Labour council candidate suspended after 'Holocaust Hoax' article she shared is exposed

Belgica Guaña is no longer endorsed by the party following JC report


A Newham Labour councillor who shared an article that denied the Holocaust and claimed Adolf Hitler was “completely justified” in persecuting the Jews has been suspended from the party after the JC revealed her shocking post.

Belgica Guaña, who is standing for reelection, shared “The Holocaust Hoax and the Jewish Promotion of Peversity on Facebook in Febuary 2016, which was uncovered by Labour Against Antisemitism researchers.

Several hours after the JC broke the news, the Labour Party said Ms Guaña was no longer a candidate endorsed by the Labour Party.

It is understood that the councillor, who was first elected in 2018, has been administratively suspended pending investigation.

While suspended members are not allowed to run for Labour, as Ms Guaña submitted her election forms before her suspension she cannot be removed from the ballot.

The article shared by Ms Guaña says: “The so-called “Holocaust” is propaganda in an ongoing war between the Jews and those with the courage to stand up to them—a war that began with the National Socialists coming to power in Germany in the 1930s and continues to this very day.

“The Jews do not have the means or the numbers to defeat Europeans with the force of arms so they have to rely mainly on infiltration, subversion, and economic and psychological warfare, with the Holocaust hoax being the best example of the latter.”

It continues: “the Germans were completely justified in persecuting and expelling the Jews (which is all that was actually happening), just as we would be today. Hitler and the National Socialists freed Germany from the death grip of the Jews and gave it back to the German people.”

It describes Anne Frank as a “bisexual degenerate” and says her diary is an, “obvious fraud… laced with pornographic and sexually subversive passages”.

The article concludes: “In fact, as hard of a pill as it is to swallow, the Jews are using their made up story of genocide as the primary tool to pull off a very real, much worse genocide, with the entire White race as their victims!”

It ends with a picture of Adolf Hitler with the words “you should have listened” superimposed on top.

A Labour Party spokesperson said: "The Labour Party takes all complaints seriously. They are fully investigated in line with our rules and procedures, and any appropriate action is taken."

Ms Guaña has been contacted for comment.
