A neo-Nazi who scratched a swastika on his girlfriend’s behind has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

Andrew Dymock, 24, had played a leading role in a far-right group that aimed to “foment a race war.”

The politics student had already been convicted of 15 cases, including 12 terrorist offenses, in June before telling the jury: “Thank you for killing me.”

Judge Mark Dennis QC on Wednesday highlighted Dymock’s continued “state of denial” and sentenced him to seven years in prison with an additional three years of extended vacation.

The judge told the Old Bailey that Andrew Dymock was an “active and committed defender of right-wing neo-Nazi extremism.”

The court heard that Andrew Dymock had promoted the now-banned System Resistance Network (SRN), which described homosexuality as a “disease,” through a Twitter account and website.

The organization also preached “zero tolerance” to non-white, Jewish and Muslim communities, while Dymock used online platforms to raise funds.

He denied being behind the account: the Aberystwyth University student claimed that he was cheated on by an ex-girlfriend who had not recruited him to join the banned terrorist group National Action (NA).

Police found a photo on one of Dymock’s devices that showed a swastika carved into the same woman’s buttocks.

Dymock, of Bath, Somerset, told detectives in a January 2019 interview that he scratched the symbol with his fingernail.

His computer had displayed long-standing extremist views since the age of 17, including a Google translation of the words “kill all Jews.”

The son of middle-class academics wrote on a right-wing website about the founding of the SRN on October 8, 2017, saying the group was “focused on building a group of loyal men loyal to the Nazi cause.” . “. and the establishment of the fascist state by the revolution.”

The court was told that the SRN was one of the few far-right groups that removed the “empty doubt” under NA and was banned in 2020.

Andrew Dymock was expelled from the SRN in late February 2018, four months before he was arrested at Gatwick Airport as he was on his way to the United States.

Police found far-right literature in his luggage, including Siege, an anthology of pro-Nazi essays by James Mason and Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf, as well as clothing with neo-Nazi logos.

He also had books, flags, clothing, and insignia associated with the far right in his house and room at the university.

Dymock said the material linking him to SRN’s website and Twitter account had been “placed in his possession without his knowledge.”

He denied being a Nazi and told police: “Actually, I am bisexual, but I tend to be gay, in direct conflict with Nazism.

The student further told the jury that he had Adolf Hitler’s autobiographical manifesto, as well as books on Satanism, to “research” right-wing populism.

However, the jury found Dymock in five cases of promoting terrorism, two cases of fundraising for terrorism, four cases of disseminating terrorist publications, possession of a terrorist document, incitement to racial hatred and hatred based on orientation. sexual, and guilty of possession of racist material.

Judge Dennis said Dymock was “driven by an extremist mindset that had taken root at the time of his arrest” and called his actions “calculated and subtle” and intended to encourage others to “commit violence. Unprovoked against people. because of their race. ” . his beliefs or “committing to sexuality.”

In conclusion, the judge said that Dymock was intelligent and cultured, but that he supported a “twisted and evil cause.”

Dymock met his parents, Stella, and Dr. David Dymock, a professor of dentistry at the University of Bristol with whom he lived in Bath.

In an email exchange, Dr. Dymock tries to distance himself from his son’s views by telling him not to “send your political affairs to my professional email account, as I work at a multicultural institution that I am proud of and believe in. the values”. From this institution.

“I would hate for anyone who has seen my emails to think that I sympathize with fascist views.”
