View from a barstool by Landlord

Beer 2Wow, what a lot to think about in the last month and a half. Defections, court cases, the Northern Irish branch of bigotry, court cases, sex assault allegations, court cases all wrapped up in a huge dose of begging communication from Biffer towers. Also a huge amount of blind eye turning, fake tears oh and just a sprinkling of running away.

Where to begin? Well I suppose we’ll deal with the Belfast court case, a visit to town hall and a huge amount of laughing over here as Councillor Bigot tries to wiggle free of an investigation by city hall. So Screechy travelled over to Belfast to answer charges of “using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour” at the huge peace rally of 30 potatoes. Goldibollocks turned up with a huge entourage, well 5 tits, some of whom have questionable pasts, who haven’t heard of slimming world to back up the newly self appointed potato Queen. He was promptly arrested along with Banksy and Rimmer (no this isn’t an episode of Red Dwarf) on hate charges. Although the trial will be at a later date not all was lost for our intrepid racists as Councillor Bigot showed the Queen around and let her try on the robes. Queen potato Screechy liked the look of the Mayoral throne so much that she decided it was hers and perched her Englishish (Dutch) arse on there leading to outrage. Councillor Bigot is to be investigated and she wailed to her Facebook cronies in indecipherable babble that she hadn’t done anything wrong (well that’s what my Bigot auto-translate said so things are going well there then.

The sex assault allegations against Goldibollocks are still under investigation so I won’t comment much on them. I just wonder, given Screechy’s testimony recently whether the latest begging bowl email is for leaflets attacking ‘The Rochdale One’!!!!

Fast forward to this last week and the trial of another deranged potato Darren Osbourne and the intimation that Screechy, Goldibollocks and Tommeh had either been in contact with him or their writings and videos had radicalised him into running over a Muslim at Finsbury Park Mosque. Even if it is only a little bit true will we now see widespread condemnation of right wing hate preachers. Tommeh, Hopkins, Screechy and Goldibollocks are just as guilty in my mind as the disgusting Hamza and Choudhary. Every time I see them spout on about Muslims being radicalised in their mosques I will make it a mission (at least until I am banned or blocked) to mention Mair and Osbourne.

The resignation of Steve Lewis is another amazing event in the last 60 days. Steve is the banner losing rather rotund chap who has been a member of the inner circle for as long as I can remember. A member of Security, writer of the accounts and privy to a lot of happenings. His rather public resignation (now taken down for whatever reasons) stated that he couldn’t live with the scam artists and pisstaking that the high command are now taking. Andrew Edge and others who have basically taken over whilst genuine potatoes like Steve are pushed out. Some have said that Steve was the acceptable face of the Biffers but a cunt is a cunt and he is definitely one. However it is fun to watch as former trusted members of the Fuehrer bunker resign so publicly.

With Steve gone, and therefore light on security a couple of chaps spotted brave Sir Goldibollocks in Curry’s (what a name of a shop to be in) and as he came out confronted him. Goldibollocks bravely fled back into the shop shitting himself and hid. I guess when confronting Muslims the biffer rules are

1) make sure there are BFD about and
2) make sure said Muslims are over the age of 70.

BF EBF Jayda Fransen Fuhrer in waitingThe defection of Stevie came as a forerunner to the trial in Folkestone around Biffer videos of the Ramsgate 555 kebab shop rapists. Now most of us were probably sad enough to keep refreshing the Kent Live update pages and so if you did you probably read wide eyed about what happened and the blatant lies from our cowardly biffers. Whether or not they caused a stillborn baby, the way it looked to me that the ferocity of the harassment is enough to send them down. The bit that had me laughing more than anything was when Goldibollocks said he knew nothing of what was going to happen. Well Goldibollocks that, I’m afraid is another load of smelly steaming bullshit. As leader of your potato movement if you didn’t know maybe you are leader in name only and should step aside and let Queen Screechy take over as moley has intimated on numerous occasions that she wants to do.BF Belfast bigot Bunting

60 days in which the biffers have collected £40k and are now asking for life members at a knock down price (you do get a signed pic of Screechy and Goldibollocks) to sign and donate a potato pledge, a monthly direct debit to cover their drinks, parties, drugs and holidays. To grease the palm of Councillor Bigot, to keep the thug Edge onside.

So there you have it 60 days 2 court cases, a reprimand, a defection, a con or two and a surrender. I haven’t even mentioned Trump and his put down or my favourite photo of the 60 days….Goldibollocks sitting waiting to go into court in Belfast , just round the corner from a huge stainglassed window with the words No Pasaran.

Do you really think they’re not Nazis?

BF Reich eagle naziLet’s just be clear…

Britain First is a Nazi organisation!

We’ve said it before. We’re saying it now. No doubt we’ll say it again. We’ll say it loud and clear and we’ll keep on saying it until people stop trying to pretend that it’s not true.

Britain First is a Nazi organisation!

Here at Exposing Britain First we all spend hours and hours of our time working to make this point. Many of us have full time jobs and still we come home, turn on our computers, open our books and research the next blog post or Facebook meme. And we don’t do all that for no reason. We do it because opposing Nazism is important. It was important during World War 2 and it’s just as important now.

Actually we’d love it if Britain First wasn’t a Nazi organisation – but it is.

EBF BF KTI militia texasIf the Biffers really just opposed violent extremism we’d work just as hard supporting their cause. But they’d have to be even handed. They’d have to oppose violent Christian extremists like the Knights Templar International. They’d have to oppose violent white supremacists like the English Defence League. They’d have to oppose violent hate preachers like Britain First… oh… wait.

Britain First will never oppose violent extremists and hate preachers because they are violent extremists and hate preachers. That’s because…

Britain First is a Nazi organisation!

Of course, many people like to take issue with us when we tell them that…

Britain First is a Nazi organisation!

They say we’re biased because we’re all Muslims or terrorists or paedophiles (which, of course we’re not). Or they claim we’re only against Britain First because we’re lefties (which many of us are to tell the truth). But the reality is much more simple than that. It doesn’t matter who Britain First targets as scapegoats to further their cause. We oppose them because…

Britain First is a Nazi organisation!

BF EBFington Post Britian First Exposed PDF front page imageLike all Nazi organisations they need a minority to target, to blame for all the evils of society. That’s how Nazism works. They start with a soft target – a demographic large enough to be conspicuous but small enough to be easy meat. Then, once they’ve whipped up enough hatred and violence against them they expand their target to include other groups. It doesn’t matter who they start with so long as that group is vulnerable.
In the past Nazi organisations in UK have targeted Jews, Blacks, LGBT, Asians, Vietnamese boat people, Poles, Czechs, Irish, Romany… the list goes on and on. The current wave of hatred against Muslims is just more of the same and Britain First has jumped on the bandwagon because…

Britain First is a Nazi organisation!

But we know that some people will still doubt our word when we say that…

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.

Sky News, Jayda Fransen and a spate of hate crime in Rotherham

A few days ago we launched The EBFington Post. It’s part of a wider plan to step up our campaign against Britain First and the far-right in general. Britain First is on its way out but tin-pot neo-nazis will remain. We’ll have to wait and see which ludicrous banner they flock to next. For now the job of EBF is to deliver Britain First’s final death blow. It’s a war of ideas and Britain First is losing ground fast but it’s not quite dead yet.

The EBFington Post’s newly appointed editorial team aims to make The Post a resource for Antifascists to stay informed for many years to come – long after the Biffers have been forgotten. Our library of free information guides begins with this inaugural special edition, EBFington post Britain First exposed.

Please download it, use it for reference and pass it around to all your contacts. And remember to bookmark this blog to make sure you don’t miss future editions as they’re published too.

EBFington post Britain First exposed

In the light of the recent spate of hate crime in Rotherham and Jayda Fransen’s ignorant rant about Muslims and paedophilia (aired today by SKY News) we couldn’t have been more timely. Here’s an extract from EBFington post Britain First exposed to whet your appetites…

BF Jayda Dudley speeches 3Paedophilia

Another favourite of Fascist propaganda is the claim that all Muslims are paedophiles. The argument is that since Mohammed married a child, Aisha and since several Muslim paedophile rings have come to light then the inescapable and obvious reality must be that all Muslim men are child sex abusers. Or are they….?

Unfortunately for ‘the fash’, the argument falls flat in some crucial ways…

Mohammed’s child bride

Aisha was Mohammed’s second (and favourite) wife. Estimates of her age at the time of her marriage vary. The best we can say with confidence is that she was somewhere between the ages of 9 and 21 on the day of her betrothal. That’s a pretty big margin of error. Some far-right Islamophobes claim that she was actually only 6 years old when she married but that seems extremely unlikely. Marriage at such a young age would have been against the rules of the Ummah (Islamic community).
We can say with confidence that there is absolutely no evidence that the marriage was consumated during Aisha’s childhood. That’s very important. It means that there’s nothing to suggest that Aisha had sex before she came of age, despite her marriage to Mohammed, which may not have been until her early twenties anyway.

But let’s consider the lowest plausible age. Let’s assume that she was only 9 years old.

It’s important to remember that we are talking about the customs and practices of a nomadic tribal community in the early part of the 7th century. The betrothal of children was common throughout both the East and the West at the time. European history records many Western monarchs who not only married long before puberty but who also produced children as soon as they were biologically able to. There’s nothing unusual about child brides in the context of the time. There is something unusual about Aisha and Mohammed though. They appear not to have had sex until long after Aisha hit puberty.

Aisha is said to have joined Muhammad on the raid that culminated in the Battle of Badr, in 624 CE. Since only those aged 15 or over could have been present at the raid, Aisha must have been at least 15 by then which means she must have been 13 at the very least on her wedding day in 622.

According to Tabari, Aisha was first offered in marriage to a different man in 615. The minimum age for Muslim betrothal at the time was 9 years old which would have made her at least 16 years of age by 622.

Aisha was one of Abu Bakr’s four children, all of whom were born prior to 610 and the beginning of the Islamic era. This would put her at no younger than 12 years at the time of her betrothal (an absolute minimum). Significantly older than many contemporary Christian brides.

None of this suggests that sex with children is acceptable in modern UK. It simply demonstrates the double standard of Britain First and the rest of the far-right Islamophobic groups who delight in chanting “Mohammed was a paedo” on the streets of Britain. The evidence against Muslims in this regard is far less damaging then is the evidence against Christians. And in both cases the ‘evidence’ has been taken so far out of its historical context that it is both meaningless and stupid.

Muslim grooming gangs

There have been some very high profile cases involving Muslim men, especially of Pakistani origins who committed a range of crimes against children. The scandal against young people in Rotherham is a particularly well-known and prominent example, although it’s not the only one.

BF demo muslim grooming paedo sex rotherham

However this doesn’t mean that all Muslim men, or even all Pakistani Muslim men are paedophiles any more than all Catholic priests can be accused of paedophilia on the strength of the Roman church’s unfortunate relationship with (and protection of) paedophile clerics. Recent child sex scandals within the Anglican and Methodist churches don’t reflect upon all protestants either.

There are paedophiles in every community.

1400 years ago every community accepted child marriage, sex and childbirth at a very young age. If these things are enough to convict all Muslims then they also must convict all Christians by the very same logic.
This stuff doesn’t convict all Christians, of course. And it doesn’t convict all Muslims either. It does reveal an awful lot about the bigotry and selective attention of modern neo-nazis who will grab on to even the flimsiest fantasy to demonise their Muslim neighbours.
