Teenage neo-Nazis jailed for inciting terror attacks on Prince Harry and other targets.
The two Polish-born British residents reportedly posted an image of Prince Harry and accused him of being a “race traitor” last year were convicted Tuesday of promoting terrorism and neo-Nazi propaganda online, according to news reports.
Michal Szewczuk and Oskar Dunn-Koczorowski were members of a group calling itself Sonnenkrieg Division, described as the “third generation” of the banned terrorist group National Action.
After setting up online accounts for the faction last year, the pair shared a series of propaganda posters featuring swastikas and the Nazi “black sun” symbol alongside their own logo.
One poster showed Prince Harry having a gun pointed at his head with blood splatters and the caption:
“See ya later, race traitor.”
The image was shared online in August last year, just a few months after he married mixed race former actress Meghan Markle.
Szewczuk, of Wyther Park in Leeds, was jailed for four years and three months, and Dunn-Koczorowski, of St Albans Avenue in west London, was sentenced to an 18-month detention and training order after pleading guilty to two counts of encouraging terrorism and five counts of possession of terrorist material, including the White Resistance Manual and the Al Qaeda Trading Manual.
The defendants appeared in court via video link from Belmarsh prison and gave no reaction as they were sentenced.
Prosecutor Naomi Parsons told the court that the posts, which were shared across three accounts by the two teenagers;
“convey a message of the threat of and use of serious violence against others, in order to advance a political, ideological and racial cause (neo-Nazism) and in this way encourage terrorism”.
She said targets included Jewish people, non-white people and anyone;
“perceived to be complicit in the perpetuation of multiculturalism”.
The pair, who had only interacted online before their arrest, shared Sonnenkrieg Division propaganda under pseudonyms on the “free speech” social network Gab and gaming forums, while Szewczuk also authored his own violent blog. He sipped water and gave no reaction in the dock as quotes justifying the rape of women and children to further an Aryan race were read aloud to the court on Monday.
A Sonnenkrieg Divison poster also called for people to “rape the cops”, with an image showing a man in a skull mask grabbing a female officer, and another showed a white woman being hanged and read: “Race mixing whores get the f***ing rope.”
Others praised Anders Breivik, the terrorist who massacred 77 people in 2011 attacks targeting Norway’s government and Labour Party.
“The considerable amount of material they have posted on social media channels not only reflects their extremist beliefs but was intended to encourage others to carry out despicable acts. Both men have developed and evolved their interest in the extreme right-wing ideology over time through research and connecting with like-minded individuals.”
The officer, who is head of Counter Terrorism Policing North East, appealed for the public to report material that glorifies terrorism, and pleaded to;
“tackle all forms of toxic extremism which has the potential to threaten public safety and security”.
Both men are reported to have been members of the neo-Nazi group the System Resistance Network (SRN), and Dunn-Koczorowski was part of National Action before it was banned as a terrorist organisation in 2016. The prohibition caused the group to split into regional factions that operated under new names in an attempt to evade the law.
A police search discovered flags of the Atomwaffen Division and Iron March fascist forum, as well as a phone with a screen saver of a hooded man holding the “black sun”.
The pair admitted encouraging terrorism, while Szewczuk also pleaded guilty to five counts of possessing terrorist documents including the White Resistance Manual, The Anarchist Cookbook, an al-Qaeda manual and Isis supporters’ guide to obtaining weapons, making bombs and hiding from security services.
Detective chief superintendent Martin Snowden said:
“Dunn-Koczorowski and Szewczuk clearly see themselves as superior to the majority of society and they feel their duty is to express their beliefs, in turn teaching others”.
The sentencing came days after new figures showed that the proportion of white terror suspects being arrested in the UK is at the highest level for 15 years.
What possess these people?
And if anyone has the slightest bit of sympathy for them you know where the door is.
DFLA are against all extremism.
