Australia’s far right is having a breakout moment — perpetrating a major terrorist attack, allegedly coordinating with Liberal MPs [$], having a Senator openly oppose “black” migration to Australia, assaulting journalists, allegedly building pipe bombs, infiltrating the National Party, cutting preference deals with the National Party, and so on and so forth. This doesn’t occur spontaneously — the spread of these ideas has been going on for years, if not decades, without being taken seriously by the authorities. In that time, Andy Fleming (known as Slackbastard) has been researching right-wing extremist networks, exposing and documenting their ideas and organisations. When you see mainstream news reports on these topics, the underlying source of their intelligence is Andy’s blog, which he has produced voluntarily for fifteen years. He’s launched a Patreon to support his work — be generous.
