The UK group Hope Not Hate, in its annual State of Hate report, cited O9A as a major influence on Nazi terror groups both in the United States and Europe.
“O9A seeks to harness supernatural forces and overthrow the alleged ‘Nazarene/Magian’ (Jewish) influence on society, reduce the population of ‘mundanes’ through acts of extreme barbarism, and usher in a new imperial aeon (age) ruled by a race of Satanic supermen who would colonise the solar system,” the group wrote in this year’s report.
Information on the charges is sparse for now, but the ONA has been deemed an extremist group by, well, everyone… and for good reason.
Messages seen by the Sunday Mail endorse sexual assault and murder. One chilling text called for the bombing of a Christian school.
The ONA’s own documents encourage “culling” of people.
One reads: “Culling can be done either during an occult ritual or by practical means such as assassination or staged ‘accidents’.”
For what it’s worth, The Satanic Temple (which isn’t extremist, espouses peace, and has no connection to this group) has nothing positive to say about the other group. Spokesperson Lucien Greaves sent along this message this afternoon:
One need not worry that the Order of Nine Angles represents some type of terroristic occultic uprising looking to harness military information toward some design of world conquest. ONA is actually an old, dippy mystical collection of low-quality minds who never evolved past the juvenile thrill of the pursuit of evil, appropriating whatever best seemed to fit that image.
It’s a “Satanic” organization that was run by a neo-Nazi who described himself as a convert to a form of radical Islam and borrowed heavily from H.P. Lovecraft, if that gives you any sense of the laughably confused nonsensical stupidity of these cosplaying wizards.
I suppose that the point of this story is that we are lucky that military secrets weren’t leaked to anybody who is at least capable of tying their own shoes.
There you go. Reason for hope in an otherwise eyebrow-raising story.
