UK: Youth Jailed for Owning Book

Ben John

His “offense” was possessing a book freely available on the Internet to anyone who wants it.

A FORMER BRITISH STUDENT who was given a suspended prison sentence and told to read classic literature after being convicted of the preposterous “terrorism offense” of owning a book has now been jailed.

Ben John, described by police as a “White supremacist with a neo-Nazi ideology,” was given a two-year suspended term at Leicester Crown Court last August.

The 22-year-old, from Lincoln, has now been jailed for two years after Lord Justice Holroyde quashed the original sentence at the Court of Appeal, finding it was unlawful.

Lord Justice Holroyde said: “We are satisfied that there must be a sentence of immediate imprisonment.”

John was convicted of “possessing a record likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism” after he was found with a copy of The Anarchist’s Cookbook – a book which contains instructions for making weapons and explosives, not unlike the numerous similar books and manuals promoted and sold by Jewish leftists and “antifa” for the last fifty years. The Anarchist’s Cookbook has long been digitized and freely available on the ’Net for anyone to download. One strongly suspects that the prosecutors and the “Lord Justice” possess copies themselves.

Police also found literary and cinematic works “praising Adolf Hitler” and “White supremacist songs” at his residence. (Perhaps one of the songs was the one promoted and endorsed by the government in the mid-20th century as part of the White Australia policy.)

John has been jailed after the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) referred his sentence to the Court of Appeal under what the court — doubtless under Jewish pressure — now calls “the unduly lenient sentencing scheme.”

The Court of Appeal was told the sentencing judge suspended John’s prison sentence after the ex-student promised to “stop his interest in far-right ideologies.” (Backing down like this, or apologizing for being a truth-teller, is always a bad idea. It will gain you nothing and stain your conscience forever.)

However, John had been “liking Nazi-themed content online just five days after promising the judge he had put it behind him”, Solicitor General Alex Chalk QC said. Chalk argued that, while the sentence was intended to allow for “potent control,” [what the Hell does that mean? — Ed.] this idea in the circumstances was “manifestly false.”

During his sentencing, John was invited by a judge to read famous works, including Pride and Prejudice and A Tale of Two Cities, as he was given a five-year “serious crime prevention order” and the suspended sentence with an extra year “on licence” — a British term essentially meaning probation; his life will be under management and continuous scrutiny of the court. Asking him to read 19th-century British literature is quite bizarre under the circumstances, since the social and racial views of not only the authors mentioned, but of almost every British subject of the time, would be considered “far right” today.

Richard Wormald QC, for John, argued The Anarchist’s Cookbook was a “counter-culture publication” that he had downloaded in his early teens but had not accessed since. He also said it was part of John’s library which also contained Marxist literature and books on gardening and baking.

After a two-and-a-half-hour hearing on Wednesday morning, three senior judges quashed his original sentence and replaced it with a sentence of two years in prison and a third year “on licence.”

Lord Justice Holroyde, sitting with Justice Lavender [I bet! — Ed.] and Sir Nigel Davis, said “certain offenses” require a “mandatory year on licence.”

John will now have to surrender himself to a police station, the judges ruled. Addressing him after giving the decision, Lord Justice Holroyde said: “You will have to serve at least two-thirds of the two-year period.”

I read things like this and my first thought is, “is there truly nothing we can do for our brother?” I dare say that the fact so many are so easily isolated and persecuted by the System is why we are relegated to the shadows. I am not saying we shouldn’t break him out and hide him, but making sure he keeps in contact with awake White Folk – preferably the National Alliance, I would think – and making sure what material aid can be supplied to ease his prison stay as much as possible is surely something we can do. Not only for this young man, but all such political prisoners who are jammed up for loving our race. I think there’s an opportunity there. And I think if… Read more »

Begin by finding out the young man’s location, then writing to him if you care to volunteer. His responses can and ought to be shared with NV, and perhaps that can be published as well.

Thanks for the nudge, Jim. I started my research on this last night. My two biggest hurdles seem to be:
1-Finding the correct specific prisoner and contact method
2-They will definitely read his mail and may prevent contact with guys like us

The second is probably the easiest if I carefully watch what I say, but eventually they will figure it out.

The first problem was looking to be the most difficult but I just read Br. Art’s message below so there may be folk at Creativity that can help find this kid.

The Creativity Alliance does prison ministries and has a special webpage for prisoners of the racial war where addresses are available to send aid and letters to our brothers behind bars. There are special payment sites where you can send money to prisoners and supposedly a little money goes along way in the prison system. You maybe able to use their format for your own prisoner support page. hate to think how many awakened whites we never hear about are locked away by this filthy jewish system.

I was once visited by the police at school for praising Hitler (I have been a National Socialist ever since I was first taught about it at primary school, even then I could see through some of the more absurd lies about it). I stood my ground, knowing that I’d broken no laws, and the officer left after she’d finished telling me off. I wonder what they’d make of me owning a copy of Mein Kampf or Der Giftpilz?

Learn the difference folks of these two words Man and Person in their courts of legalese. A man has standing in common law and the person does not. There is a reason why the word man is NOT in “laws” i have read in my 14+ yrs of reading. England is still a common law land, so is canada, AUS, and the usA. More and more are awakening to the fact there are already two parallel societies running right now. One is a man society and one a corporate person society entitled to the rules for the French on how to treat black slaves i.e. “black’s law”. To them you are a slave until you prove yourself not. Just look at the rule book the “supreme court” laid out and… Read more »

I’ve learned the difference, cas. What’s highly relevant to this education is how many men with guns and more importantly, the sum total of moral authority recognized universally you have to enforce these interpretations compared to how many the System has. The final adjudication finds for the side with the most of both. Currently, most don’t even know what you’re talking about and yet the power of the System and its institutions of education, propaganda dissemination, and raw power outweigh you and other individual holders of these views. Please, go to those System courts with your arguments and something on the line and come back to tell us how it went.

So what will be the end result of his incarceration? The young man will come out of prison more guarded in his actions but with a deep hatred of the System. Moreover, he will be a hardcore National-Socialist.

26 January, 2022 8:56 am

OF COURSE…he should be imprisoned, he read condemned literature, he thought criminal thoughts. Destroying such people is OUR DEMOCRACY, it´s our VALUES, it´s WHO WE ARE…goyim.
