The defendant, from south-east Cornwall, was aged just 13 when he got his hands on instructions for explosives and went on to lead a neo-Nazi cell from his grandmother’s house.
The defendant, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was handed a 24-month youth rehabilitation order by Judge Mark Dennis, QC, at the Old Bailey on Monday (February 8).
Cornwall Live reported last week how the court heard that between October 2018 and July 2019 the youth collected a significant amount of far-right material and manuals and was active on online platforms, expressing racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic views.
He talked about "gassing" Jewish people, hanging gay people and wanting to "shoot up their parades", the court heard.
In the summer of 2019 he became the British cell leader of the FKD - Feuerkrieg Division - a neo-Nazi group that idolises the likes of Anders Breivik, the Norwegian who murdered 77 young people in a shooting spree, the court heard.
One of his five recruits was teenager Paul Dunleavy, who was convicted of terrorism offences relating to his activities as a member of FKD in 2019 and with whom he discussed the acquisition of firearms, the court was told.
The defendant also allegedly commissioned a "Nuke London" poster which bore an image of an atom bomb cloud explosion over the Houses of Parliament with the slogan "Sterilise the cesspit that you call London".
In a police interview, the defendant, now aged 16, denied having had any racist, homophobic or anti-Semitic views, and said his comments and posts were just "to look cool".
He claimed that he had been considering leaving FKD for about a month.
