Successful Pan-Nationalist Day of Action in Leeds

The Holiday Inn at Garforth, Yorkshire

On Saturday 18th September a joint nationalist day of action was held in Yorkshire’s biggest city – Leeds –  with activists from both the British Movement and Patriotic Alternative, holding a number of flash demonstrations against the flood of immigrants – mainly young male so-called asylum seekers and refugees into the city.

A number of big hotels in Leeds have simply closed their doors to the great British public, and given themselves completely over to economic migrants. Then news reached the local BM branch, that a number of other hotels in the city had been “commandeered” by the Home Office for exclusive use by Afghans (as has happened in other cities all over England).

The hotels in Leeds included the Holiday Inn at Garforth; the Gateway Hotel in Micklefield and the Mercury Hotel in Bramham. The Holiday Inn, has now cancelled all “normal” bookings until December 9th, in the hope that the local council will have rehoused the migrants by then, so they can re-open for the lucrative pre Christmas trade.

This was the second successful day of action organised by Leeds BM at very short notice – the first on August 7th, was reported in the “Movement News” pages of H&D #104 (September-October 2021) which was published earlier this month. The day included leafleting and noisy flash demonstrations outside a couple of the hotels mentioned above, and short speeches by BM and PA representatives.

Congratulations to everybody (including a number of H&D subscribers) who attended the pan-nationalist day of action in Leeds. It is hoped that more such demonstrations will now take place in other parts of the country.

Creators Harassed by Political Police in Merseyside

James Mac, a good friend of H&D was recently arrested, in Kirkby (Knowsley) by Merseyside’s political police, because a pro-White pride sticker appeared in his local area, and taken to Copy Lane Police Station in Bootle (just outside of Liverpool).

James is an activist with the Creativity Movement UK. Creativity is promoted by two organizations: the Creativity Alliance (CA), also known as the Church of Creativity, and The Creativity Movement. The groups have common origins, both being created in 2003 after Matt Hale, successor to Ben Klassen (who founded The Church of the Creator in 1973) was arrested and sentenced to forty years in prison in the USA.  Matt Hale had renamed the organisation “New Church of the Creator”: H&D has reviewed a number of his books in the past.

Here is the report James kindly sent us.

‘The police have finally caught up with me,’ I often joke to family, as a pro-White activist in an area where coppers often speed past, sirens blurring. On August 25th, it wasn’t a joke anymore.

After a morning jog, I arrived home to find police riot vans at the door. I was arrested under the Orwellian ‘crime’ of ‘inciting racial hatred’. A sticker had been discovered on a bus stop. The egregious message? ‘Proud to be White? Contact like-minded people’. I was the alleged ‘perpetrator’.

One of the stickers for which James Mac was arrested

In came a dozen or more mask wearing, taser wielding coppers, ready to do a thorough job on my house, looking for ‘incriminating evidence’. They would certainly find evidence of Racial Loyalty. Meanwhile, a screeching female copper began ranting about a ‘Creativity Agenda!’ It sounded like a term coined by the enemy, eager to demonise. I was not eager to acknowledge it.

Adherents to Creativity have been spreading the good word across Britain for many years. The controlled, virulently anti-White media grudgingly acknowledge the legality of our promotional materials. Why this drama and why now? It will be interesting to find out.

A surreal experience that could only make one enquire to the arresting officer, isn’t this a bit excessive? After a proper declutter job, including the confiscation (theft?) of promotional materials and electronic devices, I was carted off to the police station.

‘All these vans just for me?’ 
‘Yes, and an unmarked car, too.’

Booked in at the station, I got the old fingerprint and mugshot treatment, then carted off to the cells. All very surreal. 
‘Wow, this is really happening.’

How could you not find comedy in it all? This heavy handed treatment, for what? An alleged sticker ‘offence’? With a pro-White message? What is the aim? To make you regret ever being pro-White? It is enough to leave you in a fit of giggles.

I took the opportunity to rest. There was no getting sleep with so much adrenaline. ‘Just lay down and close your eyes.’

After a couple of hours I was introduced to a duty solicitor. I made it clear: everything I ever do, say or support I am happy to defend in court. However, today, it was NO COMMENT. The solicitor’s one task: remind me not to play the fool and get drawn into engaging with these people.

Copy Lane police station, where James Mac was taken to be questioned after his recent arrest

Into the interview room, I was questioned by the two arresting officers. They had been doing a bit of research, invading my privacy, checking bank accounts, etc.

I am a passionate adherent to my religious faith, Creativity. I was subjected to ridicule by the dishevelled Copper A, who repeatedly mocked my sincerely held faith.

‘…the SO-CALLED religion of Creativity.’  I found this highly offensive and super intolerant.

I stuck to my guns of ‘No Comment’. However, in retrospect perhaps I should have utilised the duty solicitor and requested to have the aforementioned obnoxious behaviour corrected.

Better groomed Copper B said this was a chance to tell my side of the story. He proceeded to comment on my shoe purchases, which are of good quality and ethically made.

‘Very nice shoes, James. What’s that all about? Do you think only White people wear shoes like that?’

I chuckled to myself and rolled my eyes. How embarrassing. We are supposed to believe these people are fair and balanced?

The coppers try to make you feel small. They are the headmaster and you are the naughty pupil. My religious conviction is strong and unbending. I did not feel like the inferior party. Just the opposite. I am certain of my morally superior position. Be they activists with sinister motives or normal people ‘just doing their job,’ before me were agents of the forces of darkness.

The interview was over sooner than I expected. At my home these people demanded passwords to electronic devices, threatening legal repercussions. I expect the officers to press for them. Strangely, they did not. I discovered I had no such legal obligation. Not unless the warrant states it, which it did not.

Once released I jogged home. Family members were present in support. What is this alleged ‘horrendous crime’ that caused so many military style vehicles to screech up to my door? they enquired. When news broke the whole episode was because of a sticker asking a self-respecting White person if they are proud of their biological heritage, there was a lot of rage. There was much frothing at the mouth and cursing.

Another of the stickers for which James Mac was arrested

The police are not popular. For all their research, evidently they were ignorant of my popularity. Perhaps they liked the idea of ‘exposing me’ and making me a social outcast, but unfortunately I am a family favourite. The one elderly relative who I suspected may give me a telling off instead said ‘You are the only one brave enough to say what the rest of us think!’ Oh well.

The crazy incident has become my perfect ice breaker. Neighbours come with grievances about the current state of affairs. Friends and acquaintances rage against the police and compare them to a notoriously ‘non-kosher’ farm animal.

The hypocrisy of the police is not lost on the average White person. The ‘Black Lives Matter’ rubbish has these coppers literally GROVELLING ON THEIR KNEES. You do not need to explain. No need to spoon feed. They figure it out all by themselves.

The reputation of the police is in the sewer. Frankly, I have no sympathy. Give them the benefit of the doubt and they surpass themselves with disgraceful behaviour.

I have found the whole state harassment experience reinvigorating. If the sinister forces were aiming to intimidate and have me scurrying for cover, they are mistaken.

I am bursting with enthusiasm for Creativity. I am eager to talk to as many people as possible about my experience and my abiding passion for White people.

H&D Correspondent – Simon Sheppard – arrested and jailed (again)

Longstanding Yorkshire nationalist and H&D correspondent Simon Sheppard (who hosts the controversial www.heretical.com website) has been arrested again and remanded in custody at HMP Hull on suspicion of breaching the five-year Criminal Behaviour Order imposed upon him in 2018, at the time of his last conviction.

Details are sketchy at the moment, but it seems he was handing out politically incorrect flyers and/or cards in the Bridlington area, which someone took offense to. They called the Police, and he was arrested. So much for our “free and democratic society”!

If H&D readers wish to send Simon a letter of support, this is his new address:

SHEPPARD A3809ER: Wing H, HMP Hull, Hedon Road, Hull, HU9 5LS.

Please remember that prisoners’ incoming mail is opened by prison staff, and most of it is routinely photocopied – so please keep messages sensible and avoid anything provocative. Also please note that you can no longer send inmates postal orders – this was stopped due to Covid – all monies sent to an inmate must now be done online.

Simon Sheppard addressing an H&D event

Prison visits are suspended indefinitely at HMP Hull due to the Covid panic, so inmates are in lockdown for 23 hours a day. The Governor has the discretion to carry on with FULL Covid restrictions (even for inmates on remand who have yet to be found guilty of anything – like Simon).

As far as we are aware even his legal team cannot visit him, and all communications have to be done by video link.

Simon is due in Hull Crown Court on October 8th, as it’s all been expedited, but as it’s only the first appearance, it will presumably only last a few minutes; – “name, age, address, prison number etc.” He will then return to Crown court in December for allegedly breaching his criminal behaviour order.

H&D readers wishing to send Simon some money so he can buy bits and bobs from the Prison Shop (as he has nothing at all in there) can send it c/o H&D if they so wish. Please make cheques or postal/money orders out to “Heritage and Destiny” – but please write clearly on the back of the cheque (or PO) that it is for Simon Sheppard. Readers can also send their donations by Bank Transfer (BACs) if they so wish to –

Account name – Heritage and Destiny,

Account number – 14144034,

Sort code – 01 00 85: –

Use your own name and the words Sheppard Donation as reference.

Simon’s most recent article, titled – “I WAS BLIND BUT NOW I SEE” Where he explains ‘Gaslighting’ and gives his “parable of the Honey Pops”, which was published in issue #104 of Heritage and Destiny magazine, can be read here.

I Was Blind But Now I See

Simon Sheppard explains gaslighting and gives his Parable of the Honey Pops

Sometimes, due to misdiagnosis or an advance in medicine, people who have been born blind or lost their sight at a very early age can suddenly regain their sight. When this happens they face another obstacle – they don’t know how to see. The condition is known as agnosia, the inability to interpret sensory input. Their brains are at once bombarded with rich visual data which they haven’t learned how to decipher. This can lead to disorientation, depression and even thoughts of suicide.

Such individuals find themselves falling back on the senses they can process, such as hearing and touch, and use them as a reference to make sense of the complex patterns their brain is receiving from their newly functioning eyes.

Optical illusions have been mentioned previously in this context – that they occur because guesses and approximations can be made much more rapidly and efficiently, and work most of the time. Distortions arise because the overhead to process for perfect accuracy is so high. Optical illusions are instances when the guesses our brains make about what is being observed do not align with reality.

This discussion of cognitive functions is a step further and beyond, because these visual misinterpretations give important clues about how our brains work. Individuals with recently restored sight report that when people move away from them, they appear to shrink in size. 

Streetlights look like luminous stains on a window pane. Actually, they may be seeing accurately, while normal sight compensates for this. Depth perception is evidently learned, and this automatic adjustment in perspective gives rise to a whole class of optical illusions.

A hallucination engine

It’s said that we have five senses, but actually there are more – our sense of balance for one, and proprioception, the awareness we have of where parts of our body are. It’s this which gives us the ability to touch the tip of our nose with our eyes closed, and not have to take deliberate aim when we put a spoon to our mouth. There are sensory cells within the muscles.

We can think of the brain as being more than anything else a hallucination engine. The mass of neurons and their interconnections which is encased in the cranium cannot see, hear, touch or smell. Rather, various appendages containing sensory neurons – neurons of a different kind – convert stimuli into electrical impulses via synapses which the neurons in the brain receive. How does the brain interpret those signals? That is the question.

What seems to happen is that the brain receives signals and then imagines (hallucinates) to fix upon the most likely scenario based on prior information.

Some psychotropic drugs dramatically increase hallucination, notably LSD. In this model of how the brain operates, this drug causes the brain to race with its limiter off, so to speak. There are anecdotal reports that a similar effect occurs to a much lesser extent with marijuana, that it “opens a valve,” possibly in the frontal cortex, which normally inhibits the flow of certain thoughts. Hence under the influence of marijuana, wacky and sometimes obtuse and novel ideas can emerge, but also, perhaps, memories which would be best forgotten.

The scientific rabbit

As with vision, error-free exactitude would be intensive, slow and certainly not evolutionarily advantageous in a harsh natural environment in which hungry predators lurk. My favourite example is of a hypothetical chance mutation of rabbit. This rabbit was born with a scientific bent, and reaching maturity it embarked upon an experiment which involved sitting atop a crest with a clipboard between its paws. Its object was to measure how many rustles in the grass below were just rustles and how many were actually a fox. Of course the rabbit became a fox’s dinner well before the experiment was concluded.

This illustrates the circumstance when there is little or no evolutionary advantage in being precisely accurate. Rabbits just assume that a rustle in the grass is a predator. There is no advantage in reacting otherwise.

Women’s natural traits

Incidentally, a similar argument can be made regarding women’s reliance on their feelings, in other words instinctive emotion. Going back many hundreds of thousands of years, women were not selected as mates for their capacity for rational, analytical thought. Their charms lay elsewhere, and whatever advantage this feature confers for them was dwarfed by other factors.

A stronger argument exists for women having a sense of humour. A man with a sense of humour has a reproductive advantage, being better able to amuse and woo a prospective mate, his ability to charm increasing the number of progeny he is likely to have. Similarly, a woman with a sense of humour would be fun to have around, and more desirable as a long-term mate. However, we can look to the mediocre “safe humour” of female comedians, and the humourlessness of a feminized society in general, to see how that turned out.

Regular readers will know that I have come to have doubts about evolution theory, but as a working hypothesis, it works. I don’t want to be adding “putative” to every other sentence.

Mesmerised by Tampax

There is a story which I’ve told in personal conversation many times which bears repeating here. On my release from my long sentence for the Tales of the Holohoax comic book I was obliged to stay in an all-male bail hostel for many months, a record stay, but I was deemed a “high security risk.” One day, bored, and unusually, I was sitting in front of the communal TV watching some rubbish or other. The protocol was that the first person there held the remote control, and my habit was to mute the sound during advertisement breaks. One came on, and when I hit the mute button, a young man now sitting at my side complained. Moreover, I had muted the soundtrack of an advertisement for Tampax.

Why had be complained? By silencing the TV I had interrupted his hypnosis, his suspension of thought, and his brain was forced to awaken from its comfortable, passive and practically comatose state. The brain consumes quite a lot of energy; his had to think, to work.

Windrush Empire

The term gaslighting derives from a 1940 British film which was itself based on a play by Patrick Hamilton. It was remade in a more dramatic Hollywood version in 1944. The wife, played in the later film by Ingrid Bergman, is tricked into disbelieving her own memories and perceptions, and into believing that she is going insane. In popular use today, the term has been summarised as the media attitude, ‘Don’t believe your lying eyes, believe us.’

The ‘Windrush affair’ shall be cited as a specific instance of what people mean today by ‘gaslighting.’ I’m told that the media is still going on about it now, but the coverage was intense during several weeks in 2018. Gross media amplification took place, with hours of TV commentary and thousands of words in newspaper columns. Something under two hundred people, possibly fewer than a hundred, who arrived in Britain in the years after World War II, were returned to their ancestral homeland. Putting this in context, the non-white population of England and Wales is now well over six million.

According to the orthodox media it was a “Windrush scandal” and a “deportation crisis” and the waves of puff and bluster led to a ministerial resignation. It’s hardly necessary to add that certain very pertinent facts were never mentioned. It’s also safe to assume that no reference was ever made to the policies which nationalists advocate as being in the best interests of the British people.

Who would imagine, amid all the hand-wringing and recriminations over a few score Jamaicans “wrongfully repatriated,” that all of it (and much else) directly followed from the collusion of a ‘Jewish Cousinhood’ decades previously? The background to the Empire Windrush was very ably documented by “Andrew Joyce” in a article for the Occidental Observer website (www.theoccidentalobserver.net) in 2015. Who, immersed in the mainstream narrative, could ever conceive the real origin of the affair? Without the superb work of people like Joyce (not his real name by the way), we would be even deeper in the dark than we are.

The Parable of the Honey Pops

Suppose, as a sort of parable, that I always ate cornflakes for breakfast. I had only vaguely heard of Honey Pops, indeed they were a distant land to me. One day I go to the supermarket to buy cornflakes and milk as usual and find that Honey Pops are on Super Special Offer, only a fraction of their normal price and less than the cornflakes I was intending to buy. So, thinks I, I’ll give them a try.

These Honey Pops are great! So tasty are they that I stop buying cornflakes altogether, and even better, this Super Special Offer seems to be lasting an awfully long time. There must be a world-wide glut of Pops or something. Anyway, I don’t care about that, Honey Pops are very nice, and it gets to the point where I simply can’t imagine eating anything other than Honey Pops for breakfast.

Finally one fateful day I go to the supermarket and the Super Special Offer has been withdrawn! Now Honey Pops are more than twice the price of cornflakes. It isn’t fair I say, and demand that I be allowed to buy Honey Pops under the previous terms. Moreover the manager of the supermarket backs me up, wanting to continue his brisk trade in Honey Pops, and he agrees that after all this time the manufacturer has no right to demand the full price. Somehow he persuades the Honey Pops’ manufacturer to extend the Super Special Offer indefinitely so I can continue to enjoy Honey Pops for breakfast every morning.

The fact that the Super Special Offer only arose in extraordinary circumstances and that the manufacturer of Honey Pops is now operating at a loss is irrelevant to me. My enjoyment of Honey Pops in the morning is all that matters.

Of course eventually the supply of Honey Pops comes to an end, because no business can operate at a loss forever. Nothing can persist when output exceeds input. Which, cutting to the quick, is just about where we are now.

Propaganda media

I have always been a bit of a maverick, probably chiefly due to my troubled upbringing. Even so, I have to confess that I was fully gaslit up until about 1992, at which time I was a squatter in the centre of Amsterdam doing experiments on girls. It was my experimental results which woke me to the truth. Once I realised the huge lie of “sexual equality,” that males and females are the same save for a few reproductive features, it was a logical step to question what else is thoroughly misrepresented in the received narrative. As it turns out, practically everything.

The cabal that controls the media has the ability to create myths, romanticise and religify. In short, they play on our emotions in a manner and to a degree which is unprecedented in history. They can, indeed have, created a fantasy world which seems superficially attractive but is really neither possible nor desirable.

Through decades of media gaslighting, the great mass of people have lost their ability to see. The moving images of film and TV are like an intravenous shot into the consciousness. We – people who love truth, of whatever label – need to be secure and confident in our own minds to resist the false reality the propaganda media is inflicting on us.

If someone parrots a media platitude, we should smile knowingly and ask them, “Do you really believe that?” Sometimes the speed at which they will back-track is surprising. However, most people simply go along with the majority view, or what the media leads them to think is the majority view. Thus the media’s portrayal of what the majority believes becomes an abnormal conventionality to which most people adhere.

By the ubiquity and sheer volume of its output, the media preconditions our brains to interpret our perceptions and experiences in the manner they desire. Plus, that manner is portrayed as the norm. These two factors – preconditioning and inventing a false consensus – go a long way toward explaining how the fantasy world is created and maintained, and why the false perspectives are so recalcitrant. After all, the vast majority of optical illusions become no clearer for staring at them. They exploit how we have learned to see since babyhood, and those cues and protocols cannot easily be unlearned.

How will the future play out? No-one can say for sure. Certainly logos will ultimately prevail – for it to be otherwise, the laws of nature would have to be torn asunder, requiring a sort of sci-fi-like transport to another dimension. My suspicion is that the inevitable and now looming fiat money collapse will be our salvation. The dramatic fall in living standards and painful readjustment will be traumatic for many, but that event will open the gates to allow reality to come crashing in.

Henry Hafenmayer – champion of German freedom – dies aged 48

Henry Hafenmayer, 1972-2021

One of the foremost champions of free historical research and discussion – Henry Hafenmayer – died last Wednesday (11th August) in southern Germany, aged 48.

A former train driver who was dismissed for his political opinions, Henry became a prominent public champion of German historical revisionists, in a country where one can be jailed for questioning the official version of ‘Holocaust’ history. He was best known for his website Ende der Lüge (‘End of the Lie’) and associated social media accounts.

In this task he was especially closely associated with four jailed revisionists: former leftist lawyer and philosopher Horst Mahler (85); publisher and ecologist Ursula Haverbeck (92); lawyer Sylvia Stolz, first jailed for defending the late Ernst Zündel; and filmmaker / video blogger Alfred Schaefer. All four have served long prison sentences, and Mr Schaefer is still in jail.

Henry Hafenmayer, Alfred Schaefer, and Lady Michèle Renouf during Alfred’s trial in Munich, 2018.

Henry himself faced several criminal charges, and until his untimely death was very much in the sights of occupied Germany’s political and judicial system.

He was a regular and convivial guest at political and social gatherings in Germany with comrades including H&D‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton. We are shocked and saddened at losing this greatly valued friend, but are confident in the knowledge that Henry’s courage, honour and loyalty will not be in vain. Henry Hafenmayer’s name will live on in the annals of a future, better Europe.

During several months of serious illness this year, Henry was treated at clinics in Germany and Switzerland. As reported by our friends at Recht und Wahrheit, a close comrade had to pick up the entire bill for this treatment and for Henry’s funeral costs, so H&D encourages readers worldwide to donate if they possibly can to help defray these costs.

The German account for such donations is as follows:

Account name: S. U.
IBAN: DE13 8405 5050 1250 0169 63
BIC: HELADEF1WAK
Payment reference: 1108201

Horst Mahler has given Lady Renouf permission to send us this English translation of his tribute. Horst writes:

It is an honorary title they give us when they call us “Nazis”. That was what Henry Hafenmayer had understood. He lived his life so that he might earn this title through action. He did not fear death, and when he made up his mind to call the recognized enemy of the peoples by its name, he knew what to expect. Under the banner “End of the lie!” he finally moved from defence to attack and thus became a role model for those German youth who still want to be German. He held out when his well-paid job as a train driver was terminated. His answer was to multiply his efforts to make the invisible enemy visible. He laboriously scanned the Talmud (in twelve bulky volumes published in German by the official Jewish publishing house Jüdische Verlag) and placed it in the global electronic network. [Three sentences deleted and part of postscript deleted due to UK race laws.] With his web blog “The End of the Lie” lobbing intellectual grenades at the emplacements of the anti-German front in his own country, he has branded the Big Lie as an attempted genocide. He was one of the first to give the New National Socialism (NNS) a face. That makes him unforgettable. Hail Henry Hafenmayer!

Did ‘racism’ win on penalties?

An ‘anti-racist’ mural of Marcus Rashford in Manchester was mobbed by gestures of wokeist support after ‘racist’ social media criticism of his missed penalty.

According to the football authorities and mainstream political leaders, ‘racism’ (especially on social media) is yet again the big story of the week, this time because of a few football fans’ reactions to England’s defeat on penalties in Sunday night’s final of the European Championship.

After weeks of intense wokeness led by England manager Gareth Southgate – who seems to believe that the talents of a few black footballers have resolved the entire debate about the merits or demerits of the multiracial society – the penalty shootout between England and Italy proved to be the wokeist’s worst nightmare.

Of the five English penalty takers, two White players scored while three black players failed.

It would be cruel as well as foolish to make too much of this, especially as one of the Blacks is only 19 years old.

Yet consider what would have been the universal media and political reaction had it been the other way round, or simply had a black footballer scored the decisive penalty winning the game for England, rather than missing the decisive penalty sealing our defeat.

Every other aspect of the match would have been a minor issue: the heroism of the black goalscorer would have been the front-page lead, and we would all have been treated to endless analysis of how this ‘English’ triumph had redefined our new, ‘diverse’, ‘vibrant’ nation.

The three players who missed for England: Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, and Bukayo Saka

These plaudits would have been just as exaggerated as the brickbats presently cast on social media, yet the former would have been the accepted (indeed compulsory) reaction to victory, while the latter is now being criminalised and indeed made the excuse for new crackdowns on the entire social media world.

And no one seems to be asking the only relevant question in footballing terms: did Gareth Southgate allow his wokeness to affect his managerial judgment? Not only did he choose three blacks among the five penalty takers (including 19-year-old Bukayo Saka, son of Nigerian immigrants), he actually brought two of these three onto the field during the final minutes of the match when they could make no positive difference in open play, with the sole intention of their taking penalties.

Afterwards Southgate insisted his choice had been based on how the players performed in training. Yet everyone knows that taking a penalty under pressure is completely different to taking one in training: indeed scoring from a penalty is not an extraordinary feat of footballing skill. Most schoolboy footballers would manage it most of the time in training. The knack is to to perform under pressure.

And you don’t have to be any sort of ‘racist’ to recognise that while Africans and Afro-Caribbeans might have many merits, performing well under pressure is not (on average) among them.

Who but an inveterate wokeist, when asked to guess the ideal type of man to score a penalty in front of an expectant crowd at the end of the final of the world’s second-most important football tournament, would answer: “a 19-year-old ethnic Nigerian”?

It’s no doubt ‘racist’ of us even to discuss such questions. Football personalities well outside the England set-up are now crying ‘racism’ whenever they wish to avoid embarrassing scrutiny.

Controversial Oldham Athletic owner Abdallah Lemsagam

No one in Oldham was surprised, for example, when yesterday the unpopular chairman of Oldham Athletic – Abdallah Lemsagam – who has been under pressure to resign from many fans, former players and staff – accused unnamed fans of ‘racially abusing’ him and his brother at a recent pre-season friendly.

He no doubt hopes that everything else about his running of the club will pale into insignificance next to an isolated alleged instance of ‘racism’.

How much longer will this craziness continue? Will ‘taking the knee’ be compulsory at every football match in England this season? And why stop there? Should we not insist that schoolchildren ‘take the knee’ at the start of every school day, much as in a bygone era they might once have said a prayer?

So far it appears that Gareth Southgate and his team have succeeded where Meghan Markle failed: institutionalising ‘anti-racism’ by the simple expedient of missing three penalties.

Trans row splits Green Party: ultra-woke leader quits

Sian Berry resigned today as co-leader of the Green Party a few days after the resignation of her colleague Jonathan Bartley. Ms Berry is probably the second-best known Green in England (after the party’s sole MP Caroline Lucas) and was her party’s candidate for Mayor of London in 2008, 2016 and 2021, finishing third with 7.8% this year. She has been a member of the Greater London Assembly since 2016.

Her resignation was prompted by a bitter internal row within the Green Party over “trans rights” – specifically whether a man should be allowed to define himself as a woman even if he has not had “gender reassignment” surgery.

Ms Berry (in common with most of the ultra-woke left – though why this should even be a left v right issue is a mystery to H&D) is a fanatical supporter of trans rights: so far as she is concerned, people can define themselves as male, female, or something indeterminate – regardless of biological facts.

Her problem is that the Greens (being very ‘democratic’) elect their party spokesmen, so she is unable to choose her own leadership team.

In her resignation statement, Ms Berry writes of “an inconsistency between the sincere promise to fight for trans rights and inclusion in my work and the message sent by the party’s choice of front bench representatives.

“This inconsistency has left me in a very difficult position. I can no longer claim that the party speaks unequivocally, with one voice, on this issue.

“And my conscience simply cannot agree with the argument that there is anything positive in sending these mixed messages, especially when the inclusive attitudes of our membership and wider society are clear.”

Shahrar Ali

While Ms Berry was careful not to name names, H&D understands that the split centres on Shahrar Ali, a former deputy leader of the party who stood for the leadership last September against Ms Berry and Mr Bartley.

Shahrar Ali (who has a doctorate in philosophy from London University) is now the Green Party’s spokesman on policing, and it appears that due to his taking an opposing line on ‘trans’ Ms Berry found it impossible to tolerate his presence in the leadership team.

Dr Ali issued a statement last July entitled “What is a Woman?” in which he dared to write: “A woman is commonly defined as an adult human female and, genetically, typified by two XX chromosomes. These facts are not in dispute nor should they be in any political party. We campaign for the rights of women and girls to be treated equally on the basis of the protected characteristic of biological sex, as enshrined in the Equality Act 2010.”

While he went on to defend the rights of those who had gone through “gender reassignment”, this statement was interpreted by the ultra-woke as “transphobic”, apparently because Dr Ali seemed not to recognise the “rights” of people to make up their own gender regardless of biology.

It’s not the first time that Dr Ali has been in trouble for speaking his mind. In 2018 the Campaign Against Antisemitism and the Jewish Chronicle reported a speech he had made nine years earlier, describing it as an “offensive” anti-semitic “rant”. Dr Ali eventually won a ruling in his favour from the press regulator IPSO.

Dublin, Sinn Fein and Biden attempt conquest of Ulster by stealth

Edwin Poots, who resigned last night

Last night’s resignation of Edwin Poots after just three weeks as leader of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) has led to much sniggering among the liberal media establishment in London.

Yet this is far more than an internal party crisis for the DUP – it reflects a fundamental crisis over the meaning of democracy, and national/cultural identity.

Sinn Fein – political wing of the terrorist IRA – is trying to force through an ‘Irish Language Act’ as part of its invented ‘national culture’. Absurdly this would give the ‘Irish language’ equal status to English as an official language throughout Northern Ireland, even though it is a language that hardly anyone in the province speaks. Literally no-one in Northern Ireland speaks ‘Irish’ as their first language: even south of the border, only 1% claim to do so. Sinn Fein leaders regularly embarrass themselves when forced to stumble through a sentence or two in ‘Irish’.

As has been shown in several countries during the last century, imposing a language is part of a cultural struggle to achieve or compromise national sovereignty, which is clearly the case here.

The Dublin government and Joe Biden’s White House are part of a coordinated campaign to conquer Ulster. They are assisted by the provisions of the Good Friday Agreement, requiring that any devolved government in Stormont must involve a coalition of the largest Unionist party and the largest Republican party (in effect insisting on a DUP – Sinn Fein coalition).

Would President Biden be happy if the constitution forced him to share power with Donald Trump, regardless of the election result? Would President Macron of France, who had the cheek to imply that Northern Ireland was not part of “the same country” as the rest of the UK, be happy if he were forced to share power with Marine Le Pen and enact sections of her party’s agenda?

Yet that is what the Agreement imposes on Ulster.

Sinn Fein’s chutzpah knows no bounds. In response to Mr Poots’s resignation, Sinn Fein MP Chris Hazzard said that the DUP was “struggling to come to terms” with a “modern, progressive society”.

This from Sinn Fein – whose progressive modernism includes wishing to impose a language long dead (if indeed it ever existed in this form); a party rooted in barbaric terrorism, whose leaders (including the then Deputy First Minister!) openly scoffed at the law last year when holding a mass funeral for IRA godfather Bobby Storey.

The ultimate progressive modernism of Sinn Fein / IRA and their allies in Dublin and Washington is to force through the abandonment of Ulster identity and the imposition of Dublin rule against the democratic will of Ulster’s citizens.

That’s what lies behind the Irish Language Act and the EU’s trade protocols, and that’s why British patriots should stand with Loyal Ulstermen – whatever it takes – against this betrayal and in support of the United Kingdom’s integrity.

Anti-immigration party runner-up in German regional election

The anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany (Alternative für Deutschland – AfD) again finished runner-up in regional elections today for the eastern German state of Saxony-Anhalt, a Land that includes Martin Luther’s home town of Wittenberg as well as larger cities such as Magdeburg and Halle.

This was the last regional contest before Germany’s federal election in September, and was seen as an important test for Armin Laschet, the new leader of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party CDU. (Merkel will retire in September after sixteen years as Chancellor.)

Saxony-Anhalt has been one of AfD’s strongest regions as many eastern voters reacted strongly against Merkel’s pro-asylum seeker policies. At the previous state election in 2016, AfD polled 24.3% – only just behind the CDU’s 29.8% – and there had been speculation that this year they might even take first place.

However Sunday’s election showed that (as in several other regions) AfD has failed to make further advances, and in fact has slipped back slightly. The CDU massively extended its lead polling 37.1%, with AfD slightly down to 20.8%. AfD’s regional leader Oliver Kirchner lost the Magdeburg constituency that he had won in 2016, but for reasons related to the electoral system AfD has only one seat fewer in the new Landtag (which has 97 members rather than 87 in the old Landtag).

Up until last March every opinion poll (and several regional and European elections) showed AfD making further advances, but across the country they have been in decline (to a greater or lesser extent) for about fifteen months.

The reason seems to be that for more than a year AfD (in common with many other parties, movements and individuals in the broad pro-White movement nationwide) has allowed itself to be distracted by anti-lockdown and anti-vaccination campaigns.

While supported by a noisy minority, these have proved a turn-off for the vast majority of voters, including much of AfD’s natural support. There is already an obvious electoral home for those broadly libertarian voters whose political priority is resentment of lockdown: across Germany there have been modest increases in support for the socially and economically liberal Free Democrats (FDP), who fell below the 5% threshold in 2016 but returned to the Saxony-Anhalt Landtag this week with 6.4% (up 1.5%).

The good news is that the underlying issues relating to German nationhood and the threat of mass immigration/asylum (towards which the liberal FDP have precisely the wrong policies) have not gone away: AfD is the only major party that can represent millions of Germans concerned about these issues – and it should refocus as soon as possible on these core issues.

Ever since AfD’s rise it has taken more or less all of the votes previously won by the explicitly racial nationalist party NPD, which polled just 0.3% in today’s election, down from 1.9% in 2016, whereas back in 2011 with 4.6% the NPD were close to electing members to the Saxony-Anhalt regional parliament (Landtag), and did win Landtag seats in neighbouring Saxony in 2004 and 2009.

England Rugby drop ‘Saxons’ name in ethnic diversity drive

England’s rugby union team is the latest to fall into line with the worldwide disparagement of White identity.

This week the rugby authorities decided to rename the England reserve team, previously known as ‘England Saxons’. It will henceforth be known as ‘England A’, because the word ‘Saxon’ was thought to be an obstacle to the all-important drive to make rugby more ‘diverse’.

For some years now England Rugby have been trying to persuade crowds at international matches held at the Twickenham stadium in west London to stop singing their traditional anthem Swing Low, Sweet Chariot. Though there has never been any suggestion that this was intended to mock black heritage, the mere use of an originally black slave song is now seen as ‘cultural appropriation’.

While blacks are encouraged (indeed increasingly required) to be cast as White characters in historical plays, films and television productions, it is forbidden for Whites to stray onto black territory, as it is almost sacrilegious for a White to touch holy relics of black history and culture.

Examples from the world of sport include the renaming of the Washington Redskins as the Washington Football Team; and the suggested renaming of the Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians baseball teams. Another American football team – Kansas City Chiefs – have run into similar controversy and banned the use of native headdresses and face paint by fans.

The term ‘diversity’ of course always means ‘less White’.

One never hears any suggestion that a Black-dominated sport or a Black-dominated form of popular culture should be made ‘more diverse’.

Perhaps in some cases that’s a good thing. If sectors such as ‘gangsta rap’ were to be made ‘more diverse’, then perhaps shootings and stabbings in London would also become ‘more diverse’, rather than featuring primarily blacks killing other blacks.

Saxons might now be unmentionable in England Rugby circles, but 24 hours after their name was purged, the real historic Anglo-Saxons had the last laugh.

The Cerne Abbas Giant

The famous 180 ft Cerne Abbas Giant, carved into a Dorset hillside, has after years of speculation been dated to the late Saxon period. Detailed sediment analysis, studying grains of sand and long-buried microscopic snails, revealed yesterday that the Giant was created somewhere between 700 and 1100 AD.

No one has yet suggested that he was created by Africans.

Public inquiry reveals police infiltration of 1970s National Front

Four of the young radicals who sought to take over the NF in the early 1980s: (left to right) Joe Pearce, Richard Lawson, Nick Griffin, and Steve Brady. Two of this group were involved in an earlier faction that was spied on by undercover policeman ‘Peter Collins’ who infiltrated both the NF and the Workers Revolutionary Party

Documents released this morning as part of a public inquiry into undercover policing reveal that an officer codenamed ‘Peter Collins’ infiltrated the National Front during 1975 and 1976.

Strangely this infiltration occurred not on the orders of his police superiors, but as an indirect consequence of his deployment to infiltrate a Trotskyist organisation, the Workers Revolutionary Party.

As with many far left groups, the WRP tried to latch on to any militant street activity, ranging from anti-war protests to the campaigns of vandalism launched by friends and family of armed robber George Davis.

An undercover police unit – the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS) – was created in 1968 in response to concerns about public order threats from a new generation of far left and ‘counterculture’ groups that had little or no connection to the old-style communist parties and fronts that MI5 and Special Branch had previously monitored.

The SDS recruited young police officers to work as long-term informants but about a decade ago these plans ended in scandal after it was revealed that some officers had fathered children with young women inside the groups they were infiltrating. Hence the present inquiry.

‘Peter Collins’ was infiltrated into the WRP in 1974, and a year later (by an extraordinary Chestertonian irony) the WRP themselves asked ‘Collins’ to infiltrate the NF on their behalf!

For a year or so ‘Collins’ therefore reported to his SDS handlers both on the WRP and on the NF.

H&D has today obtained copies of SDS and Special Branch documents released by the Inquiry. Unlike the rather confused Guardian reporter who tried to make sense of the story earlier today, we have specialist knowledge of the people and factions concerned, and will in due course publish an analysis of what ‘Collins’ was reporting on during 1975-76: what he thought was happening in the NF, and what was actually happening.

By 1976 the SDS allegedly gave up on infiltrating the ‘far right’, because the longer-established security agencies – Special Branch and MI5 – already had sufficient sources of information on the racial nationalist movement.

Much of this Special Branch and MI5 information would have come from Jewish anti-fascist organisations: the Searchlight intelligence organisation run by Gerry Gable and Harry Bidney that had grown out of the violent 62 Group, and the more ‘establishment’ intelligence arm of the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

‘Peter Collins’ reported to the SDS on aspects of the 1975-6 split within the NF that spawned the National Party, and on the objectives of a small group of NF radicals who sought to use the NP split as part of a longer-term strategy for their own takeover of the movement on the back of a temporary alliance with conservative elements.
