Anti Semites together: Jonathan Hall with Nick Griffin

Let’s face it, anti Semitism is never too far from the British National Party

Nick Griffin himself received a conviction in 1998 for distributing material likely to incite racial hatred following statements made denying the Holocaust in The Rune, an anti Semitic quarterly of which Griffin was the editor.

During his trial Griffin made the notorious statement: “I am well aware that the orthodox opinion is that six million Jews were gassed and cremated and turned into lampshades. Orthodox opinion also once held that the Earth was flat … I have reached the conclusion that the ‘extermination’ tale is a mixture of Allied wartime propaganda, extremely profitable lie, and latter witch-hysteria.”

In recent years Griffin has attempted to tone down his hatred of the Jews, with the BNP even having a Jewish councillor, Pat Richardson in Epping Forest to add some weight to the claims that the BNP are no longer anti Semitic.

However, scratch the surface and the hatred will always return.

Jonathan Hall, who until recently was the BNP’s Brighton organiser as well as the West Sussex regional organiser.

Hall quickly became unhappy with how the BNP operate, accusing South East regional organiser Nick Prince of interfering in the running of his Brighton branch.

Hall’s temper quickly boiled over and used Facebook as a way of venting his spleen.

Hall posted “Nick Prince will not have a SE region to manage within two weeks”

He continued “c**ts like Prince and his dirty Jewish greasy fucking hair sneak up on us all”

Finally he added “If Nick Prince doesn’t resign soon I’ll make it my mission to fuck that Jewish greasy prick…..Hitler had a purpose with the Jews, he lost out when hit came you Yid c***ts like Prince. Only shame he didn’t gas his folks and put us out of our troubles”

Soon after Hall resigned as Brighton organiser.
