Another week, another day in the cellar which is apt really as I look back over the week of the cold murky world of British Facism.
On Saturday the mass ranks of right-wingers met across Europe for Pegida marches. Two pretty close to us were in Dublin and of course Our Tommy’s latest venture in Birmingham. Tommy Robinson, convicted felon, ex-leader of the EDL and now the very loud, shouty voice of the British arm of Pegida.
Estimates of faaaaasands of patriots to attend ended up at around 150 for a shuffle round a Solihull industrial park when no one else was there. A few antifash turned up but they were either laughing so much or very wet as the heavens showed their anger and it poured with rain (in fact looking at the twitter feed most Antifa’s returned to various pubs and watched the fun unfold on social media). In fact by all reports there were more collection buckets being passed round than there were marchers. So a silent march, with no protests, and no one taking any real notice.
Then over the next couple of days it appeared that Tommy had dropped a clanger by allowing the Pakistan flag to fly next to the English flag. This pissed off Tommy’s old mates at the EDL and screen shots of their anger flowed round anti pages around the internet.
In Dublin it was even worse. The leader of Pegida Ireland was cornered in a bar and was last seen running to his car chased by anti’s. The polish fash that turned up in solidarity were most pissed off and they also vented their anger at Pegida.
It seems very much as if facism in this country as well as Ireland isn’t really very well followed.
The NWI, a particularly nasty bunch of fash have issued details of their latest march and have refused police liaison which does not bode well for the streets of Manchester. They seem to think they can go to one of the more multi-cultural cities in the country and preach their vile message. I can only see this going one way, and it won’t be a victory to the normal Manc.
Our besties over at Britiain First decided a flash demo outside a mosque in Canterbury, well I wouldn’t call it a demo as 3 patriots, screechy and Goldibollocks held a banner up. Goldi decided to call everyone traitor while reading from our fash bingo card. They then found out that this mosque was being extended and went into total froth although the plans show it was more cosmetic. Goldibollocks also seems to have endeared himself to the local constabulary and to CofE clerics too as if he is totally untouchable. The fact he did this on a Sunday when mosques opened their doors to the public meant they could have walked in spoken to elders and the Imam and would probably have learnt a lot about Islam instead of the continual lies that he and screechy constantly put out on Facebook. But I forget, they only go in when one old man is there and they can bully him.
So what does this tell us about the state of the right? Well quite a lot really. They are fractured, badly led, badly supported and have a severe dislike of each other even if they have a common enemy. They are still laughable even though they have massive reach on social media. It seems to me that the police and the powers that be want to keep them fighting each other because there is a warning behind all this. If they unite, however much they are in the minority there will be problems on our streets.
So thats it, I’ll sign off now and go from the murky, cold cellar into the warm and welcoming bar. It really does feel like going from writing about the dregs back into the world of the silent majority.
