Man jailed for posting racist video clips on YouTube

man has been jailed for 15 months for uploading racist video clips on to YouTube.

Gareth Hemingway, 29, of Bognor Regis, earlier pleaded guilty to five offences under the Public Order Act at Leeds Crown Court.

The clips called for a “racial holy war” and were designed to provoke violence against ethnic minorities, particularly in Dewsbury.

When he was arrested, police found Nazi and racist memorabilia at his home.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said the material came to the attention of police when a journalist researching Dewsbury on the internet came across videos Hemingway, of Longford Road, had posted and reported them.

Racist imagery

The CPS said they included titles such as ‘red, white and blue through and through’ and ‘Dewsbury needs help’.

They also featured racist references and imagery including an assault on a black man by a white man.
