DerFuehrerCOMMENT: “Lone Nuts” håve been driving much of the news cycle, garnering much political attention by people and institutions determined on mining the incidents for political capital. The Trumpenkampfverbande is an excellent example. The French National Front, the Alternative For Germany, the Sweden Democrats and others benefit from the mayhem, which resonates around the world.

Initially, Ali David Sonboly–the 1-year-old killer of nine in Munich, Germany. Now, it turns out that he was of Nazi orientation. It might be interesting to learn the name and associations and possible political views (if any) of the unnamed weapons dealer who used the dark web to sell the murder weapon to Sonboly.

It is interesting to observe that the “lone nuts” are not so “lone”! The truck driver who crashed into a crowd at Nice was initially reported to be a loner and (not necessarily) a jihadist. Then accomplices were arrested and it does, in fact, seem as though he was, in fact, influenced by online “jihadism.”

Micah H. Johnson, after being reported as part of a team, was then dismissed as a “lone nut.” It turns out that he was under the sway of the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party, both hate-spewing, anti-Semitic black nationalist groups.

The Baton Rouge (LA) shooter–Gavin Long–was a “Sovereign Citizen” and also had reported links with the Nation of Islam.

Recall, also, that this “leaderless resistance” strategy was defended by Citizen Greenwald when he was an attorney. Greenwald’s efforts protected advocates of this strategy against civil liability.

“Munich Gunman Who Murdered Nine in Munich Worshipped Hitler and Saw It as an ‘Honour’ that They Shared the Same Birthday” by Julian Robinson; The Daily Mail; 7/28/2016.

Munich gunman Ali David Sonboly worshipped Adolf Hitler and saw it as an ‘honour’ that he shared the same birthday as the Nazi leader, it has been revealed.

Sonboly, 18, shot nine people dead at a shopping centre in the southern German city on Friday before turning his handgun on himself.

The German-Iranian considered himself ‘Aryan’ and had built up resentment against Arabs and Turks, who, it is claimed, bullied him at school.

It has now emerged that the teenager took the fact that he was born on the same day of the year as Hitler – April 20 – as an ‘honour’.

The Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper said he was a racist who held extreme right wing views about foreigners and minorities. . . .

. . . . Police say the teenager was obsessed with mass killings – including Norwegian rightwing fanatic Anders Behring Breivik’s 2011 massacre – and spent a year preparing for the shooting spree. . . .

“Germans Arrest Suspected Supplier of Gun to Munich Gunman” by Alison Smale; The New York Times; 8/16/2016.

. . . . The police have arrested a 31-year-old German man suspected of selling a gun and bullets to a teenager who killed nine people in a rampage last month in Munich, which sent the city into a panicky lockdown amid fears of a terrorist attack.

The man was detained on Tuesday in the central German city of Marburg after being lured into a weapons deal with investigators and boasting that he had supplied the gun and ammunition in the Munich rampage, the authorities said Tuesday. They said he had sold the gun to the teenager, Ali Sonboly, in May, and 350 bullets in July, four days before Mr. Sonboly committed his crime.

Last week, Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière proposed tightening Germany’s already-strict gun laws, specifically tracing “dark web” connections.

On Tuesday, a prosecutor in Frankfurt, Alexander Badle, said the arms dealer, who was not named, had come to the attention of special units fighting internet crime after he sold arms and ammunition to a 62-year-old bookkeeper in North Rhine-Westphalia State, and to a 17-year-old high schooler in the state of Hesse.

Officers who searched the bookkeeper’s home on July 27 found a pistol and ammunition he had obtained in a weapons swap with the arms dealer in June, Mr. Badle’s statement said.

A search of the 17-year-old’s home in early August turned up a rapid-fire weapon and 157 bullets he had bought from the dealer for 1,150 euros, or nearly $1,300, the statement added.

Both customers used the dark web to make their deals, Mr. Badle said. . . .

  1. The Munich Murderer, David Sonboly, was a Nazi – his act was committed on July 22, the same day Anders Breivik did his, (see the photo of Anders Breivik below, making a Nazi/Hiel Hitler salute at his trial).

    Dailey Mail (UK) July 23, 2016:

    Munich murderer, 18, ‘had a picture of mass killer Anders Breivik as his WhatsApp profile’ as police probe ‘obvious link between two’

    Munich maniac Ali David Sonboly was obsessed with mass shootings and even had a photograph of notorious murderer Anders Breivik as his WhatsApp profile picture, according to his former classmates. 

    The 18-year-old killer, who police described as being ‘deranged’, may have planned his attack to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the Norwegian’s massacre, prosecutors have said. 

    Police who searched the Iranian-German’s room in his parents’ house – two miles from where he murdered nine helpless people – found written material on attacks and ‘spree shootings’.

    According to German newspaper Bild.de, his former classmates at his school said Sonboly used an image of Breivik – who brutally murdered 77 people in July, 2011 – as his picture on WhatsApp.

    Pupils at the school where Munich murderer Ali David Sonboly went have revealed he used an image of Anders Breivik as his WhatsApp profile picture

    Munich police chief says no link between shooter and ISISHubertus Andrae, Munich police chief, said there was an ‘obvious’ link between Friday’s attack – which left nine people dead – and the fifth anniversary of Breivik’s massacre. 

    Sonboly, who claimed he was bullied at school, used a Glock 17 semi-automatic handgun to kill the victims – aged 13 to 45 – and started his deadly rampage at a McDonald’s restaurant in the city.

    Officers also found he had a book, Why Kids Kill: Inside The Minds of School Shooters, in his bag when he started firing at helpless children who tried to run away.

    Sonboly did not have a licence for the weapon he used – which is a popular firearm used by law enforcement agencies worldwide.

    The shootings at the shopping centre come five years to the day that far-right activist Breivik cairred out his murderous attack.  

    On July 22, 2011 Breivik exploded a car bomb in Oslo that killed eight people before driving to the island of Utoya where he gunned down 69 people – mostly teenagers – at a youth summer camp.

    Norway paid an emotional tribute today to those who died with church services and other events marking what the prime minister called ‘one of the darkest days in Norwegian history.’

    Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit laid wreaths at the government offices in the Norwegian capital, Oslo, where later they attended a memorial service at Oslo Cathedral.

    The service also included victims’ families, friends and representatives of a left-wing youth group that hosted the camp on Utoya.

    Solberg said: ‘We still see traces of the terrorist acts. The missed ones will always be there. Time does not heal all wounds. The biggest impact is felt inside us as human beings.’

    In 2012, Breivik was convicted of mass murder and terrorism and given a 21-year prison sentence that can be extended for as long as he’s deemed dangerous to society. Legal experts say he will likely be locked up for life.

    His attacks traumatized the nation of 5 million, where an estimated one in four people were affected through connections with family, friends or acquaintances of the victims.

    NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Norway’s prime minister at the time, said he had painful memories of that fateful day – July 22, 2011.

    ‘It hurts to hear all the names read out,’ Stoltenberg said. ‘But it’s also good to be with other people who were affected that day, and we give each other support and comfort.’

    In the afternoon, a ceremony was held on Utoya, a small island on a lake surrounded by wooded hills, 40 kilometers (25 miles) northwest of Oslo. 
    It reopened to the public a year ago, when 1,000 youth organization students enrolled for a camp held in memory of the victims.
