As you know, this little blog has covered Feminazis, the Pink Mafia, radical Islam, PCers, Them and a few others but it has never addressed the BNP or abortion. That’s because I’m in two minds about these issues and don’t know what to say. Suppose I’d better get into this BNP thing as everyone else seems to be having his/her tuppence halfpenny worth.
For a start, I’d not join the BNP because I don’t like Griffin – he’s so typically the Hitler bully boy and all protestations about reasonableness and patriotism bely his actions. If he says there was no holocaust, then he can go to hell although I’d hate to see him incarcerated for it, as that plays into the hands of the very people I rail against – those who’d jail someone for disagreeing. Look at Obama on Fox at the moment. Sheesh!
At Blogpower, in early 2007, we had a Great Schism when we lost a lot of hard-won members, including some pretty vital bloggers who refused to carry BNP members in the blogroll. One of our BNP members, Wayne, I have a secret liking for [not that way – no]. He was so funny in his manner and I enjoyed his posts. Half the time he made sense and I agreed with him.
But he was BNP and that’s almost a crime over here.
How opponents of the BNP can possibly justify publishing member lists, refusing them a platform when we are decrying why LPUK and UKIP can’t get platforms in major debates either is beyond me. These are the same bullyboy, underhanded tactics that they’re accusing the BNP of. Look – it’s coercion.
Now, the last thing I want to see is a rabble of brownshirts formed into ranks and marching up and down the streets. The history of thugs taking over the streets in times of economic woe is well documented. It’s a recipe for disaster, detracts from and hijacks legitimate [as distinct from professional] protest from middle England or Britain.
Did you see that youtube as an ASBO approached a biker’s front door, the biker took his c–p for a few minutes then bopped him. What a low-life coward that ASBO was, an utter waste of space. And yet he has a right to live and if he’d been given some sort of values somewhere, he’d be more productive but that’s getting into the whole argument about what’s happened in this country over the past few decades.
Against this, some of the more recognized bloggers [including one who was with me in the Weblog Awards in 2007] are either BNP or BNP sympathizers. Wayne asked, legitimately, “Have you ever been to one of our meetings? Have you? We talk about policy and stuff and people behave like.”
Wayne was booted out of Blogpower, no matter what anyone says, because he took the piss and someone shopped him over it. That was all. I still like him. Some of the BNP visit and comment on this blog but left-liberals also have an open voice here and I’m sure not going to shut them down, just because I disagree.
Anyway, in some matters, I’m further right than Attila the Hun myself, especially on The Family and I’ll say now I agree with the thrust of what Enoch said, if not his undoubted prejudice which he kept in check. I’m extremely p—ed at the moment that the white, ageing male is an endangered species in the workplace and is actively discriminated against by hypocrites.
They have the nerve to say this is racist and yet all official bodies run this questionnaire on ethnicity. I say run NO questionnaire on ethnicity – what’s a person’s race to you? If you run such a questionnaire, then you’re as racist as hell yourself and you’re discriminating against a section of the population, an unpopular section admittedly, of which I’m a part.
They call it “positive discrimination”. Weasel words. Falsehoods. Constructs. Self-delusion. It’s bloody racism, call a spade a spade [oops – may use that word these days?]. Look, there’s an ethnic stock called British, which leans Celtic, which leans Anglo-Saxon and that’s who we are. Now, anyone else who wants to work hard and make a life for themselves – fine. My Paki shopkeeper down the road here and I share a joke every day about something or other, insofar as he can speak English but he’s got more right to respect than that white ASBO who attacked the biker.
There’s got to be some common sense here.
Yes, get across to Griffin and his henchmen that his stormtrooper tactics are not British and not welcome. But at least let him on the platform because he does head a party which is an established party in the UK. Some of the things he says echo conservatism and are essentially correct. Ditto le Pen in France. Some of the things the Lib Dems say make sense too.
Common sense. Discretion. Sanity. These are what’s required.
