Gerry Gable’s innate dishonesty is not confined to the all-pervasive international Nazi conspiracy; the man seems totally incapable of telling the truth even in mundane matters. This dishonesty extends even to fabricating his family history. In 1997, Gable filed a 44 page autobiographical witness statement in the consolidated libel actions Baron v Gable 1993 B4482 & 1994 B2491 (which were eventually settled to the current writer’s satisfaction). Gable’s witness statement is a remarkable document. Among other things he accuses me of disparaging his father. No offence was intended Gerry, but if you don’t want me to tell the truth about your dear old departed Dad, you shouldn’t tell lies about him.

In January 1995, Gable contributed a one-off column to the left wing magazine Socialist Review in which he claimed that his father had served in Bomber Command for six years during the Second World War. When however the current writer contacted RAF Innsworth he was given a slightly different version of events. The reader is invited to compare what Gable says in Socialist Review with what he says in his witness statement with what the authorities say. Walter William Gable served in the Royal Air Force for four and a half years as a conscript, the same as countless others. The tales of his heroism are typical Gable fabrications.

At page 5 of his witness statement, Gable repeats a story that he has doubtless told many times before. * His first encounter with overt anti-Semitism, and an incident that had a profound effect on his future political development, was at the age of ten when he was abused by an anti-Semitic schoolteacher who told the class that the Jews had killed Jesus. Poor Gerry had to run home under a hail of stones.

We only have Gable’s word that this incident happened, but there are good reasons to believe that it didn’t, at least not in the way that Gable claims. In a letter dated 14 May 1997, John Warburton of the Mosley Archive/Friends of O.M. said “...I would suggest that no teacher would have spoken in the manner described by Gable.”

Writing in the American Jewish magazine Commentary in February 1963, Norman Podhoretz describes a similar incident. In a lengthy essay MY NEGRO PROBLEM - AND OURS, Podhoretz recalls his childhood growing up with Negro boys. His best friend was black, and one day on the way home from school Carl hit him and announced that he wouldn’t play with him anymore “because I had killed Jesus.” The six year old Norman ran home crying, and his mother cursed “the goyim and the schwartzes”.

In his essay, Podhoretz asks himself is this was a true memory or did he imagine it. He concludes that the incident really happened.

Unlike Gable’s claim about the schoolteacher, this anecdote has the ring of truth. It may be that Gable had read the article concerned, which is not extremely unlikely both on account of his well-documented propensity to meddle in race relations and his interest in contemporary Jewish affairs. Whether he has or hasn’t, he certainly knows his Jewish history and will doubtless have read many books about or which touch on classical anti-Semitism, including perhaps Cecil Roth’s excellent study THE JEWISH CONTRIBUTION TO CIVILISATION.

This is a fascinating read, no less where we are informed at page 26 (of the 1956 edition) that in the Middle Ages “On Good Friday, in many places, they were stoned by the rabble and buffeted by the authorities - sometimes with fatal results.”

It is not, I suggest, Gable’s own (mythical) suffering at the hands of his schoolmates spurred on by an anti-Semitic or simply cruel schoolteacher that he remembers, and resents, but the historic persecution of his race - real and imagined - by the wicked Aryan goyim. It is this resentment that has made him what he is: an arch-liar and manipulator, a scheming, duplicitous, little Jew filled with a seething hatred of a society he would like nothing better than to destroy.

* See for example Life in the shadow of the fascist threat, by Martin Shipton, published in the Northern Echo, September 2, 1989, page 6.
