It’s a lonely life being a Biffer!

EBF blogger post to Sitwell Arms re BF conference 2015BF Conference 2015 – what a washout!

On November 14th 2015, Britain First held its annual conference. It was an interesting affair, beginning with a bizarre ‘treasure hunt’ to find the venue itself. The Biffers met at a motorway service station where the actual venue was revealed amid a secrecy more reminiscent of Enid Blyton’s ‘Famous Five’ stories than a legitimate political party for grown-ups.

The actual venue was a place called The Sitwell Arms, a nice looking place, popular with fitness enthusiasts and newlyweds. It’s not the sort of establishment we would have expected to host a Nazi conference which makes us wonder whether or not the licensee actually knew what the booking was about.

We have contacted The Sitwell Arms via Facebook to ask them (and to offer to host a statement from them on our blog should they wish to make one). Since being identified as the venue by a Sheffield Anti-fascist group the hotel risks significant loss of trade. If they really didn’t know who they were playing host to, it’s only right that we at EBF try to soften that blow for them.

If they did know they may well have put their licence at risk. If they didn’t (which is entirely likely) Britain First has pulled another ‘fast one’ on some unsuspecting Hotelier and put the unfortunate licensee’s livelihood at risk. Under UK licensing regulations venues aren’t supposed to host racist events or encourage antisocial behaviours. Biffers are renowned for inciting terrorism and radicalising people against non-whites and Muslims so this conference would certainly fit the criteria.

We originally thought that only 30-35 Nazis met there last weekend to ratify the Britain First policies for the forthcoming year. Having reviewed more pics as BF posted them we’ve revised that figure to a massive 39 fasicsts (including the photographer). That was all they could muster. Most British people understand that our ancestors were right to oppose Nazism during the Second World War. They understand the huge sacrifice made by people of many colours, creeds and nationalities and they don’t want anything to do with Britain First’s attempts to rekindle Hitler’s abusive dream.

Unfortunately however, there are a few malcontents who continue to look up to Uncle Adolf. They pretend otherwise but then we see policies like those presented to the 39 sad dweebs at the Biffers’ annual conference and the illusion is shattered beyond repair.

These people are Nazis – plain and simple.

It’s not surprising that they had such a poor turnout. For all their deceptive clickbait campaigns and bought Facebook likes Britain First has never been particularly popular in the real world. What was surprising was the apparent silence of the Fuhrer, Paul (Folding) Golding. The Biffers co-founder and leader has yet to give a speech according to the published material currently being churned out by Britain First’s media machine.

That might be a ploy to get people like us to comment on Paul’s silence so that we’ll look silly when eventually the Biffers post evidence that he really had spoken all along. If so it’d be a particularly immature tactic on their part that can only demonstrate how little legitimacy they have. Realistically you’d have thought a ‘registered political party’ with aspirations to lead a fourth Reich would have more to crow about than a cheap ‘pull the Fuhrer out of the hat’ conjuring trick. Only time will tell.

For now we need to assume that Fuhrer Paulie really didn’t speak on Saturday. And that leads us to yet another question. Why not?

EBF BF Jayda Fransen elected deputy Fuhrer 3 years conference November 14th 2015Our Mole in the Biffer camp has long been reporting that Biffer central is becoming increasingly unsatisfied with Golding’s stewardship. Numbers are dwindling and it’s costing them a fortune (most of the donations they receive) to keep up appearances buying Facebook likes from overseas click farms. His inadequate oratory and lack of political acumen mean that he has increasingly been seen as a liability. Whether he actually gave a speech at the 2015 conference or not doesn’t change the fact that his premiership is at risk. Word has it that Deputy Fuhrer, Fransen is set to take over when Paulie is ousted from office (and quite possibly expelled from the party) in May or June 2016.

This may explain the 3 year vote of confidence that saw Jayda confirmed as Deputy until 2018. That won’t prevent her from taking over the leadership in 2016. It just makes it automatic once Paul is expelled. The Biffers are stitching him up because he’s just not profitable enough.

In place of Fuhrer Paul we saw a rare appearance by co-founder and Britain First financer, ‘Jolly Jim’ Dowson. He was supposed to have left Britain First at around the time he first got into hot water over the infamous Northern Ireland Flag Protests. He’s no stranger to political conflict.

Jolly Jim treated the assembled throng to what can only be described as a religious sermon where he misappropriated a verse from the Holy Bible to make the outrageous claim that Christianity is all about the destruction of non-Christians. It’s hard to tell how the congregation of Nazi cockwombles received this message from the would-be Rev. Dowson but we imagine it wasn’t too convincing, even for Biffers. We don’t imagine many British Nazis are particularly interested in Christian doctrine anyway. It’s a good clip to stick on Facebook though. That way BF’s American donors, the paranoid, Republican, Christian right wingers might cough up a few more fascist dollars for the Biffers’ beleaguered bank balance.

EBF BF Dowson sermon terrorism incitement conference November 14th 2015What we can glean from this disgraceful misappropriation of Holy Scripture is the undeniable fact that Britain First uses religion to radicalise and incite both hatred and violence. They regularly criticise ISIS for using the Quran to radicalise Muslims and yet here they are using the Bible to do exactly the same thing. It really is difficult to see how Britain First and ISIS differ.

EBF BF Dowson Holy War crusade quoteThey both pretend to speak for a major religion.
They both misrepresent and undermine the religion they claim to represent.
They are both despised by the vast majority of the faithful.
They both want to incite violence and start a ‘Holy war’ on the streets of Europe.

It’s easy to infer the desire to start a Holy War from Britain First’s behaviours but actually we don’t need to. Dowson made that point very clear a couple of years ago when speaking with Channel 4 Television. Jolly Jim genuinely seems to believe that violent uprising against Islam, extermination of the faithful, peaceful Muslims in our midst would be a good thing. This is precisely the same attitude that Hitler had against Europe’s Jews. It’s Nazism – pure and simple. And it’s dangerous.

That’s why we take heart in the knowledge that less than 40 people turned up for the conference. Those that did were treated to a tacky, plastic ‘medal’ that looks uncannily similair to the cheap keyrings that Britain first has been unable to sell. We bet those Nazi activists felt really valued as Fuhrer-in-waiting Fransen presented them in front of the half empty function room. Such is the fate of Britain’s fascist minority. Sleazy ceremonies in secret locations with Christmas-cracker style medals complementing extremist rhetoric from religiose fanatics.

Britain First ignores the neonazi Swedish swordsman

This week we heard the terrible news that a vicious, unprovoked sword attack on a school in Trollhattan, Sweden had left two people dead and three more seriously injured. When the story broke little was known about the identity or the motives of the killer – simply that a maniac had entered the school and attacked both pupils and teachers, apparently indiscriminately.

Britain First, always on the lookout for a progaganda coup, responded quickly. And it didn’t take long before their obedient supporters began to take the bait. Dowson, Fransen and Golding have already pre-programmed the Biffers to assume every act of violence must be the fault of Muslim aggression. Britain First doesn’t even need to say it any more – just give the context of aggression and let their well-trained indoctrinated flock make the link for them.

The post was quickly removed from the Britain First Knight’s Templar International Facebook page once the reality became clear. Unsurprisingly enough, there has been no subsequent mention of it on any of the other Biffer pages so far as we can tell either. There are many pages under Biffer control, pages where they could have reported the truth, had they wanted to, including KTI (where the above meme first appeared).

EBF BF FB feeder pages meme

Britain First and KTI both deny that there is any connection between them but we know better than to believe that. The rank and file Biffer foot-soldiers may be too stupid to notice all the indoctrination and financial fleecing but the rest of us see it very clearly indeed.

far right sweden school sword killer Anton Lundin PetterssonBut let’s get back to the Swedish tragedy – the one that all the Biffer pages have become so very silent about.

Anton Lundin Pettersson, a 21 year old Swedish loner with no current or previous connection to Kronan school. He was a far right, neo-nazi who had fallen for the anti-immigrant, anti-Islam rhetoric of the ‘Sweden Democrats’, an extreme right wing political party. Like so many other far right groups, the Sweden Democrats use the same tactics of radicalising their followers on line and then sitting back whilst the sheep they have groomed go off and commit atrocities. So many of these attacks involve far right loners who are vulnerable targets for the likes of the Sweden Democrats and Britain First.

“He marches through the corridor with his weapons – a large sword and a large, sharp knife. He chose his victims. Those with dark-skin were attacked. He met with lighter-skinned people who were not attacked,” police investigator Thord Heraldsson told Aftonbladet.

Their gullible followers are like ticking time bombs with little more than a circumstantial link to implicate the neo-Nazis who primed them to explode.

Their own predictable destruction (Pettersson himself was shot dead at the scene by armed police) makes it even more difficult to link the crime to its true instigators, the extremist far right propagandists who convince them about a war against ordinary Muslims, refugees and immigrants that doesn’t really exist.

BF implant bulletsPettersson left a note (now treated as a suicide note) in which he explained his motives. According to the Swedish police he had targeted those whom he considered to be ‘foreigners’ and objected to Sweden’s policy of accommodating refugees. His targets seem to have been chosen by skin colour. He had contact with several white-skinned pupils and staff at the school whom he left alone. He even paused for photographs with white-skinned pupils who thought his ridiculous costume, reminiscent of a WW2 German army uniform was some sort of Halloween stunt.

KTI BF EBF Texas militiaThe incident is just one more in a series of hate crimes that testify to the impact of online radicalisation by extremist right wing groups. Groups like Britain First whose behaviour (in common with other groups who encourage terrorism from the safety of their computer keyboards) has become increasingly extremist, inciting more and more violent behaviour over the last year.

But it doesn’t stop there. Over in the US, Britain First is currently working on a new type of incitement. ‘Knights Templar International Texas’, an offshoot of Knights Templar International which is itself an offshoot of Britain First (all of these are controlled by Golding and Dowson) is actually forming an armed militia to prosecute Holy War. BF’s British contingent is largely comprised of namby-pamby keyboard warriors but the Americans have a long-standing and very different relationship with gun-related crime. Texas, one of the American far right’s traditional strongholds, is fertile ground from which to develop a new anti-Muslim militia. Especially when the group floods their Facebook pages with deliberately fictional horror stories and out of context photographs in propaganda like this.

When we see the anti-Muslim, anti-refugee agenda that characterises both BF and KTI, together with the attempt to start real, on the ground ‘units’ of armed extremists it isn’t difficult to predict where all this is heading.

It’s easy to pretend that the awful tragedy of Kronan School was just an isolated incident. But we think there’s much more to it. We think that Anton Lundin Pettersson was radicalised on line by extremist neo-Nazis. We think that makes this gullible young man just as much a victim as those he slaughtered in that Swedish school.

We think that Britain First and its offshoots are engaged in the same basic activity – they radicalise gullible people by convincing them that a war is going on where no such conflict actually exists. Of course, as much as anything they do this for money. They extort donations under false pretences, they divert money from legitimate charities and they sell exorbitantly priced merchandise (ironically, made in foreign sweatshops) but their pathological hatred for non-whites is real too. Britain First knows that their livelihood comes at the expense of victims such as those in Trollhattan but so long as the money keeps rolling in they really don’t care.

The longer these people are allowed to continue spreading their hatred the closer this country will come to the next attack. We’ve already seen some appalling crimes, not least the vicious murder of an elderly Muslim man in Rotherham – an innocent local elder beaten to death by three young neo-Nazis whilst on his way to the Mosque for prayers.

How long will the UK shrug off these atrocities, be they domestic or foreign before we proscribe Britain First and the rest of their ilk?

We say – Proscribe Britain First now! Prosecute the extremist ring-leaders who are the cause of so much misery and destruction. Prevent further betrayal and radicalisation of gullible British citizens just to fill Dowson, Fransen and Golding’s pockets with the next 30 pieces of silver.
