Ursula Haverbeck again given jail sentence at 92

The indefatigable campaigner for truth and justice Ursula Haverbeck – who celebrated her 92nd birthday on November 8th – was yet again sentenced by a German court last Friday, under the Federal Republic’s notorious Volksverhetzung law that prohibits discussion of certain historical subjects.
Frau Haverbeck, a writer and publisher, for many years ran the educational institute Collegium Humanum with her late husband Werner Haverbeck (1909-1999). The Collegium hosted prominent intellectuals, including the pioneering ecological author and activist Ernst Friedrich Schumacher.

In 2004 Ursula Haverbeck was fined for Volksverhetzung, and has been convicted several times for further offences, in particular for “denying” that the Auschwitz internment camp was used for the homicidal gassing of Jews. In reality many of her offences consisted simply of asking precise questions of a series of German and Jewish officials – seeking to pin down the exact allegations that are made against wartime German authorities.

Instead of answering these questions in the normal manner, these officials chose to drag Ursula Haverbeck into court, where she has several times been sentenced to prison terms. From May 2018 until last month she was imprisoned in Bielefeld, in the north-west German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Just a month later, another jail sentence – this time 12 months, though appeals will follow. Ursula Haverbeck already has pending appeals against two sentences (one of ten months, the other six) for similar ‘crimes’. The ‘offence’ for which she was sentenced last Friday was a YouTube video interview with former schoolteacher Nikolai Nerling, known as Der Volkslehrer (“People’s Teacher”).

Monika and Alfred Schaefer

Many Germans are prosecuted every year for Volksverhetzung. The highest profile prisoner still incarcerated is the German-Canadian Alfred Schaefer, whose sister Monika was also imprisoned for her part in ‘Holocaust denial’ videos. No-one has yet calculated how much the Federal Republic spends on detection and prosecution of such ‘crimes’. 84-year-old attorney and author Horst Mahler was imprisoned until last month despite having had both legs amputated during his sentence.

Retired Supreme Court judges Winfried Hassemer and Wolfgang Hoffmann-Riem are among those who have called for the repeal of this monstrous debate-denying law.

Football fans all over England boo Black Lives Matter “take the knee” nonsense

It seems football fans all over England – not just Millwall as reported by the Main Stream Media (MSM) – were booing the Black Lives Matter ‘taking the knee’ nonsense at football grounds this afternoon. At some grounds in Covid Tier 2 areas, the Government “allowed” up to 2,000 fans to attend games this week.

Most fans had hoped that the saga of the “taking of the knee” to show support for the Communist / Republican organisation Black Lives Matter was over, and they could just get back to watching football again.

However, this was not to be and at most grounds, some misguided players and many officials who should know better, continued with this nonsense.

Understandingly, a lot of fans thought: enough is enough is now. When the players “took the knee” again they booed – and rightly so. They pay good money to watch footballers play football, not support militant political groups.

Of course the MSM went mental, and started to attack Millwall fans, while at the same time trying to cover up what was going on at other grounds.

Those watching the live West Ham United v Manchester United game on Sky Sports (who are big BLM supporters) which kicked off at 5.30pm, were treated to even more booing from West Ham fans!

Well done to all football fans across England (and some in Scotland we understand) who booed: let’s keep it up, they can’t ban us all.

Footnote: Astrophel Sang, aged 19, a BLM supporter from Birmingham, who was filmed using a lighter to try and set the Union flag at the Cenotaph, on fire during the BLM riots in Whitehall in London, on June 7th, before being brought down by the met police and arrested, was spared a jail sentence, and instead got a pitiful fine and community order – you just could not make it up!

Sang, an African immigrant, could have been jailed for up to 18 months. He twice tried to torch the Union flag, after climbing the war memorial during the riot. However, he could not light the flag because it was made to anti-flammable EU standards (well the EU is good for something!). However, he was given a two-year conditional discharge and told to pay £340 in costs.
Compare that to what nationalists might have got for similar crimes. What’s the old saying – one law for them……

Thought criminals released from jail sentences in Germany

Today the German attorney Sylvia Stolz was due for release having served an 18 month prison sentence in Germany for the ‘crime’ of having made a speech about German history and the principles underlying the search for historical truth.

(above left to right) Sylvia Stolz at the Schaefer trial in Munich in 2018 with Wolfram Nahrath (attorney for Monika Schaefer and later for Lady Renouf); Frank Miksch (attorney for Alfred Schaefer); Alfred Schaefer; and Lady Michèle Renouf.

First jailed in 2008 (and banned from legal practice) for her words in defence of German-Canadian publisher Ernst Zündel, Sylvia Stolz spoke at a conference of the Anti-Censorship Coalition, held in the Swiss town of Chur in 2012.

Background on this story is at the blog recently set up by H&D Assistant Editor Peter Rushton to report on the trial of Lady Michèle Renouf on similar charges of volksverhetzung – the German equivalent of our race laws, which unlike our law criminalises historical and scientific research into the alleged ‘holocaust’ of European Jewry during the Second World War.

Horst Mahler and Ursula Haverbeck celebrate their release from German jails last week

The release of Sylvia Stolz follows last week’s release of two of Germany’s veteran campaigners for historical truth and justice, 84-year-old Horst Mahler and 92-year-old Ursula Haverbeck.

The outside world finds it incredible that people of this age should be jailed for anything – still more incredible that their ‘crimes’ were political: daring to question orthodox versions of mid-20th century European history.

Horst Mahler had been prosecuted for several political offences since 2003, and had been in a Brandenburg prison since June 2017, having earlier been jailed from 2009 to 2015. During his sentence he has suffered increasing ill health including the amputation of both legs.

Ursula Haverbeck had been imprisoned for two and a half years since May 2018 and has faced repeated trials after daring to ask questions of the German authorities about what she terms “the biggest and most persistent lie in history” – the alleged ‘holocaust’ of European Jewry.

Alfred Schaefer remains incarcerated for similar offences following his conviction in 2018 for having posted online videos ‘denying the Holocaust’.

The outside world continues to wonder what sort of historical truth gets turned into an unchallengeable theological dogma and has to be defended by an edifice of laws criminalising those who dare challenge it.

Race police force resignation of FA Chairman

Greg Clarke, now ex-chairman of the Football Association

Greg Clarke, chairman of the Football Association, governing body in England for the world’s most popular sport, was forced to resign this week after using a forbidden racial word: not ‘n****r’ or ‘c**n’ or ‘w*g’ or ‘y*d’ – but merely ‘coloured’.

It didn’t help Mr Clarke that the context of this forbidden word was his testimony before a parliamentary committee, where he engaged in typical politically-correct grovelling. When discussing social media “abuse”, Clarke told the committee:

“…if I look at what has happened to high-profile female footballers, high-profile coloured footballers, and the abuse they have taken on social media. It is a free-for-all.

“People can see if you’re black and if they don’t like black people, because they’re filthy racists, they will abuse you anonymously online.

“They can see if you’re a woman, some of the high-profile black, female footballers take terrible abuse, absolutely vile abuse.”

Despite this typical White male self-abasement, the single word ‘coloured’ was picked out, and again despite a further abject apology, Clarke swiftly resigned.

Until about 1980, the word ‘coloured’ was perfectly normal in polite British discourse, but it’s now obligatory to say ‘black’ if one specifically means a negro, or use umbrella terms such as BAME if referring to non-Whites in general.

As with so much political correctness, this revision of vocabulary has come to Britain from the USA, where the term ‘coloured’ was part of the segregation of Whites and Coloureds that ended in the 1960s (although the word survives in its archaic meaning as part of the title of the anti-racist National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) founded in 1907).

‘Mixed race’ has followed ‘half-caste’ into the dustbin of forbidden terms (or perhaps as Mrs Clinton put it the “basket of deplorables”). This is because it’s no longer acceptable even to imply that there is such a thing as race, especially a putative ‘pure’ as opposed to ‘mixed’ race. Meanwhile the ‘N’ word is widely used at street level among ‘African-Americans’ and their co-racialists worldwide, but is among the worst sins imaginable if used by Whites. Other once-common words such as ‘piccaninny’, despite originating among blacks themselves, have long since been banned from White useage.

Many once common terms are now forbidden to Whites

This policing of language is a means of keeping Whites in line, constantly guarding their tongue and apologising for the imagined sins of their ancestors. Yet it’s becoming a dangerous game for the political establishment.

Organisations such as the FA are dependent on government cooperation, and grassroots football in particular depends on taxpayers’ largesse, so has no alternative but to play along with each successive politically correct obsession.

But the wider football-viewing public is increasingly exasperated. In the privacy of the polling booth, many once Labour-voting workers in northern England voted for Brexit (and in December 2019 for the Conservative Party) not solely because of constitutional issues and opposition to the European Union, but in a spirit of resistance to anti-White policies in the field of law and order, education, immigration and even sport.

The Greg Clarke ‘scandal’ proves the futility of attempting to appease ‘anti-racists’ by surrendering to their agenda. Ultimately it proves the futility of liberalism, ‘moderate’ conservatism and civic nationalism. Eventually Whites simply have to draw a line and say they will no longer accept this oppression. Will this resistance crystallise in post-Covid Britain?

Dresden Court Victory! Lady Michèle Renouf Acquitted

Attorney Wolfram Nahrath and his client Lady Michèle Renouf celebrate victory

In a last minute reversal, German prosecutors and a district court judge in Dresden have ended their criminal case against Lady Michèle Renouf, terminating a 32-month process, days before it was to come to trial.

Having arrested and charged Lady Renouf in 2018 immediately after her impromptu speech at a commemoration in Dresden, German prosecutors opened proceedings a year later under Germany’s notorious §130 Volksverhetzung law alleging “public incitement”, but the case has now ended without Lady Renouf being found guilty of any offence. (She has had to pay only a modest fee for the costs of a translator.)

“This decision was extraordinary – almost sensational”, says Wolfram Nahrath (Lady Renouf’s German attorney) who points out that such an ACQUITTAL of the charges in a ‘Holocaust’-related trial is a first in Germany. The German authorities did not want to take the risk of putting Lady Renouf on trial, given her background and the German constitutional issues that would inevitably be highlighted.

The §130 Volksverhetzung law has been used to jail German scientists, authors and even lawyers in recent years. ‘Holocaust’-related offences of ‘public incitement’ almost inevitably lead to long prison sentences.

Yet the unique circumstances of Lady Renouf and her 2018 Dresden speech led prosecutors to withdraw.

H&D, the Renouf trial blog and related social media accounts will examine the extraordinary fabric of the Renouf case and explain why the German state chose to throw in the towel.

Banks join culture war by banning patriotic customers

This week the British-based bank HSBC closed down two accounts linked to the new racial nationalist political party Patriotic Alternative – a personal account belonging to one of PA’s leaders Laura Towler, and the party’s official business account.

H&D understands complaints are being made to the relevant banking oversight authorities.

HSBC is the sixth largest bank in the world and the largest in Europe. It was founded in 1865 as the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank, making its initial fortune from opium trading.

Among the bank’s first board members was Thomas Dent, whose arrest for large-scale opium trading had triggered the first Opium War of 1839-42, in which British gunboats forced China’s Qing dynasty to accept the drug trade and to hand over Hong Kong to British control.

Arms dealer and Midland Bank consultant Stephan Kock

HSBC’s British high street operation was formerly Midland Bank, which was heavily involved in the seediest aspects of international arms trading during the 1980s via sinister fixer Stephan Kock, a Midland Bank consultant with mysterious connections to numerous intelligence services.

In the same week as HSBC closed down Patriotic Alternative accounts, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism alleged that HSBC “appear to have failed to adequately investigate concerns over a major fraud after an heiress accused her businessman father of draining millions from trust funds”.

It seems that major British banks have been more concerned with politically correct purges of law-abiding clients than with combating serious organised crime.

In January this year Barclays closed the personal account of H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton without giving notice – the first he knew of any problem was when his card stopped working, and even his local branch had no idea what had gone wrong! Further investigation revealed that the account had been closed by a secret unit inside the bank that refuses to give any reasons for its actions.

Leeds money-launderer Manni Hussain

British patriots might well ask in whose interests our banking system operates. Earlier this week the National Crime Agency accepted settlement of a case against a man they regard as a major money-launderer for organised crime. Leeds ‘businessman’ Manni Hussain was served with an Unexplained Wealth Order, sometimes known as a ‘McMafia order’. He handed over properties worth £10 million.

Until 2019 this crook owned the Wakefield Trinity rugby stadium, which he sold to the club last year for £3m, partly financed by Wakefield Council. According to the Yorkshire Post there is a continuing criminal investigation of this sale, after it was discovered that the stadium was actually worth less than half the purchase price.

The sheer scale of criminal money-laundering through British banks is mindboggling, and the NCA were forced to accept a settlement in which Mr Hussain retained some of his properties and cash, and didn’t go to jail. His close criminal associate, Bradford gangster ‘Meggy’ Khan, wasn’t so fortunate – he got life for murder.

Still, so long as ‘racists’ are denied a bank account, our rulers will sleep soundly in their beds.

Democracy dies in the nation that invented it

Golden Dawn supporters rally outside the Greek Parliament: the courts have now intervened to ban the party.

A Greek court has proscribed the nationalist party Golden Dawn as a ‘criminal organisation’. Six years ago Golden Dawn won more than half a million votes – 9.4% – and three MEPs in the European Parliamentary elections, but now it’s leader and founder Nikos Michaloliakos has been convicted of heading a criminal organisation, a felony that carries a maximum prison sentence of ten years.

According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Greek Jews celebrated the court’s verdict and seem to think that ‘holocaust denial’ by Mr Michaloliakos and some other leading members of the party is akin to terrorism.

Golden Dawn’s electoral breakthrough was in 2012 when it gained 21 MPs in the Greek Parliament. After years of relentless pressure both from prosecutors and from ‘antifascist’ violence – including several bomb attacks on party offices and the murder of two Golden Dawn activists in November 2013, shot dead by leftwing terrorists near party offices in northern Athens – the last eighteen MPs were defeated in 2019.

However in the 2019 European elections last summer Golden Dawn still polled 4.9% and elected two MEPs. The now-banned party also still has many elected local councillors.

It remains unclear whether Greek ‘democracy’ can survive this assault by the courts.

Actor launches new party to fight ‘culture wars’

Laurence Fox on BBC Question Time in January this year

Actor Laurence Fox – probably best known for his role as DS Hathaway in the long-running British television series Lewishas announced plans for a new political party to take on ‘woke’ culture warriors who dominate the UK news agenda.

Fox’s political views first came to public attention earlier this year when he was a panellist on the BBC’s Question Time. During a discussion about alleged ‘racism’ experienced by the Duchess of Sussex (former actress Meghan Markle), Fox commented: “It’s not racism … we’re the most tolerant, lovely country in Europe. It’s so easy to throw the charge of racism and it’s really starting to get boring now.”

He is the son of actor James Fox and nephew of fellow actor Edward Fox.

The party is to be called Reclaim, and among its stated objectives is “to promote an open space through full protection of the fundamental freedoms of speech, expression, thought, association and academic inquiry. To stand in full opposition to laws and other measures which undermine those freedoms.”

Another objective is “to preserve and celebrate our shared national history, cultural inheritance and global contribution.”

According to the Daily Telegraph, donors to the new party – which has been planned for the past two months – include former Conservative Party, Brexit Party and Vote Leave donor Jeremy Hosking.

There is no news yet from the Electoral Commission as to this new party being officially accepted and registered – which would be required before it could stand candidates in elections.

Mark Collett and Laura Towler of Patriotic Alternative – which like Laurence Fox’s ‘Reclaim’ has yet to be accepted by the Electoral Commission as a registered political party

Similarly the new racial nationalist party Patriotic Alternative has yet to be registered by the Commission, who rejected an earlier application by PA on a technicality.

As reported in H&D Issue 98, two former UKIP leadership candidates had their efforts to launch new parties rejected in June this year. Mike Hookem’s Alliance for Democracy and Freedom was eventually accepted on August 18th after reapplying, but the Heritage Party set up by the half-Jamaican David Kurten was rejected again by the Commission on September 4th.

Mr Kurten might not have a party (yet), but thanks to the postponement of last May’s elections he remains a Member of the Greater London Assembly (to which he was originally elected as a UKIP candidate) until May 2021 – or possibly later still, if the Covid pandemic forces another delay.

French author jailed in latest opinion crime crackdown

The French author Hervé Ryssen – pen name of 53-year-old Sorbonne graduate Hervé Lalin – has been jailed near Paris for the ‘crime’ of expressing opinions deemed ‘anti-semitic’.

Among his ‘crimes’ was publication of a book in 2018 entitled (in English translation) Understanding the Jews, Understanding Anti-Semitism, which the court found to have ‘denied the Holocaust’. This and several of M. Ryssen’s other books have been translated into English by Carlos Porter and are available via The Barnes Review.

Hervé Ryssen

On 18th September the Paris court ordered that Hervé Ryssen must begin serving a 19 month jail sentence for this crime of questioning orthodox versions of mid-20th century history. He will be brought from his cell to the ’17th correctional chamber’ at Porte de Clichy, Paris, for a new trial at 1.30 pm on 2nd December 2020.

Jean-Marie Le Pen, founder of the French National Front and former presidential candidate, has denounced the sentence.

English translations of several books by Hervé Ryssen are available from The Barnes Reviewclick above for link

This week veteran British nationalist and National Front Directorate member Richard Edmonds, together with H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton, wrote to Mr Ryssen/Lalin in prison.

An English translation of the letter appears below.

From Richard Edmonds, …Sutton, Surrey, Angleterre. Dated 23. September 2020.

To Herve Ryssen-Lalin,
Maison d’Arret de Fleury-Merogis, prisoner number 459-091, 7 Avenue des Peupliers, F-91 700, Fleury-Merogis, France.

Dear Herve Ryssen-Lalin,

Everybody is talking about your incarceration and everybody is condemning it…the nationalist weekly news-paper, RIVAROL, the founder of the Front National, Jean -Marie Le Pen and all the friends of Free Speech.

At this very moment the trial is taking place in Paris of the murderers who attacked the offices of the (vile) satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, and the President of France, Macron, has just stated that in France people have the right to blaspheme, meaning that the vile blasphemies of Charlie Hebdo are O.K.

[Note for British readers: a few years back, the front cover of the “satirical” French magazine showed a cartoon of the Holy Ghost buggering Jesus Christ who in turn was busy buggering His father, God Almighty; this filth all deemed O.K. by the French Establishment.]

Former Prime Minister Theresa May, alongside Sir Eric Pickles (chairman of Conservative Friends of Israel) declares “I am a Jew”, in a campaign inspired by supporters of Charlie Hebdo

Macron went on to boast that in France there was Freedom of Speech…but that clearly does not include the freedom to discuss details of the Second World War, otherwise you, Monsieur Ryssen-Lalin, would not find yourself locked up in this prison and for many months to come. What to say ? We find ourselves in a hypocritical and tyrannical world.

One can only add that you find yourself in the company of first class persons: At this very time the very brave German woman, Ursula Haverbeck aged 91 years finds herself locked up in a German prison up for the “crime” of expressing her non-violent opinions regarding details of the Second World War: as does the German Revisionist Horst Mahler, aged 84, and the German defence lawyer, Frau Sylvia Stolz, both incarcerated for expressing their non-violent opinions on events that took place more than seventy years ago. I note that the French Revisionist, Vincent Reynouard was locked up in this same prison; he wrote a book on his experiences in Fleury-Merogis prison.

Sincerely, Richard Edmonds and Peter Rushton.

UPDATE: Defenders of traditional European values and liberties have begun demonstrations of support for Hervé Ryssen at various sites across the French capital.

Free Hervé Ryssen!

Sky Sports News fires its White, male presenters

Sky Sports News Soccer Saturday team, three of whom were fired this week as part of a “diversity” drive

H&D readers might tend to assume that the BBC is the pinnacle of political correctness – not only in its actual political coverage but in drama, sport, etc.

Yet during the last few days its rival Sky Sports News has carried out what appears to be a racial and gender based purge of its presenters on the flagship show Soccer Saturday, aiming to create a more ‘diverse’ on-screen image.

Three longstanding presenters – all famous veteran footballers – were sacked on Tuesday:

  • Matt Le Tissier, one of the most technically gifted English players of all time, who played 443 matches for Southampton from 1986 to 2002 and won eight England caps. Le Tissier is known to be politically conservative and caused controversy earlier this year when he refused to wear a ‘Black Lives Matter’ badge on screen because of the group’s ‘far left’ ideology.
  • Phil Thompson, former captain of Liverpool and England whose honours include seven League champions’ medals and three European Cups. Thompson has been a Sky Sports presenter for 22 years.
  • Charlie Nicholas, striker for clubs including Celtic and Arsenal, who won 20 caps for Scotland, for whom he played at the 1986 World Cup. Twice top scorer in Scottish football.

Soccer Saturday anchorman Jeff Stelling wrote on Twitter about his regret at the purge: “One of my saddest days ever at Sky Sports with the departure of three of my best mates. They have been part of a team that for me was the best.”

Also purged was the main presenter of Sky’s Football League coverage, former Charlton and Chelsea defender Scott Minto – yet another White male presenter to be removed from the channel.

Ironically this week also saw the Liberal Democrats elect a new leader. One might expect the Lib Dems to be more politically correct than Sky Sports, but the opposite proved true this week. The Lib Dems elected Sir Ed Davey as their new leader, rather than the half-Palestinian, self-described ‘pansexual’ Layla Moran.

Sir Ed – a 54-year old White heterosexual male – would have no chance of being recruited by a British sports broadcaster in 2020.

UPDATE – September 2020: Not to be outdone by Sky in the political correctness stakes, the BBC has now dismissed Sue Barker, former tennis star and presenter of its popular quiz show A Question of Sport as well as both of the show’s team captains, former England rugby captain Matt Dawson and veteran spin bowler Phil Tufnell. We can assume that at least two of these three vacancies will be filled by non-Whites as the diversity drive continues.
