Nationalist clothing website yanked on behalf of Talmudic law
A WEBSITE selling anti-Semitic and Nazi clothing has been taken offline, following a Seven Network investigation that outed its 26-year-old Bathurst owner.
The site, Noble Front
, was selling T-shirts depicting swastikas and a ladies fashion range displaying photos of a smiling Hitler before a “server problem” closed the site last week.
When confronted by Seven Network News, David Pollard
, the owner of the website, said he did not think he was doing anything wrong.
“We’re just selling it, we’re not forcing it onto anyone,” he said. Asked if spreading race-hate was a lucrative business, he responded by saying: “Will be.”
Pollard, whose website appears to be vilifying people based on their race or religion, said he planned to keep the website open “until it gets shut down”.
However, last week users were unable to see or buy its products.
NSW Jewish Board of Deputies CEO Vic Alhadeff said the website promoted bigotry and racial hatred, and has no place in our society.
“The internet has become the primary source of information for young people, which makes the fact that the website specifically targets this demographic particularly dangerous and insidious,” Alhadeff said.
Executive officer of the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission, Manny Waks, said the items are “despicable” and “highly insensitive”.
“We would urge those who are involved in this racist endeavour to desist from doing so immediately and educate themselves on the issue of racism,” he said.
