On this day in the world of far right politics

October  18th seems to be a bit of an issue for Nazis. It’s a day of atrocity and its repercussions. This was the day in 1942 when Hitler commanded the execution of captured allied commandos.

It was the day in 1945 when the famous Nuremberg trials began and senior Nazis were called to book for their crimes against humanity committed against combatants and non-combatants alike.

It’s also the day in 2014 that Britain First returned to Hexthorpe in South Yorkshire – and this time they’ve brought reinforcements.

OK – whilst Britain First’s invasion of South Yorkshire isn’t exactly an ‘atrocity’ it does reveal a fairly atrocious attitude. They’re there for no other reason than to pour fuel on the fire of civil unrest within a diverse community. The hope is that by turning up and pretending actually to care about the residents of Hexthorpe they might gain a bit of publicity and maybe even a few Facebook likes and shares to boost their rather transparent claim to popularity.

But it seems appropriate to remember what happened the last time these self-appointed ‘defenders of the faith’ visited Hexthorpe. They were beaten back by a small group of pre-pubescent children. The courageous captains of the Christian Patrol turned tail and fled when faced with little more than a small child with stabilisers on her bike.

The first ‘Battle of Hexthorpe’ (helpfully described here by Exposing Britain First) has gone down in the annals of the British far right as a great adventure, a jolly jape of epic proportions but in fact the truth is somewhat different. As you can see the vicious horde that drove back Britain First’s intrepid expeditionary force wasn’t exactly the most fearsome – not even for South Yorkshire let alone the deserts of the middle East.

I may be wrong but I don’t think this bunch of neoNazi numpties would be very effective at all when faced with armed (adult) insurgents from ISIS. Then again – they’re hardly likely to find many of those on the streets of a small South Yorkshire town, are they? They’ll find plenty of kids to play soldiers with though.

Who knows, one day they might even win a game.

 

Exposing Britain First: Some slideshows

Britain First is an extreme right wing, political party that behaves more like a bunch of street thugs than a democratic organisation. The few policies they have are based upon xenophobia and religious or racial discrimination. Britain First incites violence and hatred.

It disturbs me greatly that they have managed to develop and maintain such a presence across social media. I hope it will disturb you too.

Here’s a short (3.5 minutes) video from ‘Exposing Britain First’ showing precisely why Britain First is such a dangerous organisation.

This one lasts 15 minutes

And here’s a longer one (35 minutes), also from ‘Exposing Britain First’ with a bit more detail.

They’re racist scumbags whichever way you look at it!

Ineffective by design (but not on a school night)

 

EDL Downing Street piss up 140920Today the almost defunct English Defence League, together with assorted factions of fellow fascists descended on Downing Street in huge numbers. Estimates vary as to the exact size of the demonstration piss up with some claiming as few as 15 of these uneducated, bigoted numpties storming the capital. Certainly they haven’t even reached triple figures, in spite of the hype.

Not that it matters very much. Today is Saturday. Even if they were to get through the gates and past the permanent police presence they’re hardly likely to meet any actual politicians.

In summary then Londoners (at least the few Londoners who can be bothered to notice) have been ‘treated’ to an ineffective display of collective weakness by an equally ineffective (and very, very small) bunch of nobodies who lack the foresight even to check what day of the week it is. By the look of things in this picture nobody even noticed apart from the very small number of coppers judged sufficient to contain this massive crowd tiny little band of neoNazis,

Of course it may be that they chose Saturday because many of their demonstrators wouldn’t be able to attend on a weekday school night. If that’s the case I shudder to think how few attendees this fading group of far right has-beens would have ended up with had they waited until Monday! Then again, judging by the level of argument that these people typically employ (and an almost total inability to use the English language) I seriously doubt that any of them attended any school at all beyond the age of about fourteen twelve nine.

And these people claim to be part of the superior (some of them even dare to say ‘Master‘) race!

‘Britain First’ – The last thing Britain needs

Look familiar?

Britain First would have you think that UK Muslims (less than 5% of the UK population) are attacking the British way of life. Of course, they tend not to define that ‘way of life’ because to do so would mean acknowleging the long British traditions of tolerance, fairness and mutual acceptance.

So they borrow tactics from the Nazis instead….

image

They isolate and scapegoat a minority group. Sometimes they dress up and pretend to be soldiers while they’re at it.

image

They dehumanise and over simplify the characteristics of that group.

image
image

They denounce all who stand up to their lies.

image

And they make fools of anyone who doesn’t know any better.

These people are hardly ‘Master race’ material, are they?

Right wing racism through the decades

These all appeared for different reasons on my twitter timeline today.

Today in 1936 Jesse Owens, an American won a gold medal at the Berlin olympics. Not surprisingly Hitler refused to shake this black athlete’s hand.

Then this conservative party poster from 1964. It seems likely to be Australian in origin but please tell me if you know different:

It’s not a million miles away from this:

And then I saw this hilarious youtube video about modern day racists ideas of hate mail.

Even now in 2013 there is no room for complacency. Racism still exists, however backward we know it to be, and it’s a real threat to our society.

Maybe the person who created this final picture had a point.

Still think the EDL isn’t racist?

Have a look at this report from EDLreview. http://edlreview.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/edl-is-not-racist.html?m=1

EDL member jailed (BUT THEY’RE NOT REALLY VIOLENT)

Thanks to Nick Lowles of ‘Hope not hate’ for posting this news report on the conviction of a ‘would-be’ arsonist, EDL and Combined Ex Forces (CXF) member from Wales.

Today a small number of similairly fine, upstanding examples of the ‘master race’ are strutting their intolerant stuff on the streets of Burnley and Sheffield.

No doubt they’ll be driving the Taliban from the town hall steps with their usual chants of…..

“Allah? Allah? Who the fuck is Allah?”

And, significantly given recent events ….

“Burn a poppy and we’ll burn a mosque!”

I’m sure the good people of Burnley and Sheffield feel safer already.

After all there’s nothing quite like a bunch of law abiding, zeig-heiling, Nazi-saluting, racist arsonists to inspire confidence, is there?
