Finsbury Park: The shame of a nation

In the early hours of this morning a 48 year old lone wolf, presumably radicalised over time in the developing hate-filled, anti-Muslim, right wing culture of modern Britain took it upon himself to drive a van into helpless Muslim worshippers in Finsbury Park. One man is dead and 10 more people are injured as a result.

The atmosphere around Finsbury Park Mosque must have been electric last night with emergency vehicles sirens and lights illuminating the cacophonous streets as police and paramedics battled to save lives and restore order. Everywhere else in the land the air was heavy with a different characteristic altogether. The stench of hypocrisy lies heavy over Britain today.

We’ve all seen them – the ‘respectable’,  right wing contacts on social media. Perhaps it’s an old school friend of yours. Maybe it’s a parent or a cousin. Perhaps it’s your brother or your sister. They’re the smug, unthinking, superficial clowns who just love to post memes and forward tweets about those awful Muslims. They bang on endlessly about ‘rapefugees’ or fake, easily debunked ‘news’ from Breitbart  about  ‘creeping Sharia’ and cheerfully declare that refugees should be drowned and all immigrants already here should either be deported or sterilised.  Don’t deny it – we all know who they are.

I wouldn’t normally suggest seeking out these losers, these lonely, embittered bigots whose only claim to fame is their ability to libel and slander an entire group of people. It’s true that they’re usually spectacularly wrong with their implausible predictions that never come true and that can be amusing on occasion. It’s also true that giving them the oxygen of interaction encourages them, as it does with any other mischevious internet troll. But today I think we should all make contact and let them know what we think of the fruits of their labour.

These Islamaphobic bigots are the ones responsible for radicalisation of far right terrorists in UK. By constantly demonising Muslims, refugees, ‘foreigners’ and non-whites they have created a narrative that shames the whole nation. And now, many of these same people are posting memes and tweeting tweets condemning the violence that they themselves have helped to create.

So I say we should contact them en masse. If you know an online bigot who preaches the sort of hate that led to the Finsbury Park attack don’t let them off the hook. Remind them of their onslaught of hatred and the impact they have had upon our nation. Expose their divisive lies and let them know that we understand the blood that is on their hands – blood that they may never manage to wash clean. Let them know that we hold them every bit as responsible for this atrocity as we do the ‘lone wolf’ who, egged on by thousands upon thousands of keyboard warriors like them actually drove the van that ploughed into those poor people.

Let them know that we know them.

ISIS don’t ‘alf get about, don’t they?

We came across this startling piece of news about ISIS killing people in a running gun battle on the streets of Chesterfield, the home of Britain First ‘Armed forces division’ boss, Robin Lomax. WARNING – depending upon your PC’s web browser settings clicking the above lonk may result in lots of pop-up advertising.

Our first thought was to wonder why the brave Biffer army hadn’t seen them off. But then we realised that they may have been distracted doing their bit for our collective safety in nearby Wakefield instead. Go for it fellas!

Or maybe they were off being brave in Bradford.

A message from Moley

Here at EBF we’re dedicated to exposing the nefarious antics of Britain first and the rest of the far right. That has brought us to the attention of some particularly nasty individuals who’ve been trying without success to identify team members, presumably with the intent of visiting us for a violent altercation. That’s just how these people operate.

Fortunately they haven’t managed although they’ve certainly tried. There have even been a few cases of mistaken identity and some innocent people have found themselves under fire from fash in the past. We’re genuinely sorry about that.

Anyway, our mole in the Biffer camp tells us that they’re trying a new tactic. Apparently the Exposing Britain First Facebook page is about to be mass reported in an attempt to get the page removed by Facebook. It’s possible that they’ll manage, if only temporarily but we will be back.

The power of hatred

There really is power in hatred.

Hatred isn’t just a mindset, it’s an emotional response as well. Hatred leads to resentment and anger, both of which have been linked to physical and psychological health problems and even to early death. Perhaps that’s nature’s way of limiting the impact of our species’ most destructive individuals. They die a little sooner than the rest of us.

Hatred doesn’t only have the power to kill the haters though. It has the power to kill the hated too. Haters become so locked in their own sad, hate-filled worldview they come to believe all sorts of atrocities are acceptable.

Take the recent case of the neo-nazi white supremacist who attacked an innocent man with a machete just because of the colour of his skin. And as you read the article pay special attention to the phrase…

“…radicalized on line”

That’s why we work so hard to counter Britain First’s lies.

Because that hatred has power.

Because that hatred kills people.
