Jenna Delich Links to KKK Related Site

Harry's Place, a group blog on my blogroll that I read from time to time is currently unavailable. This is because it seems some person or people have complained to their ISP claiming libel or similar.

There is a Harry's place backup site named after the likely source of their internet access troubles, however it would seem worthwhile pointing out to Jenna Delich and the UCU (University and College Union) that using Messrs Sue, Grabbit & Runne to silence a blog is a counterproductive exercise. The offensive post is entitled UCU and the David Duke fan
and describes how a certain Jenna Delich wrote the following message on the activist UCU mailing list in order to support a boycott of Israeli academics:

In support to your link this may be a long but also an interesting


No comment necessary. The facts are speaking for themselves.


David Duke is, as HP point out, well known for being a former KKK leader and all around racist/anti-semite etc. etc. In fact precisely the sort of person that one might have expected to be excorciated by a liberal/progressive of the sort that Jenna Delich appears to be. However as the email above shows she thinks he's got good arguments and that she must knowingyö read his site because

[t]he article itself was originally posted on an extremist conspiracy nut website, but appears only on David Duke's website. It is therefore reasonable to infer that Jenna Delich reads and takes her information on world events from neo Nazis.

Whether it is JD herself or some of her activist buddies in the UCU that has complained is unclear. But it occurs to me that HP could potentially have a countersuit sinilar to the DMCA one I mentioned yesterday since having one's site summarily removed from the Internet for stating what seem to be indisputable (and undisputed) facts looks like something that causes damage, loss of reputation, loss of potential advertising revenue etc. for no vaid reason.
