UPDATE: Vincent Reynouard’s first interview from his Edinburgh prison cell

Vincent Reynouard (seen here with the late Richard Edmonds who presented him with the Robert Faurisson International Prize) was a guest speaker alongside Professor Faurisson and Peter Rushton at the Professor’s final conference, organised by H&D in Shepperton, London in 2018.

Jailed French scholar Vincent Reynouard has given his first interview from his Edinburgh jail cell where he is presently detained, awaiting extradition to France where he faces several years incarceration for ‘crimes’ that are no offence under English law.

The interview has just been published in French by the journal Rivarol, a longstanding champion of academic freedom and real history, and now in English translation at the new Real History blog of our assistant editor Peter Rushton.

This outrageous case will be covered in detail by H&D when it comes to trial in February.

Vincent remains in good spirits. An English translation of his letter was earlier published at the Real History blog. Click here to read the latest news from the jailed historian Vincent Reynouard.

Madrid authorities seek to jail H&D writer in blatant political prosecution

Madrid prosecutors aim to jail Isabel Peralta, H&D’s European correspondent, for her comments at a demonstration last year.

Isabel Peralta – European correspondent of H&D who recently addressed our meeting in Preston – is in court this week in Madrid, where the authorities aim to jail her for three years.

The case has been brought under Spain’s equivalent of the UK’s racial incitement laws, but as our assistant editor Peter Rushton explains in this article, Isabel is being targeted in blatant political machinations: not only by the Spanish government, but also by lobbyists working in the interests of the Moroccan government.

For this and other reasons which we shall disclose in a later article, the prosecution of Isabel Peralta is a disgrace to Spanish justice. If she is convicted, the matter will be appealed if necessary as far as the European Court. Spanish politicians and Moroccan lobbyists are the true criminals, working against the interests of Spain and against the interests of Europeans.

Isabel Peralta addressing H&D’s event in Preston a few weeks ago

The case dates back to 18th May 2021, when a demonstration was held outside the Moroccan Embassy in Madrid by a Spanish nationalist youth group. Isabel was at the time a leading activist in this group.

In an interview and speech, both of which were later broadcast on YouTube, Isabel explained the purpose of this demonstration: to draw attention to the attempted blackmail being exerted by the Moroccan Government, who were threatening to flood Spain with immigrants unless Spain accepted Moroccan control over Western Sahara.

This is a diplomatic dispute that has been going on for more than half a century, ever since Spain gave up its colonial control over the province once known as Spanish Sahara. Morocco seeks to grab the entire area for itself, but is opposed by an independence movement called Polisario Front, which is backed by Algeria.

It is in Spaniards’ economic interest to back the Polisario, partly in order to remain on good terms with Algeria, which supplies Spain with natural gas. But for the past two years the Moroccan government has exerted blackmail on Spain.

Spain’s shameless Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez being entertained by leading politicians in Morocco in April 2022 after his government’s surrender to Moroccan blackmail.

Morocco’s main weapon is control over illegal immigration into Spanish territory. They have indicated that they are prepared to turn the immigration tap on or off. And Spain’s socialist government is naturally unable or unwilling to take firm action against the consequent flood, just as it fails to resist mass immigration from elsewhere.

Essentially this was the background to the demonstration addressed by Isabel Peralta in Madrid in May last year. The demonstration targeted both the Moroccan government’s blackmail, and the Spanish authorities’ weakness.

Isabel’s interview and speech was making a serious and well-informed case. She explained that the demonstrators had come to the Embassy “to stand up to the indecency of our politicians who look the other way, while we suffer unprecedented racial replacement”.

She emphasised that “the problem here is not Morocco. The problem is what purports to be our own government, which with impunity sets off this explosion: the arrival of immigrants on a massive scale.”

Since politicians were not prepared to stand up to the Moroccan government’s blackmail, Spanish nationalist youth had to come forward. Isabel concluded her interview with words that require some explanation to British readers: “We shall not allow another Green March.”

Moroccan invaders on the ‘Green March’ in November 1975

The Green March – on 6th November 1975 – was the deliberate incursion by 350,000 Moroccans (organised by their government) into what was still Spanish colonial territory, in what is now Western Sahara. Because Spain was beginning its decolonisation, its soldiers were ordered not to open fire and to accept what was essentially an invasion.

So the Green March was a Spanish surrender, abandoning their responsibility to their former colonial subjects. Spain signed the so-called Madrid Accords, which effectively rewarded Morocco for their illegal invasion. (Part of the problem was that this was happening during the last weeks of General Franco’s life: he was dying and incapable of exercising any political authority.)

During her speech to the rally outside the Moroccan Embassy, Isabel picked up the theme that had concluded her interview: “Now as in 1975, they are trying again and they are coming with force, and 5,000 now seems like a lot to us, but in ten years they will seem like few, because if we do not stop them this will be our future: immigration in Europe will supplant our race, our diversity, our religion and our culture, and we are the only ones who are going to fight for it.”

The context is very clear: Isabel is correctly comparing the surrender in 1975, when the Spanish government gave in to Moroccan invaders and betrayed the indigenous people of Western Sahara, to the potential surrender in 2021-2022, when today’s Spanish government is similarly weak in the face of Moroccan threats.

Isabel addressing the Embassy rally in May 2021. Her accurate analysis of Spain’s surrender to Moroccan blackmail has resulted in Isabel herself – not treacherous politicians and lobbyists – facing trial!

It turned out that Isabel was absolutely correct. Not only has the Madrid government continued to allow floods of immigrants, it has also surrendered to Morocco’s blackmail. In March 2022, almost a year after Isabel’s comments, Spain’s socialist government carried out a U-turn and adopted a pro-Moroccan position, abandoning the decades-long Spanish policy that Western Sahara’s future should be settled by a referendum of its inhabitants.

The U-turn threatens vital trade deals including the supply of natural gas from Algeria.

The entire situation is a shambles, rooted in the inability of Spain’s socialist government to stand up for Spanish interests.

As so often across the West, when the arguments of nationalists are vindicated, the authorities’ response is to persecute us. And as so often, weakness in the face of an invader or a blackmailer merely invites further invasion and further blackmail.

This time it is our correspondent Isabel Peralta who is on the frontline. As they prepared their surrender to Morocco, the Spanish authorities launched a prosecution of Isabel, which has come to court in Madrid this week. Prosecutors are asking for her to be jailed for up to three years.

In presenting her interview and speech as inciting racial violence, prosecutors have deliberately ignored its political context. They have not only deliberately distorted her speech, they have even omitted crucial words from the transcript. Isabel clearly said that the demonstration was anti-immigration, but not motivated by hatred of any race. Such hatred, she emphasised, would be absurd since our entire political outlook is based on recognition of racial differences. We are motivated, she pointed out, “by admiration and devotion to our own race in the face of a threat to its very existence”.

The political manipulation at the heart of this case is obvious from official papers that I have examined.

Mohammed Chaib (above, third left) at an official Moroccan event with his good friend Karima Benyaïch, the Moroccan Ambassador to Madrid, plus socialist MP Ricardo Garcia and Spain’s honorary consul in Morocco, Khadija El Gabsi. Chaib has extensive Moroccan business interests – an employee of his foundation brought the only criminal complaint against Isabel’s speech.

Ten days after the demonstration, Madrid’s political police were visited by Sofia Bencrimo, an employee of a charity that promotes the integration of immigrants. Later the same day these police officers sent a report to the prosecutors: this was the first step in the process leading to Isabel’s criminal trial.

The political police (duly followed by prosecutors) presented Ms Bencrimo’s complaint against Isabel as though it reflected a charity standing up for ordinary immigrants who felt threatened by Isabel’s words. In the entire prosecution dossier of more than 90 pages, which I have studied in detail, Ms Bencrimo’s is the only complaint from anyone outside Spanish officialdom.

Yet the organisation this complainant represented – the Ibn Battuta Foundation – is not as simple as police and prosecutors pretend.

Its president is Mohammed Chaib Akhdim, a veteran politician and businessman with close personal and financial ties to the Moroccan government – the very people whose actions were being exposed and criticised in Isabel’s speech.

Chaib is a former MP in both the Catalan and Madrid parliaments for the left-wing party PSC (Socialists Party of Catalonia). But he is also a wealthy businessman with financial interests in his native Morocco, and in particular stands to benefit from Morocco taking control of Western Sahara. Since 1992 he was been director of business development in Morocco for COMSA Industrial, a company with vast interests in engineering and construction projects in Morocco, including the disputed territory of Western Sahara.

Mohammed Chaib (second left) with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez. Chaib’s business will profit greatly from Sánchez’s surrender to Morocco over Western Sahara; meanwhile the politicised Spanish police prosecute Isabel Peralta for drawing attention to the treachery of Sánchez’s government. An employee of Chaib’s foundation brought the complaint that facilitated this prosecution.

It is a remarkable coincidence that the “charity worker” who brought the complaint against Isabel Peralta was an employee of Chaib’s foundation.

H&D fully supports our brave and brilliant comrade Isabel. We look forward to her victory over this politically motivated prosecution – however long that victory takes.

We shall be reporting further on the development of this case, and on the related political persecution of Isabel in Germany, which was assisted by border security in our own country who disgracefully detained her for more than six hours a few weeks ago during her visit to England. Check this website and our January edition of H&D for more extraordinary revelations about the state of European justice.

Udo Walendy: soldier, patriot and scholar (1927-2022)

Udo Walendy – German patriot and pioneering revisionist scholar and publisher – died last night aged 95. The following obituary is reposted from the Real History Blog.

Born in Berlin, he was among the last of the wartime generation, having served as a teenager in the Reich Labour Force, then as a Luftwaffe auxiliary, and finally as a soldier in the Wehrmacht, turning 18 less than four months before the end of the war.

After an early career in education and business, Udo became one of the very first pioneers of revisionist history, publishing the first edition of his book Wahrheit für Deutschland – Die Schuldfrage des Zweiten Weltkriegs (‘Truth for Germany: the guilt question of the Second World War’) in 1964, a decade before the 1970s explosion of revisionist scholarship. This book appeared in many subsequent editions in several languages.

Among his most significant contributions to that scholarship was his long-running series Historische Tatsachen, published latterly by Siegfried Verbeke’s VHO in Flanders.

A major figure on the international revisionist scene, Udo was a long-time board member of the Institute for Historical Review (IHR), and was a witness at both of the groundbreaking trials of Canadian-German revisionist publisher Ernst Zündel, in 1985 and 1988.

When the NPD was formed in 1964 as the main nationalist party in what was then West Germany, Udo Walendy became one of its first members, serving on the party’s federal executive from 1967-73, and as state chairman of the NPD in North-Rhine-Westphalia from 1971-73.

In 1996-97 Udo Walendy served prison sentences under Germany’s notorious debate-denying Volksverhetzung law, and was prosecuted on many other occasions, as well as suffering frequent official harassment and the seizure of his books and magazines.

Until his eyesight failed in his final years, Udo Walendy remained extremely active as a revisionist and as a patriot, standing as mayoral candidate for the NPD in his home city of Mönchengladbach in 2014, when he was already aged 87.

The last of the wartime generation are leaving us, as are many of the pioneering revisionist generation of the 1960s and 1970s. The great intellectual adventure of our times (as Robert Faurisson called it) continues, as the torch is passed to new revisionist leaders such as Vincent Reynouard, now battling extradition to France where a new prison sentence would await him, and then on to a new generation of brave and articulate European intellectuals.

The truth – or as Professor Faurisson preferred to put it, “exactitude” – will never be silenced. Wahrheit macht Frei!

Michael Easter 1935-2022

It was with great sadness that we heard the news of death of Mike Easter last week aged 87.

Mike joined the National Front in 1976 (one year before me) and later followed John Tyndall first into the New NF in 1981 and then into the British National Party as a founder member in 1982 (also like me).

I first remember meeting Mike with his good friend Geoff Burnett (also from Tonbridge in Kent) at the BNPs St. George’s Day march through central London in April 1982. The theme of the march was “Keep the Falklands British”. 

To be honest Mike was not a big fan of H&D (although he did subscribe for a while around ten years ago), and his outlook on nationalism was different to ours.

However, he was a longstanding dedicated British nationalist, even actively leafleting with his local Kent NF group well into his 80s.

Mike Easter (above far right) set a fine example for all British nationalists – leafleting with his local NF group in Kent well into his 80s.

Mike will be sorely missed by his big family, his friends and comrades in the NF and in the wider nationalist community.

Mark Cotterill, Editor, Heritage and Destiny.

A full obituary for Mike Easter can be found on the NF website.

“Terrorist” travesty – police act as political puppets in harassment of H&D’s Isabel Peralta

Our guest speaker at the recent Preston meeting – Spanish nationalist activist Isabel Peralta – was detained at Manchester Airport for more than six hours (under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act) after flying from Madrid the night before the event.

Isabel and H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton therefore had only 90 minutes sleep before the meeting!

Despite never having been convicted of any offence, Isabel was further harassed by the authorities, who retained her phone and computer for five days. And the extraordinary fortnight of persecution continued when German authorities issued an exclusion order banning Isabel from Germany for 20 years! This is again despite her never having been convicted of any criminal offence. In fact Isabel herself has brought a court action in Madrid against the Jerusalem Post and Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Despite her 6-hour detention and interrogation – and after only 90 minutes sleep – Isabel Peralta and H&D Assistant Editor Peter Rushton were very happy to arrive at the H&D meeting in Preston, joining fellow speakers including (above left to right) Dr Jim Lewthwaite, Keith Axon and Laura Towler.

In the attached video, we examine the political persecution of Isabel Peralta and the discrediting of Europe’s anti-terrorist laws, which are used as excuses for political harassment and “fishing expeditions” for political intelligence, wholly unrelated to any genuine anti-terrorist concerns.

[video update] Great success for H&D’s Richard Edmonds, Colin Jordan & John Tyndall Memorial Meeting

Over seventy nationalists from different parties and groups attended the Heritage and Destiny 2022 Richard Edmonds, Colin Jordan & John Tyndall Memorial Meeting, held in Preston, Lancashire on Sunday 25th September 2022. Video is now online at H&D‘s new Odysee channel.

Meeting Chairman was Keith Axon: a former NF & BNP organiser, and longstanding friend of both John Tyndall and Richard Edmonds.

For the first time we had two women speakers and would have had three had Julie Lake not been prevented from attending due to a family bereavement. This was one of many aspects of this year’s meeting that both on the panel and in the audience showed the increasing diversity of European nationalism.

Speakers at this year’s highly successful H&D meeting included (above left to right): Dr Jim Lewthwaite, chairman of the British Democrats; Keith Axon, meeting chairman; Peter Rushton (H&D assistant editor); Isabel Peralta (H&D European correspondent); and Laura Towler, deputy leader of Patriotic Alternative.

For the fourth time we also had an international guest whom we kept secret until the last moment. H&D‘s European correspondent Isabel Peralta overcame a six-hour detention by UK Border Force and (after having only 90 minutes sleep!) was able to attend and speak in England for the first time.

Our Spanish guest was delighted to meet so many excellent new comrades especially her fellow speaker Laura Towler, deputy leader of Patriotic Alternative. Isabel and Laura are an inspiration to a new generation of intelligent young women across Europe who know that women have an even greater stake than men in rescuing European civilization.

Laura and her husband Sam Melia brought the youngest ever attendee to an H&D event, their baby Catherine whom we can already see is a remarkably attentive and disciplined comrade! While Catherine was our youngest audience member, our oldest included subscribers from Salford (former BNP activists) and Warwickshire (a former NSM activist).

Our audience and speaker panel included a former Member of the European Parliament, an elected borough councillor, and four former borough councillors.

Benny Bullman launched the meeting with a fine tribute to the founder of Blood & Honour, Ian Stuart, who was born 65 years ago in the Lancashire town of Poulton-le-Fylde. Benny’s organisation Rock Against Communism had just a few days ago held a commemoration for the 29th anniversary of Ian’s death. Benny emphasised that great comrades such as Ian Stuart still live with us in spirit and we are all determined to be worthy of their legacy.

Laura Towler then explained the cultural mission of Patriotic Alternative, which for the past three years has been fighting to get across the message that White Lives Matter – across a broad front of activities from demonstrations to leafletting, mountain hikes to tea retailing! PA has grown rapidly in its three years of existence, despite the handicaps of pandemic conditions, and has combined some of the best veterans of older nationalist parties with a proven ability to attract the best of the younger online nationalist community.

After our lunch interval, a brief unscheduled speech was given by Mike Whitby of British Voice, advertising a forthcoming demonstration regarding the still unsolved murder of Blackpool schoolgirl Charlene Downes. (This demo went ahead with speeches including this pertinent observation by Alek Yerbury from Yorkshire PA.)

Isabel Peralta (speaking in Spanish with an English translation being read by Peter Rushton) explained that our faith in the true European cause was capable of moving mountains: the united force of national socialists across the world will rescue Europe from its kidnappers. We close our ranks with the spirit of those who preceded us: we have truth on our side. National socialism is not a utopia or a historical curiosity, but a vital living idea. Our activists will not be swayed by careerist considerations or media hostility.

Dr Jim Lewthwaite, archaeologist and former Bradford city councillor, now chairman of the British Democrats, hailed the breakdown of the multiracial, multicultural society. Based partly on his father’s experiences in the British Raj as well as recent events in Leicester, Jim argued that the non-White takeover of many towns and cities was now leading to intense conflict between rival non-White factions. The British Democrats are now beginning to attract significant numbers of experienced activists as well as those new to electoral politics, and within the past year have achieved some strong results at the ballot box.

Professor John Kersey, educationalist and musician, who leads several international university-level institutions dedicated to bespoke professional education for high achievers, gave a cogent analysis of the burgeoning threats to traditional British values and freedoms – and to the Christian values that are the bedrock of British and European civilization. The dictatorial grip of the political establishment is at last being resisted: the forces of resistance are no longer marginalised – our agenda of maintaining and restoring British traditions is now at the centre of political debate.

Professor John Kersey, educationalist and musician

Stephen Frost – National Secretary of the British Movement, longstanding friend of Colin Jordan and author of the Colin Jordan biography ‘TWAS A GOOD FIGHT’!, acknowledged that our movement of resistance to multicultural decay is a ‘broad church’ of patriots, not all of whom by any means are national socialists (as represented by BM and Colin Jordan’s earlier organisations). Yet as he emphasised, BM has always been prepared to lend its support to sincere comrades from other groups and parties – in the spirit of Richard Edmonds, Colin Jordan and John Tyndall. CJ and JT had famously fallen out, but only for a very short time in the mid-1960s, and while operating in different movements and styles they shared a core ideological commitment. Our task is to spread propaganda for our cause by any and every means and format: the propaganda war is bringing increasing numbers to realisation of the essential truth of our values.

Stephen Frost, national secretary of British Movement

Peter RushtonAssistant Editor of Heritage and Destiny magazine, historian, author of the new Real History Blog, and TV commentator, pointed out that our previous Preston gathering had been in 2017 which was the year that the word ‘woke’ entered the Oxford English Dictionary. Wokeness means the opposite of ‘awake’ – it means passive acceptance of the surrender of our civilisation. More than a century ago the early Labour movement’s anthem was not the Red Flag but England Arise – which included lines that would today be supported more by adherents of our cause than by 21st century leftists.

Peter Rushton, Assistant Editor of Heritage and Destiny

Peter also examined the development of the UK’s oppressive race laws, which have now been extended to use of the misnamed Terrorism Act for the purpose of political harassment. The previous evening our Spanish guest Isabel Peralta had been detained for hours at Manchester Airport under the Terrorism Act, which meant that she and Peter had less than 90 minutes sleep before heading to the meeting!

Our audience included a former MEP, a serving councillor, ex-councillors and officials from several different nationalist parties.

A separate article later this week will discuss this outrageous abuse of the Terrorism Act.

In addition to the speakers there was an auction and raffle of items donated by H&D‘s friends around the world.

In his speech of thanks to these donors and to our speakers, H&D editor Mark Cotterill said that having now published 110 issues of our magazine, we are determined to carry on as one of the very few hard-copy nationalist publications still in existence. We believe that even in the world of Facebook and YouTube there is an important role for hard-copy publications but of course we depend on subscribers and donors to make our publication possible.

Special thanks to the British Movement Women’s Division who provided an excellent buffet; and to the British Movement Leader Guard who carried out security duties in their usual highly efficient manner to ensure that our speakers and audience were entirely safe from the ‘antifa’ violence that sometime targets nationalist events.

Before the meeting and during the intervals, our audience browsed stalls from several different nationalist groups and journals.

The Monarchy, Football and the Movement

It should not surprise many of us that the recent death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was marked by mockery and disrespect from many in the Irish, Scottish and Scouse Republican movements, including some Shamrock Rovers supporters singing sick songs during a European game against Djurgården at Tallaght Stadium in Dublin; and a motorcade and fireworks in Londonderry, probably organized by the Saoradh party, and/or Republican Sinn Fein who are linked to the New IRA or Real IRA. Other outbreaks of Republican celebrations at the news of the Queen’s death were reported from Belfast, Glasgow and Liverpool. 

What was very surprising was the booing and chants of F*** the Queen, by a small group of Hearts supporters. An impromptu minute’s silence before the second half of Hearts’ clash with İstanbul Başakşehir had to be cut short by the referee after some supporters jeered and shouted obscenities. However, they were drowned out by Hearts Loyalists who sang “God Save the Queen”. Hearts was always regarded as a “Loyalist club”, but recently more and more young SNP supporters have been turning up at Hearts games. 

This badge is typical of the Loyalist image that most readers will associate with the Edinburgh club Hearts

At the two European games that went ahead in England on Thursday evening at the London Stadium (West Ham United) and Old Trafford (Manchester United), the minute’s silence was observed immaculately. I watched the Manchester United game in my local pub and you could have heard a pin drop. Full credit to the Manchester United supporters for their respect (even though the club is known to have a sizeable left-wing republican following.) 

At the London Stadium, West Ham United fans (who – unlike Manchester United – have a large ‘right-wing’ Loyalist following) sang the National Anthem a number of times during the game. And full credit to the Hammers as well.

Glasgow Rangers management and directors lay a wreath at Ibrox in memory of Her Majesty the Queen

Very wisely, all football in the UK was called off this weekend but will resume again on Tuesday.

God only knows what would have happened at Anfield and Parkhead, where a large percentage of Liverpool and Celtic fans are known for their pro-republican / anti-Royalist views (very ironic in the case of Liverpool FC, which is a club founded by Conservative/Unionist Orangemen! – see H&D #109 for a review of the book Merseyside’s Old Firm). 

There was an interesting statement from Michelle O’Neill, Northern Ireland’s first minister in waiting, and vice-president of Sinn Fein (which is the political wing of the IRA), the day after the Queen’s death. 

O’Neill (whose uncle was an IRA terrorist and has no time for the Royal Family) has appealed for her people (i.e. Irish Republicans) to be respectful following the death of the Queen. She made her comments after being asked about reports of footage on social media which appeared to show a cavalcade of cars and fireworks being lit in apparent celebration following the Queen’s death. 

Some anti-Royalist graffiti, mocking the Queen’s death had also appeared on walls in Belfast, Londonderry and Newry in Northern Ireland, as well as in Dublin in the Irish Republic. 

O’Neill said: “This is a time for everybody to be respectful. …Queen Elizabeth has died, there is a family that is mourning her loss. …At the end of the day, she may have been the Queen of England, but she was also a mother, a grandmother, I think people should be very respectful.” 

Interesting words from O’Neill, especially about Queen Elizabeth being “Queen of England”. Obviously, we know O’Neill does not recognize the Monarchy as head of Northern Ireland, but now she has extended this to take in Scotland and Wales as well!

Asked about jokes about the death of the Queen on social media, O’Neill replied: “The British people, people from a unionist identity here are grieving her loss and I think everybody should be very respectful of that and not engage in anything that is anything other than respectful. …I don’t think it’s appropriate for anybody to be engaged in any kind of jokey-type behaviour, someone has died and I think it’s important that we are all respectful.”

O’Neill was speaking after signing the book of condolence at Belfast City Hall for the Queen – as my old friend JR from the States would say: “You just could not make this sort of thing up”! 

Most of us will take O’Neill’s comments with an extra-large pinch of salt, as she and her party are our enemy, just as the SNP are, and under a British nationalist government they would all be banned. 

However, what is surprising – to me anyway – is the amount of abuse, and mockery, and in some cases pure hatred aimed at our late Queen and her family, not by Irish or Scottish republicans or deranged plastic Mickies in Liverpool (we expect that), but by some so-called British racial-nationalists. It’s really incredible (and in some cases quite upsetting) what many of these Facebook/Twitter warriors from ‘our side’ have been posting on social-media since Thursday evening. 

Some sanity did return yesterday, when one of our subscribers – a long-standing racial-nationalist activist from Scotland – posted this reply to them on Facebook. And to use the old adage – “I could not have put it better myself”. 

As an individual I have never been remotely interested in the Royal Family. Granted, as a British patriot I do enjoy the pomp and circumstance, tradition and pageantry that goes with many of the Royal occasions. However, as a Pagan, neither do I have any religious attachment to the Church be it Anglican, Scottish or any others. But across these isles many of my friends and comrades, particularly here in Scotland and over in Ulster, have strong religious beliefs and identify with the monarchy as head of these churches. I respect that entirely and I know that recent events have meant a lot to them. I am however sad that some in our movement have chosen to mock and demean fellow comrades simply for expressing a loss that means so much to them. I like to think I am an ‘O come all ye faithful’ racial nationalist – in that if you are Protestant or Catholic, Pagan or Christian Identity, Royalist or otherwise and you can equate your beliefs with the 14 Words then that is fine by me. So I finish by saying surely there are sometimes people should think twice before they let their bellies rumble, dividing comrades, and just haud yer wheesht – Haud yer weesht (Ed- in English it means shut your mouth or be quiet!)” 

A memorial to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the Shankill Road, Belfast

His statement brought in some replies (see below) from other long-standing racial nationalists.

“I’m almost the same, a lot of my friends are devoted Monarchists and I am not, I am not a fan of any of them, however I am keeping a respectful silence because I think love or loathe them, you can’t blame the woman for the shameful behavior of her progeny and when she passed people have to remember that she was a mother, grandmother to someone, so as I said I will remain silent!” 

On October 20th 1954, I took the Queen’s Shilling and gave in return a solemn oath of allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. I have never wavered from that standpoint. Even since leaving HM’s Forces I have remained loyal. My stance has often met with less than sympathy from various sources, including members of my own family. I deplore the actions of such Royals as Prince Harry and the revolting creature he married. But that in no way detracts from my continued loyalty to the Monarchy, now extended to King Charles III. Long live the King!” 

I agree with you 100% comrade. Some of the ‘Facebook warriors’ attacks on our brothers, just because they support something that we may not wholeheartedly support ourselves, is very disrespectful and sad. No wonder our little movement is in the sad state it’s in.”

As Peter Rushton quite correctly pointed out on Thursday evening on the H&D website, shortly after the Queen’s death was announced: – “Now is not the time for detailed political and constitutional discussion, nor for speculation as to whether the monarch could realistically have done anything to prevent some of the disastrous policy decisions made by governments of different parties during her reign. But we can all wish King Charles III well, and hope that he presides over a very different, revitalised political scene in the years to come.”

The time for such a discussion on the British racial-nationalist movement’s stand on the monarchy will come, and will be thoroughly debated within the pages of H&D magazine – but not this year.

Will the real Nick Griffin please stand up?

You might think that someone from Labour, the Tories or Lib Dems would win the title “grossest hypocritical crook in British politics” – yet this week’s winner is yet again Nick Griffin, former chairman of the BNP.

Less than four months ago, Griffin was taking every opportunity to sneer at the 96-year-old Queen Elizabeth II and her family.

While there is room for a serious debate as to how far the Royal Family shares responsibility for the disastrous trajectory of British politics during the 20th century – especially during the reigns of Elizabeth II and her father George VI – Griffin was characteristically avoiding serious debate and engaging in cheap shots, with implications of weird conspiracy theory.

That’s either because he believes this sort of crass conspiracism, or because he believes that most ‘nationalist’ readers and potential donors have given up on serious politics and are now part of an easily exploited, defeatist cult.

On May 31st Griffin tweeted images of the then Queen and her son (now King Charles III) with two notorious paedophiles – Rolf Harris and Jimmy Savile. Outside the ranks of paranoid loons, no-one believes that the Queen or the future King were aware of or party to these crimes. But Griffin doesn’t care about historical or political truth, he only cares about impressing credulous donors, and he believes (rightly or wrongly) that many of his readers are dupes who can easily be sold this sort of tale.

In another tweet on May 28th, Griffin made a fairer point about the deleterious transformation of Britain during the Queen’s reign, though again with a slight implication that this was part of some weird establishment conspiracy to which the Queen was herself party.

So now that the Queen’s death is the main news headline worldwide, does Griffin take the opportunity to repeat his earlier slurs? Does he even – for once in his life – make a serious point about British politics and the monarchy’s present and historical role?

No, Nick being Nick, he can’t resist the opportunity for yet another hypocritical somersault. He can see a bandwagon, and he attempts to jump on it. Less than four months ago Griffin attacked the Queen as “Elizabeth the Disastrous” and a friend of paedophiles – implicitly part of sinister establishment conspiracies.

Now in Griffin’s latest tweet she is “the rock on which modern Britain was built”. And the privately atheist Nick also indulges in the pseudo-Christian flummery that he has recently embraced as part of his ‘Templar’ scam. The man truly has no shame.

The nauseating hypocrite Nick Griffin was a disaster for British nationalism. Our movement is only now beginning to escape from the wreck he created.

Political prisoner Ursula Haverbeck will spend her 94th birthday in jail

Ursula Haverbeck – seen here with her defence attorney Wolfram Nahrath – is a political prisoner in today’s ‘democratic’ Germany.

Today the Court of Appeal in Berlin confirmed that Ursula must serve a 12 month jail sentence for the ‘crime’ of questioning aspects of her country’s history. She will be summoned to prison at some point during the next few weeks.

This means that Ursula will spend her 94th birthday on November 8th behind bars.

As Tim Garton Ash, the late Eric Hobsbawm and many other historians of widely varying ideological backgrounds have stated, it’s time to scrap the ‘historical memory’ laws that disgrace today’s Europe.

Further updates on Ursula’s case will appear here and at the Real History blog, as well as news of protest actions against tyrannical debate-denying laws that are spreading throughout Europe. Such laws are likely to be heading for the UK under a Liz Truss government – extending our own already tyrannical ‘race laws’. It’s time for Britons and fellow Europeans to reclaim our heritage.
