Jonathan Jennings from Carmarthenshire has been jailed after he posted a number of messages on the Gab social networking website in which he threatened the Jewish community as well as Muslims and public figures.
He had threatened Jews that if they did not behave themselves, they would share the same fate as Muslims. Another message stated that Hitler was born “100 years too soon.”
In August 2018, Jennings was sentenced at Swansea Crown Court to sixteen months in prison after having pleaded guilty to six counts of publishing or distributing written material intended to stir up religious hatred, contrary to section 29c of the Public Order Act 1986 and four counts of sending communication with intent to cause distress or anxiety, contrary to section 1 of the Malicious Communications Act 1988.
