The Springbok Club’s Favourite “Maid” and a Neo-Nazi Website

Edmund Standing at I Kid You Not has cast an eye over a piece by pro-BNP blogger “Sarah Maid of Albion”, who is complaining about YouTube “censoring” (i.e. declining to host) extremist videos:

In attempting to prove her point, ‘Sarah’ links to ‘another story from the USA‘. The story, it turns out, is found on a website called ‘Newsnet14’. ‘Newsnet14’ describes itself as ‘an online resource for people of European descent around the world’ and considers itself an alternative to ‘Zionist media mongers’

The short article (more like a blog entry) recommended by “Sarah” is an attack on the Anti-Defamation League, and its author informs us as an aside that Jews control pornography. The article also includes a hyperlink to Resist, which Standing notes is “home of none other than Tom Metzger of ‘White Aryan Resistance'”. It should also be noted that Newsnet14 is registered to “Aryan Wear”, purveyor of “skinhead boots, nazi boots, swastika boots, skinhead shirts, nazi shirts, white pride clothing…”, etc. etc – further details here.

However, although Standing is unimpressed with “Sarah”, the “Maid of Albion” has one fan: none other than Alan Harvey, who has reproduced an anti-Mandela screed written by her on the website of the Springbok Club, with a gushing introduction that praises her discernment when it comes to media:

This excellent article appeared on the blog of Sarah, an Englishwoman endowed with an incisive and razor-sharp understanding of South Africa’s recent history. Unlike so many millions of brain-washed lemmings in the UK, she sees right through the media-contrived smoke & mirrors, lies and myths.

Although Harvey is firmly pro the Israeli right-wing, the “Maid of Albion” is not the only person he recommends who has promoted anti-Jewish propagandists. As I noted a few days ago, Harvey is also a supporter of Clive Derby-Lewis, who once hosted David Irving in South Africa.

  1. It may, or may not, interest you to know that I have left the following comment on the “I kid you not” blog:

    If you would be so good as to direct me to any main stream news site which publishes the fact that YouTube is cooperating with the ADL in order remove so called hate speech from its archives, I would be happy to link to it.

    However, I suspect that you will find, as I did that it is almost impossible to trace any mention of this in the heavily self censored main stream media.

    I linked to a story on a news site. you will also find links on my blog to the Daily Mail and the New York Times, and I am certainly not in the business of promoting either. You will also find links to the UAF, does that make me a Communist or Stalinist, because some of their supporters are?.

    Furthermore, I take the view that efforts to censor so called “Hate speech” are merely cynical attempts to stifle free speech, because it is inevitably the self appointed censors who determine what constitutes “hate speech” and equally importantly what does not.

    The use of the term hate speech, like the multi purpose “R” words “racist” and “racism” are nothing more that political devices designed to intimidate people and silence any opposition to very political aims.

    I, for one, am no longer prepared to be bullied by such words.

    I would also point out that I am not a member of the BNP, not an active supporter. I have a link to them because I agree with some of their aims, however, I also have a link to the DRC Congo appeal, where exactly does that leave your analysis?.

    I also support gay rights, closer ties with Europe and action to curb climate change, and have actively done so on my blog. Does my link to Newslink14 somehow suggest that they are fascist anti Semite aspirations as well?.

    You are intitled to your views, and you express them interestingly, but I would respectfully suggest that you grow up.

  2. If you would be so good as to direct me to any main stream news site which publishes the fact that YouTube is cooperating with the ADL in order remove so called hate speech from its archives, I would be happy to link to it.

    Google “ADL” + “YouTube”. Top hits are stories on the subject in the Jerusalem Post and Haaretz. There was also a press release.

  3. Thank you,

    I shall add those links to the “offending” post this evening.

    It is interesting to note that it is Haaretz and the Jerusalem press who are the only people reporting what I was saying, yet I am accused of anti-semitism.

    I may disagree with the writers as I oppose censorship in all forms my attack was on that not on any religion.

    Indeed, if to criticise extremists such as the ADL is an attack on “Jews” then criticism of the Westboro Baptists is an attack on Christianity!

  4. If it can be proven that “Sarah, Maid of Albion” harbours anti-Semitic sentiments and/or is connected to the Hitlerite BNP, then her article will definitely be removed from the SC web-site – but we need proof.

  5. To London Swinton Circle,

    With respect the fact that you refer to the BNP as “Hitlerite” says more about you than it does about them.

    I am not a member of the BNP as I do not agree with them on many issues, however, I believe that uncontrolled immigration is one of the greatest threats to fabric of our society, and that the BNP are the only people prepared to tell the truth on the subject. Certainly the Conservatives are not.

    I have a link to the BNP news site on my blog, and am a guest contributor to the Green Arrow which is a BNP supporting site.

    You must make your decision based on that information.

    My articles on Mandela have been published on many websites from California to Khasacstan, so they will continue to be read.

  6. I’m afraid that we’d need some firmer evidence – far more evidence – to confirm that the “Sarah” who wrote this latest posting is actually one and the same person as “Sarah, Maid of Albion” who wrote the original excellent article. If she is then she should investigate the so-called BNP in a lot more detail, for if she does then she will find that beneath the innocent-sounding name there is some vile poison lurking below.

  7. […] Swinton Circle” is also perturbed by my pointing out that the Springbok Club website carries an essay attacking Nelson Mandela, by […]

  8. Comment removed from “Isaac Jacobs” – I’m not carrying comments that appear to be personally intrusive for no good reason.
