The Shabogans are the invisible underclass on Gallifrey. The plebs. The nobodies. The skivvies.  They're not the posh drop-outs.  They're not the soup-making rustics.  They're the unseen guttersnipes trapped inside the Capitol. They always leave the room just before you enter it.  They're the vandals who shoot stasers at the Seal of Rassilon. And maybe, sometimes, they do more than that. Maybe they riot. Maybe they erect barricades. Maybe they throw stones. Maybe they daub things like "GALLIFREY WILL NEVER BE HAPPY UNTIL THE LAST CASTELLAN HAS BEEN HANGED WITH THE GUTS OF THE LAST CARDINAL" on the walls of the Time Toilets. Because if there is hope, it lies in the Shabogans.

I'm Jack Graham.  Gothic Marxist.  Advocate of the struggle in terms of the strange.  Shakespearean villain.  Doctor Who fan.  Less an organic intellectual than a one-man morbid symptom.

I Don't Speak German, Episode 8 - The National Socialist Movement

In this episode, Daniel tells me all about the present-day American Nazis, in the forms of the Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP), the National Socialist Movement (NSM), and related people and organisations, especially the Nationalist Front.  We pay special attention to the best known representative of this nauseating subculture, Matthew Heimbach, and touch on the internal debacle which became known as 'The Night of the Wrong Wives'.

I Don't Speak German, Episode 4 - Unite the Right, the Aftermath

In this episode, Daniel tells me about the aftermath of the disastrous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville 2017 (which we talked about last time).  We also get a tad more theoretical about some of the reasons for some of the behaviour of the so-called 'alt-right', and chat about some related issues such as the recent controversy concerning the Covington MAGA kids.

I Don't Speak German, Episode 3 - Unite the Right, Charlottesville 2017

In this episode, which runs a bit longer than the first two, and which goes to some very dark places, Daniel tells me all about the infamous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, 2017.

The episode features discussions of violence, and we try to signpost when we're getting into the painful details.  But warnings definitely apply from the start.  We're discussing virulent racism and bigotry.

Download here.

And here's the podcast's own website.

(Also, we're on iTunes and YouTube now.)

Of necessity, we're only glancing at this incredibly big and complex subject, so we're going to be coming back to many of the issues, organisations, and persons mentioned.

And here are some notes, sources, and references.

I Don't Speak German, Episode 2

Nearly forgot I now have wednesdays to post whatever subsidiary stuff I have.

In our second episode, Daniel tells me all about former KKK Grand Wizard, "king of the angry Facebook grampas", and man who wrote an autobiography it took 42 hours for him to record himself reading, 'Dr' David Duke.

Download or listen here.

As ever, we're discussing fascism, racism and bigotry generally, so warnings apply.

 

New Podcast: I Don't Speak German

As many of you will know, our very own Daniel Harper has been researching the so-called 'alt-right' (really the far-right) for more tha two years now, listening to their podcasts and YouTube shows, documenting what they say to each other in their own spaces. 

This new podcast series - entitled (very cleverly, I think) I Don't Speak German - will be me in conversation with Daniel, giving him an opportunity to tell us what he heard.

We're discussing fascism and racism, so this podcast comes with big warnings.

Here's the first episode, on perhaps the best-known representative of the 'alt-right', Richard Spencer, his career, style, and ideology. The episode also touches on the origins of the term 'alt-right', the infamous 'heilgate' occurance after Trump's election, etc.

Our episodes will cover one 'topic' per show. We plan to keep the episodes as short as possible, and crank them out regularly (in direct defiance of our usual operating methods).

The next episode will be on a more old-school fascist, David Duke, former Klan 'Grand Wizard' who spoke at Charlottesville.

Please consider spreading the news about this new show.
