A white supremacist active as recently as the start of this year says today he is publicly renouncing 40 years of hate. Speaking on Channel 4 News he comes out as gay for the first time – and admits to a violent past.
After a lifetime of involvement with the far-right Kevin Wilshaw announces on Channel 4 News that he is leaving the movement – at the same time publicly coming out as gay.
The well known National Front organiser in the 1980s was still active in white supremacist groups earlier this year – including speaking at events.
But tonight on Channel 4 News he explains for the very first time why he is publicly disavowing the movement – sharing his secrets, explaining how he was both a Neo-Nazi and of Jewish heritage , while admitting to violent acts and what motivated his hatred.
During the interview Wilshaw says that he became interested in the white supremacist movement because he had no friends and wanted to be part of something.
I think this guy could be the poster boy for joining an organization that is diametrically opposed to your self interests.
He's like a black Republican, only even worse.
Wilshaw said that while he witnessed violence toward minorities and others it did not impact him until it was directed at him.
I am going to guess that empathy is not high on his list of attributes.
