If a father who is suffering the worst pain imaginable can still respect his son’s views and separate his personal feelings towards his son’s killer from the wider implications of legal reform, then everyone else can fall in line and respect his wishes.
Boris Johnson said he was heartbroken in reaction to the news some members of the public had succumbed to their injuries. I thought it was an odd choice of words, devastated perhaps, despairing even but heartbroken? One must be in possession of a heart for it to break. When we are heartbroken we do not have the energy to threaten punitive action, vengeance is the last thing on our minds. The heartbroken are defeated not emboldened. Johnson was inspired by this event and sprang into action, prompting many to consider this incident a false flag operation, especially given he was already known to security services and was being monitored.
How does a brown chap (considering the ways in which beige and brown people are frequently accosted in the street even when they’re minding their own business doing the shopping, for eg) with a bomb vest (nobody knew it was fake) and a knife taped to his hand manage to evade the cameras that are dotted every few yards in London (never mind London Bridge which is set up to withstand terrorist attacks with increased security; blast guards around the tube station, including additional CCTV)? He had an electronic tag which I presume means he was in constant contact with the probation service who would surely have noticed a change in his behaviour? There are too many holes in this story.
David Merritt’s words are particularly poignant because he has proved himself to be a man of principal, who cannot be swayed even when it personally impacts on him. He is a true hero who thinks about others, even to his own detriment. His son was a credit to him and I share a small part of his pain, to lose someone who was intrinsically good and protected the underdog (in his dad’s own words) in a world where such qualities are in short supply is a tragedy, and I grieve for him.
RIP Jack Merritt, thank you for all that you did.
After the NZ terror attacks, platforms like YouTube could no longer afford to ignore the risk that Kiwi Farms posed and the account was banned. Whereas social media bosses were pushed to removing footage of the attack filmed by the NZ terrorist, Moon refused and told authorities to go jump. He has proven to the world he is a threat to vulnerable people but also he has no boundaries, he revelled in the slaughter of innocent worshippers and encouraged others to do the same.
Odd then that it appears Joshua Moon has reinstated his YouTube account, with over 2000 followers subscribed to it.
YouTube has shown a lack of care and consideration for the victims of the NZ terror attacks and all potential future victims. If nazi incels like Moon are allowed to spread their hate via mainstream channels despite criminal activity, we cannot feign ignorance when they strike again.
Moon can also be found here https://dlive.tv/KiwiFarms. We are hoping to initiate a dialogue with Dlive.tv to make them aware of just who it is they are hosting. In a civilised society there is no place for the vile meanderings of a nazi incel who is connected with multiple murders and suicides and a network of white supremacist terrorists from the Americans to the Antipodeans.
Joshua Moon is quoted as saying ”I have begged my mother and my therapist to sleep with me out of desperation” on his forum. This creature has no sense of right and wrong.
Here’s a podcast analyzing the paedophilia promotion of Joshua Conner Moon.
Despite our many requests for BitChute host Ray Vahey to ban Moon from his application, he continues to ignore us. You can find him on Twitter and ask him why he thinks this is ok.
According to News.com.au, Australia’s number one news website which reaches over 9.5 million Australians:
“Before he founded Kiwi Farms, Moon was sacked as an administrator for 8chan for allegedly promoting paedophilia. He is notorious for his online stalking and harassment campaigns, which have featured threats to “rape, murder and dismember” his mainly female victims. In 2016, Moon was linked to a series of online threats to harm children in Florida, where he shares a home with his mother, forcing dozens of schools into lockdown.”
You can see this quote at:
See the following articles on Joshua Conner Moon and his promotion of the Christchurch terrorist attack:
There is no grey area here. If you allow Joshua Conner Moon a platform on your service you are enabling his abhorrent criminal ventures. In the UK we have a joint enterprise law which means you can be criminalised for just being involved, even if you did not have a direct hand in it.
Joshua Conner Moon and his hate site Kiwi Farms have finally been banned by Youtube. Following months if not years of reporting abuse to the site by various targets of Moon, myself included (they posted an hour long radio clip in which they discussed using an angle grinder on my vagina), it would appear in the wake of the New Zealand terror attacks, YouTube could no longer defend the right for nazis to use their platform for the proliferation of nazi propaganda, hate crimes and cyber bullying. This was long overdue, Kiwi Farms had many thousands of dedicated followers on their YouTube channel and this loss is sure to sting but the question remains; why did it take so long? The damage is already done in some respects.
New Zealand have gone one step further and banned the hate forum Kiwi Farms in their country. As easy as that. Of course this is easily bypassed used a VPN, as Moon frequently advises his followers around anonymity and slipping a finger to the authorities. No, what needs to happen is for Kiwi Farms to be erased from the face of the planet (along with all the chan spin offs), for American authorities to be held to account by all other nations who’ve suffered as a result. Moon likes to suggest all of his activities are legal in his hellscape home nation and judging by the state of their legal system and beyond, who can say? From a moral standpoint, encouraging acts of terror, hosting them, stalking and harassing vulnerable communities, goading them to suicide, discussing in detail sick paedophilic fantasies and intentions to carry them out, well, it should be illegal and I’m surprised, given all the conventions and treaties following various holocausts, these matters are at all up for debate.
We have to be willing to accept the people who are bankrolling and protecting Nazis go right to the very top of western society. They are aristocrats and bankers and WASPS and ‘community leaders’, they have access to the media and tech industry, they monetise the social media giants, and line the palms of judges and police authorities. How is it that a man who taught his dog nazi salutes is being legitimised by a supposed political party (that has failed at every stage despite primetime promotion by the BBC and countless ill fated resurrections, only to face yet another day) and allowed to stand as a political candidate for a member of the European parliament on behalf of a party that wants out of the European Union? We are well and truly down the rabbit hole here folks.
Joshua Conner Moon says he is raising money with Uphold now. He’s also getting over $1000 a month on madattheinternet.com using authorize.net. It’s a bit of a stretch to imagine these services are not aware of Moon and his hate driven activities. As far as I’m aware we had previously given Uphold a heads up and they had banned Moon so I’m wondering what’s changed. Perhaps they thought we were no longer keeping an eye on things and quietly reinstated him. For whatever it’s worth we will not be taking the pressure off until all mentions of Joshua Conner Moon and Kiwi Farms are erased from the cyberverse. Let there be only cautionary tales and scathing takedowns of nazis in their place.
As a curious sidenote, I’m wondering what it will take for the international community to intervene in this matter. It doesn’t take a helluva lot for the US or UK to poke its nose in the business of sovereign nations it does not see as a militaristic threat, under the guise of human rights and aide for civilians caught up in wars not of their making and yet here we are, in a supposedly developed nation trying to hold back the tide of creeping nazism for at least the past decade and nobody in the entire world has reached out to us in this time of need. They should be offering us refuge. They should be threatening sanctions.
Financial assets of hate figures should be frozen. They should be grounded, unable to travel, to curb the flow of propaganda. Laws must be introduced to further ensure safety of protected characteristics, as current legislation falls so woefully short. Hate forums must be banned, no ifs no buts.

You may or may not have heard about the threatening letters sent to Muslim MPs and homes across the UK calling for a day of violent attacks against Muslims. The letters, entitled ‘Punish a Muslim Day’, feature a table awarding points for violent acts such as verbally abusing a Muslim for 10 points to butchering a Muslim for 500. It goes without saying many people are feeling scared and unsure of what to do or who to turn to.
The authorities are aware of the threat and are said to be investigating but let’s be honest, can we really trust the authorities to have our back? Organisations like Tell Mama have made us aware of a whatsapp message doing the rounds which is advising Muslims to stay at home on April 3rd, the date given by the perpetrators for their hateful day of action. However Tell Mama are suggesting we treat it just like any other day, and not succumb to the fear mongering, as though we have a choice.
Just recently Mark Rowley the former assistant Met commissioner warned that National Action was proving to be an organised threat of which the likes have never been seen before and the public should be ‘gravely concerned’. He said this shortly before stepping down from his role in counter terrorism policing. This certainly fits their MO. National Action, a hate group proscribed in December of last year, are the first far right extremist group to have been banned under terror legislation. Far right white supremacist groups account for 1/3 of all the case work undertaken by the counter terrorism unit. Do we really feel safe enough to keep calm and carry on in the face of such a threat? It’s easy enough to advise people to rise above the violence promised to them if you personally feel safe under the state’s watchful eye but for many of us, we have seen firsthand how the state enables threats like these to propagate through their wilful inaction. They actively promote racial discord, citing cultural reasons as an excuse for why they didn’t do their jobs investigating abuse of white working class minors.
I reported racism a few years back and not only did the police deny any laws had been broken they went on to threaten me for my political beliefs. I hadn’t made any direct threats, just used a vague generalised statement said by many thousands of women before me, but they decided it negated the many racialised threats to kill and rape made against me. I am one of countless victims of police negligence, they are not my saviours, never mind in matters of racialised violence. It is irresponsible for any organisation to advise marginalised folk to ignore their gut instincts to protect themselves and their loved ones and throw themselves out there. These are our lives at stake, we have no sense of English superiority to bolster our confidence in the state. We aren’t here for the blitz spirit. We can’t keep calm and carry on when disgusting white males sexually assault Muslim looking women in the streets. We shouldn’t have to rise above the abuse meted out to our children. I am not too proud to admit I am frightened for my life, I’ve been like this for years but the fear has escalated because I’m worried for my neighbours, my community, people I’ve never met before.
I am forced to think of Bosnia, the Rohingya, Muslims who’ve been systematically targeted and killed by organised militias with very little intervention by the state, because the state arms them and lets them organise but keeps a safe enough distance so as to deny any culpability when it is all done. Why hasn’t the state called Cobra? Imagine if white people were put at risk in this way? We are not just Muslims, we are British citizens, we pay our taxes and yet..
Until the authorities; the police, the state, make a point of condemning white supremacy and the enablers, the Farages and Hopkins, the lefties and liberals, this looming threat will consume us. Until they make a stand, we can only do our best to protect ourselves. Tell your loved ones that fascism isn’t dead, whatever the liberals might say. Trust your gut not theirs. Stay at home on April 3rd and remain vigilant. Doing your job, making money, none of that means anything if you’re dead or disfigured for life.
“Sorry, I know it is really terrible and fucked up that so many people got arrested yesterday, but please don’t compare this police response to the rise of Nazism or make lazy claims of ‘creeping fascism’. It’s offensive, shows a complete misunderstanding of what ‘fascism’ is, and totally disorients any opposition to racism or police aggression.”
A person, presumably a white male (based on the information I was able to glean) said this about a piece I wrote regarding my fears that fascism was on the rise in Great Britain last year when the far right mobilised in response to the murder of Lee Rigby. My fears felt real, I wasn’t being sensationalist to bring in the readers; I had been at a demo (the last of many) where white supremacists were given the time and space to spout their hateful ideology, bringing terror to the people of the area they targeted; Tower Hamlets (whilst multicultural it is known for its large Bangladeshi community). The police responded violently to the people attempting to protect the area, not the fascists who were being abusive in their language and threats to kill. 286 comrades were arrested that day; among them innocent members of the public who were not permitted to protest their innocence, they were kettled and led onto waiting buses, their hands bound together with cable ties. To me, the horror of went down that day (bail conditions forbidding any contact between arrestees and any right wing fascist group within the M25) felt like the beginnings of a regime where powers could be made up on the spot and this was a frightening thought when remembering the past. It’s a slippery slope right?
There was also the time (almost a year ago in fact, 22nd June) this friendly fella took objection to my white best friend slapping a white man on a packed bus for calling me a Paki. This one slap was (apparently) the beginning of the end of all white male supremacists and my friend and I deserved to be harassed and slandered for daring to defend ourselves. Nobody seemed to care about the sexual harassment that led to us telling these two entitled menz to back off (politely at first), nor the toxic shaming racist abuse they subjected us to. No, WE had gone too far this time. I knew at the time this was in fact the beginning of unchallenged casual racism.
I tried to report someone to the police for openly gloating about a racist attack on a mosque but I was silenced when they assumed my motivation was my religion. Being an atheist I refused to engage with people who were already racially profiling me. If the case had ever gone to court one search on Google would reveal Helen Lewis’ lies about me. I felt exposed and manipulated but I wasn’t to complain cos that meant I was self-obsessed and only after a meeja deal. I even wrote this to explain how vulnerable I was feeling.
The Left has systematically shut down the voices that challenge their very problematic beliefs (for lefties they are incredibly bigoted). This means most women of colour, women like me (anyone who is not white and wealthy actually). When I challenged them I was silenced and ridiculed and then thrown to the White Knights of Twitter who have called me every dirty paki bitch under the sun. People like Graham Linehan made this ok. His response to racist abuse against me was to mock me, not once acknowledging the words “paki” or “cunt” but instead fighting for the honour of that other model of white supremacist feminism, Caitlin Moran. Academics like Becca Reilly Cooper accused us of doing it for the kudos and ruining The Left but didn’t see the irony in her very right wing threats to sue anyone who utters her name (come at me).
(Have you noticed how white everybody is yet?)
The line between The Left and the Stupid Right was blurred even more when Louise Mensch got involved. There was no difference in how I was targeted by either side. The same patterns emerged; often these people mention my name but block me before I can challenge them. Their intention is the same; to silence me with outright racist, sexist, ableist abuse from the white majority of this land. I said last year that all of their actions were structurally racist; that you don’t need to say the Paki word to be racist. The very least I expected from people on this side of the political fence was to be heard. They could have told me I was wrong and I might even have listened but they never had any intention of living by their socialist ideas, they really are just pretending to be something because it’s trendy. They’re like political hipsters.
(Reminder: Helen Lewis was on a Channel4 news piece suggesting that the abuse WOC receive is down to class and not race. Wish someone had thought to ask a WOC that question)
Of course I hope I am wrong here but when future generations ask how it was possible that so many non-white people were terrorised and murdered by the English (this century), the answer will be the same as it was for Nazi Germany. The liberals and lefties let it happen. They allowed for the kind of rhetoric that othered anyone who was not able, wealthy and white. They lied about why it was happening; it’s not class war, Helen, it’s white supremacy.
..It’s the kind of white supremacy that speaks to white women about issues that affect non-white women in hijabs, not considering that they may be the experts here on account of living it. You don’t need to be a *something* to have an opinion ok?
..It’s because they abandoned anti-fascist actions at a time when the fascist right was growing exponentially.
..Or the fact they were given a platform so we knew exactly why they were hating on other humans, as if we didn’t already know.
..It’s the air time given to actual outright Nazis by the allegedly Left biased UKIP channel (sorry, BBC).
..How about the way ‘race is not a feminist issue’ (a white leftie feminist slogan)? Even though white supremacists routinely target women in attacks, pulling their clothes from them, mocking them for being ugly, hairy, mannish.
..Why would any of The Left lend support to me on the back of a few intense weeks of horrific racial bullying and death threats? Where my bank account was hacked and attempts made on my social networking accounts. Where people responded in earnest to questions posed my someone imitating me “I’m a pakigirl and I smell. Should my boyfriend dump me?” (or something) Where was the outrage for people like me?
..What about the focus on Muslims/Jews cruelly murdering animals when of course being bashed in the head and then having your throat sliced open is like well humane? Of course this issue needs to be drummed home by the BBC who couldn’t give the NHS the same attention but y’know, leftie bias.
..There was the time white feminism focused on sex selective abortions (a non-white problem apparently) which deserved our attention more than the sex selective IVF favoured in the west. Not racist though right? Not about denying non-white women the rights to their own reproductive health. Pro-choice but only for white ladies.
..Rape, right, it’s an Indian problem. Maybe it happens in The Congo too. But it definitely doesn’t happen in the same way here. Our rapists just aren’t as rapey as the non-white ones. The Asians, they even prey on young girls, like their prophet. Jimmy Saville just wasn’t as dedicated as the grooming gangs of Bradford.
..There are good immigrants and there are bad immigrants, right? If you jump through enough hoops (a 70hr working week (for no pay), making personal contributions into the system without indefinite leave to remain or any of the rights that affords a citizen, eyes cast downwards at all times, especially when there is a white person passing) then someone might pick you as their token Asian pet. This privilege may be whisked from underneath your feet at a minutes notice though. Don’t start getting uppity; know your place in this structure.
We’re expected to take all of this without objection. We’re to accept the unspoken notion that no part of this land (or the lands stolen from us) belongs to us, that we are not entitled to the same level of basic respect and recognition of human rights because we’re not descended from Vikings. We are expected to live with the constant fear of displacement (because we’re not worthy)? Our allies and comrades said and did all of these things. Farage and the other Nazis are just bolstered by the general support of white English people regardless of their claimed political allegiances. Theresa May now has powers to strip British citizens of their citizenship if they so much as suspect terrorism. But.. They already suspect every non-white person of this. How on earth was this bill allowed to pass without so much of a fanfare from the leftie press? Could it be perhaps because the leftie press is focused on dehumanising and othering groups of people they do not like? Trans women for example?
Nazi Germany happened because the Germans were concerned only with themselves. Under the guise of socialism (alarm bells) they convinced an entire nation that the Jews were vermin. Just like our socialists have been doing this past year about us. It was as Pastor Niemoller said.
We would all do well to remember the past because if we forget, we are doomed to repeat it.
*This is how and why
It’s about the pregnant 21 year old Muslim woman who was beaten so savagely, her foetus was stillborn.
It’s about the 18 year old activist Clement Meric, beaten so badly he was left brain dead.
It’s about the young woman from the North of England knocked unconscious when she was attacked from behind.
It’s about the Muslim boarding school that was burnt down whilst the boys lay sleeping. Two of them were treated for smoke inhalation.
It’s about the 78 year old grandmother beaten for being brown and defenceless.
It’s about my comrades; black, white, Asians, Jews, queer, trans* and everything in between.
It’s about protecting them from Nazi/police brutality.
It’s about the state questioning my motives for reporting malicious communication regarding Muslims and suggesting my offence was borne from my religion. I have repeatedly told them I am an atheist.
It’s because we are brown and not white British that we cannot respond to YouGov polls questioning the threat against the ‘indigenous’ population. Personally, my 31 years of citizenship mean nothing.
It’s when they ask how British Muslim communities can protect themselves, not how they will ban the fascists hurting them.
It’s about my little nieces and nephews and their futures. I wish them long lives.
It’s about the focus on braaaahn perpetrators and paedophiles whilst the white ones get away with 15 months in prison cos 13 victims aren’t as serious as Savile’s 1300.
It’s about the soldiers who sexually abused minors in Afghanistan but escaped punishment because of the effect on THEIR families. What about the minors and their families?
It’s about the solider who punched a woman in the face but escaped punishment just because he’s an outstanding soldier otherwise. That’d be murdering civilians I guess.
It’s about the systematic rape and abuse perpetrated by Western forces in countries around the world.
It is about the value of a white life compared to the valueless non-whites.
It’s about changing our names, wearing their clothes, eating their food and still being rejected for not being white enough.
It’s about the fascists’ right to protest. It’s about the police facilitating hate.
It’s about people of colour being openly racially abused on our transport system. No fear of reprisal from their attackers but a sense of entitlement.
It’s the fact that police are reporting 8 Islamophobic attacks a day where there was previously 1. Why didn’t we nip it in the bud?
It’s about reverse racism and the audacity of white people to suggest we control their lives in the same way they control ours. This denial of power and control dynamics is offensive.
It’s about the way whole communities of non-whites are treated as a hive whereas white people are individuals.
It’s about the systematic monstering of non-white men whilst white men are free to abuse women and children and retain their hordes of adoring fans.
It’s about the accusations those in power throw at us; that somehow we’re just doing it for the kudos, instead of defending the right for everyone to live a non-threatening life.
It’s about the ease with which WoC are erased from the narrative, by painting them as delusional, hateful and provocative. Cos of course, we don’t ever tell the truth.
It’s about the abuse women in hijabs suffer. Somehow they are more controlled and oppressed for covering their bodies. Uncover yours and see them blame you for your own rape.
It’s about the white men attacking women in hijabs. Clearly the men are too much of a challenge.
It’s about those non-whites so desperate for acceptance that they support the oppressor. Token non-whites need help.
It’s about the way the media do not report the impending threat to non-whites everywhere.
It’s about the way terrorism has been defined as an act of defiance against the white majority. When non-whites are terrorised, they are simply being hated for who they are.
It’s about the way they sneer at you for ‘attention seeking’. Damn right I am seeking to draw attention to the unacceptable systems of control we are under in this godforsaken world. Solidarity with all likeminded activists.
It’s about the parallels modern day Britain draws with genocides of yesteryear. The dehumanisation of groups of peoples.
It’s about our ‘comrades’ allying themselves with people who wish us dead. No platform for bigots, ever.
It’s about the way victims are required to be humble and vulnerable to establish their victimhood. Defending oneself makes you just as bad as the other. Erm no, doesn’t work like that.
It’s about the accountability all Muslims face for uttering the words “Allahu Akbar”. Can’t see us asking the same of the queen when the fascists sing her anthem.
It’s about the way we are dismissed for being educated middle class academics on the fringes of actual people of colour’s lived experiences. Couldn’t be more wrong could they?
It’s about the everyday murder, rape, brutality faced by those considered subhuman by the white people in power.
It’s about feeling the pain of others who share the colour of your skin, your sex, your environment.
If you don’t understand that, then you are part of the problem.
