One thought on “Homophobic Violence Ernie Smith & Venom”

  1. Smith is a real demagogue, pandering to the lowest common denominator. I heard that at the same time he was also defending a gay man in court who had been charged with buggery or gross indecency. This video shows we have to keep up the pressure.
