A neo-Nazi terror suspect who entered a “Miss Hitler” beauty contest was obsessed with “ethnic cleansing”, a court has heard.
Alice Cutter, 22, denies being a member of National Action after it was outlawed as a terrorist organisation by the government in December 2016.
Her partner, Mark Jones, 24, is accused of being a “leader and strategist” for the banned group – an allegation he denies.
The pair, from Sowerby Bridge near Halifax, West Yorkshire, deny being members of National Action between December 2016 and September 2017.
On the second day of the trial, prosecutor Barnaby Jameson QC told the jury that Cutter did not win the Miss Hitler competition in 2016.
Mr Jameson claimed she had been “a central spoke in the National Action wheel” and alleged that she was photographed giving the Nazi salute on the steps of Leeds Town Hall in May 2016.
He continued: “Alice Cutter shared Jones’ obsession with knives, guns and the ideology of violent ethnic cleansing.
“Cutter’s violent racist mindset leeches right through the National Action chat groups.
“This was not simply Alice Cutter playing to the gallery.”
In one online conversation, Cutter allegedly made comments about violence against Jewish people.
Prosecutors also alleged that Garry Jack, a 23-year-old from Birmingham, and Connor Scothern, an 18-year-old from Nottinghan, belonged to the banned organisation between the same dates.
The trial continues.
