The presence of Islamophobic hate pages on Facebook and other social media platforms has been noted by Loonwatch and others for quite some time; recall Garibaldi’s expose on SIOA, the mother of all Islamophobic hate pages. These incubators of hate are where the anti-Muslim/anti-Left messaging, including violence is nurtured and disseminated to a wide audience of like-minded individuals.
Police are now investigating a Nottingham based hate group calling itself Notts Casual Infidels that stated that the murder of MP Jo Cox was an indicator of them “taking it to the next level.”
Police have said they are investigating a far right campaign group’s social media post following the death of MP Jo Cox.
The Notts Casual Infidels group has since deleted its Facebook post, which carried a link to a Guardian article following the story after news broke of the 41-year-old mother’s death.
Mrs Cox was killed by gun shots and stab wounds.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are aware of social media posts commenting on the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox which appear to have been attributed to a group claiming to be from Nottinghamshire, and our enquiries with regard this social media activity are on-going.”
The post, which was later deleted due to criticism from anti-fascist campaign groups and Facebook users, said: “We knew it was only a matter of time before we take it to the next level. We have been mugged off for Far to (sic) long.”
Spokesman Jamie-Ray Upton told the Post the Facebook update “came across wrong”.
