Suspended nurse at the centre of anti-lockdown protests called NHS 'the new Auschwitz'

Soros conspiracy theorist Kate Shemirani shared images of Hitler and the swastika symbol


A leading anti-Covid-19 lockdown campaigner, with a fascination for a dangerous conspiracy theory that places prominent Jews at the centre of a corrupt cabal, has branded the National Health Service “the new Auschwitz.”

Kate Shemirani –  one of the leading figures in a movement that has united QAnon obsessives with far-left and far-right activists  – also repeatedly shared images of Adolf Hitler, the swastika symbol, and made references to the gas chambers in a flurry of online posts.

The nurse, currently suspended from practising pending an investigation into her spreading of untruths about the virus, vaccines and the 5G telephone network, deemed that current measures by the government to tackle the pandemic were comparable to the Nazi Holocaust.

In one social media post Ms Shemiran reacted to a claim that "the Nazi's were amateurs at being a dictatorship compared to New Zealand and Austrailia right now" by writing: "I concur."

In further postings seen by the JC Ms Shemirani also circulated an image casting doubt on the 9/11 Twin Towers terrorist attack complete with the wording “NEVER FORGET … that no plane hit this building.”

The JC was contacted by one angry member of the community who said the were so “disgusted” by Ms Shemirani’s postings they had  decided to notify both the police and the Board of Deputies.

Showing continued fascination with Nazi imagery, the Teeside-born campaigner shared a mock photograph of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg dressed in German soldier uniform with an 'F' rather than swastika badge on his armband.

The wording on the image suggests Facebook is responsible for the spreading of false information about the virus which cannot be questioned without sanction and also renames the Facebook chief Mark *ucker Berg.

On Thursday the JC revealed how Ms Shemirani – who regularly dismisses the Covid-19 crisis as a“Plandemic Scamdemic’’ –  was a believer in the “Committee of 300” conspiracy theory, which paved the way for the notorious antisemitic forgery the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

The idea behind the Committee of 300  is that  an international council that controlled politics, media, banking and the military across Europe.

While the founder of the 1909 theory, the German politician Walther Rathenau said he did not suggest the 300 men were all Jewish, the idea that they were indeed all Jewish quickly took hold.

When Mr Rathenau was assassinated in 1922, his killer cited his victim’s alleged membership of the "Three hundred Elders of Zion" as justification.

Ms Shemirani amade reference to the Committee of 300 in one speech before launching an attack on the “globalist” philanthropist George Soros, and spreading an antisemitic conspiracy theory about Imran Khan, the Pakistani Prime Minister.

In a series of social media posts sent to the JC, Ms Shemirani claimed on Twitter she had first-hand accounts of patients being taken to hospital during the current pandemic who were deliberately allowed to die.

She wrote: “We have yet another professional first hand statement. … Murder. Genocide. The NHS is the new Auschwitz. “

Last month after the government of New Zealand announced new lockdown measures, she wrote “they are going to round you up/or your kids and send you to a concentration camp.”

In another post she wrote of a report detailing how researchers were developing a mask that would glow if Covid-19 was detected “The new cloth Star of David. You filthy disease spreader.”

A further post on Ms Shemirani’s Natural Nurse In A Toxic World online site  writtenduring the weekly Thursday evening clapping sessions for NHS nurses and staff earlier this summer used the Nazi flag with Swastika featuring the words “Clap!!!  Now!!!”

In April, after she was banned from Facebook for 30 days, the controversial activist - who shared a stage with conspiracy theorists David Icke and Piers Corbyn at a protest in central London last month  attended by over 10, 000 supporters – she posted smiling emoji’s before writing “I posted a Nazi meme.”

Challenged over her comments in June by someone posting under the name International Super Jew on Twitter, Ms Shemirani wrote: “International Super Jew.. that title alone means I look no further. Masks and gloves pronto.”

Through her own speeches and online presentations, in which she also explains how she rejected conventional treatment for her breast cancer, the anti-vaxxer has drawn in new recruits for campaigns against an alleged cabal of powerful Satanic paedophiles - and to the QAnon conspiracy theory, which originated in the US.

QAnon banners have been raised at “Save The Children” anti-paedophile protests across the country in recent weeks.

Asked about her repeat references to the NHS and Nazism Ms Shemirani told the JC: "Take a look also at Dr Kevin Corbett article on the Nazification of the NHS. It may be of interest to you."
