Compound Media Hosts Promote Racist ‘Great Replacement’ Conspiracy With Simon Roche

Last month Simon Roche, the spokesman for the South African survivalist group Suidlanders, made a guest appearance on the TBD program hosted on the Compound Media network. Compound Media was founded in 2014 by racist shock jock Anthony Cumia who was fired that year by SiriusXM.

Roche, a white nationalist known for spreading the myth that a “white genocide” is taking place or on the verge of taking place in South Africa, claimed that “we in the West can reasonably safely say that there is a trend towards some kind of a New World Order or global governance or global acceptance of a universal set of norms and values.”

He claimed that these “norms and values” are “antithetical to Western values” and are “being injected into Western societies from outside.”

The “New World Order” conspiracy has deep roots in various far-right extremist movements in the U.S., including Neo-Nazi and militia groups. Adherents of this conspiracy typically believe globalist politicians are working with the U.N. to disarm Americans and usher in a totalitarian world government.

Roche played to these exact fears by going on to say that “the United Nations knows very well what is happening in South Africa” but is covering it up. In other words, Roche is claiming the U.N. knows a genocide of white farmers is taking place and is abetting it.

TBD co-host Pat Dixon chimed in to say he understood what Roche was saying. “There’s a lot coming from Africa too into other Western countries,” Dixon said, “and I guess, maybe it’s a replacement thing or something like that. I’ve heard it called the great replacement or something. I’m not really sure.”

The “great replacement” is a white supremacist conspiracy alleging that a cabal of people, typically Jews, are working to replace white people with nonwhites through mass immigration. This conspiracy has fueled numerous acts of violence in 2019 alone, including the murder of 51 Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand by a white supremacist. 

Simon Roche is no stranger to this type of rhetoric. In the past he has solicited donations from American white supremacists and Holocaust deniers, spoken at white nationalist conferences, and attended the 2017 white power “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville.

In a June 2019 speech at the Nationalist Solutions Conference, Roche boasted of his ties to far-right extremists in the U.S., and peddled the lie that their tax dollars were funding maternity clinics in African and South American countries in order to replace white people.

And in September he told white nationalist commentator Katie Hopkins that nonwhites and Muslims will “outbreed” white people.
