The following quotations are taken from hate mail received by Prof. Tanja Bueltmann of Northumbria University, and shared by her on her Twitter account in pictorial form. Among the sexual insults, the accusations of treason, and the threats of ‘Coxing,’ beheading, deportation, and rape, the reader will note the repetition of the phrases ‘will of the people’ and ‘enemy of the people’ given credence by the British government and press, along with the word ‘remoaner,’ an echo of the term used by Nazi Germans to describe those who voted for liberal parties in the election of 1933.
Bitch move on, U LOST!
You think you’re a professor when really you’re just a dumb slut.
The stupid kraut bint
You can contribute in your own county bitch. Deportation coming soon.
Shut up you German cunt
She’s probably led Germany to escape the rapefugees.
Coxing. That’s what’s in store for you.
All EU migrants should be kicked out the UK, their belongings confiscated.
Let’s gang rape that dirty EU whore.
The worst kind of enemy alien: a foreign cunt living of the tax payer.
So you came to the UK as an immigrant as you couldn’t get a job in the EU and you want the UK to remain in the EU because? Twat.
You absolute fucking cunt.
Your head on a pike at London Bridge... as a historian you must know that that is what we do with traitors.
Foreign cunts like you should be forbidden to speak on British streets.
I would not fuck you if someone paid me for it.
Looking at those women undermining the will of the people. It’s clear what you all need.
Today you looked simply ridiculous. Who do you think you are you stupid cunt?
I want you to be deported. You are an enemy of the people.
Bitch with no cleavage. That really makes a nasty woman. So I agree with you.
Did you still not get the message? We do not want you. We do not want you to undermine the will of the British people. We do not want you to speak. We want you to leave you silly cow.
You and Kay [the reference is to Madeleine Kay, an entertainer and pro-European activist] — of one kind: dumb as fuck and thinking that we care about your stupid campaigning. You are both ridiculous and bring shame on women everywhere.
Remoaners call you their hero. I did not know that they were so stupid. Your no hero. Your a foreign cunt.
How dare you continue to speak in public. You’re not British and this is our country.
You are a traitor and a disgusting bitch.
How ugly are you. And how dumb. A stupid pink shirt will no stop Brexit.
