A view from a barstool #34 by Landlord

Beer 2Well there’s a thing, another week of lovely warm sunshine keeping winter at bay and I’m getting it in the neck from the Landlady for putting away the summer play things in the pub garden, I blame the weathermen who told me it was going to be a short Indian summer.

I have a question to ask. Are you ready for the Biffers silly season? Yep it’s that time again. As Autumn hits our shores the biffers propaganda ministry will go into overdrive. Muslims taking control of government and councils to harm all British patriots’ way of life. Hallowe’en, Remembrance Day, Christmas, the usual shit fuelled by the bastions of truth The Sun, Mail and Express.

So lets have a look at these Great British traditions one by one. These traditions that every year are supposedly shut down by Islamic leaders, every year we see hysterical headlines and social media statuses that are basically either downright lies or twist the story to such a degree that Muslims are made to be the evil ones fuelling an already slow burning hatred that has got worse since the referendum.

Hallowe’en, the day when parents all over the country, who normally wouldn’t let their kids go round knocking on doors or talking to strangers, allow their kids to do just that. This last year was supposedly banned in a lot of areas. It wasn’t in most places and where it was it was the police and councils fearing anti social behaviour. Again we saw headlines in the gruesome threesome and fuelled the hate.

Remembrance day – the day British Patriots adore as once more they can pretend to be more patriotic than the rest of us. Age old stories will be regurgitated, poppies being burnt, Muslims disrespecting the dead, Muslims stopping remembrance marches and Biffers adding security to armed forces cadets selling poppies.

BF NF EBF Paul Golding underpantsThe poppies were burnt, yes but a long time ago, the people doing it were dealt with there and then and they were rightly convicted and fined. It reminds me of the pictures I saw of a certain BNP racist cockwomble wandering around the cenotaph with a pair of Y-fronts om his head. If you havent seen this before this arsewipe has become leader of a “registered political” party.

Our memes last year documented the hundreds of thousands of Muslims who died protecting our freedom. Their relatives must be wondering why right now.

Finally, on Remembrance Day , or at least on the run up to the day Goldibollocks tells his shit troopers to go and “protect” the army of cadets who collect money for veterans from the hordes of lefties and Muslims that are out to desecrate the memories of the fallen. Except they don’t protect…..they hide away until any adults have gone off then get a selfie with the cadets, place it on Facebook and the dickwads that follow the page eat it up. The Biffers respect our fallen so much they sell tat, dressed up as British Legion merchandise and pocket the money for their own grubby means.

A friend of the page, John McKnight has been asking Goldibollocks where the money raised has gone. Ask yourself the question then, who disrespects the fallen more, Muslims, lefties, Foldibollocks or the biffers.

muslims ban christmas propaganda fail.jpgFinally Christmas, I don’t think there is a day goes by in November or December that a headline in the gruesome threesome, a meme or a link to an ultra right wing think tank that doesn’t say CHRISTMAS GETS CANCELLED. Now I don’t like Christmas apart from my coffers bulging but each to their own. The Muslims I know celebrate the day, maybe not as christians do but still give presents, invite friends for a cocktail or three (grrr not spending in my gaff) and generally enjoy the time as much as a certain grumpy landlord. Also, in the afternoon, Naz opens his store for forgotten things and fags. The reasons lights, decorations or trees don’t go up is not Muslims, grumpy landlords or athiests it’s because councils can’t afford it, health and safety or a myriad of other reasons.

MUSLIMS DO NOT WANT TO CANCEL CHRISTMAS!

But it doesn’t matter to Biffers. Any article in the propaganda sheets will be siezed upon and twisted for their own gain to keep the anti Muslim sentiment going.

I would offer a packet of toffee chocolate hobnobs if you manage to see a positive article about any of these but I checked EBF coffers and we seem only to have half a packet of midget gems, two packets of quavers, a bottle of Lambrini and a packet of hummus.

Now back to the job, putting back up the climbing frame, swings and benches…..wheres my hammer.

Former Britain First member speaks out

The following post was Emailed by a former Biffer. We publish it here without edit or comment beyond this very brief introduction. (EBFBlogger)

BF NF BNP Nazi comparisonsThe first time I heard of Britain First was in 2014, when I saw the video of them confronting and chasing Anjem Choudary outside his home. I thought it was justified that a pro-violence hate preacher was being treated as badly as he treats others. I signed up to be a member after watching that video and one other of a counter protest. I thought it was a good cause because at the time, I felt little or no action was being carried out against extremeism in Britain.

Shortly after signing up, I got a magazine through the post from Britain First and the most interesting article in it was about the “New World Order” and how the “Establishment” needs to be removed in Britain. I thought I struck gold. A party against extremeism and the Establishment.

A few weeks later came the first of many emails asking for money. At first, I thought it was fine because they are only a small party. I was basically skint, so I never donated anything.

After reading Facebook posts by BF, I was confused. They went from being Anti-Establishment to praising the Queen (who is arguably the biggest figure of the British Establishment) so that was odd. I also heard some members (including Paul) were ex-BNP. At this point, I should have been smart enough to see through the illusion but I wasn’t. I thought hardly anything of the BNP link, I thought maybe they turned away from racism. Maybe they wanted a fresh start.

BF Full metal jacket fight war islam muslimAround the same time ISIS began dominating news headlines, came BF’s posts saying how a “Moderate Muslim” doesn’t exist and they “all read from the same evil book”
Sad to say, I thought they had a point. I started thinking of all Muslims as evil and terrorist sympathisers. I was never racist but I was Islamophobic. I am extremely disappointed in myself for this because growing up I was never bothered by religion or political beliefs.
I feel like I was radicalised.

I went to my only protest which was in Rotherham. When I got there, it felt more like a market, with cheap tacky merchandise being sold out of a car boot. The illusion started to slowly fade from this moment.

After that, my next event, if I remember correctly, was their conference. I walked into the hall where it was being held and headed into the main room. Paul and Jayda were speaking to each other.

“When’s it going to happen then?” Paul asked

“I don’t think they’ve realised just yet” Jayda replied.

EBF BF police conference 2014 raidI can only assume they were talking about booking the hall and not informing staff who they were or what the event was. A few minutes later, a worker approached Paul and asked who exactly they were, to which Paul handed her a leaflet, with a smug smile on his face. Like a plan had all come together. The worker walked away and Jayda followed her into a small room, and came back a few moments later. Then all hell broke loose. The manager came to the main room and shouted “How dare you speak to my staff like that, get out now!” God knows what she said. Jayda seemed to love being confronted and responded aggressively.

The staff cut the power, so no laptops were working etc. The police were called and the conference was cut short. What a waste of a day that was. On the way home, I was thinking to myself, why am I here. This isn’t me.

Later in the week, in maybe one of the biggest coincidences of all time, I just finished reading a post by a fellow member saying how “all Muslims hate dogs” and “dogs are seen as filthy in Islam”. I took my dog for a long walk and sat down relaxing for a while, when a Muslim lady wearing a hijab and her husband walked past. She saw my dog and the lady smiled at me and asked if she could stroke him and take a picture of him. I said sure. I thought I was being wound up at the first!

It was in this moment I realised I was completely wrong. Most Muslims are peaceful and friendly people. It was such a brilliant scenario.

BF NF EBF Paul Golding underpants

Britain First took a break in December and I discovered alot more about them. Such as the Daily Politics interview where it shows Paul disrespecting the war dead on Remember Sunday. My mind was more or less made up then, but I did one last event, which was campaigning. It was rubbish and nothing of importance happened.

I went home and I exposed Britain First to all the other activists and officially quit.

Now, I am sharing my story with you, as someone who has seen how this evil party operates from the inside. As someone who was peaceful growing up, only to be transformed into a Islamophobe because of Britain First.

As for my views now, my core beliefs are being Anti-Establishment and promoting peace between all races, colours, religions etc.

EBF multicultural

I would like to end this post by saying sorry and to urge any Britain First members reading this to leave the party, turn your lives around and promote peace and give your time to a worthy cause.

No pasaran!

BF Reich eagle naziIt’s easy to pretend that stuff doesn’t matter, that it doesn’t concern us or that it just couldn’t possibly be as bad as all that because people wouldn’t allow it. We can sympathise with that view. People really won’t allow it. We won’t allow it!

It really is inconceivable that Nazism could rise again in modern UK. But why is it inconceivable? It’s not because there aren’t any Nazis left. We know there are plenty of those, not only here in UK but across the developed world. That’s the price we pay for our society’s tolerance – there’s always someone ready to hi-jack what we’ve built.

The real reason why Nazism cannot thrive in decent societies is ordinary people. People like you who don’t just assume that someone else will stop them. We all have our part to play in beating the modern threat of neo-nazism whether it comes from Britain First, the English Defence League, the New British Union, Unity, Pegida or anyone else.

If you pretend it doesn’t matter, you make yourself complicit. If you wait for someone else to spread the word and expose these thugs you miss an opportunity to halt the propaganda war that won’t simply stop with muslims or ‘lefties’.

All any of us have to do is tell our friends what we know whenever the subject comes up. When they share that Facebook meme from the EDL challenge it. When they praise the Biffers for facing up to extremists tell them about their true cowardice, hiding behind police and harrassing women and old men. When your relative likes that clickbait picture of kittens or traditional British fish and chips make sure you let them know who they’ve just ‘liked and shared’.

There is no official body of anti Nazis ready to swoop on fledgling fash like Britain First There are only ordinary people – individuals like you, doing their little bit when the topic comes up. That’s all we ask.

Will you do your part in this war of ideas?

They shall not pass!

No pasaran!

Landlord in cellarAnother weekend, another waste of Police overtime, as more fash decide they should take to the streets. This time polluting our ears in Newcastle and Preston. Councils should send the policing bill to these so called patriots for their time as this would certainly stop this stupidity.

A few people on the Exposing Britain First page support their right to protest and so do I, after all it is what makes this country great. Banning these prats would only get them to do flash demo’s and this country’s silent majority have had enough. And we would see the violence back on our streets as we did at Dover.

The police seem to have changed tack slightly and let the cockwombles march but on their terms not the fash leaving them basically getting pissed, walking down an empty street and having speeches(if spouting the vile crap they come out with constitutes speech) well away from the public. They keep the Anti fash well away too knowing that this will just keep the peace.

NPAS Warton EDL Preston image.pngIn Preston the cream of the EDL came to town to protest about (yawn) muslim no go zones, refugees, the child grooming and anything else they could blame on a religious group they hate. As I said in an earlier blog, and watching a video of the area, how they could say Deepdale is a white no go area I don’t know. 5000 Sheffield Wednesday fans walked down the very streets supposedly patrolled by Sharia Police and gangs of muslims and I’ve checked the press – there were no beheadings, fights, Muslamic ray guns, conversions or anything of the sort. I also checked in with the two pubs around and there is no boarding up, no machine gun posts and no tinfoil hats being worn. In actual fact the pubs are flourishing and love being a centre of the community.

I digress, the EDL turned up in ‘huge numbers’. If you believe them around 200. If you believe the anti’s 50. If you believe the police 80-90. I’ll stick with the police. In fact the lack of turn out seems to have started the infighting already and this can only be good for us. The Anti’s numbers, were according to the EDL around 20, Anti’s themselves 400 or the police between 250 and 300 again I’ll take the police figures. The EDL, trying to big it up, tried to tell all that would listen that the Anti’s spent most of the time fighting amongst themselves. As far as I could see they were more busy eating the tea and cakes that the local mosques made and were handing out.

national action racism full face mask

In Newcastle the even more vile National Action were out in pig masks and Niqabs (or full face masks). This was probably to disguise the fact there was only 15 of them. The rest probably slipped on banana skins or got stuck in lost luggage again. They held their banner calling for whatever (I think it was Refugees not welcome) and for an hour they were laughed at deleriously by the wonderful Geordies. An hour after they pissed off, in the same place around 100 people unfurled a banner saying Refugees Welcome.

You see then two demo’s, the size of which can be debated, that wouldn’t even fill my pub when I have the Rugby (or some footy) on. I had the 6 nations on. English flags and shirts, Welsh flags and shirts, Scottish and Irish flags and you know what – they were all patriotic, all supported their countries, but never once did I hear a racial slur. In fact good rugby was applauded by them all. I guess then that the fucknuggets who have tried to steal our identity along with hoisting our flags to show their hatred of others are losing.

Flag waving needn’t be racist. You just need to kick the idiots out.

Cheers

Have we forgotten yet?

This weekend saw the passing of another historical icon in the fight against fascism. Samuel Willenberg, the last living survivor of the Treblinka death camp passed away in Israel at the age of 93. He never forgot the horrors he witnessed at the camp in which almost every inmate died at the hands of their Nazi captors. Their only ‘crime’ was to belong to the wrong religion (or as the Nazis saw it then and now – the wrong race).

Samuel Willenberg last Treblinka survivor

Willenberg dedicated his long life to keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive. He regularly returned to Treblinka to help each new generation understand just what human beings are capable of given the right circumstances. His was a life dedicated to the principle ‘Never again’.

As I look around modern UK and the still embryonic but very definite revival of fascist ideologies; As I witness the neo-nazism of hate groups like Britain First and the EDL; As I watch these deplorable organisations distort the memory of those brave men and women who fought the Nazis in WW2 I have to ask myself…

Have we forgotten yet?

It seems that many of us have.

Many of us know nothing of the horrors that Nazism inflicted on the world so few decades ago. Still worse, some modern neo-nazis actually deny that these things happened at all, so desperate are they to sanitise the horrific ideology they support.

SwastikaMany modern supporters of divisive hate groups are so misinformed about the reality of the Holocaust and all its perpetrators stood for they actually believe that they are part of some vague opposition to Nazism when in fact they are its keenest supporters.

Have we forgotten yet?

It seems that many of us have.

I ask any members of Britain First, the English Defence League, Pegida, The New British Union or any of the seemingly endless list of far right organisations cropping up across the Western world to stop and consider for a moment. Do you really, truly understand what you’re getting into? Do you really want to be part of a movement that wants to murder anyone who doesn’t agree with its own policies and ideologies? Do you really believe that anything good can come out of the wholesale persecution and slander of an entire religion?

Have you forgotten yet?

Well… have you?

View from a Cellar 4

Landlord in cellarMore midweek shenanigans from the wonderful world of the right wing. I’ve been looking through the pages on facebook and in the papers and not a great deal is going on over in bigotland, the brand new theme park for the foaming right.

“Roll up roll up bigoted ones and racists all, for today we have all of you in one place.”

The EDL to the right, Pegida to the right, biffers on the evangelical right and thugs like the infidels, National Action and the NF to the far right. A foam fest of grand proportions for one day only.

There’s Goldibollocks and screechy preaching to their 120 followers wanting to take “are country back” This area comes complete with bible reading area (Brian Blessed type voice as we know the struggle with reading) Lefty Jounalist Pinata’s, a shop with stab vests and newspapers and a handy Police station for anyone who’s on Bail.

Oooh look There’s Pegida with stickers all over their mouths…..oh and a Pakistan flag…. all 127 of them with begging buckets. Tommy is there with MI5,MI6 and the rest of the intelligence community standing with him in case he wants to grass his former mates up. It appears Tommy has been on a ride as he seems to have taken a bashing coming out of a club. His police mates are looking at over a million suspects. This area comes with a dream factory as he’s delusional over 10000 people out on his next march and the management of Bigot World will have to get another couple of acres.

EDL Imbibing brotherhood brethren Bibo ergo sum in vino veritasPaul Locke and the EDL seem to have found Stella world, complete with directions on how to give the best Nazi salute. At least he seems to have found a couple of hundred like minded souls to keep him company. This part of the park includes handy advice on how to not get your Facebook pages hacked and how to scream about banning the Burka while still wearing face coverings.

Aha! Finally we have the real thugs and bigots. They are all bunched up in one. The infidels who are currently on an unsupervised march with no police protection as they haven’t told anyone….apart from Antifa, other groups and the police on social media. Where they are comes with handy Section 35 orders and instructions on how to get yourself nicked in one easy take. National Action are visiting a great area, a shop with banana’s and a left luggage office to take cover in the event of rain (or antifa). Their white knuckle ride is called “Scouse” and has them cowering in the corner. And it looks like the National Front have turned up..all 15 of them to show us Enoch was right.

It all looks so sweet until closing time when they seem to get on each others nerves, forget their percieved enemy and turn Bigot world into one big riot. Security (with real trained operatives with real licenses) turn up but along with the rest of the general public just can’t help laughing at these fucknuggets and their followers.

Oh well back to work now…look out for a view from a barstool this weekend with the news of the arrest of Screechy and Goldibollocks. I’m going to have to hide away well away from the Landlady.

Cheers

“They don’t integrate!”

BF Golding Dewsbury Town Hall steps out of boundsIt’s a favourite retort of the fash and their fellow travellers, and, to be fair, I’d have to admit that there is an element of truth in it.

 

They don’t fit in. More than that, they actively seek to not fit in. They take a great pride in not fitting in, they derive strength from it. Not fitting in confirms their certainty, it burnishes their zeal; it gives them the fanatic’s conviction to denounce all of us non believers as heretics in league with the devil, and the evangelist’s compunction to declare so, loudly and often. They even take themselves off on bizarre little day trips to towns up and down the country, just to not fit in somewhere else for a while. They know how the country should be run, and it is definitely not how it’s being done right now!

Essentially, they are a backward, primitive people, stuck in the past, out of place and out of their depth in the 21st Century. They stand apart from society, regarding it (us) with fear and hatred, chanting their mantra of “Taking Our Country Back!” while waving their crosses and upside down flags. The problem is they want to drag us all back with them. Right back to the 1970s, when the National Front were popular, and racism and light entertainment were interchangeable. A time when (they fondly imagine) a white man could call anyone who wasn’t a white man anything he wanted, and if said not white man objected, a handy policeman would be happy to arrest him and beat him up for the crime of being not white.

BF Dewsbury advance party January 16th 2016 Jayda Fransen and thugsWhen they rail against “political correctness” (which is most of the time, it seems) what they’re actually bemoaning is the fact that they can’t use the ‘N’ word (or the ‘P’ word or the ‘W’ word or whatever word they think will be the most wounding) without some “traitorous libtard” labelling them with the ‘R’ word. Oh how they don’t like the ‘R’ word. The ‘R’ word seems to affect them in the same way that they think pork products affect Muslims. It is Biffer Kryptonite. You just have to look at how defensive/aggressive they get when the ‘R’ word gets thrown in their direction. “Islam isn’t a race” they’ll bleat. “Its a made up word, and made up by a lefteye to boot” they’ll claim (erroneously – plus ça change). They’ll fluster and they’ll bluster and they’ll get all offended and upset and shouty, bless. They do, however, reserve full rights to use the ‘R’ word to describe anyone who isn’t them, whenever they think they can get away with it.

It’s all a bit one sided, but then just about all they say and do is. Like their stance on freedom of expression, which can be summarised simply as “we say what we like and you can fuck off if you don’t agree”. It’s the fash equivalent of a toddler screaming obscenities in public, then doing the “blah blah blah” thing with their fingers in their ears when they get told off by the grown ups. That’s Britain First, the “Political Party” with 1.2 million likes on Facebook, but only about ten dozen on their “Days of Action”. Britain First, the “Political Party” that wants to stand Paul Golding in the London Mayoral Elections, despite his only previous experience in office being as a piss poor borough councillor for the piss poor BNP. He couldn’t even manage to serve his whole term – much to the relief of the constituents of the ward, I’m sure. Britain First, the “Political Party” who long for a civil war, want their opponents hung and anyone “a bit brown” deported.

A serious “Political Party”? Until they can manage to assimilate themselves into civilised society and behave like adults, I wouldn’t trust them with a game of Buckaroo.
