Martin Sellner (1989–) is an Austrian identitarian alt-right figure who makes it very hard not to violate Godwin's law. Although one might think this Austrian is behind Gates of Vienna, that's not his.

Sellner, leader of the Austrian branch of Generation Identity (German: Identitäre Bewegung Österreich, IBÖ), is married to American professional racist writer Brittany Sellner (neé Pettibone).[1]

Sellner has been blocked from entry into the USA and United Kingdom.[1] He and fellow Austrian identitarians such as Martin LichtmeszWikipedia (article in German) nevertheless continue to travel to alt-right rallies elsewhere, sometimes with Jared Taylor, Kevin MacDonald, Greg Johnson, Fróði Midjord, and other such milk people.

In the past, he used to be a neo-Nazi and a Holocaust denier until 2011, when he decided to advertise far-right ideas in a more "hip" and palatable way.[2]

Connection to the Christchurch Terrorist[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Christchurch terrorist attacks

In 2019, Austrian police conducted raids on Sellner's residence in Vienna after it came to their knowledge that Sellner had been in contact with the perpetrator of the Christchurch terrorist attacks.[3] He received from the terrorist a donation in the sum of 1500 Euros.[4] He furthermore denounced the act of terrorism and declared that the perpetrator was an "enemy of peaceful patriots".

However, independent journalist Michael Bonvalot uncovered a tweet by Sellner in January of 2016 that says (translated from German):

Thank god I already bought a weapon before the asylmania [sic] had started.
Must be hard to get some good stuff now.

Screenshot of the tweet. German-to-English translation above.
