Squadron 88

Screen Shot 2015-08-19 at 1.30.51 am

S88 are a tiny neo Nazi bonehead group based in NSW. It emerged in 2014 from the younger and more overtly fascist supporters of the Australia First Party. They don’t number over five and regularly attend AFP rallies and events. The group is based around the elderly neo Nazi identity Ross “the Skull’ May, an AFP member and long-time associate of Jim Saleam.

S88 first appeared on the radar after doing an anti Semitic letterbox drop in Bondi, also targeting the inner west suburbs of Marrickville and Enmore. They later produced a funny series of videos called the Skull Show, which features the old man ranting in front of swastikas and talking about how him and his four disciples are going to take back Australia from all the “Jews, Communists and gooks”.

What they are mainly known for is scribbling swastika’s with biros on anarchist posters in the middle of the night and early hours in the morning so as to not be caught by anti fascists.

S88 had a bad few days at the races over the Reclaim Australia weekend. After their two sturmfuhrers Ross May and Tyler Winchester boarded a UPF patriot bus in wilful glee, they were promptly ejected in what appears to be a staged video by Ralph Cerminara. Regardless of whether Ross agreed to be humiliated on video by Ralph or if the video is legitimate, the fact remains that the silly old bugger just looks stupid again. He was seen clambering around on the night train to the Sydney rally after a romantic night away with Tyler. Meanwhile, as seen in the video below the rest of their mates were chased away from the Sydney anti Reclaim rally after trying to act tough behind a line of cops again.

After being absent from the political space for two years, the boys are finally back with a new album. This one is called “infiltrating Party for Freedom”. In Mid 2017 McDonald and his band of twats have resurfaced to front the national socialist vanguard in Sydney. The same old faces were spotted in Penrith and again in Lithgow when they turned out full force to do….. nothing.

Since day one, S88 have been about nothing but posturing, wearing Nazi clothing and putting on a front at rallies behind police lines, confirmed by their former colleagues at UNA Media. At every rally they have attended since 2014, McDonald and co are known for their theatrical streak, making what they perceive as dramatic entrances at far right rallies, marching in a small possy dressed in bomber jackets. The problem is they never DO anything. In Lithgow on the 30th of July, like clockwork, the S88 boys plan to arrive fashionably late and pussy foot around the outskirts of the anti fascist gathering, one of their comrades shoulder charging a teenage woman in the back whilst doing so.
