Sounds like a natural progression to me

“Mongolian neo-Nazis rebrand themselves as environmentalists”.

By the way: shades of P.G. Wodehouse! Remember the Oswald Mosely-like Roderick Spode? His Black Shorts organization and his secret ownership of a lingerie store (“Eulalie Soeurs”)? Observe:
Based in an office behind a lingerie store in the Mongolian capital, the shaven-headed, jackbooted Tsagaan Khass stormtroopers launch raids on mining projects, demanding paperwork or soil samples to be studied for contaminants.
Perhaps the response to these fellows should be the same that Bertie Wooster gave to Spode in The Code of the Woosters:
The trouble with you, Spode, is that just because you have succeeded in inducing a handful of half-wits to disfigure the London scene by going about in black shorts, you think you're someone. You hear them shouting "Heil, Spode!" and you imagine it is the Voice of the People. That is where you make your bloomer. What the Voice of the People is saying is: "Look at that frightful ass Spode swanking about in footer bags! Did you ever in your puff see such a perfect perisher?"
How interesting that I should have occasion to cite that hilarious passage again.

"A Mongolian neo-Nazi group has rebranded itself as an environmentalist organisation …"
I don't think any 're-branding' actually occurred.

Mongolians as environmentalists? Genghis Khan must be rolling in his grave.

Rebecca: Genghis Khan would be proud.

"And, although his methods may be difficult for environmentalists to accept, ecologists believe it may be the first ever case of successful manmade global cooling. "

I expect that many environmentalists would fully embrace such measures. Although modern technology replaces the sword, axe, arrow, and spear with firearms, conventional munitions, biological weapons, and, no doubt, nuclear weapons in some cases.

It would be for the children, you see.

Deborah .... These guys must not have gotten the last chapter. This is like a episode of the original Star Trek.

"Cosmopolitan" , "Mongolian", and "Nazi" in the same article ... something is wrong.

Picture these guys riding up on those little horses.

Why is it always Nazis? Woudn't American gangsters from the '20s/'30s/'40s have worked?
d. They dressed really swell. Or how about our wild west? They've already got horses. Thankfully they didn't go Viking.

Mongolians are the ass end of world opinion.
