COURT HEARS APPEAL FOR MEN IMPRISONED FOR DISTRIBUTING HOFFMAN'S
"HOLOHOAX" SATIRE

http://revisionistreview.blogspot.com/2 ... d-for.html


In Britain, in Leeds Crown Court, on July 10, 2009, Simon Sheppard
received a sentence of 4 years and 10 months and Stephen Whittle two
years and four months. Mr. Sheppard's sentence comprised 12 months
concurrent on three counts relating to distribution of "Tales of the
Holohoax" a satirical comic book by Michael Hoffman.

On July 14 the Court of Appeal gave leave to appeal against conviction
on all the Internet counts, but refused leave to appeal with respect to
the hard copy counts. The full appeal before three British judges
commenced on November 26 2009 at the Law Courts, Strand, London, and run
through Nov. 27.

An appeal will also be made to the European Court of Human Rights over
the decision by the Leeds Appeal Court judge not to review the notorious
decision in Reg. v. Birdwood when Judge Pownall's decision that ‘the
truth is no defence' - was upheld.

Friends of freedom of the press can can write the imprisoned men as
follows:

Simon Sheppard, A8042AA, Wing B3-25, HMP Leeds, 2 Gloucester Terrace,
Stanningley Road, Leeds, LS12 2TJ, United Kingdom.

Stephen Whittle, A8041AA, Everthorpe Prison, Beck Road, Everthorpe,
Brough, East Yorkshire, HU15 1RB, United Kingdom.

MICHAEL HOFFMAN COMMENTS:
Several years ago I decided to withdraw "Tales of the Holohoax" from
circulation because it was being pirated without the inclusion of my
explanatory essay on satire, which had been published at the end of the
comic, and because the comic book itself had become a source of
misunderstanding concerning the nature of my scholarship.

Mr. Sheppard did not abide by my request to halt his illegal copying of
"Tales of the Holohoax." He even sent it to a British synagogue, which
was very foolish. Nevertheless, I have considerable sympathy for the
plight of these two free speech activists, and great respect for Mr.
Sheppard’s refusal to “repent.”

Meanwhile, Kurt Westergaard, the artist who drew the most inflammatory
of the anti-Muslim cartoons in Denmark is today a wealthy, free man.
According to the Huffington Post of April 8, 2009:

“Prints of the Danish cartoon depicting Islam's Prophet Mohammed as a
suicide bomber in 2005...will now be sold by the Denmark Free Press
Society for $250 each. One thousand copies are to be printed and sold,
with each having a designated number and signature by the artist, Kurt
Westergaard...The image won Westergaard international fame....he has
never apologized or expressed regret for the drawings...(or) for being a
‘free artist’...he enjoys the backing of free speech and free press
advocates around the globe in this regard. A notable example of one such
advocate...is NATO Secretary General and Danish Prime Minister Anders
Fogh Rasmussen, who defended the drawings in 2006”

Prison for those who distribute a satire of wildly exaggerated
"Holocaust" fairy tales, and $250,000, international fame, and accolades
from the media and the Secretary General of NATO to the author of
anti-Mohammed satire.
