Another vile creature set to stand for UKIP – so why would anyone support it in the Euro-election polls?

Candidates: Carl Benjamin (left) and Mark Meechan (right) are both set to represent UKIP in the European Parliament elections. Two good reasons NOT to vote for that party!

Wow. UKIP’s leaders certainly know how to pick ’em.

Is it the influence of Stephen Yaxley Lennon (stage name: Tommy Robinson)? I don’t know.

After learning that Mark Meechan (stage name: Count Dankula) may be a UKIP candidate in the European Parliament election, we now discover that Carl Benjamin (stage name: Sargon of Akkad) is one of two candidates for the southwest region.

Maybe you don’t think you are familiar with this person’s work; you are probably mistaken.

Remember when Labour MP Jess Phillips revealed she had received many threats, including some of rape and murder? ‘Sargon of Akkad’ was the Twitter user who responded, “I wouldn’t even rape you.” He got thrown off of Twitter for that.

Habitually, his choice of language is appalling. The Sunday Times (I know, but you’ll understand why it seems reliable in this instance) reported that he had used what we now call the “N-word” in a livestream: “You are acting like a bunch of n******, just so you know. You act like white n******.” He used the word again, along with slurs including “Spic”, “Chink”, and “Retard”, in a video.

Oh, and apparently he thinks the age of consent should be negotiable: “Yeah, I think.. it depends on the child really, doesn’t it.. it should really be a case by case basis”.

Visit Zelo Street for the full details.

“We went through an exhaustive process to sift over 190 potential candidates down to those the national executive committee representatives and I felt were most suitable,” according to UKIP leader Gerard Batten.

“This list is based on a number of factors that we felt would select candidates to fight for a real Brexit after the European elections. Ukip’s priority is to have MEPs who will fight to make Brexit happen.”

As far as UKIP’s priorities are concerned, it’s a real eye-opener.

Perhaps it is a reason the party is plummeting in the opinion polls related to the European Parliament election:

Are people getting the message?

I guess we’ll find out at the end of May.

‘Nazi salute’ dog man ‘Count Dankula’ standing for Ukip in Euro election – so they’re BOTH sunk, then

One man and his (Nazi) dog: Mark Meechan, otherwise known as “Count Dankula”, with the dog he taught to Nazi salute when he shouted “Gas the Jews!”

Mark Meechan, the YouTube activist (?) going by the alias “Count Dankula” who was fined £800 for training a dog to do a Nazi salute when he shouted “Gas the Jews!” reckons he’ll be standing for UKIP in the forthcoming EU Parliament elections.

If this is true, I applaud it – it means that UKIP has drifted even further to the political right if it allows a known anti-Semite to become one of its election candidates.

I look forward to seeing both this man and that party sink without a trace.

“Dankula” was recently cut out of a BBC Scotland discussion programme called The Collective after the Corporation received complaints that it was inappropriate to feature a man convicted of an anti-Semitic hate crime.

But the excuse was that he was excised “during the edit process”.

“Dankula” is not only a convicted anti-Semite but also a friend of Stephen Yaxley Lennon, the far-right Islamophobe who is better-known by his stage name “Tommy Robinson”. Funny how they all have aliases, isn’t it?

He shot to infamy over the YouTube clip in which he had trained his girlfriend’s pug to do a Nazi salute while he repeatedly shouted, “Gas the Jews!”

And he dragged Countdown co-host Rachel Riley down with him when she responded to a tweet in which he complained about the possibility of having a GPS tracker attached to him, and being placed under house arrest, with the word “insane”.

The tweet prompted strong responses, although some expressed uncertainty about what Ms Riley meant.

(Further information is available here.)

She has not – to my knowledge – ever clarified the statement in a way that allayed anybody’s fears.

She wants to sue This Writer after I criticised her for ill-treating a teenage girl with anxiety issues who criticised her over her pose as a campaigner against anti-Semitism.

Considering some of the people she supports, it seems clear she hasn’t got a leg to stand on.

BBC announces support for right-wing anti-Semitism by hiring man who taught dog to do Nazi salute

One man and his (Nazi) dog: Mark Meechan, otherwise known as “Count Dankula”, with the dog he taught to Nazi salute when he shouted “Gas the Jews!”

What kind of a person calls himself “Count Dankula”, anyway?

Not a very nice one, to judge by his actions.

Mark Meechan, who is better-known under that bizarre brand, was convicted of an anti-Semitic hate crime last year after he filmed and broadcast a clip of his girlfriend’s dog performing a Nazi salute while he repeatedly shouted, “Gas the Jews!”

Apparently this is not enough to earn him the opprobrium reserved for people on the Left who have had their names mentioned in connection with anti-Semitism.

We had a clear demonstration of that when Rachel Riley, the Countdown co-host who is quick to condemn Labour Party members and supporters she is told are anti-Semitic, spoke up in favour of this “Dankula”:

Now BBC Scotland is giving a platform to this right-wing anti-Semite.

According to reports across the mainstream media, “Count Dankula” will be featured alongside James English – who admitted assaulting and spitting on a woman in 2015 – and dominatrix Megara Furie in a new talk show tackling controversial topics.

https://twitter.com/jamesenglish0/status/1098993043087286272

If you want the full details of this sordid story, visit Evolve Politics.

So we come to the headline on this very article. Do you think it is reasonable to suggest that featuring “Count Dankula” on a BBC programme indicates supporting right-wing anti-Semitism? I do.

As you can see from that piece, the BBC has refused to discuss the amount being paid to “Count Dankula” – which implies that he is at least being paid something.

He would not have been invited to participate in this show if he did not have a reputation as a controversial character, and that reputation is based on the anti-Semitic video clip.

And, whether he is being paid or not, mere exposure to the public of this kind will undoubtedly boost this man’s popularity.

So it seems clear that the BBC is rewarding this man for anti-Semitism. That is support.

We’ve heard supporters of Jeremy Corbyn and high-profile members of Labour who have been linked with false accusations of anti-Semitism have been labelled the “wrong kind of Jew”, to quote an unsavoury phrase.

Are we to conclude that there is now a “right kind of Jew-hater“, to coin an equally-unsavoury phrase?

And what are we to make of BBC coverage of the Labour anti-Semitism row?

How can we trust the BBC’s impartiality when it vilifies left-wingers who face the flimsiest accusations of anti-Semitism – and employs somebody who has been convicted of an anti-Semitic hate crime?

EXTRA: Well, that lasted a long time.

It seems BBC Scotland has dropped “Count Dankula” from its show – called The Collective – claiming his contribution was removed “during the edit process”.

Heaven forbid that BBC executives should actually admit bowing to the will of the public who pay their enormous salaries!

I stand by my words. The decision was made to include a man convicted of anti-Semitic hate crime in a BBC show. Whoever commissioned it knew what he was and so did whoever approved the commission. Weasel words won’t get around that.
