German nazi army officer’s race war plot

24 July 2017

German Minister of Defence Ursula von der Leyen visited Hammelburg military barracks, Monday, where former Lieutenant Franco A, who was later charged with masterminding an assassination plot of senior German politicians, was stationed until his arrest.

Von der Leyen followed several training exercises at the camp before outlining her opinion that the military training ground should be expanded.

Ursula von der Leyen, German Minister of Defence (German): “The armed forces are involved in 16 different missions at the moment. That means the soldiers are prepared for missions in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, to name just a few of the 16 missions. Hammelburg will also play a huge role in the future, and the fact that the armed forces are growing again after 25 years is demonstrated [by] the fact that we hire more soldiers, 18,000 in the next 7 years, which means that we need more training. Hammelbach will get an investment of over 70 million euros in the next 5 years. That is urgent if you look at the infrastructure.”

Far-right soldier ‘planned attack to start race war

Thursday 14th November 2017

A GERMAN soldier has been charged with planning “false flag attacks” to inflame a race war after an earlier case against him was dropped.

The man, an army lieutenant known as Franco Hans A, was arrested in April along with two suspected accomplices and has been charged by federal prosecutors with planning an act of violence and violations of weapons and explosives laws.

More serious charges of plotting a terrorist attack were dismissed by the German criminal court last month after a lack of evidence.

He planned to attack those he accused of sympathising with refugees

The arrest of Mr Franco A has rocked Germany with a wide-ranging investigation into 275 far-right sympathisers in the country’s armed forces.

The German Defence Ministry probe earlier this year discovered nazi-era memorabilia, including posters and munitions, in army barracks.

It found soldiers performing nazi salutes and abusing servicemen from minority ethnic backgrounds.

In a statement, prosecutors said: “Motivated by a nationalist attitude, he planned to carry out an attack at an unknown time on high-ranking politicians and public figures who stood up for what the accused regarded as an especially refugee-friendly policy.

He wanted people to believe that his attacks were related to radical Islamist terrorism committed by somebody who had been granted asylum.”

Mr Franco A had stockpiled firearms, 1,000 rounds of ammunition and 50 explosive devices, some of which had been taken from military storage.

He planned to pose as an undocumented refugee and claim benefits while living in a hostel for several months.

The far-right has seen a resurgence in Germany with the Alternative for Germany winning seats in parliament for the first time in September’s election.

Britain First claims special relationship with Trump

3 December 2017

A leader of the far-Right British group ‘endorsed’ by Donald Trump gleefully boasted yesterday that she now has a ‘special relationship’ with the US President.

Jayda Fransen achieved international notoriety last week when Mr Trump shared her inflammatory anti-Muslim videos with his 44 million followers.

But it sparked a war of words between the President and Theresa May and led to plans for a ‘working visit’ to the UK next month to be ‘kicked into the long grass’.

Fransen, 31, deputy leader of Britain First, said: ‘I think the special relationship may have broken down between May and Trump’.

Violent Britain First supporter in court

Tuesday 5th December 2017

A BRITAIN FIRST supporter gave a nazi salute and shouted: “White power” before driving at a curry house owner, a court heard yesterday.

Marek Zakrocki, 48, threatened to “kill a Muslim” before launching his attack outside Spicy Night in Harrow, north-west London.

The defendant, who was originally charged with attempted murder, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and battering his wife.

Prosecutor Denis Barry said: “It’s plain that his conduct is very likely to have been motivated by his views about our diverse society.”

During the rampage on June 23, Mr Zakrocki was also heard to say: “I’m going to kill a Muslim. I’m doing it for Britain.”

Following an altercation in the street, he drove his van at 5mph at restaurant owner Kamal Ahmed.

Police found a nazi coin in Mr Zakrocki’s pocket and a stash of Britain First flyers and newspapers at his home in Harrow. He admitted to donating to the fascist party in the past.

Judge Anthony Leonard QC remanded the defendant into custody to be sentenced on January 12.

Pressure grows to stop Trump’s state visit

Friday 1st December 2017

MPs across House show fury at US leader’s public support for the far right

THERESA MAY should be true to her word and cancel Donald Trump’s invitation for a state visit, having declared that peddlers of hate should be banned from Britain, MPs said yesterday.

Labour’s Paul Flynn was one of many who suggested that the US president be charged with inciting racial hatred on arrival to Britain after he retweeted a series of posts by far-right activist Jayda Fransen.

Widespread condemnation both in and out of Parliament has followed Mr Trump’s sharing of anti-Muslim videos posted by Ms Fransen, deputy leader of Britain First.

Her group, best-known for social media bigotry and videoing its members harassing mosque-goers, was a major influence on Thomas Mair, who killed MP Jo Cox in June 2016.

Mr Flynn said of Mr Trump: “He has disgraced himself again and again and he worries us, because his impulsive finger is on the nuclear button.

“If he’s allowed to come to this country now, he should be treated as anyone else who breaks the law and charged with inciting racial hatred.

“The government should withdraw the invitation.”

Labour former minister Chris Bryant agreed that the US president was “a repeat offender”.

He added: “You cannot stand up to this kind of action, you cannot stand up to horrible racism, or pretend to do so, and invite the man in through the front door.

“The Prime Minister, when she was home secretary, said homophobes and racists who will stir up hatred in this country will not be allowed in and, if they come to this country, they’ll be arrested.

“That’s what should happen in this case and the Home Secretary [Amber Rudd] knows it.”

Tory MP Peter Bone asked Ms Rudd if the PM could make “the world be a better place” by persuading Mr Trump to shut down his Twitter account, which has 44 million followers.

Ms Rudd appeared to back the suggestion by replying: “It’s interesting to note [Mr Bone’s] advice regarding Twitter accounts — I’m sure many of us might share his view.”

Labour MP Naz Shah said Ms May, when she was home secretary, had banned people from Britain for having “promoted organisations peddling the hate-filled ideology of fascism.”

She added: “Not only has the commander in tweet done this, he has defended it, publicly chastising the British Prime Minister for her comments.”

Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said that Mr Trump’s online activities were “offensive to all decent British people.”

London Mayor Sadiq Khan also said Ms May should withdraw the invitation and demand an apology on behalf of the British people.

An invitation for Mr Trump’s state visit had been extended and accepted but the dates are yet to be agreed, Ms Rudd said.

Ms May stated that the president was “wrong” to retweet the videos — purportedly showing violent acts by Muslims.

At a press conference during a visit to Jordan, Ms May said: “Britain First is a hateful organisation. It seeks to spread division and mistrust among our communities.

“It stands in fundamental opposition to the values we share as a nation — values of respect, tolerance and common British decency.”

Mr Trump responded by berating the Prime Minister about British domestic policy, again via Tweet, saying: “Don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!”

The US leader has also received criticism from the Lords with Labour former cabinet minister Lord Hain saying there could be no question of a state visit until Mr Trump at least expressed some remorse.

He described Britain First as a “nazi group with a vicious record of attacks, racism, Islamophobia and anti-semitism.”

House of Commons discuss Donald Trump’s tweets

UK Parliament discusses Donald J. Trump’s re-tweeting of inflammatory videos from British far-right account rife with anti-Muslim content.

Conservative MPs call on Donald Trump to delete his Twitter account.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Islamophobia didn’t emerge from nowhere

Friday 1st December 2017

THERESA MAY appears to imagine that, while she’s on her Middle East trip, she can afford to ignore online abuse thrown at her by her ex-bestie Donald Trump.

Her strongest remark is that the US president was “wrong” to share three videos designed to foster hatred against Muslims.

“The fact that we work together does not mean that we are afraid to say when we think that the United States have got it wrong and to be very clear with them,” she asserted.

The problem is that May regards telling Trump he’s wrong as the end of the matter, even when the US president responds that she should “focus on the destructive radical Islamic terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom” rather than on his championing of the ravings of the Britain First fascist group.

The Tory leader is transfixed by Trump’s status as US president and the convention of British prime ministers playing second fiddle to White House residents.

Labour shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry demands that Britain should “stand up to Trump”, which would be a novel development, although British subservience to Washington goes far beyond one single president.

Islamophobia has not emerged from a vacuum. This virulent phenomenon was spawned by a philosophy developed in tandem with wars of conquest waged by successive US presidents and backed by British prime ministers.

Nor is it specific to far-right groups such as Britain First, upon which May concentrated her fire.

Clipping Britain First round the ear may be gratifying, but the impact of this tiny group’s hate-spewing efforts are minuscule compared with those of one of the most powerful and unpredictable elected politicians in the world, who has forwarded their videos to his 43.7 million Twitter followers.

After Trump provided the oxygen of publicity to Britain First, why did BBC and Channel 4 TV programmes feel the need also to offer its deputy leader broadcast time to state her case?

Trump has previous form in his Islamophobic immigration policy, his slanderous comments directed against London Mayor Sadiq Khan and a stream of crass observations that confuse jihadist death cults with Muslims in general.

May has previously threatened to ban from Britain or prosecute anyone guilty of hate crimes. Trump cannot be exempt from that.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd’s attempt to avoid the logic of the Prime Minister’s words by drawing attention to joint US-British intelligence work to monitor and disrupt terrorist plots misses the point entirely.

Such co-operation would continue regardless. It need not be accompanied by a grovelling welcome to Britain whenever this Islamophobic oaf chooses to visit.

The Tory government too has to clean up its own act in light of the refusal of both May, when she was home secretary, and her predecessor as prime minister, David Cameron, to condemn the vile attempt by Tory London mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith to ape Trump’s smearing of Khan.

The House of Commons debate was necessary to highlight widespread public revulsion, but it leaves a nagging fear that an atmosphere of moral superiority for Britain’s political class might prevail.

Much remains to be done in Britain too when, for instance, the Ofsted school inspectorate still includes guidance that Muslim schoolgirls of four or five should be questioned over wearing the hijab as this “could be interpreted as sexualisation” of children.

Now is not the time for mutual back-slapping but for serious organisation to confront the scourge of Islamophobia.

Theresa May is appeasing an apologist for fascism in the White House

Thursday 30th November 2017

THERESA MAY’S acknowledgement that it was “wrong” of US President Donald Trump to share online Islamophobic videos posted by the Britain First fascist group marks a step forward — but only a baby step.

It provides some clarification after Brexit Minister Lord Callanan danced on eggshells, trying to distinguish between Trump and the office he holds.

Callanan’s response boiled down to condemnation of Britain First while drawing a veil over presidential responsibility for spreading its hatred to his 43.6 million Twitter followers.

Even his cack-handed attempt to square the circle of government desire to woo the Trump administration despite awareness of the president’s support for white supremacy and Islamophobia was too much for Home Secretary Amber Rudd.

She simply had nothing to say in the absence of guidance from the Prime Minister.

Callanan suggested that Trump might not have heard of Britain First as though his ignorance justified his action, but this doesn’t diminish his culpability for watching the provocative — and probably falsified — videos and choosing to disseminate them.

Doing so is fully in line with his consistent record of spreading hatred against minorities in US society — Muslims and Mexicans — and defending white supremacists as good people.

Britain First leaders are largely irrelevant in this saga. Trump’s virulent national, racial and religious prejudices and our government’s willingness to treat them as trivial to avoid unpleasantness with the White House are what count.

Brendan Cox, whose MP wife Jo Cox was murdered by Britain First advocate Thomas Mair, is spot on to denounce Trump for having “legitimised the far right in his own country, now he’s trying to do it in ours.”

May insists that Trump’s planned visit to Britain next year will proceed as normal.

Proceed it might but not as normal, since all anti-racists must mobilise to tell this bigoted clown that he is not welcome here.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (Republican-S.C.) seemed to struggle with his memory Thursday as he defended President Donald Trump.

“What concerns me about the American press is this endless, endless attempt to label the guy as some kind of kook not fit to be president,” Graham told CNN this week.

Just one problem: The “kook” and “unfit” label didn’t necessarily come from the American press.

It came from Sen. Graham.

The tweets have caused a backlash on both sides of the Atlantic

Chris Stevenson, Mythili Sampathkumar

Dutch officials have issued a statement correcting one of the anti-Muslim tweets from Britain First deputy leader Jayda Fransen which US President Donald Trump shared with his 44 million followers on Twitter.

The first video retweeted by Mr Trump shows two young men fighting near a river bank, above which Ms Fransen wrote, “VIDEO: Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!”.

“The public prosecution service Noord-Holland has studied the file submitted by the police”, a spokesman for the Dutch public prosecution service said.

The [non-Muslim white] suspect, who was born and raised in the Netherlands, received a HALT settlement. This has been successfully completed.” …

Not one of the three videos depict what Britain First nazis/Trump lyingly claim what they represent.

I know the sad truth about the video Trump shared from Britain First. This is what really happened: here.

The widower of UK MP Jo Cox, who was murdered by right-wing extremist Thomas Mair, is also among those who have condemned the posts.

Brendan Cox tweeted: “Trump has legitimised the far right in his own country, now he’s trying to do it in ours. Spreading hatred has consequences & the President should be ashamed of himself.”

See also here. And here.

The urgent question triggered vitriolic criticism of a US President never before heard in the House of Commons. Mr Trump was branded “fascist” and “stupid”, accused of spreading “evil” and of being “racist or incompetent or ignorant or all three” – some of the strongest attacks coming from Conservatives: here.

Tommy Robinson Hiding Nazis In The EDL

4 February 2012

The EDL regularly claim to kick nazis out at demos.

Here we see Tommy Robinson, “leader” of the EDL, telling a guy at the demo in Leicester to stop doing nazi salutes.

He obviously doesn’t mind nazis being there. He just doesn’t want them to be spotted.

‘Tommy Robinson‘ is NOT the real name of that racist. This former member of the neonazi BNP, sentenced for violent crime and later for fraud, is called Stephen Yaxley-Lennon … err … that sounds too Irish, as neonazis hate not only Muslims, Jews, Africans, etc. etc. but Irish people as well. So, he prefers calling himself the more Germanic “Tommy Robinson“.

Campaigners unite around Britain to stand up to fascists’ hatred

ANTI-RACISTS will mobilise across Britain today as they face off against far-right protests in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Milton Keynes.

Controversial former Ukip leadership candidate Anne-Marie Waters will be faced with a demonstration as she hosts a lavish £54-a-head dinner at an unnamed venue in Milton Keynes.

She quit the party after finishing runner-up to Henry Bolton. Far-right party For Britain, which is organising today’s event, described her defeat as “the victory of jihad over truth.”

Ms Waters is the director of Sharia Watch and is associated with far-right politicians. She has praised Dutch Party for Freedom leader Geert Wilders and France’s Marine Le Pen.

She previously attempted to found a British wing of the anti-Islam Pegida movement with former EDL leader Tommy Robinson.

An ITV documentary exposed alleged far-right infiltration in support of Ms Waters’s bid for the Ukip leadership.

Milton Keynes’s Stand Up to Racism has organised a protest to show that “we are the majority and oppose racism and Islamophobia.”

However organisers of the right-wing dinner have refused to give details of the venue amid fears of an anti-racist backlash.

In Edinburgh there will be a protest against a provocative demonstration being staged in the city by racist groups the Football Lads Alliance (FLA) and Veterans Against Terrorism.

The Scottish Trade Union Congress (STUC) has called for a maximum mobilisation against the racists in Edinburgh today.
More than 30 Scottish trade unions and branches, campaign groups, community organisations and others have backed the call.

Stand Up to Racism has revealed that veterans’ leader Richard Inman has stated that “the whole Muslim religion is anti-Christ”.

“It is also alarming news that his group is working with fascist Tommy Robinson in Inman’s ‘struggle against Islamisation’. This does not sit well with the group’s claim that it is ‘non-racist’.

“Robinson is an Islamophobe. The former leader of the deeply racist English Defence League was recently in Poland to join a fascist-led march in Warsaw on Polish Independence Day.”

SNP for Edinburgh Eastern [Member of the Scottish Parliament] Ash Denham said: “We need to stand up for equality in Scotland and put a stop to the FLA’s division and extremism. Racism and Islamophobia are not welcome in Scotland, and that includes our football clubs, which have made clear that anyone who wants to play football is welcome regardless of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.”

Educational Institute of Scotland’s John Kelly said: “This insidious organisation is a dangerous operation. Under the guise of a football alliance of sorts it seems to me to be more of a front for attitudes and bigotries which have no place in a civilised society. We need to shine a light on the resurgence of the right across the world today at every level.”
