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?

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.

View from a barstool 28 by Landlord

Beer 2Another lovely week in publand, topped off by an incredibly enjoyable weekend of watching the biffers (and other fash) getting humiliated all over social media. Beers were flowing on Saturday night as the Cricket players looked to win another test match with a big score by Moeen Ali (that’ll confuse the biffers) who kissed the 3 lions as he completed a well earned Century. And also my football team has been taken over by a man who is even richer than Roman Abramovich.

So the biffers… 2 leafleting sessions in Leicester, 2 times kicked out by the police after being countered by Anti Fascists. Added to this, the wonderful news that Goldibollocks got arrested for breaching his bail conditions. No doubt there’ll be a spin on their next video, and how he made the police look like idiots, the 20 unwashed scummy lefteyes (which looked a lot more like 100 or so) were intimidated by him. And the democratically elected mayor of Leicester is an appeaser when he apparently told Goldibollocks and his Security brigade to fuck off.

Well Goldibollocks, when will you learn that everyone is not supporting you, towns don’t want you and you just look as bigger cockwomble than we knew you were? You have minimal support despite your Facebook likes and the good people of this beautiful. diverse. multicultural country have had enough of your buffoonery.

In York, the lovely fellows of National Action turned up, all 15 of them only to be met by Antifa ensuring that their sick message didn’t get spread. These are the cuntwafflers who are under investigation by the German Police for filming themselves at Buchenwald concentration camp giving a Nazi salute. I suppose this is the state of some of our youth today.

Pie and Mash turned up in Dover, all 20 of them, tried to have a demo and again were met by Kent Antifa. Although they took a couple of photo’s which looked like they were being kettled by the police their 5w appears now to mean ‘No One wants you here’.

One thing I have noticed, and it appears so have you guys, is the absence of Screechy the past two weeks. Much conjecture in the office over this and we have had several ideas. I’m sure you have your own thoughts but here are ours:

a) she’s given it all up and entered a nunnery. As such a devout woman she would be welcomed with open arms;
b) she met up with the guy she was flirting with at the ELM a few weeks ago and has converted to Islam;
c) although she gives the bluster and plays the hard girl she’s shit scared of breaking her bail conditions;
d) she’s busy moving home as we all know she has to move every 6 months for security reasons;
e) she’s had enough of being humiliated and is plotting a Screechy takeover with the rest of the high command;
f) she’s taken up Uncle Jim’s invitation and has become the first to become an immigrant in the new far right enclave;
g) she’s gone to rehab.

Whatever it is it does seem strange the poster girl of the far right is absent from the biffers’ latest shennanigans.

Finally, the biffers have issued the fascist equivelant of a fatwa against the democratically elected mayors of various cities, and MP’s who happen to be Muslims. We couldn’t quite believe this to be true in the office but after a while it became apparent that it was. Now hopefully the police can start taking action. If Anjem Choudry is under house arrest for extremism then surely this is the same. It is a direct threat to elected officials of this country and therefore must be very close to terrorism. Even a Tory MP has said that this is an example of the new Home Office edict on extremism.

So thats it. Keep an eye out on the page for where the cockwombles are going to be next week, as soon as we know it will be published. I’m sure wherever it is the people of this country will be out telling them they aren’t welcome.

Now it’s time to clean the BBQ for round 2. Hope you have a great week.

Cheers.

Not quite Dick Whittington but Golding does have a cat

We have to admit we didn’t think they’d get this far. Fuhrer Golding and his financier, Jim Dowson really have managed to wrangle some more financial backing out of their ‘anonymous’ donors. Not only that, it didn’t all go on acquiring pies for Lewis and kebabs for Paulie. Consequently Der Fuhrer really has got himself registered as a candidate for the London elections.

Not that he stands much of a chance. His previous ‘political’ activity as a BNP local councillor (how telling is that?) left an awful lot to be desired. The residents of Swanley were certainly less than impressed.

EBF BF Londons last stand mayor election May 5th

And yet here he is listed as a candidate for one of the most significant elected offices in the country, following his vast experience of a single, insignificant term on a small local council.

To stand such an obvious no-hoper in such an important election shows a real contempt for the office of Mayor and for the people of London who undoubtedly deserve someone much more competent and experienced than Golding. But that’s not the half of it. Have a look at the list of candidates Britain First is standing for the London Assembly. What sort of political party is so desperate for credible (ahem) members that they need to draft in the leader’s extended family to make up the numbers?

Biffers London montageNepotism rules in fascist political hierarchies and Britain First certainly fit the fascist bill with their incessant nationalism (even making ‘Putting British people first’ their election slogan) and utter contempt for everyone, British or not who isn’t both white and politically Far-right. They’d even go as far as to hang anyone who disagrees with them given the chance to do so. That’s probably why they couldn’t get any serious politicians to stand for them and had to rely on Paulie’s relatives instead.

According to Brian Furth Golding’s household pets were disqualified on the grounds that they’re household pets (shame)

BF EBF london assembly candidates 2016 Golding pets fluffy river disqualified

Actually that’s just as well since Golding’s cat, Fluffy is thinking of turning to Islam. Can you imagine the furore that would create in the Biffer camp?

EBF cat Catijah Muslim convert.jpg

Of course none of these no-hopers have any chance of being elected to the London Assembly and Golding’s money-men will just have to cut their losses as the exchequer accepts their candidates’ lost deposits due to insufficient support. That’s hardly surprising given that this is Folding Golding’s idea of a serious electioneering statement…

“Londoners should vote for me and Britain First because this is London’s last stand. We’re now a minority in our own city because of mass immigration. Islamic extremism is running rampant in the streets of London and we are the only political party that’s stood up against Islamic extremism.”

He’s not exactly helping the fascist cause with a multicultural electorate who become more and more alienated from the Biffers every time Der Fuhrer opens his mouth. Londoners understand multi-culturalism and its benefits far more accurately than Golding and Fransen ever will. They also understand how tragic it is when minorities are abused, something both Folding & Dutchy should know only too well given their family histories. Dutchy is the product of Dutch and Jewish immigrants whilst Golding’s family heritage is the travelling community (ironically both Jews and travellers are popular targets of hatred and discrimination from rank and file Biffers who presumably didn’t get the memo).

Pretty much everybody else does understand the evils of racial and religious hatred though which is why displays of support for diversity are always much better attended than the Biffers’ mean-spirited displays of bigotry.

All the Biffers ever do in the capital is turn up and cause trouble. Whether they’re baiting Muslims in their Mosques or insulting ethnic Londoners with their ‘(un)Christian patrols’, Golding and his gang of thugs make a nuisance of themselves wherever they go. Theirs would not be a harmonious capital – it would be a city divided against itself or at best, disrupted by the unfair policies of an unpopular regime.

For all these reasons we know that the people of London will make sure that Der Fuhrer, Dutchy Fransen and their assorted friends and relatives suffer a humiliating defeat this May. After all – what respectable Western city would elect anyone whose policies so clearly reflect their ideological, Nazi heritage?

Biffers with banners are a right bloody nuisance

If ever we needed proof that the Biffers read our blog this is it. Recently we published a piece about Fransen’s cold feet and how Moley had revealed her lack of confidence was putting her pending Fuhrership at risk. Today she seems to have regained her courage and, significantly without Paulie.

In a surprise move she was part of a brace of Biffers who descended on Whitechapel to protest outside the local mosque. Quite why they chose Whitechapel is a little mysterious. It’s hardly a massive structure and the area isn’t known for its racial tensions. Admittedly it has some history but this is hardly Jack the Ripper territory any more.

http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/far-right-britain-first-protesters-stage-hapless-protest-in-the-rain-outside-east-london-mosque-a3192786.html

Apparently the Biffers stayed outside the mosque, blocking its entrance with their ridiculous banner for a full 20 minutes today before buggering off back into the sewer. As usual they remained just long enough to get some publicity shots and pretend they were actually doing something useful. In reality the whole thing was just another photo opportunity for Frau Fransen. It’s amazing that anyone still falls for this rubbish but somebody must or they wouldn’t keep doing it.

BF Whitechapel mosque 1st march 2016 Fransen.png
This comes hot on the heels of an IBTimes news article that looks for the most part like a Fransen press release, bigging up the Biffers and trying desperately to sanitise their thugishness. The article did make it very clear that BF don’t just go after extremists but all Muslims.

BF Luton webcam backfire ibtimes article.png

That’s strange. They told the BBC a very different story – not that anyone actually believed them.

The truth is that these people demonise all Muslims because like all neo-nazi groups they need someone to scapegoat. It didn’t need to be Muslims, it could’ve been any minority, but Muslims were topical so they took the fall.

And having chosen Muslims the Biffers really are going for it. But they’re getting more and more desperate. Police forces across the country are making it clear that they’ve had enough. The courts have stopped giving them friendly slaps on the wrist and are very clearly gearing up to hit them hard and their ground support is fading away much more rapidly than it came. That’s why they’ve gone back to direct action at Mosques – a tactic they declared didn’t work less than 12 months ago. They need the attention. Unfortunately for them though, most people stopped caring about their displays of desperation long ago.
Three lonely Biffers, all of whom are familiar faces from demos across the UK reveal a very depressing picture for Britain First. They may be able to buy likes and even comments from overseas. They might do OK with clickbait memes of sick puppies and cute kittens but Facebook isn’t the real world. If they can’t convert their army of keyboard warriors into actual support they lose. And they can’t. So they’ve lost.

We don’t know if this renewed show of bravado will get Dutchy restored in Dowson’s good books. We don’t know if she’ll inherit the Biffer crown this summer – she may have shot herself in the foot already with her recent show of nerves. We do know that whoever sails the Bad Ship Britain First into the sunset half of 2016 will be captain of a near-empty and very leaky vessel. It’s already running with a skeleton crew, and the few passengers that remain seem to be firmly locked in their ‘keyboard’ cabins.

The Biffers are doomed, and those heavy fleeces will make very poor life jackets

Frightening the fash

They’ll tell you they go where they want.
They’ll tell you they’ll never surrender.
They’ll tell you they’re not scared.
They’ll tell you they’re popular.
They’ll tell you all sorts of silly things but the truth is embarrassingly different.

Today saw the culmination of literally months of hard work and undercover ‘espionage’ by British fascists trying to fool Antifa about their whereabouts.

EDL Liverpool 2016 Paul Locke smug bravado

It was a strategy with only limited success. On the one hand they managed to fool several of their own number who turned up at the wrong venues in pathetically small numbers…

They went to Newcastle

NEI Newcastle February 27th 2016

They went to Manchester…

EDL Manchester February 27th 2016

They went to Walsall…

EDL Walsall February 27th 2016 Antifa

All this misdirection backfired on the fash who might have managed to double their turnout to something approaching 150 if they’d been more honest. The problem with paranoid groups like these is that they can’t even trust their own members enough to tell them the truth. The result was obvious.

Fortunately for them the Antifa information was more accurate and so the opposing forces (that the fascists were so unafraid of) turned up at the right place, after all. Once again the courageous patryoots were surrounded and terrified in Liverpool.

EDL Liverpool February 28th 2016

These brave fascists who go where they want (as long as nobody minds) were thoroughly terrified by the Antifa, who apparently don’t scare them a bit. They stayed safely behind police lines whilst the opposing numbers grew until several hundred Antifa made it clear just what they thought of them.

Alan Weston NWI Liverpool Echo riot police protection February 27th 2016

Their cowardly cowering surely didn’t impress the handful of Polish Nazis who had made the trip in solidarity with their British counterparts. Apparently the spirit of solidarity doesn’t stretch both ways as the fine, brave British boys left their Polish mates to get a really good kicking from Antifa. The cream of English white trash were too busy hiding behind Liverpool’s genuinely brave police to offer their international comrades any assistance. NFSE, eh? We think not!

Alan Weston EDL Liverpool police February 2016 Liverpool Echo

Where were the Biffers whilst all this was going on? You may well ask. They were in several places.

Their illustrious leaders began the afternoon in Bromley police station where they were required to answer bail. Of course, they’d much rather have been in Luton but the law is the law and they’re getting more and more frightened of breaking it. So much for their oft-asserted disregard for the corrupt rules of an Islamist British establishment!

golding fransen webcam luton remote demo

Then they moved to an undisclosed location (not too far away actually) to direct proceedings in Luton where the rest of their ‘band of brothers’ were causing trouble out of uniform. They’re scared of breaking the law too.

They might not have been all that scared though. Apparently Pieman Lewis has been arrested for assaulting a woman. The news of his arrest is still unconfirmed and it may not be true but it’s plausible enough.

He has a history there, as do all the Biffers. They’re much more likely to have a go at women than men. It was Lewis, after all who bravely intimidated a tiny, middle-aged anti UKIP activist in Margate last year. It was Lewis who thought nothing of attacking a group of mainly female performance artists in London and it was Lewis who bravely surrendered the original Britain First banner to male Antifa in Trafalgar Square. These brave white folks really are impressive, aren’t they?

EBF BF Law abiding Biffers political uniform Luton Smurf Bail Fransen Golding.jpgThe really interesting thing about the Biffers in Luton today is the lack of political uniform though (unless you count a Smurf costume as ‘uniform’). The transparency is obvious to everyone except the Biffers themselves who still seem to think this sad handful of ‘paytrioots’, now stripped of even their cherished uniforms are actually doing something constructive. In reality they’re just as scared as the rest of Britain’s racist, fascist groups.

Bloody entertaining though!

All ship shape and Bristol fashion

EBF BUF Bristol 12 March 2016The New British Union of Fascists, a tiny bunch of wannabe Black-shirts with an ‘action-man style’ uniform fetish are making a bid for big-boy status. Like brave little soldiers trying not to cry on the way to the dentist these Dad’s army refugees are soon to put their collective heads straight into the lion’s mouth. They’re off to Bristol!

In some towns the fash can muster a small amount of local support. Most are indifferent to them, seeing them only as an inconvenient obstruction to be avoided whenever possible. But some…

Towns like Bristol have a long history of running the far right out of town. They’ve seen neo-nazis of various stripes from the BNP and NF to the EDL and countless other sad groups of fash literally run in terror from Bristol’s #Antifa. It’s such a well-established tradition that Bristol parents are developing a fash-themed version of ‘Whack-a-mole’ to introduce their children to the habit.

This is the place where a miniscule group of uniformed, beer-gutted, middle-aged men (who are definitely past their prime) plan to prove how hard they are. For some unfathomable reason their Fuhrer, Gary “Blakey” Raikes thinks Bristol is the place to be. We think he might not have though this through.

What could possibly go 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
