Julian Assange – no friend of Nationalism – no champion of free speech

It’s a little disappointing that some nationalists (including Pauline Hanson, leader of One Nation party in Australia – who compared him to a latter-day Ned Kelly!) who should really know better, have come out in support of the mega-loon Julian Assange, who is currently being held in HMP Belmarsh – along with Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (AKA Tommy), young members of National Action, and Islamic Terrorists.

A small number of misguided nationalists have associated themselves with campaigns on behalf of the imprisoned Julian Assange.

Do these well-meaning, but silly nationalists not understand that Assange, apart from being a sexual deviant (although not a rapist) is (or was – as now as he’s banged up) an active anti-racist/anti-nationalist campaigner, back in his native Australia, where he made a point of attacking “racism” in general and nationalists in particular? He stood for almost everything that we as nationalists are fighting against!

And do these well-meaning nationalists defend what Assange did to the British National Party (BNP) just over a decade ago in 2008, when he hacked into their (the BNP’s) computers and stole their entire membership list of around 13,500 people?

And did these same well-meaning nationalists support Assange when he uploaded the said BNP membership list (full names/home addresses/phone numbers etc.) onto his own Wikileaks website for all the world to see/read?

And finally, do they know (and support) what happened to many of these BNP members, once their names and home addresses were leaked? Many of them were physically attacked, and/or had their homes attacked (by extreme left-winger anti-fascist activists), and many of them lost their jobs (including policemen, soldiers, teachers, and even nurses) after they were “outed” in the left-wing UK press.

After that, many professional people thought twice about joining parties such as the BNP, as they had no wish to be “outed” themselves at some later date. This helped destroy the BNP (although it must be pointed out that there were a lot of other factors that led to the BNP’s demise, some not a million miles away from Welshpool!).

Around the time or just after the BNP membership leak, Assange entertained the idea of “a broad Jewish conspiracy out to subvert him and to block his work.” He described discovering the “real” reason for the BBC broadcasting a flagship Panorama news programme on his company – Wikileaks: The Secret Story in 2011: “We finally found out that the producer’s wife for this show was part of the Zionist movement in London.” This was news to the producer and his wife, neither of which were Jewish, and had no connection with Zionism or Israel or Tottenham Hotspur FC for that matter!

Assange told Agoravox, a French news site, that he believed that the BBC’s rationale for making the program was to influence the UK judges who would decide his fate – whether or not he should be extradited to Sweden.

We at H&D, as nationalists, and I think we speak for 99% of other nationalists, are very pleased that Assange has been arrested and locked up. And whether it be in Sweden, the UK or the USA, we hope he spends the rest of his life behind bars.

Court orders BNP leaders to pay another £22,500

This morning in Court 57 of the Royal Courts of Justice, Nick Griffin and Simon Darby faced another costs hearing, resulting from their long running and disastrous attempt to bring civil actions against several former BNP officials – Kenny Smith, Nicholla Ritchie (now Mrs Smith), Steve Blake and Ian Dawson.

Griffin and Darby lost the first stages of this case as long ago as April 2008, lost the final stage in December 2010, and lost subsequent appeals. A few days ago Griffin was bankrupted in Welshpool County Court following an action by his own former solicitors, whom he had failed to pay.

Griffin and Darby were also of course ordered to pay the other side’s costs, and characteristically they have tried to drag out the process, tyring to avoid the bill for their hubris. A first instalment of £45,000 was eventually paid.

Today they were ordered to pay an additional instalment of £22,500 within 28 days.

Yet another costs hearing in the case is now scheduled for Friday 21st March. This is to allow the Official Receiver, who is now in charge of Nick Griffin’s affairs, to make representations if he so wishes. The total costs bill in this case is likely to be more than £130,000 (in addition to Griffin and Darby’s own costs).

Anyone considering making a donation to the British National Party should be aware that – contrary to Mr Griffin’s assertions – party funds are unlikely to be safe from Griffin and Darby’s creditors in this and other cases. Remember that today’s long running case (though the largest) is only one of several legal liabilities confronting Griffin and his party.

Nick Griffin did not turn up to court today, though Simon Darby and Clive Jefferson did. Surprisingly Heritage and Destiny was the only media organisation represented!

Trotskyist councillor caught up in far left turmoil: rape allegations against comrade

Poster displayed by militant feminists at Liverpool Hope University. H&D does not know and cannot verify the truth or falsehood of these allegations, but reports the ongoing dispute as a matter of public interest.

Britain’s most successful far left organisation – the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) – is falling apart because of rape allegations against one of its leaders, who had also been the key organiser of the ‘anti-racist’ campaigns Unite Against Fascism and Love Music Hate Racism.

Internal SWP reports refer to the accused party official only as Comrade Delta, but he has been widely identified by fellow leftists as Martin Smith, long serving national secretary of the party who was convicted in September 2010 of assaulting a police officer at an ‘anti-fascist’ demonstration against BNP leader Nick Griffin’s appearance on the BBC’s Question Time.  Detailed rape allegations dating back four or five years were made against Smith by a female SWP member.  She was 17 at the time: Smith was almost 50.

Smith’s colleagues on the party’s central committee held an enquiry chaired by the Manchester trade union activist Karen Reissman.  They voted 6-1 to dismiss the allegations, but the party membership was more evenly split, voting 231-209 in his facour.  Most importantly, many prominent activists were so disgusted by the SWP’s handling of the affair that they quit, and in some cases leaked important documents about the case to rival leftist factions.

A few months ago Smith bowed to the inevitable and resigned his party positions, though retaining the support of his cronies at the top of the SWP.  The latest twist in the case is that Smith has been awarded what (in today’s much cut back educational world) is a rare funded place to study for a doctorate at Liverpool Hope University.

Feminists and anti-rape campaigners in Liverpool are outraged, and have directed their anger not only at Smith but at his fellow SWP activist Michael Lavalette, who heads the social work department at the university.  Several left-wing blogs have alleged that Lavalette was involved in arranging his comrade’s placement at Liverpool Hope (formerly known as the Liverpool Institute of Higher Education).

Obviously we have no way of knowing the truth of these charges, but here at H&D we have encountered Lavalette many times.  He is a councillor on Preston City Council, one of the very few Trotskyists ever to enjoy electoral success, having defeated Labour three times in the heavily Asian ward known as Town Centre.

Who will win this titanic battle between Trotskyists and Feminists?  How will Cllr Lavalette’s many Muslim voters react, as they probably have little sympathy with either of these Western bourgeois ideologies?  Will Comrade Delta become Doctor Delta and win back his position in the vanguard of the revolution?

Only one thing remains certain: the SWP and its myriad far left rivals will continue to offer no hope for the betrayed workers of 21st century Britain.

The EDL and “anti-fascists”: hypocrisy and gangsterism

Stephen Garvey, EDL supporter arrested for conspiracy to murder two policewomen

Stephen Garvey, EDL supporter arrested for conspiracy to murder two policewomen

The brutal murder of two policewomen near Manchester has highlighted both the blight of drug-fuelled organised crime and the hypocrisy of two supposedly opposed political factions, the English Defence League and the “anti-fascist” movement.

The EDL’s effective deputy leader Kevin Carroll has just launched an election campaign for Police Commissioner of Bedfordshire, in what is by far the highest profile activity so far by the EDL’s political front, the British Freedom Party.  Mr Carroll’s manifesto for this Police Commissioner election contains all the usual law and order cliches, including “aggressively targeting hard drug dealing …to significantly reduce street robberies and other drug-related offences.”  He promises that “as Commissioner I will institute a crackdown on possession of knives and offensive weapons, so that parents need no longer worry for their children’s safety when they are out.”  Lest anyone think that his own criminal conviction might make him unsuitable for the job, Mr Carroll boasts that “my experience of liasing [sic] with police forces across Britain in organising public events has strengthened my admiration for their dedication and professionalism.”

An article promoting Mr Carroll’s campaign uses rather longer words than we have come to expect from the EDL, but includes one especially unfortunate cliche: We need to insist that people in positions of authority do not “shoot the messenger”.

One of Mr Carroll’s followers decided to shoot two policewomen instead.

EDL supporter and Manchester City football hooligan Stephen Garvey was arrested on September 19th for conspiracy to murder.  The previous day two policewomen – Constables Fiona Bone and Nicola Hughes – were lured to a home on the Hattersley estate, on the eastern fringe of Greater Manchester, where they faced a hail of gunfire and grenades.  Garvey’s friend and fellow gangster Dale Cregan has been arrested for the murders, as well as the earlier killings of two rival gangsters in the nearby areas of Droylsden and Clayton.

Garvey promoted the EDL on his Facebook page, and was involved in an EDL demonstration close to his home in Hyde on February 25th this year.  Kevin Carroll (now a Police Commissioner candidate) can be seen on this video speaking at the Hyde demonstration.

Some apologists for the EDL have already accused opponents of taking advantage of this EDL connection to gangland murder.  Yet the truth is that it is routine for EDL activists to be involved in violent crime.  Several of the EDL’s local organisers are career criminals, including drug dealers.  This is common knowledge to nationalists (including the present author) who have detailed knowledge of the serious crime problems blighting so many of our inner cities and council estates, and has been confirmed by retired police officers speaking to Heritage and Destiny on condition of anonymity.

Had genuine nationalist movements – even the BNP – had this sort of criminal in their ranks, the political wing of the police (i.e. Special Branch and other special intelligence units) would have targetted such people for heavy treatment, and the “anti-fascist” media would have exposed their every connection.

Yet the EDL has been given an easy ride.  For that matter the extraordinary ties between Paul Weston – leader of the EDL’s political wing – and an especially violent terrorist group based in Canada and the USA – the Jewish Defense League (JDL) – have been ignored by the mainstream media and the “ant-fascist” industry, despite being fully documented in a detailed article on this site.

Local sources suggest at present that Stephen Garvey was not a major player in the EDL – just an average grassroots supporter.  However this latest embarrassment is sure to cause further problems for Kevin Carroll’s Police Commissioner campaign, and raises more questions as to the long term viability of the British Freedom Party.

If the EDL is hypocritical about crime, what is one to make of the opportunistic article by Simon Cressy, of the Hope not Hate website (formerly Searchlight).  Mr Cressy highlighted the Daily Telegraph‘s revelation that “an EDL supporter has been arrested in relation to the murders of PC Nicola Hughes and PC Fiona Bone,” and we can expect him (or his associates) to make further capital from the affair when they discover Garvey’s involvement in the EDL’s Hyde demonstration.

Strangely “anti-fascists” are less keen to highlight their own close connections with notorious figures in Greater Manchester organised crime.  Coincidentally (or perhaps not) while the EDL gangsters and hooligans tend to support Manchester City (despite the club’s ownership by the Muslim ruling family of Abu Dhabi!), their “anti-fascist” opponents tend to be linked to the rival club Manchester United, and even produced an “anti-fascist” football fanzine, Red Attitude.

The most notorious “anti-fascist” gangsters in Greater Manchester were Salford’s Dessie Noonan, responsible for more than twenty gangland killings before his own murder in March 2005, and Manchester’s Paddy Logan, who like Noonan was involved with both Anti-Fascist Action and various Irish republican terrorist gangs before falling victim to an internal criminal feud, shot dead in his own bedroom in July 1999.

BNP activist cleared in court

LANCASHIRE EVENING POST, 21 June 2010: A BNP activist from Lancashire who wrote and distributed leaflets which blamed Muslims collectively for the heroin trade has been cleared of intending to incite religious hatred.

Tony BamberAnthony Bamber, 54, told a jury his intention was to create a debate about the “crime against humanity” that was the flow of the drug on to Britain’s streets.

He was responsible for heading a campaign which sent up to 30,000 of the leaflets by hand or post to targeted areas and individuals throughout the north of England over a 12-month period.

Bamber, of Greenbank Street, Preston pleaded not guilty to seven counts of distributing threatening written material intended to stir up religious hatred between March and November 2008. He was cleared by a jury at Preston Crown Court of all seven counts.

Representing himself, Bamber said there had been “no unpleasant incidents or social unrest” following the sending of the leaflets. Giving evidence last week, he explained they were targeted at educated professionals such as teachers, doctors, lawyers and clerics who were unlikely to take physical retribution against Muslims upon reading the literature. His aim was to create curiosity and interest which would then lead to a debate, he said.
