Britain first’s radical creation

How many times has Britain first protested at Finsbury Park Mosque?

How many times has Britain first called for white non-Muslims to rise up and take action against the Muslim ‘invasion’?

How many times has Britain first told its followers that they’re in a civil war against Muslims?

How many white British people have been radicalised by Golding and Fransen?

BF EBF Finsbury Park Mosque propaganda

How many British Muslims will be radicalised by atrocities such as the one perpetrated against innocent worshippers at Finsbury Park in the early hours of this morning?

Britain First isn’t just a profiteering organisation making money off the back of radicalised racists. It’s also one of Daesh’s most effective recruitment mechanisms.

EBF BF Dowson Holy War crusade comboTheresa May has pledged to clamp down on far right hate preachers. We suggest she starts with Fransen, Golding, Lomax and Lewis. We demand that the British government proscribe Britain First as a terrorist organisation and place all its ‘officers’ and activists on trial under the prevention of terrorism act.

We demand that this is done without delay. We further demand that hate preachers like Katie Hopkins, Nigel Farage, Paul Nuttall, Tommy (Yaxley-Lennon) Robinson also stand trial for inciting hate crimes against Muslims, refugees, immigrants and non-whites.

Come on Prime Minister – you’ve said you’re serious about prosecuting hate preachers. Now’s the time to get on and do it. Let’s not have yet another U-turn.

Jo Cox, Paul Golding and Britain First’s indelible shame

We’ve waited a few days to post this. We wanted to let the dust settle a bit. We wanted to show respect for a grieving family and we didn’t want to join so many others in capitalising on the internet frenzy that always accompanies high profile killings. Jo Cox was many things apparently but she should never become mere clickbait at the height of a media frenzy.

Reuters Jo Cox MemorialLike the rest of the EBF team I’ve been unsure how to respond to this awful attack, not only on a young mother of two but upon the very nature of British representative democracy. The vigils that were held over the weekend across the country were not for Jo Cox personally. How could they be? Most of the attendees at these events, like me had never heard of her before Thursday. The mood of the nation isn’t grief – it’s outrage.

I won’t pretend to be racked with grief for a woman I never knew. I won’t do a hasty internet search and write a sentimental blog about Jo Cox as though she was an old friend I’ve known all my life. And I won’t be making any pretentious claims to know the precise details of the motivations that drove her killer, allegedly Tommy Mair to murder her in cold blood. I will be making a few observations about the far right and the way that groups like Britain First must acknowledge the blood indelibly staining their own hands.

Much has been said, written, shouted, even screamed about the words ‘Britain First’, apparently shouted by Jo’s murderer as he attacked. Whether he said ‘Put Britain First’, a campaign slogan for many in the nationalist/Brexit camp or whether he said merely ‘Britain First’, referring to the neoNazi group that regularly calls for British politicians to be executed seems to be a moot point. The undisputed fact is that Tommy Mair made clear his white supremacist and nationalist sentiments at the moment he (allegedly) carried out his crime. It is also obvious that this is a crime precisely in keeping with the rhetoric of Britain First.

EBF BF camping Wales ban the berkIt’s not clear whether or not Tommy Mair was associated directly with Britain First. He may have been. He certainly had aligned himself with overseas neo-Nazis. It seems unlikely that he’d never come across UK based Britain First as well. It is clear that a fully paid up Britain First ‘footsoldier’ (see the image left – that’s the name they give themselves) couldn’t have followed the party line any more accurately than Mair did last Thursday.

Paul Golding, leader of Britain First was quick to deny any association with Tommy Mair and denounce his crime. His video denial was in part an attempt to deny almost everything that Britain First has said over the last few years and partly an attempt to discredit the witnesses.

EBF BF policies conference 2015 1

Most ironic of all from the leader of a party which thrives on misrepresentation, half-truths and downright fabrication was his appeal for people to wait for the whole truth without jumping to conclusions.

Ok then Paul. We thought we’d help people uncover the whole truth, not about Jo Cox’s death, that’s for the courts but about the fact that this is exactly the sort of murderous, anti-democratic, neoNazi atrocity that you, personally, have been doing your damnedest to incite for the last five years. Team EBF has already published a number of PDF’s on your neoNazi approach to politics and society as a whole. But on this occasion I thought it might be a good idea to focus specifically on your bloodthirsty attitude to British politicians, your support for violent uprising and the way you incite others to murder them exactly as Jo Cox was murdered (perhaps I should say ‘assassinated’).

For those readers who don’t yet understand how Britain First operates or why responsibility for Jo Cox’s brutal murder can be laid so squarely at your door I’m going to spell it out. Please stop me if I’ve misunderstood anything. I’ll be using direct quotes from you, from Jayda and from uncle Jim together with screenshots of your own public pronouncements and internet memes to illustrate my points. You may not like what I have to say here but you’ll know it’s all true (which is more than can be said for your usual social media offerings).

Britain first and violence

Britain First has a long record of inciting violence. Founder Jim Dowson is well known for his desire to incite Holy War against Muslims. Britain first leader, Paul Golding is a former member of the ultra-violent National Front and the British National Party. His violent, white supremacist attitudes are obvious. Equally obvious is his tendency to lie and deceive in order to achieve his aims. Britain First’s Deputy Leader, Jayda Fransen is a former EDL ‘Angel’, another white-supremacist organisation which is equally well known for its violent assaults on British Muslims and non-whites.

EBF BF Dowson Holy War crusade comboIt’s hardly surprising that Britain First supporters are violent. They are spoon-fed violence at every turn. If it’s not fictitious threats from Islamic terrorists it’s frightening fantasies about perverted immigrants out to rape our children. The reality is completely different, of course but what do you and your buddies care about that, Paul? You know that refugees aren’t rapists and terrorists. You know that they’re just desperate people trying to escape a war they didn’t start or want. But they’re not the right colour so you use every dirty trick you can to slander them and all those who support their right to exist. And that’s why you hated Jo Cox. She saw through your lies, your slanders and your cheap, mean-spirited rhetoric and she had the courage to stand up against you.

Jo Cox MP BF comments

Jo Cox represented everything that you could never even hope to be. She was courageous, she was compassionate and she was dedicated to decency, truth and the joy of living a life free from petty prejudice and hatred. That’s why she opposed you. That’s ultimately why she died. You may or may not have given the order but your hands are soaked in her blood either way. You and Jayda have spent so long encouraging your followers to kill all who oppose you, including and especially our elected representatives that it’s impossible for you to distance yourselves from this barbarous murder. As Shakespeare’s Macbeth bewailed…

“Will all great Neptune’s oceans e’er wash this blood clean from my hands?

Or will this, my hand the multitudinous seas incarnadine, making the green one red?”

No amount of washing will clean your hands of the blood of Jo Cox – and we at EBF will do all we possibly can to see you and Fransen stand trial for the incitement that led to her vicious, politically motivated murder.

Britain First’s vicious leadership

Steve Lewis used to be Britain First’s Deputy Leader until the party realised that Jayda Fransen’s sex appeal was more useful in signing up a following of disaffected young men. Now he’s one of their quasi-military ‘Regional Commanding Officers’, regularly to be seen throwing punches at ‘lefties’ during their marches.

This is what this ‘high-ranking’ member of Britain First had to say about left wing politicians, among other people…

Steve Lewis eradicte lefties pic

In case you have any doubt about just what RCO Lewis means by ‘eradicated’, the words of the current Britain First Deputy Leader, Jayda Fransen below should make it quite clear.

Jayda hang traitors 1 image

Britain First has long called for the execution of left wing politicians whom they define as traitors. The extract above actually threatens labour politicians (among others) with execution. It’s part of a longer Email announcing leader, Paul Golding’s hopeless bid for the office of London Mayor. You can read the whole text of this murderous, racist and Islamophobic rant by clicking here.

Britain First and the political process

Britain First has always treated democracy with contempt. Ever since they first began in 2010 they have threatened, intimidated, harrassed and slandered political opponents at every turn. We know of several formerly outspoken ctitics of Britain First who found themselves needing police protection because of death threats issued by Britain First or their supporters. A number of left wing bloggers and activists have had their details published online by Britain First to intimidate them into silence.

Below we see a video still of Britain First’s ‘RCO’ Steve Lewis and ‘Armed Forces Offcier’, Robin Lomax intimidating a theatre group who dared to criticise Britain First and UKIP. Democracy means nothing to these people. Violence is the only change process they understand.

BF beyond UKIP cabaret invasion

Given the tragic events of last week it’s not hard to see why Britain First’s intimidatory tactics are so often effective. Few people are courageous enough to put their families at risk from fanatical neoNazis with a grudge. We at Exposing Britain First understand this only too well. That’s why we protect our anonymity so seriously. We have seen and heard what happens when Britain First locates those who oppose them and it’s not pretty. The chilling tweet below from Britain First’s leader, Paul Golding illustrates precisely what lies in store for any Britain First critic who dares to reveal their identity.

BF bullying payback What sort of political party

Britain First does not respect democracy. It is an organisation dedicated to silencing all opposition by any means at its disposal.

 

And that includes executing opposition politicians…

EBF BF Hang all traitors politicians nooseWe at Exposing Britain First have been saying for years now that it’s only a matter of time before Britain First’s propoganda leads to the death of a labour politician. We believe that they have already managed to incite their ‘footsoldiers’ to commit at least one murder of an innocent Muslim. We called for the British government to proscribe this violent group of neoNazis then and we continue that same demand today.

Proscribe Britain First for the hate-filled, murderous, fascist, extremist, terrorist organisation that it really is.

We have deliberately delayed publishing this article out of respect for Jo Cox and her family. We have no wish to make political capital out of this tragedy but equally we couldn’t just remain silent. The balance between smugly shouting

“We told you so”

and trying to demonstrate the truth about Britain First to the population at large is a fine one.

That’s why we waited until today to spell out our thoughts. We did so out of respect. But now it’s time to speak out.

The tragic assassination of Jo Cox may or may not have been committed by a fully paid up member of Britain First. Either way there can be no doubt that their endless deceit and incitement has played a part in influencing her killer. Tommy Mair certainly knew of Britain First. There’s good reason to suspect that he may even have accompanied Britain First on marches and demonstrations when they came to Yorkshire. The person in this widely circulated photograph may or may not be Mr. Mair. We genuinely don’t know. So far Britain First have refused to identify this BF activist who demonstrated with them in Dewsbury in 2015.

Possibly Tommy Mair Dewsbury BF demo

Whether Tommy Mair is the mysterious Dewsbury activist or not, his comments both at the scene and subsequently in court are unmistakeably ‘Biffer’.  Not for the first time, Fransen and Golding seem to have been instrumental in persuading a British citizen to commit an act of terrorism on British soil.

Proscribe Britain First now!

 

We fixed your meme for you

We all agree that what happened in Brussels this week is terrible.

We all agree that killing innocent people in the name of any religion or ideology is an awful crime.

We all agree that there can be no justification for this sort of atrocity.

Terrorists like ISIS (AKA Daesh), Anders Behring Breivik, Dale Jones and Damien Hunt are the lowest of the low and their victims deserved none of what happened to them. Organisations like this one that incite extremist violence deserve our condemnation too.

Death is no respecter of persons and terrorists exist across many political and ideological platforms. So we’re sure that Britain First didn’t mean to ignore the vast majority of victims who were killed by terrorists who weren’t Muslims. Surely they don’t want to ignore the many slaughtered by right wing Christian groups or white supremacist militia in America. We don’t imagine they’d like to forget the poor victims of anti Muslim mosque bombings and street violence or the innocents who died at the hands of political terrorists in coups across the world that have absolutely nothing to do with religion.

So we fixed their image for them.

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.

A view from a barstool #6

Beer 2This is a hard one to write. I sit perched on my stool supping a pint, thinking of those people in Paris and Lebanon who have lost their lives at the hands of terrorists and actually seriously wondering if all that I and my colleagues do at EBF is really worth it. To counter bigotry and extremism, to hold Mr Golding and Ms Fransen to task. Is it really worth it in the end or should we just call it a day and hide behind our sofa’s hoping that all this is just a horrible dream? Then I realise that we have to fight extremism in all its forms. As a Billy Bragg song quite rightly said…

“If you wake up to find your paper is Tory,

Just remember there are two sides to every story.”

In the office today there is a sense of disbelief, a surreal silence between all of us, not knowing what to post, what to hold back, what to say or do. We realise the horrors of what happened and the retribution that the western powers will exact. We also realise what the far right will be doing, wringing their hands in pretend sadness whilst secretly doing a victory dance.

Paris attack November 2015 2So here I am beginning now to hear some facts, not some conjecture that the media get from so called experts or from reporters reporting what some other reporters are reporting but some hard facts and we won’t get all of these until into next week. So all I can say is that these people were murderers, terrorists under the flag of Daesh, not of Islam. Many Muslims have come onto social media once again to say it was not in their name. The British Council of Muslims share the horror that all of us showed. Muslims whom I know are resigned to giving out the ‘Not in my name’ again even though I and most others realise they don’t need to.

It seems to me that the powers that be want to blame the whole of the Islamic faith for this outrage at the hands of Daesh. But when the outrage is in the US or in Norway and other places in this world of ours they aren’t so quick to condemn other religions. I’m not heavily into politics nor am I religious but all this seems crazy to me. How many times do we see the west condemn what is going on in Gaza? How many times do we see the west condemn what is happening in Zimbabwe, things which happen on a daily basis and react with the terror that they did over this weekend? Answers on a postcard, please.

The truth of the matter in my opinion…

These killers, these terrorists, these murderers have not killed in the name of any religion nor for any political gain. They have murdered these people because they are murderers.

Now I will sit quietly in my corner, in front of a raging fire and raise my glass in a salute to those who died in Paris and in Lebanon in salute.

Britain First: Martyrs, victims and pseudo-saviours

Question: How do you turn otherwise reasonable people into bloodthirsty cash cows?

Answer: That’s easy – just follow the formula.

First – you need to find some really big lies and keep repeating them. It doesn’t matter that they’re outrageous – repeat them regularly enough with conviction and people will believe you all the same.

Propoganda GW Bush 2005

Second – find a threat to scare people with. That can come from just about anyone but for really effective ‘fear propaganda’ you should identify someone visible but too few in number to stand much chance when the mob turns nasty.

EBF BF Islam trojan horse refugee paper rebut debunk

Third – identify ‘your people’. This should be a group of people that’s very much bigger than the group you’re pretending is a threat.

EBF BF white genocide

Fourth – identify victims. You must point to people who have been harmed by the ‘threat’ (even if it’s not true). Without victims to demonstrate the threat it’s harder to convince the mob (and without the mob on your side you have precisely nothing).

EBF BF oregon shooter Muslim

Fifth – Even though there’s no real threat you need to present yourself as the popular solution to the problem you’ve invented. If possible find ways to pretend that you’re taking great risks on behalf of ‘your people’. The braver and more popular you seem the more grateful ‘your people’ will be.

BF EBF Jayda lies Burton percentage from Twitter

Sixth – create willing martyrs (it’s not helpful to be a martyr yourself). You need to stay around to profit from other peoples’ martyrdom, not to join them in their misery. Incite others to make stupid gestures, perpetrate crimes and commit acts of violence that you’re not really prepared to do yourself. It’s OK for you to say nasty things so long as there’s no comeback but if there’s any actual violence to be done you need others for that. Then any serious prosecutions will affect them, not you.

BF KFC poppy worker sacked lie

Seventh – Even though others take the fall you can profit from the argument that you are at great risk yourself. Get yourself arrested on minor charges regularly – it’ll make you seem like the victim of police harassment or a conspiracy by ‘the establishment’. Remember that ‘the establishment’ will be interpreted by your followers as whoever they’re most frightened of so DON’T ever be too specific. Let your followers imagine their own version of ‘The man’.

golding-arrested-creationism-video

Eighth – Your martyrs aren’t important as people – only as martyrs. Don’t waste your own time and money trying to help them. Their sacrifice is necessary for your gain.

ahmed murder martyr Rotherham

Ninth – keep trying to provoke backlash from the group you’ve identified as a threat. That way you get evidence of their hostility that you can use to demonise them even more. This will keep your paranoid followers convinced about the threat you imagined and also keep them devoted to (and donating to) you, personally.

Remember above all that you must have martyrs – and lots of them. If the supply of victims from your in group dries up your persuasive appeal will dry up along with it. Whatever else you do, no matter how much you have to lie you absolutely MUST keep people frightened of the out group you’ve chosen to represent the threat.

Ideally of course it’s better if there really are victims to capitalise on – they’re always the best for raising funds but if you can’t find any real victims there’s nothing to stop you making some up. Often you don’t even need to be specific – people are much more likely to respond to emotion than to actual information. Just make them feel threatened and they’ll think they know much more than they actually do.

As a Shepherd, your job is to keep the Flock interested enough to follow you. They need to identify both threats and Martyrs. If you’re really lucky someone will get badly hurt or killed – the propaganda value of tragedy can never be over-estimated.

A terrorist attack is like Gold in your bank account and if you’re persistent you can keep its memory alive to profit from for years to come.

What you really want is the slaughter of innocent people on Britain’s streets. You can make a fortune from that!

Be careful though – even the terminally stupid will work out that they’ve been conned eventually. This sort of deception, successful though it is in the short-term, won’t last forever.
