Kevin Wilshaw, the leader of Britain's 'National Front' has revealed himself to be a closeted gay man with Jewish heritage to BBC's Channel 4.
Mr Wilshaw admits that being a Nazi who is gay – but with a Jewish background – is a contradiction. “It’s a terribly selfish thing to say but it’s true, I saw people being abused, shouted at, spat at in the street – it’s not until it’s directed at you that you suddenly realise that what you’re doing is wrong.” “You have other members leading National Front who are overtly gay. And nobody could see the contradiction of it that you have an overtly gay person leading a homophobic organisation, makes no sense.”
Wilshaw has physically hurt people in the past.
He said he had hurt people, “but not unprovoked, in defence. In a by-election in Leeds I smashed a chair over someone’s head.” But he denied ever having approached minorities and assaulted them.
He was active in the National Front recently.
A white supremacist active as recently as the start of this year says today he is publicly renouncing 40 years of hate.
