Exclusive: 'Watchlist' social media user talks about views on Jacinda Ardern and others which may have made him a target

21 May, 2019 7:00pm

"His most recent Facebook posts claim gun ownership stops crime, suggest the Christchurch massacre was a Government-organised hoax and painted Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern as a communist tyrant trampling our rights.
This is all the work of a Waiuku man who is one of those police have marked as a possible risk after the Christchurch terror attack.

He calls himself Napoleon Ardern online - a mocking of Ardern and an attempt to portray her as a masterful player in a wide conspiracy."

Man charged after bombs found at empty Christchurch section denies all charges

David Clarkson12:47, May 24 2019



A man charged with possession of improvised explosive devices that led to a Christchurch suburb being cordoned off has denied all charges.

Jay Michael Harding-Reriti, 33, of Phillipstown, appeared via video-link from prison in the Christchurch District Court on Friday. He was remanded in custody for a Crown case review hearing on July 9 by Judge Tom Gilbert.

He denies charges of unlawful possession of a handheld improvised explosive device, unlawful possession of 45 .22 calibre rounds, unlawful possession of an improvised explosive device and detonator cord, unlawful possession of powergel explosive and detonator cord, and unlawful possession of offensive weapons in public – two knives and a credit card knife.

Police were called to the suburb of Phillipstown after the explosive devices were found at an empty section on April 30.

Harding-Reriti remains in custody but defence counsel Andrew Bailey asked for him to be also remanded for a hearing where he will apply for release on electronically monitored bail on June 10.

Suspect in killing of German politician was jailed for attempted bombing

Man held over Walter Lübcke shooting linked to far-right extremists, say security sources

Tue 18 Jun 2019 02.59 AEST

A man with links to rightwing extremist groups who once planted a pipe bomb outside a home for asylum seekers is a suspect in the murder of a German politician this month, security sources have said.

The man who was arrested at the weekend in connection with the shooting of Walter Lübcke on 2 June is believed to have an association with the militant neo-Nazi group Combat 18 among others.

He was convicted of the attempted pipe bomb attack in 1993 and sentenced to prison, and a decade ago he was arrested on the margins of a neo-Nazi demonstration.

Identified only as Stephan E, in line with the custom in Germany, the 45-year-old is categorised by intelligence services as a rightwing extremist with violent tendencies.

A spokesman for the federal prosecutor’s office, which took over the Lübcke murder case from regional investigators on Monday, said: “The suspicion that we’re dealing with a rightwing extremist, or rightwing terrorist case, has hardened. We have taken over the investigation. The prosecutor’s office in Kassel is no longer responsible.”

Lübcke, 65, a member of Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union, was found outside his house with a fatal bullet wound to the head. The case has shocked Germany due to its brutality as well as the suspicions that it might have been linked to the victim’s outspoken pro-refugee stance.

In 2015 when the arrival of just under a million refugees to Germany sparked tensions across the country, Lübcke faced death threats after condemning protests outside a refugee shelter.

Investigators say they consider Stephan E to be close to the Hesse branch of the far-right National Democratic party (NPD) as well as having contact with Combat 18. The 18 in the group’s name refers to the first and eighth letters of the alphabet – A and H – far-right code for Adolf Hitler.

The suspect received a prison sentence when he was 20 for planting a pipe bomb in a burning car outside a shelter for asylum seekers in Hohenstein-Steckenroth, in the state of Hesse. Residents extinguished the fire and the bomb was safely detonated before it could explode.

Sixteen years later he was arrested on a far-right march that attacked an event by the association of German trade unions in Dortmund, and sentenced to seven months’ probation for breaching the peace.

He was arrested at his house in Kassel in the early hours of Saturday morning following a two-week hunt for Lübcke’s murderer. Authorities say DNA traces found in Lübcke’s clothing matched DNA samples of the suspect held by the federal criminal police office, the BKA.

Since Lübcke’s death, posts by rightwing extremists and neo-Nazis have appeared on Facebook and Twitter appearing to celebrate his murder. Police are investigating the identities of those behind the posts.

Combat 18 was considered at the turn of this century to be one of the most significant far-right groups in Germany. Its members typically hoarded weapons, spread far-right propaganda and compiled bomb-making guides.

It has been connected in the past with the network Blood and Honour, which assisted the far-right terrorist group National Socialist Underground, whose surviving member, Beate Zschäpe, was convicted last year and given a life sentence for a series of racially motivated killings.

He was a white supremacist, who added cross hairs and a kill count, and his excuse, was that it was awesome!
Guns, ammo, and explosives were found at his home, whichwas plastered with swastika flags and other Nazi paraphernalia.

There's a few more to face court for sharing yet so it will be interesting to see how the penalties are determined in their individual circumstances.

Typical media to misrepresent the case in the headline. Obviously he wasn't jailed for just sharing the video, but for a range of hate crimes including previous charge/s. Oh it was the ABC...

Here is a NZ media outlet which also says that it is only charges relating to the distribution of the video.
Christchurch man Philip Neville Arps was jailed for 21 months on Tuesday in the Christchurch District Court on two charges of distributing the objectionable live-streamed video of the mosque murders.

Grant Will Fund Research Into Growing Male Supremacist Subculture Online
ATLANTA—The United States Department of Homeland Security has awarded a $250,000 grant to Georgia State University to research the evolution and spread of the growing male supremacist movement referred to as Incel.

The new grant will fund a year-long effort led by Dr. John Horgan to research the group’s emergence and evolution. Horgan is a Distinguished University Professor of Psychology at Georgia State and directs the Violent Extremism Research Group.

“The Incel community is one of the purest hotbeds of Internet radicalization I’ve ever seen, and it’s a community that is growing in size and confidence,” Horgan said.

The new collaborative research project will provide a first-of-its-kind view into the movement referred to as the “Incel Rebellion” and its followers. Researchers will identify the group’s activity and identify what role the internet plays in fomenting violence and hate.

Group members identify themselves as “Incel” — “involuntarily celibate” or unable to find a romantic or sexual partner. Members are typically white, heterosexual men who harbor a self-described resentment toward women. The subculture is found predominantly online.

“Though Incels have been around for several years, the research community has only recently begun to sit up and take notice. I see Incel violence against women as nothing less than a new form of terrorism,” Horgan said.

In the past five years, Incel violence has been linked to 47 deaths, including a shooting and stabbing in Isla Vista, Calif., and an attack last year in Toronto, Canada. The new research will show how members are being radicalized.

“The recent Incel attacks against women have given the movement a new sense of urgency and direction,” Horgan said. “These are high-profile acts of targeted violence that have energized an already toxic and rage-fueled community.”

Dr. Horgan will lead a team of scientists from Massachusetts General Hospital’s Department of Psychiatry and the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences at Penn State University.

Professor
Psychology and Global Studies Institute

Dr. Horgan’s research focuses on psychological issues in terrorism and political violence. His current projects involve the development of psycho-social intervention programs for children affected by conflict, evaluating programs aimed at ‘Countering Violent Extremism’, and understanding the over-representation of religious converts in terrorist plots.
