Blair Cottrell

This is part two of a two-part series on Australia's fringe-dwelling far right. Read part one here.

United Patriots Front (2015 -- present)

The UPF are the hard-right group du jour thanks in part to Channel Seven's recent portrayal of their current leader, Blair Cottrell, as a concerned citizen leading a neighborhood watch group in response to African gang crime. He is in fact a serial offender. He's been convicted of arson, stalking, making threats to kill and breaching intervention orders and has served time. He has said Adolf Hitler's picture should be hung in every classroom and Mein Kampf issued to every student. He has bragged of using  "violence and terror" to manipulate women and said Jews are "as small physically as they are degenerate in character... the white races are coming for you."
