Twitter fight between CiF Watch and a far right BNP-style extremist: (With a shout out to Ben White)

Recently, we were followed on Twitter by a Mr. Lee Barnes.

Who is Lee Barnes?

He’s the former Legal Director of the racist, extreme right British National Party, and currently a member of the BNP inspired ‘British Freedom Party,

Lee Barnes

Per Harry’s Place:

Barnes  is…utterly obsessed with supposed Zionist conspiracies, which he exposes with the help of information taken from anti-Semitic hate sites, Holocaust denial outfits, and other extremist websites including Socialist Worker.

Titles of his blog posts include:

June 7th: ‘Israel and the 911 cover up’.

June 8th: ‘911 is exposed as an inside job’.


[In a] July 2nd [blog post]: Barnes cites a Press TV article and claims:

“Now we know what the take over of the Greek nation means, its surrender to the power of global capitalism and the Zionists.  The Greek nation is now a nation of debtors and Zionist whores abasing themselves before the US and Israel.”

It certainly didn’t take long for Barnes to attempt to get our attention.

We heard from him shortly after we Tweeted the following about Iranian PressTV:

Barnes, evidently seeing our anti-PressTV Tweet as a chance to pounce, immediately came to the defense of the brave, crusading Iranian broadsheet.

Yes, I think the right wing extremist, Mr. Barnes, has ‘Comment is Free’ contributor Ben White just about right.

White certainly would never be accused of “abasing himself before the Zionists and their cabal of cronies, crooks and arse lickers”.

Lee Barnes, meet Ben White. Ben White, meet Lee Barnes. I’m sure the two of you have a lot to talk about!
