Having evolved/degenerated over the last few years into the local Volksfront franchise / a lone wEIrdØ in Tasmania / a wacky racist ‘Reverend’ (amusingly nicknamed ‘The Rabbi’ by his ‘mates’), the dwindling fortunes of the ‘national anarchists’ in Australia have recently been revived by a young wingnut from Western Australia named Nicholas Cole…
Or at least, that’s what the staff at Whitelaw Towers (WLT) have been blabbing.
Precisely why Jim Perren and Peter Campbell (the two Internet warriors who patrol the Towers) have leaked this information is unknown, but it would seem to form part of an ongoing vendetta, one directed at any person associated with the Australia First Party’s rivals in the Australia Protectionist Party (APP).
And, apart from espousing ‘national anarchism’, Nicholas once supported the APP.
‘Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill’, as they say.
Here’s what WLT had to say about Nicholas back in March 2010:
He comes from a reasonably well off Middle Class family, y’know, ‘his daddy’s rich and his mama’s good lookin’ type of thing. He has a guaranteed job for life, if there can be such a thing today, working in the family business so he doesn’t have the spectre of living on the street hanging over him. He has a comfy safety net. He has the obligatory Southern Cross stars tattooed on his upper arm. He likes to drink and party hard. He fancies himself as a ‘Southern Cross Soldier’ despite his nerdy looks and scrawny physique.
In addition to the Southern Cross, the staff at WLT (or somebody acting on their behalf) have since made it known that Nicholas also has a tattoo of (what is assumed to be) the Cole family crest on his chest.
He has flirted with everything from Civic Nationalism, through National Anarchism to National Bolshevism and now he seems to be dipping a toe into the Christian Zionist pond with the Australian Protectionist Party.
Nicholas has also established an online association for right-wing students.
On the Australian New Nation Forum he was posting under the name ‘OZ’ and managed to eventually get himself banned for his persistent divisive and contrary attitude to all other members. His strategy (if he ever had one) of divide and conquer was apparent to some. He was a grenade lobber. Rolling incendiary comments into Forum threads and basically just thinking out loud. Much of his stuff reads like a stream of (un)consciousness.
Youthful exuberance is one thing but scatterbrained confusion is another. His virtually pubescent lack of impulse control is really quite inexcusable. He is not Fourteen any more, he is Twenty Two years old!
Nicholas turns 22 in March.
Okay, so he’s still relatively young and needs to learn a lot and should probably, on one level, be pitied, but he simply refuses to even exercise any self discipline let alone accept the counsel of older and wiser heads. Believe us, we know several who have tried and failed to talk some sense into him.
So we bet many of you reading this are thinking ‘So what? Who cares? He’s hanging with Dazza and the boys over at A.P.P. now, so why not let him cause chaos and confusion for THEM? After all, there’s no love lost between WLT and A.P.P.’
Well, the point is this. No good can ever come of having wild cards (jokers) like this circulating in the wider Nationalist scene. As he swiftly makes and sheds friends and acquaintances he will naturally sow confusion, doubt, despondency and poor morale which tends to spread rapidly in the Nationalist loop.
He has been caught out blatantly lying several times. He was at one time simultaneously in contact with the leaders of at least three Nationalist groups expressing totally different views to each of them. This only came to light when one became curious about this strange young man and started comparing notes with the others. Two other groups were approached following the cold shoulders from these and he failed yet again to insinuate himself into the trust of his new found ‘friends’.
But he is nothing if not, almost desperately, persistent. He is still currently active in his pursuits and is posting as ‘Libertarian’ on the Australian Protectionist Party’s ‘Australian Identity Forums’. Judging by his recent comments on a thread that floated the idea of starting an A.P.P. ‘youth wing’ (how original. Not.) he has not learned a thing. He has changed his tune once again and is now bagging National Socialists despite having been a former fan of Strasserism. He’ll be volunteering to fly to Tel Aviv and grow oranges on the A.P.P. Kibbutz at this rate.
Really, he is simply too much.
In keeping with Whitelaw Towers’ policy of only ‘outing’ Red Scum and White Traitors we have resisted publishing his file as we deem him, at this stage, to be more of a nuisance rather than a real threat but if any genuine White Nationalists out there are concerned that he might be a danger to them or their group then just drop us a line and we’ll talk about it.
Translating this final paragraph into plain English, it would seem that rather than publish their ‘file’ on their blog, the ‘staff’ at WLT have simply circulated it to interested parties. Sadly for its adherents, this would now seem to be standard practice in the White Nationalist movement in Australia, and if our sources are correct, Cole’s ‘file’ is only the first of many.
Of course, we may be wrong: as a general rule, the source of this kind of information is not disclosed, but as the information on Nicholas came to us second-hand, we feel no particular obligation to protect WLT, and must also take into account, first, their previous ‘outing’ of Nicholas and, second, their decision to remove that post from their blog. It may also be the case that Nicholas’ file was provided by WLT to others on condition it not be made more widely available. If so, then WLT has gambled – and lost.
Finally, as we have indicated above, we understand that other ‘files’ on other persons active in the White nationalist movement will soon be made available to sources hostile to it. The precise origins of this information, and the motivations of those providing access to it, remain obscure. Typically, disgruntled current or former supporters leak information for a variety of reasons, based on either personal resentment, political conflict, or both: we can only affirm that we have rarely encountered more snakes in the grass than among those who subscribe to White nationalism.
