"But someone like you won’t do that, will you? It’s far easier for you to remain ignorant and bigoted, to be fed outdated views that have been spoon-fed to you by other, equally ignorant and bigoted individuals. You have a distorted view of history, a perverse sense of your own racial superiority and your place in a modern society."
English Defence League use social networking to hunt down high school kids
Names, addresses, personal pictures, phone numbers, email addresses, school networks,work details. the obvious question is, what for?
Yet another facebook group has appeared on the scene created by English Defence League supporters. This one created to ‘expose’ the details of so called lefties. Worryingly it posts the personal contact details of high school students including addresses and mobile numbers and is of grave concern. What the fuck is wrong with the English defence league?
"The EDL-BFP lash-up is a new attempt at realignment. It brings together the two elements of a classic fascist organisation – an electoral, suit-wearing BFP wing and the EDL’s army of street thugs – in an open alliance of linked organisations.
The EDL’s announcement was made at a meeting of core activists in Birmingham by EDL leader Stephen Yaxley Lennon (AKA “Tommy Robinson”). Other senior EDL leadership figures, who avoid the limelight, have also pushed the turn to the BFP.
A report posted on both the “British Freedom” and EDL websites says: “The EDL will utilise their divisional structure to support British Freedom.”
Unite, Unison and the TUC said they were taking the prospect of disruption by far-right supporters seriously, and had begun to liaise with police to assess any risk to pickets or those on protest marches. The development follows signs that splinter groups from the English Defence League are broadening their campaign from targeting Muslims to trade unionists and socialist organisations. Members of the EDL have recently been involved in attacks on anti-racist and anti-cuts protesters, as well as attempting to target the Occupy movement which has camped outside St Paul’s Cathedral.
"Liverpool Division English Defence League EDL It now seems the left wing media and its writers at the Guardian are now joining the attack on this division, google “splinter groups target trade union”. We do not support their communist values therefore were racists. We will oppose the left wherever they show their ugly face. We are NOT against the working class, we are against your organisation to quote John Snowy “We have decided to put all our efforts into opposing everything you do regardless of the issue at hand, it’s your organisations we oppose.” He adds: “Every event you hold will be a potential target along with your meetings, fund raisers and social events.” (KH)
'Patriots' react to news Stephen Lennon is leaving EDL for politics
"HA HA HA no surrender eh, Stephen? Who is going to elect a convicted wife beater, football hooligan, coke dealer, assaulter of soldiers, grass? Your mates will all spell X wrong anyway. Go on, fuck off. Get out of my England, no one wants you here, not even the EDL. Good lord, how must that feel? The scum of the land want rid of you. How does Alan Lake feel about this, you turncoat, copper’s nark?"
A Muslim Rangers supporter who chanted sectarian remarks at a game at Ibrox Stadium has been fined £600.
Abdul Rafiq, 41, the only Muslim member of the English Defence League, was arrested at Rangers friendly game with Chelsea on 6 August.
At Glasgow Sheriff Court he pleaded guilty to religiously aggravated breach of the peace by shouting, swearing and uttering sectarian remarks.
Sheriff John McCormick also imposed a five year football banning order

English Defence League Mirror Breivik’s words in chilling facebook update.
Part of a statement allegedly made by Anders Breivik in the opening of his court case in Norway has bizarrely been adopted as an English Defence League status update on their official facebook page. The update which literally blew out of the water the EDL insistence that within their movement ‘black and white unite’ addresses identical concerns to the Norwegian terrorist. In Court on Monday, refusing to accept its legitimacy, Breivik has been reported by Norwegian tabloid VG to claim: “You have received your mandate from the organizations that support multiculturalism in Norway. Multiculturalism is an ideology of hatred, which is designed to deconstruct the Norwegian ethnic group. To deconstruct Norwegian ethnic group, is the same as ethnic cleansing.”
We noted with concern that the EDL update was something you could place next to a pre war Hitler with seamless ease but to see such blatant similarity in rhetoric between Stephen Lennon’s movement and a mass murderer is alarming. Were they aware Breivek had only days previously made exactly the same claims or are they not even aware of how close in ideological terms they are to the man? Stephen Lennon has already stated he understands why Breivik did what he did, adding:
“We share some of his opinions, and his fear, but not what he did in Norway 22 July. I do not think he is insane. I think that his approach was insane.” “Breivik dared to come forward with his opinions, and was tough, in some regards. People need to understand that Breivik is not alone in these feelings.”
Really, what I would have liked, no expected from a leader of an organisation followed by mostly disenfranchised, angry young men would be an absolute, categorical condemnation of Breivik. Nothing less. Stephen however has always flirted with the radicalisation of the movement while resenting any accusations of extremism. Recently we noted an update from a young EDL supporter who, after observing what he assumed to be Muslims on a bus felt like ‘getting a nail gun out on the cunts’ … here he is pictured with Tommy. http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=263632857022863&set=o.174993392556452&type=1&theater
So there are very fragile individuals in the EDL attending demonstrations, socialising with Stephen Lennon and reading every update the English Defence League post on their official fan page. 18 thousand people were given the views of a man who shot children at point blank range under the guise of the EDL. If they knew they were saying exactly the same thing as him they should be proscribed and if they didn’t, they definitely should be.
I’m not even going to start on the blatant white supremacism of the update, I have added a link to a blog which covers that nicely.
“freedom of expression is a privilege not a right. With that privilege comes responsibility”
"In the last 66 years we as a nation, as a race have had our national identity stolen from us by politicians who have forced us to accept multiculturalism. They have and still are practicing cultural genocide on their own people, despite warnings that we will not accept it."

We are appealing directly to the anarchtits, socialtits, lefttits, anti capitaltits and any other social misfit camped outside St Paul`s Cathedral, while we have observed your peaceful right to protest while taking the piss out of our religon, we feel that you have crossed the line by “spraying baby killers” on the RBL Poppy Stall and even stopping this sundays rememberence service there. We ask you to respect the wishes of the people and disperse by 12am Friday morning. Our government may be too weak to deal with you, but these are our streets and We Are The People.”—http://www.facebook.com/EDL.EnglishDefenceLeague.NS?sk=wall
