BBC News’s Surrender To The English Defence League.

with 2 comments

In Britain, the elites often use understatement in English to convey their meaning or downplay a problem so the winter chaos is really just seen as a “little problem”.

International conflicts can be conveyed as “a temporary difficulty”, normally this would not be a problem but BBC News has taken it one step further.

For the BBC News, the neofascists in the EDL are “controversial”.

Instead of being racist thugs, the BBC News now calls them an “anti-Islamist group”.

Any competent journalist, or those able to access the Internet, would realise that the EDL are considerably more than a “controversial anti-Islamist group”, they are a proto-neofascist street gang, with ex-BNPers and stuffed full of neo-Nazis.

This is the appalling BBC News story.

Oh, someone hacked the EDL’s servers and their membership list is doing the rounds, along with the names of those cretins that purchased EDL merchandise.

PS: ANYONE remotely tempted to defend the EDL should read my comments policy, again.

  1. The EDL must give some the same broken heart that I get when people who share my patriotism start this nonsense about racial hygiene. It is easy to laugh at utopians of all types. You expect them to say ignorant and hateful things in a self righteous tone.

    It is a much harder thing when someone shares the same passion as you and just gets it wrong. I have always been an advocate of the big table of equals brand of Americanism based on our founding documents. I try and explain that racial power scams makes a mockery of who we are as a nation.
    The UK has a different history, but this must drive some up a wall similarly.

  2. Well, it’s not just cretins that bought their merch. Don’t forget their “support the troops” donation scams. So the membership could basically include anyone with some vague sympathy for British servicemen and a gap in their web-sense.
