Former UKIP chair Julia Gasper has accused the late David Bowie of being a gay member of the Nazi power and a reverent Aleister Crowley follower who “dabbled in the occult.”
Gasper, previously Chair of UKIP Oxford, now serves as a Parish Councillor for Risinghurst and Sandhills for the English Democrats Party.
Dr. Gasper is vehemently critical of the LGBTQ rights movement. This week, she lashed out at Bowie in a blog post, writing:

The news you care about, reported on by the people who care about you:
“David Bowie was not the only famous queer Nazi, not by a long, long way.
“In fact there is a remarkable affinity between the two things. Many famous queers have been Nazis and vice versa.
“The Brixton skinhead Bowie is an example of something rather widespread and typical.”
She also calls to attention Bowie’s prominent lyrical references to mysticism, saying that he “dabbled in the occult” and often referenced occultist Aleister Crowley.
Dr, Gasper added: “Nazis in Germany had a similar fascination with occult, pagan and pseudo-mystic ideas that lent a veneer of intellectual respectability to their immoral doctrines.”
As for Bowie, he had links to many unsavory groups and ideas. He dabbled in the occult and the words of some of his songs allude to Aleister Crowley and his so-called Golden Dawn movement.
I’m closer to the Golden Dawn
Immersed in Crowley’s uniform of imagery.
Garbled scraps of cabbalistic teaching appear in Bowie’s songs, and in 1995, he confessed to an “overriding interest in cabbala and Crowleyism.” Golden Dawn is a quasi-Nazi movement itself, and one alternative title for it is “Great White Brotherhood”. The Nazis in Germany had a similar fascination with occult, pagan and pseudo-mystic ideas that lent a veneer of intellectual respectability to their immoral doctrines. The Crowley cult is supposedly occult but its main attraction for showbiz people has always been its reassuringly non-intellectual fondness for group sex, drug-taking and homosexuality.
