A son kills a father and the question is why. In the case of 10-year-old Joseph Hall, the answer seemed simple: The boy had been raised around hate."

Earlier today, the leader of Golden Dawn and three deputies were arrested (BBC
) after the neonazi party was declared a criminal organisation. Two more deputies are wanted. The criminal investigation started after the murder of a 34-year-old rapper Pavlos Fyssas
that sparked waves of protests
and a police shakeup
as the ties between Golden Dawn and the police are under investigation. Supporters of the neonazi party knifed a woman
(video interview) the day after the murder of Fyssas and have caused violence against immigrants to skyrocket. The police connects Golden Dawn to 30 such attacks. This map of attacks on migrants
provides more details about separate incidents. Previously: 1 2 3

Everybody knows that gangsta rap promotes sexism, homophobia... and fascism. Take Bushido
, for instance - the Berlin rapper of Tunisian descent that all the neo-Nazis love. Confused
Well, so are the Germans
. And then we're not even talking about Fler
, whose "This is black-red-gold, hard and proud!"
nationalist lyrics never fail to piss off the German papers (in German)
, and who likes to pose in his videos with a nice symbolic eagle. (Then again, Helmut Kohl didn't mind
Still, Fler's flag-waving, eagle-loving rhymes are no match for Bushido's "Salute, stand to attention, I am the leader like 'A'"
. The A stands for Adolf, you know.

From the jawdropping-stupidity-in-advertising dept:
Target recently pulled
its "eight eight" line of clothing upon learning of its neo-Nazi undertones. At the same time, British sneaker pimp Umbro got spanked for naming a new line of kicks "Zyklons" — which may seem like a meaningless Decepticon-esque fake word unless you happen to remember that the Nazis used Zyklon B (hydrocyanic acid) in their death chambers. But, OK, still, some marketing twerp that doesn't know his world history, working for Umbro — fine. Pull the sneakers, no harm, no foul.
But Umbro is not the only manufacturer trying to get some play out of the Zyklon name. Turns out that Siemens — a German
manufacturer — wanted to have a new, Zyklon-branded line of appliances
. Among the to-be-branded Zyklon products?

Unlikely Allies Bound by a Common Hatred.
"Herr von Laden is an example for our children."
The bridge between radical Muslims and the neo Nazis in Europe and the United States.
In 1991, German neo-Nazis tried to form a "Condor Legion" to fight alongside Iraqis against the U.S.-led international coalition. More recently, members of the European far right have journeyed to Baghdad to express solidarity with Saddam Hussein.

The Norwegian neo-nazi organization Vigrid is suing
* on behalf of Nordic-looking women
seeking damages after suffering from blonde jokes. Are blonde jokes racial slurs?* Sorry, link only available in Norwegian, but you get the idea
