A SPECIALIST who uses her productive social media activities to routinely beat up Nicola Sturgeon, her party and the Scottish government in general has compared the SNP to the Nazis.
Janet Hood, who runs a training and consulting company out of Brechin, Angus, claims to be one of Scotland’s top licensing attorneys with over 30 years of experience in the field.
Her Twitter activities include regular retweets of material from Tory party figures and journalists as well as tweets from budding politicians, avid soccer fans and RT broadcaster George Galloway.
Hood also appears to be a fan of Graham Grant, the home affairs editor of the Scottish edition of the Daily Mail. He tweeted Monday about what he called “A Day of Shame” for the SNP after Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill MP Steven Bonnar was criticized for allegedly saying “nationalists are ready to die.” to fight for our country “.
Grant’s tweet also featured a mail story dealing with Treasury Secretary Kate Forbes, claiming she supported “only Gaelic housing projects”. Quoting Grant’s tweet, Hood added the comment, “Are these people crazy? What if you speak Polish? Urdu? Hindi? French? As a mother tongue and not Gaelic? But have you a rudimentary English on how hateful this Scottish xenophobia party is. Don’t put your X there. ”
During the holiday season, Hood retweeted several of Galloway’s tweets, including this response to the Quisling label: “This is a Scottish nationalist who calls me a quisling. The SNP was founded by actual quislings. Who worked with Hitler? Who wanted to benefit from a fascist invasion? Who was INTERNED! Who wrote poems that said, “London is on fire, I don’t care”. ”
Another she retweeted was a plug for his new political outfit: “I will try to gather and lead those who want to see the end of the separatist rule of minorities in Scotland. End the neverendum and bring real politics back to a country in a new Britain freely and safely. I hope you will join me behind @ Alliance4Unity. ”

Links to Galloway’s tweets disappeared from Hood’s Twitter feed late yesterday.
However, she also cited a tweet from Edinburgh user Kevin Hague on Tuesday claiming he lived in a country where “the failure of individuals to disagree with the ruling party’s desire to break up Britain leads to corporations be boycotted. People who are professionally verbally abused and charities urged to join if they want government funding. ”
Hood commented: “Scottish National Socialist Party – Heil”, a clear reference to Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers’ Party.
When The National confronted her yesterday, she said, “I worry about things like the hate crime law, which I worry about because it is not taken into account and is likely to have the ability to speak freely. And I’m also concerned about the fact that the SNP seems to be very good at supporting their own … one was sent to various non-profit organizations in Glasgow, most of them going to people with a prominent SNP person in the directorships. And I worry about such things. ”
When we asked if it was acceptable to compare the SNP with the Nazis, she got a little reluctant and said to us, “Um, I don’t really know. Basically, if you read Twitter a lot, you have to think about it, but I don’t want to talk to you. Thank you very much. ”She then hung up.
The Law Society of Scotland, which professionally regulates Hood, said it would not act unless an official complaint was filed.
