For many years, Nigel Farage, leader of Ukip, has used the existence of the BNP as a doormat on which to clean his boots. He has conveniently pointed to the existence of the BNP as a racist organisation – an Orwellian term devised to close debate – to deflect criticism of Ukip. Proudly, to deflect criticism of his party, he has stated that no one who has been a member of the BNP is permitted to join Ukip – thus denying his party thousands of activists that Ukip lacks.
In Edinburgh, on 16th May, a clearly shocked and frightened Nigel Farage experienced what all Patriotic Nationalist activists have known for years – the hatred of the hard left mob.
As the International Business Times reports: “However when he arrived at a press conference in Canon’s Gait pub, Farage was heckled by a group who yelled “homophobe” and “scum” at him.
They then followed him out of the pub and onto the Royal Mile, where the famous Farage grin began to sag quickly.”
And from the BBC, Farage is quoted as stating:
“I’m sorry but I don’t think that is the way that normal, legitimate political debate takes place. Normally you at least do the courtesy of listening to somebody else…”
The BNP and others of a similar persuasion have, for years, been denied debate. For years, BNP members and supporters have been confronted by the mob. In one well documented instance, a member of the BNP was attacked and nearly killed by a claw-hammer. That we know, this incident and numerous others have never been condemned by Farage. Never, have we heard Nigel Farage defend the free speech of nationalists and we are not aware that he has ever condemned the activities of the myriad of left wing fascists who have organised mobs to attack those of our political persuasions.
Now that the BNP has collapsed – the attention of the loony-left mob will increasingly focus on Farage and his party that they have elevated to ‘New Fascists/Nazis on the block’ status.
