Yesterday, February 13th, was the 74th anniversary of the bombing of Dresden in which over 100,000 men, women and children were burned alive in a holocaust delivered by the British and American air forces. There were more German civilian deaths during just a few days’ bombing raids over Dresden and Frankfurt than there were British victims of German bombs throughout the entire Second World War.
They fought for our freedoms – or so we were told.
Also yesterday, the Crown Court in Southwark upheld the ruling delivered last May by Westminster Magistrates Court that I was guilty of causing “gross offensive” after posting links to live performances of three of my songs. As noted in my previous post, the points of law regards “sending” and what constitutes a “public electronic communications network” will now be appealed at the Divisional Court.
Contrary to remarks made by my accusers of Campaign Against Antisemitism and other ignorant sources, the Crown Court’s ruling yesterday does not constitute a “legal precedent”. Britain is still free of any so-called “Holocaust denial” law. Legal precedents under UK law are applicable on points of law rather than on “facts”. Furthermore, even if my case were to go the Supreme Court, it would create no more than a “persuasive”, non legally-binding “precedent” in countries such as France and Germany, which in any case are Civil Law (as opposed to Common Law) jurisdictions, and where legal precedent is not binding in the same way that it is in England.
Press citations from Judge Hehir’s ruling are simply a repetition of the usual insult and ad hominem. During cross examination on Tuesday, I was able to relate the entire campaign of demonisation against me, including police negligence, CAA use of online trolling, double standards, etc., – all of which was thoroughly disregarded by the court. Furthermore, predictable gloating from the usual suspects merely strengthens French dissident Alain Soral’s recent observations to a Yellow Vests rally and in particular his remark that those of us willing to take the hits do so in order to show who is dishing them out.
Several times during the Appeal, Judge Hehir and prosecution barrister James Mulholland QC repeated the conclusion of Judge Grey’s ruling in the 2000 Irving vs Penguin Books and Lipstadt libel suit:
Having considered the various arguments advanced by Irving to assail the effect of the convergent evidence relied upon by the defendants, it is my conclusion that no objective, fair-minded historian would have serious cause to doubt that there were gas chambers at Auschwitz, and that they were operated on a substantial scale to kill hundreds of thousands of Jews.
Since then, of course, revisionists such as Germar Rudolf, Carlo Mattogno and Jürgen Graf have provided a wealth of scholarly works showing the total lack of evidence of homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz. As I made clear in court on Tuesday, gas chambers did exist, but these were for purpose of disinfection and protection of inmates from raging typhus epidemics.
Simply put, if orthodox historians wish to retain their academic posts and be granted access to mainstream publishing outlets, then they simply avoid the topic altogether. (During my cross examination, I noted that the Board of Deputies of British Jews was responsible for issuing orders to Amazon to remove a list of revisionist books from its catalogue).
As the IHR’s Mark Weber noted at the time, Judge Grey’s ruling was harsh but predictable and the same is true of Judge Hehir’s rapidly typed-up ruling yesterday. Despite further demonisation of yours truly, my original sentence remains unchanged.
In short, CAA and the authorities are responsible for airing my songs to a wider public and I am therefore grateful for all the free publicity. My case has shed light on the blatant inconsistencies of the orthodox “Holocaust” narrative as well as on the undeniable fact that certain groups are more privileged than others when it comes to freedom of speech and the right to be offensive.
Many thanks to the dozen or so loyal supporters who sat through the hearings. I will write more soon.
