As The mob has attacked the US capital Last week, far-right extremists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis spread this hatred around the world and encouraged violence. Now experts are warning that there have been attacks or attempts on the US Congress like last week The German parliament is in turmoil May be carried in the days ahead.
On Wednesday, the House gave him a vote to vote Unprecedented second time, Trump has issued a statement calling for peace. “In light of the reports of further protests, I urge that there should be no violence, no law and order and no vandalism. … I urge all Americans to reduce tensions and calm moods, “he wrote.
But for extremists who see chaos in the United States, the message may be too late. Samantha Kutner, an associate at the Khalifa Ihler Institute, told BuzzFeed News that far-right groups around the world viewed the uprising as “an attempt at mass recruitment” and a “fight for white supremacy.”
Since the uprising, BuzzFeed News has monitored the social media accounts of about three dozen far-right extremist groups and leaders outside the United States. Members of the extremist group have called for more bloodshed among lesser-known but less dangerous entities, including the Scandinavian Nordic Resistance Movement, the Caspound Italy, the Ukrainian Azov Movement and the Australian and British Proud Boy.
A neo-Nazi channel on the messenger app Telegram has called on its hundreds of subscribers to take up arms and “enjoy the upcoming deadly carnival.”
Another channel like this on the platform shared a post asking thousands of followers to start believing in their “accelerating fantasies” because “you are in one”.
Another right-wing popular social network, the Telegram, and other Gabe extremists have launched a “Million Militia March” on January 20, urging supporters to join armed marches in state capitals from Saturday.
Although mainstream social media organizations such as Facebook and Twitter have begun removing accounts related to Trump supporters and far-right extremists, and Apples And Google The far-right platform has completely abandoned the parlor, leaving behind numerous violent and sinister messages.
“I hope that foreign far-right parties will find enthusiasm by January 6,” said Cynthia Miller-Idris, an extremist researcher and author. Hate in the homeland, Told BuzzFeed News. “After the failed right-wing attack on the German parliament four months ago, it will be celebrated as an example of ‘success’ on the far right around the world and a victory for many groups.”
In August, during a demonstration in Berlin against the German government CoronavirusRelated restrictions, hundreds right-wing The protesters tried to storm the country’s legislature by breaking a barrier. Stunned, the police were able to stop the crowd within minutes.
Since January, most extremist channels have grown by dozens, if not hundreds, of members, many of whom have started sharing each other’s messages for the first time.
Jason Blazakis, a senior research fellow at the Soufan Center, told BuzzFeed News that there has long been some coordination between far-right extremists abroad and U.S.-based extremists abroad. But after last week’s uprising, “these connections could probably be tougher as they are seen as a success for the right,” he said.
Sergei Korotkikh, a neo-Nazi of Belarusian descent and leader of the Azov movement in Ukraine, whom the State Department called a nationalist hate group, cheered for the racist move on his telegram channel. He wrote to his nearly 23,000 followers, “Finally the whites have decided to work and the Capitol will take over the building.” That’s fine – this is a no-brainer, though. The whites are still here and we know what to do. “
In another post, Korotkich shared an image in red, white and blue writing that reads “Hate America Again”.
Azov has worked hard to grow over the past five years Relations with European and American white officials. One of them is Robert Rundo, an American white supremacist in the movement for violent uprising. Rundo and other RAM members participated in a rally in Charlottesville in August 2011. Rundo’s Ram Cohorst was at least one of Vincent James Fox, Spoken Capital riots have been seen.
Rundo, however, was not there. Currently living in Serbia to avoid lawsuits in the United States for crimes in Charlottesville and California, he spoke of violence from his telegram channel, saying unrest could lead to white domination.
“Many of us have talked endlessly for opportunities like the ones we see today. For those who have ever wanted to take a position … today could be the day, “he wrote to his more than 4,000 customers.
This sentiment was echoed by Denis Nikitin, a Russian mixed martial arts fighter and a resident of Ukraine, a neo-Nazi. Nikitin, whose White Rex clothing company Popular among U.S. white nationalists, Compares the riot to the Ku Klux Klan of March 1925 down Pennsylvania Avenue.
Although international extremists now seem to be giving their moral support only to the United States, Blazakis said they could soon deliver more than that.
“I see actors abroad providing material support to far-right actors based in the U.S. in the future – if that hasn’t already happened,” he said. “Since there is no far-right terrorist group approved by the US government, there is nothing to stop the flow of money. This is a big weakness. “
Kutner sees U.S.-based extremist groups raising money to help participants in the uprising. BuzzFeed saw links to at least four foreign right-wing accounts in the News Telegram and shared links to promote mob violence.
Miller-Idris said more bloodshed in the United States and abroad would have been possible if authorities in the United States had not held those responsible, including Capitol rioters and Trump, accountable.
“It is imperative to send a strong message that this kind of violence is a betrayal and that the law will be brought to justice,” he said.
