Brendon Lee O’Connell is the first person in Western Australia to be convicted under the state’s racial vilification laws.
A jury found him guilty last week of six offences.
O’Connell posted a video on YouTube showing him insulting a young Jewish man in 2009.
The video also showed O’Connell standing in front of the Perth Bell Tower telling Jews their days were numbered.
Members of Western Australia’s Jewish community were in court for the sentence and welcomed the jail term.
Steve Lieblich, who represents the Jewish community and is on the Australia-Israel and Jewish Affairs Council, says racial vilification must be stopped.
“This time it was the Jewish people that were the target, next time it could be Muslims, Asians or any other group,” he said.
“So we should be pleased that we’ve had this result and this signal has been sent to Mr O’Connell and his supporters.”
Watch out for those Judaic art peddlers in jail, Brendover. They’ll harvest your organs while you are busy guarding your backside.
Update: A genius comment from an antisemitic site (http://whitelawtowers.blogspot.com/2011/01/open-flood-gates-shit-storm-is-about-to.html):
I spoke with Brendon the other night and he is preparing himself for jail-time. He was shocked that the judge refused to allow him to present all his evidence and closed the trial just as Brendon was about to present details of the “Shulkan Aruch” to the jury. We can’t have Jewish hatred of Gentiles exposed in a court of a law, can we?
The guy can hardly spell, and we are supposed to believe he can read the Shulchan Aruch?!
Brendon now fears for his life and is expecting to meet with “an accident” in prison. He stressed that he is NOT suicidal.
I wouldn’t worry, Brendon. Your prison husband may be able to protect you.
Brendon also asked me to convey a message that those of us still at liberty focus our attention and research on exposing the activities of Israeli intelligence in Australia as he believes this to be the real reason behind his arrest, trial and likely imprisonment.
Because Israeli intelligence has nothing better to do than ensure some unemployed, semi-literate bum goes to jail.
I believe that Brendon will receive a prison sentence on Monday. I hope I’m wrong. I think that him calling the judge an old fool, accusing him of being corrupt, and trying to have him arrested for treason will count against him when Brendon’s sentence is passed.
No sh*t Sherlock.
