Anna-Marie Crampton, Ukip Candidate, In Storm Over ‘Anti-Semitic Comments’ Posted Online

Ukip is facing calls to sack one of its candidates who apparently denied the Holocaust and promoted wild conspiracy theories online.

A Facebook profile in the name of Anna-Marie Crampton, who is standing for the Eurosceptic party in the local elections in East Sussex next week, posted that the Second World War had been “engineered by the Zionist jews”, adding: “Only the Zionists could sacrifice their own in the gas chambers.”

On Twitter, there were references to the ‘false flag’ conspiracy theory about the Boston Marathon bombings and links to UFO sites.

The Jewish comments, revealed by Brighton’s Argus newspaper, were posted by Crampton’s Facebook account – which includes photos of her with Ukip leader Nigel Farage – on an online forum entitled ‘Was Pope Benedict fired by the Knights of Malta?’

The entry in Crampton’s name said: “Of coure [sic] he was” …

Ukip told The Argus it would not comment until it had contacted Crampton.

And Sam Westrop, director of interfaith organisation Stand For Peace, told the paper: “UKIP, to its credit, has expelled extremist and bigoted members in the past.

“They must also expel Anna-Marie Crampton. Such hatred must be fought at all times.”

Ukip has again been asked to comment but has yet to respond.

Meanwhile, it seems that they have suspended candidate Crampton.

Some Ukip candidates could be BNP members, says leader Nigel Farage: here.

    • What the Nethanyanu government in Israel does (basically calling every critic of their policies an anti-Semite) is one thing.

      What anti-Semites in Europe, like Anna-Marie Crampton, do: using “Zionist” as a code word for “Jew” which they really mean, is another thing.


  1. Holocaust survivor dies aged 107

    AUSTRIA: One of the oldest known nazi concentration camp survivors has died aged 107.

    The Mauthausen Committee – which tracks holocaust survivors – said Leopold Engleitner died on April 21.

    He refused to give up his faith as a Jehova’s Witness and was sent to three concentration camps, where he was forced to work as a slave labourer during the second world war.



  2. Ukip suspends activist for Facebook racism

    Thursday 02 May 2013

    Ukip suspended member Tony Nixon today for allegedly posting anti-Muslim “jokes” on Facebook.

    North Yorkshire Police are investigating whether the pensioner committed any offence on the social network.

    Mr Nixon had been canvassing for the rightwingers in Stokesley before today’s local elections.

    Hope Not Hate researcher Simon Cressy said Mr Nixon’s Facebook page included images of US President Barack Obama and his wife mocked up to look like chimpanzees.

    There were also racist jokes about destroying mosques, burning Muslims and knocking over a Pakistani with a bus.

    A Ukip spokesman said the party was “shocked” and that it was investigating Mr Nixon.

    “We do not tolerate members with any links to the BNP, EDL or other extremist parties.”
