Episode 149 - Nazi Rage: The Murder of MP Jo Cox
Listen now
Description
In June 2016 the chaos of Brexit reached fever pitch in the UK. One week before the referendum vote was set to take place, politician Jo Cox was savagely shot and stabbed to death outside a public library in the middle of the day. According to eyewitnesses, the assailant screamed “Britain first” as he attacked the defenceless MP. The man was soon revealed to be Thomas Mair, a dedicated neo-Nazi whose decades-long rage had seemingly been sparked into violence by Brexit.  Listeners' Choice - vote here: https://www.britishpodcastawards.com/vote  Merch Here  Sources: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/nov/23/thomas-mair-slow-burning-hatred-led-to-jo-cox-murder https://www.theguardian.com/news/2019/dec/06/bedsit-nazi-man-killed-jo-cox-thomas-mair https://www.ft.com/mair https://www.lrb.co.uk/blog/2017/june/who-supplied-the-gun https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-38051593 https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/mystery-how-mp-jo-coxs-10586393 https://www.buzzfeed.com/patricksmith/police-dont-know-how-thomas-mair-got-the-gun-that-killed-jo https://www.isdglobal.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Impact-of-Brexit.pdf https://blogs.lse.ac.uk/brexit/2019/09/09/young-people-and-brexit-the-implications-for-the-far-right-and-scottish-independence/ https://www.politicshome.com/news/article/watch-labour-mp-confronts-dominic-cummings-in-parliament-over-boris-johnsons-disgraceful-language  https://www.stylist.co.uk/visible-women/jo-cox-foundation-feminism-great-get-together-anniversary/273334 https://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/18/world/europe/jo-cox-attack.html https://www.vox.com/2016/6/20/11963894/british-mp-jo-cox-death https://www.huckmag.com/perspectives/reportage-2/killing-british-politician-made-us-fearful-future/ https://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/uk/my-pain-is-too-much-jo-cox-s-last-words-as-she-lay-dying-in-street-1.2688724 https://theintercept.com/2016/06/17/why-is-the-killer-of-british-mp-jo-cox-not-being-called-a-terrorist/?comments=1 https://www.businessinsider.com/boris-johnson-tells-mps-deliver-brexit-jo-cox-death-threats-2019-9?r=US&IR=T https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2010/apr/04/bnp-mark-collett-nick-griffin https://time.com/4571067/jo-cox-thomas-mair-trial/ https://www.npr.org/2019/04/02/708999681/turner-diaries-influence-on-white-nationalists-continues-to-grow?t=1589896142917 https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/09/how-the-turner-diaries-changed-white-nationalism/500039/ https://www.nytimes.com/2001/06/09/us/behind-a-book-that-inspired-mcveigh.html https://www.seattlepi.com/lifestyle/blogcritics/article/Book-Review-The-Turner-Diaries-by-Andrew-893616.php   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
