Richie Allen: Purveyor of Holocaust denial

1/ Self-styled "saviour of alternative media" Richie Allen is angry about being accused of promoting Holocaust denial and has challenged critics to prove he's ever denied the World War II genocide against Jews in Europe.
2/ But Allen's protests of innocence are disingenuous because his method is not to say these things himself but, rather, to invite antisemitic conspiracy theorists onto his show, give them a platform to hold forth without serious challenge and then praise their supposed insights.
3/ The Richie Allen Show has hosted a number of antisemites and Holocaust deniers, including Alison Chabloz, Nick Kollerstrom, Mark Collett, Gilad Atzmon and David Icke.
4/ Alison Chabloz has appeared on the show several times. Chabloz, who describes herself as "a talented musician with outspoken views on many subjects, including the Holocaust and freedom of speech", was convicted for sending grossly offensive communications in May 2018.
5/ Chabloz is a notorious far-right activist who writes, performs and publishes songs that, as a February 2019 Crown Court appeal judgment put it, "weave Holocaust denial and hateful attacks on Jewish people generally, by reference to well-known antisemitic tropes".
6/ But when she appeared on The Richie Allen Show, her worshipful host described Chabloz's songs as "satirical, they're funny, they're very good" and declared there was "nothing hateful" about her material.
7/ "I certainly don't believe for a minute there's anything racist about you", he told her, as Chabloz went on to repeatedly claim there was no proof 6m Jews had been killed by the Nazis or that there were any gas chambers, a statement Allen described as "technically correct".
8/ Alison Chabloz labelled Holocaust remembrance as a "money-making industry" and claimed black people had more rights than "us". But Allen challenged none of that, just saying again and again how great he thought she was.
9/ The appeal judges were in no doubt about the nature of Chabloz's views, describing her as "manifestly antisemitic, and utterly obsessed with what she perceives to be the wrongdoing of Jews and their disproportionate influence in politics, the media and banking in particular."
10/ It's not as if Alison Chabloz was evasive about any of that in her appearances on Allen's show. She also spoke about performing her songs at "nationalist" meetings across the country. Who describes themselves as nationalist in England these days? Neo-Nazi groups, that's who.
11/ And, sure enough, Chabloz was the National Front's guest of honour at their "remembrance" rally in November 2018. Okay, that was after her appearances on the @RichieAllenShow, but her vile politics were already quite obvious in all that she said and wrote.
