Internet troll Joshua Bonehill-Paine has been found guilty of racially aggravated harassment for publishing a series of anti-semitic blog posts about Labour MP Luciana Berger.

Bonehill-Paine published the posts in October 2014 after a fellow far-right activist Garron Helm was sent to prison for tweeting a picture of Berger with a Star of David on her forehead with the hashtag ″Hitler was right″. Bonehill-Paine posted that the ″number of Jewish Labour MPs was a problem″ as well as calling Berger ″an evil money-grabber″ with ″a deep-rooted hatred of men″. The posts were part of the ″Filthy Jew Bitch Campaign″ orchestrated by US based white supremacist site Daily Stormer.

Bonehill-Paine was already serving a three year four month sentence for trying to incite anti-semitic demonstrations agains the ″Jewification″ of parts of London.
