    New British Laws to Criminalise Political Dissent

    New British Laws to Criminalise Political Dissent

    23rd August 2006


    In the last few weeks the entire nature of the laws that regulate the internet have fundamentally changed. Though the Police have long had the power to prosecute people for their actions on the Internet they have in the past been unwilling to do so. This policy began to change last year when individuals were prosecuted and jailed for posting information on a website that was considered to be part of a campaign of racial harassment.

    Since then two individuals have been charged with crimes related specifically to posting illegal information on the internet. Mr. Simon Sheppard has been charged with ten counts of "Incitement to Racial Hatred" and Mr. Luke O'Farrell with two counts even though the website of Mr. Sheppard is hosted in the United States. This means that those individuals who post information on forums, bulletin boards and websites hosted in the US, can now be prosecuted for incitement to racial hatred, incitement to violence and glorification of terrorism in the United Kingdom.

    The time limit on the nature of what is considered as ‘ terror ‘ is not specified, so includes those who glorify the 1916 Easter Uprising , the Bolshevik Revolution , the Nazi era and Islamist violence worldwide.

    Glorification

    This law also covers those who wish to propagate and encourage political activities and actions that are based on following the methodology of those groups that used terror in the past as part of their political programmes.

    Therefore those that seek to encourage people to follow the political methodology of political movements linked with violence and terrorism as defined by the CPS and the Attorney General, such as Islamic terrorism and Nazism, as part of a contemporary political programme, or who glorify or encourage such political methodology as part of a contemporary political programme, will now be under the scope of the law. It is not what ordinary people think, it is how the politically motivated operatives of the Labour government, the senior police chiefs, the CPS and the courts decide how the law should be applied.

    No actions have to have taken place in order for the law to be triggered, all that needs to happen is that the words used can be seen as encouraging or glorification of violence such as against an ethnic group or religion. This includes the encouragement of people to follow political ideologies based on violence or that use violence as part of their political methodology.

    In effect this law bans the promotion, glorification and encouragement of political ideologies that in the past have used violence, or applied violence, as part of their political programmes. It also applies to those political ideologies that have used violence as an integral part of its methodology or whose actual social and political manifestation would result in violence against groups in society. The nature of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism are not defined and therefore include those that follow a political ideology with the intent that upon gaining power acts of terrorism directed against specific groups will follow.

    Indirect encouragement

    Indirect encouragement statements include every statement which glorifies the commission or preparation (whether in the past, in the future or generally) of terrorism and therefore includes those who promulgate ideologies that have used violence in the past and who would use violence in the future. As the definition of commission or preparation of terrorism is not defined, it can include taking part in the political process itself if the ideology being followed has its basis in violence or been linked to violence in the past. It can also apply to those followers of violent historical ideologies who use non-violent means today in order to take power but whose ideology is rooted in terror in the past and also whose attainment of power would result in violence in the future.

    The new laws on ‘ Encouragement and Glorification of Terrorism ‘ under Section 1 of the Terrorism Act 2006 include the crime of Encouragement of terrorism (section 1): This prohibits the publishing of "a statement that is likely to be understood by some or all of the members of the public to whom it is published as a direct or indirect encouragement or other inducement to them to the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism or Convention offences." Indirect encouragement statements include every statement which glorifies the commission or preparation (whether in the past, in the future or generally) of such acts or offences; and is a statement from which those members of the public could reasonably be expected to infer that what is being glorified is being glorified as conduct that should be emulated by them in existing circumstances." The maximum penalty is seven years' imprisonment.

    Disseminating terrorist publications (Section 2): Prohibits the dissemination of a publication which is either (a) likely to be understood as directly or indirectly encouraging terrorism, or (b)includes information which likely to be understood as being useful in the commission or preparation of an act of terrorism. The maximum penalty is seven years' imprisonment.

    Monitoring

    We now know that a dedicated team of officers within the Police are actively monitoring and compiling information on those who run and post on various websites for future prosecution. The BNP cannot and will not tolerate any member who posts information on the internet that breaches race relations legislation or who facilitates the posting of such information on the internet. Facilitation can also be interpreted as moderation on sites where illegal information is being posted, or assisting sites where illegal information is being posted, or assisting or moderating on internet sites.

    As a result of this new law the Internet will be used for entrapment, infiltration by paid security agitators mainly to destabilize and criminalize legitimate political organisations that follow and abide by the law. Our members are advised of these important changes in the law and that the luxury of expressing individual opinions on various public and visible forums must be balanced by their responsibility and loyalty towards the greater good of the party.

    This statement is so inclusive that the only historical and contemporary movement it leaves out is that of the Dalai Lama. This, coupled with the new law in the States making an act perpetrated here illegal if it goes against the laws of another nation, shows just how out of hand things are becoming. What's next? Criminalizing speaking out against the tastiness of cauliflower?

    Ah yes, closer and closer we gravitate towards an Orwellian environment of mindcrime and complete enforced obedience.

    Also, those who speak out against the tastiness of cauliflower need to be prosecuted anyway, bloody dissidents

    To further expand on my thoughts on this, I find it to be yet another dangerous step on the road to having all our liberties and freedoms quenched. This is getting more and more ridiculous. First we lose gun rights, then Scotland bans all swords except for ceremonial and religious, now we've lost the ability to speak out and call for action against our corrupt government, next they'll start rounding white people up and putting them in internment camps for racial re-education.
    A rebirth is coming, the Thulean Phoenix shall arise from the ashes of the Third Reich, empowered and inflamed by the wrongs levied against our people since the fall of German National Socialism. Prepare yourselves, Folk of Thule, our time is nigh.
