Introduction — March 21, 2018
The Soros funded group, Hope Not Hate is behind a clampdown on books that question what happened in the Holocaust.
Looking and behaving exactly like the fascists they purport to campaign against, Hope Not Hate exemplify the old warning that if fascism ever returns it will be in the guise of “anti-Fascism”, which is exactly what they claim to be.
Despite claiming to fight Fascism, a closer examination of Hope Not Hate reveals that they have attributes of a neo-Fascist Campaign group. Which explains why, on the pretext of curbing extremism, they want some books removed from shops.
Of course, being arch deceivers Hope Not Hate claim that they are not calling for books to be banned but this, in effect, is what it amounts to.
It’s also telling that Hope Not Hate are headed by Nick Lowles MBE. People awarded the MBE don’t get the award for opposing the global empire but rather for aiding it.
Apart from campaigning against books that question what happened in the Holocaust, Hope Not Hate have also campaigned against groups opposed to billionaire financier/activist George Soros. Nor is it a surprise to find that they have also attacked Hungarian patriot Victor Orban, an outspoken critic of Soros and the European Union.
This is 21st century fascism. Guided and controlled by Western intelligence agencies, funded by a billionaire and using deception as its primary weapon, it seeks to silence all those who question the past or stand in the way of a global oligarchy. Ed
Booksellers remove racist and Holocaust denial titles from their websites
Sarah Marsh, Alison Flood — The Guardian March 20, 2018
Major booksellers have been accused of lending a veneer of respectability to antisemitic and neo-Nazi books by featuring them for sale on their websites.
The UK’s largest anti-racist group Hope Not Hate published an investigation into the number of far-right and antisemitic works available to buy on the websites of Waterstones, Foyles, WH Smith and Amazon. These included a manual containing bomb-making instructions, extreme antisemitic tracts venerated by Hitler and numerous works by Holocaust deniers. Many listings have since been removed from the retailers’ websites.
Joe Mulhall, senior researcher at Hope Not Hate, said that the books were discovered on sale during research on Nick Kollerstrom, an English author who is known for Holocaust denial.
“The first thing we could find on Google about him was on Waterstones, so we thought we would investigate to see what else we could find on mainstream seller websites and were shocked by how much we could find,” said Mulhall.
He said that while people have the right to write books others disagree with, companies should not profit from “extreme hate content” and making offensive books available to buy gave them “dangerous” legitimacy.
Calling on the retailers to remove the titles from their sites, Hope Not Hate was joined by MPs including Labour’s Ruth Smeeth, who said that extremist, hate-filled books had no place on the booksellers’ websites. “No one is saying we should ban these books, but why do these high street chains want to give these vile authors the veneer of respectability?” said Smeeth.
Authors Jon McGregor and Sunjeev Sahota also called on the booksellers to address the situation. “These booksellers have earned the high esteem in which they’re held by writers and readers alike. That’s what makes it so important they don’t lend their credibility to these horrifyingly extreme books. Instead, they can make a choice to remove these books from their websites,” said McGregor, who recently won the Costa novel of the year award for Reservoir 13.
Spokespersons for Waterstones, Foyles and WH Smith told the Guardian that they did not stock the books in their shops and that their websites list titles provided through an uncurated feed from Nielsen BookScan, the standard industry database. Waterstones’ managing director James Daunt shared his response to Hope Not Hate with the Guardian. He wrote: “Were any of the books listed by Hope Not Hate to be on our shelves, I would have them removed and apologise. Our website, however, is a simple listing of titles lawfully published and made available through established publishers and distributors … It is not our position to censor this listing beyond the existing measures we take to exclude self-published books that may potentially be offensive.”
Daunt said that he had “complete sympathy” with the campaign group’s objection to Waterstones profiting from the sale of such books, but said that “in practice, we sell very few books of this sort” and any respectability gained by the books being sold on Waterstones’ website would be “unintended and regretted”.
Foyle’s chief executive Paul Currie also shared his response to Hope Not Hate with the Guardian. “After researching the examples given in your paper, we’ve found that the overwhelming majority of authors and titles listed are not available to order from our website – they simply appear as bibliographic records. We do not stock these titles on our shelves, or promote them to our customers,” he wrote.
