Press TV Screens a Neo Nazi

This is a cross post by Potkin

On the Islamic Republic TV channels, including Press TV, Peter Rushton is introduced to the viewers as a Historian and a Political Analyst. Yeah right!

Press TV’s Marziyeh Hashemi talking to the White Supremacist, Peter Rushton on Press TV. And it is not a one off occurrence.

So, who exactly is this weirdo?

He claims to have a degree from Oxford university, but people I have spoken to, who were with him at Oxford, say he was a university drop out, who was kicked out and never finished his degree. While at Oxford, he did not show any Nazi tendencies, and was more into conspiracy theories, until he joined the BNP in the 90s. In November 2000, he travelled to Spain to celebrate the birth of the Fascist dictator, General Franco. Rushton remained a die hard member of the BNP until 2002 until he was expelled from the party for various accusations made against him, including that he was gay.

Here he is as the guest speaker of Oldham BNP, talking about how Asian gangs have been attacking the white people:

After getting kicked out of BNP, Rushton joined a more extreme Nazi group, called the White Nationalist Party.

Differences of personality caused a split in this party, a  usual trait in extremist groups, and Rushton joined the British People’s Party. Another White Supremacy group which use the Celtic cross instead of a Swastika in their meetings:

This regular guest on Press TV and other IRI state TVs, is now in the England First Party and is the associate editor of its magazine, Heritage and Destiny.

He is also the webmaster for the website of the notorious holocaust denier, (Lady) Michele Renouf, who is also another regular star of the Islamic Republic media

Watch Michele Renouf and Rushton with the Supreme Leader’s special representative in London, Mohamad Saeed Bahmanpour on Islamic Republic’s state TV.

Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), refers to Peter Rushton, the Nazi White Supremacist, as a “Peace Activist”!

So, Press TV continues to gravitate all kinds of weirdos like Lauren Booth and Galloway as well as White Supremacists like Peter Rushton and broadcast all kinds of inflammatory programs and OFCOM is ok with it.

Amazing how at ‘times of austerity’, some useful services are cut back and useless bodies continue to survive.

habibi adds: here is another sick report from RePress TV. It is an extended rant by American loon Gordon Duff. Did you know that Rupert Murdoch is an Israeli Jew and he was involved in 9/11?

We’ve had three presidents of the United States who have essentially been appointed to office and controlled entirely by Rupert Murdoch. And the things that happened during their administrations, the kinds of things that happen, economic meltdown in the US, the EU has melted down, 9/11, two insane wars – Murdoch has been very significant in the planning and operations of all of those things.

For Duff, even WikiLeaks is an Israeli plot.

None of this will give RePress TV presenter George Galloway any pause, of course. Nor will there be any second thoughts at “Socialist Unity”, the blog run by his lapdogs. It is publishing Galloway’s attacks on Murdoch for, ahem, impropriety in the media.

Edmund Standing adds:

Rushton’s far-right enemies allege that he is or was a Trotskyite. Make your own mind up.
