Inside the mind of a Biffer

A regular topic in the EBF office is motivation. What drives the Biffers to be so hateful? How can otherwise ordinary people embrace such malice and wish so much harm on their fellow humans?

Over the last few days I’ve made it my mission to try to answer this question, not for every Biffer but at least for some. It isn’t always easy to trawl through the comments on the Britain First Facebook page but it seemed to be a reasonable place to find the answer to my question. What did the Biffers themselves say about their concerns and how do these comments fit together to produce the hatred and cruelty they advocate?

Taking a methodical, step by step perspective was quite revealing and whilst not all that surprising did provide some insight into the way that Britain First manipulates ordinary people, just as their German forerunners did almost a century earlier.

‘Our’ people

The first thing Britain First does is create a sense of identity. Biffers need to be brought to identify with the group of ‘our people’. So Britain First regularly produces memes on social media to help them develop this sense of identity. The Biffer ‘in group’ is made up of white Brits, ex-pats and Christians. Out-groups include Muslims (of course), non-whites and immigrants (unless they come from America or Australia).

Colour

The idea of ‘white flight’ and ‘white genocide’ is a recurring theme in the identification process.

Regular appeals to increase white birth rate serve not so much to actually encourage more births but to imbue the Biffers with a sense that ‘their’ race is in peril, international statistics on normalisation of immigrant birth rates notwithstanding.

Religion

The Biffers don’t act like Christians (except perhaps for the congregation of the Westboro Baptist Church) but they repeatedly claim to be Christians. They appeal to the dispossessed and the downtrodden in the same way that early Christians did in Judea and beyond. By hijacking established tenets of traditional Christianity they can present a seemingly familiar front for their decidedly unfamiliar neo-nazism.

The comments from their supporters show just how effective this tactic is as people use a religion that speaks of peace to justify the hatred of fascism, apparently without the slightest sense of irony.

Nationality

Nationalism is their biggest theme, of course. This is the mainstay of Britain First’s raison d’etre as they work toward an all-British, all-white and decidedly Aryan Britain. So the group identity of Britishness is pushed hard. And the sheeple respond.

Perceived threat

It’s not enough to establish group identity though. That doesn’t engender hatred. For really fervent malice it’s necessary to pretend that the group is under attack, preferably from those too weak to defend themselves. Groups like minority religious populations or desperate refugees.

Exaggerated horror to come

The technique is simple. Identify with the in group. Breed fear of the out group and then play on the peoples’ newly installed fears.

Hatred

Then sit back and watch the hatred develop. It doesn’t have to be rational – it just has to be visceral.

Hostility

Once that groundwork has been completed it’s a short step to turn fear and hatred into open hostility and the volunteers to fund or create violence come forward of their own accord.

Malice

Keep fuelling the fire with perceived obstructions to ‘our’ way of life or evidence of ‘alien’ activities to underscore the problem ‘our group’ faces and let the people whip themselves up into their own frenzy of malice.

And watch the hatred you planted all those memes ago grow and bear fruit.

Beer 2Christmas parties for landlords are strange affairs, all arguing who has the cheapest pint, the best ales or the most weird cash and carry vodka,
but this week it’s all been about the airstrikes in Syria, the possible hike in taxes on alcohol, whether scampi fries, cheesy moments and bacon snaps have a sell by date, Pork Scratchings or Twiglets and Britain Bloody First. The other problem with them is they last over 3 days and you can only take Ibuprofen every 4 hours.

The airstrikes that our government is carrying out in our name is a bone of contention to EBF followers as well as the admins. We ummed and arred long enough over whether to cover this on the page, but knowing that the horrible buggers over at Bifferland will be relishing in it we decided to cover it. My opinion will remain just that although I’m far from happy with my own MP.

Knowing my fellow Landlords all have a hatred of racist bigots and extremists quite a lot gets talked about in our get togethers (or piss ups as the Landlady likes to call them) about the Biffers and their even more intolerant cohorts the EDL. David has owned a pub just on the outskirts of Rotherham and has had many a visit from the Taliban Hunters Club. He gives them no quarter nor serve them or take any notice of their threats all nicely recorded for the police.

This week we had two hours in which we weren’t sure whether to crack open the champagne or the Cava, the Prosecco or the whisky as the Biffers appeared to be consigned to the dustbin. Meme’s were made, laughter floated around the office until a couple of my fellow admins realised nothing added up. Then the begging Email came out asking patriots to dig deep to take on Facebook. Then a miracle happened.

Facebook, scared of impending legal action from Britain First put the page back up. It must have been that, surely the Biffers don’t lie.

A lovely apology from a name at Facebook and all is well. Were they banned or did they unpublish to allow them to again look like victors in the face of indescribable odds, making Goldibollocks, Dutchy and Dowson out to be heroes. Again like so many cons of theirs… answers on a postcard (but do not put our name on it).

Before that there was a strategy meeting, in an office of all places along with whiteboard coffee and little biscuits (or pies in Stevie’s case). Was this another case of “look lads (and Slatter) it looks like all these nasty lefteyes have got a lot of crap on us and it’s starting to stick. That Exposing lot have declared war on us so we need to ramp up getting cash so we can get out of this with some dosh” and lo and behold another begging letter came out asking for more cash. This time to buy a gym so his activists can train in unarmed combat.

Now Folding is a failed MMA fighter (look it up on youtube but make sure you are near the toilet) and in the video they put up he did look quite good beating up a punchbag. But this is starting to get a little bit sinister. Once again, one of the people who run the gym asked them to take the video’s down saying that they didn’t want to be associated with the Biffers, as I write this the video is still up.

Also this week all pretence of the Knight Templars (other real groups are out there that are genuine and not money making) and the Biffers being seperate entities has all but disappeared. Is this  uncle Jim finally coming out and aligning KTI with them or was it always just another clever way of conning money out of scared, impressionable people.

A great article was put up by us from Tell Mama, regarding the possible recruiting and brainwashing of impressionable youngsters for right wing extremist groups. It is quite amazing. They argue about the radicalisation of muslim children when the far right are doing the same. We are against it all, right, left, religions or athiests forcing their dogma on young kids who should be mucking about in parks or on the Xbox.

Before I give up and slip further into my drinking shorts, David, the landlord from Rotherham, told me that why he hates Britain First with a vengeance. He was enjoying a pint after work with his mate from the Indian Restaurant up the road and a bloke walked in with a tatty green bin liner on. He was asking for money, he said, to help his battalion stop a newsagents being turned into an islamic meeting room. He said there were too many of this kind of thing springing up and that this was a christian country and all the other religions should go home.

Dave’s mate (a hindu) got up and told this person to fuck off and the guy walked off only to return with 6 mates all dressed alike. The biffers then starting hassling drinkers and staff. They said they would continue coming back until they got an apology from Dave. Unfortunately for them they had walked into a pub where shit is not taken. They were frogmarched to the door, thrown out and told not to come back and if they did there would be serious trouble. Since then he recieved nuisance calls, excrement on his doorway and visits from the police (Dave is an ex copper so that didn’t work). Dave isn’t giving up, in his own words these people are…

“Nothing but cowards, thugs people who pick on the weak, or those unable to fight back.”

He does fight back, as he tells me, watch this space.

So as I leave to get (yet) another pint I think it sums it up very well, Britain First, cowards, thugs and bigots. Facebook would be well rid of them. But the fight goes on to rid us of these conmen, these liars and cheats. EBF will continue to do so.

Time for some out of date Scampi fries, see if they really do stay edible for ages.

Cheers

Landlord

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 radicalising their kids!

As usual, Britain First has been out and about stirring up trouble. In a recent video they feature several ‘activists’, at least two of whom are minors.

We recently posted an article relating to the government’s anti-radicalisation drive. The article makes the obvious point that those most susceptible to intolerance and radicalisation are the young, the inexperienced, the naive.

Here we see the teenage daughter of a Biffer ‘RCO’ being put through her paces as the indoctrination continues. She’ll soon be a fully committed young racist if this abusive brainwashing is allowed to continue.

Yet again it appears that Britain First didn’t get the memo as they continue to indoctrinate children with their lies and distortions. For the Biffers it’s ‘business as usual’. For the rest of us it’s good thing that the British government is finally waking up to the dangerous absurdities that they preach.

If these kids were from Muslim households, social services would be all over them and their parents. We at EBF see no significant difference where Biffer households are concerned. Extremism is extremism and these children must be protected from the exploitative, radicalising influence of the far right, racist propaganda they’re currently being exposed to.

Here’s hoping for some swift intervention!
