The evil views of a man who has appeared in court for calling for Muslims to be gassed and put on bonfires are still being watched on video-sharing website YouTube.

The twisted videos posted by white supremacist Jonathan Damian Jennings are still being hosted by the Google-owned website.

In long monologues lasting up to 40 minutes each, the 34-year-old from Brynamman, Carmarthenshire, pours out his bitter, murderous world view.

One strange and chilling video entitled ‘A Royal message from Meghan Markle’ shows a black golliwog doll with Jennings hoarsely saying ‘Harry, darling, I’ve become a trans’.

In others, he fulminates against “feral, inbred, raping” Muslims, lauds Finsbury Park mosque killer Darren Osborne and attacks gay people.

Jennings was jailed for 16 months in Swansea Crown Court last week over messages he posted on the American-based social networking site GAB, which styles itself as a “free speech” platform.

Those posts warned Jews that they would “get the same treatment as Muslims” and called for prominent EU remain campaigner Gina Miller to be hunted down and killed, as well as boasting he would first in line to ‘Jo Cox’ Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

But although his Twitter, @BZNTweets, has been taken down, his YouTube channel is still up.

The channel, called MrJDJennings, has been online since July 3, 2009.

It has had 187,366 views in that time, with 423 subscribers. The last video was uploaded five months ago.

Online still there are a few dozen videos featuring Jennings’ ramblings, including a few recordings of his ‘White Genocide Podcast, with one episode called ‘Jo Coxsucker’ with a picture of a noose.

Jennings refers to himself in t videos as ‘BLAZINOAH, Fuhrer of the troll Reich’.

In one video, called ‘Truth is Haram’, he refers to a storyline in Coronation Street where teenager Bethany Platt is raped by a member of a sex ring.

Jennings says in the video: “Why is the leader of the Bethany Platt character rape gang a white man, when in real life it would be a Muslim Pakistani?

“Coronation Street on some level is meant to be a reflection of real life.”

In another podcast, called ‘Darren Osborne Did Nothing Wrong’, Jennings refers to Osborne , who as found guilty of murder and attempted murder after deliberately mowed down people outside two mosques in north London in June last year, as the ‘Saint of Finsbury Park’.

He says it in attacks Muslims and says: “This will coming to a town near you soon. It most probably already has. Get back to the desert, you raping, inbred b******* and climb back on your camels.

“Islam’s ideology doesn’t belong here.”

He also refers to gay people in the UK as the ‘Geystapo’.

Jennings said in the video: “I was on my travels last week when something caught my eye that initially shocked me, and on second site, disturbed me. It was the sight of an LGBT rainbow flag fling outside a police station.

“I had to do a double take when I first saw, I couldn’t believe it. It was the equivalent of seeing a Nazi swastika flag flying outside a mosque or the ISIS flag flying outside Buckingham Palace.

“Homosexuality is wrong. It causes damage not only to those who partake in it, but society as a whole.”

The 34-year-old pleaded guilty to 10 counts of publishing threatening written material to stir up religious hatred, sending an electronic communication conveying a threatening message, and sending an electronic communication of an offensive nature when he appeared at Swansea Crown Court via videolink from prison on July 20.

A man who posted anti-Muslim messages on social media and made a threat to kill Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been jailed for 16 months.

Jonathan Jennings used platforms such as YouTube and GAB – billed as the “free speech” social network – to make Islamophobic statements inciting religious hatred.

Prosecutors revealed the 34-year-old man from Carmarthenshire had written posts calling for all Muslims to be gassed and to be forcibly sterilised. He claimed those who tried to convert others to Islam should be sentenced to death.

He repeatedly called for the murder of Muslims and supported “bomb a mosque day” suggested by another extremist, Nigel Pelham, who was jailed last year.

Sentenced at Swansea Crown Court on Thursday, Jennings pled guilty to four offences of inciting racial hatred and another six offences related to the sending of material with the intention of causing distress and anxiety.

The Crown Prosecution Service today said his jail sentence “reflects the seriousness of his crimes.”

Between March and August last year, Jennings also posted a series of threatening messages about left-leaning public figures and one about the Jewish community, alongside his diatribes about British Muslims.

In March 2017 he called Gina Miller – the prominent lawyer who led a legal challenge against Brexit – a traitor and called for her to be executed.

A few months later he said if Jeremy Corbyn became prime minister he would be first in line to “Jo Cox him” – a reference to the murder of the Labour MP by a right-wing extremist back in June 2016.

Another message stated that Hitler was born a 100 years too soon. He went on to threaten the Jewish community, saying if they did not behave themselves they would share the same fate as Muslims.

Deb Walsh from the CPS said: “Jonathan Jennings’ hatred of Muslims led him to post online messages stirring up animosity towards a whole community.

“He did not limit himself to expressing his views but called on others to indiscriminately kill Muslims and bomb mosques. Jennings also targeted the Jewish community and called for public figures whose views he did not like to be executed.

“The prison sentence reflects the seriousness of his crimes.”

Detective Superintendent Jim Hall of the Wales Extremism and Counter Terrorism Unit said: “We are committed to tackling all forms of extremism which has the potential to threaten public safety and security.

“Such was the strength of evidence of Jennings’ activities that he entered guilty pleas to all of the offences.

“There have been a number of successful prosecutions over recent years and this is testament to the work of police teams up and down the country.”

DS Jim Hall hailed the help of the public in identifying incitement of racial hatred and other forms of extremism.

“Nobody is better placed to detect something that is out of place in their communities than the people living in them,” he said. “To effectively combat the terrorism threat the police, businesses, government and the general public need to work together.”

“Anyone who sees or hears something that could be terrorist-related should act on their instincts and call the police in confidence on 0800 789 321.”

A man has admitted posting a series of messages online calling for Muslims to be gassed and put on bonfires and boasting he would first in line to ‘Jo Cox’ Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Jonathan Damian Jennings also warned Jews that they would “get the same treatment as Muslims” if they did not behave and called for prominent EU remain campaigner Gina Miller to be hunted down and killed.

Jennings, from Brynamman, posted the messages on the American-based social networking site GAB, which styles itself as a “free speech” platform.

The 34-year-old pleaded guilty to 10 counts of publishing threatening written material to stir up religious hatred, sending an electronic communication conveying a threatening message, and sending an electronic communication of an offensive nature when he appeared at Swansea Crown Court via videolink from prison.

A plea hearing earlier this month had to be adjourned when the defendant took his clothes off, lay on the floor of his cell, and refused to enter the dock.

Catherine Richards, prosecuting, said during a series of postings on the GAB site Jennings wrote that it would be “a good idea” if there was a ‘burn a mosque’ day, that Muslims should placed on top of bonfires, gassed, or killed on sight, and that Hitler had been born 100 years too early.

Jennings also called for Muslims to be “forcibly sterilised and banned from preaching their evil creed” until they could be physically removed from the country.

The court heard he also boasted that he would be first in line to ‘Jo Cox’ Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn should he ever become Prime Minister – a reference to the Labour MP who was murdered by a far-right extremist in her Yorkshire constituency in 2016.

Jennings, of Heol y Gelynen, Brynamman, also called for EU remain campaigner Gina Miller to be hunted down and killed and in another message warned Jews that if they did not behave they would “get the same treatment as Muslims.”

David Singh, for Jennings, said a psychological report into the defendant “raised a number of concerns.”

Judge Keith Thomas said he had read the report and noted that the psychologist who wrote it had not diagnosed any particular mental disorder.

Sentencing was adjourned to August 8 and Jennings was further remanded in custody until that date.
