German patriots campaign: “Free political dissidents”

On a cold, wet and windy Saturday (16th March 2019) the spirits of German nationalists and campaigners for Truth in History were high as they held a successful public rally in the centre of the historic German city of Brandenburg. Richard Edmonds reports.

On a cold, wet and windy Saturday (16th. March 2019) the spirits of German nationalists and campaigners for Truth in History were high as they held a successful public rally in the centre of the historic German city of Brandenburg. Richard Edmonds reports. Standing in the public square amongst crowds of shoppers, with the trams rattling past and with a hundred Lefties positioned just across the street, some forty strong Nationalists campaigned for the release of German patriots jailed for questioning the so-called “Holocaust”. From the nationalist ranks, speaker after speaker denounced the injustice of jailing men and women for the “crime” of asking questions. The high point of our demonstration came when one of the young women supporters read out the message written by the brave Ursula Haverbeck. Frau Ursula Haverbeck recently “celebrated” her ninetieth birthday in her prison cell in Bielefeld jail. Last year Frau Haverbeck was sentenced to multiple years of imprisonment. Her “offence” ? She had asked, Did the “Holocaust” really take place ? The success of our demonstration was confirmed when the local regional television in its evening news programme reported on our “Free political dissidents” campaign. The TV station showed a still photo (above) of our activity together with the broadcast of a two minute rant made by the City mayor (“Christian-Democrat”) happily standing amongst the antifa counter-protesters.

The veteran British Nationalist, Richard Edmonds, took part in the demonstration. Herewith the translation of his contribution:

Richard Edmonds addresses last weekend’s demonstration in Brandenburg

Dear German friends, my name is Richard Edmonds. I am British.

A few years back a group of us travelled to Brandenburg-Havel in order to show solidity with you at the rally that was held in support of Horst Mahler. Mahler had been locked up in the Brandenburg jail for disputing the so-called “Holocaust”. It is appalling that years later this man who lives for the Truth and who campaigns for the Honour of Germany should be still locked up in prison. The man is 83 years of age, he is suffering from Diabetes, as a result of which both feet have had to be amputated; and still he is not released.

When we were previously here, one of the speakers on behalf of Mahler was the very brave Ursula Haverbeck. Now the ninety year-old Frau Haverbeck is herself in jail in the Bielefeld prison. We all know that the Heroine Ursula Haverbeck has campaigned untiringly for years for the Truth and for the Honour of Germany.

And so have many others. For example, the lady-lawyer, Frau Sylvia Stolz was also jailed for years in the German Federal Republic, because she too campaigned for Justice and Honour. Frau Stolz was the Defence-lawyer for the German-Canadian, Ernst Zundel, who in the year 2003 was accused in the German courts of “Holocaust”-denial. Zundel’s trial became notorious: the judge in the case, Dr. Ulrich Meinerzhagen, found himself obliged in open court to announce that, and I quote: ”It is completely irrelevant whether the Holocaust took place or not. Denial of the Holocaust is a criminal offence and that is all that matters in this court.” As a result of her energetic defence of her client, Ernst Zundel, Frau Stolz was condemned to several years of imprisonment. Zundel himself was jailed for five years at the Mannheim prison. The pair of them are Heroic patriots.

The former senior-school teacher, Gunter Deckert, was condemned to years of imprisonment because he too campaigned and campaigns for the Honour of Germany. The case of Gunter Deckert reveals exactly what is at stake here: in its commentary to Deckert’s case, the major German newspaper, the Frankfuther Allegemeine Zeitung wrote, and I quote:

“Were Deckert’s view (interpretation, understanding, grasp = ‘Auffassung’ in the origin) of the Holocaust to be correct, then it would follow that the German Federal Republic would be based on a lie. Every speech made by the President of the Republic, every commemorative minute’s silence, every history book, would be based on a lie. In so far as Deckert denies the murder of the Jews, he challenges the legitimacy of the German Federal Republic.” Frankfurther Allgemeine Zeitung of August 1994.

Dear Friends, I would like to say here that you are not alone. World-wide you have admirers for your campaign for the historical Truth. For example, the British historian, David Irving, had to stand trial in Vienna for what Irving had said earlier about the Auschwitz camp. Irving was condemned by the Austrian court to three years’ imprisonment. Last year in London, the world-famous French historian, Professor Robert Faurisson gave an hour-long talk before a large and enthusiastic audience over his epoch-making research into the “Holocaust”.

As a guest here in Germany, I cannot do more than quote the former judge of the German Constitutional court, Judge Wolfgang Hoffmann-Riem: “I would not make Holocaust-denial a criminal offence,”: Judge Hoffmann-Riem, as quoted in the Tagesspiegel of the 10th. July 2008.

Finally, friends, as a foreigner here I can only say that one bows the head before such German Heriones and Heroes who have had to suffer for years because of their love for their Fatherland.

Farage party leader quits over ‘racism’ – despite being married to a Jamaican!

Catherine Blaiklock, who resigned today as nominal leader of Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party

The latest weird development in post-UKIP politics involves Catherine Blaiklock, a former UKIP economic spokesman who is the official registered leader of the ‘Brexit Party’.

It has been widely assumed that this party was created as a vehicle for Nigel Farage’s return to frontline politics, following Mr Farage’s resignation from UKIP and on the assumption that he might need a party of his own to contest European Parliamentary elections in the event of Brexit being postponed or cancelled.

In common with UKIP and its various splinter groups, Farage has always insisted that former BNP activists and other ‘racists’ would always be excluded from his movement.

Assisting this ‘anti-racist’ agenda, it was helpful that Ms Blaiklock was herself married to a black Jamaican, and had previously been married to a Nepalese Sherpa!

Yet today Ms Blaiklock has been forced to resign for ‘racism’. Her crime seems to have been to retweet messages by former BNP activist Mark Collett, who was a speaker at H&D‘s John Tyndall Memorial Meeting in 2017.

What will be the next fake outrage? Have we really reached the stage where it is unacceptable for anyone in mainstream politics to address racial issues? If so then mainstream politicians are in for a few surprises.

‘Terrorist’ double standards shame our Disunited Kingdom

INLA godfather Harry Flynn

While media attention focuses on Westminster’s Brexit drama, a far more blatant betrayal of the national interest by Theresa May’s government proceeds unchallenged.

A retired Parachute Regiment soldier is facing prosecution for his role in ‘Bloody Sunday’ almost half a century ago, in yet another naked appeasement of Sinn Fein / IRA. While most actual terrorists in Ulster were given an amnesty for their crimes as part of the now collapsing ‘Good Friday Agreement’, British soldiers are still at risk of being hauled into court and accused of ‘murder’.

The latest victim is known only as ‘Soldier F’: now in his 70s, he faces two murder charges and four of attempted murder. This week a fellow veteran handed back his service medal in protest at this politically motivated prosecution.

Meanwhile a notorious terrorist godfather basks in the sun, even though his gang took no part in the Good Friday Agreement and the amnesty process, so in theory there is nothing to prevent his apprehension.

Harry Flynn runs the Celts Well pub in the Majorcan resort of Santa Ponsa, where his INLA flag proudly flies above the bar and terrorist memorabilia is openly displayed.

The remains of Airey Neave’s car after it was blown apart by Harry Flynn’s INLA murder gang

He was on the run for many years after escaping from jail in 1975 while awaiting trial for a bank robbery carried out to raise funds for INLA, and in 1987 he was jailed in France together with terrorist confederates after taking delivery of an arms shipment including a hundred anti-tank weapons, forty Kalashnikov rifles, three machineguns and two mortars.

At that point British authorities sought his extradition, as he was wanted for questioning as a senior INLA commander in relation to the murder of Conservative MP Airey Neave.

Following in their disreputable tradition of protecting anti-British terrorists (such as Sorbonne philosopher Professor Robert Misrahi, who planted a bomb in London for the Zionist Stern Gang but has never faced justice), French authorities refused to extradite Flynn, and he moved on to Majorca where he has lived for the past thirty years.

H&D readers might be forgiven for wondering why today’s British soldiers should continue to obey the orders of a treacherous government.

Reuters retracts report on Bulgarian nationalist march

A controversial report by a Reuters journalist led to an official reaction from the organisers of a Nationalist rally in the Bulgarian capital Sofia. Mirko Savage reports:
…….
Reuters, one of the leading news agencies worldwide, have retracted part of their news report about a Nationalist demonstration held in Bulgaria on February 16th, 2019. The torchlit rally, known as the “Lukov March”, honours the memory of General Hristo Lukov, the Bulgarian patriot and hero from the First World War.

Lukov was the leader of the Union of Bulgarian National Legions, which was the most powerful patriotic organisation in the 1930’s. Because of his activities as a Nationalist and his ties to prominent high rank German officials of the era he was killed by a communist assault group on 13th of February, 1943.

In the initial version of the report, written by Angel Krasimirov, a Bulgarian Reuters reporter, participants of the event were described as being “…  Mostly young man in dark clothing, many bearing swastikas and making the Nazi salute.”

Several days after the publication of the Reuters news report a representative of the organisers of the Lukov March contacted Krasimirov by telephone asking him for proof positive of his description of march participants being, “Mostly young man in dark clothing, many bearing swastikas and making the Nazi salute” as stated in his report.

The journalist was kindly reminded that these were serious accusations that needed to be proven, as such acts are considered a crime according to article 108 (1) of the Bulgarian Penal Code.

Krasimirov claimed that he personally witnessed the above-mentioned people, symbols and actions while walking around different locations in downtown Sofia BEFORE the rally had even started. He however admitted he didn’t have any actual photo or video evidence that could prove his claims. Nevertheless the damage had already been done, as the original version of the article had by now been read by thousands on the Reuters web site and had also been quoted by several other online news websites worldwide such as News Yahoo, Business Insider and the Times of Israel.After being contacted by the Nationalist representative, Krasimirov, (following the standards of the media that he works for), slightly edited his report later that same day.
Corrections can be seen HERE (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-bulgaria-farright-march/far-right-activists-stage-torchlit-march-in-bulgarian-capital-idUSKCN1Q50PG)

The author admitted that the initial version of paragraph 3 of his article could easily have misled readers  but he went on to claim that this had not been his purpose.

However he is still unable to prove in any way that there were people “who wore shirts emblazoned with swastikas and made the Nazi salute at several places before the start of the march in downtown Sofia”, a claim that still remains in Krasimirov’s partially corrected version. No photos or videos of such where ever taken. Nor was he able to prove that such people (if there even were any) had participated in the torchlit march as well.

Remember that the Lukov March itself had been heavily guarded by around 700 police officers. Police cameras had filmed the whole event and the state prosecutor was on duty that day monitoring the marchers for the use of any forbidden symbols or slogans.
At least a dozen domestic and international TV channels were present, as well as many other journalists and photo reporters too. There was not a single incident or one official complaint before, during or after the march.

In a statement, Zvezdimir Andronov, Chairman of the Bulgarian National Union, who were the organisers of the torchlit Lukov March rally, pointed out that,  “A case such as this can only serve as an example of how the mainstream mass media try to portray the people who attend Nationalist rallies in Bulgaria and across Europe. We will not tolerate any attempt at spreading unproven information towards us and our fellow supporters”.

Guillaume Faye (1949-2019)

One of Europe’s greatest intellectuals Guillaume Faye has died from cancer at the age of 69.

M. Faye was a major figure of the French New Right, originally centred on the Paris-based organisation GRECE at the end of the 1970s.

The publishers Arktos has done an important service to the cause of White European survival by producing English translations of some of Faye’s most important works, several of which were reviewed for H&D by Ian Freeman.

An obituary of Guillaume Faye will appear in the May edition of H&D.

Tories expel ‘Islamophobes’

Baroness Warsi, former chairman of the Conservative Party, has called for an inquiry into ‘Islamophobia’ in Tory ranks

The Conservative Party today expelled fourteen members for alleged ‘Islamophobic’ posts on a Facebook page.

This followed the resignation of Peter Lamb, who had been due to stand as a Conservative candidate in May’s local elections for Harlow Borough Council.

Mr Lamb had made several anti-Muslim posts on Twitter and had become the focus of demands by the party’s former chairman Baroness Warsi (herself Muslim) for an internal inquiry into the extent of Tory ‘Islamophobia’.

Peter Lamb has quit as a Tory council candidate following controversy over his anti-Muslim posts on Twitter

Many of the comments by purported Tory activists are remarkably stupid, but it does look as though Prime Minister Theresa May has seized on this mini-scandal in an effort to contrast her party with Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour, where Jewish activists claim there has been a reluctance to deal with ‘anti-semitism’.

However like many such unprincipled gestures, it risks tainting the Tories among potential UKIPish, ‘BNP-lite’ voters, while failing to gain them much on the other side, because most committed liberal, obsessive ‘antiracists’ wouldn’t vote Tory at present in any case – unless they are Jews on the liberal left who prioritise defeating Corbyn, in which case they probably don’t care about Islamophobia…

Prof. Rob Ford of Manchester University (co-author of a book about the rise of UKIP) has posted interesting comments about the Tories’ dilemma over multiculturalism. (see series of tweets below)

Many H&D readers will think Prof Ford is too obsessed by the supposed need to modernise the Tories long-term in order to capture liberal/non-white votes. An equally plausible route to power would be to appeal to White social conservatives.

At present one big problem is that many of these, while potentially agreeing with a conservative agenda on immigration and other social issues, profoundly disagree with the Tory (and for that matter UKIP) policies on economic austerity, privatisation of former nationalised industries such as rail and the Post Office, and the worship of the ‘free’ market.

Is it Corbyn or the mainstream media who’s “lost the plot”?

Tomorrow’s Daily Mail predictably attacks Jeremy Corbyn for having “lost the plot”, choosing to print a photograph of the Labour leader gardening on his allotment as the storm clouds gathered and seven of his rebellious MPs broke away to form an “Independent Group”.

Their assumption seems to be that it was somehow weird or arrogant for Corbyn to be on his allotment at such a time.

I wonder whether voters will see it that way? They don’t share the obsessions of political journalists and part of Corbyn’s success at the 2017 election was because (despite his ‘extremist’ policies) many Britons saw him as a normal bloke – his allotment and Arsenal allegiances were part of that.

If most voters were concerned about Corbyn’s previous associations with Sinn Fein, or his links with alleged ‘antisemites’, then they would have ditched the Labour Party long ago.

The Jewish Chronicle has long attacked Corbyn for ‘antisemitism’: most voters don’t care

Sadly for Fleet St, and sadly for many H&D readers, most Labour voters are probably more concerned about the effects of Tory austerity cuts than they are about terrorism in Northern Ireland, arguments about Zionism and ‘antisemitism’, or even Britain’s membership of the EU.

That’s why when in 2017 Theresa May offered them the opportunity to elect a House of Commons committed to securing Brexit, the voters instead returned the present hung parliament.

Doubtless the latest split will do some electoral damage to Labour, but a great deal might depend on whether the Tories also split, and especially on whether really heavyweight Tories can be persuaded to join the breakaway.

Latest rumours are that a gang of four female Tory MPs are most likely to defect: Anna Soubry (who has already removed references to the Conservative Party from her Twitter biography), Dr Sarah Wollaston, former cabinet minister Justine Greening, and Heidi Allen.

Perhaps a bigger prize would be Sir Alan Duncan, who is still in Theresa May’s government as a Foreign Office Minister of State responsible for Europe and the Americas. Whereas some of the defectors are pretty much in the ‘wet’ Tory Reform Group (TRG) tradition, Alan Duncan was closely associated with William Hague and in his student days was a leading figure in the so-called ‘Magdalen machine’, the main ‘right-wing’ rival to TRG inside the Oxford University Conservative Association.

In common with several other leaders of the ‘Magdalen machine’, Sir Alan is a homosexual. He is also unusual among modern Tories in taking a broadly pro-Palestinian line on Middle East matters, and was among the main targets for the covert Israeli Embassy lobbyist Shai Mosat, exposed by Al Jazeera in 2017.

In this respect Sir Alan would make an unusual ally for the solidly pro-Zionist Labour faction who have created the ‘Independent Group’. However it’s possible these hardcore Zionists might welcome him for this very reason, as it would help to deflect suspicions that the whole business is a Mossad plot to prevent a Corbyn premiership!

Labour splits: is this the end of the two-party system?

This morning the long-expected split began in Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party. Seven MPs resigned and will now sit as an ‘Independent Group’ in the House of Commons.

The group includes one relic of the 1990s New Labour project, Stockport MP Ann Coffey who was Tony Blair’s parliamentary private secretary. However another is Chris Leslie, MP for Nottingham East, who during New Labour’s civil war was a supporter of Gordon Brown rather than Blair, and is married to one of Brown’s former aides.

Two others are among the most strongly pro-Zionist MPs in Parliament: Luciana Berger, Jewish MP for Liverpool Wavertree, and Mike Gapes, who though not Jewish himself is best known for his five years as a very pro-Zionist chairman of the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee.

It seems likely that some of Corbyn’s other Jewish critics have deliberately avoided joining the rebel group because they didn’t want it to be perceived as disproportionately Jewish. If significant numbers join the seven initial members, one would expect them eventually to include Dame Margaret Hodge and Dame Louise Ellman, though the latter has tweeted that she will continue to “fight the virus of antisemitism in the Labour Party from within”.

For the time being the “Independent Group” will not be a registered political party and will not fight elections. This avoids them having to contest the forthcoming local elections in May, where they would doubtless be crushed.

Chuka Umunna, effective leader of the Independent Group and once seen as a future Labour Prime Minister – has he committed political suicide?

Yet the intellectual leader of the group, half-Nigerian MP for Streatham, Chuka Umunna, has strongly implied that he sees the group evolving into a new “centrist” party. Umunna is a former City lawyer whose maternal grandfather, Sir Helenus ‘Buster’ Milmo, was the leading MI5 interrogator during the Second World War before becoming a High Court judge.

Westminster has been rife with rumours for the last fortnight that Umunna was about to launch such a party alongside Anna Soubry and other fanatically pro-EU Conservatives. Perhaps these rebel Tories have been put off by the undoubted practical difficulties of launching a new party, but if Theresa May does eventually position the Conservative Party as unequivocally pro-Brexit, or if she is replaced by a Brexiteer such as Boris Johnson, we can assume Ms Soubry and a few others will team up with Mr Umunna.

According to an email circular this morning from Stephen Bush, the well-connected political editor of the New Statesman, it was Gavin Shuker, MP for Luton South, who helped persuade the other six that it was time for a formal split. Mr Shuker is an unusual character, who in one respect has nothing in common with New Labour ‘centrism’. Before standing for parliament in 2010 he was leader and pastor of the City Life Church in Luton: he opposes ‘gay marriage’ and has taken a number of other stances on ‘moral questions’ that put him at odds with the liberal consensus.

Gavin Shuker, the former Christian pastor who registered the limited company behind the new ‘Independent Group’ of MPs

The group is not registered as a party with the Electoral Commission, but it operates from an office in Altrincham, near Manchester, in the name of a limited company called ‘Gemini A Ltd’ which Shuker created on January 16th this year.

One of the Labour rebels, Angela Smith, MP for the marginal Yorkshire seat Penistone & Stocksbridge, made much of her working-class roots (in contrast to the well-heeled Umunna). But a problem for such people is that while working-class Britons might find their traditional Labour loyalties strained by Corbyn’s trendy-left, London-dominated Momentum faction, many such voters (including in Ms Smith’s own constituency) voted to leave the EU and remain pro-Brexit.

Anna Soubry, notoriously pro-EU MP for Broxtowe, and the most likely Tory to join Umunna’s ‘Independent Group’

Umunna’s “independents” have made it clear that being pro-EU and campaigning for a second referendum to overturn the 2016 result is a fundamental component of their so-called ‘centrism’.

That’s why the best known earlier anti-Corbyn rebel, Birkenhead MP Frank Field who quit Labour to sit as an independent last August, will certainly not be joining Umunna’s group. Similarly other anti-Corbyn MPs who might be thought on the right of Labour – Kate Hoey, Graham Stringer and John Mann – will certainly not be on board.

In fact one might logically expect two Independent Groups to the right of Corbyn’s Labour – one pro-Brexit and one pro-Remain!

If this really is the long-overdue breakup of the two-party stranglehold on British politics, one eventual consequence will have to be a change in the electoral system.

Only then will we see a realistic chance for the views of forgotten millions of British voters to be represented at Westminster, and a real challenge to the dead consensus of multiracialism.

Ending the “reign of egoism”: Tolkien and Le Pen’s granddaughter

Dr Joseph Pearce, now a Roman Catholic scholar in the USA but probably better known to most H&D readers for his days as a young NF activist and Bulldog editor in the 1980s, has just published a preview of the forthcoming film Tolkien.

Not without reason, Dr Pearce speculates that the new film will amount to “Wormtongue’s revenge”, and will seek to impose homosexual/bisexual themes that have nothing to do with Tolkien’s life and work.

H&D is not a religious journal and we do not concern ourselves with questions of personal morality or the private lives of individuals.

However it is interesting to read Dr Pearce’s article in the context of last year’s speech by Marion Maréchal Le Pen (granddaughter of French National Front founder Jean-Marie Le Pen) to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), an event where H&D used to be represented before the usual suspects ensured that our editor Mark Cotterill was excluded from the USA!

Marion Maréchal (as she now likes to be known to avoid confusion with her aunt Marine Le Pen), presented a challenge to Anglo-American conservative assumptions, which for at least the past couple of centuries have tended to be based on individualism.

Denouncing what she termed the “reign of egoism”, she pointed out:

“Today, even children have now become merchandise. We hear now in the public debate, we have the right to order a child from a catalog, we have the right to rent a woman’s womb, we have the right to deprive a child of a mother or father. No you don’t! A child is not a ‘right’. Is this the freedom that we want? No. We don’t want this atomized world of individuals without gender, without fathers, without mothers, and without nation.”

Analysing this CPAC speech for The American Conservative, Rod Dreher suggested that the contrast between Marion Maréchal’s speech and individualist philosophy normally encountered in such circles emphasised “how very, very Protestant most American conservatism is”, and that “even American Catholics are a lot more Protestant in how they think politically than they realize”. He also linked to an earlier commentary on the same speech by Michael Brendan Dougherty for National Review.

One doesn’t have to be a Catholic – or even a Christian – to get their point, nor does one have to be a racial nationalist. These ideas would be familiar academically to anyone who has read the works of Max Weber or R.H. Tawney (the latter was an Anglo-Catholic socialist).

Tolkien of course was a lifelong Catholic, and one of the underlying themes of The Lord of the Rings is the rejection of selfish power-seeking in favour of traditional community values – the values of the Shire as opposed to the values of Mordor.

H&D readers will justifiably fear that such values will either be absent or treated with postmodern contempt in the forthcoming Tolkien film.

Death of the ‘Zionic woman’

Lady Falkender, whose death was announced yesterday

Marcia Williams (later Lady Falkender) was once the most powerful woman in Britain. As political secretary to Harold Wilson – Prime Minister from 1964-70 and 1974-76 – she exercised influence in Downing Street to an extent few other such staff members have ever approached.

The precise nature of her relationship with Wilson remained a mystery, and as late as 2007 she sued the BBC for claims in a drama-documentary that she and the PM had been lovers.

Most notoriously she was held responsible for the inclusion of several disreputable businessmen in Wilson’s final honours list at the time of his resignation in 1976. This became known as the “lavender list” because it was drawn up on Falkender’s personal notepaper.

Almost all of the disreputable names on this list were wealthy Jews, but Falkender’s obituaries this weekend delicately avoided the subject of Jews and Israel – even though during the 1970s this connection was so notorious that satirical magazine Private Eye labelled Falkender “the Zionic woman”.

Heritage and Destiny readers will learn much more later this year about the web of Zionist connections in Harold Wilson’s Downing Street – a web of organised crime, money laundering and (eventually) murder.
