I thought I’d give a few examples of just how the EDL think and how their thought patterns don’t really conform to most people’s definition of reality.
Muslims and Asians
As noted previously the EDL go out of their way to make a big fuss any time grooming gangs are referred to as “Asian”, insisting that they be called “Muslim” instead. This is entirely down to them having to keep up the pretence that they are against Islam as a religion and not just a bunch of “Paki-bashing” racists. References to members of their victim group as “Asian” merely underline what they’re really about, so they hate it.
Just how stupid the picture is can be summed up thus.
1. They have multiple different ethnic groups on there from Asia (some of whom, like Burma and India, may well be Muslims), which they collectively refer to as the “Asian race”, but leave out Pakistanis. Pakistan being an Asian country.
2. The grooming gang in the photo consists of men of Pakistani origin.
3. Saying they should be called Muslims as “Asian” covers many different ethnicities is hypocritical, because “Muslim” covers many different ethnicities including Turks, Albanians, Moroccans, Malaysians Somalis and Nigerians, none of whom are represented in the above “Muslims” image.
We have no free speech
There’s a line between free speech and mere rabble-rousing hatred. The EDL don’t believe it should apply to them, although they’re happy to call for Anjem Choudary to be hanged for what he says, when in truth he’s no different from them. If they themselves had no free speech they wouldn’t have been at liberty to chat shite for the last five years.
Craig Carrick Holsgrove has been suspended from his job for saying he thinks Muslims are paedophiles and that’s because we have no free speech….but wait, how are they able to write this if they have no free speech? No, dear Craig, the law says you can’t go round whipping up hatred of minority groups by the use of libellous bullshit. How would he feel if some Muslim said he was a paedophile due to Jimmy Saville being white and a Christian?
Craig Carrick Holsgrove I’ve just been suspended because of the views I have. I put on twitter that I believe Muslims are paedo’s, this got reported to the police and the police reported my tweet to my company. I am devastated and heartbroken that something I know is true and something I truly believe in has resulted in me being a victim of my own view
Martin Guthrie have they removed free speech in this country now, being truthful is not racism.
Craig Carrick Holsgrove I will stand my ground Martin. We are the minority that is now silenced. It is true that in the book they believe in is represented by a prophet that married a 6 of 7 year old. This gives the deranged a reason to believe that it is ok to rape children
Caroline Queeny Bannon Im so sorry this has happened to you craig.
Craig Carrick Holsgrove It’s fine thanks Caroline. Goes to show what a toilet of a country we’ve become
Rob Bellis Social media is no longer a safe place to air your views….I too have fallen prey to my loss of free speech….sorry to hear that your ability to provide for you and yours has been stripped due to the political correctness need to pander to scum
Rehan Talreja i cant believe this happened in …..UK….?…….i mean isnt free speech a pillar on which democracy stands?
Looking at the tweet (since removed) he does appear to be labouring under the false impression that the Qu’ran advocates paedophilia. It doesn’t. In fact it would appear there are all sorts of things in the Qu’ran according to the EDL that a search reveals aren’t actually in there. According to the EDL the Qu’ran even allows for having sex with goats! The EDL seem happy to accept baseless rumours as fact, so I suspect the ground upon which Mr. Holgrove intends to stand will collapse under his feet the moment he cites the Qu’ran as evidence.
I found this one particularly funny!
Oh no, they’ve taken his human rights away from him and are treating him like a terrorist or extremist! Please send money, because he’s helped the cause in the past!
So he’s got 45 months inside for violent disorder at the EDL’s Walsall demonstration. A bit violent ain’t he?
And do this….
….make you think that he’s anything other than a violent, racist maniac? Oh, and Mrs Schultz can forget about getting any help from the EDL, because they probably forgot about Richard Schultz the moment he got sent down.
