  • German Far-Right Politician Resigns after being Photographed on 'Hitler Pilgrimage' of Nazi sites

    An Alternative for Germany (AfD) politician got himself in hot water over photos of his “pilgrimage” to Hitler-related sites. The politician was reportedly pictured with a candle in front of Hitler’s birthplace in the Austrian town of Brannau am Inn. He was also pictured near the Berchtesgaden Alpine retreat of the Fuhrer, as well as posing near swastikas and SS rune-bearing banners. While the scandalous pictures have not been released, the AfD acknowledged their existence. “The person concerned was clearly reminded by the state board that such incidents are unacceptable and incompatible with AfD membership,” Torben Braga, a party spokesman,...

    Just out on Netflix, Paul Greengrass's new film, 22 July, takes its title from the date in 2011 on which a lone maniac named Anders Behring Breivik murdered seventy-seven people in Norway. But only the first third or so of the movie covers the actual events of that date – the massive explosion Breivik set off in a parked panel truck outside the major government building in Oslo, killing eight, and the shootings he then carried out at the ruling Labor Party's annual summer youth camp on the nearby island of Utřya, which took sixty-nine lives. The second third of...

    German police have ended a far-right concert early after eight officers were slightly injured by neo-Nazis throwing bottles and rocks at them. The German news agency dpa reported Sunday that some 800 neo-Nazis attended the concert late Saturday in the eastern German town of Apolda, while around 500 people came for a counter-protest holding vigils and attending a late-night church service. Police officers had to use pepper spray and batons when some neo-Nazis tried to break through police barriers. The eastern state of Thuringia has long been a center for neo-Nazi concerts. Efforts to ban the concert didn't succeed because...

On the right, some...
  • Why young Germans are feeling gloomy about their country

    The German economy is booming. Unemployment is at a near-record low. In Europe and around the world, the country is seen as a beacon of wealth and efficiency. So why are these prosperous young Germans so doggedly pessimistic about their future? Peter Matuschek, chief political analyst at the German polling institute Forsa, says that while Germans tend to be content with their own lives, they feel less at ease with the direction the country is taking. And while the assumption may be that this is a phenomenon among older Germans, it’s also very much affecting the younger generation. Mirroring the...

    On August 27, around 22:00 P.M., the Kosher restaurant "Schalom" in Chemnitz was raided by a group of neo-Nazis clad in black. The town has seen a deluge of violent demonstrations by far-right groups in world past two weeks, which began in protest of the murder of a local citizen, suspected to have been committed by Syrian and Iraqi asylum seekers on August 26. The group reportedly shouted: "Get out of Germany, Jewish pigs," and hurled stones and bottles at the restaurant. Uwe Dziuballa, the owner of "Schalom," was wounded after being hit by one of the rocks and the...

    ORTLAND, Oregon—Outfitted in a flak jacket and fighting gloves, Enrique Tarrio was one of dozens of black, Latino, and Asian men who marched alongside white supremacists in Portland on Aug. 4. Tarrio, who identifies as Afro-Cuban, is president of the Miami chapter of the Proud Boys, who call themselves “Western chauvinists,” and “regularly spout white-nationalist memes and maintain affiliations with known extremists,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Last month, prior to the Patriot Prayer rally he attended in Portland, Tarrio was pictured with other far-right activists making a white-power hand sign. Last year, he and other Proud Boys...

    Siding with Twitter, an appellate court has halted white nationalist Jared Taylor's lawsuit alleging he was wrongly banned from the service. In a decision issued Friday, California's First Appellate District said the Communications Decency Act protects Twitter from liability for decisions about what content to allow on the service. The appellate court stayed Taylor's lawsuit and sent the matter back to Judge Harold Kahn in San Francisco with instructions to either dismiss Taylor's complaint, or to defend a decision allowing the case to proceed. But the appellate judges made clear that they believe the case should be dismissed outright, writing...

    I’ve spent most of my adult life producing theater in New York City. In that time, on more occasions than I care to remember, only 20 people showed up in the audience when I’d hoped for hundreds. I thought of that with a smile yesterday watching the maybe two dozen sad white nationalists hold their “rally” in Washington. I know how bad that feels, the Public Address system and stage you paid for mocking you. Jason Kessler and his gang more than deserved it, but you can see why they assumed they were going to sell out. The going narrative...

    On August 12, 2017, a free speech rally arrived in Charlottesville to stop the removal of the statue commemorating Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Then a group of Neo-Nazis, white knights, alt-right trolls, white nationalists, and other white supremacists showed up. They wanted to protect the statue, albeit for different reasons. Then to counter-protest the white (not “Right”) supremacists, the violent left-wing Antifa hordes with their Black Bloc goons crashed the protest, and all hell broke loose. With protesters fighting to pulverize or protect the statue of a general who had headed one side of the American Civil War, another civil...

    Airbnb warned participants heading to Washington, D.C., to participate in this weekend's white nationalist “Unite the Right” rally that the company may cancel their reservations and remove their accounts if they are caught violating Airbnb's policies. The company said in a statement to ABC News that it will take “appropriate action” if it identifies users who are “pursuing behavior on the Airbnb platform that would be antithetical to the Airbnb Community Commitment.” Airbnb says all of its users are required to agree to its Community Commitment, which includes treating "everyone in the Airbnb community — regardless of their race, religion,...

    ... On the right, hatred of Russia also runs deep, and little or no distinction is made in most quarters between things Russian and Soviet. As Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, a Russian patriot and the anti-communist par excellence, told an interviewer in 2006, that is very disappointing, indeed. Why such blindness and rigidity across the political and media class in the Western world, and in the United States in particular?

    Twitter shouldn’t be proud of this. The social network has taken some important steps in the past year to remove hate speech on its platform, such as suspending neo-Nazi groups and stripping alt-right activists of their “verified” status. But as Splinter reporter Emma Roller noted this morning, Twitter still has a long way to go. The Proud Boys were established during the 2016 presidential election by Vice Media co-founder Gavin McInnes. They don’t consider themselves part of the alt-right, instead insisting they are “western chauvinists” who oppose political correctness and white guilt. They also think the fact they’re named after...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on Wednesday published a report showing a rise in the number of hate groups operating in the United States during President Donald Trump’s first year in office. The number of hate groups in the US grew to 954, marking a 4 percent increase compared to last year. The report said Trump-inspired groups also provoked a backlash that witnessed a rise in black nationalist groups, such as the Nation of Islam. “President Trump’s first year in office proved to be just as racially divisive as his campaign — but even more consequential,” the report said....

Tech writer Quinn Norton ended her very short tenure at the newspaper after controversy erupted over her use of racial and homophobic slurs on Twitter. “Despite our review of Quinn Norton’s work and our conversations with her previous employers, this was new information to us,” read a statement from editorial page editor, James Bennet. “Based on it, we’ve decided to go our separate ways.” In a series of tweets,...

    Russian police are investigating whether three school attacks this week are connected after a teenager attacked a class with an axe and Molotov cocktail in the Buryatia region. The instructor involved, Russian language and literature teacher Irina Ramenskaya, told Mash, “I started to take the kids out. When I came out, I saw that a person was just chopping the kids with an axe,” she said. “I brought them back in the classroom, where everything was burning. I was bleeding. Before my eyes stood Anton with an axe.” The Ulan-Ude incident came on the heels of a knife attack that...

    A Missouri man whose bizarre antics on an Amtrak train in October landed him in jail now faces terrorism charges. Taylor Michael Wilson, 26, of St. Charles, Miss., allegedly forced his way into the train engineer’s cab while in southwest Nebraska and pulled the emergency brakes. He then made odd statements like, “I’m the conductor b----“ and “what are you going to do, shoot me?” NBC News reported. The FBI believes Wilson is a white supremacist who is a member of a neo-Nazi group, authorities said. Wilson, 26, was charged in December with “terrorism attacks and other violence against railroad...

    An anti-fascist activist who died during a neo-Nazi rally in Virginia has had to have her final remains hidden after her mother, Susan Bro, 61, continues to receive threats from white nationalists. Heather Heyer, 32, died while counter-protesting at a rally organized by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Aug. 12. Bro and other members of Heyer's family have continuously received threats from racist extremists since news of Heyer's views against racism and hate were made public knowledge, Bro told the Daily Beast. 'It’s a symptom of hate in society that you should have to protect your child’s grave, for...
