Dissident Musician and British Nationalist Alison Chabloz Arrested for a Song

Dissident Musician and British Nationalist Alison Chabloz Arrested for a Song

Published: 2016-11-20

To say that UK police handling of online abuse is inconsistent is something of an understatement. In particular, these inconsistencies are highlighted in the case of British musician, Alison Chabloz, who shot to fame after performing a “quenelle” salute at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2015. Chabloz was again in the news during this year’s Fringe after her show was pulled for being “too political”.

Alison Chabloz

Victim of targeted harassment and abuse from vicious, pro-Israel “advocates” as well as from a host of anonymous Hasbara “Ziotrolls” and assorted Leftist, liberal “social justice warriors”, Chabloz was recently informed by her local police force in Derbyshire that their investigation for malicious communications and harassment regarding this online abuse against Chabloz had been closed. The investigation began earlier this year after Chabloz had received several unwanted postal deliveries, including anonymous birthday and Christmas cards as well as several sales catalogues (e.g. for reinforced doors and blinds) addressed to her in a derogatory manner.

Ten days after receiving news of the now closed case, Chabloz was arrested by local police in an investigation involving two other forces. She was questioned and detained for six hours – more than two hours spent locked in a cell – learning on her release at midnight that during this time police had raided her domicile and seized her laptop.

Chabloz’ hate crime, allegedly, concerns both her 15-month old ” quenelle” as well as songs performed at London’s Grosvenor Hotel last September during a meeting of The London Forum.

Asides the allegation of incitement, Chabloz was also arrested and questioned on suspicion of online harassment of two of her critics.

Chabloz’ solicitor said no evidence of any such harassment was presented during the interview.

In fact, as early as 2014, Chabloz had been advised by the Musicians’ Union to report to police after being fired by Carnival Group for a satirical tweet posted six months before she began working for the company.

Both in the above case along with several other subsequent incidents of online harassment, including death threats and further attempts to prevent Chabloz from performing, Derbyshire police failed to take appropriate action against the perpetrators.

With her laptop now in police hands, Chabloz’ gigs are on hold because the device contains all her sheet music, backing tracks and software vital for her performances. Chabloz’ solicitor has submitted a legal request to try and recuperate the device and a mobile phone also seized.

Chabloz has been bailed till January 12 pending a decision by the Crown Prosecution Service.

As well, November 19, Chabloz received a court summons to appear in front of Westminster Magistrates Court in a private prosecution brought against her by Gideon Falter, director of UK registered “charity” Campaign Against Antisemitism. Falter accuses Chabloz of using social media to cause offense in breach of the 2003 Communications Act after Chabloz posted a video of her song (((Survivors))) on YouTube. The song has gained over six million – sorry, six thousand views views so far.

The hearing will take place at 10am on December 15

WARMAN SEEKS TO PUNISH YOUR WARD NEWS ADVERTISER

WARMAN SEEKS TO PUNISH YOUR WARD NEWS ADVERTISER
Canada’s great free speech champion, the late Doug Christie, explained the vile method of prosecuting freethinkers thus:  “Demonize, isolate, then criminalize.” It works like this:An individual is targetted usually by the Zionist lobby or the radical homosexual lobby. The conformist mainstream media moves in like piranas on steroids. The victim is demonized in a series of  hyperventilating articles of “news” (actually opinion rants) reports filled with weaponized words or defamation: “neo-Nazi”, “racist,” “White supremacist”, “holocaust denier.” The public may not fully understand these words and the victim may not identify himself as such, but the public knows the words mean he’s “bad”.
 
Now demonized, the victim is isolated. Former friends slink away or distance themselves. Co-workers or employers  grow afraid and disown the victim or, often, fire him. People are afraid to support the victim let they too be demonized.
 
Now, virtually alone and isolated, publicly defamed and trashed, the victim can be safely prosecuted.
 
We see this evil pattern in the ongoing persecution of the satirical East End Toronto tabloid YOU WARD NEWS, It is proudly anti-ZioMarxist and most politically incorrect. It’s enemies have tried to shut if down by demanding that the Toronto Police thought police, “the hate squad”, charge it under Sec. 319 of the Criminal Code, Canada’s notorious “hate law”. Thus far, that hasn’t worked. In another move, advertisers were targetted with abuse and threats.Sleazy anti-racists striking by night have repeatedly smashed the windows of YOUR WARD NEWS and ruined its door locks. Leftist postal workers refused to deliver it but were compelled to by their employers, 
 
Champion Ottawa complainer Richard Warman then demanded that Canada Post cease delivering the newspaper as he disapproved of its contents — “racist, sexist” blah, blah, blah,
 
That didn’t work. So, off he went to the Canadian Human Rights Commission with a complaint against the Government of Canada and Canada Post for distributing YOUR WARD NEWS.
 
Then, in June, Public Services Minister Judy Foote arbitrarily cancelled the mailing rights of editor Dr. James Sears and publisher Leroy St. Germaine. Jackbooting English Common Law which does not inflict punishment until there has been a charge, followed by a trial, with evidence and argumentation, and then, and only then, if there is a finding of guilt. The minister asserted that she had reason to believe YOUR WARD NEWS was violating Sec. 319 (“the hate law”) and the law of criminal libel, although no charges have been laid and no conviction registered.
Part of the “isolate” tactic is to strip the victim of supporters. Should a friend or supporter prove recalcitrant, threats are now directed against him. That’s what is happening to one of the loyal advertisers in YOUR WARD NEWS. That infernal busybody Richard Warman is now seeking to damage one of the loyal advertisers professionally.

On his website, Warman reports: “Your Ward News update – There is a Toronto lawyer named David FAED who has been advertising for some time in the bigotry-filled tabloid called Your Ward News. Mr. Faed has chosen to continue advertising in this publication despite knowing of its contents given that I (and others apparently) have raised concerns with him directly.

The latest edition of Your Ward News includes material counselling the obstruction of justice by counselling male jurors to acquit men charged with sexual offences against women and girls without regard to the evidence before them.

I have expressed my concerns about a lawyer like Mr. Faed advertising alongside open bigotry to the Law Society of Upper Canada given my belief this constitutes unprofessional conduct and have asked that this latest information be added to the file.” (http://www.richardwarman.ca/)

Notice the admission that Warman has contacted advertisers seeking to get them to drop their ads and, thus, to inflict harm on YOUR WARD NEWS. As advertiser and lawyer Mr. David Faed has stuck with YOUR WARD NEWS, Warman now seeks to cause him professional harm with a complaint to the Law Society of Upper Canada, 
 
 
Could it really be that in constipated, Puritanical politically correct Canada advertising in a politically incorrect publication could actually constitute unprofessional conduct?
 
We’ll have to wait and see.

CAFE MEETING FOR “EVALION” SHUT DOWN BY TERRORIST VANDALS

CAFE MEETING FOR “EVALION” SHUT DOWN BY TERRORIST VANDALS
Not that “anti-racists” (anti-racism is a code word for anti-White) or Social Justice Warriors are any strangers to violence but they have become downright hysterical since the Trump Phenomenon.
 
The Alternative Forum and the Canadian Association for Free Expression had arranged for a meeting with “Evallion.” The meeting was to be hosted at the offices of YOUR WARD NEWS. “Evalion”: is a 19-year-old You Tube videographer. Active for the past eight months, she has accumulated over 2-million hits on her sassy, opinionated videos. She has taken shots at the so-called holocaust, the Third World immigration and other forbidden subjects.
 
In early October, Canada’s thought police (Canadian Border Services Agency branch)  held her for over eight hours and stole (uh, “detained”) her laptop, power cord, computer case and several personal diaries and notebooks. B’nai Brith, among Canada’s most fanatical thought control groups, is on her case and is demanding a police investigation and prosecution under Canada’s notorious “hate” law.
 
She has also been the c\victim of serious Internet stalking and harassment.] At the last minute, she was so pressured (she is still a teenager) that she cancelled her engagement. CAFE meetings  never cancel.
 
However, when folks showed up tonight, they discovered that the offices of YOUR WARD NEWS had been the object of terrorist vandalism. The locks on both front and rear doors had been vandalized. The manager of YOUR WARD NEWS was unable to gain entry. And, as usual, there was the retarded sloganeering and tagging defacing the front of the building. [YOUR WARD NEWS has had its windows smashed so often that they are permanently boarded over.]

Last week an unidentified  teenager was arrested in Ottawa for spray painting some nastiness on the window of the front door of a female rabbi and on a Negro church. A long parade of donkey-faced politicians rushed forward to denounce these acts. We won’t hold our breaths for any similar sympathy for the interference with CAFE’s right to hold a peaceful meeting.

An interesting clue to the possible identity of the perpetrators came from a colleague who arrived early, at 4:30. He took a snap of the anarchist grafitti. He noticed he was being watched.  A man in his 20s, thin with dirty blonde hair was taking pictures and tried to take pictures of our colleague. He was being signalled by an older man in his 60s. he wore a red jacket, was chubby and had salt and pepper hair. Our colleague ducked into a neighbourhood restaurant. The photographer followed. When our colleague quickly left, the photographer also followed. Our colleague spun around and confronted the photographer. “Who are you? Why are you trying to take my picture?” he demanded. he is 6’3″.

The frightened youth’s reply was: “I am just taking pictures. I want to be left alone.”

Year End Update from Persecuted Historian David Irving


Scotland, Monday, 21 November 2016

To: Larry Ernst
P. O. Box 633
Dayton, 22821

Dear Larry,

We are approaching Christmas and a date almost more important: December 6 is the tenth anniversary of the date when five wise Viennese judges sitting in the Austrian Court of Appeal ordered my immediate release from prison (see photo below): I had been ambushed in Vienna and held for over a year in solitary confinement for "Wiederbetätigung," a mysterious political offence created by Stalinist courts in 1945; I was accused of trying, with my famous biographies, to "reactivate" the German Nazi party. The decision rescued me, and I was able to get back to England and my little girl, and resume writing Real History.

The following day saw the unleashing of a Press campaign against the judges who ordered my release. Prof. Deborah Lipstadt, who a year earlier had told the press it was wrong to lock me up, announced to the US newspapers straightfaced that it was now totally wrong to release me. As you know, some people are hard to satisfy!

My daughters are now all grown up, and Lipstadt has written a movie, which is as truthful as only Hollywood movies can be, funded by millions of Hollywood dollars, attacking me. It has been going around since September. Its very first scene is a lie.

I am in Scotland now, and have three more books to write: theChurchill biography, vol.3 (which takes the story to Potsdam and Hiroshima); my own memoirs, which I first drafted when I was still in the thick of it; and I am currently putting final touches to Himmler's War, which is finished, bar the final polish: Part I is subtitled, 'Always be decent and brave and kind', a quote from a letter to his daughter, little Gudrun Himmler in 1930.

I think I told you that I've beaten Germany, where the permanent ban (imposed in November 1993) was lifted last year, after two Court hearings and a three-year battle by my brave lawyer - because such a ban violates a European law on freedom of movement which did not exist at the time. The Court even ordered the Bavarian Government to pay all the costs. The same freedoms do not hold in freedom-loving Canada, New Zealand, Australia - I can't even visit my daughter and her family living Down Under - and other countries where the traditional enemies of Real History have gained the upper hand.

The United States is changing. Back on October 18 my emails show I was telling people that in my judgment Donald Trump had his heart in the right place and was going to win: "I don't think Hillary will make it." Three weeks later all the pundits had egg on their faces. They all just quote each other: like conformist historians. The Internet is changing everything.

My books are not prohibited anywhere in the world, nor the YouTube videos of me speaking; but Hollywood and its lies hobble on. Join the fight! We print my latest books at high quality, which is costly, and I have only you folks as a back-up to fall back on. Since the 1990s, mainstream publishers have not dared print my books. So contribute what you can, if you can, by check, cash, or bank transfer. You'll get a personal letter of thanks from me if you do and, if and when I next speak near you, a personal shake of the hand. In my years it has shaken a lot of famous hands, I don't have to tell you!

Yours sincerely,
and with best wishes for Christmas,

“EVALION” RALLY POSTPONED DUE TO THREATS AGAINST HER PERSONAL SAFETY BY “PEDOPHILE” GROUPS

Unfortunately, due to threats from groups controlled and/or funded by ZioMarxist entities, Evalion’s rally at the Your Ward News office on November 22, 2016, will be postponed to a new date and new venue, announced only to a select group of people on a mailing list (the event time and location will not be made public).  The reason for the postponement and change of venue is to counter threats to Evalion’s personal safety.

014

According to Evalion, who is a strong anti-Pedophilia advocate, entities representing “Pedophiles”, a gentleman by the surname of “Picciolini” (who may or may not be part of this Pedophile group), and potential Pedophile operatives in “Antifa”, were planning on “ambushing” her at the event.  We regret any inconvenience caused by this postponement, but we trust that the community will support us in ensuring the safety of this young Nationalist videographer.

Christmas 2006 012

‘The Campaign Against Anti-Semitism’ plans to make its up its aggressive campaign at closing down all opposition to the Zionist Supremacy.  This is similar to what happens in France where wealthy Zionist ‘charities’ fund the legal persecution of anyone who shows the least sign of anti-zionism.
If anyone can find out the venue of this ‘recruitment drive’ do let us know and we will send someone along to monitor them and to ensure they don’t indulge in any hate speech against gentiles.
Remember this is the organisation that boasts about getting patriots sacked from their jobs and getting an 86 year old pensioner fined for using the word ‘Shylock’.

86-YEAR-OLD ANTISEMITE CONVICTED AND ORDERED TO PAY £640 AFTER CALLING JEWISH BUSINESSMEN “SHYLOCK”

haringey-civic-centre

86-year-old Herminio Martinez has been convicted for racially aggravated threatening behaviour after launching into an antisemitic tirade on 8th February following a city planning meeting at which Jewish businessmen were permitted to construct a block of flats.

Property developers Michael and Joseph Gerrard were leaving the city planning at Haringey Civic Centre when Mr Martinez, who had opposed the planning application, called Michael Gerrard “Shylock”, a reference to the Jewish moneylender in Shakespeare’s play The Merchant of Venice who famously demands a “pound of flesh” in settlement of a debt.

Mr Martinez denied the offence, but the magistrates convicted him on the basis of video footage of the aftermath of the incident filmed on a smartphone, handing him a 12-month conditional discharge and ordering him to pay £625 prosecution costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

We commend the victims for taking action to ensure that this racist was punished.

Regrettably such convictions are rare due to reluctance on the part of the Crown Prosecution Service to take action against antisemites. While 2015 saw the worst level of antisemitic hate crime on record, we only know of 12 cases of antisemitic hate crime that the Crown Prosecution Service prosecuted, out of a total of 15,442 hate crimes prosecuted that year.

For Our American Friends: Call Your Congressman to Oppose Latest Zionist Effort to Squelch Criticism Of Holocaust Story

For Our American Friends: Call Your Congressman to Oppose Latest Zionist Effort to Squelch Criticism Of Holocaust Story

This is a “sense of the Congress” resolution which would throw the moral authority of the U.S. government against any questioning of the so-called holocaust or criticism of Jews or Israel. This is an utter betrayal of freedom of speech and freedom of thought. If anything illustrates the power of the Jewish lobby in the U.S. (something the windy definition of anti-semitism includes as “anti-semitic”  accusing :” Jews [of] controlling the media, economy, government,

THANKS TO JOE RIZOLI, who made us aware of this (below), we can contact our Reps in Congress.  So all of you Americans on this list, please locate your rep, email and then call him.  This HR BILL is appalling for the reasons I mentioned below.  In this new awakening, you might say, from the Trump administration that is about to be installed, we need to take responsibility for the actions of our out-of-control reps, senators, etc. They need to know how we feel (one of our shortcomings from the past).  Diane King

HR 6208 – STOPPING CRITICISM OF HOLOCAUST OF EUROPE  (“Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.”)

 

Dear Congressman Gohmert:  I VEHEMENTLY OPPOSE THIS BILL:  I find this horrendous.  First of all, it’s none of our business how they conduct themselves in Europe other than the egregious human rights violations, being jailed for differing opinion.  If we’re not going to help those targeted for persecution and prosecution for these opinions, WE SHOULD STAY OUT OF IT.  Not our drama, not our problem. Secondly,  I vehemently oppose ANYTHING that suppresses and oppresses FREE SPEECH!  We should be championing not punishing investigation of history especially when mountain of evidence of the facts emerge.  I will be calling you about this. This proposed bill is an outrage on so many levels. SO I SUGGEST HANDS OFF. Diane King

2d Session

H. R. 6208

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

September 28, 2016

Mrs. Lowey (for herself, Mr. Smith of New Jersey, Mr. Engel, Ms. Ros-Lehtinen, Mr. Israel, Ms. Granger, Mr. Deutch, and Mr. Roskam) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs

Please be aware that the Judaica are trying to influence our legislatures to enact this bill and notice part of what it says:

(D)

“Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.”

This free speech opinion negating bill of nonsense will stop ALL criticism of the holocaust. Do you see what is happening here?  You need to follow the Judaics because they do this all the time through the back door while Americans are sleeping. What the hell does Europe have to do with America in the First place? The Judaica did this with our Constitution back in 1787. They used their influence to get rid of Loyalty Oaths and Religious Test.

 

(4)

Since 2010, the Department of State has adhered to the working definition of Anti-Semitism by the European Monitoring Center on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC). Some contemporary examples of anti-Semitism include the following:

(A)

Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews (often in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion).

(B)

Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such, or the power of Jews as a collective, especially, but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government, or other societal institutions.

(C)

Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, the State of Israel, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.

(D)

Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.

(E)

Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interest of their own countries.

Videographer Joe Rizoli writes:
I have a problem with this stand by these Lawmakers for the various reasons.

1. What is anti-semitism?

A very good question, because from where I stand it seems that antisemitism is not someone hating Jews but who the Jews have decided to hate for the multitude like  reasons that could be anything, including a philosophical disagreement or more recent it seems, a disagreement over a historical happening.

This resolution is no more that a one way street to placate one religious persuasion to stop all criticism, discussion or opinions that are not favorable to the Jews, period.

One wonders how far the ADL, the backers of resolutions such as this, would have gone if they had existed during the writing of the Declaration of Independence.

How so?

The document that gave us the freedom to exist as a free nation today would never have become a reality if the ADL had existed then because that document was full of criticisms, something your resolution is screaming for by the things it has decreed, criticisms and opinions that differ from the exercising reigning power, England. That founders document exposed as it did a proposition to end tyranny through rebellion and even violence and it complained vigorously about the way the King abused his power towards the colonies.

YOUR resolution does the same thing in limiting freedom of speech through stopping opinions, criticism or even God forbid, an intelligent discussion on the holocaust of the Jewish people or even criticism of Israel, because of its genocidal actions towards the Palestinians. That criticism strangely would be labeled “antisemitism”

Basically, what your saying is, if some nation attacked Israel for its genocidal actions and I applauded those actions I would be labeled an enemy of the Massachusetts State house. Totally absurd. Wake up people. Take the ADL blinders off.

The resolution as quoted by Senator Creem in the Haaratz article states the notion that “in Free Societies, education and remembering past tragedies like the holocaust play a critical role in defeating antisemitism”

That may be true, but Free societies don’t stop criticism of the ruling governmental bodies here OR overseas nationalities, in this case Israel, and it doesn’t stop inquiry into past history such as the holocaust or WW2 history.

If I disagree with the Jewish version of the holocaust I have the right as an American, as governed by free speech and the Bill of Rights, to have an opinion that may differ from established history. It allows revision that corrects wrong opinions that are based on falsehoods and rumor, it stands on facts and truth and you or nobody else has a right to label that as “antisemitism”.

If that is so then even this comment below would by your resolution standards would be antisemitism.

“most of the memoirs and reports of Holocaust survivors are full of preposterous verbosity, graphomanic exaggeration, dramatic  effects, overestimated self-inflation, dilettante philosophizing, would-be lyricism, unchecked rumors, bias, partisan attacks…”

–Samuel Gringauz, “Jewish Social Studies” (New York), January 1950,

Vol. 12, p. 65

Your resolution is NOT needed in America because the Jewish community is thriving wonderfully without the scare tactics of the ADL in promoting that the sky is falling.

Please be wary of the ADL since in times past they have been noted to give awards to notorious mafia figures, one, a Moe Dalitz, who was giving the “Torch of Liberty Award”

Not a good decision to promote love for the ADL and a reason not to put any faith in their opinions.

Your resolution condemning antisemitism unfortunately crosses the line of free speech.

Lastly, please consider as politicians and hopefully Statesmen to cherish these words

of a past Justice,  Robert Jackson.

“….that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein”

Your resolution crosses the line because as high officials it is not your job to force citizens to except this resolution on what ultimately “shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion”

Don’t let the ADL start this nation on a downfall to totalism and don’t let the Massachusetts State House take a stand for another nations “nationalism”, Israel.

Please don’t fall for thus ploy. We don’t need this resolution.

Lastly, please print this for your records and at least make some response about my disagreement with your stance on this well meaning but drastically misguided resolution recently brought to my attention. Please don’t give me a courtesy letter because this resolution, and again I repeat what is mentioned by Robert Jackson crosses the line thus saying:

“….that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein”

Thank you

Massachusetts lawmakers approve resolution condemning anti-SemitismThe impetus for the measure came from the ADL of New England, out of concern about the rising incidents of global anti-Semitism and its impact on Massachusetts.

By JTA | Mar. 10, 2015 | 2:45 PM

Massachusetts lawmakers in a joint legislative session approved a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and calling for expanded anti-bias and Holocaust education.

A similar resolution that decries anti-Semitism and all forms of faith-based violence is under consideration in New Jersey, where a bill is expected to pass that state’s senate March 16, followed by its state assembly, according to the New Jersey State Association of Jewish Federations.

The Massachusetts resolution was approved on Monday. It was sponsored by State Senator Cynthia Stone Creem, and Lori A. Ehrlich, both Jewish members of the state legislature, and is expected to be signed later this week by Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo and Senate President Stan Rosenberg. As a joint resolution, it does not require the signature of Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker.

The impetus for the Massachusetts measure came from the Anti Defamation League of New England, which initiated discussion with the two leading sponsors out of concern about the rising incidents of global anti-Semitic violence and the impact it is having in Massachusetts, according to Robert Trestan, regional director of ADL New England. He believes Massachusetts is the first state legislature to approve such a measure.

“Events in Europe have elevated the anxiety within the Jewish community,” Trestan said, referring to the murders at the kosher supermarket in Paris and the murder of a Jewish guard outside a Copenhagen synagogue. The regional ADL has seen a rise in the number of reported incidents of anti-Semitism beginning with last summer’s conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza and since the murders in Europe, he said.

There’s also a concern about security for Jewish institutions, Trestan said, noting that Jewish groups have been specifically targeted. Increasing education about anti-Semitism and bigotry and hate should be a priority for all schools, he said.

“This statewide resolution shines a light on a disturbing trend while sending a strong, unequivocal message that such behavior will not be tolerated in the Commonwealth,” said Ehrlich who represents a district north of Boston with many Jewish residents and institutions.

“In free societies, education and remembering past tragedies like the Holocaust play a critical role in defeating fanatical anti-Semitism,” said Creem, who represents Newton, a suburb of Boston with a substantial Jewish population.

A bill condemning anti-Semitism that calls on American and European leaders to take specific actions to confront it is currently before the U.S. Senate, sponsored by Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Mark Kirk (R-Il.).
