The Red Roar can reveal another fifteen Tory members’ offensive Facebook posts as the party faces a deepening crisis over Islamophobia in its ranks.
Earlier this week the Conservatives suspended fourteen members whose Islamophobic comments were revealed by the “Racists for Rees-Mogg” Twitter account. In a sign of how widespread the problem is, The Red Roar has now identified a further fifteen members who have made offensive posts.
Other prejudice is also rife in groups of Tory supporters. One member described Graham Norton as “an odious little Irish queer” who has a “political agenda,” while others promoted conspiracy theories about the influence of George Soros on world events and the murder of Jo Cox.
All fifteen have identified themselves as members of the Conservative Party in replies to a post in the Jacob Rees-Mogg Supporters’ Group on Facebook.
The cases have been passed to Conservative Party chairman Brandon Lewis, who has so far resisted calls for an inquiry into the party’s racism problem.
1 Tony Fell
Shared a video with the subtitle, “why Muslims kill for Islam,” and referred to the “osmosis” of Islamic influence on British politics. Elsewhere he stated that “the biggest problem” is “Governments weaponising against their own people,” and referred to Sadiq Khan as “the king rat of the most polluted sewer in the UK.”

Shared a Russia Today article claiming that George Soros was implementing a plan to create a “Muslimized Europe” through immigration, referring to the far-right “Kalgeri plan” conspiracy theory.
