    Neo-Nazi threat highlighted

    by Rumbold on 4th July, 2009 at 12:07 pm    

    The Chief Constable of West Yorkshire police has highlighted the threat of neo-Nazis in Britain, noting that in a recent operation, rocket launchers, grenades and other weapons have been seized.

      I wonder why none of this was front page news? Very odd.

      A group called the “English Defence League” protested in Whitechapel last Saturday. Same group who protested in Luton.

      Didnt make much news

      Out of curiosity, I went on their site to see what all the fuss lately was about and found this little gem.
      THE British National Party is going to set a new higher standard in politics when their two MEPs-elect, Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons, take their seats in the European Parliament on July 17th.

      In both the North West and the Yorkshire & Humber regions the BNP MEPs are setting up a social fund to directly benefit youngsters in their constituencies.

      Nick and Andrew will be contributing to the fund, via the European Parliament, by donating their excess travel and accommodation expenses.
      It is common practice amongst MEPs for this balance from the generous allowances to be kept for personal gain, but the BNP’s commitment to clean-up politics mean this money will now go to those in the constituency.
      Both MEPs have already pledged to give 10% of their wages to independent community groups in their constituencies.
      Any takers from the other (expense grabbing) parties?
      No? I thought not.
      Of course you will not post this it’s too near the truth, isn’t it.

      I’m in awe of their altruism. Or cheap grandstanding. One or the other.

      And your quite right, obviously they didn’t post your comments.

      (Why do people say that - you won’t post this? if you are right no-one ever knows and if you are wrong you look like a whining victim-monger. It’s a no-win tactic)

      “Of course you will not post this it’s too near the truth, isn’t it.”

      Good, let’s have the details then. Who’s going to be choosing and who’s going to be running the projects that result from this? It would be great if, say, they reflected the ethnic makeup of the areas represented by Mr. Griffin and Mr. Brons. We wouldn’t want, say, projects picked only in areas with one particular ethnic group predominant, because that’s what those nasty socialists do, isn’t it?

      Their strategy is rather predictable: they will set up a miserable fund for white people only, there will be an outcry by the media and by ethnic organisations that play with identity politics for their blatant display of racism, and the BNP will point out that there are organisations that cater minorities only, why can’t they fund the poor indigenous people who once again are being screwed by the evil minorities and the elites?

      Meanwhile, their neo-nazi agenda is once again obfuscated, while their credentials as the voice of the people goes up.
