EDL supporter Darren Clifft jailed over Ku Klux Klan video

A racist who admitted posting a video online showing someone in a Ku Klux Klan costume hanging a life-size golliwog doll was this afternoon jailed for one year.

Christopher Philips, from Wolverhampton, who used a series of pseudonyms and even impersonated mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik had pleaded guilty to posting three videos online, which were filmed at a music concert and intended to stir up racial hatred. The court was previously told the event had been organised by an extreme right wing group in West Wales in March.

Philips – who was formerly known as EDL supporter – was arrested later that month following an investigation by the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit. The 23-year-old also faced a second charge of using words or behaviour intending to incite racial hatred, but it was left to lie on file after he pleaded not guilty.

During his sentencing today at Wolverhampton Crown Court it was revealed Philips had a Ku Klux Klan outfit in his room.

Judge John Warner told him: “Publication of this material which has particularly historical connotations would have been deeply offensive to many people.”

Det Insp Darren Powney, senior investigating officer for the CTU, said: “We understand how offensive and distressing this type of material can be and we worked with the Crown Prosecution Service to bring Philips before the courts at the earliest opportunity. We urge anyone with concerns about extremist behaviour of any kind to contact police on 101.”

  1. Yikes!

  2. Special kind of stupid jail?

  3. GOOD!!!
    Now maybe the stupid f*%k will realise Racism and Hate Mongering is insightment to hate and illegal!!!! >:(

  4. I don’t necessarily think putting non-violent people in jail is right

  5. Sadly, now he will REALLY learn what being a White supremacist is all about. White supremacy is BIG in prison, like their own Mafia and it goes from prison to prison like a mob family. He will either really get scared and get straight or find family and get worse.

  6. Boy you gotta love the Mensa material the EDL brings in. http://www.mensa.org/

  7. maybe this is more to your liking

  8. Once global Khilafah is established, these Kuffar will be properly dealt with.

    Just wait.

  9. disturbing!

  10. That is soo messed up on soo many levels…

  11. 1/9/14 — An American citizen was released from jail in the United Arab Emirates on Thursday after serving nine months for posting a parody video on YouTube, his family said.

    Shezanne Cassim, 29, was sentenced to a year in prison last month over a 20-minute “mockumentary” video which poked fun at young Emirati men who imitate U.S. hip hop culture.
