The English Defence League issued the following public statement yesterday on the EDL’s official Facebook page where they finally confirmed that they are indeed motivated by racial reasons.
A screenshot of the EDL’s statement is displayed below:
Here is the transcript:
In the last 66 years we as a nation, as a race have had our national identity stolen from us by politicians who have forced us to accept multiculturalism. They have and still are practicing cultural genocide on their own people, despite warnings that we will not accept it. They have forced us to accept the dilution of our heritage and history by the implementation of laws which will stop us from rising up, even if that’s just to voice an opinion.
Any action which has the aim or effect of depriving us of our integrity as distinct peoples, or of our cultural values or ethnic identities. Any form of population transfer which has the aim or effect of violating or undermining any of the rights of the native or indigenous people. Any form of assimilation or integration by other cultures or ways of life imposed on us by legislative, administrative or other measures is cultural genocide.
And unless we find our backbone and stand up to the ones who are committing crimes against the English people we shall continue to be subjected to slavery by a British elite aided by outside influences whose only intention is to destroy us from within and wipe us out as a race.
So much for the EDL’s previous claims that they are not racially-motivated and are opposed “only to extremist Muslims”.
The references to immigration and the alleged wiping out of the English “race” are, of course, particularly hypocritical when you bear in mind that EDL leader “Tommy Robinson” aka Stephen Yaxley-Lennon himself is actually the son of Irish immigrants.
The EDL’s statement also inadvertently confirms the findings of the recent academic report on the EDL by Dr Matthew Feldman and Dr Paul Jackson of Northampton University, particularly the following conclusions on page 56 of the report:
From the outset, among leaders and followers it is clear that the EDL has had sustained connections with the BNP and other extreme-right groups. Moreover, the EDL might profess itself a single issue, counter-jihadist movement, but its failure to adhere to this line leaves it looking like all previous racist extreme-right groups. This failure makes it even more difficult to ignore the neo-Nazi methods, antecedents and current connections of the EDL’s leaders and its followers…..The EDL engages in doublespeak that powerfully questions their claim to be a single-issue, non-racist movement.
More information and analysis of this development is available via EDL News and Hope Not Hate. It also turns out that part of the EDL’s public statement is practically identical to the statement made by the mass-murdering Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik during his court appearance just two days previously; more details via Exposing the EDL.
*With thanks to the New Statesman for promoting my article last Friday.
· The EDL have now formed an alliance with the Far-Right “British Freedom Party”. Some initial information here and a more detailed article here; the latter includes a direct URL link to the relevant section of BFP leader Paul Weston’s blog, where Weston has published a diatribe on what he refers to as “the ethnic cleansing of the English”. The Independent have just published a detailed article about the EDL’s alliance with the BFP, including the fact that EDL members will be able to stand in local elections as BFP candidates, along with the fact that EDL leader Stephen Yaxley-Lennon has been invited to join the BFP’s executive committee. Of course, Weston’s own twisted logic would mean that, as the son of Irish immigrants, Yaxley-Lennon himself is contributing to the so-called “ethnic cleansing of the English” that Weston is complaining about, although the irony appears to be lost on the BFP.
· The British Freedom Party’s Constitution is publicly available on their website. A great deal of it is very similar indeed to the policies of the British National Party (BNP). Furthermore, it is worth noting that the BFP’s desire to ban what they refer to as “outward signs of multiculturalism/religious & cultural separatism etc” will, by definition, target Sikhs, Hindus and Jews as well as Muslims (for example, it would mean that Sikh turbans, karas etc would be illegal). It is also worth reading the BFP’s policies targeting non-Christian places of worship, which (again by definition) would include Sikh gurdwaras, Hindu mandirs and Jewish synagogues as well as Islamic mosques. There are of course further ramifications for any British citizens living in England who are not of English ancestry (once again, ironically that would also include Yaxley-Lennon and his Irish parents) or indeed anyone whom the BFP & EDL regard as “insufficiently English”, with everything that implies.
