Swindon Council Employee Exposed as Neo-Nazi

We can reveal that a Swindon Council employee has been leading a secret life as a neo-Nazi and recording songs expressing genocidal fantasies. Leon Mayer, of Swindon, Wiltshire, is a member of fascist party Patriotic Alternative (PA)’s South West region and a systems development officer for Swindon Borough Council.

Under his fascist pseudonym, “Kumquat Nationalist”, Mayer has created and shared a litany of bizarre and offensive content, expressing abhorrent racist views. His YouTube channel featured a song titled “Day of the Rope”, which he wrote and recorded, and, in which he fantasises about the murder of “race traitors”.

“The Day of the Rope” is a neo-Nazi trope taken from The Turner Diaries, a notorious fictionalised account of white supremacist guerrilla warfare and revolution that has inspired far-right terrorist attacks including the Oklahoma City Bombing and the 1999 London nail-bombings. The term refers to the mass lynching of “race traitors” by white supremacist insurgents. Mayer’s song includes the lyrics: “The tables are turning, the flames are burning as you hang from lamp posts, the day of the rope” / “no mercy for traitors” / “bodies… fill the street”. The video recorded by Mayer features a copy of The Turner Diaries, and zooms in on the “day of the rope” passage from the book, which depicts a mass execution of people in interracial relationships. Mayer’s YouTube channel also featured a song written as a cryptic ode to Hitler.

We identified Mayer with the help of leaks from the far-right social network Gab, published in February 2021. We then began monitoring his pseudonymous social media accounts and were able to photograph him attending multiple PA events.
