Top BNP member gives a Hitler salute at Breivik tribute

The Sun has done some good digging today:

TWISTED BNP chief Chris Hurst gives a Nazi salute at a fascist gig by the singer who inspired massacre monster Anders Breivik.

Hurst, the BNP’s London Regional Secretary, cried “Sieg heil” as pop girl Saga sang the Norwegian fiend’s favourite songs at a rally in Hungary.

The warped 22-year-old reckoned the victims were needed to “breed” to increase the white population.

And blaming immigration for Breivik’s shocking slaughter, he added: “Isolated incidents like that are going to happen more and more as the problem gets worse.”

Read the full piece here

Two points to note: he blames immigration for Breivik’s actions, echoing other people on the right who predict more such far-right terrorism on the basis of immigration.

Second, note how he also focuses on the demographics of white identity versus minorities.

    Surely not?

    “Second, note how he also focuses on the demographics of white identity versus minorities.”

    Surely not?

    This tactic of embellishing news to make it sound more extreme is disgusting when tabloids do it to demonize Muslims, and it is sad when Sunny and Jai do it as well. We should be better than to distort an already extreme rethoric and nazify it by saying it is someone’s final solution (hello Godwin’s Law?) , which really trivialises a genocide.

    Similarly, there is nothing in the article that suggests that this BNP idiot attended a concert that made a tribute to Anders Breivik. The facts are already disgusting enough, and damn you for forcing me to defend scum.

    a cover of an anthem, Tomorrow Belongs To Me, by neo-Nazi English band Skrewdriver.

    Cabaret?

    Really informed comment from The Sun.

    he has links with jobbik too, who breivik did admit to appreciating – http://thoughcowardsflinch.com/2011/08/04/proof-again-if-it-were-needed-the-bnp-are-fascists/

    gabe who is ‘forcing’ you do anything. ‘concern trolling’ of a quite ludicrous kind here.

    The warped 22-year-old reckoned the victims were needed to “breed” to increase the white population.

    Six years ago this idiot was still at school. Why should anyone care about the opinions of someone so young and stupid?

  7. damon — on 5th August, 2011 at 10:49 am  

    Just seen the BNP have chucked him out of the party :)

    It’s on their website if you can bring yourself to look at it.

  8. Sarah AB — on 5th August, 2011 at 7:19 pm  

    damon – I thought you might find this piece interesting.

    @Don

    Stormfront aficionados won’t admit that Tomorrow Belongs to Me was written in the 1960′s for the musical Cabaret (by a couple of American Jews at that). They are desperate to prove that it is a proper German folk song.

    KB Player, @ 9,

    You are taking the piss?

    Aren’t you?

    Or is this yet another, ‘Sadly No’ moment.

  11. Sunny — on 6th August, 2011 at 4:26 am  

    Why should anyone care about the opinions of someone so young and stupid?

    Because these are the people who go around throwing shit through the letterboxes of Asian families, and then claiming their heritage is being destroyed.

  12. Sarah AB — on 6th August, 2011 at 7:25 am  

    Douglas – I’ve certainly heard that too – about the song – here’s a link.

    KB Player & Sarah AB,

    Sorry, I wasn’t doubting that the song was written for Cabaret, I was doubting that even a neo nazi wouldn’t have known that. Seems I overestimated your average neo nazi :-)

    Amything that damages the BNP can’t be a bad thing, but I’ve never been into the ”Nazi” analysis of them. It does sound a bit like that idea of ”mushroom management”.
    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=mushroom+management

    I mean, would you want the BNP having right of reply in The Sun to say why they had promptly thrown this guy out of the party?

    We will always have the far right amongst us, and there are perhaps many ways to deal with them and discuss them, and I don’t care for the AFA/UAF/ANL way.
    But I’ve already said that about six times. I wonder how the Sun got the picture.
    If Melanie Phillips was pictured like that, would it be am image to splash with too? If it helped damage her?

    Rangers fans and Loyalists often get accused of making fascist salutes, when they are most often (but not always) actually making another more local, provincial gesture.

    Sarah AB. Kind of interesting. But I’m a bit ‘EDL’d out’ right now.

    @Douglas

    @ Douglas – I won’t link to those **** but here’s a link to a piece I wrote about this:-

    http://rosiebell.typepad.com/rosiebell/2009/05/youre-a-nationalist-its-not-okay.html

    “The German folk song “Tomorrow Belongs to Me” that predates the nazi era was adapted and slightly altered for that movie. I have a German version of the song. Most know of the version made famous by the band Skrewdriver from his album “hail the new dawn”. If you want the Cabaret version they do sell the original musical score. The song is about nature, optimism and faith.”

    Another Stormfront ascribes the song to Mussolini’s fascists:-

    “Actually, as far as I can remember this song is Italian, originally ‘Il domani appartiene a noi’, which I think originated with the Italian troops fighting in the Alps in WW1, and then had its lyrics changed somewhat and was then used by Mussolini.

    Excellent translation! In truth, I prefer the Italian lyrics to the English ones…the song is being cleansed…we are making it our own. Salve!”

    I decorated my piece with a picture of Nick Griffin’s ex-bodyguard who has a giant swastika tattoo. Now most of the stray googlers to my site are searchers for swastika tattoos!
