The Return of Nazism
swings, roundabouts and Black Suns

1) Payton Gendron
18 year old Payton Gendron stands accused of committing the worst racial mass-shooting in American history. Gendron shot thirteen people, eleven of whom were black, and left a total of ten dead in his wake.
“Ten people are dead and a suspect is in custody after a gunman with a rifle and body armour opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York on 14 May, believed to be one of the deadliest racist massacres in recent American history, and the deadliest mass shooting in the US in 2022.”
2) Nato, Nazism and Azov
Yesterday, images of the alleged perpetrator of the worst racial mass murder in American history Payton Gendron were circulating depicting him wearing the same Black Sun symbol on his body armour.
Here is the screenshot of the original Nato photo, with the original (but since deleted) link posted in the thread above it too.
The Nazi Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) symbol appears in the top left photo of the female solider posted by Nato above.
A close up of that beige patch is seen below here:
Here is another Ukrainian soldier wearing the same Nazi Black Sun symbol:
The New York Post has attributed this same Black Sun symbol to yesterday’s racist killer, Payton Gendron, via his manifesto. See the top right of the below post:
“The teenager accused of killing 10 people in the Buffalo supermarket massacre posted a rambling white supremacist manifesto only that spewed a racist philosophy and outlined his plans step by step.”
Yes, this means what you think it means. Nato had promoted and then deleted Nazi Black Sun symbolism that features as commonplace among Ukranian Nazi fighters, who we are arming and funding.
It is correct that neo-Nazis exist everywhere. Such ‘whatabouttery’ though, does not wash. This is because unlike anywhere else we are directly arming and funding the Nazis in Ukraine. Azov is fully integrated into the Ukrainian National Guard. This is like America having a formal KKK battalion in its armed forces.
And Payton Gendron appears to have been directly inspired by this Nazi movement.
3) The New Zealand Neo-Nazi Terrorist Massacre at Christchurch Mosque
The online atmosphere of Nazi rhetoric and symbolism that Payton Gendron was likely exposed would be the same one that Ukrainian Azov Nazis find sanctuary in. But it gets worse.
Brenton Tarrant, the neo-Nazi terrorist behind New Zealand’s horrific 2020 Christchurch mosque shooting in which 51 Muslim worshippers were murdered was inspired by the very same online rhetoric and symbols promoted by the Azov battalion and associates.
Like Buffalo shooter Payton Gendron livestreamed his murder via Twitch, before him New Zealand’s Brenton Tarrant also livestreamed his horror show, this time via facebook.
ABC reports in 2019 on how Azov served as inspiration for the Christchurch mosque shooter in New Zealand (note: this was before Russia entered Ukraine, and so before corporatist media in the West became swept up in propaganda reporting on Ukraine)
“Ukraine is home to a resurgent far-right that uses the same symbolism as the Christchurch shooter, but it hasn't been mentioned much over the past few weeks…Ukraine is home to the Azov movement, a far-right movement originally formed in 2014 as the Azov Battalion to fight Russian-led forces in eastern Ukraine. It quickly earned controversy as a place that accepted open neo-Nazis into its ranks…And that black sun once again..I see it on Azov's patches, being worn by soldiers, and even used as decoration in one of their social centres.. I lost count of how many black sun patches and tattoos I saw. I've seen it on stickers on lampposts around Kiev, promoting a group called "WotanJugend" — a neo-Nazi group with roots in Russia but now based in Kiev. “Blood, fatherland, faith," the stickers say in Russian, with a black sun and the groups' logo, a Tyr-rune: a symbol graduates from Nazi academies once wore around their arms. WotanJugend has connections with the Azov movement — you can buy WotanJugend shirts, emblazoned with black suns and runic imagery used by the SS, from a small shop inside Azov's Cossack House in central Kiev. And WotanJugend knows about the Christchurch shooting. On their website, they've got the manifesto translated into Russian, and they link to the live-streamed videos of the shooting. They even have a post discussing the shooter, where they describe what he did in Christchurch and praise him openly for it. I won't quote directly, but suffice to say these Ukraine-based neo-Nazis think the Christchurch tragedy was totally justified — for them, the shooter is a hero.”
Political Violence analysts at the US-based Soufan Centre report:
“There are possible links between the recent New Zealand mosque shooter and a Ukrainian ultra-nationalist white supremacist paramilitary organization called the Azov Battalion..The Azov Battalion is emerging as a critical node in the transnational right-wing violent extremist (RWE) movement…Recruits from the U.S., Norway, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Sweden, and Australia, among others, have reportedly traveled to train with the Azov Battalion…The global nature of these groups is just one of several similarities between RWEs and Salafi-jihadists..In the wake of the New Zealand mosque attacks, links have emerged between the shooter, Brenton Tarrant, and a Ukrainian ultra-nationalist, white supremacist paramilitary organization called the Azov Battalion. Tarrant’s manifesto alleges that he visited the country during his many travels abroad, and the flak jacket that Tarrant wore during the assault featured a symbol commonly used by the Azov Battalion.”
As the Washington Post reports, here is that symbol from the New Zealand neo-Nazi terrorist Brenton Tarrant’s flak jacket.
It’s the very same Black Sun symbol, again:
4) Civil War, the Great Reset, ‘Build Back Better’ and Technocracy
On 4th March 2022, I stated on Tim Pool’s show that it would be impossible to ‘Build Back Better’ without first destroying the old world - the Great Reset - and that such a Great Reset would benefit from war. One consequence of this war would be increased civil strife caused by domestic radicalisation. By the time of airing, this war had already begun in Ukraine.
Here is a clip where I forecast that Azov Nazism has, and will continue to, inspire nasty attacks across the West that seek to spark a civil war between racial & cultural groups:
“What does that do for radicalisation? If you end up going across Europe to join the Azov battalion, you gain combat experience fighting the Russians and then you go back to your country of origin, you’re now the equivalent of the jihadi foreign fighter. .. we know what effect that had with global jihadism. Those that fought in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union when the Soviets occupied Afghanistan, al-Qaeda emerged from there, global jihadism spread from that combat experience in Afghanistan, 9/11 happened and the rest is history. This is the powder keg we’ve currently got… you’ve got the potential for foreign fighter radicalisation this time with Nazism as opposed to jihadism, on European soil, but Europe’s never had more Muslims citizens in history than it currently has. Think France for example, ten percent Muslim. Also Europe has a radicalisation problem on the Muslim side. Now, going back to the Great Reset, and the destruction of the world order, Build Back Better, this is the perfect way to encourage civil war in Europe. With these battle hardened Nazi fighters going back to their country of origin, you got jihadis there already..what I worry about is this leading to reciprocal radicalisation in European countries, and that civil conflict emerging in continental Europe.”
From before these words and after them, Brenton Tarrant in New Zealand and Payton Gendron’s actions in Buffalo have demonstrated that Azov are indeed inspiring attacks in the West.
Anyone seeking to still obscure, obfuscate or deny this link between Azov in Ukraine, Nazism and far-right attacks in the West will find it difficult to shake off the accusation of being an excuser of Nazism.
As the Daily Beast even acknowledged, from before Russia’s invasion
The Daily Beast:
“There are no doubts about the neo-Nazi and white supremacist background of the Azov Battalion, a militia that has positioned itself at the forefront of the fight against Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine. As the founder and head of the battalion Andriy Biletsky once put it, “The historic mission of our nation in this critical moment is to lead the White Races of the world in a final crusade for their survival.”
And as Newsweek also reported from before the invasion:
“Groups of right-wing Ukrainian nationalists are committing war crimes in the rebel-held territories of Eastern Ukraine, according to a report from Amnesty International, as evidence emerged in local media of the volunteer militias beheading their victims.”
And again, from before Russia’s invasion, the notion that these Nazi fighters could end up radicalising an entire generation of fighters in the West had already been recognised by our media.
“Outside Ukraine, Azov occupies a central role in a network of extremist groups stretching from California across Europe to New Zealand, according to law enforcement officials on three continents. And it acts as a magnet for young men eager for combat experience. Ali Soufan, a security consultant and former FBI agent who has studied Azov, estimates that more than 17,000 foreign fighters have come to Ukraine over the past six years from 50 countries.”
Facebook had already allowed their platform to serve as the basis for genocide against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar:
Now they appear to have allowed their platform to be used by Azov Nazis to incite ethnic cleansing in Ukraine, as long as it’s against Russians. They have no excuse.
“FACEBOOK WILL TEMPORARILY allow its billions of users to praise the Azov Battalion, a Ukrainian neo-Nazi military unit previously banned from being freely discussed under the company’s Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy, The Intercept has learned”
That the Azov battalion are Nazis is not in doubt. Indeed, it never was. As for that weak media spin about Zelensky being Jewish serving as some form of defence for this inexcusable crime, that has not prevented a bad people in the past from behaving badly.
The LA Times reports:
5) The Return of Nazism
Far-right violent extremism is billed as the fastest growing threat in the West, with jihadism still posing the greatest threat in sheer numbers.
“The fastest-growing terror threat in the UK comes from far-right extremism, police have said. Neil Basu, the UK head of counter-terrorism, said seven of the 22 plots foiled since March 2017 have been linked to the ideology…But, he said, the biggest threat still came from jihadists.”
“Right-wing extremism in the United States appears to be growing. The number of terrorist attacks by far-right perpetrators rose over the past decade, more than quadrupling between 2016 and 2017.”
This is all probably true. But what is going on here exactly? Why are the nations that sacrificed so much to defeat Nazism now actively funding it again in Ukraine?
As already stated above, there can be no ‘Build Back Better’ without the destruction of the old. This is the Great Reset. To succeed in ushering in their draconian technocratic tyranny named the New World Order, globalists require chaos as a pretext to usher in order.
Forecasted on Wednesday 26th January 2022 on the Joe Rogan Experience.
Even the corrupt Zelensky is now warning nations of this very chaos:
In times such as these we should avoid repeating the same mistakes of history. As well as condemning all manner of terrorist and extremist, communities must refuse to be pitched against each other in a tried and tested game of divide and conquer. People must refuse to allow the exploitation of their identities as pawns in the global banking wars.
Rather than allowing this moment to be used as an all encompassing indictment of the rising populist nationalist rejection of globalism, or indeed rising Muslim rejection of the same, we would do well to remember the globalist bankers who funded both sides even back in WWII, for what may be the same purpose: to discredit all but a globalist solution to the chaos. Historic and difficult days once again lay in wait ahead of us. How we navigate these, this time, will make all the difference.
Documenting how Wall Street funded both sides, Professor Antony Sutton’s book here should serve as a warning:
“The contribution made by American capitalism to German war preparations can only be described as phenomenal. It was certainly crucial to German military capabilities...Not only was an influential sector of American business aware of the nature of Naziism, but for its own purposes aided Naziism wherever possible (and profitable) - with full knowledge that the probable outcome would be war involving Europe and the United States”.
From the chaos, they seek a New World Order. Do not forget they they have already told us this.
The Prophet (p.b.u.h.) Muhammad reportedly said:
“The believer should not be bitten from the same hole twice.”
