Large police presence at far-right demo to prevent clashes with counter-protesters in Germany

About 200 far-right activists marched through the town of Goslar, Lower Saxony, this Saturday to mark the so-called ‘Day of the German Future’ (TDDZ). The Neo-Nazis were met by a large counter-demonstration outside Goslar’s main train station. A large police presence was on the scene to prevent the two sides from clashing. Both demonstrations passed off peacefully.

Neo-Nazis Let A Journalist In Their Group — Here’s What He Saw

Journalist Vegas Tenold, who embedded himself into different Neo-Nazi groups, explains some key points in the alt-right movement, including their participation in online forums and social media such as 4chan and Twitter. Tenold claims the alt-right movement is smaller than we think and that most of this movement’s action lives online. Following is a transcript of the video.

[Crowd] Replace us. You will not replace us. You will not replace us.

Vegas Tenold: My first encounter was with the National Socialist Movement, which is the largest Neo-Nazi group in America.

This journalist embedded himself with White Nationalist groups in America.

Vegas Tenold: After that, I started traveling with some various Klan groups, and then I met Matthew Heimbach, who became the main character of my book.

Matthew Heimbach leads the political party Traditionalist Worker Party.

Matthew Heimbach: Our movement is about securing the existence of our people, and a future for white children. All of us are engaged in this struggle. And much like a military, there is positions for everyone.

Vegas Tenold: Many other people, they come from poor, rural, and predominantly white parts of America, Appalachia. And they look around and they see that their neighbors and their friends are suffering under opioid addiction, that they have no jobs, and no prospects. And they kind of extrapolate from that then that must be what it’s like for white people all over. They don’t have the ability to kind of lift their gaze a little bit, because if they did, I think they’d see that white people on the whole, especially white men, who this movement is mostly consisting of, have it pretty good.

The gatherings are a lot smaller, and you know, that’s the inherent problem in the far right, sort of alt-right. It’s a movement, which in large part, exists online with anonymous Twitter avatars.

“Honestly, sometimes I can’t believe how dumb our movement can be..We have to get serious about things if we want to move forward. This anonymous, online b——- can’t go on.” – Matthew Heimbach, leader of Traditionalist Workers Party

Vegas Tenold: With the Internet, with social media, it becomes that much easier to have your opinions reinforced. And once you try to translate that into real world action, it becomes difficult. I was at Charlottesville where they were, I would say around 400 people, which is by far the largest gathering I’d ever been to. And I’d been to dozens of these things.

Yes, there has been a mobilizing effect, and I think people are emboldened but even so, they’re still struggling on how to translate this into an actionable, physical movement. The current crop of politicians aren’t doing any favors. I think they’re feeding into this as well. So it becomes this pretty toxic place where it’s easy for this kind of rhetoric to grow even more. 

Donald Trump: You know there’s another side. There was a group on this side, you can call them the left, you’ve just called them the left, that came violently attacking the other group.

Vegas Tenold: You know there was a rally in Boston after Charlottesville, where I think five or six Nationalists came out, and a few thousand counter-protestors came out.

Counter protesters at the Boston Free Speech Rally. 

Vegas Tenold: There are rays of light in this thing. Just recently, a guy, a former Hammerskin, which is the most extreme part of the Skinhead movement, texted me and said he left the movement. And that he might want to help others leave, too. So as awful and abhorrent as their ideology and politics is, some of them can change. Some of them can turn and come back to us.

Current political climate in U.S. gives white supremacists carte blanche – fmr neo-Nazi leader

White supremacist movements are back in the headlines in the US. The left is ringing the alarms over the alleged rise of neo-Nazis in America. And our special guest today knows all about the White Supremacist movement – he was part of it. Arno Michaelis founded a hate group that grew into one of the biggest skinhead crews in the US, before renouncing the movement and its message of hate, which he now works against. But how do you contain the appeal of right-wing extreme? We ask the former skinhead and neo-Nazi leader.

Trump’s “moral authority is compromised” says Sen. Tim Scott (HBO)

President Donald Trump has put his fellow Republican politicians in an awkward position after his Tuesday news conference, where he blamed both sides for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend.

One Republican in an especially awkward spot is Sen. Tim Scott, of South Carolina, the only black Republican in the Senate and one of only 10 black people ever to serve as a United States senator.

In an interview with VICE News on Thursday, he condemned the neo-Nazis and white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville and questioned the president’s moral authority following the tragedy. “I’m not going to defend the indefensible…[Trump’s] comments on Monday were strong. His comments on Tuesday started erasing the comments that were strong. What we want to see from our president is clarity and moral authority. And that moral authority is compromised when Tuesday happened. There’s no question about that.” Scott added that the president hasn’t reached out to him to discuss Charlottesville.

However, the reactions from most other politicians and leaders have given Scott some hope. “Racism is real. It is alive. It is here. But the response from the vast majority of this country is diametrically opposite of the response in the ’60s. We’ve had the United States military, generals, leaders, standing up and rejecting, completely, racism. We’ve had corporate America, which was fairly silent back in the ’60s, standing up very strong, very loud, and very proud.” He continued, “So the response in totality is exactly the opposite of what it was in the ’60s.”

But a senator can only go so far when the leader of his party is the leader of the country. Scott said to accomplish some of his priorities, like tax reform and affordable housing, he has no choice but to work with the president. “I’m gonna work with him wherever we are in agreement. I’m going to speak out against him when we are not in agreement. And that’s the bottom line,” the senator said.

When asked if the president has any political capital to help him achieve some of his policy goals, Scott said, “It is always helpful for the president to have coattails…the president’s coattails are shorter.”

This segment originally aired August 17, 2017 on VICE News Tonight on HBO.

Nazi Hipsters? ‘Nipster’ Movement Spreading Across Germany

Source: http://rt.com/news/168680-nazi-hipsters-in-germany/

http://fedgeno.com/links/

https://www.facebook.com/global.paradigm.shift

The neo-Nazi movement has collided with the hipster subculture in Germany to form a group of youths wearing beards, trendy tote bags, and bandanas stitched with Nazi slogans. Media has dubbed the fiery mix of Nazi-hipsters “nipsters.”

The new recruits of the far-right movement have taken to YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, and other social media, as the ‘hipsterfication’ of the neo-Nazi movement has gained more support among youths in Germany. However, they don’t own the term “nipster” on the web — there they have to share the name with Asian hipsters, fans of masculine breasts, and less prominent groups that identify with it.

However, the term in its revised meaning was offered in a fresh report by Rolling Stone magazine, which interviewed Patrick Schroeder from northeastern Bavaria, one of the faces of the Nazi hipster movement who hopes to give it a friendlier social and political face.

Schroeder conducts seminars showing neo-Nazis how they can dress less threateningly, saying that people from other subcultures, including hip-hop, should be able to join the Nazi movement.

“If the definition of the nipster is someone who can live in the mainstream,” Schroeder explained to Rolling Stone, “then I see it as the future of the movement.”

The ‘Nazi fashionistas’ want to be in style by wearing trendy Converses, skinny jeans, tote bags, and brightly colored glasses together with beards.

“There were a lot of jokes about the Nazi hipsters. They had a bag saying ‘Please don’t shove, I’ve got a yogurt in my bag” journalist John Riceburg told RT.

They also filmed a Harlem shake video with people in black balaclavas and Anonymous masks dancing on junked cars with signs reading “Have more sex with Nazis, unprotected.”

There is even a vegan Nazi cooking show where two chatty men wearing balaclavas show how to make various vegan dishes.

Riceburg explained that the Nazis have always tried to copy youth subcultures, giving the examples of skinheads who were originally “a kind of proletarian youth subculture” and eco-Nazis, or hippy-Nazis.

“They are trying to mainstream the Nazi and fascist ideas as being something which is acceptable,” Weyman Bennett, secretary of Unite Against Fascism, told RT. “We saw this in the 70s — the part of early punks wearing swastikas.”

From the early 70s to the 90s, the fascism movement has tried to “plug into the youth culture,” he added.

The Nazi movement has been gaining political support in Europe, Bennett said, pointing to the alarming trend and adding that for the first time since WWII, a Nazi organization has been elected to the EU parliament — referring to the French far-right party Front National headed by Marine Le Pen.
