I first heard about this story in a tweet from the Crown Prosecution Service in the UK:
Six people, including a couple, who were active members of a banned neo-Nazi group that glorified Hitler and the Third Reich have been jailed today. PHOTO: Adam Thomas posing with a machete and cushions found in the home he shared with Claudia Patatas.
I’m pretty attuned to political shenanigans in the UK, as I’ve gotten to know Tommy Robinson and the problems there. Lots of Muslim terrorism; lots of acid attacks and knife crime. London is now more dangerous than New York City. But I hadn’t heard of Nazi crime.
Now, to be fair, one of these people had a terrorist manual on their laptop. But in one year alone, 55,000 Muslims in the UK downloaded Al Qaida’s magazine, Inspire, which had all sorts of terrorist plans.
Which, I think, is why the police went after the Nazis. There’s just a handful of them, and from what I can tell, they hadn’t actually done anything violent.
