Lady Renouf, neo-Nazis and PressTV.
Lady Renouf has been busy recently drumming up support for two rather nasty neo-Nazis, Simon Sheppard and Stephen Whittle. Over at YouTube, sorry no links, I have my limits!
They were apprehended and sentenced, but is worthwhile pondering what type of person would support these disgusting specimens?
Well, Lady Renouf is an acquaintance of that arch “anti-imperialist” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the one time President of Iran and convener of the International Conference to Review the Global Vision of the Holocaust in December 2006. The conference was attended by the creme de la creme, or dregs of the gutter (however, you please) of Holocaust deniers and their neo-Nazi chums, including David Duke, Robert Faurisson, Fredrick Töben, Bradley Smith and Serge Thion.
It should be plain by now that what unites these sorry individuals is not a quest for truth, nor any concern in the Middle East, rather they are motivated by one thing only: a hatred of Jews.
More recently Lady Renouf worked for PressTV, as this exceedingly dodgy Khomeinist web site relates [warning very iffy link]:
“On 14th May the channel duly filmed an interview with the science historian Dr Kollerstrom and a second interview with Lady Renouf, who provided the background regarding the stark contrast between the open democratic approach she had experienced at the Tehran conference, as compared to the tyrannical and closed programme of this year’s government sponsored Berlin conference, where no revisionist was invited – though the conference was supposed to be all about revisionists and their (source) criticism.

There are some photos of her and the then Iranian President on her web site, but I really haven’t the stomach to link to them.
But back to those neo-Nazis, the Indy reports:
“The court was told that the investigation into the men began when a complaint about a leaflet called Tales Of The Holohoax was reported to the police in 2004 after it was pushed through the door of a synagogue in Blackpool.
It was traced back to a post office box in Hull, registered to Sheppard.
Police later found a website featuring racially inflammatory material.
Prosecutors said one leaflet found by officers suggested that Auschwitz was a holiday camp for Jews provided by the Nazis.
Prosecuting, Jonathan Sandiford, said: “The general theme of the article was that Auschwitz-Birkenau was in fact a holiday camp provided by the Nazi regime.
“Jews from all over Europe came to enjoy a free holiday. A constant theme was the Jewish people had made up the story of the Holocaust as a slur on the German people.”
Referring to an article by Whittle, the prosecutor added: “He returned to what appears to be a favourite theme: the notion that black people are not as equal as whites. They are sex-crazed, blood-thirsty savages.
“Black people were caricatured as uncivilised primitive savages portrayed as nothing more than murderers and rapists.” “
Update: I would refer incoherent neo-Nazis, Lady Renouf’s friends and assorted Hitler lovers to my comments policy, in my recent post.
