FAKE NEWS: Antifa Publish Hitler Tattoo Picture Allegedly From Freedom Rally, Was Actually Taken Three Years Ago At EDL Rally
Leicester Unite Against Fascism (A.K.A. Antifa) have been caught out posting on Facebook a fake picture from Sunday’s March For Freedom, which perpetrated to show a protester with a tattoo of Hitler on his torso.
However, Kipper Central has learned that the picture posted was in fact a picture taken at an EDL rally in Manchester, back in 2015 and was not associated with Sunday’s rally in any way.
The man in their picture is Luke Pippin, a former Deputy Organiser of the National Front, who was handed a suspended prison sentence last year and is no longer taking part in National Front activities after he was expelled from the party.
He was also rumoured to have been caught sleeping with the partner of another prominent far-right activist Tommy ‘the gun’ Law.
For these reasons, it is very unlikely that Pippin was anywhere near the March For Freedom on Sunday, but that didn’t stop Antifa from publishing pictures claiming to be of him at the rally.
Also pointed out on social media is that one person in the background of the picture is wearing a raincoat, despite last week’s protest in London taking place on one of the hottest days of the year with many protesters even taking off their tops in the heat. Almost as though it was taken on a different day…
Antifa also appear to have cropped the picture to hide the copyright watermark from the photographer, meaning their publishing of the picture could in itself be illegal.
The photographer who took the photo at an EDL rally in 2015, Joel Goodman, has been asked for comment by Kipper Central.
