Fascist Radicalism and the New Media – Panel 2


Panel 2: New Media and European Fascisms (Chair: Paul Jackson)

Dr Matthew Feldman, University of Northampton: ‘Universal Nazism in Britain: The Case of the Aryan Strike Force’

The nature and historical permutations of neo-Nazism are under investigation in this presentation.  More specifically, the international dimension to so-called ‘Universal Nazism’ reveals a particularly close kinship between extreme right-wing movements in Britain and the United States.  Most visibly, a number of small organisations – following the Patterns of Prejudice’s exploration of recent ‘right-wing groupuscules’ – have turned to the  internet to propagate their views; other activists have gone further still in embracing paramilitarism and, in some cases, terrorism. In considering an example of the latter, this presentation provides a case study of what may be called ‘broadband terrorism’: the correspondence of neo-Nazi groupuscule moving from online activism to terrorist activity.
