German commissioned study says the new far-right movement is ‘leaderless, transnational, apocalyptic’ and violent.

Far-right individuals in Europe and the United States are increasingly forming global links and using the coronavirus pandemic to attract anti-vaccine activists and conspiracy theorists to their cause, a study commissioned by the German foreign ministry said.

The study, released on Friday, was carried out in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, the US, Sweden and Finland by the Counter Extremism Project (CEP). It documents the emergence of a new far-right movement since 2014 that is “leaderless, transnational, apocalyptic and oriented towards violence”.

The Far-Right is a cancer. Don't forget that Hitler was an early pioneer who burned the whole world once.
They are the enemy.

Yes, dumb people everywhere are a danger to society and stability of the peace, be they far-right, Muslims who kill people for drawing Mohammed, Muslims who bomb other Muslims, Muslims who want sharia law, Hindus... That's why places like this forum exist so that people can share strategies on how to help people come to their senses, be they Christians who want to purge society from Muslims, Muslims who want to purge society from Jews, and so on.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

I can't decide who is more tiresome, you or Drich.

You are a one trick pony. Drich at least comes up with new stupidity from time to time.

Oh - need more ostriches.

The use of the word "increasingly" implies that this is a very recent development. Conspiracy theories are practically the bread and butter of the alt-right, and have been for years. It's pretty much the only way they can maintain some moral high ground, whether it's the standard Cultural Marxist conspiracy theory or even something as bugfuck as QAnon.

Latching onto a figurehead who straddles the line between “even more pathological a liar than usual for politicians” and “probably can’t tell fact from fantasy” doesn’t help matters.

They are an enemy. Just like people who want to chop off other peoples heads (or hands) for no good reason, and already have formed global links.

At least with cancer, you get good drugs.  Damn, son, you can't even get that part right.

The theory the far right is broadcasting now is "The Great Replacement":

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Replacement

Quote:The Great Replacement (French: grand remplacement), also known as the replacement theory,[1][2] is a white nationalist far-right[3] conspiracy theory[4][5][6] which states that, with the complicity or cooperation of "replacist" elites,[a][4][7] the white French population—as well as white European population at large—is being progressively replaced with non-European peoples—specifically Arab, Berber and sub-Saharan Muslim populations from Africa and the Middle East—through mass migration, demographic growth and a European drop in the birth rate.[4][8] Scholars have generally dismissed the claims of a "great replacement" as being rooted in a misreading of immigration statistics and unscientific, racist views.[9][10]

You are correct that's not quite new: it's just the usual "Nazi mentality" evolved to match today's perspective.

That's why I always thought that targets of the far right already include "white people who are traitors -i.e in good terms with other humans"..that is so Hitler on steroids.
