I really wouldn’t have believed this if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes. Britain First released their manifesto this afternoon. They’ve actually outlined their priorities and intentions. These are the policies they’d try to implement in the extremely unlikely event that they were ever actually to gain any power in UK.
What’s most striking to those of us who know a bit of history is the obvious resemblance this manifesto bears to the 25 point plan of Hitler’s Nazi party. Of course it’s no surprise that they adopt Nazi policies – they are Nazis after all. What’s so remarkable is the fact that they’ve hardly bothered to conceal the fact. It’s true that they use different wording in places but the intention is clearly the same.
But don’t just take my word for it – see for yourself.
I’m loathe to send traffic to Britain First but if you really want to check the examples below you can find the ‘manifesto’ on their facebook page. The 25 point plan of the German Nazi party can be found here.
Just like Hitler’s Nazis, Britain First is a party of isolationism. They understand that fascism is harder to maintain in a country that maintains its links with other countries. That was true in the 1930s and its true today.
Britain First wants to withdraw from existing international treaties and pave the way for its own, very different deals with selected countries.
Britain First has much to say about citizenship. They’re not quite so blatantly racist here as Hitler’s party was but when you read this alongside their intentions regarding immigration and ‘those of foreign descent’ it becomes clear just how similair the two parties actually are.
It’s worth noting the definitions of ‘citizen’ used in these manifestos. Britain First has made it very clear through numerous demonstrations and hateful comments on facebook threads that they consider non-whites to be inferior. Their use of the word immigrant is synonymous with non-white and Eastern European – a fact amply demonstrated by their hateful online activities. They want to halt spending on non-whites and needy immigrants/asylum-seekers to attempt to ensure more money for white Brits. Hitler’s Nazis said the same thing in different words.
These clauses are so similair they need no commentary from me.
Whilst I’d question Britain First’s statistics (especially the 15,000 pensioners freezing to death each winter) their meaning is clear. Adolf and Hermann would be so thrilled with them.
Remember the definitions of citizenship. It seems that only those people who Britain First agrees with will be allowed to vote. That should make re-election easier.
Funny, I thought we’d managed to develop a more comprehensive syllabus suited to a complex world. Then again – teaching kids about justice and fairness isn’t quite in keeping with Nazi ideals. Perhaps they should have thought about the reality of modern UK before stealing from an 85 year old document from a different land.
Not sure about the ‘Christian assembly’ part and the focus on ‘real’ trades and skills at the expense of more cerebral subjects. It’s almost as though they want to breed a nation of biddable, unthinking workhorses (or ‘race-warriors’).
Hitler was obsessed with military rearmament. He knew that war was inevitable as Nazi desires became manifest. It seems that Paul and Jayda are of the same mind.
Oh yes – they want to dictate religious preference too
And finally look at this. The neo-Nazi numpties at Britain Frist have surpassed themselves with this one.
