The No Platform Policy of Esther Angel

I received this Facebook message from
"Let's make this very clear, you have
libelled both Gilly and myself and repeatedly blogged and posted lies about us
with our names and photos. Neither of us, including Peter Kalve, have ever
worked or contributed to Hope Not Hate, SWP or UAF, so you have no leg to stand
on and your allegations are both wrong and completely unfair since you blocked
us and so have not given us the chance to defend ourselves against your

intention to make a police compliant of harassment against you and if that
doesn't deal with the issue in a satisfactory manner, then the next step will
be civil action.

This is her response to posts I have made
about her on this blog; which I've also posted on Facebook.
This woman, who agitates for Hope Not Hate,
has proved me right all along.
I went onto a Facebook page (“We Know HowYou Feel About Your So-Called Prophet”) and had various exchanges with people I
had never spoken to before. It soon followed that I was banned by Facebook. One
image was reported by a person on this page: Sophie Morgan. It was her image of
Margaret Thatcher with an axe in her head. I posted it to show what hypocrites
the Left were. Her image remained but I was banned.
I got back onto Facebook and had exchanges
with other Hope Not Haters on this page. The same happened again. I was banned
by Facebook. I guessed these people were responsible because I hadn’t had bad
words with anyone else on Facebook. (Esther Angel, Gary Hastings and Gilly
Levett-Carpenter.) This time they reported an innocent joke-image that was
posted by me about four months ago (only on my personal page).
So I blocked all three of them and wrote
posts about it on this blog. All along there was a systematic attempt to silence
all opposition by reporting those they disagreed with to Facebook for various
infringements. This is ironic, because one of my main arguments against these
people was about their hatred of free speech and also Hope Not Hate’s “no platform
policy”. And here they were implementing it by reporting me to Facebook; as
they had done to many others on the same page (as well as many other people on
Yet, as you can see above, in an incredible
screech of hypocrisy, Esther Angel complains about me blocking her. I blocked
her after these people had got be banned from Facebook at least three times.
That’s a case of blocking people who are trying to silence you. What on earth
could be wrong with that? In any case, it wasn’t even banning her, or them,
from a page. It was just a case of me blocking any exchanges with them. That
is, I was my applying my own No Platform Policy to a staunch defenders and
practitioners of it (even if not publicly). These examples of fighting fire
with fire have been met with threats of police action and hypocritical comments
about me being “unfair”. Can you believe that?
You see; restrictions of freedom and speech
and the (Leftist) No Platform Policy are only meant to work in one direction: towards
the entire Right – not just the “far right”. When they are fed their own medicine,
they cry and threaten police action – the very same police these people hate
and accuse of being “an arm of the capitalist state”. You know; the “racist
police force” that should ban the EDL outright as well as ban all other right-wing
Anyway. Her message is full of defects. I
could run rings around every statement in it. But I won’t state my arguments now
because that may give her forewarning of what it is I may say in my defence.
That could only work to her advantage.
Nonetheless, I will make one point; just
for starters. How on earth is someone who uses a fake name, ‘Esther Angel’,
going to take action against anyone?
The police will not act on people who have suffered “unfairness” under a fake
name. I know this because this sort of thing has happened before and the complainant
has always failed to successfully bring charges while using a false name.
Apart from that, everything else she states
can easily be disputed. In any case, I reckon it was just a threat anyway. How do I know that?
Because these extreme Leftists are always doing this. This is just another of
their many ways of denying people the freedom of speech. It’s also another way
of enforcing the No Platform Policy. The threat of criminal or police action is
yet another way to silence people.
