When politics goes bad

We’ve all heard about political dirty tricks.

We’ve all been scandalised by reports of underhand attempts by tin-pot fascists in banana republics to silence political opponents. We’ve all become used to the principles of representative democracy in which people of all political persuasions are able to get their message out to let the public decide.

In a democracy it doesn’t matter that we disagree – we still have to respect the right of other people to say their piece. Of course there are limits to that. We’re not allowed to incite racial or religious hatred, for example but we can still say what we mean.

Imagine what it would be like if a British political party ignored those hard-won British democratic values and tried to silence their political opponents. Imagine if they did so covertly as though they were some sort of quasi-military intelligence unit conducting ‘black ops’. How would that fit with traditional British values of fair play?

Over the last ten years or so British citizens have changed the way they participate in politics. No longer do we sit passively in front of our TVs or quietly accept newspaper editorials as though they somehow have a monopoly on political thinking. We use social media. This generation, more than any other before it has the ability to discuss, to dissent, to promote and to debate across the political spectrum. And our political opportunities are so much the better as a result.

Imagine if a political party took it upon itself to decide who should or should not have access to social media. To decide who can and who cannot be heard in British democracy. There’d be an outcry – and rightly so.

But, of course – that could never happen here…. or could it?

Well – actually, yes. There is a registered political party operating in Britain that’s trying to do just that. And they’re doing it by underhand means. They even give their covert activities the feel of a military operation, dressing up their dishonest attempts to subvert the freedom of expression of British citizens with terms like ‘intelligence’ or ‘operation’.

Even more hypocritically, they are setting up false accounts intended to complain about other, genuinely legitimate activists whom they falsely accuse of having created false accounts. They even issued instructions to their ‘operatives’ on how to create seemingly plausible fake accounts, known as ‘sock puppets’. The fact that these instructions are laughably superficial and would result in obviously fake accounts isn’t the point. The intention is clear.

And it’s not hard to understand why they’re doing this. They’ve tried silencing their political opponents in other ways already and although they’ve had some success it’s really not been very effective. As much as anything else their attempts to make people ‘go away’ through face to face intimidation or via Email and postal threats have just made them a laughing stock. This ‘political party’ is now understood by all but its most blinkered supporters to be nothing more than a bunch of thugs trying to mask their white supremacist agenda behind real politics. They promote a bizarre definition of ‘Britishness’ that none but the most racist nationalists recognize at all.

So they’re trying a different tack – one that they naively suppose might be more subtle than out and out, in your face aggression. But once again, they’ve got it wrong. Once again they’re just showing themselves up for the undemocratic, unBritish, unpatriotic, unreasonable and uneducated buffoons they really are.

What would you think of a registered political party that so ignored traditional British values of democracy and free expression? What would you say about such a party if it tried to convince you that it was concerned about preserving British values? What would you think of a political organisation that just tries to silence political opposition rather than debate with its detractors?

We know how we’d describe them.

We’d describe them as ‘Fascists’.

They describe themselves as ‘Britain First’!

Hat tip…

EBF gratefully acknowledges the HM Armed Forces past and present that do not like Britain First community for bringing this ‘intelligence’ fiasco to our attention. That’s what happens when real servicemen and women take an interest in tin pot Nazis who merely  dream of playing soldiers on social media. There really isn’t any contest.

It’s truly impressive for a paramilitary style intelligence organisation to find itself infiltrated on its first weekend of operations, isn’t it?

No?

We didn’t think so either.

Following in the Fuhrer’s footsteps

Yesterday we reported on Britain First’s antics in Rotherham. In that post we speculated that Dutchy and Folding might be getting set up in preparation for Lewis and Slattery’s rumoured coup attempt. However, today they released a video of the feckless duo deliberately flaunting the terms of their injunction in front of Rotherham police and on film. Manipulated by Dowson or not – the pair really do seem to be courting their own martyrdom in no uncertain terms.

Just take a look at the video here.

This is clear incitement of racial and religious hatred. There are over 800 taxi drivers in Rotherham. There has never been even the slightest indication that they were all involved in the child abuse scandal and yet Britain First assumes (indeed actively says) that they are all involved – at least the brown-skinned ones.

Rotherham taxi 1 sh

That’s a deliberate strategy to stir up tensions and defame the innocent. That’s why they introduced their illegally posted video of their illegal activities (read the terms of their injunction) with the Islamic ‘call to prayer’. And it worked – the Biffers obligingly got the point and decided that the child abuse tragedy isn’t bad enough in itself. They need to beef it up a bit and make it about race, religion and skin-colour too. Dutchy and Folding must be so proud of them.

They think it’d be a good idea to copy Hitler and boycott Muslim businesses altogether. What a nice little bunch of fascists!

Now let’s just be clear about the terms of the injunction…

BF High court injunction 2 detail 1

We think their behaviour both in Rotherham and online afterwards ticks quite a few of those boxes.

Remember the stuff about ‘encouraging’…

Rotherham taxi 2

So the question we need to ask ourselves is why? What do they think they will gain from imprisonment?

Actually it’s not hard to work out. Their ideological inspiration, the historical leader they’ve copied in so many other ways went to prison and in doing so became a martyr for the cause. He went to Landsberg Jail in 1924 for his role in the failed Beer Hall Putsch. Sentenced to 5 years he spent his time honing his oratorial skills (Dutchy and Folding could both do with some work there) and writing Mein Kampf (My struggle). He was released due to widespread public pressure after only 9 months. The years that followed his brief incarceration served him well, framing him not as the tyrant he was but as the misunderstood martyr for the German people.

But Hitler was a very different animal from Folding Golding.

Golding and Hitler

And Dutchy Fransen is no Rudolf Hess.

Fransen and Hess speaking

And yet they’re trying so hard to follow in the footsteps of the other Fuhrer and Deputy that there really doesn’t seem to be any other explanation. Dutchy and Folding seem actually to want to go down. Perhaps they think there’ll be such a public outcry that they’ll get out early, just like Uncle Adolf did. Perhaps they think that they’ll be set up as martyrs and become unassailable in the nationalist movement because of their temporary sacrifice. Perhaps they really are that stupid.

The truth is that very few people would bat an eyelid if they went down. Of those that would care, the vast majority would celebrate – not least Jim Dowson who’d be sure to make the most of their martyrdom to line his own pockets. Paul and Jayda can rot in jail for all he cares – he’s making money and that’s all that matters to an ideological venture capitalist like Jimbo.

So off you go then Dutchy and Folding. Follow in the Fuhrer’s footsteps all you like. Just don’t expect a happy ending. Hitler’s strategy didn’t turn out terribly well for him and it won’t work for you two tin pot fascists either.

We look forward to covering your trial and subsequent imprisonment. Someone put the champagne on ice – we’ll all be celebrating before too long!

Dutchy & Folding’s broken injunction

Deputy Fuhrer, Dutchy Fransen didn’t feel Dowson’s favour the way she would have wanted. As second in command over a fledgling fascist empire she persuaded herself that she really ought to be a bit more visible. Or perhaps she was persuaded by others who’d much rather see her out of the way. A certain Ms Slatter springs to mind.

Anyway – Dutchy did herself no favours in Rotherham today. She may have played right into Lewis and Slatter’s hands though. Not bright, Jayda. Not bright at all. What was that about not harrassing people or posting distressing or inciteful material on the internet?

Folding Golding has been well and truly in the frame for some time now. He’s pretty certain to get the book thrown at him in the High Court next time. But Dutchy – she’s been a lot less active since the injunction. Until this weekend, that is.

Of course it’s possible that both the head Biffers might fold a little further when the dynamic duo return to court. They might try to pretend that they didn’t know what was happening. We think they’ll be on shaky ground if but hey, who knows?

Both Golding and Dutchy are banged to rights. They even provided the photographic evidence to prove that they broke the terms of their injunction.

They based their ‘report’ on an article from the Telegraph – but unfortunately they didn’t seem able to read it well enough to understand quite what the Telegraph article was saying – and, just as importantly, what it didn’t say…

 

Yes, we know – the irony is just overwhelming, isn’t it?

Take a look at some of the classic Biffer comments that we found gracing this particular thread on their Facebook page. These people, who presumably have lived in UK their entire lives, still can’t handle simple English punctuation, spelling or grammar. This one thinks it’s rediculus (sic)…

We’d be keen to know which ‘British language’ she advocates. We thought Gaelic might be good – or maybe Cornish. Presumably she didn’t mean ‘English’ which owes much more to old German, French and Danish than to any native language of these Isles. Whichever language she’d prefer there can be no doubt that it’s all a ‘Discrase’ (sic)…

We wonder how the Biffers feel about poor punctuation, sloppy spelling, erroneous apostrophes and really, really, really… really long sentences…

This one doesn’t even understand the language sufficiently to know what the article is about. He seems to think that it’s about clothing (a major ‘TERRORIZE’ threat, apparently).

This one concurs, in equally impeccable prose. We can’t help but wonder just what she’s said to her g-children (sic) to frighten them so much over simple clothing.

You have to love the High Court! The injunction issued last month has had the effect we all knew it would. It’s wonderful to see just how easily the allegedly ‘brave’ and unconvincingly ‘patriotic’ Fuhrer, Folding Golding has been muzzled.

Just look at this lovely little offering from the Biffers’ own website…

Those brave boys at Britain First have bottled it again. Before the injunction they were all in favour of using their ‘useful idiots’ to stir up racial and religious tension, cause a bit of a ruck and then, of course, exploit the resulting unrest to claim anti-Christian victimisation from all those evil Mooselimbs!

But that was before the High Court told him to stop being a divisive, racist, Islamophobic scumbag! And it really is about race just as much as it’s about religion…

This statement from Britain First actually copies the earlier statement issued by Uncle Jim’s other money-making scheme, ‘Knights Templar International’. We wrote about that here.

Is Britain First repositioning itself in preparation for Lewis and Mandy’s rumoured coup?

Is Dowson grooming Folding and Dutchy’s successors and shifting direction for the rank and file Biffers themselves in advance?

It’ll take a bit of doing to persuade the ‘useful idiots’ that Folding hasn’t bottled it as he keeps on climbing down like this. A couple of new (but still familiar) faces at the helm would explain the shift in direction very nicely though.

We think that might well explain the ‘dual nature of BF’s recent activities. On the one hand they’re still posting stuff in breach of the High Court injunction. That’ll get Dutchy and Folding out of the way. It’ll even make martyrs of them to boot when the judge sends them down at the next hearing. That’s a 100% win for Dowson. He’ll get a couple of martyrs to play with and he’ll free himself from their incompetence and posturing as well.

On the other hand, is Britain First following KTI’s lead and issuing appeasing statements in preparation for Lewis and Mandy’s takeover following the expected imprisonment of the current leadership? Is this just another ‘long game’ intended to manipulate the gullible ‘useful idiots’ who pay Dowson’s bills?

One thing’s for sure – Folding and Dutchy have made themselves pretty damn toxic as a brand. EBF suspected that was Dowson’s plan anyway the moment he pretended to distance himself from Britain First. The Fuhrer and his Deputy were just the stooges. They were only there to act as mouthpieces for Dowson and to take the fall once it got too ‘hot’ with the legal establishment. Their role was to build up a group of paying racists and assorted Nazis before getting sent down to leave Dowson to profit from their rabble-rousing with a more moderate (but still very profitable) change of direction.

Golding’s still folding as the Templars retreat

There’s a bit of a problem in Bifferland. The empire is definitely breaking up as uncle Jim Dowson desperately tries to distance himself from the monumental cock-up that is Britain First. Perhaps that’s to be expected. His original thirty grand start-up stake to launch Britain First has more than paid for itself but the pitch is getting old and tired now. He needs another angle and he needs it quick – before Folding and Dutchy finally kill the goose that lays the golden egg altogether.

The problem is simple. Out and out racism has fallen out of fashion, which leaves Britain First with a bit of a problem. In fact, their original racist angle has fallen so far out of fashion that it’s difficult to see how they could ever get back on top without a radical overhaul – especially since the recent High Court injunction against them.

But before they reinvent themselves entirely we thought we’d invite them to take a little trip down memory lane. Remember this….

And this….

Ah those were the days. This was Britain First back in the heady days when they could say what they meant. Those were the days when the racist mantras still fresh. Those were the days before the High Court told them to stop spreading racial and religious hatred.

EBF BF white genocide black history month race

Those were the days when they were quite prepared to admit their racism and religious hatred because it appealed to the uneducated and the easily led. A fool and his money is easily parted, as Britain First know only too well. But fools tend not to have bottomless pits of money and those funds seem to be running out (even allowing for Britain First’s laughably transparent, published ‘accounts’).

So Golding is folding once again. This time the Biffers’ ex BNP, ex NF leader is pretending not to be racist. So, it seems is Dutchy, the former EDL ‘angel’. Both now tell us that they’re not racist at all! How strange.

Its little wonder that Uncle Jim Dowson is ditching them, is it? Folding and Dutchy are surrendering to the High Court and Dowson’s other money-spinner, the Knights Templar International is condemning their deeds if not their names…

It’s odd that KTI chose to use a 5 year old picture of an early EDL rally instead of the much more appropriate Biffer screenies above. After all – those EDL lads had nothing to do with Golding’s proposed art competition. But then Dowson doesn’t want to risk alienating current BF supporters while there’s still money to be had from them. So he condemns Golding’s actions but not his name.

Either way, Folding and Dutchy are being hung out to dry and everyone knows it.

Such a shame. We’ll be sorry to see them go! They’ve been a very entertaining double act.

Jason Manford – a stand up making a stand

Well that was amusing. Once again the self-proclaimed saviours of Britain’s beleagured white folks, Britan First, have proven just how inadequate they are outside of their heavily censored, online echo chamber. This ridiculous bunch of bigoted nazis would like us to pretend that they’re a serious force protecting us from the threat of domestic violence. But they can’t even beat a stand-up comedian in debate.

Jason Manford did what loads of other people we know have been doing for years. He deleted Britain First supporters from his list of social media contacts. After all – who wants to be associated with violent racists, Islamophobes and fasicsts? The Britain First response was hilarious.

Jason Manford BF Springtime for Hitler swastika

First they called him a pervert, then they posted a publicity picture for the show ‘Springtime for Hitler’ to try and pretend he’s the Nazi, not them, then they sent their keyboard warriors after him, then they noticed how badly they were losing yet another ideological argument and deleted almost all their Facebook posts about him, except for the one where people are calling him a paedophile. This seems to be the standard Biffer insult and is based upon the following logic…

  1. Some paedophiles are Muslims…
  2. Therefore all Muslims must be paedophiles…
  3. Britain First hates Muslims…
  4. Anybody who opposes Britain First must be a paedophile lover…
  5. Paedophile lovers must be paedophiles themselves…
  6. Jason’s a paedo!

Of course there’s no evidence at all that Jason Manford is anything of the sort. There is evidence of overwhelming support for his stance against the fascists of Britain First.

Jason Manford rebuttal BF Britain First likes shares

Even in their own Facebook echo chamber, Britain First lost the argument with many of their own supporters criticising the way they responded. That’s why the posts were deleted.

The only argument that seems to have a chance of being plausible is the one about ‘thought police’. It goes something like this…

“People have a right to like Britain First. They have a right to agree with Britain First’s fascist, racist policies. They have a right to share Britain First’s images online if they want to.”

And that’s true – they do have that right.

And Jason Manford, along with so many more of us has the right to choose not to be associated with those nasty, racist, fascist, Nazi bastards! People can support Britain First all they like but they really shouldn’t expect decent people to ignore their betrayal of the democratic, egalitarian principle that our ancestors fought so hard to preserve during World War II.

They fought fascists with guns. Jason Manford is fighting the modern British Nazi party with words. He’s a stand-up comic who, like many modern comedians is also standing up for something very serious. Jason Manford is standing up for democracy.

Good for him!
