I have written here in the past that we ignore the activities of extreme ‘white nationalist’ groups at our peril. Many have accused me of alarmism and droned on about how the only threat these days is from Islamists. Not so.
In the US, a neo-Nazi has opened fire at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.
Then there’s this:
A white supremacist plot, aimed at using ricin as part of a biological weapon against ethnic minorities in the UK, has been thwarted by police after a father and son team have both been arrested under the Terrorism Act 2000. The lethal toxin was discovered in a sealed jam jar, after a six month investigation led to the dawn raids on two properties in County Durham.
Nicky Davison, 18, was initially arrested at his home in Grampian Court, Annfield Plain, on suspicion of inciting racial hatred; however he has since been re-arrested. Both father, named Ian Davison, and son are now being detained under the Terrorism Act. Senior police believe the pair to be part of a worldwide terror plot targeting ethnic minorities.
It’s not just brown skinned bearded fanatics that threaten society and we’d do well to remember this.
