RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Troy Southgate is a figure who has associated himself with an array of organisations on the British far-right.

Southgate was born in Crystal Palace, South London in 1965. In 1987 he joined the Society of St. Pius X, a traditionalist Catholic organisation; afterwards he got involved in a street fight and was sentenced to eighteen months' imprisonment. He joined the National Front in 1989, later migrating to the International Third Position,[1] one of the Front's many break-off groups.

In 1992 he was amongst the ITP members who left to form the English Nationalist Movement, renamed the National Revolutionary Faction in 1998; this militant organisation called for an armed insurrection against the government. In 2003 it was renamed National Anarchy, basing itself on a blend of nationalism and anarchism which held that society is facing an imminent collapse but - unlike many other far-right groups which promote this view - hailing this disaster as something positive.[2]

Southgate, who abandoned Catholicism in 1997[1] and has since derided Christians as "weak",[3] has also been involved with neopagan organisations such as Wulf Ingessunu's bizarre Woden's Folk.

In 2005 he launched New Right with Jonothon Boulter.[4]
