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).

Joe Biden with the late IRA godfather Martin McGuinness (above right)

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).

Election posters for Saxony-Anhalt’s regional president Reiner Haseloff (CDU) and his AfD rival Oliver Kirchner.

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.

Fans of Kansas City Chiefs are now banned from using once-traditional headdresses and faceprint

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.

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!

Down with the Pack of Liars!

Lady Michèle Renouf and the ‘Alternative for Britain’ Bitchute channel today posted this story in Commemoration of Richard Edmonds (1943-2020), our legendary English nationalist.

Like legendary German attorney Manfred Roeder (1929-2014); and the Berlin attorney Wolfram Nahrath (1962- ) ; Richard Edmonds stood lifelong for British/German/Russian real history, honourable conduct, and mutual justice.

The title “Down With the Pack of Liars” cites the great German poet Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805).
All four European men (the poet, the two lawyers, the orator) have Schiller’s call for “manly character” (Virtus) in common.

The trilogy is introduced by the oratory prize-winning voice of Richard Edmonds. He reads the Schiller poem which is the keynote to the late Manfred Roeder’s guardianship of authentic German heritage and cultural pride fostered in his historic educational centre at Haus Richberg.

Roeder a political prisoner of conscience (sentenced for 13 years and in this film speaks before going to jail again!) declares:
“Germany must remain our land”; and declares Haus Richberg: “the centre of the promotion and preservation of the German spirit”.

Attorney Roeder briefly defended the legendary peace-broker Rudolf Hess when silenced for life in solitary imprisonment at Spandau.

The trilogy continues with this link to a film (of 7 mins duration): https://www.bitchute.com/video/2DJAKeitHyxM/

The viewer is welcomed through the renovated exterior into the handsome hall of Haus Richberg where we meet the Berlin attorney Wolfram Nahrath. He specialises in defending political cases for Bishop Richard Williamson, Attorney Horst Mahler, the Schaefer siblings, Ursula Haverbeck, and winning in the extraordinary Volksverhetzung case of Lady Michèle Renouf.

The trilogy concludes with this second link to Part 3 (duration 47 mins): https://www.bitchute.com/video/5PkNT8mfue6f/

Here we share RA Wolfram Nahrath at breakfast with host and friends at Haus Richberg. He discusses why today’s German people are deprived of their democratic choice and sovereignty. German citizens (still under wartime Allied occupation) cannot choose to disallow the sending of their soldiers (as if American mercenaries) into “peace-keeping” wars which then render Germans as retaliatory sitting targets.

The late Richard Edmonds likewise saw how the British postwar – akin to the wartime policy-making “pack of liars” – put the nation’s indigenous people at risk of reprisals for “peace-keeping” war “missions”.

This “pack of liars” put all European nations at risk of conquest by mass migrating aliens. Inevitably these aliens will out-number the rooted citizens who have never been democratically consulted! Inevitably, all such conquered European nations will succumb to native European “species extinction”.

Neither the host country nor the “developing” nation gains from the artificially induced mass onslaught of uprooted aliens who having abandoned their needy homeland, then collude to racially abuse the host nation with gross ingratitude.

“Allies = All Liars” – Long Live the catch-cry of Richard Edmonds!

Media hype assorted cranks and loons in effort to criminalise nationalism

Benjamin Hannam, the young police recruit arrested in his bedroom, whose Hollywood Nazi fantasies have been portrayed as ‘terrorism’ and led to his conviction last week.

During the last fortnight several criminal convictions in English courts have provided further ammunition for those seeking to restrict political freedoms in Britain.

The UK has not had anything approaching ‘free speech’ on racial matters since the first Race Relations Act in 1965, and as H&D has explained in several detailed articles over the years, these restrictions have been progressively tightened. This dishonest campaign by the political establishment has involved deliberately distorting the truth about serious crimes.

Of course most H&D readers would rightly regard the entire structure of race law as a sinister infringement of what were once traditional British freedoms, and as part of a concerted effort quite literally to change the face of Britain.

However this does not mean that we should regard everyone prosecuted under these laws (or the related extension of terrorism laws to encompass a range of non-violent if unwise political activities) as some sort of hero or heroine.

To do so – to campaign on behalf of everyone convicted under these laws as though they were all quite simply free speech martyrs – would be foolish and counter-productive: indeed it would be to play the enemy’s game.

For example, two of those recently convicted under the ‘terrorism’ laws were autistic children who had bought into the imagery of ‘nazism’ rather than anything substantial.

It really was pathetic to see national newspapers give front page treatment to the case of 22-year-old London police officer Benjamin Hannam, who as a confused teenager with a Jewish step-grandfather and a Muslim girlfriend had briefly been involved with the now-defunct National Action and one of its offshoots.

He had also downloaded the ‘manifesto’ of a real terrorist maniac, Anders Breivik, and in common with several of his ilk seemed to view Breivik – an ultra-Zionist whose beliefs and actions were the very antithesis of national socialism – as some kind of ‘nazi’ / ‘fascist’ comrade.

Anders Breivik, the Zionist fanatic whose ‘racist’ murder spree has led him to be regarded as some sort of ‘nazi’ / ‘fascist’ hero by fools on the fringes of our movement

There are one or two people on the fringes of our movement who indulge such dangerous nonsense, and it’s time for responsible racial nationalists, national socialists, historical revisionists – indeed all of those involved in the broad campaign for the rescue of historical truth and national, racial, and cultural integrity – to draw the line.

Racial nationalism is not the mindless promotion of hatred, and racial nationalists are the very opposite of nihilistic terrorists. National Socialism is not Hollywood nazism or psychotic satanism. Historical revisionism is not a platform for crank conspiracy theory or vacuous Jew-baiting.

There is serious work underway – led by individuals with decades of experience as well as new recruits of high calibre – to defend serious racial nationalist politics and historical revisionist work in post-pandemic and post-Brexit Britain.

We are not going to be derailed by fantasists, cranks, or enemy informants – nor by those thousands of miles away who issue grand proclamations while utterly ignorant of the personalities and realities involved.

H&D’s Peter Rushton interviewed on ‘The Political Cesspool’

Political Cesspool host James Edwards (above right) with Dr David Duke

On Saturday night H&D‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton was interviewed by James Edwards and Keith Alexander for their excellent radio show The Political Cesspool. This show has been running since 2004 and previous guests have included presidential candidate and syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan; political philosopher and former Croatian diplomat Tom Sunic; and American Renaissance founder Jared Taylor.

Saturday’s show also featured Canadian free speech campaigner Paul Fromm, a longstanding friend of H&D, and French Canadian journalist Rémi Tremblay.

The Political Cesspool is devoting its broadcasts this month to a “March Around the World!” season featuring international guests. The season opened on March 7th with another two old friends of H&D – barrister Adrian Davies and retired Australian law professor Drew Fraser.
