In the run up to an English Defence League demonstration In Keighley this August checking out the official Yorkshire division fan page is a must if you want to see what kind of people are going to be visiting your town.
After recently being exposed as advocating defecating on a Koran to their followers, the EDL halfwit who insists Muslim contributors to the page ‘string a sentance together’ and who in charge of the division did some self editing of their online conduct but missed this:
“Matthew, You use the word colonising and I like that word because if I had my way that is exactly what I would do. I would take all the Muslims who wanted to stay here and I would colonise them and treat them like the dirty filthy stinking bastard dogs that they are.
Slow torture, starvation and all the other things that go to making the rest of their stinking evil war mongering lives as bad as it could possibly get.” - Tina Young
This comment left by Tina and many others on the division page are never moderated because the Yorkshire division leadership wouldn’t recognise them as being unacceptable. the reason for this being they approve of them. in light of the unlawful attitude both leadership and supporters have towards British Muslims and their willingness to use the internet to distribute this material, we believe the English Defence League should be proscribed under racial and religious hatred legislation and should not be afforded the right to demonstrate.

Heterosexual marriage remains the normal relationship for valid sexual activity. However, in accordance with the gospel of God’s grace, sexual deviance disqualifies no one for Church membership provided it is accompanied by repentance and a change of life-style. Therefore all sin - including homosexuality - may be forgiven but no unrepentant sinner has any place in the fellowship of the Church of Christ.”
Pastor Alan Clifford is the pastor of the Norwich reformed church. The EDL have involved themselves in this and announced a demo in Norwich as the pastor has been banned from handing out literature in the town centre by the council after complaints about anti islam material. His views on sexuality are quite clearly homophobic. How does this work with the EDL’s anti homophobia stance? Or is it only Muslim homophobia they have an issue with?
It would seem that once again the EDL have decided that their enemies enemy is their friend.
http://nrchurch.limewebs.com/islam5.htm Dear Friends,
"However unpalatable or non-pc the truth is to many people today, we need to know the facts about Islam. While the racism of the BNP is abhorrent, Nick Griffin’s recent Newsnight remarks regarding Islam are correct: “We have a monster in our midst.” Here is some documentary proof for this alarming statement. The only antidote to this evil religion is the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ. May God graciously restore its presence and influence in our country!”
I am not a EDL supporter much like many others. On the eve of the demonstration in Bristol (Friday 13th) I somewhat took to Twitter in voicing my opinion. The response I got from a ”Marc Hagan” who professed to be a supporter shocked me most: ”You clearly know fu** all about the #edl - you…
BNP public support for Anti defence cuts protest roundly rejected by organiser and supporters
An online movement recently catching the imagination of the forces community struggles to stave off public support from the racially motivated British National Party. With press releases going out on a national scale last Thursday, it must have been disappointing to organiser Dee Edwards that the only group to recognise her efforts and promote it was the BNP. Their article on the official web sites highlights both her cause and provides links to the facebook group. The group was set up to coordinate a national presence at war memorials across the country next Saturday to protest against defence cuts recently announced.
Expose is heartened to see both Dee and her supporters unequivocal rejection of the BNP’s commitment to get involved, choosing to preserve the moment as ‘non- political’, it’s a tricky stance to take when protesting against government policy but I think they could pull it off? I suspect they mean they are single issue rather than non-political. We hope they attract cross party support for their aims because having the BNP back you exclusively is cause suicide as forces campaigners have learnt the hard way.
The group, only just taking off, has already began to tackle challenges from supporters who fear their participation in political protests at war memorials is deeply inappropriate. Ms Edwards has been swift and frank to accept that when they launched their campaign they hadn’t fully considered the locations or the title of their movement. By starting to recognise staging protests at war memorials is frankly abhorrent, no one can accuse the group organisers of not being responsive to their supporters needs. Now being framed as a peacefully vigil near memorials the changes seem to cautiously welcomed if not causing an understandable small degree of confusion. We however, have confidence Dee Edwards will continue to communicate any further changes coherently. Particularly once her team start appreciating war memorials are never, ever used for political aims. By any one. They are certainly experienced in negotiating online conflict which holds them in good stead in this instance.
We believe the bold stance against the BNP’s aggressive efforts to hijack the reputation of our armed forces in this way is especially appropriate given the comments left by BNP supporters to their coverage of the protest:
BNP supporters are frankly fucking stooopid.
We salute Ms Edwards integrity in standing against the BNP in light of the fact that she is the patron of a charity initially run from BNP headquarters, by a BNP activist and has been promoted widely by the British National Party and the criminal lead English Defence League. Both organaisations documented as fundraising heavily for Ms Edward’s primary charity in the past. SOTS has received an enormous amount of negative press over the years in regard to its racist foundations and continues to do so in light of its founders controversial online conduct. A recent article in the observer challenged the integrity of the charity and reported a somewhat veiled threat made by the founder Bill Murray: ““I will just say ‘fuck it’ and close it down. And then all the lads on the street can suffer and I’ll name everybody that made us close it down. Anybody that stops it will be attacked for it and it won’t be nothing to do with us.” Dee Edwards charity has also recently been told to stay away from Edinburgh by local councilors in the Scottish press:
“Soldiers off the Street Scotland (SoS) is staging a two-day event in August, spending the night on the streets to “raise awareness of homeless ex-service personnel” and holding a collection the following day.
The group – which has previously been banned from holding fundraising events in the Capital – will begin their tour by first attending the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
But Craigentinny/ Duddingston councillor Alex Lunn has vowed to spread the message that the charity should be avoided.
He told the Evening News: “I would urge all people, whether Edinburgh residents or tourists, to avoid this group and avoid giving them money.”
It shows an enormous strength of character to stand up to friends and fellow forces campaigners with a stake in nationalist politics and shows a true dedication to her new project.
We wish all those involved success in peacefully campaigning against the travesty of forces cuts. To succeed in making an impact nationally with just over a week to coordinate and mobilise will be a great feat but we know you can pull it off. Don’t forget to buy your t shirt and continue to tell the racist BNP ‘hands off our forces’. there is nothing British about racial hatred.
The ‘Counter-Jihad’ movement was called to the attention of a Seminar on Wednesday about the Government’s action plan against extremism, attended by the Minister for Democracy, Birgitta Ohlsson, and the Security Police’s (SÄPO) top analysts. Ohlsson wants to have increased knowledge of it. SÄPO describe the movement as a new potential threat.
“We need a deeper understanding of the Counter-Jihad movement. It’s definitely one of my priorities within my portfolio. A lot’s happened in that environment the last couple of years.” Said Ohlsson.
Six months ago, the Government presented it’s action plan against violent extremism. The plan covers White Power, Anarchist and violent Islamist circles, but both SÄPO and the Minister for Democracy, Birgitta Ohlsson (Liberal), point out that it is important to watch the Counter-Jihad movement.
“We’re looking at Counter-Jihad as a new potential threat”, Jonathon Peste, SÄPO’s Chief Analyst for Counter-Terrorism, told Expo today.
“We’ve been watching the movement for a couple of years now. I should point out that amongst other things, Anders Behring Breivik followed the Counter-Jihad discourse. But his ideological mixture had more components. He saw himself as a modern Crusader, amongst other things.”
Peste won’t go into exact detail about how SÄPO work, but the internet is one place SÄPO pay attention to.
“We look at material on the internet to a certain degree, but there’s no comprehensive scanning. It wouldn’t be meaningful. The internet is one environment – and it’s quite a large environment – where at least the ideological basis for Counter-Jihad is transmitted.
Expo; “Are there any specific groups you’re looking at, like, for example, the English Defence League (EDL)?” Peste; “The English Defence League is certainly something we’re watching, and we’re investigating whether equivalent Swedish Groups have been formed.” Expo; “Are there people in Sweden that you’re keeping an eye on?” Peste; “I can’t go into detail about how we work, but we’re well informed of the situation”.
In August, influential representatives of the Counter-Jihad movement will be demonstrating in Stockholm. American ideologues such as Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer will be participating, and the English Defence League’s spokesman, Tommy Robinson, has been announced as one of the speakers. Several of the EDL’s sister organisations from different countries will be participating. Jonathon Peste chooses not to comment on how he views the demonstration.
