Neil "Nool"[1] Erikson aka "the brain of a 12 year old idiot trapped in the body of a fully grown moron" and "Idiot Boy" is an Australian far-right activist, convicted felon and self proclaimed neo-Nazi. He was the leader of the now-defunct Nationalist Alternative and Nationalist Republican Guard (what republic were they guarding in Australia?), the second of which he claimed Adolf Hitler would have supported, if he were still above ground. [2]. He was also a member of the United Patriots Front, along with his friends Sherman "The Great Aussie Patriot" Burgess and fellow neo-Nazi Blair Cottrell.

Viewpoints and activity[edit]

Erikson regularly produces videos which consist of him ranting that the left and radical Islam are working together to destroy Australian society and must be overcome. He has accused the left of being "a bunch of pussies" and for being too cowardly to verbally engage with right- wing patriots[3]. Erikson has also hilariously accused the Australian media owned by Rupert Murdoch of being leftist because they are insufficiently critical of radical Islam.

Erikson also regularly attends UPF protests, where he will often be seen with a video camera filming the occurrence and screaming at people of different political persuasions.

Before joining the UPF, Erikson was convicted for verbally abusing and threatening a rabbi over his "race"[4], and expressed regret over the fact that Hitler did not fully "deal with the Jewish problem"[5].

Since joining the UPF, Erikson has dialled back the Nazi rhetoric, though he did interview Australian Neo-Nazi Jim Saleam on how to overcome the left[6]

In July 2015, Erikson offered any leftist who would punch him in the face a $100 gift voucher to purchase deodorant. Because all lefties are unwashed dirty scum, you know[7].

In November 2017, a video surfaced of Erikson calling Iranian born, Australian senator Sam Dastyari a "terrorist" and "little monkey" in a Melbourne pub. He was among a group of "concerned patriots" who harassed and racially abused the senator[8]

In January 2018, during a court appearance over breaching court orders by failing to return a uniform to former employer Toll and publishing online footage and photographs of high-profile confrontations in which his associates are wearing the logistics company's uniforms. During the proceedings, Erikson mistakenly picked up the Koran as he prepared to give sworn evidence in the witness stand in the Federal Circuit Court. After he was corrected by an associate, Neil excused his mistake by saying that he was 'just a simple forklift driver' in a 'David versus Goliath' legal stoush against Toll.[9]
