The BNP’s anti Semitism continues.

I wrote just last week about how anti Semitism is never too far away from the British National Party.

Just a week later and I have yet another vile example of how the BNP is still the same hate filled party of old.

This time it is the East London organiser and activist Jeffrey Marshall, a name probably familiar to some Hope not Hate readers.

In 2009, Marshall was embroiled in a scandal over his call for children with disabilities to be killed.

When David Cameron’s son Ivan passed away in February 2009, Marshall went onto an internet forum writing: “We live in a country today which is unhealthily dominated by an excess of sentimentality towards the weak and unproductive. No good will come of it.” Cameron’s son had cerebral palsy and was described by the Camerons as their “beautiful boy”. David Cameron said that Ivan had brought “joy and love to those around him”.

Not content with attacking Mr and Mrs Cameron and others mourning Ivan’s death, Marshall stated that although it would be “a kindness” to kill children with disabilities, this was not the same as advocating such a measure as compulsory state policy. “But so what if it is?” he asked. “At least we would all know where we stand. There is actually not a great deal of point in keeping these sort of people alive, after all.”

Sick stuff I’m sure all right minded people would agree, yet Marshall has never had a problem when it comes to offending people.

Marshall’s victim this time is Anne Frank, one of the most renowned and most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust, her diary has become one of the world’s most widely read books.

In 1945, Anne Frank perished at the hands of the Nazis in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, aged just 15 years old.

Marshall, posted a sick joke to his Facebook profile, mocking Anne Frank, writing “Funny at first”.

I’ve included a grab of the posting below.

Marshall attempted to wriggle out of his sick comments in 2009, I’m sure he will try to do the same again in 2012
