The 21-year-old from Litherland is to appear in court over a message sent allegedly sent via Twitter
A Merseyside man has been charged over an anti-Semitic tweet to Liverpool MP Luciana Berger.
Garron Helm, 21, of Thomson Road, Litherland was charged with sending an offensive/indecent/obscene message.
It is alleged the tweet was sent to Labour MP Ms Berger, who represents the Wavertree constituency, on Friday, August 8.
A Merseyside police spokeswoman said Helm was bailed to appear before Liverpool Magistrates’ Court next Monday, October 20.
The Jewish News reported that it was the first time charges had been brought in the UK over an anti-Semitic tweet against a high-profile figure and possibly against any individual.
The case relates to an alleged tweet from an account called Aethelwulf.
The tweet allegedly carried hashtags for Labour, Liverpool and ‘Hitler was right’.

Berger’s neo-Nazi twitter troll being jailed is ‘important precedent’
October 23, 2014
Shadow Health Minister Luciana Berger.
A judge handed the Jewish community an important new weapon in the battle against online hate this week when a Nazi sympathiser was jailed for sending virulently anti- Semitic tweets to a Jewish MP.
Politicians and police chiefs hailed the decision for setting “an important precedent” after 21-year-old Garron Helm was sentenced to four weeks in jail for using Twitter to show Labour front-bencher Luciana Berger with a Holocaust-era ‘Jude’ star superimposed onto her forehead.
Helm (pictured) sent the tweet under the hashtag “Hitler was right” and called the MP a “communist Jewess”. It added: “You can always trust a Jew to show their true colours eventually.”
Liverpool Magistrates Court heard that Helm sent the tweet in a state of “anger and political frustration” in the early hours of 7 August. But District Judge Andrew Shaw was not convinced, saying Helm’s actions were calculated and “extremely abusive and upsetting”.
The sentencing sparked a fresh wave of vile online abuse targeting the shadow public health minister. However, the ruling, which is believed to be the first time someone has been jailed for anti-Semitic statements made on social media, was praised as a turning point in the fight against racists and bigots online.
“The case has established an important precedent,” said John Mann MP, chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group Against Anti-Semitism.
“It should serve as a warning that, either online or offline, anti-Semitic and racist hatred is simply unacceptable and will be tackled head-on.”
Berger, the Liverpool Wavertree MP and Shadow Public Health Minister who was praised for her role in bringing the prosecution, was described as “deeply shocked by the entire incident” after police found Nazi memorabilia, including a flag bearing the SS symbol at Helm’s home.
Reacting to the case, she said: “This sentence sends a clear message that hate crime is not tolerated in our country. I hope it serves as an encouragement to others to report hate crime whenever it rears its ugly head.” Communities Minister Stephen Williams agreed, saying: “This shows there is no place for purveyors of hate to hide and sends a message that we are serious about ensuring that those involved are arrested and prosecuted.”
Matthew Offord, MP for Hendon, said: “This sentence represents a new weapon in the fight against those who think anti-Semitic messaging will be tolerated. We need to take this weapon forward to tackle all online race-hate crime.”
A spokesman for the Association of Chief Police Officers said: “Hate crime is taken seriously by police and reports will be investigated thoroughly. The prosecution of offences on social media is subject to stringent guidelines.”
This is not the first time Berger has been involved in a court case regarding anti-Semitism against her. In 2013, a Merseyside music promoter was fined £120 after telling her he “hated” Jewish people.
Claire Lindley, Chief Prosecutor at the Mersey-Cheshire Crown Prosecution Service, said this week’s case crossed a line. “Freedom of speech must be upheld,” she said.
“But this was so grossly offensive that it crossed the threshold of criminality and was clearly targeted at Luciana Berger because of her religion.”
She added: “Some people think they can send whatever they like into cyberspace and won’t be caught. Well they are wrong and this prosecution proves it.”

Garron Helm is Free, National Action Reports
November 1, 2014
Though I do not have the details, National Action is reporting on their Twitter page that Hero Garron Helm has been freed from the ZOG cage he was locked in after calling a Jew a Jew on the internet.
Definitely not a whole four weeks served. Is this them backing down? I don’t think so. The precedent is still on the books, and sentences can be progressively increased easily.
Still, a victory worthy of a hail.
This does not mean that Operation: Filthy Jew Bitch should cease. On the contrary, they have shown weakness by releasing Helm early, which means now is the time to hit them all the harder. Keep going. Keep making new accounts when you’re deleted. The operation will not cease until Luciana Berger is deported to Israel, leaves voluntarily for Israel, or we are all murdered by Jews.
