British National Party legal officer Lee Barnes has laid a criminal charge against Ghanaian-origin rap singer “Lethal Bizzle” after he called for Nick Griffin’s murder on Twitter.
Lethal Bizzle, whose real name is Maxwell Ansah
, sent out a Twitter message yesterday which read: “Got an idea, u wanna be famous? Kill the BNP leader, u will be a hero.”
Mr Barnes said this was a threat which could not be taken lightly.
“He is linked with black gun gangs in London and this constitutes a serious threat,” Mr Barnes said.
“Imagine if a threat like that had been issued by Mr Griffin against Mr Ansah. The BNP leader would have been arrested within minutes, but it seems that black rappers are somehow protected.”
* A sample of Lethal Bizzle’s lyrics from one of his recent collection of jungle noises
(which the controlled media calls “music”) reveals all that is needed to know about the nature of Mr Ansah:
“I’ll crack your scull
leave u fucked up in da wheel chair
try 2 clash this evil breeh
rude bwoy fi just seckle
don’t let jamakabi ga draw fi d metal
not d gun
me draw for d belt buckle
I mek a bigga boy feel say im likkle
just swing my belt roun like a num chukal
bus u head
n mek your head n mek you blood start trickle.” — Lethal Bizzle, lyrics to “POW.”
