In Great Britain, the enlightened isle that has never quite embraced the concepts of “freedom of speech” and “freedom of association,” is putting four neo-Nazis in jail for being “active members” of the banned group National Action (NA).
Alice Cutter and her former partner Mark Jones, along with Garry Jack and Connor Scothern, appeared at Birmingham crown court, where they were convicted of being members of the group. NA was banned in December 2016 after a series of rallies and incidents that included praising the murder of the MP Jo Cox. Not killing her, mind you. Praising her murder.
Cutter denied that she was an active member of the group as the prosecutor had argued to the court. True, Jurors were shown messages in which she joked about gassing synagogues and using a Jew’s head as a football. Joke! She was joking! But I’d say where she really ran into trouble denying that she was a Neo-Nazi was the fact that she competed in the “Miss Hitler” beauty pageant. Cutter entered the pageant under the catchy name “Buchenwald Princess.”
Führer ? What Führer ?
