What can white nationalism lead to?

White nationalism has negative implications for both society and the individuals involved.

In other countries white nationalism has lead to violent extremism and murder, with recent cases occurring in North America, Norway and England. We want to ensure that these type of incidences do not happen in Australia.

For the individuals who take part in these extremist activities, their involvement may eventually have terrible consequences that lead to the person being stigmatised by mainstream society. Things that have happened to other white nationalists are:

  • they become even more socially isolated;
  • they could do things they later regret such as getting facial or racist tattoos or become addicted to drugs or alcohol;
  • if their employer finds out about their involvement with white nationalism, they could lose their job; and
  • if their membership leads them to illegal behaviour they will be convicted of criminal offences.
