No forced repatriation!

Yesterday, July 6th 2016 the House of Commons voted by a massive majority to secure the status of EU nationals in the UK. The motion was passed by 245 votes to 2 in what can only be described as a landslide victory for decency and common sense. After two weeks of anxiety the UK’s migrant population can sleep a little more easily, safe in the knowledge that there will be no arbitrary deportation, no matter how vocally racists and nationalists may demand it.

houses of parliament

This result not only restores some of the dignity this country has lost thanks to the appalling actions of some UK nationals over the last fortnight. It also underlines the Great British commitment to fairness, equality and our wholesale rejection of racism and narrow-minded nationalism.

Well done parliament. Now let’s put all this idiotic talk of repatriation behind us and start planning for our collective post-brexit future, nationals and migrants alike.

Britain First and the history of European Nazism

The problem with making historical comparisons is they’re never precise enough to satisfy the pedants and rarely obvious enough to catch the attention of most people. That’s because the majority of us have enough to deal with just coping with the necessities of everyday living. People haven’t time to go around studying political history and most don’t have the inclination to search for comparisons and similarities between modern UK and the worst of European thought.

EBF understands that. We know that to many this article will seem like an over-reaction to current events. But we think it important that we highlight the broad trends of 21st century ideologies even if the exact details differ from the precise events of the past. Modern Europe is very different from that of 80 or 90 years ago. Mass communication is easier and less controlled which accelerates the speed of social change. Deceitful propaganda is more easily spread and ideas, even dangerous ones can take hold of a population like wildfire.

EBF BF Wake up and rise up.pngBut people are still essentially the same. Their fears are the same, their vulnerability to manipulative ideologues is the same and their tendency to look for scapegoats to blame is the same. Our species hasn’t evolved at all in a few decades. We are as we were and what we were was frightening.

In 1920s Germany economic hardship was rife. People were literally starving to death as food became more and more expensive and wages, even for those lucky enough to be employed at all couldn’t keep up. Many felt hopeless and helpless.

In post 2007 Europe whole countries went bankrupt and others, like UK saw the weakest citizens, those suffering from disabling conditions or those who were unable to find work stripped of their incomes, sanctioned by civil servants or forced to work for nothing to ease the wage burden on large companies like Tesco, Asda and even’ the Biffers’ favourite’ – Gregg’s the baker’s. Many argue that this was little more than state-sponsored slavery designed to increase private, corporate profits at the expense of the public purse as several employers cut jobs, replacing paid employees with unskilled, forced (workfare) labour instead. Many at the bottom rungs of society felt hopeless and helpless.

In Post WW1 Germany a group of veterans calling themselves the Frei Corp (Free Army) began releasing propaganda explaining that Germany’s predicament was all the fault of international Jewry. This wasn’t true but it suited the emotional need of some of the people to scapegoat someone other than themselves.

In post-recession UK groups like Britain First began releasing propaganda blaming Muslims for all the country’s problems. This isn’t true either but it suits the emotional need of some of the people to scapegoat someone other than themselves.

In 1920s Germany Adolf Hitler joined a small group of far right nationalists and quickly rose to prominence within what was one day to become the Nazi party.

In 2010 a relatively minor official in the British National Party (a far right nationalist group) broke away from the party to form his own rival group – Britain First.

In 1920s Germany the government largely ignored the Nazis. They were only one of many far right factions and they seemed too busy fighting amongst themselves to be of any significance.

In 2010 the UK government largely ignored Britain First. They were only one of many far right factions and they seemed too busy fighting amongst themselves to be of any significance.

In 1920s Germany Hitler’s Nazi party made very little impact. The demonstrations they held were violent armed conflicts and so the authorities eventually acted. When Hitler tried to begin an armed revolution and held hostage two government officials he was overwhelmed, tried and imprisoned for sedition.

In modern UK, Britain First incites violence against Muslims and immigrants but Golding et al have learned from history and never personally involve themselves in such crimes.

In 1930s Germany the Frei Corp became the Brown Shirts – the organised street fighters who persecuted Jews – their most infamous incident was ‘The night of broken glass’ or ‘Kristalnacht’ during which Jewish homes, businesses and synagogues were attacked in a domestic atrocity ordered by Hitler himself.

In modern UK we have not seen anything on the scale of Kristalnacht yet. We have however seen attacks against Muslim shops, Mosques and businesses, including arson and several Muslim deaths. At least one 81 year old Muslim was beaten to death by Britain First supporters whilst on his way to his local Mosque for morning prayers.

From the 1920s onwards Hitler and his cronies used dehumanising propaganda to isolate and encourage violence against German Jews.

From 2010 onwards Britain First has used dehumanising propaganda to isolate and encourage violence against British Muslims.

EBF BF Nazi dehumanisation

The German Nazis relied upon nationalism and a sense of ‘taking back control’ to fuel their hatred.

Britain First relies upon nationalism and a sense of ‘taking back control’ to fuel its hatred.

BBC3 BF WWOCB Title page

The internet and the speed with which social media spreads ideas around means that the popular nationalism that took the Nazis 15 years to achieve has taken Britain First with its social media savvy operation a third of that time. What they lack is political clout but there’s time for that and they’re certainly trying hard.

And it’s not just Britain First. There are other, equally disturbing groups at work in the UK. Nationalists organisations echo the same message of hate. Groups like the English Defence League and countless others also rely upon the same propaganda to fuel a nationalism that seems hell bent on taking this country back to a past that only really existed in their imaginations. Respectable political groups like UKIP seem almost to legitimise the nationalist agenda and may well be the key to political influence for all the other nationalist groups.

Brexit send them back T shirt

It’s no coincidence that ‘Vote UKIP’ is a common refrain from the racist nationalists we interact with across social media. Britain First is unlikely to gain any political power but that doesn’t mean they can’t support UKIP. Golding and Fransen have already created something like a Frei Corp in waiting. Their own website describes Britain First as a ‘Street defence organisation’ and their regular calls for civil war against Muslims and their (admittedly laughable as yet) attempts to train their members in combat skills seems to point very clearly in one particular direction. Might they become UKIP’s Brown shirts in time?

EBF BF fight club

If the problem was only UK based that might be less of a concern but similair trends can be seen across Europe. Some countries are further along this dark path and it’s not hard to see where we’re all being driven. This week in Austria a far right party using the slogan ‘Austria First’ (there’s a coincidence) narrowly failed to become the ruling political party in the country’s national election.

EBF BF Austria far right Nazi election.pngIn the style of their Austrian predecessor, Adolf Hitler they are now forcing a new election. Hitler’s Nazi party also forced elections until they got the result they wanted. We’d hoped that Austrians would know better, given their country’s part in WW2 but seemingly not. Like Brits and many other European nationals they have short memories. It remains to be seen how prophetic the result of the UK’s recent ‘Brexit’ referendum may be. The result (48% v 52%) is strikingly close to the Austrian result after a campaign that was fought much more along nationalist and racist lines than any other issue. We believe that there is very real cause for concern both here in the UK and abroad.

Holland, a country defeated by the Nazis and subjected to all the horrors of occupation is currently seeing the rise of its own brand of Nationalism. Even Germany, the birthplace of Pegida has a growing number of fascists within its population. Similair stories can be told about many Western nations from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean. The far right hasn’t won yet but it’s making remarkably good headway.

There’s still time to turn this around. Please help us to spread the word and stop the neo-Nazis from dragging us back into the darkness of former decades.

Inside the mind of a Biffer

A regular topic in the EBF office is motivation. What drives the Biffers to be so hateful? How can otherwise ordinary people embrace such malice and wish so much harm on their fellow humans?

Over the last few days I’ve made it my mission to try to answer this question, not for every Biffer but at least for some. It isn’t always easy to trawl through the comments on the Britain First Facebook page but it seemed to be a reasonable place to find the answer to my question. What did the Biffers themselves say about their concerns and how do these comments fit together to produce the hatred and cruelty they advocate?

Taking a methodical, step by step perspective was quite revealing and whilst not all that surprising did provide some insight into the way that Britain First manipulates ordinary people, just as their German forerunners did almost a century earlier.

‘Our’ people

160319 BF white genocide propaganda FB meme comments EBF 4.png

The first thing Britain First does is create a sense of identity. Biffers need to be brought to identify with the group of ‘our people’. So Britain First regularly produces memes on social media to help them develop this sense of identity. The Biffer ‘in group’ is made up of white Brits, ex-pats and Christians. Out-groups include Muslims (of course), non-whites and immigrants (unless they come from America or Australia).

Colour

The idea of ‘white flight’ and ‘white genocide’ is a recurring theme in the identification process.

white pride black pride BF EBF

Regular appeals to increase white birth rate serve not so much to actually encourage more births but to imbue the Biffers with a sense that ‘their’ race is in peril, international statistics on normalisation of immigrant birth rates notwithstanding.

160319 BF white genocide propaganda FB meme comments EBF

Religion

The Biffers don’t act like Christians (except perhaps for the congregation of the Westboro Baptist Church) but they repeatedly claim to be Christians. They appeal to the dispossessed and the downtrodden in the same way that early Christians did in Judea and beyond. By hijacking established tenets of traditional Christianity they can present a seemingly familiar front for their decidedly unfamiliar neo-nazism.

The comments from their supporters show just how effective this tactic is as people use a religion that speaks of peace to justify the hatred of fascism, apparently without the slightest sense of irony.

160319 BF white genocide propaganda FB meme comments EBF 9.png

Nationality

Nationalism is their biggest theme, of course. This is the mainstay of Britain First’s raison d’etre as they work toward an all-British, all-white and decidedly Aryan Britain. So the group identity of Britishness is pushed hard. And the sheeple respond.

160319 BF white genocide propaganda FB meme comments EBF 11.png

Perceived threat

It’s not enough to establish group identity though. That doesn’t engender hatred. For really fervent malice it’s necessary to pretend that the group is under attack, preferably from those too weak to defend themselves. Groups like minority religious populations or desperate refugees.

160319 BF white genocide propaganda FB meme comments EBF 5

Exaggerated horror to come

The technique is simple. Identify with the in group. Breed fear of the out group and then play on the peoples’ newly installed fears.

160319 BF white genocide propaganda FB meme comments EBF 12

Hatred

Then sit back and watch the hatred develop. It doesn’t have to be rational – it just has to be visceral.

160319 BF white genocide propaganda FB meme comments EBF 14

Hostility

Once that groundwork has been completed it’s a short step to turn fear and hatred into open hostility and the volunteers to fund or create violence come forward of their own accord.

160319 BF white genocide propaganda FB meme comments EBF 13.png

Malice

Keep fuelling the fire with perceived obstructions to ‘our’ way of life or evidence of ‘alien’ activities to underscore the problem ‘our group’ faces and let the people whip themselves up into their own frenzy of malice.

160319 BF white genocide propaganda FB meme comments EBF 10.png

Simple solutions to complex problems

Every complex problem has a simple solution – and it’s always wrong!

The current refugee crisis is the result of a complex conspiracy of circumstances involving geo-politics, financial exploitation, religious tensions, racial stereotyping and opportunist extremism. That’s exactly the sort of complicated melting-pot of variables that Britain First is least equipped to comprehend. But that doesn’t stop the Biffers from wading in with their ill-conceived suggestions.

BF Greece refugees header

It’s hard to imagine just how desperate you would need to be to leave everything you have and walk across hostile territory to a foreign land, risking death from exhaustion, exposure, drowning or even kidnap and slavery along the way. We at EBF freely admit that we just cannot imagine how that must feel – and we count ourselves fortunate because of it.

Such desperation is far beyond our experience. All we really know is that the decent thing, the compassionate thing (and for those of us who believe, the Christian thing) is to help our fellow humans in their hour of need.

Let’s have a look at what the ‘Christian’ Biffers want to do. How would they handle the situation?

BF Greece refugees comments 1

It seems that they have a very different view of Christian charity from the rest of us. It’s small wonder that every single British church group has condemned their rhetoric and their actions in no uncertain terms.

BF Greece refugees comments 2

These are not the considered, measured words of intelligent, caring leaders. These are not the attitudes of people we would want to ‘take our country back’ from its current, compassionate state. These are not the ‘elite’ defenders of British values that Dutchy would have us believe. These are callous, hypocritical, ill-informed, bloodthirsty, fascist scum.

These are the people who must never gain power in UK.

BF Greece refugees comments 3

It’s easy to come up with simple solutions when you have no real responsibility for solving the problem. Just like their followers, Fuhrer Golding and Dutchy Fransen have no real world authority (Fransen managed only 56 votes in the Rochester and Strood by-election and Britain First didn’t even stand a candidate in the last General Election). They’re not even a party in opposition – they’re a party with absolutely no elected representatives at any level in UK. They don’t even have any parish councillors (the lowest level of British government)!

So they can spout whatever jingoistic rubbish they like without ever having to think about how to make it work or the damage their ridiculous policies would cause. That’s the one great advantage of powerlessness. You never have to prove what you say – you just keep on saying it and your followers, at least those stupid enough to remain your followers, will believe it and repeat it.

There’s a simple solution to every complex problem. And it’s always wrong!

View from a Cellar 5

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

James Bond joins the Biffers

Before we begin -credit where it’s due… Much of the ‘leg work’ in finding this guy was done by IRBF.  As has quite rightly been pointed out to us they deserve to get some real credit for their work in identifying him. Without their co-operation we wouldn’t have found him nearly so quickly, if at all. You can find IRBF on Facebook and Twitter.

Don’t worry, Daniel Craig hasn’t suddenly lost his sense of proportion and become a Nazi. It’s not THAT James Bond. It’s this guy…

James Bond Varma joins BF with Golding at Dewsbury

He wasn’t always called James Bond. He used to be Sushant Varma until he changed his name by Deed poll. He also used to be a doctor in the NHS until he was struck off by the GMC in a scandal involving deception, attention-seeking and self-aggrandisement.

sushant varma james bond struck off GMC register not a registered doctor

He’s always been a bit of a self-publicist, it seems. You can read all about his ‘interesting times’ with the NHS here including how he tried to beat all the charges by claiming it was just racial discrimination. His new Biffer mates will love that bit, won’t they?

Bond himself is colour blind, or so he says. In fact he makes that point repeatedly (that he’s NOT racist) in this video about why he won’t work with Asians. But he’s not racist. Confused, perhaps? An Asian who won’t work with Asians! But not racist? Yeah, right!

James Bond Varma asians not racist

Here he uses generalisation after generalisation to explain exactly why he won’t trust Asians (presumably including himself and members of his own family) because they’re not trustworthy, reliable or fair-minded. He goes so far as to explain that without exception he has never had a good experience with an Asian client.

This seems to contradict the story he relates in an earlier video here about an Asian woman he worked with very successfully. Are you confused yet? So is James Bond Sushant Varma.

James Bond Varma ISIS crisis

In this video, The ISIS Crisis, he defends Muslims and Islam, making the point that “in excess of 99.9% of Muslims” oppose ISIS. So what is this guy doing with Britain First?

In truth we don’t know and we assume that he’s not terribly clear about that himself. What we do know is that his attention-seeking self-aggrandisement has led him to say just about anything that he thinks will get him some attention. From pretending to have been robbed of his holiday on a popular dating show (because of racism) to defending racists like Britain First the pattern has been consistent (or at least ‘consistently inconsistent’) all along.

When James Bond Sushant Varma opens his mouth the truth had better take cover because it’s definitely not his friend.

Yesterday Varma (we just can’t bring ourselves to call him James Bond) released another video explaining his participation in the Britain First march in Dewsbury. It seems that he hopes to be Britain First’s new poster boy and token Asian in the same way that Guramit Singh (remember him) was the token Asian for the EDL. There are some differences..

Singh was Sikh whereas Sushant’s background is Hindu
Singh had to go on the run and eventually went to prison for drugs offences
Singh isn’t a registered medical practitioner and Sushant is neither is Sushant
Singh was a self-aggrandising, attention-seeking liar and… oh hang on…

Let’s look at what Varma says in the video itself.

bf Sushant Varma James Bond video

“Britain First isn’t racist. It’s a nationalist, loyalist organisation”

Frankly we’re sick and tired of hearing this rubbish. Of course they’re racist as anyone with half a brain cell can see. The fact that Varma is using this controversial group for his own attention-seeking purposes doesn’t change that.

“I’m not the token Asian”

Oh yes, you are. Just as you’re using Britain First for your publicity, they’re using you to justify their claims not to be racist.

“I was not paid to be there”

Frankly we neither know nor care whether or not he was paid. He was there and he’s a fool if he thinks it’ll benefit him to side with white supremacist racists who hate all non-whites, regardless of creed, background or character.

James Sushant goes on to report that he wasn’t the only non-typical British WASP in Dewsbury last weekend. There was an Afro-Carribean bloke called Pedro, 2 Polish folk and a couple who were Japanese (or maybe Chinese). His medical training didn’t include racial awareness, apparently. He eventually decided that he’ll just say they’re “from the orient”. That should do it. That’s a grand total of 5 non Brits (3 non-whites) in a crowd of ‘faasands’ of ‘patriots’. Because they’re not racist.

Eventually he gets to the point. James Sushant is clear that he hasn’t the authority to speak for Britain First (we bet he hasn’t) but he wants ‘quality immigration’. This means he wants to copy the 6 criteria the white Australians use. You know – the people descended from penal exportation from UK.

The 6 criteria are…

Good command of English
Respect laws
Respect culture
Good health
Fully integrate
Be able to make a positive contribution

I don’t normally swear in blogs but I’m sorry – this really boils my piss!

Fuck off Sushant!

Are you really saying that the more desperate and helpless people are, the less help you’d be prepared to offer?

Fuck off Sushant!

Are you really pretending that our law is at risk? Didn’t you say earlier that most Asians abide by the laws of the land? Do you really think that your status as Britain First’s token brown person will make people take you seriously?

Fuck off Sushant!

James Sushant also tells us that genuine refugees, political prisoners and asylum seekers are a tiny minority of those ‘coming forward’. Have you seen the scale of the refugee crisis James Sushant?

Fuck off Sushant!

What’s with the Arnold Schwarzenegger reference? For pity’s sake! As a qualified (struck off) doctor you should know the problem with cherry-picked anecdotes. That’s not statistically valid – it’s just bollocks.

Fuck off Sushant!

What about the Sikhs who pay 7 grand tax each month and employ loads of Brits? I thought you said they weren’t trustworthy. How does that work? Are you being a little inconsistent?

Fuck off Sushant

He even witters on about how Marks and Spencer is a chainstore started by Jews. Presumably he’s not keen on cosying up to the BNP later then!

Fuck off Sushant!

James Bond Sushant Varma claims that the Biffers were well-behaved in Dewsbury. That’s not what we heard.

Fuck off Sushant!

He even likens them to Ghandi.

BF Sushant Varma James Bond Jayda Fransen Gandhi no comparison

Fuck off Sushant!

He goes on to remark that he grew up among integrated law abiding Muslims – nobody objects to them – “Nobody does”. Well – except Britain First who made it very clear in their speeches at the Dewsbury March that James Varma himself attended.

But he’s not asking anyone to lose their culture.

BBC3 WWOCB Islam ban Fayda Golding BF EBF combo

Hindus also celebrate Christmas and Easter – so what?? Muslims respect Christ as a prophet of God and respect Christians as ‘people of the book’.

Fuck off Sushant!

Sikhs – Give out free food – as do Hindus.

So do Muslims!

Fuck off Sushant!

In short – James Bond Sushant Varma is a hypocrite, a liar and a self-publicising, token brown person. He is about as trustworthy as a dealer in Vegas, a lawyer in a divorce court or a doctor in … oh wait…

Basically…

Fuck off Sushant!

A word from the Cellar #1

Landlord in cellarSo here we are again, another week of looking at mostly non biffer news for the new Exposing Bigotry and Fascism. This time I’m hidden in the cellar so the Landlady doesn’t hear my laughs as I look at the racist cockwombles and their attempts at showing the majority of us that white pride rules.

The recent attacks at a Mosque in Bristol have obviously been horrific for all concerned, yet the silent majority turned out in their hundreds over the weekend for tea and cakes in support of the Imam and the Muslim community. It shows again how normal, decent people show the hatred of the right is not supported.

An ‘action day’ by the openly racist National Action in Newcastle on Saturday was attended by 12 which was less than their unsuccessful romp in Liverpool where they only got as far as the station lost luggage and had banana’s thrown at them. Again, white priders showing that although they shout very loudly they really don’t have a lot of support.

Nazi newcastle Jan 2016 hitlerwasright national action.png

EDL Imbibing brotherhood brethren Bibo ergo sum in vino veritasThe EDL are bigging up their February drunken fight in Preston again despite being told they are not welcome by churches, councillors and the good people of Preston. Apparently there is a white no go area in Deepdale, however the video I’ve just seen shows a pub, white guys walking around and the fact it is a road that leads to the Preston North End football ground. In phoning the pub in this Muslim only area I found out that not only is the pub thriving but it, like other local drinking establishments is the hub of the community. Once again, proof that not only are the right lying but they just want to bring division to a community that lives and works together.

Pegida UK have a march in Birmingham, if it’s anything like Newcastle and in Scotland police and Antifa will swamp them again. This certainly isn’t the cleverest move by Tommy and Weston as they were pelted with snowballs in Denmark over the weekend. Again they were well countered. They seem to think that racists in mainland Europe will be like the racists over here. Once again the silent majority will show them what they feel.

Finally the biffers, I can’t leave them out, have their merry jaunt around Dewsbury. Only the most stupid of people will see this as anything but provocation, Goldibollocks you aren’t wanted, just as your flash demo in Luton was not wanted either. Great video by the way, brilliant editing. Your harridan, Dutchy confronts a lone Muslim mother and starts mouthing off as usual….then edited to show you as the victor, whereas a video I watched later has your victim saying she was surrounded by Biffer shittroopers so she couldn’t go anywhere. Fantastic intimidation, well done. The only trouble is Goldibollocks the true Christians of this area of Luton came out and apologised for your actions showing your brand of Christianity is not that as preached by the majority.

Message to BF from Luton Christians

So you see, the screeching, shouty voices of the right are in the minority, the silent majority are getting louder by the day. We’ve had enough of you all, your unfounded hatred, your racism and your crappy view of christianity. The silent majority have seen through your lies and vitriol and are opposing you in droves. And one day when the powers that be allow them you will be prosecuted by the police as they like the rest of us have had enough of you all. And oh, I’ve just heard those nice chaps at Yorkshire casuals are joining your march in Dewsbury, I’m sure your code of conduct will cover that!!

And now before my extremities get any colder I’m off for a pint.

Cheers

Bracelets of Division

juden yellow star nazi jewBeginning in Poland on November 23rd 1939, Nazi occupiers forced Jewish citizens to wear distinctive yellow stars on their clothing. The purpose of the ‘badge of shame’ as it was known was to ensure quick and easy identification of Jews at all times. It was, as security chief for France and Belgium, Helmut Knochen later stated “another step on the road to the final solution”. That final solution ultimately brought about the murderous slaughter of 6 million Jews throughout occupied Europe.

It seems unthinkable that such a policy could be repeated anywhere in Europe today. The very idea of forcing people to wear symbols that mark them out seems totally alien in our post WW2 world. And yet…

Earlier this week we were treated to what appears to be a non-story about red doors in Middlesbrough. The original claim by The Times was that red front doors were being used as a sort of ‘coded signal’ to isolate and publicise the whereabouts of refugees so that far right thugs could target them more easily. It didn’t take long for the Home Office to comment and soon the whole thing was the hot topic of the hour.

EBF didn’t say much about it at the time because there was nothing in the reports to tell us how many non-immigrant houses also had red doors. That lack of detail made us suspicious and so we waited to see how the story would develop. Unlike Britain First we actually prefer to report on true situations rather than made up ones. As it stands, one week on it’s still not clear but there is a strong argument that no such discrimination has occurred. We’ll wait and see. It might be true, it might be false.

red bracelet asylum seekers refugees discriminationWhatever the truth about the red doors scandal though there is another story that has much more of a ring of truth to it. That’s not unusual. One media story, whether accurate or not, can prompt people to go to the press with similair tales that really are accurate. This seems to be the case with the second ‘yellow star’ story of the week.

OK, it’s not actually a yellow star – it’s a brightly coloured wristband but the point is the same. According to The Guardian, refugees and Asylum seekers in Cardiff are being forced to wear distinctive wrist bands that identify them to the public. The wrist bands, once removed cannot be replaced and without them the refugees don’t get to eat. That looks pretty coercive to us.

It’s also a lot more plausible, not least because the company in charge of the situation, Clearsprings ready homes, a contractor for the Home Office has admitted to the practice and tried to rationalise it. The original ‘red door’ story was denied – this one wasn’t.
The rationalisation for this practice, so reminiscent of yellow stars in singling out a particular demographic is to do with administration of food. But there must be less discriminatory ways. We’ve been doing the same thing in schools with tickets and other tokens for decades. It’s not hard. Britain’s hostels and food banks seem able to manage to identify and feed people without making them wear badges or wristbands and we’re sure that other methods wouldn’t be entirely beyond the company with the Home Office contract for accommodating refugees and asylum seekers. So what gives?

Theresa May Home Secretary office governmentTwo Home Office contractors are accused of divisive discrimination in the same week. One admits it, the other may or may not be guilty. We have to wonder what is going on in Whitehall when taxpayers’ money is used in such a discriminatory way by people employed by the state and presumably then bound by European human rights laws to avoid discrimination.

We look forward to hearing how this matter has been rectified very soon. This isn’t 1939 and we’re not living in a Nazi state – at least not yet!

Bloody lefties ruin everything!

According to Britain First the ongoing refugee crisis as desperate, dispossessed human beings are forced to flee from their war-torn homes is the fault of left wing European politicians. This struck us as an interesting (if somewhat inexplicable) perspective so we decided to investigate.

BF EBF immigrant refugee death left wing politicians Europe 2015The obvious starting place was the ‘Express’ article the Biffers cited in their original Britain First Facebook post. You can read it for yourself here. Far from blaming left wing politicians for this unfolding tragedy the Express quoted the Director General of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), William Lacy Swing who seems clear in blaming the historically inaccurate anti-immigration narrative so favoured by the right wing.

It is the lying perspective of Britain First and the rest of their callous neo-nazis that prevents nations from offering the compassionate aid that these refugees so obviously need. We began to wonder why Britain First chose not to mention the point the article was actually making…

BF socialism liberal university typicalIntrigued by the apparent inability of the Biffers to read the links they post we thought we’d take a look at what else they blame the left for. It’s quite an eye-opener…

Lots of Biffer posts try to reduce the left (which they seem to define as anyone who isn’t a neo-nazi) to a single homogenous group of vacuous ‘rich kids’. ‘The left’ seems to be a catch all term for socialists, liberals, conservatives, atheists, Muslims, humanists and pretty well all foreigners or non-whites. They use the terms ‘left wing’ and ‘liberal’ interchangeably which itself demonstrates their political naivety. To make matters worse they go on to characterise their artificially unified opposition in some remarkably unsophisticated and immature ways.
In typically immature manner they pull faces at Lefties without once making any sort of comment about which left wing policies they oppose.

Perhaps it’s the NHS they hate or the fact that working people have rights, sick pay, a minimum wage, paid holidays and the right to safe working environments. Maybe it’s the leftist practice of free state education or the way that people are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. Maybe it’s the fact that people are provided for when they’re out of work or the way that national insurance supports the sick and disabled. Hmm – how dare those pesky lefties (defined by the Biffers as non-nazis) care about stuff like that?

Then we get to the point. The Biffers hate lefties because we see through their attempt to make all foreigners look like terrorists. Remember the core values of Britain First…

1. White supremacism

2. Religious intolerance

Anyone who doesn’t agree with their vile, divisive ideology must be discredited. The last time anyone tried their particular brand of fascism they used a straightforward strategy of categorising everyone who disagreed as ‘lefties’ so why not do the same? After all, it worked for the last Fuhrer.

They even threw in some remarkably disingenuous religious dogma for good measure (not that anyone will really be fooled by such an obvious misinterpretation of ancient texts).

That’s just cover – a smokescreen to try to mask their true agenda. In reality they’re just following their leader.

Beer 2Well now the festivities are over and hangovers nursed in the Landlords household, the pirates seem to have finally buggered off, the hobnob cupboard in the office needs replenishing(hint) but at least the Blue Nun and the babysham was imbibed. I had 3 major resolutions to try and keep. The first – to be nice to trolls lasted 4 minutes. The second – not to get pissed off with the biffers lasted 2 and the last – to get decent coffee for the office lasted 8 hours.

So to the roundup of all things biffer from last week…

Well Goldibollocks graced us with his considerable presence, trying to look statesmanlike but failing miserably, informing his congregation that he was proud to be arrested. Paulie, proud you miserable cockwomble, of harassing a elderly woman in her home, proud of sticking two fingers up at the Queen by wearing a tatty green bin bag with her crown emblazoned on it, and proud of being leader of a fascist organisation.

Biffer central seem to be sending an endless amount of trolls over, who we tolerate to a degree, and love reading you lot ripping into them and the comedy value of your replies. Indeed we are currently discussing a new virtual award for troll hunting. It proves beyond any doubt that the powers that be over in Bifferland are worried about our continued presence, getting bigger by the day. Other anti groups also continue to grow as well so the people are out there, getting louder and getting to their leaders.

Floods, lots of them. Loads of damage to infrastructure and homes. People struggling under the deluge. But we saw something happening. Huge community spirit, help from Christians, from Sikh’s, Athiests, Muslims, refugees, giving up time, food and money for the victims, not caring who they are. What did Britain First do, with their 1.1 million disciples? They sent a meme out asking those who receive foreign aid to send £3. I think, Goldibollocks and Dutchy, you have fucked up badly on it.

Our picture of Syrian refugees was trolled relentlessly, it seems that most of the mainstream media and even the Washington Post isn’t enough proof for them. Well up yours Biffers! People in this country have long memories and when you have your drunken stroll through Dewsbury there will be a few good people of Hebden Bridge and other affected areas coming to join the ranks of the real British people opposing you.

And finally, instead of a conference the Biffers are going to have a weekend festival somewhere in Lincolnshire, complete with burger vans (halal?) and beer tent. And this brings me to my final resolution of this year, to harass and harry anything you do.

Have a meet up at a pub? Not if I can help it!

Your festival? Not if I can help it?

A march? I’m going to be there!

A meme? Yep you guessed it.

In fact, whatever you do I’m going to counter it with my fellow admins and my mates on the page.

Send your trolls in. We’ll counter them to shreds!

Try to discredit us. We’ll laugh and repudiate your claims!

We are Christian, Athiest, Muslim and agnostic. We are from a wide range of backgrounds with contacts in many places. And EBF is getting stronger from the people who send us in memes, links and information. Britain First may not have been involved in the floods but they will reap the deluge that’s coming their way.

Finally, may I wish all our mates on the page, and the trolls too, a very happy and prosperous new year.

Cheers,

Landlord
