  • Man in Burkha demands a ban on Burkha, while alongside an Indian flag??

    This is unintentionally the most hilarious video ever by a bunch of wannbe-extremists. The idiots from the English Defence League have released it:

    Note - he is actually standing alongside a flag of India! And another one with the Sikh Khanda on it! I can just imagine the Sikh groups being very happy about that (not).

    Richard reports:

    A video statement has also been released, explaining that “Tommy Robinson”, the EDL’s pseudonymous leader, has been arrested on “racial” charges, and that armed police allegedly raided both his home and that of his parents (the speaker then goes off-topic with an attack on the neo-Nazi Blood & Honour, who are the subject of a new report from the Centre for Social Cohesion and Nothing British). The speaker is standing in front of an upside-down Union Flag, which perhaps is a deliberate sign of distress; why the Indian flag to his left is also upside down is less apparent (thanks to a reader for spotting that).

    I bet they don’t even know the Union Jack and Indian flag are upside down.

      and additionally, the Indian flag (in which the green signifies according to Gandhi’s interpretation the islamic community of India) is upside down ;-)

      There was some incident with the BNP having the Essex flag upside down as well

      If he was wagging his finger up and down we’d be nervous

      I like the way he seems to be struggling to read his own statement. Is he affecting thuggish illiteracy, in order to disguise how (surprisingly) well-educated he sounds? Or is he trying to be menacing?

      Actually, I don’t care - it’s just funny. If he REALLY wanted to lose the racist associations, he could’ve tried not wearing the ‘clava…

      Adding to the list of faux pas made by the EDL:-

      They have infringed the benetton copyright trademark by use of their clothing brand: “united colours of …”

      Isn’t that flag upside down? Heh… i believe it makes them liable to be sued under “Insult to national monuments act” in India…

      gosh, why are these people demonising women who do no harm to anyone?

      oh, how very advanced they are to attack Muslim men via their women!
