Generation Identity targeted in latest Twitter purge

The international ‘Alt Right’ group Generation Identity – which grew eight years ago out of the French Bloc Identitaire and its Scandinavian allies but now has branches in many White countries – has been targeted in the latest social media purge.

During the last 24 hours accounts belonging to several GI linked groups have been banned from Twitter, as has GI’s highest-profile leader Martin Sellner. NBC News claims that around fifty accounts have been removed following a hostile report by an ‘anti-racist’ group.

So far Mr Sellner’s American wife Brittany (née Pettibone) has escaped the purge, but is likely to be caught in a further wave of expulsions from Twitter during the next few days.

Defenders of European values – ranging from the ‘non-racist’ ‘Alt Lite’, through varying shades of civic nationalist, identitarian, Islam-obsessed, racially conscious and fully racial nationalist – have been removed from social media channels (notably YouTube, Twitter and most recently Facebook) at different stages during the past year.

(Generation Identity was analysed in H&D Issue 83 by Tony Paulsen.)

Rivarol editor convicted under French ‘hate speech’ laws

Jérôme Bourbon, editor of the long-established weekly journal Rivarol, has been given a nine-month suspended prison sentence by the Paris criminal court for the ‘crime’ of posting Twitter messages critical of international Zionism and raising questions about the state of free speech in 21st century France.

The three offending ‘tweets’ dated from 2018. M. Bourbon was banned from Twitter in 2019.

One of the offending ‘tweets’ commemorated First World War French hero Marshal Philippe Pétain, and had been posted by M. Bourbon to mark the centenary of the November 1918 armistice.

M. Bourbon was also required to pay ‘damages’ and court costs amounting to €6,000.

Rivarol is one of the longest established nationalist / traditionalist journals in the world, dating back almost seventy years to January 1951. Its 65th birthday banquet in 2016 was attended by Jean-Marie Le Pen and the late Prof. Robert Faurisson.

YouTube bans David Duke and Jared Taylor

Jared Taylor (second right) during a visit to the North of England with (left to right) H&D editor Mark Cotterill, assistant editor Peter Rushton, and former Member of the European Parliament Andrew Brons.

The online video platform YouTube yesterday banned several high profile pro-White and racial realist channels, including those run by former Louisiana state representative Dr David Duke, Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance, and prominent ‘Alt Right’ personality Richard Spencer.

This is the latest stage in an ongoing war against pro-White voices online. As regular readers will know, Heritage and Destiny was banned from YouTube just over a year ago, and from PayPal around four years ago.

We have to be realistic. Outside certain specific legal circumstances (such as making meeting-rooms and leaflet delivery available for election candidates), no one is under any obligation to provide us with a platform. Still less are they under any ‘free speech’ obligation when providing a free service such as YouTube or Facebook.

Sadly pro-White organisations and individuals will face continuing struggles online, having to move to platforms that refuse to censor us. This will risk ghettoising ourselves, since by comparison to YouTube, Facebook, etc. these platforms will tend to be populated mainly by folk who are already sympathetic to our movement.

The lesson is twofold.

(1) There is still an important role for hardcopy publications despite the proliferation of online access. If you subscribe to Heritage and Destiny, we can guarantee that you will receive your six issues each year – whereas if you subscribe to a YouTube channel it might disappear tomorrow.

(2) Pro-White activists must seek opportunities to engage with a wider public, whether online or in the ‘real’ world. When Covid-19 restrictions are relaxed, there will be no substitute for face to face engagement, both with existing movement sympathisers at conferences, rallies and the like; and with the general public via the electoral process and other public activity.

A predictable disaster: but don’t let it obscure the truth

This is how it should have been: British patriots including ex-servicemen celebrating victory over the anti-British mob – but our “own” side let them down.

Today’s counter-demonstration in Central London by “football lads” seeking to defend British heritage against the violent “Black Lives Matter” and “antifa” mobs, should have been a victory celebration.

The anti-British rabble had cancelled their own event, no doubt fearing they would come off worse in any confrontation with the “far right”. Late last night, even the most violent hard core of “London Antifa” gave up and advised their followers not to be in Whitehall today – causing some excellent disputes among their own side about lack of planning.

This was a moment calling for leadership and discipline. The “right-wing” demonstrators today should have been friendly and cooperative with the police. There should have been a couple of speeches celebrating victory and warning BLM and “antifa” that any further nonsense from them would again be confronted and defeated.

Then the troops could disperse, vowing to meet at a hostelry for further celebrations as soon as such venues reopen.

Unfortunately a large part of the so-called “far right'” has no leadership worthy of the name and no discipline, just as it has no ideological backbone. Though there were many hundreds of good, decent patriots in Whitehall today, they aren’t the ones who will be featured by the media.

A disciplined demonstration in Bristol today defending the Cenotaph, sadly let down by a section of the London demo: we aren’t going to publish photos of the scum who disgraced the patriotic cause today – but the mainstream media certainly will.

As was sadly predictable, a large percentage of the “demonstrators” supposedly on our “own” side were already incapably drunk before the event began, and like children were unable to control their bladders. Whitehall became an ocean of urine, and one so-called “patriot” was photographed micturating against the memorial to murdered police officer Keith Palmer, killed by a terrorist in 2017.

In other words an absolute gift to our anti-British media, who can now conveniently forget the bigger picture and report on the “far right” literally p*****g on our heritage.

Our disgust at this pathetic display shouldn’t however blind us to the bigger picture. Once this weekend’s headlines have faded, we shall still be confronted by alien mobs determined to tear down monuments across our country and across the White world, so as to impose their own fake history and their own multiracial nightmare.

And once their understandable disgust at the lagered-up yobs purporting to represent Britain has faded, our fellow countrymen will still be on our side rather than on the side of the culture-distorters and the nation-wreckers.

The challenge will be how to mobilise that support. It should now be clear that the likes of “Tommy Robinson” and Paul Golding have nothing to offer the nationalist movement that will rise in post-Corona Britain.

British History Matters

A local resident defending the Baden-Powell statue in Poole, Dorset

The assault on British history continues, with Lord Baden-Powell (founder of the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides) the latest target. Locals in Poole, Dorset, rallied in defence of the Baden-Powell statue, and the local council announced temporary plans to remove it from the quayside to prevent vandalism.

The scouting movement began on Brownlea Island in Poole Harbour, but its founder is now accused of that most heinous crime – “racism”.

It seems that every aspect of British history is now to be judged in relation either to slavery or the “White supremacism” of the British Empire – in which (by the way) slavery was abolished in 1807, fifty years before Baden-Powell’s birth.

Sir Francis Drake’s statue in Tavistock, Devon, was the latest target

A further prime target (a hundred miles along the Channel coast from Poole) is Sir Francis Drake’s statue on Plymouth Hoe (as well as another Drake statue in his nearby birthplace of Tavistock). Drake was the second man to circumnavigate the Earth – and the first to command such a voyage from start to finish. En route he piratically raided Spanish galleons, and on his return to Plymouth in 1580 handed half his booty to the Crown.

This loot amounted to more than the rest of Queen Elizabeth’s income for the entire year!

Drake is not being belatedly held to account for piracy. Rather his sin is to have been tangentially involved in the slave trade. Together with his cousin and fellow privateer Sir John Hawkins, Drake is believed to have been the first British slave trader – but slaves were simply one of many commodities that Drake and Hawkins stole from the Portuguese when attacking their ships off the African coast.

In fact Drake was just as likely to employ slaves who had escaped the Spanish as he was to trade in them: in the context of Drake’s life and times, the slave trade was a very minor footnote indeed.

Yet in 2020 this is all that matters. Drake’s crowning achievement – the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 – is now held of little account compared to the fact that in his youth he captured some slaves (as part of other cargo) and sold them on. Our entire history – in common with the history of every other White nation – is to be reduced to our relationship with Blacks and other minorities: a relationship in which we White Europeans must now be subservient.

Even as symbols of British history are torn down, the government promotes plans for a gigantic ‘Holocaust’ memorial in Westminster

The whole charade is rooted in the cult of Holocaustianity, where history is redefined in terms of victimhood. Women can be cast as eternal victims, so an entire historiography of female oppression spawns a profitable academic industry. Blacks are among the most useful victims for the rewriters and heritage-destroyers, who must however be careful to ignore the tendency for women to be victims of blacks, or blacks to be victims of other blacks.

But the fons et origo of the entire victim cult is the ‘Holocaust’, and Jews are history’s ultimate victims – the ultimate case in which we Whites must confess “we are all guilty”. (The phrase was popularised by the late Michael Wharton – aka Telegraph columnist Peter Simple – as the cry of his satirical ‘great social psychologist’ Dr Heinz Kiosk, but is now literally enforced as the worldwide White catechism.)

This ‘Holocaust’ cult’s pioneers are now, however, in danger of falling into their own trap, as some Blacks develop a new spin-off heresy – Blacks as victims of Jews!

2020’s iconoclasm might yet prove to be the start of White reawakening in defence of our heritage and in defence of historical truth: down with the Victim Cult of Historical Lies!

Back to Africa Day: 10th June

On this 80th anniversary of Marcus Garvey’s death, we commemorate his movement for a just repatriation of today’s uprooted descendants of past stolen slaves to their native African homeland.

What would Garvey have made of today’s ‘Black Lives Matter’ mob and their rabble of ‘antifa’ followers/inciters?

Surely BLM’s insistence on wiping out White European heritage in favour of a multiculti melting-pot is the polar opposite of Garvey’s ideas?

Perhaps Garvey would instead have supported next Saturday’s “Defend Our Memorials” initiative, organised by the Democratic Football Lads Alliance and Veterans Against Terror?

First they came for the Confederates – and I did not speak out, because I was not a Confederate…

The Robert E. Lee Monument in Richmond, Virginia, unveiled in 1890, now to be removed as Virginia’s Governor surrenders to the BAME brigade.

Virginia’s Democratic Party Governor Ralph Northam (himself from a slave owning family) has finally backed down to the BAME brigade and has instructed Richmond Council to take down the great statues of the Confederate Generals on Monument Avenue just outside of down-town Richmond.

I lived in Virginia for over seven years (1995 – 2002) and had the pleasure of visiting Monument Avenue three or four times during my time in America. It was one hell of a place. The giant statues were like nothing I had seen before.

Apart from General Robert E Lee (a direct descendant of King Robert the Bruce of Scotland), Richmond Council plan to take down the statues of President Jefferson Davis (who was of English/Welsh descent), General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson (who was of Ulster-Scots descent), and General James “Jeb” Stuart (also of Ulster-Scots descent). All were British-Americans.

The J.E.B. Stuart monument, photographed here in 1933, was the second Civil War statue to be unveiled in Richmond in 1907.

Just this last week, the General Lee Statue was attacked and vandalised by hundreds of communist and anarchist demonstrators, who joined the BAME brigade, protesting the death of black career criminal George Floyd.

Floyd had been arrested by four police officers in Minneapolis, for passing forged $20 bills in local shops. He resisted arrest and was forced to the ground, where he died. Some years before in Houston, Texas, Floyd had been arrested for an armed home invasion (burglary) – he forced his way into a lady’s house and threatened her with a gun before robbing her. Due to a plea-bargain, he got away with just a five-year jail sentence.

I wonder how long it will be before the BAME brigade here in England and in the rest of the UK start demanding that our statues be taken down too, as they are not to their liking, i.e. too WASP-like. In Scotland under their neo-Marxist SNP Government this is already happening. And once Sinn Fein become the majority in Northern Ireland, they will follow suit.

The statue of King William III in St James’s Square, SW1, will doubtless have to go.

And before you say that’s never going to happen, remember the BAME group are only 15% of the UK population now (and look how much sway they have). Long before they reach 50% you can say goodbye to our history, our heritage, our heroes: statues and all. Boadicea, King Billy, Oliver Cromwell, Lord Nelson, Duke of Wellington, Cecil Rhodes, Winston Churchill, Bomber Harris and many others. They will all be written out of the new PC history books.

Will this statue of wartime allies Roosevelt and Churchill (in New Bond St, London) survive the purge?

End note: On the subject of slavery and the American Civil War, fewer than 10% of families in those Southern states that became part of the Confederacy in 1861-1865 owned slaves. And it should also be remembered that on the Northern side, many of them had owned slaves too in the recent past.

The rose-coloured myth of the Civil War is that the blue-clad Union soldiers and their brave, doomed President, Abraham Lincoln, were fighting to free the slaves. They weren’t, at least not initially. They were fighting to hold their nation – the Union – together. Lincoln was known personally to oppose slavery (which is one reason why the South seceded after his election in 1860), but his chief goal was preserving the Union. In August 1862, he famously wrote to the New York Tribune: “If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that.”

Oliver Cromwell is yet another “dead White male” who will presumably have to be sacrificed to appease the PC crusaders.

Lincoln was also part of a group in the Republican Party that wanted to remove former black slaves from the US altogether. From roughly late 1861 onward, he was involved in some very serious policy discussions about what the post-slavery US would look like, and one of his solutions that he offered, drawing on something that had long been a part of his political advocacy, was to colonise the black slaves abroad. Historically, the most famous example of this is Liberia, which was founded in 1816. Over the course of the next 50 or 60 years, several thousand former slaves migrated to Liberia and colonised it.

Lincoln liked this model, but wanted to expand upon it, and he was willing to look in Central and South America, and across the Caribbean. He pursued this policy for the better part of his presidency, secured funding from Congress in 1862, and carried it out in conjunction with the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863.

H&D Editor Mark Cotterill, who reports from semi-enriched Preston, was chairman of the Virginian-based American Friends of the BNP, from 1999 – 2001.

Sir Arthur ‘Bomber’ Harris might just be the only historic White Briton whose statue is permissible in the PC World.

UPDATE: Saturday June 6th (76th anniversary of the D-Day landings).

It didn’t take long for the usual suspects to fulfil our editor’s prediction! The Churchill statue was vandalised twice this weekend, once as reported by The Sun in the link above, then again the next day (see photo below).

The video below was shot at 5 am on the morning of Sunday June 7th, showing widespread vandalism of statues in Parliament Square. St Nelson Mandela seems to have escaped unscathed, but Abraham Lincoln and an array of British statesmen from Disraeli to Palmerston were all sprayed with slogans such as BLM (Black Lives Matter) and ACAB (All Cops Are Bastards). The latter referring to the same ‘cops’ who had cravenly knelt before the mob in previous days.

H&D readers will have mixed feelings about some of the historical figures commemorated outside Parliament, but none of us should be in any doubt – this vandalism isn’t a commentary on the historical record of Abraham Lincoln or Disraeli. In fact we can safely bet that fewer than 1% of the black protesters had the slightest idea who Lord Beaconsfield might be.

Their impulse was to demonstrate control of the streets and contempt for white civilisation. Our political leaders – and following years of brainwashing, also our police – have allowed them free rein.

TERMINATED: Lowles leaves Hope not Hate

The CIA’s favourite anti-fascist, Ruth Smeeth lost her seat at the General Election in December. Could she fill Nick Lowles’ editorial chair at Hope not Hate?

Earlier today one of Britain’s most infamous ‘anti-fascists’ mysteriously quit as a director of the organisation he founded. According to documents filed at Companies House a few hours ago, Nick Lowles is no longer a director of Hope not Hate.

This adds to the mystery of Matthew Collins’ disappearance. Collins, once proudly described as HnH’s ‘head of intelligence’ but whose greatest exploit was to have poisoned the fish in a school fish tank some years ago, has not been heard of since before Christmas.

Is this a Griffin-style fallout over money; is at about jobs for the boys – or bearing in mind the recent election result in Stoke North, is it about jobs for the girls?

Watch this space for further news from the ferrets-in-a-sack world of ‘anti-fascism’.

Ursula Haverbeck’s 91st Birthday – Richard Edmonds speaks at Bielefeld demo and at NF Ceremony 24 hours later

Ursula Haverbeck, nominated the Grande Dame of German Revisionism by the late Prof. Robert Faurisson, “celebrated” her 91st birthday in prison. Yes, you read that correctly: Frau Ursula Haverbeck is ninety one years of age and she finds herself incarcerated in a prison cell, charged and found “guilty” of questioning the allegation of the so-called “Holocaust”, the allegation that the Germans during the Second World war murdered millions of Jews in homicidal gas-chambers. For expressing her non-violent opinions on aspects of the history of the Second World War which she herself lived through as a teenager, the current ruling establishment of the Federal Republic of Germany, in its viciousness, has locked this 91-year-old up in a prison cell in an attempt to silence her.

On Saturday, the 9th November, the very day of Ursula Haverbeck’s 91st birthday, hundreds of German nationalists, patriots and friends, well-wishers and admirers of the Grande Dame of German Historical Revisionism marched through the centre of the north German town of Bielefeld where Ursula is imprisoned. With great gusto we paraded with flags flying and with banners held high proclaiming Ursula Haverbeck to be a Heroine for Germany and demanding Truth and Justice for Germany. The authorities gave us permission to hold a public rally right in the centre of Bielefeld. There was of course a large contingent of Police present. And there were of course large numbers of demented Lefties shouting their usual obscenities. However our loud-speaker system drowned out all that Sound and Fury signifying nothing (Shakespeare’s Macbeth). Our rally lasted the best part of two hours; right in the centre of town; the traffic was stopped; the trams ceased running; and we held our rally without any interruption. Here is the speech that I gave on this historic occasion:

Richard Edmonds addresses the Bielefeld demonstration in support of Ursula Haverbeck, Saturday 9th November 2019

“Dear German friends, my name is Richard Edmonds, I am British.

“I have travelled here to Bielefeld to show solidarity with the very brave patriot, Ursula Haverbeck, whom I have known for many years. She is a wonderfully brave campaigner for the honour of Germany and now this fine woman must “celebrate” her 91st birthday in prison. Shocking. Ursula Haverbeck, an educated and cultivated woman, has posed questions regarding the topic of the “Holocaust”; she has posed the most serious questions, forensic, scientific, objective questions. And for this, she finds herself on her 91st birthday in jail here in Bielefeld.

“Yes. I know, we are in the Federal Republic. In order to make the situation clear, I will refer to the trial that took place in Mannheim in 2003, the trial brought against the German-Canadian, Ernst Zündel, yet another individual charged with “Holocaust”-denial. At Zündel’s trial, the presiding judge, Dr. Ulrich Meinerzhagen, found himself obliged to state in the open court, and I quote him: ‘It is completely irrelevant whether the “Holocaust” took place or not. It is the act of denial of the “Holocaust” which is a crime. And that is all that matters in this court.’ : Presiding Judge Dr. Meinerzhagen.

“Here with absolute modesty can I (R.Edmonds) state that in Great Britain and in the United States of America, we have complete Freedom of Speech on the subject of the “Holocaust”; this means that every type of question may be posed on this topic; and everyone has the right to publish answers which are based on forensic, scientific, objective facts.

Dr Herbert Schaller with his client Ernst Zündel on the day of the latter’s release from Mannheim prison in 2010.

“As a guest here in Germany, I can only quote the former, now retired, judge sitting on the supreme court in Germany, the Constitutional Court, Judge Wolfgang Hoffmann-Riem:

‘I would not make the questioning of the Holocaust a criminal offence.’ Judge Hoffmann-Riem, July 2008 (Der Tagesspiegel, 10. July 2008)

“Finally, dear friends. I would like to quote the famous German hero, Ulrich von Huten, who five hundred years ago, said: ‘Germany is there, where strong hearts are beating.’ Thank you.”

Finally let me make this comment: one does have to wonder if a change is now taking place in the Federal Republic of Germany, set up as it was by the western Allies at the end of the Second World War, the twin in fact of the Communist regime set up in Easten Germany by the forces of the Soviet Union. How else might one explain the readiness of the authorities to give permission for this “Birthday celebration” right in the centre of the town where Ursula Haverbeck is held prisoner in the local jail? The activity must have cost the town a great deal of money; vast numbers of Police were employed, and the centre of the town was effectively shut down for the afternoon: what with several hundred Nationalists and possibly as many as two thousand Lefties plus large numbers of Police officers, the result was that no trams were running through the town, no cars or delivery vehicles, access to the main-line railway station was barred for a time, little business could have been conducted that day; all this was predictable, but permission was given, in spite of counter-pressure from the usual suspects, permission was given for the go-ahead. A historic week-end. A privilege to be there.

H&D note: 24 hours after the Bielefeld demonstration, Richard was back in London addressing the National Front’s memorial day rally (see video below) – though due to ‘kettling’ by police in Bielefeld, he had to catch a later Eurostar and missed the march to the Cenotaph. A remarkable weekend, and a fitting tribute to the true Europe for Europeans that racial nationalists seek to build post-Brexit.

Secret tapes show politicians once dared to speak about race

President Richard Nixon (above left) in conversation at the White House with Prof. Daniel Patrick Moynihan

In July this year the US National Archives released a previously secret tape recording of then President Richard Nixon and future President Ronald Reagan speaking frankly about racial differences.

Today two American scholars writing in The Atlantic reveal that these forbidden views were not held only Reagan and Nixon, a man who of course has long been demonised by the political establishment, but by an ultra-respectable academic.

The President was conversing in October 1971 with Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a Harvard professor who had previously been an adviser to Nixon but was more closely associated with the Democratic Party. Indeed despite his bipartisanship, Moynihan was for decades an icon of America’s liberal intelligentsia.

Yet on this White House tape and in an earlier memorandum, Prof. Moynihan explicitly recognised racial realities. Commenting on an article on race and IQ by Richard Herrnstein published earlier that year, Moynihan wrote: “Herrnstein is, of course, very much worth reading. The findings of intelligence testing, which he summarizes, have profound implications for social policy. …Psychologists now think they know something of the ranking of the major races. Asians first; Caucasians second; Africans third.”

Prof Richard Herrnstein was co-author of The Bell Curve, a book that pointed out the differences between black and white IQ.

Moynihan agreed with the President that in implementing federal programmes to promote black education, he had to bear in mind their fundamental weaknesses – that because of their IQ blacks would basically be at a disadvantage “when you get to some of the more, shall we say, some of the more profound, rigid disciplines”.

His memo to Nixon concluded with pragmatic advice that no doubt influences even those few politicians today honest enough to address racial realities: “Finally, may I plead that you say nothing about this subject, nor let anyone around you do so. There is no possibility of your concern being depicted for what it is, a desire to respond to knowledge in a responsible and prudent manner.”

Moynihan died in 2003, but he would not be surprised that 21st century journalists and scholars are using these newly revealed tapes not to challenge their own liberal multiracialist dogmas, but to demonise Moynihan himself.
