Ireland set to adopt new ‘hate crime’ law

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar – a strong supporter of the new hate crime law – with US President Joe Biden in April 2023

The Republic of Ireland’s parliament is about to pass a new law on ‘hate crime’ that will be among the most restrictive in Europe.

This will bring Ireland broadly into line with most European Union countries that already restrict historical investigation of aspects of the Second World War, notably the alleged mass murder of six million Jews in purported homicidal ‘gas chambers’.

Section 8 of the new law describes historical revisionism in similar terms to those used in many other debate-denying European laws that have been strengthened since the 1980s: “condoning, denying or grossly trivialising genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes against peace”.

Offences under this section will be punished by up to one year in prison. Moreover even possession of revisionist material will be criminalised under Section 10: courts will assume that an offender intended this material for distribution, and the burden of proof will be on a defendant to show otherwise.

The maximum sentence for such “possession” (which could be in printed or electronic format) will be two years imprisonment. There will be potential exemptions, including for material that can be shown to be of scholarly importance, but as elsewhere in Europe courts are likely to impose historical judgments that should normally be outside their competence.

In a direct attack on conservative Catholic traditions that were once the backbone of Irish society, the new law targets not only the usual categories of racial ‘hate crime’, but also offences against new, fashionable ‘protected characteristics’ involving gender and sexual orientation.

In short, it will be a ‘hate crime’ for anyone to fail to agree that a man who asserts he is a woman, has actually become a woman.

Almost all parties in the Dail, Dublin’s parliament, are supporting this Criminal Justice (Incitement to Violence or Hatred and Hate Offences) Bill. In Northern Ireland, only Traditional Unionist Voice has so far spoken out against the new law.

Jim Allister of TUV is the only political leader in Northern Ireland to have spoken out so far against the new ‘hate crime’ law expected to be enacted soon south of the border.

At H&D, we are unsurprised to see Irish politics going down this route. It has long been obvious that despite the persistent delusions of many Irish-Americans, Sinn Fein is fully on board with a toxic mix of Marxism and post-1968 leftist liberalism.

Dublin is increasingly multiracial, and its political culture is almost entirely ‘woke’.

Added to these toxic trends is a more fundamental problem. More than any other country in the world (except Israel), the Irish Republic is founded on a set of historical lies and distortions, reflected even in the absurdity of fake ‘Irish’ titles for Prime Minister (Taoiseach), Parliament (Dail) and many other party names and official positions.

Having forged their own identity on the basis of ‘victim’ imposture, Irish republicans now find themselves obliged to surrender to those who deploy stronger ‘victim cards’.

Home Secretary plays the ‘Holocaust’ card in migrant row

Home Secretary Suella Braverman has played the ‘Holocaust card’ in defending her immigration policies.

Home Secretary Suella Braverman has been the first to play the victim card in an ongoing row with the BBC over the UK government’s immigration policy.

Speaking to Nick Robinson’s podcast Political Thinking this morning, Braverman (who is herself a Buddhist of Goanese ancestry) said that she had been “personally offended” by the comments of Gary Lineker, the former England footballer who has been presenter of Match of the Day for more than twenty years.

Braverman added:
“My husband is Jewish, my children are therefore directly descendant from people who were murdered in gas chambers during the Holocaust. And my husband’s family is very – feels very – keenly the impact of the Holocaust, actually.”

Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker

Lineker, one of the highest-paid broadcasters in Britain, has repeatedly expressed politically-correct views on Twitter and recently criticised the government’s immigration policies. Replying to an opponent this week, Lineker tweeted:
“There is no huge influx. We take far fewer refugees than other major European countries.
“This is just an immeasurably cruel policy directed at the most vulnerable people in language that is not dissimilar to that used by Germany in the 30s, and I’m out of order?”

Predictably the row has degenerated into both sides playing the ‘nazi’ card, and Braverman clearly feels that her tangential connection to the ‘Holocaust’ gives her some advantage in the victim stakes.

Lineker’s comments were stupid and should be criticised for their foolishness, not because they might offend someone married to a Jew.

The underlying point of course is that St Gary is another symptom of the crude political correctness that can be expected from the football industry after several decades of relentless ‘anti-racist’ indoctrination.

Ron Atkinson – former manager of West Brom, Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, and Aston Villa – is among several well-known broadcasters whose careers were swfitly ended because of politically incorrect comments (in Atkinson’s case made in private).

In earlier generations, ‘racism’ when expressed by people within football was inevitably crudified, and so is ‘anti-racism’. No big deal either way, and not grounds for sacking – provided that (within reason) football commentators are also allowed to express anti-immigration sentiments. Provided it is not obligatory to kneel in memory of black criminal George Floyd, and provided it is permissible for BBC broadcasters to assert that White Lives Matter, none of us should be too worried about Lineker and his ilk expressing their opinions.

The problem is that only one side of the political fence is considered acceptable.

Perhaps the case should be put to Mr Lineker in those terms, and that would I think silence him rather more effectively than attempts at straightforward censorship!

Tony Blair’s favourite oligarch hit by sanctions: ex-PM and ‘Holocaust’ lobby under scrutiny

Moshe Kantor hosting a conference in Terezin, Czech Republic, where he demanded that laws against ‘Holocaust denial’ be extended across Europe

As far back as 27th February H&D raised questions about former Prime Minister Tony Blair and his favourite oligarch Moshe Kantor, a close friend of both the ex-Labour leader and the Kremlin godfather Vladimir Putin.

We pointed out that since 2015 Blair has been chairman of Kantor’s ‘European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation’, which campaigns for ‘tougher laws against extremism’.

Naturally the extremism Blair and Kantor wish to criminalise involves such things as publishing a magazine or running a bookshop. For this type of extremism the likes of Blair and Kantor endorse the approach of Spanish prosecutors, who wish to jail Pedro Varela for twelve years, or German prosecutors who wish again to jail the 93-year-old Ursula Haverbeck, or German border guards who defy their own laws and their country’s obligations under the European constitution to deport the 19-year-old student Isabel Peralta.

Invading a neighbouring country is, by contrast, not ‘extreme’: not if the invader is Moshe Kantor’s close friend Vladimir Putin.

Moshe Kantor has founded and sponsored Jewish lobby groups and ‘academic’ foundations around the world: he is now under sanctions for his ties to the Kremlin’s campaign of propaganda lies and brutal aggression against its neighbours

Yesterday – more than five weeks after we raised these questions – the British authorities belatedly acted against Kantor, adding him to their sanctions list.

Kantor’s many leading positions in international Jewry and Zionism include President of the European Jewish Council; Vice President of the UK’s Jewish Leadership Council (a registered charity); Chairman of the Policy Council of the World Jewish Congress; and President of the World Holocaust Forum Foundation.

In many of these roles he has worked closely with Tony Blair, who was one of the most pro-Israel Prime Ministers in UK history.

In 2015 Kantor organised a conference in the Czech Republic where he called on European governments including the UK to adopted standardised laws criminalising ‘Holocaust denial’. Defying the views of scholars and legal experts who wish to repeal these ‘historical memory laws’ that jail people for their opinions, Kantor wanted to make the laws stricter and the punishments harsher.

Tony Blair joined Kantor in promoting these arguments and demands for legal crackdowns on opinion-crime, via a major article in The Times newspaper.

The main vehicle for demanding these new debate-denial laws was the ironically named European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation, with Kantor as President and paymaster, and Tony Blair as chairman.

Now Kantor himself is facing legal sanctions – not for opinions, but for his documented ties to the Kremlin’s war machine and lie machine.

It is now beyond dispute that for the past twenty years or more, Vladimir Putin has used Holocaust propaganda as an instrument of Russian diplomacy and as a justification for Russian military aggression.

Now is the time to ask the forbidden questions. Whatever European courts might say, it’s time to demand historical truth.

Back in 2007 – in a letter prominently published in a national newspaperH&D‘s Peter Rushton discussed the way that Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir had used Holocaust propaganda to pressure US governments into allowing Israel to get away with nuclear proliferation. His letter ended: “Should a self-interested version of 1940s history be allowed to dictate the nuclear power politics of the 21st century, with potentially disastrous consequences?”

In 2022 the same question becomes more urgent, and we can no longer allow the risk of prosecution in many European countries to silence that question.

In 2015 Tony Blair and Moshe Kantor demanded new laws to crack down on ‘antisemites’ and ‘Holocaust deniers’.

Therefore this week H&D will launch a new website section – Real History and the True Europe – in which over the coming months we shall ask the important questions about Europe’s history and culture, including the ‘Holocaust’.

On this website, in our magazine, and in a book to be published later this year – The Dogs That Didn’t Bark: British Intelligence, International Jewry and the Holocaust (the first of a series examining aspects of Britain’s secret history with the aid of new archival discoveries) – we will examine whether, just as Moshe Kantor and Vladimir Putin have exploited ‘Holocaust’ stories for propagandist purposes, other official and unofficial propaganda agencies were behind parts of the original ‘Holocaust’ narrative in the 1940s.

We shall re-examine the work of revisionist scholars including the late Professor Robert Faurisson, including work newly available in English translation.

We shall have interviews and court reports from across Europe, as politically biased judges seek to jail nonagenarians for ‘criminal’ opinions.

And we shall reveal other political abuses of the judicial system, where a new generation of European political activist is threatened with prosecution to distract from government treachery and failure to enforce immigration laws.

This online project and publishing venture will look at many other topics besides the ‘Holocaust’, but we shall not be afraid to challenge the establishment consensus. Europe is again at war. Historical and political truth is too important for us to tolerate its restriction by the courts.

British historian condemns ‘moronic’ wokeness of US National Archives

British historian Andrew Roberts has ridiculed the US National Archives for its latest display of wokeness, after Washington officials placed a ‘trigger warning’ notice next to its historic copy of the 1776 Declaration of Independence.

‘Trigger warnings’ and ‘safe spaces’ have become commonplace in academic and public institutions in recent years as wokeness has taken over. The idea is that minority groups (or just people with ultra-woke ideas) might be offended by any contact with people or writings that convey different ideas, even in a historical context.

As Roberts (biographer of the wartime British Ambassador to Washington, Lord Halifax, and more recently of King George III against whom the Declaration was written) pointed out last weekend to an audience at the Oxford Literary Festival: “Anyone who thinks an 18th century document is not going to be outdated, biased and offensive is frankly a moron. When you go to see the Declaration, you read what it says about Native Americans and so on, you won’t be so offended that you can’t stand up.”

The really interesting thing about this row is what it tells us about American notions of ‘freedom’ and ‘equality’. While liberals like to parrot the Declaration’s phrases about “all men” being “created equal” with “inalienable rights”, they ignore that in practice this meant White men.

The rotunda of the US National Archives in Washington, where the Declaration of Independence – and now the absurd ‘trigger warning’ – are displayed

Hence the words that are now found objectionable, where the Declaration complains that King George:
“has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.”

Rather than focus their complaint on the word “savages”, the woke brigade might do better to reflect on what this tells us about American values than and now, and about the broader values of liberalism.

Red Indians – now known as Native Americans – supported the British Crown because they knew that the Empire offered them a better deal than they would get under liberal capitalism. The same applied half a century later to the British working-class, exploited as footsoldiers by the liberal middle-class in their campaign for ‘reform’, but then left worse off then ever under the ‘free’ capitalism of early and mid-Victorian England.

As for ‘racism’, Americans might find it uncomfortable to reflect on the fact that their famous Olympic athlete Jesse Owens was treated far better by Adolf Hitler in national-socialist Berlin in 1936 than he was by his fellow Americans!

And the American “rule of warfare” – despite the implication of their own Declaration of Independence, has turned out to be truly destructive “of all ages, sexes and conditions”, from Dresden to Hiroshima to Baghdad.

What this ridiculous fuss about ‘trigger warnings’ really tells us is that it is absurd to try to force history into our 21st century preconceptions. In Washington this absurdity takes the form of placing warning notices next to the Declaration of Independence, in modern Germany it takes the form of locking up 93-year-old Ursula Haverbeck for expressing forbidden historical opinions and daring to ask forbidden questions.

Jewish lobby seeks to censor BBC

Lady Mosley pictured on the front cover of society magazine The Tatler, December 1938. Now – nineteen years after her death – Lady Mosley remains the target of a vengeful Jewish lobby.

Desert Island Discs is one of the longest-running radio series in the world, having recently celebrated 80 years on the air since its first broadcast in January 1942. As all British readers will know, the programme features a different guest each week who is asked to select eight records, one book, and one ‘luxury item’ they would choose if ‘cast away’ on a desert island in the manner of Robinson Crusoe.

More than 2,300 episodes are now available on the BBC website, but last weekend the Sunday Telegraph focused on just one of them: broadcast in November 1989 when the ‘castaway’ was Lady Mosley (the former Diana Mitford), widow of British fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley.

This theoretically conservative newspaper seems to have joined forces with the Anglo-Jewish lobby to complain that the Mosley episode of Desert Island Discs is freely available for today’s listeners without any “introductory warnings that it may contain material of an offensive nature”.

Government ‘anti-semitism’ adviser Lord Mann told the paper: “It would be appropriate to put a warning in relation to this broadcast and the holocaust denial that is spewed out by Mosley.”

And Dave Rich from the Jewish lobby group Community Security Trust kvetched that Lady Mosley’s “anti-Jewish animus and her admiration for Hitler shine through. Most objectionable of all is her denial that six million Jews were murdered by the Nazis. The whole package could not be more repulsive. There is no mention of any of this in the blurb that promotes the episode on the BBC Sounds website.”

Rich’s organisation CST was founded and is chaired by Gerald Ronson, a veteran of the violent Jewish ‘anti-fascist’ 62 Group, some of whose history will be exposed in a forthcoming two-part review article in Heritage and Destiny Issues 107 and 108.

There is no law against ‘holocaust denial’ in the UK and the problem seems to be simply that Lady Mosley attempted to give truthful answers to questions about her attitude to the Third Reich. Speaking of Adolf Hitler she said: “He had so much to say, so interesting, so fascinating… I can’t regret the relationship.”

And when pressed about the ‘Holocaust’ she replied: “First of all, after the war, I simply didn’t believe it, having been in Germany … And it was years before I could really believe that such things had happened.”

Pressed further as to whether she now believed in the extermination stories, she replied: “I don’t really, I’m
afraid … believe that six million people were … I just think it’s not conceivable, it’s too many.”

For today’s fanatical Zionist censors, even this now classes as ‘Holocaust denial’. Just what are they afraid of? H&D readers will soon find out…

Government adviser targeted in fake ‘racism’ storm

Paul Collier

The distinguished economist Sir Paul Collier is today at the centre of a fierce row over his views on race and immigration, following his appointment to an advisory council that will guide the British government’s “levelling up” agenda.

The Conservative Party’s election victory in December 2019 was partly based on convincing former Labour voters that the Tories were now serious about tackling social inequalities and lack of opportunity. Senior minister Michael Gove has been given charge of this agenda, and this week Gove confirmed that advisory council members “such as Sir Paul Collier, renowned economist at Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government, [would be ] providing further support and constructive analysis.”

Woke commentators and the race relations industry today rounded on Sir Paul, condemning his comments that “the indigenous British had become a minority in their own capital”, and his critique of the “easy-access welfare system, which tempts migrants into remaining at the bottom of the social ladder”.

One of Sir Paul’s sins was in the video below, where he dared to ask: “Is London such a great success for the indigenous population? Something rather drastic has happened to the indigenous population in London … I can think of no other major city where the indigenous population has more than halved.”

Other European capitals are set to follow London’s lead, with equally disastrous consequences, if Europe remains dominated by the socially destructive ideology of ‘free market capitalism’.

It is ironic that the so-called left – in their blind devotion to this ‘free market’ – are lining up to condemn Sir Paul Collier. Yet further evidence that radical nationalists should take over the ‘socialist’ agenda and defend the interests of indigenous European workers.

Whoopi loses the victim contest

Whoopi Goldberg

The George Floyd case and associated ‘Black Lives Matter’ circus convinced many negroes that they were history’s ultimate victims.

After all, if White people across the civilised world are kneeling in homage to a dead criminal, solely because he happened to be black, then surely there can be no doubt who are the masters now?

But actress Whoopi Goldberg has just discovered that however strong the black victim card, there’s another victim card that trumps it every time.

Speaking on a popular US television show The View, Ms Goldberg committed a cardinal sin against the holy ghosts of Holocaustianity. In a rambling commentary that H&D cannot pretend to understand, Ms Goldberg told viewers:

“Let’s be truthful, the Holocaust isn’t about race, it’s not.

“It’s about man’s inhumanity to man, that’s what it’s about. These are two groups of white people…you’re missing the point… let’s talk about it for what it really is. It’s about how people treat each other.

“It’s a problem. It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, Jews…everybody eats each other.”

Perhaps in parts of Africa everybody does still eat each other, but American Jewish groups were quick to demand action against Ms Goldberg, who was duly forced to apologise unreservedly and was suspended by ABC television for two weeks.

Some H&D readers might have imagined that Whoopi Goldberg is herself (like the late entertainer Sammy Davis Jr.) part-Jewish. But on investigation we discover that the name ‘Goldberg’ – like so much of negro culture and heritage – is pure invention. Ms Goldberg was born Caryn Elaine Johnson and has not a single drop of traceable Jewish ancestry.

So for all her years of ‘stardom’, Ms Goldberg has learned the hard way that in the USA some lives matter a lot more than black lives.

Spain maintains ‘blackface’ tradition despite PC ‘outrage’

Later this week a seasonal tradition will be maintained in Spain despite politically correct ‘outrage’.

This is the ‘Three Kings’ festival associated with the Christian Feast of Epiphany and the biblical story of the three Magi – often referred to as ‘kings’ or ‘wise men’ who travelled to visit the baby Jesus.

Across Spain colourful parades will be held, followed by feasting and the opening of presents.

At each of these parades, Spaniards will dress up as the Three Kings – Melchior, Caspar and Balthasar.

And the woke problem is that traditionally Balthasar has been represented as a negro, so those playing his part wear ‘blackface’, now regarded as ‘racist’.

This traditional identification of Balthasar as black dates back to one of the first English historians, the Northumbrian monk Bede who died in 735. Bede identified the Three Kings as representatives of the three sons of Noah – in other words the forefathers of the three racial groups that populated Europe, Asia and Africa.

‘Blackface’ traditions in the English Morris Dancing tradition have been under attack

H&D readers will quickly perceive how all of this creates problems in the politically correct 21st century!

The good news is that so far Spain has resisted pressure to abandon their traditions in the name of political correctness. If only our own English traditions had been so steadfastly defended.

Unfortunately, similar traditions in England have been abandoned in recent years. For example just last week the Silurian Border Morrismen changed their Boxing Day tradition and for the first time painted their faces green rather than black. This is just the latest example of an attack on English traditions, that has particularly targeted Morris men.

But to end on a positive note, as we are still celebrating the New Year holiday – head over to our new Instagram account to see a newly subtitled version of the great nationalist song Cara al Sol (‘Facing the Sun’) especially appropriate for this time of year as having bid farewell to the old year, we hail the new year in optimistic spirit.

Police state cracks down on Patriotic Alternative

Sam Melia, Yorkshire regional organiser of Patriotic Alternative, was arrested on Wednesday under Britain’s notorious race laws and questioned for five hours.

Laura Towler and Sam Melia of Patriotic Alternative

Mr Melia and his wife – PA deputy leader Laura Towler – had their computers and phones seized.

While H&D would not normally comment on an ongoing police investigation, we can say with some confidence in this instance that Mr Melia is being persecuted for material that is well within the normal definitions of sensible, legal, racial nationalist politics.

This is emphatically not an example of lunatic fringe behaviour, as has been the case with some recent ‘political’ convictions.

Dr Jim Lewthwaite speaking at the 2017 John Tyndall Memorial Meeting, organised by H&D

While we are to some extent restricted in what we can report about this case, we are pleased to note that the heavy-handed police actions have not deterred PA from supporting the election campaign of H&D patron Dr Jim Lewthwaite, British Democratic Party candidate for Wyke ward, Bradford City Council.

Best of luck to Sam, Laura, Jim and all the activist teams working this weekend!

Traditional Aussie ‘sledging’ causes new fake ‘racism’ row

Indian cricketer Mohammed Siraj complains to the umpire about ‘racist’ abuse from the Sydney crowd this week.

Generations of cricketers have experienced the unique pleasures of touring Australia.

Among these pleasures is to experience a stream of banter, often skirting or crossing the borderline of obscene abuse, when fielding anywhere within shouting distance of the crowd!

Historically some of the ripest language would come from particular sections of Australian grounds where, shall we say, the less refined spectators were concentrated – among them “The Hill” area of the Sydney Cricket Ground, and Bay 13 at Melbourne – both of which were redesigned so as to spread traditionally raucous elements more evenly.

In the early 20th century one famous barracker was nicknamed ‘Yabba’: he has since been immortalised in a bronze statue at the Sydney ground.

An example of Yabba’s humour was directed at a nervous visiting batsman who had played and missed many times, but just about survived. Between overs this batsman put his hand down his trousers to adjust his protective ‘box’, only for Yabba to shout: “Those are the only balls you’ve touched all day!”

The legendary Sydney sledger ‘Yabba’, now immortalised in bronze

Yet at the same time Australian crowds have been quick to applaud outstanding displays by visiting cricketers, just as they will spot a weak or easily distracted opponent and mercilessly taunt him.

Sadly this Australian tradition has now fallen foul of the race police.

In this week’s third Test between Australia and India at Sydney, New South Wales police were called in to investigate complaints of ‘racism’ levelled at the Aussie crowd by Indian fielder Mohammed Siraj.

Spectator Rishi Aryan told the Sydney Morning Herald that the issue had been greatly exaggerated:
“All these boys were doing is a bit of sledging of the player on the outfield.

“First it was (Jasprit) Bumrah then they had a sledge against Siraj. They kept calling him Shiraz and all that crap. Next thing you know they said: ‘Welcome to Sydney, Siraj’ and then he got the shits.

“That was literally it. Then he walked off. I don’t know why (the police kicked the men out). Next thing you know you see police everywhere.

“It didn’t make sense. It was confusing.”

Of course it didn’t make sense – it’s yet another example of the race police using any excuse to step in. Had a balding player, or an overweight player been taunted, there wouldn’t be any fuss – and there seems no evidence of racial epithets.

The bottom line is that Siraj is playing only his second ever Test match: the crowd thought they could exploit this inexperience and wind him up. This has always been part of the game, and the only answer is to grow up and pay back the opposing crowd by winning the match for your team: that way you will also win the crowd’s (perhaps reluctant) respect.
