The Alt-right and neo-nazis are using instructions from NATO to spread and revive Nazi ideology. According to one report:
Far right groups under the banner of the so-called ‘alt right’ are using psychological warfare techniques learnt from leaked NATO and British intelligence documents to spread white supremacism across the world, according to a new report.
In a study by the the Institute of Strategic Dialogue—titled ‘The Fringe Insurgency’—Julia Ebner and Jacob Davey argue that activists are “weaponising internet culture” to spread their ideology online and subvert democracies.
After spending several weeks undercover on online alt-right forums, the authors identified the tactics that users adopted to radicalize people online and mobilize support for the far-right groups, targeting anxieties over immigration, terrorism, and race.
They used “crowd-funding platforms, custom-made social media platforms and even the use of leaked military and intelligence resources from [U.K. intelligence agency] GCHQ and NATO to run campaigns against their own governments,” the report said.
In August, radical right-wing groups gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia, for their largest show of strength in decades, while in European far-right organizations have used crowd-funding platforms to raise money for boats to patrol European waters and intercept refugees.
The extreme right also had an influence the German federal election, which saw a huge spike in suport for the extreme party Alliance for Germany (AfD).
In large-scale and well-organized online campaigns, U.S. and European extremists have worked together: “Their strategic, tactical and operational convergence has allowed the extreme right to translate large-scale online mobilisation into real-world impact,” write the authors.
The report exposes how the U.S. ‘alt-right,’ responsible for trolling campaigns in support of President Donald Trump during the 2016 election, shared tips and tactics with European extremists—techniques gleaned from military psychological operations—to disrupt the democratic process.
Ahead of the AfD success in the German federal election—in which it secured 26 percent of the vote and marked the first time that far-right party has won seats in the German parliament since the Second World War—U.S. ‘alt-right’ activists spreads tips on messaging board 4chan.
“Instructions from the U.S. elections on how to obfuscate and manipulate the media space were recycled and adopted to a German audience: this included memetic warfare albums such as ‘normie memes’, and psychological operations resources, such as a ‘step by step how to manipulate narratives’ that links to GCHQ online deception and disruption playbooks,” according to the authors.
On encrypted chat app Discord, special channels were set up to “coordinate large-scale social media campaigns and to encourage the use of a range of psychological operations and disinformation tactics,” including spreading memes, setting up fake social media and ‘bot’ accounts, and monitoring and tailoring their impact with detailed web analytics techniques.
“As a result of the proactive transatlantic exchange of information, know-how and experience on message boards and in Discord channels, the tactics employed by European far-right activists mirror those used by the American alt-right,” the report claims.
The two weeks leading up to the election saw pro-AfD hashtags reached the top five trends in Germany multiple times as a result of the campaign.
The authors warn that the tactics used by the far-right are “more reminiscent of state-led psychological operations than that of terrorist groups” and urge policy makers, technology companies, practitioners and activists to adopt counter-strategies that match the sophistication of the far-right.
That the Alt-right is using NATO tactics is very interesting; for it was NATO that directed the Operation Gladio project, in which American and European secret service agencies, participated and facilitated the training and arming of neo-nazi and nationalist terrorists in Europe in order to inundate the continent with nationalism and anti-Russian sentiment.
One figure important to study in our inquiry on Gladio is Filip DeWinter, a Flemish separatist who wants to create an independent Flanders.
DeWinter wants to break up Flanders from Belgium, Catalonia from Spain, northern Italy from Italy, and will support any separatist movement, and this is all for his ultimate goal of creating a “white Europe”. As DeWinter himself said:
“Yes, Vlaams Blok will put our own people first and yes, Vlaams Blok will have a Flemish Flanders and YES, the Vlaams Blok will have a white Europe!”
And if you are thinking that this DeWinter is just a gentle, righteous patriot, then watch this video of him screaming these very words like Adolf Hitler:
That DeWinter was the same one that organized the 2007 Counterjihad Summit in the EU Parliament in Brussels (the event that gave legitimacy to the counterjihad), and that this event was financed by Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy (which, as we have shown extensively, is part of a CIA agenda) and that DeWinter supported, and continues to support, Catalonian separatism, alongside Flemish separatism and other rebellious movements, shows that there is a powerful network, of Europeans and Americans, interconnected with the higher echelons of power, to fragment Europe and usher in another world war.
In 2009, Filip DeWinter, alongside the president of the Flemish parliament, Marleen Vanderpoorten, and numerous other high ranking members of the Flemish parliament, met with members of the Catalonian parliament, including Josep Anglada. One Catalonian report describes the meeting:
In addition to the president, the delegation of the Flemish parliament was composed of two vice-presidents, Carl Decaluwé and Luk Van Nieuwenhuysen; the Secretaries of the Bureau Erik Matthijs and Dany Vandenbossche; the presidents of the Vlaams Belang (CD & V) parliamentary group, Filip Dewinter – who met the next day with Anglada – and Vlasms Progressieven ( SP-A ), Ludo Sannen , Nieuw-Vlaamse Alliantie ( N-VA ), Jan Peumans, and the environmental group GROEN , Rudy Daems; the Secretary General, Martine Goossens, and the Director of the European Office, Dries Bergen .
In the welcome speech Benach justified the meeting because “Catalans and Flemish represent two nations that in the context of the global world try to preserve their identity, language, culture and self-government, and not to confront anyone, but to participate in the global world with our voice.” “We defend freedom, and this is a value that unites us,” he added.
In 2010, Filip DeWinter, alongside far-right Austrian politician, Heinz-Christian Strache, met with Josep Anglada. DeWinter stated:
“Josep Anglada and PxC are the true hope of the European identity movement in Catalonia and Spain, so we are here supporting it, so that together we form a European resistance movement against mass immigration and Islamization of Europe”
In 2013, there was a meeting held in the EU capital of Brussels described as a “European identity event,” attended by Anglada, Filip Dewinter, Marine Le Pen, HC Strache, alongside representatives of the Lega Nord.
Who is behind the Catalan uprising against Spain? This is the real question that not a lot are talking about. What we have, behind this movement, are nationalists, Nazis and socialists.
On June 6th of 2017, Filip DeWinter, a leader of the right-wing Flemish nationalist party, Vlaams Belang, spoke for a Catalonian separatist party called Som Catalans, in which he said that the Vlaams Belang party has always supported Catalan secession from Spain. DeWinter stated that his party supported not only Catalan independence, but also “the struggle” to preserve the racial identity of Catalan. In DeWinter’s own words:
“As you know the Vlaams Belang always supported the Catalan people in their struggle for freedom, for independence, but also for their struggle to maintain their identity.”
He ended his speech by saying:
“Catalonia to the Catalans, Flanders to the Flemish, and Europe to the Europeans.”
DeWinter’s exhortation for a racial conflict for the cause of Catalan separatism is totally in line with his pan-European identitarian ideology. DeWinter is a Flemish separatist, meaning that he wants Flanders to become independent of Belgium. Belgium is broken up into different governments, mainly based on ethnic and linguistic differences, and although it is a single country, it may just fragment on account of racial tensions.
Belgium consists of a federal government, and there is also a separate government for the French speaking Walloons; a government for the French speakers in Brussels; there is a government for the German speakers, and a government for Belgium’s capital of Brussels. There is also a government for the Dutch speaking region of Flanders, which the Flemish separatists want to sever away and make an independent state. With such a divided country, its like a room filled with gas; all one has to do is throw in the match of division and the fragmentation will start. There is a video from 2010 of Nigel Farage, in the EU parliament building, declaring that Belgium is “not a proper nation,” thus instigating for the fragmentation of this country:
The largest party in both Flanders and Belgium, and also the largest Flemish and Belgian party in the European parliament, is the New Flemish Alliance. It is a successor party from the People’s Union (Volksunie). The People’s Union was a Flemish nationalist party that started out in the 1950s. In the 1970s, the People’s Union began to make a shift from Flemish separatism towards federalism, and this enraged its right-wing members who would break away and create a new party, the Vlaams Blok.
The Vlaams Blok had amongst its ranks members of the Vlaams Nationaal Verbond, which joined the Nazis during the German occupation of Belgium.
As shoebat.com has shown before, Filip DeWinter, one of the leaders of the Vlaams Blok (now the Vlaams Belang) is a neo-nazi who, in 1988 led a demonstration with a hundred or so neo-nazis to enter the Lommel German war cemetery where 40,000 Nazi German Wehrmacht soldiers are buried. With Filip DeWinter was the Nazi, Bert Eriksson who was a member of the Hitler Youth during the Second World War, and a Nazi fanatic who gained fame when, in 1978, he sojourned to Austria and unearthed the remains of the Nazi collaborator, Cyriel Verschaeve, and transported them back to Alveringem, as though they were holy relics for his Nazi cult.
Eriksson ran a neo-Nazi terrorist group called, Vlaamse Militanten Orde (Order of Flemish Militants), Belgium’s largest fascist organization. The founder of Vlaamse Miltanten Orde, Bob Maes, who was a member of a Nazi youth organization in Flanders, is friends with Theo Franken of the New Flemish Alliance and the current head of migration in Belgium. This shows that migration in Belgium is ran by a Nazi, and thus the migration of terrorists into Brussels is being done for a Nazi agenda, and secondly, it shows the network between the Vlaams Belang and the Free Flemish Alliance.
Vlaamse Militanten Orde collaborated with another fascist group, Front de la Jeunesse, which worked directly with NATO secret service agencies in Operation Stay Behind, more commonly known as Operation Gladio. Gladio, which is something that we have written extensively on, was an operation, commenced in the late forties, directed by the CIA alongside the secret service agencies of Western Europe and Turkey.
The whole operation of Gladio was directed from the NATO headquarters in Brussels, and its entire mission was to recruit neo-Nazis, old Nazis from the Third Reich and other nationalist groups, and to train and arm them to form an anti-Soviet paramilitary force. These terrorists were allowed to slaughter innocent people so that the press could blame pro-Soviet groups. The whole intention behind this was to stir up nationalist sentiment in Europe (we believe that they are doing the same thing with Islamic terrorism). In the 1980s, multiple members of both Vlaamse Militanten Orde and the Front de la Jeunesse were sentenced to prison for terrorism and leading racist demonstrations. As we read in one report:
Bert Eriksson, head of the Vlaamse Militanten Orde (VMO), Belgium’s largest neofascist organization, and Francis Dossogne, leader of the Front de la Jeunesse, have been slapped with prison sentences of one year and seven months, respectively.
Another 101 VMO and 14 Front members were found guilty in court of crimes ranging from assault to participation in racist demonstrations to membership in illegal organizations to carrying unauthorized weapons.
“I was surprised that no arrests had been made and I know that I did report myself what was going on — we were respecting killing like that — random killing or going into supermarkets and killing people, even kids.”
In March 28, 1991, the leading Belgium newspaper, Le Soir, caught a leaked message from the terrorists and published them. The message revealed how the terrorists were refusing to give the names of the killers to politicians, and how they were being backed by “Operation Stay Behind”, that is, Gladio:
“‘Give us the name!’ ‘Never!’ reply the ‘Gladiators’. The hour of truth has come. This is Brussels calling. Dear friends in Operation Stay Behind, section SDRA8 assures you of its very high esteem and thanks you for your devotion to your country. They guarantee that the pressures and threats will be empty and that undertakings will be honoured. Adolphe [Hitler] is looking well!’”
In the year 1990, the Belgium parliament released a report showing that the terrorist attacks were part of a conspiracy devised by the highest echelons of power to destabilize Brussels and, ultimately, Europe. The Swiss historian, Daniele Ganser, presents one statement on the report as such:
“According to the report, the killers were members or former members of the security forces — extreme right-wingers who enjoyed high-level protection and were preparing a right-wing coup.”
The Italian right-wing terrorist, Vincenzo Vinciguerra, said:
“The terrorist line was followed by camouflaged people, people belonging to the security apparatus through rapport or collaboration”.
The Front de la Jeunesse’s armed wing, Westland New Post, was headed by Paul Latinus, a fanatic National Socialist. Latinus was a nuclear science technician and also an informer for the Belgium intelligence service (Surete), before he was recruited by the US Defense Intelligence Service (the DIA). A Belgium journalist, writing for the magazine, Pour, wrote:
“Latinus had been implanted into Front de la Jeunesse with a specific task … To teach the Front de la Jeunesse how to carry out violent attacks, attacks on immigrant Arab cafes, how to organize military training camps, how to carry out surveillance. …In the training of their groups for active intervention, para military groups, they had to form and train elements from the extreme-right, ex para-commandos, ex militaries (gendarmes), militant rightest …. This kind of exercise involves the firing of machine-guns and the throwing of grenades. This makes noise and attracts attention.”
The Belgium journalist, Rene Haquin, describes that the terrorist group was modeled after the SS, and that each member was given a German name:
“Latinus was charged with forming a group, an army on the model of the SS. …They had a secret service, a security service in the group. Each member had a double name, a code-name, usually in German.” (For a detailed study on Gladio, see Daniele Ganser’s book, NATO’s Secret Armies)
The interconnection between the Flemish separatists and the Vlaamse Militanten Orde, the CIA’s and NATO’s collaboration with Belgian terrorists, and the Flemish support for Catalonian separatism, reveals a networks of nazi terrorists and hidden government support, conspiring for the breakdown of Europe.
Since the Alt-right is using NATO’s instructions, it would not surprise me at all if the Alt-right is just a continuation of the Gladio operation.
