UK far-right and Pittsburgh
FAR-RIGHT WEBSITES that rally to the cause of former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson are littered with the same antisemitic dogwhistles used by neo-Nazi Robert Bowers, who carried out the Pittsburgh atrocity.
Name-checking the Jewish billionaire philanthropist “George Soros” and using the term “globalist” to describe an establishment conspiracy has become a core tactic for far-right extremists.
British supporters of organisations such as the Democratic Football Lads Alliance and users of pro-Tommy Robinson news-sites such as Rebel Media and The Reality Report also use similar language on broadcasts and internet chat rooms.
The JC discovered a video published by The Reality Report — a hugely popular news site for far-right supporters in the UK — which included attacks by one individual named Celtic Warrior on the “Zionist-created leftist movement that despises traditional Christian family values and morals”.
The post appeared underneath a report alleging that the Metropolitan Police “mishandled” a march on October 13 by the Democratic Football Lads Alliance, which was quoted stating that attacks on the march had come from “George Soros-financed Communist thugs.”
While much of the content revolved around the claim that Muslims have destroyed traditional English culture, it was also made clear that the Jews or the “Globalists” were held largely to blame.
