Leave Them Kids Alone

Teachers in England should not be banned from membership of the British National Party or any group which may promote racism, a review has concluded. The government commissioned the report after a leaked list identified 15 BNP members as teachers.

Yeah because institutions full of young impressionable minds at the mercy of authority is just where you want fucking Nazis. How the hell is the parent of any child who is not white and straight (and let’s face it, male, don’t recall a lot of positive feminism from the BNP unless it is- outbreed the immigrants you chattel bints) trust a teacher who not only supports the BNP but loves fascism and racism so much they join the frickin’ party. And- any group which may promote racism- together with folding on faith schools is government education, education and education policy to just keep replicating the same idiocies and prejudices of their generation? (while denying future generations the funding for university they had in abundance… sorry kids we fucked your planet and your education but here’s the good news you are now so unhealthy from pollution and dumb from neglect you don’t give a shit, here have another prozac chew, to think you used not to able to buy these in sweet shops, progress!).

BNP Continue To Be Not At All Racist

A new piece of tat is added to their awful online souvenir shop-

(from Lancaster Unity) Queen Elizabeth I’s Blackamoore Expulsion Order It is not widely known that between 1596 and 1601, Queen Elizabeth I ordered the expulsion of all non-indigenous Third World people, whom she called “blackamoores” from Britain. Now, for the first time ever, Excalibur is proud to exclusively offer reproductions of the original expulsion orders…Both original handwritten orders have been reproduced in full on fine quality thick paper, suitable for framing or display.

Hmm, now why would a totally not-at-all-racist party be selling that so proudly?????

EDL’s Epic Fail In Wrexham

After the on the spot reportage now the Daily Post weighs in-

FOUR people were arrested at an anti-Muslim demonstration amid a strong police presence in Wrexham. Around 40 members of a group calling themselves the Welsh Defence League (WDL) shouted racial abuse and gestured towards locals, saying they were protesting against plans for a new mosque. Four people were arrested for public order offences, and North Wales’s Temporary Deputy Chief Constable, Ian Shannon said the day passed without “significant incident”. Meanwhile Unite Against Fascism held a counter-protest, near where the WDL gathered on Saturday.

And a Wrexham Communities Against Racism festival attracted around 200 people. Residents were joined by faith groups, the Wales TUC, Searchlight, Unison and members of Wrexham Council. Searchlight Cymru secretary Ian Titherington said none of the WDL protestors were Welsh, and they appeared to be members of the English Defence League (EDL). He said: “This was the final humiliation for the EDL’s disastrous visits to Wales. The only way they could hold an event was to bus in 30 from Bolton, who on arrival went to the nearest pub, got drunk and bawled out racist chants.

The EDL gathering did not exactly sell any local links, by displaying a Bolton Wanderers FC English flag and singing God Save the Queen.” The WDL was formed in June 2009 as an off-shoot of the EDL, which claims to campaign against Islamic extremism. The group insists it is not fascist. But at a march in Swansea in October, onlookers were confronted by jeering men giving Nazi salutes, and one was arrested for a racially aggravated public order offence.

An EDL supporter posted a short video (subtitled ‘Outnumbered and we still stand our ground‘ thus admitting their low numbers and it’s not so much ‘stand our ground’ as milling around where the cops said to stand so your small group doesn’t disrupt the traffic or any passing badgers) in which you can hear no Welsh accents, they chant EDL not WDL, plus the worst/funniest murdering of God Save The Queen I have yet to hear (a piece of music that is so droning, joyless & plodding it is almost impossible to wreck it, yet somehow…they do!). You almost feel sorry for them, I don’t think this is endangering any kind of no platform policy, propaganda’s meant to improve your image, not demolish it. Comedy gold-

Anti Fascists Outnumber EDL Morons 2 to 1

A good day for Manchester, would have been better if the EDL hadn’t bothered, but nonetheless, I suppose friendless bores & bigots rarely perceive when they are not welcome. Live site at the Manchester Evening News.

I would also add worth reading is this tangled tale that involves the racist senior EDL operator Paul Ray of the lamentable Lionheart blog, apparently forging online identities to create fake terror stories to smear Muslims with and the corporate media go along with it. No really, try to be surprised. This is in addition to the fine work of Tim Ireland @ Bloggerheads. Seems a number of racist fantasists form the backbone of a terror porn creating cabal that help keeps the war on terror bullshit flowing in tabloid land, all with a common trait of rabid Islamophobia. Of course creating incidents to gather support is a very old fascist tactic and that Patrick ‘once fired for racism‘ Mercer MP the Tory Chairman of the Commons sub-committee on counter-terrorism and erstwhile shadow spokes-mannequin for Fatherland ‘Homeland’ security is involved is so far being ignored by that same corporate media.

Hope Not Hate Says-

I’ve just received some bad news – the BNP have just won a seat in the European Parliament. It is terrible news for our country.

While the BNP will take a seat in Brussels they will not represent me – they are not going there in my name.

I’ve just launched a petition saying just that: BNP – not in my name. We will deliver this petition to the European Parliament on the first day that their MEP takes their seat. I’d like you to sign the petition as well – let’s show the rest of the EU what we think of this new MEP:

http://action.hopenothate.org.uk/notinmyname

I am disgusted that the BNP have at least one MEP.

We will deliver our petition to the European Parliament – I want you to add your name and then get your friends to join in as well.

Let’s send a deafening message of defiance: NOT IN OUR NAME.

Thank you so much for all that did during the elections – but now our fight for Hope Not Hate must go on.

Stop Fascists With Your Vote

European elections: There is a clear danger that low turnout could hand over first Euro seats to BNP fascists

Some political commentators have used recent opinion polls to write off or play down the threat that the BNP might get its first Euro MP seats next month. The Observer’s Nick Cohen says he found evidence of a BNP surge ‘hard to find’. Others have said that ‘the threat from the BNP has been overblown’.
Unite Against Fascism believes these arguments are dangerously complacent and run the risk of undermining the effort to mobilise the anti-fascist vote on 4 June. We think there is a very real danger of the BNP winning seats in the Euro elections.

Opinion polls tend to underestimate support for the BNP (In 2004 opinion polls placed the BNP at 3% but the party actually received 5%. Populus and ICM use phone polling techniques, which often underestimate BNP support. YouGov uses online polling.) and factors such as regional variations in the BNP vote and the higher proportion of BNP supporters that are likely to vote also have to be considered. These factors suggest that recent polling by Peter Kellner and YouGov, published by the Telegraph on 18 May, may be a more accurate predictor of BNP support. This places the BNP with 7% of the vote nationally. When this is adjusted for regional variations, this suggests that a low turnout would leave the BNP is on course to win three seats – though it would need a national vote of around 10% to win a fourth and around 12% to win any more.

More recent polls by Populus, published by the Times on 30 May, and ICM, published by the Sunday Telegraph on 31 May confirm the recent growth in recorded support for the BNP and also suggest the party is currently on course to win Euro seats. William Hill, the bookmaker, quotes odds of 2/5 against the BNP winning a seat (ie. they are strong favourites to win a seat).

The latest YouGov poll, published in the Daily Telegraph on 1 June, places the BNP on the same 7% nationally as in the previous YouGov poll. A regional breakdown has not yet been published. But the key reason why we need to take the BNP threat seriously lies in wider political factors rather than technical ones. Unemployment now stands at 2.2 million and look set to rise further. This creates a pool of anger and despair that can be rapidly sucked in by the BNP’s racist message of blaming migrant workers and ethnic minorities for the recession.

Moreover, growing cynicism about the integrity of major financial institutions has now spread to cover MPs because of the scandal over parliamentary expenses. This is being dramatically reflected in polling. Those commentators who suggest that ‘the BNP is struggling’ or failing to ‘gain from the expenses scandal’ have failed to recognise the recent gains the BNP has made in the polls.

The local elections in 2006 in Barking & Dagenham show how quickly support for the Nazi BNP can rise. That election saw the BNP go from almost nowhere to 12 councillors in the space of a few weeks. It stands as a warning to us all. Attempts at talking down the BNP vote will not cut any ice.

As Peter Kellner puts it, ‘It’s a tiny margin between getting no seats and getting three seats for the BNP.’ As in 2004, a higher turnout could stop the BNP from winning any seats. It is imperative that we raise the alarm and urge people to vote against the BNP fascists on 4 June.

In its Euro election campaign, the BNP has repeatedly made overt appeals to win the votes of those who support a racist political agenda that blames black and Asian people for the country’s economic and social ills. Nick Griffin’s description of black and Asian British people as ‘racial foreigners’ that need to be ‘repatriated’ shows that the BNP now believes it can be more open about its racist and neo-Nazi policies in order to consolidate its share of the vote.

The anti-fascist movement must respond to this political escalation with an urgent appeal to the anti-racist majority to use its vote and stop such policies becoming an ‘acceptable’ part of the political mainstream.

BNP Euro seats will lead to in racism being seen as a legitimate part of political debate. Every progressive cause will be under greater attack if the fascists manage to make an electoral breakthrough. And the lesson from mainland Europe is that stopping such a breakthrough is much easier than reversing it.

Fascism Is For Failures

The BNP are racists & fascists, who revel in violence and eugenics. If you vote for them, so are you. Don’t kid yourself, this isn’t politics, you’re a piece of shit. Clear?

The Guardian… the anti-fascist organisation Searchlight has spent months infiltrating the far right’s network of websites and chatrooms and found that many BNP activists share O’Sullivan’s views.

 They include:

 • Jeffrey Marshall, senior organiser for the BNP’s London European election campaign. Following the death of David Cameron’s disabled son Ivan, Marshall claimed in an internet forum discussion: “We live in a country today which is unhealthily dominated by an excess of sentimentality towards the weak and unproductive. No good will come of it.”

 Later, in response to comments made by others on the site, Marshall is alleged to have written: “There is not a great deal of point in keeping these people alive after all.” He said the comments were private and some had been paraphrased and taken out of context. He admitted making the former comment, but said he could not recall making the latter one in an email to the forum, a copy of which is in the Observer’s possession.

 • Garry Aronsson, Griffin’s running mate for the European parliament in the North West, posts an avatar on his personal web page featuring a Nazi SS death’s head alongside the statement, “Speak English Or Die!” Aronsson proclaims on the site: “Every time you change your way of life to make immigrants more comfortable you betray OUR future!” He lists his hobbies as “devising slow and terrible ways of paying back the Guardian-reading cunts who have betrayed the British people into poverty and slavery. I AM NOT JOKING.”

 • Barry Bennett, MEP candidate for the South West, posted several years ago under a pseudonym in a white supremacist forum the bizarre statement that “David Beckham is not white, he’s a black man.” Bennett, who is half-Jewish according to the BNP’s deputy leader, Simon Darby, continued: “Beckham is an insult to Britishness, and I’m glad he’s not here.” He added: “I know perfectly respectable half-Jews in the BNP… even Hitler had honorary Aryans who were of Jewish descent… so whatever’s good enough for Hitler’s good enough for me. God rest his soul.”

 • Russ Green, MEP candidate for the West Midlands, posted recently on Darby’s web page: “If we allowed Indians, Africans, etc to join [the BNP], we would become the ‘British multi-National party’ … and I really do hope that never happens!” Darby said he echoed Green’s sentiments.

 • Dave Strickson, a BNP organiser who helps run its eastern region European election campaign, carried on his personal “Thurrock Patriots” blog a recent report of the fatal stabbing of a teenager in east London beneath the words “Another teen stabbed in Coon Town”. The site also carried a mock-up racist version of the US dollar entitled “Obama Wog Dollar”. Darby said the BNP did not endorse these comments and described them as “beyond the pale”.

 When confronted in the past about the extreme views of some of its members, the BNP senior hierarchy has often tried to dismiss them as unrepresentative of the party’s core membership. But it appears that they run right to the top of the party.

 Lee Barnes, the BNP’s senior legal officer and one of Griffin’s closest allies, has posted a video on his personal blog of a black suspect being beaten by police officers in the US and describes it as “brilliant”. Barnes adds: “The beating of Rodney King still makes me laugh.”

 Barnes told the Observer his comments were “nothing to do with colour” but were merely a reflection of his belief that the police should have more powers to punish perpetrators of crime by “giving them a good thrashing”.
