The Lord’s army – Onward Christian soldiers!

BF the lords army troublesThis image appeared over at Biffer Towers (Britain First’s Facebook page) overnight last night. In all honesty we were a little intrigued to know just which Lord and who the army was planning to fight.

Was it YHWH?

Was it Jehovah?

Was it ‘God’?

We were pretty sure it wasn’t Allah.

Looking at some of the Biffer imagery a few people even thought it might be Odin or Thor.

Eventually all became clear. It’s the Protestant God of the Ulster Unionists.

Britain First has gone all Irish Unionist again. Jim Dowson’s influence seems to be growing stronger from his hiding place behind Paul’s mother’s sofa.

We wonder how many Biffers realise just how much support they’re lending to the Irish ‘troubles’.

Of course we’ve always known that the Biffers real aim is to start a civil war (or Holy war as Uncle Jim likes to describe it). They’ve never made any secret of that. Usually though their target ‘out group’ for this conflict is the Muslim community. Looking at recent posts from Biffer Towers it appears that they harbour equally violent intentions toward Roman Catholics.

We have to wonder… do the Biffers know (or even care) who they hate or is it just that they’re looking for any excuse for a scrap?

A group of bloodthirsty loose cannons such as this who seem capable of turning their hatred against just about anyone is hardly a suitable role model for social cohesion. On the contrary, Britain First is destructive, bloodthirsty, hate-filled and totalitarian.

Now where have Europeans seen something like that before?

The rules of the game

Today David Cameron gave a speech. It wasn’t just any old speech. It was a speech intended to jump on the Islamophobic bandwagon (not that he’s ever really been ‘off the wagon’).

EBF Cameron divisive extremism speech the rules

When Team EBF read about it we despaired. This speech is just another blatant attempt to pander to the petty xenophobia and Islamophobia that pervades British society. What could he be playing at?

We’re sure that other people will have wondered the same thing. So we thought we’d try to identify the rules of this divisive game.

The rules of the game (Divide and rule)

The game involves two teams

Team 1 is called ‘us’

Team 2 is called ‘them’

Team 1 players (us) are allowed to know the rules

Team 2 players (them) are not allowed to know the rules (it’s a rule)

Whatever the score Team 1 (us) always wins

Most players start the game in team 2 (them)

Team 1 (us) has to win the game by keeping all the other players trapped within team 2 (them)

Team 2 players (them) have to try to get into team 1 (us). This is extremely hard to do

Team 1 (us) wins by making team 2 players (them) think they’re part of team 1 (us) when really they’re still just another bunch of team 2 players (them). This is extremely easy to do

Team 2 (them) players pretend to win by creating other groups of ‘them’ (sometimes referred to as teams 3,4,5 etc) ad infinitum

Team 1 (us) strategies include…

Telling some team 2 (them) players that they’re actually team 1 (us) players, even though they’re not. This makes team 2 (them) waste a lot of time and energy fighting amongst themselves (teams 3,4,5 etc) whilst team 1 goes on to score

Team 1 players (us) sometimes pretend not to support each other, although really they (we) do. This is called ‘statesmanship’

G20 summit 2

Sometimes team 1 players (us) pretend to support some but not all team 2 players (them). This is called ‘politics’

Team 2 (them) only succeed by working together to defeat team 1 (us). In the event that this appears possible team 1 players (us) must invent further subdivisions within team 2 (them). It’s a rule.

Subdivisions created by team 1 (us) may include ‘the poor’, ‘the indolent’, ‘the immoral’, ‘people from the wrong religion’, ‘people with the wrong skin colour’, ‘people who think it’s OK to tell team 2 (them) what the rules of the game are’ (the people in this last subdivision are usually known as ‘lefties’)

Team 1 (us) scores when their (our) players make lots of money at the expense of team 2 players (them)

Team 2 (them) players are never allowed to score (it’s a rule).

Any success in scoring any point by team 2 (them) will always constitute cheating and the umpire must return the advantage to team 1 (us) in all such situations

Umpires are ALWAYS team 1 players (us)

In the event that any player from team 2 (them) looks like they’re about to score any team 1 (us) player can appeal. In this event the umpire (us) must always declare a ‘foul’ and return the advantage to team 1 (us). That’s a rule too

Sometimes Team 1 players (us) pretend to let team 2 players (them) score but only when ensuring that team 2 players score an own goal at the same time (this strategy is typically known as ‘we’re all in it together’)

The game ends in a team 1 (us) victory when team 2 players (them) destroy each other completely

Unfortunately destruction of team 2 (them) would mean no more opportunities for team 1 (us) to score

So the object of the game for team 1 (us) is to keep team 2 (them) fighting each other but without letting them destroy themselves entirely

The game ends when…. well actually the game never ends.

Rule bookUmpire’s note…

The rules are defined by team 1 (us) & can be changed retrospectively by any umpire (us) if any team 2 players (them) seem close to actually joining team 1 (us) or scoring in any other way not explicitly described within these rules.

In summary….

Team 1 is ‘us’. ‘Us’ always wins. Team 2 is ‘them’. ‘Them’ always loses. It might sometimes look possible for them to become us but we will never allow that. The game depends upon there being lots of them for us to score from. So the rules are made by us to keep them trying to stop being them and to become us. That encourages them to follow the rules set by us. Different parts of us pretend to like different parts of them to maintain them in different groups, each striving to become us. The rules demand that different parts of us keep shifting our allegiances between different parts of them to keep them from scoring (which is always against the rules set down by us unless accompanied by them also scoring at least an equal number of ‘own goals’). The umpire’s decision is always final. The umpire is always us.

Simple, isn’t it?

Lonely hearted Biffers

We get a few trolls on the EBF Facebook page. We also have the misfortune of having to trawl our way through the mountains of written bile that fascist Biffers leave on their own Facebook page(s). And one thing is extremely striking…

They generally have few friends outside of the fascist community and few interactions that  don’t involve other Biffers.

Of course that’s not terribly surprising. Paranoid neo-nazis aren’t the most appealing people in the world. They tend to be unreasonable bullies who aren’t used to or even capable of seeing things from anyone else’s point of view. That’s why they’re paranoid neo-nazis.

BF lonely hearts club

So now we know why they’re so committed to Britain First. No other organisation would ever accept them and they have no normal friends because they’re nasty, paranoid neo-nazi scumbags.

Serving justice

Last month Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen, Leader and Deputy leader of Britain First were issued with an interim injunction in the High Court. This forbade them from doing various things including inciting racial or religious hatred and distributing material by electronic or other means likely to incite such hatred.

They have continued to do exactly that,in spite of the injunction.

EBF imprison Paul Golding Jayda Fransen

Ignoring the ruling of the High Court is a very serious offence. It can result in several years imprisonment.

Exposing Britain First believes that the time has come. These neonazis have been inciting racial and religious hatred, radicalising ordinary Brits and generally causing unrest and division within our society for years. Now the time has come to stop them.

We call upon the courts to send a message to Britain First and other neonazi groups by handing out the sentence that these two so richly deserve.

Send them down!

The power of hatred

There really is power in hatred.

Hatred isn’t just a mindset, it’s an emotional response as well. Hatred leads to resentment and anger, both of which have been linked to physical and psychological health problems and even to early death. Perhaps that’s nature’s way of limiting the impact of our species’ most destructive individuals. They die a little sooner than the rest of us.

Hatred doesn’t only have the power to kill the haters though. It has the power to kill the hated too. Haters become so locked in their own sad, hate-filled worldview they come to believe all sorts of atrocities are acceptable.

Take the recent case of the neo-nazi white supremacist who attacked an innocent man with a machete just because of the colour of his skin. And as you read the article pay special attention to the phrase…

“…radicalized on line”

That’s why we work so hard to counter Britain First’s lies.

Hate yoda meme fear anger suffering hatred

Because that hatred has power.

Because that hatred kills people.

How would that be?

Sometimes it’s hard to see the wood for the trees. It can be difficult to know who to trust in the ‘information age’.

Everywhere we turn somebody is pushing their message at us. What to buy, how to live, how to look, what to believe, who to pray to, what to wear, who to vote for and who to trust. There are so many of these messages bombarding us all, every minute of every day that it’s confusing and overwhelming.

Dutchy & Folding speech bubble BF Fransen Golding EBF Trust me

If only someone could make it all stop. If only somebody could take away all the complicated decisions and make everything simple again – like it was when we were children. Wouldn’t that be good?

Would you like someone to hold your hand, to make your decisions for you, to make the world’s problems simple to understand and then to give you a ready made way to feel good about your part in solving them?

Would you like that?

How much would you pay for that feeling of simplicity, even heroism that comes from total support for a superficial cause?

How much would you pay to be able to ignore the things that don’t fit your simple, uncomplicated world view? Things like this, for example…

Subscriptions to Britain First start at just the price of a pint and a kebab for Folding Golding. For that you get to convince yourself that you understand both the problem and the solution. You even get to imagine that you’ve ‘done your bit’ for the cause.

How would that be?

Everyone loves a trier – apparently

The latest Britain First campaign is so silly it’s a joke. They’re raising a petition about a problem that will be solved well before their petition could have the slightest impact anyway.

EBF BF temporary mosque craven campaign 1

This temporary Mosque in yorkshire has hit a few problems from the locals. They don’t like the noise that inevitably emanates from a house of worship that is effectively a tent at the end of the road. Fair enough.

For their part the Mosque’s officials have explained that the delay in removing it was caused by unavoidable building delays at their permanent Mosque. They have assured the local residents that work will be completed and the temporary Mosque dismantled by the end of August.

Fair enough? Not for Britain First, it seems…

BF temporary mosque craven campaign 3

In truly undemocratic style they’ve launched a campaign to ask people who don’t live locally to intervene over this local planning issue. That’s not how local democracy works. Some local people have complained and their complaints should be taken seriously. They should also be balanced against all the other opinions and existing planning and legal principles affecting the local area. They should not be overwhelmed by a national and international campaign orchestrated by a group of Nazis whose only reason for taking an interest is the fact that the case involves Muslims.

EBF BF temporary mosque craven campaign 2

These people and their hate-filled, racist agenda are becoming more and more obvious every single day. We wonder why they don’t mount campaigns against temporary churches (there’s usually one or two in the country at any one time) or the sound of church bells disturbing people as they enjoy a Sunday lie in. Actually we don’t wonder at all. It’s obvious. Campaigns against temporary Christian churches wouldn’t give them an opportunity to whip up anti-Muslim sentiment.

We can’t imagine how awful it must be to inhabit the mind of a Biffer, day in and day out. There must be so much petty hatred and paranoia in there leading them to launch campaigns like this one. They really are more to be pitied than blamed.
