Britain First and the BNP

We’ve made the point before that Britain First is really just a racist, white supremacist bunch of malcontents. You can find the evidence here, here, here, here and here among other places. Of course the Biffers always deny their obvious racism whenever it’s pointed out. But that’s hardly credible. Especially when they post Facebook memes like this…

BF BNP Nazi anti white racist

The photograph is of an anti British National Party (BNP) rally. Interestingly – the placards we see don’t mention race – they are very clear. This group of protestors are objecting to the BNP’s fascism. The protestors rightly point out that the British National Party is a neo-nazi organisation and their protest is on political, not racial grounds. Ironically, it’s the Britain First caption that brings race into the equation. But they’re not racist – apparently.

It’s not all that surprising that Britain First supports the BNP. After all it was founded by BNP members and many of its hierarchy are former BNP activists. In fact, as we demonstrated in an earlier post the Britain First hierarchy is choc full of ex British National Party, ex English Defence League, ex National Front cronies. So it’s hardly a shock to see them conflate politics with race, is it?

And what do you imagine the rank and file Biffer sheep make of all this?

Would you expect these fine, upstanding, ‘non-racist’, ‘not at all fascist, honest’ citizens to call their Biffer leaders out on the obvious mistake of equating anti-Nazism with anti-white racism?

Might it be reasonable to expect the occasional objection from Biffers who don’t see politics as a race issue?

Well it might – if there actually were any Biffers who weren’t also white supremacist. Let’s see the sort of comments that actually appeared on the Britain First ‘echo-chamber’ (we mean ‘Facebook page’)…

BF biffer comments about anti BNP activists

John McKenna’s comment is interesting, isn’t it? Let’s paraphrase it for those readers who don’t quite get it yet…

“We at Britain First are so committed to freedom of speech and democracy that we’ll lock up everyone who doesn’t agree with us!”

  1. And Gary’s comment is quite ageist and presumptuous. Why is it a frequent right-wing rhetoric that when people “grow up”, they will abandon left-wing ideologies? As if having a house will suddenly make one a bigoted wanker.

    I’ve had many jobs and once paid a mortgage, and yet I despise everything that BF stand for. I guess I must not be grown up enough yet.

  2. Yep, I would be one of those. I’m 36, married with two children, a mortgage, and a decently paid job. Where would the biffers categorise me? Lol
