A member of a now defunct group branded neo-Nazi has been active in a new far right political organisation called Homeland, The Ferret can reveal. Tayside-based James Munro of the Scottish Nationalist Society (SNS), attended Homeland’s summer camp in June this year. Munro and another former SNS member, Jordon Murphy, also joined far right activists at a Scottish demonstration against asylum seekers in Erskine, Renfrewshire this year. During his time with SNS, Munro shared racist and white supremacist views and the group’s content on social media, including an image of himself performing the Nazi salute while holding the group’s flag. Politicians responding to The Ferret’s findings have branded Homeland “a disgrace”. One MSP has written to the justice secretary asking what actions the Scottish Government is taking in light of Homeland’s Erskine demos. Anti-racism campaigners claimed Homeland and its predecessor, Patriotic Alternative Scotland, of using concerns about the housing of asylum seekers in hotels to promote their own agendas. But Homeland dismissed SNS – which was active throughout 2020 – as a “cranky little group” that disbanded prior to Homeland’s formation. Munro had been involved as a “disenfranchised” teenager but had since “grown up”, it claimed.
