Neo-Nazi who branded Jews ‘destructive and vile’ jailed for posting online hate A member of the now-banned neo-Nazi group National Action has been jailed for four years and three months for posting racist and antisemitic messages, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has confirmed.
Wayne Bell, 37, posted an image on a Russian social media site showing a man being hung by a rope with a Star of David on his forehead, the CPS said.
In another post he described Jewish people as “destructive” and “vile”.
Prosecutors said Bell was also behind hate-filled graffiti.
Bell was a prominent member of National Action before its was banned 18 months ago and he featured in two posters used in a recruitment campaign.
The spokesman said 13 videos were found on Bell’s mobile phone and featured an unseen man, believed to be Bell, directing others who were daubing antisemitic graffiti, including swastikas and references to the Holocaust.
Bell pleaded guilty at Leeds Crown Court to two counts of stirring up racial hatred and three counts of possession of items with intent to destroy or damage property.
