Man jailed for antisemitic tweet to Labour MP

An internet troll accused of sending an antisemitic message to Labour MP Luciana Berger has been sentenced to four weeks in prison at Merseyside magistrates court.

Garron Helm, 21, from Litherland, north of Liverpool, tweeted a picture of the MP with a Holocaust yellow star superimposed on her forehead, with the hashtag “Hitler was right”. The tweet, which referred to Berger as a ‘‘communist jewess”, read: “You can always trust a Jew to show their true colours eventually.”

Helm send the tweet in the early hours of the morning on 7 August and claimed to have sent it in a state of anger and frustration. He pleaded guilty to sending an offensive, indecent or obscene message.

Berger, the MP for Liverpool Wavertree, said she hoped the jail term would deter would-be trolls. “This sentence sends a clear message that hate crime is not tolerated in our country,” she said. “I hope this case serves as an encouragement to others to report hate crime whenever it rears its ugly head.”

When police searched Helm’s home they found Nazi memorabilia including an SS flag and flags from the British neo-Nazi group National Action. Helm’s twitter account, called “Æthelwulf” – Old English for Noble Wolf – links to the National Action website, which promotes a “free, white Britain”.

The account includes a tweet that refers to David Cameron and Ed Miliband as “Jews masquerading as Englishmen” and many references to far-right politics.

Recent high-profile victims of trolling have included campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez, politician Stella Creasy and Chloe Madeley, daughter of TV presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan.

British ex-National Front nazi now in UKIP


This video from England says about itself:

UKIP AND THE EX-NF CANDIDATE

17 April 2013

A THANET WATCH REPORT. Campaigning for UKIP in Ramsgate for the Kent County council elections, Trevor Shonk answers questions about the ex-chair of Thanet UKIP party, Martyn Heale, who was in the past an organiser for the National Front. UKIP has a rule not to allow membership to people who have been members of far right parties such as the National Front and the British National Party.

Apparently, having such a rule is one thing. Applying it is another thing.

UKIP OFFICIAL DEFENDS RACIST NATIONAL FRONT

Wednesday 8th october 2014

Heale accused of rewriting history over NF claims

SENIOR Ukip official Martyn Heale was accused yesterday of “rewriting history” after claiming that the National Front (NF) was not a far-right organisation.

Mr Heale, party leader Nigel Farage’s campaign manager in the Kent constituency of South Thanet, had previously said that his membership of the NF in the late 1970s was “a bad decision” that he “sincerely” regretted.

But in an about-turn, Mr Heale has now leapt to the defence of the organisation.

In today’s issue of the London Review of Books, Mr Heale is quoted as saying: “There’s been an attempt by many people to associate the National Front with the far right. But that’s not fair, that’s not true.

“It was a bit of a social club,” he told the journal. “Initially the National Front was just a group of retired people and soldiers.”

Mr Heale was a branch organiser for the National Front in Hammersmith, west London.

He held his position at a time when the racist NF was blamed for encouraging a huge escalation in far-right violence in the city.

His neonazi links were first exposed last year when he ran successfully for a seat on Kent County Council.

Hope Not Hate organiser Simon Creasy told the Morning Star: “Maybe he’s trying to rewrite history and whitewash over his far-right past.

“Anyone with a modicum of intelligence knows that the National Front was a far-right organisation and still is.

“For him to try to deflect from questions about his history in this way is just laughable. It was always a far-right party.”

Mr Heale’s claims were published as the anti-immigrant party launched a shocking defence of one of its MEPs after she tweeted a link to an anti-semitic website.

Last week Jane Collins tweeted a link to an article drawing links between Labour leader Harriet Harman and the Paedophile Information Exchange, which incorrectly referred to Ms Harman as a “Jewess.”

But a Ukip spokesman told Jewish News yesterday that the term was “(no) more insulting than saying that Ms Collins is a Yorkshirewoman, it is merely descriptive not pejorative.”

Last year Mr Farage said he would not join an alliance with the French far-right Front National, led by Marine Le Pen, because of the “prejudice and anti-semitism” in the party.

Mr Heale’s comments are quoted in a 8,000-word polemic in the London Review of Books by author and journalist James Meek.

“In view of Ukip’s insistence that it isn’t a racist party, I thought Heale might be defensive, or embarrassed, about being a member of the NF in 1978,” Mr Meek writes. “To my surprise, he came to its defence.”

A Ukip spokesman said the party disputed the quote and claimed that when Mr Heale joined the NF he felt it was a left-of-centre community-oriented organisation with a national focus.

Party leader Mr Farage was adopted as Ukip candidate in South Thanet this summer.

When Heale joined the National Front, its founder and party leader was John Tyndall, ex-deputy leader of the National Socialist Movement and a lifelong nazi.

Talking about the British National Front; about their French sister party:

France’s far-right National Front (FN) party has boycotted a vote to dedicate a square in the southern city of Toulon to Nelson Mandela, saying the anti-apartheid icon was a “terrorist” in the past.

ONE of Ukip’s rising stars has been left red-faced after social media messages emerged showing he criticised Nigel Farage’s party at the last election. Blair Smillie had hurriedly deleted posts and made his social media profiles private yesterday, after Labour revealed the embarrassing posts: here.

Ukip leader says he is ‘not going to pretend to reach out to female voters or voters of all different denominations’: here.

Belfast Islamophobe is not welcome in Wales


This video is called Islamophobia and Antisemitism: Same message, different minority.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Preacher of hate flees Welsh tour

Tuesday 7th October 2014

A notorious hate preacher who has labelled Islam “satanic” was run out of Wales at the weekend by anti-racist activists.

Belfast-based Pastor James McConnell had been due to address supporters at a leisure centre in Pontypridd on Sunday as part of a speaking tour.

But he called off the Welsh leg of his hate tour after Unite Against Fascism (UAF) discovered the event was taking place and called a protest outside.

It took just half a dozen committed anti-racist campaigners to make him think twice.

UAF Wales spokesman Jeffrey Hurford said: “We wanted to show that his racism and Islamophobia is not welcome in Wales.

Especially at this time, importing religious hatred is an irresponsible crime.”

Nazi Sobibor gas chambers rediscovered

Escape from Sobibor: 1987

22 August 2013

During WWII, the death camp at Treblinka had an escape, causing the Commandant at a similar camp in Sobibor to vow that his camp would never experience the same thing. But those who were its captives, the Jewish laborers that had been spared from the ovens, knew that they were on borrowed time and that their only hope was to escape… the only question was how to do it. However, because the Germans would kill an equal number of others whenever a group attempted to escape, the captives knew that if ever an escape was tried, all 600 prisoners in the camp would have to be included… logistically precluding any ideas about tunnels or sneak breakouts. Indeed, to have such a mass escape could only mean that the Ukrainian guards and Germain officers would have to be killed, which many of the Jews felt simply reduced themselves to no better than their captors… thus making it a struggle of conscience. And therein lies the story, with the film being based on a factual account of what then happened at that Sobibor prison.

The above film is public domain. I have posted this in good faith with the information and records available to me online.

Sobibor gas chambers found again

Update: Wednesday Sep 17 2014, 21:03

Researchers have found the exact location of the gas chambers of Sobibor, one of the nazi death camps in Poland. The study lasted eight years. The researchers, including a Dutch archaeologist, called the find important for the study of the Holocaust.

After an uprising in October 1943 the Germans closed the camp and they demolished the buildings to delete the traces of their crimes. Then a woodland grew over it.

The gas chambers were in use from April 1942 to October 1943. The nazis have killed at least 170,000 Jews there.
