Narrating the ‘Great Replacement’ for the German Goon Squads: Akif Pirinçci’s Umvolkung (2016) Book

As CARR Senior Fellow, Dr Andreas Önnerfors notes: the 153 pages of rage contained in Akif Pirinçci’s Umvolkung (2016) book openly incites hatred against the ‘invaders’ as much as against their presumed puppet-masters, saturated by a vulgar language of violence, it is a racist rant of baseless accusations. As Önnerfors finds, it does not surprise… Continue reading “Narrating the ‘Great Replacement’ for the German Goon Squads: Akif Pirinçci’s Umvolkung (2016) Book”

Jean Raspail, right wing prophet of ‘identity politics’ has died

Raspail’s influence has expanded beyond the small world of the radical right. Jean Raspail is author of the 1973 ‘Le Camp des Saints’ (The Camp of the Saints), a dystopian novel describing an invasion of immigrants from the Indian Subcontinent who land on the shores of Southern France in a flotilla of boats, then take… Continue reading “Jean Raspail, right wing prophet of ‘identity politics’ has died”

A New Wave of Right-Wing Terrorism

Right-wing terrorism is a growing threat for democratic societies globally. With rising numbers in death tolls and far-right narratives creeping into the mainstream, the extreme right assumed a new face through the digital dissemination of extremist propaganda and trivialising violence – thereby attracting new audiences. Greater cooperation is required between the state, researchers, and tech… Continue reading “A New Wave of Right-Wing Terrorism”

When racism meets misogyny – doxxing white women in interracial relationships, ‘white genocide conspiracies’ and authoritarian punitivity

On May 14th 2020 VICE published an article about a website ‘register’ that doxxes interracial couples.  It provided a database of white women who dated black men. After it drew media attention, the white supremacist page was seemingly hacked and then taken offline. On its social media presence, however, the website’s author encourages others to… Continue reading “When racism meets misogyny – doxxing white women in interracial relationships, ‘white genocide conspiracies’ and authoritarian punitivity”

The great replacement theory: a historical perspective

Demographic conspiracies should not be seen as fringe enterprises restricted to gullible extremists – they have an increasingly mainstream appeal. Enoch Powell’s 1968 ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech has infamously seared itself into the British public’s mind for its apocalyptic hyperbole and guttural prejudice but less so for its conspiratorial nature. Powell warned of the demographic… Continue reading “The great replacement theory: a historical perspective”

The Radical Right Seeks To Recruit Among Anti-Corporate Activists

Right-wing white nationalists are co-opting the language used by left-wing anti-corporate activists in order to expand their racist movement. ‘Corporate America doesn’t need to be destroyed, but just shown that they are on the wrong side of history. That if they don’t bend, they will break.’ These are the alleged words of the shooter in… Continue reading “The Radical Right Seeks To Recruit Among Anti-Corporate Activists”

Eco-fascism encountered: the natural environment in justifications of terrorist violence in the Christchurch mosque shooting and the El Paso shooting

The murder of 51 people in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March 2019 has led to, for example, a gun reform bill in New Zealand and renewed interest in the notion of ‘the great replacement’. Given longstanding debates in the United States, gun reform seems unlikely to happen following the mass shooting in El Paso, United… Continue reading “Eco-fascism encountered: the natural environment in justifications of terrorist violence in the Christchurch mosque shooting and the El Paso shooting”
