24 year old National & Social activist, Darren Clift, recently made headlines for uploading a video to YouTube which saw him pose with a ‘Golliwog’ whilst dressed proudly in the uniform of a Klu Klux Klansman. For this simple act of honourable expression, Clift was imprisoned for a year and strict anti-free speech sanctions were enforced upon him. Darren now faces further persecution and we wanted to give him a chance to have his say on record in a fair and non-bias way.
Joshua Bonehill interviews Mr. Clift:
:INTRODUCTION: Darren came to me recently with a story of political persecution and Anti-White abuse that needs to be highlighted, for this young man is facing oppression at the hands of the state and seemingly this is a battle he has faced alone to date. We intend to launch a viral campaign in the coming weeks pending the outcome of Darren’s court appearances but it is important to note that Darren has faced much of this struggle alone, now we as a community must rally behind him and issue support where possible.
Darren, thank you for granting me this interview. I’d like to start by asking you about how you’re holding up, this week you are due to appear in court for the non-crime we will talk about later but how are you feeling at present?
I’ve not been too bad thanks, I have an eventful life so theres been plenty of things happening to keep me busy. I feel sometimes as if Im treading on eggshells when I talk to people about my beliefs, which is unnerving.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, for those that are not aware of your constant legal battles, who is Darren Clift?
I was born as Darren Christopher Clifft in Wolverhampton, although after I became a political activist I changed my name to Christopher Darren Philips a couple of years ago for work-related purposes and to avoid detection by the Zionist “thought police”. Unfortunately this didnt quite work out the way I’d planned and I lost my job at a school in Birmingham because of my “far-right” views. I have been involved in many organised protests for white nationalism, including joining the NF on their demos, along with Infidels of Britain and other racially aware splinter groups. I was later illegally imprisoned for posting a video online and since then I haven’t legally been able to engage in any more activism.
Lets talk about what it is you’ve been arrested for, can you explain to us about what happened and why it is you’ll be appearing before the court next week?
I have been charged with a breach of CRASBO, although I wasn’t aware I had breached it at the time. I had supposedly posted an offensive word on facebook, even though this word is used frequently by the black community.
You’ve been placed on a CRASBO indefinitely, can you tell us what a CRASBO is and how this limits your both freedom of speech and expression?
The CRASBO (Criminal Anti-Social Behaviour Order) was issued to me when I was jailed for my last offense. It states that I cannot organise, control or attend any “extremist” demonstrations of a racial, religious or homophobic nature. I also cannot distribute material in leaflets or sticker form of anything of this nature, nor can I do any of this online in comment, pictures or videos. So in other words, I am completely banned from any form of expression that promotes traditional values which my ancestors lived by and believed in. I am also banned from contacting 3 of my friends who live locally which are named on the CRASBO. If I am found guilty of a breach, I could spend up to 5 years in prison.
Are you planning to fight the ruling of this CRASBO and if so, how will you go about it?
Yes I definately need to fight the ruling of this CRASBO if I don’t want to live my life in constant fear of never knowing when the counter-terrorist squad will come knocking at my door. I plan to do this through the EU courts on the grounds of Human Rights. If this fails then my only other hope is to wait a couple of years to be reassessed and see if they reduce some of the restrictions.
What do you feel the likely outcome of your court appearances will be, are you looking at a prison sentence?
I believe I will probably go to prison for a few weeks at most. I’ve checked the guidelines and they say that I should be given a community order or fine. But the racially-aggravating nature of the breach may give the Judge reason to give me a sentence outside the sentencing range stated in the guidelines.
Darren with his comrades
Do you feel that you are being persecuted simply because you are White, for instance if you were a negro and you made an anti-white comment, do you think you would have been treated differently?
Absolutely, I have seen black people in Wolverhampton act in a racially prejudiced manner towards white people and everybody just ignores it. The Judge who sentenced me last time gave a black man only 3 years for killing a white police officer! So it just proves where his loyalties lie.
You were imprisoned last year, for a year, simply because you uploaded a video onto YouTube that contained politically disagreeable material to the state, do you regret uploading this video?
I regret it only because I can no longer be politically involved in anything. Thats my only reason I regret doing so. Other than that I’m not sorry in the slightest. I should have the right to offend in my own country. People offend me all the time with their pro-multicultural views, and their hatred of their ancestors apparent ‘bigotry’. Things I see on TV offend me but I can’t do anything about it because there are double standards in this country.
I understand you are limited as to what you can express publicly because of your CRASBO, but do you still remain ideologically driven and are you planning to return to White activism when your battle is over?
Absolutely. I have never felt so strongly about anything in my life. Political and Religious systems change all the time, but once my race has gone, it is gone forever. Our descendants are counting on us!
Do you feel that the defence appointed to you at your last court appearance stitched you up in the sense that they attempted to brand you a “loner” and “Autist”, do you feel that this was done to discredit you in the newspapers and is there any truth behind these accusations?
Similar labels of ‘Autistic’ have been given to others such as President Putin and Anders Breivik, due to the fact they have been less affected by Marxist brainwashing than most of the sheeple. It’s true that the psychologist identified that I have some Autistic traits such as being “fixated on Nationalism”, but these are very mild traits and my IQ was found to be above average for a white English man. They didn’t mention that in the report. Instead they made me out to be a socially impaired retard who couldn’t make friends. What I actually told them was that I had lost most of my friends due to being open about my views, and they were too spineless to be associated with me. My defence barrister was absolutely useless. M.H. Solicitors were dreadful and failed to mention any of the finer points of my defense. I would’ve done a better job if I’d represented myself!
You wrote an ideological manifesto that was confiscated by the police, have you been given this back yet and was there anything else taken by the police in their initial raid last year?
I haven’t been given it back yet, they have kept it for future reference. Most things have been returned but have since been confiscated again. Some things, such as the pictures of my father who is now deceased, were never returned.
What was prison like for you during your time inside?
They kept me at H.M.P Hewell which was one of the worst prisons in the country for suicides and drugs. They moved me to the medical wing due to my potential to influence other prisoners into my ideology. I was segregated to a cell by myself, I was let out once in the morning for showers and again in the afternoon for a game of pool. It was extremely lonely and very boring. In the medical wing there was no gym, no library, no education and nobody was given a job. It was 20 hour lock-up every day. I was next door to a transvestite and a 92 year old demented sex offender, as well as a gospel singer who would wake everyone up to the song of “amazing grace” at 6am every morning. We were fed miniscule amounts of food and I lost about 10kgs whilst I was inside. Instead of watching TV all day, I’d write my autobiography or draw pictures and send them to family. It was a distressing time which I still have nightmares about – being trapped alongside my enemies which included drug dealers, sex offenders, thieves, murderers and the darker races who would blast jungle music out their windows at all hours. Time passed extra slowly in prison as I counted off the days on the calendar. Luckily I was released after 10 weeks and let out on tag. The amount of relief you feel when you step outside into the open air is immense! For the rest of my sentence I was badgered and harassed by probation and forced to attend courses which supposedly challenged my “extremist” worldview. As you can see, their indoctrination programmes proved ineffective against me.
You briefly spent time in the English Defence League, knowing that the EDL is a Zionist outlet and after witnessing how Tommy Robinson cowardly attacked you online whilst you were in prison, how do you feel about it now?
I’ve only ever been to one EDL demo with some friends who were National Socialists, and our mission was to educate the people there and bring them over to our side. I’d never go to one again though, especially as they are backed by zionists. It’s more like a football hooligans piss-up than a Nationalist march. I never really liked Tommy Robinson especially when I saw him say on TV that he supported multiculturalism and race-mixing. He is nothing more than an illiterate thug who hates the more conservative principles of the Islamic faith. That’s why me and him will NEVER see eye to eye.
A lot of people are wondering how best they can support you, given that you are not able to keep a social media presence currently. How can people help you at present?
I would welcome support through my fellow comrades such as yourself, Garron Helm and National Action. Every now and again I pop up on facebook to see whats been happening under the profile “Darren Christopher”
What will you do in the event you are sent to prison because of the remarks you made on Facebook and how much time inside are you looking at?
I still think it will probably be a few weeks at most. It’s nowhere near as serious as my previous offense. Still, it is likely I will somehow breach my CRASBO in future unless I contest it in court.
Thank you for your time, we wish you the best of luck in the coming weeks ahead and know that the community will support you.
The Daily Bale will be launching a campaign in the coming weeks, if you wish to support Darren with messages of good-will, financial support or indeed want to take part in our campaign then please get in touch with us at Newsdesk@dailybalenews.com
