Doing the Dewsbury shuffle

Britain First have just published their report of yesterday’s shambolic shuffle through Dewsbury.

BF Dewsbury sleet storm

A maximum of 119 pseudo-patriots (AKA racist thugs) braved the sleet (BF had promised them fine weather).

BF Dewsbury weather forecast

We don’t know which forecast service they were using to dupe their gullible followers but even with that ridiculous lie they still couldn’t muster many. They got less attendees than the 130 or so they had at Burton which itself was less than previous marches. Their numbers are in decline and they know it. That’s why they hadn’t bothered to book a large venue for their ‘Britannia social’ in a local pub. They knew well in advance that hardly anyone would bother to attend.

It’s worth noting the camera angle in the photographs they published on the BF website. It’s not really usual to take pictures looking up at the backs of protestors so we need to ask just what the photographer was trying to achieve. We think there are two reasons.

BF Golding Dewsbury Town Hall steps out of boundsFirstly – it makes it impossible to get a sense of just how few participants there were at Dewsbury yesterday.

Secondly – the angle gives the impression that the rally was held at Dewsbury Town Hall. The Biffers have long tried to make speeches from the steps of Town Halls a symbolic representation of ‘taking over’ the town itself. In this case though they were prevented from using council property and a line of police ensured that no Biffer got to stand on the coveted Town Hall steps.

This picture shows not only the fact that Grassing Golding is forced to remain at ground level (an unpopular choice for any speaker) but you can even see the temporary fencing used to cordon off the steps and the Police line ensuring that the barrier is respected. Despite the Biffer rhetoric it’s clear that Dewsbury’s council wanted no part of Britain Frist’s racist shenanigans and were prepared to go to unusual lengths to distance themselves from these outsiders’ attempts to ‘take back ‘their’ town’.

Unsurprisingly, Britain first has blamed the Police for their lack of attendance.

The truth is, of course far more obvious than that. They’re a bunch of sad racist cockwombles led by cynical, profiteering wannabes who have nothing to offer this country except hatred and division. That’s why nobody turned up. Britain First don’t represent the people of this country as they claim. Most people actually see them as irrelevant to their everyday lives. The majority of those who do notice them have no time for their divisive rhetoric or their aggressive, attention-seeking publicity stunts.

The speeches were predictable and the assembled band of shivering, sycophantic cockwombles must have wondered why they’d bothered coming to hear the same sad statements from the same sad people. There are only so many times you can say the same thing without it getting old and boring, Paulie.

BF Dewsbury speeches Jim Dowson sermon

Perhaps the most entertaining part of the day for us was Jim Dowson’s ‘sermon’. Like a cross between Tony Hancock and Billy Graham this demented hate preacher treated the decidedly unreligious crowd to a quite bizarre selection of cherry-picked Bible verses. His interpretation of god’s hatred for unbelievers was about as far at odds with modern Christianity as it’s possible to get. Not that it mattered – nobody in the crowd had ever picked up a Bible anyway so they had no way of knowing just how far from the reality of the faith this ranting, rambling reprobate was leading them.

Jayda “Dutchy” Fransen was no more original. As usual she talked about Zakat, Jihad, Terrorism and Satan. Suicide bombers and disinterested Police came under fire as she claimed that only Britain First could save UK from the evil Islamist. Her evidence for this, we could hardly stop laughing at this point, was American racist, Donald Trump!

Her words fairly dripped with paranoia about smelly lefties, Muslims wanting to kill us and, of course sex crime. Equally as usual tried to pretend that it’s all the fault of ‘evil Muslims’. To hear her shriek, you’d think that no Christian, white man had ever committed rape or abused a child. More despicably, she’d have you think that no brown Muslim man hadn’t. And make no mistake – equating colour and religion are very much part of Britain First’s modus operandi. They may claim otherwise but it’s clear from their many media comments that their real issue is skin colour – Islam is just a convenient cover for them to pretend that they’re not racist.

BF Dewsbury Jan 30 2016 speeches Jayda Fransen

Blasphemously she ranted about how other Christians didn’t recognise her role as defender of the faith and the ‘temple’ of Britain. But she’s only worried about our souls, of course. The Messiah complex was particularly strong as she condemned every mainstream denomination of Christian in UK for not joining the Biffers. Everybody else is going to Hell, apparently!

Eventually she got to the point. The solution was simple. Ban Islam. The crowd then took up a brief, sorry chant of ‘No more mosques’. It remains to be seen whether or not that was in breach of the restrictions imposed upon them that banned them from carrying the ‘No more mosques’ banner and also banned similair hate speech.

EBF BF Niemoller Christian condemnation

After the speeches the soggy, bedraggled Biffers shuffled off to the Prince of Orange pub for a boozy evening congratulating themselves on their bigotry. The room was small, showing that they’d anticipated this poor turnout (nothing to do with the Police turning people away) and the plastic glasses give a very clear indication of just what the pub landlord expected from this rabble of rowdy revellers. We can’t say we blame him. Would you trust this lot to behave themselves?

EDL/NWI Doing what they do best

Here at EBF we abhor violence. So do most of our supporters. We always advocate peaceful protest as part of normal, representative democracy. But don’t be fooled. The fact that we understand common decencies like non-violence and freedom of conscience doesn’t mean that the opposition do. On the contrary – the far right’s violent approach to disagreement is one of the main reasons why we need to oppose them.

It can be hard to explain just how violent these people can be and how undemocratic they are in their outlook. So we thought we’d let them speak for themselves.

NWI Dover video gloat

This is a video shot from inside the ranks of the EDL contingent at yesterday’s demo in Dover. Despite accusations that peaceful fascists were attacked by vicious counter-protestors we can see that these drunken members of the imbibing brotherhood were far from peaceful (or sober). If this is what they think of as ‘Defence’ then we’d hate to see them attack.

It does seem to be true that a small contingent of anti-fascists also went looking for trouble and that’s not something that we at EBF can support. We understand it but we can’t condone it. The neo-nazis want to start a war. Violent reactions from Antifa, however well meaning, serve only to help them move in that direction.

But the counter-protestors in this video were most certainly not offering violence. They were protesting peacefully as is their right in a free society. Not that the English Defence League care about anything as trivial as other peoples’ rights. Theirs is a fascist ideology that cares only about power and the destruction of all opposition.

This is what happens when a group of pissed up neo-nazis come together. This is why we oppose them. They are not fit to call themselves British. They oppose all that is best about our democratic society. Far from ‘defending’ this realm they undermine it with violence and with brutish stupidity.

Please watch this video and the next time some far right apologist talks about how peaceful they are send them the link. Share this far and wide. Let people know just what is happening in our country. These people are far more dangerous for UK society than the 3 million Muslims who live, work and worship peacefully within these shores.

View from a barstool #17

Beer 2Here we go again, in spite of some reports EBF towers is still standing, despite a rampage by the Hulk and Tankgirl trying to find Ant’s secret stash of muffins. ACAS has been called in as Prole, Kit, #7 and Mama sit giggling in the corner over the number of biffers in Dewsbury. I’m sitting in my car keeping out of it as I have brought a crate of helium lager but think this might go a bit far. Also despite the best efforts of Britain First I am still married. This week I have hidden myself in the crisps store to write the blog with a gag on so my chuckles cannot be heard.

As I write 130 right wing so called patriots saw the light and descended on Dewsbury for what Goldibollocks and Dutchy tried to tell us would be their biggest yet! Although in Biffer terms they will probably tell us that 130 thousand hundred million have marched, flags and police appear to have outnumbered them once again. The police seem to have taken to the idea that no protesters could protest and they seem to have marched unopposed. I’m sure the EBF admins that have been there will give a better report so best leave it to them.

The Huff post also seem to have started an early campaign against the biffers. In their blog report today all denominations of Christians have come out against them and said the so-called Christian call to arms that Goldibollocks preaches is against all of their faiths. I would think that the only Christians that would agree with these vile individuals are in the Westboro Baptist church.

Earlier this week the biffer cowards went to Luton, to Bury Park which has a large Muslim population. They went with their crosses, stab vests and racist propaganda, without informing the police, with the sole intention of stirring up trouble and making a heavily edited video of it. I cannot see anywhere that eggs were thrown but I did see Dutchy arguing with a muslim lady about her attire. Dutchy screamed and the lady stood her ground despite the fact that she was cornered with her two children by the shittroopers. Dutchy seems to think that this was a victory but she would. The Christian parishes around Bury Park issued an apology and gave out roses and a statement saying that the biffers should stay away.

Holocaust Memorial Day caused some issues on the page, as we published ‘never again’. There was an eerie silence from Biffer towers until late on in the day. We had a denier on the page but he was nowhere near as repugnant as some of the biffer sheep who decided that Holocaust day would be better remembered as the day to open the camps again for muslims and leftard do gooders (i.e us). Once again the true side of bifferdom was revealed.

EBF BF comments holocaust memorial day NaziNow I’ve calmed down a bit and the Landlady has gone to the cash and carry, I can report on two of the many things that have made me chortle this week. Firstly the video report of Goldibollocks in the “new Britain First TV studio” (in fact a £15 app from shuttlecock but allow them their delusions of grandeur) telling us how Dewsbury was going to be the biggest (cock up) demo of all time. Once again I couldn’t watch it all (don’t tell Prole or Kit or my hobnob ration will be severely curtailed) but let my fellow EBFers rip it apart. I can’t watch their video’s or “TV” appearances as they usually turn up on the days a certain barmaid works and I would be divorced pdq.

Secondly, the triumphant announcement (again) of Goldibollocks standing for London Mayor. Cue a begging letter this time for firty faaaasand million (defeated again on the office sweepstake). They are more interested with the media attention and the fact they can send out racist literature than they are over getting out and campaigning. They also, and I’m no lawyer like Dutchy, appear to have libelled the Labour candidate already. Now I’m not one for swearing but if these odious little fuckers get more than a few thousand votes then I will give up my Anti life, sell the pub and bugger off to an Island where I can’t be reached because we will have lost the battle.

It’s still so laughable though as Goldibollocks seems to think he can tie up career politicians in knots in a debate and work on a budget of Millions whereas the biffers can’t even create their own accounts. Let me repeat and I will do until I’m red in the face (or sober) this is a gimmick, a stunt to make money for the puppets and their master. They are not interested in the votes, they are there to line their pockets, create division and then cry foul on media bias and damn Muslim appeasers.

So I’ve calmed down, the gag is off, the quick check on the EBF towers shows CBS and EBFBlogger have calmed things down, Hulk is having a monster sulk (something about trolls I think), Tankgirl is sitting in the corner quietly and the others will finally get some work done. Have a good week I have a particularly lovely barrel of Champion Gold to polish off.

The award for the least popular fash group goes to…

Today saw fash from all over UK travelling to support their favourite thugs in Dewsbury and Dover. Folding Golding has spent the last month or so crowing about how popular his bunch of vagabond Biffers has become. He claimed that the newly created dance of division – ‘The Dewsbury shuffle’ would take the UK by storm, attracting hundreds if not ‘faasands’ (sic) of neo-nazis to hassle the good people of West Yorkshire.

Unluckily for him, Britain First wasn’t the only nasty bunch of neo-nazis out annoying people today. The National Front had organised their own antisocial soiree in Dover. Such is the skilful co-ordination of British fascism – they can’t even refrain from competing with each other. Or maybe that’s the point. Maybe today’s events were part of some perverse popularity contest to see which group holds the most sway over our nation’s far-right fringe.

So let’s have a look at what happened. Where did the rest of Britain’s bored bovver-boys choose to spend their time. They could join Britain First in Dewsbury which is actually relatively central (especially given how many of the far-right seem to congregate around Manchester, Newcastle and south Yorkshire) or they could travel to the South coast (a much longer journey for most) to meet up with the National Front. Which journey would you choose?

EBF BF Dewsbury Dover competition lie police Jayda
It seems that several of these disaffected drunken drones chose to go out of their way to join the NF in Dover. Many, such as these members of the imbibing brotherhood had to drive right past Dewsbury on their way South. That’s an extra few hundred miles in a minibus just so they could snub Grassing Golding and his combined force of a few dozen cockwombles.

EBF BF Diddyman NWI Dover vs Dewsbury Sat 30th Jan 2016

The actual numbers (according to our spotters’ best estimates) were…

Dover 60

Dewsbury 119

The results are in. And it’s a landslide! The award for the least popular fash group goes to…

The National Front!

Grassing Golding hasn’t got too much gloating room though. Any genuinely popular ‘registered political party’ with 1,300,000 Facebook likes holding a rally in the middle of Britain should get way more than that. The Biffers have been advertising this for months now, urging people to join them and doing everything in their power to encourage a high turnout. Even with ALL their officers and officials in attendance they only just scraped into triple figures. Without all the plastic paramilitary ‘ranking officers’, division leaders, unlicensed bouncers, paramilitary style standard bearers and attention-seeking speakers they would have mustered far fewer.

That’s the real lesson from today’s fascist fiasco. Even combined the two groups (and all the assorted fascist groups who chose between them) couldn’t make it to 200 attendees. With massive advertising from both sides, an entire country to draw people from and enough geographical variation to make at least one of these events accessible for just about everyone they still got an embarrassingly low turnout.

Face it fascists – you’re finished here in UK. Less than 200 people between you. And as for Grassing Golding’s lot. That’s just ridiculous.

Hilarious!

Britain First’s political uniform

According to the 1936 Public order act it is illegal for any political party to develop or wear political uniform. It’s no coincidence that this Act was given Royal assent when it was. In the run up to the second world war a group of fascists led by Baronet Oswald Ernold Moseley donned remarkably Nazi style uniform and terrorized British people whom they deemed to be foreigners or otherwise ‘undesirable’.

They got their come-uppance in the end as thousands of decent Brits forced them to abandon their March in a confrontation at Cable Street in Stepney, East London. None the less their very existence showed the damage to social harmony that organised fascism could do and the Public order act was passed as part of a raft of measures designed to prevent their like ever returning to UK’s streets.

It’s no surprise then that the most recent group to try to find a way past the law is another bunch of fascists, Britain First. Originally they wore more obviously miilitarized garb but following Grassing Golding’s conviction for wearing political uniform they started wearing uniforms based upon more casual clothing instead. But a uniform is still a uniform and theirs is distinctive and used to denote roles just like any other.

Have you ever wondered why Biffers wear different coloured tea-cosies? Well now you know! Look at what Robin Lomax (head of the Biffers Walt division) has to say about them.

Churches condemn unChristian Biffers

Just as Britain First was preparing to carry its weaponised crosses through Dewsbury in the name of Jesus this article condemning their racist crusade was published. It carries criticisms of Britain First from almost every major Christian organisation in the country. Official statements from just about everyone who knows anything about Christianity demonstrate just how united Christians are in their opposition to the divisive, anti-ecumenical message of Folding Golding and Dutchy Fransen.

Just as Jim Dowson prepared to reprise his rabble-rousing ‘sermon’ distorting Christ’s message of love and peace into a clarion call for hatred and violence representatives of various denominations decried his message of destruction.

BF church do not speak for Christians Golding

Just as Folding Golding get ready to give Muslims in West Yorkshire a right good telling off for having the audacity to exist, religious representatives throughout UK came together in a show of unity that the far right can only dream of.

Not so very long ago Jim Dowson was talking about tapping into the Christian churches as a way of mobilising their combined congregations behind Britain First’s racist cause. He almost got what he wanted. They combined, alright – but not in the way Dowson had hoped.

Britain First has awoken a sleeping giant. The Christian community has become aware of the threat of fascism that Britain First represents in a massive way and they’re not happy.

Some time ago we developed a briefing pack for Christians and church leaders together with an invitation to join us in spreading the truth about the way that Britain First has distorted the message of Christ for its own, exceedingly unChristian ends. Those church leaders who responded to our invitation were extremely positive and have been quietly going about their congregations and local synods spreading awareness on our behalf. We’d like to think that we at EBF have played some small part in today’s development through those church activists’ excellent work and the use of our resource pack.

The pack is still available. You can download it here. We’d be grateful to anyone concerned about the way that Britain First has hi-jacked Christianity for racist purposes for sharing this post or the one linked here, especially to Christians and Church leaders.

Together we’ll beat them.

No pasaran!

Doing the Dewsbury shuffle

Later today the thugs from Britain First will shuffle their way through Dewsbury, embarrassing themselves and annoying the locals in equal measure. As usual they’ll be armed with oversized wooden crosses and abusive placards to supplement the verbal abuse they will  undoubtedly inflict upon the local population. We use the word ‘armed’ advisedly.
