Peter Reynolds Watch have been forwarded an email exchange between Peter Reynolds and a student from Tresham College of Further and Higher Education in Corby asking about his anti-Semitic rants.
In this email exchange, the student emails Mr Reynolds to inform him it has been proposed to invite him to participate in a lecture at the local college regarding his stance on cannabis, since he is a candidate in the Corby by-election.
The student has seen screenshots of Reynolds’ anti-Semitic blog posts, where he talks about “evil Jews” and his “disturbing views on immigration and homosexuality”. He states his Student Union prides itself on tolerance and diversity, Reynolds is asked to clarify what he meant and if he still stands by those words.
The email was dated 20th September, a few days after I had exposed on this web site how Reynolds had been lying that the anti-Semitic screenshots of his blog were forgeries. We provided proof from The Way Back Machine they were indeed genuine. Would Reynolds finally come clean and fess up …. Er no, same old denials claiming they are forgeries and he’s been subject to a hate campaign, blah blah!
The student thanks Reynolds for his prompt response and tries to get further clarification. He informs him he is of Jewish descent on his mother’s side. In particular he tells Reynolds he is concerned about the phrase “I curse the evil Jews”. He asks him point blank, did he write those words and if so, what exactly did he mean by them and does he still stand behind those words.
Reynolds is in a sticky situation now. Is it time for him to finally come clean and tell the truth? Will he be clear? No, he simply gives a short answer, again stating he did not write those words and that he made his position perfectly clear in his last email, refusing to give any further comment.
Our student friend does not give up; he confronts Reynolds directly, asking him how come a snapshot from 2009 at archive.org indicates in fact he did write those words? Reynolds is asked directly: “Now either you are lying, or archive.org is lying or has been hacked? Which is it?”
It must be high time for Reynolds to finally admit the “evil Jews” comments are genuine and he did indeed pen them. Surely he cannot wriggle his way out of this one. Reynolds cannot seriously with a straight face expect anybody to believe the Way Back Machine was hacked. He’s banged to rights is he not! There’s no way he can respond to this other than to finally admit the screenshots of his blog are genuine … I’m afraid not, Reynolds has one final trick up his sleeve. Can you guess what that is?
Hey you’re good, that’s right, he threatened to call the police on the student. Reynolds’ answer to being confronted with irrefutable proof that the screenshots of his blog entries where he rants about “evil Jews” are not a forgeries and he has been lying, is to once again get on the Bat Phone to Commissioner Gordon at Dorset Constabulary.
Reynolds writes: “If you persist then I am very ready to add your name to the list of individuals about whom I have made complaints to the police concerning forgery, offences under the Computer Misuse Act 1990, malicious communication and harassment.”
WTF! Confronting the leader of a registered political party who is standing in a by-election to be an MP with proof he has been lying, his response, to threaten to report you to the police. If ever there was proof Reynolds is diagnosably mad, this must be it. Dorset police must be sick of him, will it be handcuffs for wasting police time or will he be handed over to the men in white coats? We have the Mental Health Act for a reason.
What does the CLEAR membership think of their dear leader and his antics? Sadly the CLEAR Exec seems to approve.
