A leak of online chat logs has exposed a faction of neo-Nazis in Australia who sought to hijack the youth division of the country’s National party, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. The chats come a chat room on the video game chat platform Discord, called “Vibrant Diversity,” that was in fact a home for neo-Nazis, white supremacists and bigots of many varieties from around the world. The group connected far right figures from Australia with counterparts in the U.S. Last year, the anti-fascist group Unicorn Riot released leaked records from the chat room. “They described it as an elite group,” said Chris Schiano, a member of Unicorn Riot. “There is a fair amount of influential people from the alt-right in it.” Justin Beulah and Lisa Sandford were among the people in the group. They flirted in chatrooms with jokes about killing non-whites and “swastika cupcakes.” They posted and commented on racist and violent memes. Beulah at one point noted that he was in a university class with “three Jews.” Sandford attempted to infiltrate the Young Nationals, the National Party’s youth wing.
