A MAN is behind bars for posting chilling anti-Muslim rants online in which he wrote “Give me bullets for my gun – I’ll shoot every b****** one”.

Andrew Littlefair – whose sickening messages came days after the Manchester Arena bombing and the London Bridge terror attack – was described by a judge as “a vile racist”.

The 50-year-old quoted Prime Minister Theresa May, writing “enough is enough” before calling for mosques and the Quran to be burned.

One of the social media postings said “Kick um out wipe them out kill them all”; while another stated “It’s time to unite and fight to wipe out this disgusting desease (sic) they call Islam. My grandad didn’t fight an die for this!!”

Littlefair was arrested after another Facebook user took offence and called police after finding the messages “upsetting and disgusting”, Teesside Crown Court heard.

Littlefair initially told police the six posts were a “joke” – then blamed a lager-induced hangover – but when he tried to apologise on the social media site, he descended into another anti-Islam rant.

“I’m getting hauled in by the police for freedom of speech,” he moaned.

“Certain people can have freedom of speech but not the white man. Look at what happens to them because of their race. Sorry for being a white Christian.”

When friends asked him what was up, he wrote that he was in trouble for saying “a few home truths”, and insisted that he would “rather be locked up” than hold his tongue.

Littlefair, of Trefoil Court, Norton, near Stockton, admitted six charges of publishing threatening religious material intending to stir up religious hatred, and was jailed for 20 months.

His lawyer Robert Mochrie described Littlefair as a “keyboard warrior” and said: “He doesn’t have the intelligence, frankly, to be able to express himself in a more careful way.”

He said the posts were were “nothing more than utter stupidity, mumbling nonsense”.

But Judge Simon Bourne-Arton, QC, disagreed, saying they were the racist postings of a vile individual, and being drunk or hungover was no excuse.

He said the posts followed the two terror atrocities in Manchester and London which had caused outrage.

“They went to the very heart of our democracy, they were appalling events and of course they resulted in a lot of ill-feeling towards certain sections of society and a lot of emotion,” he added.

“It was a time for people to be calm in the truest traditions of this country, it did not require people like you to stir up racial hatred.”

The posts - over four hours - were made the morning the London attack which claimed 11 lives, including the three attackers, and soon after a bomb at an Ariana Grande gig claimed 23 lives in Manchester.
