A music video uploaded to YouTube early on Thursday calls for the decapitation of former UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage. The video features Islamic State propaganda as well as Black Panthers and Nation of Islam imagery, and was created by a failed grime/rap artist called “Zebadiah”. The video, which comes just months after British Member of Parliament Jo Cox was murdered in her constituency, features a man wearing a Nigel Farage mask in a Guantanamo Bay detainee jumpsuit. The star of the video, Prophet Zebadiah Abu-Obadiah (real name Robert Bealer) – who attracted a miserable 30 votes when he stood for election in South Thanet in 2015 – can be heard rapping with lines such as “Chat shit, get Rigby’d”, a reference to the British soldier Lee Rigby who was brutally murdered by Islamic terrorists in London in 2013. The video begins with a voice whispering “off with their heads” and contains a number of references to the Islamic State including a real ISIS video overlay, and a satirical version of the ISIS flag. The song’s lyrics include: “Farage, off with his head. Tommy Robinson, off with his head” as Zebadiah stares hypnotically into the camera. The music and imagery
