference in Tehran. The Iranian government-sponsored conference attempted to disprove the accepted historic fact that six million Jews were murdered by the Nazis during World War II.
Mr Krege is regarded by fellow Holocaust deniers as an expert on the notorious Treblinka concentration camp, in Poland. Although 800,000 Jews and others died there, he claims just 5000 perished of disease and none were killed.
The Inverell Forum website said the gathering would discuss the “current Zionist propaganda campaign designed to condition the public to accept the inevitable first attack on Iran”.
Ms Hanson will also share the platform with Welf Herfurth, a long-time activist with Germany’s neo-Nazi National Democratic Party [est. 1964] before he moved to Sydney.
[NB. Herfurth moved to Australia in 1987. He was also (allegedly) at one time the vice-president of the New South Wales state branch (under David Oldfield) of ONP; he was certainly president of ONP’s Riverstone branch, making Hanson and Herfurth old kameraden.]
Mr Herfurth will address the forum on “what other nationalists outside Germany can learn from the NPD’s practical approach to politics and creating a parallel society”.
Other speakers at the forum include James Cook University academic Bob Carter, a leading global warming sceptic.
Ms Hanson could not be reached for comment yesterday.
The forum will hear how “recent events in Australia have galvanised her once more into taking up the cudgel for patriotic Australia”.
Ms Hanson served a term in federal parliament when she was elected as the MP for Oxley in 1996.
Herr Herfurth truly is a busy little neo-Nazi bee. In addition to functioning as the NPD’s de facto Ambassador to Australia, Welf also enjoys the roles of “co-founder” / “Chairman” (alongside of Dr. James Saleam), of the annual Australia First Party conference the Sydney Forum, and organiser with the neo-Nazi amateur muzak organisation Blood & Honour (banned in Germany since 2000), most recently making the trip down from Sydney to Melbourne last September to enjoy the sights and sounds of neo-Nazi bands Bail Up!, Blood Red Eagle and Ultraviolence at The Birmingham Hotel.* NB. Word on the street is that the drummer for Bail Up! also drums for another local ‘skinhead’ band… although this could, of course, be BS.

Welf’s strategy for implanting an ‘Australian’ version of contemporary German neo-fascism is based on creating a kind of fascist counter-culture, one rooted in various marginal subcultures (such as that cobbled together by boneheads), but seeking to extend far beyond such groups — whose main function, in any case, is to act as cannon fodder for their middle-class, white-collar, and therefore more ‘respectable’ leaders — into some notion of the ‘mainstream’. In doing so, parties such as the NPD claim to be moving ‘beyond left and right’; but then again, that’s not the only thing they claim, and in reality the party is simply another neo-Nazi grouping, the largest in Germany.
One important aspect of the NPD’s political practice is the attempt to establish ‘foreigner-free’ or ‘no-go’ zones in small country towns, urban areas, and rural communities, a practice much remarked-upon at the time of last year’s World Cup, and mirrored in attempts by Australia First and their allies on Stormfront to eliminate blacks from towns — such as Tamworth and Toowoomba — and in their support for the ‘White uprising’ in Cronulla in December 2005. Sutherland Shire, it is argued, is a bastion of White Australia, and should remain that way; so too, rural Australia, which occupies a privileged position in the AFP’s racist phantasies as the embodiment of the true, White Australia of the past.
Another important, indeed crucial, aspect of the NPD’s strategy is to target yoof, especially through the establishment of ‘cultural communities’ centred on music. In this endeavour, in Australia and elsewhere, the NPD, AFP, and similar political formations have been aided greatly by the promotion of a kind of witless ‘patriotism’ by right-wing elements, one which seeks to supplant more critical voices within local punk and metal mileus with a form of fascist politic which masquerades as ‘working class’. And while the corporate assault on punk is massive and ongoing, some at least continue to resist the impositions of the state and the market on DIY culture, and thus continue to keep reactionary forces from completely destroying their autonomy.
- * The Birmingham Hotel is located at 333 Smith Street, on the intersection of Johnston Street and Smith Street (03 9417 2706). The license is held by Eighth Thelos // W. Simeoni Nominee, and the venue is managed by a bloke named Gary, who has a long history of booking neo-Nazi bands to perform at his venue. Despite numerous appeals, and a racial assault on a lone woman on the night of the gig, Yarra Council has yet to take any action regarding the existence of a neo-Nazi venue smack-bang in the middle of “multi-cultural” Fitzroy; presumably preferring to leave it up to members of the general community to close it down…
