Lionheart GB tries to cash in on Tunisia shooting tragedy

Many far-right UK groups have a habit of hijacking tragic events.

Lionheart GB, which has been accused by critics of being tied in with far-right group Britain First, were caught trying to make money through the recent terror attack in Tunisia.

A day after the shooting, they shared an image that offered thoughts for the families and friends of those who were killed. But in the text was a link which directed people straight to the ‘Patriot Store’, an online store which sells t-shirts, badges and other merchandise.

This is the page people are directed to when they click on the link in the post.

A shop. Lionheart GB has exploited the deaths of innocents for financial gain.

Coincidentally, the Knights Templar International group also shared this post with the same text and the same link to the shop.

To all those who don’t know, this is the same group Britain First is promoting on its website and getting people to join. It is believed Britain First run this page too.
