“Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of “need.” The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.”
The second of Britt’s characteristics of fascism is so unBritish it’s really hard to see how anyone could possibly combine this profound malice with the extreme Nationalism of the first characteristic. And yet that’s exactly what Britain First tries to do.
Their contempt for the human rights of non-white citizens (British or otherwise) is breathtaking. Britain First regularly ignores and undermines established legal process to call for the execution and torture of Muslims, Asians, immigrants and others despite their being acquitted of crimes or indeed, not even accused of any.
For Britain First the fact that someone worships in a Mosque is enough to warrant them being gang-raped, burned alive, beaten to death or even sent to gas chambers (we wonder where they got that idea from).
One of the most common themes within Britain First’s propaganda is their hatred for the European Convention on Human Rights and the UK Human Rights Act. The call for both these pieces of law to be revoked goes out almost daily in one form or another.
Like every other fascist group, Britain First is committed to removing Human Rights for all but themselves. This makes them everyone’s enemy. If you’re not a Biffer yourself you’d be at risk if the Biffers ever gained power in UK.
