A neo-Nazi couple called on refugees to be gassed, black people to be killed and the Chinese to be turned into BIOFUEL in a string of vile racist messages, a court heard. Adam Thomas, 22, and Claudia Patatas, 38, are accused of being members of the banned far-right organisation National Action.
Jurors were previously told how the pair named their baby after Adolf Hitler and posed with the child wearing Ku Klux Klan robes and in front of Nazi flags.
On Tuesday, Birmingham Crown Court heard messages from an encrypted online chat group called “Triple K Mafia”.
It was set up by former members of National Action after the group was banned on December 16, 2016, following the murder of MP Jo Cox.
The court was told Patatas sent messages on the chat group calling on a convicted terrorist to kill two black people he was sitting near to.
Joel Wilmore, 24, of Stockport, Greater Manchester, who has already been convicted of being a member of National Action, posted a message on February 17, 2017.
It read: “Sat in front of two black [people] I think they are talking English?
“And the male n****r keeps making these tutting noises.
“How are these animals ever considered people?
“The unintelligent babble by these two monkeys is driving me crazy.”
Patatas - using the name “Sigrun” - replies: “Kill them. What about a kristallnacht?”
Kristallnacht is a reference to the organised violence carried out against Jews by the Nazis and German civilians in 1938.
In the same group, Thomas said black and Chinese people should be used to make biofuel.
Alexander Deakin, the Midlands leader of National Action, wrote: “We should just synthesise c****s, street s**tters, n*****s down into biofuel.”
Thomas replies: “That’s the best idea yet, actually chuckling at that one.
“So many billions of c****s and g****s to fuel my car. The n*****s would actually be contributing that way.
“Poor old n****r Jim can continues working even after I throw him down the n****r hole.”
Thomas later suggested refugees should be gassed.
He wrote: “Zyklon B for the ref u G [refugee]”.
Zyklon B is the cyanide-based pesticide which was used in the gas chambers of German concentration camps.
Thomas also ranted against the British flag, the Royal Family, global warming and veganism.
In messages posted on February 16, 2017, Thomas said: “I don’t see the British flag as anything special.
“It is not the flag of the ethnic Brits or the white race, it is the flag of the British Government which is just a giant corporation, a huge supermarket which opposes us.
“It has as much value to me as the flag of Asda or Lidl, only Asda and Lidl don’t threaten you with private armies and claim authority over you.
“The Royal Family have never been anything good.
“We were stupid for ever allowing them to dictate every aspect of our lives and now when we actually could use them to help us from the British Government, they do absolutely nothing.
“Never needed them and never wanted them.
“The whole global warming thing is BS.
“Even the Conservatives admit that, for all how c****d they are, they can see it for what it is - an attempt to bring in yet more taxes on emissions and CO2 and ALSO to shut down local market in order to create global economic reliance i.e. globalism.”
The couple, of Banbury, Oxon., deny the charges along with co-accused Daniel Bogunovic, 27, of Leicester.
The trial continues.
