Steven Ballard, 27, of Grimsby, admitted sending an offensive or menacing message on May 23 on the Grimsby division EDL fan page on Facebook .
It read: “Burn the mosque down the end of Legsby Avenue. That will tell the clowns in charge in this country that we ain’t taking this s*** and it will start a nationwide action going. “Grimsby will be on the map big time then.”
Ballard was given a 12-week suspended prison sentence, a six-month supervision order and must pay £85 costs and a Government-imposed £80 victims’ surcharge.
