Cable Street: 81 years and still No pasaran!

mosleyIt’s exactly 81 years since the people of Britain held back the first incarnation of uniformed British fascists at the East London barricades of Cable Street. Responding to a Europe-wide trend of Fascism that stretched from the Eastern European Slavic states to Italy, Spain and Germany, the British Union of Fascists sought to make Britain a far-right dictatorship along the lines of Hitler’s Germany. Vehemently racist and anti-Semitic, the BUF was led by Oswald Mosley, an English aristocrat who saw international Jewry as the enemy of the world and who believed passionately in the ‘dog eat dog’ struggle of social Darwinism. For Mosley and his supporters, democracy was a weakness, Nothing short of violent revolution would be sufficient to realise the Blackshirts’ dream of one nation, one empire and one leader. Mosley seems to have learned that from his German friend and mentor, Adolf Hitler whose Nazi party slogan, Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuhrer was a strong influence on the BUF and its upper echelons.

The British Union of Fascists was one of several far-right organisations in 1930s Britain. The Right Club and The Nordic League (also both with ties to Nazi Germany) were less well-known but equally fascist in their ideals. There was significant cross-over in membership and all were profoundly racist and anti-Semitic. All preferred dictatorship over democracy and all saw Hitler, Mussolini and Franco as role models.

The BUF was the one with most appeal to the working class though. The Blackshirts combined street violence and visceral prejudice with political policies that scapegoated the vulnerable and sought above all to maintain the privileged status quo that, despite oppressing most of their supporters, did at least allow them to feel superior to Johnny foreigner. In that respect the BUF was a cross between today’s UKIP and Britain First movements and its divisive policies clearly serve as inspiration for both.

Golding may not have the courage of Mosley, a genuine war hero and the Biffers may be only a pitiful parody of the genuinely disciplined Blackshirts but don’t let that fool you. Their objectives are the same, even if they have no chance of organising themselves sufficiently to achieve them.

cable-streetOn Sunday October 4th 1936 things came to a head. Mosley and his deputy William Joyce had planned to hold a march, a show of strength to further harass and intimidate the many Jews living in the district. They had amassed between four and six thousand BUF supporters, all smartly uniformed and well-disciplined like a tight-knit military unit to march through the area as  part of the same time-honoured ‘march and grow’ strategy so favoured by modern fascist groups like Britain First and the English Defence League. Unfortunately for the fash things didn’t quite go according to plan.

They arrived in East London to be met by well over 100,000 opposers from all over Britain. The intended route anticipated the Blackshirts marching down Cable St, an important thoroughfare that stretched from Butcher Row all the way to Dock St. To march unopposed down Cable St would have meant a strong symbolic victory for Mosley’s fascists, allowing them to claim dominance over the most multi-cultural part of the city, arguably of the whole country. Cable St.  was the prize and Cable St. was where they must be stopped.

Barricades were erected along the route from furniture, vans parked across the road, mattresses, sandbags, even suitcases. Every entrance to the street was blocked. Even the junction with ‘Golding St.’, named after the Jewish jewellers who worked there was secured. Although not in the least ironic at the time, this has certainly raised an eyebrow or two since, leading many to speculate about the true heritage of Der Englander Fuhrer, Paul Golding himself.

What followed was a three-way battle between Mosley’s fascists, the anti-fascist crowds who had come to block their path and the beleaguered and outnumbered police who tried vainly to secure a path for Mosley and his men. Many would later claim, indeed still do claim that far from remaining neutral the police actually fought alongside the BUF against the protesters. We at EBF make no claim to know the truth of this but given the political climate of the day it seems at least plausible to suppose that they might have.

What we do know is that the Blackshirts did not pass the Cable St. barricade. We know that many, including Mosley himself were injured in the violence that ensued that day and we know that the East End of London won a victory that resounded not only throughout the nation but across the decades as well.

Never again has any fascist organisation gained the sort of popularity that the BUF enjoyed all those years ago. Never again has the British population allowed any far-right group from the British National Party to the National Front and the English Defence League the space to grow unopposed. Never again will fascists get to intimidate our citizens in the sort of numbers our forefathers saw in the 1930s.

This is our legacy.

This is the legacy of Cable St.

This is why Britain First is doomed never again to muster more than a few dozen supporters to their real world events.

The spirit of Cable St lives on in the national mindset and through the memory of that epic stand the Great British people continue to echo the proud, strong slogan of East London’s finest pre-war hour…

They shall not pass!

Is this the real life? by Landlord

As the song goes……

Is this the real life, or is it just fantasy?

The last few days have been like my wife talking about East Coronation Farm Oaks or in other words a soap opera starring the biffer high command.

As I wrote on the page we will not put anything on the page until we confirm the veracity of the allegations but we can draw conclusions from them and wonder what can happen further down the line.

We receive messages on a weekly basis from Moley and this has hinted at misdeeds by Screechy and Goldibollocks but with no viable proof, unlike the biffers, we won’t publish.
These allegations that we’ve seen over the last few days could be the beginning of the end for the biffers as in fighting causes them to implode, it could be the start of a hostile takeover by Screechy and factions close to her or it could be an elaborate hoax to test the loyalty of the high command.

The last of these would mean that someone in the Fuhrer bunker has the intelligence to start such a ruse!

Fuhrer bunkerWe are well aware of certain factions trying to take over Britain First. The woman at the centre of these allegations is a racist, a member of a Polish far right organisation that the biffers have been courting and probably been trying to get funds from. Could it be that these fascists want more than just a connection?

Tommy Robinson has been sniffing about the high command recently. Maybe the amount of money that the biffers fleece from their sheeple has attracted him like a fly over shit.

Screechy has appeared recently to be more than just the Nazi wet dream poster girl. Now Leader of the ‘Northern Ireland division’ it seems to us that she has manoeuvred herself into poll position for Fuhrer! She certainly has, from what I have seen, a huge support from biffers and respect from other fash movements. Where Goldibollocks is seen by most despicable right wing fucknuggets as a conman who would sell out for five faaaaaasand paaaaands, Screechy really is a nasty fash.

Whichever one it could be, as someone who is dedicated to their downfall I’ll watch with enjoyment as the Fuhrer bunker crumbles around their ears!

A view from a barstool #29 by Landlord

Beer 2I’m back, a few weeks away as my business took off and no time to watch,listen and take the piss out of all things biffer.

Whilst I’ve been away there have been numerous opportunities for them to post their bile and islamophobic nonsense. Brexit, whether you voted for it or not, seems to have given the green light for the unsavoury few to carry out nasty, racial attacks. The murders in mainline Europe seem to, in biffer minds anyway, have got the Islam haters in a tizz and want to start a civil war, despite the fact that France, America et al are bombing the shit outof civilians in Aleppo and elsewhere whilst the true ememy, Daesh sit around laughing while the biffers and Western Governments do their propoganda for them. British armed police alongside G4S are ready for them. I trust our police, just, but G4S, I don’t trust them to even read my electricity meters.

As I watched from afar, the biffers have gone on a camping trip, which although very funny, was also quite sinister. Screechy was strangely quiet, but more about her later, Goldibollocks has gone into full begging mode, and the rest of the shittroopers and high command have had their racist routines curtailed by the exasperated police forces.

Goldibollocks has been in court. He says he has pulled a blinder, instead he has basically fucked the Biffer high command over. He came out and produced a triumphant video telling his sheeple that he had completely put the CPS into a frenzy by pleading guilty. No, Goldibollocks, you haven’t. You now have a conviction, however you want to dress it up, and a criminal record to boot. Also if any of the shit troopers and high command go out on their leaflet days with hoodies etc, the Police now know they can arrest them and point to the guilty plea by Der Fuhrer and Jims your uncle…….conviction.

BF Goldong stitch up court jayda fransen magistrates charges.png

As I write this on Friday afternoon, Screechy is probably having her case heard in Luton. Now in her case there is more to it than Goldibollocks having three specific charges against her.

  • Charge one, wearing political uniform. Now I’m no legal eagle but if Goldibollocks pled guilty there is no way Screechy can go not guilty.
  • Charge two, failing to surrender to bail conditions. Not guilty she says, but again how can she. In one of her memorable video’s she ripped up her ail conditions and said she would no longer sign on, how she can plead not guilty to this is beyond me.
  • Charge three, racial aggravation, again not guilty she says. Even a heavily edited biffer video can see Screechyis the aggressor, flanked by her bodyguards(who to me are hilarious fucknuggets) openly intimidating Muslims going about a shopping trip.

If the biffers think that they were the only ones who are allowed to make videos then they are even bigger fuckwits than I think they are, this and the fact we live ina country with the largest amount of CCTV camera’s in Europe, you would think that this may have made her think again. According to friends that are in the know on legal matters, the CPS have to have an overwhelming amount of evidence before beinging the case to court.

With my small amount of legal knowledge, fighting this case is pretty futile. If Screechy pulls a “blinder” and pleads guilty she gets away with a fine and a suspended jail sentence, but if she does that police forces and councils around the country can apply for the same banning orders as Beds Police. If she pleads not guilty, and goes to crown court, not only is there a possibility of jail time, there is also a possibility of being held on remand.

Whatever they decide watch out for begging letters, video’s and buckets.

Finally before I go and change a barrel, the biffers triumphant roadshow went to Coventry last week, and a massive 25 patriots turned up. Take off Screechy and Goldibollocks along with thier shittroopers a total of about 12 were there. They are alledgedly turning up in Cardiff soon. They may call it a roadshow but I like to refer to it as a game of musical chairs.

Wear a safety pin

This is brilliant!

Yesterday we posted a number of T-shirt suggestions to reassure ethnic minorities that we’re not all racist. But forget that – this is better. It’s easier, it’s more permanent (you don’t need to keep washing it) and it can be distributed around your friends for just pennies.

Wear a safety pin to show that you’re safe. Get it – a SAFETY pin. Let the whole of the country know that you’re not going to abuse ethnic minorities. Let the world know that you’re not racist. Let your neighbours know that you’re safe!

Wear a safety pin!

Mair and the media

Tommy Mair Westminster magistrates courtRecent events have brought Britain First into the media spotlight and not in a good way. Tommy Mair shouting “Britain First!” and then spluttering on about death to traitors in court has brought the Biffers and their murderous intentions into the public eye in a way that we at EBF could only have dreamed of. We’re grateful to those national papers who have begun to see them for what they really are.

So it seems ungrateful to ask more of a media that has already done so much but there’s a very real danger here that the real point will be missed.

Yes, it’s true that Britain First have no real membership to speak of. It’s true that their extremist views are not shared openly by much of the British population. But that’s not the whole story.

Even allowing for bought likes and page merging-scams their page does have a significant number of genuine likes. That means that their reach across social media is huge and even though not many people would call themselves neo-Nazis many are taken in by the general tone of their rhetoric. So we’d like to ask two things of mainstream media…

When you report on the joke that is Britain First please also point out the dangers of their evil messages spreading relentlessly across social media. They really do have an influence. That’s why hate crime is on the rise. That’s why our society is becoming ever more intolerant. Britain First isn’t the only group spreading this filth but it is probably the most effective.

Please don’t forget about these neoNazi malcontents when the next story breaks. They aren’t going to stop their relentless assault upon the peace of our nation so please, don’t you let up either. We’ll happily let you know as major stories start to break if you inbox us with a contact. You can message us via our Facebook page or Email the EBF blog at exposingbf@hotmail.com

Who knows – you might get a scoop (do journalists still use that word?).

Now you know what Britain First is capable of, please help us to keep the pressure on. They’re far more dangerous than they first appear.

Thankyou.

Team EBF

 

Scouting’s for boys – not for Biffers

Baden Powell was a true patriot. He was an accomplished soldier and founder of the Boy Scout movement. The Boy scout idea sprang from observing the boys of the Mafeking Cadet Force, children too young to fight who supported military operations as part of their own, separate organisation.

On his return to England Baden Powell was delighted to learn that his ideas gained some traction and he organised the first ever scout camp in 1907. The event was a success and the rest is history.

Baden Powell, founder of the Scouting movement had a dream. He wanted to help turn boys into men. He did so by teaching discipline, respect and ‘scout craft’ – a set of ideas based loosely around the Native American practices of ‘wood craft’. Then as now, countless boys and girls across the world learn the skills that will help fit them to take their place in the adult world. The Boy Scout movement, aliong with its sister movement, the Girl Guides is the domain for children with big dreams. It is not the domain of adults with low aspirations and hate-filled hearts. In short, it’s not for Biffers!

EBF BF Walts camping trip wales terrorist training camp

Last weekend a sorry bunch of wannabe soldiers tried their hand at camping out in Wales. They want us to believe that these hardened survivalists were there honing their skills in preparation for some imaginary resistance operation. They want us to think that they are the last best hope for the survival of Britain. Well, if that’s true, God help us all.

The truth is that this rather sad, sorry, bedraggled collection of middle-aged Walter Mitties is nothing more than a stain on the fine Welsh countryside. They’d be tragic if they weren’t so funny. Dressed in combat fatigues adorned with undeserved regalia they cut a comical sight, playing about with knives and pretending to know how to pitch the tent they bought in the Halfords sale the previous Thursday afternoon.

My youngest son is 10 years old. He’s been a cub for a few years now and is looking forward to graduating to the scouts soon. He’s been on camping trips and summer barbecues. He’s learned discipline and respect. He’s had fun running around the Cotswolds with his little friends and he’s earned more badges than I’d care to remember. I get to sew them on his increasingly theadbare sweater with depressing regularity.

I showed him the pictures of the Biffers’ survivalist weekend, out of context, of course. He’s too young to have his head filled with that sort of irrational hatred. I just downloaded the shots and asked him what he thought. He was confused at first. He didn’t recognise a single scout leader uniform. Then he decided they must be venture scouts. But no – that couldn’t be right either – they were making too many mistakes. Refreshingly for his poor old Mum he also wondered where all the girls had got to. Cubs and Scouts have moved on in the last one hundred years and the sexism of the past century has definitely been consigned to the history books – unless you’re a Biffer, of course.

The smallest member of our household then went on to explain at great length why the fire was wrong, why the tents were facing in the wrong direction, how rubbish the camp site itself was, why he wouldn’t expect these no-hopers to survive a week and how physically unfit they all seemed to his naïve little 10 year old eye.

EBF BF survival rations

He almost wet himself laughing when I informed him that these brave men were going to keep us safe when England is invaded. He took one look at the survival rations, explained how the nutrition balance was all wrong (I’ll take his word for it) and assured me that his Akela would never be so silly as to go camping with so much carbohydrate and so little protein. I’ve no idea if what he said makes nutritional sense because that’s not my strong suit but he seemed very sure of his ground.

I’d trust the word of my honest, respectful and kind-hearted little boy long before I’d rely on the lies of Biffers who really are old enough to know better. Maybe if Golding and Lomax had been Scouts they’d have learned something about integrity. Maybe they’d know how to make a half-decent job of camping out as well.

So that’s settled then. Scouting for boys is great for… well… erm… boys. Grown men playing soldiers – that’s a completely different matter!

Perhaps someone should give their heads a woggle!

 

 

Hissed off! by Snake

EBF snake cropped.pngEBF Admin, ‘Snake’ tells us why he’s so hissed off with the Biffers he’s been talking to both on line and off. Snake is a regular contributor to the EBF Facebook and Twitter platforms but this is his first piece for the blog. I hope it wont be his last. (Marcia)

So as usual I’ve been doing my thing arguing with Biffers in various forums and one thing that has struck me is that for all their talk of equality and gay rights etc. it is very much a club for straight, white males. The KTI set up is certainly designed to attract males and a lot of the “call to arms” posts are designed to play on traditionally masculine themes (won’t you fight for your children, impending civil war and so forth). You also see a lot of jibes levelled at ‘lefties’ that are designed to emasculate and belittle us.

The carrying of various weapons (sticks, hard knuckle gloves etc) suggests an innate lack of confidence in their own abilities, as do the fight clubs. The fight clubs and bully boy routines are what interest me the most as these and the ex army land rovers suggest that they feel emasculated themselves, that they are constantly looking to assert their masculinity by victimising and bullying minorities but end up pushing it almost into parody.

EBF BF Violence Lomax armedThe type of person we see BF attract are normally underachievers, normally unimpressive either physically, academically or both. Their persecuting of a minority makes them feel empowered, Paul himself fancies himself as an alpha male, but falls woefully short of the mark. This sense of seeking masculinity is not unique to Biffers. Many people take up boxing, mma and others in an attempt to test their mettle. I myself have embarked on a variety of traditional ‘manly’ activities.

The big thing here is how BF are utilising this sense of emasculation and search to regain one’s manhood to radicalise their members. One suspects Daesh do exactly the same. It’s easy to do when there is high unemployment. A lot of young men who can’t work for whatever reason take anything they can to feel they’ve regained their manliness and BF offer a very easy solution. Their demos and ‘days of action’ provide an easy out for the lazy and feckless. They don’t require endless hours down the gym or years mastering a skill, all you have to do is turn up, hand out some leaflets, shout a bit and Bob’s your uncle, you’ve done your bit for Paulie’s war effort and made yourself feel more like a man. Except it doesn’t. Because everybody can see you for the lazy, feckless bully you are, so you have to do more.

And so the radicalisation process continues.
