For whom the Bell tolls…

America is a poorer place this weekend.

On Friday the BBC reported

Pair jailed for web race crimes

Friday, 10 July 2009 18:30 UK

Simon Sheppard and Steven Whittle were incarcerated for four years and 10 months and two years and 4 months for becoming the first in the UK to be convicted of inciting racial hatred via a foreign website.

The pair thought that they could circumvent English law because their website was hosted in the US.
That, said Adil Khan, head of diversity and community cohesion at Humberside Police, makes their conviction a first.

“diversity and community cohesion” – could this be a joke? These men are being imprisoned for expressing an opinion.

(Congratulate Adil Khan on his grasp of English Liberties. I suppose you should be polite.)

(Later VDARE.com note: In the democratic traditions of his homeland, Kahn has apparently disabled his normal email address. Tell the Humberside Police how contemptible they are.)

Very Bad.

The problem for us is that they came to America and appealed for American protection.

Nicholas Stix has documented this. When they fled to America:

Federal Judge Rose Peters, who five years ago prevented the deportation of

Sean O’Cealleagh, who was convicted of aiding and abetting the murder of two British army corporals at an IRA funeral in 1988.

and who has a systematically peculiar history, found the fortitude to flatly reject the plea of Whittle and Sheppard, who were never accused of any violence or indeed of any crime which is a crime in U.S. law.

(Yet.)

What this of course proves is the Judiciary is politicized and no protection when the issue of white nationalism/particularism can be invoked.

As I said on Friday:

Life imprisonment for speeding while Republican

The Bell tolls for thee
