Never let it be said that this blog only attacks the left. Consider the story of Tristan Morgan, the folk-singing neo-Nazi who almost incinerated his own head while he was trying to burn down a synagogue in Exeter in 2018 (human torch action at 1:16):
Mind you, if he’s a neo-Nazi then he’s probably better described as part of the racist left, rather than the far right, as ITV call him:
A far-right extremist who was engulfed in a ball of flames when he set fire to an historic synagogue on a day commemorating the Holocaust has been locked up in hospital indefinitely.
Hospital X-Ray technician and self-styled folk singer Tristan Morgan, 52, was spotted walking away carrying a petrol can and laughing as smoke spewed from the 18th Century synagogue in Exeter on July 21 last year …
The defendant, from Exeter in Devon, admitted arson with intent to endanger life, encouraging terrorism by publishing a song entitled “White Man” to live-streaming website Soundcloud, and having a copy of the White Resistance Manual.
He does sound a bit mental:
Mr Richardson said: “He appeared to be laughing, while trying to flatten his hair which she described as looking like it had been ‘whooshed up’.
Morgan appeared “cocky” as he drove off in a Mercedes Vito van, according to the eyewitness account …
As he opened the door to officers, the defendant, who smelt of petrol and burning, exclaimed: “That didn’t take long”.
He had burns to his hands, forehead and hair, the court heard.
I’d be interested to know how people like this voted in the general election. I suspect a lot of so-called ‘far-right’ extremists voted for Labour.
