Far-right teen who branded Prince Harry 'race traitor' jailed for four years

A far-right teenager who reportedly branded Prince Harry a "race traitor" and suggested he should be shot after his marriage to Meghan Markle has been jailed in Britain for four years and three months.

Michal Szewczuk, 19, posted extremist material including an image of the prince with a gun to his head on a blood-spattered background, the UK Press Association (PA) news agency reported. Published months after Harry's wedding to Meghan, whose mother is African-American, the image also featured a swastika and the phrase: "See Ya Later Race Traitor." Szewczuk was sentenced at the Old Bailey in London Tuesday, after pleading guilty to two counts of encouraging terrorism and five accounts of possessing terrorist material, the UK's Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) unit confirmed in a statement.

Among the materials in Szewczuk's possession was the White Resistance Manual -- a white supremacist handbook -- and the al Qaeda Training Manual, PA said.

Szewczuk, who is of Polish descent but lives in Leeds, northern England, also wrote an "extremely violent and aggressively misogynistic" blog which attempted to justify the rape of women and children in the pursuit of an Aryan race, the court heard.

He was sentenced alongside Oskar Dunn-Koczorowski, 18, from West London, who received an 18-month detention and training order after admitting to two counts of encouraging terrorism, CTP confirmed.

Judge Rebecca Poulet, who presided over the case, described Szewczuk's images as "abhorrent as well as criminal by reason of their intention to encourage terrorist acts."

Naomi Parsons, the prosecutor in the case, added that the targets of their posts included non-white people, the Jewish population and anyone "perceived to be complicit in the perpetuation of multi-culturalism."

1. These guys likely wouldn't have been able to make a home in Britain, save for the EU.

2. Indeed. The irony to me is by their Aryan Nazi philosophy

Poles were considered subhuman. And now they come to a land that helped free their ancestors from the inhumanity to perpetrate the same acts of terror

Glad the Brits aren't messing around dealing with these morons, whether it included threats against the crown or not.

4. For sure! All that raping women and children stuff

for the Aryan race. Yeah, right. He and his friend are toxic losers who feel ugly inside, imo.

I haven't finished reading this article and, damn, I don't think even plastic surgery to look like Chads will help.

6. "Censorship in the United Kingdom has a history with various

stringent and lax laws in place at different times.

British citizens have a negative right to freedom of expression under the common law. In 1998, the United Kingdom incorporated the European Convention into its domestic law under the Human Rights Act. However, there is a broad sweep of exceptions including threatening or abusive words or behaviour intending or likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress or cause a breach of the peace (which has been used to prohibit racist speech targeted at individuals), sending another any article which is indecent or grossly offensive with an intent to cause distress or anxiety (which has been used to prohibit speech of a racist or anti-religious nature), incitement, incitement to racial hatred, incitement to religious hatred, incitement to terrorism including encouragement of terrorism and dissemination of terrorist publications, glorifying terrorism, collection or possession of a document or record containing information likely to be of use to a terrorist, treason including advocating for the abolition of the monarchy or compassing or imagining the death of the monarch, sedition, obscenity, indecency including corruption of public morals and outraging public decency,defamation, prior restraint, restrictions on court reporting including names of victims and evidence and prejudicing or interfering with court proceedings, prohibition of post-trial interviews with jurors, time, manner, and place restrictions, harassment, privileged communications, trade secrets, classified material, copyright, patents, military conduct, and limitations on commercial speech such as advertising...
