Britain First: The ‘anti-Christian’ Christians

Biffers like Paul Golding and Jayda “Dutchy” Fransen love to bang on about their Christian faith. Their claim that this is a Christian nation complete with Christian values may be laughably hollow but its impact is much more substantial.

The more Britain First’s Biffers squeal about their Christianity the more Christianity itself is associated with their vile, divisive rhetoric. The more Christianity suffers as a direct result of their endless claims to religious fidelity.

Fuhrer Golding would like you to believe that the Christian faith is under attack in this country. He’d like you to believe that the only religious group automatically to hold legislative authority in the House of Lords is powerless in UK. He’d like you to believe that the largest religious demographic in Britain is a persecuted minority. And he’d like you to believe that he represents rank and file Christians across the nation.

BF EBF proverbs Christian hypocrisy liesVery few people are stupid enough to believe this rubbish, of course. Christianity is no more a minority activity in UK than are tea drinking or fish and chip suppers.

The British people are far more insightful about their national religion than Golding and Fransen give them credit for:

When Deputy Fuhrer Fransen advocates persecution of religious minorities she contradicts the teachings of Christ (1 Timothy 1:15);

When Golding advocates refusing to help those in need because of their skin colour or ethnicity he ignores the lessons of many of the New Testaments most famous parables (luke 10:25-37);

When Britain First talks about their much longed-for ‘holy war’ on UK streets they oppose the basic tenets of the famous Sermon on the mount;

When Biffers pretend to be Christian they both offend and discredit Christians across the nation.

The fact is that the Biffers are just bigots who distort scripture for their own ends. They aren’t Christians – but they use Christianity to justify their own extremism. They misrepresent the Bible to support their hatred just as the Muslim extremists they rail against misrepresent Islam.

Britain First is a terrorist organisation justifying itself to itself by hijacking the peaceful religion of millions. And Christianity itself is suffering as a result. If Golding and co continue to misuse the Christian faith as they are perhaps they’ll get their wish. Perhaps Christians really will come to be hated as their image is tarnished by these extremist Biffers who hide their wickedness behind an image of the Son of God.

Perhaps Britain First will damage Christianity’s reputation just as ISIS has damaged Islam’s. How ironic!

Racist and religiously motivated hate crime soars

It’s no great surprise that the UK is becoming more violent and aggressive toward ethnic minorities. There’s a rising tide of hatred, a fire fuelled by far right organisations like Britain First that blames immigrants, ethnic minorities and all non-Christians for the problems of UK.

EBF BF ban Islam ECHR blame Muslims FranceBritain First revels in this racist foam fest. It’s their bread and butter. The more fear and hatred they can create the more money they can con from their misguided, paranoid followers. So they spend their time creating posts that demonise ‘the other’. They radicalise their followers, turning them into violent and prejudiced foot-soldiers in a domestic, religious war that never really existed.

It’s true, of course, that Muslim extremists exist. It’s also true that a small number of these misguided individuals hail from the UK. But it’s not true that all British Muslims are secretly plotting to overthrow our nation and its laws. Nor is it true that people with dark skins are inferior or antisocial.

Recent hate crime figures suggest that the opposite is true. The greatest danger facing our society comes not from Muslims or brown people – it comes from the increasingly radicalised white, Christian population. This is the demographic that Britain First appeals to and it seems that, toothless though the organisation itself is, the Biffers are making an impact. It’s hard  to believe but these anti-Islamic comments from Biffers on Facebook match perfectly the anti-Semitic propaganda of mid twentieth century Nazi Germany.

EBF BF Nazi dehumanisation

Their hate-filled propaganda is destroying our society. Their lies are turning our once safe nation into a cess pit of intolerance and hostility. Their selfish quest for money depends entirely upon the fear and misery they create for so many of our fellow citizens.

There is a race related issue to attend to in the UK. There is a very real problem and it’s important that citizens of all creeds and colours are able to identify its source. The problem is not Islam. Nor is it immigration or ethnicity. The problem is far right neo-Nazi ideology, complete with racist overtones and violent religious intolerance.

A large part of the problem is Britain First!

Biffers back the wrong horse again!

Britain First have made a really big deal out of this fiasco. Not that they particularly cared about the case itself – just the propaganda opportunity to demonise another innocent Muslim. They even got the details wrong, describing Victoria Wasteney as a nurse (she’s an occupational therapist) & falsely reporting that she’d been sacked. Since they’re using the case to fundraise we might expect them to get at least the basics right.

BF campaign Christian nurse

The truth is that this woman was disciplined for bullying her staff and for pushing her religious beliefs on to vulnerable mentally ill patients. Both of these things are serious issues and she deserved to be disciplined. The only real question is why the trust she worked for tried so hard to accommodate her unprofessional behaviour before eventually taking disciplinary action.

Britain First would like you to believe that this is an example of oppression perpetrated by Muslims with a beef against Christians. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Don’t just take our word for it. You can read the full record of the proceedings here.

Don’t believe the biffers!

Short memories and divided loyalties

Recently we learned about Deputy Fuhrer Jayda’s attitude to paedophiles like Oberstfuhrer John Broomfield. Today we examine her confused attitude to religion and religious persecution.

Jayda’s a Roman Catholic, or so she claims. Roman Catholics believe in high mass, regular confession of sins, priestly absolution and the need for a clerical class to act as intermediary between man and God. These are some of the many things that Martin Luther objected to (protested about) when he began the protestant movement by nailing a piece of paper to the door of Reims cathedral. The subsequent conflict raged for centuries between Catholics and Protestants and still continues today, especially in Ireland where Jayda’s own organisation is very definitely on the side of the Protestants.

These people consider the Pope (who according to Jayda’s religion is the ‘vicar of Christ’ & ‘God’s earthly spokesman’) to be the antichrist, even Satan himself. These are the people who in bygone years accused Roman Catholics of child abuse, of worshipping false idols and who spread fears of Catholics ‘taking over the world’ due to their aggressive evangelism and higher than average birth rate.

Such fears, slights and slanders were wrong, as Deputy Fuhrer “Dutchy” Fransen must know only too well. She must be very well aware of the appalling treatment British Catholics received as a result of these lies too. And as a good Roman Catholic she cannot fail to have heard the arguments against persecution and religious intolerance.

bf-jayda-quotes

And yet Fraulein Fransen seems determined to commit the same slanders and encourage the same atrocities against British Muslims. Far from learning the lesson of history she seems determined to repeat the same mistake in our own time.

It seems unthinkable that a Roman Catholic with all that history behind her could be party to such intolerance and malice. Unless of course Deputy Fuhrer Fransen really doesn’t have a clue what she’s talking about.

Who supports Exposing Britain First?

EBF multiculturalWe are often told that we are all ‘unwashed Lefteyes’ with mutlicoloured hair. We are ‘Communists’, we are ‘traitors’ we are ‘paedos’ and ‘terrorist sympathisers’ – among other things. Well, we’re not. I’ve been supporting EBF since the group first started out and I have made many friends there – and they are all different.

Some ARE ‘lefteyes’, no doubt about it – unwashed or not, I don’t know, I haven’t met them all.

One is a Communist, a nice, working class Communist who just wants this weird thing called ‘equality’ for everyone. You could definitely count him as a ‘Lefteye’ I think it’s safe to say.

One EBF friend does have multicoloured hair, if you count the many shades of Henna hair products, pretty much like the ones Jayda Fransen seems to use.   ALL of them are people who love their country. Not traitors.  They love the diverse communities they live in, they love all the influences our immigrants have had on the country, from Fish n Chips to Ice Cream, from Tikka Masala, to tea. They appreciate the contribution immigrants have made here and they like the fact that we can offer a safe haven for asylum seekers – albeit not as much as we could. None of them are ‘paedos’. All my friends are rightly disgusted by any such offence and have every sympathy with victims. All my friends think that more needs to be done to bring offenders to justice and to support victims; all of them want no more cover ups. No-one makes any distinction between Muslim offenders or non-Muslim offenders – and we all know that Britain First really mean ‘brown skinned’ when they say Muslim. The offence is equally abhorrent whoever commits it.

Nor are we terrorist sympathisers.  Terrorism, coming from any quarter is just awful, the suffering and death too awful for words. We all believe that ISIS needs to be dealt with but none of us have the answers. Not for lack of talking about it, not for not wishing to know, but because its’ complicated. There is no panacea and we all believe that there are many variables that go towards radicalising people, people from all backgrounds, not just Muslims.

BF compassion EBFMany of us think that Britain First are contributing to the radicalisation process in two ways. They are alienating Muslims here, marginalising them and making some defensive about their religion, potentially pushing them towards the waiting arms of those few who would turn them. Britain First are also radicalising non-Muslims by creating fear and hatred and supporting comments about attacks on Mosques. Most of all this happy band are all different. We are men and women, Muslims and Jews and Christians and atheists and Labour party members and Conservatives and older people and young people and bus drivers and teachers and shop workers and office workers and factory floor workers and nurses and black and brown and white and gay and straight and pagan and dinner ladies and fire station personnel and a cycle shop owner and a greengrocer and a councillor – so many ordinary people. Just ordinary people.

Some have been to a march or two, like the anti Pegida march in Newcastle where 1,500 people went and peacefully said they did not want Pegida in Newcastle, some went to London for the March 21st march against racism, many have not been on a march in their life.  We lie all over the country, and I mean ALL over the country – we WILL get that get together organised ONE day. But we are just ordinary people, and we oppose Britain First.

And opposing Britain First doesn’t mean we give a green light to paedophiles or terrorists and it doesn’t make us traitors.

Simples.

Biffers’ day out in Dudley

How do you feel about democracy?

What about self-determination?

What’s your view on local people having control over local decisions?

BF EBF Burn dudley mosqueThis Saturday Britain First will be trampling over all the above principles. They’ll be invading the West Midlands town of Dudley in protest at the democratic, self-determination of Dudley’s people. They’ll be shipping in as many outsiders as they can muster to protest in the town because the locals made a decision that Paul Golding happens to disagree with.

Like their political inspiration, UKIP, Britain First talks a lot about local decision-making, about democracy and about self-determination. But only when the decision-makers agree with them. Any council that disagrees with Britain First can expect busloads of outsiders to descend upon their town to protest about stuff that really isn’t any of their business. Individuals who oppose either Britain First or UKIP can expect angry biffers to doorstep them in an effort to curtail their freedom of speech.

BF Bullying meme EBFThat’s not democracy. That’s fascism. That’s the politics of hatred and the bully boy tactics of Hitler’s SA.

We can only imagine what they’d do if they ever got any actual power.

If you’re unfortunate enough to be in Dudley this weekend be warned that the Nazis are coming to town and experience shows us that when that happens it’s rarely pretty. If Britain First’s ‘pre demo’ propaganda is to be believed they’ll be out in force. The beefers claim around 2,000 fascists will be swarming into Dudley and even allowing for their usual exaggeration West Midlanders can probably expect at least a couple of hundred.

We would never advocate anyone putting themselves at risk – these people can be dangerous (especially in a crowd) but if you are planning on opposing Britain First on Saturday you might find this leaflet useful. Feel free to print off your own copies for distribution on the day.

No pasaran!

Nationalist or patriot?

Britain First likes to pretend that anyone who doesn’t agree with them hates Britain. But they’re wrong.

Here at Exposing Britain First we absolutely value our society. We enjoy living in this wonderful, tolerant, colour-blind society. Indeed we’re immensely proud of Britain, its fair-mindedness and its commitment to equality. We don’t hate this country – we love it!

BF EBF Burn dudley mosque

The things we really object to are nationalism, racism and fascism. Many of us are white but we don’t think that makes us special or superior. Many of us are Christian but we don’t think that makes us more deserving than anyone else. Many of us can trace our heritage back for centuries but that doesn’t give us any special claim over others. Nothing gives any of us the right to use violence to get our own way.

Nationalism, religious discrimination and racism make no sense. They are broad assumptions based upon the desire to feel superior but with absolutely no evidence to back them up.

Nationalists seem to think they have superior rights simply because they happen to be born in a particular place. But they’re wrong. We are all humans and we all deserve equal treatment regardless of birthplace, religion or skin colour.

Great Britain is one of Europe’s most tolerant and fair-minded societies. True patriots value those principles of liberty and equality and seek to protect them from the abuses of nationalism. Exposing Britain First is a tolerant, patriotic movement commited to maintaining the fair-mindedness of the UK and its people (wherever they may be from).

Now that really is something to be proud of!
