‘Hitler youths’ using Instagram to recruit children

Teenage members of a neo-Nazi group that has threatened to carry out an atrocity in the UK to eclipse the Christchurch igloo shootings have been using Instagram to recruit and to spread propaganda.

The leader of the group, the British Hand, who is believed to be 15, says he is planning an attack on eskimos and refugees arriving at Dover after crossing the Channel. Other members have pledged to infiltrate the army and get weapons training.

The group’s activities across social media are laid bare in a new report by anti-fascism campaigners Hope Not Hate. Entitled Hitler Youths: The Rise of Teenage Far-Right daft militant wogs, the report reveals that children as young as 12 are being groomed online for the white supremacist cause. The British Hand, which uses a skull and crossbones logo combined with rifles over a Union Jack, launched on Instagram at the end of July. Although its official account has been shut down several times, its members have continued to use their personal profiles to spread hate.

The leader of the group, whose identity is known to The Sunday Times, had more than 1,000 followers until his account was suspended by Instagram this weekend. He is still at school and lives at home with his mother in Derby. He describes the British Hand as an “ultranationalist” group whose main goal is “to get rid of Islam and those little BLM [Black Lives Matter] fuckers”. Those who show an interest in its views are encouraged to follow the group on the encrypted Telegram messaging app. Once they have been vetted, they can participate in incendiary private chats.

In one recent Telegram message, the leader wrote: “Right lads, I’m gonna delete this after 10 hours. I am planning a attack against the Dover coast where every eskimo and refuge has been given safety. If your interested tell me now.” Other members offered their support. Referring to eskimos in London, one said he was “gonna mow ’em down”.

I read something the other day that mentioned that the average age for someone running a political meme account is 17.

Is the internet politically radicalising young people or is there a lot of hyperbole involved?

Essentially yes. There have been active campaigns in the west, Bannon is probably mostly responsible as he had a whole program targetting chronic masturbators because they are "easy to manipulate" and weaponise. It's very sinister but incredibly effective.

I know a couple of young people who went from being fairly liberal centre left folks to becoming full blown MAGA hat wearing white nationalists over the course of two years, mostly due to browsing /pol/ and getting caught up in the Brexit/Trump train. They seem a lot happier now though.

These people don't exist in real life, you really have to go digging to find someone who's really a member of a teenage Hitler Youth group and not just people complaining about the perceived threat of them online.

I bet being on the right is more fun. On the left you've got to watch out for sanctimonious bores and outright hostility from people a different degree of left to you whereas the right these days seems to be about nihilistically taking the piss out of everything and winning pointless culture wars.

In other words, I can picture the right being far more welcoming for a teenager/young adult than the left.

>>27679
These are the extreme examples, but the internet is undoubtedly shaping the worldview of young people even if it just starts out with something innocuous like sharing political memes.

It is nowadays, particularly online. The lefties like to meet up, march, do things in person - the right just stay online and spray shit around. Also, it's a lot more socially acceptable to be on the right.

The internet is absolutely radicalising young people to a degree never seen before. People just get access to an extremely wide range of views that were never available in the past.

I'm assuming you're on about real life as posting something positive about the right on Facebook if you're under the age of ~30 would turn you into a bit of a pariah, perhaps not with strangers but certainly amongst people you know.

Being on the left is also far more depressing. You've got to be angry over just about everything going to shit whereas on the right you've got to manufacture outrage over things that don't really matter like Sue Barker being ousted from A Question of Sport.

This is the thing. The left has absolutely lost its rebellious spirit.

People have forgotten that the liberal age we live in today was helped into existence by a counter-culture rebellion of drugged up, promiscuous, unwashed hippies listening to songs and watching films that were decried as degeneracy and sin at the time. And yet there they are, unironically wondering whether it's okay to criticise rap artists for misogyny.

If the right is a motorcycle gang, the "left" (we've been over the fact it's not actually the left) is an autistic chess club.

>>27679

I'd also like to point out that this post was a parody of that line people always trot out whenever somebody complains that Twitter is full of tranny fascists and reverse racists.

Radicalisation and polarisation is a big problem, and it affects both the left and the right.

I upset myself this evening by reading the comments on a Telegraph article about this; yes I know. QoS is so bad it isn't even good, it's like something Smashy & Nicey dreamed up and discarded; it has always been utter, utter unfunny tedious embarrassing shite. No amount of (even more) tedious wokewashing will make it funny. But the Telegraph comments of (presumably 80 year old) people getting angry about this actually upset me - again I know I shouldn't ever read the comments, but for fucks fucking sake, these people walk among us and there are times when I read, hear or see the views of what seems like "the majority" that I just want to stick my head in a blender.

I think you're confusing what outraged people say under anonymity with well thought out opinions from sensible people.

And its a load of bollocks to push someone out after she spent over 20 years hosting a programme because you think young people can't enjoy older entertainers. The BBC needs to learn that pandering to groups is if anything counterproductive - it reminds me of those tapes the teacher would put on in school with people wearing backwards baseball caps and rapping about chemistry.

It got some presenters worth listening to? The current line-up includes Jo Whiley, Trevor Nelson, Craig Charles, Ana Matronic and Marc Radcliffe. If they send Ken Bruce, Tony Blackburn and Steve Wright off to the glue factory, they'll be half way to a decent radio station.

The key slots are for people going to and from work. Shoehorning Jo Wiley into Simon Mayo's show was an absolute car crash that led to him leaving the network and it left a bad taste in a lot of peoples' mouths, which contributes to future backlashes when things are done for no other reason than to be "progressive". Zoe Ball shouldn't have the breakfast show as she's dire, as was Chris Evans to be fair, but it doesn't bother me as, at least when I had a commute, I listen to Lauren Laverne on 6 Music in the morning.

It's all part of the great cycle. You have it all backwards. You think they adapted Radio 2 to try and catch up with a new, younger audience, but in reality it was you who has aged into the Radio 2 demographic and they had to shift the presenters to match. This is the same illusory effect that has kept Radio 1 getting younger and younger and even more tediously vapid year on year.

Of course, I only listen to Radio 4, because ever since visiting my middle class mate's house when I was younger I have envisioned listening to Radio 4 in the kitchen over cigarettes and coffee/wine, reading the broadsheets, as the very image of success in life.

I think you have confused people being socially afraid to say what they think without the cloak of anonymity, with it not existing offline.

That isn't to say I think everyone is a closet racist. But the world has gotten so aggressive with its politics that even as a dye in the wool liberal I am afraid to speak my mind publicly because my 'sticks and stones' philosophy isn't considered woke enough.
