Awesome?: A petition to get Nick Griffin banned from Twitter.

The friendly face of fascism

For my overseas readers who may not be aware, Nick Griffin is the moron, I mean shit stain, I mean leader of the British National Party. The BNP is a far right political party in Britain that is more often referred to as the Nazi party. Now don’t get me wrong here, I’m not some pot smoking lefty trying to have a crack at a right wing party. These guys are serious. Their members consist of skin head football hooligans and their policies are obviously racist and discriminate against anyone who isn’t white or who’s ancestry isn’t British. Policies of the BNP include:

The BNP plans to build an institution in Barking & Dagenham for all mothers under 21 to live in, with single mothers and babies taken into care. Failure to comply with the homes rules could result in the mother being sent to prison and the baby being taken into to care.

In Barking and Dagenham, the BNP voted against congratulating British athletes on their success at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It does not consider athletes such as Amir Khan and Kelly Holmes to be British, and previously held a policy of supporting Denmark – and not England – in a World Cup as the only all-white team.

The BNP would deport anyone who wasn’t English(white).

As I’ve stated earlier the current leader of the party is a man called Nick Griffin. He is often seen posing for pictures with his fingers in a V for victory sign in homage to Winston Churchill, whom he often compares himself to. But, look at some of his quotes and you’ll see there’s not much of a similarity between the two.

On the Holocaust
I am well aware that the orthodox opinion is that 6 million Jews were gassed and cremated or turned into lampshades. Orthodox opinion also once held that the earth is flat… I have reached the conclusion that the ‘extermination’ tale is a mixture of Allied wartime propaganda, extremely profitable lie, and latter-day witch-hysteria.”

On Race
Without the White race, nothing matters. [Other right-wing parties] believe that the answer to the race question is integration and a futile attempt to create ‘Black Britons’, while we affirm that non-Whites have no place here at all and will not rest until every last one has left our land.”

On power
When the crunch comes, power is the product of force and will, not of rational debate. We have to have a body of trained young men capable of defending our organisation. If people come to crack our heads we will break theirs.”

On Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf
The chapter I most enjoyed was the one on propaganda and organisation – there were some really useful ideas there.”

On The Klu Klux Klan
“I shared a platform with David Duke, who was once a member of the Ku Klux Klan, a totally non-violent one by the way.”

On Hitler
“Adolf went a bit too far” -I seriously didn’t make that up. I wonder at what point he considers Hitler to have gone too far? When he caused the deaths of  fourteen million allied soldiers or when he gassed six million Jews?

The friendly face of fascism

Now, I must stress that 99% of people in Britain detest the BNP. Britain is a country made great by its diversity and different cultures and most people don’t even raise English flags any more for fear they will be aligned with the BNP. The only reason the BNP has been able to get anywhere recently is because everyone was so pissed off with the politicians after the expenses scandal (when they used tax payers money to pay their bills) that no one voted and so the BNP were able to get a little more room to manoeuvre. Anyway, allow me to get to the point here.

In 2010 gay couple Michael Black and John Morgan were turned away from a Berkshire B&B because of the beliefs of the devout Christian owner Susanne Wilkinson. They took her to court for discrimination and were awarded £3,600 in compensation.

Nick Griffin then composed a tweet saying: ‘If anyone can give us address of the 2 bullying “gay” activists who’ve won case v Christian B&B owners, we’ll hold demo … for rights of all home owners, gays included, to rent or not rent rooms to whomsoever they wish,’

Two hours later he tweeted again saying: ‘A British Justice team will come up to (their address) & give you (Black and Morgan) a … bit of drama by way of reminding you that an English couple’s home is their castle. Say No to heterophobia!’

A petition has now been made by Darren Milner to have Nick Griffin banned from Twitter for breaking the Rules Of Service which clearly states: Privacy: You may not publish or post other people’s private and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, street address or Social Security/National Identity numbers, without their express authorization and permission.
Violence and Threats: You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence against others.

Like I said earlier. I’m not just firing shots at someone who believes in something different to me. I’m firing shots at a bully who runs a political party that inspires hatred towards minorities and needs to be stopped. I know that this doesn’t affect those of you outside the UK but sign it in the name of justice.

Please spread the word and share the petition amongst your friends and family.
