Germany's new breed of neo-Nazis pose a threat

Regardless of the nation, the Nazi attitude and approach to politics and life is not dead. And that includes modern Germany.

BBC News - Germany's new breed of neo-Nazis pose a threat:
There is a growing collection of secretive far-right groups in Germany which call themselves the "Free Forces".Intelligence services say this is the fastest-spreading section of Germany's far-right movement.They say the cliche of the neo-Nazi being a boot-wearing, young, unemployed male skinhead is out of date. Nowadays you cannot always tell who is a neo-Nazi and who is not. 
The Free Forces are attracting a new crowd, including students and middle-class professionals. Germans speak of a new generation of Kravattennazis, literally "Tie Nazis", as opposed to the traditional Stiefelnazis, or "Boot Nazis".
