Neo-Nazi Group National Action Release Bizarre 'White Jihad' Video, As They Begin Recruitment Drive

The neo-nazi group behind the 'White Man March' in Liverpool, which resulted in its members cowering in a lost property depot at train station, have unveiled a teaser purporting to give an inside look into their movement, as they begin a recruitment drive.

In August last year members of National Action, having earlier threatened Liverpool would "go up in flames" if their march was stopped, had to take shelter after being overwhelmed by counter-protesters who pelted them with rubbish.

The group subsequently threatened to stage further marches, but they never went ahead. Earlier this month National Action tweeted that they are "now recruiting", and also released a teaser video, called 'The White Jihadi'.

The one-minute clip begins with Channel 4 News footage of National Action members at a demonstration in Newcastle. One member is seen telling supporters: "A war is brewing. It is inevitable. We are not the ones responsible for instigating it, but we will be the ones fighting it. And we fight." The group then performs a Nazi salute.

A voiceover from a news report then says: "They call themselves National Action, a far-right group formed in 2013, filmed here in Newcastle by Channel 4 News."

The voiceover explains the group is a "blend of neo-Nazi ideology and so-called White Jihadi training methods", as Arabic dance music and psychedelic graphics featuring Hitler flash on the screen.

National Action members are then pictured practicing various mixed martial arts holds and takedowns, before the screen flashes with: "Every generation needs something to fight for."

Numerous National Action members are then shown dressed in black, with their faces covered.

National Action were earlier this week named the "most organisationally sophisticated neo-nazi group" in the UK, in Hope Not Hate's State Of Hate 2016 report.

The anti-extremist group said National Action had its own internal internet forum and regularly uses the Dark Web.
