I Don't Speak German, Episode 11 - The Christchurch Massacre and Leaderless Resistance

(8 comments)

In this episode we touch on the promised topic of the mainstreamers vs the vanguardists in the far-right movement, but only in the course of covering topical events. 

These include the firing of the 'Nazi EMT' Alex McNabb, and the recently released tapes of disgusting comments by Fox News's pet white nationalist con-man Tucker Carlson. 

But, most particularly, of course, we talk about the recent ghastly massacre at Christchurch, New Zealand. 

Daniel provides really vital insights in this episode into the way such murderous terrorist attacks by fascists - of which the Christchurch attack is just the latest of many - stem from a conscious organisational strategy within the far right called 'leaderless resistance'.  Daniel explains this and where it comes from, its meaning within the movement, etc, going into the infamous racist novel The Turner Diaries and 'The Order', and so on.  He also goes into the murderer's 'manifesto', the meme-drenched nature of his chan board-based fascism, and describes the contents of his livestream broadcast.  We touch on the killer's 'Balkan Nationalism' and his ostensible ecological concerns.

Needless to say, some of this is upsetting listening.

(Sorry for the delay but, to be honest, this one was a bit distressing to edit.)

We recently got mentioned in a web article by David Gerard for Foreign Policy magazine about the far-right and crypto currency, for which Daniel was interviewed.  We were also recommended on the AV Club, thanks to Anthony Herrera.

The horrific events in Christchurch are an example of "Stochastic Terrorism". Interesting book here: https://cup.columbia.edu/book/the-age-of-lone-wolf-terrorism/9780231181747- which while it uses the "lone wolf" term, they spend a whole chapter talking about "Enablers".

"Leaderless resistance" sounds a lot like the cell structure that you typically find in terrorist organizations - Al Qaeda were/are organized in a very similar way.

Here in Australia (the murder's country of origin), it has prompted a discussion about Islamophobia in our right-wing media - but such people are shameless (and they are the real victims here):

Thank you for sharing this valuable piece of information with us. I have taken a lot of notes from this article. On the contrary, this article reminds me of something similar that I have read some articles on a review site's blog recently.
