Wesley P.P. Hall is known to us at Hoaxtead Research for his enthusiastic promotion of the Hampstead Satanic ritual abuse hoax, both on his own and under the guise of his self-styled “#OpDeatheaters” avatar.
Those in his home city of Manchester are familiar with Wesley as a “violent yob” with multiple criminal convictions including a vicious racially aggravated assault with a weapon in 2010, for which he received a two-year sentence. More recently, in 2015 Weaselly was evicted from a homeless shelter set up in Gary Neville’s Stock Exchange building, as his fellow campaigners complained that he was attempting to run the collective as his own personal fiefdom, and said he was “holding them back”. He’s also notorious for running various scams involving “collecting (money/clothing/computer equipment/etc.) for the homeless”, who somehow never seem to receive the products of his efforts. Basically just an all-round nice fellow, the type you’d like to introduce to your mates.
Most recently, we notice that Weaselly has been actively promoting an old, ugly, long-disproven anti-Semitic trope: the Jewish blood libel.
The blood libel, which arose in the Middle Ages, alleges that Jews murder Christian (or sometimes Muslim) babies and use their blood to bake matzoh, the “bread of affliction” which Jews eat during Passover. This false allegation has been used for centuries to justify attacks, pogroms, and genocide against Jews in various parts of Europe.
We should not need to point out that the blood libel runs completely counter to Jewish theology, which prohibits murder. The Torah also prohibits the consumption of animal blood: kosher meats are drained of their blood before they can be eaten. Jewish scholars interpret the relevant passages to include humans in that proscription.
So we must admit we were both taken aback and revolted when we happened upon the following post from Weaselly:
No, Weaselly, the blood libel is far from “a fact”, and it is certainly not backed up by “historical evidence”.
In fact, we challenge Weaselly to produce a single piece of “historical evidence” to support this outrageously racist allegation. The fact that a story is repeated in “folk songs and poetry” does not make it true; it simply means that the lie was spread via the spoken or sung word. The English folk tradition contains references to giants, fairies, witches, and monsters, but it would be a bit of a stretch for anyone (besides Weaselly and his motley crew) to assume that this meant such creatures existed historically.
One of Weaselly’s followers did attempt a rebuttal of his anti-Semitic nonsense…but not before the ever-gullible Jake Clarke weighed in with his thanks:
Note that Weaselly’s first response is to demand the name of the dissenter’s lecturer. Given his long history of violence and anti-social behaviour we found this quite alarming, and we will be notifying the lecturer in question.
In typical Weaselly style, he manages to conflate two equally false myths: the Jewish blood libel and “Satanic ritual abuse”. Does he really believe that they are one and the same, or that either of them is even remotely true? Who cares, as long as he gets lots of “likes” on Facebook?
This exchange points to a very disturbing and growing trend amongst the troofers—the use of old, dangerous anti-Semitic slurs as an excuse to promote violence and hatred in the fearful and gullible. Are we surprised to see this Hampstead mobster allying himself with this set of pernicious lies? Sadly, we are not.
And we predict that it won’t be long before some of Weaselly’s less intellectually gifted Hoaxtead mob friends start sharing this filth and proclaiming that it’s all true, they read it on the internet. Kristie Sue, over to you.
